Notes from a Country Kitchen

The year just past,
Is like a door.
Shut tight and locked
Forevermore.
Gone is the year,
Of two-thousand one
No Longer yours,
No longer mine
Some days were good,
Some days were bad,
Some were joyful
And some were sad.
I made mistakes,
And so did you
What has been done,
We cant undo.
But we can pray and
God will hear.
Help us improve, in this
New Year!

Doesnt the years roll by and Im hoping you all had a Merry Christmas and now its time to say Happy New Year may God Bless us all and also our nation, and keep flying our flag and praying for our country.

Now, Hank, you just hush up, Lizzie scolded, Doc knows a lot more about that than you do.

When I was eight,
I collected marbles.
And I knew how to use them.
It was not until I was 80
That I began to lose them.

I cant believe it
It was so cold where my friend lived and he had some tame rabbits, and he had to use jumper cables to get them started in the morning.
It was so cold at our house, that it froze a pot of coffee I was boiling on the stove.
It was so cold in December the kids had to go outside, bring the television radio waves in the house and thaw them out so we could turn on our set.
Our electricity was off so I lit an oil-lamp and the flame froze and I wasnt able to blow it out till the January thaw.
We have a combination furnace - oil and wood, and the smoke froze so we pushed the smoke up the chimney, cut it off in blocks and used it to smoke our hams.
I heard that out west they havent had rain for so long that some churches for baptisms are just sprinkling the water, some are using a damp cloth and some are issuing rai .....
