Thanks Vicki and Betty. Vicki, yes, they do have the scooters at ours, we both thought it would be better if she would use her new walker to try and get some strength back in her legs. She wanted to go for a little walk (with the walker) down the sidewalk this morning but amazingly here at the house it's pouring down rain. It should be up near a 100 this late in June. She goes for a follow-up Wednesday and I'm going to take copious notes on what is discussed.

Hi Chris, hope the day is finding you and Judy doing well.  As Valium was mentioned, I thought of my way of "quieting down" - whether it be to just help my "nerves" or to help me sleep - a single aspirin.  Now, of course, if that is not medically appropriate or if a person already takes aspirin on  a "regular" basis it probably would not work.  Doctors have also told me for decades that aspirin will not do such - maybe it is the placebo effect, I don't know, I just know that it usually works for me. :-)

Awhile back somebody posted a clear glass plate that had bubbles - I found this in a Kovel book today.....is it your glass?  Doyle glass #500 made 1890   Sorry for the poor quality of the pic.Doyle glass #500

Oh! Kathy C - My apologies, I must have missed your post. I do believe your shakers are modern Ruby Czech glass. It's very difficult to id any one company in most all cases. However, if you really do wish to try, go to the above section of "links" we have a number of "Czech/Bohemia" glass makers, and websites for you to explore.

In other words, the work of finding the info has already been done for you, so just click on those, and see what you can find, ok? :)

Comment by Shirley Grundman on June 22, 2014 at 10:35pm

OK, will Do Vicki.  Thank you.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on June 22, 2014 at 10:11pm

Shirley - Because your yard sale will be so fab, I would suggest you place a FREE ad on estatesales.org. This is a fairly new site, and it offers Garage and Yard sale emails in addition to the traditional "Estate sale" emails. More folks finding you, is never a "bad thing"! :) Good Luck and Do let us know how you do!

Comment by Shirley Grundman on June 22, 2014 at 10:06pm

Hey Vicki, My big yard sale isn't till June 27 & 28.  I had to start getting stuff ready, because I have so much.  Sure glad I did.  I'll be posting more pictures of it tomorrow night on FB I'll post here too, since I have 2 friends going to help me move all the glass and stuff to the front yard.  My patio is covered!  Thanks for asking.  I'll let you know.

Hi Glass Hounds! I've FINALLY got our 2013 taxes done! LOL It only took me forever to get around to, but one less thing to worry about!

Chris - So glad to hear of Judy's outing - But I'd agree with Betty - on the motor scooter idea. Does your walmart have those? She could then scoot about, without exhausting herself! Right after I had minor back surgery, My Son and DIL were getting married, and we went to a BIG store to find stuff. I was "forbidden" to do a lot of walking but got in one of those scooter things and had a ball! LOL Had Granddaughter one on my lap at the time!

I must agree with all here on the insomnia case to! I've had it most of my life! It's a frustrating thing, that has no good answers it seems. But, I'd side with Colin on the Valium idea - because it does not have those "horrific" side effects that Ambian and other newer meds do.  They tried to put me on that stuff years ago, and I found it started to work, when one got up! UGGG! Maybe a better idea would be to schedule her last dose of Xanax at bedtime instead? ( Kill 2 birds with one stone)??

In any case I've read that people with the highest IQ's are also the one's most likely to be insomniac's - if that's any consolation? HEE HEE!

Colin, those bowls are Fantastic! Wonderful find! and yes, some of the Fenton Silvercrest glass does indeed resemble the Victorian Era Epergne's! I too, would love to see Angela's glass "pot" it sounds wonderful! But then again, all her finds are! :)

Shirley - How'd your yard sale go? Did the geese chase customer's away if they were mean? LOL Hope it was a great success for ya!

Donna - Downsizing for a Glass Hound? Hmmm, not so sure about that - LOL But, "upscale" buying is also a good strategy! :)

I'll check in again with you'all soon! Happy Hunting!

Comment by Chris Pollock on June 21, 2014 at 6:02pm

Thank you Shirley, Colin, Betty and Angela. She is starting to realize her limitations. I know she wants to get out there and just go, go, go, but I'm trying to get it through her head that she can't do that yet. I also know that she is just itching to get up and clean house but I'm doing what I can. I'm certainly not used to this.  She's busy now going through a diabetic cookbook that our DIL bought for her to find meals for next week. Colin, we're definitely going to talk to her doctor Wednesday about her sleep problem. I can't have her getting two or so hours of sleep a night and taking naps off and on all day long though she has to take the Xanax per her doctor to stay calm which in turn keeps her heart rate from going up to 240 or so again. I don't imagine she'll last too long in the store tomorrow either or I may just insist she stay home and go myself. If I have any questions that's what cell phones are for. Someday I'll get her on here personally to thank all you fine ladies and gentleman for your thoughts and prayers.

Comment by Angela Evans on June 21, 2014 at 5:07pm

I agree Colin, 20 mins is a good start just lying in hospital makes you weak as a kitten. Baby steps to recovery are always the best......Colin I have bowls just like yours mine fit together to form a large lidded powder bowl...I thought they were by Reich?


  I love your opalescent ones a bargain
