Hiya all,

Just when you think
You know someone
They tilt the scales
And the friendships done

Around the truth
Same as lies
Stories revealed
in thier eyes....

thought i would drop by and say HI first, lol. then to bring some sad news to ya all.


You're gone from this world
Into the hands of the Lord
A loved child and sister
That had it's own reward

You greeted the world
With arms open wide
As Jesus called you
To be by His side

He reached out a hand
With His love in your heart
And knew it was your time
For your spirit to depart

He took you up to heaven
To make sure you wern't alone
An angel among many
Since your spirit came home

Hiya all,

Pickles,
Guess after years of knowing someone, they can still wear a mask. Just a friend of about 20 years, on a path of temptation in her life. Held out my hand, but she didn't reach for it, instead, she acted like she never knew who I was. Thanks for the back up hun!!!

Cat,
Sorry for our loss dear!! I hope things get better for ya soon!! Hugs!!

Silentstream,
Awesome write!! Welcome to my little forestland!!


The Whisper

Chemo starts tomorrow
Long road ahead
The battle has begun
The sickness to dread
I'll hold your hand
Wipe your face
Always let you know
In my heart, you have your place
We've been through so much
This is just another test
To show the world your strong
And over all the best
So when your in need
You know I'll be there
To hold you up high
Anytime, Anywhere.....

Love Sam

Morning all,

Pickles,
You are a dear!! Thanks Hun!!!! She had her first dose of Chemo yesterday, All went great!!

Walk in your shoes
Feel your stress
Heart pounding
Life in distress
Eyes welling
No where to run
Seems like theres a blanket
Covering the sun
What can you do
Wait out the cure
Hope for the best
The future unsure....

The leaves are falling
Not cause of the season
But the lack of rain
Is the blistering reason

Wilting branches hanging down
The wind sings a forgotten song
The change in nature’s temperatures
Is showing us we’re doing something wrong

Ozone layers
And storms so devastating
This is are warning from earth
It’ll just keep escalating

So we do what we can
But is that enough
What will it be in the future
If we think now that it’s rough….

Dear Sam - I've tried to keep up with the posts and my heart goes out to you. I return your prayers in the hope that they will serve you as well as they served me. Your first two lines triggered some memories...please forgive an old soldier...


The leaves are falling
Not cause of the season
But an agent of color
Orange is the reason

Then my hair fell out
And my skin turned to brown
Two of my buddies
In their own blood did drown

The brunt of the pain
One’s child did bear
Cause no one would listen
And the “Man” didn’t care

Said all this we dreamt
Made up in our minds
No one would believe us
Leave closed all the blinds

Five died of cancer
And three – just died
Twenty-one in total
And I - just cried

All of them gone
Only me left with the tale
Of the day it rained orange
On the Ho Chi Minh trail.

"Never has there been a good war, or a bad peace"...Benjamin Franklin

Defoliating the jungle was a war in itself...
Many men lost, and many tears cried...

Anger still tugs my heart...
So sorry, my soldier friend...

war has been around since the first stone was thrown...and will be around
until there are no stones left to throw...
though it is all political monitary sucking horseshit whacko religion as a scapegoat
it's like playing dodge ball for them when they ain't against the wall...yanno?
(I love saying "yanno")
Some wars were simply started by faces that could launch a thousand ships
Men wanted to sail off of the end of the earth or take an axe in their shins
Than have to stay home and listen to "does my ass look fat?" again
(yanno?)
That is how the first lighthouse came to the shore
a beacon to turn back from that snoring fatassed whore

....so the legend goes
(yanno?)

Morning all,

I went and spent time at my sisters, we talked, laughed, cried, and hugged!! She's doing pretty good, very tired and not keeping much down. But we talked about the positive things we have to look forward to. My girls got their hair cut this weekend, and I am cutting mine too, we are making my sister a hat with our hair sewn into it!

Bolond,
You are never alone!! Keep telling your tale, there are many of you that went through this!!
I have a friend who has gone through so many of the same things!! Feel free to write here anytime!!

Ding, Stillwaters, & dog,
Thanks for the posts and showing your support for everyone!!

Be back on in a bit, feeding the kids!!

Hiya again all,

Steaming up today
Storms erupting tonight
From beautiful sunshine
To tornadic freight

Unstable air
Forming the wall
Clouds and lightning
Will begin to growl

We need the rain
But not like this
be careful what you ask for
be careful what you wish….

Hiya right back at you Mari-Sam. Nice to see you are putting a positive face to all this. I know what you must be going through as my dad passed away from cancer 8 years ago.
Lump my prayers and best wishes in with all the others and I await the day you announce your sister's full recovery.

Be careful what you wish for
It just may come true
And leave you the worse
Bluer than blue

Be careful what you ask for
He just might see fit
To come into your life
And turn it to $hit

Be careful what you wish for
She may be all the rave
And then becomes a she-****
And not what you crave

Be careful what you ask for
I won’t ask your pardon
It’s always up to you
To walk with your guard on

did you know that electricity is still a theory
as the lighting bolt strikes nowhere close to the trees
and positive to negative has never been proven
energy is the only thing not composed of carbon

Good Morning all,

Nice to see you guys keeping my thread going while I'm taking care of things!! Thanks!!!

Winds came through
Many trees down
Houses were lost
I'm my old home town

We weathered it out
In the lower bathroom
Kids crouching and screaming
With every loud boom

We were all fine
When the power came back
And we got most of the rain
Our forests did lack

But the farmers have already
Lost most of their crops
Because the drought
Their predicted income stops

Morning all,

Scoot, I can relate!!! LOL

Kids went to bed
But didn’t sleep
Throwing things into the ceiling fan
Without a peep

Busted their butts
And got them to bed
Woke up at 6
To noise pounding my head

They were back up
Loud as could be
But they quieted down
As soon as they saw me

Hyper and bouncing
Their presence they announce
I’d love some of their energy
Even if just one little ounce…..

Morning all,

Had the flu
All weekend long
Body aches and pain
A headache so strong

Stayed in bed
Away from the rest
Dad handled the kids
And passed the test

He cooked and cleaned
And gave them love
While I watched movies alone
In the bedroom above....

Thanks Baby, Ya know I love you!!!

Hiya all,

If destiny wasn’t real

Where would I be without you
Still playing the game
Wondering who I am
Not really knowing my name

Where would I be without you
Alone and devoid of genuine life
Never knowing the pleasures
Of being your loving wife

Where would I be without you
Still chasing a dream
Even more so, a fantasy
A player with no team

Where would I be without you
If destiny wasn’t real
Always looking for more
In a life so surreal………

Love Sam

black water came on...gotta write something
I'll make it quick and fascinating

water erodes stone and fish feed on the banks arisin'
catfishbait tackle box with three barbs on bare lures and a bag of chicken blood
every country girl will understand who's words were never listened to
sometimes you just have to pull that piece of grass from their mouth...
and make them kiss you

Dog,
Thanks for being there to calm me down about my Father!!
He’s doing good today!!! Now go sell a car, lol


Awe but some fish you catch
Are innocent at first look
Yet, the Mudpuppy’s venom
Is worse than the hook

Now kissen the fish up here
Is “have you kissed an Eelpout”
Your not a real fisherman
Till you’ve done this, no doubt

Now as a ole country girl myself
Nothing beats the river’s rush
Laying back, sandwich in hand
Listening to the silent hush

Just me and Nature
One on one
In the cattails
And the glistening sun……

Think I’m going fishing now, lol

Morning all,

My Dad had 5 bypasses on his heart last week, he's doing good, Just wish I could be there with him. I have a flu/cold, so I am stuck here trying to deal with this over the phone.

I finished the first hat for my sister, just in the nick of time, her hair is falling out so fast that she choose to shave her head. Great thing is, is that her husband did too!! Thats love!!!!!

Hope ya'll are well, Catch ya soon!!

Morning all,

Testing my limits
Burning the candle at both ends
Thank God for my family
And all of my friends

Stressing out
Isn’t helping at all
But hearing my dads voice
I smiled during the whole call

And my sister and I laugh
As much as we can
Over the phone
As the course of my flu ran

So now I’m getting better
And I hope to see them both soon
Just to hug them again
And pass a new phase f the moon….

Thanks to all of you that have helped keep me sane!!! I love ya’ll!!!!!!

Morning all,

Sounds good Hun!!


Then-Now-???

Drifting aimless
Waves relent
Vivid dreams
Thoughts spent

Forever helpless
The years pass
The water turns
Into looking glass

See the future
See the past
Make the reflection
Of what you cast.....

Thanks Ding!!!
Hope you are doing awesome!!!



What a week

Dropped my cell
In the lake
20 feet down
Below my feet

All my numbers
All my pic.s
Lost Forever
In a fix

Lost my voice
Due to a cold
The fever broke
But I still feel old

School started today
So one thing is good
I need the rest
That is, I should.....
LMAO

Leaves turning
Changing shades
Summer’s breathe
Slows and fades
Fall has come
With harvest moon
The wind will whisper
This afternoon
Cooler rains
Fall tonight
Bringing with it
The lunar light
And through the clouds
The stars will peek
Inviting the wishes
The earth will seek……

Happy Fall Ya’ll!!!!!!!!!!!!

Morning all,

Dad gets to go home from heart rehab today they think!! Yippee!!!!
Sis get another Chemo on friday, She is so brave!!! God love em!!!!

Got this this morning, had to share it, lol

New Alphabet - 2007 (cooool one)




A is for apple, and B is for boat,
That used to be right, but now it won't float!
Age before beauty is what we once said,
But let's be a bit more realistic instead.
Now ...
The Alphabet 2007

A's for arthritis;
B's the bad back,
C's the chest pains,
Perhaps car-d-iac?


D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.




H is high blood pressure--I' d rather it be low,
I is for incisions with scars you can show.
J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.


L is for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget what comes next.
N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low,
O is for osteo, the bones that don't grow!


P is for prescriptions, I have quite a few,
Just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.


S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
T is for Tinnitus; there's bells in my ears!
U is for urinary; big troubles with flow,
V is for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know.


W is for worry, NOW what's going 'round?
X is for X- ray, and what might be found.
Y is another year I'm left here behind,
Z is for zest that I still have -- in my mind.



I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,
And I am keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!!!
