Robert Desnos 1900 - 1945
I have dreamed of you so much that you are no longer real.
Is there still time for me to reach your breathing body, to kiss your mouth and make
your dear voice come alive again?

I have dreamed of you so much that my arms, grown used to being crossed on my
chest as I hugged your shadow, would perhaps not bend to the shape of your body.
For faced with the real form of what has haunted me and governed me for so many
days and years, I would surely become a shadow.

O scales of feeling.

I have dreamed of you so much that surely there is no more time for me to wake up.
I sleep on my feet prey to all the forms of life and love, and you, the only one who
counts for me today, I can no more touch your face and lips than touch the lips and
face of some passerby.

I have dreamed of you so much, have walked so much, talked so much, slept so much
with your phantom, that perhaps the only thing left for me is to become a phantom
among phantoms, a shadow a hundred times more shadow than the shadow the
moves and goes on moving, brightly, over the sundial of your life.


   A man and a woman were having dinner in a fine restaurant.  Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few paces away noticed that the man was slowly sliding down his chair and under the table, with the woman acting unconcerned.

The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. Still, the woman dining across from him appeared calm and unruffled, apparently unaware that her dining companion had disappeared.

After the waitress finished taking the order, she came over to the table and said to the woman, 'Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table.'

The woman calmly looked up at her and replied firmly, 'No he didn't.  He just walked in the door.'




Good morning everyone 23 but windchill feels like 9. As Amy posted yesterday I am not going out today. My son was here yesterday for his weekly visit  and surpeised me with a Italian sub, a foot long one and had half of it yesterday, really enjoyed it. Oldest son and wife should be home today from their cruise. My daughter and SIL will ber heading to Phoenix today till Friday. My SIL will be going int o the Mayo clinic to have a kidney out. It is a 3 hour drive from where they live so will be staying till Friday so the drive home will not be as bad for my SIL. My oldest DIL had a kidney out about 20 years ago and doing good. I will not be on Skype with her till they get home. Sure will miss our daily visit on Skype. Some prayers would be appreciated for my SIL. He is a good man.

ROLEY PETER  so good to see you. So sorry you and your wife both had some bad health. Pray both of you will be doing better now.

AMY  like the not going out from yesterday morning. yesterday was a nice sunny day but not warm and not as windy as it has been so walked my son out to his car when he left. Did not stay out long.

JANE  I am on a streak of waking too early in the mornings and by 9pm I am sound asleep. Almost back to my working days. Enjoy your daughter and Frankie's visit.

LLOYD  I did bundle up yesterday and had a short walk outside but was glad to get back inside where it is warm.

PHYLLIS  have not thought of Sadie Hawkins day in years. Wonder if Daisy May (Mae?)  captured Li'l Abner yet.

SHIRLEY  the day I went down on one knee it was not the knee that got me it was not having strength in my arms and legs to get myself back up.  Oh boy you made the thing of the original State Fair with your =it isn't even spring.

JANE  in the original  State Fair it was Dick Haymes and Jeanne Crane and Dana Andrews. The remake years later had Pat Boone but by then Jeanne Crane would have been too old. I think the first one was in the mid 1940's. We used to go to the movies a couple of times a week.

MARY ANN  hanging clothes on the line in winter at times would be frozen to the line before I could get a pin on them but boy did they smell good.

CALLIE  those were all the things we played in the school yard. It was a neighborhood school and after going home after school many of us went back to the school yard to play.

AMY  where ever did you fine Daisy and Abner? He was always running away from her. Love it. Yes the snow NUT is Shirley. Like me she loves snow but I no longer enjoy being out in it and am still waiting for some snow here. I think you kept it all for yourself.

SHIRLEY  I was always a quiet kid and never got in trouble. Being the youngest in a big family I was alone with my parents most of the time.  My 3 got Flying Sucers ffor Christmas one year, they were aluminum and round. Even I went down the hill having a ball with them. I had lots of fun with my 3 than I did when I was their ages.

TOMEREADER1 living here in the north east we always had a lot of snow. We all had sleds to enjoy and ice skates for all the ponds we had to skate on when frozen.  In those days there were no boys playing hockey on the ice. Thanks for the laugh I got about needing a nap after getting the bottom sheet on the bed. I cannot do the sheets on my bed alone, thank goodness I have a CNA who does it.

BUBBLE  thank you for the new March "book" to write in, Great graphics, stories.

Have a good day.

I'm up, moving slowly but attem. Cats are fed, the girls wanted breakfast in bed. Got to hurry & eat an egg sandwich, get dressed & off to church. Will be back later.

FYI... the day I changed sheets on that Tempurpedic bed I honestly did need a nap after. Trying to lift that mattress enough to tuck anything in was more that this old lady has done since the last time! Nobody uses that bed but daughter thought she might come in for a couple days & changed her mind, too many trips for her the last 2 months. I take naps on it, lay cross way on top of the cat sheet & keep a huggy throw to cover with. I listen to TV while sleeping.

Gloria, I will say extra prayers for him this morning. Any time they removed parts of the body it is very serious in my book.

Beautiful graphics & love the text, Bubble. Did not see that coming with the "husband" sliding under the tale.  ;D

Good morning to all... Love ya... Shirley

Lloyd Hammond

Good Morning everyone. It is 49º here now and clear,supposed to get cloudy this afternoon. and chance of rain this afternoon and tonight,tomorrow. Have a great day today just as you like it.



Good morning everyone.
Beautiful bright sunny day here....smoke is going straight up so you know that means it is cold!! We are warmer than yesterday but still cold at - 22° F .

 A day of rest here..had another waltz with the snow blower ,making wider trails for the digs and cleaning up the driveway.

Bubble, thank you for the new start, At first I thought the man was trying to get out of paying the bill, then I realized what was happening. Thank you for the chuckle!

Gloria,I think kids of today miss out on some of the things we did as children. We do have wonderful memories to look back on. Remember when Lil Abner was in the Sunday Comics? Prayers for your SIL,let us know how he is doing.

Shirley, I have created monsters, one can't sleep in here, first it was jabbering Blue Jays and then the hollering Crows!
Dogs like to sleep in also, they don't get up until I do. ..

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day everyone.

G'Morning All. Thank you all for your good wishes, greatly appreciated and in return I wish you all the same.
I enjoyed reading your post Shirley(and others!),thanks for giving me the chance to a join in your chit-chat and the reminiscences you ask for ie-30s,40s,50s, I find it very interesting to read of others past life's adventures !, here is a 'Brief' story of my life (So far !).
The 30s- at Eighteen months of age caught polio, spent that decade in Hospital and discharged at the outbreak of war 1939.
Then 1940s - I remember those years especially well! the first bombing raids and my fathers instructions to lay down on the ground or take cover !, another time, being caught out in the open 'the local Park' and remembering my father's words  !; to'take cover' I  walked into the nearest cover ie; a anti aircraft gun site ! and being carried out by a Canadian soldier and dropped into a trench, shortly afterwards my mother came looking for me, living on the south coast, the frequent machine gun attacks and 'Hit and run' bombing raids, hearing and seeing night time flashing of gun fire out in the English Channel and of course 'D' day itself a very frightening experience with very low aircraft flying overhead all day, another spell in Hospital, this time for 4+ years, discharged in 1947, started and finished work and my apprenticeship.
The 1950s - This is the decade I met my wife-to-be'Jean; we married in September 1956, raised our two children and like every one else struggled and eventually bought our own house, now we have four G/grand Children and again, like everyone else, both of us are suffering the usual 'aches and pains of old age !  :), but inspite of everything still enjoying life :thumbup:..


Merry March Oneth,

March is blowing into central Oklahoma with high winds and temperatures in the 70's.  Doesn't mean we won't have another freeze, though.

Roley,  welcome to the Soda Shoppe conversations.  I hope you'll continue adding to the chit-chat.

I have a cartoon strip on my "social comment" bulletin board in which two teenage boys are talking:

Jeremy says:  "My childhood was incredibly bland.  No drama, no heartbreak, no triumph over adversity, nothing but wall-to-wall middle class comfort and security.
His friend replies:  "Whoa!  The suffering of never having suffered!"
Jeremy says, "No wonder I'm so cranky."

That about sums up my life growing up.

Had a restless night but am determined to go to church.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.


We are enjoying our first day of  no snow in over a week and now the temp is going above the freezing mark. It's a bit early to think seriously of spring but it's a sure on my mind.


Don, -4 C here and a gorgeous day!! I think Spring is on a lot of folks mind. We are expecting snow or rain tomorrow and I don't want either one..

I can't change the direction of the wind,
but I can adjust my sails
to always reach my destination.

Amy, I had to look at that "C"twice for it to register.  I think my thermometer reads about 28 degrees, but the sun is hitting it and I'm not sure what it is.  I'm watching golf from Florida and it is nice there.  Tommy Fleetwood of England is on top.

Callie, I liked your joke.  I did have my suffering at age 17 but things were good or so-so until now and I am not complaining now, but I wonder when I will feel better.  I just wrote an e-mail to Jim's sister who  had a heart attack a few years ago, asking her how long before she felt better.  I know one month is not the answer.

I feel some of those zzzzz coming on, so I will leave and come back later.

Mary Ann


A Good Sunday evening to ALL.

We had a bit of sunshine earlier this morning before the clouds moved in and now the snow has started.  This is like the 6th Monday in a row that the morning commute will be on snow and icy roads.

We did get out to get a few groceries in this afternoon.  Bob was able to spend a bit of time in the garage to clean out the sand and dirt that we have hauled in on the car.  This is the first big job he has taken on in awhile due t9 his dizziness.  The last two mornings he has felt much better and not nearly as dizzy, but still has a bit off and on during the day.  His next appointment is on Wednesday and he will go, but we are hoping maybe that will be the last one.  🙏

We had a very nice FaceTime with Son Mark and Jonah this morning.  That boy was telling me ALL ABOUT IT and laughing so hard at times....he is getting so interactive now and it sure is fun!  He is a smiley boy all the time. 

Yesterday Granddaughter Kate did her solo dance and got the highest score of all time and other awards.  She sure does enjoy her dancing competitions.  Daddy had to take her as Michele is still resting a lot after last Wednesday's Chemo. 

Tonight, the oldest grandson is fixing Sheppards Pie for dinner for his family.  He is taking a cooking class at school right now and is really enjoying it.  He did some cooking for his Eagle Scout Merit Badge and has always enjoyed helping with cooking off and on.   

DON, spring sure is on MY mind also, but I think we are in for a lot more snow before spring! 

ROLY, I really enjoyed reading about your early years of life.  Thank you for sharing. 

BURR AMY...... I know you are keeping that fire going to keep you both and the doggies warm! 

GLORIA, I will certainly hold your SIL in my thoughts and prayers as he goes through the removal of his kidney.  This is quite concerning, but I know he is good hands with the Mayo Clinic. I know you will miss your daily chat with Regina. I hope the "cruisers" arrived home safely.

SHIRLEY, I am sure you were disappointed when you heard your daughter cancelled her trip, but at the same time I am sure you are relieved that she w8ll not be traveling.

Thank you, BUBBLE, for the nice new SS and for the goodies you shared. 

Have a good rest of your evening.



I'm going to start working toward bed time... been a busy day. Tomorrow I will send Bubble a photo of me with my 7 great grands... all so different but was a real treat to watch them play together.

We had a nicer day than yesterday, less wind, but I still did not get the rest of the leaves raked up along with another whole yard full of sweet gum balls. Too early to take leaves off the flowers, winter isn't over for sure, but these early flowers are sprouting.

Love reading about the early years. Peter, my mother and teachers were always reminding us what you & all the children were living with during the war years. I wondered if you knew back then that we had to "clean off our plate because somewhere a child did not have enough to eat".. A lot of foods, etc. were rationed for us, and we did have drills for what to do in case a plane reached the center of the US to bomb. We did have a military base 20 miles from where I grew up and were told it could be a target. We had the black outs but nothing like the real dangers you saw. My heart still aches for the children (like you) that lost those years of playing to the bombing, etc. I do remember the years of fearing polio and never knew until joining Senior Net that polio came back as "kids" got older. My best wishes for many happy days from now on!

Mary Ann, smart thinking to ask Jim's sister about her recovery time. Also consider that your body is having to adjust to medications and that can be changed as you get stronger. I don't check side effect of meds when I try something new, but if my body starts showing signs of a problem I then Google side effects. Usually I find the pills are my problem so must decide if the risk of not taking is the better option. And I don't recommend anyone stop any meds without talking it over with their doctor first... only the person can make that choice. I do hope you start feeling more like your old self, it does take time.

Gloria, still thinking about Regina's husband.... do the doctors know what caused his problem? Tell her I send hugs & prayers.

Amy, no crows around here but sure have some friendly robins. The little Juncos/snow birds are hanging around but I keep hearing flocks of geese high in the sky as they head north to Alaska! Isn't it amazing to think about the traveling the birds do??? I am going to think about getting up earlier to see more birds along the river, they will be migrating soon and stop off here. I need to take a trash bag down & pick up stuff that floated or blew in along the bank as well as some plastic trays I took down to feed wildlife. I'm thinking about calling the "fish & game" or parks to see if there is a chance they would like to burn some of the brush that has gathered along the river, instead of letting it float down to the next dam to be cleaned out. Not something I'd dare do by myself, even if they offered a permit. It needs to be done. Lots of small trees the beavers have munched off but didn't drag to the water. Getting spring fever!

Don, you are sounding more like your old self, hope you are feeling as good as you sound. 

Callie, we didn't get into the 70s but sure feels like spring, allergies in full swing! A chill for tomorrow & Tuesday but warmer the rest of the week.

I gotta shut down & check on cats. Time for bed & will be too cold to leave them out all night.

So you slipped in, Jenny! Congratulations for Kate, know how much it must mean to all of them with the suffering Michele is going through. Glad Bob is a little better, and the best medicine of all is getting to visit with that cutie, Jonah, right? How is it I am dealing with GREAT grands & you are just now enjoying the grands???


These two (my daughter and g-daughter) have kept me so busy these past two days that I'm wondering if I'm coming or going.  But the wondering only happens before I give in to weariness.  And that's what I'm doing now.  I have to go to bed right now so...

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy and rested tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning everyone. it 38º and mostly clear now @5:38 AM  and supposed to turn mostly cloudy this afternoon  and possible showers. I had a good sleep. but Nancy was restless and kept waking me up so we both got up and started our day. I have a machine that pumps preacher on and off  from my toes up my legs to my knees. it pumps the blood up to your heart and helps to not have blood clots so they say. helps to lower the swelling in my legs. feels good.Have a good day.

Good morning everyone.

What a difference in temp from  the past few days it is 20°F....so nice!

Today we are off to the vet, Babe has been favouring her hind leg and I think an xray is in order and Jesse is due for his needles. We go to a vet that is an hour away , I hope the rain or snow holds off till we are back home again.

Gloria, how is your SIL doing?

Lloyd, when Kyle was in ICU they put a machine on him just like that. He wasn't able to get up and walk about so they put that on so he wouldn't get clots. He wasn't too impressed with it but it did do what it was suppose to do.

Mary Ann...I was raised with Fahrenheit, cups, teaspoon. old school measure and I do not think much of the new. Now the kids of today are fine with it as it is what they are taught in school.

Shirley, we had to go to the dump yesterday and I tried to get photos of the eagles..there were two!! Sun ws so bright that I couldn't get a good photo, maybe next time they are there I will be able to get good photos.

Roley, hope you stop in again, enjoyed reading your post. Not an easy time of it back then either. My friend said it got that when the sirens blared they just didn't go to the shelters but stayed above ground.

Jane, bet you had a good sleep last night.

Better get a move on

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone. 24  now at 6:30 and feels like it with no windchill. Of course it is still dark so cannot see anything much outside.

SHIRLEY  I help my CNA make the bed after it is stripped. I am fussy about the way it is made so would rather help. I like the bedding tucked in on the other side I do not sleep on so it is easier for me to make it every day. Most of the ones I had when my regular CNA was out did not understand that. Thank you for your prayers. I hope my daughter will send me an email when surgery is over today. The doctors sure gave him all kinds of tests before they decided the best thing to do. The Mayo clinic kept calling them and telling them what would happen.  My DIL ( the one I call my second daughter) had a kidney out about 25 years ago and is still doing great.

LLOYD  for a change we have no rain in the forecast for the next couple of days but they have been wrong before.

AMY  I sure do remember the Sunday comics, started  them when I was learning to read. Thanks, will post how my SIL is doing when I hear. My daughter acted more nervous than he did when I talked to him yesterday.

ROLEY-PETER  like you I was born in the 30's 31 to be exact. The war did not hit us here like it did in England but we did have rationing and I remember standing in line for butter or sugar or meat when my Mother heard they had some in. Lucky we went to a neighborhood store and they waited on  me.  Of course the aches and pains have set in now.

CALLIE  my childhood was something like that Jeremy in your cartoon strip.

DON  I have been thinking of spring since the first cold day in the autumn. Instead of snow we have had rain. I would rather see some good snow instead of a dusting that is gone faster than it fell.

JENNY  hope Bob has seen the worse of his dizzyness. I had a bout of it years ago but it didn't last too long. Not a good feeling at all. Nice when we see our grands growing up. Thanks for your good thoughts.

SHIRLEY  I will be on pins and needles till I hear from my daughter.

JANE  just be gratefull you can be on the go with your daughter and granddaughter. I am getting to the stage I have leaving the house for anything.

LLOYD  glad you are sleeping better.

AMY  wow you are having a heat wave now to get above zero. I am thankful I can get out of bed every morning. Will not know how SIL is doing till I hear from my daughter later today.  I keep him in my thoughts and prayers. Like your graphic again.

Have a good day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I slept better last night than I have been lately!  I think I was tired right down to my bones!  Now I'm here waiting for the boinger after Mickie's pill and then breakfast.  My kids aren't up and around yet but we need to go to Davy's (the good produce store) so I can get a couple things that are good for lowering blood pressure.

Then Christy took today off so she can go to Bucky's funeral so that's our plan for the early afternoon.  After the boinger and breakfast, I'll have to get dressed and off to Davy's so...

I extend my prayers to all who need them and...

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

And don't forget to share it with you nosy (and loving) friends here at the SS.

Up before 6:00, fed cats but Callie wanted to go outside before she ate.... NOT to go potty, she waits until she comes back in to use those training pads. They have me well trained. Tiger now waits in the bedroom end of the house for her breakfast in bed... actually on the floor so she can sit on the floor furnace vent while she eats. Callie had hers served on the couch where she slept & Tom hops over the Dutch door to the basement as soon as he hears me come to the kitchen. I beat him to the door this morning & opened it for him. They are spoiled.

Gloria, bet you will be walking the floor until you hear from her.... when we have a crisis in the family I can't concentrate on anything until the worst/unknown is over. Thoughts & prayers go on as long as needed.... and the thank you prayers when over. My daughter went to Mayo in AZ during one of her illnesses... she's had a number of Crohn's surgeries & a couple of hernia surgeries, besides 4 kids. Right now she is in better health than since she was about 21, very pleased with herself.

Lloyd, they used those "power boots" on me in the hospital after heart surgery.... but said I couldn't bring them home. Think they thought I needed to walk, I did manage, I was only 78 at the time.

Got to go fix my breakfast. Gr-daughter said she will call later in hopes we can get together. She has severe allergy problems with cats so we will meet somewhere else. I used to wash up every sheet the cats lay on & hope that was enough. When they were little they were outside most of the time and confined to one room at night. Little by little they have taken over. I have cat beds in 2 of the bedrooms, litter box & tray to hold food & water in one, with a sheet on the floor to catch fur & dry food they spill. I really think normal house cats are not nearly as much trouble as these ferals that have to go outside every day. They bring in pollen from rolling in the grass or climbing trees, no end of trouble, but they are mine to take care of.

Wishing everyone a "Marvelous Monday".... (thanks to Callie).... with happy thoughts from me!


Everyone must be having that "Marvelous Monday" SHIRLEY wished them at about 8:30 this morning because no one has been in here all day! 

My visitors are gone and all the activities are over.  We, (Christy, my son Phil and Christy's friend Julie) all attended Bucky's funeral today.  It was sad and joyful both at the same time.  So many of their school friends made it a point to attend and it was almost like a mini class reunion in front of the chapel after the ceremony.  Bucky was well liked by a lot of people and they all made it point to come and say Goodbye and wish him well.  It was a very nice ceremony and I'm glad I went!

Now everyone is safely back in their own homes and my family is here in spirit only.  We had a good weekend and I'm "happy/tired".  So I will wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

good Night everyone, I have been cleaning up the mess the not so good tenet left. he ceritnley was not a renter as he was supposed to be.we got $100.00  for the 14 15 months he was here. I like to be a good fellow , but not that good. that may have paid the increase in utility's for three month. I have been all day sorting and getting trash bagged up to Haul off. still have to run the vacuum cleaner and scrub up the kitchen. He left some canned food,but mostly what we do not use.so I think i will box most of it up and take it to the food pantry at the church we go to, maybe some poor folks will get some good out of it that way. good night and sweet dreams everyone.



Good morning everyone. Got 2 emails from my daughter. One when they got to the Mayo in the morning and one after he was out of a  4 hour surgery. After after 4  hours in recovery she got to see him. Stll groggy and in pain. That would be normal. Then got a call from oldest son, they got back from their cruise about 1:30 yesterday afternoon. I can start relaxing a bit but will feel better when daughter and SIL are back home again.

JANE  nice there was a big turnout for Bucky. That's when you know he was well thought of by so many people.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link.

SHIRLEY  those 7 great grands are all so adorable and do look like they are a handful when all together. You are looking great.

Still early so think I will go back to bed for another snooze. That is all I have been doing since Saturday.

Have a good day.

Good morning everyone..

I am up but not at'tem..yet. Yesterday turned out way better than what the weatherman said we would get. No rain nor snow on our trip to see the vet. Babe has pulled a ligament and it takes time to heal,,,,no running about for her....can you imagine trying to stop the two dogs from playing? She is on 2 meds ,one she chews , no problem but the capsule......I am not so sure.

Going to the lumber company to pick up more wood ,hubby wants to make another trug, only smaller this time.

Shirley what a great photo of you and the children , smiles all around.

Jane, such as sad time for family and friends. Great testament to Bucky with the turn out.

Lloyd, I hope the next tenant is better and thoughtful of your place. Rome wasn't built in a day so take it easy in all the work you are doing.

Gloria, great to read your SIL is out of surgery , now will he have to stay in the hospital for a bit or can he go home. Once everyone is back in the nest them Momma hen can rest.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's supposed to be cloudy all day today but I think the sun is beginning to peek through right now.  It's 45º right now and heading for a high of 55º!  I can take that every day now!

SHIRLEY, those kids look so happy as does their GG!  You are so fortunate to have them so close by!

LLOYD, congratulations on seeing the last of a bad tenant.  Be careful with the work.  Nice and easy does it every time!  At least that's what Frank Sinatra says!

I'm up to my eyeballs in laundry today.  It's way past time!  The first load is in the dryer waiting to be folded and put away and the second load just finished it's first spin in the washer!  There are 3 more loads sorted and waiting their turn.  Gonna be busy.  And I've promised myself a trip to Davy's today with a stop at the bank on the way.  And of course, Mickie is about to demand her first walk.  She's been to the yard and that's never enough!

I guess I better get myself dressed before Mickie starts to voice her opinion. 

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

And PLEASE, share it with your friends!

The sun is in and out but they are still saying we might get some rain.  Whatever.....

We spent far too long waiting to get the car inspection done yesterday but it is finally done and the check for the vehicle taxes and new registration fees is written and will be mailed later today.  That is one more thing to cross off the list.  Now on to the taxes.

Take care, All.
