Turn Turn Turn
(Pete Seeger)

To everything turn turn turn there is a season turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to be born a time to die, a time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal, a time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything turn turn turn there is a season turn turn turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven
A time to build up a time to break down, a time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To everything turn turn turn there is a season turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time of love, a time of hate, a time of war a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To everything turn turn turn there is a season turn turn turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose, a time to rend, a time to sew
A time of love, a time of hate, a time of peace, I swear it's not too late

To everything turn turn turn there is a season turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
To everything turn turn turn there is a season turn turn turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

(from the book of Ecclesiastes)

The fly

There I was relaxing, resting my arms above my head,
When I heard this annoying buzzing noise circling the bed.
So I slowly turned, raised my head, and opened one eye,
And sure enough there it was, this most enormous fly.


The damn thing followed me down stairs, and as our lunch we ate,
He took a fancy to what I'd got and kept landing on my plate.
We both kept shooing him away, while from plate to plate he flits.
But all he did was Bzz at us, and made us feel like twits.


His Bzzzing became much louder, as if he was taunting us,
You could almost hear him laughing, as he went from Bzzz to buzz.
Then suddenly, deathly silence ! , it's gone as quiet as a ghost,
It seems our resident spider, has got that fly for his Sunday roast.

Jane, that is not the news anyone wants to hear! First thing that jumped out at me was a  minute ...not a lot of cells and I too  am praying that they got them all.  I know how you are feeling right now, that kind of news is devastating  and to say to you not to worry is not going to happen .Your a fighter ,plus you will be surrounded with prayers so wait till you hear for sure what you are up against then you can worry or not. Praying for good news .

Bubble ,forgot to say thank you for the new start. Loved the poem about the fly! In perfect union beautiful music is played when handled right..

Oh dear, Jane S...not news i was expecting to read at 8.am ( UK ) try not to get yourself down for something that may, or, may not be...i know, easier said than done...

Bubble...i would rather a fly than a spider...

Bubble - Phyllis...thank you for graphics for the new week ahead...

Well i was expecting my 10.am Churches Parish Nurse home visit but, UK are having a petrol shortage or rather lack of petrol deliveries to the pumps, so had to be cancelled as she cant get to her home appointments..

Good morning..

Chilly this morning but not a cold as what Patricia would be ,we are at 37° and have a fire on.

Time to pull all the flowers and the rest of the flower urns put away for another year. This should take up most of the day, have a pot of chicken soup made so lunch that will be. Will worry about supper later.

Patricia, enjoy your day .

Jane, prayers as always also for Bridget that she keeps on getting stronger and stronger each day.

Gloria, the wood fire feels good and all to soon we will have it on all day. I don't know how Jesse knows winter is coming but he now brings a stick of wood in each night!! He was not trained to do this, just does.

Better get a wiggle on..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good moening everyone,  Happy October. The heat is on and it is 41 now but starting to warm up in here. Did not see any frost on the cars though. Mus t sat the hea t feels good this morning. They go t half the parking lot  done yes terday bu t now need  to paint  the lines on it and do the second half. My CNA had a  time finding a place to park yesterday. Lot  of new people and most  have cars so no t many places for visi tors  to park and I know some CNAs call the office and tell  they they can find no place  to park and cannot get in here.

Mike came yesterday with a bag of tomatoes. I did give some  to Fran-CNA and she was surprised I shared them with her.  Tere were more than I could ea t and not going through the work  to freeze them.

This place in the lobby has been decorated for Haloween for 3 weeks already, already tired of seeing it. Today is t he day  we get out flu shots here in the community  room. T his is also the day tha t all heal th care workers who did not  bet the covid sho ts are no longer working-all fired for not getting the shots. Nu rses in hospitals who worked through the firs t bad out break and now told not to return to work unless they ge t the vacines and they do not  want  them and have no choice.

JANE  my prayers being said for you as soon as I read your post form last night. I had a similar  thing happen to me when I was 33 but every thing went  good and here I still am at 90. God watch over you.

BUBBLE  great graphics again and I no tice one from Phyllis again. From habit I check watermarks/names. Had a with The Fly, good ending.  Thanks for  today's goodies.

AMY  i t does no good to worry because we cannot change anything but God can.

JACKIE  sorry your nurse appoint ment was cancelled. Glad I s till ge t a CNA here, too many  things I cannot do anymore.

Have a good day and be safe.

Lloyd, tell Nancy we would love to hear from her. She knows Jane and I have already talked with Nancy. Everyone will help Nancy out  but I think she will be fine.

Well lost that post so will try again. I'm in MO today for a class luncheon. Was not sure I'd get here because everything that could go wrong did. Got me a new iPad Pro & on daughter's "mobile" system (however that works). I can text & do this but not talk, had hoped it would replace cell phone since this has a regular key pad~~

Jane, I'm stunned with your news and while will pray they got it all after all tests are done, maybe do like me and ignore the truth & believe our bodies will heal it's self if we give it a chance. My theory is that my body heals faster as long as I stay happy, get enough sleep & food and again, think happy & be tough. My prayers are with you and you gotta know, heart & stomach in my throat at the moment.

Lloyd, tell Nancy that I said, "if I can manage getting around in here I'm sure she will have no trouble". I'm sure we will all enjoy her views on the crazy talk we do in here~~

I already lost the first message so better shut up & post. I'll be home either later today or tomorrow, for sure. It is less than 300 miles but that wind yesterday & the rain made it a rough drive. Cracked a rib the night before so driving is a little bit of a pain but not nearly as painful as climbing onto that king size bed with the extra memory foam on top... and having 2 cats scrunched up beside me when I try to turn over. You know how ribs do, hurts worse today than the day I did it but know this lasts for 6 weeks. I'm tired of it already. Something else to whine about. ::)

Uh Oh.... Just realize I don't know how to do the bigger & color on the iPad. I will experiment later, posting as it for now!

Okay, I can do this way..getting smarter & even tried a quick edit

Not sure I should try to follow Shirley  ;D  but wanted to say  :hello:  to the nice new page that Bubble has given us.

Shirley "sent" the pouring rain to me yesterday morning - just as Son and I were leaving for my medical appointment. Fortunately, it had slowed to a sprinkle by the time we left the doctor's office so we stopped to pick up lunch and come back.
Then he rehung pictures that he had taken down before the new roof work and put objects back on the shelf over the kitchen cabinets.  He didn't do the greenery around them - saying he'd leave that to "the girls".  So now I need to find a time that Miss Emily and her Mom can come over to help.  Emily is tall enough to reach the area by standing on a step stool. Her Mom and I are not but we can supervise.  (I suspect her Dad would prefer we NOT supervise him  ;) )

Jane, prayers and good thoughts for encouraging news about your situation - and also for Bridget's continuing recovery.

I had finally put out my Fall decor  (such as it is) and now need to switch the September scarecrows for the October witches and ghosts.  Also need to catch up on laundry.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Good morning from an Interior at a cool 29 degrees at 9:33 AM. I've been busy with fall paperwork, most routine yearly busywork. Insurance, a possible rent increase, and some political info for the election here on the fifth, among others.

Jane, I was glad to hear of Bridget's good news but saddened to hear of your bad news. Cancer seems to be a given for all of us anymore, but it sounds as if they were in time and were able to eradicate it. I'm staying positive for you. Amy said it better than I could in her post.

Gloria, I don't know why they waited so late to do outside repairs in our complexes. Perhaps having to deal with the hired companys' previous schedules? I suppose we have to grit our teeth and deal with it.

Gloria...i dont follow our news any more, too depressing but, what i gather ( the lack of car filling petrol ) is the usual, " panic buying "
My church community nurse has made her next home visiting appointment for same time, same day, next week....

Ha ha SHIRLEY yes you are getting smarter....so that is happy dog keeping calm whilst singing and clapping, clever dog.....

Patricia, good to see you..29° is brr chilly. I was talking with Jane,  and not wanting to leave as I told her my next job was wash the van. The job is now done, wiped dry and put away...for now...or until the next rain.

One of my favorite songs coming from the back bedroom occupied by my oldest daughter when she was a young teenager. 

Hello Everyfriend and thanks for the words of confidence.  They helped!  It's nice to know when you have "backup".  I've decided not to dwell on the thoughts and to wait for the final outcome.  It doesn't hurt any more except when I yawn so I'll just ignore it for now.  I do appreciated the prayers.

I'm off to the haystack now.  Frankie is spending the night and she's not ready to conk out so I'll leave her to her own devices.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

67Good Morning everyone. Is 67º at 5:55 AN. this Morning, I had a good sleep, see you all Later.

Lloyd

Amy

Good morning...

We had a rain overnight..sure...I wash the van and on comes the rain!

Friends stopping by to pick up two angel wing plants, one for them and one for the granddaughter that they are going to see today.

Household chores (do they ever stop?) Laundry, hope it can be hung out later.

Jane and Phyllis, I did honey garlic  sausages in the air fryer last night, this will be the way to do them from now on. They were delicious!

Patricia, love the song and now I am listening to the rest of songs......along with the sounds of geese honking outside! We will likely get snow this month as we have in the past.

Shirley, hope the rib is a bit better. Takes a while for it to heal ,every move hurts and coughing or sneezing is murder!!

Lloyd, good morning to you. Enjoy your day and say hello to Nancy please.

Best get a move on.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.
