Okay, I have a question for all you ladies out there. How in the world do you get your whites to turn out nice and white when you live in hard water country? I have tried peroxide, bleach, baking soda and all to no avail. There has got to be a trick or product out there that will do this.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane snow is glistening. A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight, walking in a winter wonderland. Oh Yeah!!

Monday was a good old fashioned Idaho blizzard day. The snow was falling, the wind was blowing, the trees were swishing and I was watching and loving it all. Tuesday and Wednesday there has been no school due to winds closing the country roads. Here in town it is fairly calm. I just settle down to my good old computer, grab me a cool pepsi, maybe a snack or two and enjoy life. Cheryl is in Provo, UT with our daughter so the house is nice and quiet. I screen all my phone calls just in case Cheryl tries to call and give me a list of things to do.

My daughter went through her operation with flying colors. It was a little more complicated and serious than first thought but she is apparently doing fine. Grandma is enjoying being with the little one. Son in law is enjoying Grandma being there and cooking for him. Sure, leave the poor old crippled, sickly Grandpa at home to fend for himself.

Yes, sonny boy took all his medicines.

I have been such a good boy since Cheryl left that I think I will treat myself to a steak dinner tonight out at the local truck stop. Now before you go to laughing they really do have great steak dinners on Wednesday nights. Us country folks appreciate the little things in life.

Did you hear about the hen, in Mexico, that lays green eggs? I think I would be a little on the cautious side before eating them. Mexico is not known for having standards like some of us do.

So much for today. I am putting in my two cents now because I have a feeling that starting next week I will be busy again. I was just getting used to this lazy life. Speaking of which have any of you seen the lazy chair drill team? I am not sure if that is the actual name but it is a group of men dressed in underwear, socks held up by garters, panama hats on and they do a routine about how to use a fold up lawn chair. It is hilarious.

Have a nice day everyone.

Just a quick note today. I am setting here piddling around before heading off to church. A sinner like me needs all the spiritual help he can get.

Today's note is for Monique if she reads this. I have visited your blog and am intrigued by your screen writing abilities butttttttttttttttttttt, I would like to know more about Monique. Pictures are always good, how your day goes is good, what mischief you have been up to is even better and the list goes on. I mean it only took two years of intense blogging to learn Foams name and see a fairly good picture of her. Come on Monique don't be that way.

Lowa, I was thinking about Princess and wondered how a sweet little girl like that turned out to be a hockey player. That is something like my niece, Jeralee, who is a harpist and a boxer. I guess the two of them can get together and share pictures of teeth missing when they smile.

Gwen, Yes I was alone at the time. I think my problem was that I had not read any good Aussie jokes that day and was feeling down.

Sure have missed Pam lately. Hope she is doing all right.

Dana......... More about you. Brandon is a cute kid but his mother is also an awesome lady.

Alice P....... Oh what can one say about Alice? She is a fiesty Canadian who thinks she should be abducted by aliens. Little does she know they already did and stamped her... "REJECTED". Ha, ha, ha... I crack myself up.

Of course Merle and Jen in Australia are absolute crack ups, along with Gwen. They tell the darndest jokes. I have used some of them in talks that I have given. I have to censor them though cause some of these spiritual people might not understand the humor intended.

Time to go. Must account for my sins. Actually I go so others may have the pleasure of my company and know they were with one of the world's best... an Irishman.

Have a nice day everyone.

Now I don't want to hear another word about older people and their crossing the streets. This sign should be on all streets. (No, that is not me in the picture)

Glad everyone enjoyed the picture of the parrot flower and thank you Sarah for sending it to me. I found it very unique and beautiful also.

Well I had another close one the other day. I was sitting at the computer doing my genealogy thingy when all of a sudden I felt like I was in an earthquake. It felt as though the table top tilted up and was going to dump the computer and all my stuff on the floor. I instantly reached out to save the computer when I realized it was ok, I was the one going to the floor. Apparently I had a blood pressure spike. The rest of the day I could not regain my balance and was like a drunk trying to move around. (or so I am told they act that way:)) Cheryl asked me if I had taken my medicine and after much thought I realized I had not. To make things worse there was an atmospheric pressure change that was quite intense and it, too, affected me. Needless to say I am much better now.

Foam have you taken your medicine?

Not much to pass on today so will close. I didn't get up until almost 10:00 am. Feeling kind of tired so will just take it easy.

Have a nice day everyone.

My friend/relative, Sarah in Iowa, sent me this picture and I thought it was too neat to not share. This is a very rare flower in Thailand and this picture is probably as close as most people will ever get to seeing it. Quite unique.

Thank you Foam. If I had of known it was that easy I would have asked long ago. I really did like the Bertha though.

Cheryl has left me. I am all alone with nothing to eat, no one to wait on me, what will I do if I get sick?

I see that in Canada all the women in a town located in Alberta left for a week and the men had to cope with life, kids and all other things without them. What was funny that for a whole week there were no car accidents, telephones were always available and a few other notables. Hmmmm.

In Britain a bus driver kicked a girl off because she was being lead around on a leash by her boyfriend. The driver felt she was a safety hazard. Personally I wonder why she would want to be treated like that. She said she liked it. How degrading.

Here is a joke that Sarah passed on to me. Thought I would share it. *************************************************************************************

Ida, who belonged to a synagogue group devoted to visiting and helping the sick members of her congregation, was out making her rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, a gas station was just a block away.

She walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas. The attendant told her the only gas can he owned had been loaned out but she could wait until it was returned.

Since Ida was on the way to see another patient, and behind schedule, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the bedpan she always had handy for needy patients.

Always resourceful, she carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gas, and carried the full bedpan back to her car which was decorated with many Hebrew decals and bumper stickers.

As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two men watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said:

"If it starts, I'm converting to Judaism."

Have a nice day everyone.

I still have not transferred pictures to this computer. Been too busy doing genealogy or I should say creating databases for genealogists. I thoroughly enjoy doing this type of work and I learn so much about people too.

Today is Foam day. For some reason I got to thinking that I did not know Foam's first name. (Probably never will knowing her) So I got to guessing what it could possibly be.

Bertha: Nope, that reminds me of an Olympic shot put person.

Gertrude: Nope, that reminds me of a goose.

Ingrid: Well, possibly, it reminds me of a cute barmaid.

Heidi: She would have to live on a mountain, herd goats, have curly hair and sing a lot.

Helga: Don't know what Helga reminds me of. Maybe a little old lady making bread.

Sorry Foam but I just had to say something.

Cheryl and I went to the temple last night and enjoyed ourselves. Afterwards we went to a steak and seafood restaurant which we found was VERY expensive. Our two daughters had given us a gift certificate for a fairly large amount and it only covered 1/2 of the cost. I guess I am not a fancy restaurant person. Give me the Golden Corral and I am a happy man.

Well, starting tomorrow I will be alone for over a week. Cheryl is going to our daughter's in Provo, UT to help out. Our daughter is having two large tumors removed which will prevent her from having anymore children. The one child she has is kind of a miracle child because of those tumors.

Excuse the Irish but DAMN it is cold here. I never have liked February coming since that is the coldest month of the year here. The poor old car has really been groaning about starting each morning. I have been groaning about having to start it too.

Time to close. I sure enjoy hearing from everyone who makes comments so if you visit let me know you were here.

Have a nice day everyone.

Merciful heavens it is cold this morning. I thought they would cancel school due to the temperature but no such luck. I was under the impression that if it got down to -5 degrees schools would shut down for student safety but Cheryl left for work and has not returned. Ah, another day of relaxation and loafing. That silly woman thinks I am going to vacuum the floors. HAH!!!

What to write about this morning. Hmmmm, the brain is dead. (Never mind the agreeing comments.) Just wanted everyone to know the rest of the body is not dead yet.

I had to do one of those safety thingys for a website the other day. What questions. What was your first car. Crap, when you get to my age you have forgotten your first car, your first date, your first kiss (well, maybe not that one), your first anything. Next question: what is your favorite food? Well duh. I didn't get to looking like I do by choosing "A" favorite food. I like many foods but bacon is either number one or very close. It used to be pizza but that has slid a couple of notches down the list. Now if I had access to shrimp then bacon would have a strong contender.

I was reading a blog by Heather and Logan and it brought back memories of snowshoeing, skiing, hiking and just having fun in the mountains. Oh that was another question asked: what is your favorite place to visit? You seen one city you have seen them all. Now the mountains always have something new to look at. Who knows when you might see a deer, elk, moose, whatever. Anyway back to my babbling. I kind of miss snowmobiling, the solitude of being in the mountains with no one else around and enjoying the quiet. Of course there are always the possibilities of seeing naked people suddenly like a group of boy scouts did one day. They were hiking up the trail and her come two women, completely naked. They stopped, looked at the boys, shrugged and kept on walking. You know that made for excited chatter from those young men the rest of the day and longer. I think one of the women's name was Alice.

I used to love saddling up the horse, taking the dog, a lunch and going up to a secluded spot where the horse grazed, the dog chased anything his imagination could come up with and just would lie there and gaze at the surrounding hills and sky. That was the life.

Enough of this blabber. Hope everyone is having a good day.

Have a nice day everyone.

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

Hmmmmm, this COULD be the scene from our home last Sunday.

Good morning. Last night I awoke with this thought on my mind... why it was on my mind I don't know. We had a visitor in our home, my sister in law, and it made me think of her one daughter who is a professional harpist and an amateur boxer (can't remember how to spell amateur). Now this is my thought on that matter. As a harpist she is all set for the day that she should die. She has her harp, can pick out a nice soft cloud to sit on and start her strumming. As a boxer she can beat the crap out of anyone who comes along and says she missed a note. That girl is smarter than she realizes.

Yep, I got the taxes done, the laundry done, the bed made, the car fixed and still had time for my nap yesterday. Am I good or what? So what does today hold for me... sleep, sleep, computer stuff and more sleep. Ah, it is good to be old(er) and have nothing to do. Of course that will all end in another week or so when I go back to driving.

Foam are you nuts? Cooking and cleaning for all those people. That is what a cleanup committee is for. It is fun though to have people over and have a good time.

LOWA if you read this you might also look for the book, "Tales of Despereaux". We listened to the book on tape and the narrator did a magnificent job. I liked it so well I have listened to it 2 or 3 times.

I watched the movie "Seraphim Falls" last night. It was okay, I guess, but different. We have the TV Guardian so it cuts out most of the swear words which makes our movie watching much more enjoyable. I think what I enjoyed the most about this movie was the scenery... simply beautiful.

It is now 8:20 am and Cheryl is off to work. I have babbled on boring all of you so will close for now plus it is time for my first nap of the day. OOOOHHH YEAH!!!

Pam I read your blog but you have so many that respond to it that I just make my comments here anymore and hope you read this every now and again. Same with Foam. You guys are so darned popular (which is good) that I don't comment much anymore. All I know is I enjoy reading everyone's blog whether I make a comment or not.

I don't know how things are going up in Canada. I haven't heard from Alice P for quite some time. Probably snowed in or frozen.

Okay, this time I really am stopping. My eyes are getting heavy and I can hear a harp playing in the far distance. Nope, it was a false alarm, I will be here tomorrow.

Have a nice day everyone.

Monday, January 21, 2008

A cheery good Monday morning to all. I have no pictures to post and for a good reason too. Last week, while right in the middle of some important work, my computer decided it was tired and quit. Come to find out the power supply burned up. In a panic I rushed out and purchased a new computer which has none of my old files or pictures on it. It will take a while but I will get things back to normal.

I don't know if the story is true but I received an email about the prime minister of Australia. In this story he was told those who did not like his country to get out since no one invited them there in the first place. He also said the home language is English and if that was not acceptable... get out. Way to go Mr. prime minister!!

How about them New England Patriots. Who would have ever thought ANY professional team could go through a season undefeated and possibly win the overall championship undefeated. What a feat. Sorry Green Bay. I was hoping Bret Favre would end on a higher note but when you are old (er) feel the cold a little more than those younger guys. My opinion, for what it is worth, is that all cities with extreme weather should have an enclosed field so the players can play according to their talents, not what the weather allows them to do. The days of macho football weather should be behind us. It was hard to watch those guys out there freezing in sub-zero weather.

Hillary is a happy woman. Her tears brought much sympathy and now she is leading the other candidates. I think I am going to cry.

Hope this Monday morning finds all of you well and happy. I know all of you went to church yesterday and worshiped according to your beliefs. I went and pestered everyone I could.

Today I guess I will work on my taxes. Got the rest of my w-2's the other day and there is not any sense in putting it off. I love this time of year.

Cheryl and I watched the movie, "The Bridge to Terrabithia" and I kind of liked it. There was a twist I wasn't expecting but that is okay. I would recommend it to any young person.

Enough of my babble. Today is laundry day, tax day, put out the garbage day, sleep day, eat day and lie down until all this ambition passes over day. I think I will start with the last item.

Have a nice day everyone.

Hi gang,

A special howdy to Monique who visited my site. Monique is from the British Isles so be patient with her. How did you find out about my blog?

You know I started blogging so I could keep my kids updated on their parents. Who are the ones who never read Dad's blog? Yep, you are right, it is my kids. We will get calls asking where we are and what are we doing when all they had to do is visit my blog and they would know what we WANT them to know. Kids, you beat them and beat them and they still don't get the message. I think it comes from their mother's side... they are English.

Took Cheryl to the doctor yesterday so she could have an endecology. I hope I spelled that right. Her throat constricts and they go in and stretch it open. It really is not a bad procedure 'cause it never hurt me one bit. She came home and wanted to sleep all day but I could not allow that... after all who was going to feed me? Today she is up and doing things and being lippy and sassy. I guess it is time for an attitude adjustment. (I sound so mean and tough don't I?)

I still have two more weeks before I get to go back to work. I think cabin fever is setting in. Cheryl keeps telling me to get more but where would I go and what would I do. I don't hunt and the fishing streams and lakes are all frozen over. I have never tried ice fishing because I am afraid I will fall through the ice. (I am a little on the plump side.) Plus all the things I like to do are right here in the house... sleep, eat, sleep, computer work, sleep and eat some more. It is a great life.

Guess I will close for now. Cancers must have their rest to maintain their majesty and etc. Think I will go and see what jokes Merle has posted today. She is always good for a laugh. Oh, LOWA, glad you liked the Fablehaven books. Might try reading Inkheart which was fairly good. Another series that I read was about a girl who wants to become a vampire. For the life of me I cannot think of the name of it right now... actually there are three books. Twilight, Eclipse, and New Moon (I think that is the name of the last one.). Anyway you might enjoy them. I swear the TV show Moonlight is patterned after these books somewhat.

Well the noon time whistle just sounded and that means food is somewhere being served so I must go after which I will have to sleep it off.

Have a nice day everyone.

Can you imagine being out in the woods and a pack of these big fellows are chasing you with teeth bared, growling and eyes glowing like fire embers? I was surprised at how large wolves really are.

I am in a lazy mood so will post some jokes that a friend sent me about children. I think all who read this can relate.


TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America. MARIA: Here it is. TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America? CLASS: Maria.


TEACHER: John, why are you doing your math multiplication on the floor? JOHN: You told me to do it without using tables.


TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell "crocodile?" GLENN: K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L TEACHER: No, that's wrong GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it. =====================================

TEACHER: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water? DONALD: H I J K L M N O. TEACHER: What are you talking about? DONALD: Yesterday you said it's H to O. =======================================

TEACHER: Name one important thing we have today that we didn't have 10 years ago. WINNIE: Me!


TEACHER: Glen, why do you always get so dirty? GLENN: Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you are.


TEACHER: Millie, give me a sentence starting with "I." MILLIE: I is... TEACHER: No, Millie. Always say, "I am." MILLIE: All right. "I am the ninth letter of the alphabet." =======================================

TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louie, do you know why his father didn't punish him? LOUIS: Because George still had the ax in his hand. =======================================

TEACHER: Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating? SIMON: No sir, I don't have to. My Mom is a good cook. =======================================

TEACHER: Clyde, your composition on "My Dog" is exactly the same as your brother's. Did you copy his? CLYDE: No, teacher, it's the same dog. ======================================

TEACHER: Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested? HAROLD: A teacher.

I refuse to be held accountable for the format, the punctuation or the spelling. A teacher sent this to me....

Hope everyone is well and happy. Have a nice day everyone.

Thursday, January 10, 2008

Oh Santa Bear this is what I want for Christmas. A new computer, or at least a new monitor. Hmmmmm, didn't get either one of them. I think Santa is a fake.

Today I have to make comments about some news I have read.

Did you hear about the "mean" Mom who sold her son's car because she found alcohol in the back seat. She said she had told him the rules when she got it for him and he disobeyed them so the results were no more car. Way to go Mom!!!

How about the man in Poland who went to visit a brothel and found his wife working there. She said she wanted to make some extra money and had told him she was working in a store. They are now getting divorced. Well DUH!! Women!! If it weren't for sex I would hate them. Oops that was when I was younger... NOW... if they weren't such good cooks... well you get the idea. Only a woman would go to bed with her husband as a brunette and he wakes up the next morning with a redhead or some other color. WOMEN!!!

Now my friends in Australia I have decided to not come down there at any time. A man was discovered dead in his apartment, in Sydney, and it was proven he had been dead for over a year. Neighbors got concerned because they had not seen him recently. A whole year of recently. Talk about love your neighbor. How could they not smell him?

Then there are the "friends" in New York who wheeled a dead man, in a wheel chair, to the local bank to cash his check. They left him setting outside while they went in to complete the transaction. Naturally he created quite a lot of attention and people were standing around looking at him but it took an off duty policeman to realize things were not quite right. Can't get anything past those New Yorkers. Maybe they thought he had a flatulence problem.

Last but not least is good old Idaho, my home state. We have our share of idiots too. A man cut off his hand and microwaved it because he thought he saw the sign of the devil on it. Now do you think he was high on something or what? The doctors didn't think they could re-attach the hand. Well DUH... it had been cooked.

I received an email from my friend Alice P in Canada. She was showing me 30 reasons why Canadians were considered special. Well, Alice my friend, the United States still has you beat because we still have Hillary. I think I will vote for her just to spite my relatives... NOT!!

Had enough of me for another day. Well, fine, if that is how you feel then I will just quit and go take my nap. I like it when Cheryl is working. The house is so quiet, no one around to remind me of projects that need doing, however I do get a might hungry. She actually thinks I should go and fix my own meals when she is not here. The nerve of that woman.

Have a nice day everyone.

Old Faithful we rode the range together. Old Faithful in any kind of weather. When the roundup days are over, there'll be spice and honeyed clover, for you old faithful pal of mine.

For the life of me I don't see what is so spectacular about Old Faithful. There are other geysers that give off a lot better show when they blow. I guess it is the reputation and media hype over the years.

This guy was a big mooch. He would almost hop on your arm to get a free meal. However it is very much against the rules to feed any animal in the park. The fines are quite hugh.

The end of a perfect day and being spent in a perfect way... relaxed, warm, good looking woman to wait on me... yep it is the way life is meant to be.

That is all the pictures from Yellowstone although I do have more but one can only take so much.

Pam I have no idea what a round tuit is. It sounds like a term those Mad Hatters... er... Red Hatters might use. Cheryl enjoys it because there is not a whole lot to do around here. It has broken down some barriers that the old timers had erected, if you know what I mean.

I have to share this for Foam's benefit. When I was in college I took an art class because I have always wanted to draw, but somehow my drawings made a first grader look like Picasso. The very first day the instructor asked us to draw a mouse. It was interesting to see the different concepts of what a mouse looked like. He hung all the pictures on the board in front of the room and then he critiqued each one. Mine was the last. He came to it, took a step back, removed his glasses and stared in disbelief. It was so horrible. I felt like slinking away under the desks. Everyone laughed and the instructor proceeded to let everyone know that I had no talent, no rhythm and a few other things.

I stayed with the class though and managed to get a B for a grade. I think he felt sorry for me and decided to give me a B out of pure pity. So now you know more about me. I am old, boring, no rhythm, can't dance, and heaven only knows the list goes on.

Got to go. Have a nice day everyone.

Monday, January 07, 2008

Ah, the beauty of Yellowstone in the winter. Look at those trees in the background. It is not fun to walk underneath one of them and the snow slides on top of you.

Foamy I knew you were a good looking little rascal, right down to the belly button. (That ought to raise some eyebrows)

I just have to make a couple of comments today about happenings in the news.

Hillary is in tears!!! She is not as loved as she thought she would be. I am so proud of the voters in America.

Did you hear about the six snowmobilers who were lost in the mountains during a major snowstorm? It is awful easy to forget what your getting into when you are having so much fun. I have never been lost in the mountains but I have found myself in precarious situations due to my own negligence. You can get very very tired when playing in the snow and it really saps your strength when you need it the most.

What is this world coming to. In Texas (sorry my Texas friends) there is this idiot who killed his girlfriend and then proceeded to cook her. Now that is just down right gross. What is wrong with human beings at times?

Pam told a story today on her blog about her first pet dog. It was an emotional story in that it had happy times and very sad times. Anyway I got to thinking about the first dog I can remember. I was adopted and when I came to live with these folks I just could not get enough to eat. I was about 4 at the time. We had a dog named Tip and he was very good and patient with a fiesty 4 year old. However, each morning after breakfast I would go out to Tip's dish and eat all his breakfast as well. He got a lot of table scraps and I must have felt they were too good to pass up. Yummy left over eggs, oatmeal, sometimes a scrap of bread, yum, yum.

One day old Tip watched me come barreling out there and proceed to start munching away on his food. The final straw broke his back. He politely took me by the nap of the collar, drug me off about 10 or so feet and looked at me as if to say, "Don't even think about it anymore." Well, it startled me enough to cure me and Tip started gaining weight from that day forth.

Now you mother's who get all excited when you seen your little ones munching in the dog dish, just calm down. Give the poor dog an extra helping so there will be enough for both.

Almost time for Cheryl to come home. Oh my gosh I just remembered I have not done the washing.... I have got to run. As you can tell by her picture she is a mean, tough woman, and when she says jump... I obey. Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Have a nice day everyone.

Wednesday, January 02, 2008

Well here we are standing in front of our mode of transportation. Two lovebirds with not enough sense to know it is very cold.

This is West Yellowstone, MT looking down the road we came in on.

Yes, it was VERY cold. Add the wind chill factor and it was below zero degrees.

The grizzley's were in hibernation but this old fellow was at the visitors center and still worth the picture. His companion is coming up next. I think it looks like Cheryl when she is picking her... um... toes.

Now this is two old bears after the same fish. We became friends later on.

So typical to see Bison on the road.

They are like watching cattle.

Bored yet???? I will post some more pictures another day. I am tired and need to take a nap. Today is Cheryl and my 42nd anniversary so I must get my rest... what for I do not know but rest I will get. Our children gave us a gift certificate to a fancy steak and seafood place in Logan, UT so maybe we will go there.
Maybe we will go to the LDS temple and pray for our German friends. Oops, I forgot, we don't pray for them on Thursday. Well the Canadians can always use all the help they can get. Darn, I forgot, we don't pray for them on Thursday either. Well Australia was founded by Irish convicts, or so I am told, so if all else fails I will pray for them since they are so closely related. Ah heck, I will just pray for the Irish the most perfect people on the earth... just ask us.
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you are perfect in every way. (Hush Merle, I know who sang that song but it is now the Irish anthem.
Have a nice day everyone.
