Are you melting yet? We are starting to and we are still in the Old Pueblo. When we get to Mesa we will start to boil. Smile!

We just got back from breakfast at "Gus Balones" and the food was as good as ever.  My pork chops were huge and I could only eat one of them. Burp! "Mi Scusa por favore".

I am caring for Chris and Elise is on her way to the gym. As soon as "La Donna" returns we will be on our way. We hope that your Hump Day goes well.

Chat at you later...Jessie

Loraine, I agree with you whatever floats one's boat, and I hope that a life vest is on hand to prevent a problem. Smile! Can you feel me?

"The Blacker The Berry The Sweeter The Juice!"

Marcie my sister enjoy your girlie day.

Hump Day!

Good Morning!

Mood: Content! Knocked Boots!

  It's a Hump Day! How are you doing today? I started the day off at 5:00am caring for Chris. Elise is in her cave this morning but she will be up and on the go soon. Any plans for today?

  The coffee is good and a second cup will be enjoyed at "Gus Balones". We are going to enjoy breakfast there this morning.Can you say raisin toast? We will for sure.

  Jayne will be here this afternoon to care for Chris while we are away in the oven of Phoenix. We are looking forward to this trip but not the record breaking heat.

  I just chatted with Alexa and she said that I only have one task to complete today. Whew!

  Well, I need to see if my (mojo) is going to work in this heat.Have a good Humper and stay cool.
Later....Jessie and Elise

Good Night!

Good Night!

Hey we are melting here in the Old Pueblo. Yikes! It is 110 degrees right now and it is still climbing. I need a margarita gallon size. Smile! I just got a text from JT and he said it is 120 right now in Chandler. Turn me over on the other side because this side is done.

Elise, Chris and I were watching "Outlander" on Amazon. It is such a good series. In the middle of the second episode I had to tend to Chris. His catheter was hanging on and leaking big time. So I had to put him to bed and clean him up. I also had to take apart his chair cushion to clean it and I had to also clean his Hoyer sling as well. He is resting now watching his TV.

After  tending to Chris I put the fur-babies in there pool and Buttercup loved it today. Azalya not so much, but she didn't have a choice in the matter at all. Man it is hot out here. We have a bit of a breeze and it is like you are in an oven. We have a few clouds building but I doubt if we will see any of the wet stuff. If we do I will be out in it with my flip flops on and nothing else. Really! Hopefully my girlfriend Loraine will join me in it. Right girlfriend?

Elise prepared breakfast for dinner. We had homemade pancakes, sausages, eggs and coffee. Yes, I said coffee and I know that sounds nuts but it was all good. Smile! Elise is in her office on her desktop. I will be heading back over to Chris's house in a few minutes to start his evening routine and care.

Hey, I am all packed and ready to hit the road tomorrow making our way to Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert. Jayne will be here caring for Chris while we are away. The appointment with United Healthcare went well this afternoon.

Well, I had better get back to Chris. Have a wonderful evening and stay cool and dry.

Buona Notte!......Jessie and Elise

Dottie, glad that you made it to Maine safely. It is only 70 degrees there you lucky girl you. Enjoy and we will see you when you return to Tucson. Love Ya!



Are you melting like I am? Man it is hot already here in the valley of Tucson. Whew! It is going to be a major oven in Phoenix.

I got all of my tasks and errands taken care of. All I need to do now is pack up my suitcase. A representative will be here at 2:00pm to discuss healthcare plans and changes for Chris.

I really could use a nice ice cold (birra) about right now. Yeah Mon'. We hope that you are staying cool? 

Tricky Tuesday!

Good Morning!

Mood: Content!

Music listening to: Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul

   It's a Tricky Tuesday! How are you doing? I started the day off at 5:00am caring for Chris. Elise popped up with me to start her day. Any plans for today?

   The coffee just finished brewing and my cup is full. I will enjoy a second cup during my (me) time out on the front porch. Jayne will be here this morning to care for Chris.

    Alexa, is on my case already. I have a busy To Do List for today. I need to get everything done before we start to sizzle like bacon.

    My shorty's suitcase is already packed and mine is still empty but I will remedy that today. Have a good Tricky Tuesday and enjoy the day.

Good Night!

Good Night!

How are you? Are you smokin' hot like we are here in the Old Pueblo? Man it is hot and it is going to continue to get hotter over the next few days. Whew!

Elise prepared chili for dinner. We had baby carrots, sliced tomatoes, cottage cheese and crackers.  It was very good. We watched "Outlander" on Amazon and Chris loved it.

I am caring for Chris tonight and Elise is in her office on her desktop. We have started to lay out what we are going to pack for our stay-cation.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day for me. It is the official packing day for me. We will check and recheck to make sure we have all that we need for the trip. I also will gas up the Fiat 500L Trekking as well.

We hope that your day has gone your way? I am a believer in moving forward. I plan and I always have a backup plan as well. I thank my parents for my discipline and I thank my shorty for making sure I stay on track. I make it a point to learn something new everyday. No matter how small it may be.

Have a good night and sleep well. Stay cool,calm and collected.
Nite......Jessie and Elise

Country Granny, it was good to hear from you and Bob today.

JT, good to hear from you today. See you in a few days.

Loraine, good advice not to sink into the asphalt of Phoenix. We will try to stay indoors as much as we can girlfriend. Thank you!



How are you doing? I just completed all of my tasks on my To Do List for today, so now I can chill a bit. Smile!

Chris is resting nicely listening to his radio. Well it is supposed to be 113 degrees today and I bet that it gets hotter than that. Whew!

The fur-babies didn't want to be in the dog pool yesterday but I put them inside anyway. As soon as they got out it was a lot of shaking and then they did a few laps around the backyard. Nutty fur-babies.

We are looking forward to our trip to Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert on Wednesday. We will spend time with our niece the beautiful Sara on Wednesday. On Thursday we will have dinner with JT and George. The 23rd and 24th we will stay with Sheila and the pugs. We are going to meet up with Amanda and Lloyd for dinner. It is going to be a good stay-cation but we are going to melting in Phoenix. Whew!

Hope that you are doing OK? Work smarter not harder!
