Just when you think you are at the end of our rope, I recommend you tie a great big knot in it and HANG ON! I am sure every woman out there has been at this place in their life just once or twice. If you think about it, I bet there are a few men out there that may have been in the same situation.
I guess I got up this morning really missing the lake. Isn’t that strange; how anyone can miss a place. But of course it is such a wonderful place. And of course all my friends are there. I miss even just going to Wayne’s Place.
Well, I must tell you that the Daughter needs some extra help and attention and I must stay here for a little while. So I have decided to tell you all about what happens on the other side of the world. You see it is not in Kentucky (Big Blue Country) and I must admit it is (Big Orange Country)! OOPS, I said a bad word. It will probably burn a hole right in the very page the newspaper prints this article on. But I guess you can still be for the Big Blue even if the people around you are orange. Well, enough of that. It is football time and I just happen to watch some of the preseason games. You know that this time of the year I turn into a “FOOTBALL NUT”! I guess I can because
I haven’t had any fishing to talk about lately….I bet you haven’t even noticed.
Anyway, the Daughter lives back in the woods where the sun doesn’t hit the house until after noon. Turkeys march across her bridge at about 7:30 a.m. every morning. They remind me of the little ducks on the water that parade up and down the shore with their little ones following close behind. You see they come out of the trees up on the hill to go down to the creek for water. Then they also return in the afternoon around 4:00 p.m. Isn’t it strange that Mother Nature has installed a natural clock in their system that tells them when it’s breakfast and dinner time? Most Hubby’s have that clock also especially when they say “What’s for dinner”. Have you noticed it is always when your mind is blank as a piece of paper? When this happens, I just say let’s have breakfast instead. That is always a great answer. That means we have waffles!
This past weekend, the Daughter got a “wild hair” and suggested it was time to clean the garage! It’s really funny but the Hubby disappeared from site when that was mentioned. You see the Daughter moved back home about three years ago and all that important stuff that she had left that would not fit in the house remained in the garage. Does this sound familiar to anyone out there?
Well, the first thing after church, it was announced that she was going to the garage and anyone who wanted to help please follow. Well, being the great Mother that I am, I could not wait to follow along. I was the great “put it over there” person. You see when she would open a box she would hand it to me and tell me where to put it. Often I thought it should go in “FILE 13” but for some reason she thought otherwise.
We were perking right a long and we came to the “big stuff”. Boxes that needed to come in the house and of course we couldn’t find the Hubby but guess who came to our rescue; the Man Friend. When he saw what we were doing, I could tell he was thinking, I should have stayed home and read the funny papers.
Well, I conveniently disappeared after I announced that I needed to see what happened to the Hubby. And the next thing I knew, I saw those “big old boxes” coming through the door and up to her room.
Well, everything seems to be back to normal but I certainly am HOMESICK! I might have to sneak off and come see if the lake is still there. It would certainly help if I heard from someone every once in a while. Don’t know what happened to the Legal Eagle. He must have flown the coop! Till next time, be sure to enjoy every minute of the day. I at least keep trying. Bye now!
