I do!..I do!...


I spend most of my time either thinking about things that have happened or might happen and rarely on things that are of any benefit to anyone, least of all to me. No, I cannot remember, but I do have an excuse, or at least I like to think it is a reason for an excuse. I think as a kid I had ADD and when you get old, it is called Short Term Memory Loss. I can go along with that, because I most all the time, remember to do something only if I do it at the exact moment I think it, or say it when I think it . But being the nice person that I am, rather than interrupt a person while they are talking, I hold it, then yes I forget what I wanted to say when the person gives me a turn.

Living like that is frustrating for Jerrell specially. But ya know, he patiently endures it and most times, it really does go in one ear and out the other. We were watching something on tv and he said, yada yada yada and I said, "well I told YOU that the other night", so that was proof to me he does not listen, nor do I blame him a bit. He gotta have nerves of steel cause I do not think he is an uncaring person. Without him, me and his mama would be a total loss and we already got big plans for him when he is finished with us.

In our minds, we gotta a nice one picked out for him. We want him to have a pretty woman that is a lady of few words and just loves to cook beans and taters and hates pizza, as Jerrell is as quare an eater ever, ever created. Who to know better than me and his mama. Now the woman hasta be in good health but still just loves to stay at home and most of all, she gotta love dogs. Me and his mama brag on him ever chance we get, cause we both know he could pop our butts in a home somewhere fore we are ready to go. He is a good man to endure what he has to with us two women in his life. I have often wished we had a daughter to go along with our sons, specially at cooking time and I just bet he feels the same and more so now than ever. Our step granddaughter is 10 years old and we love her so much. Jerrell is great with kids and Cynthia really does love her Grandpa Jerrell. He has a way with kids, just like he did when he taught 8th grade all of the 14 years that he taught school. We run up on many of his former students and they still call'em Mr. Bunting and always have nice things to say about him and that makes Moo proud.

I used to substitute the first few years that we were married and I will tell you right up front, I hated it! Aggravating younguns know how to work a sub and I had more in the corner than at the desk til I decided if I couldn't beatem, I'd joinem and I think I had more fun than they did. Now that was in elementary school, I did not like my year at all at the high school, after all they were not but just a few years younger than me and they was a rowdy, raunchy bunch. I was so glad to get a real job and quit having to babysit younguns .

I guess you can tell by now that I had absolutely nothing to post about today. Maybe tomorrow something funny will happen at the hospital when I go to get my bloodwork done, cause I been a wondering what legally can they do if I walk outside, sit down in my SUV and fire up a cigarette on their property! Jerrell dunning told me he better not get no call to come get me outta jail, but I am so curious to see if they tell me that they own the air on their property. It all depends on how long I hafta wait and just how boring that waiting room is. We will just hafta wait and see. I wonder if other folks as old as me still has a mischievous mind...ok...


God Bless!

Claudia, on forgetting things...let me tell you what happened to me yesterday. I forgot to say that Bill's mama and his aunt went with us on our little journey to see the leaves. I was helping his mama in the car. She has to have a walker where ever she goes. I was going to put it in the trunk. Well, for some reason, I placed my purse on top of the car while I loaded the walker. I forgot it was there. When I pulled out everything was fine. I didn't hear nothing. But about two blocks down the street, I heard this awful noise. I thought I had run over something or somebody. I looked in my rear view mirrow and my purse (it's pretty big) was in the middle of the road. Cars were whizing by on both sides of it. I started backing up right in the middle of the street. Bill didn't know what was going on. He was yelling at me and I my heart was pumping really fast. I was trying to keep my eyes on my purse and back up at the same time. I finally backed over out of the street and jumped out of the car and ran at fast as I could to retrieve my belongings. Now how can anyone forget that their purse is on the top of the car? My Senior Moments are getting closer together!!!! LOL

I substituted at my kid's elementary school when they were young. I hated it too. The kids had no respect for substitutes and they were constantly giving me their germs. I kept getting sick and the teachers would tell me to stick it out a little longer and I would be immune to all the little germies. Like you, I was glad to quit and get a real job!
