I wish I'd chosen another line of work like animal care. Working in a geriatric center scars one for life. It's a traumatic experience not being able to be by your dying pts side because you are unable to neglect the others. I had a patient wailing and crying my name for me to be there beside her, but the nurse said go do your round. By the time her daughter got to mean hour or so later, the patient was gone. Her last words...my name. It's difficult living with that memory. I'll dig ditches or clean critter poo before I'll go back. Restless here. Again.

I know where you are coming from and heard many cry out in the 2 years I visited the facility. But fortunately, I was able to be by the side of my father, mother, and wife as they passed over. I too am restless, and gave up on sleep for the time being and have biscuits in the oven. LOL Dog is taking care of my part of the zzzzzzzzs.

Saw my mother several days ago, her little short haired dog had a sweater because of the cold. It hadn't seen the children in over a year. She yelps yes, yes. We interpret it as dog language of course. Hehe. Dog will smell those biscuits soon enough. I bet. that tongue will start hanging out. You have a pleasant morning with him and your breakfast. I smell that wood stove over here. It is wood isn't it?;) Anyway, you have a good one.

Good Morning to the bird threaders minus one. Not quite so cold here this morning, but snowing some more. A good day for me to worship GOD at home.

I might get out Granny's old paperback Hymnal from 1923 and hum along with "Precious Memories", or just go to Youtube and listen to Willie doing it.

Good morning, bird threaders. I am heartbroken about one of our own's demise. I am thankful that I didn't respond to him with a nasty retort. Life is fragile, isn't it. It amazes me that I have such deep feelings for people I have never met. I was never an online chatter, but I was attracted to this site because of the diversity of conversational topics. I have been listening to Willie recently. My favorite is "Blue Eyes Crying."
The Good Lord has given me a reprieve, at least for the moment. I almost left this world 10 months ago, and had many months of "touch and go" life, hanging by a thread. I got some further bad news when I went for my doctor appointments. I now have some congestive heart failure and have to go to a cardiologist. I think that my bout with illness this past spring and summer took more of a toll than I realized. I am just hoping to stay on this earth long enough to raise our little guy, then I will gladly go on. I pray that Our Creator will honor my request. If not, I hope that our little guy will be raised by a friend who is closer to me than some of my relatives. Anyway, I have placed this problem in the hands of the Lord, and I will have to trust in his Care.

Good morning Ancient Wolf and birdthreaders, minus one. Still haunting me that he is here one day and gone the next. It will take some getting use to.

I just poured my second cup of hot java after going out to feed the birds. It is cold, snow on grass, trees, cars, but not on the road. Thankfully. I hope all the Super Bowl partiers will not have to worry about that tonight. Hopefully. I am staying home. I don't feel like partying at all. I really don't care who wins this year and I have about seen all the commercials anyway. I will find me a good movie to watch and curl up on the couch and stay warm. I am truly heartsick and don't feel like doing anything. Funny how a few months ago I would not have been phased by this news, yet all day yesterday I felt like I have these last couple years losing friends and loved ones. A little empty and at a loss for someone I really didn't know but had grown to care about. Ole fart. I miss him already.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. I hope that white stuff is done.

Good morning to one and all!
That sounds like an excellent way to worship God today, AW. I will give honor and thanks to God in my own way as well, as I do every day.
Funny you should mention Utube; I woke up this morning with the final scene from, "Places in the Heart", playing through my head. I got up and found it on Utube. I think there is profound meaning in that final scene; everyone is there - those who have wronged and been wronged; past and present - all are seated in God's house taking communion, as the choir sings, "In the Garden", and the preacher reads from the 13th chapter of 1st Corinthians on love.
This is one of my favorite movies. If there's anyone who hasn't seen it, I highly recommend it.
Everyone stay warm and have a great day today!

I worked with geriatric patients, among other age groups, and it is always hard to let go. In my case, years ago, some of those folks "adopted" me and I wouldn't have traded that experience for the world. I tried to brighten the day, and we had our fun moments as well. I was particularly fond of one fellow, and visited him long after I left the facility as a "worker.
We kept in touch for 20 years until he passed away. I still think of him, and some of the shenanigans that he pulled, including getting his sister to take him to my house for a cookout. He had me mix a coffee sombrero for him. I shut him off after two drinks, when he got so silly that he kept slipping out of his wheel chair.

Oh no lala, not more bad news. I prayed your health issues were behind you after all you have been through. I am so sorry. I hope they can keep it under control so you will be here long enough to fulfill that dream of raising your little guy. You have the right attitude though. Give it to God. HE will not fail you. I love you and don't want to lose you. I was so scared for you when you were in the hospital last year and happy our prayers were answered when you got to home. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I feel so blued out today over losing Teddy just when he had turned around and was letting the good come out. I guess in reality it was just in time and I,like you am glad our last comments to him were not of a hateful nature. I had really grown to like him allot. So sad.

Thanks HillLOgic, I will watch this even though I watch very few links and don't post them myself, but only offer suggestions. "In the Garden" was granny's favorite.

I surely hope that is the case. I would hate for Kentucky to "catch up" with some of the weirdness that occurs elsewhere. I take pride in being a 'hick" LOL
Me, too. I "up and left"a lucrative career to come to KY. But I did find tons of work down here. Unfortunately, work here is either at the professional level, or working in the service category for minimum wage. It's hard for folks to find the in-between jobs. I was fortunate to have a profession where I could find work in nearly every state. I still miss working. I had to retire because of health reasons. I need to find something meaningful to occupy my time now. It's strange, though,because when I worked 40-=60 hours per week, I still found time for housekeeping, social activities, and numerous other things. Now, my day does not have these demands, but I have trouble finding time to complete my household tasks. Too much time on Topix. LOL

Game day USA. Superbowl kickoff countdown has started and Hempy has a lot of prep for our indoor tail gating. Have a good out there folks and we'll see ya'll later. Oh, Ol Hempburn has picked the 49ers to win.. being a bird person I probably should of went with the Ravens but my riding buddy picked them first and I refuse to agree with him, lol. So GO 49ers!

It was one of my Mom's too. I had to listen to it and it took me awhile to compose myself. Her favorite was by Elvis and then her favorite became Alan Jackson's. I had a good cry for her and then I thought of the obit I read and wondered what songs they played at the church he was so active in. Here it is for both of them:

In The Garden - Alan Jackson


I picked the one I thought he would have liked. I know which one my Mom liked. Ancient Wolf, you will enjoy the Western effect. Lala will love the horses. Now I am going to go do something useful, like clean out a closet. I have been trying to scale down on stuff I don't need anymore. Dress suits, heels, work bags and briefcases, clothes I can give to the shelter. I don't give to places that employees pick through first and then they sell. I let family see if they can use any of it and then it goes directly to those who need it at no cost. I am skipping the Super Bowl festivities, as I don't care who wins and I am not in a very festive mood anyway. I can't fake it either so I stay home when I feel like that as not to be a Debbie Downer. lol I could use some "Me" time anyway.

I hope you all have a good afernoon. OJG is almost settled in and will hopefully be joining us soon for some good conversations and an update on the middle east through her contacts. Belie and her will have some intersting debates. I miss those.

Where's Hempburn?

Spoke too soon. There he is...Good Afternoon Hempburn. If I was too choose, since I don't care this year, I would go with the BIRDS...Ravens from our part of the country. hahaha

Enjoy your Super Bowl.

Romantic and creative upsets are likely as the sensitive Moon clashes with unpredictable Uranus. If you go out tonight, keep alcoholic drinks to a minimum. You don't want to become overly emotional at the wrong time, so keep yourself in check. The potential for passion and excitement is strong, but remember that there is often a fine line or no line at all between feelings of love and hate.

haha, seen this at the side. Uranus won't get a chance to clash with this Moonchild, not going anywhere. I would probably get overly emotional at the wrong time. Not in the mood for passion and excitement right now but that last line is a killer. I have always believed there IS a fine line between love and hate. What a horescope to have. The ole fart loved to see querty post them. haha

Weird unexplained phenomenon...

'They're out of this world!': Mysterious purple spheres found in the desert spark speculation

Tuscon locals are baffled by the appearance of thousands of tiny, purple sphere that have appeared in the middle of a desert.

'We were taking photos around the area and we just.... I mean, how could you miss this?' Geradine said.'It was just like glittering in the sun.'
