Good Morning

I would like to thank Jason, Allison and family for helping me get the pool cover on. The whole family made it look easy but I have done it by myself and it is nothing but frustration as you put one place on and another spot comes off or it just falls into the pool and fills with water ( total frustration).
Again a big thank you.

Good Morning,
 I am short of breath this morning. I have noticed it recently. I may have some congestion or maybe my lungs are smaller. Laurel has a machine to help with the lungs and I may use it sometime this next week.

Good Morning

I am sore, I carried packages in from shopping plus I mowed a few days ago and that does a job on me. Next year I hopefully will hire someone to bounce around our yard. I tried to find a photo of a yard filled with potholes.
2:45 pm
Some wants to use plants as fuel for autos. I think that is a bad idea when we have coal. Coal can be cleaned or made into gases.  Removing a complete plant from the earth to burn as fuel leaves no mulch; grass takes to much of the earth. We need mulch or plant life to turn back into soil to grow other foods.

Off Line For a Bit

Good Morning,
Well we were tested and it seems that the library at our fingertips is quite a change from going to the library or looking something up in an Encyclopedia or Dictionary.

Take FaceBook For Example

Good Morning,
I find when I go shopping on the Internet what I go see follows me where ever I go next and normally is FaceBook.

Wanting More

Good Afternoon,
I always write about my mother being here with me. I have no choice; my father provided me with no clues. My mothers family only said she went off and never came back. So I in my wisdom assume that there are clues on the planet that my mother is on the planet; being so I worship the planet as her home. Yes it is big but there she is if I look at the planet from space.
Sometimes we have to let life move us elsewhere; we never want to let go. In our wisdom life is so simple but in reality we never want things to change.
I do like pictures and the wonderful notes. Natasha and I celebrate the whole month of August. Thank you for the good times and good reflection of our lives. Good memories are welcome.

Good Morning

I am not sure if I put my hearing aids in right but I hear better anyway. I put the earphones on my ears with the aids and I think that is a little too much for me. This laptop does not have great speakers so if I listen to a video I sometimes cannot hear it. The ear phones work well then.

Good Morning

Today seems rather normal to start the day. Yesterday mom and I pulled the steps out of the pool; today I clean the bottom and in the next few days I will cover the pool and drop the water level for the fall and winter. 
Sometime in the next week or two we will be fitted with hearing aids. We went to the doctor and had some blood work done on mom. We have no results as of yet what caused her body to retain water but the doctor told us that having an injection for her back to keep the swelling down will cause her body to retain fluid.

Good Morning

 I have been busy with NARFE this week. Getting ready for the fall roundup. Mom woke up Saturday all swelled up and it seems she is retaining water; its happened before and she took medication for it. It went away on it's own but came back Saturday. I asked could it have been the hearing with the hearing aid and she said no. I feel good even though I had a dream about choice; whether I wanted to go to heaven or stay on the planet. It was a perfectly sensible dream, no fear just common sense.
Some days are more spiritual than others; I know that that statement is not reality but I seem to be aware more at these moments because of the dream.

Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat

Good Morning,
We went yesterday for a hearing test to see if we needed hearing aids? Well we do and they are ordered. Being a retired civil servant one of our benefits is free hearing aids as part of our health care package. Anyway they are ordered and we are just waiting for a call to have them installed. Mine are gray and mom's are brown.
I am working on postcards this morning for NARFE.  I have done 200 of them and I have 200 more to go then the post cards get mailed in bulk. Nine different packages to nine chapters in Western and Central Kentucky.
If you ever have a chance to be a civil servant do so. They pay union scale you get retirement benefits and you get excellent health benefits. When we arrived in Western Kentucky in 1968 my wife was pregnant and when I joined the Corps I was wondering if my wife's hospital bills would be paid for because she was pregnant before I joined the corps. As it turned out all we had to pay for was the booties she got for walking in the room. Everything else was paid for.

The dialect of Spanish my grandmother on my mothers side was more toward the Spanish dialect.

laurel Rose learned Spanish from the folks in Miami who were more from a dialect of Spanish from Cuba.
The reason I am learning this is that I am watching a movie called, "Spirit of the Beehive" written and directed by VĂ­ctor Erice and the language I hear is very familiar.
