A Mother's Day Surprise

by Alan Smith (05/08/2010) | Timely Truths
Two children ordered their mother to stay in bed one Mother's Day morning. As she lay there looking forward to being brought breakfast in bed, the smell of bacon floated up from the kitchen.
Finally, the children called her to come downstairs. She found them both sitting at the table eating bacon and eggs.

"As a surprise for Mother's Day," one explained, "we decided to cook our own breakfast."

 I find it very difficult to enthuse over the current news. Just when you think that at least the outlook is so black that it can grow no blacker, it worsens, and that is why I do not like the news, because there has never been an era when so many things were going so right for so many of the wrong persons.

And he vows his passion is

One of you is lying.

Good Morning everyone. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning...

Another lovely day in the making here. Will be working outside and hope the bugs are not bad. Blackflies are out but so far not biting.

Bubble , thank you for the new beginning. Ogden Nash and Dorothy Parker would make a good couple.

Lloyd, good morning to you also.

Enjoy your day and stay  safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's going to be a gorgeous day today.  The temps didn't get below 44 overnight and they're going into the mid 70s today with partly sunny being the prediction.  This is my kind of day.

Frankie spent the night last night and she was out the door on her way to work at 5:30 a.m. this morning.  We talked about a lot of things and she said she's planning on coming over here to clean on her next day off...that's Monday!  I didn't mention it then but I'm going to be ready with the stuff and have her help me wash windows.  It's something I can't do by myself any more and she likes that job.  I'll try to find a chance to talk it up when she gets home from work. 

BUBBLE, thanks for the nice, clean, new Soda Shoppe and for the "Entertainment Corner"!  It's always nice to have good entertainment with my coffee!

I better get moving or Mickie will be telling me it's time for her walk.  I'll have to do the two of them separately this morning because Cooper is way to speedy for Mickie on a long walk and she always wants the full circle in the morning  before the sun starts beating down. 

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

Thanks, Bubble, for posting one of my old graphics.  It has always been one of my favorites and I keep reminding myself of that saying more and more often these days.  My steps may be much slower now and a bit wobblier but if they are going forward then I'm doing OK.

Dorothy Parker and, especially Ogden Nash, are two of my favorite literary people.  Thanks for the smile you gave me.  I'm thinking of you often right now.  I hope you are safe.

A beautiful morning here and no rain.  We don't plan to go anywhere since gasoline is still hard to find.  More and more stations are getting new supplies in now that the pipeline is back running but it is still hit and miss with many still having little or no gas.  Seems like just one crisis after another but we manage to get through them eventually.  And NO masks!  But, 'most everyone is still being cautious and wearing them in public....at least, for now.

Very nice to see a nice chatty post from you, Gloria.  More like old times when I saw your name pop up.

Take care, All.

I am not going to complain of this heat......but  it came fast and furious! We just take off layers and hope we don't scare the neighbours  :2funny: Did the weed eating after I filled the spool and watered some plants/seeds. Made some cinnamons to have with our tea and ready now to plant more.

Phyllis, you are right, one crisis after another in this world. We just lost a friend to covid, he was fighting cancer for a long time but covid was the real enemy. I hope your problem with gasoline soon corrects itself. Saw on the news that a man had filled plastic bags with gas and cringed at the thought!!

Loved all the readings but had a good horse laugh at the Mother's Day gift from the kids. Thank you, Bubble. Be safe, my friend.

Well, Amy, I did read the suggestion about how to help set those tomatoes on and decided if they can't do it on their own, they can be PLUCKED OUT OF THE TRUG! I am in one of those "don't mess with me moods" and going to take charge. Wellllll... thinking about it anyway.  ???  :-[   I am really enjoying the salads, just wilted lettuce that is so tender my mouth waters thinking of it.

Phyll, we are having a typical Kansas day that you would roll your eyes at. Off & on showers or storms with bright sun popping out that makes us concentrate on how to race to the store & back because "it MIGHT hail!" I'm waiting for my gr-son to call me back to see if he needs gas. I have a dollar off for 35 gallons & my little Encore holds 15, I think, this is only 3rd time I've filled it since new. We park on each side of the pump & pass the dispenser through because you have to purchase the whole 35 gallons at one time. When filling the motorhome it's no problem because it has a 55 gal tank. I buy a lot of gift cards, this month I have $4 to use & I've been eager to run to MO to take advantage of that $140 worth of free gas. With the price of gas going up so fast, it will help.

Jane, I used the jet setting on my hose last week to wash off the spider webs & mud dauber nest behind the shutters & overhang of roof... and since I got water on the windows & went ahead & gave them a wash. Trouble is I have storm windows over the double pane Andersen windows & the water went inside to steam up. When Cas was alive he would get out the ladder & uncrew the storms so I could clean in & out. When the previous owner had the storms put on he allowed them to REMOVE the hinges/elbows so can't open them like that. 'Tis a problem. Finally dried out & I am surprised, didn't streak. When I had all the trim repainted a few years ago the painters took all the storms off to paint so I cleaned windows like crazy. Gave them a bonus for helping me so they could put them back up as soon as the paint dried. Yes, they do need cleaning again but I can still see through... haha...

Think I'd better eat lunch & check with gr-son to see if he needs gas.... So far today all I have accomplished is trimmed my hair & did my shower/hair wash & fed cats twice. The wind just started blowing like crazy but sun is out, better have a look at radar. Such is life in Kansas.

Tip

in Windows 10.
 
If you have a mouse with a wheel on it you can enlarge things by holding the Ctrl key down and spinning the wheel either way to make things bigger or smaller.
If you do not have a mouse wheel, you can hold the Ctrl key down and tap the - or + on the right side of your keyboard, to make things bigger or smaller that way too.

Amy

Good morning..

Beautiful day in the making here..

Picking up some groceries then onto the hardware store for paint.

Managed to get more planting done yesterday but need to do a bit more. I can imagine food prices will be high and anything I can can,freeze or pickle is going to get done from all this planting.

Bubble, thank you for that tip.

Shirley even if you just shook he plant that may help. Fresh vegetables are always the best!

Birds have stopped hollering, must know I am up.. :2funny:

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  it's a beautiful day in Central PA!  It only went to the mid 40s overnight and is supposed to hit the low 70s this afternoon.  And that's what is predicted for the week.  My kind of weather!

Frankie spent the night again last night but she didn't have to be to work until 8 this morning.  She gone and the doggies are all taken care of and snoozing.  And I'm goofing off!  I forgot how busy the mornings can be when we're getting someone off to work!

Dinner is planned and Frankie will stay.  I don't know what her plan is for tonight.  I guess we'll find out.

I'm going to go play my word games and than get busy.  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip So-P.. 

Bigger is always better for me these days!! 
And  Windows 10 is great, IMHO!!

I am so sorry to hear of all the problems you are having (politically speaking)   
Very sad for everyone. 

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.

Not too busy in here today!  I posted at 8:30 this morning, someone els posted around 1 and now here I am again at 10.  Where is everyone?

Frankie picked up Cooper and they went home tonight.  No company!  She's off tomorrow and I think she's planning to sleep in.  I know I am!  I have a ear appt at 1:30 but that gives me the whole morning to get ready!

I'm off to the haystack now and I think I'll sleep well.  I'm suffering from "left over tireds" from getting up so early the last two days and for having to forgo my naps.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one.

Good morning

Going to be a warm one today so will do outside work first after we come back from the lumber yard.
Yesterday was a perfect day of doing nothing after the groceries.

Jane, I managed to sneak in a nap must have caught your zzs as I was down for over an hour. I look forward to these power naps and then I am ready to go again.

Hope we hear from Gloria, Joy, Phyllis and Lloyd today. Lloyd don't be wearing yourself out getting ready for the auction.

Better saddle up and get going. (another one for you Bubble)

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

From almost 9 a.m. to about 3:30 no one was in for coffee, tea or sodas.  The place was so empty it echoed!  I sure hope everyone was out enjoying this lovely day!  It was beautiful in Central PA!!

I got a lot done...including returning my hearing aids to the ear dr.  I just plain can't keep them in!  They're the kind that hook over your ears and then get inserted and they kept popping out!  So she did a form of my ear today and ordered the kind that go right into your ears.  It will be 2 to 3 weeks until I get them.  I think they'll be better because glasses, sunglasses and face maskes and hats and caps won't interfere. 

Now I'm going to collapse.  Frankie came over and cleaned for me today and I'm tired from just keeping out of the way.  With all the clean and the windows all open to let in the fresh air, the house smells as good as the Spring day out there does!  She won't take any pay for doing this so I have to find other ways to help her out.  I pick up things at the grocery store that I know she likes and we had dinner together today (on me).  I think I'll get her a nice gas gift card for her birthday.  It will help her get back and forth to work.  I think she thinks she's paying me for watching Cooper while she works but that not a chore!

I hope your are having a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

My eyes went into slamshut mode while I was watching a movie on TV and I missed the end.  But I've seen it before so that's no big deal!

AMY, I have a recipe that's very similar to that one to make in the oven and I've been gathering the stuff to make it.  There are leftovers from tonight's dinner so it wont' be tomorrow.  I made a lot and Frankie took some home with her and I kept some. 

I put all the cups and glasses in the dishwaher, wiped the counters and the stools, an swept the floor.  I'll leave a night light in case someone else ventures in.  If you do, please clean up after yourself!

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

Good Morning everyone. well  JaneS I hope you got some good rest with your eyes slam shut mood. well I went shopping for parts for fixing the R V . and figured out we can buy brand new Parts cheaper than used one's, am going after them today and see if they will also be reasonable on labor and just have the set the ring and pion up for me. Have a good day see you later,

Lloyd

JaneS

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This is a quickie because we got up later than usual today and we have to be ready for some errands.  I might be able to get an earlier start than usual because it's supposed to be cloudy today. 

I think Mickie has finally accepted DST and has adjusted her "get up" time! 

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

Good morning...

Going to be a great day, starting out at 48° and clear sky.
Need to flip a coin to see if inside or outside work gets done. Maybe outside till the bugs are too bad then inside??

Jane, this does make a lot and we have some for supper tonight and I am going to freeze some. Tasty for sure!

Lloyd, good morning to you and Nancy. Parts sure aren't cheap and I hope you find a good deal on them.

Time to meet the day...

Enjoy your day and stay safe.
