RE:WELCOME TO JULY CHAT
(Date Posted:07/27/2015 8:39 PM)


Thanks for sharing this lovely border, it was perfect for today's tag. 

I do not know how comfortable I would be with a transgender, since I do not get to church anymore, I have never met Jennifer.  I think it would be easier to meet her as a woman and knowing she had been a man, than having met her as a man and then getting used to him becoming a woman.  I would probably still refer to her as he out of habit as my mom does.  She pretty much accepts anything, as long as no one is being hurt. I think she is very open minded for nearly 83.

I have not read since mom got home.  I just have not found the time.  I deleted a bunch of games from my iPad as I spend too much time fooling around.

Guess what?  Josh stopped in today and he had Ashley with him and also 3 nearly 4 Riley and almost a year old Natalie.  Josh is being the father.  He was carrying Natalie and she cried if he put her down or tried to give her to one of us.  She did go to her mother.  Riley was all over Josh and they were having fun together.  They were on their way to lunch.  Ashley works in the offices or Holiday where Josh works. So he really should have heard anything odd about her I would think.  I did not realize how young her kids were.  Obviously she does not know what birth control is.  How can I say anything to Josh about that.  I want to but will not.  That is his parents place to discuss with him.  Hopefully they have.  Though I know Joanne is afraid of upsetting him, so it makes it hard to confront him.  Hoping his dad David has been his usual pulling no punches self.  But, she lost Josh's iPhone and David is dealing with having to get it replaced so he is none too happy.  Josh tried, but his Dad is administrator of the account and has to do it. He is none too happy as you can imagine.  The children are beautiful and blonde hair and blue eyes.  I think that Riley can be a handful, but what kid that age isn't?  But Josh seems happy so will feel glad about that and hope all goes well, though I just cannot like it.  He is just 18 and cannot save money for the life of him.  They were all on there way to go out to lunch.  Josh has Monday's off and Ashley has every other Monday off. So they are spending it together.

Have you heard of Feel'n. It is owned by Hallmark and we have joined it. Now we can get streaming movies and programs from Hallmark, including Hall of Fame movies.  So this is a source of movies mom will like and it only cost about $48 for a 2 year subscription.  Plus we are getting a free roku stick. So if mom ever ends up in the hospital again, we could set her up with my back up laptop and the stick and she could watch Hallmark movies.  We would have to start it for her, but that would be fine.  Seems like a good deal.  I wish there were some of the older Hall of Fame movies on there.  I love the Sarah Plain and Tall series.  I have them of VHS somewhere, lol.  They have a whole lot of Christmas movies too.  But that may be temporary as they have Christmas in July going on.

Going to call it a night now.  Maybe I will read for a while, lol.

Hugs,

Good Morning

I feel like I should be getting something done, and I'm not.  The clock is ticking on my appointments and I'm feeling pressured and stressed, and still I'm not doing anything.  What is WRONG with me?!   Will today be better and more productive?   I doubt it.  :-(   :-)   I know I should just relax and what gets done, gets done and what doesn't, doesn't.  That said, we have no serious plans for today ~ Ha!

I'm kind of glad you got to meet Ashley and the kids and form your own opinion, as much as you can from actually meeting her and seeing them together rather than just from Facebook.  It really does sound like Josh is falling into the 'trap' of having a ready made family.  If somehow she really were "the one", maybe that would be a good thing for him.  If she isn't, and I share your fears, he is so vulnerable.  Easy to see how she could become dependent on him, but if(when?) she wants to move on, he may be so hurt.   Obviously I'm just rambling, and I can't see the future, but I worry for our sweet boy.  It will be a very good thing if he doesn't become a 'real' father instead of just a surrogate.  

No, I've never heard of Feel'n.  I will check it out.   We get both Hallmark and Hallmark Mysteries and Movies on our cable package, so we get a lot of the old as well as the new shows, but I know there are many more.  We watched the second Aurora Teagarden movie last night.  Definitely light weight, but fun.  I really like Candace Cameron Brue, but in these little cozies she overacts quite a bit.  Still, they are fun and we both enjoyed it.   We watched Major Crimes earlier in the evening.  We really like that show, not quite as much as The Closer it was spun off from, but we look forward to each new episode.  Tonight, Rizzoli and Isles, which is also based on a mystery book series.

Next Sunday, the new Gourmet Detective.  I always wanted to read those books but never did.  These are also very 'light weight' and typical of Hallmark, and I don't know if the books would be more substantial or not.  The Hallmark movies of them are fun and diverting and kind of just what we need right now.

Love the sweet kitty-cat tag!  Thank you!

Have a great day!

It is funny when you say I do so much and all I do is sit around all the time doing nothing.  You say you sit around doing nothing and I think you do so much.  I think the truth is somewhere in the middle for both of us.
It was nice to meet Ashley and kids, but really did not get to know her at all.  Most all interaction was between Josh and the kids. They did not even sit together.  The whole time Josh was taking care of the kids except when he took the recycling out to the bin.  He posted some pics today that I will share..
The Love Birds

With Natalie...almost a year.

Josh and Riley who is nearly 4 and tall, lol.

Josh, Riley and Natalie

And as Josh says, who doesn't love a firefighter?

Josh has completed his training and now when attending a fire, he does not have to wear the red (assistant) uniform anymore.  So now he is a real firefighter, lol.
Time will tell, but something inside me says he is not ready for this and that he is going to be deeply hurt.  I pray to God I am wrong.
Today is my youngest nephew's birthday.  Jake is now 10.

I have not seen him in 2 years and that hurts, but there is not closeness when they come and that hurts more.  Life is not always how we would like it.
I do not think Feel'n has any of the Mystery Movies on it, but you know they have a lot of family and love movies so mom will be happy with it.  I will enjoy the Hall of Fame movies.  Have you seen the Sarah Plain and Tall series??  There are 3 of them and I love them.  Have not seen them in a long time.  I love Candace, but I do think she tends to overact at time, lol.  May come from being a child star.
I got caught up on Rizzoli and Isles. They sure did not keep that other female coroner around, I suppose they are replacing her with the male that is on now.  I loved it when he rocked out at the little memorial at the bar.  I love the interactions of the cast on this show...that really makes a show for me...it is part of the reason I love Criminal Minds and NCIS.  Love the casts and their camaraderie and they just click when you watch them.  I think they are my top 3 shows.
I usually am disappointed when a show is not as substantial as the book.  I have mixed feelings on this.  If you see the movie first, you are not disappointed in how the portrayed characters or how they left things out.  But often, if you have read the book, you can better understand the movie.  Cannot win, lol.
These tags I was rushed on, so I forgot to save some of them without the extra's comments on them.  I will go back and make us tags of the ones that are blanks.
Have a great day, sister of mine.
Hugs,

Happy Hump Day

I have to say, Josh with Ashley and the kids make a nice looking little family.  Very attractive couple and the kids are so cute. Josh looks right at home with them ~~ and he worries me.  I HOPE she cares as much about Josh as he does about her, and that they go slow and take the time to find out if this is really what's meant to be.  If not, it could be a real mess.

Doesn't he look handsome in his Fireman's uniform?!  It seems funny to think of that as a 'part time' career, though our Arvada Fire Department was a volunteer fire department when we first moved here.   A very effective Volunteer Fire Department ~ they with their EMTs were first on the scene when I had the cardiac arrest and died for just a little while, and though we didn't know it at the time, most Ambulance Services at that time didn't have defibrillators!  Our little Volunteer Fire Department did, and I'm here to prove it.

Is Jake Leigh's son?  A cutie, for sure.

I agree with you about the "ensemble" casts making most TV shows for me.  When Kira Sedgwig left "The Closer", and it became "Major Crimes" it changed, but it holds up because of the ensemble cast.  NCIS has lost core members, but because the rest of the cast is so strong and their interactions work so well, it holds together beautifully. That's one of our favorites, too, though we haven't really gotten into the two spin-offs.  I like the cast of Criminal Minds, too, but their stories have gotten so dark that we don't often enjoy them anymore, and don't always watch.

Speaking of "dark", there is a new Planned Parenthood video and I guess it's really awful.  I watched the intro, but not the actual video. I won't be doing that. Eric Bolling, one of the hosts of "The Five" on Fox, and the host of Cashin In (financial program) said that he had watched all the beheading videos because he felt obligated to watch them as a journalist, and he said this P.P. Video is worse. 

Thank you for the pretty tag!  Have a lovely day.

Hello Dorothy
I worked a good part of the day getting all my data together for August.  Now tomorrow I will work on the header and page.  Having trouble coming up with a theme.  Seems I always do Beach or Summer.  Was trying to come up with something else.  Maybe ice cream, lol.  I don't know....
Yes, Jake is Leigh's.  He has the two youngest nephews.  I have some pics from moms trip.
Kristi and Ben (13) out on their deck.


Leigh on the deck. (he is pretty much bald and started in his 20's)


Jake, age 10.


Ben and Leigh, goofing.  Ben is just 13 and I think will be taller than Leigh before long.


Zeke and Harley their Chinese Cresteds


Diane took them to a state park for hiking.  They had always wanted to go but never had.


Makes me queasy just looking.






If that PP video is that bad, I do not want to see it.  I saw some pretty awful ones with descriptions of how each type of abortion is done with pics. It was really bad. I could never do it. Not even if the child was caused by rape.  If I would have kept that child would have depended on how traumatized I was by it and whether the child would make me think of the rape every time I looked at it. But I really think I could have kept it. My mind seems to have a way of compartmentalizing things I do not want to deal with, though sometimes not.
Time to head to lalaland.  
Hugs,

Good Morning
 


Our Barb is on her way home ~ or maybe even there by now.  How hard this must be.  She just went home in March for her Dad's memorial and now she's going home to be with her mother at the end of her life.  She didn't have that opportunity with her dad, so I know this means a lot to her, but how hard.  Her last blood test was really good so she doesn't have to worry about not being able to go for fear of her kidneys failing, than God. Her Kidney Dr is astounded that she has been able to beat back dialysis for so long.  The one Dr even used the word "if" rather than "when" regarding her going on dialysis recently. smiley78smiley78  She works hard to do everything right, and she has the Power of Prayer working for her.  

  I hope this trip is as good as it possibly can be. 

I finally have an appointment to get my hair cut this morning.  I'm not even sure how long it has been, but I think the longest time ever.  It surprisingly doesn't look awful, but soon I'm sure it will.  I HOPE Sheryl can just give me a good, easy to handle shape to get me past the next few weeks.  I bought some dry shampoo, but I'm not sure how much challenge the curling iron will be one handed.

Mike has already been planning for his Birthday celebration and found a new place in a nearby town.  It sounds great.  Of course there will be more than one place, but I do see this one in our future, too.

Check it out here. Doesn't it sound like fun?

I LOVE the pictures !  Their home looks beautiful and they really are a good looking family.  Is Leigh really happy now with Kristi?  Has he gone back to work?  How are things going with the boy's mother?  How do Kristi and the boys get along?   Nosey minds want to know. ;-)

How wonderful that Diane took the boys hiking.  What GREAT pictures she got! 

I haven't done a thing on next month's skins for the other group AND Barb always does the Sign In Page and Calendar of Events, and I need to do that too this month.  I'd better get cracking!

I have no intention of watching that PP Video either. From what I've heard, it's really horrific, and the "Dr's" doing the harvesting are making jokes about making money for it.  I think it must be pretty gag worthy.   I am upset about a Judge who has (or is trying to?) banned the release of any more videos ~~ not that I don't think this is enough.  It just seems that covering this up and keeping it in the dark is wrong.  If what they are doing is as offensive as I think it is, that should be brought out in the light rather than allowing it to continue in secrecy.  If what they are doing is good and right, being brought into the sunlight shouldn't hurt.  Their fighting to hide in the shadows says it all, I think.

And on that happy note (smiley80), I'd best get ready to go and visit Sharyl.

Thank you for the cute tag!!

♥ Dorothy

I never had a clue that PP was so corrupt.  I wish there was some way to punish all who took place in the crooked aspects of it.  I am sure there were many very good people that were there for the right reasons and doing what they could to help people.  But it is clear there were a great many people who were in it for the almighty dollar and had not concern for life whatsoever.  It all makes me so sick.  Leigh, Kristi and the boys seem to be very happy.  The boys clearly love Kristi and she them.  Yes, Leigh has been working steady for a while now.  It is Kristi who hasn't.  She was working in the office of car sales/salvage but the they laid her off.  So again is just getting unemployment.  Not trying to hard to find anything else for the summer as with her home they do not have to pay day care.  So it works for the best for now.  Diane loves spoiling the boys when she is there.  She took them bowling, hiking, swimming, shopping and who knows what else.  Mom says the boys are the nicest most polite boys.  Mostly due to Kristi, lol.
Poor Barb.  When my moms mother was dying, mom opted to go out by her while she was still alive, knowing that we could only afford for her to go once.  That would be my choice too, so I am glad she is going now.  How horrible to be losing them so close.  Really sucks.  Barb really is amazing.  I told her the other day that I missed our Spider races and I cracked her up, lol.  The little things we did that made things fun here.  Wish they would all come back.  I worry about Deanna and if she is alright.  I emailed her and she never responded. I hate that we do not know.  I cannot believe that no one can let us know how things are.  We were so invested in each others lives, it makes me sad.  I am so happy I still have you.  It is the only reason I come here, lol.  I love you.  
That restaurant does look like fun.  Loving the names of beers and items on their menu.  I am sure you will enjoy it.  Brewery's are usually fun restaurants.
Going to bid you a good night now.
Love you,

Hello

This will be fairly short.  Shauna is here and it's hard for me to write while she is here.  

Yesterday I told Sheryl that I was more interested in a good, easy to maintain with minimal work shape than any particular length for my haircut, so she cut my hair differently, layering it more.  Then she put styling gel in, sort of positioned my hair and popped me under the dryer so I could see how it worked.  She combed it out just with just her fingers, and had me try it too, and I think this will work for that post surgery week.   


Admittedly, being fat and having close cropped hair makes me look a bit like a pin head, but whatever works, right?   She told me I could still curl it with the curling iron, so that's what I did this morning, and it works fine.  I need to get some styling gel to use during that week.

I was confusing about "Barb".  I was referring to Barb (Noni2) who was part of our group for a short while and is a mainstay in the other group, not our "Bubs" who used to be an integral part of THIS group.  Sorry 'bout that.  

I agree that it means so much more to go while the person is alive than to pay respects afterwards.  I'm so glad she can go now.  Her dad went to fast and she couldn't be with him.  She was very close to him. 

I'm glad to hear that Leigh really does have the happy family he deserves after whet (Marsha?) put him through.  I would be shocked to learn that she was in a happy situation.  

I'm sure some good comes out of Planned Parenthood ~ no, I'm not, really, but I'm willing to assume that there may be some.  We hear that they provide breast cancer screenings and other health issues to women, but come to find out they don't even have mammogram equipment in their facilities!  Even a broken clock is right twice a day so they may well do some actual good, but I believe they are primarily an abortion BUSINESS and that's where they make their money.  I hate having to support them in any way.  

Way back when I was working those of us in Management were required to support the United Way and I could do so happily except for having to fund Planned Parenthood.  I was not alone, and ultimately they came out saying you could check a box and none of the money you donated would go to PP, but would instead be funneled into their other charities.  Oh, PLEASE.  It was insulting how dumb they thought we were ~ like PP wasn't going to get the same amount of money whether or not we checked the box.  Really annoying and there were enough protests launched that ultimately the requirement for us to donate at all was lifted.  Tax dollars are a whole 'nuther thing, but I won't get started or I won't be able to stop.  lol  

Again "way back when", we couldn't see the babies in the early stages, so we could just think of them as a blob of tissue.   Well, some of us could.  Now with the modern sonograms, I don't see how it's possible for anyone to pretend that isn't a baby, but just "tissue".  When you see it sucking it's thumb or stretching, all safe in secure in it's mother's womb, and then think that a second later it could be literally ripped limb from limb . . .it's horrifying to me.

And I will quit and be good now.  For a little while.  Ha!

What a beautiful border and lovely tag!  Again, Thank You!

I do miss several of the dear friends who were part of out groups.  I see some of them occasionally on Facebook and periodically have email contact with some, but many I have completely lost contact with.  I never here from Dee, our AnntieM, and I think often of Bonnie and hope they are doing well, though I fear they are not.

I, too, am so glad we have remained close.  I would so hate to lose you, or even for you to become just one of my Facebook friends that you never say anything really personal to.

You're my little sister!
