Anyway……Uncle is still hanging in there. SisterCuz is coming from Indiana tomorrow to see him and I’m hoping we can get together for a bit tomorrow later afternoon or evening….

I finished wall #2 last night.
door right and front
It looks so bright and clean in there now. I finished up the wall around the door last night and I still have the wall to the left to do yet.
door new front
This is the new front door I picked out. I need to get it and get it installed soon. I also need to do the balcony door and the screen porch door. For some reason he put hollow core doors on those. I have several doors in my garage that would work. Just need someone to install.door screen door.jpeg
I have this really cool patio door I would LOVE on my screen porch. I need to measure it up and see if it will work…..

I think this will be ‘The Summer of Doors’.

I’m sorry….I am exhausted today…..

Last night, Chris and Rob came over, picked up 3 motors and 2 Ford rear ends. I sold everything for enough to pay this baby off today.

Edge 1

She’s mine, lock, stock and barrel. Now THAT pay’t can go to the credit card I want paid off next.

I was so full of thoughts about this, it was after 1:30am before I could shut the light off and try to sleep. I dropped off only to have the dog trying to jump back up on my (over waist high) bed and he didn’t make it. He was hanging off the end, so I had to help him up. This was at 3 or 4am. It scared the cat out of a deep sleep so HE jumped up, scaring the shit outta me….

You can’t make this shit up…..

Tidbits to remember: Memorial Day 2019


I hope you don’t think that.

It’s common for volunteers to place the American Flag on graves in the national cemeteries. Memorial Day is also a popular day for people to visit cemeteries and honor those who have died while serving in the military.

Memorial Day 5

Although not as popular today, one Memorial Day tradition was to eat a picnic meal while sitting on the grounds of a cemetery.

Because it is SO MUCH more than that.

Memorial Day 10

There are more than 300,000 fallen soldiers buried at Arlington Cemetery. On average, 28 burials are held there each day.

And remember who you need to thank.

They are the ones that cannot say “you are most welcome”

Memorial day 3

Approximately 620,000 soldiers on both sides died during the Civil War.

These photos make my heart clutch in pain.

The Grand Army of the Republic was created by the Union Army to honor their dead. After World War I, the American Legion took over their duties.

Please always remember……………..

Memorial day 2

In 1966, President Johnson named Waterloo, New York, as the original place of Memorial Day.

…..and never forget………

Memorial Day 7

Congress passed the National Moment of Remembrance Act in 2000 that requires all Americans to stop what they are doing at 3:00pm on Memorial Day to remember and honor those who have died serving the United States.

I go stand in front of my Grandfather’s grave. And I remember him.

On Memorial Day, the flag is supposed to be flown at half-mast until noon and then raised to full mast until sunset.
Barely. But I do.

Memorial Day 6

Memorial Day is sometimes confused with Veterans Day. However, Veterans Day honors ALL United States military veterans, while Memorial Day honors the soldiers who died while serving.

NEVER EVER forget why you get that 3 day weekend the end of May. Because if you do? Their sacrifice is for nothing.

Memorial day 4

Go see this. Maybe you’ll understand. It will take your breath away.

So I left Building 49….

……..in tears of grief. Seeing Uncle so changed ………..

It was raining when I walked in there.

It was snowing when I walked out of there.

I don’t think poor Gary knew what to do with me.

So we headed home.

He is a wonderful man.

One day I will have to tell him I love him huh?
