Friday, July 31, 2009


Tom was just hanging around with the rest of us...waiting for Mama and Ricky to arrive.

Doesn't this look like a great friendly and happy couple. Mama and Ricky are truly this and so much more...truly delightful people and what a wonderful couple. They manage to have fun whatever they do and where ever they go, I am sure. The "proof is in the pudding" as my grandmother used to say.
I also have to say that I have never seen more compatible couples than we all are...Ricky and Mama, Tom and Polly, Kevin and Marla, and Ken and I all fit together with our other halves like two peas in a pod...each half complimenting the other. God has so blessed us as couples with our life's soul mates.

Everyone just chatting and being glad to be part of our "get together" in Wheeling.

Checking out a picture Mama took on her camera. Interesting wouldn't you say?

Just had to share a picture of Mama's "Holy Cow" tattoo...if you look closely you will understand the name.

Marla didn't get left out of the fun as she got to try "it" on for size too!!

As much as it pains me to say this, I really think these girls are a bit on the ornery side and are definitely a hit on the fun side!!! Can you imagine what trouble they could get in to if left on their own!!! Can't bear thinking about it. lol
I honestly can not imagine having more fun than we did during our few hours together in Wheeling, WV and can't wait to do it again.
What wonderful memories we created in the short time we spent together...a time I personally will never forget.
Anne, I can't thank you enough for planning this get together and can't wait until our next one!!!!

I cannot wait until our next get together either! I do hope it's soon & maybe even more of us can meet next time. Thanks for sharing my friend. Love you & miss you, Marla

P.S. Helen was good enough to bring me home after our meeting. She was going to her sister's house which is on the way to my house... it saved Kevin a trip down. Thanks again Helen! You're a wonderful friend!

Miss America loses her hat in a bet...July 29, 2009 in Waynesburg, PA

Friday, July 31, 2009


There were no doubts what day it was Wednesday in Waynesburg, PA!!! Wednesday was Rain Day and as it has done on July 29 for 111 of the last 135 years, it rained. It started raining early and rained most of the day.
To be a success, it must rain on Rain Day. We got rain early and that meant all the pressure was off. The first few drops of rain officially fell at 5:26 am and were reported by a Waynesburg patrolman who was on routine patrol.
"What a great day," Waynesburg Mayor Blair Zimmerman said as he sat in the borough office fielding calls from people wanting to talk about the weather in Waynesburg. But even the rain failed to lessen the enthusiasm of the crowd which, attending a celebration called Rain Day, surely didn't expect sunshine.
"We've had a real good turnout, and the crowd seems to keep growing," the mayor said early in the afternoon. "Everybody seems to be having a good time."
The rain also meant Zimmerman won the traditional hat bet, which this year was made with Miss America 2009 Katie Stam of Indiana.

Stam had already sent Zimmerman a hat in advance, apparently knowing the odds were against her, Zimmerman said. He sported the pink ball cap throughout the day.


A pageant is held every year for Miss Rain Day...a big event in Waynesburg. This years Miss Rain Day is Miss Emily Block.

Miss Rain Day 2009 and her court

This statue in Hoopers Park on High Street in Waynesburg is dedicated to Rain Day.
For the annual event, High Street was blocked off to traffic and vendors and local organizations set up booths along the curb offering food and merchandise. Bands, dancers and singers performed on the stage set up on the county courthouse steps.
It gives local churches and organizations that set up booths a chance to showcase what they do and maybe make a little money. It's also a good place to see people you haven't seen in a while and at least for a day "puts Waynesburg on the map."
McKenzie and I had a fabulous time walking around town in the rain. We would have had a good time without the rain also. We watched the dancers and singers as they performed on the Rain Day stage and checked out all the booths. McKenzie had her hair braided intertwined with many ribbons and beads and her face painted but didn't want any of the food from the venders. We did get bottles of water...the only thing I saw that was remotely healthy...skipped on the funnel cakes, hot sausage sandwiches and other "street or fair foods"...very high in grease, carbs and nasties. I was so glad as the smells were even a bit nauseating at times for me. But we did watch the pie throwing contests, husband calling contests (which really made McKenzie laugh even if she didn't fully understand it), kids on skateboards contests, and the list goes on and on. Not all the booths were funny, food booths nor were they all fund raisers as there were booths from the Humane Society, Abused Children, Education, Fostering Programs, the Future of Coal, etc. Church groups were giving away Bibles, craft tables were set up where you could paint an umbrella, color pictures, etc. or purchase crafts made by local artisians. Even our local newspaper had a booth where you could purchase your newspaper for six months and get a free "Rain Day" umbrella. A money machine was set up and for a fee you could get in the booth and see how much money you could grab in a set amount of time. The only draw back on this was you also had to slide the money through a slot during your allotted time but you got to keep any money that was in the slot when your time ran out. The streets were very crowded but we did talk to many people including Mrs. Moninger who at 101 years young was still attending Rain Day. (I have known Mrs. Moninger since I was a little girl visiting my grandmother.)

Rain Day umbrella contest
Rain Day had its start in 1876, when a farmer casually mentioned to Waynesburg druggist William Allison that it always seemed to rain on his birthday, July 29.
Allison was intrigued by the statement and began keeping a log of the weather on July 29, which has continued to this day.
In the beginning, Rain Day was only observed locally. It was simply a day when bets were placed on whether it would rain or not in Waynesburg on July 29. At midnight, residents would begin a vigil at the courthouse wall to watch and wait for the first few drops to fall.
That changed in the 1930s thanks to the efforts of John O'Hara, a Waynesburg news reporter, who began sending accounts of the events to newspapers and radio stations.
His articles attracted national attention to Rain Day. Rain Day bets, traditionally a hat bet between local residents and traveling salesmen, became more far-reaching, and included celebrities such as Bob Hope, Jack Dempsey, Johnny Carson, and Pittsburgh Steeler Troy Polamalu.
Ken said he still heard music from "uptown" when he left work at 11 pm.
(I even participated in the annual 5K Rain Day Walk/Run which was held last Saturday morning and which benefited Habitat for Humanity. )
Rain Day is a big event in Waynesburg or Rainsburg as it is called on July 29 each year.
Blessings and hugs to all who read my blogs,
Helen

Legs...

Friday, July 31, 2009

Haven't heard anything yet on my legs. The doctor thinks it is definitely Vasculitis but not sure which type or what caused it. She wanted to talk with the kidney specialist after getting my blood work and urinalysis results from Wednesday. She said that any time you have a problem with your veins, it can affect your kidneys and she has been down that road with me once before and doesn't want to go there again. She was a bit upset that I didn't get in to see her specifically and said I should have gone to the Washington Hospital ER and not to Med Express. At least at the hospital, she would have gotten my reports right away and they would have called her immediately. In the future when I call her office, I am to tell the girls who I am and ask to speak to her directly and not to fool around with the front desk. We'll see how that works out. You know how it goes if you can't get beyond the front girls. Will keep you posted as soon as I hear any results at all.
Love and hugs,
Helen

POSITIVES:
God
A doctor who truly cares and worries about her patients
Modern medicine and God who directs all
Spark friends and family
Great neighbors
McKenzie is home and the sun is shining even in the rain

THANK YOU FOR READING MY BLOGS...I LOVE EACH OF YOU AND I AM BLESSED BY YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT!!!

A brief moment in time July 9-11 in Wheeling, WV meeting our Spark Friends

Sunday, July 26, 2009


Polly opening the door when I first arrive. I was so excited I didn't get her focused in the picture. Love you Polly! This was Thursday evening, our first night in Wheeling, WV.

More of the gang arrive on Friday. A great big hi to Marla and Kevin...a beautiful and wonderful couple!!

Marla got picked to open our package from Anne. How thoughtful of you Anne!!! Polly was so happy that you remembered the water guns too!!!

You can tell these are three of "Charlies Angels"...Marla, Polly and me. The guns and "feed bags" or water bottle carriers are compliments of Anne. Thank you so much Annie, these both came in handy again during my 5K walk yesterday. As you can see we take our weight loss journey seriously!!

You just never know what will happen when you turn grown women loose with squirt guns. This was an assignment from "Charlie"...poor Polly!

Just waiting for Mama and "the ole man" to arrive. She has been keeping us posted on her arrival time via text messaging.

Our first picture of Mama (aka Carol) as she arrives with dear Ricky right behind her.

Hugs all around as everyone greets Mama.

Just enjoying kicking back and getting to know everyone.

The four "sparklers" enjoy one for the camera.

Guess who joined us for dinner?!! What a great time we had!!!

This item started out as a napkin but can be transformed into many things, limited only by your imagination.

What is Polly up to now? We have had so much fun...who knew that dinner could be so great?!!!

Who do these feet belong to?

This picture speaks for itself...Mama said she was really cold in our room on Saturday morning. We have had a wonderful time together.

Mama and Polly are saying a brief "see you later" and never goodbye.

Marla and Mama are just enjoying a moment before saying later...as you can tell Mama is the one who "parties till the cows come home."

saying a "see you later" are Marla and Polly as we get ready to leave our fantastic time behind and move ahead knowing that we have cemented our friendships even tighter until we see each other again. I am sure we will never forget the time and fun we had together for our moment in time in Wheeling, WV. I know that I never will!!
Anne, I just want to say thank you for making this all possible. So sorry that you were not able to join us at this time but also know that we will all meet soon.

So glad you all had such a wonderful time and it certainly shows in your faces. Love looking at all the smiles and I was still there with all of you in my phone call, the water pistols and the water bottle holders. (Helen glad yours came in handy for your walk too! That's what is was for!)

Till we all meet again!

GOAL MET TODAY...ENTERED AND COMPLETED RAIN DAY 5K!!!

Saturday, July 25, 2009

left leg
right leg
I called my family doctor yesterday morning and told the receptionist that both my legs had something strange going on with them and I thought they needed checked. She said that I needed to go to the ER as they had absolutely no openings and only one doctor working. I wasn’t hanging around the ER waiting for an unknown amount of time. So Ken, Christopher and I jumped into the car and went to MedExpress. After checking them, the doctor said it was “something vascular,” did lots of blood work, gave me a prescription of Clarenix, said keep them elevated and ice them as they are fevered to touch, and told me to follow up with my family doctor this week. I called and the first available appointment is Wednesday at 12:30. Strange looking though and my legs really burn on the inside, feeling like they are on fire just from about three inches below the knee down. The skin is actually smooth to the touch. This is not raised above the skin. They are not itching, it is not poison, a rash or hives or anything you would normally think of so I wait until Wednesday and see what the doctor has to say.
They did not keep me from walking in our 5K Rain Day Walk/Run however. I told myself I wanted to just complete it and walk it in 1 ˝ to 2 hours. This was a goal set to me by me…just to prove I could do it. I didn’t start out to set the world on fire; I just wanted to be able to complete it. My older daughter came down to walk with me just so I wasn’t alone. She wasn’t even going to register, she just didn’t want me to walk it alone. It was for a good cause…Habitat for Humanity so I went ahead and registered her and Christopher, my grandson. He ran it as did Richelle, Joe, and several of their friends. It was all about self accomplishment. My goals were set just for me and I wasn’t trying to win…just wanted to prove I could do it. I knew I would not be able to complete the 5K if I was running…there are too many hills involved and my back just doesn’t let me. I signed up as a walker and did not overly exert myself as the temperatures were just a bit warm (82*, I think at 9:30 am) and the humidity about 100% but it only sprinkled rain for about 3 minutes and not enough to even get wet. I did finish the walk and in just over half the time I had allowed. My time was just under 65 minutes and I placed DEAD LAST OVERALL!!! I accomplished what I set out to do and it wasn’t about placing (although last is a place); it was about setting a goal for myself and completing it. Goal Met!!! I have come a long way from being told by the doctors that I would never walk again to completing my first 5K!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
On Thursday morning, McKenzie called me from Disney World and said, "Nanny I want to come home, it's not any fun down here." I told her she would be home in two more days. She said "yes on Saturday" and I told her to make sure Mommy and Daddy had fun for the next two days. To which she replied ok.
On the way home today from the 5K Walk/Run, I received a phone call from McKenzie..."Nanny, the plane is on the ground, we are in the car and on our way home. Are you coming over?" She is supposed to call me after they go to her grammies' house, get Sparkle and come back home. I am as glad to have them home as she is to be home, I'm sure!! I can't wait to see her!!!!
Hugs,
Helen

POSITIVES:
God who walks with me every step of the way
My family and friends who did the 5K with me for support
McKenzie and her family home from Florida safe and sound
The rain we did get after the 5K was over
Tomato cherries...ripe and ready to eat
More ripe strawberries on the vines...so sweet and delicious!!!
Having my grandson help me this week
Getting some decluttering completed and out of the house!
Ken who stayed at home this morning to wait for the Dish man to come and fix the cable...which he cut while trimming the shrubs
Too many blessings and positives to list but just look around...I see them everywhere all the time!!!

THANK YOU FOR READING MY BLOG AND FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT!!! I LOVE EACH OF YOU!!!

BTW...I started out at the very back of the group and stayed there. Next time, maybe I will start closer to the front of the group and see what happens. There will be a next time...on my birthday is another 5K for a good cause and I will be there!!! It will be a "trail 5K" and won't be done on pavement although a bit hilly also. Opinions?
