LOSING MY BEADS!!!

FOLLOW THIS LINK TO READ THE FULL STORY ----> When I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes about thirty years ago, I ignored the fact, rather like sticking one's head under the blanket in the belief 'if I can't see it, it can't see me'. Sadly, it could see me and snuck up on me in two different ways. ---------->> !!!NEW BLOG POST LIVE!!! Head on over to the link below and take a moment to laugh.

SHIFTING SHAPES AND SHADOWS!!!

Then, of course, there was the humble candle. It had its own little metal tray, or saucer, with a handle attached. Candles were great for a quick, natural light in the dark, but not so good if one had to walk anywhere with them. Then, because we had moved, they would flicker and faint like some frail, frightened maiden. We would then have to stand stock still... waiting for them to recover. NEW BLOG POST LIVE!!!

WIGGLES & GIGGLES!!!

As a firm believer in laughter being the best medicine, after the old GP, who had absolutely no sense of humour, had checked my blood pressure, sugar levels, lung function and eyesight, he held up one finger asking how many I could see, then moved it from side to side, noting how I tracked the movement.

PUTTING HIS FOOT IN IT

My dad was a great guy. He overcame many an obstacle in his life, one of which was losing his foot in a mine. He was inspecting the dynamite charges set in the wall of rock designated for blasting. When some idiot lit them prematurely without giving my father time to scramble to safety. Read more---------> by following the link NEW BLOG POST LIVE!!!

OWLS: Friend or Fiend??

THIS WEEKS STORY: OWLS: FRIEND OR FIEND?? There are many different beliefs about owls. Some are so stupid they're laughable, such as the one that if an owl fixes its eyes on you and you walk around the tree it's sitting in three times, it will end up wringing its neck.

INTUITION: A MOTHERS GIFT FROM GOD?

THIS WEEKS STORY: INTUITION: A MOTHERS GIFT FROM GOD? One awful day though he nearly took too high a chance with his young life. Living in the country, we often had unwelcome visitors from the surrounding bush. Scary spiders, enormous horned beetles, strange spiked geckos were a few of these intruders.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE!!!

Come to think of it. Maybe those bath interruptions were not the worst, perhaps those that ripped me from my slumbers were. The rage that would engulf me on these occasions would be dizzying. I imagined him, or her,
giggling at the other end of the line, absolutely delighting in my frustration and fury.

The calls were beginning to affect my health. The constant interruption of my sleep was tiring me out. I was becoming irritable. All I wanted was to have a good night's sleep but found even when the phone did not ring, I still lay awake, waiting for, and dreading the sound of its bell.

UH, WHICH DITCH?

" Stop. Stop!", we yelled, but Dad carried on reversing,

" It's okay! I can see!" he snapped, somewhat irritated by us.

" No! No! Stop!" We yelled in frantic unison, but he carried on, completely ignoring us.

" I can see! Dammit!" he yelled back at us.

Then, putting his elbow and head out the window, to get a better look, he said, rather angrily" Shut up, all of you, I know what I am doing!"

We could see how close he was to the ditch and carried on shouting,

" No Dad, Stop, stop, STOP!",
