This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

Hello all you savvy people out there:: Thanksgiving is getting closer with each day.. The stores don’t seem to have the deals on turkey’s they used to.. Like everything else they are getting really expensive like all things we need to keep us alive.. I feel sorry for all the families that find it hard to feed their families.. The food banks will be hard at work making food hampers for the less fortunate.. If you can spare some money or even some food items.. Please drop them off at the food banks near you and make a hungry child’s Thanksgiving a happy one.. You enjoy your Thanksgivings as I will do the same.. Take care and be safe.. Till later.. Remember others who need help on this holiday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for Thursday September 26th…

Hello everyone:: I hope everyone had a good Wenesday ?? Mine was good.. The winds outside were trying to remove all the leaves from the trees.. At least that is what it sounded like.. It was one of those days that if you did not walk into the wind, you would be eating your hair.. I know because I swallowed a couple strans… All in all the weather this Wednesday was really beautiful.. I’m hoping a lot of you beautiful people have a great day today, and all your ventures turn out well.. I’m going to take off.. Take care of those you love, and be safe.. Till later.. Keep your chin to the wind… ๐Ÿ™‚ :0

This is my banter for Wednesday September 18th…

Hello everyone out there:: I trust all of you had a pleasant Tuesday.. I myself spent sometime in the warmth of the sun on Tuesday.. It was a pleasant treat for all of us.. The bees were busy flitting from flower to flower.. Their buzz could be heard over the soft blowing of the trees.. I had one bee that must have mistaken me for a flower.. It just would not leave me alone until I decided to hide inside till later in the day… I caught a bee attacking a hornet.. I was quite surprised by the sight.. Not something you see everyday.. I did accomplish a lot around the house today, and that felt good.. As I sit writing down my words, I can see the moon lightly covered with thin clouds.. It’s beautiful yet scary at the same time.. Well, I got to go.. Till later.. Take care and be safe…ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for Tuesday September 17th..

Hello everyone:: How have you all been doing?? I trust all is well and good with everyone.. I hope the weather has been great where ever you may live.. It looks like fall is closing in on us.. I like fall and not because it is cooler, but because of the colors mother nature displays for all of us to enjoy.. It will be time soon to remove the gazebo and the yard ornaments… Time to find places to store them for the winter months.. I know that’s sounds depressing, and it is.. It’s coming and we can be in denial, but it will be here before we know it.. Yuck.. We got the notice from our plow guy and that is a sure sign the white crap is coming.. No shoveling the drive for us older folks.. Well, I’m on the run and gotta go.. Take care of those you love, and be safe… Till later.. Have a good day.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello everyone:: I hope your Thursday turned out as you had planned.. The weekend is just around the corner.. A time to rest and rejuvenate..

This is my new edition to my story for July 16th.

Hello everyone out there. I hope your Monday was a good and safe day for you and your family. My day was really nice. I blew up a small pillow, and instantly got a migraine.ย  I have never had that happen before. I have a way to get rid of most of the pain and the partial blindness I experience. The pain I have left is like a dull ache that I am willing to live with. As long as I don’t bend over, the head fells okay. I usually end up with the ‘don’t bend over,’ pain for two days. It’s better than not being able to see right. For our Anniversary we went to Red Lobster. The biscuits they serve are so tasty that they make it hard to finish your main course. Then we had crab stuffed mushrooms. To die for, and oh so savory. I hadย  garlic shrimp and a salad. I ordered breaded shrimp, but the batter was icky. So, I peeled off the batter and ate the shrimps. All in all, it was a fantastic day… Take care of those you love, and be safe… Till tomorrow… Keep smiling… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my last addition to my story for June 28th.

Hello everyone. I had a wonderful Thursday today. I hope all of you had a good Thursday as well. Today it was very hot, and I made sure that the birds, and small critters that come to my back yard have ample cool water to drink.ย  I hope everyone takes the same steps to help out all gods creatures on hot days. Also, I ask that everyone take their shoes off and walk the route you take your dog on when you take them for a walk. You will find out that your feet are burning. This happens to your dog when scorching temperatures are going on. So please be kind to your dogs… Till later.. Have a great weekend… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello everyone out there: Wednesday was a good day for us. I hope your day has been as good as ours was.ย  It was hotter than usual, and I hear that Thursday will be even warmer. I have an issue with the car, and the fact of how darn hot the seats get. And when you go to sit on the seat you burn your butt. It always seems that the side of the car that has the burning seat is always mine. Why the heck is that??? I don’t get it….. Well, I to have to get on the move, so take care of those you love, and be safe… Till later… Keep smiling… ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ย

Hello, Hello. How is everyone doing on this fine day? I trust your Tuesday was an enjoyable one, as mine was. On Monday night there was a lot of rain, and when I woke up the deck was very damp. It was good for the new grass that is trying to take root in the back yard. Wednesday is supposed to be quite nice, and be not too bad through the entire long weekend. Yes, We as Canadians will be celebrating “Canada Day” on July 1st. This long weekend will bring on the use of fire works. I love to watch them from my deck, and not in the crowds that gather down by the lake. Too crowded for me.. Well, I must be on the move, so take care of those you love, and be safe out there…. Till later.. Rock on… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello everyone out there. I trust your Monday was enjoyable. Mine was pretty good. A little on the costly side as the washer gave up the ghost. The motor was dead, and the new one cost a big amount of money. Plus, we have to wait four days for it to come in, and then it will be installed. Then we are back in business. The rain on Monday evening was supposed to be a lot, but so far there has only been a sprinkling. We will have to see…. Take care of those you love, and be careful out there on the roads… Till later… Keep smiling…. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
