Works for me Wednesday

This is a tip I just had to share. Mouth Ulcers, Canker Sores, what ever they are called, hurt and make eating almost impossible. I found something that helps more than anything I have tried and I have tried Everything!! Milk of Magnesia(it does not matter what flavor), I know it sounds crazy but it works. It keeps them from hurting and it seems like they heal quicker. I dab it on with a q tip. I guess you could swish with it if you have more than one(My husband gets several at a time) This works for me!!!

We got together last night for Robert's Birthday. We had Hot Dogs, Chili, Cornbread, and Mom made a big Pot of Blue Soup!!(I think the real name would be bean soup)This has several different kinds of beans, corn, and ham. When done the soup looks blue. We also had Pumpkin Pie(Robert's favorite) and Cherry Cheesecake. We built a fire and had coffee. Tootie just run all over the house and had the biggest time going up and down the couple of steps that goes down to my sunken living room. She thought she was really big!!!

I bought her a Christmas necklace and bracelet set with Red and Green beads. The beads are on elastic. She put them on and wore them like a big girl. She is growing up so fast and she is the light of my life.

Addie called me MaMaw the other day too. We have been calling me, Grammy to her, but I guess that is hard to say. So the other day at the office someone told her to go get Grammy and she come flying through my office door hollerin' Mamaw! I could not believe it. Mom was there and heard her say it and Robert was in his office and heard her too. So I guess I am "MaMaw"!!!!

Here is my birthday present!! I saw one of these tables at a friends home.(I actually went to look at this home for the house plan layout and saw a similar table and fell in love with it)
This is a "Gathering Table" or "Pub Table". It is taller than the average dining table and the chairs are like bar stool height. We purchased this at Henco in Selmer (It's worth the drive). We went over to look and I thought I would have one or two to chose from. It turned out they have like 10 or 12. I had an awful time trying to decide. There were others I liked better but they were a little big for the space I have. But after getting it home and seeing it I absolutely love it!!! Thank you Robert!!!! I love you!!!

Chase went back to the Doc again today. He was just there last Monday. Three Shots and bottles of medicine. He got to feeling better, then yesterday he said his throat hurt and was coughing real bad. He did not feel better this mornin, so Robert took him to the Doc and we got 3 more shots and more meds and doctor's excuse to be out of school till Wednesday. He is borderline pneumonia. I think Doc Jim called it walking pneumonia. He run a little fever last night but it broke and he has not run fever since. He is bored and doin some school work, (a book report I think) I am not real worried about that, he has all A's and one B this year so he is doin well for his senior year.

Robert went with him this morning, he fell a week ago and we thought he had cracked his hip, so he went and had it x-rayed. Doc said he thought it was a pulled muscle, he did not see anything else on the x-ray. He also got a tetnus shot. He went into an old house the other day and stepped on a rusty nail. Went right thru his shoe. We cleaned it out and I told him he really needed a tetnus shot.

I went to the doc last week. I run fever for the first time in 17 years. I don't get sick much, but I missed a day of work for the first time in 3 years. I also got 3 shots and taking the same antibiotic that Chase is taking now. I hope we get better soon. Winter ain't even here yet. I hope this is not what this winter is going to be like....?????

Pickwick Belle Featuring Addie the Dancer!!!

We went on the Pickwick Belle compliments of Hardin County Bank and we had a ball. Especially Addie. They had a live band playing Jimmy Buffet music and Addie Cleared the floor and stood in front of the band and danced the night away. We had heavy Hor'dourves, they were really good. Addie eat some of everything. She even ate lamb and loved it. She is her Baw Baw's Baby!!!

We had a good time and took lots of pictures. Tony won a Door Prize from the Saw Meal and I won one from Michaels. There were a lot of real estate folks so we got to see some of them and catch up.

Robert took Addie up on the top deck to watch the Paddle Wheel and she just squealed... A little water sprayed her in the face and she loved it!!

Why I Vote the Way I Do!!

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately
need your help! My baby is not even 1 yr. old and I'm
pregnant again. I don't want kids so close

So the doctor said: 'Ok, and what do you want me
to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and
I'm counting on your help with this.'

The doctor thought for a little, and after some
silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better
solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to
accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for
you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time,
let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could
rest some before the other one is born. If we're going
to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is.
There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in
your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: 'No
doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!

'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But
you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that was the
best solution. The doctor smiled, realizing that he had
made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no
difference in killing a child that's already been born
and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!
I have voted Democrat one time in my life and that is because the man I voted for had voted against abortion. I cannot understand how it is Ok to kill an unborn child, for any reason. Roe vs Wade needs to be overturned, we have come a long way on Birth Control... If you get pregnant now it is a good chance you were careless(I know this is not the case all the time) They call it Pro Choice, has anyone ask the baby what his or her choice would be????
I also do not believe same sex couples should be allowed to enter into the sanctity of marriage. I have no problem with them entering a contract that would allow them to get insurance and have the right to care for the other if they were to have some kind of sickness and decisions need to be made.
I also believe the right to bear arms is very important but not as much as a human life!!!
