I need the Guardian Angel to keep on watching even after I awake and make sure old Arthur don't throw my coffee on the floor. I need to find my sunglasses. Got an eye appointment at the VA around the time the sun is highest in the sky and I am sure they will want to give me a case of the "wide eye" and DOG has proven to not be a very good truck driver. They would not even give him a driver's license and even if they did, he has no pocket for his wallet.
I hate that stuff they drop into your eyes to dilate them. My eye doctor gives out little fake sunglasses that do no good, especially if you have to drive a distance. Good luck at the VA.

For lala,
These snow horses will make you ashamed of your childhood snowmen
We can't snowboard, we can't ski, we can't make a decent snowman or even a half-decent snow angel. But these crazy-talented snow sculptors somehow managed to carve out four hulking, realistic-looking stallions into a hillside in northeast China as part of a snow sculpture festival there at the end of December. This photo of their masterpiece from that event, which has started going viral online now, perfectly captures the magic of the artists’ creation. It's the largest horse sculpture in the world, and these artists did it all in plummeting temperatures while their toes and fingers were going numb. Color us impressed ... and ashamed of our sad lack of talent.[Source]

I would love to see all their sculptures. These horses are beautiful.
Those sculptures were beautiful. Too bad they will melt. Oh, well, beauty is ephemeral, isn't it.

Good mornin Abeliever. Beautiful day. Sunny Blue. Yet with a moroseful twist.
The ONE that rejected me and my sisters for years, from a hospital bed still brings us tears. He was never there now he requests we be there. If all goes as planned surgeons will remove one of his feet today. Years of self abuse and ignoring diabetes and 73 years old have him in pretty bad shape right now.
Removing the heel from his foot a week ago has failed to bring a staph infection under control. My sister still worships him. Bless her heart.
The onlyway I could force myself to go visit was see it all from the perspective that he is just a sick possibly dying old man that wants me there for support...how could I deny that, right?
My mother walked away from her children. I do agree one cannot so easily forgive or forget. I would say though since he is an old decrepit man show him compassion. No one should die alone. You'll then find closure knowing that you were the better man and not like him. You have walked a rough road it appears, just remember somebody somewhere else might have been down a similar one. Enjoy the sunshine. We sure a a bright sun here today. Many Blessings to you:)

I think I understand your situation. I was that "ONE" long, long ago. I did not visit. I closed the door. But now I wonder if I should have made a different decision. We cannot control others, only ourselves. A simple act of forgiveness may have kept my conscience clear. Now there is no turning back time nor tide. My advice to you is to follow your heart. Love and Prayers from Lala

Too funny.
Haha. I swear, I think that dump was deliberate. Did you see how the horse galloped right over to the tree and then so carefully change directions? ROFL. Bad day perhaps. Funny, I agree.

But time and tide has made you such a better person;) I gather this from how you care for both hubby and that grandson. You are one terrific person;) It's amazing how much we grow from all of our experience in life. I know it gives me strength when I need it. I have always taken everybody at face value as kind, truthful individuals, never conniving or manipulating. Boy, I learned quickly how you can be chewed up and spat out. This has changed me for the better, but sometimes I over think people and dump them if I feel like I'm being controlled and treated unfairly. I have trouble dealing with their personalities.

The best way for me to deal with people is to give them the benefit of the doubt, and to treat them compassionately. If there is a reason to be wary of a new acquaintance, the person will show their true colors relatively early in the relationship. If the person is not who they portend to be, then I let the relationship slip away, before they have had the opportunity to do harm. I prejudge no one. For example, I have one friendship that others find peculiar. This individual is "from the other side of the tracks," has been involved in unsavory relationships and events, and who appears on the surface to be "tough," even criminal in nature. Over the passage of time, this individual has shown me "another side" who he protects from most people from seeing. He has been helpful, loyal, truthful with me, so I see no reason to avoid him. I am not naieve, so I do keep my guard up somewhat, but this person has never shown me the side that most people see. The moral of my story is that I take each person as they relate to me, and don't let preconceived notions influence me.

Judge not lest though be judged. Also, no one is pretending to be wise on this thread. We just share our thoughts, experience and news. No one person is perfect.

My thought for the day: Why would you take the splinter from your neighbor's eye not to take the log from yours? ;) A great question. Nice day today. The birds have been enjoying it. So will I;)

I usually order one from Magee's Bakery. I love the tradition and culture of the region, but then again when my children were still at home we also celebrated Bastille day. Maybe that's why I am 48 and single?

Even with my own sunglasses and not the cheap throw-aways they gave me, it was a bit rough making the 30 miles trip back in that lovely sunshine everyone is so enjoying. I got the wide eyes and just scanning the posts until later tonight. Cataract replacement lenses are fine. One is 8 years old and the other is 5.

For any who have never had that done, they scrape the film off the back of the eye and install a fake lens. Immediately, better sight and no longer looking through what appears to be the bottom of a Coca Cola bottle. There is really no pain and the worst you feel is like someone dropped a small poece of something really cold in the corner of your eye. A piece of cake.. speaking of which.. Today is FAT TUESDAY... Let's eat. LOL You folks have a good day. I will be back when I can see better.

Being single isn't a bad thing, perhaps you are lucky. One can't always be impervious to the in laws a partner might bring with him or her. Just look at it this way ; if it gets too rough enjoy an intelligent conversation with yourself LOL, at least, you'll know you're right and not wrong. My 75 yr. old uncle who passed away several years ago said this: I come and go as I please, don't have to answer to anyone but myself and really not missing anything. Reckon he was correct; he hadn't lost anything when he expired. LOL.

Take the time to relax, even for a short time today friends and associates. There will be plenty of time tomorrow to take care of business, so try to make room for some play-doh this afternoon. Watching a movie with family and friends will help you to forget about your, um, what was it, that something or another in the real world for a few hours.

I love my life. I have my piano, work, friends, lots of books and my grown children. I like my weirdness and embrace it.
