LOUSY..

Standard
sickwoman
I feel pretty lousy today.. I was all day long yesterday.
It might be the weather changing or the pollen or
something in the air. I have had trouble sleeping due to
my allergies and asthma.. I sure hope it leaves soon.
It’s the kind of weather that makes your bones ache.. oh yeah
I am that old!! Wink
I have to be well to get my FLU SHOT.. They are already
advertising for them in the stores here. $24.99!! Goodness..
the price goes up every year. I can remember getting one
for $5 one year. They raise the price so that if you do not
have insurance and have to pay– it comes at a bad time.
Winter time, the bills are more than summer. This year they
say will be bad. Higher oil rates and more sickness.
They want more children this year than ever, to get the
shots. They figure if they get some resistance to the bug
then they won’t pass it along. Makes sense..Schools
are where they are passing it to each other.  I think the GOVT.
should pay for them. Children are our future. They should
be protecting the whole nation from a potential virus outbreak.
Oh well I am just rambling here.. something else the poor people
can’t afford. At least the seniors get a shot free.. ( if they can take it)

RELAX
With all the bad news on tv lately I prefer to not watch it.
I see it– but I tune most of  it out.. I guess that is what you call it.
Oh sometimes you can’t help but know what’s going on
and you do listen. Mom doesn’t get all of the news of
congress doing this or that.
She prefers to watch her daytime shows
and live in her mind where no one goes to the bathroom
(almost never see a person on a soap go in one.) and
no one smokes anymore, or goes to a grocery store.
They never sit down for a whole meal or have trouble getting
a babysitter for their kids.
People there just happen to give you
a job and or you have someone in your family owning a
business where you can get work. Just like that– there is no
stress over paying the bills or anything. What a life that would
be.
 When they broke into her program yesterday with an update
over the bill not being signed, she just looked at me with
disgust.. for a split second her world was brought back to reality.
I had to think, if we lost tv for good tomorrow, if all those characters
would still be playing their parts in her mind.

NEWS AND VIEWS

Standard

 The news was grim and tragic over the weekend. A person we
knew is gone and we are all asking why? Lost a job, could not
get another, could not provide for his family. Bad times for
everyone these days. Who knows what thoughts lie inside
someone’s mind.. private thoughts that get overwhelming,
and then something snaps. A family now tries to move through
the loss and shock and grief. The community needs to gather
itself and try to make sense of the whole thing and help
all they can. The past few days have been hard on us all.
We shake our heads and think–what could we have done, or
what didn’t we see? Sometimes these things just happen. now we
have to deal with it and try to move on into the days ahead
and help all we can. He will be missed.

 

 Here are some pictures I took over the weekend.

We are still pretty green here..that is all to change by next week I am afraid. Colder,
weather will set in soon. Rain is coming too.
 
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!

SLOW SUNDAY

I saw this graphic and just was taken away to a peaceful place
this morning. It is very cool here today and this computer is
pretty slow too. I am running a scan so maybe that will help.
Nothing much going on here in our neck of the woods. Gas did come
down drastically to 3.56 is the last day or so. That was a big shock!
Milk was up to 3.79!! NOT buying it!  Will look for the sales.
People here are in a rush to start their yard cleanups even though
the leaves have not even started to turn yet. Gads… if it goes like
last year, we will be shoveling leaves along with the snow. Confused
The roadside market is out of tomatoes. the season was terrible.
They are only selling squash now and some peppers and cabbages.
Don’t remember a summer where we got  so few tomatoes here.
My vine is full and still blooming.. now if only the frost will hold
off for a few.
I am so cold this morning I think I will go get myself a cup of
hot chocolate to help me warm up.
 
#############################################################
When was the last time you ever heard of a hurricane hitting the
east coast of the US near MAINE??? Well it is going to happen soon.
Here is the latest so far on it.  KYLE will share it’s fury with
Canada this time too. I am just amazed! What a year we are having.

PAUL NEWMAN DIES

Standard
newman
 
How in the world can you pick just one of his movies?
There were 73 in all.. Chances are just most everyone on
the planet has seen one. Here is the whole list!
How can you say that one was my most favorite portrayal?
How can you not remember him with Robert Redford
in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? OH.. Cool
Hand Luke..The Hustler, I loved him in the movie..
Message in a Bottle with Kevin Costner back in 1998.
I have to smile thinking of him as playing the role of
Kevin’s dad.  That smile..
those crystal blue eyes.. this world has lost a legend
that is for sure. His whole life is laid before us in his
charitable actions as well as his faith and love of his
family and his profession. My sympathies to his family
especially to Joanne, his wife of 50 years.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES PAUL!!!
