Good Morning.

I hope that all is well with you this Friday morning. Things are not very good with us. Jim is sick and in the hospital at Kingsport. Thursday morning he felt some tightness in his chest and felt that it would be best to get to the doctor which he did. The doctor admitted him to the hospital and told him that he had a heart attack, we don't know very much right now but they have plans to do something today. We will let you know how it goes. Jim wanted me to tell you that there will not be any Tennessee Granddaddy blog on Friday.

I will be posting this morning and all day letting you know how things are going with Jim...

Now I hardly know what to talk about, about all I think about this early in the morning is a cup of good hot strong coffee with half and half cream. And I think that a lot of you are just like me. But don't you who love your tea worry it is also ready.

I am very proud of the four links below, Dad...




I would like to remind you that the four web pages above contain most of all the information that you would need to get you started in producing those Good Home Grown Tomatoes and SMILES.These pages are edited daily and any changes that need to be made to keep them current and up to date. After you view them if you have any questions about raising tomatoes email me at

"Un Siervo Fiel del Señor",
It would be nice if the above could be said of us.

I do not know who wrote the thoughts below, but I would like to give credit to whoever did.


Every time I am asked to pray, I think of the old fellow who always prayed, 'Lord, prop us up on our leanin' side.' After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently.He answered, 'Well sir, you see, it's like this... I got an old barn out back. It's been there a long time; it's withstood a lot of weather; it's gone through a lot of storms, and it's stood for many years.It's still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side a bit.So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on its leaning side so it wouldn't fall.Then I got to thinking about that and how much I was like that old barn. I've been around a long time (95+ years ) .I've withstood a lot of life's storms. I've withstood a lot of bad weather in life, I've withstood a lot of hard times, and I'm still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop me up on my leaning side, 'cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times.Sometimes we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward bitterness, leaning toward hatred, leaning toward a lot of things that we shouldn't . So we need to pray, 'Lord, prop us up on our leaning side, so we will stand straight and tall again, to glorify the Lord. ....


Thanks to Helen I found out that the Eagles are back, here below is the link to see them. You will remember that we enjoyed watching so much, we are getting an early start, see them today working on the Cam. I will be showing the link to the Eagles every day m the link is below. DAD...

Oh my goodness, Dad... what unexpected news. Jim has been taking such good care of his health, too. We just never know what a day might bring. My prayers are with Jim and your whole family. Please do come back on today and update us, because we will be wonderng how he is doing and how you are doing, too. It's just like you to still be serving everyone coffee when we should be caring for YOU.

Dad, I will sending up prayers for Jim and the rest of the family. When a family member is in the hospital it is rough on the rest of the family. Going to see about him and doing all that worrying will wear a person down. Hugs to you all. Helen

Lynne said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Jim! I will say a prayer and ask my mother to add him to our church prayer chain. God Bless you and yours!

Kelly said...

I hope that Jim will be okay. Its a good thing he went on to the doctor when things didnt feel right. Might have saved his life. Thankyou for posting about it and letting us know. I will keep Jim in my prayers. I am ready for some coffee this morning...I am going to need it, lots of work to be done this Friday. Give Jim a big hug from me and tell him he is missed. :) Love, Kelly

I'm praying for JIM & HIS FAMILY. Please keep us posted......


P.S. I loved the prayer about propping up the leaning side....

jmuhj said...

My prayers go out, Dad, for your son to be well very soon and back with his family. I know how it is when a loved one is "not 100%" and truly, it's a time to ask to be "propped up on our leanin' side". ;)

May you, Ms. Mary, the Princess beauty, and all of your loved ones stay close to one another and may everyone's prayers be for the right thing, and be answered.

Best to you all, and big PURRS to the Princess beauty ^^
