My Old Friend~Tim McGraw Lyrics

Dustin' off....Memories.

I've spent a little time today...
dustin' off...
'Memories'.
I was just cleanin'...didn't plan...on visiting, so Many...
'Old Friends'.
<3
What a Gift, 'Cleaning'...can be. : )
{who knew???: ) }
Finally, can See...The Top, of The Old....Harvest Table.
{Only me, Harold, and...Ed, could Love.}
This...Old, Old....Table, has a Long Story, that I've written about numerous times.
<3 <3 <3 
John, worked His Magic, and...it wound up...as our Dining Table.
Priceless.
<3
<3
<3
This...'Love of Old'...is Such a Gift.
: )
As I Clean...
I'm Surrounded by Old Friends.
<3 
'Memories'.
Priceless...Memories.
: )
{Ya can't Get That, from Target, Walmart...or...Pottery Barn. : ( }
FINALLY...found the Lamp Hook, my dear Pal, Mark...gave me, so long ago.
: )
I've looked for it, High and Low.
Today...I found it, tucked inside the little cupboard, John's Tobacco Memorabilia is displayed.
: )
<3 

It's so Beautiful.
The Detail, in 'Old', is...amazing. : )
Picked up this wonderful...old, Box....a while back.
{It's been sitting on The Harvest Table, along with Much 'Other'...
{paperwork} for a long time.: ( }
Pal, Kevin...showed it to me, and...I had to have it.
: )
The secret...'ring box', in the top...
sold me.
: )
<3
: )
It holds my Stogies...now.
<3
Peanut...
Helping me dust, today.
: )
{After, she Shredded...her last...Toy. : ( }
oh my.
: )
These times...are difficult, but....
there are Many Blessings, too.
<3
Stay Well.
Listen to the Experts.
<3
Pray, for All...who are Suffering, today.
There are many.
Love, to You.

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Lookin' Out My Back Door (Official Video)

Do...Doo...Doo... Lookin' Out my Backdoor.

It was Such a Beautiful Evening,
Peanut, and...me, sat outside...
Lookin' out the back door.
❤️
As Ugly...as the view is, these days, The Birds, have Never been Happier!
They are Singing like I've never heard them, before. ❤️❤️❤️
What a Beautiful 'Gift'. 
Tomorrow, is going to be a Busy, Busy....Day. 
Getting Loads of Work done, around here.
As I sat, listening to the Birds, I thought of the CCR tune, 'Lookin' Out my Backdoor'.
😁
With the Horrible Carnage, {Unnecessary Carnage} and the Crazy Statuary, the Gnarly Equipment...Strewn, about...
I, thought to myself... 
This...is Truly, like Fallin' Down a Rabbit Hole. 😉
Oh my. 
I reposted a quote, from a couple of years ago on FB, today. 
It puts it all into perspective. 
" A strong woman knows she has strength enough for the 'Journey', but a woman of strength knows it is in the 'Journey' where she will become strong."
{ Men, too. }
I, personally believe...
We are all here, at this Time, and Place...to Learn, and Grow. 
Make a difference, contribute...in our own special ways...God has Suited us for. 
❤️
One Day...at a Time. 
One, moment...at a Time.
'For Everything, there is a Season'.
Like the Song goes...
'Bother me, tomorrow... Today, I'll buy no sorrow.' 
Love, to You.
Stay Well. 
Barb C.
😉
{As I was sittin' by the back door, lookin' over this...Carnage, I thought....to myself, 'CCR, had to Smoke Weed, to Envision...what I'm...lookin' at, Sober!'....Hahahaha!! {Thanks, Fairfax, and IDOT. }

Martina McBride - Blessed

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

oh....my.

What a Day!!!
oh my.
Fairfax, City Council, had a 'Special Meeting', over the phone...tonight.
I, got in...somehow, many...didn't.
{and...Boy, are They...'not happy'. {Eeeek. : ) }
I've Pushed, for nearly 18 Months, for a Live Feed, at these 'meetings'.
"No, No...No." said the Mayor, and Council.
They voted on a 4 Million Dollar Water Tower, tonight...
that...should've been benched, when there couldn't be a real..'public'...meeting.
{I, requested that they postpone, this afternoon. They didn't. }
It Passed.
: (
oh my.
That 4 Million Dollars, might be needed elsewhere, very soon.
The Mayor, and Council...seemed to worry more, and...spent more time considering...
about How to address those who can't pay their water bills, this month.
And...
How to handle...shutting them Off.
: (
{yeah...I, don't expect you to believe me...
That's Why, I've Begged, at Many, Many...Open Council Meetings, 
for a 'Live Feed', 
so You All...can See, and Decide, for yourselves. ; ) }

I, wonder...sometimes, why...do I even care, when..it seems, nobody else does.
Guess..the answer is, 
the answer...
that...always..seems to Slap me in The Face...
Because, 
it's
 'The Right Thing...to Do.'
Indeed, it is.
It's Painful...to watch, as it unfolds.
: (
oh...my.
: (
We Must...pay attention.
Keep Ourselves, Informed.
Listen...to The Experts.
Not...Politicians, or Anyone, 
who 'profits', from a 'Critical Condition'.
We must...
Use...The Common Sense, God Blessed Us With.
<3
Yeah, now...I'm talkin' about COVID 19, or...
as one of the Council members referred to it, tonight...as, the
'Jung Flu'. 
: ( : ( : (
'oh my'. 
yeah...
: )
I, Struggle with 'respect', 
as I sit...
and listen, during the Fairfax, Iowa, City Council Meetings.
: (
oh my.
The bottom line.
It's 'All', in God's Hands.
: )
He'll Suit Us Up...with Armor, to Fight These Battles, if...we Trust, in Him.
: )
Which, I...do.
<3

Hope You...do, too.
<3
Battles aren't easily Won.
but...
if we have 
Faith, 
We'll Never...
Fight Them,
 Alone.
<3 <3 <3 
Love...To You.
<3 <3 <3

<3 <3 <3
Priceless.
