Random “Stuff”

In order to keep this blog going, I am going to have to stop waiting until I “have something to say” and just type!

I read the obituaries. Yup. Have been reading them for many years although I am only…years old. I get curious and, if the obit doesn’t say what the person died of, I look at the end of the post. Often, it will say, “In lieu of flowers,” and will request a donations to a charity which is often for the cause of the death.

Well, recently, I have seen several “in lieu ofs” for autism organizations. Every time, one of the survivors has been a grandson (in case you don’t know, the majority of people on the autism spectrum are boys). Love transcending the grave. It is a beautiful thing.

Are you sick of this American presidential campaign? Oy, I am so looking forward to it being over. May God have mercy on this nation I live in.

Speaking of November 6 (election day), it is Himself’s and my 25th wedding anniversary. Where on earth did the time go??? We know that the kids aren’t giving us a party. The Boy said, since we (meaning I) hinted so much, he and The Girl are taking us out to dinner. Hey, it’s the least they can do, right?

My mother-in-love and I have a standing date on Fridays. I bring her to the hairdresser and then she takes me out to lunch. It’s a good thing we get along so well. Yes, you do marry the family.

We are hunkered down for what is being called “Frankenstorm.” There is a cold storm coming from the midwest and a warm hurricane coming from the south. Oy. I am so glad God is in charge of our lives. We have bottled water and food. Our next door neighbor has a large enough generator that he kindly offered to let us run an extension cord to our basement where our freezer is. It is full and I’d hate to lose all those groceries.

I’m going to end here with a wish that all who read are well. Please pray for us that this storm will pass without injuries.

  1. I’m so far behind with my blogging. So much I should write but just haven’t felt like it. Most of it is on facebook though. I read the obituaries also. Especially the ones who are young. I am afraid there are more suicides because usually there is some sort of explanation or “in lieu of flowers” donate to hospice or some organization which explains the death. I think that’s great though about the autism support. Happy Anniversary next week! Oh I will be so glad when the election is over. I’m praying this storm isn’t as bad as what it looks. I do have bottled water and food to eat. Will fill my extra bathtub with water tonight. And hopefully I can get up first thing in the AM to take a shower instead of waiting until noon when the power may be out. Ok take care, Gail. And I’m going to try to post on my blog and start up where I left off.

  2. hey G…praying the storm will not hit your area. It’s monsoon season here too, way to early this year…I guess, the weather’s goone nuts most part of the earth. I always love it when you write.. I’ve not been following the presidential campaigns, though I did the last one. At least you have a fair campaign and you know when elections are. Here…huh………I leave you to imagine for yourself. Happy Anniversary, take lots of pictures when you do go out. Have fun, dress up, and enjoy. 🙂 Love ya..
