“Give me a sentence about a public servant,” the teacher instructed her second-grade student.
“The fireman came down the ladder pregnant,” he answered.
“Umm … Do you know what pregnant means?”
“Yes,” said the boy. “It means
carrying a child.”

Good morning Everyfriend!  It was only 35º when I got up this morning!  And it's only supposed to get into the low 70s but it should be a sunny day.

Bubble, I love that joke but it always makes me wonder how that teacher explained things to that child.  She'd have to, you know, or she'd have an entire class believing his definition.  Teachers don't have it easy!

I feel rested this morning....still a bit of residual "tired" left over from the weekend activities but I have no plans for today until I pick up TLH at the bus after school. 

I wish you all love and laughter!  Take this day and make it yours!

I am following the news on CNN - I am in shock.
Why, oh why???
No amount of security could have stopped or prevented such an insane act. My heart hurt for all those mourning families, all the hurt people, the trauma of those in the audience who just congregated for a fun evening.  :'(

Dear friends, please take care.

Good morning.

I see that there is a new page to start the new week.   I did write a message last evening,  I was late getting in here yesterday, with my account of the family party I went to on Saturday,  so it is on the last page of last week's messages, if anyone is interested. 

It is a pretty sunny morning here today, but temperature is only in the 40's.  I did turn the furnace on for a little while.   I need to get dressed so that I can take my rent check and some mail downstairs. 

Hope every friend will have a wonderful start to the new week.

For those of you who are not aware of what Bubble is talking about:

More than 50 dead, 200 injured in mass shooting on Las Vegas Strip

https://lasvegassun.com/news/2017/oct/01/reports-active-shooters-on-las-vegas-strip/

Sad.

Good Morning Everyone!

Not really a good morning, is it?

Hi Everyone.  We have a cool morning with a clear sky and low humidity.  Yesterday was truly a delightful one weather-wise with a nice breeze and low humidity.  I ended up going to Sunday School and Church alone yesterday as when Pat went to get ready her back was hurting a lot and she said she was feeling a bit nauseous. I picked up  lunch and brought it home.  Our main activity for today is an appointment with the back surgeon so Pat can get an evaluation of whether surgery would help her back problems or not.

Lloyd, I have never lived where I had to contend with rattlesnakes.  I leave all snakes alone.

Jenny, I caught the end of the Broncos/Raiders game and know you would be happy with the outcome. That is quite and honor for Cathy to ring the closing bell at the stock exchange.  Is this something related to her company doing something new?

Hal, getting a ticket does put a damper on the day.  I have been tp Pikes Peek twice but don't remember anything about the condition at the top other than as with most places there was a gift shop. 

Jane, what a blessing to have all four of your children together at the same table and to be included in their activities during the weekend.  Now you can take a couple of days to recoup since you are on vacation.

deAngel, we don't have any channels that show the Carol Burnett or Johnny Carson shows.  I will occasionally watch a YouTube video of Carol Burnett.  I did see a brief news bit showing the three presidents at the golf match.  I  thought the Presidents in the title probably referred to the President of the PGA.  I didn't watch any of this weekend.  I hope the USA team won and see from Mary Ann that they did win. 

Joy, that sounds like some party and glad you had a good time and were able to stay warm. 

Bubble, thanks for getting us started on the new month and that was the perfect graphic.  I loved the little story you shared.  The logic of a child. The shooting in Las Vegas is apparently the worst massacre of civilians in the nations history at an event like the parade. There are some very sick and deranged people in this world that must hate everyone.

[size=10pt Very sad news from Nevada.  I am so impressed with the quick response of so many people - offering trucks and helping wounded.  A lot of brave people in that crowd.  Such twisted mindset to even plan this tragedy.

Larry, I get Johnny Carson, Carol B, & lots of the old sit-coms & westerns... SO much plus the local stations for news, etc... on my little antennas that cost me nothing after initial expense of buying (2 for either $40 or $60 ...less than one month of cable).  I don't get HGTV and don't get the Hallmark channel... but most cost extra on cable anyway.  No "talk" that drove me nuts & not all the sports (still mre than I like). 

I heard the news on the old Sony that I still turn on when I wake up... this morning before 4:00 am.... I'm getting by with 3 hours & 14 min. sleep so far today.  Totally frustrated that the dome over the skylight in the shower has a big saucer size hole in it... from a low hanging tree branch.  I had no idea they were so fragile, have 3 different vents with fans that are okay but not raised as high as the skylight.  WHY would they put a skylight in a shower?  It doesn't give more head room like the skylight in the entrance of the Rialta.  Ah, well, on with the phone calls & frustration.  Got to find some way to patch that hole that will withstand 75 mph winds as I roll down the highway for a reunion in MO this week end. 

My problems are nothing compared with those poor people in Vegas.... Wonder what will be discovered about the shooter, some kind of nut, for sure. 

Oh, and on a good note, how about those high school football players running out with the big American flags... warms the heart!!!

Thank you, Bubble, for keeping us neat.... love the joke & also enjoyed the other one.  My kind of funnies...

Thanks to all of you for sharing your days, even the bad days brighten mine, sharing misery, you know.

I'm off... and truly am this morning.... hope all of you have a great day with lots of happy thoughts.  Better stay away from radio & TV, that news is awful.   Shirley

Merry Monday, Everyfriend.

Haven't had the t.v. on this morning so don't know anything about the news. Am quite sure I'll hear all about it several times in great detail with interviews and pictures of the worst scenes over and over when I do turn it on.

Hal,   Sons/Spouses were at the TXTech/OSU game.  Son commented it was a typical game between the two...."Last one with the ball wins."

 DIL coming for lunch.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Janie, my counter is alive with the sound of music :thumbup: Went to the Mennonite market and bought another peck of pears and some Crispin apples to can. May put off the apples until tomorrow, this way I shall be able to go sew.

Listening to the news anymore makes me sick, how can one take out so many innocent lives?? Prayers for the families of these people.

Think my canner is calling me......take care everyone..

I just accidentally hit the back key and erased my entire post!   :tickedoff:

When will I learn? Of course,  I feel totally ill! 

I could try to rewrite it, but being the over yakkity yaker that I am... it is a bit overwhelming to me right now.  😤😩

I do want to thank you, BUBBLE, for our new SS.  I LOVED THE GRAPHIC AND YOUR STORY!

HAL, I just wanted to say, “I am sorry” for the unfortunate happing yesterday as you tried to hurry when you were late for church. 

We have been watching the terrible news out of Vegas.  So sad for all the families that are involved.  One can only try to imagine how the mans family must feel as they try to understand how their loved one could possibly do this to the unsuspecting victims.  😩

We are awaiting the closing hour of the Nasdaq.  We are set up to hopefully watch it live to see our Cathy.  It is quite the honor that she is there.  The heads of the company was to be on several talk shows this morning but was preempted, of course, due to this terrible tragedy. 😩😩

Just a short note to tell you I am having trouble with this darn mouse and the way it will or will not move. Ijust jumps all over the monitor on it;s own. Have a phone call into my grandson but might take several days for him to get back to me. Needless to say I cannot read anything even email.

Bubble, thank you for keeping us all together. There are not enough words to express our thankfulness to you. I for one, would be completely lost without all of you....our special family... How I do wish we would hear some news from Kate and Joe as to how our Bis/Joan is progressing.  It has been a long and difficult path for all of them, but what a treasure to have that last picture of her and Finlay.

Now more horror in Las Vegas. A quiet, joyful party, and one mad man goes berserk. No sense in it at all.

Here in my little spot on the map, all is well. I finally did get my grocery order placed, but it was a late to bed for me.  Groceries delivered and put away, but small chores really leave me brainless now. I think I need a "keeeper" to help me wander some of  these "off" days. I'll choose to be thankful for what God does allow me muddle through. He is a great and gracious Godl
As long as we are here, let's dance.

For those of you who lose your post try clicking on the "back arrow" if you use Firefox.  I have hit the wrong thing or whatever and lose my post, but I find that in many cases you screen has advanced on space.  I don't know if this will work with IE.

Callie, I am ashamed to admit I don't even know what the score was in the OSU/TT game. 

Well the big one is coming up.  The Texas state fair opened in Big D and OU/Texas will have their Red River shoot out.  I am sure we are on.

June I am like you.  Wish we would hear something from Joanie or her family.  Miss that lady.

Hal, Our Bis is a very special lady. I feel she really loved us all, and enjoyed giving us happy thoughts. Some illnesses are very cruel,and they strike some of the finest people. And so we learn from them Hal. When I think of the Love that has passed through these pages, and how we have been strengthened through our associations. And now Bubble has stepped in to fill a gap. Thanks be to God. I am very confident that with a bit more time our Bis will return, and we will rejoice.

I hope your back is giving you the peace and pain freedom it was meant to do.

Good morning everyone! hope you all have a great day.

AMY I have some questions for you.#1 what part of the world do you live in?
#2 is your phone long distance to USA?we have free long distance in USA. If we do to you and you  are willing to give us your phone # wewould call and visit with you (phone or skype) #3 do you have skype? hope you do and you are willing to talk to us on it like peter and i do. I am getting Nancy interested in using the computer. she is a very nerviess person. afraid she will mess it up I keep telling her she can't do any thing to it that can't be fixed. have a great day.

I talked with Nancy about quilts but she thinks all old quilts along with the bedspreads I made got burnt up when the old house burned. as you may know Nancy and I were devourced for a few years and then got back together.
we both have mellowed some what. oh yes I am a jack of all trades Master of none. when I drove a truck over the road, I first knitted, but the retainers kept cumming off the needles, so a learned how to crochet.could tis a knot in it and not loose stitches and wind up with holes in work piece.

Good morning everyone.

Another cool morning here  temp is 30° at the moment. Will get apple pie filling canned today if all goes well. Have to take hubby in for blood work first and VON will be here later today.
Gloria, I bought Mutsu/Crispin apples to use  for pie filling. Hope it turns out alright.

Jane, enjoy each day of your vacation!!

Lloyd, good morning and yes I am long distance here in Canada. I don't have Skype sorry. I was sad to read that all of Nancy quilts were lost in the fire, all that hard work gone. Tell Nancy I was a nervous as a cat with a long tail in a room full of rocking chairs when I first  got a computer. Tell her she can do it and we would all love to hear from her.


Enjoy your day everyone..

Thanks for the reply, my email address is if you would like to use it Is all lower case, ( bluweb 37 @ gmail. com )  i wish you had skype it is second best to being there, see each other straight away. I don't think we have free to Canada.
will ck and see.  also we do not have passports Now required to come there.i several years ago when not required hauled horses with a friend to grinvill Canada . you are tougher than I. I did not like your 40º /50º below 0º . If we go ahead and sell our place retaining life rights to G D and hubby, we could get a passport and come see you in summer time. sure not in winter had all that when we were hauling horses up there. S I L has kin up there some place. maybe we could come up there and crash you all,and go fishing up there as our cousin did. they never knew you so they just went fishing.

Good morning Everyfriend!  I got up earlier with the doggies, let them out and then gave them the pills we have to wait for.  Since I didn't sleep well and I still have a little residual tiredness from my busy weekend, I slept out the hour of wait time. 

LLOYD, tell Nancy that if the rest of us can do the computer thing, she can, too.  When it frustrates me, I yell at it.  It doesn't help but it relieves me.  I also threaten it with being thrown on the trash heap if it doesn't cooperate.  That doesn't help either....or maybe it does! 

I'm not sure what I'm going to get into today.  AMY is making me hungry with her apples.  I might go see what the orchard stand has for sale and get started on some applesauce.  I think I might have 4 small jars left but I use it for "thank you offereings" for my daughter when she picks up things for me and won't let me pay for them.  Tuesday is Senior Citizen day at this stand and I qualify for the 10% discount so it's a good day to go.  I like a combination of Jonathon and MacIntosh apples for applesauce. 

Take today and make it yours!

Good morning,  Jane, Amy and Lloyd.   You are all such loyal posters every morning.

It is a pretty sunny morning, but still a little chilly.  Supposed to go up to the mid- 70's today. 

Yesterday, I went down about 9:30 to put some mail out and just peeped out the door to see what the temperature felt like.  I was so surprised that it felt so warm that I went out front and wound up sitting out for almost 2 hours.  It was just such a beautiful morning and the sun was actually "hot".   I was waiting for the mailman as I was expecting a package, but after sitting there so long, I was getting tired of sitting that I came back in and didn't go back down until later in the day.

I did watch a lot of the news from Las Vegas.  It is just so heartbreaking to watch that horrible tragedy. I just don't know where this world is coming to. 

I need to get some breakfast and then see what the day will bring.

Have a great Tuesday.

We are in for another beautiful day with the high around 80 degrees this afternoon.  Yesterday Pat saw the surgeon and he told her surgery would not solve her back problems.  I think she was relieved as now doesn't have to make that decision.  Unfortunately, she will have to live with the back pain treating it with medication.  After her appointment we went to Walmart to pick her prescriptions for her.  Then we stopped at the Dairy Queen and had a good and filling lunch/dinner.  It was 3 pm before we got home. 

The only think on my calendar for today is a routine appointment with my cardiologist.  I have two doctor appointment on Thursday and had them mixed up in my mind thinking the two were today and the one I have today on Thursday.

Carol, there are so many good people in the world that will help their fellow citizens in times of need. I wonder if the motives for the Las Vegas killings will ever be known. 

Shirley, if it were only me I would certainly cut way back or eliminate the satellite TV.  However, Pat spends many hours with the programs on and so we keep paying the high bills each month.  You are not getting much sleep.  I got 9 hours of sleep last night and am still wiped out as the last few days have been busy it seems and tiring. A skylight over a shower certainly isn't a good idea today with all the drones that are now being used.   

Callie, both NBC and CBS had extended newscasts last evening devoted to the Las Vegas situation. 

Amy, hope you got to sew yesterday and got the pears worked up.  Wow, a talking canner.  :)

Jenny, the shooters family are also victims of his actions as their lives were changed instantly. 

Gloria, I had a similar problem with a mouse and discovered it was the mouse as when I replaced it the problem went away. 

Hal and Lloyd, you give good advice on trying to recover something lost in posting.  You can also right click the mouse and see if the undo function is available if the posting was highlighted and thus erased.  However, that doesn't seem to always work. 

June, your post #21 expressed so well what these discussions and our cyber family relationships have met over these many years.  Glad you got your grocery order finished. 

Lloyd, Nancy's concern of messing up the computer is certainly a common one among older folks as they begin to use it.  I was involved with the SeniorNet Learning Center in our previous county for several years as the seniors in the class expressed that concern over and over.

Joy, glad you were able to sit outside for awhile.  I could have done that yesterday afternoon as it was so nice here but opted for laying down and resting. 

Jane, your computer doesn't care if you yell at it and it probably helps relieve your frustrations.  I expect all of us have those feeling on occasion.
