Blue On Blue

29854234254_80bc8fd8fc_b

It’s been so long since I’ve written a proper blog, I guess y’all thought I’d fallen off the face of the earth.  🙂 Nope, just fell into a mild blue “funk”. Probably seasonal, even though Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.

Hurricane Michael missed us almost completely, so, all is cool there. Could have something to do with the fact a fellow FAITH Rider who ended his life and that left me feeling out of sorts, which is odd, because he wasn’t a popular fellow. I wish he had opened up to someone and sought help before taking such a final solution. There will be a ride for his widow this month to raise money for her expenses. She was left with some hefty debts because of his selfishness (there, I said it). What a coward he was! Leaving her with all those problems that he created. Well, that’s my two cents. Time to move on.

I think we’re gonna have more than just the Hubby and me here for Thanksgiving this year. My dearest friends, Vicki and Lewis, and the Mother-In-Law may be here for the festivities. How nice! Speaking of which ….

Surprisingly, my Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law are still in the land of the living. She has a ‘bladder fistula’, resides in the local nursing home and we travel back-and-to frequently to check on her. He has advanced COPD, heart failure, and other not-so-nice symptoms from years of smoking and drinking and is crashing at his daughters place in South Florida. (Thank the good LORD it’s nowhere near us. He’s not a pleasant person.) They’re both so ill, it’s truly amazing that they haven’t succumbed to their separate illnesses. You know me, I’m not going to wish anyone dead and even though neither of them is what I’d call a Warm Fuzzy, it’s sad to watch them suffer so much. May the LORD bless and keep them.

heart monitor 04 NOV 2018 small

My sweet husband has suddenly been suffering from nightly heart palpation’s, sweating, restlessness, and so forth. Back and forth to the doctor he’s gone with little help. However, he finally found a heart specialist and wore a heart monitor all weekend. He is returning the device as we speak. He will know the results in December, unless it’s something ‘life threatening’. Geez, that’s good to know, I retorted. Medicine is totally messed up since Obamacare invaded our Country.

evil-good

Speaking of invasions, I know all reading this have been watching the invading army heading North towards American southern borders? Our Church and many here are praying for a peaceful solution, especially for our military. Those flooding this way are being paid to be suckers for evil purposes and many may end up dead. I don’t want illegals in my Country but I also don’t care to see all those uneducated saps killed because of the evil men and women paying them to be cannon fodder because they’re too cowardly to do it themselves. The devil is truly at work in the hearts of the Left isn’t he folks?! They are truly lost. Thankfully, Jesus Christ has dominion over all. May His peace and wisdom reign forever. All victory is His.

Red Sky In Morning, Sailor Take Warning

20181009_1

Even though we are 50 miles from the east coast, and many more from the Gulf to the south, our skies are already giving us a warning: there’s a storm on the horizon. We’re making preempt plans for the heavy winds, copious rain fall and power outages that are sure to follow. Praying for those in the direct path of Hurricane Michael. Please stay safe.

For those who are suffering from storms in your personals lives, you have my prayers too. You’re not alone. God loves you. Never forget that.

The New Toy

French racing blue is one of my favorite colors. I wish I had a motorcycle in that shade of blue, but since I can’t afford something that extravagant and, since I actually needed a ‘work horse’ of sorts, this is the compromise I came up with.

golf cart OCT 2018

It’s a 2013 Yamaha Golf Cart. Steve worked out, what I feel, is a really good deal on it from one of our local merchants. God is good, as it also has a limited warranty, which is unusual for something used. It also was sold with the windshield, roof, lift kit, large tires, etc. All these items are extras at most dealerships. Plus, I know that these folks have checked it over carefully for any foreseeable problems and I can yell at them if they didn’t do their job. giggle (Just kidding. Wouldn’t do that.) Steve and I have spent ages pricing used and new this and used and new that. Nothing looked like a bargain. And even the used whatever would be pricey with no warranty or extras! I had to be sure that what we bought wouldn’t be more work for Steve, you know. It has to be reliable. After months of prayer and searching, God showed me this little number. I still pray I haven’t been foolish and thank Him for His guidance.

This morning I was able to put ‘Ol Blue through it’s paces. My goodness it’s hot and humid too because of Tropical Storm Michael heading this way. Sure hope the storm brings rain. We need it. So far, I can safely say ‘Ol Blue has passed with flying colors. I’ve picked up cut and fallen limbs from around the acreage. Then, I pulled up all those weeds and old flowers from the flower bed. Loaded up ‘Ol Blue to the hilt too, then put the yard dregs alongside the gun range. It mulches the area while providing cover for any little critters, especially rabbits, that may need a home this winter. Just doing my part. Doesn’t hurt that they’re tasty too. lol

Oh, and I’m asking for prayers please, dear Saints. Steve is suddenly suffering from heart palpitations, night sweats, and other symptoms. He’s gone to the regular doctor and there’s a stress test scheduled for this Friday (the 12th). Then, of course, there will be followups and lord only knows what else. Please pray for good results, the doctors to be guided and for me to have the courage to carry on no matter the outcome in Christ’s name. Thanks heaps. Y’all mean more to me than words can express.

So that’s the new “toy”. I hope everyone’s day is restful, blessed, and full of love.

Happy Columbus Day

I have no desire to offend, but it’s so silly how all government offices are closed today for Columbus Day. But since they’re so ingrained in the system, I guess all these made up holidays will never go away. They’re yet another annoyance created by the government in our daily lives like Daylight Savings Time or taxes. Oh well. Ok, I’ll tuck my curmudgeon attitude in the drawer and will have a little fun with it. Here’s Bugs Bunny taking a poke at the holiday. I’ve got yard work to do anyway and will be using my new “toy” to assist in the Fall clean up. I haven’t shared that news about the toy yet, have I? 🙂 Oh, yeah, I didn’t. Well I’ll give y’all a hint: it’s bright blue and it has tuning forks as a symbol on the front. [Such a tease, I know.] The new toy will be my next post.
