Top of the 7th the score is tied at 3 everyone is yelling the announcers had said usually when the “away team” got up to bat the crowd would be almost silent – Not so with this game both sides yell at the players, and each other . lol never been to be a Major Pro game – That is one of my far off dreams – I have gone to local pro The Greensboro Grasshoppers are who I rah rah for on the local scene – love the game easy to follow – stand at the plate get a hard ball tossed at your head often times over 100 mph and attempt to hit it – then run like mad to the the base in front of you and hopefully all the way around to the point where you started- while the other guys attempts to throw the ball in such a manner as hitting the glove of one of the guys standing on base to get the runner out – EASY Right ? lol Just glad I am one of the fans sitting in the stands all be it from my living room – 😉 Counting down the days till the World Series starts and then the final count for when the boys of Summer from the final two teams hang up there bats for another season – As the wheel turns so Autumn comes-the temps are not any cooler now but that too will come – The countdown to school has started for me it means nothing more than a reminder of a change of season .
But on this date in 1977 One of the greats left us Elvis Presley He died at the age of 42 I have managed to out live him by a few years decades even – what was I up to that day ? hmmm headed back to Florida from Reidsville N.C. My father had been on deployment with the Navy at that time – so we mom my sister and i traveled alone with a family friend to N.C. my mothers dad met us out there and took us to his house in Wva. pretty much uneventful except for my dad not being there – then rock’s King leaving us – <sigh> heard Elvis music on the radio – Sue (my mom’s friend ) had a migraine so the music had to be stopped – I had no idea what a migraine even was at that point – funny I get them infrequently now that I am an adult. I saw Jailhouse Rock on the Turner Classic Movie channel today – I had never seen the whole movie – As much as I watch the old stuff seems like I would have seen it at some point oh well it was pretty good.

Spicy was the name of my cat – She was a beautiful calico; found in a shelter my mother in law fell in love – (she never thought she would love another cat ) I knew she would 😉 When my mother in law got to ill to care for the spicy cat she became mine – She would share the sofa- along with my black Labrador- Dakota Moon – Any warm lap was fine with her; We miss Spicy a lot my heart feels empty without her – without a cat in the house it just doesn’t feel quite like home I hope to solve that before the end of the Winter Holidays – For my Spicy was a pure purr-able delight.
We all remember ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ as one of the creepiest parts of our childhood. No matter how tough you think you are, there’s at least one story from the books that’s stuck with you. My personal favorite is ‘Harold’. Unfortunately, after the original printings between 1981-1991 the books became rare.…

58 days till Autumn and the heat just won’t quit – the temps have been consistently over 90 for most of the summer getting so tired of it so ready for the cooler temps – planted a garden this year it was pretty much a bust from the get go — had to plant stuff late due to the cold weather , then planted less then we got plenty of rain and too high temps and we had night time visitors that took most of it, not a good year for me I Can’t handle high temps I just can’t =—- so like I stated I have the count down for autumn going already – the season in spite of the heat has had some good things happen in it – there are 3 humming birds at my feeder now and I got 2 bird baths set up in the yard one in each yard – so that is good now if the birds would just get in it — lol – the dog was in the fenced in side yard watching me the whole time I was setting it up – then we came in – she laid out on the bed in the spare room and barked at the cherub shaking my head at her — so i took her out to where it was and walked her around it she ignored it — brought her back in and then in the dark of the night she growling again — sigh — oh well — waiting for the temps to go down some so i can get the fire pit going again — maybe before august is completely gone we will get close to the 60’s at least get a break from the humid-ness I have a new bike i can’t ride it due to the weather — come on autumn I can’t wait .
Winter is over and Spring is here for the year 2016, been almost defeated by allergies and sinus infections, the past couple of months , We did not get enough cold temps or snow to help cur-tell the bugs and weeds that have stated up way too early – oh well , I have been busy reading books making stews bread, soups got real good at making Challah bread over the winter, got to be a staple on my table with the soups and roasted chicken on Friday nights – Never knew it was so simple wish I had known years ago my mother in law would have been so proud of me for it – I hope where ever she is she is smiling due to my efforts of cooking – 😉 The 4 footed beasty I lovingly call baby girl (my Dakota moon ) has decided the the temps have warmed enough for her to be out more and liking it – specially at night – compared to the 20s of the winter – Ahh the spring, and summer what a glorious time, It won’t be much longer it will be warm enough for me and clear enough pollen wise for me to be out and on my much loved deck, can’t wait to eat breakfast out there and enjoy the weekend paper – It will happen I know it. Pitchers of water with lemon slices, and fresh orange floating in it, fresh ice – things I enjoy more walks, digging in dirt, planting pretties and food, Yes these are things I enjoy.
been a long winter for me — i have been ill since the fall — Due to circumstances beyond my control I have been unable to get to the Docs ==== one was insurance — got that solved — then there was the weather—- got that solved just by the turning of the wheel then i fell and hurt my wrist and was warped up for a while then sore for a long while — still a little stingy with it when i move it just so so it still hurts – I have been reading allot did get the garden started so that is good — then had to cover EVERYTHING UP cause of a hard freeze last night — got my Y membership updated just need to get out there lol my daffodils are up the pollen is flying and my eyes burn and i feel tired all the time because of it – So glad i can see my allergist tomorrow yippee
Still in the planning stages of what to do in the garden — but i am still working on it 🙂 we are still early – so it is ok
