Them Crazy Old Days

Last night at work we were sitting around the nurses station and talking about the crazy stuff we did when we were younger.

There was this one time when I went to stay at a cousins place in Louisiana for the night.
She and I decided that we were going to go out to a bar. She was pregnant so she didn't do any drinking but I made it up for her.

You ever heard of Air Bands? It is something like Karaoke.
Now you have to know me for you to realize the significance of this. I am a quiet and by no means an extrovert.

This particular evening I had enough to drink to release my inhibitions and I got up on the stage and did my thing with the Air Band.

When I got through I started to look for my cousin and guess what? She was nowhere to be found!

I didn't know where she was, if she went home or not. I got a ride to take me to her place and wouldn't you know it she was at home and let me tell you I was not a very happy camper.

I was sixteen and wild:
I drank and smoked pot which I liked a lot

Now I drink occasionally and I don't smoke pot anymore. I haven't done that in a bunch of years.

My brother tells me that I got him started on pot but I sure don't remember it. Maybe my brains cells got

He still does it though and even had a pot plant at one time and I am not talking about the ones you get at WalMart.

I'd be interested to hear about some of your wild and crazy days:

Having A BLAH Day

Some days I just feel Blah. Just don't have the energy to do anything.
I took this picture over at my dad's place and it really lets me know that spring is really here.

When I look at the flowers and new growth on trees, it makes me feel better. When the sun is shining but there is a breeze blowing and it is not hot yet it is like being reborn.

What makes you feel better when you have a Blah Day?

I am sitting here this morning and trying to put my thoughts in order to write this mornings post. I have been reflecting on how God intended things to be. Men working and women staying at home taking care of the home and raising children to be good decent God fearing people. I have been thinking about when I used to go church when I was young and how I just remember the preacher yelling and hollering and trying to make people afraid of God.

That is not how it should be. GOD IS LOVE! WHY SHOULD YOU BE AFRAID?

I am not afraid of God I have a very healthy Respect for him. Now if I do something wrong I will be chastized and I don't like the way it makes me feel so I try not to do wrong but alas I am not perfect.

When as children were you afraid of your parents? I hope not but if you did something wrong you knew what the consequences were. Those consequences was what we are afraid of.
I mean who wanted their tail spanked?

I started to write something else but these words just seemed to come down instead.
I am not a fanatic and go around preaching at people. That is a turn off for me.

But if can let people know about God and let them make their own decisions about being saved then that is all I can do. After all God gave people free will to decide on their own what they want to do.

I know some people don't believe in God but I believe in insurance. You take out insurance for your cars and homes. Why not for your soul?

I know that this is not what people are xpecting to read but it is something that just had to be said.

Religion-- Just a different way of getting to the same destination.
Although I don't believe in intermediaries because that is who Jesus is our go between.

Like I said said I have been reflecting on things this morning.
The world has changed along with our economy that it takes two working just to make ends meet and I hate it.

I would much rather stay at home with my children that is why I have taken with blogging. To meet new people and possibly find a way to be able to make money online and it is a slow process.

I don't believe in doom and gloom christians
God is Light, Joy, Laughter, and He gave us a sense of humor too

When I was a young girl there was this boy that I thought was cute. He was a relative of my stepmothers and I liked him. I didn't get to see him that often as I went to live with my mother some.

I got older and decided that I was going to get me a kiss. mmmm. Anyhow I got close to kiss him and I couldn't do it. There was just something inside me that just would not let me kiss him. I'm going drats, whats wrong here?

Well years have passed and I was talking to my brother about it one day and he told me that the guy that I liked tried to make a pass at him. He said he let him know right quick that he was straight.

I'm thinking all this time that the boy was coming to see me when it was my brother all along.

When it became known with everyone what his preferences were. Lets just say they got a good laugh on me. I kind of pick on my brother about it and we get a good laugh from it.

All I can say is WHO KNEW?

Have a Good Day
