This is my banter for Monday August 19th..

Howdy doo everyone:: I hope you are all well, and had a great time with your families over the weekend.. I had a very good time with my family as well.. It rained here Saturday morning and I believe Friday night.. What ever day it was the grass and plants loved the rain.. The grass looks like it shot up over night.. It almost looks like it had never been cut.. I guess that is what the real rain does for plants.. Sunday it poured like crazy for a matter of twenty minutes.. The wind got to blowing really hard, and boom the clouds opened up and dumped rain.. I happened to look out the patio door, only to see a squirrel hanging onto the bird feeder, and sheltering it’s self under the hood of the feeder.. It was quite funny, and I actually got a photo of him hanging on for dear life.. Nature has such humour that it can give up sorrow, or laughter.. ‘I got to get this butt of mine off the couch, and get to work… Till later.. Don’t sit under a tree with birds in it… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Monday August 12th.

Hello everyone.. Well that was another weekend done and over with.. We are starting another week. We will be drawing even closer to the middle of August, and creeping up on the last long weekend of summer.. This spring and summer have flown by like the geese that fly over head.. I hope allΒ  of you enjoyed your time with your families and friends.. The smell of barbeque still linger on my mind as I sit with a full belly.. I think it feels like a nap is coming my way.. Took a trip to visit family at a camp ground. The place was great, and I wouldn’t mind going there to stay myself.. If anyone went camping this last weekend, I hope you all had loads of fun and relaxation. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and breath in the fresh air.. Well, I need to work on getting rid of this rotten headache… You all take care.. Till later.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for August 8th.

Hello everyone.. Today was my chance to get away from home and go visit. I wanted to see my grand-baby Parker and his mom. Today he was three months old, and he has grown like a weed. My how time flies.. It’s nice to get away for a few hours. I don’t do that as much as I should. But I’m doing my best. Grant you, during the winter I will likely not be out as much.. I can drive the roads with no problems. After all I’m an old trucker.. When I did that job, I loved the traveling to different place in the USA. I even got to see the ocean for my first time. It’s beautiful. If you’ve have never seen it before, make the trip it is worth it. I met a lot of nice people and some pretty nasty ones. I want to travel, and live in a motor home for a couple years. But that seems to be nothing more than a dream.. Well I must go.. You take care… and I’ll see ya tomorrow… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for August 6th…

Hello everyone.. I trust all of you had a great fun filled long weekend. The weather in this corner of the universe was quite hot during the day, and cool in the evenings. Cooler temps at night always make sleeping much nicer. The heat tends to keep all of us night owls up for most of the night. I have somewhat of a hard time sleeping, as I tend to think too much, and walk a million miles, brought on by restless leg crap. One way or the other I fall to sleep in the wee hours of the morning.. While I was sick and off for the last week, I had no problem sleeping for the first few days. I guess, being sick will cause that. I’m feeling some what better, but the head aches keep returning. I will not go to the doctor, as the majority of them are quacks. I have learned how to put the pain at bay, but it’s usually not far away…. I appreciate your kindness, and your patience.. Till later… Keep the right side up… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is the last part to my story for Friday July 25th.

Hi everyone… The heat has struck the world again. This weekend will be quite warm and sticky. If you are a lot like myself, people will find us inside by the fan that blows the most cool air. I do not like the humidity. I have this thing about my clothes clinging to my sticky body. It feels like, trying to get dressed after stepping out of a shower. And not getting dried off enough. Just one of those things I’m not finding, my most fondest thing to do.Β I hope that if it is hot where you live, that you could do me a favor. Please make sure there is water outside for the furry, feathery, and hairless critters that depend on us to help them stay a live. Bring our pets inside, and out of the heat. Hydrate often, check on seniors, and your neighbors to make sure they are okay.. Lend a hand when ever you can…. Someone will appreciate you for it… Till next week.. Have a great weekend and Friday…. Be safe… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is the next part to my story for Thursday July 25th.

Hello all you fine people out there.. Wednesday was a great day, with warm temperatures in the morning and cool temperatures in the afternoon. It is currently seventeen degrees Celsius. Just the right kind of weather for sleeping comfortably. Today was my grandson’s birthday. He turned fourteen. My how time flies. A baby one day and a teen the next. Thursday is surgery for one of my dogs. It’s just spay, and really nothing to worry about. But, worry I will, after all she is so little and tiny. I will worry till I get to bring her home in the evening…. She will be in good hands as the doctor is really nice… Well, Till Later…. Keep hydrated when it’s hot, your life depends on it… Keep smiling… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next part of my story for July 22nd.

Hello all you wonderful peoples. How was your weekend, and your Friday? Ours was very hot, and when I walked out the patio doors it was like I’d run into a wall. I found my self feeling like I was having a hard time breathing. Like that elephant you see sitting on the guys chest in the commercial about POCD. I didn’t spend much time out there. Just spent my time inside cleaning up for company on Saturday. That day was one of the hot days too. I cooked on the barbeque so the house did not get hot. Going out made me sweat like crazy. But the dinner turned out really good. I made beer can chicken and pork tenderloin. They turned out just right. Strawberries, and whip cream to end off the dinner. I love cooking for others. It’s my thing… Well, this gals gotta get moving… Take care of yourselves and be safe…. Till later… Keep cool… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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.Β  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 hadΒ  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… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is the last addition to my story for July 12th.

HelloΒ  everyone.. Thursday was a hot muggy day. As the weather forecaster had predicted. By the end of the day there was a cool to cold wind blowing. That made it nice to sleep. I have no idea what Friday, nor the weekend will bring but I pray it will be a great weekend, and a good Friday. Today I had two baby robins fall out of their nest into our backyard. It was their first flight I guess. I freed one baby from the fence, and the other one just appeared on the top of the wooden fence. I watched as mom and dad Robins, fed the little ones enough food to give them the strength they needed to fly. I was happy to finally see the little ones following their parents back to the nest. Now I will be able to sleep well….. You have a great weekend when you get to it… Till later… Be safe… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next edition to my story for July 11th…

Hello everyone. Wednesday was really hot here in my corner of the world. I hope that all of you had somewhere safe, and out of the heat to hide out in. I stayed inside most of the day, and as the sun was going down I ventured outside to sit. I hope those that work in factories, plants, or whatever you may call them. I hope they have ample air conditioning. The work and safety board, I believe has set a temperature that is the max it has to be set at in most places. The temperature they have chosen for factories is way too low to help beat the heat. Sure there are fans used to blow the hot air around, which I believe that is futile.. My son works in a place that only has air conditioning in the lunchroom. WOW!! He said where he works it was 42 degrees Celsius. That should be against the law.. The company should be fine by the law for not providing a safe temperature to work in… I recall a man that died in a bakery a few years back and the temperature there was 44 degrees Celsius. He Died in that heat.. I hope all of you are keeping cool and drinking lots of water.. If you feel dizzy, or faint get help right away… Till tomorrow… Be safe… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
