A dash of HUMOR

So I Lost My Phone…

….and my life pretty much stopped. 😂. I’m not exactly sure when I lost it? All I know is that for a couple of days I was aware that I didn’t have it.  As the week wore on, I knew I would need it by (this past) Friday and so looking for the lost phone intensified. I looked everywhere. Every…

Game of Thrones Finale-*sigh*

Well for our bloggers that are really sick of seeing these GoT posts, this will be my last. The battle for “The Iron Throne” is over, like literally and figuratively, Drogon melted that metonymic chair down to what was essentially lava. Good boy, Drogon! I did love this entire scene! I loved that Drogon (who btw in the books they…

life lessons from LEO

You know it’s funny. We grew up without really ever having “pets”. Sure we were surrounded by animals on the farm and there was the occasional “farm” dog but beyond that I never had that whole Lassie experience (except on TV) as a child. Most likely it was because there were just so many of us kids to keep track…

How My Siblings are My Peeps.

The other day I asked a patient that I was caring for who they had with them (a normal question we ask all patients) as they sat there alone in the pre-op room, assuming that even though they were there alone their family would come later. “Will someone be here to pick you up after surgery then”, I asked. “No,…

The Thing About Hands

As far back as I can remember, my grandma Elsie had the same hands.  They were not pretty hands, in fact, they were quite disfigured.  They were covered with age spots and scars, from a life of hard work both inside, and out.  Her hands were gnarled and twisted from arthritis, with her fingers taking a definite turn away from…

A Memory of My Mom

So I thought of mom today. I was sewing and I couldn’t help but think of her, after all she taught me to sew. As a young girl, my mother always seemed to be sewing. She was a talented seamstress. In fact, she made some of my bridesmaids dresses for my wedding. I remember as a young girl, standing next…

A Funny Story

My sister Ally texted us the other day reminding us of the year that our dad brought home a HUGE tree for Christmas!  Honestly, I remember bits of this but this is me writing the story via ALLY’s MEMORY…..why doesn’t she write it, you ask?  Great question! Our childhood home was quite large (bought during the “good years”).  There was…

His Day

Here we are October 25th.  I can’t believe that we are nearing the end of 2018.  Time flies, faster and faster with age! October is filled with some fun things!  Halloween for one!  SO fun for the kids and this year I decorated a bit more for this scary evening!  We also have a lot of birthdays this month.  It…

In The End

It seems often my mind will wander back over the years at the times or the things that I should’ve or could’ve done differently.  It starts simply enough, any little thing will trigger the memories.  This day, it started with the movie A Star Is Born.  I have already given enough testament to how great I think this movie is,…

Puff The Magic Dragon

I was flipping through the stations the other day as I was driving our ’97 Buick (there is only a radio or cassette player), and I happened upon the song Puff the Magic Dragon on an oldies station.  Immediately I was transported back to my childhood and found myself in my cousin Pammy’s (aka, Pamela, our co-blogger (I am the…
