MY OL LADY

SARAH ON THE RIGHT


 Be Careful what you pray for.  More importantly be very specific..I was telling myself its been awhile since I've gone on a date.(I think Reagan was President) So I prayed Lord I need a
Godly,fun loving Woman.One who Is wise and has her own set of wheels.A woman who enjoyed the 80's(My favorite era)Sorry to sound picky. But lets face it.A few of my dates have been Out there.So I began to talk to two Women and was thinking of asking one to go out for dinner. But I got called in to Assist.
 I volunteered tonight at "The Estates"I was assisting an elderly woman to bed.She has poliomyelitis. I've know Sarah about five years.And have been assisting her this pass year.So I was putting her into her bed.takes about 45 mins.Her disease has affected her muscles. She looks up at me and said."You have bedroom eyes." I said."Excuse me Sarah", "She said if I was  54 Years younger and MAYBE turned Pentecostal (my beliefs) Id marry you" ..Back track my prayer request,

 1.  Godly (She loves the Lord.)
 2.  Wise.  (Knows her History)
 3.  Own set of wheels...(Owns a hove around)
 4.  80"s.......( Shes 89)

 Yes so definitely be careful How you pray................... The weddings In March.Just kidding

MY BROKEN PANE IS A PAIN



           One doesn't realize how much we need something until it is broken.My driver side window stopped working about two weeks a go.Its stuck at..... almost up all the way.It becomes a pain,every time I drive, Its a reminder of why we need our Windows UP.There are several reasons, Car jacking, Cold weather, but most importantly to Order in Drive thru with our dignity...........  I didn't realize how often I go thru the drive thru until the broken pane.

                  I pull up an order at the speaker which is fine. Until I have to pull up step out,Leaving my pride in the truck.Feel the need to explain that the window is TEMPERARLY broken.I hand them the money,get back in Shut the door and wait!!!!!.Food comes, GET OUT and grab my order. Glancing at my door to let the Food server know I am aware of the broken window. God forbid they only use one person to take your order.So I usually repeat an awkward glance two to three times depending upon where I go..So I roll along telling myself, I will not go through that again until the window is fixed.

                                 Next day Number 3 starts calling me and I repeat.Enough already,Its not normal to walk up to a drive thru window,It just isn't .So I had the truck looked at.Turns out the motor blew out and my automatic windows wont roll up or down.And in Johns World no such luck to have a back up button to manually roll up the window. I guess I can avoid the whole dilemma  by parking and going in to order my food in person.NOT in 2013 that just isn't right.I got things to do.No time for that.

EXCUSE ME ......SIR!



Just wanted to post a quick entry,Yesterday I picked my six year old niece up from School.As we 

were walking from the classroom and heading to the truck, a little boy around 6  came running up to me.

Excuse me Sir! I looked down and in his hand was a wadded up Five dollar bill."You dropped this 

back there"He said. I was shocked that someone in this day and age(let alone a kid) would take 

the time to return  MONEY.I reached in my pocket and gave him $1.And thanked him for 

returning it to me.The truth 

IM  shocked at how honest he was.To me it shows a lot about who is raising this Child.,In this 

day and age.You never know,It could be his Parents are Grandparents raising him, Great 

Job!..........Made my day.

MY SURPRISE 40TH BIRTHDAY PARTY,WAS ALL IN MY HEAD

YA right John


Tonight we had a surprise party for a friend at Church,He turned 38 and has never had a Surprise party before.There were a lot of people,food and gifts.Very Nice,and he deserved it.BUT..........


                It got me to thinking back to my 40th birthday, As you know turning 40 is a big deal,Turns out mine wasn't as big a deal as I thought. LOL.
The morning of MY 40th birthday I got a call from a friend at Church,That they wanted me to meet them at 6 pm for a Seminar" Ok,sure got it.I WILL be there.'He gave me directions to a elegant restaurant. "WOW they're going all out for me "I thought.

                  Called my Sister at work told her all about the BIG PARTY."How exciting.She said Its going to be awesome let me know how it goes."I thought Ah hah good acting Sister.your driving down two hours just to be a part of it.The whole day went by.Not one phone call from anyone from Church.(highly unusual) We are all very close.Oh its going to be huge, Everyone's going to be there,I hardly could contain myself.So Blessed to have all these friends going thru so much trouble for ME.......Who hoo,

So 5 p.m  rolled around.My friend called me ."Hey can you just meet us there?Wife and I are going straight there after work.And I gotta warn you,Its going to be 2 hours long and boring on the 401 K Plan."I thought to myself.Nice try Tony,
"Sure I'll meet you there"I said.
 I pull into parking lot, It was  Full of cars tonight."Now lets see who drives what in my Church?"Then my phone rings."Hey John its Tony,Seminar is in the back,Walk past the bar.Were waiting its going to start soon,Oh and they're serving fettuccine",OK I said(more like cake.lol)

Called my Sister back,Voice mail." Ah hah of course you cant come to the phone, Your hear waiting to jump out and yell S U R P R I S E ."My hearts beating,Hands sweating.I got to the double doors.And I open the door.Stood there a minute.No Family,No Church friends.NO SURPRISE PARTY.......It really was a 401k Seminar,My friends waved me over."Have a seat its starting soon,And your food colds its been here ten minutes."I gathered my composure and swallowed my pride.I wanted to laugh and tell them,But I was to embarrassed.Turns out everyone forgot..
At 10 pm My Pastor called and wished me a Happy Birthday, Called Sis back and Told her the whole story.We both couldn't stop laughing.
Wasn't personal,Just happened.
