Our local Senior Citizens group serves meals every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  We deliver these meals or they may be ordered and picked up.  Many persons also dine in.  We have a group that we call early those three days to find out if they want a meal.  Our primary caller Mary fell and broke her femur.  I was ask to fill in calling while she recovered.  Of course I agreed to help.  Now Mary has returned and the other two callers have insisted that I fill in for them on a regular basis.  I don't want to ...I don't want to ...I don't want to ...But I will.

 Basically Everything About Thanksgiving Is a Lie

You know that happy meal between Native Americans and the Pilgrims where everyone bonded? Well, the real story of Thanksgiving is awful, and actually consisted of plagues and violence and murder. Also, there's no evidence turkey was actually served—or that native people were invited to the meal.

Her parents told Susie the ROGUE was a FOOLISH WASTE OF TIME. Randall kidnapped Susie and took her to PARIS. Her mom and dad were frantic to get her home and by some miracle they managed it. The pair of lovers then communicated in their own way, READING SECRET MESSAGES written in CYRILLIC. Her parents found the packet of bound letters in Susie's PINE GREEN box.  They were OVERCOME with grief, knowing their child would definitely PERISH under this man's trance. The took the messages to the PARISH and let their priest read them. This religious leader demanded Susie be given NEW ORDERS in the family. It was time to lock her in the basement.

Ron and I visited an elderly lady very often. It did not matter if we stopped by in the early morning, afternoon or evening, she was ALWAYS dressed and made up nicely. My thoughts went to that lady yesterday as I was stepping out mid-afternoon still in my pajamas, no makeup and without my wig. It is time to start making an effort to be more like that lady... in case the ambulance has to come for me.

The Bloody Mary Wasn't Always Called a Bloody Mary

 The popular brunch beverage and hangover cure didn't actually start off as being called a Bloody Mary. Nope. It was actually called A Bucket Of Blood   Appetizing… After Bucket Of Blood, it transitioned to Red Snapper and, finally, Bloody Mary.

We call this place NOL-NOC Estates.  (No Ones Looking No One Cares) Our ten acres above the lake were purchased 17 years ago.  There are neighbors near but none within our sight. Now the land across from me has been purchased and clearing of the land has started.  My front window curtains are opened every morning as usual but the the view has changed.  It feels like living in a fish bowl.  It is my hope that they will build far enough back that we won't see every move of one another.  I have heard that they are very nice people. But... have you ever watched the TV show on ID called "Fear Thy Neighbor"?

Captain Morgan Actually Existed

Yes, face of the well-loved rum brand was a totally real guy. He was a Welsh Privateer who fought alongside the English against the Spanish in the Caribbean in the 1660s and 1670s. His first name was Henry and was knighted by King Charles II of England. His exact birth date is unknown, but it was sometime around 1635. He died in Jamaica in 1688, apparently very rich.

A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding... Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.
Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic camera again flashed.
He tried a fourth time with the same result. He did this a fifth time
and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this
time at a snail's pace...
Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a
seat belt...
(I apologize if you had heard this because I had not and thought it was hysterical!)

Life is changing a lot for me.  Every day looking in my mirror I wonder how my mother got in there. There is a new little pain here and there and more wrinkles.   It is Sunday, January 8, 2023.  Lots of tasks are calling me but life started on the wrong side this morning.  My pills were in the right place but the order was not correct.  The night pills went down first then, realizing my mistake, I took the morning pills too.  Now filled with too many pills I shall await the consequences of my actions.    Should I try to do laundry and clean house or just sit and await my fate from the pill overdose.  At least they are all prescribed medications. See you later...I hope.

Mary Actually Had a Little Lamb

Everyone knows the nursery rhyme "Mary Had A Little Lamb," but you probably didn't know this was based on true story. Her name was Mary Sawyer. She was an 11-year-old girl and lived in Boston and one day was followed to school by her pet lamb. In the late 1860s, she helped raise money for an old church by selling wool from the lamb.
