I know a family, who makes it big for the children of the family. It's a big get- together each year. They send someone to a local(designated) municipal park, early in the morning to reserve at least 2 tables, by sitting there until someone shows up to take over the shift. Then around 10am the family members slowly start arriving, with their wares.
They bring food, easter eggs, lawn chairs, quilts, blankets, coolers full of soft drinks, jars of tea & softball equipment for the guys ball game after lunch. It becomes quite a spread, just like a family reunion, this family has every 1st Sunday in August! It's their idea of keeping as much of the family together as possible, and keeping the family close.
I was part of that family for awhile, until my spouse passed away. After that I drifted away from them. I communicate with 2 or 3 of them at times during the year, but don't go to the get-togethers, unless pinned down, to go. (That's another story)
So, what do you have planned? I plan to cook and eat like a pig! I know what it's going to taste like........lol.
I believe food list will include:
Smoked Baked Ham, sliced
Creamed Potatoes or Baked Sweet Potatoes
And for dessert: Banana Pudding (everyone likes)
The garden is coming along nicely. I planted the potatoes and so more radish seeds last Sunday, the mustard spinach, arugula & basil this week.
I can’t figure what ’s happened to the lettuce seeds I planted over 2 weeks ago. They haven’t started to sprout yet. Guess, this horrible weather, is holding them back.
I’m “so” ready to plant more veggies’, but I know the “frost period” isn’t over yet so, I’ll just make myself wait. Very hard to do, when your an impatient sort like me………..lol. I’ve already had a sample of the green onions, now how is that for impatient? They were good too, right along with the evening meal, I had that day.

So, he came home yesterday, called me "baby" a lot, ate the dinner I cooked and slept in the bed with me last night........lol
Since then he hasn't given me a hard look or got an attitude about things that aren't that important. Darn it, I wanted to sleep in the bed alone again last night..........lol

Anyway, I hope he's looking for a "new fool" to put up with his sorry ways. I really enjoyed sleeping by myself last night and hope I get to tonight.
He always gets up at 6am when he doesn't have to. That irks me to no end, I'm not a morning person. He made sure to turn on the TV this morning to bother me, and get me to gripe......I left him alone, but really wanted to gripe. Darn that killed me!
Today's a new day, full of opportunities, we'll see what materializes.

I'm getting to the point I don't want to be around him anymore. I wish there was a way, for him to leave without all the meanness and hurt to go through. Yet, I know he will put it on me, real strong and I'll want to give in and take it all back.
The fear of loneliness, haunts me too, which leaves me undecided as to when or how, I'd be able to initiate, the actual actions. I've been alone before, and it's not a good feeling. Most of the time he's good to me, but the attitudes, are killing everything. I no longer, care for him the way, I once did and that hurts. I just wish there was an easy way to do this.

A little girl said, "I know all about adoption. I was adopted."
"What does it mean to be adopted?" asked another child
"It means", said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!"
A lady approached the young boy and said, "My, but you're in such deep thought staring in that window!"
"I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes," was the boy's reply
The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.
She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.
By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes.
She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, "No doubt, you will be more comfortable now."
As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face with tears in his eyes, asked her
"Are you God's wife?"

Now, comes the choosing of their "running mates". Okay, and this could get sticky........especially, if the "people" like the running mate that the other candidate has and vice versa? How much fun can that turn out to be? Let's see, former President Clinton, has never been Vice-President, has he? Wouldn't that be something? What do you think? Could it happen? I wonder if the rules govern such a thing? Do you know? Could use some imput on this?

Have you ever been to the “Lone Star State”. It is really something to see. We have just about anything you would want to see, visit or indulge in. Texas, is a great wonderful state, with so many things to offer.
I’ve lived in other states, but always came back home. It just doesn’t feel like home, anywhere else. I’m biased, that’s true, but until you come and feast on the pleasure’s of Texas, you haven’t lived.
I’m a TEXAN, “a native pecan”, and darn proud of it!“Made in Texas, by Texans, for Texans”
If it's going to be (Go forbid) Obama, then get it done................If Hillary..............whatever..........I'm just tired..............I grimace every time I hear, Obama's voice.................I just want to throw something at the TV or turn it off. To think, we might have to look at his face and listen to his voice, for the next four years, irks me. I don't believe a word he has to say............he's just running for the "all sought for office".......big deal! I cringed when I first heard that he had joined the presidential race.............I knew, that there was an element of doubt. Now, it's blown way out of proportion. He has a big chance.......and that's a shame............
