I know. I am behind the times...

   Yes, I know. I am behind the times. I don't have a smartphone. My digital camera is a Kodak with 3.0 pixels. My laptop doesn't have Wi-fi... or sound (it's broken).  Would you believe I listen to music on CDs, you know those things that look like DVD but don't have a picture, only sound. MP3 is just letters and a number to me. Oh and my DVD is not a Blu-Ray either.

Sony Walkman NWZS544PNK

Is it just me or does this remind you of Mickey Mouse?

    I also read books on the go by taking a printed copy with me. My hospital emergency bag contains one or more books, Magazines, puzzle books and crocheting, as well as toiletries and medical records. After all I never know how long I will be there. This last visit was 5 days, and I forgot to pack the book.
   Yes, I know all about the kindles, as everyone from the librarian to the little lady at the hospital gift shop has told me to get one. (I was buying used books to read on my latest stay at the time.) You can't turn on a TV or search the Internet with out knowing that the new Kindle Fire is coming out November 15th.

New Amazon Kindle Fire

   Bloggers and newspaper columnists are all touting the usefulness of all the new technology. Even the owner of the tire store, who hates computers couldn't believe I didn't have a smart phone. He proceed to tell me all the wonderful things his phone could do and why I really needed to get one.

Samsung Galaxy S II 4G Android Phone (AT&T)

   So what is the hold up, am I just afraid of all the new stuff?

   Heck no. I would love to have the latest and greatest. After all I am one of the few people who bought a RCA disk player when they first came out. Any one remember those things? The movie came on disk the size of vinyl record albums.

   The problem is all this stuff cost money and I tend to spend money on things I want... like electricity, phone service, gas, food. And  a couple of things I don't want like doctor's visits and prescriptions.

   So even though I would love an Ipad or Kindle I am just going to keep on toting my big bag with all the stuff in it back and forth to doctor's and hospitals. Probably more often now according to the Neurosurgeon. But just think I am building my muscles in my arms, while I am waiting to win the lottery.

   So am I the only one without all the new gadgets or does it just seem that way?

***By the way I found all the above items on Amazon.

Happy Halloween...

Happy Halloween!!!!

Drawing by Pamela Jo
Do you know the origins of Halloween?

Well according to, it was a Celtic holiday. Check it out.

Ancient Origins of Halloween

Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter.

To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other's fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.

The above article is from The history channel website at 
The also have articles of Famous American the ones that haunt the USS Constitution. The history of the Irish folktale about a man named "Stingy Jack" and lots of other fascinating things.

Since I live out in the woods and don't get trick or treaters, we will be spending our halloween watching monster movies.

How are you out in blogland going to spend yours?  Let me know in the comment section. While your there see if you can guess who my pumpkins are...hint 2 of them will really crack you up and the other one could solve problem of who the mischief makers are.

The Weather and Zombies...

   I went to the Weather Channel to check out the 10 day forecast, but I learned more than what clothes I need for the week. Being that it is October and a lot of us have Zombies on our minds I thought I would pass along these links as a public service. (well, having Zombies on our minds is  better than eating our minds, right**** Sorry I had too.)

   The people at the Weather Channel website,, in their ever increasing attempt to keep us informed, has a interview with Dr. Dale Dixon of the CDD.

   What is the CDD you ask. The CDD is the Center for Disease Development. The place for answers about post-apocalyptic  zombies. Have you ever thought about how weather affects zombies? Do they know to come in out of a Thunderstorm? Would they hid from a Tornado? Can they swim? Since they are no longer warm blooded, does the cold still affect them?

   Find the answers to these questions and more. How you ask...why clicking this link .

   So are you ready. Do you have your Zombie preparedness kit ready? Do you even know what you need for the kit?

   This is stright from the CDC web site...

   So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen? First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house. This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored). Below are a few items you should include in your kit, for a full list visit the CDC Emergency page.

*Water (1 gallon per person per day)
*Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
*Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
*Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
*Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
*Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
*Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
*First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to
  treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)

AHHH!!! My Muses are at war....

   Sorry I haven't posted, but it seems my Muses are at war with each other. It's not that they aren't giving me any ideas. They are... lots of them....all at once.

   Before I get a chance to write one down completely, another gets thrown at me. Everyone wants to be first. They are throwing their ideas so fast a furious that all I get is a great big wall of words that don't make any sense.

   There was something about a book, a party, rain, dogs, crocheting...I even think Dracula was in there somewhere.

   See what happens when you take time off. Now if I can just get them to take turns, I will be set for a while.

   HEY...What did I say about shoving. Get back in line...NO single file....

  This may take a while. Wish me luck...

I wonder if he ever had this problem?

No Cartoons...I Don't want to grow up...

   If growing up means you have to give away your love for cartoons, games and fun, especially CARTOONS....Well as the Sopranos would say forgetaboutit.

   I mean were in the world would we be without imagination, dreams and fun.  **shudder** I wouldn't even want to think about it. It is truly the stuff of nightmares.

    Wait... even nightmares require imagination...Don't they???

   Let's ask Steven King the 'King of nightmares'. I know his books have given me a lot of them.

   “Hey, Steven, You know about causing nightmares. How do you do it?”
   “Description begins in the writers' imagination, but finishes in the reader's“ Steven King.

   Well I guess we wouldn't even have nightmares in a world without imagination, or at least not the kind of nightmares we like to have. (Is that an oxymoron...)

   I remember as a kid that no matter what the week was like, Saturday morning cartoons could make you forget it and be happy for awhile. Saturday was the only day I liked getting up early. I would even set the alarm so I could get to the television before my brothers did, so I could pick the channel. (yeah, we lived in the stone-age when there was only ONE television in the house.)

  All 3 channels, yes that's right THREE, had cartoons from 7:30 to Noon. Cartoons not live action shows, those were for after school. Then at noon the dad's would take over with the sport shows. Of course there were cartoons during the week, but never 4 hours of them.

   There was an almost endless parade of your favorites. Bugs and Daffy, The Road Runner, Atom Ant,  Aqua Man, Yogi and BooBoo.

   And you can't forget  The Jetsons, The Flintstones,I mean where else could you go from the Stone-age to the the Space-age in one hour.

  Then in later years you had Scooby Doo, Batman, Josie and the Pussycats, Hong Kong Phooey, Dastardly and Muttley, The Smurfs and lot of others.

   I even got to see Pebbles and Bamm Bamm grow up and get their own show.

   What could be better... curled up with a blanket in your favorite spot on the sofa or floor with a cold bowl of cereal, and all the bright colors from the screen the only light to be seen. All was right with your world then.
   Besides how else where you going to decide what you wanted for Christmas and your birthday if you didn't get to see the commercials. Saturday morning was necessary.

   Yes, Saturday morning cartoon may have been the start of the weekend, but “The Wonderful World of Disney” was the weekends last hurrah.

   But that is another post...

Can you find your favorites?
   Heavens to murgatroid...That's a lot of cartoons.

Arizona Slot Canyon Mud

   I found this picture on the National Geographic photo page. Click here to check it out.

   Now I know why young children eat mud. Even I would have to try a taste if I was there. Of course I am a huge Chocoholic.

   Okay I can't stand it... I have got to check out the kitchen for anything chocolate NOW!!!! (Runs to kitchen throws open doors and tosses everything out....) Where did I put that chocolate....

Early Warning...I might be off for awhile...

  Just thought I would give you all a heads up. I am not abandoning the blog world and all my old, as well as new friends. But if I disappear for awhile, I will be back.

   With all the hospital trips (3 for him, 2 for me) in the last couple of months, we are running a little long on expenses. So if I can't convince the our internet provider to give us a little break, they will turn it off before our next payday at the first of the month.

   So if I don't see you around; just know I am missing you all and counting the days until I'm back on.

   Oh yes, does anyone out there have a spell I can cast over the bills to make them disappear, or at least shrink???

   I seem to be flooded with them lately. Thank goodness I learned to swim when I was a younger. Come to think of it a boat might be in order too.

Now where did I put those life-jackets?

And the Winner is....

   Once again we where at our home away from home....the hospital. Since I don't have a wireless tablet or laptop or internet smart phone, I am totally cut off from all my fellow bloggers. Jack keeps saying he wants to get me one, but on a very limited income that is a luxury we can not afford. But we are back now...I hope for quite I have written a short story for you to read. I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know how it is and if I could improve on it. Thank you very much for staying with me through out our up and downs.

And the Winner is....

   They only thought they had outgrown us. That they had left us behind with all the other superstitions. But we were there; just under the surface the whole time. Love and Hate are the two sides of the coin of life. There can never be one with out the other. But we are working to flip the coin to our side once and for all.

   We are the Gods and Goddesses of War.
   We have had many names, some well known, some not. Who has not heard the names Ares, Athena, Mars, and Seth, just to name a few. But our names from Babylonian, Assyrian, Mayan, and Aztec times are all but forgotten. The names of Erra, Ashur, Ah Chuy Kak, and Camaxtli are little known in today's world.

   We have worked tirelessly through out history trying many ways to come on top. But there was always someone there to remind people of the good side of man.

   The God of love has many names himself and many helpers. They are always there thwarting our attempts to rule the world of man.

   We can not win the battle face to face. That lesson has been learned well. So how do we win? There has been many a gathering dedicated to this problem until Ictinike came up with the solution...

   The way to win was to not have to face of the God of love. And how do we do that? By using the cover of love and protection to our advantage. We use the fact that the one God of love is known by many names to many people.

   We make man think he is protecting others from hate and intolerance. Because it may upset and cause anguish to the others; man will then forbid one group of the God of love's helpers from speaking out if another group is present. If no one is allowed to speak of love and acceptance, then the emotions of hate, intolerance, and evil will be able to rule. The coin will flip to our side and bury the other side at last.

   Yes, that is the way we will win the battle. We will rule the world and no one will be any the wiser.

Welcome to my new Followers...

  I would like to take a moment today to welcome all my new followers and fellow campaigners, and tell you a little something about me.

   Everyone who has been following me for a while, know I have a really weird sense of humor. Of course that is the nice way of saying I am off my rocker ... totally loony toons. If you didn't already know that, well I guess I just explained a lot, didn't I.

   All of you new followers... You have been warned.

   My philosophy  life is too short to spend it being serious all the time, (okay, okay for more than 2 seconds) and to get through this life sane...ish you can either laugh or cry. I chose to laugh, because crying makes my nose run and my eyes red. Not a pretty picture.

   I am a Proud Texan, born and raised. I was born many moons ago in San Antonio, the birthplace of the Alamo. (Yeah that Alamo, no, the real one. Not the Hollywood one.)
The Alamo San Antonio, Tx

   I have lived all over Texas: San Antonio, Corpus Christi. Fort Worth, Houston, Katy, Magnolia, Spring Branch, Shepherd and Coldspring. Yep, my family moved around a lot.

   I have been: an office worker, dance instructor, a massage therapist, delivery person, Insurance agent, sales person, Manager. I was even an extra on a movie once. I never did figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up.

   I have fallen out of trees, off boats, been through about 4 hurricanes, too many tornadoes to count, a few wreck (some NOT my fault) and now have a heart condition that has slowed me down.  Yes my Guardian Angel is up for platinum wings. She earned her silver and gold in record time.

   I like music, movies (old and new), books, gardening, sewing, crocheting, drawing (especially cartoons- the laugh thing again), cooking, dogs, astronomy.... long walks in the woods, okay now I sound like I'm looking for a date.

   You probably got the picture. I have a wide variety of interests, which might explain why I hop from subject to subject like a hyper rabbit.


   So now you know a little about me.  Welcome, and come on in...If you dare. You can't say you haven't been warned.

I am a Campaigner...

   I have wanted to join Rachael Harrie of  Rach Writes on her crusades ever since she started them. I just always got there late. That old procrastination thingy again.

   But this time I made it before the deadline. I was so excited I joined a few different groups. I know I am an over achieving procrastinator, what can I say. But everyone has been having so much fun with Rachael that I just had to get in on the action too.

   Her new Campaign starts on August 22, 2011 and goes to October 3rd, 2011. But the deadline to join is August 31st, 2011. Check out The Writers' Platform- Building Campaign here, and join the fun.

Good-bye to my little editor...

   This is a very difficult post to write, because I hate saying good-bye. Especially when I know it is forever.

   We lost our little Foxy to old age on August 13th. She passed away quietly at my feet under my desk. Still keeping up her job as editor to the end.

Ms. Foxy at work.

   Good-bye Ms. Foxy. You are still loved and will be missed.

Rain, Rain, come this way....

   Just in case you haven't guessed by now, I live the Texas, the east Texas Piney Woods to be exact. It is a great area with lots of trees and creeks and wildlife. But what we don't have, at least not this year, is RAIN. We are in the worst drought since they started keeping records in 1895. This has caused the trees, plants, and grasses to dry out. That in turn has caused numerous wild fires. Luckily for us they haven't gotten too close to our house. Though the state has lost about 3.4 million acres to wildfire so far, and they are still happening.

   Since I have to cart water from the well to the garden, I have just about given up on it producing much this year. I am going to put in a fall garden and hope for the best. It is still hurricane season you know. Maybe we will get part of a nice tropical depression. No, I don't want another hurricane. We are still trying to clean up after the last one.

   I was looking on google to see if I could find some good news about the weather. One of the things I did find is Rain Turtles.

Created by Pamela Jo

   According to Wikipedia...

   A rain turtle is a ritual believed to bring about rain, especially in periods of drought. The practice is commonly considered to be of Native American origin. To perform the ceremony, one uses a stick to draw a turtle facing West in the sand or dirt of an area in need of rain. The stick is then driven into the ground so that it remains protruding from the turtle's back. The time required for the action to take effect varies from one account to another, ranging from occurring instantaneously to taking several days.
The practice has become somewhat common with surveyors, hunters, ranchers, gardeners and other people working outdoors, particularly in the Western United States.[1] Some people that work outside and rely on favorable work conditions might draw this, in hopes that it will rain and will get them out of work. Getting caught doing this at a job site might result in the person that drew it to get into trouble.

   Oh and just in case you are wondering, my computer desk faces south, so the above turtle is facing West.  I'm hoping for quick results (I wonder if their is a Rain Rabbit?)

   I had to add this video just so I could remember what rain sounded like.

   I miss rainy weather...

And now I would like to end this post with a simple prayer for some much needed rain...

“God, you send rains in season. It is a season of need in Texas. Send more rain to that parched land and more again across all the thirsty southern states. Find a small and willing cloud sitting bored over some vacant part of the Caribbean, and give it a push toward Houston. Make a Hurricane, perhaps, not strong enough to destroy, but filled with warmed moisture and send it North. We ask you for rain. Let the drought unite many millions to ask you for help. We trust in you. You made the world to need the waters of heaven. You made the world to need the waters of life. You are the source of rain. We ask you. Let it rain. In Jesus name.”

Architecture...What type are you...

   I have been searching the real estate ads again. Still trying to get to the mountains, especially after all this heat. I found these ads, no I can't afford it but I had to look anyway.

   This got me to thinking of the difference between modern and traditional architecture. Most people love one and hate the other. There are also people who have their favorite, but can appreciate them both.  Which one are you?

   Check out the differences....

Morning Alarm Clock...

   I was looking around the web last night and I think I finally found an Alarm that I couldn't possibly sleep through.

   What do you think?

I found this guy in California.

   I think he could get me up in the and the whole county.

Rough couple of weeks...

   Sorry I haven't been posting, but it has been a rough couple of weeks.

   My father passed away on July 5th, and his memorial service was the following Tuesday.
James W. Hampton
Miss you Daddy.

   Then on Wednesday, I had to take Jack (my fiance) to the ER. They intern transferred him to a bigger hospital an hour from our home.  Where he still is undergoing a lot of tests.

   So I have been running from hospital to home to check on things and back again. I'm pretty sure I passed myself at least a couple of times on the road.

   Hopefully. Things will settle back down soon, and I can get back on schedule. Now would be a great time to have an IPad or a Kindle. Then I could stay up on my reading and writing without losing my pen or my book every 5 minutes....

   I try to catch you all up soon. I am getting a lot of material and research done on hospitals, that's for sure.

Sending Out My Love...

     I was reading today about an old school friend, who is losing his brother to cancer. It reminded me that we never really know how long we will have on this earth. No matter what it is never as long as we think it is.

    In away a terrible disease maybe a blessing in disguise. It gives us the kick in the pants we need to talk and make our peace with each other. To tell the person how much we love them and reminisce about all the good times.

   When we lose them suddenly, everything we wanted to say remains unsaid. We wind up carrying around the guilt that we never really found the time for that phone call, to drop that card in the mail or even to email them.

   You know it is so easy to forget to let those you love the most know about it. We find it really easy to say I love that song...I love that book... OMG I loved him/her in that. We find it so easy to express our love for inanimate items, shows, stars, food, animals, you name it we LOVE it.

   But when it comes to those really close to us....we don't say the words. I guess we automatically assume since we know it … they know it.

   But do they?

   Think about it. Do you know for sure what is in the minds of your brother, sister, mother, father, or child? Do you know for sure without a single doubt your husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend loves you? How about the cousin, Aunt, Uncle or Grandparent you haven't seen or spoken with in over a year?

   How about your best friend of all times, the one you argued with the last time you spoke to them? You don't even remember what the argument was about now. Oh, but surely they know you didn't mean it when you said .... But do they really.

   I don't know about you but my ESP is on the fritz. I don't even know what I'm thinking half the time. I also know how easy it is to say the wrong thing and not even realize it. I may not be limber enough to kick like the Radio City Rockettes, but I can get my foot in my mouth without even trying.  

Rockettes Christmas Spectacular at Radio CityImage via Wikipedia

    So I would like to take this time to say to all my family far and wide, and all my friends.


   I think about you often. A lot more often than I let you know, and I am sorry for that. I will try to do better, but life has away of getting in the way. And days have a way of running together. Just remember that if I hurt your feelings or said something you didn't like, I really didn't mean it. It was just foot in mouth disease, and I am sorry. I would never intentionally say anything to hurt you.

   Now if you will excuss me I need to facebook, twitter, email and call some very important people in my life.'s too late to call now but I can at least do the rest.

   How about you?

   And before I forget to all those who are following and reading this blog....


   I just wanted you know that now.

   Oh and for those who may not know who the Radio City Rockettes are, check this out....

What a View...#fridayflash

What a View...

   What a view. I can see for miles from up here. I have never really appreciated this view, never really looked at it. I was always too busy to take the time. It's only by accident that I am enjoying it now.

   I can see the deep navigation channel from here.  The water changes from the light blue of the shallows to a deep navy. Those small islands look like bright green paint spatters.

   Over there you can see the chemical storage tanks. Hey some of them do they do have floating roofs, would you look at that.

   In this direction you can see the skyline of downtown. Boy that sure has grown since I first moved here. Just look at all that traffic. I sure am glad I don't have to drive in that.

   I always knew there were a lot of ships on these waterways, but I never realized the variety. The big cargo ships, loaded with shipping boxes that look like a child's building blocks. The flat barges with everything from machinery to piles of ore or dirt or what ever that is. Boy would my kids like to climb those hills.

   There goes a tour boat. Man they do they keep that thing clean, the sun reflecting off that white can blind you. I can barely make out all the people waving at me. Might as well wave back, Hi.

   And of course, all the tug boats are running around trying to heard everything in their way. Kinda like that new blue heeler puppy we got that herds everything with legs no matter what the size.

   There's the Coast guard cutters. The authority of the waves. I have a lot of respect for those men and women. They are out there everyday risking their lives and limbs to keep us safe.

   Ah, here comes the fire boat. Would you look at those water guns. Man I would love to get my hands on one of those. I could think of a couple of people I would like to soak. Looks like they got a big latter for rescues too.

   Yeah the view up here is great. But, since I had 4 cups of coffee this morning I sure hope they hurry and get me untangled from this damn crane.

Happy Birthday ME...

   No it is NOT my birthday. It is my baby sisters. I will be nice and not say which birthday it is...She knows where I live and can out run me.

   When she was born, my mother told me and my brothers we would have to help her learn to spell her name. So when we called her we would spell it out. That quickly got shortened to just the first to letters, and she became M.E.

   Well for my baby brother's birthday I threw a virtual


Here is the cake. Go ahead and blow out the candles....

Have a glass of wine....

   I would like to wish all the Dads of the world a Happy Father's Day. I am not sure if it is celibrated around the world or on the same day, but it doesn't matter. The Fathers of the world deserve praise everyday of the year. With out you we would not be here.

   I would like to wish an extra special Happy Father's Day to all the Daddies out there, after all it takes someone special to be a Daddy.

   A Daddy is the person who raises you to be who you are, even if he isn't you biological father. He wipes your tears, teaches you to ride a bike, how to fish, and how to drive (though I will never know how he could hold his breath that long).

   It's your Daddy who chases away the monster's under your bed and out of the closet. Daddy is the one to squash the big icky bug that chased you. He is the one who makes the best hamburgers and bar-b-q.

   He is also the one who taught you right from wrong, even when it hurt him as much as you. He is the one you never wanted to disappoint. The one you want to live up to.

   Yes, just about every man can be a Father, but there are a special few who can be a Daddy.
