A  young son declared, “When I grow up, I’m going to marry you, Mommy.”

“You can’t marry your own mother,” said his older sister.

“Then I’ll marry you.”

“You can’t marry me either.”

He looked confused, so I explained, “You can’t marry someone in your own family.”

“You mean I have to marry a total stranger?!” he cried.

My mother was standing on the bus when she noticed that a
man holding on to the same pole was staring at her.

Finally, he said, “Excuse me. This is my stop.”

“Well,” she said, “go ahead.”

“This is my pole,” he said.

My mother was confused until he added, “I just bought it at a store to hold up my shower curtain.”

Good morning everyone..

Happy May day to you also Don and Bubble. Bubble thank you for the new start page and the giggles to go with it...loved them.

Today is VON and then will decide how to take/make the day. I am so happy to have the internet up and running again. How did we manage before internet?? I tried to get my mail moved to another mail system but to no avail so it stays.

Shirley, the worst area I had to help him up was when he fell between the wall and the bed but we did manage. Another time when he fell out in the kitchen on the ceramic floor I ran and got the step/box he made for the dog to get into bed and got him sitting on that and then stand up.

Larry, thank you, I never thought of google to see what they say but will. I am sorry you have so many funerals to go to.

Jenny , have a safe trip today.

Joy they called for snow or rain on Sunday and we got a beautiful day, so off we went for a drive. Nice when the weather guesser is wrong.

Gloria, I can't do all that I once did either and it is hard to accept that. If I put a 100 lb bag of feed over my shoulder now I would likely go with it! I have found "helper" when I need to do things and so far they are working for me. Instead of carrying the laundry basket downstairs now I let it slide on the steps and then pick it up at the bottom.

June, hope all is well your way..

Better get a move on here

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning everyone 38° this morning  to welcome May in. According to weather forecast we will be getting to 80° tomorrow. Late yesterday felt like winter and I turned the heat  up and tomorrow is to feel like summer then thnderstorms on Thursday. Crazy, what  happened to the wonderful spring days we used to have?

LARRY  I have the heat on now but I expect it will be turned off after the witch gets here later. She has a big heater in her office so she could be warm. Last fall when i t s tar  ted get ting cold the maintenance man argued with her that the heat  should be turned on and she told him it was too early. He told her tha t seniors cannot  take the cold we had. He won that one. I love the Me channel. I like Grit, too. Al west erns on that one. In the afternoon they have several of the old Death Valley Days series. Love seeing some of the old act ors on those, even Ronald Reagan at  times.

GLORIA de  I made a mistake when I started posting Joan's old posts and did not check them off so would not repeat them. Now I do check them so I do not repeat them.

JENNY  you do know me and how I love seeing different places, especially mountains and beautiful scenery. Enjoy your travels and being with son and DIL.

BUBBLE  thank you for the new month and beautiful graphics and jokes.

DON  Happy May Day to you, too.

AMY  I have been independant for so many years it is hard to accept that I can do so little now. I am used to the help I get and thankful for it but some days it bothers me to watch as they do my work.

Seems odd not seeing Jane here this morning. Hope she is enjoying her stay in Oklahoma.

Have a good day.

When all that you can say...
Bob Perks

When all that you can say is, "thank you!" it is better than saying nothing. People long to be appreciated.

When all that you can say is, "I'm here if you need me," it may be more than anyone else offered.

When all that you can say is, "I'm sorry!" it may be exactly what they wanted to hear and what you needed to say.

When all that you can say is, "Forgive me?" it touches two people, you and the forgiver.

When all that you can say is, "I need you!" you can't imagine how good it is to be needed.

When all that you can say is, "God, help me!" it is the most powerful prayer.

When all that you can say is, "I love you!" it has the power to break down walls, melt hearts, re-unite, bring peace, transform, bring joy, strengthen a relationship, console, comfort a child, restore a marriage and confirm your commitment to a friend.

"I love you, my friend!

l'm here Gloria but it's earlier in Texas than it is in Pa and I'm not changed over yet. We're not going to OK until Thursday when my granddaughter (Emma's new auntie) gets here.  Today I' making Pa Dutch pot pie and I've been instructed to "make enough to bring some along to OK". We've also been told not to eat it all until Courtney gets here.

Jim just got back from the store so I guess I'll get started on the potpie. Enjoy your day Everyfriend.

Hi Everyone.  It is another sunny but chilly morning in the 40's but suppose to get up to the mid-80's this afternoon.  The main thing on our agenda today is to go to vote on a $90 million dollar bond referendum to allow for building some new schools and renovating some that need a lot of repair and upgrading.  Two of the new schools are in North Augusta where I live and certainly can't hurt our property values as this is a growing area and I will vote iin favor of it.  It may raise my property taxes up by about $40 a year.

I did attend the funeral I mentioned yesterday and there had to have been between four and five hundred people in attendance.  It was the biggest funeral I have ever attended or expect to attend.  Jennifer and Elizabeth got here shortly before I had to leave and Elizabeth got busy right away and took out and cleaned the drain pipes for the five sinks we have in this house.  She then washed down the three columns on our front porch to remove the mildew and they sure look better.  She will paint them for us a little later.  Finally she washed our car and cleaned it out inside.  This young lady is a very capable person and is willing to do what needs to be done.  We paid her well for her work.  The rest of the day was spent resting and working more on my laptop.

deAngel, it is nice to have friends drop by to visit but it can be very tiring as one feels they have to keep the conversation going.  The friend that visited us last week sent us a beautiful Calla Lilly plant yesterday that is in bloom with a blue/purple flower.

Jenny, you are very wise to do all the traveling you can now as the day may come, as it has for Pat and I, that you may not be able to do so.  Elizabeth is the worker.  I told her yesterday that God has been good to us in putting people into our lives when we have needed them such as the young Nigerian "grandson" in Georgia who helped us get ready to move and now Elizabeth, who is our new "granddaughter" and is so willing to do whatever we need done and seems to know how to do it. 

Bubble, thanks once again for getting us off to a great start on this month of May with the beautiful graphics.  I have not heard or read the Mother poem for many years.  That was a funny story of the man and woman on the bus. 

Don, Happy May Day to you as well.  These months are really flying by. 

Amy, it sounds like you have several techniques to help your husband get up.  I sometimes wonder how we put up with the old slow dial up when we first got the Internet but know at that time it was amazing.  I sure hope I am through attending funerals for a very long time.  When our daughter was still living with us and we had our upstairs bonus room fixed into a bedroom with a closet we had a laundry shoot put in from her room to a corner of the garage with a door at the bottom that kept the clothes from falling out until you wanted them to do so.  Our laundry room is on our main level since we don't have a basement. 

Gloria, it was chilly here in the house this morning but didn't want to turn the heat on as it will be getting hot this afternoon and we will need to use the AC.  We don't get the Grit channel but there are plenty of Western type series on ME TV.  It seems the older I get the less TV I want to watch as just enjoy the peace and quiet or listening to music. 

Jane, nice to see you are safely in Texas and have a day or so before you go on to Oklahoma.  For some reason it is hard to beat mother's or grandmother's cooking so sure it is a treat to have you cook something while you are there.  We had a Marie Callendar's Chicken Pot Pie for our dinner last night.

LARRY the chicken pot pie I make has the accent on "pot" not "pie". It has no crust and is made in a pot with chicken, broth, dough squares that I mak and potatoes. It's a Pennsylvania Dutch dish. My grandfather was German and I've been eating it since I was old enough to remember. My whole family loves it!  And if you're not from Pennsylvania you probably never heard of it.


I better get back to my job or we won't have it for our supper.  Hope you are all having a good May 1.

Can't say good morning anymore,  so I will just say "Hello".

I was here earlier and wrote a long message and then hit "something" and lost it all.  Didn't have time then to rewrite it, then.

Jane,  I had written about the kind of pot pie you were probably making for your family. Living not too far from Amish country, I am very familiar with the type you are talking about.    Years ago,  I guess it was the first time I had the Pa. Dutch Pot  Pie it was at a pot luck at a campground when we were traveling.  I thought I was eating some kind of a "scalloped potato dish". Thought those  big pieces of soft dough  was potato. It might also had pieces of potato in it.   Turned out to be the "slippery pot pie.  Lots of times,  I have seen the different fire companies up in Amish country where they advertised the "baked chicken pot pie, or the slippery pot pie.   I think the chicken and dumpling dish that the Crackle Barrel restaurant serves is just about the same thing.  I love anything that is "doughy"  .  I know your family will enjoy your cooking while you are there.

Now, Texas, where you are now, where the new baby is???   I was a little confused, as I thought you were just going to Oklahoma. Anyway,, I know you are having a great visit.

Gloria, I, too, turned the heat up a little bit this morning, but didn't let it run long.  Just enough to take the chill off.  I am hoping that I can turn it off completely until next winter arrives.  I know how hard it is to have to realize that we can't do the things like we used to do.  But,  I just  try to do the best I can. I am so careful walking, as I have this fear of falling and I sure don't want to have to got through that.  My walker has to be very close by.

Amy, glad you were able to get out for a nice ride.

Larry,  I  am sorry that you have had no many funerals to have to go to lately.  The older we get, I guess we all experience more funerals.   Last year, there were over a dozen residents that passed away here where I live in just a little over several weeks.   It was kind of a depressing time.

Bubble, really enjoyed your "MOTHER" tribute. I have always liked that poem .   And, the jokes were cute, too.  Thanks for the new page.

Time to think about getting a little lunch.

Wishing everyone a pleasant afternoon.

Joy

Nearly time to go down for lunch, but I wil get a start on my dull message anyway. spent a third of the morning with the massages and  exercises then half an hour on the breathing machine, then some breakfast, washing body and teeth, theN a quick trip down for our monthly community members meeting, then home to water my plants, and now HERE I AM ! Pooped out and ready for a nap, but first I have to travel down to the dining room for my main meal of the day. Which is right now........

Another day on it's way downhill. Had a delicious lunch.. slice of fried chicken breast, fr. fries,a big lettuce and veg.salad, started with Italian wedding soup, and ended with a variety of cookies and coffee. Back was aching by then so took a couple of pills and a nice nap.

Still a cloudy sky, so I feel it is time to take long walk and get the needed exercise. I shall return, Godf willing and the creek don't rise.

Gloria de, it seems like I spend more of my life sleeping than anything else I do. After todays snooze I took a really long walk through the three floors of the D building, which is about three times larger than my C building.It was too much though and I won't do it again. I stumbled three times before I got home. Fortunately I had a good grip on my rollator. Now I am home for the rest of the day.Have plenty of food on hand, and started another new book today.

I will be happy when those of you still doing winter weather will have Spring arrive. We are so fortunate out here on the West coast. It was overcast all day, and we badly need rain, but otherwise it's great climate wise.

Time to have  a bite to eat then into sleeping clothes and just loafing the rest of the day. I love you all. June

It's 9 pm here (EDT) and I feel I haven't done anything (as usual) but I was busy this morning.  I had my hair cut, then Tom and I went to breakfast, then we went to the clinic where I had blood drawn prior to a May 23 doctor's appointment.  I usually don't have that much going in one day. 

The association is having pesticide put on the lawns which makes it necessary to keep the cat in the house.  He is an inside cat anyway, but he escapes sometimes.  We have to be on the alert to see that he doesn't dart outside.

It was very warm here today - officially 84 but closer to 75 at my condo.  It has been warm inside but I don't want to turn on the a/c yet and the next week is to be cooler which I will appreciate.

Good morning everyone..

Dogs seemed to think I should get up. I let them out and I know they will both head straight back to bed!

Not a lot planned today other than head in town to pick up clementine's, the store was out yesterday but said a new shipment is in today. Weather has been lovely and today will be no different, 40° F at the moment. We did notice how high the water was in town and soon it will overflow the banks.

June, I would say you did a lot yesterday.

Joy, I didn't bother putting a fire on this morning as the temp in the house is 70° we may have to use the fire for a few mornings and damp days but I think the full time burning is over for now.

Just realised I do have another job to do today and that is cut the dogs nails. I did do the neighbours dog on Fri so he is alright for a couple of weeks.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning.  I didn't make it in here yesterday.  It was a day that my body and my head just said slow down...so I did.

I'm sorry, Lloyd, for your accident yesterday and so glad that you didn't break anything.  Please slow down and take it easy.

Sounds as though you are having a wonderful time with your Texas/Oklahoma family, Jane.  I'm sure they are enjoying your cooking and doesn't it feel good to do something for those you love?

Lovely morning here again and supposed to be quite warm.  Stay well, everyone!

Good morning everyone, 55° to start my day. Going up to 80°. Winter to summer with 1 spring day inbetween.

JANE  don't know why I thought you were headed right to Oklahoma. I remember the first time I went to San Diego that 3 hour time change really got me mixed up. I always came home on a Friday to give me a couple of days before heading back to work. Gee you are on vacation and they put you to work baking? Shows no one can make that pie like Mom does. Don't forget to give Emma a hug for me.

AMY  been almost 3 years since I got to hold my great grandson. He will be 3 in July and now I get hugs back from him.

LARRY  your Elizabeth sure knows how to work for a y oung girl. So many of the younger CNAs I have had only want to sit and play on their cell phones or tablets. At first I let them but read over their rules again and if they took one or the other out I would not let them. Most of the young ones thought it would be an easy job and there were only 2 that were good. The ones I have now are from mid 30's tp mid 40's and know their jobs. They are not supposed to wash windows but one of them has washed mine a couple of times. On Grit it is mostly all old Western movies. The Death Valley Days is about the only old TV series.

JOY  like you I have a fear of falling, I would never be able to get myself up anymore. My rollator is close to me at all times. I might ask my son to come and put my AC in. Just heard that it will be humid and 80° and humid will do me in.

LLOYD  yes time for you to get rid of the machinery you have. Every time you work on it alone you get hurt. Feel better and PLEASE be careful.

JUNE  there was a time I would have enjoyes all the food you had for lunch yesterday but now just a few bites and I would not be able to eat anymore. Wish I knew the name of what Lilias  took to give her an appetite then Mare took it too. Around here doctors know of nothing to give me an appetite.

GLORIA de  like you I have the time to travel but even being in a car for half an hour I want to go home.

MARY ANN  the official temperat ure here comes from the TFGreen airport and that is at the shore. At times between there and here there can be a 15 degree difference. Colder here in winter and warmer in summer, ocean breezes do not reach here.

AMY  you are lucky you know how to clip dog's nails. I know the groomers here charge quite a lot to do that job.

PHYLLIS  like you I have days where I want to do something and the body will not let me.

Time to make my breakfast and then shower and dress for the day. Hafe a great day.

Old Folks

Dear Pastor:
 
    Don't ever forget about us old folks. We are worth a fortune. We have Silver in our hair, Gold in our teeth, Stones in our kidney's, Lead in our feet and Gas in our stomachs.
 
    I myself have become quite a frivolous old gal since I wrote you last.
As a matter of fact, I'm seeing five different gentleman every day.
 
    When I get up in the morning, Will Power gets me out of bed. Then I immediately go see John. A few minutes later, Charley Horse comes along.
When he leaves, Arthur-itis shows up and finally I'm so tired, I go to bed with Ben Gay.
 
    As you can see, we all need your prayers.....

Hi Everyone.  Once again we will be enjoying a nice sunny day with it getting into the mid-80's this afternoon.  Pat has a doctor's appointment  this morning and then we will have our Wednesday night dinner at Church.  Tonight is Taco night with  ice cream and all the trimmings for dessert.  Scott and Elizabeth will be joining us and I thought Jennifer was also but she changed her mind.  About all I did yesterday, besides my normal work in the kitchen, was to go to vote.  The school bond referendum did pass. 

Jane, thanks for explaining your chicken pot pie.  That sounds like a hefty meal in a pot.  It does sound good but you are right I have never heard of it.  Hope you are getting a lot of visiting done while you are with your family. 

Joy, it is frustrating when we spend time writing a posting and then lose it but it seems to happen to most of us.  I have never heard of slippery pot pie.  All we can do is the best we can.  Glad you are very careful not to fall.  I also try to be careful but so far other than occasionally losing my balance but recovering before falling is about all that happens to me.  My fear is that Pat will fall.  When so many of our friends are all older people we have to expect that we will be attending more funerals.  However, two of the three I have attended here recently were for relatively young people who had cancer.  I did attend quite a few funerals of my coffee drinking friends where I lived over the about 20 years I participated in that group. 

Lloyd, I think Nancy is going to have to wrap you in cotton when you work with your equipment.  Glad your leg wasn't broken and sorry it is so painful for you.  Mary Ann gave you some really good advice. 

Amy, I liked your suggestion of bubble wrap for Lloyd better than the one I suggested. 

June, it sounds like you had a pretty busy day yesterday.  That was really a nice lunch. Sure glad you didn't fall and you now know what your limits for walking are. 

Mary Ann, we just saw the lawn man in our back yard spreading fertilizer.  I do remember those signs put in our other yard when it was sprayed or fertilized to not let pets on it for 24 hours. 

Amy, we often buy clementines and they are so easy to peel.  At least you know you will be getting fresh ones.  Is your town subject to flooding?

Phyllis, glad to see you felt up to posting today.  You did the right thing to slow down yesterday if your body was telling you to do so.  We are having nice weather here on the East Coast.  I just saw the weather report on TV that the mid-section of the country is in for bad storms and tornadoes today.   

Gloria, glad you are finally getting some warm days.  I bet that cooking pot that Jane is using is just filled with love as well as the food items.  I agree that Elizabeth is a jewel and seems to know how to do a lot of different things.  I hope she soon will start work on college courses so she can look forward to a bright future.  A lot of truth in your "Old Folks" posting. 

deAngel, I always felt we didn't have the money to do much traveling so for many years our annual vacation was done with trips back to visit our folks.  Now, when we can afford to do some traveling neither one of us are up to doing so.

Good Morning Everyfriend. We're going up to Tulsa tomorrow. That's when I get to hold Baby Emma. My granddaughter her auntie is arriving this morning. I already told Courtney that I'm going to be selfish with her. She (Courtney) will be back many times. I might not be.

JOY. You're probably right about the"slippery potpie" being the kind I make. I never heard that definition. And, yes, there are potatoes in it.

SHIRLEY AND AMY, I was telling my daughter some of the things you both do and she was smiling and nodding and I finished with "they're a couple of human dynamos!"  She nodded, smiled and sai "so are you!"  I'm not in your league but I try.

Enjoy your day Everyfriend.

Been to town and picked up two bags of Mandarin oranges and just finished clipping the dogs nails.one just lays there while the other I have to do like a horse, lift her feet and work that way. Whatever works with the least fighting is ok with me.

Jane, your daughter is right!! You are not only in the league you lead it!!!

Going to go rake the garden beds, it is so love3ly out that I doubt I will be wearing this fleece top for long..

Larry... 

Regarding fertilizing  with out
warning of the dangers???   


There was a time with the United
States Environmental Protection
Agency  was there to protect us .... 

I don't think that is the case any longer.... 
Good management is now in the toilet. 

(Just a thought) ... 

I THINK  that now we have to
be  particularly careful with what we eat, 
and  where we breath these days... 
 JMHO...of course!

The weather here in Maine is starting to 
look better and better.   Lot's of
sunshine today...     Hello Spring time!

Have a good day,  everyone. 
Sandy
