This morning I wanted to sleep late, but my pups had different plans…they were jumping up on the side of my bed by 7:00am…and every little tail was wagging ninety miles an hour!
That only means one thing…
So I got my butt up…
After giving them their morning walk about, I came back in, and by now wide awake, I washed my hands and put some pork chops and some Sonny’s BBQ sauce in the slow cooker. Then I peeled the ‘taters to cook and boiled some eggs and made some potato salad….and deviled eggs.
Afterwards I cleaned my 4 ceiling fans and replaced all the blown bulbs that have been bad for months! lol Then I swept and mopped all the old wooden floors. By 11:00 am, my house was clean and my supper started. (All I would have to do is bake some can biscuits and open a can of pork and beans!)
Danny’s sister has finally gotten a computer! Her feller bought it for her for Christmas! She is so excited. She, like me, when Danny gave me mine, did not even know how to turn it on. I am teaching her what little I know now and feel like a proud parent ‘cause she is learning so fast!!! (It took me nearly 6 months to be brave enough to even try to use my internet! lol)
Today, she wrote her first e-mail … to me ! She was thanking me for helping her learn this complicated machinery that folks of our generation are just now trying to get use to!
One year, when we were in the eighth grade or so, she and I each got a little manual typewriter for Christmas, and we thought we were something….So, don’t you know we think we are something now! lol
Wyatt was running a fever Friday night and moaning, so he had to be taken to the doctor. He has ear infections again. That’s three in about three weeks. The doctor gave him another antibiotic shot and follow up antibiotics and then said he may have to have tubes placed in his ears. Amanda and Kelvin came over tonight, so I saw him again and he was running a fever again. (I gave him some baby Tylenol and it went down.) He is still feeling bad… but he doesn’t cry very much, bless his little heart.
I am sitting here eating “Sugar Babies”… little caramel candies that I love. I am happy that I can afford them! lol When we were little kids back on HORSESHOE BEND, we would ride to town with Daddy when he went to work on Saturdays , and run down to the old dime store and buy a “Sugar Daddy”… a candy sucker made out of caramel…
a.) they were good,
b.) they were cheap and
c.) they would last a long, long time!
Back then children could run up and down Main Street here in our little town..and not worry about being hurt or kidnapped by evil folks…It was a time of innocence for all of us …kids and grownups alike….a glorious time of childhood that few kids today have or even remember.
I can remember playing jackstones on the back porch of the old grocery store my daddy worked at…Me, a little bitty girl…all alone….and nobody bothered me…and I had no fear of anyone bothering me….because that was unheard of here.
On the contrary, folks passing by would go in the store and bring me back an ice cold coca-cola … in the little green glass bottle.
Lord have mercy…..…It was summertime and those were the best tasting drinks on earth to me…They were the real Coca-Cola back then….back when the bottle top had to be popped off with a bottle opener, and the glass bottle had those little beads of water running down the sides of the frosted glass bottle because it was soooo cold! I don’t care what COKE, Pepsi, or any of the others claim, those drinks tasted a heck of a lot better back then…in the glass bottles…Everybody knows it….they’re not fooling anyone.
Oh me.…Here it is after 11:00pm….
Got to come back from the past, so I can get up from here and go to bed…
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
