GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:
1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet , with a few nuts
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.
GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD
1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
5) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
6) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.
Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head:
God bless all my family
Wherever they may be,
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For they're so close to me.
And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do;
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Please bless my computer, too.
Now I know that it's unusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord.
It holds much more than odds and ends,
You see, that little metal box.
Inside those small compartments,
Rest so many of my friends.
I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you.
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendships grew
Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above,
To bless those in my address book
That's filled with so much love.
Wherever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
And each person who hits 'send'.
When you update your Heavenly list
On your own Great CD-ROM,
Bless everyone who says this prayer
Is there one thing you just could not do without? Well I always thought I served folks meals, cleaned their homes, took care of those that just for one reason or another just could not do it themselves anymore. I cared for them in their last few days on earth and made them as comfortable as possible, and I feel I was very good at that. What I find I am no good at is asking my friends and family for help when I can not do things. We all have our weaknesses and this is mine. To those of your that are unaware I was hit by a lady using an entrance ramp to the freeway as an exit ramp....and I am alive! But I am very roughed up. My husband tries to come home at least 3 times a week to replentish opened water bottles in the frig and frozen dinners that do not take the hulk to open. I have a long road to recovery but I will ride again...maybe next summer. My bike looks just about as bad as me, but hopfully they can put ole' Casper back together again. The doctors are working on me. Way too many of my friends have had to see me naked...god bless my friend that traveled 1200 miles to spend 5 precious days helping me he and I have been friends since we were kids. He said, you took care of my wife when she and I had a wreck and saved us tons of money we would have had to pay nurses for wound care. I know God does things for a reason so I am working on the asking for help thing...just hope no one else has this problem. So what can't you do with out? I guess mine is friends you don't have to ask their just there for ya like friends should be. Nancy

My husband Tom is the best father ever, he raised his children for many years by himself and that in it's self was a chore with a handicapped daughter. But a fathers love is a great thing! So I wanted to do something special for him for fathers day. I had to tell a lie to get him to take the time off work though...but it was for a good thing! I told him since I started working for Harley I had to go to the ROT rally in Austin. He took 4 days off work and had a reload for him when he got back. So on Thursday morning as we loaded up to go to Austin (not really Austin), my husband was a bit confused when I said OK we're going out 105 towards Beaumont...he looked at me and said "thats not where Austin is Honey", " yes sweetheart I know, but we're going to take the scenic route. That night when we got our hotel room in Daphne Alabama, he said "You pulled one on me didn't ya". We met some old friends there in Alabama the in the morning we all headed to Natchez Mississippi and we rode the trail for the day headed down around Jackson in a really nice place we have stayed before while ridding the Natchez Trace Trail, and the Foot hills Parkway. They kinda know us there and are always happy to see us. But then the next day our friends had to get back to Florida and we went on to Shreveport La to gamble a bit. Then on Sunday we headed down through the woods to come home. My husband said the ride was great but I also got him a shirt to go along with the ride it reads at first glance "I LOVE MY WIFE" but when you read all the small print in between it really reads " I LOVE when MY WIFE says go for a ride". The only thing that could have made it better was the kids being with us...but Labor Day they are all going to be here and we will all ride together! Hope all you days had a great Fathers Day. I know we were long over due a trip!
We have chosen to not renew our membership here and move on to happier times with folks that are really true friends. My last straw was an e-mail from a person we thought was a true friend, we have all been there for this person through thick and thin. I tried my best to stay in touch and even called when we moved closer to invite this person to go ridding. Today we recieved an e-mail asking us to delete this person from of contact list. Do not have a clue what we may have or not have done but this was the last straw for me. We have plenty of folks to ride with and only a few folks on here have bothered to keep in touch so we are sure you all will be to hear us say SEEE YA!!! Try to be better people and maybe someday you can be a better friend! Tom and Nancy
Well I am job hunting and they always ask that. I think my weekness is typing. I tell everyone I can spell but sometines my hands do not coperate. And my temper is my other weekness I am working on that one. So what are your weeknesses?
Finally both got time off to go pick up our Christmas presents...Are'nt they just darling. Casper the white on is Nancy's and Red is Tom's. Now if the weather will rise above 30 and stop raining we'll let ya know how they ride. LOL
I grew up thinking this was squirels, passums and mice. Today it is the junk mail like "Hey wanna see my pics?" (NO I do not); or "get your Colon Cleansed????" (No thanks trying to cut back on that); "Or want a loan?" ( Did I fill out a loan app?); Or "Wanna Chat?" (are you that lonley that you want to chat with strangers). But the bad thing is some of my e-mail goes there. I used to just delete the entire folder without looking...then freinds would call me; "are you ok"? I sent you an e-mail and you did not respond. So now I have to look to see whats in there. Am I the only one that gets this? How do they get your e-mail address can ya unsubscribe?? I have tried that open them ask to be taken off the list NOPE that does not work either. I am not the computer savy person here so any suggestions?
Today the motorcycle world lost one of our own! Evil Kenevel (man did I spell his name right??) But any way he was the only man I ever saw that did all his stunts on Harleys! He was my hero when I was little I wanted to be the female Evil. So as we say a prayer for his family we light a candle for the motorcycle world's biggest loss in a long time!
I have been accused of hurting people on this site. If I have hurt you in any way shape or form I am sorry. Manny is the only person I really hurt and I am sorry Manny I was misinformed. So please except my appoligy, that does not mean you have to like me just understand, and forgive me. Any one else I have hurt? Time for all my wrongs to to right! I try to be a friend to those I meet, I have not tried to hurt anyone I was angry at Manny and lashed out and I am sorry I triied to call her twice and do this but it seems this is where I did it so here it is I AM SO SORRY MANNY FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!
Ok as most of you know I do private duty nursing and I care for elderly folks in their home. I have just one question to ask. If your parent was getting older loosing their memory and starting to do strange things and the nurse caring for that parent told you there were meds that would help with this transition..would you not do all you could to help you parent take this transition with ease? Or because the meds are expensive and it would cut into your cut after your parent passes you hold off? So which way would you choose?
And second part is why as folks get older do they want to bathe and put the same dirty clothes on? Like there are thousands of dollars of clothes in the closet but they choose the same dirty outfit and DO NOT want it washed? What gives there? I have been around elderly folks for most of my adult life and have yet to figure that one out yet?
Lets get it all over and done with and forget all the Nastyness from this past 6 months since these blogs have gone so badly that we lost all the happy people. Lets all get back to planning rides and get togethers like we used to. Thats what I really want for Christmas. Are you game?
Well if you can not sleep at night try righting all your wrongs. Try treating folks that cared for you and took you in like you appriciate them. Try not talking bad about everyone that has ever opened their door and welcomed you in. Be thankful for what you have not what you do not have. Some folks go through life hurting others at every turn they take. I have always tried to treat folks well have a good word for everyone, hold my tongue, but I can only hold it so long then the truth comes out when poked and proded. I try to be thankful for what God has given me...I try to thank thoose that have help me along my many journeys in life. Loss is painful and to my friend whom lost her brother today.....my heart bleeds for you....but he's with Moma now and they're looking down at us. Let's make em proud. To my other friend whom has a knife in my back right now...please remove it!
