Hi to all.  The weather here in Yuma has steadily been getting warmer and more and more of the snowbirds are fleeing.  AFAIC it's just getting to a nice comfortable temperature range.  Days have been sunny and temperatures in the mid to high 70's with night time minimums in the mid 50's.  We plan to stay here until mid May by which time we should have temperatures consistently over 100 each day. :)

Didn't realize it got that hot so early Don. Of course, I know it gets much hotter in the middle of summer  ;D  When do you and Betty plan to head north?

We'll be leaving here sometime around the middle of May - the date isn't firm yet.  Today, after bragging about our weather here, the skies are mostly cloudy and the forecast is for thunder storms tomorrow  :'(

Question:  How do I quote back only a part of a message?  In this case I highlighted only your question about when we plan to head north but it appears that the whole message is being quoted.

Just click Quote and the entire message is quoted, then highlight/delete the parts you don't want before clicking Post. Just be sure to leave the {quote} {/quote} tags (with square brackets instead of the curly ones) intact.

Don,

It must be close to summer. Last night we had a great lightining display and tonight we had some dark clouds as we enjoyed your hospitality. :)

Hi Don,

Here's the method I use after playing with this software for a day or two:
    a. Highlight the text I want to quote.
    b. Hit Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard.
    c. In the message I am drafting put the cursor at the point I want the quote inserted.
    d. Click once on the "Insert Quote" tool (bottom row on the tool bar, second tool from the right).
    e. Without moving the cursor, hit Ctrl+V to paste the quoted text between the codes for a quote.

So far that procedure has worked well for me.

Don,

In the message I just posted to you I tried Tom's method to insert a quote and as you can see it worked well.  His method is much easier if one wants to quote most or all of a message.  I like my method better when quoting small parts of a long message,  or when using multiple quotes from one or more messages.

Dollyllama/George,

Yes, I figured that was you.  Glad to see you here.  Not to rub it in  ::) but temperatures here are now getting up into the low 90's each day.  When will we see you two out this way?

It hasn't reached central Florida yet,  Rained today and temps are still hovering around 70, although it was much cooler last week and windy.  Of course, being central Florida that can all change in a minute, and the forecast is for more rain today, then temps will shoot up into the mid 80s.

We're here until mid April.

It looks like we are in good company here in Chicago. We should be getting temps near 50, but are lucky if we break 40. It has been cold and cloudy for the most part, and rain or snow is predicted over the next couple of days. Summer? I vaguely remember it...

Hi Don,

We used to live in the Chicago area, Park Forest to be exact.  Your description of your weather is exactly why we left.... :p

I am chompin' at the bit to leave, too -- but am probably "stuck" here for a couple more years? :mad: . After that I will sell the house, hitch up the travel-trailer, and head on out to friendlier climates. In the mean time I'll just have to use what breaks I have to get out as often (and as far) as I can. My favorite area is the four-corner states, but I have spent very little time in California, or up in the northwest corner of the country, so that will be a good area to explore, too.

It's good to know that somebody is taking advantage of that type of weather. And actually I enjoy reading the posts of people who describe the "far flung" places that they are traveling -- it's not like actually being there, but it helps to keep the dream alive...

A lot of ex-Chicagoans are Framily members. We moved east in 1973 but took until 1998 to arrive in nice, warm Arizona.
