Crud update

A week ago today my wife came down sick, then it was me three greatgrand- kids and my son. He wound up having to go to the hospital having sharp pains in his chest. They kept him over night pumped him full of antibiotics and fluids. His heart checked ok. They feel he pulled a chest muscle heaving so much. I brought him home today but he will not return to work until Monday.

This has been a bad virus! I was still weak from the flu when this thing hit. It took it's tool on me. I still don't feel that good. Weak and short winded. I haven't been to the gem in three weeks. I have started walking Buddy two miles a day weather permitting, not much but better than nothing.

My yard work has been on hold. My son screwed up my lawn mower so grass in front hasn't been cut. I did cut the back with a push mower. Sears will be out today and hopefully get the rider back up and going. Out back I'm down to a about a fifty by fifty foot section to clear and I will be caught up. Course every thing needs cutting now. I can hear the weeds grow! LOL!

We will start finding homes for the kittens next week. Two have been spoken far. I want to keep the two bob tails but may only keep one. I got a few pics of the kittens and the front flower garden...
This is Butch L and Midnight R.

Hope for the Faithful

Mat: 5-6, "I know you are looking for Jesus the crucified, but he is not hear. He has been raised, exactly as he promised."

In general, faith means being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see with your physical (as opposed to spiritual) eyes.

Romans: 24-27, "In hope we were saved. but hope is not hope if its object is seen; how is it possable for one to hope for what he sees? And hoping for what we cannot see means awating it with patient endurance. The Spirit too helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we ought; but the Spirit himself makes intercessions for us with groaning that cannot be expressed in speach. He who searches hearts knows what the Spirit means, for the Spirit intercedes for the saints as God himself wills."

It is my prayer for each of you too have a wonderful week in light of Gods great love for each of you.

Good morning everyone. You are probably wondering what in the whorl is this painting? Well, it's a overhead shot of me falling in the creek Monday playing golf! LOL! Very first hole, I tried to cross the creek carrying my bag and lost my balance. One big splash and man did I get wet! Could have been a bad accident but bruises on back,hip and a cut on my wrist was all the damage done. Course my pride took a beating. I was so embarrassed!

We are having some wonderful weather so I am working in the yard as much as I can. Between Church the lake and here I stay pretty busy this time of the year. This want let up until the growing season is over. I don't mind it keeps me active. No time to get bored. I hope every one has a blessed Good Friday and Easter!

Good mornining everyone I spent most of the day with my best friend having a stress test. He has massive heart problems but so far the doctors have taken care of him. I was with out internet service for a day and a half, They just say we're having tec. problems and working on it. I wonder what they would say if at bill time I tell them I'm having tec. problems but I'm working on it!

As follows a e-mail from a friend well worth shearing, have a great day!

This warning has been on the net before; but, there's been a new addition
about the position of the tongue.

STROKE: Remember the Three Letters Plus the Tongue.


My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word, I agreed. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously . please read:

During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedic) and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the afternoon. Ingrid's husband called later saying that his wife had been taken to the hospital and passed away. She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some stroke victims don't die, they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within three hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke . . . totally. He said the trick was having a stroke recognized, diagnosed and then getting the patient medically cared for within three hours, which is tough.


Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps.

Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK, to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE. (Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue . if the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.

If he or she has trouble with any one of these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to ten people, you can bet at least one life will be saved.

Alisons Birth Day

The twins love birth days, they get presents too!

I would think by now everyone knows Tiger didn't win the Masters! Phil was awesome! I hope everyone has a good Holy Week. Take time to be alone with yourself this week and let our lord speak to your heart.

"What I do away from the puter"

Some of you may remember me doing this last summer and never finished. Quite a job, but they wanted $600.00 to do it with a back hoe!

Clearing out along Boyd creek.

Replanted my flower garden out front.

Needless to say I have been busy! We have the great-grand kids this weekend. It's Alison's Birthday, Big Four! I will post some pics later. Have a good weekend everyone!

Tuesday, April 04, 2006

Today is our Anv. 48 years coming up on the big 50! I have been working out side and playing golf so not much time on the puter. This is golfs holy week, can Tiger do it again? Will Phill Milkerson crumble under the pressure?
Kitty up date, they are starting to explore. Three male, two bobtail!

My grandson at the golf club demo day. The building in the distance is 350 yards, he was geting the ball to the building!

This is my one little dog wood. I found it clearing out back about ten years ago,it was just a sprig.

I hope everyone has a good week! The Masters should be a good match, catch it if you can!

Water Bridge

Even after you see it, it is still hard to believe !

Water Bridge in Germany.... What a feat!

Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters this is engineering!

This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West! Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg, near Berlin. The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

Looks new an innovative but this is really old school. Ohio did this in 1928!

Not much going on, I am back into the outdoor work mode and spend most of my time working out side. Our property is looking pretty good. The rectory at church is looking good and the lake property has never look as well. The new z-turn has made duck soup out of the work there. I still have some tress here and at the lake to take down but hey. I have all summer!

Yesterday may have been my luckiest day ever! I have never found a four leave clover and found one growing on my steps coming up from behind the house. What a find, took sixty-five years to find that bugger!

Have a great Sunday every one. Chad and I are going to Demo day at Bent Brook golf course today. I must remember to leave my credit card home! :-)
