Brenda, I use a tablet almost constantly, rarely using my computer. To compose a post or to reply to one, a box comes up for typing. Under that there are prompts for URL, italics etc.

Click on that and type into the space provided. The heading is Instant UBB code. There is no need to type, then to try to select what you want to do with it. Just follow instructions. Then use the Add reply button.

There is no provision for font change or to change size. All the common needs are covered and if you need it, Styx has a thread for practice.

We are making progress every day! [Big Grin] My BFF just got her power back late last night, and she'll be leaving my home soon. [Frown] It's been nice having her here! I can't lift heavy limbs, or do too much clean up outside, but I'm happy to have a haven for those who need it!

We have folks with destroyed homes, or unlivable homes because of flood damage and toxic mold. Please continue to pray for them. I feel so blessed that my damage is so slight. Hoping to get mine taken care of soon.

Oh, here are some pictures. You may enjoy the expert fix my BFF and I made on the mailbox post!

Oh, the pics are labeled underneath so you can understand what you're looking at!

Autumn has arrived in central Arizona! It's currently 79º and not expected to go over 86º today. I can hear lots of yard work being done around my neighborhood as people are taking advantage of the first pleasant Saturday in several months.

Unfortunately, they're predicting 100º again the beginning of October. [Frown]

[Big Grin] We refer to the process as 'redneck engineering'. I would guess the name of the substance used to repair things that move, and shouldn't, is split 50/50 between Duct and Duck tape. Of course we have another substance used for things that don't move and should. [Biased]

Exactly, Piglet! [Big Grin]

People seem amazed that I can immediately lay my hands on either duct tape as needed or WD-40. Well, of course! I am woman!

Once when the pastor and head of the trustees committee, both men, and I were inspecting some carpet threads that were loose and a danger to the older folks who would walk there, they were wishing they had brought their pocket knives to cut them off. I reached into my pocket and pulled out my (dainty) pocket knife and handed it to them. They looked at each other in amazement, then started a funny dialogue about their knitting needles and crochet hooks! [Killing me]

If it moves when it shouldn't, apply duct tape. If it doesn't move when it should, use WD-40.

Sometimes a bit more than wise words are needed.

Over my sink is a wind out hopper window which opens onto walkway ouside. It does not open far as people could walk into it but it provides a wonderful ventilation breeze when balcony door is open. It has been shut over winter because it was just unpleasant to have it open.

However, spring has well and truly sprung here . I tried to open it. That means leaning over sink, reaching up and turning window handle. I am short so there is problem #1. Yesterday the thumb on my right hand was badly swollen with arthritis which comes and goes. I could not shift the handle. I tried WD40 but no help as it was too high tfor me to spray the cable.

Then I had my grocery delivery from Colesworths. Their drivers are helpful, pleasant and efficient. 30 seconds after my asking, window was open.

Hurricane Irma update.

Daughter-Unit drove me south to near where Irma came ashore. There are still people with water in their homes. [Frown] Lots of destruction still around here. I felt pretty secure that my metal roof was safe. However, I saw some metal roofs that were peeled up from the eaves and curled up toward the peaks. Huge metal road signs on the interstate knocked down and bent in half. Trees snapped in two and completely de-leafed.

The good news, a lot of trees (including my elm) are shooting out new leaves! It's like Springtime again!

Yet, we have food, water and gas. The folks in Puerto Rico do not.

He seems to think that the people of Puerto Rico don't matter because some of them don't speak English, but honestly, he's not exactly eloquent himself (from the Washington Post article in Brenda's link):

"The loss of life — it's always tragic — but it's been incredible the results that we've had with respect to loss of life," Trump said. "People can't believe how successful that has been relatively speaking."

But, I have good news! Not about him. My sister and brother-in-law have sent me a check, which is to be cashed and distributed to those in need! [Big Grin] So, I will be driving to areas of need to find people who could use a little good news and help!

Time for some good news. I made my first delivery today to a mother of two who lost everything in the home she rented (without renter's insurance) and was living in her car with her children. When I gave her the message of prayers and hope from my sister and brother-in-law she cried. I'll be praying for her! She's moving into another rental place this weekend, so won't be homeless anymore. The money wasn't a huge amount, but maybe she can find some good used beds and things so they have a comfy place to sleep!

Time for some good news. I made my first delivery today to a mother of two who lost everything in the home she rented (without renter's insurance) and was living in her car with her children. When I gave her the message of prayers and hope from my sister and brother-in-law she cried. I'll be praying for her!

Anyone here going to the Women's Convention in Detroit at the end of October? My Dear Wife and her childhood friend will be there. I am not sure what it will achieve, but they are brave women.

The Weather People are promising that we will have a couple of cool mornings next week! Like upper 50's and lower 60's cool!

It's hard to believe, as we haven't had temps that low for many, many months.

Actually, I'll believe it when I see it. Weather People have been known to be wrong from time to time.

We have had unusually warm weather for October, until the last few days. Now the overnight lows are in the mid-thirties. The daytime temperatures still reach the sixties or seventies.

Sigh. TV weather is predicting 105F in my town Monday and Tuesday. [Frown] That'll break some records.

I expect the climate change deniers will claim that this shows that only in places where there is a majority not denying climate change, will it actually get warmer.
