Was hoping this spelled out something in sephamore but all I get is:

U R Y C

looked promising to start but can't see a text acronym I recognise there.

I almost never find shoes on sale in my size. Finding two pair in one day has made me extremely happy!

I am also extremely happy that my husband is recovering well from the flu and pneumonia he had in November. He still tires easily, but that is to be expected. His doctors are quite pleased with his recovery.

Double hooray.   :cheerleader:  Maybe this is a portent for your new year?

Some minor good news on my side -- my monthly pension check came in today instead of tomorrow.  Can't decide which restaurant to celebrate in.  Maybe the deli in Rossmoor that makes such good sandwiches.
Hurray for money coming in early! :cheerleader:

Always hurray for that.

That Y is problematic, isn't it?  Otherwise I'd suggest "you are too cute".

You are your cousin.

Does it have to make sense? :chin:

Depends on where the start is and I missed a repeated character, also B can be 2, so could be:

U Y B U R    or U Y 2 U R

Y B U R U  or  Y 2 U R U

B U R U Y  or  2 U R U Y

U R U Y B  or  U R U Y 2

R U Y B U  or  R U Y 2 U

 :shrug:

No, hang on, that sequence might be wrong! Goes too fast, hard to keep up with which "character" you did last on the next time round!

Dave who the hell can remember the semaphore alphabet at this late stage in life?   I knew how to do that way back in the bronze age. No longer part of my recognition process.  I salute you for continuing to recognize those flag positions.

After pulling out my winter boots and finding they no longer fit, I was overcome with the dread of looking for new shoes. When your feet are long, wide, and arthritic, your choices are extremely limited, as are the places to find aforementioned limited choice of footwear.

One of my go-to places for shoes didn't have anything. December is not the time to buy winter shoes and boots. The second place I went, I had to try on eight pairs of shoes before I found something - and they were on sale. Double win!

However, they had another pair that almost fit. Once I got home, I found them online in the right size for nearly $50 off. I cashed in some rewards points to get a $25 egift card to the online store, so I wound paying just a couple of dollars over half price for them.

I almost never find shoes on sale in my size. Finding two pair in one day has made me extremely happy!

I am also extremely happy that my husband is recovering well from the flu and pneumonia he had in November. He still tires easily, but that is to be expected. His doctors are quite pleased with his recovery.

I so get that Velma. Two things I most dread having to buy; shoes and bras. When I find a bra that fits I buy 5 or 6 and then they all wear out at the same time. Huge congrats on the shoes and Happy New
Year.

I couldn't take the heat so I got out of the kitchen and turned the AC on.  :hammock:
