One of my  is always getting ear infections.  Anyone know of a good home remedy for ear problems?  I hate to keep getting the antibiotic ear ointment.   

LOL

I answered you in my thread. I had a feeling you meant to ask it here instead of there.

 

I asked it everywhere, LOL.  I'll go look for your answer..thanks!

Three of my guys came from rescue with untreated chronic ear (yeast) infections. One had to be treated under sedation due to the swelling in his ears. I use Zymox. I use to get it from the vet but now get it online. The good thing about it is you don't clean the ears first. Less trauma for the dogs and me. I also have the vet strip their ears regularly when he comes out to do the donks and this helps to keep the problems under control. Hope this helps.

Seems ear/yeast infections are fairly common. Didn't realize that. Poor Brandi has been suffering from it for all her life, as it crops up this time of year for her.

Good morning Monkeys!

Are you all gearing up for Thanksgiving next week.

I've begun my Christmas shopping.      

Hi Can,

I am taking Thanksgiving off this year. It's the first time since I took over when I was 21 when my mom became to ill to do it any more. When we moved to Texas Babs and I would take turns doing Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.  Daughter is making dinner this year. So will go there for dinner.

Hope you enjoyed being served GE.

I've been doing Thanksgiving dinner for just a handful of family for the last few years and I am doing it again this year.  Just purchased my turkey today.    

Most of my Christmas shopping is done! 

Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving Klaas, and can rest today, and enjoy the leftovers.

Good for you that most of your shopping is done.  Will you have your granddaughter for Christmas?

I have been doing the Thanksgiving thing for the past 13 years, hosting my neighbor and our family of 3 here. My sister is in Florida, my brother died last November, and our parents are both gone as well. Husband's family is in Canada, so there are very few family members to host.

I have a very small family, as I only had one brother, one sister, one aunt, one uncle and one cousin growing up. My mother was an only child and my father had just one sister. His sister died 20 years ago, and her husband has remarried. I am not even sure if he is still my uncle.

So Thanksgiving here in the past 13 years has always been a small gathering, but I still have to cook everything as if there were lots of people attending. LOL

As for Christmas, I am unhappy to report that I have only bought a handful of gifts so far. Usually I am done by Thanksgiving, or almost done! My problem this year is I do not know what people want! I so hate waiting this long to get going on the shopping.

Kudos to all of you who have a jump-start on Christmas!

(I did win a local auction this week with some cool vintage Christmas ornaments though!) But our artificial tree needs to be replaced this year, and we cannot decide whether to get a pre-lit one or a non-pre-lit one, or a live one this year, so we have not even bought our tree yet. LOL

     



Brandi how cool to win vintage Christmas ornaments. Congratulations. Before my mom passed away I cooked for the whole family. Then after just my my family. And who ever the kids invited. Since moving to Texas like I said Babs and I would take turns between the holidays. Then daughter moved here. And I went back to cooking. This year daughter has a new friend and wants to do the cooking. Pretty much because he doesn't like coming here. But that's another story. 

Enjoy you Thanksgiving with your family. I use to be done with my Christmas shopping by Thanksgiving way back. But since I only buy for the grand kids & daughter here it's easy. I just send the grand kids & kids in Calif money. Since I have no idea what they like or are into it just easier.

How did the dinner go GE?  Sorry the friend does not like going to your place.  Seems like your place has been the mecca for years, and your cooking always sounds so wonderful.

Hi Monkeys!

Good news to report!  My brother had his lung surgery and is back at home.  He feels great.
He was fortunate to be able to have microscopic surgery and feels so lucky to be alive.   
Awaiting biopsy results on lymph nodes to determine treatment plan.

You are always in my prayers, my friend.  Hope he feels better soon.

I want to tell everyone that having the woman I have hired to be with my Dad for a short time each week and do his wash has really made a difference.  He is talking more and interacting more.  He was on TV with my brother on Veteran's Day.  I convinced my brother to come in and take him to the ceremony.  He then played blackjack with him, as he said, as you suggested and my Dad beat him, fair and square 10 our of 15 games.  He said he could not believe how my Dad was answering questions and talking to people during the ceremony and coffee afterwards.  He was believing my Mom that my Dad could not do anything.  Now he knows differently.  I am so happy they had that time together!  It would never have happened if I did not go away.   I feel blessed!

 an angelic monkey



Thanks hon.

What a blessing indeed Bearly.  Your Daddy had the time of his life, I'll bet.  Hopefully your brother will be inspired to take him out of the facility for other social events.

Great idea to have someone tending to his laundry and providing conversation/stimulation. 
Bearly, you are indeed a Godsend.

Oh Monkeys I am so frustrated.  About a month ago some punks took the back wheels off the car next door. Called the local LE got since I didn't have a name etc of the owner they couldn't take a report. But she would send out someone to check it out. Which they never showed up. Last night they came back and took the front wheels.

The problem being the house has been empty since we moved in almost 7 years ago. The couple that lived there he was put in jail for beating her up. She moved out with the two little girls with her parents. The car has sat there all this and there is still power and water on. Someone comes a couple times a year. I figure to turn the AC on and then to turn the heat on for winter.  With the car sitting in the drive way on blocks only shows it's empty. I feel bad as there is nothing I can do. I heard the truck last night but was feeling to bad to get up and look. I wish now I would have.

I'd call the non-emergency number for your local LE and report it. At least there will be a record of it having been reported. Not a whole lot you can do with little information. Hopefully, because these crimes are being committed, the LE will be on the lookout both for similar crimes and maybe check out the area with patrols.

No need to worry about having not called in the middle of the night. I seriously doubt if LE could have or would have gotten there fast enough to catch the thugs.

Don't beat yourself up over this, for goodness sakes!

     
Wow GE, hate to hear that happening as once it starts they will continue to strip whatever they can.....You'll have to keep an ear out for your vehicles also.....guess you can take one thing from it, the way this Texas Weather eats the rubber, tires won't be of much good after sitting for over 7 years!

Good point, Babs!

Those tires are probably dry-rotted after 7 years sitting on the ground, not being used.

Hi Babs! Good to see ya!
     
My little car is in dire need of new tires, I can't drive 2 vehicles and prefer my big truck to run around these country roads ( too many rock-haulers) running little ones off the road or just rolling right over them.

Hi Brandi, good to see you too, its been so quiet in here of late, sure do miss all the banter that used to pop up here on JSM's thread............Where has everyone gone, or do I just need to get a life? 

 Looks like its about time to change my kitties over to fall/winter, they aren't too happy we have already had a couple of frosty nites , had to get out the heating pads for a couple of the old grumps so time to put the pool away for awhile!

I am sorry, a god friend generously and unbelievably let us use their time share for a week.  Had to haul everyone around for a while to get everyone happy again here.

 



How wonderful.  Good friends beget good friends.  Much needed break for you and the cub.
So happy for you, that you got that time away, friend.    an angelic monkey

GE - Sorry to hear you had a bad bout with the flu but glad you are on the mend.

Sister - Thinking of you, and as you would say, in God's time. xoxo
 an angelic monkey

Bearly - Is Mom settled in somewhere yet?   

Blessings to all.

She is still in Medical where, I think, she belongs.  She is first on the list for personal care.  My son got hurt badly carrying her things out of the old apartment and so did I.  Now, personal care is only one room.  She has my house, my attic, my brother's garage, my friend's house, and a storage unit all with her things in them.  She had 9 closets and 2 dressers full of clothes.  She has a bad problem.  The mailman came in to tell my Dad she had a problem and to speak with her, years ago, she has not changed.  She wants to get someone to move the things from her storage unit to personal care, so my brother is not involved, and have my son and I move all of the things from my house and my friend's house and brother's garage there.

   

We will get hurt, the doctor has already said a big NO for me.  My son ended up in the ER and we missed my niece's wedding moving her things because he spent the whole day and night in the ER.  I am not sure why she does not consider what happens to me and now, my son, when she wants things done.  She is thinking of my brother only, and is having movers come to move the storage unit.  I think it is because he is much more strict (for lack of a better word, but that is not what I mean) with her.  He tells her to focus, over and over when she goes off task.  I am definitely more gentle with her.  It was hard for me to get one of my brothers to take her to the dentist while I was gone.  I had them rush an appointment, which made me late packing and had our vacation get off to a very late start.  Good news, I won an 8 day vacation while we were there!

 

My luck is changing thanks to my friends and their kind offer.  Who does that?

 an angelic monkey



You won an eight day vacation when you were there?!  That's some kind of wonderful, I'd say!
Congratulations!

I'm sorry your son got hurt and you missed your niece's wedding.  Is he alright now?

Sorry your Mom is not more considerate of you and Cubbie with regard to moving her things.
btw, how can they be moved back to fit into one room anyway?  Clearly she differentiates and understands what her son is willing to do and what she can pull from her daughter.  Are you a girl that can't say no, Bearly? 

My husband often speaks with me regarding the level of input, time and concern I give to my Mom.  He worries that I'm burning out.  I know my involvement with my Mom is nowhere near the level yours is.  It is also my doing, my Mom does not make any demands.  But the reality is I am the only family member in close proximity to her and even that is a 35 minute highway drive away. 
So, moral of the story, maybe bearly needs a husband to love her, guide her, and keep her on track.

To all our Monkeys Prayers for all in the path of these nasty storms. Hope you all made it thru without any damage.

The line of storms went from Louisiana to upper state New York. Hope Caddy & 4 Donks are okay. Cookie, TBM & Tevye are you all okay.  I know Illinois got hit along with Kentucky. When I looked on the weather map Michigan looked like it was all covered with yellow & organe. Brandi how did you do? Prayers for all

Hi GE

Like 4 Donks said, no problems here.  Heard the wind whistling through the cracks in the door- tee hee - and some rain but no problems.  Sunny day today.

Hope everyone is safe.  I have seen first hand what a storm can do to a community and it is unbelievable. 

Morning prayers to all my monkey friends.

Thanks for the prayers, Cadi, they are always appreciated.  Thanks for the update, too.

Good morning,
 
Well, I'm taking Connie and we are going to a very nice hotel, have their "Thanksgiving Feast" and come home the following day.  Her boys hadn't planned anything with her, so off we go on Wednesday.
I can't believe I am saying this, but I am done Christmas shopping.  When I was house bound with the chicken pox, my mighty fingers and I were busy online.  I hate shopping but don't mind it when I can sit on my arse and look at pictures, drink my coffee, smoke my cigs, etc.
Still healing from the Dennis situation.  We still talk, we're still friends, but it still hurts.
Blessings everyone.
 
Sister, hope you and Connie enjoyed your Thanksgiving feast and your time together.

Sounds like your style of shopping is pretty comfortable.  Good for you!

I'm sorry you hurt.

  to you Green Eyes.

Thank You Can Dinner went well. Was nice not having to do all the cooking. But I missed it also. Weird or what. The friend doesn't like cats and that's what we have.   They will be here for Christmas. He can't get out of it as youngest son will be here spending a week with us. Daughter and son are very very close.
