just for shits 'n giggles...

I haven't time for much. Haven't been here for ages. I see Blogland is busy with a lot of new characters...and I do mean characters although I don't see many blog comments.

I guess I can consider myself a 'has-been' now as I only pass through here now 'n then. I was such a hardhead to take so long to learn that it's useless to beat a dead horse.

Anyway, life is busy. I'm having my usual yearly garage sale; the only difference is my Sis moved and donated a ton of stuff to the cause. My daughter is downsizing so I got stuff from her, too. I already had a shitload of my own stuff. This has been the hardest sale for me to set up and more work than I figured on. I am tired, tired, TIRED! The sale starts tomorrow thru Saturday. If I have a lot of stuff left, I'll run it again next weekend then pack it up, call the Salvation Army to pick it up THEN...

I am done FOREVER with garage sales! I know, I know...I've said that before but this time is different. For one thing, I'm a year older and even though this sale is bigger, I'm not gettin' any younger and I'm sick to death of doing this year after year.

Another thing that makes this year harder is, a couple days ago, my nephew was in a horrible accident. He is in critical condition with horrific injuries. The doctors say if he survives, he will have a really long haul, probably a year and a half or more of recuperation. His face and head suffered the worst trauma. If he can get past the swelling of his brain, he should have a fighting chance. He hears what is said and understands by lifting his hand and nodding slightly. His chest took a lot of the impact with broken ribs but the worst is a 4 inch aneurysm on his heart.

I just wanted to share this with those few friends who may still be on here. Please...don't share with me negative comments predicting a dire outcome for him. I already know the worst case scenarios and I don't want to hear it.

It's extra hard for my nephew's family because his dad is having open heart surgery Friday (unless he refuses under the circumstances). His carotid arteries, veins in his legs and heart are clogged and he also has an aneurysm on his heart. His chances of surviving surgery are not good but no chance if he doesn't.

So life in my neck of the woods right now is tedious to say the least.

Now my time is getting shorter to get my work done and finish up the details on the sale so I'm outta here. Hope this finds y'all well...

Be happy, be safe 'n keep smilin'....

Damn, Softie I sent the email before you posted the blog! I so sorry to hear about all the health problems in the family! I'll send one up to the big guy for them and you!

I've been keeping your nephew in my thoughts since last night. If he's anything like you...he will pull through. You said yourself, you're hardheaded. If your nephew has as much of that spunk and spirit in him as you have, and with everyone sending prayers and positive thoughts, he will pull through. Stay positive.

And I wish you much success on your yard sale....hopefully there will be nothing left for the Salvation Army to pick up.

As for here...there are new people posting...just not the participation there used to be. Shame, used to be quite lively here. I agree it wasn't all fun, but, there was some fun times here.

I am sorry to hear that and pray for the best outcome

I am so sorry to hear about the health problems in your family, Doctors can work wonders these days so I am hoping they are getting the best care possible in the hospital. I know what you mean about garage and yard sales. They are a pain to deal with. I don't do them anymore, Anything I want to sell I just throw on Ebay or take it down to the local flea market for the day,

Softie I,m sorry for all the suffering times you & your family are going through. I hope for better circumstances for you & yours. FB
