Words of Wisdom
"The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."
It's Sunday and I am counting days out of desperation
Hate this cast and the pills that go along with it lol
My son's friend broke his thumb and took his off by getting it wet so it was easy to cut off. Smart lol
I am tempted except my wrist will probably fall off. lol
Have A great day!!
HIS AND HER DIARY FOR THE SAME DAY:
Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep - I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.
Boat wouldn't start, can't figure out why.
Wish I had some ribbons for my hair today lol
It is turning out to be a very nice Saturday.
Summer has finally arrived and with the fans in the house, it's quite comfortable.
My wrist is holding so we shall see in a few days the outcome of it all.
Enjoy your day

You might have to think twice about this one. A blonde hurried into the emergency room late one night with the tip Of her ••••• finger shot off. 'How did this happen?' the emergency Room doctor asked her. 'Well, I was trying to commit suicide,' the blonde replied. 'What?' sputtered the doctor. 'You tried to commit suicide by shooting Off your finger?' 'No, Silly' the blonde said. 'First I put the gun to my chest, & Then I thought, 'I just paid $6, 000.00 for these implants... I'm not shooting myself in the chest.' 'So then?' asked the doctor. 'Then I put the gun in my mouth, & I thought, 'I just paid $3,000.00 To get my teeth straightened I'm not shooting myself in the mouth.' 'So then?' 'Then I put the gun to my ear, & I thought: 'This is going to make a Loud noise. So I put my finger in my other ear before I pulled the Trigger.
I think blondes and Newfoundlanders have the Luck of the Irish.
My wrist doesn't hurt much now but the pills sure did a job on my system cause its all upset.
And what a hassle to do things with one hand.
Try peeling a potato or cutting a tomato or putting on your under wear or fixing your hair.pffff! I feel like a comedian creating jokes on myself.lol
Next time someone asks me what's better, to hurt a leg or an arm and I'll definitely say a leg because you can sit doing things but without arms......geez!
All I can do is put meat into aluminum foil (which is also a trick to tear off the roll) season it add water and put in to bake. The rest someone else has to do.
I can still load the dishwasher.
and I keep looking outside longing to go out and play .
Well it's not to be for now so its nice nature shows me a flower or two to admire.
Weeds have stories behind them For example:
Morning Glory Seeds
- Drives out water - for heat accumulation in the stomach or intestines, severe constipation, abdominal distention, urinary difficulty (water is expelled through urine and stool).
- Unblocks the bowels and removes accumulations - constipation due to accumulation and stagnation of damp-heat in the stomach and intestines.
- Drives out phlegm and congested fluids - cough, wheezing, chest fullness.
- Expels intestinal parasites and reduces food stagnation - roundworm or tapeworm infestations and food stagnation.
Dosage and Preparation Notes
- Dosage: 4.5-9g
Whatever I see and do these days I see only my Amigoes who love

This is a nice garden song.
Today i can sit and enjoy it but my husband caught something at the hospital and is very sick.
He has a very bad cold and who gets them this time of year?
So between he and I we make a swell couple.
So no garden for us thats for sure lol
I slept through most of yesterday. The pills are strong and keep away the pain.Today I need
less of them.
My husband was up and about more than yesterday.
but he will also need another day or so sick leave.
At least we are sick now together .
More things to share lol
He made us a nice spaghetti sauce and I helped myself to a bowl but my little dog jumped up.
She was hungry so I let her eat it and then made myself another bowl.
She has her portion in her bowl but she wants to share mine instead lol
Precious little girl.
Nothing much more to say or do
I can't even knit now lol
Well this song hits home especially today.Yesterday I was working as usual Picking up the branches of tree cuttings. I was hoping to feed them to a small fire.
As chance would have it I slipped on the mud.
We have cement walk way and then about a two foot muddy embankment raised by wood ties.
I slipped right there and fell on my shoulder and arm and broke my wrist on the cement .I knew cause it cracked. The pain and shock that followed showed me how delicate I have become.
My son heard the screams and came running then my husband.
I tried to change a bit before we charged out to emergency.
It took the rest of the day to fix me at the Surrey Memorial, which I have to admit was a very
hard working group of dedicated men and women.
They did things different than before .After xrays showed I did darn good job on my wrist they gave me an IV which I guess put me into a light sleep.My husband and son said I was talking and screaming but when I came to I remembered nothing. Apparently I said something which made the doctors laugh. Who knows what I was talking about lol My boys both cringed watching me suffer.
My blood pressure sky rocketed. The arm ached badly coming home.
Now I have to go to the doctor every week to make sure it is setting right, bummer
The morphine and other pills they gave me were strong and I needed them but right now it feels a lot better . Thank God .
Next to me was on old man who came in with a bad heart. He was dying and his son was sitting beside him waiting I guess since there was a no revival order for him.
The nurse said the day before they had 30 kids come in with boo boos and today me lol
The way I fell I was lucky not to have banged my head or broken my neck.
One split second and your world changes forever.
I am always afraid of this hill of mine.Its not for older people especially when wet.
It was just a question of time and the time came. lol
After all this today my husband seems to have picked up a very bad sore throat from the hospital
So he too is out of commission.
When they asked me if I was ever at that hospital before, I told them no.I don't like doctors or hospitals. You come in with one problem and go home with 100 more lol
Well I better not push it and go rest before the wrist begins to act up AGAIN.
Hope everyone else had a better week end. lol
hugs to all
Well This is my today song I was singing while still working with these horrible blackberries.
Nothing kills them.
No matter what the world will say about me, I know your love will always see me through.
I love you for a 100,000 reasons but most of all I love you cause you are you.:0
Hunh! Power washing, prickles wood burning etc.... and still I worry what the world will say about me and think about the love that keeps me still doing all this stuff. lol
Who cares. I pay my taxes lol
In Quebec people are dying from the heat and here in BC we are still wearing sweaters and fleecy's.
I filled up a baby pool with cuttings and bagged them today and now the pool is empty to fill up with water for the dogs.
Maybe the lawn mower will see its way up the hill and do a but of something. The rain is not helping things. Usually by this time the soil is rock dry and the grass is burnt by the sun but not this year.
I never complained before when I had flat land but this is beyond what is acceptable.
Needs young people to do this stuff.
Well as long as I am making headway. lol
Hope everyone has a great day.
This song is an oldie I raised my children with.
We used to travel a lot and like all families, to keep the mood lively in the car, we would sing all kind of songs. The kids really enjoyed pitching in, so I was one lucky Mama.
One of my favorite was Perry Comos' Hot Diggity Dogitty Boom What you do to me.
It was great because you could act it out and the kids got a kick out of it.
As the miles stretched out, time flew and before we knew it, we were at the next rest stop.
Singing , we would leave one valley after another, see dawn in one and dusk in another. We would leave our smiles behind with the spring and promise to return on our way back.
The valleys changed with the months and driving back through them, was like driving through new places, we had never seen before, in the fall.
I can understand why truckers love their job behind the wheel, because on the road, you leave everything behind and ahead, lies nothing but adventure and the impossible.
You never say goodbye or adieu because the patient Red River Valley will always be waiting your return.
A married couple were asleep when the phone rang at 2 in the morning.
The wife (undoubtedly blonde), picked up the phone,
Listened a moment and said 'How should I know,
that's 200 miles from here!' and hung up.
The husband said, 'Who was that?'
The wife said, 'I don't know, some woman
wanting to know if the coast is clear.'
What did the blonde ask her doctor when he told her she was pregnant?
'Is it mine?'
Returning home from work, a blonde was
shocked to find her house ransacked and burglarized.
She telephoned the police at once and reported the crime.
The police dispatcher broadcast the call on the radio,
And a K-9 unit, patrolling nearby was the first to respond.
As the K-9 officer approached the house with
his dog on a leash, the blonde ran out on the
porch, shuddered at the sight of the cop and
his dog, then sat down on the steps.
Putting her face in her hands, she moaned,
'I come home to find all my possessions stolen.
I call the police for help, and what do they do?
They send me a BLIND policeman.'
This was a great movie and I think will always be a great movie in the fiction category. http://www.thailandbytrain.com/RiverKwai.html#history
Its about British Officer POW's refusing to do hard labor for the Japanese but then they decide to accept to build a train bridge over the River Kwai. Meanwhile one man escapes and brings back British soldiers to blow up the bridge. Well what ensued was indeed madness.
The whistling marching song really kept the mens' morale up in the movie .
It is supposed to take Place in Thailand after the surrender of Singapore, in WW2.
Japanese soldiers left a lasting impression on Singaporeans as suicide fighters.
They would fight till death and never surrender. Any one who had encounters with them was left eternally marked by fear.
After the war, the Japanese wives and Mothers found out the truth about how their husbands and Fathers behaved during the war. They could not believe the dishonorable stories that were told by many women, from different countries, forced to become comfort women for their men and the atrocities they committed. Most of the ugly truth was kept away from their ears.
War is hell and it really doesn't matter which side you are on.
We send out innocence and it comes back broken,hard and changed forever.
No man needs to see what these men are forced to look at every day, for what can become a lifetime.
Life without pity or remorse or fear.
Men, cut off from their feelings, to do ............a job.
Broken men,some of whom are mere babies themselves, who feel lucky to come home at all.
We keep on trecking fighting for our children, our nation and for the love of mankind.
So what are the other countries fighting for? Imperialism? This is what they charge other countries with and yet, given a chance, do the same thing.
Do they see a cure for poverty and hunger, as death?
Has the meaning for the word POWER changed?
Today, it seems the word means keeping fear and hate alive not only in foreign lands but in your own people.
Power to destroy, to benefit the economy, so it can spend to rebuild, providing jobs
or maybe not rebuild if the damage done is too great.
It seems insane to flaunt power, to cure poverty and hunger, by slaying millions of innocent people, when the power they should be undertaking, is to curb growing populations through birth control.
With science today, it makes me shudder what other ways are being sought to do this?
And so we whistle and keep on trecking..........and pray.
I love this old Mitch Miller Song. The melody just cheers you up usually until I got to singin it with different words, which I caught myself doing yesterday.
Oh dear , love to tax you, love to tax you, my dear old voter. lol
Now what possessed me to do that?
This song is supposed to be the Florida State Song, however some of the old verse was
seen as racist some what, since it referred to plantations where black people worked.
But the melody is catchy and I guess suitable to make many a verse to go along with it having nothing to do with politics.
Now this is mans' best friend doing his job.
Good Dogs Very GOOD Dogs.

"DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE AFTER DEATH?" THE BOSS ASKED ONE OF HIS EMPLOYEES.
"YES, SIR," THE NEW EMPLOYEE REPLIED.
"WELL, THEN, THAT MAKES EVERYTHING JUST FINE," THE BOSS WENT ON. "AFTER YOU LEFT EARLY YESTERDAY TO GO TO YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S FUNERAL, SHE STOPPED IN TO SEE YOU!
IT WAS PALM SUNDAY AND, BECAUSE OF A SORE THROAT, FIVE-YEAR-OLD JOHNNY STAYED HOME FROM CHURCH WITH A SITTER. WHEN THE FAMILY RETURNED HOME, THEY WERE CARRYING SEVERAL PALM BRANCHES. THE BOY ASKED WHAT THEY WERE FOR. "PEOPLE HELD THEM OVER JESUS' HEAD AS HE WALKED BY."
"WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT," THE BOY FUMED, "THE ONE SUNDAY I DON'T GO, HE SHOWS UP!"
ONE EASTER SUNDAY MORNING AS THE MINISTER WAS PREACHING THE CHILDREN'S SERMON, HE REACHED INTO HIS BAG OF PROPS AND PULLED OUT AN EGG. HE POINTED AT THE EGG AND ASKED THE CHILDREN, "WHAT'S IN HERE?" "I KNOW!" A LITTLE BOY EXCLAIMED. "PANTYHOSE !! "
SUPPORT A FAMILY
THE PROSPECTIVE FATHER-IN-LAW ASKED, "YOUNG MAN, CAN YOU SUPPORT A FAMILY?"
THE SURPRISED GROOM-TO-BE REPLIED, "WELL, NO. I WAS JUST PLANNING TO SUPPORT YOUR DAUGHTER. THE REST OF YOU WILL HAVE TO FEND FOR YOURSELVES."
FIRST TIME USHERS
A LITTLE BOY IN CHURCH FOR THE FIRST TIME WATCHED AS THE USHERS PASSED AROUND THE OFFERING PLATES.
WHEN THEY CAME NEAR HIS PEW, THE BOY SAID LOUDLY, "DON'T PAY FOR ME DADDY I'M UNDER FIVE."
CLIMB THE WALLS
"OH, I SURE AM HAPPY TO SEE YOU," THE LITTLE BOY SAID TO HIS GRANDMOTHER ON HIS MOTHER'S SIDE. "NOW MAYBE DADDY WILL DO THE TRICK HE HAS BEEN PROMISING US."
THE GRANDMOTHER WAS CURIOUS. "WHAT TRICK IS THAT?" SHE ASKED.
"I HEARD HIM TELL MOMMY THAT HE WOULD CLIMB THE WALLS IF YOU CAME TO VISIT," THE LITTLE BOY ANSWERED.
THE WATER PISTOL
WHEN MY THREE-YEAR-OLD SON OPENED THE BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER, HE DISCOVERED A WATER PISTOL... HE SQUEALED WITH DELIGHT AND HEADED FOR THE NEAREST SINK.
I WAS NOT SO PLEASED.
I TURNED TO MOM AND SAID, "I'M SURPRISED AT YOU. DON'T YOU REMEMBER HOW WE USED TO DRIVE YOU CRAZY WITH WATER GUNS?"
MOM SMILED AND THEN REPLIED..... "I REMEMBER!!"
LITTLE JOHNNY ASKED HIS GRANDMA HOW OLD SHE WAS.
GRANDMA ANSWERED, "39, AND HOLDING."
JOHNNY THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT, AND THEN SAID, "AND HOW OLD WOULD YOU BE IF YOU LET GO?"

Ed Sullivan sure new how to pick the next stars. Connie Francis was one of them.
I still enjoy her songs and they apply to todays' life and living.
I don't think very many singers can compare to these old ones, who never rushed to tell you a story in melody and voice tone.
Who's Sorry Now sure hits the spot today because I am sure every one of us is sorry to watch how politics and government is affecting all our lives.
Could we have made better decisions choosing better leaders and listened between the lines of what was being said to us? Could we have asked better questions? Could we have asked for less money to be spent so we pay less taxes?
Is being given the right to vote at a young age before one has a chance to know or have a taste of life and living the right thing to do? Should we allow elementary schools invade the minds of our childrens' way of thinking instead of allowing them to learn and come to their own conclusions?
Should Pressure groups be allowed to influence votes?
Should potential leaders sell out the ethics and morals of a country for a vote?
and if we see this, should we see this as an example of who not to vote for?
After all....No is practically the very first word we hear and learn apart from Mama.lol
Yes I am sure we all can relate, in one way or another to this song, if not in love, then in some other aspect of our lives.
But in the end, is it not good to realize that we can be sorry and correct things before it is too late?
It seems our planet is telling us something these days and we should give it the attention it deserves and stop our scientists from playing with nature like with that
Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland experimenting with the BIG BANG theory, changing weather experiments and experiments which result in slowing the rotation of our planet and then blaming the public for their way of living and global warming, when in fact, nothing is further from the truth.
How is one to judge today, right from wrong, when truth is denied us?
Today some are sorry and some sorrier than others and some, who are the cause of every ones'
suffering, are not sorry at all. They live in a Marie Antoinette world, where they believe cake is readily available.
Yes, we are sorry to see so much damage done, so much blood spilt.
In yester year it was because of the sword and today, through nature rebelling and continuous wars brought on by old dogma, people do not want to let go of.
There are no winners in war, for God takes no sides in battle.
In facing your enemy, you stand alone.
God's job is to forgive because he knows man still does not understand the value, the morals and ethics, of peace.
Man is not ready to let go his fight for survival. He is born of clenched fist ready for battle until, weary, he finally opens it, for God to enter his soul and whisk it away to another place, where it can finally understand the true meaning of freedom, love and trust.
The thing about man is that he is always sorry and he is always ready to try harder in face of the same enemy........ himself. lol
Have a great Day!!!
Apart from the fact that I love Mario Lanza because he sings so many songs that I like, one of the being BELOVED, this video of the Lords Prayer is awesome.
I remember I used to sing it and today, I almost forgot the melody.
Not much is being kept as a tradition these days and some things just should not be forgotten.
This is one Prayer that is beautiful to sing into the heavens to God and the Angels who serve him. I remember how nice it was to begin your day at school with the Lords Prayer, The National Anthem and God save the Queen. It sorta began your day knowing who you are.
Monday is again cloudy but the rain held off.
I went to Save on Foods and they sold this package of old chicken they said, for 5 dollars.
I thought I lucked out because the best soup bouillon is made out of old chicken. The meat is hard and hardly worth eating but the soup that comes out of it is un comparable.
When I opened the package, I found out I had not one chicken in it but three. I couldn't believe my luck, when today they charge so much for everything including chicken feet and chicken gizzards. We used to make pate out of chicken livers as well as use them for stuffing and chicken feet my Mom used to get for free. They are also good for soup and quite tasty if you over look the fact that they walk everywhere lol (I don't buy them) but 5 Bucks for three chickens is a deal.
Then I also came across some very chubby looking, small, fresh salmon, from the Pacific Ocean.
I don't particularly care for salmon as many people do unless it is baked in curry, black pepper and lemon, but I could not resist this package of two.
When I got home I took one and filleted it, covered it in salt and it is making me some very nice lox under a heavy plate in the fridge. I can't wait to eat it in 5 days, with phili cheese and bagels.
Sometimes you just have a craving. I still have to turn it every day and press it but all good things are worth waiting for.
Maybe today I will bake the other one since we have not had fish in a while.
And so my week has begun.
God Bless Every one.

My husband's favorite hobby "passe temp favorie" of late is to watch the Chelsea Lately nightly show, with her co host Chewy...
This of course much to my chagrin, since I find her offensive in many ways...until the other night.
I decided to curl up next to hubby on the couch and watch to see what he found so fascinating about this lady, who hails from friendly NJ..
Needless to say my ear drums burnt at the vocabulary and language being used during the show...
My Dad, God bless his soul, would have turned in his grave had he known what his daugther was watching and listening to and yes...laughing at the jokes...
He would surely say to me:
Boy have times changed lol . His type of girl was of the Maureen OHare type.
I used to like his taste in women.
But I could see him sitting and watching Chelsea, as he did Johnny Carson.
When I was little I could hear him and my Mom giggling watching him.
In those days Play boy was a very hush hush magazine, you bought for the jokes
and of course the articles. lol (not the pictures ) and they never showed their parents this magazine even as grown ups. lol
I must admit however, that the Chelsea show was funny, in an odd sort of way... and the double meanings "ententes" become more subtle if not anticipated,
as you watch her perform this 30 minutes...linguistically, semi pornographic
Enjoy the show....

David Beckham Reveals Victoria's New Baby Will Be
Speaking of Royalty even they have problems putting their children into Posh English schools .
This soccer family was said to be too working class. So in the end were they allowed to register?
And if David Beckham was a Muslim would the kids, especially if they were girls, ignore the school uniform and the not wearing of head covers ?
I guess it would not be a mere question of passing an entrance exam here.
This is interesting to know the answer to and if the school could refuse a Muslim entrance to its' school and refuse the uniform changes forced upon it by a Muslim religion, then why can Fifa not refuse, and
Christian Churches etc...not refuse to changes forced upon them?
There is supposed to be, I am told, lol, a separation of church and state.
Uniforms and especially motorcycle helmets rules should be equal or else it defeats the purpose of making these laws and rules.
However women liberation groups used the same kind of pressure to enter tavern establishments to promote Womans' Rights as equal to men.
Women and men are equated to being a human species.
In this case it was a good thing because taverns promoted hidden alcoholism and women could be alcoholics as equally as men could and with gender mixing such as with gay people.....
well...... it gets complicated. lol
Religion is a personal private thing you do at home and yet here we are being forced to change our ways because it offends someone but we are not protected against our offense to other peoples beliefs.
How does this work?
We really need to make changes in our laws so they are clearer in meaning.
Whats good for one, should be good for another.
When William becomes King and Knights David Beckham, as the Queen did Elton John, Sean Connery and Mr Black, will their kids then be posh enough for their posh schools, even in burkas?
Funny all this........ isn't it?
Have a great Day!

I found this learned Mans' lectures to be very interesting.
Dr. Michio Kaku is asked to make many speeches by very important organizations.
There is an introduction the first little bit of the video you could skip to get to the actual Doctors' lecture.
That too takes a little time to listen to but I find it worth it.
It makes me wish I was an expert in physics.
So grab a cup of coffee sit back and enjoy.
Have a great day:)

Many can go home now excited over having an encounter with a royal.
never looked better.
