I don't think Wife 4 received all of Carson's fortune.  They were separated when he died.

FSU gals like to travel
« Reply #951 on: May 05, 2020, 03:11:42 PM »
Wife reminded me that she has not been away from our property for over 6 weeks now.

I have gone to the grocery store 3 times during this period.
I am at high risk of dying from Corona if contracted, but I knew that I would get it from her anyway, if she had caught it, so I might just as well be the one to go out amongst the troops.
Wore cap, face mask, wrap around safety glasses and medical type gloves and used disinfectant on gloves when I returned to car; and put all clothes in washer as soon as back home.  Never passed anyone face to face in store.

Plus she was super over burdened with her PhD courses and extensive typing to send materials to her own Differential Equations students prior to Zoom sessions.

Anyway, she said that when she finishes grading finals, she at least wants to go for a long drive.  I told her we could drive to small town 12 miles away to satisfy her travel urges.

Just get her a VR and Smithsonian's 'Aerial America' videos. The next best thing to 'being there'.

You need protection. Photo of a full body condom in the article below

Or you can go with a unitard. If you buy either of these, post some photos.

Wife's Jury Duty - - - more
« Reply #955 on: May 11, 2020, 03:26:26 PM »
As a follow-up. 

Judge instructed Ochka (and all others on the list) to call a specified number after 5 PM on each day (Sunday through Thursday, starting May 10th) to see if they needed to report at 8:30 AM the next day.
So she called Sunday around 6 and got message that due to Corona, her entire group was dismissed from jury duty for the stated term of 40 days. (I mistakenly wrote 50 days before.)

She was happy to get the news; but I was thinking . . . what will this do to 6th Amendment right to speedy trial?


Wife got notice to report for jury duty 5 or so years ago.
She was not a US Citizen at that time, and when we notified them, they removed her name.
But, last week she got second notice.
She replied that although she had everyday English and excellent knowledge of math words, symbols, etc. . . .
she might have trouble with understanding words used in the trials and back and forth arguments from lawyers.
And that she needed to go to Ukraine to tend to her aged parents.
Head judge ignored all that and told her to report.
Then, continuing this silliness, told her if she didn't understand the proceedings, she was to immediately inform the presiding judge.
Which she is going to have to do for sure . . . so just a big waste of time for everyone.
And for sure the lawyers for one side, or both, are going to request her dismissal.
50 days of service starting next week.

Even more strange, she called twice in 5 years or so . . . I have never been called.

Our 16th anniversary
« Reply #956 on: May 23, 2020, 08:20:28 AM »
Ochka and I have been married for over 5 years now.
We have been living together in USA for 9 years this coming July.
We became romantically involved 10 years ago.

But we actually first met 16 years ago in early May.  We remember the specifics, because it was during the time of Victory/May Day celebrations in Ukraine, and the year (2004) coincided with the birth of a relative of mine.

Our meeting was in a business setting, and we were both married to others at the time, but . . .

We have decided to celebrate that we have been involved for 16 years.

I am claiming this so that I can be one of the 'oldest' of the 'old timers' here.

One thing I have a hard time remembering is birthdays and when I met someone. It's usually the women who have to remind me when we first wrote each other, when we first met, when the first of anything happened. They like to celebrate many anniversaries. Maybe they want a gift for each anniversary?

Negative for Covid 19
« Reply #958 on: May 26, 2020, 07:45:37 AM »
Went yesterday morning for Covid test.
Results back and posted in my online medical chart already.
Negative for Covid 19.
Of course the disclaimer that . . . "tests not 100% guaranteed.  Must also consider your symptoms (I have none) and who you have had contact with (I try to protect well when shopping, etc.)"
I will get call this afternoon as to when to report to hospital tomorrow to have a look-see down my stomach and up the liver tube which was blocked after gall bladder surgery.  If all looks well, doc will remove the stent that was placed at bottom of the liver tube.
Wife cannot even come into hospital, but it is too hot to wait in car, so we are just now thinking about what she will do.  University buildings not open, so that is not an option.  She doesn't want to go visit with some friends who live fairly close to hospital because of the risk.

Expensive 'Victory Gardens' this year
« Reply #959 on: May 26, 2020, 07:50:56 AM »
Garden planting more expensive this year because many, many more people into it.
We usually get tomato plants, egg plants, etc., for $3.50 - $4.50 for packs of 4-6.
Apparently those snapped up early, and now all that is available are single larger plants for $3-4 each.
Wife couldn't even find seeds for something she wanted (can't remember what).
Can't even find straw in town now.
Lowes won't help load heavy items into SUVs or hatchbacks because of 'social distancing.'  But they will load into pickup trucks if we stay in truck.

Mother tests positive for Covid 19
« Reply #960 on: May 26, 2020, 07:25:45 PM »
Well I just tested negative for Covid, but my 98 year old Mother was tested for second time in 2 weeks and was positive.  Negative 2 weeks ago.

She is in full care very nice nursing home and says she feels fine.
Something doesn't add up, but . . .

My sympathy. 

Given your health and hers, you probably can not visit her.  More sympathy. 

98 years.  That's something!  My parents both died at 80.  I would have loved another 18 years.  MY mom would be here today if so.

As update, amazingly she seems to have survived.  All extra care has been suspended and she only has cough and some shortness of breath remaining.  Has gone from full time oxygen to only a couple of times a day.

She is a very tough gal.

But then she went to bathroom by herself for first time . . . and fell down hitting her head when going back toward her bed.  Was taken to hospital next day with very large bump on head.

I thought . . . oh no, she survived Covid, and now this will be her end.

But no . . . she was only in a couple of days, and declared to be OK.
She was even back to her feisty self as nurses told . . . e.g.  I can certainly dress myself and walk!!  Why isn't my son Ted here ?  (her favorite son . . . not me).

I have been surprised at the level of interest shown in my parcels of real estate for sale.

Nothing like the levels of earlier years, but still some viewings and perhaps some deals will occur in next week or so.

Some sales by others of existing homes also occurring nearby at not much of a discount from asking.

May be getting full time wife
« Reply #967 on: July 07, 2020, 07:12:05 PM »
Wife is close to deciding to not continue in PhD program and to not try to teach or have any job.
Several things:
She is noticing how much better she feels now that the semester is over.
During semesters she often told of twitches or electrical shocks in her spine and neck, fluctuating blood pressure, higher than normal pulse rate, stomach problems, skin rashes around neck area, and on and on.
A couple of weeks ago she said . . . If we sell a parcel of land this summer during this Covid crisis, I will take it as a sign from God that it is OK for me to discontinue PhD program and stop working outside our house and property.
So last week, I did sell not only one parcel, but two parcels . . . to same person . . . a young MD whose wife told me they were looking for a place to build their forever home.  Probably 6,000 sq feet, 4 car garage, in-ground swimming pool, cabana and pool house, tennis court, garden and greenhouse.  He wrote us out check for over $300,000 and said he was only $40,000 short of having the remaining money . . . and that he would get it in bonus money the end of August.
This morning I wrote out message for wife to send to department chair and chair of PhD program.
She is still sitting on it.

Not sure how much he makes per year, but thought it was pretty thrifty of them to accumulate close to $400,000 in just three years out of residency.

She'll get bored with the forever home after 10 years.
