” Interacting”

September 21, 2016

Another month nearly at the end and as the song goes the days dwindle down to a precious few. Not growing up without the advantages of a grandmother has taken a told. Speaking neither negatively nor positively its just affected me in an unexpected unique way. Now I am a grandmother, myself. Have a very special bond with my grandchildren, I think never having a grandmother myself. So for me it is a wonderful experience. Actually not seeing them on a daily basis really doesn’t bother me. Over the many years have had seen them grow up into fine ladies and gentlemen. My daughter-in-law and my son have a website which has all the activities and glorious pictures of all over the years. I go on it periodically to see what is going on with all of them individually and collectively. It is fantastic.
Again not growing up with holidays to the max it seems very odd to me, as well it should be. Speaking of one holiday in particular being Halloween which is the eve of All Saints Day if anyone is interested. Never went out to trick or treating as a child. My mentioning this is appropo to what it am about to script: often wondered why and for the longest time now I know: when my younger son when he was quite small ask me” Mom why is it that Dad makes such a big deal with costumes and masks and all the Halloween things and you don’t think of it that way” David and Andre use to watch scary horror movies at Halloween especially. I just wasn’t into that. In fact I would trend going down the Halloween isle because the faces would scare me. Though when Ian and Andre were very young I would go out with them as they were decked out in their favorite costumes for trick or treating. I recall have a Friendly bag with me.
Living here in Ga. you have a lot of bugs. Which there is a song by Pearl Jam called” Bugs” It goes in part Bugs everywhere. Bugs in your ears. Bugs in your nose. Bugs on the walls. Speaking of bugs, there are mosquitos by the ton. There other evening when one of my friends were outside, there were mosquitoes galore. I had some Calgon Lavander and Vanilla body spray which I simply adore and the mosquitos apparently did too. As a result I got stung multiple times everywhere it seemed. Still have them and putting some anti itch hortorzone cream on which definitely helps. Got it from my roommate. So that is life in a nutshell. It is what it is.

“Discombobulated”

September 12, 2016

Let me make this short and succinct. Those of them seem to exacerbate an ongoing war of expressions. They are part of a problem and myself is part of a solution and not being melodramatic in fact I stay far away from and type of drama. Though some tend to thrive on it. Holy Crapola!
I feel it is my responsibility to preserve and defend those who are no longer with us, speaking of one particular wonderful human being.
Trust is to be earned. It isn’t just given away.
Children learn what they live. They are the mirrors of adults.

” Combobulated”

September 11, 2016

Not really how to start this theme though will do my utmost to give clear realization. As a child never had a grandmother or a grandfather. Children need a sense of belonging and a sense of being nourished by an older generation. In the Midwest and in the South in which I lived a numerous number of years there are extended families.
As a child growing up never had a grandmother or grandfather. Never knew them. When I would inquire I was thrown a bunch of names which meant nothing to me at the time.
My mother wasn’t the type to teach me how to cook anything. Guess her mother would teach her things such as cooking. Yet my mother didn’t do this. She never let me by example. Never knew how to base a turkey, prepare holidays meals.
Grandfathers and grandmothers give a real vibrant living history to children. Telling them stories of the time which was spent long ago.
Still the cycle continued, my two precious sons never knowing grandmothers or grandfathers. Much later in life I met a lady who lives in Alabama and she had a good amount of grandchildren and great-grandchildren so one more wouldn’t matter. I became her friend and grandchild and I still speak to her today.
My wonderful two sons had an Aunt Cora and Uncle Perry which they both met when my sons were quite young. And believe this they were impressed with their kindness they had shown and remembered them also.
My husband and myself had shown an abundance of love. There was the four of us without an extended family.

” Three In One”

September 8, 2016

With the first week in September well underway with blue skies and an abundance of sunshine in this southern atmosphere other places on the planet aren’t as fortunate.
Namely Lac Megantic in the beautiful province in Quebec, in country of Canada: there was an oil exploration. No one has taken responsibility for this as yet. Most likely the company will point fingers saying its not their fault and will eventually never take blame for this. The reason being there will be massive fines placed against the culprit. Though time will tell. It is very sad just thinking of the wildlife lost, the sea life the various types of fish consumed by countless humans.
Second in this state of Georgia there was a chemical spill the Chattahooche River. Nicked named the Hooch by fellow Georgians. This river is extensive with national wildlife and natural beauty if research extensively. It is well known throughout the country. People I am told travel long distances to fish and do other outdoor activities. The Riverkeepers will detect toxic levels and will keep the state in tow until the levels go down or completely eradicate.
In North Dakota in the capital Bismarck there is a giant protest that has recently become violent. Sadly to say this act is here because of a pipeline being constructed by the government of the state or the U.S. government. These American Indians are protesting and rightfully so because the pipeline will be covering the graves of these dead American Indians. How awfull is this event!
In fact all of these events mentioned are horrible in their own unique way!
Noticed online news stories all have the facebook notably there to comment or for those who would like to make comments! This has become most annoying to readers and namely one particular reader!! This is full of Malarky!!!
