Not much time.

In a few minutes I have to be out the door. It is doctor time for my younger son. Plus it is the end of the month and the beginning of the new month. Which means I have lots too do the next couple of days.

I need to put my track shoes on and get going. Hope all of you are having a great day.

Lost in life.

It has been busy here at the old folks home. So busy with trying to take care of a few things that I have some how managed to be gone for awhile. Life can take up a lot of your time.

We have the wrecked truck back and fixed. Some how they forgot too put the front license plate back on. So I need to make a trip back up too the body shop to have it taken care of soon.

Our new person here at the old folks home is ajusting very well. Things are moving along on a postive note. The only down thing is that the old fart has not felt very well. He sees his cancer doctor today. We will see what we see.

I will try to see what other's are doing soon. Hope all is well with all of you.

Jim & Me

Jim's brother John took this picture the other day. We were married 45 years ago Jan 5th in front of this organ. It sat in my parents living room.

Getting settled.

I won't say too much about this, but we have an extra person living at our house. She ran into some bad luck. So we are trying to get her back on her feet. Life comes at you hard sometimes. When it does you just need a little helping hand.

We use the pass it on method of being paid back. If you meet someone who needs a helping hand and you can help. Then remember when you got help and help them.

It is warmer here in KC. Suppose to get up to the 60's. Makes me happy. Still need to get that chain saw.

I can only try to make things better for some others that I know. At least I can offer a warm house, bed and food. Times are really tough for some, and it makes you all the more grateful that you have what you have in this world.

I certainly know what it is too be cold, sick and hungry. I worry for all of the people who have lost everything because of others greed. I agree with Bobby I don't think it is going to get better for some time.

We didn't need to worry so much about the enemies outside our country. We had plenty who were doing us in right here at home. How sick.

This is that big poinsettia that I had up stairs. As you can see it is doing just fine among the rose bushes. I have several more of the poinsettias in the basement.


This is the orchid that is growing in our basement. The plant behind is a big leaf philodendron. It is a plant that we keep outdoors in the warmer weather. It does get pretty big so we put it down in the basement during the winter months.


Life can come at you hard at times. If anyone thinks my life is boring think again. I don't say to much about it. That is the private part of me that really doesn't like to share. I do know one thing that my life is a lot easier since I got rid of some people.

Everyone knows some one who is toxic and you just have to learn to get away from them. My family is a good example of those who just can't seem to live life. They have to make something happen all of the time. So for years I have stayed away from certain ones and it is a good thing that I did. Because of all of the other things that just come your way that you have to handle. Why put up with others who love to create problems. I always wondered why, and my son say because they could cause problems. Makes no since to me, but then I am not them.

Just a few thoughts on a very cold day.

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


Ok I am in one of those moods of mine. It is colder than a well diggers ass here in KC today. So all I want to do is go back too bed and wait it out.
See you all later.

We took the truck up too the body shop this morning. So that is on it's way to be taken care of and out of my hair. I am getting things pretty much back to normal around here at the old folks home.

I have too got see about a chain saw. That I can use to cut up the tree that was blown down in the back yard. I want one that I can use because I really don't think Jim is up to cutting that tree up. At least it fell in our yard and not into our neighbors which is good.

My son got his third class which he has been worrying about for the last few weeks. So that is one more thing taken care of around here at the old folks home. So we are rolling along and I feel like I can breath once again.

Hope you all are having a great day. Roz

We don't grow that.

I was thinking some people would grow that weed in their basement. Jim and me we grow roses. This is from the rose tree that we didn't get planted this fall. It is doing pretty good. Some of our other rose are blooming too and it looks like the white orchid is also getting ready to bloom.
I am taking the truck in Monday. We will see how that all that works out. Today I am not doing anything that takes any kind of brain power.

Truck wreck.

This is the yellow truck that my son wreck. Most of the damage is too the grill, hood, and bumper.
The claims adjuster is suppose to come sometime today. I may have too argue with Jim over getting it fixed. No one is driving this thing until I have it fixed. The brakes are going to be replaced come hell or high water.

I have issues with the son and husband over these kind of things. So I am grinding my teeth and determined to get things done my way. Which is the right way.

I have not taken a picture of it, but while I was trying to make an entry here. My son called and said I have some bad news. He wrecked one of the trucks. At least he was able to get it back home and we switched out putting him in the car.

So now I have to have it fixed. This is the same truck that some guy rear ended me and blew out all of the shocks. This is also the truck we just put new tires on. This all gives me a headache. If I had a junker no one would hit it. Oh well, and how was your day?



I didn't cook all of this Jim cooked part of it. After all of these years if I can get out of cooking I do. Sometimes I do get in the mood and cook up a storm.
Last night I made chicken fryed up my way mushrooms, sage dressing, and a cherry pie. It took me over an hour too clean up the kitchen. I had flour every where from coating the chicken and mushrooms. You have to be fast once the cooking oil gets hot. You want it all too come out about the same time.
Hope you all are having a good day. Roz

Thanks Westy.

This is what we had for Christmas dinner. Nice steaks that Jim cooked.
Jim is feeling much better today. One of the doctors sent him some anitibiotices and they really seem to help him a lot. So I am happy. He is not going to get away from me that easy. LOL
Thanks too Westy for all of her help. I know so many of us are so glad not too have lost those we care about. So a big cheer for Westy.
Now on to other things that need to be done. Roz

Good Grief and little cat nips batman.

Here I am stumbling around all over the internet trying to find you all. It seems like a lot of you have settled here at blogger.

I do have to laugh at how slow I can be when it comes to do these things. I still plan on keeping the other journal. I think this will be a good way for me to learn.

Believe it or not in some ways this has been fun. Like a treasure hunt of sorts. Only the treasure is all of you.


45 years and counting.

45 years ago today on a sunny Jan. day I got married. I still remember when the minister said I now pronounce you man and wife. Ithought oh hell what have I got myself into now. What I got myself into was a journey down lifes path with a man. Who at times I could have pulled out a pistol and shot. Other times I only felt love that just filled me too the brim.

So how does a person stay married 45 years? First off you just get up every day and live life. You learn too take the good with the bad and enjoy the good, and make the bad go away. So here I am after all of these years. With two boys, and a man who tells me just about every day that he loves me. I don't have a clue as too why he does, but he keeps showing up at the dinner table everyday. So I guess I might as well keep him. I haven't run into any other men I want too keep around. So I guess that is how you stay married.

New Year, New Day

Another busy day. Meet my son at the doctor's then took him back too the place he lives. Of course we had to stop on the way back. That is OK.

I plan to watch a couple of movies that I rented and make chile tonight. Outside of that I am simply trying to rest up after all of the holidays. Plus just getting through everyone's ill health etc. Seems like the holidays bring that stuff on.

Hope everyone is doing well.

My Christmas Present.

This is our new pup. Her name is Bree and she is about the same size as our Sassy. Also so sweet just like Sassy. We got her at the animal shelter. She gets along with Sassy really well. They are so much alike in so many ways.

Yes she has our hearts just like Sassy. We just could not help falling in love with her.
