    124 Backyard sunrise this morning. Last night I saw the Dragon SpaceX rocket launch. It looked like a comet. I'm 165 miles from the launch site.

    My reading this morning was 139. @adiantum My father was stationed at a coastal defense fort protecting the submarine base in Groton during WWII. Fort H. G. Wright was on Fisher Island. My father is on the right, he was a 2nd Lt. then. This was from a newspaper article about the National Guard 242nd Coast Artillery Regiment training cica 1940, pre-WWII

    This is the view of the pavilion from the beach. ..sorry it wont paste. The building on the right is for the surf lifesavers 177412.webp The structure up high in the background is a museum now but was a military defence structure. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Scratchley

    7.1 What a clever idea ran My stars didnt line up yesterday. Took my boy to the groomers but he wasnt overly happy to see me when I returned for him. Then he tried to herd me into the bedroom twice without success so he went to bed himself. He's not done that before. He slept 6 hours, came out for dinner & returned to bed. 19 hours of sleep & I can hear him snoring. I text the groomer asking if she'd given him a sedative but thankfully no. I'll take him to his park later & to his fav treat shop for a roo tail. Saw this pic in todays news & hey those women are sitting on one of my favourite corners of the world. For many years I'd visit there at any time of the day from dawn to dusk just looking at the Pacific Ocean as they are.I'd also sit under that pergola with a coffee or hamburger from the kiosk within that beautiful old building which also houses change cubicles. Waves are cool to watch as are dolphins, whales or even surfers.

    I haven't had a low in years FunDad. I don't carry anything for it. I also had a 98 this morning along with a hurricane. All's well here.

    98 Yesterday afternoon I tested at 125 before going for my walk, so I ate a little snack. 30 minutes in to my walk I could tell it was low. I was mad. I carry 3 glucose tablets in my pocket when I walk so I ate those. They don't help a lot in my experience. The closer I got to home the slower I walked and was light headed. I texted my daughter and she met me outside with an open Coca-Cola. Looking back on it my "snack" was pretty low carb. What do you all keep on you for low's? I need something that will work faster than glucose tablets. Although they do taste good. Like Sweetarts. Lol.

    129 with strip test, my sensor fell off my right arm. I sleep on that side and must've rubbed it wrong way, some time in the afternoon it stopped working and I took it off (tiny needle was bent sideways).Need to refill sensor prescription before I can get another one.

    127 today. Fundad, I heard sugar cubes work well; I would bring a small pack of orange juice with me on a dog walk for the lows only I do not have any lows - never affected that way at 89 (lowest I got so far). Libre detected something one night at 61 but after trip to the bathroom it was 119 already. I think it was a fluke on the sensor.

    7.3 Yesterday was so cold at 18C / 64F but felt colder, maybe the heavy rain 88mm / 3" Even though I moved like the GingerBread Man because of all the clothes I wore, I had to put the heater on so my dog left the room. He gets his winter coat off this morning. Christmas shopped online yesterday assuming things will be scarce because of covid & the postal service is exhausted even now , so could be wose by xmas.

    7 on this cold & wet Tuesday at 53F I'd have the heater on but it would over heat my dog in his thick winter fur coat . He goes to the groomers tomorrow. I wasnt sure it would fit in with our lockdown conditions but its a health issue & within our allowed 5km/3m boundary. Irina, I love the Bobo Hydrangeas but lost mine to the drought 3yrs ago. The most popular here is Hydrangea macrohylla which I have growing in a few places. Its originally from my grandmothers garden. I've always loved gardens & Hydrangeas were a fav. Best childood memory is having to go to the cemetery when about 4yrs old . I had to sit in the boat while mother packed it with bottles of water & so many flowers that I couldnt move. It was mostly blue Hydrangeas & white Shasta daisies. It was an isolated journey along the heavily tree lined riverbank only passing about 4 houses while mother rowed about 3miles. She had a thing about making all the graves looking nice before someones funeral was due to take place. I just had a thing about going up the river surrounded with flowers.
