Love that clip, tiapam! Trains can magically take us anywhere, 'if you just believe'!

And, I BELIEVE it is going to rain in TX and OK!

Looks like I had a twitch.

My colon/semicolon key is not working. I’m sure happy that I bought a new computer yesterday. Hopefully Jr will get it setup this weekend. I’m tired of fighting this thing.

LOL! When I started reading your post, saying your colon/semicolon was not working - I seriously read it wrong; I thought you were talking about a digestive problem. *grin*

Glad to realize you were talking about your computer - hope you like the new one!!!

And may God cover each of you
with His Comforting Love and Divine Healing

So many of us are hurting - be it physical pain or dibilitating illness,
family problems, money woes, job loss, the loss of a loved one,
Fear for our Country's future, fear of fire, flood, earthquake, or tornado.

Put it all in His Hands - He can heal it all
Prayers continue for each of you.
~God Bless~

well, here I come once again with my tail between my legs embarrassed I haven’t been around more. I try to keep up with all your news and unfortunately so much of it is not good.. health, financial, people issues. I too have those three things covered with problems and it seems it is very rare any more to find people w/o terrible bumps in their lives. My thoughts and prayers go with each of your in your journeys. We all do our best I know and God is good and life is sweet, even though at times a bit convoluted.

I do so appreciate all your pings, great posts, creativity, beautiful tables, inspirational thoughts and humor and most of all sharing from your heart.

It is closing in on a year that my mom has died and I do miss her but love the freedom of time. Financially I cannot do the travel too often that I truly enjoy. I do some when I can & will get to the Cowboy Texas shoot in October, Lord willing. Will be my first time to be able to attend since Texas Cowboy passed & the event started.

At my age & with my health issues finding any employment is impossible I have found. Social Security is very low as I did NOT have that many years in the work force. I would love to be able to sell this home, which I do like, but is financially overwhelming, but the market for real estate here in TOP QUALITY condition is 35-50% on the dollar. And this place has a lot of deferred maintaince. Been plugging along to improve but it is still a handyman special big time

Trying to redirect my attention to survival mentality rather than relocation mentality at this time. Doing some stocking.. thinking of a few who could share the home./work/efforts if we for a short or long time must live like the Amish.

Have re explored a few of the “guy relationships” I had put on back burner. I am not desperate for a man in my life.. if the right one is there, PTL.. if not, I can die very content alone. I have eliminated a few who would have been sugar daddies but just can’t go there. I ask myself if I would be interested if they weren’t wildly rich.. and the bottom line is NO. After a couple trips and some heart to hearts, it becomes clear if there is love-gel or not. I am practical enough to know at my age you dont have the same scenario as when you are 20 but there should at least be mild atttraction! :-)

Love the red shoes, hat & oh my the gorgeous ring posted today. Still love jewelry & wish there was a good market for it. Found Ebay & Craigs list not all people said it would be. But I did try.

I do enjoy keeping up with many of you on Facebook. I tend to spend most of my time there on line.. next probably on the Porch (at The Right Reasons).

My pups are both doing well but Josy still has the allergy issues and the fungal issues (internal) that German Shepherds are prone towards. My health has not permitted the daily jaunts we once did. I am trying hard to get back in that grove. They miss it and so do I

Have a nice weekend all.. 911.. very somber time in our hearts and souls I pray for safety for our people.

So very precious and thoughtful of you to post this Yorkie, in regards to those of us who are hurting for one reason or another!
Personally, I did put it all in His Hands when I had back surgery 3 years ago. When the doctor said I’d always have 40 percent pain AFTER surgery, I had to learn to re-learn my life. It’s been far from easy, but has also been a learning experience.
Everything IS IN GOD’S HANDS and HE does takes care of us!!
Thank you and God Bless you too!!

Hello all, it’s been a while since I stopped by, I miss all my Freeper friends (they are the BEST) Thank you yorkie for this beautiful graphic and prayer for all in pain, as one with end-stage arthritis I know pain. But the good Lord blesses me daily in many other ways.

Thank you, Pam. I know you have learned to re-live your life, and you have done such a good job! I am thankful that you are as mobile as you are, as some spinal surgeries don’t turn out as well.

It was touch and go, as the doctors told me - and you (Bless your heart) continue to sing Praises - as you did in the hospital, the moment you were out of recovery. (((HUGS)))

Well, Potlatch, I just realized I CAN delete “O” out of my life - it’s called the REMOTE CONTROL. Whenever he appears on any channel - the remote ‘does it’s job’! I cannot tolerate hearing him. When he opens his mouth - out comes yet ANOTHER lie!

My son had a friend in high school named Gideon. This young boy was so full of the most incredible stories - all made up. After awhile, no one wanted to waste their time talking with him. So - he became a total loner - with all the wonderful stories to share - and no one to listen.

[he became a total loner - with all the wonderful stories to share - and no one to listen.]

I always wonder how people come to be like that but it was obviously a ‘learned’ thing from his family.

Yeah, the remote works good. I use ‘mute’ a lot so that I can still glance over and see what’s happening, lol.

A group of tourists were watching the re-enactment of an ancient Egyptian religious ritual. One turned to a nearby local, pointed to the statue that was being praised and asked, “Pardon me, but what was the name of that god supposed to be?”

“Why do you ask?” the man replied.

The tourist shrugged. “Just idol curiosity, I guess.”
