I make notes to me and then I ignore them many times. I have the habit now, when I misprint something or the printer gives out of ink in the middle of a page, I cut the page in quarters and put them here in front of my keyboard. I had to clean up the mess before I shot the picture (HA). The first picture Sherry thought I was taking a picture of the mess!
Okay, this is what it looked like!
(The note paper is here above my keyboard, I have neatened up a little, you see my round-to-it, my OOORAH pin from Woody, and my Titanic pen from Shirl’s last trip)
I make lists too, sometimes I follow them. Thing is I need reminders and guides to follow, even though I use them just as a jumping off point. Just like my Blog.
I read a comment by Fred the other day on a blog from Wisconsin either Mel or Dar’s. Where he said as a preachers son he enjoyed going to the member’s houses on Sunday afternoon to visit. That brought back so many memories. It seems we boys invited ourselves to each other’s houses without the parents being consulted and they all took it in stride. I know I have had boys stay and eat with us that mom did not know were coming, but she always handled it.
In High Shoals, NC (Dad’s only country church) I had a ball going home with the farmers kids. In Valdese it was a pleasure to go to the Page’s house. They had a pony and a small farmette, probably 3 acres, that is a guess.
In Missouri when Sherry and I were in Kirksville we went home many times with the Conrad’s. I know I have mentioned them many times. What a thrill to visit with them, the most delightful family. Kenneth was the daddy rabbit and I learned a lot from him. Eilene was a strong beautiful lady, and could sing as well as any professional. The kids were great, there was Harry, Kenny, David & Robert then there was Glenda (now of Okeechobee, FL), Juanelle, Irma, Mary, Vickie & Lil. They were all a delight to be around. That was a funny thing when we went on a picnic together the kids got to eat our sandwiches and hot dogs and we got to eat roast, homegrown corn, beans etc.
Churches have always been part of our upbringing and lives. Although many of my beliefs have changed and I have become more liberal in my thinking, the basics are still there. I was raised with: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ I still think it is a good philosophy to live by.
(Some of you know Sherry sits across from me on her computer her area is(was) a little neater, now mine is the neatest!)
Thanks for coming by the log. (Make a note to come back please!)
