Re: 1st day of November and

i already have my great grandsons christmas present i got it at our craft fair a baby afgan crochetted with frilled edges not a bit hard to make if i had both hands and could crochet it is pink and blue and green and yellow with little splashes of white i hope they like it my neighbor here looked at it and said how is it going to fit anyone i said i hope it will the last time i talked to my daughter she said he was 15 pounds if like we used to do with her if it was cold i'd put her in her buggy and tuck the covers around her he will be 10 months old two days before christmas he was born on my mothers birthday Feb.23rd only difference was she was born in 1900 he was born in 2001 i'm really sorry she didn't live long enough to see him but it says god knows us even in the womb so maybe he introduced them and don't say i'm too fanciful she died in 1971 and my dad in 1973 they were married in 1924 and i have always thought he just didn't want to go on without her

Re: THE GOSPEL ACCORDIG TO KIDS

in our town we had a very successful construction company Reinhardts construction mr. William Reinhardt was the manager of the sunday school one time a friend asked her son 5 at the time what they did with the sunday school collection he said oh they give to mr. Reinhardt so they will have enough to buy food he was probably the richest man in town my friend thought oh my my son need some instruction but reminds me of when i was in my first sunday school class we were 3 about 5 litle girls we all put a penny in the collection box on the table our teacher came and took the pennies and put in one coin she said there thats as much as what was in there but we thought how can that be she only put in one and we each put in one

Re: STRANGE SOUNDS

one ofthr first things i learned to listen for when i was little was the trains they weren't too far my dad worked on the railroad at the roundhouse when they whistled at night dad would say that whistle means he is coming to a crossing he just left the city limits it was a good sound to go to sleep to and with my dad there explainng everything i remember the crossing three shorts and a long there was one when he left the yards one for a siding and one for leaving the city i remember bon ami was the thing for cleaning windows back then but dad said hrey couldn't use it on the engines as it might distort the color the engineer would see on the signals the signals down the track tell him if the block is clear or if there is another train in it of course if a train was stopped for some reason there were the fusees red or green our favorite fourth of july decorartions and the track torpedos maybe now they have c bs or cell phones after all things have changed since the thirtys but i wonder how many chilfdren now are put to sleep with their fathers explaining the workings of the railroad or even with their father there

Re: STRANGE SOUNDS

when we first moved to Missoui and lived on the farm one sound we could hear clearly at night was the baying of the foxhounds one of our neighbors that lived not to far had a pack that had won many ribbons at the Quiver river meet the Quiver is a river in mid missouri and there is a place south of where we were that had fox hound trials they said when the dogs were out at night every man could tell his own dogs by the sound of course i never saw a hunt they were mostly at night but i remember one time i was visiting the farm of the man who had the pack with the ribbons we were standing in the yard and someone her brother i think opened the gate of the pen here came the whole pack straight at us the girl i was with said just stand still and sure enough as the dogs got to us they split and went on each side of us it was different than a herd of cattle where you might be in danger of being trampled they didn't touch us or eewn run into us just half the pack went on one side half on the other

Re: Something to Really Share...Long..

Re: Ice Cream

one of the troubles of this country is not that someone would ask god for ice cream but that some don't ask him at all when he wants us to pray to him constantly and realise that all things good or (bad) come from him who does the woman who protested think gave her the ability or the wherewithal to be there came from we don't praise him for what we do have

Re: The Wonder Years....

they say be careful what you ask for you may just get it i don't think being older would be bad if i still had the use of my entire body but i have tried to keep my mind active and my daughter says that is good there are some here older than i am can get up and walk and help themselves but also some that don't even realise where they are or who they are they say just lay in bed for a year you will be a year older but try to do something you might grow up rather than older i love the show the wonder years how it is with someone that age but listen he is always telling how it is now and just looking back on how it was

Re: consultats and other beasties

story reminds me of who if anyone our nursing home has been consulting first they eliminated 40 beds saying they were selling them to Kansas city who needed them worse they moved the 40 patients to the other two wards there is a short hall and a long hall the idea at first was they would need only one aide on the side they removed the beds from as they kept the ambulatory patients well we have no more aids less actually as many of them quit due to the over work and when someone comes to help you they say i must get up to the long end right away i'm the only one here there are 48 patients up there sometimes i wish the long end would disapear into a black hole and they don't like anyone to work overtime they have to pay them time and a half so sometimes they even send them home and a lot of time the north ward will (borrow) some of the aids we have they use the excuse it is the medicare ward and they need more help maybe with all the economies they are making more profit and their stock holders are happier but their patients and employees aren't right now i am thankful my retirement check and my social security pays for me to stay here but every year they raise the price so maybe some day it won't but thwy say don't worry about tomorrow and maybe if that time comes i won't be here where i worked it was state and we just had the state paperwork to do here thy have the state and the company i said many years ago someday they will have to hire two staffs one for the paper work and one for the patients i think they have almost reached that goal

Re: consultats and other beasties

one of the nurses just received a new title compliance i asked the director what that was she said there at least 800 rules we have to follow she is to see that they are followed and documented you know the old saying if it's not documented it's not done she is a wonderful nurse but all i can say is that i don't envy her

i disgrased myself

when i was in L.P.N. school we had to take a two to three week class of working in every department in the hospital it was my time in the emergency room the nurse there liked me and was doing everything she could to teach me one time she was gone somewhere for awhile they brought a young woman in she was having really bad stomach pains i talked to her and thought this must surely be appendacitis the dr came and they took her up to surgery right away the nurse came back she was talking to me she said what did you think was wrong i said i thought appendiitis she said did you think of tubal pregnancy i said oh no she said the symptoms are very similar why not i said oh it couldn't be that she wasn't married she didn't laugh at me i don't know why not and i hope you all don't laugh either

Re: Dale's Doctor Appointment

so glad dale is better i don't know about chemo but i know radiation made Vickie so sick the dr. gave me suppositories to give her to help with the nausea but i hadn't had any nurses training then and one time her arm got so stiff i couldn't bend it it wore off but if i had known at the time about tardive diskinesa i would have really been scared as it was i knew the radiation would not give her more than a year to live but at least i had that time with her sometimes you wonder why he would take one so young but whatever his reasons they are good and for the best as i read one time when the time comes we know why we would not have it any other way

BIBLE TEACHING COLLEGES

it is good to know there are still institutions of higher learning that teach the bible one day i was in a so called christian chat room there was a person claiming to be a professor who was saying he had been taught how many inaccuracies there were in the bible by professors he had studied under and how anything in the bible having to do with Jesus Christ was no more than a myth and how he was a professor now and was passing along what he had been taught became quite upset with me when i dared to challenge him saying i had read the bible as a child and still had that mentality i didn't stay in the room too long and he didn't get too good a reception anyway he hasn't been back i told him to go on to the pagan chat room where they believe satan his master is a myth



Tue, Nov 6, 2001
Re: BIBLE TEACHING COLLEGES

yes you can thank goodness but i don't think it is very appropriate for a person to come into christian chat room and put down everything a christian believes in i think if they feel that way they should go to the pagan chat room
