WEDNESDAYS ENTRY THREE THOUUAND ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY ONE .DAD'S

" Full of pep and ready to go, Are you ?




Good Morning.




I am coming to you full of Vim, Vigor and Vitality, do you want to join me ? We are going to have so much fun this week. You can see that I did sleep in a little this morning. As I write it is 6:25 a.am. I usually have about 4 hours of writing done by this time, Now it is going to be a little more relaxed life for me and I hope that you will be there with me.



The above caused me to think of something that happened in my young days, that was a long time ago. In one of my first jobs I worked a feed store and we sold a chicken feed called " Full of Pep " and there was a picture of two roosters fighting on the front of the bag, some of you may remember that feed, it was a good and popular feed. I would like to hear if you have.



I am not going to say more right now, just wanted you to know that I am here and in a happy mood, tonight is our Bible study night, our study is Colossians chapters 1=2 and 3.



I will be outside for a little while than back to the house to sit with Prince, I am not gone for good, I am as close as my phone 616-577-8495

DADS SPECIAL TUESDAY'S ENTRY THREE THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY.

Good Morning,

Hello Every One, Every Where

I feel that I want to share with you a word or two about a medical procedure that I am to have this morning. You might remember that I've been having a lot of trouble with circulation in my feet. Well, the doctor wants me to have an angiogram. By doing this they can see if they might need to put a stent in my leg to open up the blood flow to my feet. This would help my foot to heal where I have an "ulcer."  The procedure is to be around 10 a.m. today.  My doctor is Dr. Akers and his assistant, Bobbi.They have done so much for me and I trust them fully.

I don't know how long this will take or when we will be back home, I think maybe in the late afternoon ,we will give you a report on how it went. I don't want to ever keep anything from you my faithful readers

Today

A few clouds. Hot. High 33C. Winds light and variable.

Sunshine. Hot. High 92F. Winds light and variable.

BYE     BYE      DAD

WE just arrived home from the doctors office it is now 6:08 cp.m. All went well, so now maybe we can write a descent journal and not be always feeing   bad. I hope to see you in the morning with a smile.  DAD

" We have reached the point where  two many folks want to retire before they go to work "

Taken from Over the Hill and on a roll.

    Good Morning to you on this Saturday morning, a favorite morning for all of us. We think of a little rest and relaxing  for the next two days. I am not so sure about us. We have been invited by Jim to a  cabin that he has on Douglas lake for lunch.

    My niece and here husband are going to let us ride with them, which we do appreciate. We will return in the early afternoon to get everything ready for our Sunday morning meeting.

    BYE BYE TOMATOES, yes the season is over, when you view Camera  # 2 today you will see a mostly vacant spot, but just give me a few more working days the first of the week and I hope to be able to show you a Wildlife Habitat that the birds and every other wild creature that comes our way will SMILE.

    friends who understand me better than myself,

    who support me through good days and bad days.

    They are like colorful anti-depressants that I take on different days.

    Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health.

    Dr. Oz calls them Vitamins F (from Friends) and counts the benefits of friends to our well being.

    If you take Vitamin F constantly you can be up to 30 years young a "different" part of me...

    With one of them I am a polite,

    I joke with another friend.

    I sit down and talk about serious matters with one of them.

    With another I giggle at every silly thing.

    I have my coffee with one

    And dance with another.

    I listen to one friend's problems and give them advice

    Then I listen to another advising me.

    They are all like pieces of a jigsaw,

    When completed they form a treasure box.

    A treasure of friends!

    They are my friends who understand me better than myself,

    who support me through good days and bad days.

    They are like colorful anti-depressants that I take on different days.

    Our bible  study for night, we are studying Nehemiah  chapters 9 & 10. We know that we will get help from the 2 chapters. Dad.

    Good Morning.

    I hope that all my world friends are doing as good as I am this morning, we do not know what the future hold for us, but it is a comforting thought God up above does and he cares.

    Joan is getting us off on something that might produce a smile, and we need one right now, look below and smile. DAD

    My forgetter's getting better,
    But my remembered is broke
    To you that may seem funny
    But, to me, that is no joke

    For when I'm 'here' I'm wondering
    If I really should be 'there'
    And, when I try to think it through,
    I haven't got a prayer!

    Oft times I walk into a room,
    Say 'what am I here for?'
    I wrack my brain, but all in vain!
    A zero, is my score.

    At times I put something away

    Where it is safe, but, Gee!
    The person it is safest from
    Is, generally, me!
    W
    hen shopping I may see someone,
    Say 'Hi' and have a chat,
    Then, when the person walks away
    I ask myself, 'now who was that?'

    Y
    es, my forgetter's getting better.

    Congratulations! You just had your first visitor from Afghanistan.

    You may have noticed the mess on Camera # 2, what that is we are removing the old tomato plants and making this into a Wildlife Habitat for the winter months
