GROWING OLD WITH GUILT

A man has no trouble recalling his past,
When the end of his days is coming up fast.
With the devil's hot breath at his heels now at last,
A man spends much time, regretting his past.

Regretting the booze he drank every day,
Ashamed to face loved ones he's driven away,
 He recalls in an instant, that time worn cliché',
The piper has played and it's time now to pay.

It's terribly hard to summon up pride,
His veracity marred by the times he has lied,
Behind him the rivers of tears he has cried,
With his life like a lawn where the grass has all died.

His time here is ending, where will he go?
 The world's passed him by and he's out of the flow,
His prime is behind him, he's nothing to show,
The pendulum swings, slowly to, slowly fro.

Each beat of his heart, brings a thought from the past,
Each breath makes him wonder, will this be my last?
His sails hang in tatters from what's left of the mast,
The good years of life have passed by much too fast.

He oft turns to God, whom he hopes will appease,
The pain he is bearing, in times such as these,
He begs for forgiveness in all of his plea's,
Yes a man late in life, spends much time on his knees.

I thank you all for the nice birthday greetings‼️   I truly enjoyed a wonderful day, with so many birthday calls and so many friends and family reaching out to me.  I had a 2 hour PT and they even made me feel special there🥳🥳

Wonderful to read the feeding tube is gone JANE, and you were able to eat some real food and keep it down.  You are so ON YOUR WAY to healing completely 🥰🥰🥰

I also have some relief from my painful, "good shoulder"‼️ I saw my surgeon for my 12 week post op, and he was very pleased with my surgery shoulder....he said he knows that my recovery is going to take time to heal due to the trauma I went through and and the 8 months of the shoulder not moving.  Because of the reversed replacement it is going to need a lot of muscle building, but he liked what he saw in the arm.  We discussed my good shoulder and he fe3ls I will need another reverse shoulder replacement down the road as my rotator cuff is so messed up and the arthritis🤪🤪🤪. He gave me a cortisone shot and I can tell already it is showing good improvement I hope it continues‼️

Pleasant dreams to all.

Good morning..
Tis a winter wonderland out there this morning. Not enjoy for a dance with Mr Snowblower but a waltz with Mr Shovel.
We has a blast yesterday, starting with my friend getting out of the pacemaker clinic before her appointed time. Plus she thought  her pacemaker had to be replaced soon but the girl said not for 3 years!!

Then the fun began, we shopped till we dropped , hitting 8+ stores ! We did bring home two tired ol ladies that had a great day. I mentioned to Kyle that I could stay home the rest of the week and he burst my bubble by saying the dentist called and I will be heading back down that same road on Thur..

Jane, that is the best news you can give!! I just bet you could have danced out of the Dr office!!

Today is catch up day.....wonder what will win......work about house or naps? :))

Lloyd, I did send it to your email.....but here it is  again.

Jenny, all you want for Christmas is pain free shoulders!!

Patricia, we finally got the snow. I was kidding Bri that they could keep the 8 " of snow and we would do with just the 1" we had but that is now changed :(

Gloria, I listened to plows going in the night. Can you ask for a CNA or do you have to take what they send?

Phyllis, I did hear something about a shortage , I don't think it was a good year for the syrup last Spring..maybe this Spring it will be better. Our neighbour always gives us a bottle or two of fresh syrup.

Better get ready for the day..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm sitting here with my first cup of real coffee for the day!  I love it!

BUBBLE, thanks so much for the new Soda Shoppe!  I loved all the pictures and words!  You do such a terrific job and I don't think we tell you that often enough!

JENNY, prayers continue for your healing process!  It sounds like it's moving in the right direction.  Sometimes we think it's too slow but progress is progress and we must take it as it comes!  I speak from experience!

AMY, please keep that snow on your side of the border!  Having the kids take care of me is more than enough to ask.  I love having Christy here and Frankie is a frequent helper too but I also know they are going waaaaay out of the way to do it!  Of course, if we do get snow, my neighbor and I still own the snow blower together and he'll do the driveway!  Just makes it easier to make appointments if we don't have to worry about snow.

This was going to be a shortie but I guess I got carried away!  Must be the coffee!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning everyone and Happy December. Another cold morning here 33 and no sun shining yet.

JANE  for anyone that loves their morning coffee I bet you did enjoy those few tablespoons of it. I know about going out exhausting you. I almost stayed home on Thanksgiving because I knew I would do not hing for a few days after. About  all I did till Monday was lay on the couch and sleep on and off.

PHYLLIS  Yvette had been making shakes for me with icecream and Ensure, Not bad and at times I would put a little chocolate or coffee syrup into it and was better. I know, you are wondering  coffee syrup? That has been around RI-our state drink-and Mass for years. The only way my daughter would drink milk and when she got married and moved to Ca.I sent a case of it to her.

PATRICIA  there is one senior houseing here in town that look like a little village. 4 apartments to a bilding on 2 floors, no elevators either.  The laundry is in a seperate building and no matter the weather you have to go from a building to the laundry one. Another senior building looks like a prison to me. This building is small and a beautiful one outside and not bad inside. Like I said before only 53 apartments so not crowded.

JANE  HOORAY you can have coffee and good tasting food again. You had the best  nurses you could find through all of this, even traveled far to be with you.

SHIRLEY  glad y ou are finally getting back to painting. Regina jus t finished 2 painting for her sons for Christmas gifts. Mom does the painting and Dad makes the frames.

BUBBLE  thanks for the December book to fill up and the wonderful graphics by Phyllis and you. Love the quoteby O.W.H
I think all who gossip all the time should read the Jewish proverb. Now I know why I stopped going to sit on the porch with some of the others when I listened to the same thing several days and it  always changed depending on who was talking. Thanks for all today's goodies.

JENNY  I was  telling my son Saturday I was going to call my doctor for a referral  to a ort hopedic dr. to see about a shot in my left shoulder, really is get ting to me, even hard  to get  the arm to the keyboard.

AMY  since  this new one is in charge every t ime I asked some thing she gets huffy and  tells me  they are short handed and I get what they have. Sorry but one I do like is wanting more hours. BTW we seem  to have more rain in the forecast and not snow.

JANE  so good  to see your pos t this morning amd know you can enjoy your coffee and eating again.

Have a good day, be safe and stay safe.

Good morning, minus five in the Interior, where we are still waiting for any snow promised overnight. I knew it was warmer before I checked as the little creaks, snaps, and aches had gradually disappeared overnight.

Bubble, I love what you've done for the place! Especially "A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged, it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and the time in which it is used. -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., jurist (1841-1935)"

Shirley,  all that was wrong with me this past week other than some basic sniffles the week prior; were dings I had during my life acting up from time to time, nothing more.

Gloria, besides this senior independent living building, the Pioneers' complex offers both independent and medical assistance in their facilities. I know when mom was there in the nineties, it was $5000 monthly. She was there with late-stage Alzheimers.

You have to both belong to the Pioneers Organization and have been in the state for over thirty years to use their facility. Then there is Ravenhill, an over 65 independent living complex for those with money to spare. I'm sure there is more in both our communities.

Jane, you make our hearts sing but then did we really expect anything else from our Pennsylvanian Yankee?

Jenny, & Gloria, I hope you both receive some shoulder relief soon!

Amy, that walnut pie crust sounds good to me; I'm sure Lloyd and Shirley will love it, and with all those walnuts, put it to good use.

Well, December 1 is drawing to a close and this is the first day since I've been home that I didn't spend a big part of it in the recliner.  It was a good day!  The temp has dropped into the high 30s and we're supposed to have rain most of the night.  At least it's not going to snow us in!

It sounds like most of you who reported in are doing OK!  Keep it up!

I'm just about to hit the haystack and grab some zzzzs!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

I'm happy to follow Jane's good night blessing.......and join with God Bless and Sweet Dreams to all.  I am more than sleepy in spite of a couple quickie naps today. WE might break a record high weather tomorrow, hard to believe this is December. Must put up some outside lights. I have 4 special  birthdays this first week of Dec, all dead now so time to remember how much each meant. My mind is wandering.... :christmastree:  :snowman:  :snowball:

I posted here earlier today, but it appears I forgot to hit save or something as it is not here. 

Just want to acknowledge that you are 💯 percent correct AMY. It would be a blessing if I can have my shoulders not be so painful.  I do believe this cortisone shot is working as my pain level is considerably less, and I am able to type so much easier. 


JANE, I know with out a doubt that you do have personal experience how we feel our recovery is not as quick as we want it to be.  I just want to do my best to cooperate in my therapy so I can get my shoulder work ing again‼️  You take care and continue with your positive outlook as you get stronger ‼️

Thank you, PATRICIA.... I am on the way to some good relief from my pain, and I hope GLORIA will get her shoulder some cortisone relief as well.

SHIRLEY, we are breaking all kind of records here right now....temperatures and days of no perception😩😩. Thinks are getting dire here! 

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND 🎄

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Morning has come and so has Cooper!  He's such a good little boy!  And morning is glorious!

I wish healing and rest for everyfriend who needs it!  Keep on keeping on!

Today we have a nurse and a therapist coming so I'll have to get cleaned up a bit before they come.  I've managed to make the bed for the past four mornings and it feels good to be doing things.

Coffee's here!  I think this has become my third favorite part of the morning.  First is greeting any family that's in the house, second is greeting all of you and third is coffee!  You don't know the things you miss when they're not there until they're not there!

I better get moving!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday ut not as good as tomorrow.

Good morning everyone, 45 this morning and drizzling again, just enough to make everything outside wet. I noticed t he recue ambulance outside yesterday about  the time the CNA got here. Well about 5pm yesterday I noticed a paper under my door. Bad news. They took someone to the hospital with covid. Of course they will not  say who or what floor. The CNA said she  saw  the EMTs on the short hall on the first floor when she got to the elevator.  Only 2 apartments  there and  the other for the maintenance  man is empty, New one does not stay here.

PATRICIA  there are some assisted living places in  this state but none that I could afford. At times I see a commercial for one on TV and it looks like a country club more than senior living. The people look like models more than tenants.

LLOYD  glad your grands got you back with us again. We are lucky to have gands help us with  these darn computer problems. 

AMY  I copied the walnut  piecrust recipe you posted and wish I could make it. I did send it to my daughter and DIL and both emailed me saying they might try it.

PATRICIA  I don't dare copy your link to the Xmas clock. I can just "see" my great grand bugging him with checkinng it all day. Of course he has his own kids  table t wi th games on it so maybe it could be put there.

JANE  good  to know that you are spending less  time res ting in your recliner, means you are ge tting a bit more back to normal again. Eating better again, too?

SHIRLEY  does not  feel like December here ei ther.  Too warm and no snow either. Oh we had tha tvery li ttle dus ting one night but  for us  that is not snow.

JENNY  my #1 son says he thinks I have a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder all I know is I am being careful what I do.

Better get myself going, CNA another different one- will be here at 11 and I have not had breakfast or dressed yet.

Have a good day and stay healthy and be safe.

I'm here but need to shower & wash my hair for a quick run to Walmart again. I'm getting me the remote thingy to turn off outside lights if I get them put up today!  I hate having to go out & unplug before going to bed but don't want to leave them on all night. With the new strands of LED lights it probably wouldn't be as expensive, but don't know about the rest of you, EVERYTHING I go to buy these days is about triple what it was a year ago! This is the day we are supposed to get to mid-or upper 70s, so will be griping about the heat by night, you think?  ;)

Gloria, my friend here has had a shoulder paining her so much she doesn't sound like herself at all, says it's not in the joint but muscle that joins below the joint. I don't think I've ever had a pain there so no clue what the rotor cuff feels like. She thinks it may be a pinched nerve but neither one of us know a chiropractor we would recommend or go to near here. Both of us think we know more than our doctors  ::)  ;)  (okay, at OUR ages we do know OUR bodies better than they do....)  Hope the person with Covid survives and it doesn't spread. Have most had the shots?  Stay safe!!!

Sounds like some are perking up but some still praying for relief of pains, so hugs to all and enjoy your day the best you can!  :christmastree:  :snowman:  :clap:

Callie, I just checked & it says 74° right now. I'm seeing it, feeling it and still don't believe I'm not dreamming. Speaking of which, time to get a few zzzzzzzzs & start the day over. All I've done is feed cats, eat & shower, went to Walmart & home to eat again, feed cats and they are all zoned out so making me super sleepy.... "and away we go"..... I should be out stringing up lights & decorations but I feel like I'm drugged so sleepy. Always another day, right?

CallieOK

Shirley,  my  cell phone says it's 84. Local TV station says its 74. Either way, that's weird for mid-afternoon on December 2./size]

JaneS

Well, where is everyone?  No one's been by here since a little after 3 today!

I had a nice walk down the street to the mail box and then I sat out on the porch swing for about 15 minutes when I got back.  I hard boiled some eggs and had a nice egg salad with some oddities mixed in for my lunch.  I've worked my way through all the newspapers that came while I was in the hospital doing all the crossword puzzles and word jumbles on the way.

Tonight, when Christy made dinner, I joined in an did a jar of my canned taters in the air fryer.  It's the first time Christy's had them and she loved them! 

I still can't eat a lot at one time and I have to mash it up with my fork so I just had some more of it for my bedtime snack.  Today has been a good day for me and I hope all of you are healing your hurts and getting your rest.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

P.S. Our temps got into the mid 50s and that's pretty good for Dec. in PA!
