I'm off to the haystack as soon as possible, but I'm glad to see GLORIA posting.  I also hope your Dr. visit went well and your questions were all answered.  I also hope you are feeling better every day!

AMY, I made all the "lollipops" but a different song went through my head.  Since I started with ducks, it was...."Little duckie duddle, went wading in a puddle, went wading in puddle quite small.  Said he, 'it doesn't matter how much I splash and splatter 'cause I'm olny a duckie after all".

Then it was bunnies and Easter Parade came to minde!  They are all made and bagged and waiting in the fridge.  Tomorrow they get separated and boxed for mailing and bagged for delivery to the kids down the block.

The temp got up into the mid 40s today but it was windy so it didn't feel so warm.  I went outside to bring in my trash can after the collector left and when I put it back where it belonged there was a nice clean like-new scrub bucket tight up against my house.  Anyone need a bucket?

I'm off to the haystack.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

HELLO from ARKANSAS 🌳 The sun is shining and it is getting nice and green here! The kids new home is wonderful......Right on the golf course where Mark works.  A member just bought this place and was planning to rent it, so Mark jumped on it right away.  They plan to buy a home but this place will be great for them and they can take their time looking for just the right place.

We were SO happy to arrive here yesterday afternoon.  Even though we took it pretty easy and stopped a LOT, that was a long drive.  Everything went well, aside from my state trooper incident, and we are thankful for a safe journey.  We had some very strong winds and quite a bit of rain, but the treating looking clouds thankfully did not turn into a tornado like the storm projectors indicated they could.

Hope you all are doing great.....pleasant dreams to all.


Lloyd Hammond

where in ARKANSAS are you? do the Math and see how far you are from Holden Mo. Rule route, we are 6,3/4 miles north east of Holden, our motor home, Is still down and we do not have money to stay in Motels. but if you want to come here you can spend a few days in it, it has electricity Pugged in and Proppian in the tank.so has heat or cool witch ever is needed for comfort. the Proppian would Las several days. and it may be warm enough to not need the heat. Grand and great Grands are living in our down stairs , so it is full and until we get camper fixed it is dead in the waters for travel, but would be a good place for a while, and you could just relax there. oh yes we can run a water hose and fill the water tank for showers bathing and drinking and dish water,



Good Morning Everyfriend!  This will be a short one because it's almost time for Mickie's breakfast and then Cooper's arrival.  My daughter is arriving from Maryland sometime this morning and I'm not ready for company yet!  I have a job for us to do together when she gets here and I'm not ready for that yet either.

JENNY, I'm glad you had a safe trip with no bad weather to slow you down.  That house sounds like a very good plan for your kids!  It couldn't have worked out much better.  I'm assuming that since you drove one of their cars there, you will be flying back to Denver when you're ready?

Gotta go...I wish you all a good day, better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning..

Too dark to see what the day will be but starting out at 23°. Laundry day and it will dry in no time on the line.

Jenny when David is in Arkansas, not sure which town he stops and picks up a case of Nick's BBQ sauce. My friend lived in Little Rock. Mark was lucky to find a place to rent and now he has all the time to look for a home. As much as you have enjoyed your time with the kids I bet you will really enjoy your own bed.

Jane, enjoy your visit! Is all your snow gone?

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Oh my gosh, I just explored his menu and gained 50 lbs!!!

Good Morning Everyone from
the warming up (a bit) rocky coast of Maine. 

I received my 2nd Covid Vacination  and have
not had many side effects from it,  except for
a sore arm and a foggy brain.   

I was lucky enough to prevent myself from taking
a terrible fall at the thrift store
down stairs...  I miss stepped on two very
high steps and some how was able to prevent myself
from falling down on the stairs/floor.  I have  been
reliving my almost catastrophic fall
and realize now that I must always take my
rollator with me to prevent that from happening
to me again. 

I AM  ok.  Glad that my Covid shots are
over and done with and very grateful that I
did not get hurt in a potential devastating fall. 

Today is a very good day.   



Sing like no one's listening.
Love like you've never been hurt,
Dance like nobody's watching, and
Live like it's heaven on earth.

Good morning everyone! It's minus 21 here, and we're still blanketed in snow. Alan and Dora are doing well, and luckily their covid seems to be mild as they're in their eighties. Alan believes he picked it up at the grocery store and brought it home to Dora. Our morning calls and texts have slowed down as everyone is so tired of this winter and this entire situation. Spring cannot come soon enough!

Other than that, we are doing well.


Sandy with all that is going on ,you sure don't need any broken bones to deal with.Thank goodness you saved yourself from harm!

Patricia, the 80 + year olds are getting their vaccines now...not sure when the rest of us will get them I heard it was the Maderna vaccine ,will make a call to our GP and see if Kyle can take it also. While hanging out the laundry I listened and watched some geese go over.....nice to hear and see.

Amy, we won't see the geese or other returning birds for the next month. April will be brown, gray, and white with rain, while May will have the first greening mid-month with the first planting by Memorial day at the end of the month.

We normally have short but amazing three-month-long summers, with August and September bringing rain and cooling temperatures.


Patricia, we really appreciate summer here.as long as it doesn't get too hot. We either freeze or fry..

Turkey was still at the store ,chasing any vehicle that came in. I would like to bundle him up and let him go where there are more. I was told that the other two in his clutch were killed and I would love to see this one survive!

Would you be allowed to set up a cage with food inside and a trap door as they do with stray cats and dogs? Or a rescue center might have some ideas?

We used to have hot summers of 70 plus to about 104°, but the last three summers have been all rain.


Good Afternoon,

Jenny, so glad you arrived safely.  This is a gorgeous time of year in the Ozarks.  Good time to be there.

Oh my, Sandy, you were lucky to save yourself from that fall. Rollators are handy things to have - but I wish mine was easier to fold up and get in the car. 

Amy,  Several years ago, I looked out my back windows and saw 10 wild turkey hens perched on the fence and sitting on the grass.  Turned out there was a flock going up and down the creek that runs along the west side of this property and they'd been seen in other neighborhoods.  Wish I could have seen them getting from the creek to my yard; that would have been quite a parade!

I've seen Canada geese at the pond over the past several days; looks as if they're trying to find a nesting spot. 

Guessing our herons will be here before too long.

Saw two ducks flying over when I opened the blinds this morning.  We had a mama with 8 ducklings one summer and named her "Octo-Duck" (remember the news stories about "Octo-Mom", the woman who had 8 babies at once?).

I should do something about the papers setting on top of the shredder but will probably try to finish the e-book I've been reading.  Probably be too cool to sit on the patio but I might try.

Hope Everyfriend Everywhere is having an Enjoyable Day.


Callie, that would have been a sight to see!  I have watch a male strut his stuff and he is just beautiful, their feathers shine. I just hope this one doesn't get hit on the road.

Good evening everyone. I do not take the shots. I do in public Place's were the Mask. have a three seated SUV. Va gave me a electric scooter, and a loader that you drive it onto. and get off and Push a button that raises it up and into the van, after folding the handle bar assembly down and the back of the seat down, I push a button and it raises it up and in the van. I can lead a grocery cart with my left hand along side and load grocery's in the cart. I can stand up ok but legs hurt. so i ride the scooter in the store. It is 49 degrees now and we had a high of 63 today. Good night and sweet dreams.



Good morning..
Another awesome day in the making here. I know we will get snow and colder weather but we are really enjoying this warmer weather now. Come summer we will likely be complaining of the heat!
Think I over did it yesterday, between laundry and baking
  and other household chores. You will find oatmeal cookies ,Bachelor Buttons and some Hawaiian bread in the hidey hole. The bread is nice toasted too!

A day of rest here..

Jane, did you get tuckered out yesterday too?

Lloyd, did you manage to corral those two cows?

Joy hope all is well there

Better get a wiggle on it and meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning everyone. AMY No only have the one in home pasture. I think the  neighbor has either sold or just is keeping the other two. I am not hurrying ,i am weighting to see how things go in court. Just pray for us that things go as they should. we are just leaving it In god's hands. we are going to live until god wants things deafferent. He will prevail. we Have 53º and going to 67º and partly cloudy the weather guesser says. On Sunday's I do nothing except eat and maintain my fat and hold the couch down. and watch TV. visit if someone drops by. and love the g great grands if the stay home. love them all but the 2&1/2 year old spend s a lot of tome on my Lap watching pigs where we can fiend them on TV. do not why he has taken such a fancy to the nasty crashers. but he dose and anything to share the quality time. I slept in way late today, so going to go take my blood sugar and eat something for a early noon meal just leave morning meal out. oh on the cattle I am going to build A branding Iron. with dry Ice it just freezes dries and leaves the hair white. can register the brand and follow it. if one of the cows show up in a sale barn, thay will have to prove they have a legally ownership as a sale receipt or get a visit with the Sherf,



 :) Good "Whatever it is" to Everyfriend.  Yes, I did wear myself out yesterday and I slept like a log last night.  I actually stopped by the office on my way to bed but I was too tired to think and the ZZZZZZZs were huge and really dragging me along so I gave up and went to bed.

Christy and Frankie slept at Frankie's apartment last night and Christy took Cooper and came over here early today and we had a nice breakfast together and then talked and got caught up.  Christy tried to text Frankie around 11 and there was no answer so she decided to go over and root her out of bed so they could spend some time together before she has to head home.  I'm not sure when to expect them back.

The doggies are both resting from their labors and I'm going to join them until the kids get back.  Lunch is going to be soup out of a jar unless they stop somewhere on the way back. 

I hope you all have a good day....better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

A SUNDAY HELLO from Springdale Arkansas on this beautiful first day of spring 🌱 🪴 🌺

We went to a lovely park and Jonah had so much fun playing! I am soaking up all this nice sunshine today as storms are moving in tomorrow ☔️

Our youngest son had a scare yesterday morning just after 8 AM.   A man in a pickup truck fell asleep driving into his cul de sac and mowed down the tree in his front yard.  There are several young children on the street and thankfully he did not hit one of them.  He was not drunk or on drugs as far as they could determine....he said he was tired and just fell asleep at the wheel after working all night and coming to a second job at a home on the street! 

LLOYD, I will take a look at a map to see how far we might be from you here in Springdale. We are even with Tulsa OK on a map just to the East.  We can't visit this trip but maybe one of the trips in the future we will be able to.  Wish we could have met up with you, CALLIE, but next time for sure.  I wonder who else might be in this area?  Thank you for your offer....you are so kind. 

SANDY, I am sure glad you caught yourself and did not fall.  I never imagined I would feel so vulnerable to a fall, but I sure do!  It is frightening. I have the same rollator as you do and I must use it when I am out walking about!  I took it to the park today and with the large wheels I can go just great on any surface.

AMY, I am not familiar with Nick's BBQ or their Sauce, but I looked it up!  My oh my, you are right.....yummmy looking food.  We tried to order from a BBQ place here last night that had a high rating but their internet ordering system was down and they do not take telephone orders😩😡

JANE, we will be flying home from here this coming Wednesday.  Sadly it appears there household goods will not make it here in time for us to help them get settled😡. Our airline of choice is SouthWest and they do not fly into NW Arkansas, so we will rent a car and drive to Tulsa OK to catch our flight. 

ENJOY the rest of your Sunday💐

CALLIE, I saw a heroin here in the park today.  There was a creek and he was walking in it. 



1. Being a little older, I am very fortunate to have someone call and check on me every day. He is from India and very concerned about my car warranty.
2. Dove Chocolate   tastes WAY better than their soap.
3. It helps if you imagine auto correct as a tiny little elf in your phone, who's trying so hard to be helpful... but is in fact...quite drunk.
4. They say we can have gatherings of up to eight people without any issues. I don't know eight people without any issues.
5. We should train all Amazon delivery drivers to give the vaccine. The whole population would be immunize by Saturday. (Thursday if you've got PRIME!)
6. One day 2020 will be the one-word  Catch-Phrase for everything messed up!! "How's your day?" "A total 2020. "Say no more."
7. Another reason to wear a mask: You can mouth the words 'Sc#ew You' directly to someone's face...ALL DAY! (and they will never know)
8. We all know mirrors don't lie. I'm just GRATEFUL...they don't LAUGH!!
9. Who would have thought one day some would be smoking weed at a family gathering ...but the illegal part would be the FAMILY GATHERING!!
10. Apparently it's only appropriate to say, "Look at YOU! YOU got so BIG!" ...to children. Adults tend to get offended.
11. They say every piece of chocolate you eat shortens your life by two minutes. I've done the math.  Seems I died in 1537.
12. Warning: Bars need your help! We can only open to 1/3 capacity! Those who cannot drink for THREE...are kindly asked to leave their place to the PROFESSIONALS!!
13. One minute you're young and fun. And the NEXT, you're turning down the stereo in your car to SEE better!
14. So... you've been eating hotdogs and McChickens all your life, but don't want the vaccine because, "you don't know what's in it???"
15. We are not aging, we are ripening to PERFECTION!!!  (...I think  I'm a little over ripe)


Tome, lot of good giggles to read in this. I am passing this on..thank you!

Glad to have you pass it on, Amy.  I just sat here and laughed out loud when my friend sent it to me!


I also enjoyed it and forwarded on. Altho, #14 really made sense to me!


Hello all!  TOMEREADER, I giggled my way through it, too, and I'm forwarding it, also.  That's one I haven't heard yet.

My company is all safely home and I'm ready for the haystack!  The zzzzzs all have my name on them again tonight.  Christy brought a CD with some old family movies on it and we all had some chuckles watching that.  I really had cute little kids and they've all grown up well, too.  They're not only handsome and pretty, they smart, kind and caring.  I guess you can tell I love them!

I'm off to the haystack!  Tomorrow is another day!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning...

We are  supposed to be spoiled again with another glorious day today.. we will take it!

Going to be a busy day here, folks are coming to pick up 2 trugs and then we are off to the lumber store for more material for another one! Folks stopped in yesterday , looked at all the trugs on the front lawn and decided to get one.

I need to head back to the store I was in yesterday to pick up 3 sets of sheets that are on sale. Told my friend about them and she needs 3 sets  for her fil.While there I will pick up what I forgot yesterday..matches.one box for the shop and one for the house.

We went to the country store yesterday and looked and looked for Tom T Turkey.......couldn't find him until.......look up...look waay up...there he was up on the light standard over the gas pumps. He is becoming quite the celebrity there.

Better get my duds on.....hope we hear from Gloria, Shirley, Phyllis and Joy today..

Enjoy your day and stay safe!

Quick GOOD MORNING EVERYFRIEND!  Then it's time for the boinger, breakfast for Mickie and me, a quick walk and then Cooper's arrival!

I'm cooking and cleaning today.  Lots of stuff to wash up and put away.  I have a dentist appointment tomorrow but I think I'm rescheduling it for early April.  I changed my Medi-Gap insurance as of April first and I'm thinking if there is any kind of a billing delay on this one, I might end up having to pay all of it. 

AMY, the "Trug Business" seems to be taking off!  Good for you and Kyle!

Hello, to anyone who shows up later!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Yesterday was "one of those days". Started with church & ended with son, Andy, coming over to fix a leaky faucet plus pumping too much rain water out of the pool & ended with a flooded room in the basement & water shut off for the night. Bummer. Much easier to do without water out camping than at home!! These copper pipes came with a house built back in mid '60s so with settling on this sandy river bank, spring a leak now & then. Too often in my opinion. Andy happened to walk past where it was spewing out, right near the furnace & hot water heater. Tried soldering a new piece in but couldn't get it to take so getting the other type connections as soon as Mennards opens. He is so good to stop whatever he has going on & fix my problelms. I do insist paying him in spite of his protests, just tell him I won't call when in trouble. Not exactly what I planned for the day. I do hope to have running water for a shower before my eye appointment tomorrow. She wants to check progress of the red eye to make sure it will be ready for the other eye on April 5. Still having to put Lotemax drops in & not sure even that isn't causing more trouble. My body objects to any medication so always a challenge.

Amy, I'm enjoying the Tale of the Turkey and hope it wins the battle. Would think a farm store would have a big net like used to capture the goose behind my house that had fish line around it's leg. Kind of like those folding sun shades, spring loaded so when he threw the net it opened around the bird & held it until someone could hold it's wings down. Also those folding pens that can be set up as traps..... or bring a pet turkey to teach it manners! Does it attack humans?  I opened the door to let Tom & Callie out while ago and every kind of bird song I ever heard... best music EVER. Cloudy & rain all around, 54°, not sure what the high for the day, but heard rain, rain, rain.

Jane, I feel like you when looking at the old pics of my kids..... still think they were the best & wouldn't trade for any others.  :thumbup: I like 'em as well as love 'em.

Can't wash dishes & have a sink full. Made a pot of potato, celery, onion soup last night that turned out especially tasty since I added a couple small cloves of garlic to it. Had 2 hearts of celery so really flavorful and topped a bowl full off with shredded cheddar cheese, yum & plenty of dirty dishes/pot waiting to wash & put away. Also made a loaf of French toast for myself. I made some while Julie-Ellen was here & she loved it so much I made another loaf for her to take home. She didn't realize I use from 8-12 eggs in mine as well as a cup & half of sugar, teaspoon of vanilla with dash of salt & maybe half a cup of milk. My mother snuck in eggs any way she could to get them down us when we were little so I did the same. My French toast is good to pop in the toaster & just butter & eat or on a plate with syrup. After seeing in the frozen food dept at the store I figured I could make my own to take camping, heat in toaster or skillet.

Round 2 of fixing pipes... hope to get done by noon & then the fun begins turning off faucets all over the house (even washer, etc) because water kept draining into pipe needing soldering. For sure hot water heater will be next, checked date of & is 2007. Yikes! I am really tired of this house needing constant TLC but it is HOME to 3 cats so will hang on.

My trug is still in its box & I think it is planting season here. Ah, well........Better get busy, Andy has gone to the hardware store. Tom is at the door, he doesn't like all the company (think he is jealous of my kids getting more attention than he does).

As someone once said, "Don't pray for an easier life, pray to be stronger"....
Love ya all.Shirley


:smitten:  :smitten:  :smitten: Just love this weather!!! I know we will pay for this but in the mean time we are thoroughly enjoying that warm sunny day! Help loaded up the two trugs then into town for more supplies. While hubby worked on the order for another trug I washed the van....well chased the dirt around would be more like it.
Just came home from letting the next door neighbours dog out and will now think about supper. I did make a pot of chicken soup this morning and cooked some apple sauce from gala apples that were hard.

I did see a robin!! I know I heard one yesterday but didn't see it but today he was eating? the seed .

Shirley, I hate leaky pipes and know how frustrating it can be to fix. Hope you get yours fixed and all the areas dry.  Will keep you posted on Tom T Turkey :)

Good evening everyone. I don't know how to get a link about a Program from T V to here. but I found a girl on you tube that makes home made bread from scratch to finish in a little over a hour.with yeast, I think just 4 ingredients I will see if grand deaughter can help me. she is pretty busy now with teaching and collage classes for her Masters degree to do special eud. teaching. talk to you all later.



Another day has come to an end and I'm ready to hit the haystack!  I made a ham meatloaf, baked potatoes and peas for supper and when Frankie came home from work she had supper.  She doesn't care for meat loaf but she liked the ham meatloaf.  So did I and before anyone starts asking for recipes, I bought it ready to bake at the Mennonite Store but I am going to research a recipe.  I might never make my own because this one was good and not all that expensive.

For lunch today, I had home canned carrot soup in a very nice mug that said "Someone Special" on the side of it.  I'm wondering if that means I'm special or that "Someone Special" gave it to me for Christmas.  I'm betting on the second one!

We had another sign of Spring today.  We smelled our first skunk of the season tonight!  I hope they keep their distance.  We don't need that smell....except to add to the fact that Spring is definitely Springing around here.

AMY, it sounds like the robin wasn't on the wing if it was eating.  That's a good sign of Spring.  If it was on the wing, Spring is a bit off in the distance.

Must go seek out the zzzzzs.  The haystack calls.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one.
