" Begin the day with God "
.
"Time is so precious - please do not waste it "

Good Morning.
.

The first thing that I am going to tell you this mornin is that Jim my son is going to have a knee replacement this morning, He enters the hosptal at 7 A.M. He is the one that writes Tennessee Granddaddy . Here is his email address jrw5255@gmail.com.

..
Well this is # 2 on our new 5 day schedule that I am enjoying so much, It is a good thing that I have this or I might have had to stop altogether, and you know that I don't plan to ever do that as long as I am able to peck on this keyboard, and a mind well enough to come up with a few thoughts to make you smile, and how to produce tomatoes. Dad .
.
My friend Joan sent me this article below, I think that it is interesting. If we do not have permission to use it would you let me know and we will gladly remove. Dad.

I get cards to purchase from all different organizations in their efforts to raise money. The photo on this card and the brief bio of the woman Sherida caught my attention because of the "Tomatoes". For this woman, tomatoes are her business and keep her family feed, clothed, and schooled.
Sherida

Sherida Mkama: mother of 10 and owner of a produce business, Village Bank member in Tanzania

Sherida began selling tomatoes in 1995, starting her small business with only $10. All of her profits went towards her family's basic needs.

In 1998, Sherida heard of an organization that offered loans to women in her area. She used the money from the loan to purchase parts for her bicycle used to transport the tomatoes.
She also purchased seeds and fertilizer and began to cultivate her own tomato garden.
.....






It is time for some of that Starbucks Sumatra x bold and I smell it perking. While we wait why don't we go see my three friends Sara, Misty and Oreo. Just click on Sara's Dog Training blog and Sara will bring us up to date, I could use some good news this morning. I can enjoy my coffee better after I have heard from them.DAD.

MONDAYS ENTRY TWO THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED THIRTY SIX

" Live for others every day ''.
.
Good Morning.
.
How are you feeling on this Monday morning, it seems so long since I talked to you, but it was only Friday. Any way a lot has happened since then. We did have a nice time at Jim and Beverly's on thanksgiving day, but I was one tired man. I am glad to get back in my slow motion, that's the only way that I can operate.
.
I have missed getting my good Sumatra x bold coffee, not many people were using it that we visited ( My grandson Kevin gave me 2 pounds of Sumatra while we were in Kingsport, he had read what I had said about it.) And most of all I missed my friends Sara, Misty and Oreo, but I know how to get there. Here it is and I am going to click on Sara's Dog Training blog and let Sara bring me up to date.
.
This article below is a little long , but if will save even one life it is worth it. DAD
....

They say if you e.mail this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along?
...
Blood Clots/Stroke -

..
They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue
I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters..... S. T. R. STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ....she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.)
.
She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

.It only takes a minute to read this.A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
.
*Ask the individual to SMILE.T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)(i.e. It is sunny out today.)R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue
.
NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. '
..
I have done my part. Will you?

My mood is happy this morning, how about you.

" Happiness is inward, and not outward, and so, it does not depend on what we have, but of what we are"
.
I like this little thought above and maybe we should talk along that line ths morning. The need of being calm and content in this cold and cruel world. Mary and I are so glad for our wednesday night bible study, We are studying Exodus chapters 11 and 12, these little meetings seem to help me to keep going in the right direction.
...
One of my friends told me that he knew that it helped to worry- he said, " Nothing that I worry about ever happens "

TUESDAYS ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED TWENTY SEVEN

" Begin the day with God"
" Time is so precious-do not waste it"

Good Morning
.
How are you feeling this tuesday morning ? We made it through monday and we are sure that we are going to have another good day. I am enjoying my new 5 day plan so much, I am feeling much better. But there is one thing that I am not going to change, that is the time that I write this Journal, it will still be 3 A.M. I am always awake at that hour, usually feeling good and anxious to get to work. And I have always enjoyed the quietness of the early morning, best time to meditate.
..d
Very often you hear me say, What should we talk about next ? I think that I know this morning. I need a cup of Sumatra x bold coffee, and I have a few friends that are like me on that, and then I want to stop in and see how Sara, Misty and Oreo are getting along. They are my friends. I just click on this Sara's Dog Training blog and I wish that you would look at those two smiling faces that come up. How can you keep from smiling. DAD.

"BEGIN THE DAY WITH GOD"
.
Good Morning.
.
. The day of the week that I like best, it is like a new start a clean sheet, a new chance to prove ourselves. So let's all of us do our best today, this includes old Dad.
.
I am so well pleased with my new 5 day plan of writing this journal, Monday through Friday, you may find me a little easier to get along with and not being in a bad complaining mood so much of the time, I think that Mary has already saw a little change, I saw her with a little grin on her face yesterday.
.
I am sure that you know that young man above with that string of fish. If not, it is the best son that I have, Jim and he likes to fish as much as a "cat loves cream ". I tried to find out which TVA lake he was fishing in and he would not tell me,DAD.

This below is very good, please take time to view.

SATURDAYS ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE

 " BEGIN THE DAY WITH GOD"
.
Good Morning.
...
I did not intend to publish this journal today, I have been encouraged by some of my readers and my family to stop. I have been writing this for over 7 years, but I am going to let this be my last one for a while on Saturday. I will still have 5 journals each week as usual

This is going to give me some time to relax and enjoy thinking about how good God has been too me
.
Mary and I have a few plans, East Tenn is a very historic region, The Civil war and many more. we plan to travel to every interesting spot that we can find and bring it to you in picture and story, and when we have finished here move out to other spots.
.
And we want to tell you that we feel that we have the very best Doctors and that Vanderbilt is the very best . And we do trust them in telling us what they have found.And we are going to do what they tell us and be happy, we do have so much to be thankful for, and we do want to keep in the will of God, and never question what comes our way. Mary and Dad.

.This below was sent to me this morning by my friend Jay.
.


THE CHOSEN VESSEL The Master was searching for a vessel to use; On the shelf there were many – which one would he choose? “Take me,” cried the gold one, “I’m shiny and bright; I’m of great value and I do things just right. My beauty and lustre will outshine the rest And for Someone like You, Master, gold would be best!” The Master passed on with no word at all; He looked at the silver urn, narrow and tall. “I’ll serve you, dear Master; I’ll pour out your wine, And I’ll be at your table whenever you dine. My lines are so graceful, my carvings so true, And silver will always compliment you.” Unheeding, the Master passed on to the brass.
It was wide mouthed and shallow, and polished like glass.
“Here! Here!” cried the vessel, “I know I will do. Place me on your table for all men to view.” “Look at me,” called the goblet of crystal so clear. “My transparency shows my contents so clear.
Though fragile am I, I will serve you with pride, And I’m sure I’ll be happy in your house to abide.” The Master came next to a vessel of wood. Polished and carved, it solidly stood. “You may use me, dear Master,” the wooden bowl said, “But I’d rather you used me for fruit – please, no bread!” Then the Master looked down and saw a vessel of clay

Empty and broken it helplessly lay. No hope had that vessel that the Master might choose To mend and cleanse – make it all His to use.

FRIDAYS ENTRY TWO THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED TWENTY FOUR

Down below in this journal Mary tell us about her visit with her doctor at Vanderbilt.
...
"Time is so precious- do not waste it"
.
Good Morning.
.
How are you feeling this Friday morning ? I hope to hear you say fine, and I think that you are. We all are as usual looking, for the rest and relaxing in the days that we will be home. Even though Mary and I were not at home yesterday, I received a lot of comments which we do appreciate, So many appreciated the poem about the old people. A lot of my comments come to me in an email and you do not see them, I am sorry, I wish that you could. Any way I do want to thank all our world wide friends who have been so kind and helpful to us through the years. Dad.
.
I don't have to tell you that we are back home from Nashville safe and sound, you wouldn't be reading this if I was still in Nashville. We arrived at home at 8 P.M. and there was one happy Prince waiting for us. All went well at Vanderbilt. We do appreciate those doctors down there and trust them.
.
Now here is Mary with a note: "
I think that she can explain it a lot better than old Dad can.

Friday, Nov. 12:00, 2 p.m.

Dear Friends, Some of you have been asking about my appointment at Vanderbilt. Thank you for your care.


Jim and Beverly took us (Nov. 11th) and we appreciated that very much.We had a good trip to Vanderbilt. The Dr. is a Specialist in Parkinson's Disease. He and two other Doctors gave me a very intensive Neurological Exam. The illness is progressing, but they made some changes in my medications and added two more. The Dr. said, "Remember that PD is a progressive disease. There is no slowing down of that progression. but we can treat the symptoms" somewhat. The Dr. mentioned that surgery (Deep Brain Stimulation) is an option. I'm not keen on that but it is an option somewhere down the line.
Thank you so much for your interest and care.
Love, Mary


It will be a little later in the day as I am letting her sleep a little longer this morning as she was one tired girl last night. Mary does appreciate all of her friends who were thinking of her.
,
I am beginning to feel the need of a good hot cup of that Starbucks x bold, so while it is perking why don't we look in on my friends at Sara's Dog Training blog. I always appreciate all that Sara tells me about Misty and Oreo, they look so good in the first picture that comes up. Thanks Sara. DAD..
.
We are having so much nice fall weather here in East Tennessee and I am enjoying it to the fullest. It has given me some time to do a little more work on my Wildlife Habitat, and I think that the birds are enjoying it. There is a little extra work in having a Habitat, but it is worth it, Why don't you try one for yourself ?
