I've yet to watch this one all the way through, but I'll be doing that now....
Dean and Frank. How we loved them. As I watched the sing Marshmallow world, which is the cutest snazziest song, I hadn't remembered Dean being so silly. And to be honest, I didn't remember the song at all. Cindy made a Christmas CD many years ago (when we burned CD's) and she put Marshmallow World on it. I liked it right away ;o). AND....I've noticed the radio stations are starting to play it again!
Enjoy another oldie on me.

When I spot something I like on the internet or on Instagram I save it to my phone....and if you're lucky,
I send it to you. It's probably annoying but you know what, I really like to share things so deal with it.

Strong like bull. That a phrase I heard a lot growing up. It wasn't particularly about me, but our dad would say it.
I'm thrilled to say that my covid is kind of over. I'm afraid to jinx it. But apparently, prayers, vitamins, ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies all given early work to treat covid. I was mildly achy on Wednesday and stuffy. Thursday I had the antibodies. Got a doozy of a fever and chills that night for a few hours. Woke up Friday morning feeling clear headed and just a little coughy and coldy. Still coughed on Saturday....but am not stuffy today and not coughing.
And guess what? I've got my taste back.
So call me blown away!!!
I was vaxxed and perhaps that helped lessen the symptoms.
But as of today, I feel like my cold is over and I will wait a few more days to start writing my letters to my local doctor, who did nothing at all to help me.
Just imagine if everyone had a doctor who was willing to give them treatments that kept them out of the hospital. Shameful. It didn't have to be this way and doesn't have to be this way...
Guess what, when I got my positive covid test at Walgreens drive-up I also go a email about a trial.
If I had been 25 I would have done this. But as I'm over sixty I did not want to get the placebo and I was actually already taking ivermectin. So. This is hopeful that someone is not afraid to find treatments.
Why there is such fear and tremendous lies surrounding these treatments is utter insanity. I'm thankful for the Frontline Doctors and Alison Morrow and Dr. Drew and even Joe Rogan for their great information and courage to find a cure, tell the truth and get cancelled even when the people with bad motives tried to stop them. One day soon, I will create a big blog with all my links to what I studied for almost two years...and how doing that helped me save myself from covid...with the help of the Lord and your mighty prayers too.
Cause getting those drugs early and getting my taste back so quickly was pretty miraculous.
I was the one who was earmarked for death. Mrs. Comorbidities.
I'm so thankful.

Good morning friends.
Just wanted to let you know I've got Covid. So I would like prayers please.
Im getting the Monoclonal Antibodies this afternoon. Yay. I'm taking everything I can get my hands on.
Unlike the doctors in Wisconsin, I believe in early treatment. My dr. did absolutely nothing. So for the biggest crisis in the history of the US (they'd have us believe) you doc says....let us know if you can't breath.
It's criminal. They didn't even suggest Monoclonal Antibodies.
Gotta doctor yourselves friends. The world has gone mad.
So I am taking Quercetin, Zinc, D and C. Melatonin, Pepcid.
These are all recommended by Dr. Drew and the Frontline docs. Also I'm gargling and cleaning my nose. This is the kill the germs in our mouth and nose just like we clean the germs on our hands.
So I feel like I have a cold right now. My prayer is to stop it in its tracks so I don't go to hospital.
Melinda has it too and she is going to MA's today too. She has asthma so let's pray for her too,
Love you guys,
Almost made a clean getaway......

"Never keep a trouble half an hour on your own mind before you tell it to God. As soon as the trouble comes, quick, the first thing, tell it to your Father.”
My favorite Avett Bro song, I think.
I'm not sure what the brothers singing and the cello player just sitting there means....
if you have any ideas feel free to share the with me.
Encourage one another,
And quick! tell it to your Father.
Let's try this...I think it's a sure path to peace.

So what do I want to share with you today?? My dear dear high school friend, Jeanine, came to town on Sunday. It was a very short and really wonderful visit!
She told me I need to keep blogging.
And while I don't really feel like I have anything to say, I'm gonna dig in and try.
Let's start with aging and death.
I feel old and think I am old.
Yet, a few weeks ago, my friend in France, Corey, shared a story about her mother in law in Normandy. Said mother in law is 92. She is moving to a new place and starting on the renovations!!
Well, if this isn't just the thing I need to hear. No need to park the car quite yet. I want to live until I die...just like Corey's mother in law.
My little renovation!!! A long time coming. Say...twenty years! We built a patio but never felt comfortable sitting out there because of the closeness of the neighbors. They are lovely people but it was just too close to feel relaxed. I mean I sometimes run Ginny out to her lead in my pajamas!
The fence project took only one day! The man was great at this job! I think it's just beautiful. Why would we wait until October? Because we were in line....a long line.
Today I bought some white spray paint and I'm going to freshen up a metal side table. I also bought cement cleaner. We will see how that goes. Two jobs I've never done. I'll let you see how they turn out!
I'd like twinkle lights and a Solo bonfire too.
Good things come to those who wait. (not in the Bible)

Last night I finished reading Anne Lamott's book Plan B.
I found some of her stories engaging and some hilarious, some were so sad and some were irritating.
But they are her stories told with her remarkable way of putting words together. She is self-deprecating and honest.
She is all about the love, baby. It's important to her to love.
It's just that....she has a real hard time loving her mom. She loves her by taking care of her when she is sick and dying.
But she really resents her for being the person she is. For her flaws and weird ways and inability to be a more normal/better mom.
It made me wonder if my children would only see my stupid flaws and weird ways and focus on those when I die.
And I suppose they will. At first. Parents have a way of hurting us when they are not perfect.
My parents were not perfect. But time has rinsed the pain away. What is left is the love.
I let those bad memories fade. I let them go. Way far way...into the fog.
The good memories, I draw near. I embrace them. I cherish them.
I think we need to be gentle with those who have died.
Not for them. But for us.
Learning to forgive people for being the broken people they were is a balm to our souls.
Learning to have mercy heals our hearts.
And then what is left?
The good parts.
The good parts of them. The good parts of us.
The love remains.
Like the cat's water bowl with the hard caked on lime. That lime that will not come off, no matter how hard you scrub.
That's what you want to be stuck with. That kind of stuck on love.
It's what remains.
Love one another,

Here is a clip of Come From Away.
A perfect September watch.
It won the Tony a few years back.
