Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter 1 Reply

So it begins. Started snowing yesterday afternoon, with temps in the 20's, though it was sunny and 70 on Saturday, and still snowing. Should be about 3" when it stops around noon. I did take the precaution of putting the snow pusher and snow shovel…Continue

Nights in the 30's, but no hard freeze yet. Painted the porch...will not procrastinate again so I won't have to pressure wash and scrape before painting. Washed windows, washed and waxed the car, got my flu and covid shots (no reactions). Leaves are…Continue

Good riddance to Summer... 5 Replies

Too hot, too dry, too smoky, but no fires within 30 miles. Garden a bust. But...no wasps, hornets or yellow jackets. Guess there's an upside to anything. Hope yours was better.Continue

This section should come after the comment below.
Life is a task that we do ourselves every day.
When you look... it's already six in the afternoon; when you look... it's already Friday; when one looks... the month is over; when one looks... the year is over; when one looks... 50, 60, 70, and 80 years have passed!
When you look... we no longer know where our friends are.
When you look... we lost the love of our life and now, it's too late to go back.
Do not stop doing something you like due to lack of time.  Do not stop having someone by your side, because your children will soon not be yours, and you will have to do something with that remaining time, where the only thing that we are going to miss will be the space that can only be enjoyed with the usual friends.  This time that, unfortunately, never returns...
The day is today!
Hopefully, you have time to read and then share this message... or else leave it for *Later* and you will see that you will never share it!
Always together
Always united
Always brothers/sisters
Always friends

We grew up in the 40s-50s-60.
We studied in the 50s-60s-70s.
We dated in the 50s-60s-70s.
We got married and discovered the world in the 60s-70s-80s.
We ventured into the 70s-80s.
We stabilized in the 90s.
We got wiser in the 2000s.
And went firmly through the 2010s.
Turns out we've lived through NINE different decades...
TWO different centuries...
TWO different millennia...
We have gone from the telephone with an operator for long-distance calls to video calls to anywhere in the world; we have gone from slides to YouTube, from vinyl records to online music, and from handwritten letters to email and WhatsApp...
From live matches on the radio to black and white TV, and then to HDTV...
We went to Blockbuster and now we watch Netflix...
We got to know the first computers, punch cards, diskettes and now we have gigabytes and megabytes in hand on our cell phones or iPads...
We wore shorts throughout our childhood and then long pants, oxfords, Bermuda shorts, etc.
We dodged infantile paralysis, meningitis, H1N1 flu, and now COVID-19...
We rode skates, tricycles, invented cars, bicycles, mopeds, gasoline or diesel cars and now we ride hybrids or 100% electric...
Yes, we've been through a lot but what a great life we've had!
They could describe us as "exennials" people who were born in that world of the fifties, who had an analog childhood and digital adulthood.
We're kind of Ya-seen-it-all.
Our generation has literally lived through and witnessed more than any other in every dimension of life.
It is our generation that has literally adapted to "CHANGE".
A big round of applause to all the members of a very special generation, which are UNIQUE.  Here's a precious and very true message that I received from a friend:

Julie Andrews Turning 79 - this is hysterical!
To commemorate her birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used:
(Sing It!) - If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!
Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.
When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.
Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.
When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
And then I don't feel so bad.
>>>>>>>>>>>>> > >>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>
(Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd
that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores. Please
share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and humor with others who
would appreciate it.)
