This is my banter for Friday September 27th…

Hello all you wonderful peoples:: I hope everyone had a great Thursday and you are all home safe and sound.. My day was wet as the rain fell not once but several times.. At one point there were thunderstorms with hail.. “Ya, I thought Hail??” I sure did not see any in my part of town, but I did hear the thunder roaring above.. With all the degeneration of our planet, the weather is beginning to not know what to do next.. I think Mother Nature is running on a wing and a prayer.. Very unpredictable.. I would hate to see what happens when the polar caps melt away.. I read an article about Iceland, and how the ice is melting there…. It is now causing a run off that in the future will raise sea level three inches.. That may not seen to be much, but it will make a big difference.. All this melting has been caused by the sweltering heat in Europe this summer.. I don’t know about you but this is not good for any of us.. I hope some how the planet will revert back to what it was long ago..Β  Well, I’m on my way.. Take care and be safe.. Till Monday.. Be kind to others.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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.. I must let everyone know that I will be away on an adventure for the next ten days.. There fore I will not be posting any banter or stories till the day of Tuesday September 17th..

I’m sure it includes a roaring fire, and the outdoors.. I have plenty of things to do before we leave.. So I will be signing off, and wishing everyone of you a safe weekend and the coming week.. Take care of those you love, and be safe.. Till later… Keep the shiny side up.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Thursday August 29th…

Hello everyone out there in the world:: Today I found myself deciding what I should do today..(Wednesday)Β  The devil one my right shoulder didn’t want to relax and do nothing.. She wanted to go out and paint the fence red.. Not a bad idea.. The angel on my left shoulder was all for relaxing for the day.. She wanted us to drink tea and feast on glazed donuts, and read about princes and fairy tails.. ‘ How boring is that idea.’Β  ‘Every bite of a glazed donut would work it’s way straight to my butt.’ ‘No thanks.’Β  I’m trying to shift a pound or two away from my body.. I thought hard and long… Finally I flicked the angel off my left shoulder, and did what I wanted with the devil riding high on my right shoulder.. I relaxed and did very little for the whole day.. ‘I love days like this.’Β  Well people this lady has got to go and arm wrestle with the devil.. You take care, and be safe on the roads.. Till later… Don’t run from a bear… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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 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 the next part to my story for Wednesday July 24th.

Hello all you wonderful people out there: Tuesday has passed us by and Wednesday is here. Today will be our inspection day for Fire Safety. Clean out the dryer vents each time you do a load of laundry. Clean and vacuum out your bathroom vent on the ceiling. Put a new furnace filter in the furnace. Check all smoke detectors, and the carbon dioxide detector. All batteries are to be replaced with new ones. This is done twice a year. So now you know what is going to happen in this house today. It’s pretty quick, and makes you feel much safer. If you don’t get inspected, just follow the directions I have written and you will feel safer too… Till later… Keep smiling.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next part of my story for Tuesday July 23rd.

Hello everyone. Tuesday is here and the end of the week is now one day closer. I hope your Monday was everything you planned. My Monday was very pleasant. The weather was nice. It was the kind of day a person would like to be outside all day. I had the chance to weed the garden, where my melons are growing. The soil was damp form a small down pour. That made it very easy to pull the weeds. I like the soil to be wet before I even do the weeding. I’m getting older and my balance doesn’t seem to be quite that well. I nearly landed head over heels into the Lilies. I can be such a hazard sometimes… I mean well… I got the weeding done, and the garden looks so much better.. Take care of yourself and others… Till later.. Be safe… πŸ™‚ :0

Hello everyone. I hope Wednesday treated you and families well. I had a pretty good day, even though the day was hot and muggy. I did rain for a bit, which heightened the mugginess. I spent a lot of time inside keeping cool. I did go out and visit my daughter and grand-baby. Parker has grow so much, and is a lot more active then before. He kicks his feet and waves his arms all over the place. His facial expressions are so cute. I miss seeing him. I love the both of them very much..Β  Well this gal has got to get moving…. Till later.. Keep hydrated… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next addition to my story for July 17th.

Hello everyone.. I hope your day was comfortable on Tuesday. We had heat and humidity to deal with, and a couple rain shower. If the heat doesn’t get you then the humidity will. When it’s too hot, we complain. when it’s too cold, we complain. Wow! We humands are fickle little creatures, aren’t we.. The gardens loved the rain that fell yesterday, and that’s a good thing. I wish all of you a wonderful Wednesday. If you are in the heat, don’t forget to drink plenty of water… Till later… Stay cool… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

All Photographs are taken by myself.. Hope you enjoy them… πŸ™‚
