Dont mess with Seniors...

I'll be away from my blog for the weekend,, busy, busy!

Wanted to leave you all with a smile on your face until I get back.... something we all can relate to!


If you are a senior you will understand this one
If you deal with seniors this should help you understand them a little better, and if you are not a senior yet….God willing, someday you will be….

(love this saying  "Old age is only promised to a certain few")

We went to breakfast at restaurant where the ‘seniors’ special was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99

 ‘Sounds good’ my friend said. ‘But I don’t want the eggs’

‘Then, I’ll have to charge you three dollars and forty-nine cents because you’re ordering a la carte’ the waitress warned her.

‘You mean I’d have to pay for not taking the eggs?’ my friend  asked incredulously.

       ‘Yes!!’ stated the waitress.

‘I’ll take the special then’ my friend said.

‘How do you want your eggs?’ the waitress asked.

‘Raw and in the shell’ my friend replied.

She took the eggs home and baked a cake.


       They have been around the block more than once!!


"Have a Great Weekend"


Asking for your help....

A Blogger friend of mine is asking for our help...I'd like to post her story, she can better explain....


Dear Family and Friends,

Please help spread the word about my 25 year old daughter, Heather Erickson's medical situation and critical need for a live liver donor transplant.

Heather is a wonderful, caring young woman who has shown amazing grace throughout this difficult time and is my only child and a daughter dearly loved. Seven years ago Heather was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. It's a progressive illness that destroys the liver and despite everyone's best efforts it could not be stopped.

As a result Heather is currently listed for a liver transplant at Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan. The doctors recommend a live donor to give Heather the best chance for survival, due to the critical shortage of cadaver livers available. Rick, my husband, and I would love to be her donor, but we are not a blood match so we are seeking people who are.
Heather needs someone with O blood type (either negative or positive). who is willing to be tested to be a live liver donor. To learn more about donating please call the Henry Ford transplant coordinator Arlene Helms 313-916-9882 on behalf of Heather Erickson.
We understand a living donation may not be an an option for everyone and respect it's a personal decision.

As always with love,
Cathy and Rick Erickson

Update as of 06-28-10

Some "Very good news" to report today...
A quote from Heathers Mom...
"UPDATE: A Good Samaritan stepped forward and volunteered to be Heather’s donor.
It will take several weeks to complete the process and until the tests are reviewed nothing is 100% certain. If this doesn't work out we will need to seek out a new donor".

Please keep this story active,  and if you have the goodness in your heart to be a donor please, learn more about donating by calling  the Henry Ford transplant coordinator Arlene Helms 313-916-9882 on behalf of Heather Erickson.

I might also add, the donor read the story on one of our "Blogs"
We in "Blogland" are indeed special people!
 Now we hold our breath and Pray for a good outcome!
"Thank you all"

Master Bath, Old light fixture, is now "New"

During the "Fathers Day Weekend"  I spent a bit of time on the "Master Bath Reno"

 I noticed the original light fixture above the sink... although I did not like the color, the fixture it's self, was not too bad, but it needed up dating.

It was Gold and the glass covers were printed with flowers and so yellow with age!
"Why take it down" I thought?  I'm one to go to a thrift store,, hey, "I have an old light fixture"
I went to Walmart and bought 4 new glass globes, and some pewter spray paint..
First I went about taping news paper all around the ceiling and down the mirror... Then I washed the fixture the best I could...Then started 'shaking the spray paint' while I said a prayer! 
"Lord please don't let me paint everything around the bathroom"
I was sure to turn off the ceiling fan and put old towels on the counter top below.

I even thought of putting tape over the electrical hole (where we put the light bulbs) 
It was much easier than I first thought. The spray paint went on very even and smooth.
Know what?  I did it!

I carefully removed the news paper and tape, and I could not believe my eyes! It really looked good!
Then I put on the new "Glass covers", and I think I just saved myself more than a few dollars by not buying a new light fixture.
The best part, I did not have to go to the trouble of "Turning off the electric, or taking down the fixture"

I really need  a new camera!  Think someone who loves me would get me one?
Oh well,,, you all get the idea.. this light fixture turned out really great!
It even "Looks New"!

A special Thanks to "Michelle @ Faith, Trust & a little Pixie Dust

"Sunday Smile"


In the small town of Mt. Vernon, Texas, Drummond's bar began construction on a new building to increase their business.

With prayer petitions, a local church started a campaign to block the bar from opening. Work progressed right up untill the week before opening when lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground.

The church folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, until the bar owner sued the church on the grounds that the church was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, either through direct or indirect actions or means.

The church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise in its reply to the court.

As the case made its way into court, the judge looked over the paperwork. At the hearing he commented, "I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but as it appears from the paperwork, we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not."

Have a Happy "Fathers Day" and a "Happy Week"
