WHO ARE YOU

WHO ARE YOU There are so many things about humans, or at least American Humans that I have always questioned. People will listen to educators and those in the field of medicine yet be in grave need of other advices from other professions and refuse it in fact refute it with anger. Have you noticed this? It is not at all uncommon for a teacher or just one very interested in correct English to let it be known that poor spelling is a big NO NO, and that poor use of adjectives and adverbs is a...

THIS IS NOT AUNTY KABU'S HOUSE

This little would be house guest must be Canadian and thinks he is at Aunty Kabu's house. No, no, this is Justi's house and I don't tolerate uninvited guests well. I have some real concerns at this moment. I miss my cat desperately and I am ready to give up my beloved 100 year old house for a new much smaller one. This house has holes no one knows where and even a room no one knows where the entrance to is. But back to the sisters, brothers or friends invasion. Earlier in the week I took a nap...

THINKING A BIT ABOUT GRANDPA TODAY

There were times that what he said made absolutely no sense to me until many years later. Some happenings I thought were scary but now I see they weren't. But one I remember vividly that I did not understand for years. I thought it was the saddest day in their lives but when I told my parents they just laughed and laughed, everybody in the family laughed except for Aunt Bessie who wanted the table that brought about the whole thing. When I stepped upon the porch I knew something was a miss.... Sign in to see full entry.

WHAT IS THE STATUS OF YOUR CLOSEST RELATIONSHIP

After having been involved in one helping capacity or another to various programs and types of addiction aid for many years I am seeing a new one in the making. It makes me sad to think of the possible ramifications. I am old enough to remember when the telephone rang you did not jump up and answer it until you heard whether it was two short rings or one long and one short, or what ever, it may be for your neighbor. If you wanted to die of something other than a natural death let you r mother... Sign in to see full entry.

HELLO, HELLO I AM HOME FREE AND OFF TO RUNNING AGAIN

I had two wonderful reports from my doctors yesterday. I do not need even glasses. My eyes are great. As for my regular doctor she was happy with me. My blood pressure was great, I had lost a couple of pounds and all was well. I came on here and read Taps blog about making Lasagna for the church and being as I am happy today it made me remember a moment in my life about Lasagna that I was sure was to ruin my relationship with George forever. We had not been dating for long and I was smitten.... Sign in to see full entry.

YES SIR I WOULD LIKE TO GO, THANK YOU GRAND PA

None of the other grandchildren spent much time with Grandpa. They thought he was too strict, and he was but that was not the real reason. They all had siblings to play with, I did not and besides I loved his stories and he loved the poems I wrote for him. Lets face it we were both friendless except for socially expected ones. So we formed an unlikely friendship I cherish to this day. "Mattie, could you spare the girl to ride along with me for awhile?" Grandpa asked my mama as he always did... Sign in to see full entry.

YOUR GRANDMOTHER WAS A BEAUTY

A little chair was kept under the Mulberry tree for grandpa when he came to the store. It was cool, I could sit on a stool near and watch the store and listen to his story telling. My grandpa had a handlebar mustash and a long white beard but today he was telling me about a young handsome man, some said so anyway. There came a time when Ma gave Joe and Jane each 80 acre plots of land out of her 300 acres. She said that left 80 for me and a home place of 60 acres for her. When grandpa wondered...

THAT'S WHAT MA TOLD ME

I learned about my Grandfather and his immediate family at about the age eight. I never learned anymore about any of his family any further back than his parents. He came to our store where I worked as a child. We were a store for mostly tenant farmers so we are not too busy. Grandpa would come sit for hours and tell stories about his family. He told me when he was age three his mother lost their land to Carpetbaggers because she could not pay the taxes after the war almost devastated all she... Sign in to see full entry.

UNCLE HENRY WAS MY GRANDPA

I was always taught to respect my elders. You did not cut-up with Grandpa. Many of the grandchildren did not get close to him because they attempted to pull things over on him, no way. He was a wise old man, patient as the day is long and determined. He was very interested in teaching the grandchildren about his country, his God and his role in it. You see we were not totally over the losses brought on by the Civil War. It was particularly bad in our area. We lived in one of the two counties in... Sign in to see full entry.

HUH, I CAN'T ABIDE LYING PREACHERS

I suppose it is about time I let some of my ancestors out of the bag as I so enjoyed Taps and others who have written of them. I do not have such an acute mind as our Taps has nor am I such an exciting writer but here goes anyway. This happened some sixty five or so years ago and the old man was eighty or so at the time. His name was James Henry Mayes, Jr and his father had been killed at Gettysburg without ever having seen his son Henry. He had been a wild child so the stories, and there were...

HELLO AGAIN

Hi all of you, hope you are doing well and having a good time today. It is overcast down here maybe we will get a nice slow rain we are in a drought. I went for my eye check up and the surgery was successful and all is well in that eye but it appears the other one is worse and I will go in two weeks for work on it. I learned a very strange thing. Of course only those things you don't know are strange. I had cataract surgery about 10 or so years ago and I, like 47% who have, cataract surgery have... Sign in to see full entry.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU

Thanks for your prayers and good wishes for April. Her husband has been found. So this is again a son and husband dead in an accident. God will see her through it. Your prayers are a great help in such a time. I am going in the morning for a check up on my eye. I truly think it is doing very well. I do love all of you and wish you a blessed day.

PRAYERS AND GOOD WISHES NEEDED DESPERATELY

I want to ask you for your prayers for a very brave woman who is in dire need of a miracle. She is a veteran who fell down a mountain in Afghanistan and was injured badly. She was married and they had four sons and a daughter. Her husband was also military and now she was discharged on disability and able to be together with her family.But soon after her husband and one son were killed in an automobile accident. That was several years ago. She remarried a couple of years ago. She had worked for... Sign in to see full entry.

FIRST PART TO THE EYE MYSTERY

Well I never cease to be astonished at what God has enabled man to do. I have been experiencing some symptoms that I may have the retina of the left eye beginning to detach. In two exams the doctor found something was covering the area where he suspected the detachment was. Today he cleaned the wast basket so to speak. He lasered away the junk from my synthetic lenses so he would have clear vision of the area. After the surgery he looked but was not sure. Next week he will gi ve it another look...

OH EXCUSE ME NOT EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT

Oh my I do see where all of you wanted to put me on the brush pile and burn me. I do not mean that as it appeared. I agree with you. Let me see if I can say this better. Yes I believe we should bomb them until not one ISIS is left standing. We being all the decent Nations of the World. Just what do I mean by love ISIS? Those families are indoctrinated from birth to have this sort of thinking. They are fed the Quran three meals a day. Little boys are being sent into battle as fodder daily. When...

GOOD MORNING

Today has opened, bright sunny and totally void of moisture. It is like a huge straw flower dry, sort of burnt orange and bristly. I have much to be thankful for I don't see light flashing off swords, or smoke from very large guns as those in the Middle East may be looking out at as the sun rises and ISIS rides over the horizon. I am thankful that I am awakening as a Christian who according to the Bible may be a victim of one of them one day, but I will never worship such a Satanic being that... Sign in to see full entry.

SAY WHAT

People all over the world are angry, very angry with the man who shot the beautiful Lion. I love animals. I am very sorry about this happening. I am far more concerned about thousands of people who have and are being beheaded. Infants being tossed up into the air to land on swords or being shot. Little boys being drafted into an army to be sacrificed. Little girls being sold as sex slaves and on and on...

HELLO AGAIN

Oh how delightful is the generation that follows the one you brought up to be the perfect people of the world. Loll Oh I enjoyed these teens to the very fullest. If I over did at all it was in having to much fun. They were so good about taking care of everything. But after they left I began having some white flashes in my eyes and I called my Ophthalmologist and he had me come in immediately. I have a retina trying to detach. It seems I am also having spikes in diabetes. I went into my regular... Sign in to see full entry.

HERE THEY COME GANGAN

Two adult children and one grandchild who is almost adult too are on their long trek to see Gangan and Papa. It is so great to know soon the house will be filled with hugs, kisses and lots of laughter. Another adult and grand will join these later in the week and fun will be enjoyed by all. This will be the first time I have not gone through and scrubbed bathrooms etc., before guests arrived. Not this time. I am in full bloom fibromyalgia attack which usually last 8-10 days.
