It's good to have laughter, supposedly the best medicine.

My day:
Washed three loads of laundry, including My Pillows which I bought at least a year ago and thought they needed refreshing and puffing up.
Not much else. I did walk around to see my son and the doggies. Angel shares her handmade bed with the little rascal. Both are always glad to see Grama.

My friends, I wish you a night of peaceful sleep.

Does that mean the little rascal is warming up to you, joyous?
I took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk at about 10 this morning. Took him for a walk up by Highpoint apartments at about 1 this afternoon. Took him out past the office at about 5. Going to take him out again now.

Today my mom passes away 21 years ago. I had some help from a friend to make a wonderful graphic tag and add a poem and one of my mom's pictures together. I think my friend Lovin did a wonderful job. Enjoy, Margie

Chipper seems much calmer than the Little Rascal. That puppy has energy to spare.
He wants to eat anything on the ground when I take him outside and I can't possibly catch him every time. I fear he will swallow something harmful.

Chipper is 10 years old too- no longer a puppy. He's always sniffing around. He loves it! And yes. Sometimes he finds something to eat that I can't get away from him...

I'm trying to teach Little Rascal that biting Grama is a NoNo.
I think puppies just naturally gnaw and bite stuff, including
people.
I folded some paper and swat his flanks lightly when he gets
too out of line. He chews rugs, carpet, my coat, my gloves,
so I'm trying to teach him. When I'm leaving, I turn off one
light and very firmly say, "Stay!" He does.

What can I say
about my day
anyway..
Took Chipper out this morning about 5:00,to the boardwalk just before noon, after taking Dawn to a meeting. It was drizzling rain, but he didn't seem to mind. Came home, took a long nap, and spent hours on the computer.
Dawn made hamburgers for supper, and delicious as they were, I limited myself to 3. I usually have 4, Dawn has one, and Chipper has one, but Dawn had already given Chipper roast beef, so he had to cry wee wee wee all the way home, er he had none.

The chore of my day was washing Canadian goose poop off my car.
What a mess! It appeared a flock was flying over and suddenly the leader shouted,

The highlight of the day was when Little Chuckie was so glad to see me and

Ben very upset and crying here today. Have a lot on my mind and been very stressful. To many bills and never enough money to go around. I never though or planned on this happening after we retired but it did. I'm not even looking forward to celebrating my 70th birthday in Sept. Would love to go back in my age instead of forward, but that will never happen. Everyone tells me to think of things that will make me happy. I'm working on that as I type this message. Please say a prayer for us both.

This isn't the proper topic for my post, but here goes.

A friend and I hope to get a fund started for "Funding the Wall".
My friend has contacted the local Republican Party and we hope
they will be willing to set up a fund where anyone can donate
$1.00, $10.00, $100.00, or any amount. We must make sure
it is strictly legitimate and will not go to any other fund but to
build the border wall. Congress has tied our President's hands,
We think if the people send $$ Congress cannot refuse. We think
many people will wish to help.
Am I allowed to post this here? If not, I understand.

I really don't know, joyous. Would this be a GoFundMe page on facebook? I think Glad may have to okay pasting of the link here, but as for just telling about it, it's telling about your day, which is what this topic is all about.

I took Chipper for a walk this morning, and again this afternoon. Called my Mom, and she agreed that I should stay home tomorrow, as she hasn't caught anything this winter, and I sure don't want her to catch my cold. Picked up a cheeseburger for Chipper for supper, and will take a shower tonight. That's pretty much my day.

Lightfoot, I just wanted to mention the idea here, not to place a GoFundMe.
I think we may let Republican Party in Taylor handle it. I just wondered about my post, if it is okay.

Your mother is wise. I know from experience that it's very easy to be sick quickly.

Joyous, we have not allowed people to raise money for personal things but for our country is a bit different. If you want to post a link where people can go and donate a dollar or a few then I see no problem with that. I don't want anyone trying to send money to here at SATW for forumotion does not have my personal address and I would not think it would be appropriate for anyone to try to send money directly here.

Hope the idea goes over and yes give us the link.

Joyous you have given me an idea though. I will get with the other admin and see what they think before I share my idea.

Have a blessed Easter every one and remember the reason for Easter.

One more thing Joyous......it may appear that Congress has tied our president's hands but remember he is anointed by God and with God all things are possible. In due time there will be a wall, I feel it in my bones. And I saw on you tube recently (not sure it is accurate) but Mr Trump may have incorporated the military in paying for the wall.

I was a bit miffed after church today but I am over it. Some people (even the Pastor who is also a diabetic) just don't understand that I cannot eat a chocolate bunny.

I refused mine because I knew it would be a temptation even if I brought it home for my sons to eat. I cannot and I will not go off my diet. I won't say anything to the Pastor for he already knows how I feel from other times. I just get tired of watching others eat b'day cake and other foods in front of me. Next time we have a dinner at church I may not stay for it.

I did not prepare Easter dinner today but instead made bacon and eggs and ate one biscuit. Blood sugar was 135 before I ate. Will check it again later.

Around noon, I went first to my youngest son for a minute.
Then to my daughter and gr.daughter and gr.son.
Then to my middle son. His lovely wife and daughter
had made an amazing dinner. His two sons were there.
They also had other people coming in. Typical Italian

Been a busy Easter but I do find it upsetting at the shameful way man treated God's only Son. As I said on FB I think for man the Crucifixion is worse than the fall of Adam. At least Adam didn't murder anyone. God always knew what would happen and Christ predicted it with the Parable of the Vinyard.
I watched the Pope giving his Easter speech and could not help but think that it was the Romans-Italians who put Christ on the Cross and yet they have the brazen cheek to make out theirs is the only true branch of Christianity.
We saw a lot of family over Easter which was nice and my daughter and her partner came for lunch on Good Friday. Such a treat to have her at home.
I wish all Shouters a belated Happy Easter and hope their comtemplations uplifted them spiritually. butterfly :pray: :bible:

Lightfoot, my son's problem is mental anguish,
which has become also physical due to his lack of proper
diet, lack of exercise and communication with other people.
He does make an effort, but doesn't succeed often. We just
keep hoping and encouraging him.

2Anne, I'm glad your Easter celebration was spent with family.
It is distressing to consider our Saviour's treatment and Crucifixion,
but it is joyful to remember that he came to it willingly because
He loves us so very much. Therefore we must reach deep down
and love one another. Not easy, but God is love.

I agree joyous, but I fear these end times may last a long time yet . I feel pity for the children of today.

This morning, Dawn and I went to the food pantry in Door (about 20 miles NE of here). We chose about 5 shopping bags of food, including a spiral ham, a couple dozen eggs, a watermelon, bread, buns, fresh veggies, canned veggies, some canned fruit, cookies, cereal, soups, condiments, as well as laundry soap, deodorant, and cold medicine.
Stopped by the post office to mail a package, then came home and put the groceries away.
After that, we stopped off at the office of the apartments here for a little pizza party- had 2 pieces of pizza each, and talked awhile.
Upon leaving the pizza party, we went to Save a Lot. Got a few things there. Then, we took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk, drove over to Village Market for a couple things that we couldn't get at Save a Lot.
Then, we went home again, home again, jiggety jig.

This Food Pantry, is it a place, like Gleaners, where you
can get free food? We have Fishes & Loaves. They usually
have a really decent food selection, but only what happens
to be donated . I have been fortunate to never need the gift,
but neighbors do take advantage and the produce looks quite
nice. I tried to donate Zucchini last Summer. The man asked.
:Did you see how much Zucchini I have?" I managed to give
it to a lady outside.

This day, I had my coffee, two turkey sausage patties, an egg
on toast. Went to the bank, to Kroger, rode through a trailer park
where my son lived before he moved in this one. I realize how
blessed we are to live in a decent place. His old park is more
than half empty. The ones that remain look uninhabitable.
Sad indeed. I'm so thankful that my daughter and I convinced
him to move here.

Actually, the food pantry we go to is called Hope Inc,, and yes. It's a lot like yours, and we use everything we choose. They also give us a bag of frozen foods, and anything we won't use, we give to our neighbors. Our neighbors sometimes give us stuff too. Terri, upstairs, goes to a food distribution at a church called 'The River', where a large amount of food is given. She'll share some things with us, or with a girlfriend.
Loretta, who lives behind us will shop at a store where there's a BOGO sale, and sh'll give us a bag of oranges, bunch of grapes, whatever. She made a big pot of shrimp fettucini the other night, and sent a plateful to me.

I had corn Flakes with banana slices for breakfast today, and after taking Dawn to a meeting, I walked Chipper on the boardwalk, before coming home. After Dawn goes to lunch with the girls, she and I will go to Save a Lot.

My post is very short because storms are headed in my area.....I had been off the computer this morning because this is nursing home day.

My brother has a food bank at his church and the public is invited to come and get food. Some people need a little help to stretch their food for the month. All food has been donated and some may not be 100% best condition....in otherwords short dated etc. But it is free. I got to see it being set up when I was down in FL last June.
