An Unforgettable Friend: A Lovely Lady

March 9, 2018

Taking a moment to recognize this unforgettable friend: a lovely lady who is and always been cheerful with an optimistic attitude. Her name is Julia nicknamed Dot by her family. Have referred to her before and thought of her in a favorable manner. First met her while living in Alabama. Would run across the street and spend endless time just taking to her. She at the time was quite older than myself though really didn’t seem to mind. As a rule I wouldn’t have anything in common with older people though Julia was and is so different from the norm. We would converse on numerous subjects, sometimes disagree with others views though what really made the difference was just listening. As the years grew to a precious few, still each other would phone and chat again on endless views. We could talk on anything which was unique and had respect for each others comments. I would make it a priority to sing Happy Birthday to her each year. Then last year I called her and couldn’t leave a message and in January tried phoning her and the same thing happened. Got concerned and then facebook was my link in contacting her through her sons. Then after several attempts tried leaving messages to Betsy who was married to Lesley one of her sons. Fortunately Betsy responded to my concern and wrote back what had occurred in the interim! I was overwhelmed at the response that after countless tries I was overjoyed that I would finally find out what was occurring to my marvelous friend. During these times in Alabama I revealed to Julia that I hadn’t had a grandmother, so Julia said she would be my adopted grandma. She herself was a grandmother a great grandmother. So therefore our relationship deepened. Got several photos. cards with notes over the years and  just recently have some photos sent to me from Betsy via messenger. Also got a story written by her about her adventures with her younger sisters. Julia was a civil war historian which was wonderful that she would tell me events first hand. Now momentarily she is with hospice in Birmingham and not doing well though she is still alive which is very good as she was born in the early twenties.  Will always remember many endless qualities and her friendship.

Relevant

March 3, 2018

With the nor’easter beyond us here it was and is smooth sailing: while having a little over a foot of snow here was able to navigate normally without a care. Following up with yesterday’s promise while blogging the words were relevant. Pieu Dieu is a piece of furniture dedicated to praying such as a prayer rug. Saunter is walking in a slow relaxed manner. Eddy is a world pool of circular water. So a promise made is a promise kept. Complicity comes to mind when viewing the recent news events. Unfortunately this is very distressing which deals with degenerate adult individuals to did the horrendous act of locking their three children in a tent. Now the logical intelligent way of thinking is that if you thought of any type of  unspeakable abuse give the children away such as a church or someplace else so as these innocent beautiful human beings wouldn’t have to be afflicted with this abuse. Though these evil beings are just beyond hope. There is a word called complicity and when such an evil act occurs people are complicit to the unknowing  evil act regardless of  anything that comes along the way. A great many acts could and should be prevented if only one single person would take it upon themselves to react and pay attention to these requests instead of doing nothing and  with conscience let this happen. Not a single person takes what others say in a serious vane. This is a mere utter shame. There really isn’t a reason to act in this manner. If this happen in a positive vane so many lives could be saved. Ever think of that saga!

 

A Major Snowstorm

March 2, 2018

Going on the computer finding out the news earlier brought this to be running slower than in normality so thought I would do a few items of importance which would give it time to go at a speed of my liking! So I was correct. There is a what the broadcaster refer as a life- death major snowstorm that has impacted the length of the eastern seaboard to New England which of course has included here in Rochester. The city does an outstanding job to clear of roads, highways, and side streets which surprisingly include sidewalks as a bonus to the citizenry which is great.  Just finished the book ” Tis” by Frank McCourt. Beautifully scripted and with sentimentality. There are several words like satirist or seanchie which is supposedly an Irish word: meaning to have a satisfied appetite. Then there is a French word prie dieu which I promise to look up the definition along with saunter and eddy. Love reading as I may have the grand opportunity to recall and retain these words. It’s so relevant to added knowledge. Momentarily I’m here in solitude as Andre is at an important doctor’s appointment.  Things are going well for us both. Had a doctor’s appointment yesterday at Clinton Crossing for a dex scan. Of course I struck up a conversation with a lady who was very friendly herself as both of us were waiting to be seen. Then during the procedure had another conversation with the nurse during this. As this made the time go faster and it was more relaxed. My height to 5 foot 1 inch and my weight is 89.1!  Then the receptionist was very friendly and complementary to me. So that was a short useful important visit with no follow up ones. Was home in record time. Don’t have others till May, which are two. An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

The Five Letter Doubles U

March 1, 2018

Up at this unlikely time at nearly five in the morning with a combinations of thoughts running through my brain, it’s a good time than any to script. From time in memorial when more than fifty years ago when a well known president of the United States was taken from the people and the stories surrounding this began to surface: I for one wasn’t thinking of it. My mind was focused as to the five w’s  when reporters must write each column; though there is another letter that in unrelated and that letter is h for how. My thought focused as to how the person obtained the weapon and the question was why don’t the ceos of major companies establishments do something on their own. Now in 2018 the ceo of Dicks Sporting goods has finally acted in a courageous act. He has said that no longer will guns be sold at his stores. Now Walmart has followed his lead, Moreover the age will be boosted up to 21. I’m for one are gratified in his decision. Have to make this blog finish in record time as Andre has to come here and sleep. This is the only room I may use the computer in as it is in close to the outlet.  Got my thoughts done in an ample time now so good night.
