LOTS OF LETTERS

Mike walked into a post office just before Valentine's day, he couldn't help noticing a middle-aged, balding man standing in a corner sticking "Love" stamps on bright pink envelopes with hearts all over them.  Then the man got out a bottle of Channel perfume from his pocket and started spraying scent over the envelopes.

By now Mike's curiosity had got the better of him, and so I asked the man why he was sending all those cards.  The man replied, "I'm sending out 500 Valentine cards signed, 'Guess who?'"

"But why?" asked Mike.

"I'm a divorce lawyer," the man replied.

Dreaming of Gifts

One morning Emma woke up with a start.  Her husband Jim asked what was the matter, she told him, "I just had a dream that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's day. What do you think it means?"

"You'll know tonight," Jim said.

That evening, Jim home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, Emma opened it - only to find a book entitled "The meaning of dreams”.

Good morning everyone..

Wow ,it is melting out ,water dripping off the eaves of the house here. Temp is 30° F . We are off to the city this morning for a CT scan for hubby..neighbour is looking after the girls for us.

Shirley, your post brought back memories to me. When I was 3-4 my Mom and I went to visit my aunt and she had an outhouse. Apparently, I had gone to use it when they heard a terrible scream from me, both of them raced  thinking that I had fallen in only to fine me pointing at a huge spider!!  Latter on when I was married we had an out house, a two seater....great for when you are pregnant and had morning sickness :)

Bubble , love the tree of happiness and the jokes too!! Thank you for the morning smiles.

Jane, hope both your doggies enjoyed their home spa yesterday.

Better shake a leg here..

Enjoy your day everyone..

Amy, at 6:30 am, our temperature is close to yours - 28 degrees F.  Radar does not show any kind of precip for today.

Bubble, I used to cross stitch genealogy samplers and I know I have one close to what you posted this morning.  I no longer do counted cross stitch - arthritis and computing get in the way.

I had the first of PT sessions for my arthritic shoulder with instructions for home practice, which will start today.

Amy, now you too brought back a childhood memory.

I must have been about your age then. The toilet then had a big water tank near the ceiling and there was a chain to pull so as to flush. I would not have reached if I was on the floor, so I used to do it while still sitting. I had not seen there was a huge cockroach on that chain and when I reached to pull, it crawled on my arm.
I too screamed!
My hatred of cockroaches dates from that event.


P.S. Good morning Mary Ann. I also stopped with the counted cross stitch: my eyes are not what they were!

Good morning Everyfriend!  our temp is up to 47º this morning and it's been raining off and on most of yesterday, overnight and will continue today.  I'll be off to Wally World at 10 and then my friend and I are going to dinner at Appleby's this evening.

My outhouse scare was engineered by humans.  It was at my grandparents farm and my older sister and my cousin let me go by myself and then scared me half to death while I was in there in the dark.  But it all turned out OK. The two boy cousins who lived there, saw what happened and they took me back to the barn with them to sleep in the hay loft.  That sure taught me that the only boogy men on the farm were my sister and my cousin.  And I got to do something that Margie never did because on that farm, only boys slept in the barn!

The fur girls loved their spa day at home!  Ashley said she thought they were calmer at home than at the shop and I think so too.  It went well enough that we're doing the same thing next grooming time. 

Love the new space Bubble and all the goodies included.  Thank you!

We're waiting for the boinger right now for the doggies pills and then I'll be off and running.  Make today your best ever!

Good morning everyone, Had a great day out with my son and got every thing I wanted ion the stores but wow I was worn out when I got home. Was in bed by 8pm and asleep maybe 5 minutes later. Woke up before 4 am. Now I am ready for a nap. Already up to 46° and raining.

SHIRLEY  wonder ig I like the thorns more than the roses. Cacti fascinate me with all the thorns and the beautiful flowers they have. The Saguaro cactus is amazing how old they can get and how tall they can grow.

JUNE  triple E is a very wide foot and that is what my older son wears.

BUBBLE  love your new graphic.

This is it for now, cannot keep my eyes open. Have a good day.

Bubble, our old church was built in 1900 and had a toilet like you described.  Fortunately I did not reach out to a cockroach.  I don't recall using it often and I was short so I wonder if I was able to reach the cord.  Maybe ours was longer than yours.  My "bugaboo" is revolving doors.  When I was about three, my dad and I were in a store downtown and I think it was a Walgreen store but when I was in my section a man got in the next one and pushed the door and I fell down in the door.  I remember my dad picking me up and holding me and the man was very apologetic; he had not noticed me.  If given a choice, even today, I choose anything other than a revolving door.  I can use the revolving door, I'd just as soon not.

Jane, I never lived in a house with an outhouse, but two of our neighbors had them.  When I played with the girls in one of the houses, I used their outhouse if necessary.  When they wanted to put a bathroom in their basement, the city said 'no' so the people said, 'ok, we'll keep the outhouse'; the city relented.  Later the people remodeled their kitchen and extended it so they could add a bath upstairs. 

Gloria, I like the cactus blossoms too.  Having been out west and seen them in bloom, I know what you mean.  I also came in contact with a cactus full of thorns and I did not like that!

Lloyd, I think we're going to be cooler today, too, but no snow - fortunately.

Hi Everyone.  We are looking forward to our second 80 degree day in a row.  It is suppose to stay cloudy all day, howver the sun just popped out for a few seconds.  I have nothing planned for today as was pretty busy yesterday morning.  I did get all of the items on my list attended to although wasn't able to get the Columbarium matter settled as the Church office didn't have the needed paperwork.  I got the name and telephone number of the lady who is handling this and called but haven't heard back from her yet.  Today will basically be a day of rest.

Shirley, I have always been thankful for my upbringing on the farm, although I was really glad to get away from it when I graduated from college and struck out on my own.  It made me decide to make my living with my mind and not my back, which I was able to do.  However, it taught me a great work ethic and my parents taught me good values.    Glad you got your car washed.  I remember how dirty our cars used to get on the farm and even in the Kansas City and other areas where they had to use salt and sand for icy and snowy roads.  That is not a problem here where I now live.  My day yesterday was a busy as I want although I certainly didn't do anything requiring much labor.  It was just driving and getting in an out of the car several times.  I was glad to get back home and have a quiet afternoon and evening.  As I told deAngel, I wish I could share the ice cream cake with you all. 

Sandy, thanks for the added explanation on the outhouse situation as that makes a lot more sense to me.  Not long ago I drove by a house that had an antique outhouse sitting in the front yard as a decoration.  I thought to myself they must not have lived where they needed to have one.  It was not attractive as a yard ornament. 

June, glad your kids got back from Hawaii safely. Nice that you have a good place to walk inside when you can't get outside although your gardens there sound very enticing for walking. 

Bubble, is that a picture of something you cross-stitched in the graphic you shared for this week?  I got a chuckle out of the jokes you shared.  Thanks for getting us started anew.  I wonder if anyone likes cockroaches? 

Lloyd, I remember when I lived in Missouri as I was growing up and then another stint of 9 years that we always said if you don't like the weather right now just wait as it may change before the day is over.  I hope you enjoy your day as a couch jockey. 

Jane, we haven't been to Appleby's since we moved here but ate at one fairly often before we moved from Georgia.  They always had good food.  We also haven't been to an O'Charley's since moving here.

Gloria, nice to see that your shopping trip was a big success and hope you can rest up today. 

Amy, you go from extreme cold to thawing weather in a short period of time.  I hope you have a good trip to the city and don't have to wait too long for the CT scan for your hubby.

No Larry, I did not cross stitch this one.  I did mostly  scenery or animals. My favorite works were teddy bear borders for toddlers sheets or on baby bibs.

The only thing that stands out in my memory of outhouses is the trek from the house in a snowstorm. Snow always made its way through the cracks in the door, and if you never had to  scrape snow off the seat before using you missed one of life's most exhilarating experiences.

Bubble, when we lived in England we signed a lease for a year on a house in High Wycombe.... was a "row house" with the front sitting on the sidewalk.  Every few houses was an arch passage into the back.... with a sidewalk along the whole block of houses.  Back yards were special, some people had gorgeous flowers, we had a clothes line that thrilled me..to not have 3 flights of steps to haul wet diapers down.  When we looked at the house we saw it had a fairly large bathroom upstairs and the agent was busy explaining how to open a door in the fireplace to expose pipes that would heat the water for a bath.  We didn't notice until we moved in that the bathroom lacked an important item... a toilet!  They were out back, that little shed that held a copper boiler for doing laundry (all I understood when the agent explained) had a toilet with the pull chain for the "water storage". The "outhouses" were one building for every 2 houses, not insulated or wall board, separate but a common wall between.  You adjust to anything.  ::)

And, Don, even though we put a round kerosene heater out there, it was freezing cold, I have the burns on my leg from that heater being too close!  During the summer months the little girl next door would sing all the nursery rhymes she knew.  One summer we had only 6 days of not having a fire in the fireplace of the room we "lived" in. Bedrooms & bath upstairs didn't have ANY heat.... good training for going camping.  :2funny:

I'm going to bed.  Been a lousy day of trying to get a job done & seems nobody wants to work anymore.  A panel in the fence around the pool broke out last night & I woke up to 2 large feral cats looking in the sliding door at me.  Got to get it fixed soon, only critters that can get through the wrought iron fence around the yard can get near the house, but that pool fence tends to slow down the skunks & raccoons & opossums.  The fox can get through the wrought iron but don't think the coyote can. Cas used to trap the small critters & when he'd take the trap outside into the grass & let them loose we thought it scared them & didn't come back. 

I've checked at least half a dozen places/people & none are in any hurry to work.... I knew I'd have to replace those panels this year, they are getting "smoky" (instead of clear) & cracks showing up.  Oklahoma had a 3.8 earthquake early this morning, news said Wichita felt it, & we had a wind change, went from 75° yesterday to barely up to freezing today.  One fence man said we had super strong winds during the night.... could be anything.... but got to replace them.  27 panels at $200. each... and then the labor will be more than the cost of the panels... Wish I hadn't started thinking about it again  :tissue:.... I'm hoping to find a crew to do the work fast or my son will feel he needs to come help. He has been taking care of his grands since their parents have passed that flu back & forth over & over.  They get over one kind & something else hits.  He also teaches 2 Engineering classes at the college, on Fridays... about 200 students so lots of papers to grade. :crazy2:  I worry about him never slowing down & is at that "heart attack age" (58). 

Off to bed, sweet dreams to all and God Bless.

I guess I was tired last night.  I not only didn't come by to say Good night, I didn't even stop by to turn off the computer!  But here I am this morning to say a great big....

GOOD MORNING EVERYFRIEND!  I hope you have a lovely day.  We're supposed to have snow beginning around 4 this afternoon.  Yesterday we had temps up into the 60s and today we're supposed to have snow!  Go figure!

I have no plans for today except to spend some time in the kitchen.  I have to make dog food and I got a recipe off the internet for Pizza Mac and Cheese.  I'm going to try it but I think I'm going to cut it in half.  It looks like it makes a lot.  I'm also considering putting half of it in a disposable baking dish for freezing.  I'll let you know how that turns out.  Also might take some time to go to a craft show in town with my neighbor/friend. 

I wish you all a lovely day whatever you do to fill it up.  Take it and make it your own!

Good Saturday morning to all the S & F  .

Jane, we are supposed to have the snow starting about 3 p.m. down here.  And, then back to 70º on Tues and Wed.  It sure is crazy weather.  I will be anxious to hear how you like the Pizza Mac and Cheese.   Hope you will get to the craft show with your friend.  The spring craft shows will be starting soon down my way, also.   

It is a pretty sunny morning, but still chilly.  I will be turning the thermostat up a little bit and read for a while, after I get something to eat.

I did go down to get my mail from a couple days earlier.  Week ends are very quiet around here.  Although, there was a resident sitting outside smoking.  I didn't really see him until he got up to come in.  He must be new, as I had never seen him before.  People are asked to walk across the driveway to a little grassy area to smoke. 

Nothing special going on, except I do want to try to do some laundry later today.  I find if I wait until later in the day,  I can have the laundry room all to myself.  Most everyone usually get to their's early in the morning.  Since I am not a morning person,  later in the day works for me.

Amy, hope your husband gets a good report from his CT scan.  That waiting is always hard .   Been down that road a lot.

I hope everyone will enjoy their week end, and if you are in the "snowy" area,  please try to stay warm and dry and safe.

Joy

Good morning everyone, I am finally awake. I was so worn out from going shopping Thursday that I laid on the couch dozing on and of all day and then was in bed by 8pm. How we do not appreciate what we took for granted till we cannot do it.

MARY ANN  on one visit to my daughter in the spring they took me to the Desert  where the cacti were in bloom, beautiful to see. I was attacked by one and know how it feels.

LARRY yesterday was another day of drizzle and tonight we have snow in the forecast. Sun is shining now.

SHIRLEY  you are amazing with all you do. Wish I had a bit of your energy.

JANE  snow starts tonight here. They make it sound like a lot of it, maybe 4 inches. Do you remember when we would wake in the morning with at least a foot of snow? Younger people these days would be surprised at the snow we used to get.

A ball of clay
Bob Perks

A ball of clay in your hands. Your life.
A single musical note on a staff.  Your part of life's song.
A finger print.  You touched life and it remembers.
A kind word spoken. Eternal echoes you may not hear.
A gesture, an action done out of kindness.  Action reverberates into the
future even in ways you may never know.
To love.  To live fully.
To be loved.  The reward.
To give without expectation. The truest form of giving.
To receive graciously.  The gift you give the giver.
To laugh.  To see light.
To smile.  To share the light.
To forgive.  To be bigger than the hurt, stronger than the transgressor,
more Christ-like than the sinner.
To fall.  To learn.
To rise after every fall.  To win over and over again.
To be thankful and grateful. 
To live humbly and fully aware of the bountiful life you have discovered in the ball of clay.

Good Morning.   

Just checking in to the new Soda Shoppe.   Not much worth commenting on from my little corner of the world.

Central Oklahoma is slowly moving toward Spring.  Weather still "see-sawing" from heavy coats to tee shirts and back again.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere and Enjoyable Day.

I think the weather is "see-sawing" all over the country.  Yesterday, temps in the mid 60s today snow!  Nice to see you CALLIE!

Hi Everyone. We started  with another warm morning here and we will be in the low 70's this afternoon.  Yesterday our area got to 84 degrees and we were able to open a couple of windows to let some fresh air into the house for a few hours.

I just got back after making  a fast trip to Costco this morning to get a few items and to fill the car with gas. I was fortunate to be able to getting a riding cart to use so didn't wear myself out anymore than I was already.  The road in front of our development is being closed next Tuesday for a couple of months as a tunnel is built under the road to make our 6 mile Greenway accessible to the people living off of our frontage road.  Right now they have to cross the road and that isn't safe.  It just means we will have to drive a few extra miles to get to the Interstate entrance and from the exit back home.   The work is just a short distance down the road from our development.  We have decided to go to Arby's for lunch (probably our main meal of the day). I have one other chore to get done today and that is to grate up another pound of cheddar cheese.  It is not a difficult job since I have the appliance that does the grating. The main work in cutting up the cheese into pieces that will fit into the chute of the appliance.  Then the rest of the day will be for rest and relaxation. 

Don, I could relate to your comments on the outhouse as Missouri often had a lot of snow during the winter. 

mycheal, I expect today's youth might consider having to use an outhouse a child abuse.  :)  Although they might think it was fun since they wouldn't have to do it all the time like many of us did as we were growing up. 

Shirley, it sounds like your outhouse in England is like todays rest rooms in public facilities.  At least you had a wall between.  Your fence project sounds pretty pricey.  However, that does sound like a priority. 

Jane, I very seldom turn off my computers.  There is no consensus on what is best to leave them on or turn them off so it is basically a matter of choice.  Your pizza mac and cheese sounds good.  Pat made up a big batch of goulash in her Instant Pot yesterday and it was good and we have enough in the freezer for two more main meals. 

Amy, hope you can have a restful day today. 

Joy, doing laundry on a snowy day sounds like something good to do especially if you have the laundry room to yourself. 

Gloria, I so agree with you in not appreciating having energy until we end up not having any. 

Callie, are you still having a lot of wind there in Oklahoma?  My memory of living in Oklahoma will always be the constant wind.

Larry,  wind farms are popping up all over western Oklahoma to generate electricity.  Sounds as if some of them will eventually supply electricity to electric companies as far away as you are.  Those turbines are HUGE and built to withstand tornadic winds.  Here are some pictures:

Well  the day didn't turn out the way I thought it would . Hubby said lets go to the fabric sale and it didn't take much coaxing for me to get ready.  :thumbup: I managed to help insulate our home again..prices were great and I picked up Kona cotton for 8.00 a metre!! We stopped off for a lovely lunch then headed on home. Roads were bare and dry, on the way down we saw 5 deer but on the way home nothing.
I have my laundry almost done..just one more load to dry and that is it!!

Joy, I think I would rather do a weeks work than wait but I guess we have no choice on this. His oncologist is so nice , we both think the world of her .

Bubble, to this day I do not like spiders..I am fine with snakes and will move them out of harms way but NO to spiders.

Jane, that is a bonus that both furkids like their spa at home.. how was the craft show?

Better go fold up that last load of laundry.

Enjoy your evening everyone..
