one of them days.....

This is sorta one of them "don't get in my face" days, ain't feeling up to par and don't want nobody a messing with me. I am happy that the weather has cooled off a bit, but we just can't seem to get no rain to amount to nothing.
The ground so badly needs it.

Although it rained yesterday, the amount normally would have puddled in the spots that usually puddle, but the ground was so dry it didn't even dampen the ground good or come close to making a puddle.

This morning when I got up I felt like that either those hip and pelvis fractures were aggravated at me or else some more had developed- cause I could hardly turn over in the bed and even harder getting out of it. It is amazing what a difference a day can make when you are my age and have old folk's ailments. I ain't here to tell ya about them, just stuff like that does happen! Which reminds me, it is past time for my 4 hour relief pill the good Doc prescribed.
I often wonder how fast it would take me to meet my demise if I just quit all my 9 prescription meds. What would get me first; would the pain kill me, the angina turn out to be really a heart attack or the angina really be just angina and I called 911, or the high bp gimme a headache or stroke, or the hot flashes melt me before the good Lord and everybody.
I am just not up to trying it......at least.....not today...

One of my favorite hymns is "When the Sun Comes Up In the Morning" and I sure hope when and if it does, it brings better than I got today, NOT that I ain't thankful for it! Before I say anymore, I will just share this with you cause it sure hits my spot today...

~~ A Senior Moment ~~

A very self-important college freshman attending a recent football game, took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

"You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one," the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing ....and," pausing to take another drink of beer.

The Senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, "You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young........so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little fart, what are you doing for the next generation?"

I second that! Good day...until.......

God Bless!

Wooohooo I third that. I have heard the same sort of comments from my kids' friends (my own kids know better than to say anything like that...at least not when I'm around.) This "me, me, entitlement" thing that kids seem to have is getting old.
