Tuesday 4: Future Ahead

Welcome to Tuesday 4 in memory of Toni Taddeo.

This week we have some questions from Pamela Steiner once again.

I hope you enjoy them.

1.  Let’s pretend that it is 50 years into the future, and explorers have just discovered your house, “frozen in time” exactly as it is today. Everything is preserved, even the food, but of course no one has lived there for fifty years.  What do you think would be their first reaction as they walk in the door of your house? Their first reaction might be, “Gee, they sure liked dogs and books!” πŸ•πŸ• And when they check the freezer and shelves, they’ll notice there is no sugar or carbo anything. πŸ˜‹ The food is all keto. If it’s all still edible, they’ll eat really good for quite awhile.
 
2.  What would the things left in your house tell the explorers about you? That I had a penchant for anything British, enjoyed old Country & Classical music, didn’t like clutter, that I believed in Jesus Christ our Lord ❀️‍πŸ”₯, was an avid reader of history novels and just as dull as a dish rag. 😁 I can live with that. ✨
 
3.  What kinds of books would they discover on your bookshelves or beside your chair/bed? ✝️ God’s Holy Word ✝️, Tudor history, and Search-A-Word puzzles. I turn off the computer a lot in the evenings these days. I like to go old school with a puzzle book while watching one of my favorite British spy or drama DVD’s or YouTube. Or sometimes I watch historical or nature video’s. In my opinion, modern American TV is simply awful. Modern programming and “news” is based on fear mongering and are mind numbingly ignorant of facts which makes it down-right insulting. πŸ“Ί The devil is openly on the prowl looking for those he can devour. There sure seem to be a lot of willing participants. I’d rather watch something that edifies. I have a hard enough time walking the straight and narrow as it ’tis.
 
4.  What things would they discover in your closets or cabinets that would make them wonder why on earth you were saving it? Old clothes that no longer fit properly since I lost weight. I look like I’m wearing a tent they’re so lose. πŸ˜‰ But I like them! Modern fashions are mostly unappealing, in my view. There’s just no sense of decorum. Anyway, I keep thinking, well, maybe I’ll get these old clothes altered, but then don’t. I hate spending money πŸ’Έ unless it’s food, books, guns or motorcycles.

Thanks Pamela for more great questions! And thank you dear reader for your time. Have a blessed day!

** UPDATE ON MY HUSBAND’S SISTER ** Even though she has Phase 3 or 4 Ovarian Cancer, is in incredible pain, popping opioid pills like an addict and is only 55 years old, she is being deliberately stubborn and refusing treatment. Guess it’s only a short matter of time before she passes into Glory. She never will admit that she’s wrong about anything or seek help. Besides, I think she enjoys jerkin’ people around. My opinion is she loves the extra spoiling and attention she gets when feigning sickness (real or imagined). Probably stems from the horrible abuse she suffered at the hands of that evil step-mother and her father. The mental illness is too severe to hope for her to have a normal life. Her mind and personality is completely warped. So, we’re through caring, not that we don’t “care”, ’cause we both do, but at some point when dealing with the mentally disturbed one must learn to release that someone to a debased mind so one doesn’t lose their own sanity! Anyway, thank you everyone for your prayers and kind thoughts. We’re leaving these concerns with God our Father. Everyone’s got their sack of rocks to carry. This is ours. And only He can fix what’s wrong with all of us. ❀

  1. I’m with you on the dogs and color. Pretty much on what’s on TV. Not so much with all the British stuff, but eh, we each have our own thing. Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. You have to wonder why people are so stubborn when it could save their life. Praying for you all.

  2. Yeay, I finally found where to comment! (Duh, hiding in plain sight.) I totally agree with what you said about modern American TV and (what passes for) fashion. Your memes are cracking me up.

  3. I enjoyed your answers, Pam! I chuckled at your clothing comment because (big as I still am) I have lost 50 pounds and most of my slacks don’t stay up without a belt. I just purchased pre-made belt loops to sew onto a few pairs of slacks so I can wear a belt with them. That’s my fix… LOL. By the way, I think you are anything but dull, my friend! xo

  4. It’s interesting to think what someone would learn about us from our home. How wonderful that someone can see something of our faith by what we surround ourselves with.
    I’m so sorry about Steve’s sister. It’s so sad because she’s certainly hurting herself, but it affects all of you. Praying for you all!
