Oldiesmann: I must not have set the permissions correctly for that board when I set the site up again a few years ago (long story - there was a server crash years ago and no backup, so we had to start over from scratch). I'll fix it soon.

good Morning everyone. It is too early to check on the little one.mom and dad both stayed in the room with him. he is on oxygen. necessary but a kick in the but even for a full grown person. I can hardly fathom a infant like that. but as you all said he is gods hands and good care of a good staff. I know he has lot of good prayer n his behalf. thanks.



Good morning.  Still dark out here. 

Gloria,  I think it is hard for any of us, especially people at our age, to  be happy with someone else doing what we feel like we should be doing.  It is hard at our age to accept changes, but there comes a time, when it can happen. So far, I am still able to dust and run the sweeper around.  Not like I used to, but it is enough.  I bought a nice electric cleaner that does a great job on my kitchen and bathroom floors.  It almost runs by itself.  Sometimes things just get a "lick and a promise".  I am not nearly as "picky" as I used to be. 

I am going to an Amish market this morning with my son and DIL.  So I need to  get myself moving.  I had planned to take a shower last night, but fell asleep and decided just to wait until this morning.  Maybe that will help me wake up.

Lloyd, hope your little great-grandson is better today.  Hard to see such a little one in that situation.

Hope everyone has a great day.



Good morning everyone.

Raining this morning, just hope it does not freeze! I did get a lot done yesterday...more than I thought I would. Today is take it as it comes..no plans.

Joy, sounds like you have an enJOYable day ahead of you. Love going to markets and seeing all the wares they have for sale. Atmosphere is different a happy place to be.

Lloyd, I bet your great grandson is fighter like you and in a few days will be off the oxygen.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  My daughter is picking me up for the Amish Store in a little while so this might be interrupted.  She'll text me when she leaves her hours and I'll post..ready or not!

I have only one of my TX/OK boxes ready.  The other two are ready to pack but I need some packing material and just texted Cathy to see if she can grab some newspapers on the way out the door to use for packing. 

I have a kind of nice thing to share....  Kiran, my almost 13 year old granddaughter and the youngest, texted me yesterday to ask when we were going to do the "Toys for Tots" thing.  We've been doing this together ever since she was 3 years old.  We make a special trip to WM and she picks out some Barbie stuff and some hot wheels or something else for boys and we deposit it in the collection box and then we have lunch or whatever at McDonalds.  I almost forgot but she didn't.  If I haven't left her with anything else, this and her love for the Library and reading will be enough!  Even with all the technical stuff she's been exposed to she still likes to read and we can still enjoy a trip to the library together.

My all time favorite Hallmark Christmas movie was on last night and I woke up in time to see the end of it.  I'll have to get out my copy and watch it...maybe tonight.  It's called "The Christmas Card" and you would all love it if you got a chance to watch it.

I'm going to wrap this up because I'm sure Cathy will be texting any minute. 

I wish you all a lovely day!
Make it your own in every way!

JOY, have fun at the Amish Market!

well I just talked to Nicole. they are still in the HP. but the baby is off oxygen and breathing on his own. talk is they are going to keep in there at least until tomorrow. thanks for all the prayer's.



Good Morning,

Yesterday was sunny and so warm that DIL and I only needed sweaters while we were out running around....Well, actually, she took me to a "maintenance" doctor's appointment but she had errands of her own to do on her way home, so we only did one of mine.  She is so sweet to help me and we always enjoy our time together. 

Today, as predicted, is cloudy and cold.  I still need to go to Walgreen's and Braum's (local dairy store) but then I'm "in for the duration". Doesn't mean I'll have nothing to do- but, at least, I won't have to be anywhere at a certain time and am not anticipating anyone being here.

So, Janie, I'm optimistic about :calm:  ;D

Good thoughts and prayers going out to all who are experiencing health issues for themselves and loved ones.


Just a quick note to MARY ANN...

Your prediction came true! The black and blue (and red and green and yellow and brown) has jumped my nose and took over the other eye, too.  Darn, I was hoping you'd be wrong about that.  I look like those Kitchen Witches that everyone loves so much.  Well, anyway, the love is there.

Gotta go get my other box for TX packed before Kiran texts me that she's ready to go.

Hope you are all enjoying your day....DALLIE, I hope your "high hopes" are coming true.

:clap:  :clap:  :clap: Lloyd, sounds like things are going in the right direction!!

Jane, do you tell folks that ask "you should see the other guy" ?  I am just glad you didn't break anything as you know we can do that rather easy now. What a joy that Kiran still wants to go this with Grammie....have fun you two.

Made a pot of beef barley soup for lunch so better go give it a stir and see if it needs anything else.

Well, now I have heard it all. The rain turned to big flakes of snow and when I pointed it out to hubby..he just said they are rain drops with white parachutes. :2funny:

Amy, I like your husband's sense of humor -raindrops with white parachutes!

Jane, I'm sorry my prediction came true.  I wore dark glasses that covered up a lot of my color, but not all.  I think I did not go to church for three weeks, but If I had to go out, I did.  The surprising thing was when some of it came back a few weeks later.  I was fortunate that I didn't land on my eye - and you were too.

Tom and I spent more time with his granddaughters this morning.  They are so cute and so good.  We went to Barnes and Noble a second week to hear a story being read, then took them to McD's so they could play in the play area.

It is wonderful to read the uplifting notes of sharing and caring in here - it isn't just because of "the season" but it is the normal nice response of everyone posting over the years.  I love to read it!

Don makes Christmas cards with the computer every year and individual birthday cards too - I just finished envelopes and now to take them to the post office to mail the stack.  All presents are ready to be mailed and it is a good feeling.  We will be with two of my cousins & their spouses for Christmas Eve day and one son will be with us as well.

Amy: and Gloria: Most of our life we have found good people.  Only a few disappointments - when a renter left us without furniture and had asked for an extension on rent - we wanted to help and they stole stuff.

Sandy:  I hope your cataract surgery mends quickly.  Best wishes!

Floyd:  I am glad to read baby is getting better.  Take care of yourself too.

Jane:  Good for you for teaching your grands to share.  They will be more aware of the people in need.

Seems I can only get in here late at night......

LLOYD, so happy to read the little one is off of the oxygen and doing better.

JANE, I am sorry your face looks like you went 3 rounds with Joe Lewis.  Bruising is strange the way it moves around.  It will probably last a good week. 

SHIRLEY, I join the rest in feeling badly after reading the situation about your kitty cats😢. Sure hope you start to feel much better. 

It has been a rough couple of days.  Michele's Gamma Knife treatment was long and quite uncomfortable for her as the mask was much too tight and it kept giving her terrible headaches.  There was nothing the6 could do for her other than release her from the table and get the mask off of her face for a bit.  We were shocked to read that they had to treat 13 tumors! All of which were new ones😩😢😭. The last ones they did were gone, than God, and now we just hope and pray that these will be too and that no more present🙏🙏

Son in California called this AM just devastated after hearing that a good friend was found dead after a grand maul seizure.  We have known him for years and it was quite the shock to hear the news.  I did feel so badly for Mark.  Mark and Family are going to Arizona early next month and were going to stay with this friend.  The friend was looking forward to meeting Jonah😩😢

I must get off to bed....pleasant dreams to all.
