After the last awful cold blast-- not this one but the Last one, I didn't see Frankie and her 2 girls for a few days. I kept feeding and every morning the food had been eaten by coons. So I guessed they were alright.
After the awful cold was over Frankie showed back up at feeding time but I haven't see her girls since. I am afraid I have lost them. I know where Frankie is living and it is a nice warm hole in a very large oak in that tree...... I thought the girls were with her but~~~~~~~~~~~ maybe not????
It has been over a week since I have seen them!!
I am hoping they are fine and just not eating with their Mother any more. As spring is coming they go there separate ways!!
This cold blast is worse then the last one!!!!!! Our high today is 24 degrees!!!!!
I have lived in Florida 72 years and I have never seen a high this LOW!!!!!!! I don't know what is going to happened tomorrow when they say it will be colder!!! Hope they are wrong!!!
Love coming your way, Circle, Allie, Max, and Fern
Pictures from the past!!!! Good memories and some that still hurt pretty badly!!! Monday's
We had a very good week-end this last one!!!! Nothing from Lynn and John. She called this morning and ask if we would send her check book and Tom had already done that so all is OK on the front!!!!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!
I am cooking this fresh and sunny day!! It is not cold out and the sun is out big time!!! It looks so pretty out there today the animals and plants are going to get confused--thinking it is spring!!! Mid-week we will have another COLD blast maybe even snow!!!!!
Love coming your way, Circle, Allie, Max, and Fern
Lynn is dieing...... I had a friend going through what Lynn is going through so I know she is going to die sometime soon~~~~~~~ Tom knows Lynn is dieing. That is why it is so hard on him to say no!!! Lynn knows she is dieing and she is taking full advantage of that fact.
John is still smoking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After 3 strokes----he will have another one or a heart attack some time soon also!!! Lynn is probably smoking too while on oxygen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. The trailer they are in has holes in the roof and the trailer hasn't been cleaned in years--- not one little inch of it!!! When the parametic's come they are in shock at the trailer's condition. The hospital has sent people out to the trailer to help Lynn with something and those people get a wiff of that place amd leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is why Tom was looking so hard to get them another trailer!!
He did and it is a nice trailer but it is a used one that needs repairs that Tom is doing when he can but the last few days he has had no time to work on his bussiness or there trailer so he can get it to them!!! Poor Tom ~~~ he is caught between a rock place!!
The week-end is coming and that is nice I hope!!!
I also hope you have a great one!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love coming your way, Fern
My spell check is not working so sorry for what is wrong~~~
Dear friends!!!!!! Thank the Lord for the inter-net --- a place to ramp~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~.
Lynn's hubby, John was on his way down from Georgia to Tom's shop and has had an accident!!!
Tom called me on his way to the sight of the accident!!! He had to close his business to go help John. Tom said he didn't know anything yet but what John had told him when he called Tom to come help!! It was a bad accident and their car is totaled. Please help dear LORD!!!!!!!!!!
John had told Tom yesterday that he was coming down to see the trailer today~~~~~~ Tom said he wanted to put bars up in the trailer to help them get around in the trailer easier. So John said he would come and look at it and tell Tom where to put them!! It sounded like John was not hurt too badly just the car was!!!!!!
I know this will end someday but it has been going on a long time now!!!!! I am sorry but I am sick of it!!!
Lynn Lynn Lynn!!!!!!!!!! Dear Lord PLEASE help us!!!!!
She called at 6 PM last night.......... She wanted Tom to drive 60 miles one way to help her out of their truck......... and into their trailer and to fix dinner for them. Tom said NO.........
Tom hung up and he called the hospital to find out what happened?????? It seems she through a fit and said she was leaving so they let her go. John her hubby came and got her but he has had 3 strokes and can hardly walk and is really not right since. So he can not do anything for her. He can NOT get her out of the truck!!! She has to be able to get out herself and she has to be able to get in that little trailer door HERSELF!!! Tom has been talking to her about that!!! He told her she needed to stay there in the hospital as long as she could!!! Try to get, at least, strong enough to be able to walk!!!
She didn't listen!!!! She called again at 11 pm we were asleep. She was still in the truck and cold!!!
Tom would not take her call!!!! He is so mad at her!!! He says I have tried for her all my life!!! She just wants and wants from me all the time!!!
I don't know what has happened today but my guess is, he has gone up there to help her--- closed his business and gone up there---that is what usually happens!!
I feel sorry for her but-----------------------------
Mr. Chewy has been asking me to do a post for them now for a couple of years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So they finally got me to say yes, I would do a post for them. As soon as Tom walked in the door with their package they KNEW it was for them and they were very excited about it!!! And that is putting it mildly!!
They sent us a ORIJEN freeze-dried package of treats that the two girls LOVE!!!!!! The treat has fresh chicken and turkey and liver in it!!!! Max -- he could care less!! He watched the girls go nuts over these treats and he wanted to like them and he tried one!!!!! Allie finished it for him b/c he did not finish his piece. But in just 1 minute the package was almost half gone!!! To say the girls liked Mr. Chewy's treat would be so wrong--- they LOVED the treat!!!
We will be buying the girls this treat--for sure!!!
Thank you MR. Chewy so much for the chance to give the girls some thing they never had before and truely loved!!!
Love coming your way, Circle, Allie, Max & their Mom -- Fern
Tom was called this afternoon by John--Lynn's hubby that Lynn has passed out and he couldn't bring her back around. Tom went to Georgia and found Lynn on their bed passed out!!! John said she had been out for hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He tried to get her to come to but she was gone. He picked her up and carried out to our truck and took her back to the hospital. It is a 35 minute ride to the hospital and she still was out. She had a ct scan to see if she had brain activity. She did and so she is back in the hospital for another stay. She was so far gone that Tom didn't think she would come to but she did after being there at the hospital for a couple of hours... She was pretty far out of it but she is alive and surely she wouldn't have been if left in Georgia. Tom got her to where they could hepl her. She had been home less the 24 hours. Now she was back in the hospital.
She is very ill!!
Lynn spent 17 days in the hospital!! She has gone home now to a trailer that is falling down around her and her hubby John.. Poor Lynn!! It is good she got to get out of the hospital !!!! Yes !!! But only to go home to a place that is awful to live in!!
They have no heat or air. Their front door is damaged so badly that it will not even close. Their roof is falling in on them and when it rains they get wet and so does every other thing in the trailer. It is not fit for a human to live in. It hasn't been for years now.
Tom bought them another trailer yesterday. It is a used one that has a roof that has leaked but he is having that fixed and then the roof resealed.
That is what kind of brother he is!!! He has been looking for a trailer for them for over a year now. He found it yesterday and today she came home to that awful trailer. But Tom was able to call her and tell her, he has bought them another trailer and it is pretty and a good one!!! Over the week-end the roof will be fixed and then his next hurdle is to get the trailer up to Ga to them--so in a week or so they will have a nice clean dry trailer to live in that has heat and air and all those good thing!!
My Tom is a good guy!!!
The second photo is our home grown turmeric. isn't it beautiful !!!!!!!!!! There is a lot of turmeric there. It will last us months!!! You use it just like you would ginger root and you store it the same too. We put it in almost everything we cook!! It is the best thing for inflammation in the body. It will stop Alzheimer's in it's tracks!!!
We take it in pill form also!!! If you don't know about it you should learn. It is called Indain Gold!!! B/c it came from there!!
With this awful cold I haven't seen Frankie in over a week now!!! Not good!!!! Either she has left with her boy-friend or something has happened to her??? !!!! Her 2 babies (who are not babies any more) are steady customers every night!!! Always hungry, always ready to eat and so happy to see you coming. For the last 3 nights Tom has been the one to go out and feed them tho!!! He is the one wearing long underwear. It has been in the teens two nights in a row and last night it was 25 so Tom has been their feeder and they could care less. Just bring the food!!!!
That second picture was taken just 2 days before Bambi died. You can see she was so sick!!
Then my beautiful Zoie!!!! She was so pretty!!! Thank you Lord for my 10 months and 2 weeks with her!!! Better then nothing!!! I am so sorry that I lost her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She was so affectionate!! She wanted a kiss every few minutes!!! I never had a dog that affectionate
I am trying to only be on the computer 15 minutes at a time but this post has run me way over more like 30 minutes and it is now blurry!!!!!!!!
My Dad was born with hardly any eye sight and then about 10 years old he lost what little he had!!!
He was totally blind until he was 15 then just one day he could see again--- not well but he could see.
My Dad had no education. He could not see well enough for any school that his parents could afford. To pass the time away he taught his-self how to play the piano by ear. He ended up making his living for the rest of his life playing the piano.... He went to work at 15 years old. His Dad would take him to work and someone from the restaurant would bring him home late at night.
My Dad passed his problem on to me. I have had 2 surgeries to correct the look of my eyes but they could not fix the sight. I had great sight if you look at my Dad tho.. I have had pretty good sight in one eye most of my life. It has only been the computer that has made the problems.
Not being able to drive--I am here all day long-- 5 days a week and you are my company!!!
Now I am losing that!!
I love you all out there!!!! Wish I could read your blogs!!!
Tom's sister has been in the hospital since December the 27. She has Emphysema b/c she has been a life long smoker and now they think she will die. If she doesn't I don't think she will ever go back home. It is so sad to see this 62 year--young woman who looks so old and so sick!!!! It kept me up last night just thinking about the mistakes we make in our lives!!! Some people mess up really badly!!!
I did with the first husband!!!! Thank the good Lord for Tom!!!!! Tom came from the same family as his sister came from but you would never know it!!!! They are so different!!!!!!
