It's rough when you can't get a good night's sleep. It happens to me often. Take care, and drive carefully to work. Glad that you checked in for a moment.
Very true, Roaming is a really good person that a lot of people try to give her a rough way to go. The lady works two jobs, takes care of her own household and sees that her elderly parents needs are met. That say's it all.

For those that may not know, the old antique beds set so high off the floor so that the chamber pot would fit under. My granny's slats holding the springs up broke once and she fell into the pot. hehehehe

So the ex left you with the thunder mug? Too bad she did not leave you some iron skillets so you could join that discussion. LOL
Yep AW, but I don't need the thunder mug since I found the 5 gallon plastic bucket. LOL. You know AW, I could kick my own butt. I moved out of that house and left behind 3 or 4 cast iron skillets behind. I did remember to get the small cast iron one. That's the one I use to bake cornbread in. I intentionally left all of that slick Tupperware junk behind. That junk is great to beat you to death everytime you open a cabinet door. I think it jumps off of the shelf. LOL.

Hi Oglala. I sure did, slept so hard my back is killing me. Hate it when that happens! lol Have a good day.
Have a good day to you, too. I know the feeling when you get a bad back. Sometimes I just move the wrong way and it goes out. I don't know about you, but with me, it's a sign that I'm getting older but still trying to do the things I did when I was younger.

Two military helicopters just went over, east to west. They were probably half a mile away but still really loud. I heard them coming way before they got here.

I bet that's scary AW. Lol. Maybe you and dog need to buy my pee pot. Dang if I would go outside with those things howling. Lol.
There are two packs nearby where I live, and they get to howling every night. One of my outdoor dogs likes to join in. Thank goodness he never tries to find the pack. Even though he is a huge dog, he wouldn't stand a chance with a pack. The coyotes are getting very large. One was brave enough to come within 200 feet of the house. She just stared at me for awhile, then loped off. They certainly are not afraid of humans.

Mine is probably from acting a fool when I was young. I can sleep in some bad position then wake up and can't hardly move. Then I walk around with a catch in my get along for the whole day! lol

Ok, so like today is stacking split wood day and getting it in the dry. Seasoned maple burns about as good as the oaks but that twisted wood is a bugger to split. I seen some great birds eye maple in there and saved a few select peices for small projects. If the man who cut this one down had called me, I'd had some absolutly fine curly maple planks and birds eye boards for my wood projects but he'd already wacked it up into random lengths.
When I cleard my land I took the bigger oaks and split them to make benchs around the fire pit and landscapes. I hate wasting natural resources when options are there.
We did the same when we built our barn up North. We had the stall walls and all the barn interior done in oak, from trees where we cleared some land for a small paddock. Boy, do I miss that barn. It was a beautiful log barn and matched our gambrel log house. I wish that I could have taken the barn to Kentucky. We had a decent barn constructed here, with an attached apartment on the other side of the barn.(That's where I went when I didn't want to deal with people. But even so, our barn here does not hold a candle to the one I had In Ma. Oh well, got to make some trade-offs sometimes.

Do y'all remember back when they allowed airplanes to break the sound barrier? That was so cool but it sure would scare the heck out of you if you weren't expecting it. LOL I remember being outside with my grandfather one day (about 1968) and heard the big BOOM when a plane went over. I said something about it thundering then he told me it wasn't thunder and told me that the plane did it.

Fellow Bird Threaders, are you getting behind posting? Are you irritated because you have to stop posting long enough to answer natures calls to the bathroom/outhouse? Are you losing your spot in line for brownie points and toosh kissing?
Well suffer no more. I have for sale one gently used chamber pot/thunder mug. This is a white enamel coated potty, with a few minor chigger bite chips in the enamel. No lid, but it's only two dollars. Act quickly and I will include a template to cut a hole in your favorite chair for a sure fit installation of your new used thunder mug.
Never miss another key stroke.
Nah,had to use one of those potties when I was in the hospital. It grossed me out. Boy, one of those thundermugs can really stink up a room if it is not emptied right away. Hey, Una, you may want to keep that thing. It would certainly amplify the methane that you like to expel. Just don't light a match.

I can sympathize with her. I took care of my mother up until 6 weeks before she passed away. At the same time, I had to take care of my young grandson, who we finally got to adopt. Life is not easy sometimes, but you still can't let it get to you. I found that if I keep my spirits up, no matter what is going on, I can get through any difficulties that life throws at me. I am sure that you would agree that the Lord will not give us any life challenge that we cannot overcome. When I'm getting overwhelmed, I just put it in God's hands. Works for me, anyway.

That's one reason I'm wanting to get rid of it. I'm afraid I'll forget and flick my Bic. LOL.

Yep, I remember the noise those jets made. It would startle you because you didn't expect it.

That is the only way it will work. I was very fortunate and blessed to have been allowed to hold my Dads hand as his spirit passed into eternity. Also my Mother took her last breath in my arms with my daughter trying to give her CPR. Some might not count these things as a blessing, but I knew of the testamony of being saved by the grace of Jesus, they left behind. That is the most important move anyone can make in this life. It's not, I hope I make it. Salvation is a, I know so thing.

You got that right. I think that Tupperware was spring loaded. After the wife passed over, I got rid of all that stuff. I refused to use one of those Tupperware tea glasses. No matter how well one washed it, your milk or tea always tasted like dish detergent.

When I moved to and remodeled the homestead, I lined the kitchen wall above the counter vertically with tongue and groove (used) oak planking and then made horizontal shelving that I can just reach up and get what I want that is stacked neatly. My iron skillets hang on hooks on the oak planking adjacent to the range. I covered that part of the planking in plexiglass such that the planking still shows through. I have no over head cabinets at all and don't want any. My poor wife was so short that she left the cabinet doors open and I beaned the top of my head more times than I want to remember. LOL

Isn't it amazing how the old head catches all of those scrapes and knots. Whoo wee, those hanging flower pots. Lol. Those things are a no no around here. You're right about those Tupperware tumblers, no matter how well they were washed that still had a funky taste and odor, plus a greasy feeling. Those things were trashed long before the relationship was. Lol.

The day before my dad passed over, I loaded him into his car with his oxygen and took him to Baskin-Robbins then drove him down here to the Homestead and let him see his daddy's old farm (that somebody else still owns) and then came on down the road to this house and 2 acres that he built in 1946 but had to sell due to my mama's health. I promised him that I would buy this little place back some day. That was in 1997 and it took me until 2010, but I kept my promise. When he passed on, he smiled at me and said "I am ready". My dad went to church every time the doors were open and just this past summer, I felt like some of my obligation included going back to his church also. I am much into nostalgia and tradition.

I don't accept or abide by all of the man made rules of social conformity established by some faiths, including those of my Dad's Church. I have been in good stead with the CREATOR for a long time and I can read the Scriptures and worship GOD just as well here on the Homestead (usually out in Nature) as I can at Church, but my going is two fold:

. 1 to honor Dad's memory and his tradtions.

. 2 to set an example.

You folks have a good day, I need to do some chores.

What a nice way to part company for a season. You are blessed to have fulfilled your obligation. Some things are just meant to be. I don't fret over misfortunes like when I was younger. I just usually roll with them and get up and try again. Lol.

I have been doing a few chores off and on. Good day, AW.

Yes that is my main concern, the church and it's future. After all it was handed down to us.
