December 04, 2023 - Msg 119493: Good afternoon porch family,
I am sorry I have been missing in action for awhile now but I
have had a lot going on.
I thought I would update on some things and will update later on the other stuff..

Mr. Maude had his right knee replacement surgery on November 20th. All went well and he seems to be coming along with his rehab and physical therapy. Hopefully within the next couple weeks he will be off he walker, move to a cane and then soon after he will not need the cane.

The biggest and most exciting news is that our grandson was born on November 29th at 8:30 pm! Patrick Bryan Cox III “Tripp” for triple Cox was
born via c section weighing in at 8 lbs 12 oz and was 20.5 inches long. Both baby and Momma are doing well . As you know, this is our first grandbaby😁 and I am so excited to be a Nanna.

Work has been busy . I have only been working Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with everything that’s been happening. It’s sounds good to cut back to 3 days for a while but I have tried to put 4 days of people into those 3 days…. Crazy me. What was I thinking.

I will go back and read the archives and catch up. Hopefully I can drop by and rock more in the coming weeks.

Everyone have a blessed evening. Prayers and blessings to all
Big Maude

December 04, 2023 - Msg 119494: Yay, Big Maude is back! We've been waiting on the baby news! Congratulations,Nanna! You will love being a grandparent-so glad all went well. Welcome to the world,Tripp!
Glad that Mr. Maude's knee replacement went well and that he is doing good in his recovery.
Love and peace to all..

For BOO (and anyone else) "George Bailey lassos stork!" :)

Hey to Big Maude!! Good to see you again. So happy for you
and the new grandkid! So very cool. Also glad to hear
that Mr. Maude is doing all his rehab. Make sure that
he keeps it up!
Cecile's biopsy of bone marrow went well today. They are
still trying to figure this thing out, but its one stp at
a time.
This is a sort of weird year also as I think of all that
Ro and Asa would be sharing; but it is still a time to
revel and rejoice! :)
And our weather has been fabulous! I got all my outdoor
scenery completed and lit last night.
Hey to possum.

Oh, and good sweep GF! :)

December 05, 2023 - Msg 119497: Hey Porchsters. I never noticed it before, but every oak tree in my neighborhood was VERY late to drop leaves this year. I hope we have a nice day tomorrow so I can rake/mow over a whole lot in my yard. I wonder what causes that........

All is quiet on my side of the porch this evening. Still having silence from the son. Time, I will give it time, as that is all I have to give right now. I have decided to cut back on the decorating and focus on baking and giving to elderly in the community. Like you Boo, working in the medical field as a traveling hospice / home care nurse, I saw a lot of older people who had been forgotten or tossed aside. Well, going to get some sleep before starting another cold day!!

Hello all!
NN, good to see ya. And same here, other than my outdoor display,
we are cutting back a bit on other decs this year. Prayers for all
the elderly in care homes for sure.

Possum, you DO get around don't you!? On the Kelly and Mark show today,
they showed a video of a possum that got into a Christmas tree!
And the lady doing the filming had no idea how it even got into the house! ha

Oh, here's another for BOO, I know its a fav of yours:
I hope all is going well in your home this year.

Billy Ray, our ash tree leaves are STILL on our tree this year.
It may be because of our very hot summer. Hmm, very interesting.

I hope everyone is well. Please post when you get a chance.

Keep looking up,
MDC :)

December 08, 2023 - Msg 119501: Ha! I'll just bet that possum was already in the tree when they brought it into the house,MDC. I would've freaked out to find it in my tree,even if it was (as Opie would say) one of my own kind!

Here it is almost Christmas and my petunias, geraniums,and marigolds are in full bloom! Strangest thing for this time of year-usually everything dies out towards the end of our hot summers but not this year. Curious,curious!

Good to see New Neighbor on the Porch. I'm sorry about your son,but think the same as you-give it time. Things have a way of working out. Sending prayers and love.

Y'all take care!

This version of The Taylor's Front Porch has been created to pay our respect to the original porch found on Thanks to Frank for all the work he did for Mayberry on the web. We've tried to make this just like Frank's Porch. This is also a tribute to Ollie's "Trivialities" site which was another homage to Frank's porch but is no longer with us.
