Good Monday morning, Everyfriend.  There's assorted mini muffins to accompany your coffee or tea . I wish everyone a nice day!!

 

 

:smitten:

 

 

CHUCKLES

 

Missing Parrot
 

There once was a lady who was very concerned about her missing parrot. Not knowing what to do, she called 911. "You gotta help me find my parrot!"
 
The operator patiently replied, "We can't help you with that, ma'am. This number only deals with emergencies." But the lady persisted, and then the operator told her not to be concerned, that the parrot should fly back in a few days.
 
Then, out of desperation, the lady begged, "But you don't understand! The only thing he says is "Here, kitty, kitty!!!"
 



Food For Thought

 
Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
Matthew 25:13

A while back I was painfully reminded of Jesus' urging to keep watch. While I was driving to a meeting, someone speeding along from the other direction ran a red light and crashed into my car, totaling it and giving me my first ride ever in an ambulance. Thankfully I was not seriously injured, and I was released from the hospital after only four hours.

This made me think about how our life here on earth can end in a split second. As James puts it, our lives are like "a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes" (James 4:14). And we don't know the day or the hour when the Lord will return or when our life on earth will end.

Unlike the five wise virgins in Jesus' parable, the five foolish virgins did not feel the need to be prepared. They discovered too late that they would need to go and get extra oil for their lamps, and when they came back to the banquet hall, the groom had arrived and the door was shut. No matter how much they pleaded, the answer was "I don't know you."

The day will come when each of us will have to leave this life. Someday we too will meet the bridegroom, the Lord Jesus. Then all that will matter is whether we have been prepared by believing in him and by serving him here on earth. And if we are prepared, like the five wise virgins, we too will be able to go in with him to the wedding banquet.

Lord Jesus, help us to be prepared when you call us home or when you return.
In your name, Amen.

 

Thought of the Day


"The things that make us happiest are usually right in front of our faces, but we stop noticing those things after a while.  Today is a great day to start noticing again."

Good morning Everyfriend!  What a special day this is!  Joanie did her USUAL morning posting and it's wonderful to see it.  I'm glad I came in for a minute this morning! 

I was going to pass the computer completely because I'm still getting ready for my "Mother's Day Gift Cleaning Lady".  I have to get a shower and get dressed yet and put the bedspread back on the bed and take some stuff off dressers and pick up dog toys and.....whatever I notice that I forgot about.

I knew you all would pray for Courtney but I think I needed the assurance of hearing it.  Thank you.  And, SHIRLEY, I'll pray for your grandson to find his perfect fit also.  I'd do it by name if I knew his name.  I guess God know who "Shirley's grandson who's looking for a job" is!

Back to "uncluttering" for me.  I've decided not to have her do the office except for the floor and I'll work on the clutter in here while she does the rest of the house.

Enjoy your day!  You too, Smoky!  You're one lucky cat!

Good morning, Amy.I won't be able to post "stuff" every day for a while because there is so much going on with Home Health Care, doctor's appointments and getting ready to move.  I am glad to read your husband is nearing the end of his chemo.

Janie--Good morning.  How great that you were gifted with a cleaning lady!!  I'll be praying for Courtney and Shirley's grandson and all of you.

Thanks and Good morning, Lloyd.

Hooray - Joan's back, or at least when she can be back.  It's nice to read our morning greetings.

I think my time thing below is out of kilter.  It says it is 2:25 and my clock says it is 7:35.  I know the minutes aren't exact, but the hour should be correct.  It doesn't make any difference if it can't be fixed; I just happened to notice it.

Good Morning Everyone!

Joanie is back, Joanie is back, all is right with the world.  Joanie please take it slow and easy, sounds like you have a full plate so you don't need to rush things, we are just happy to see you posting, when you can.

Yesterday was a good day, the kids from Del Rio showed up at my other daughters house to join us for a meal and to help celebrate Mothers Day.  They didn't stay very long but what a great surprise.

I have an early (8:30) appointment so I am already washed and combed just waiting for some coffee, will try to leave by 8.  My wife also has an appointment with a rheumatologist about her feet and a hand.  They have been giving her a lot of problems, oldest daughter is going with her.

I hope that we get some rain this week like they are promising.....

C U later.

Joanie is back and the Soda Shoppe is on the way back to what it should be.  Take your time getting it all straightened out, Joan.  We can wait another one or two days...   :2funny:   

Seriously, we have missed you and there's no way I could possibly do the job you do with the SS.  But don't try to overdo - we'll willingly wait while you regain your strength and handle all the other things that need doing rather than have you back in the hospital!

Thank you all for the prayers and support for Shirley's gr-son, Evan.  He is the one I posted a photo of when he graduated and he hopes to get a few days to come to Colorado to camp with Grammy & Dad & Uncle Pete.  We all know this may be the last year for camping for Grammy, in the high country.  I held up better last year than I expected but warned the boys I do enjoy sleeping while they go for a hike.   ;)  When I go out by myself I spend a lot of time just "chilling out", eating & watching the critters.  It is so neat to take up with 15-20 deer mulling about the RV, cats were impressed!  The kids don't want to have me cooking in the RV except for breakfast, they like to cook over an open fire.  I do go on about my life in the woods, sorry........ :-[

Joan, it really was nice to see your face & post right off this morning.  As much as we enjoy and missed your "tid-bits", we are happy to just see your smiling face with a word or two.... right? everyone?  Got to tell you it was a giggle about the parrot.... right along with watching these crazy blackbirds that are walking the grass carpet around the pool, searching for bugs for their babies.... with 4 cats laying around watching them.  I got out old "hootie-owl" with the bobble head so no birds this morning.  Okay, I notice you said, "getting ready to move".... what does that mean? 

I'm thinking of ordering another hootie owl for the other end of the pool to keep the birds completely away when we paint.  Every time we have painted the pool over the last 30 years it happens to be mulberry time.   :knuppel2:   The mulberry trees pop up any little patch of ground that doesn't get mowed.... so "picture it".............  One tree near the entrance of our area keeps the sidewalk completely covered with purple berries, can't imagine why they don't cut it down.  Those birds love the berries but will eliminate them on top of the RV or any other place where it shows best.  My son helped me chop off some in the berm & we put that stuff on that goes down to kill the roots... absolutely gone now.  We cut them about shoulder high to me so the dogs next door couldn't reach through the wrought iron fence & accidentally chew or eat the poison.  The stumps just lifted out after they were dead.  I do avoid all pesticides & stuff that will pass on to bugs that are fed to baby birds .... we watched some young robins slowly die one year after a neighbor's yard was sprayed. Not supposed to happen, but it does.   

Best wishes for your wife, Hal, for relief for her hands & feet.  I have been preaching to my kids about taking care of their bodies if they expect their bodies to hold up for these "golden years".  Sadly some things we don't have any control over, but better do what we can.  My kids were born in '56, '60 & '63 so at the age a heart attack or stroke is possible, and the same age that all are trying to prepare for "the rest of their lives".  2 of the 3 are retired with big decisions to make and realizing they can't dictate everything.  I do understand how you felt when the last kids showed up for the day.  One year we sat down to Thanksgiving dinner (always noon for us).... looked at each other, put the turkey back in the roaster, packed overnight bags for everyone & "headed home".  We got there just as all were ready to eat, evening was the big dinner for the whole family.  We pooled what we brought & Mom had tears running down her cheeks to have all together. Dad just kept grinning.  It is those perfect moments that we remember when so many are missing.  My mother always said that, "if you enjoyed life growing up you don't owe US, just pass it on down to your kids".   

On with the day, supposed to get to 90s and that is not my favorite weather.  I checked & had neglected to turn the 'frig & freezer on in the RV so will have to wait until evening to make the fruit ice to freeze.  My freezer & the one in the 'frig are both full to overflowing & I got a big bag of oranges & bunch of bananas yesterday.  Everyone down to the youngest great grands loves fruit ice but nobody is willing to make it.  Not that much trouble, squeeze oranges & mash equal number of bananas..... stir in enough sugar to absorb the liquid (I like it SWEET), add water to make it as icy or fruity as wanted.  Have to stir a couple times as it freezes so the fruit doesn't all settle to the bottom.  Good & good for you!!!  I have some little stem milk glass sherbet dishes that are perfect to serve in.  I got them out of the cabinet to get rid of (set of 18) but gr-daughter thought they'd be cute to use for Hadley's 4th birthday party so the kids could have a scoop of ice cream & decorate their own ice cream sunday....  I will use & save them for her.

Have a great day, Every Friend! 

Sandy, I've gotten used to no capitals with the kids texting.... & do it myself when in a hurry.  I only text when I want to send a photo with my phone... when I am out of town.  You are quite a trooper!

Thank you Everyfriend for the welcome back.  Like I said many things going on with Home Health and my regular doctors.  I will be moving to Fairhope, AL (where Linda, Ed, Joe, Kate and Finlay live.  Big job sorting out what to take and what to leave behind.

Hi everyone.  We have another beautiful morning and headed up to 90 this afternoon.  I didn't make it back in to post yesterday afternoon but read all the postings up to mid-afternoon and decided I couldn't add much to the conversation that hadn't already been commented on so I took a day off from posting other than the brief morning message.

I did go to Sunday School and Church but spent the rest of the day resting.  We had some ham and a couple of vegetable items in the refrigerator so didn't buy our Sunday dinner to bring home as I usually do.  I enjoyed listening to most of Don's Classical Music program and then watched the remained of the Player's Championship golf match.  A young 21 year old Korean fellow won.  What a difficult course as there was water everywhere including one small green that is basically surrounded by water.  It was amazing to watch these pros hit the water.  They were also fighting the wind, which made the course even more difficult.

I have done a few household chores, including fixing Pat's breakfast, and now am exhausted.  So I think I will pass up my Monday noon meeting and just rest the remainder of the day.  Pat is meeting a lady at the church and will go with her to the Spring luncheon for the Circle she belongs to.  This is the final meeting until September.  I am not going to attend the Men's meeting and dinner tonight. 

When we ate at the Chop House Restaurant on Saturday we were treated rudely by the hostess and they couldn't find the reservations I had made.  Yesterday my Granddaughter emailed the manager of the restaurant to let him know of our experience.  He called her and said she wasn't the only one to complain about the problem on Saturday.  He said this was not acceptable and is sending her a certificate for a complimentary meal for the four of us. This has turned a negative into a positive and certainly wasn't expected but will be appreciated as this is a pretty expensive place to eat.

Joan, it was a special day to see that you are not out of rehab and back in your home.  What a pleasant surprise to see your posting this morning.  It sounds like you are going to be quite busy for a while. 

Mary Ann, did you enjoy the golf match.  You would really have to know what you were doing to play that course. 

deAngel, sure hope you computer isn't attached by he virus.  I don't consider stating how one is feeling or commenting about an illness is complaining as it is just a reality of many of our lives and the focus of much of our attention and time.  Would you have liked to play golf on that course where the tournament was held?  There must be something genetic built into us to straighten up before the cleaning person(s) come.  I do that in my office, by my bed and my easy chair. 

Carol, sure hope you don't call that number as it is most likely a scam or something worse.  What a setting your had yesterday to enjoy being with most of your family. 

Callie, what a nice Mother's Day gift.  I noticed our attendance at Church yesterday was up quite a bit and you could tell family members were their with their mothers.  I hope you enjoy the sound bar as it should improve the quality of the sound.  I notice the sounds that are annoying to me when played from the TV sound system as not nearly as annoying when listening with my wireless headphones.  That sprinkler system sounds wonderful and will help you enjoy your flowers. 

Shirley, your family get tethers sound like so much fun. However, nice you can have your own quiet space in your motor home.

Jane, I bet Courtney will be on pins and needles until the interview and then for a while afterwards as there always seems to be a delay before a final decision is made.

Jenny, wow, your Austin family hasn't been down there very long.  I know you will be so happy to have them back in Colorado.  Congratulations to your son who announced his engagement.  Does his intended like to play golf?  Unfortunately our granddaughter's boyfriend didn't show and she was really upset.  It sort of put a downer on the big dinner out as she was letting that bother her so much.  However, we all enjoyed the food.  They had several very large parties dining at the same time including a big table full of black ladies who were quite noisy but obviously enjoying themselves.  It got a lot quieter when they finished and left shortly before we finished our meal.   

Amy, this is going to be a red letter week for you and your husband when he has the last chemo.  Nice of you to thank the staff with the fruit tray.

Sandy, capitalization isn't needed and I certainly agree it would make typing much easier to avoid it.  After all the poet E. E. Cummings didn't think it was needed.

Shirley and Sandy, I can read lower case letters as well as upper case, so keep those messages coming, regardless of "case".  I am a "printer's devil" and can read backward and upside down too.  Shirley your camping adventures are always so interesting.  I camped with my Sunday School class when young, but "them days is gone forever"!

Joan, it is so good to see posts from you and I am happy you are going to go to Fairhope AL to be where your family is.  I'll bet they're happy too.  There, they can keep an eye on you, but also see you much more often and you'll be more of a part of their lives, especially Findlay's.

Good morning everyone, still raining and I did not have to look out to know it. Saw on the weather report we have had close to 5 inches of rain this month, normal is near an inch and a half for the whole month.

JANE  I pray that Courtney gets the job she wants.  That would make her life happy and everyone deserves to be happy in their life's work.

JENNY  rain has not stopped yet. Still raining but not as much. Thursday is to be a summer day up in the 80's.

MARY ANN  I had 2 sisters that married brothers.

SHIRLEY  my grandson was hired as an intern when he was in his last year of college. He is still with that company, all about computers and setting them up for companies. Now he mostly works from home now. To bad you grandson didn't get into a company like that.

JOAN  how wonderful to see you this morning and having breakfast with you.Do you have any idea how much you have been missed and not for your morning posts either? Love your Food for Thought. That is too true. Good quote. Thank you for all today's goodies and most or all I thank God for you being back with us.

JANE  enjoy the gift of the cleaning lady today.

JOAN  I know you and your family will all feel better living closer. Let them do the work.

Going tp gp lay down again. Hope this rain stops.

No, I did not call that number when the computer voice took over and demanded that I call right away.  No messages today.  We had a really fun gathering with all but one son & wife yesterday.  The weather was perfect and we could see Pike's Peak from their home (which is a 12 minute drive from us). 

Callie:  Nice tribute from your children - they know what you really need when they come over to fix things. 

Shirley - my notes on what you wrote don't make sense.   :D  I wish you the best when you go to the mountains - know you love it!

Jane S:  I am mainly a silent prayer person but do send my prayers for Courtney and all those seeking good jobs. 

Jenny:  WOW - such surprises you have and that is frosting on the cake when son returns home. 

Mary Ann:  This laptop has good safety on it but still that written and voice came through.  And, this is updated all the time - it just shows how vulnerable we can be in our electronics. 

Joan:  Your family loves you and they will find a wonderful place near them.  Glad you are back.

Sandy:  I hope you are not having pain with your hand or at least being able to control the pain.  Our friends hand and elbow is much better with her therapy - still miles from driving or using that hand.  Wishing you a complete recovery. 

Don is out the door and I don't have to go with him to the VA this morning.  He has an appointment for something we don't even know.  I made crock pot steel oatmeal overnight and added dried cranberries and some dried pineapple pieces.  It is very filling and good.  Last night, I heard a noise and got up and checked all through the house - nothing was found.  Then, I slept in late.

A good Monday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND.

My heart is VERY happy, seeing your morning offering, JOAN.  You have been missed, and not just because we missed the goodies you always have for us each day either. I am pleased that you are going to move to Fairhope to be near the family.  Take care dear friend and try to not overdo as you prepare for your move.  HUGS.

SHIRLEY, I agree with you in that we never expected all the goings on in our lives at this stage, but isn't it wonderful?   I always love to read about what you are doing, even though i am a bit overwhelmed at what all you do each day.  Congrats to Grandson Evan with the Bio-med Engineering degree.  That is the degree my Dr. Dave got as well.  I certainly will keep him in my prayers as well that he can get the job with benefits that he deserves.  How nice that he may get to join you all in Colorado...

CAROL, your Mother's Day gathering sounded delightful.  As you well know, we are extremely happy that our Austin Family will return home.  They both are CO natives and have that desire in them to once again live in their beloved state.  We never thought there would be a chance of them returning, due to job situation.  So as we say, you just never know what is around the next corner. 

LARRY, I am sorry to read that the Saturday Night dinner did not go smoothly.  Good for the manager to make it right.  Austin DIL is the main bread winner for the family, and she is in a career field that will more than likely continue to take her to new levels.  They have been in Austin just over three years.  Same with the time in London and then back here in Denver...all about that 2 to 3 year time frame. Mark's Fiancé does enjoy golf, and has learned to love it more, of course.  They both love to hike, camp, etc. and do seem to enjoy the same things.  As you can imagine, if she did not care for golf, there would be no hope for a relationship!  😘  Funny enough, they met at a golf course where they both worked....she was the golf cart gal that drove the course serving the golfers food and drink.  She did this in the summer while getting her nursing degree. 

JEANEE LEE, I 💗💗'd your HOORAY welcome back to Our Joan!  Very special and exemplifies just how we ALL feel.  Thank you.

JANE, I hope your gift of a house cleaner turns out to be wonderful.  I am getting to the point that I think need someone to come in and clean my house real good so I can start fresh.  I just do not have the energy to do it as good as I used to, and it is showing. 

GLORIA de, I am sure happy that your neighbors take good care of you.  Bless them.

I must get busy...the day is moving on quickly and I better catch up! 

Worried that there is no post from you,  JUNE....  I do hope you are OK and will be in soon. 

Enjoy your Monday.

Jenny

Larry, what kind/brand of wireless headphones do you have for listening to the tv and where did you get them?
I really think I'd prefer something like that.  This sound bar isn't helping that much.

Handyman was just here to advise about hollow sounds from some of the kitchen tiles.  His diagnosis:  earthquake tremors have probably loosened them.  Recommendation:  replace all of them!
They are the original builder-installed and I trust this handyman's opinion.  His estimate is "reasonably" high.  The biggest issue is the HUGE mess - and the fact that I won't be able to get to my bedroom for 72 hours while the tiles set.  Guess I can move into the guest bedroom - more "mess"! <sigh>.

Neat thing is that he will build me a cabinet to put on the patio for potting plants, storing hand garden tools, potting soil, etc.   Neither dil nor I could find anything on line that suited what I want.  This one will be "custom made".  He uses left-over materials from other projects to do this sort of thing.

Lunch time - and time to see what kind of weather we can expect later on.  Sounds ominous for the next few days.

My dearest Bis ! Welcome home !!!!!!!! Food for thought is something we should be prepared for each and every day. We never know when we will be the one next in line.

Joan we will be happy to give you all the time you need. Just knowing you are well enough to be at home is the best gift of all. Are you planning to move ?

Jane and Shirley, prayers have been said. All needs are now in God's Hands.

Sandy, you do so well with just your left hand to use in typing. You are wise to recognize the simplicity of NO CAPS…it will make typing so much simpler and we can expect to see you more frequently. I'm sure your beloved daughter is keeping all that you need, supplied. You are Blessed.

Bis, Now that I am settled in for over a year at Rowntree, I still wish I had taken "this or that" with me, but I didn't, so I tell myself, "buy a new one",or "live with the memory". When I left Hemet, I was not well,and knew it, so my mistakes made  then, I don't blame myself for now. Having God and close family available is the best gift of all.

Time change from night clothes to day clothes. I am slower and more slovenly every day. Ain't Life Great ?????? I love it.

June, I guess that's me too..."slower and more slovenly".  PJ's just feel better!

This cleaning gal has found a whole lot of clean that I never knew was there.  With my diminishing eyesight, even I can see the clean shining out.  She's running out of time so she's coming back next Monday to finish up the rooms that didn't get the DEEP works and give the rest of it the once over.  This was the best Mother's Day gift imaginable.

I went in and asked her if she knows that it's against the law to work someone more than 4 hours without a break.  She said, "When I'm on a roll, I make my own rules."  And BOY is she ever on a roll!

Janie, Is this a one shot deal with the housekeeper, or will she be a regular. If not a regular, I hope she will be available to you by phone in case you want to hire her for future work? She sounds like a "winner", with a good personal attitude.

Now that our Bis is home again, I will have to admit to today's work program... I have two boxes of ensure, and two different flavors, so I got down on a stack of pillows on the floor and lined up the flavors side by side, and it was work....just getting down and up from the floor. But it was an accomplishment, in my opinion.

So many have been in and out of my house today assessing my various health needs.  I understand this will go on for nearly a month.  Sorry I haven't been here very much.

Joan, I have no doubt your world is still upside down.  Won't peace & quiet feel good?  I am so glad you are moving near your kids & know it will be much more fun to have them pop in & out or you do the going.... will you still be able to drive?  So many options now driving is not as necessary as it used to be.  You've come a long way, Babe!!!

JUNE, today was gift from my daughter but Tammy and I have agreed on a schedule.  There were two rooms that she didn't get to with the deep cleaning so she's coming back next Monday and do them and give the rest of the house a once over.  After that, she'll do once a month just regular cleaning and once a month heavy stuff and any odd things like cleaning cupboards. 

Now I have a question for you.  Why did you have to line up your Ensure on the floor?

Joanie, just sit back and enjoy all the attention.  It's probably way past your turn!  Just pop in now and then and say "hello". 

Kiran's here so I'm going to go play!

So happy to read about your time with Tammy there and how well it went for you, JANE.  A special hello to Kiran...enjoy your time with her. 

Happy to see your posts, JUNE...I was rather worried about you!  Glad you are doing OK, girl! 

SHIRLEY, "world upside down" sure sums it up for Our Bis! 

CALLIE, I have heard those hollow sounds on tile before....if it is only the sound that is wrong, are you sure you want to go through this mess right now?

Dr. Dave and Family came over yesterday to meet our new kitty and it went very well....Smokey was not one bit afraid and they all played with him and had a great time.  I felt he would be fine, as he came from a family with children....but one never knows. 

Have a good evening.

Jenny

Jenny,  a contractor I've used before came to check the tiles. He's totally trustworthy and I could see there was a problem. 
These are the originals that the builder put in and it's possible that the old glue is wearing off.  Definitely time to Do Something About It.  His estimate wasn't really that bad and I know the work will be done correctly and without delay once it starts.
He told me what will be involved and it won't take more than about 4 days, part of which will be waiting for the tiles to set.  That's the only time I won't be able to use the kitchen.  I can handle that!!!!!  :thumbup:

That girl worked so hard and got so much done today that I'm totally exhausted!  You'd think I'd done it all myself!

I'm going to go off to bed early so I'll bid you all Good Night and may God bless and keep you through the night and may you wake to the sunshine of His love.

Callie, I have two pair of these headphones, my wife and I both use them at times.  They are stereo and have great sound quality and you can go in the kitchen or another room and still listen to the program, even outside to mail box...LOL

Well I went to my Primary care doctor today and he found a new ailment for me.  I am now officially anemic.  I have to go back tomorrow for more blood work.  Cant think of much more than can find wrong with me.  But guess it is still up to the good Lord what happens next. Sorry I am not in a very good mood.  So I am going to bed and call it a day.

God bless to all, nite, nite....
