The Difference Between a Fool and Being Full

One thing truly amazes is how fast Thanksgiving goes. Here I am in the living room relaxing in my easy chair just one day after Thanksgiving. My ears are still ringing with all the chatter that went on around our Thanksgiving dinner table. It is so beautiful to get together with family to celebrate. As I was sitting in my chair, I noticed I was feeling rather stuffed. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is an expert at stuffing turkeys. I am the turkey she stuffs the best. She never takes credit for it because all through the dinner, she asks me, “Don’t you think you’ve had enough?” She has yet to understand that, especially at a Thanksgiving table, I don’t “think.” I am not there to think but to stuff myself with all of the deliciousness on the table. The week before Thanksgiving, I had a doctor’s appointment. I discussed an issue with my nurse, which was, “Is a pumpkin a vegetable?”

The Sunshine Vitamin Helps Children

Most people know that direct sunshine hitting our skin produces vitamin D. Research now indicates that vitamin D is vitally important, in many ways, for a child’s health. This article will discuss vitamin D3 and it’s importance for children.

A Post Thanksgiving Wishbone

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can sit back and recoup from the activity. I’m not sure about anybody else, but a holiday such as Thanksgiving takes a lot out of me. Of course, it puts a lot in me, but that’s another story. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly were catching our breath right after our Thanksgiving fiesta. I was enjoying the quiet moment when my wife said to me, “Do you know what time it is?” I glanced at my wrist watch and said, “It’s 8:30 right on the dot.” My wife threw one of those looks at me, I was tempted not to catch and said, “That’s not what I mean, and you know it.” This is the problem I have. My wife assumes I know exactly what she’s talking about every time she speaks. To be quite honest, it is a rare day when Yours Truly knows exactly what the wife is talking about whenever she speaks. This might be the reason I get into a little bit of trouble with her every now and then.

What Is a Stun Gun and Its Operation and Types?

The Stun Gun is not exactly a gun using the traditional sense. It is a handheld self-defense device that delivers high voltage electric shock through two or more prongs attached to its tip. There are different brands of stun guns as listed in this article.

Is An Apple Fritter a Donut?

I cannot express how ecstatic I was when someone gave me a coupon for a free donut. Normally, I am not overly excited about “free.” All I had to do was fill out a little survey online and they would send me a code that would guarantee me a free donut. In my “daily diary diet,” I have a whole section devoted to the subject that when a forbidden food is free it cancels out all calories. When I first told the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, she looked at me rather strangely and said, “Who said that?” I know we are both getting old but we are not that old! I got close to her, waved my hand so she could see me and said, “It’s me. I just said it. Can you hear me now?” “That is not funny. You know exactly what I meant.” My grin drained from my face and I said to her, “Well, I said it.” “Did,” she said inquisitively, “anybody ever say that before you said it?”

Getting Old Is Not for Sissies

I will not admit to being old, but I am older than I was 10 years ago. Those 10 years have been filled with all kinds of things helping me to get older. I saw an article that said that 60 is the new 40. I have no idea what that means, but I think out in our culture there is an obsession about age. People cannot accept getting older. This year was the 50th anniversary of my high school graduation. Unfortunately, I did not get to go, but I did see many of the pictures from that celebration. Looking at those pictures, I did not know how old my high school friends really were. It probably was a good thing that I did not go for a variety of reasons. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were sitting around enjoying an evening cup of coffee. Nothing like a good hot cup of coffee to settle the nerves. It’s not that I have nerves, but it’s just an excuse to drink coffee.

Splitz Enz Hair Studio

Split Enz Hair salon Greymouth I was quite impressed with my experience with Split Enz hair salon in Greymouth when I went for a haircut sometime in October 2019. I enjoyed the chit chat from the lady who was cutting my hair. She gave me her full attention during my visit not that I would have minded because someone had to tend to the counter each time a customer came in.

Thinking Has a Way of Getting Me Into Trouble

Just when I think I have all my bases covered, a new one shows up, and it’s not a homerun. I know all my tocks don’t tick, but I do the best I can. I may not be the best all the time, but I try, and I try, and I try. I do not want to be a nuisance to anybody, so I try not to, especially with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. (Does trying count for anything?) Quite often, I make the mistake of believing because I have been married so long I know my wife and what she is going to do or say next. Confidence is a tricky thing, however. The more confidence I think I have, the more trouble I seem to get into. I certainly do not want to be negative in this regard, but I have the proof that it works in my life. On her birthday, I try to give her something that will make her happy. If you do not think that is a hard chore, then come over to my house and try it one time. Just when I think she is into a certain thing, I blow it.

It Was One of Those Weeks

At my stage in life, I have experienced a gazillion weeks. I thought about actually counting how many weeks I have lived, but I don’t have that many fingers or toes. It doesn’t matter how many weeks it is. I have lived enough weeks to know, when you think you have experienced everything there is to experience, then another week shows itself. No matter how bad a week can be another week can always be worse. On the other side, no matter how good a week can be, another week can be better. I do have one complaint this week. Who was that knucklehead that invented the telephone? I would like to call him and give him a piece of my mind if I have any pieces left. (Does anybody write letters anymore?) Imagine how quiet my life would be if nobody could call me?

I Didn’t Know How Young I Really Was

I have heard it said that confession is good for the soul. I want to take that a step further and say confession is good for the body as well. I don’t often think about how old I am, I’m too busy with other thoughts. Occasionally, something happens that reminds me I am not quite as old as I think I am. Do not get me wrong, it is a good experience for soul and body. When I get up in the morning, I feel achy, not to mention grouchy because the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage mentions that. I get up feeling old and dreary. I wallow in despair, thinking how old I really am and not knowing what to do with it. Oh, poor me, woe is me. Something happened this past week that gave me a completely different view of how old I really am.
