Carry is the Prompt for Today

The weaklings at the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to think of creating works of art representing the word “Carry“/

Music First

Carry On My Wayward Son by the music group Kansas.

Try to Lug Your Canoe Across Land

That is how the Native American Indians used to carry their possessions from place to place.  Tribes relocated following food sources back in the old days.  My Great Grandmother passed away long before I was born.  She may have had to deal with these life experiences in her time.  Unfortunately, I truly doubt she did because she was confined on a federal reservation for her “kind”.  Talk about discrimination!

If you wish to contact me, all you are required to do is fill out the simple form located below:

All comments will be read by me, personally!

Never got to engage in a conversation with her

Wish I had been able to meet her!  Grandpa says I think just like she did.  We could have carried on for hours about the disrespect young people show their elders today!  Do you have any ancestors you wish you could have met?

Live my life carrying guilt about the problems I have caused my family due to my crappy health problems.  On the positive side, at least I no longer have to transport heavy bales of hay!

 

Please Help Fight Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.

Confused Is Prompt For Day

The perplexed people at the Daily Post group of Word Press actually managed to make a clear choice for the prompt of the day of the word “Confused” for our art works to be based on.

Am Always Bewildered Lately

Have absolutely no idea how I get myself into these muddled messes.  Went with bright and clear shining eyes into asking the man I ended up marrying to marry me.  He turned around and dashed my dreams of happiness with him against the cave walls in the nearest park.  Flat out told me NO!  He wasn’t ready, yet.

Did your first marriage proposal go as you planned?

We had already picked out our wedding rings.  Talk about confusion.  Either he liked me or not, he was the man I wanted to live the rest of my life with!  I was attending college at the time, we had been sharing an apartment together for months to try to reduce costs.  Was sharing a bed with a guy who had told me he was not interested in marrying me.  A few days more ticked by, with me studying for a physics exam.  The actual day of the test, he handed me my engagement ring asking me to marry him!  Needless to say I failed the examination.  Ended up having to retake the class in the next semester.

If you would like to contact me, you simply HAVE to fill out the form below:

All responses will be read carefully!

We have been married for well over 20 years now.  Have lived in different states of the United States of America.  Have had our phenomenal periods and our devastating atrocious nightmares.  Who doesn’t go through this type of life?

Complicated is the Prompt for the Day

The apparent members of the Brain Trust located at the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to create works of art based on the concept of “Complicated” for today.

Life Is Complicated Today

Just take a look at the current political situation with the United States of America’s up coming elections.  The one running in the Democratic Party is a bold faced liar, that I wouldn’t trust a single clipped penny!  The gentleman running in the Republican Group talks off the cuff, ignoring what his speech writers have prepared for him to say.  I like the fact he speaks how he feels, but offending foreign countries may not be the smart way to proceed.

If you would like to voice your opinion on this subject, just drop me a line by filling out the form below:

All responses will be read by me personally!

Am extremely glad we have no children by choice.  Would not want them to be exposed to the school systems that are in operation for our country’s future generations!  How much longer will the American version of the English language be what is spoken here?  Do you still believe American kids should be taught English?

Who knows where the the future will lead us?  Maybe years down the road, human life will be wiped from the Earth by our own stupidity!  Too many bombs and wars wiping the planet free of all living creatures.  Could happen if we don’t change our ways.

Reach is the Prompt for the Day

The people who must be blessed with height chose the word “Reach” for today’s prompt for us to create various works of art based on.

Everything is Out of My Physical Reach

Comes from being born short.  Managed to obtain my dream of being a successful network engineer, but had to give that position up due to not being able to chase wiring anymore, because a disease confined me to a wheelchair.

Miss telling data both where to go and how to get there!  Do Not Piss Off the engineer in charge of your network, or your traffic might be routed the slowest way posshttp://saintpblogging.com/wp/reach-is-the-prompt-for-the-day/ible.  Yeah the traffic will still arrive, just a few seconds later!  If they are really ticked off, it might end up in the “bit bucket” other wise known as file 13 or trash.

All responses will be read by me personally.  Thank you for your comments!

Dreamed of being an astronaut while I was little

Didn’t find out there was a height requirement until I left for college.  There was absolutely no way I could ever reach that goal.  Needed to be several inches taller.  So that was completely out of my reach!  Changed my major to computer science and learned all about programming (which is really boring) and working with network traffic.  Preferred that side of the science!

What was your dream when you were little?

Obsessed is the Prompt of the Day

The singly driven people of the Daily Post would like our art to be based on the word “Obsessed” for today.

What has Me Obsessed?

Memories of the mountains in Colorado, where we used to live.  That and the two cats we had adopted from a humane society while in the Chicago-metro area.  Took both animals along with us for our adventures in CO.  Miss those two so much it hurts!  Their spirits have followed us through many different states of this country.

My husband says he still sees both of the animals.  I only see the one I picked out to be adopted.  That one comes around whenever I am feeling sick or really sad.  Wish I could convince him to beat up the cat we adopted after he passed away, since it likes to bite and claw me!

If you have any suggestions on how to keep the cat from using me as his personal chew toy, All you need to do is fill out the form below:

All suggestions will be read by me personally.  Thank you for your helpful advice!

Have you ever felt possessed and did something you shouldn’t have done?

“Maybe” is the Prompt for the Day

The indecisive humans at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose the word “Maybe” to be the prompt for the day.

Do You Mean Yes or No?

You either agree or disagree.  Make a stand for once by sticking to your decision.  The world will respect you more for being able to make your mind up!

How do you feel around people who can’t make up their own minds?

Growing up I always knew right where my goals where.  That made it a lot easier to make a decision!  Now that I seem to be literally losing my mind due to health issues, I have trouble making good decisions in life.

Fortunately, I married a wonderful man years ago that has stuck with me through both the good times and the bad times.  Yeah we argue a lot, but who doesn’t enjoy a good argument?  There was no debate team in the school where I grew up, or I would have been their star competitor!  I’d argue with a fence post, if it actually had the ability to speak.  Get that tendency from my Grandfather.  So you could say I inherited it naturally.

Prompt for the Day: “Joke”

The comic people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Joke” for our daily prompt.

All Antics Aside

Actually got my first major networking job, by being able to tell a joke!  Was nervous as all get out being surrounded by a group of older males, but since I was to be the first female on the team I needed to break the ice that had seemed to form in the conference room.  So I told them a dirty joke completely straight faced.  Learned to play poker while involved in a musical in junior high school, so put my poker face to use!  The joke is mild by today’s standards, it was back in 1997 after all.

My joke did not involve any thing off limits even today!  Spoke of two whales swimming in the ocean who were harassing fishing boats.  One made the comment that it agreed to blow the boats over, but never agreed to swallow the fishermen.

What is your personal opinion on jokes?

Loved working with that great company both in the Chicago metro area and then in the Denver area.  Unfortunately the company was bought out by the huge company Sprint during my first year with the company.  Sprint basically ended up killing off our culture of working in teams.  Sprint-Paranet went under back around 2002.  Fortunately, I resigned before they went under!

Prompt for the Day: “Luxury”

The wasteful people at the Daily Press division of Word Press want us to focus our works of art on the idea of “Luxury” for today.

Generic Products Work Better!

Generic purchases means you are not paying for the expense of a brand.

  1. For some strange reason, the off label medicines tend to actually work better than the name brand drugs do!
  2. Clothing wise. as long as you do not purchase from a crappy chain store, the no-name items last longer than the top price ones’ lifespan.
  3. Food items are the same way.  I prefer the Wal-mart brand of pop called Mountain Lightning.  The name brand of Mountain Dew, which it is made to replicate, seems to have less of a caffeine kick in it.
  4. Motor cycles appear to be similar.  Why over pay for a Harley-Davidson, when a similar vehicle will be more reliable?

Are you a person that insists on only having name brand items in their life?

Have pretty well grown up on generic products.  When I was in high school, preferred Nike’s, because their shoe style was made for narrower feet.  These days, with the obesity problems in America everyone needs wide width.  Getting narrower shoes is just about impossible!

Prompt for the Day: “Paint”

The boring people at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose what they were waiting to dry “Paint” as the word for us to create our works of art on today.

Watching Paint Dry

Tends to be really life dulling to me!  Not a painter by choice (being color blind causes problems with that form of entertainment).  Remember how difficult the junior high school art class everyone was forced to endure was for me!  The only thing I enjoyed was drawing with pencil using straight edges for prospective drawings.  Face it, even back then I had trouble with shaky hands screwing up my work!

Yeah, I am a boring person.  Have never resorted to observing paint as it tries to set up!  Am not THAT bad, at least.

If you would like to get in contact with me, all you have to do is fill out the form below:

All responses will be answered by me!

Generally, I type my blog (since my handwriting is illegible these days) to post on the internet, read books, aggravate the cat we adopted from the humane society, and perform what house hold chores that I can do successfully.  Watching T.V. tends to make me brain dead, so I avoid it in all cases!

What do you do to alleviate boredom?

Prompt for the Day: “Stubborn”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press must really know me well, because they chose the word “Stubborn” for us to create works of art representing the word itself.

It Comes Naturally to Me!

Take after my mom’s father.  He was too stubborn to go peacefully when he had problems breathing due to emphysema.  Could have been from his career as an sailor with the U.S. Navy, or from his addiction to cigars, who knows.  He lived through lots of other types of cancer like lung, skin, and others that I forget!

He and my Uncle Jimmy Jones used to have a bet on who would die first.  Unfortunately, (or fortunately) Grandpa won.  Uncle Jimmy had to attend grandpa’s funeral barely able to stand up to visit the casket.  Few years later, Uncle Jimmy Jones passed on.

If you would like to contact me, all you have to do is fill out the form below:

All responses will be read by me!

Have been headstrong ever since I was born.  Would ague with a fence post if it actually had the ability to speak!  Used to drive the teachers in grade school nuts, because I always made sure I had proof of what I was saying on hand to back up my arguments.  Doubt they expected a small child would be that versed in the fine art of arguing!

Do you enjoy a good debate?
