Theme Thursday for July 31, 2014 - COLLECTIONS


This weeks new theme is COLLECTIONS!

Do you like to collect things?
Do you collect a lot of items in each collection?
Or are you happy with just a few items?

Do you remember those Beanie Babies?
I think people are still collecting them.
Hot Wheels, Barbie Dolls, Stamps, Coins, Crayons, 
I guess the list could go on and on.
We seem to have collectors for just about everything out there.

My hubby seems to collect wine and tools, along with some coins,
not much else.
I collect gadgets, mostly kitchen gadgets, cookbooks, other books, 
used to collect videos, and DVD's but I gave up.

Some of you may know what that gadget in the picture is
and some of you may not.
Try to guess then leave your guess in the comments. 
I like this gadget.

Please come back on Thursday and let us know about your collections
or the collections of people you know, 
and maybe not know.

Should be interesting to see what others find to collect.

See you Thursday!
Thanks again,

Here is Mr. Linky, I wonder what he collects!

Theme Thursday for July 24, 2014 - Life's Moments

Life's Moments

This weeks new theme is Life's Moments!

I guess one could say that our life is just one moment in time,
and sometimes it is gone in a flash and other times it lingers on.

Right now I am still hoping mine will linger for many more years.
I am not sure but am hoping all these meds are working
and I guess only time will tell.
Plus I am actually staying awake a little longer so I am now having
more of those life's moments, yea!!

So how about you, do you have any great stories, poems, pictures,
or anything about some of your life's moments that you would like to share.
We would love to see what you come up with.

Life is wonderful!!!
And you are all wonderful for sharing it here.

So please come back on Thursday
to share some of those moments.

See you then,
thanks again,

Mr. Linky has some Life's Moments stories to share.

Theme Thursday for July 17, 2014 - BLISSFUL


This weeks new theme is BLISSFUL!

What can I say, they were having a blissful moment together.
Big brother loving his baby sister.
Those were the good old days.
Now that they are older they sometimes have their
not so blissful moments.
She has turned into a bossy little missy and he won't listen to her.
But they still have many blissful moments like this.

How about you, do you have a lot of blissful moments
do you have a lot of not so blissful moments?

Life is funny in that I think we can choose to have lots of moments 
filled with bliss or we can have moments with little bliss.

I hope you choose to have as many moments of bliss that you can
hopefully you will share some of those moments with us.

Please come back on Thursday
and share them.

See you Thursday!
Thanks again,

Here is Mr. Linky who is always blissful!!!

Theme Thursday for July 10, 2014 - ODD


This weeks new theme is ODD!

There are so many odd things in the world,
but I think mankind is the oddest of all.

Still so many questions about us that cannot be answered.
And the odd thing is that most of them may never be answered.

So what about you,
what do you find is odd?

Are you odd?
Are we odd?
Do you notice the odd things around you each day?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know about the odd things you have discovered.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky, oddly is early.

Theme Thursday for July 3, 2014 - PARADES


This weeks new theme is PARADES!

Do you like to go to Parades?
Have you been to a Parade?
Have you been in a Parade?

This Friday there will be thousands of Parades here in the U.S
We will be celebrating our Independence Day,
one of our most important Holidays.
Happy 4th of July to all who celebrate!!!!

But there are going to be other Parades in certain parts of the world,
and these parades will not be happy ones.
When being paraded to your death,
that is not a happy one.
My prayers are with those in Iraq and Syria
being paraded around by the terrorists.

But what I am really worried about is that the 
flesh eating Zombies are growing in numbers
and parading around looking for food.

If you happen to see any can you please try and
point them in the direction of the terrorists.

So please come back on Thursday and let us know about your Parades.

Thanks again,

Early Mr. Linky man again!!!

Not sure what happened to the Mr. Linky thingy,
it is only supposed to do that if I add a new one.

Yup, shocked you all with this short worded post....

Theme Thursday for June 19, 2014 - BEACHES


This weeks new theme is BEACHES!

What a view you can get from beaches!
Either an amazing sunrise or a sunset, 
depending on the direction the beach faces.

Ocean beaches, lake beaches, river beaches,
we are so lucky to have beaches.
There might even be other kinds of beaches,
but I am not sure if ponds and creeks have beaches.

Here in California we have many ocean beaches.
I have gone to them since I was a child,
but after the movie JAWS came out,
I pretty much have stayed away other than to walk on the sand,
or go on a cruise.
Swimming pools are just fine for me.

But you just cannot get that fantastic view anywhere else.

How about you, 
Do you like to go to a beach?
Do you swim in the ocean?
What is your favorite beach to visit?
Do you surf, make sand castles?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know about 
your beach experiences or lack of beach experiences.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky is an early bird again.

Theme Thursday for June 12, 2014 - LONELY


This weeks new theme is LONELY!

I am not sure how being alone is different than being lonely but it is.
I like being alone but not feeling lonely.
For the past few months I have been feeling lonely.
Here is why:

I had some tests taken because I have been sick for quite a while.
At first my Doctor thought it was my thyroid and so he wanted me to take some tests,
just to check and make sure that was all it was.

I get a call from him a few days later that I need to come see him as soon as possible.
Okay, that does not sound good.
I go in a few days later to see him.
We are in the room and he looks at my chart and then he looks at me
and tells me that I am dying.  
That all my tests are off the charts
and that all my vital organs are going to quit working in two to three months.
All I could say was, "Oh".
What does one say when you are told that you are going to die in a few months.
I finally was able to ask what was wrong.
He said my heart has weakened due to all the mini strokes I have been having
for the past 15 years.
At least I think that is what he said is the cause of it.
I cannot remember much of the conversation because your brain
just keeps repeating the part about I'm dying.
Then he says, "But I am going to do my best to save you."
I'm thinking then why did you tell me I am dying.
Anyway he gives me a big list of new meds that I have to take.
I now have a basket full of meds.
I gag because I have to take so many.

But back to feeling lonely.
I feel lonely because I could not talk to anyone about this.
I tried to talk to oldest granddaughter and grandson but they started to freak out,
and so I just said I was just kidding.
Then I knew that anyone I told about this would freak out too.
This is why I feel lonely, I have no one to talk to about this.
And I also realize that if my Doc does save me then anyone I told
would have gotten upset for no reason.

Truly feeling lonely does not feel good.
Being alone is just fine.

So how about you!
Do you ever feel lonely?
Are you okay if you are alone?
If you know someone who feels lonely, do you try to help them?
What do you think about lonely?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know your feelings about lonely.

See you Thursday,
Thanks again,

Hey Mr. Linky is early again!

Theme Thursday for June 5, 2014 - LOVING


This weeks new theme is LOVING!

Just think how much better this world would be if everyone spent more time loving
each other instead of hating.

I think that the babies of almost every animal is loved by everyone,
but when it grows up that is when things change.

And the babies seem to love everyone too.
So I think that not loving someone is taught to babies as they grow older.

How about you, are you a loving person?
Do you love babies of all kinds?
Do you love people of all kinds?
Do you love yourself?
Do you love food of all kinds?
What about desserts and chocolate?

I could just make a long list of things to love but I would rather see what you love,
and how easy it is to be loving everything.

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know what loving means to you.

See you Thursday,
Thanks again,

Mr. Linky will be up before or on Thursday.

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may know, I have been sick for a while
and struggling with handling each weeks Theme, 
let alone leaving comments after I visit.
I would like to ask all of you if any of you would like
to be a co-host for TT for the next two or three months.
And after that, when I am able to come back,
if you like it then we can co-host together.
I am facing some major medical issues that I need to 
concentrate on to save my life, so any help
would be greatly appreciated.
Please leave a comment and I will contact you.
God bless!

Theme Thursday for May 29, 2014 - HAIR


This weeks new theme is HAIR!

One can be born bald or one can be born with a full head of hair,
but most of us are born with hair somewhere in the middle.

Our hair can be long, short, curly, straight, brown, blond, red, black,
and the combinations are endless.

We can spend hours working on our hair, or just a few minutes.

We cut our hair, we let it grow out, some even shave it off.

I guess you could say that we take our hair for granted.
That is until we start to lose it.

It can happen at any age and for many different reasons.
Luckily we have many options to try and grow it back.
Some work and some don't, for the ones that don't, 
well lets just say that the ones that don't work go out of business pretty fast.

So what do you think about "hair"?
What length of hair do you like?
What color is your favorite?
What style is your favorite?
Do you think hair is romantic?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know what you think about HAIR!

See you on Thursday!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky must be liking all of you, he's early again.

Theme Thursday for May 22, 2014 - PAPER


This weeks new theme is PAPER!

I was thinking (sometimes I do actually think) about how often 
we are asked if we want to go paperless.
Even my bank asks me if I want to have them email me my receipts.

Think about it:
we rarely write anyone a letter,
we just email them,
we rarely send cards,
we email them cards,
we bank online
and get e-bills,
we rarely write notes,
we just enter them into our smartphones,
we rarely print pictures,
we use electronic picture frames.

Do you know that the Post Office uses lots of trees,
it is in all the junk mail we receive in our mailboxes.
And I am so tired of the junk mail.
I can barely stand to look at it.

I think that in the near future that we will pretty
much be a paperless world.

What about you, do you use that much paper anymore?
Do you think it is a good idea to go paperless?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know how much
You use paper.

See you on Thursday!

Thanks again,

That early Mr.Linky just snuck up on me again!!

Theme Thursday for May 15, 2014 - SKIN


This weeks new theme is SKIN!

Lately when I watch the news I hear so much about racism
and people who do not seem to like the skin color of another person,
or group of people.

Or that one group opresses another group because of the color of their skin,
religious beliefs, their gender, or their sexual orientation to name a few.

All of this saddens my heart because I think a very wise man once said,
"Let them judge each other by their character and not the color of their skin".
He said something along those lines.
If anyone wants to write the exact words, please put them in the comments section.

Anyway these words are important to me.
I mean just look at my skin color,
and well the scar from when I almost lost my thumb.
I am pink.
I am a pink person!!!!
I am a red person!!!
I am a yellow person!!!
I am a brown person!!!
I am a multicolored person!!!!!
Oh yeah, I am also a white person!!!!

I am a mixed up colored person!!!
And proud of it.

My ancestors came from all over the planet!
They married people who came from places that were far
from where they were born.
Maybe they were ostracized from the different societies for 
being a mixed race couple.
I do as a matter of fact know that all of them were treated different.
I have been treated different because of where my ancestors came from.

I will not go into the stories but I can say that when my family gets together,
we have family members who are very dark skinned all the way up to others who 
are light skinned, which now includes me.
Once I got skin cancer and was told to stay out of the sun,
my skin has gotten lighter each year.
Doc says it is that bit of white skinned relatives coming out.
But I was one of the lighter skinned ones anyway, just not this pink color.

Anyway my point is that we all love each other regardless of the color of our skin,
or where that ancestor came from.
Sadly all of the older generations above me have passed away.
And happily our decendants have carried on the tradition
of marrying someone for their character instead of their skin color.

We are a growing, loving family of beautiful skin colors.
Did I say there is a bun in the oven, due in August!
Another grand baby for me and hubby.
Knowing who we are inside is so much more important than 
how we look on the outside.
We just wish that the rest of the world could do the same.
Peel off your skin and I think we basically look the same.

So how about you, how do you feel when you see someone who
has a different color of skin than you do?

And do you feel that judging someone by their skin color
is something that is taught by some terrible people?

Is one's character more important than one's skin color?

Do you belong to the Human Race or a different race?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know how you feel about skin!

See you Thursday,
Thanks again,

Mr. Linky said it's just too early for him to come out,
but he said to look for him before Thursday.
Here is is:

PS....was not trying to be preachy, just wanted to show how I see skin on other's.

Theme Thursday for May 8, 2014 - PURPLE


This weeks new theme is PURPLE!

I love purple!
Is there really a purple people eater?
Is Barney really purple too?
Where did all the purple flowers go?

Purple, purple, purple,
Gurple, gurple, gurple.
Me wants some purple gurple,
So I can go burple, burple, burple.

Sometimes when I drive down this one street I see two houses that
have these beautiful purple flowers as their ground cover.
They make me want to stop and just look at them,
and to ask what kind of flower they are.
They are the dark purple color as in the picture above.
And on one of our main streets there is this area
that the trees flower these lighter color purple flowers.
It is a beautiful sight to see all these trees lined up in purple
on both sides of the streets.
But then fairly soon after the street turns purple when the leaves have fallen.

So how about you,
how do you feel about the color purple?
How much purple is in your life?
Look around and notice the purple,
then come back on Thursday and let us know about it.

See you Thursday!!

Thanks again,

Dang it, here is that early Mr. Linky thing again.
I think he likes all of you.

Theme Thursday for May 1, 2014 - WINDS


This weeks new theme is WINDS!

Sorry I could not post this earlier but we had no internet or even electricity most of today.
Instead we have had those dang Santa Ana Winds.
I am sure most of you have seen stories about them in the news.
Trust me they are all true.
I live just below the Cajon Pass,
And they have been blowing like crazy for the past few days.

Winds are a very strong force of nature and can be very destructive.
Every year that we have lived here they have blown down
sections of our fence.
They have blown away everything not tied down.
They have blown off our cement tiles on our roof.
They have blown a tree that fell onto one of my cars.
You try to drive your car and you barely move forward 
or you have a hard time not being blown sideways, very scary.
The winds howl so loud that it sounds like a freight train is blowing through your house.

They are still howling now, but at a lower level and when the electrictiy has been off,
well lets just say it feels as if you are in a horror movie.
Scared the wee wittle ones most of today.

I really feel so sorry for those going through the tornadoes right now.
Have seen a few and been through one, I definitely know how scary they are.
But at least they go away after a few hours.
The Santa Ana's do not.
They can last for days.
And weeks.

So how about you, how do the winds blow where you live?
Have you ever been through a terrible storm caused by the winds?

Please come back on Thursday
tell us some of your stories about the winds.

Thanks again,

Definitely putting Mr. Linky up while I have a chance.

Theme Thursday for April 24, 2014 - INTIMATE


This weeks new theme is INTIMATE!

Look what you can get sometimes if you are intimate!
Little ones you may want or not!
But being intimate is so much fun for you and your playmate.
And if love is in the air then things can get so hot!

I hope you all like intimate better than you liked skeptical!
Geez, I really did not think skeptical could be so hard.

Doc thinks that what is causing most of my problems is my Thyroid.
I am going to take a blood test and they will also check for other things.
And maybe with something to help my Thyroid go back to normal
then I will have the energy to actually write some comments.
I do read them but most of my time has been spent sleeping and
being so sick that I barely can get out of bed.
If I try to do anything then after a few minutes I have to lay down
and then I just kinda pass out.
Fatigue and a suppressed immune system are just two of the symptoms.
It really does explain a lot.
But arthritis is just arthritis.
Anyway I pray it will help.

So lets get going with intimate,
I know you can do something with this one.

See you Thursday!!!
Thanks again,

Here too is an early Mr. Linky again.
