Are you forgetful or is it just me. The other day I should say morning, I looked for my wrist-watch for two hours and I thought I’ll just wait, it will show up some where. About two hours later it popped in my head I took it off when going to bed and put it in my pocket in my robe, when I went to bed, which I have never done before. I always lay it on the table when I’m really for bed. Now I understand why my mother would hunt for things and I thought to myself, can’t she remember where she put things. Now I know how she felt, always looking for things she missed placed.

Mr. Jones and her poodle were shopping one day, when she noticed that the gentleman standing next to her at the counter was looking fearfully at the dog, frisking about his legs.” Don’t be afraid of little Pierre,” she reassured him. “He won’t bite you.” “My good woman,” said the man, “I wasn’t afraid he’d bike, but I noticed him lifting his hind leg and I thought he was going to kick me

Ole and Lena lost their dog, Ingemar. Lars suggested they run an ad in the paper. “Won’t do any good, da dog can’t read.”

It is not enough for the gardner to love flowers, he must also hate weeds.

Don’t be discouraged - its often the last key on the ring that opens the lock.

Ideas are funny things, they don’t work unless you do.

Form good habits - they’re as hard to break as bad ones.

Mothers Day
The watcher.
She always leaned
To watch for us.
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window
In summer by the gate.
And though we mocked
Her tenderly.
Who had such foolish care?
The long way home would
seem more safe.
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were all
so full of us.
She never could forget.
And so I think that where she is,
She must be watching yet.
Waiting till we
Come home to her,
Anxious if we are late,
Watching from
Heavens windows
Leaning from Heaven’s gate.
Hoping you all had a nice Mother’s Day.

Hints
When frying chicken I always use prepared pancake mix to roll it in. It browns much quicker to a rich golden crust and if I run out, I just add a little sugar and baking powder to the regular flour and that works too.

What a weekend. We took two vehicles to Green Bay, WI. My son and I were in his pick-up truck and my two daughters and daughter-in-law were in her van. It’s a five hour drive up there. We left Harmony about 1 .....

Was just sitting in my big chair and thought to myself what “Spring” really is to us all. To me the best word for spring is “dirt”. Here in our little farming community we all look forward to the ground in .....

Today I feel like the wind, going fast, in every direction and don't know where I’ve been or where I’m going. Did you ever have days like that? Sometimes I complain about all the things I have to do, and ye .....

Was out visiting the other day and as we were talking I looked down at my watch and it was 4:00 o’clock. Nothing pushing me whatsoever, but I guess the old habit from years ago on the farm always made us p .....
