5 HORSES--MY WIFE'S INDIAN NAME



5 HORSES--MY WIFE'S INDIAN NAME


This is too beautiful not to share!
Five Horses Is Her Name
This is mythical and deep.
Truly beautiful


I asked an American Indian what my wife's name, meant literally.
He replied, "She is called Five Horses".



I thought that was beautiful, and being from Florida I asked what the Literal translation meant in "Seminole"

HE REPLIED:

I LOVE YOU ALL, AND IF I'M STILL ALIVE WILL POST AGAIN TOMORROW!

YOU HAUNT MY SOUL @ HOOTIN-ANNI'S

COURTESY OF HOOTIN' ANNI

 YOU HAUNT MY SOUL OVER @ HOOTIN-ANNI'S



 FULL MOON'S, WITCHES, BLACK CATS AND CAULDRONS ARE THE STAPLE OF HALLOWEEN.

BUT WHAT TRULY HAUNTS MY SOUL ARE ALL THE ONES I HAVE STOLEN BY TAKING PICTURES OF ABORIGINAL TRIBES-PEOPLE. FOR THEY ARE FOREVER TRAPPED INSIDE MY CAMERA....

OR ARE THEY!
 PICTURED BELOW IS THE EMBODIMENT OF THE EVIL FOR SOME!

THE SERPENT THAT HAS VIED FOR OUR SOULS SINCE THE FIG LEAF DEBACLE IN THE GARDEN! WAS THAT THE FIRST HALLOWEEN COSTUME?

THEY BOTH WENT AS THE SAME THING--SINNER'S--NOT VERY ORIGINAL--WAIT, MAYBE IT WAS..


THAT IS TRULY WHERE THE FIGHT LAY....YES?  INSIDE EACH OF US, WHERE OUR OWN DEMONS FROLIC !

 I HAVE BLOOD PROTECTING ME FOR ALL ETERNITY! INTERESTING THAT A SACRIFICE WAS MADE FOR ME. I CHOOSE CHRIST AND CHRIST CRUCIFIED AS MY SALVATION- FOR MY SPIRIT--MIND, BODY AND SOUL/! THAT'S JUST MY PERSONAL CHOICE........NOT PREACHING HERE--I PROMISE! WELL, MAYBE A LITTLE, HOWEVER I RESPECT ALL CHOICES!

JUST QUESTIONS FOR THOUGHT!

WHAT HAUNTS YOU IF ANYTHING?
DO YOU EVEN BELIEVE WE HAVE A SOUL/SPIRIT TO SAVE?
HAVE YOU NOTICED THE INCREASE IN PARANORMAL SHOWS OVER THE LAST 5 YEARS? JUST A FAD???




REGARDLESS:  I ALWAYS HAVE THE 

EVER VIGILANT

CHEETO-HEAD TO WATCH MY BACK!!!!
HA!!!!!      EXTRA VIGILANT MY BUTT! 
LOVE YOU ALL, AND HAVE A SAFE HALLOWEEN!

STATE FAIR ACCIDENT



STATE FAIR ACCIDENT

 I mentioned earlier our State Fair opened up for its 10 day run. This almost immediately turns on an Arctic blast like magic. 

IT was almost 90 today with two major storms converging on us!

On opening day we had a step off one of the rides fall and hit the metal side of another ride, sending shrapnel flying. Thank God only 10 people were hit, and none of the injuries were serious.

My riding rides days are well past their prime, and with no chillins', I haven't had a reason to ride any for a long time. A trip down out local Interstate and around town with the Cell phone users & Text messenger's is enough.
This does remind me of a tragic story that happened in High School. I had an acquaintance, who was a beautiful girl in Spirit if not in looks at that time. We had our clicks and groups as most do from the 9th and 10th grade on.  Needless to say she wasn't in it. She desperately wanted to ride the Ferris wheel, but with her group of friends she could get no takers! 

And I as the Quarterback and BMOC was the obvious choice right? (Please read on--it truly isn't about me.)

She recognized me and approached me and all the while I was saying (praying*) NO--LET IT NOT BE ME! But it was....and to my horror she asked me if I would ride the Ferris wheel with her. (You had to have two to ride) and it was a relatively NEW RIDE at that time in history.

In front of all my COOL friends, I said;  (and it wasn't until15 or so years later I KNEW WHY), *(I didn't consider myself a Christian at that time-we were all exposed to Church like you are in a small town)

NOW I KNOW WHY IT WAS IMPORTANT TO OBEY THAT SMALL STILL VOICE, THAT GUT FEELING- THAT INTUITION--WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, THAT COMES FROM SOMEWHERE DEEP INSIDE..OR MAYBE FROM THE OUTSIDE....I DON'T KNOW....
"Yes Julie, I'd love to!" I HEARD MYSELF SAYING.

I try to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and I wish I could say it was because I was Chivalrous, or that I didn't care what my peers' thought--(ALTHOUGH I REALLY DIDN'T). I wish I could say it was because I wanted to somehow make her feel better about herself, or that I was REALLY THAT COOL or that I was setting a good example, or 1 of 1,000,00 other virtuous reasons. But truthfully, I wasn't so self confident or vain as to feel like she was asking me for that reason. She just needed a partner and several had already turned her down.

I didn't want to ride with her because of FEAR!

My own Fear of a NEW RIDE and a Slight Fear of THAT Height! 
cue: ree ree ree ree ahh ahh ahh ahhh Fri 13th or any classsic horror movie Music!


IT WAS THE DOUBLE FERRIS WHEEL--A NEW RIDE, 
AT OUR LITTLE TOWN FAIR!


 THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE POINT OF THE STORY: WE RODE, WE LAUGHED, WE HAD A BLAST AND AT THE END OF THE RIDE 

WE HUGGED !!


A TRULY  JOYOUS, FRIENDLY, I had a blast - THANK YOU!- HAPPY HUG!!!! 



ARRIVING AT SCHOOL THE FOLLOWING MONDAY I KNEW IMMEDIATELY SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT. THERE WERE GROUPS OF STUDENTS HUDDLING TOGETHER, SOME GIRLS WERE CRYING, OTHERS HUGGING EACH OTHER...AND THIS WAS IN THE PARKING LOT BEFORE CLASS.

WHEN I ARRIVED AT MY USUAL GROUP- I WAS ASKED, "DID YOU HEAR WHAT HAPPENED?" THE LOOK ON MY FACE MADE IT OBVIOUS THAT I HADN'T.

 THE DAY I HAD RIDDEN WITH JULIE ON THE DOUBLE FERRIS WHEEL WAS SATURDAY.

THE DAY BEFORE SCHOOL THAT MONDAY, ON SUNDAY, LATE IN THE EVENING
SHE HAD BEEN STRUCK AND KILLED BY A CAR WHILE CROSSING A VERY BUSY HIGHWAY BY THE MOBILE HOME PARK WHERE SHE LIVED. 

THIS WAS PRE- IM, FACE BOOK,  INSTANT MESSAGE, INSTANT KNOWLEDGE ABOUT ANYTHING.

It didn't even have time to make the Monday morning paper--not that we kids would have ever read it! 

I WAS SHOCKED AND IN SHOCK! SOMEONE I HAD JUST SHARED SOMETHING SO FUN WITH WAS NOW DEAD. I HAD HUGGED HER SATURDAY NIGHT, AND WOULD NEVER HAD DONE SO IN A MILLION YEARS, PROBABLY BECAUSE OUR PATHS WOULD JUST NOT HAVE INTERSECTED THAT WAY! 

BUT GOD HAD OTHER PLANS!

I RECENTLY PULLED OUT MY ANNUALS AS I RECONNECTED WITH HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS, AND WE HAVE OUR 40TH COMING UP THIS MAY.


I NOW MAKE IT A POINT TO LOOK AT THAT PAGE OF DEDICATED TO THE TWO WE LOST THAT YEAR!

ALL OF THE WHAT IF'S FLOOD INTO MY MIND EVERY TIME I THINK OF JULIE: 

WHAT IF: I HAD SAID NO...WHAT IF, WHAT IF, WHAT IF.....ETC, TC, ETC, 

BUT GOD HAS USED THAT SPECIFIC EXAMPLE AND I HAVE APPLIED IN MY LIFE EXPERIENCES' MULTIPLE TIMES SINCE.


I MISS YOU JULIE PLETCHER!!!  THANKS FOR THE RIDE, THE LAUGHTER, THE FEELING YOU GAVE ME!!!! THAT SPECIAL LAST HUG AND THE LIFE LESSON!

CAN YOU THINK OF SOMEONE THIS WEEK, TOMORROW, OR WHENEVER YOU MIGHT NEED TO HUG?

YOU CAN HUG WITH A LETTER,
A NOTE,

A PHONE CALL,

A BLOG......

  YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN A LAST CHANCE MAY SLIP THROUGH YOUR ARMS!


I LOVE YOU ALL!

HUGS! BUT HOPEFULLY NOT FOR THE LAST TIME!

THE BEST HOLOWEENY COSTUME EVER!



THE BEST HOLOWEENY COSTUME EVER!
NOT FOR KIDS!

THAT GIRL IS FAST WITH HER MACE!!!!!





1ST TIME HUNT WITH HUSBAND!


Wife's First Hunt
 
My sweet husband invited me to go hunting with him this year.
I couldn't believe it the first time ever!

I never thought he'd be willing to share his 'guy time' with me.
Being the thoughtful man that he is, he even gave me an opening day present.
He calls it 'The First Timers Lucky Hat'.
I'm so fortunate to be married to him.
I have attached a picture of me in my lucky hat
 
   



LOVE YOU ALL

I FAILED A STRESS TEST---HOW DO YOU STUDY FOR THOSE THINGS????

I FAILED A STRESS TEST---HOW DO YOU STUDY FOR THOSE THINGS????
MY STRESS TEST WAS WORSE THAN THE ONE I HAD LAST YEAR. AT LEAST I HAVE AN ANSWER TO THE INCREASED SYMPTOMS; CHEST PAIN, SHORTNESS OF BREATH AND DECREASED ABILITY TO WALK AS FAR. HOWEVER IT WILL DEFINITELY HELP WITH THE DISABILITY DETERMINATION!

I'M NOT GOING TO DIE ANY SOONER!!  OR LATER; THAN I'M SUPPOSED TO. THANK THE LORD I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE THE OPEN HEART SURGERY. THERE IS NO INCREASED LONGEVITY FOR A 1 VESSEL BYPASS, AND THE RISK FAR OUTWEIGH ANY BENEFITS.  THERE IS NO WAY TO RE-STENT IT EITHER, AS IT IS TOTALLY OCCLUDED. SO I'LL GET BY ON TWO MAIN HEART VESSELS AND THE COLLATERAL VESSELS IT' S PRODUCING AND JUST DEAL WITH THE SYMPTOMS.

IT IS BASICALLY JUST A PAIN TYPE THING (ANGINA) AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN DECREASE THAT WITH MEDICATION. A LARGER PART OF MY HEART IS DOING W/O AS MUCH OXYGEN AS IT NEEDS, BUT IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO CAUSE MUSCLE DAMAGE OR DEATH TO THE MUSCLE- (HEART ATTACK). 

ALL IN ALL- I WILL TAKE THIS DIAGNOSIS OVER THE ALTERNATIVE!!! DEATH!

I CAN AND WILL STILL BLOG AND TAKE PICS OUT THE WAZOO! 
THOSE OUGHT TO BE INTERESTING! I CAN HEAR IT NOW--WHAT A**HOLE TOOK THOSE PICS?

OK--SO THAT'S THE SKINNY--I'LL LIVE TILL I DIE--THIS IS JUST AN INCONVENIENCE AS FAR AS PAIN AND A LITTLE  DECREASED ACTIVITY , AND I WILL TAKE THAT AND LIVE AND LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF THE REST OF MY LIFE!

ATTITUDE, STRESSING, OR A PITY PARTY WILL DO NOTHING POSITIVE FOR MY SITUATION!
THIS IS ALL BY DIVINE DESIGN AND I WILL MAKE THE BEST OF IT!

DID IT BUM ME OUT A LITTLE?--YES- INITIALLY, FOR A SHORT TIME.  BUT THAT IS OVER WITH NOW AND IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON! SO PREPARE FOR MORE TERRIBLE PUNS AND PICTURES!


WE ALL COME ACROSS ROCKY PATHS!


 I APPRECIATE ALL YOUR PRAYERS, WELL WISHES AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS!


PROBABLY WILL CHILL TOMORROW AND WATCH FOOTBALL---SO I'LL SEE YOU FOR 

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY!



CLOGGED ARTERY OR FEMALE ANATOMY? HEY--I JUST TOOK THE PIC!

AND I WAS ACTUALLY TOLD TO HAVE 1 OR 2 OF THESE A DAY--IT REALLY IS   SUPPOSED TO HELP?   SO DAD WASN'T AN ALCHEMY- MIST! - ALL THOSE YEARS!
HE WAS HEART HEALTHY
 
 I SHALL LIVE FOR MANY MORE OF THESE!
 THERE IS ALWAYS A PATCH OF SUNLIGHT ON ANY ROAD!!!!
 AND SOMETHING OF BEAUTY TO BEHOLD......
THIS WILL BE THE LAST POST RE: ANY COMPLAINTS: 
LIFE IS TO SHORT AND PRECIOUS FOR THAT & WE ALL HAVE OUR CROSSES TO BEAR. I MAY HAVE TO DO ONE MORE PIC OF THE FINISHED FLOORING....BECAUSE IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND SAD AT THE SAME TIME.
SAD BECAUSE OUR DOG, HOPE..IS TERRIFIED TO WALK ON IT.  IT IS VERY SLIPPERY.....SHE FELL 3 TIMES NOT BEING USED TO IT, AND I HOPE IF WE TRIM HER NAILS A LITTLE MORE SHE WILL GET A GRIP--AR AR! NOW THE BEAUTIFUL FLOORING IS COVERED WITH QUILTS, SHEETS AND TOWELS SO SHE CAN GO OUTSIDE!!!!!
HOW DO YOU HANDLE ADVERSITY?
DOES IT STAY WITH YOU FOR HOURS? DAYS? WEEKS?
CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE?
THERE ARE NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWERS AS EVERY SITUATION IS SO DIFFERENT!
I CHOOSE TO BE OPTIMISTIC AND A REALIST AT THE SAME TIME--BUT ONE THING I'M NOT GONNA LET IT DO:
STEAL JOHN

 OR
STEAL MY JOY!
HOW ABOUT YOU?
