Scanning the Skies

Good Morning,
Three of us are up this morning, Mom, Kitten-Yarn and I; I was up at 4:00 AM and took my bath early to get out of the way.  So now I relax as activity moves forward with community. I will go to Face Book now and scan the skies.
6:20 AM
I was over on YouTube listening to "Tiny Desk Concert"; very nice.
"Wanting" is a word that is sometimes hurtful as it pertains to wanting others to do what we want. There are a number of outcomes to wanting and a lot of folks want someone to love them. That is a want and it is the most painful so I stay away from wanting somebody to love me. I love the "want" that asks us to understand the reason for the 10 commandments, Or the reason for Kosher Law.

Oh God

Good Morning,
I am listening to Santana. God is in our home. I am not religious but I do think and I did celebrate and I was thankful. I tried to think of a word that that we all agree explains everything we do not understand or why do we understand just about everything. Or you look perplexed and yell at the sky, AHHH Gaaud!
We have a male cat named George by us and i saw him a few minutes ago so I went out and got his dish and filled it up and put it under the protective feeder.I looked out there just now and there is an orange and white short hair out there. looking in the window.

Good Morning,
This year mom decided not to cook but eat out; well she wanted to cook but other plans were made. Dolly follows me around casually; she wants to be in my general area.  She loves to go outside but the outside cats want to chase her away; so she resigns herself and comes inside. I am listening to Santana. Mom is up and on her computer.

Shopping for Christmas

Good Afternoon,

We went to town, ate breakfast at the Dipp (it is the only breakfast other than McDonald's). after breakfast we went to Shop Co and bought a lot of yarn plus cat food and chow.

Cat Nest

Good Morning,
I fixed an area with a heating pad for the cats for the winter; the pad only comes on for about half the time (on and off with a timer); I placed the pad up high on a garden stool to keep it from snow and rain.
Mom asked the other day to check and see if the pad was working, so yesterday I went out there, move a chair, lifted up the black plastic that hangs to the deck and looked; a cat as quick as lightning jumped off the garden stool; I never got to see who it was but it told me that it is warm up there on the garden stool.

Good Morning,

Saturday went to an Arts And Crafts Show in Eddyville where my daughter was selling her wares.
We spent the morning there at the show with Megan and Allison.
That afternoon we went to a Gymnastic Meet in Paducah where our granddaughter was performing. We had a great time there and Our Granddaughter won all her events and 1st All Around First Place.

Hiding Under the Cover of Freedom

Good Morning,

It looks as though if you put Muslim on any paper as your religion you are going to an internment camp. The Muslims in foreign lands have declared war on the Freedoms of the United States and it looks like the United States is not going to take it any more.
I prefer right over wrong but it was not the Freedom of the United States that declared war on us it was the far right Muslim Nations under the cover of United States Freedom.
George Takei is right but the nation voted in Trump; and that is what happens to Muslims who declare war on us under the cover of our freedom.

Up "C" Daisy Oops

Good Morning,
I feel good this morning mentally and physically. 9:00 AM  I started cleaning the garage again; I was working on the lawn tractor hood this past month and I made a mess. I was cleaning that mess this morning. I just came in for a break.

Tent Revival

Good Morning,
I do not know much about my mothers mom Aurelia Chavez Arellanes and her half sister Epigmenia (Mena) Chavez. Mena was a nun that came to our home every Christmas (there was a picture of Mena in the entryway right next to the piano on the wall. She had long Indian braids in the photo) and Grandma and Mena would make Buñuelos (pictured at left). Aurelia Chavez Arellanes, had been well-educated in a convent located, we believe, in Pinos Altos near Chihuahua, Mexico. She had a half-sister, Epigmenia Chavez Hurtado.Don't know much about my mother's family.

My grandmother read the bible constantly in bed and she always had the Watchtower there close by to read. She took me to a tent revival in Los Angeles in the 1940's. It was a series of huge tents and the picture of the event is pictured below.  (my aunts and mom went to the Methodist Church in Pasadena.)
This photo looks exactly how I pictured it in my mind. We went by Pacific Electric Trolley to the events and it always made me car sick (I was always car sick, I stuttered badly and constantly wet the bed).
This is also how we went to see my aunt Virginia in the two story housing projects of Los Angeles.

Organize My Mental State

Good Morning,
I feel good this morning spiritually, mentally and physically. Santana is playing in the background, I mentally dance. My mind goes to good places, I organize my mental state. Last night I went to Coalition meeting. We are always low on funds and we are always helping people.
Now that I cannot work like a mule I paint pictures with my mind and listen to music. I wrote a 30 page novel; now I need to fill it with bull and make it a 200 page diamond. I may cut it up and paste on the wall with post it notes, sing songs between lines, write a muse, rural scenes with Jackson Brown, do magic with graphics. I offered it to Laurel Rose and she just smiled.

New Stove

Good Morning,

I got up around 2:00 AM which is a bit later than what I have been doing. I have been going to bed at 6:00 PM,  sleeping 6 hours,  watching TV then getting up. That puts the time around 12 midnight or 1:00 AM as being my normal.
Our stove has been leaking gas (not a lot but enough to smell) and it is old (more than 20 years old). So we thought that maybe a new stove would not leak as much. I also want to inspect the area in bac of the stove when it is back in place. I will open up a space from the laundry room and view the connections from there. That will tell me if the connection is crimped and if I need to solve that problem.
I feel good mentally and physically.

Sore Back

Good Morning, 
I put some Tylenol Precise pain relieving cream on my back this morning plus I put the back belt on. I had worn the back belt all day yesterday. I also had a headache from the heat of our furnace, it also may have been a hangover from the coffee; it is 40 degrees outside this morning.
I picked all the good size tomatoes off the vines which was a ice cream bucket full of green tomatoes. We had a hard freeze yesterday.

Good Afternoon,
Washed dishes and cleaned the kitchen floor ( a good scrubbing; white and shiny). Went out and work on the hood of the lawn tractor.

Good Morning,
There were two groups that voted against Hillary the most powerful and not vocal at all is the Militia Right that lives in Rural america and runs the farms that feed us all. The other group is the poor folks that go to all of Trump and Bernie Sanders Rallies and want change because they are oppressed and poor. The first group will get all the benefits and the second group will be like me and wonder what happened.
That is Samuel Adams

A Complete Surprise

Good Morning, 
I stayed up until 2:00 AM last night. I finally gave up and went to bed. I was surprised and left empty of words. 
Congratulations are in order but I find it difficult to understand. A landslide comes to mind. What he said will it all come true. Will he end health care; will the EPA dissolve; will no one pay taxes. will our school system lose it's funding, they needed a new school and football stadium.
All of rural America came to vote; will he help the farmers? Will the United States and Russia become allies?
Well when he and his family go to the White house they will be slumming.

The Judge, The Thinker

Good Morning,
The Planet Earth is full of life; I do not know the depth of that thought as I do not know where to separate the solid rock from the movement in the rock. Somewhere along the line life splits in two and evolves eventually becoming a creature as I am. I am not sure where the top is or are we a parallel life form where knowledge is something different; we are the ones that creates structure.
Well I know I am capable of thought, back in 1950 I thought the same way but I did not have the Internet of knowledge as we do now and I was young and naive. I did think in the 1950's that I would make a good judge and I did want to be a thinker.
I am going over and do a survey as that seems the only place that pays me other than my retirement check.
3:00 AM
 I am back after writing something in Facebook.

Good Morning, 
Listening to Neil Young in concert nice. I am 75 years and tired, worn out and fighting to enjoy my time on the planet earth, taking my time breath. It is a wonderful feeling being able to see the sights and sounds around me. Running and throwing baseball is done. I have the Internet, a television, a satellite viewing system, a radio, a warm home with a sewer system that is extremely dependable thanks to the accumulated knowledge of man.

I live in a quiet neighborhood in Western Kentucky where soldiers come home and forget about defending the perimeter for a time. I know their are other human being on guard, watching the skies with RADAR and the seas with SONAR. I know it is a constant vigil of young men looking at screens across the nation at our local airport. When I was growing up there was a DEW Line, (I wanted to work there) it has been replaced with the North Warning System (NWS). Out in the ocean there is a fleet of Submarines underwater keeping their eye out for unwanted neighbors.

Good Morning,
It looks as if I missed a day (Ah I did turn the time back a day). Well the soreness in my back seems to be gone; I think it was me bending over out in the garage that caused that problem.
Congratulation to my grand daughter; she is in a marching band (this year she is a flag) last year she was playing an alto sax.

Good Morning,
I have been messing with Trump this morning as he is a werewolf. At the moment he is drugged and calm and under the influence of his handlers.

Chicago Cubs Win the World Series

I watched the game and it was great; I had no clue as to whom would win. I wrote this on the 3rd of November but did not post it. So I will post it now.

A Red Button

Good Morning,

I have been up since 1:00 AM and mom was already up. We are still up. Just a few minutes ago I looked down and saw something red on the carpet; after closely examining it I sat holes and white thread, it was a button the size of a keyboard "O". Pause and think; "a nice theme song" I then assumed that it was a button from a Megan Doll.

Victory At Sea

Good Morning,
I am up early, I have  football game taped over on my DVR. I may watch it today. I watched part of "Victory at Sea" via my ChromeCast and our big screen. When I start again I go with number 4 four.
