lot of word

A day in the life of a word, A lemmas is formed somewhere in the ether of our mind. It struggles to find a way into the world. Was thought given to where it might go? Who will see it? Who will read it? Who will hear it? It is just a word. Can it be found on a written page or flying through air like a hawk or a dove. Will it be carved in stone? “A word once spoken cannot be put back” Horace. “To be or not to be” William Shakespeare.  How many words will leave the lemmas today? Where will they go? Will they be found in battle? Will they be found healing the sick? Will they build a new world? “I think therefore I am” Rena De carte.  “Give me liberty or death” Patrick Hennery. “We the people” Thomas Jefferson.

Today I read a guest post that spoke of the signature we close with.  Written by Susan Deborah and posted on Corrine Rodrigues web site.  I have given some more thought to this and will tell a little about mine. There was an entertainer back in the late fifties and early sixties who end his performance with these words “Thank you and god bless” it always made me feel good when he said it because I knew he meant it.  His name is Red Skelton.  Here is a little bit of Red.

My picks for today:

To quote Red Thank you and may God bless

paint by words

the canvas 

There was a boy from Arkansas
Who was tanned by the Arizona sun
Out on the planes he saw
Was not his ma or pa
 It had a tail you see

A head full of ears you hear
This was not maze of corn it was plane to see
The corn did grow form a maze where it did disappear
It was gray as a mouse
Smaller then a house
A black line from tail to nose

Now he did not Don to know
He did not have a key
Or a blade of grass
He did not have a penny
Jack or Jenny was hard to say
It did bray some do say
It sounded this way


Dessert burro i.e. Donkey saved by being adopted. Free to live out his life safe from predators and the glue factory. 

My picks for today:
Give these fine blog a visit and say howdy.

lot see spot run

Wednesday child

Today we look at the child with learning disability,or special needs, see spot run.   The mentally retarded, the dyslectic, the physically impaired, the ADHD’s, that live an impaired life. They are not like you and me.  Now, wait a minute I am a learning disable person, I am dyslectic. 

When I was in the third grade I was labeled as a mentally retarded. A slow reader, I could not read aloud, and who could not spell, my coordination at sports was not as good as kids my own age. Looking at me you cannot tell there is a problem there was no label stamp on my forehead.  I was put I a special education class with the mentally retarded, and the downs kids. 

The other kids, the ones that were normal, would tease and made fun of me and us. Teachers would harassed and shamed me for not being able to spell or read aloud well in front of the class.  Its seem to me today and back then that the school system would brand any child they can as being a special needs child to get the extra funding for the school. Now you tell me about reading this sentence “see spot run” from the Dick and Jane series of readers. To me that was the dumbest sentence to read and embarrassing to say out loud. The People I know just don’t talk the way. In My mind I could see my calf name spot, but in the story spot was a dog. My mind would wander around to other things trying to find a better way of saying and to make cents of “see spot run”.

In my special Ed class there was a girl by the name of Maria she was of Spanish heritage and did not read or speak English. She had a hard time with the other kids and her only problem was that she did not speak English and at home they spoke Spanish. The so-called normal kids call her names and made fun of her. She was not a learning disable person but was treated like one by the school and the so-called normal kids.

I had not seen her since high school, but I was pleased to meet up with her again a few years ago. She was working at the same place I was.  There was something that was funny happen there. Maria was very upset with another worker there. It seen that this other gal was a little stuck up at least that what Maria thought. She had tried to make friends with the other gal and was trying to talk to here in Spanish.  The problem was that the girl was from Peru and actually spoke portages.  The languages are similar but not the same. Once I pointed that out to Maria things got better and they became good friends.

What I am trying to say here is, taking the time to understand the other person. Find out how they have to do the things that you take for normal. See spot run.  I have come to believe that the learning disable are the ones, the so-called normal people that cannot understand what the challenges is for the handicapped, and learn to celebrate them for their efforts’.

Pick on me Tuesday 2

Pick on me Tuesday
A little about my rating system, I read a blog picked at random, and I look for things that stand out, like the subject of the post that may have brought me there. I look at how often they post. I look at things that take away from the blog like a pop up, loud music, or something that gets in the way of reading the blog.  I look at the number of followers, to give me an idea of the length they have been blogging kind of like seeing how old a horse is. Basically it comes down to what I like and dislike, add up the likes and subtract the dislikes.  Now four is the total of any of this I don’t like to get into higher math like calculus.

There many sides to blogging there is the up and the down side, the right side and left side. And there is the side you are on. Well then there are the other sides, the top and bottom. There is I blog that is I think is on the right side. Now I don’t know just where that blog comes from. I do know that there are some kids and that some time gets on the bad side, any way I don’t know what side of the blog-a-shear it is on.  Oh! You know there the hit side and the flip side, and what about the fire side.

lot get tested

get tested

It was some years ago, about fifty years, I guess. I was just fifteen and was taking a hunter's safety course. The instructor was a friend and coworker of my dad’s. The course was six weeks long. I don’t remember the instructors name for sure, but I think it was Ken. The classes were held at his house the other side of town. There was a girl there that was a year younger than me and we became good friends, she was Ken daughter.  You may be asking why I am writing about this, well it was the first time I heard of breast cancer. You see Ken’s wife had it. Jolene the girl I spoke of was having a hard time with the facts of her mother’s cancer.

Jolene was doing all the stuff her mother had been doing, cooking and taking care of the house and her brothers and sister, she was the oldest. She had a problem with getting close to her mom she was afraid she would get the cancer from her and she did not like getting a hug or giving one to her mother. Her mother was just home from the hospital after having her breast removed; Jolene said her mom was a freak, and was not her mom any more.  

I tried to understand what this was all about ken wife was a friendly and loving person I could not see there was anything wrong with her. She looked ok to me. Jolene and I talk at length about what she was feeling and I learn what I could about breast cancer. The last week of the course kin’s wife died, the cancer took her.

Back then breast cancer was a death sentence, a person who had breast cancer was looked upon as not being a whole person and that they had did something wrong. Breast cancer was not talked about in polite company or publicly; many people thought of breast cancer as it were a venereal disease.  It was also conceder as a woman problem and somehow she was not clean.

Thank god that this is not the way of today early detection means survival and long life. But we need to do more to arrest a killer. Getting tested regularly, monthly self exams for both men and women is the way to save lives. Learn to do the self exam and if you have a partner do it on each other can be a fun loving moment.

Here are my pick for today:

Please put Jenni De La Torre in your prayers.

Thank you for coming by. Get tested and educate yourself about breast cancer. God bless

lot of love

You see this LOL.  To some It means laugh out loud to me it means Lots of Love.

The one thing that the world needs now is love. Love is the most sought after thing in the world. It is the most abundant thing in the world.  Everyone wants love and everyone has love.

How many times in the past week have you said “I love this”? How many times in the past week have you said “I love you”? Do you have a pet such as a dog or a cat? Do they show you love? How do you show an object that you love it? If there is a meaning to life, a purpose to life, it is to love and to be loved.

So what is love? Can you hold it in your hands? Can you see it? Can you feel it? Can you smell it? Can you touch it? What can you do with it? Where can you put it? You know you want to be loved and you want to love someone. With all the thing and people you love, is there room for one more person or thing? Would it take away love from the people and things that you love? Would you give up your life for love?

What do you know of love? I know my mom and dad love me. I know my brothers and sister love me. I know my wife and children love me.  I know god loves me he gave me all I have and more his love. From all this love I have more I can share with you.

Thank you for the love and visit. I give to you his love he shares with me to you.
 God bless.
