Looks like a slow day. We have the pioneer festival this weekend. Maybe I'll go learn to churn butter.

@Missisppi Man.. I don't put much faith in preachers and teachers who's main objective seems to be the big business of "church". A poster on this thread a couple years back tagged some of those as "Pastor Fat Wallet". LOL
From my perspective, GOD is everywhere and I can and do worship daily better out in HIS Creations than I can in some large man-made building with man-made rules for maintaining social conformity for the clique.
My deceased wife is buried at a small country Christian church about 45 miles from here that overlooks a creek and I will join her someday and I hope GOD sees fit for that to be later. Like the Imposter, I don't fear death but my biggest fear is being a helpless invalid with stinky drawers.
you folks have a good day. Dog made it back from his favorite tree some time ago.
Ya know, AW, that part about being an invalid -stinky drawers or not, scares me too!! At that point a person can't even protest if a med is causing problems. And who's gonna listen and who's gonna even care enough?

I had an older Jewish patient one time. The employees left her full tray sitting in front of her and went home. As I came on shift, I noticed her and her full tray. First, I detected what was and wasn't kosher. I knew that she needed to eat. She was so frail. Patiently, I stood over her and fed or various bites of the different courses not the same thing at one time. I did not shovel it at her and let her take her time chewing. Unfortunately, her condition deteriorated. This was the only evening that she had been in my care.
I think, the best we can do is stay active both physically and mentally. If our health does decline keep power of attorney in mind. It is not a burden to most children because if my Dad was in the same situation, his care would be a priority. Private care is so much better, but not as affordable. I have seen so many cases of neglect. Patients' crying and being neglected both intentionally and unintentionally from lack of staff. I live with the good memories and the sad. As one patient passed she kept calling my name, her family came to get me. Unfortunately, I was with other bedfast patients who needed personal care as well. What I learned from the experience, live each day as if it were the last and love as if there will be no tomorrow:)

@Imposter.. Your prior post to Miss E Font included the slang term "What the Sam Hill". I always like to use Google to see where some of those various terms originate.
There were several possibilities, but the one I liked the most is when Ky. Governor Buckner sent his adjutant (Sam Hill) to Pike County to investigate the Hatfield-McCoy feud and newspapers nationwide reported "What will Sam Hill find"?... Interesting.
I never thought about that.... Sam Hill, I always thought the hill part was a way to keep from saying H E double-toothpicks. LOL
Never thought about the Sam part.
I had several classes at UK with a Hatfield girl that was from over around the WVa line. She claimed to be descended from the Hatfield clan that was involved in that famous feud. Man she was a looker, big tall girl, she had legs that went all the way up to her neck.
Red headed and just as mean as she was pretty. Man we had a time down there.

Misty I go to a retirement home quite a bit to see a dear old friend. I often help them feed other patients while I'm there if its around an eating time. The nurse aids do the best they can but they had a real hard time making time to feed this one little lady, because she ate real slow, she was so skinny it would just about tear your heart out. I would sit there as long as it took until she ate what she wanted. They ended up putting one of those surgically placed feeding tubes right in her little belly. She up and died not long ago.
It looks like this great country of ours could find a better way to care for the very people that worked there butts off making it great.

Our nation is only as good as it treats its elderly and children.

Oh my Lord! Hahahaha I know better that, and you do to. I've never known a redhead in my life that wasn't sharp of tongue and wild in the....

I better quit while I'm ahead. LOL

I think I'll do something constructive and drive over to the retirement home and see old Sam, maybe whip his butt in a game of spades or two.
I know better than that too, the old geezer might have a physical problem or two but his mind is still as sharp as a two edged sword.
Good evening to you all!

Nursing facilities ... I went 3 times during the week and twice on Sundays for 2 years and still commuted 35 miles a day one way to work .... more stories than I even want to think about. The worst is when the loved ones experience toxic shock from failing kidneys and all they can do is continously say "aaaaaayyyyyyyyyyeeeeeee ". People that can do that type of work have my greatest admiration.

Civil War tidbit.. Union General William (nicknamed "Bull" due to his stature) Nelson, a Kentuckian (Nelson County and Camp Nelson in Jessamne County bears his name) lost the Battle of Richmond Kentucky and 2000 Union soldiers were held prisoner on the Madison County Courthouse lawn. Later, when blaming that loss on a subordinate (Jefferson C. Davis and not the Confederate President) he was mortally shot in the Galt House in Louisville.

Per Google the H E double-toothpicks is the primary use for that slang term. Another is a grocer named Sam Hill in Prescott Arizona that had so many items on his shelves the people claimed "what the Sam Hill". I just like the one related to the Hatfield-McCoy feud since it is a Kentucky story.
