My slideshow of the local beach..

It was in the mid-80's on Monday. My big sister Donna and I went to a local beach and check it out. There were some people were on the beach. It was so sunny and clear. I am so surprised that it wasn't as windy as I thought. We had a good weeken in the 70's and my father was on the front porch Sunday. I don't know about Monday though. He really shouldn't be in the sun since the surgery. In the meantime he is doing well. I am going to keep it short and everybody have a good Tuesday.

He's not bouncing back into it as much he did before the surgery. Well, that's enough for now and everybody enjoy your week.

The Sack Lunches..

I have recieved this from a friend in my e-mail. Though I will share it with you..Have a good day..

The Sack Lunches
I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be along flight. 'I'm glad I have a good book to read Perhaps I will get a short nap,' I thought.

Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided tostart a conversation.'Where are you headed?' I asked the soldier seated nearest to me.

'Petawawa. We'll be there for twoweeks for special training, and thenwe're being deployed to Afghanistan

After flying for about an hour, anannouncement was made that sacklunches were available for fivedollars. It would be several hoursbefore we reached the east, and Iquickly decided a lunch would helppass the time..

As I reached for my wallet, Ioverheard soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch.'No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch.. Probably wouldn't be worth five bucks. I'll wait till we get to base '

His friend agreed.

I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill.'Take a lunch to all those soldiers.' She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. 'My son was asoldier in Iraq ; it's almost like you are doing it for him.'

Picking up ten sacks, she headed upthe aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seatand asked, 'Which do you like best - beef or chicken?'

'Chicken,' I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. 'This is yours, thanks..'

After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane,heading for the rest room.A man stopped me. 'I saw what you did. I want to be part of it.Here, take this.' He handed me twenty-five dollars.

Soon after I returned to my seat, Isaw the Flight Captain coming downthe aisle, looking at the aislenumbers as he walked, I hoped he wasnot looking for me, but noticed hewas looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane.When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, an said,'I want to shake your hand.'

Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain's hand. With a booming voice he said, 'I wasa soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness Inever forgot.' I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers.

Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs.A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm.

When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane doorwas a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned,and walked away without saying aword. Another twenty-five dollars!

Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to themand handed them seventy-five dollars. 'It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich.God Bless You.'

Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return.These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals.

It seemed so little...

A veteran is someone who, at onepoint in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including My life.'

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'

Just a little bit here and there..

Today, we (my Mom, Donna, and me) went to visit Dad at the therapy place and Dad is doing good. We'd been visiting just about every afternoon. My Dad have therapy in the mornings and at late noons. Anyway, we just visit him in the late afternoon. Yesterday we went in twice because big brother in my SIL invited us for dinner and we all went in one car and leaves my mom's car at the facility. It was awful sweet of them to do that to us and save little time by going out of our way to visit Dad. Thanks GOD that I have several siblings. I believe that my Dad might be home late in the next week or not. My other brother is having surgery on his foot. Another one of those days. That will be in my other post. It will be a rough week for Dad to come home for. I don't think he's ready even he thinks it is.
I got another weird story for you all. On Easter Sunday, my Mom and I had a minor car accident on the way to church. We were in the intersection and turning as while we were waiting for people to cross the street All of the sudden I look see if anyone was coming while mom was paying attention to pedestrians to cross. Just out of the blue the guy was speeding to catch the green light and ran right into the front of the passenger side of the car. I was on that side and NO INJURY FOLKS. Mom was a little on the upset side and I'm just shocked by what just happened. We are okay!! Thanks God! My Mom and I were never been in an accident before and it was a scary one too. We never made it to Church that day and we just went home.
Donna is doing good. She'll probably post later over the weekend. She probably have better days . Today she rode her exercised bike and rode 3.1 mi. That what I do when I do the walking dvd..I haven't in a while. I was going to do it this week, since the accident I want to take it easy before I sprang my neck and all..Well this it is for now talk to all soon and have a good weekend.

Hmm What to write?

Well, its been a busy weekend. My Dad is in the nursing facility for therapy. He'd been good. My mom is there today with my other sister. He went there Sunday and started therapy Monday. Both morining and afternoon sessions. Yesterday, my Mother and I went there in the afternoon and I asked my Father if my big brother stop in the early afternoon. He said "No". Then the next thing I knew that he and my SIL showed up. We were there 'til my Father's dinner hour and my brother and SIL invited us out. As soon we came back from dinner, my father's leg looks purple.. ugh! We waited to the nurse to come in see the wound was and she said, "that happened a few days after the surgery." What a relief..So, went home. He is doing okay and he got his haircut today.. Something that he needed I guess.
WE had a nice Easter and went to my sister's for dinner and went back to see my father. We couldn't get in earlier that day because everybody were visiting and we couldn't find a parking space. My brother went in and out dropping my father's clean clothes .
Donna is doing good also, She hasn't seen my Dad since last week at the hospital. I guess she gotten worn out from driving and doing her erands. In the meantime enough from here and I'll be posting.

WE will be at my sister's for dinner Sunday. I was there today helping and stayed for dinner while my Mother visited my Father along with Donna. My Father is doing okay and but therapy made him tired. Tomorrow they'll bring him into a therapy faculty. It'll be closer than the hospital. This hospital is on the other side of the city, not the one that is near home. Therapy is about 15 min instead an half an hour.
Donna is doing good and feeling tired herself. She must not getting used to getting out and going everyday. She is a hoot! She like to help Mom out. SO, have a Blessed Easter Sunday..

Playing with Picasa3 and blogging in the same place..

Me and my Dad had this program for awhile and I forgot all about it. Picasa3 I heard some people like this than Adobe. I don't know the different except the the professional photographers..lol What program am I using? It called Picasa3 and there's so much you can do with it. I am impressed. I did a collaged with these two photos, the first one and the sesond one. Then I went into collage

mode and choose the collage that I want. I picked multiple.The third photos is the multiple collage. The photos were taken at Pesque Isle off of Lake Erie in Erie Pa. I love the picnic photo that I took.. I am so happy how it turned out.. Another reason I like about Picasa that you can do the blog in the program when I upload my photos. I have no Idea either. It's an experiment just learning as I go along. Its does have the same posting effect as you do on line. I heard that someone didn't like how blogger won't put your photo in or if you use their photo mode it'll take longer or if you use photobucket, you got to upload there and take the code and copy and paste to your blog. That is time consuming too!! This program just do it all in one place..Yes, you can load your camera to this and upload to your Picasa album too.. Just thought I let you know what you can do with it..
We're off to see my Father this afternoon. D, and my Mom and of course me too.. So, off to go get ready and have a good day..
