Our Prayers go out to the families in Central NY who are battling with the flooding conditions as we speak.
With heavy downpours still in the forecast there is no relief in site.
Thanks to friends back in New York via Facebook, here are current pictures to show what is happening.

Daily Prompt: Citizen of Today


Daily Prompt: 21st Century Citizen

Do you belong in this day and age?
Do you feel comfortable being a citizen of the 21st-century?
If you do, explain why —
and if you don’t,
when in human history would you rather be?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MODERN.

Let’s get real here for a second… there is not an era that has gone by that has not had it’s trials and tribulations.
With that being said, living for today and making a difference in todays society might just have an impact on tomorrow.

  • Being kind to a stranger (even a smile or kind word)
  • Being a foster parent to stray animals
  • Being a helping hand in your community
  • Teaching a class for just the cost of supplies in your community
  • Having a get to know you party in your neighborhood

Our neighbors got to know us when we went around with cameras and video equiptment and loved the video we made…

It did not cost us anything and did not hurt the environment at all…gave a smile to 28,135 people so far…

It was a way for me to get to know my neighbors and they got to know me as the lady from NY with the camera lol…

What have you done in this century to make an impact?

Would love to hear…

Daily Prompt: A Life In Review


Daily Prompt: Four Stars

Write a review of your life — or the life of someone close to you — as if it were a movie or a book.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LIFE.

540309_394119673963962_1544795604_n

 

Our story opens in a small town outside of Buffalo NY.  It is hard times.  Life is not easy in the 50’s,  a couple with seven children.

Working in the Bethlehem Steel Mill is the job that is available.  It is a hard dirty job.  Luckily it is a job and puts food on the table.

292266_3027546051061_704291546_n

 

582668_3028146386069_1393269719_n

 

As the family grows so do the bonds between each of the family members.

134005_4229646492544_620923831_o

 

Being the baby of the family, at eighteen he goes off to war to do three tours.  He meets a gal from New York State and starts a family of his own.

326308_4105852397769_1829807860_o

 

They go through good times and bad times.  The children grow up and start families of their own.

He becomes divorced.

972338_10200504640111640_658701519_n

 

He is a unique person.  Some days in a world of his own.  He decides to become married again and start a different life.

Some of the old life still creeps in and haunts him.

251679_1882356171753_6214781_n

 

He tries hard to cope with it from day to day.

184427_10200501691397924_1103692988_n

 

Just like his gnome…he travels through life with each day being a new adventure.  Coping with the past, yet looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.




This is Eman, my hubby.  A life in review.  So many pages undisclosed.  A mystery to my readers.  A must see the movie or read the book to get the juicy details.

Enjoy.

Daily Prompt: Hubby & The Telemarketer


Daily Prompt: Unknown Caller

 You receive a call from someone an unexpected person. Who is it, and what is the conversation about? Go!

035

 

You might say my hubby is a bit of a clown.  Since he is hard of hearing, that only makes the situation a little funnier sometimes.  This prompt actually brought two telephone calls to mind for me.  One was a telemarketer who has put us on the do not call list now on her end, not that we asked btw she insisted after speaking with him.

She was a Diabetic Supply Telemarketer who called to tell us that we had a free sample of Diabetic Supplies coming in the mail.  She needed our address of where to send them.

In his best Spanish accent he proceeded to tell her “Yes this is Emmanuel”.  “Oh, You are so wonderful.  My family in Mexico is in such need of this.  They will be so grateful.  Can you send 300 samples right away to VOVOVOVOdlddld Mexico?”
He gave an actual address that I have blocked out here that he had found on Google while talking to her.
She insisted that there was only one sample per family and he continued to tell her that he was hard of hearing and that his family was in dire need of the medical supplies.
This conversation continued for 45 minutes.
I lost track of how many times I begged him to stop.

Story two:

This one I made a video of.

To give some background on these three videos, my hubby is a junk food addict.  One of his favorites is Funyuns.  His brother in Lackawanna NY decided to get into this prank after seeing my post on You Tube so there is his answer here also.

Grab a cup of your favorite brew and enjoy.

I guess you could say it runs in the family.

Have a great day and try not to prank a telemarketer or call about your favorite snack today or people might say “You have too much time on your hands”

Daily Prompt: Turning of the Seasons


Daily Prompt: Turn, Turn, Turn

For many of us, winter is blooming into spring, or fall hardening into winter. Which season do you most look forward to?

Yes She’s a Yankee from New York and I’m a Rebel from Tennessee.

 

My hubby loves the Spring time with all of the blossoms starting to come out and the beautiful flowers that are starting to bloom in our yard.

I on the other hand love the Summers here in Tennessee.  They are so awesome.  He says they are too warm.  After living in cold and wet New York, I love them.

What is your favorite Season?  Would love to hear from you…

Today is going to be in the 70’s.  My windows are open and the breeze is wonderful.  I am already loving it.  It is wonderful.  It gives me a fresh sense of energy.

Except for the grass clippings there is less pollen that is why I love the Summer more than Spring…The Spring Pollen is tough for me.  Beautiful, but tough for allergies.

Daily Prompt: Idyllic Community


Daily Prompt: Idyllic

What does your ideal community look like? How is it organized, and how is community life structured? What values does the community share?

I must sound like a broken record on this one.  Were we are located gives us a touch of the country while being right next to Clarksville, Tennessee and Ft. Campbell, Kentucky so we have the best of both worlds.  Till I woke up this morning.

We have snow…what is this?  It is New York State weather.  Not normal Tennessee weather.  I borrowed these pictures from a friend who took them last night and this morning.

526793_595250867169755_935422930_n

 

We are not supposed to have hail dropping on our daffodils.

487968_595609303800578_849740473_n

 

What is up with snow?  Yes I know we can still see the ground but the black ice is incredible.

While Clarksville and Woodlawn area offer all the schools, hospital and shopping that one needs, not to mention places to eat and visit…oops I just did lol.

Ft. Campbell is a city within itself.  It has it’s own schools, hospital, shopping, restaurants and things to do.

The community where we are is small and quiet.  When our dog Trina was frightened and ran away for a day, the community came out to help find her.  People actually stopped to ask if we were looking for a child.

trina guarding

She came home just as it got dark (she is afraid of the dark and was hungry.  First thing she did was check her New Box of Milkbones to make sure they were still there.

What is your perfect community?  Do you live in it now?  Would love to hear…

Daily Prompt: Places for me is the country life


Daily Prompt: Places

by michelle w. on March 2, 2013

Beach, mountain, forest, or somewhere else entirely?

Since this prompt was so vague I am not sure exactly what Michelle had in mind, I took it that we were to chose which was our favorite spots.  The beach is nice to visit however, due to the fear of hurricanes, I would not want to live near one.  The mountains are wonderful, as I used to live in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State.  The snow was very deep and it never got very warm.  To me the Mountains and the Forest go hand in hand.  At least there they did.

I am loving the country life.  We do not have cows, or any farm animals nor do our neighbors.  We are located outside of the city and love it.  We have several acres of land where our animals can play.  Although they are all in the warm house today due to the snow falling.  Even my animals from New York now love the warmer weather here and prefer nicer days rather than playing in the snow like they used to.

If my hubby was not afraid of getting on a plane he would love to go to Spain.  I would love to go to Italy, Costa Rica  and Australia.  We both would love to go visit his daughter in Germany while they are there…that is not going to happen though lol…  I would be happy if we just flew to New York to visit both of our families.

What is your favorite place to be?  Please share with me…would love to hear…

Thank you for reading
