WAITING

                                                             Cutest Fox Ever   https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cutest-fox-ever-by-m-donna/   Right now I am waiting for my husbands Cardiologist to call me and tell me his surgery is over and all went well. What a horrible time we live in now where you have to leave your loved one at the door of the hospital, go home..and then wait for a call so you can pick him up at the door. I am so upset at people that haven't gotten vaccinated because this is there fault. Right now this is a "disease of the unvaccinated". The first date for his surgery was cancelled because the hospital had too many Covid patients to be safe. A month later there are more patients in the hospital but they can't just keep putting patients surgeries off. I have family members that aren't vaccinated and no matter what I say they still won't get that shot. You can't do anything about that, but I tried. I just called and he is s

September Memories

                                                                             An Autumn Flight https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/an-autumn-flight-by-m-donna/ Can you believe that September is here? Hard to believe that 2021 has gone as fast as it has. It has been a year we probably all would like to forget. And it doesn't look much better for the near future. So this morning I was thinking about the past and thought I would share a little bit of what my life was like 64 years ago. I was pushing buttons on my washing machine when I started thinking about the past and how easy we have it now. 💖  64 years ago I was an 18 year old wife and soon to be mother. We had rented a cabin in the woods for 3 months and paid $50 a month rent. We felt like we were wasting money renting. There was a house on the Mountain Loop Highway that we kind of wanted and we knew it was being rented out. The owner of the house was a recent widow. Her husband had been killed in a logging accident t

August Heat and No Surgery

Wow, we have had heat but managing to get through it without air conditioning.  My last post was pretty heated about vaccinations...well I would like to thank all you out there that have gotten their vaccine, and would like to give everyone that hasn't yet a kick in the butt!! Thanks to all of you my husbands surgery was postponed because our hospital is so full of covid cases. Un-Vaccinated of course! His surgery wasn't the only one that was canceled of course but it is his that we were hoping to get through before summer was over. We were all prepared to leave early Monday morning. We had been notified that I could not be with him at all...just drop him off...and they would call me after his surgery and then when I could pick him

Soon to be August

I don't know how many actually take the time to read this BUT I feel so strongly about something and am so frustrated about it, I am going to put my feelings down. I think it will make me feel better to just type it out. Why on earth are people not getting vaccinated? The proof is there....the vaccine works and its safe. Politics aside....why...why...why? Do you not care about other people or are you so darn selfish you don't give a damn? Personally I think that is a lot of it. They just don't care. They just go about their daily duties and don't give a damn about your or yours...or even their own family! Don't they care about their parents and grandparents? Apparently not. We haven't gotten to hug some of our grand kids or great-grand-kids for months

July Heat

Wet Grass https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/wet-grass-by-m-donna/ Another month has passed. I am sure everyone is warm enough! We had a heat wave in the Pacific Northwest that was very rare. We don't have air conditioning and have never needed or wanted it until the past weekend. We suffered! My heart was jumping around and I thought I would have to go to the hospital. We ended up and sat in lawn chairs in our tv room which is kind of in the middle of our house, with the ceiling fan and our other 2 fans both going. But there wasn't any cool air to blow around. I had a spray bottle and sprayed us both down quite often. They say that is probably just the beginning. I can't understand why some individuals don't believe in global warming or climate change....whatever you want to call it. We have never, ever had heat like that weekend. We really can't afford to put in air conditioning in our old house so I don't know what we are going to do...just suffer

JUNE ALMOST GONE

Lady Daisy https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lady-daisy/ June is almost in our rear view. Hate to see summer go so fast. We are finally getting some warm weather in the Pacific Northwest. I love it here as it is so green and fresh but we could sure use more sunshine. Although they say we are in a drought I don't see it, but that is what they say. I honestly believe that the Pacific Northwest will someday be the food basket for the United States. The lower western states are getting low on water and burning up and I don't see any change in the future for them. The climate is changing! Some people don't see it, but it is happening. If they continue to pave over the Pacific Northwest with cement, houses and apartments there won't be enough farmland to grow food. I hate to see the cities expand out into farmland. I have been fighting that since the early 1990's. A developer  purchased a 550 acre cattle ranch/farm that is to the west and north of our road. H
