‘’ I must have the Saviour with me, for I dare not walk alone “

Good Morning.

That is my thought for this and  ever day that I may have left, “ Must “ is a strong word, it don’t  say maybe you could make  it but you “ must “ have the Saviour with you.

In this cold, cruel, selfish world that we are in is going to be a struggle for us all, without the help of our Father above we can never hope to make it. The world, flesh and the devil are to much for us alone. The devil is out to destroy us,  and our flesh is called cruel so we “must” begin, continue and finish ever day with our Fathers presence very near, think about this it is a serious matter.

Would you like a little pit stop for something that might help keep us awake, as you  know this is all make believe  but some of us coffee lovers enjoy doing it, I have Sumatra x bold in the pot. You will be smelling it soon.

I have been reading about two men that are spoken about in the bible, Moses and Joshua. It is their ages at their death that impressed me. It said about Moses that he was one hundred and twenty years old, and it says that his eyes were not dim nor his natural force abated.

And is says about Joshua  died being a hundred and ten, and it says that Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua.

Two very faithful men on the sunset side of life and still serving God and being a help in his kingdom, these thoughts inspire me to desire to keep on going to the last step of the journey, doing the little that I can do, trusting God every step that I take. Dad realizes that the health of all of us has something to do with this, but whatever comes across our path we can keep true in praying.

I hope that I have not bored you this morning with all this, when I get something on my mind it is a relief to talk about it---- Remember to “ Live for others “

I hope to slip in again in the morning.

Good Morning.
I am sure that you have heard me say is that I like Monday mornings, I like the thought of having a new beginning a chance to do better than I did last week, that is very merciful of God to give me another chance.
I am in a Happy mood this morning, and I have good reason to be, Mary is feeling much better, able to move around better, and even turned on here computer for a little while, we are just taking  things easy not rushing anything but you never know we might go out sometime this afternoon Thanks to all of you for your kind words that have come our way, true friend are priceless. DAD.
I want to tell you right here that Mary has a Birthday on February the 5th. DAD
Would you appreciate s cup of Sumatra Starbucks x bold coffee this time of the morning, you had better look at the time before you answer me, it is now 2:24 a m.

We do appreciate good coffee and I think that we have the best, and I have a lot of friends that agree with me I don’t  have very much to brag about when it comes to my education, only finished the 8th grade at Whites School , but I am a good coffee taster anyway. DAD

    This is going to be all until I talk to Mary, she is taking some extra rest which I know is badly needed. Prince is with her and has been since she had the fall, he ran to her down the steps when he heard her cry and has been with her most of the time since.

    I want to talk to her again before I give you a report.

    I am missing her so much here in the office, I know that you can tell by these terrible entries on our blog.

    I must tell you about Jim and Beverly and what they did for Mary and I yesterday, I really should just write another special blog to tell you about it, but I can tell you more as I go along, first they got here about noon and brought our lunch, and then the work started, as you know Mary had the fall and was not able to do any laundry and other cleaning getting things ready for Sunday morning meeting, well that is all done now. And Mary usually does all the grocery shopping,so Jim went with me to get our groceries for the weekend, I am just going to stop talking, I think that you get the idea, what would we have done without them. Thanks Jim and Beverly.


    God has had mercy on me all my days, and if he continues that mercy I will see you Monday with I hope a “ winning Smile “

    I will be around the rest of this day to post any new things that come in.

    You know all about “ Living for others “ and I hope that we all do it-----

    “ If you can’t be a tree on the t0p of the hill then just be a small bush down below, and Dad would like to give you some sound advice. “Don’t be what you ain’t, just be what you is “ maybe not proper language but good advice anyway. DAD.

    Good Morning.

    I forgot to tell you that when Mary fell on Wednesday night, it was on the concrete floor in the basement so that made it worse. She is still dazed and hurts really bad. I promised to keep all of you updated on Mary's progress. It is going to take a lot of rest, her shoulder injury that was the worst is still very sore and painful, she is so sore that it is a real problem to dress. Very limited movement with her arm.We did get a pleasant surprise when we visited her dentist, he was able to do an extra good job on her teeth.

    I am your friend, I try to always remember our coffee, and you don’t have to worry it is always the same Starbucks Sumatra x bold. Every morning as I write this I am wishing so much that it could be really true and not make believe , but its fun any way, and it could be true if you ever come close  Dads house, I have invited several of our friends to do that, Mary and I could meet you at a Starbucks store or you could come right here to Dads kitchen, that way you could meet Prince, that would make him happy.

    Here is a quotation that I noticed in a book yesterday that I like and I am going to use it myself more, it says “ A winning Smile “ Don’t you like that.

    Good Morning.

    What about your mood this morning? Mine is Happy and I hope that you are there with me, You know that our smiles go around this world, we can prove that by pictures and comments that we have received, Readers Digest says and I agree with them that “ Laughter is the best Medicine” so you and I need to help them all that we can. You remember that I often say that my business is producing Tomatoes, Roses and Smiles, now Readers Digest what do you think of that. DAD

    I will get that Sumatra Starbucks x bold in the pot in a very few minuets, sit and we will visit while it s perking.

    Wednesday, January 25, 2012


    “ Your time and life are so very short- please do not waste even one minute of it “  Dad.


    Are you in a Happy mood this morning ? Oh, come on we need to be happy today. Dad


    Coffee cup animation


    This is a silly question for me to ask, is it to early for coffee, I can hear you saying not if it is Starbucks Sumatra x  bold. Well I assure you that is what is perking, sit down and I will serve you in a very short time. But you must smile for me if you drink my coffee Dad.

    Our local weather is looking real good, right  now at 12:38 a.m. the temp, is 45 degrees and no rain in sight,  but don’t count on that very long, it rains almost rains in the afternoon.

    Mary and I have not thought of any plans yet for today except the fact that we will be in our Wednesday night meeting tonight, which will be at our  house at 7:30 p.m. The study is 1st Peter, chapter 4.

    Mary and I have three outside Cameras that we are very proud of. CAM. 1,2 and 3, and we spend lots o time keeping these in good condition, because I think that they are the heart of our blog and all that we are trying to bring to you. Number 1  travels around every where showing you tomatoes and roses growing and it spends a lot of its time on old Dad showing him working on our blog, and drinking x bold coffee, maybe just a short nap. The other two are one looking south and one looking north from my office.

    “ Ask Gods blessing on your work, but don’t ask him to do it for you “

    “ I firmly believe that a great many prayers are not answered because we are not willing to forgive someone “

    “ God gives us the nuts but he does not crack them “

    “ Cast thy burden upon the Lord and he shall sustain thee “

    “ Our prayers are often filled with with selfish wants, God gives us what we need”

    Mary and I are working on something that I believe that you will like, A little booklet called “ Poems That Touch the Heart “ These will be written from true happening  in the life of the writer, some of these bring tears to the eyes of the ones who wrote them, there will be three writers in on this, a few pictures will be shown. We will keep you posted DAD

    I must stop this buggy unhook old Pete, get him fed and ready for his hay pile, and get myself inside the warm house. please remember my side panels. We need to talk about money matters pretty soon, because it does matter.

    I will see you in the morning if God continues to have mercy on me,

    Good Morning.

    I am sorry that I have had so much trouble this morning, trouble that is with Live Writer, but I am determined to give you a
    blog today, please have patience with old Dad, he's going to make it, late but late is better than never.
    In the blog that I had started I was talking about one of our hymns that has words like this " And even though things come up that we do not like, but they are for our good and to wean us from this world, what a wonderful thought I want to accept that with a smile
    I was also getting to get some coffee started, not just any coffee, but it must be Starbucks Sumatra x bold, and that is what it is and it will be ready soon, sit and Dad will serve.Cup
    These blogs are read in
    cities of this world, I want to thank all of you who follow us each day. It seems very far away, but the computer makes it near.. I invite you to watch my # 1 Cam, when you have the time, I am having lots of fun with it DAD

    I had intended to write lots more, but I think that I will just tell you that I love you, and quit for a while and have a nap with Prince, when Mary comes in if she has anything I will have her post it.
    I hope to see you in the morning under better conditions, without Style Writer being with us. " Be Good " and "Live for others this and every day.
    BYE      BYE      DAD


    cities  read this world wide  blog 7  days each week. We appreciate all our friends all around this world, and we want to say that we hope that you have a good day, you might enjoy Cam, # 1 today, I am having with it. Dad.

    “ And though disappointments  come they to are best for me, to lead me from this changing world and lead me nearer Thee “
    These two lines are in one of our hymns that we sing often, what a wonderful thought, from here on out I am going to do my best to accept whatever God sends my way, and accept it with a smile, thinking of the fact that He is working out what is good and best for me, if I try to do that job Oh what a mess it would be. DAD.
    I have permission from R.L.Allen & Son, Glasgow Scotland for permission to mention this hymn, it has been a few years since that was done, I am sure that it is still o.k. if not I can remove it.

    Don’t you think that it is coffee time, and not just any old coffee, it must be Starbucks Sumatra x bold, and that is what is perking, I can smell it and I am going to see if it is ready, don’t go away, sit where you are I’ll be right back, some of you be getting ready to pour, now see if you can keep from smiling, even Prince is smiling and he doesn't even like coffee.

    “ Sweet is the rest in bearing of the cross- if we serve God because we love Him It will bring a rest and peace into your live that  nothing else can bring. Serving the world, flesh and the devil only brings sorrow of heart at the end,” Dad.

    Good Morning.

    This is the morning that we love to begin to say a few words, it always reminds me of rest and some time to relax and get refreshed to help us in the week that faces us. In the 51st psalm David ask God for some of these things after he was made aware of his sin.

    And being in a HAPPY MOOD this week will help us and every one that we are with,some one ask and old man that was in a rest home how he spent his day there, I love his answer “ I spend my time sitting down and thinking of all the good things that others have done for me

    If you have missed me I have been having a little coffee break all alone, you could have saw me if you had been on Cam, # 1, That Cam. follows me around all day, gives me no privacy  at all, but that is what I like, this spring  we will be showing you lots of beautiful things such as Tomatoes in all stages of their growth and beautiful Roses, keep your glasses clean. Dad.

    “ If winning  isn’t every thing why do they keep score “

    “ If God had meant for us to go naked he would have made our skin to fit better “

    “ When I was born I was so surprised that I could not talk for a year and a half “

    “ Never ask the barber if you need a haircut”

    “ Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves “

    “ A perfect parent is a person with excellent child rearing theories and no children “

    I do want to thank Readers Digest  for the six good thoughts above, they are taken from Laughter the Best Medicine. I have read and enjoyed Readers Digest for many years, Dad

    I   must begin to pack my bag and get out of here, I have a little work to do on our Sunday morning meeting room. And you remember that I do not close this blog early to day, I keep open for late news.

    Please remember to--

    “ Many years of life are waste, living for thyself alone- Life is so short, why not live if for others “ Dad
    Good Morning,
    I like to find about about all my friends, all around this wide world the first thing each morning. I like to know what kind of a mood that you are in, so I will know how to talk and and not get myself in hot water. I am in a very Happy mood myself, things went well with with us at the Wound Center and then we had a very pleasant visit with Sherry and part of the crew there, The Oxygen is still going strong.
    From the looks of me in the picture below that Mary captured of me this morning, it sure looks like I am in bad need of some of that Sumatra x bold Starbucks coffee. I will get it going in a jiffy.
    Some colorful birds in our back yard, these birds are spending the winter with us,enjoying our Wildlife Habitat, looking at them it makes me want to better of it, and  keep plent of water and food for them,
    Two reds and a jay-1
    A few good thoughts below from Readers Digest, in the book “ Laughter the Best Medicine.
    “ I’m always relieved  when someone
    delivers an eulogy and I realize that I’m listing to it “
    “ Learn to enjoy your own company, you are the one person you can count on living with for the rest of your life “
    “ It’s all right letting  yourself  go, as long as you can let yourself back in.”
    “ My mother used always say “ The older you get, the better you get, unless you’re a banana “
    “ Wrinkles only go where the smiles have been “
    “ Here is the secrete to a happy marriage. Do what tour wife tells you.”
    I think that this is enough of that above, if it does make you smile. I need to check on my book and see how near we are to seeing it come off the press, I am getting anxious to see it.

      I must stop right here and now, I hope that I have not bored you to much, My purpose is to make you smile and enjoy life to the fullest. Have I failed  to do that ? Sorry if I have.
      Please remember the side panel over to your right. I plan to be back in the morning, please do not lock me out

      Good Morning.
      The comment from Sara's aunt should prove to you that I do go to work as ealy as I say, why do
       you not check me some morning ? More than likely I will have the coffee ready, we could have a cup and talk for a few minuets. I love to get on the job early. DAD
      We are going to make an early morning stop to the wound center this morning, then we plan to stop and see Sherry and the staff getting every one ready to the Oxtgen Center.
      Home after that to spend a quite restful day with Prince.
      We do plan to spend some time on the Wild Habitat, those birds and squirels are hungry.'
      I will have lots more to write, my thoughts, maybe a good poem about growing old.
      Here are a few of my thoughts, more later,
      The grass may be greener on the other side, but it is just as hard to cut"
      " You have to be original, because if you're like someone else, what do they need you for "
      " Do you know why fish are so thin  They eat fish "
      The above from Reader Digest.
      This is all for now, but watch out for later, a little about my new book, and a lot of plans that we have for you in Tomato growing time, dont go away I need you. See you soon.

      Good morning.

      " Measure twice saw once "  Good advice from Dad'
      I am running very late this morning , problems with Live Writer, But I am doing alright. I may not get very much posted but I will do the best that I can.
      We are at least having some of that Sumatra x bold coffee, it is ready now, come on in and enjoy your self and get ready to face your boss with a smile.
      We are happy to tell you that all three of our outside Cams. are in working order, and they are in their usual spot, you will see more of old Dad on Cam # 1, we have fun with that one, but just wait until Tomato and Rose season, you will get lots of smiles, and that is one of the things that I am trying to produce the smile that goes around the world, and it is understood in every language.
      The weather is very warm here this morning, at 5:51a.m. the temp. is 56 and for a change I do not think that it is raining. Smile.
      Mary and Prince have not come in yet, they are due any time, we will try to make a few plans for today, most every thing is in good shape, the WILDLIFE   Habitat  always need looking at---hungry birds and squirrels at Dad's house, every thing else is just patiently waiting for April the 1st the day that we get our tomato plants started.
      Good Morning Sherry.

      Good Morning'

      I am posting a little late this morning , Style writer is not working, I am a little slow writing like this, but we will make it, I have learned to not worry to much about any thing that goes wrong, I know that it will turn better soon.
      I am in need a cup of that Sumatra x bold coffee, it is ready and I am ready and I hope that you are ready, so sit and enjoy, and while you are enjoying the coffee tell me about your weekend..

      The three Cams. are in the same place that they were in from the beginning. Number one is our traveling camera, it can go anywhere on our tomato garden the Wildlife Habitat, and any thin else that we might find interesting, some days you may see a lot of Dad either working, drinking his coffee are just taking a shot nap.
      Number two  camera is the one at the Tomato Garden, where we will have more bird feeders, and a good place ts sit and watch the birds and othr animals that pass our way, I spend many hours of my day there during the summer months
      Now number three, this looks out the front of my office window, showing a beautiful bird bath, and feeders. also some or our roses will be there, on this one you will notice the instructions on the left of the screen , please turn on the audio and you might hear me telling you what is going on out there at that moment. Dad.
      I want to say Good morning to Sherry and Dr. Hall this morning, Mary and I have not forgotten you or any of your staff, and we love you all. We will be at the wound center early Thursday morning, would it be o.k. if we came to see you ? Let us know.
      Our book is about ready for you to look at, I will let yo know when it is completed. Dad

I don't seem to be very good at cheering people up.
      I must park this buggy and get out side, and try to earn the salt that goes in my bread today, After looking at that 28 temp.outside I may drink another cup of coffee before I go.
      Do go to the side pannel, there is lots there to enjoy.

      '’ What ‘er  the cost be true to God and  “ Live for others this day "

      “ Time is so short-do not waste it “

      Good Morning.

      Would a cup of our Sumatra x bold coffee get you in a Happy mood right now, Well I am the man that can take care of that at a minuet notice , I stay prepared to keep a fresh pot going all the morning for you, so sit, relax and meditate and Dad will pour, I hope that it is x bold this morning.

      Since we do not have Cam. # 1 back yet it looks like that Cam # 3 will be our best today, here at 7:05 it shows our front Wildlife Habitat. and I will be able to discuss with you things that we are both seeing, well its fun any way. DAD

      Coffee cup animation

      The weather did not get as cold as was predicted, here at Dads tomato garden at 1:07 a.m. it is 29 degrees , and we hope that it will rise above that today, We are interesting in our Wildlife Habitat which you can see by using our # 3 Cam, which  I hope is working. So now # 1 is still out, but as I have already told you our friend Pamala will be here Saturday to begin work on it, we must have patience with her because it may take longer than one day to repair this, but it will be done, Pamala never fails. DAD

      We all have enjoyed # 1 so much, and we miss it, it will be useful when our 50 plants are in the ground . Right here would be a good place to tell you again of the link in the side panel to your right.

      “ Dads Tomato Problem Solver”

      You will be glad to have that where ever you live, and at any part o the season, the tomatoes worst enemy “ blight” is dealt with. Dad.

      I need to go see Sherry and Dr. Hall

      this morning and wish them well as they will be giving those Oxygen treatments, I can see the scene in my mind as different ones come in to get prepared  to start, I have done it many times, Sherry tell ever one that I know, all the staff that Dad Loves them and it would be fun to be there this morning

      And to anyone who does not know much about this just write Dad at


      And he will help you find the way to get started.

      “ The miracle is this, the more we share, the more we have”

      “ Success in life has nothing to do with  “ what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself, Its what you do for others”

      Danny Thomas quoted the one right above.

      I have missed again, no mention about business or making some thing that can be took to the bank, but I am waiting on my book, which is nearing completion , it tells a lot of things about old Dad, interesting, and complete in one book, even all of the blogs that I have written since I began, and lots of pictures  .

      I have an appointment with my regular Doctor this morning, nothing wrong as far as I know, he can’t under stand me, he wonders why at 98 plus years plus I want to keel working, he has been my friend an Doctor for many years, we always have fun teasing one another when Mary and I visit him.

      I must get out of here, but don’t smile, I am going to be back in the morning if God has mercy on me.

      ‘’ Be true today, let not tomorrows with anxious fears becloud thy soul, be true today fret not nor sorrow, thy cares upon thy Father roll.”
      Coffee cup animation

      Good morning.
      I am in a very good mood, considering all the problems  that we had yesterday. As you know our # 1 cam. is not  working, we spent most of the day looking for a new one but no luck. I am going to call my friend Pamela  and see if she will have mercy on me and send me one, she is the one that installed our Cam. system in the beginning and it has giving very good service.
      I miss # 1 so much, we had a lot of fun with it, you could watch Prince and I write this blog every morning or see me drinking coffee or taking a nap.
      We were looking to use it when we begin to get our tomato plants in the ground and when you could see a big red tomato smiling at you.
      I have wanting  to tell you of a link over in the side panel to your right, it says “ Dads Tomato Problem Solver. be sure and click on it is you are a tomato producer, you will be surprised what you find if you read it all right on to the end, Blight, ripe fruit, green fruit and a lot more of interesting and important things about tomatoes.
      I sure would like to visit Sherry and Dr. Hall this morning, and I wish that I could get a good oxygen treatment, but I don’t think that I can do that, but Sherry Mary and I will be at the wound center on Thursday and if we would not be in your way we might stop in after we leave there, I need to see a Sherry smile and get a hug, every one needs a hug now and then, it helps you to keep on going in this rough path of life.
      I hope that my readers will not get tired of me talking so much about the oxygen treatment, it is hard to not mention it when it has done so much for me, and I wish that you could get that help also, let me help you find out more…white6416r@aol.com.
      There is another link over to your right that I would like for you to go there, I did at one time mention Oreo and Chewy almost every day and visit them, they are sweet , and they belong to Sara a friend of mine, the link is “ Sara Dog Training “ click on that and fall in love and get your morning smile.

      “ Time is so precious-do not waste it “
      Good morning’ .....
      Coffee cup animation
      Do you smell that, it has to be Sumatra x bold
      This is the second journal that I have wrote this morning, at 2am I had completed a long one, about 2 hours of writing , and like magic it was gone.I had even received a comment  from Betty. In Hi’
      I am going to make this one a little shorter this time around.
      I was talking about all the good that I have received from Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments, I want to thank Sherry and Dr. Hall for all that they have done for me. I am a walking example of what this oxygen will do for you, I am planning a 50 plant tomato garden this spring, a few months ago that would have been impossible.
      “ Even  though you may be on the right track you may get run over if you just sit there “
      From a father book of wisdom.
      We were also talking about business and the hard time of making a living in this hard cold world, My book that is being written will soon be done and I expect a little help from that. Watch for it.
      My outside cameras have been giving me trouble, # 1 is complete gone, # 2 and # 3 are working, # 1 is the one that I miss the most, with it you can see me working on my blog and Prince sitting there with me, and sometimes you may catch me taking a nap. Mary and I are going out this morning and see what we can find, I am sure that we can have it ready this afternoon
      Our weather is I might say wet, it rains almost every day, raining now with a warm 48.
      I am going to leave our side panel in charge, wander around any where you want to, act like you own the place, I am sure that you will find something interesting.
      I do plan on being here in the morning, if all goes well. Wish me well as I try to save this blog, is I loose this I am going back to bed for the day.
      I am sending my love to my friends around this wide world.
      Be good and kind to every one today.

      Good Morning,

      Oh, What good coffee. I am sure that it is Sumatra x bold. I will pour, you drink and smille.
      Coffee cup animation

      That looks and smells so good, sit down and we will have a cup, and talk about all the good things that have come our way, they have been many and we do not want to forget

      them. We sure do not want to be complainers.


      I have not said anything for a few days, but I have not forgotten about Sherry and Dr. Hall and the wonderful work that they are doing in providing us with those Hyperbaric  Oxygen Treatments. 

      It has meant a lot to Dad, I would not be where I am today if it had not ben for them. Here I am today making plans for a Tomato Garden of 50 plants, and you know what I like to produce, Tomatoes, Roses and Smiles. Dad.

      I am not so sure of our plans for this morning’ We may go to look at some new Cameras, we have been having all kinds of trouble with Cam # 1, it is completely off, Cam # 2 and # 3 were working when I closed last night. # 1 is the one that I enjoy the most. You can watch me as I work and drink my x bold coffee, with Prince at my side.

      Our weather is I might say is wet, it seems that we have rain every day in the early morning it is raining now at 1:45 am and a warm 47 degrees .

      I wonder why I don’t go back to bed for a little while, any sensible person would, but not old Dad.

      It is time for me to talk about business, trying to make an honest living in this mixed up world. Each day it seems a little harder, so we must try a little harder. My book that is being published will be ready soon, that should help me a little I hope. watch for it.

      And I do still have advertising space in this world wide blog, let dad surprise you with a quote  white6416r@aol.com

      We are beginning a new week with a clean sheet, give it the best that you have keep it clean. Dad

      Good  Morning
      I hope that you are in a happy mood this morning, we do need to get of to a good start, and we know what that is. “ Begin the day with God, kneel down to him in prayer “
      Thanks to R.L. Allan & son. This is a line in one of our hymns.
      We had a wonderful day yesterday our meeting was so helpful, I heard a lot of things that I am going to give my best to do. And then to make the day perfect Benna and Sara had a home cooked meal in Dads kitchen with us. I do not enjoy eating out anymore, I think that Mary can beat the best of them , stop in someday and let me prove it to you. Dad
      And I have found some one else who likes Sumatra x bold coffee, Sara, she loves it, a smart girl. And we had plenty of it, and you would have enjoyed the conversation that went on around the table for a good while.

      We have not made any plans for today, hardly know what to do. it is little to wet to break the ground at the tomato garden spot, so I think that patience is the best things to have, we don’t need to worry, the time  will come.
      The side panel is going to have to help me out this morning. You will find a few things there for sale, such as books and advertising space at a  good price. write Dad at white6416r@aol.com  and let him surprise you. 

      We are having  a little trouble with Cam # !, we hope to have it back in service very soon. DAD

      I did talk to the one who is writing my book, it will be ready soon, watch for it.


      I have enjoyed my visit this morning, but I must go. I will be around close so you may see me during the day

      Some Thoughts from Dad
      Good Morning,

      “ Be true today, let not thy soul be filled with anxious fears, be true today fret not or sorrow, thy cares upon the Saviour  roll “
      I hope that all my friends all around this world are in a happy mood, we should be happy just for the fact that we are still in the land of the living, but much more.
      A weekend causes me to think of Relaxing and getting prepared to face the coming week, we will be facing many trials and tests, the old devil will be presenting  to us, we must say to him NO.
      Our Meeting will be at 10 a.m. Sunday morning, Mary and I will be there, and then a lite lunch in Dads kitchen afterwards a few naps with Prince.
      I have already told you lots about  our visit with Sherry and Dr. Hall and the wonderful time that we had, but I forgot to tell you what they gave me, when we left, this below is the hood that I wore in all the oxygen treatments that I had there.

      This will always bring memories of all the help that I have receive there, I feel like I am a walking example of  what the Oxygen treatment can do for you.
      I will be able to have my usual Tomato Garden of 50 plants.
      If any of you would like to find out more about these  treatments write me at white6416r@aol.com and I will help you Dad
      I always keep this blog open for later entries

      “Time is so precious-do not waste it “
      Good Morning,
      We had a wonderful day on Thursday. first we went to  wound center and found good news. Heather was well pleased with the progress on my foot, and has decided that I do not need any more 0xygen treatments. It is wonderful what those treatments have done for me, soon they are going to measure me a pair of new shoes, then who is going to smile.
      Our next stop was to see Sherry and Dr. Hall at the Oxygen office, and did we ever get a Royal welcome. We had not seen them since  I had my last treatment there, Right here and now Dad wants to tell you what he thinks about this wonderful treatment
      There is nothing like it, I am a walking example of what it has done  for an old man, Dr. Hall said that I was his oldest patient 98 plus years old and happy and content with my lot in life.
      If any of you would be interested Dad can tell you the process of getting started ---
      write Dad and he will help you. white6416r@aol.com
      One more time Dad wants to say Thanks to Dr. Hall and Sherry, I am going to have a Tomato garden this year .year. Smile
      One thing that I saw at the Oxygen place was those Big Smile from all the staff, Tell all them that I love them and miss them. DAD
      I must not leave with out having a big pot of Sumatra x bold in the pot and perking, sit down, drink and enjoy while you thing good thoughts about every one that you know, and tell them when you see them that you love them.
      I must go, a lot is left out, the side panel is waiting on you, we will talk about money matters tomorrow. Don’t forget “ Live for others '’

      Good Morning,

      A Nice Poem


      My Beautiful Wife LaVerne. Oh, how I miss her still. She is holding Greg, our first grand child.

      You hear me talk a lot  about “ Living for others”

      I learned  that from LaVerne, she truly did this every day. One of our hymns goes like this,

      “ Live for others every day.

      Be a blessing while you may.

      Ever l0ving kind and true.

      Jesus like in all you do. “

      This hymn was sung at her funeral.

      As I write this it brings back so many sweet memories.Dad

      To day we go to the wound center to see if I can continue to leave off  the oxygen treatment, it has been about 2 weeks since I have been there, and I feel pretty sure that I will not have to go any more. DAD.

      “ The smallest act of kindness is worth more then the grandest of intentions.”

      “ He has  achieves  success when he has lived well, laughed often and lived much.”

      These two above are from “A Fathers Book of Wisdom “

      I don’t  seem to have any plans for today, it  rains so much every day that you don’t  know what to plan.

      Tomato season is on its way, I am afraid that it will be here before I am ready  Lots to do and I have scarce begun. But I am  going to have to quit taking so many naps with Prince and go out and get my clothes and hands dirty.

      I must be getting older than I thought , I forgot to  start the Sumatra x bold coffee.I will do that right now, in about 15 minutes one of us will serve you, Sit in that rockers over there.

      All three  outside cams 1,2,3 are in service and working  good at the present. I am having fun with # 3, when it is working good I can talk to you on it. I cannot see you are know anything, and I can only tell that some is  is there. If you have any problem getting on # 3 write me and I will help you white6416r@aol.com

      I must stop and get in the harness, I have not mentioned  my side  panel or any ways of making an extra dollar, if you know how let Dad know right away.

      I hope to see in the morning if all is well. while I am gone do remember to, “ Live for others “

      Remember the nice clean sheet that God is giving us this second day of a new year 2012, this clean sheet if for the whole year, it is nice and clean right now, it will need to be watched daily, don’t let any spots build up, it can happen before you know it. Here is a little secret God would like to help you.

      Good  Morning.

      Note: Our Cam # 3 is not in service, out for repairs, will be back soon. Dad

      Are you read for the battles that face us this coming year, we do not know what we will face, God in his kindness has hid the future from our view, would it not be bad if we knew what was going to happen to us on the morrow, one thing for sure our trust is in the living God.

      “ If I had known  that I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself “

      Jimmy  Durante said this, and Dad says  it also

      I do not know what is going on, its discouraging when you write several hours and it all goes away, we will try to replace what we can remember

      Something has happened to what I wrote early this morning. Sorry.
