time to celebrate the 19th !!!! monster cake day !!!!
what time is cake time????? we should set one like 1:19pm
time to blow out the candle...
that is when most of the people are here...
so be it....
and with luck there will be some left for breakfast...
that will take care of all birthdays-- aniverseries and whatever else needs celebrating this month
now...... it is about kids birthday partys and candle blowing
was this just the antique way of vaccinating your kids?
i know my mother went out of her way to have my 2 sisters and i
play with anyone who had the measles... so when we got older and pregnant
we would be immune to measles...
she was concerned that measlea as an adult would cause birth defects
we went that road with mumps too-- and chicken pox type things...
so a kids birthday party for a kid coming down with the measles might
be an effective way to ward off birth defects.
it is a stretch... but there is a thread of logic there..
speaking of threads--- someone got me playing this lumonisty brain training game
and i have to report-- i find their statistics baffleing they have decided after
one week, that i am in the 86th percentile for memory compared to my age group.
boy that sure doesn't say much for my age group !!! my memory was never even adequate
and now it is worse.... so if the 86th percentile is correct, be careful of all the 77 year olds wandering
around the streets wondering where are thier glasses/phone/hearing aid/or any other detachable part of aging.
some woman from the next town ( of course i can not rememeber her name ... see above...) came here
her mother once had a dane.. and was now not doing well on oxygen etc...
would i??? of course... so bentley and i went to visit.. he enjoyed it-- so did the family..
sooooo. of course i started them on the web cameras... the daughter stayed here for mail call
and before leaving said "you have changed my life and outlook"
nutty crazy acres wins again !!
i am reminded of some poem??
most people live a life of quiet desparation
unfortunately i can not remember the rest of the poem- or it's message
but i do look on crazy acres as a method of opening mental doors that have been closed far too long.
it is a serious calling-- to jar people loose.
projects of the day...
our new tables should be here-- and if it is not windy ( dust etc) we will coat them with polyurethane..
they are a thing of beauty... and round... much more conversational--
even if you are not deaf...it includes more people
the standard picnic table 3 on a side becomes 2 conversations
which reminds me i must make a reservation for dinner when the accreditation sheila gets here.
i have to use up xxxx per month in the dining room or they charge me anyway...\
they only reason i keep a membership is the food is decient and i can make a reservation -- with no standing around,...
plus they have a room witha square table which is perfect for meeting type dinners...
2 or 3 on a side is 12 people and one conversation. it is 3 miles away.
one meeting type dinner and i am all set for 3 months.
bless hunter for bailing me out with a poem about wendy, his dog.
(hunter is in 3rd grade )
Wendy the Dog
She is a gentle giant,
Soft and black with white markings.
Big dark eyes And a heart so big.
She helps me walk,
Working so hard.
But when she starts to get tired,
She takes a nap.
I have to feed her,
Give her water, And let her out.
If I don't, she is sure to tell me.
Wendy is a great big help,
A true friend.
So glad she is My gentle giant.
