Irene, I have been watching the British Open (golf) at Muirfield, East Lothian, Scotland, and the area looks very, very dry except for the greens. The wind is blowing quite hard.
Correction: even the greens look thirsty.
Keep cool. Stay safe. emoticon Roberta

Night time is the worst. I have to get up sometimes and read or spark till I calm down some.
In the morning things will look different. I was a little anxious when I saw my surgeon today as I thought I have two other things pending but it all worked out just fine.
Hope you are resting now.

HI LADIES-THE NEIGHBORHOOD PICNIC WAS GREAT. THERE WERE PROBABLY 100 PEOPLE THERE OR MORE. DD AND HER DH HAD US SITTING RIGHT UP FRONT TO ENJOY THE MUSIC AND THE DANCING. OUR DSIL WAS PART OF THE BAND AND IT WAS GREAT. THEY PLAYED ALL THE OLDIES AND DEDICATED A WILLIE NELSON SONG TO DH AND I BECAUSE IT WAS WESTERN THEME NIGHT .
BECAUSE WE ARE WINTER-TEXANS! WE ALSO GOT TO EAT WITH THE BAND MEMBERS.

TRIED TO CHOOSE HEALTHY FROM THE -LONG -TABLES OF FOOD. NEVER DID GET TO TRY MY OWN CHERRY PIE OR DD'S BROWNIES. AFTER THAT THERE WAS OUR OWN FIREWORKS OUT OVER THE LAKE. AND I GOT TO WEAR ONE OF MY NEW CASUAL OUTFITS WE SHOPPED FOR YESTERDAY! FUN!

Pat, glad your team won. The cherry pie sounds so good. My Mother used to bake them all the time when I was a child. Cherry Cobblers.

I am headed to bed, tired and hope I can sleep.

Pat, enjoy your time outside, too damp here. I haen't heard the first firework yet. That is very unusual for this neighborhood. Was watching the July 4th Program from NY, but I had enough of the singing (yelling). Guess I am getting old. I switched to another station. Been working on another Christmas ornament that we were taught yesterday in our Circle of Crafts at the church. I posted a couple pictures in a blog.

Hope everyone has a great evening. Geo. Jr. will be here in the morning to mow (weather permitting), and try to do something with the leak I have in the sunroom. No one can find where it is leaking.

Hugs and prayers to all.

HI LADIES. WHERE ARE YOU TONIGHT? WE ARE PARKED ALONG A ROAD THAT LOOKS OUT OVER A LAKE THAT PROMISES A GOOD FIREWORKS DISPLAY.

GOT HERE EARLY AND HAVE OUR CHAIRS SET UP. STILL QUITE LIGHT OUT.
NO ONE ELSE HAS JOINED US HERE YET. OUR NEIGHBOR RECOMMENDED THIS SPOT.
PASSING THE TIME ON MY I-PAD. THE OTHERS HAVE INTERESTING BOOKS TO READ THAT I HAVE ALREADY READ.

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER.--- LUCKY US.

PEOPLE NEAR HERE ARE FREQUENTLY POPPING OFF SOME KIND OF LOUD FIRECRACKERS.

A BEAUTIFUL HOT-AIR BALLOON JUST FLOATED BY.

A YOUNG FAMILY OF 5 JUST WALKED BY RETURNING FROM FISHING APPARENTLY- CARRYING POLES, BUCKET, FOLDING CHAIRS, ETC.

SO MUCH FOR NOW.. MORE LATER.

PAT :))
NUMEROUS CARS PARKED ON BOTH SIDES OF US NOW. EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE EATING. MAKING ME HUNGRY :)

Marsha a lot of people here work in restaurants and other places and they don't speak English. That makes it quite uncomfortable. I think if possible they should learn English.
Actually some know English but are embarrassed to try it.

I do agree with Pat also. Some people learn quicker than others. I was fairly young (early 30's) when I learned Spanish. I was already ministering in it in one year. I am sure the Lord had a lot to do with that since He called me to minister to them. English is one of the most difficult languages to learn. Spanish is a lot easier. Each of the vowels have one sound and most of the consonents sound like ours. In English each letter can have as many as 5 sounds.

I AGREE- IT WOULD SHOW MUCH MORE PATRIOTISM ON ALL IMMIGRANTS PART IF THEY WOULD LEARN AND SPEAK ENGLISH IN THEIR NEWLY ADOPTED COUNTRY.

I KNOW THAT IS EASIER SAID THAN DONE. SOME OF OUR FAMILY HAVE EASILY MASTERED OTHER LANGUAGES AND OTHERS, LIKE ME, HAVE STUDIED BUT STILL CAN'T COMMUNICATE IN ANYTHING BUT OUR NATIVE TONGUE. LINGUISTICS COMES EASIER FOR SOME.

THAT SAID-WE ALL HOPE THEY MAKE A CONCERTED EFFORT!

Irene, I agree, but I do believe that they should learn English. It is so rude down here,, they speak really loud and in Spanish. Even a lady on the Zimmerman trial has been in the US 12 years, and had an interpreter. I just don't agree on that.
It might not be the Christian way of thinking, but most all of my neighbors don't speak English. They have been here years. They know enough to say "I don't speak English".

WHY DO WE CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY?

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate that freedom and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings. Through the Internet we are learning about and communicating with people of different nations, with different languages and different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations.

We invite all nations to celebrate with Americans online this Fourth of July.

Happy Birthday, America!



“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

THANKS IRENE FOR THE INFO ABOUT CAREGIVERS. WE PROBABLY CAN ALSO GO UP AND ENTER "CAREGIVERS" IN THE SEARCH BOX AND FIND IT TOO.
I KNOW THERE ARE PLENTY OF FOLKS ON OUR SITE THAT NEED THAT INFO.
I ALSO HAVE A PERSONAL FRIEND WHO IS WEARING HERSELF OUT DOING JUST THAT. SHE DOES USE A COMPUTER SO I WILL PASS YOUR INFO ON TO HER AS WELL.

HI MARSHA- I AM SORRY YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE READING THE SMALL PRINT.
YES THERE ARE WAYS TO MAKE THE FONT LARGER ON ALL YOUR MESSAGES.

BUT THE BEST WAY TO HELP YOU IS THIS ADVICE. PLEASE ASK YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER IN LAW TO SET YOUR PRINT TO LARGER VIEWING- NEXT TIME THEY VISIT.

ANOTHER SUGGESTION WOULD BE TO GET AN I-PAD . JUST WITH THE "SPREAD OF YOUR FINGERS" ON THE FACE OF THE I-PAD YOU CAN MAKE EVERYTHING LARGER!
A VERY GOOD INVESTMENT FOR PEOPLE OUR AGE.!

HUGS, PAT

Just checking in, I am going to have to lay off posting a lot as it is too much eye strain. The small print is really getting to me. I will check in and know I am thinking of all of you. I don't understand why the print is so little. Is there somewhere that you can change the font and size that I don't know about?

Have a good night's rest. Hugs and prayers to all.

Enough storms and rain already. We got hit Thursday evening and again last night. I didn't get a power outage, (the lights flickers a little) but I was one of the lucky ones. My daughter and neighbors have no power and right now are being told it might not be on until Wednesday. The metro and surrounding areas really got hit and especially lost many trees and many vehicles that were hit by the falling trees.. In the condo area where I live, we have lost six trees over the last couple days, but again no other property damage other than the fence of our tennis court.. Fortunately no lives lost and that is certainly a blessing. They are forecasting more storms over the next couple of days. As I said enough storms and rain already

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough 'Hellos' to get you through the final 'Good-bye.'"

Pat, it always feels good to have hair done. I hope that you and DH enjoy the reunion. Geo. Jr. is coming tomorrow morning to pressure wash my house. It needs it, and always looks brand new when he does it. Also the vynel fence needs it to. Just made a picture of iced tea as he loves iced tea when he is working out.

Take pictures to share, and hope that you see several that you graduated with.

Hi Pat. I know what you mean about dwindling class mates, dwindling family, dwindling friends, etc. And the older we get the fewer we have. My mom used to say I have more on the other side than I have here. She was the last of her classmates to die and the last of her siblings to die also.

My knee is much better today.

When she returns we will have strawberry shortcake again for dinner.

We had our house power washed today. Looks really nice.
Squeaky clean again:)

Packing for our trip tomorrow PM. Will keep you posted as to
How the class reunion goes.. DH class -1942- was honored last year and we missed it.
We still hope to see several of his old class members there but they are dwindling.

Thank you, Irene, for that beautiful story. It is a good reminder that God does have a plan and even when we mess up He is there.

Pat, have a great time at your reunion. I haven't been to one for years probably because the last one was very disappointing. Boy, you got that right about groceries and gas. Although I noticed today that my station is at 3.54. Thankfully I don't have to be out and about everyday, and try to do all my errands on the day's that I have appointments.

Prayers for all especially all who are in harms way. emoticon

God's Embroidery
When I was a little boy, my mother used to embroider a great deal. I would sit at her knee and look up from the floor and ask what she was doing. She informed me that she was embroidering. I told her that it looked like a mess from where I was. As from the underside I watched her work within the boundaries of the little round hoop that she held in her hand, I complained to her that it sure looked messy from where I sat.

She would smile at me, look down and gently say, "My son, you go about your playing for a while, and when I am finished with my embroidering, I will put you on my knee and let you see it from my side."

I would wonder why she was using some dark threads along with the bright ones and why they seemed so jumbled from my view. A few minutes would pass and then I would hear Mother's voice say, "Son, come and sit on my knee." This I did only to be surprised and thrilled to see a beautiful flower or a sunset. I could not believe it, because from underneath it looked so messy. Then Mother would say to me, "My son, from underneath it did look messy and jumbled, but you did not realize that there was a pre-drawn plan on the top. It was a design. I was only following it. Now look at it from my side and you will see what I was doing."

Many times through the years I have looked up to my Heavenly Father and said, "Father, what are You doing?" He has answered, "I am embroidering your life. " I say, "But it looks like a mess to me. It seems so jumbled. The threads seem so dark. Why can't they all be bright?"

The Father seems to tell me, "'My child, you go about your business of doing My business, and one day I will bring you to Heaven and put you on My knee and you will see the plan from My side."

Good night all, been a busy day, and tomorrow have to do Church Food Bank.
Irene, I pray you sleep good tonight.
Pat, I was having bad ankle pains, and when the doctor put me on the strong (50,000 mg) of Vit K they have subsided pretty good. I just take one capsule once a week. Even my nails are stronger. Don't know if that has anything to do with either, but it really bothered me before.

Welcome to the new members, so glad to have you here, don't be bashful, we are here for each other's support.

Nighty Night
