June 29, 2006 - Msg 41753: Hey back atcha, M-T, Floyd, Boo, auh2o, MDC, Mavis, Poor Horatio and everybody else! I sure do remember you from 'back in the day,' Horatio. I coulda used that lost shaker of salt last night! One of my daughters (the ones who were starting kindergarten when I first started posting and are now going into high school!!) broke up a fight between 2 of our cats and got her right arm shredded and bitten. We were at the emergency clinic until midnight last night. I was already reeling about this big stray puppy I let into the back yard digging up some of my garden plants. Then that cat thing happened, then I realized how much this would cost and we're in that 'not poor enough to get free medical treatment' and 'not rich enough to not care' category, and before long I was fit to be tied. My girl is ok - she got a shot and some pills to take. Mercy, last night was just awful.

Boo, I was reading about all the things you have going on right now. Girl, you sound so much like me. I worry so much that I can't enjoy each day as it comes for fear of what could happen next. What is the answer? I pray, but keep on worrying anyway. Btw, I'm so thankful to hear your friend Linda is now off life support!

Deputy Warren, I hope you don't have a cold coming on. Summer colds are such a pain. I'll pray it's not the flu.

I hope Andelina's doing well, Mavis. I haven't talked to her in ages. Maybe I'll play a Buffett tune in her honor.

Homemaker, I'm praying for you and yours.

I'm keeping a good thought for everyone. May the upcoming holiday weekend be uneventful for all of us!

Much love,
~De~

M-T Msg 41743, as soon as I read your comment about how you got your nickname, I had a vision of Barney singing those words to prepare his vocal chords. A very unique name.

Deputy Warren Msg 41746, glad to hear you're feeling better. As for auh2o's name, ever notice him talking about a person named Goldwater? See Msg 41741. In the chemical world, they have what's known as the Table of Elements where every chemical known to man is listed along with information about their atomic structures. They don't list the chemicals by name. They use abbreviations. Well, "au" is the chemical name for Gold and "h2o" is the chemical name for Water. Get it now? "auh2o" is GoldWater. Apparently, auh2o admires him. Goldwater is a former Senator from Arizona. He also ran for but lost the 1964 election for President of the United States. He also was a General in the Air Force reserves. He passed away in 1998.

Asa Msg 41750, speaking of PU, that is the initials of one of the colleges I graduated from. And I got a Bachelor of Science from there. So that means I can put B.S. P.U. after my name. ROFLMAO

HAHAHA

Well, I just put a chicken in the pot for soup later and now its time for the coffee break...waited a long time for my first cup this morning.

Sorry about confusing you with Horatio, Auh2o. You both have similar styles.

Horatio, Yes, it is wonderful what the Lord did for Linda. I wanted to tell you that yesterday when we were driving home from church I was explaining to my son what God had done in healing Linda. I didn't know my little girl (4) was listening from the back seat but I could hear her whispering so I looked back and she had her little head bowed, and her hands pressed together and she was saying, "Thank you God for helping Linda". Isn't that neat? Kids are great when they aren't turning your hair grey.

Glad you are feeling a bit better Warren, get plenty of rest and fluids. Wish I could send you some chicken soup.

Me-They, I could be mistaken but I think that Warren mentioned that he wasn't a Christian or any other religion. Of course, attending church is still a great idea, and you are right, being a part of a loving church family is one of the greatest blessings in this life.

I was reading the paper this morning and read about a local man who was on trial for killing the one month old infant daughter of his girlfriend. The baby died of multiple skull fractures and rib fractures, etc. and the county prosecutor was pressing for a capital murder charge and didn't get it. The guy was found guilty of manslaughter instead. His defense attorney said, "We were disappointed that he wasn't aquited. He is worried about his future and is sad." Funny that someone can kill a baby, lie about it and then is "worried about his future". What about the future he took from the baby. I wonder if he is concerned about that? What is this world coming to?!

I miss Romeena....hope she finds the time to check in soon. Bet she is riding a Sea-Doo or something right now.

June 29, 2006 - Msg 41759: Hey DES, we were posting at the same time. Wow, sounds like you had quite a night last night, so sorry! Hope your daughter heals quickly.

Continued prayers for you Homemaker.

Morning Barnwannabee, hope you are having a good day today.

Morning to you Auh20, you are one smart cookie. I barely got one degree without killing myself. I hated school. I did take some courses at the seminary (by choice) and that I enjoyed but if I HAVE to learn it, it makes it harder for me. After my children get older, I am thinking about going back to get my Master's in Nursing so that I can teach later. I worked 15 years in the hospital as a nurse and I don't think I want to go back to that but there is a real need in our area for those willing to teach Nursing. The salary is not great so most Nurses won't teach. I'm thinking about it, anyway...we'll see.

Been talking too long! See ya'll later,

Boo

June 29, 2006 - Msg 41760: Boo: as Floyd says, you love that mid-mornin' cup a coffee!!! Boo, you were talking about the guy who killed that girl, I wonder too if they can sleep like that??? A woman that I work with, the place that we work has a bar on one side, and a resturant on the other. (My parents own it) She said that when she first started there, she was working as a bartender, and she knew the former owners very well. Their son-in-law came in and took over, and he was steeling money out of the cash registers, and saying that it was her. She was so upset about it, and even last night when she was telling me the story, she started crying. He accused her, and the owners, which she had known much longer than he had, fired her. She asked me if I thought he could sleep with the fact that he did that on his mind. I told her what goes around comes around, and that one day, he would have to answer to God for it.

Barnwannabe.

June 29, 2006 - Msg 41761: That's right, BWB. It really makes you wonder how some folks sleep at night. I think people like that have an abnormal conscience. Think about it this way, if a person lives life with no "moral compass" there is no end to what they might do. If one takes no thought for the bible or God's judgement against sin, their sin will lead them to destruction. The bible talks about how a person's conscience can be "seared" and it can no longer feel right from wrong (very scary place to be).

June 29, 2006 - Msg 41847: Evening Porch! Big Maude I think she said she would be gone 12 days or so. CT sorry I missed you at Sarah's last night, gonna try to head over there in a bit. I need to ask you folks to pray for my neighbors, I call her Mamaw, even tho she technically isn't my Mamaw, the families have lived next to each other for over 60 years & that is all I have ever known her as. Anyway, Mamaw is in the hospital right now & it is only a matter of time. They are counting the breaths she is taking & just waiting right now. The whole family is there at the hospital & pretty upset (understandable) please pray that they will receive comfort at this time. Mamaw told me long ago she was ready to go see Jesus' beautiful face & God could just come get her anytime. So, it's not her that needs the prayers, she will be better than most of us when she finally breathes her last. Best go for now, thanks in advance for the prayers.

from Poor Horatio

June 29, 2006 - Msg 41859: Well MDC, I didn't see a movie tonight. When I went to pick up my friend, her irresponsible teenaged daughter had flown the coop and left her 7 month old behind for her mom to care for. I was a bit upset but not at all surprised. The girl has zero respect for her mom and mom lets her get away with it. We did go out and eat Chinese but that was all.

Prayers for Mavis and Mamaw's family. I am exited for Mamaw. Imagine knowing you were so close to seeing your beloved Lord.

Wanted to tell you about a new series that Chuck Swindoll is doing on the family. I heard part 1 tonight and it was excellant. Check your local Christian radio stations to see when you can listen to it if you are interested. Today's broadcast was really unique.

I would like to ask your continued prayers for Sean while we are weaning him off this Paxil. We have 2 more weeks and it is getting rough. We have gone from 15mg down to 5mg now and he is very emotional, unable to handle stress and so on. Poor kid is having a tough time.

Also please remember my friend whose little girl was hurt by the 15 yr old. My friend is having such a hard time with it because she has an ex-husband that is not a very nice person and she fears he will try to gain custody of her children when he learns of all this. He is the type that would try to gain custody so he wouldn't have to pay child support to his ex. He is about to get remarried and would have someone to take care of them now so it is a real possibility that he might try. My poor friend is in such emotional pain over it, and it would be horrific for the kids, who have already been through so much. Thanks.

Think I will brush the teeth and think about going to bed. My son has 2 friends over for the night but I am about to go turn out the lights and force them to bed. Until tomorrow..parting is such sweet sorrow!

Mavis, Prayers for your Mamaws situation. Her departure will no doubt be a blessing for her, but hard for all you left behind.

Boo, I caught most of that broadcast yesterday morning on the radio by Chuck. (man, can I call him Chuck lol) I agree, this is going to be an excellent series. And prayers for your friend.

Welcome back Spot, you old hound dog. We missed ya. Maude took good care of us while you was gone.

MDC, was your Dad in a B-17? Them old bombers could really take a lickin and keep on tickin. They flew many missions deep into Germany without fighter protection and paid a heavy price for it. Until the P-51 Mustang was built. Then we kicked some serious behind!

Charlotte, how ya doing? Missed you at Sarah's last night. Talked to Poor Horatio for a bit. He ain't half bad. LOL

Well it's Friday. We made it. How many are gonna make it a 4 day weekend? I'm thinking about it.

Hope you all have a good safe productive day.

She is still hanging on, but the Dr. is saying he really doesn't know how, it's just a matter of time tho. Don't know why she isn't just letting go, maybe she thinks someone needs her around a little longer. At any rate, continued prayers for the family would be greatly appreciated. I am going to go by the hospital today on my way to groom some of those poor dogs from the neglect case. I'll let ya'll know when I get homw. Prayers to everyone & Spot WHAT'S FER BREKKY??

June 30, 2006 - Msg 41867: Hey, Colt. I will be going to the In-law's for forth of July. They live in a small Texas town about an hour from me and talk about HOT! I guess the whole family will cram into the mobile home and fight for places to sit down. Sound like fun?? We are plannning to bar-b-que, which is nice. Then , we will sit around and listen to my sister-in-law talk about her bad divorce. Then someone will say something to offend one of the women and start a fight....you get the picture, fun.

Glad you caught that Swindoll broadcast, ASA. It doesn't come on here until 10pm so I hope I don't forget to listen to it tonight.

Better go, have to go into town to take Sean to his counselor. I have three boys sleeping on the floor and on couches in the den and they won't be easy to wake up!

June 30, 2006 - Msg 41869: Oh I forgot to share something that was a great blessing that happened the week of VBS. Ya'll know how I moaned and groaned about how tired I was, etc..Well, I have talked before about my neighbor who is an alcoholic and has the 2 boys that I took to VBS. The boys are 11 and 13 and are good, well-behaved kids. They both went with us every night of VBS and the youngest one went to the pastor and asked him about accepting Christ so pastor talked with him and answered his questions and then the boy wanted to pray to receive Christ. Pastor told me had had a great understanding of the gospel for his age. I am very happy about it because those boys have a tough life. Yesterday, Sean brought them to our house saying that their mom was screaming and calling them horrible names. They spent the night here last night. It was great, though, that come Wed. night, they both wanted to come to church with us and said they want to continue. I have asked prayer for them in the past and you guys have prayed, so I thank you. I can see God's hand in their lives.

Bye!
