” WELL I NEVER ! “
” what a swell party this is ! “
HI GUYS !!!
did you ever see that movie classic from the first picture above?
it’s a musical. ‘ high society ‘ starring grace kelley ~ bing crosby ~ and frank sinatra.
and those words are actually lyrics from a great song in it.
if you haven’t seen it you might check it out and watch it on a cosy day.
with popcorn of course!
i’m not an overly fond fan of most musicals . . . but this one is worth it!
it’s uplifting and comical and beautifully made. and in heavenly color.
the music just fills your soul. at least it does mine.
the beloved louie armstrong plays in it as well.
why i used it for this post ?
because of all that has happened . . .
culminating in a dead (or what i thought was dead!) computer . . .
that died on me soon after halloween . . .
thanks to the marine fixing it for me yesterday . . .
it feels like i’m at a swell party sitting here!
amazing how cut off i feel now when this thing goes down.
i have missed all of you so much!
my name is tammy.
and apparently i am addicted to this computer and blogs.
that’s what i would have to stand up in a computer addict meeting and say.
in the meantime
i have been concentrating on getting well and strong again. and it’s working!
i say i’ve been concentrating on it.
that’s not true.
i have simply FINALLY just relaxed and am trying to ‘go with the flow’.
it’s pointless to do otherwise.
i have learned from all of this ~ that all happens as it will ~ in its own good time.
you cannot rush it. and actually rushing it sometimes sets you back.
once when the marine and i were talking . . .
i want to thank you right here for ALL the wonderful comments you made for him.
he would be totally embarrassed by them.
he is not an accolades kind of guy. so i will say it for him. thank you.
now . . .
he said to me once . . .
“tam. be like a deer in the forest.
they don’t rush around thinking . . . ‘what’s wrong? oh no. i’m going to die.’
‘why am i in such pain?’ ‘what am i going to do?’
they simply lie down. they move when they can.
they get quiet. they rest. they heal. or they don’t.
their energy is conserved for getting well.”
wise simple words from my mountain~man marine.
i try to think of myself as that deer.
and it helps!
it does old bean.
just to see the glory of THIS.
to feel the crisp air.
to share a beer on the terrace of our favorite restaurant on a warm enough day.
the joys of simply living.
it takes so little.
on strong days lately i have made it a mission to clean out my only closet!
amazing how GOOD that makes you feel!
it’s all organized now.
in such a tiny wren house you have to keep it to a minimum.
i have only what i use and need in there. and it feels so good.
i kept going to it yesterday and opening the sliding doors! they glide easily.
i looked at the few clear plastic boxes and my few hanging clothes.
uh oh. closet pride.
and you know what they say old bean . . .
pride goeth before a fall.
speaking of a different kind of fall . . .
i hope your autumn days are glorious now.
that all is right in your world.
that you have friends like i do right here
that never let you forget how much you’re loved.
as a matter of fact . . .
this is a mutual admiration society here at the peanut!
no membership card is necessary.
we all just love each other.
even the wonderful scruffy old pirate types.
just stop by when you need a fix of caring and sharing.
not apologizing for being the polly~girl here.
the world can never have enough love.
til soon old bean.
