We did not watch the State of the Union speech live.  

We recorded it.

We are watching it now.

Wow and more wow!!!

How can the dems sit?!  They even sat when the POTUS said AMERICAN money should go to only friends of AMERICA!!  

How can they sit on a statement like this?!

It is time for the states that have these people as their representatives, to vote them out! 

They do NOT represent you or AMERICA!

So sad to see the crying parents that have lost their children!!!

This is our daughter with her daughter.  

It's when they lived in TN.

Now they live in Iowa.

It's too far away.

Wal-Mart is one of my favorite stores.  It was not for a long time.  

When Sam died, the store changed.  Prices went up, stores became more modern, etc.  Along with it, the attitudes changed.  It was harder to find a real bargain any more.  The fabric departments were deleted.  Booooo.

Today, though, I had a good experience. 

I really like the order online, pick up at store service.  I sit, shop, go into the side door of the store, pick up my items, along with other things I might have purchased and I'm done!

Today, I followed this plan.  But, when the items I ordered were not right, chaos ensued.  It's a long story.

Basically....One item ordered was out of stock so my card was credited for that item.  One item I received was not ordered or even on the checkout receipt or even showed up on the computer!  

The store was so embarrassed that I was given a gift card for the item that was not even ordered.  I walked out with a gift card for over $21.00.  It was all the store could do and I was told that with all the frustration, I deserved the card.

I was not sure if I should take it because I did not order it.  Long story, short, the Customer Service rep insisted, the employee at the pick up desk insisted and the employee on the phone said do it.

Isn't that nice?

How you discovered Pinterest?  It's wildly popular!

It is also crazy addictive!

Go to the website, sign up and be prepared to spend mucho hours exploring it!

Looking for a tiny house idea?  It is there.

Looking for a way to mix and match your clothes?  It is there.

Looking for new and old recipes.  There!

It is a good diversion, too.  

I rarely change the pins, only save it to the folder I choose and move on.

Check it out.

It may be your new habit.

The flu is here.  It gives me lots of time to think.  Maybe too much.  Thinking about starting a new blog.  

What is the best platform?

One step at a time.

Rarely does it happen in Dixie but, yes, we have a deep freeze! 

The weather was not as bad as projected but still very very cold!

Last year, winter was very mild. 

This year has surpassed last year, already!

So, keep the milk and bread in the house.

Pray the power stays on since the house is all electric.

All will be okay.

When we went to Atlanta, we stopped for gas for the car.  

This custom bike was there along with several others and a group of men.

I asked to take a picture of this one because I have never seen one like it!

BTW it was for sale.

Price, you ask?  


Pretty cool.

Well, the title pretty much says it all.

I'm stuck.

I cannot seem to move forward so I took the plunge.

I signed up for and attended my first grief class.  

I can't afford counseling, really, it's so expensive!

So, I am doing the next best thing.  I hope it is.

It will last thirteen weeks, minus Easter.

It is suppose to take a person from mourning to joy.
