This year's Buddy

Last year, my buddy was Peyton Manning whose team, the" Indianapolis Colts" won the Super Bowl. This year I am picking Tom Brady of the New England Patriots to be my buddy and I wonder if he will have the same luck. The Buddy concept is an attempt to get the many people I know who live alone to select a buddy to communicate with on a daily basis. People with family and especially children have those daily contacts and people who go to a place of work have those daily contacts. But the retrirees with children in other states or even other countries have lost that daily contact.

Grandparents & Grandchildren

She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter as she'd done many times before.  After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!"

 My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He  asked me how old I was, and I told him, "62."  He was quiet for a moment,  and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair.  As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin.
Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings.  As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond.  I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard.  We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in.  At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?"  I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we alike?"  "You're both old," he replied.

A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor.  She told him she was writing a story.  "What's it about?" he
asked.   "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her.  I would point out something and ask what color it was.  She would tell me and was always correct.  It was fun for me, so I continued.
At last she headed for the door, saying sagely, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!"

When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects.  Still, a few fireflies followed us in.  Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."

When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure."  "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised. "mine says I'm four to six."

A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what?  We learned how to make babies today."  The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting," she said, "how do you make babies?"  "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."

Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant."
"The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. " Don't you know what
pregnant means?" she asked..   "Sure," said the young boy confidently. "It
means carrying a child."

A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past.  Sitting in the front seat of the truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one child.
"No," said another, "he's just for good luck."A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs, "she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

Special Exhibit

Hello Everyone,

I cordially invite you to attend a photo exhibit "opening" (see flyer below) in memorium of my friend, the late, Barry Tallent.  I will never forget the excitement he expressed when he signed his first "professional" contract for this event one year ago and then the pure ecstacy when I booked him as a "Photo Journalist" at two national, renowned galleries which were to be held last fall and, unfortunately, had to be cancelled and postponed due to my shoulder surgury.  The joy Barry exuded after "finally making it" was priceless and I will never forget that moment!  Attached you will find a poem (some of you have read) that I wrote after I heard about his untimely death last July.:(

If anyone needs accomodations for the weekend of February 8th - please lmk as I can obtain discounts on lodging in Port Huron.  Feel free to contact me (248.835.6017) if you need further assistance.

Hope to see you on February 9th!!!

Saludos,

Susan:)

THE GROUNDED NOMAD ©

 

 

Barry, Oh so contrary –
In perpetual search for the perfect, passionate woman to marry
He searched for a woman who exuded beauty both in body & mind
And who also had a heart & soul and was kind
And who could “share good food and breath-taking views”
Most importantly, though, a travel companion who could be his muse.

His positive attitude deemed his mission possible, indeed,
So, eleven years ago he diligently set forth on his quest and heartfelt need
To take every opportunity from invites, parties, concerts, hiking, biking, racing, athletics, wine-tastings, Art Openings, skiing, health clubs and from afar
And, yes, even good old Tom’s Oyster Bar!!!

Through his pursuit he always kept up his zeal
And never turned down a chance for Love and even a good meal!
He met many good women, however, something was always missing
For he was really looking for sooooooo much more than temporary pleasure and just kissing

Unbeknownst to most, He was, predominantly, looking for a stable mother figure for his dear son, John Paul
This is where the conflicting feelings manifested, after all.
Being grounded and nomadic were a “Catch 22”
So, his life was filled with trying to balance and not misconstrue!

Barry confided that he was a Parent #1, Teacher #2 and Adventurer #3
He was exceptionally able to fulfill these roles to a tee.
I feel fortunate to have “truly” known this “Tallented” guy for fifteen years
In a substantive way unlike the plethora of his peers

I spent many a time with him alone, one on one –
Talking, watching his favorite movie, “Glory”, listening to Reggae, cooking gourmet meals sharing trials and tribulations of our relationships, viewing countless “National Geographic” and “Sopranos” programs and even perusing his favorite books – series of “Motorcycle Diaries (?) with bittersweet memories of tears, jeers, laughter, deep philosophy and most of all, a lot of funJ

Despite many challenges and plights in his life, Barry was always there to give a helping hand even during his own strife.
“He loved LIFE and what it had to offer” was his mantra, A La Mode!
Even though he will be deeply missed, this is not the end of his Life’s episode
As he will live on through his good deeds, good example, his courage and his photography
His Spirit will live on and teach us all to “Live life like there is no tomorrow” exactly how Barry’s positive message intended to be and for us to finally see!
Cheers to the “Grounded Nomad” who did not take life for granted.
His Soul will live on and his wonderful Life cannot be recanted!

Let's Continue The Campaign


Let's keep the campaign going to leave those twinkle lights up until spring when the days are longer and and the light is brighter.You can take down the Christmas decorations but leave the "winter twinkle lights". We need something to brighten up these dingy days . Call your neighbors and community leaders to encourage them to leave the lights up .

" He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me."
Psalm 18:19

From our readers.

Peggy Joe is sounds, and looks like some fossilized suburban liberal broad whose husband left her too much money and now feels that it gives her the ability to pontificate on social issues like the "Greatness" of Martin Luther King.
       I heard Martin Luther King speak at a Luther League convention in 1961 when peggy joe was probably still eating bon-bons at home while her husband worked his ass off so she could survive in the manner she was accustomed to after he croaked. Mr. King was then a self aggrandizing racist as are his followers now because that's what they're keyed in on rather than just treating people as people regardless of race.
       Unfortunately, her naive sentiments about MLK represent just some more of the inane Politically Correct drivel that our country has dumbed down to believe. I'm not a racist but a realist. I went to high school and college with blacks and worked on the Coleman A. Young political campaign in the early 70's which, in retrospect, unfortunately got him elected. That said, I'm really sick and tired of these late-comer neophytes who pick up their philosophical ideas like young kids pick up the latest dress fads or the flu.
       If your organization has any integrity or guts, you will publish this opinion or give it to Peggy Joe.
I was born at night but not last night.

Dear born at night-We have the guts to publish your opinion even though you did not sign your name. But boy you sure got my number wrong.
Peggy Jo


Hi Peggy Jo,

I really like the larger print for the " LOCATION " in your newsletter. It is much easier for everyone to read. There is a problem though that several of the "LOCATIONS " had blank horizontal lines through them ? ?
Phil

Dear Phil,
I have the same problem--But it's strange--It started on Tuesday with Metro Singles, Century Dancers, And Bethany phone #-- Then on some of Thursday Events. As I scrolled checking it out it seemed to change locations. The technicians have been informed of this problem and they are working on a solution.

Peggy Jo


Peggy Jo,

Thank you for the informative and historical perspective on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.  Admittedly, I am somewhat ambivalent with respect to the racial overtones that have succeeded his providential presence in such a turbulent and historical period of time.  The zeitgeist of his dwarfish successors - riding the coat tails of this monumental movement - with artificially induced racial emotionalism by self motivated and racially biased political opportunists - defame, emasculate and mollify the efforts of this historical giant.
H.


To Peggy Jo and those who care about Arts & Scraps,

We have the chance to get $70,000 IF 2,000 people donate $10 through our website before Jan. 31 at noon.  

This would be our new van!  All donors get their name, organization or business on the "Ten Buck Truck". 
We'll use it for pick ups at businesses, programs in schools and weekend events. 
  
With your help we can do this

 Please donate and pass this on to others. 

Below is the body of an email that you can personalize and send on. 
 
At our website (see below) there is also a page to download about the program.
 
Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance for your help--
 
Peg Upmeyer,
Director


Be a part of Something BIG
Get your name on the Ten Buck Truck for $10!

  Parade Magazine and the Case Foundation are awarding $50,000 each to the 4 non-profits across the US than can collect the greatest quantity of on-line donations of $10 or more by noon on Jan. 31.  We need 2,000 people.  I have already donated.  Would you join me to make this happen?  Arts & Scraps annually serves over 3,600 organizations, representing 275,000 children--they all thank you.
 
  Arts & Scraps desperately needs a new cargo van.  Their present van has 139,000 miles and the back bed is rusted through.  With the $50,000, they will purchase the "Ten Buck Truck".  This walk-in cargo van will pick up 28 tons of industrial scraps at locations all over the metro area.  It will also go to schools and organizations with programs for children and youth and will bring creative activities to family areas at public & private events, even birthday parties at homes.  It will allow Arts & Scraps to expand event services throughout the state.  
 
  They will put the donor names all over the vehicle.  You could have your or your children's names, your business, organization or school, all showing that the Ten Buck Truck and Arts & Scraps are community projects.  We'll have our names in print together! 
 
  To donate and see a picture of the Ten Buck Truck, go to http://ARTSandSCRAPS.org
 
  After hitting "donate", you will be directed to Network for Good, another non-profit, who processes the donation.  In the "designation" field, please list the name that you would like on the van.  There is an additional $0.47 processing fee.
 
After you donate, can you pass this around?  I think it will be really exciting to involve so many people and $10 is a real comfortable "ask".  Thanks!


Hello Peggy Jo,

Please encourage people to turn off unneeded lights. We have enough light and air polution, our bills are high enough and our world is getting warmer because of waste. Wasted energy is being implicated in everything from mercury polution and global warming to land loss and increased hunger and starvation among the worlds most vulnerable populations. It always amazes me at how little those that call themselves Christians care about others.

Sincerely,
Dean G. Sherwood

Dear Dean
> Thank you for your input. How ironic that I received your global warming waring message when our weather was in the teens. If you are referring to my "keep the twinkling winter lights up " campaign, I don't think the lights use ebough energy to worry about compared to the less gloomy atmosphere they provide during the long winter season.
Peggy Jo
