Dad, My Handy Man

At some point I will take the time and look for some new exterior shutters for the place. Each time my parents come over my father points out what a difference a pair of exterior shutters would make for the front of the house. He has even offered to look around for and with me when I’m ready to commit, so that would be cool.

My father has always been handy around the house and the yard, so any time he wants to give me a hand around the place, I’m all for it!

Red Skelton

Red Skelton–Patriot and Prophet

Red Skelton was one of the greatest comedians of his time. I used to watch his television show as a kid. He was a great entertainer, but was much more a Christian and a gentleman.

Watch this clip from one of his TV shows from 1969.  He always closed his show with something of inspiration. He was a great role model.

Hope you enjoy this, because he was a “prophet before his time”! This is one of the most touching and patriotic items I have seen in a long time. This one will touch your heart! Enjoy and remember. Help spread this important message:

Red Skelton–from his television show in 1969 WOW! Just think, he said this on his television show in 1969 and really had no clue it would ever come about. SAD, isn’t it? What a wonderful and worthwhile clip to watch and share with all your friends and acquaintances!


TGIF, what is there left to say. It’s been a long week and I’m looking forward to the week end, although I’ll be spending a good amount of it outside trying to take care of the yard. It is beginning to grow like crazy and I need to keep it from getting out of control to where I will most likely just throw my hands up in the air and be done with it all. That would suck considering how much time and energy I put into the planting, weeding, clearing, feeding, raking and of course the watering that I have done all on my own this year.

Lawn Care

Dirty Water

I can’t stand the way that my water looks, smells and tastes. After I take my daily bath and let the water run out and drain there is a lot of black grainy junk left in the tub. Looks like I’m going to need to contact a water service company. I’ve been needing to find a replacement for my Water Heater Indianapolis, that might help with some of the problems as well.

Funny how sometimes when I think of dirty water, the song Dirty Water, by The Standells, starts playing in my head. I think this song was a hit in the mid 1960s. My mother is always listening to the Oldies radio station (it plays music from the 50′ and the 60’s,) so I have been exposed to a lot of different types of music throughout the years.

My father was totally into Country Music, I was never a big fan of it but always enjoyed being around my Dad so I kinda got used to it but it’s not real high up on my list of favorite music.

Personally I like a lot of the music from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s. I was that I had been around when Disco dancing was all the rage. I know a lot of people hate on Disco, but to me it always provides me with a good consistent beat!

The Allure of The Treasurer Chests

I have decided that I would like to redo my master bedroom. It really isn’t what I had in mind when I moved out on my own when I got divorced years back. I love the look of wood, always have. I have to have my home in earth toned colors and you can’t get much earthy than good old fashioned wood.

My mother has the nicest storage chests that where handed down to her and one day will come to me, so I need to take that into consideration when planning my bedroom decor. These are the most marvelous cedar chests that I’ve ever laid my eyes on. My great grandfather made them way back and have always been handled with love and care where ever they have landed through out the years.

There is something about the look of wooden chests, maybe it’s the pirate in me that attracts them to be, never really thought of that before! I could certainly use one of their nice and bountiful treasure chests right about now since I’ve been spending a bit of time online looking at some new ideas for the make up and I’ve seen the prices, ouch…………….
