"Wish I knew how to quilt! (I am a talentless one!)

Same here, teenie, and to think my mother was the best seamstress in the world. Sewing has always made me a bit nervous. Occasionally, I open my sewing machine to sew a seam or hem some knit slacks but I don't do a great job. I keep a piece of material handy and try the stitching out on the scrap before I decide what to use on the hem. What I hate most of all is threading the machine and putting thread on the bobbin to match!

Dress slacks have to be hand hemmed to suit me. I'm looking for someone now to hem some new slacks I just purchased. I haven't found anyone yet and need the slacks because I've lost some weight. My doctor thinks its the pain pills that are making me lose weight. But pain alone can tear the whole body up, I think. The last couple of days I've been a little hungrier and have eaten better!

LOL! You crazy thing! I even have 2 pairs of pajamas to be hemmed and they have a tiny piece of lace at the bottoms and I'm trying to figure out how to do that and not lose the lace.

How about these slacks? Are they too long?.....LOL!

Just dropping in to say hi and thanks for the pings. I have been busy with my new computer and finally finished my first graphic in over half a year or more. Have to say I do not really like Window7, such a big change from XP and many of the features I liked are gone.

Hope all’s well and you have a nice weekend.

I love your image Jaycee, it’s great! Sorry I’m not here more but my life’s been ‘involved’. Funny thing - April Fool’s Day last year was the beginning of a bad year for me and I’m counting on an end to it in a few days, lol.

Hope you are feeling well, we are all having our troubles and I keep all of you in my prayers.

You're most welcome, potlatch! It's nice to see you posting after such a long absence.

You sound like hubby. His latest 'puter has Windows7 and he doesn't sound real happy with it. I suppose it takes some getting used to.

Hope all is well with you!

Hi Teenie. If I could go back to XP I’s do it in a second but Windows doesn’t upgrade XP any more - from what I know. I’ve had it a month now and am used to some things but miss so many features that have changed.

I’m well, still have some family illnesses going on though.

No, and the back surgeon did not mention a compression fracture to me. I dislike not being informed especially when it comes to my medical care.

Ear test went ok was nearly painless..pain was from my lumbar contacting a hard surface. Even soft ones are a no go.

Any one ever hear of a I or E stem for the back to treat bladder pain?

They are spending less and less time with me. I feel like I am getting shafted and shunted off as a nut case. Yet all my test say horrid stuff.

Wonder if they make an 8 or 10” stiletto? Of course, I may be nursing a broken hip afterward. I don’t know how anyone wears them. I noticed the gals on Fox wear the highest heels I’ve ever seen. I sometimes wonder how many falls they may have had! And if they haven’t fallen yet, their time could come.

I believe they would need to be cut off about 4 inches, plus allow one inch more for hemming. (I bought 2 pair.) I just went in the bathroom where they’re on a hanger and its sort of a little scalloped braid around the leg bottoms. The lace was on the pocket of the top and around the neck. I can do without the scalloped braid at the bottom I guess but I sorta liked it.

Last time I bought P.J.’s I found petites and on me they were perfect full lengths!

Thank you potlatch. Its always good to see you around here.
I understand the "bad year" thing. You and I both have had
many bad things this past year. I always try to say, "It could
have been worse." Sometimes its hard but things could
be worse. The Lord brought us through everything. You are always in my
prayers also, Potlatch.

Also, all of yorkie's troubles, and Dubya has never made it back yet.
And of course Dave had bladder cancer and is making very good
progress on his recovery. Thats what I mean when I say
it could have been worse.

HAPPY THURSDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!


Glencar Waterfall, Co. Sligo, Ireland

From “The Stolen Child”

Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above Glen-Car,
In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star,
We seek for slumbering trout
And whispering in their ears
Give them unquiet dreams;
Leaning softly out
From ferns that drop their tears
Over the young streams.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

William Butler Yeats






Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I hope you are doing ok Jaycee. Pain and troubles are not fun but it helps to have friends and loved ones. Thanks for thinking of me too and I’ll try to ‘check in’ more often, lol.

I’ve continued to pray for Dubya and Dave too.

Who Do We See?

March 30, 2012

For many years, Allen Funt’s Candid Camera television program delighted viewers by using a hidden camera to catch the often hilarious reactions of ordinary people to unexpected situations. Their approach, according to his son Peter was: “We believe people are wonderful, and we’re out to confirm it.” Peter feels the perspective of some other similar shows is that “people are stupid, and we’re going to find ways to underscore that.”

His comments point out that our view of people determines how we treat them.

The citizens of Jericho were offended when Jesus went to the home of Zacchaeus the tax collector. “When they saw it, they all complained, saying, ‘He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner’” (Luke 19:7). Yet, when Zacchaeus had a deep change of heart (v.8), Jesus told him, “Today salvation has come to this house . . . for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost” (vv.9-10).

My friend Bob Horner says, “When we see people as losers, we treat them with contempt. When we see them as lost, we treat them with compassion.”

Jesus doesn’t see losers, only lost people He loves. When we look at others, who do we see?

Oh, give me, Lord, Your love for souls,
For lost and wandering sheep,
That I may see the multitudes
And weep as You did weep. —Harrison
Those who have been found should seek the lost.

Read: Luke 19:1-10

The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. —Luke 19:10
Bible in a Year:
1 Kings 1-4

Good Morning Mayor. Once again ODB provides us with a great devotion.

Got a follow-up visit with my Dr. this morning up in Sacramento. Things are going okay except for the continuing pain and weight loss. I haven’t weighed this amount since my early high school daze. If I turn sideways I disappear from people’s vision. ;^)
