Sorry Misty eyed, I just went on a few runs with a big ole burly friend I use to call my bodyguard. He was like having another brother. Grew up together. I had said I would like to get away for a few days and he jokingly said come on you can be my co-pilot. So I did. He thought I was to "foo foo" for a road trip. I proved him wrong. Had the time of my life, met some great people, seen some beautiful country in other states. I miss that big ole lug. He died about 10 years ago.
I am an Army Brat and retired recently after 30 years with the Dept of Defense. If I had my do overs, I would have put ten more in. I miss it all from time to time. I am too young to retire. But I am enjoying it. Just need a partner to walk off into the sunset with. haha
My brother put in six years with Army Reserve as a medic. I have an ex uncle if you will served in Vietnam. We might age, but that doesn't mean we can't feel young. I had an elderly lady in a wheelchair clobber me with her big handbag one time. LOL. Vivacious little Lady. She loved life and sure did get around and did not like to go to bed...Hehe. As for getting a partner...if you're still feeling young Anything can happen;) ;) when you least expect it. Sorry once again for being too far off base...

You got that right. That is why I said "good" bat story. All those diseased bats in Ky and Indiana last year was spooky. They serve their purpose like the bees we take for granted.

You be careful with that sugar drop. I left you some stuff to keep your busy for a little while. haha

I hope you feel better.

Don't be sorry, it took me back to visit a memory of a good friend lost to me among a lot of friends and family I have had to learn to live without. What don't kill you makes you stronger.

There are some little ole ladies out there that just have nothing but piss and vinegar in them. Lively as all get out. I love to watch that Betty White show where the seniors punk the youngsters. It is hilarious. Some lame moments, but always gives me a laugh.

I hope you feel better soon. Have you tried eating apples and oranges. And I know, Yoplait is colored and sweetened with beet juice. All those natural sugars should help. Try to have a nice evening...I wish you better health.

Kentucky dog makes national news:

Dog rescued from frozen pond

He is a beautiful dog. Got to love firefighters when they risk their life for animals like humans. God Bless them all. Loving that new show called Chicago Fire. I went to all the "Great Chicago Fire" ruins and museums when I went there for a conference once. Seen alot the short week I was there. Crazy place, but fun for a week. I wouldn't want to live in the fast lane. lol

My partner has French ancestors so I try to stay on his good side. I'm afraid he might've already put a spell on me.Lol. To each of you a goodnight. I have a baby who needs my assistance. Really worried about Nope. She sure is sick today. I've known so many with that dreadful diabetes and heart problems. Hopefully Spring will be here soon and we can enjoy the weather and the gifts coming from the ground;) Birds, bees, everything. The renewal of life...I always loved "The Rose" by Bette M. Conway Twitty did a nice version as well. Arrivederci.

No, it wasn't about the voodoo queen:

Polk Salad Annie" is a 1968 song written and performed by Tony Joe White. It was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Its lyrics describe the lifestyle of a poor rural Southern girl and her family. Traditionally, the term to describe the type of food highlighted in the song is polk or poke salad, a product of pokeweed. Its 1969 single release peaked at Number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

I don't blame you. I wouldn't mess with no traditions no matter what they are. It is mystifying though. I loved New Orleans. I would love to go back.

I hope Spring is around the corner like predicted. Have a good night and if you can't sleep come back and chat. I leave you my favorite:

The Rose - Bette Midler


Have a peaceful night.

well Good Night folks, I think I am going to go see if I can find something to chase Arthur out of the house for a few hours. If the liniment don't help, maybe some blackberry brandy will. if nothing else, both of those will warm my outtards and innards.

One of my favorite Super Bowl ads in case you missed it.

Farmers Tribute: So God Made A Farmer. Paul Harvey


I loved listening ot Paul Harvey. Farming is some hard work too. Sadly a lot of farmland is turning into neighborhoods and strip malls. Glad there are still plenty where I can drive out and see some big operations. God Bless our farmers.

Good morning, everyone. I slept as well as Roaming does, and here I am, once again. This thread is like a magnet--even if I resist, it pulls me to the keyboard. The only thing stronger is the bed, which is right behind me. So when I hit my forehead on the keyboard, which I frequently do, I just mozey over to the bed and drop right in. Stein is already there, snoring away. I'm going to have to kick him off so that I can make the bed.
Yes, sometime sleep eludes us all. More this week than most times. I hope you sleep better.
