September 30,2010

Today was a busy day and I didn't feel that great. Didn't sleep much last night and don't know why. I went to bed a bit to early maybe. I think it was about 9:30 when I got home from practice at Barrys and Wendy was already in bed. Yesterday afternoon she cut her thumb really bad. Split her left thumb with one of my Stanley utility knives. It is cut from the top of her thumb all the way down the center to the quick and pretty deep. Anyway she didn't sleep to well, I don't think because she moaned a lot. I woke up at 1:11am. and couldn't get back to sleep so I came down to the old computer and did some of the things that I should have done for the last two weeks and finially went back to bed about 5:10am.
Tanya and the kids came over early and Wendy and Tanya went out in the garage and painted some chairs that Wendy bought at the auction last Saturday with Kristy.
I didn't do much today just laid around and chatted with the kids. I just didn't seem to have a lot of energy. At 5 pm. I drove to Coaldale as we had to play at the Pemmican lodge in Lethbridge and Barry was going to be running late so I picked up some of his equipment and his wife Gwen and met him at Tim Horten in Lethbridge. We had coffee and he grabbed a bite and we went and play from 7 until 8:30pm. We had fun and it was a real good evening for both of us. We had about 40 people that we played for and they all said they enjoyed it so that was good. Well here it is 11:30 and I am here at this silly old computer. Guess I should call Wendy and then go to bed or I will be feeling bad again tomorrow.Well good night to you all and may God Bless you.

September 24, 2010

Well guess you better check this out. Another post in the same week. Wow am I doing good or what??
Well it has been really nice for the last 2 days and I am glad. Yesterday I went out back in our shed and cleaned it up and have made a bit of room for the fountains . It is so nice out I almost hate to put them away but I know that this weather won't last to long. I saw a few mouse droppings and a hole in one of our chair cushions. I set 3 traps and this morning had 2 mice. Guess I'll reset them for sure.I was thinking of getting some mouse poison but then if the mouse eats that and dies and one of the neighbors cats eat it will they die too?? I don't want to start a war with the neighbors and I guess our dog could eat one if she found it outside of the shed.

Well today I went for coffee and got lots of comments about our playing that I did last night at the seniors center. We had a pretty large crowd and they really liked us. I had fun doing it and didn't miss to many notes. ha ha. That always helps. Barry also did a real good job. I thought that we sounded pretty good but what do I know eh? Wendy worked last night from 7 to 7 so she wasn't able to come and listen.
This  morning I went shopping and bought some eggs, bread, orange juice and some bacon for the Men's Breakfast tomorrow morning at the church. It is at 8:30am if any of you guys can make it. So far only about 12 are coming but we are hoping for more.

Wendy just left for Red Deer and is going to meet Kristy and then they are going to Edmonton. I have to take our dog Matty  to the pet shop and she is getting a bath and her nails cut.I just had to give her a good brushing yesterday as she went out back and got into some bushes and was just covered with little burs in her hair. I'm sure the Pet shop would not be happy trying to get them out. She is a good old dog but guess I have to watch her so she don't get into them again.

I'll have to post on Sunday and let you all know what Wendy and Kristy buys at the auction. I told her if she buys something she has to throw something out to make room for the new item. Not sure that will work.ha ha. The other day Tanya and Wendy came home with an old chair (which is Tanya's) and an old tricycle. Looks like is is really old. Well right now they are both in my garages. sigh. Tanya says she is going to paint the chair and then I hope she takes it home. The bike I guess I'll have to live with unless someone steals it (I hope).Ha ha fat chance of that eh?
Oh well life is like that around my house.
Well guess I have to get ready and take the dog in, so I had better post this and get going. Have a great day and God Bless you all.

September 20, 2010

Well it is still raining out this morning. Wendy is off to work and I am back from coffee. Only thing new about today was the coffee. Same old bull from same old guys. ha ha. All they seem to talk about is their old jobs and all their operations. Heard it all before. ha ha. Guess that is what old guys talk about . Huummm.

Well Last night Wendy and I went to church and heard our friend Darrell give his testimony. He did a real good job we both enjoyed it. It is always good to hear how other came to know Jesus. Hopefully some of the other guys were inspired and will give their testimony one of these day.I suppose that some day soon Pete will ask me too. Not sure mine will be as interesting as Darrell's but who knows.

Normally Pete and I meet every Monday at 11:30 for prayer but he is busy today so guess we are meeting on Wednesday. Tonight Wendy and I are driving up to Calgary after she finish's work to see our friend Anne who is in the hospital there. Anne is a lady that Wendy meets once a week and prays with.
Guess I should take out something for supper but Wendy said not to make anything for her so maybe I'll just fry up a green tomato from our garden and maybe a slice of ham or something.
Well guess I should go out in the garage and clean up but I think I'll have to fire up a heater as it is a bit cool out.
Just came across this picture and thought that it might get a laugh or 2. This was taken over a year ago before little Sophie was born. Tanya and I doing a BBQ at her house. Don't remember what we were cooking but looks like we were having fun. She sure is pretty eh??

Well I hope you all have a great day and God Bless you all.

September 19, 2010

Well today was one of those Sunday when I was glad to see that it was Sunday but sad to find out that Wendy was not feeling well. I know she was really looking forward to going to church but guess God had other plans eh? Last Sunday she was working so that didn't work. This morning I didn't play on the worship team. I just felt that I should go and lead the prayer service before church . There was only 3 of us  there so I am glad I went. The worship team was find with that and they did a great job of leading the congregation in song. The service was really good. Pastor preached on John 16. The topic was (in a little while.) Pastor Pete always does a great job with his sermons.
It was still raining this morning and then just after I got home from church it just poured. It will make it hard for the farmers to get their crops in unless it dries up soon. It is to wet for the Beet Farmers to dig their Sugar Beets. There is still a lot of grain that needs to be harvested.
Wendy made a great salad for lunch. She is such a sweetie. I sat down after lunch to watched a bit of TV and took and hour or so nap. Woke up just before the races ended. Then I watched a bit of football but the Edmonton team is not doing well this year, at the half they are loosing 26 to 7 sigh.
We are planning a men's breakfast for next Saturday morning at 8:30 am.  Not sure what we will do yet. Scrambled eggs and bacon or Pancakes and sausages. I'll talk to my friends Art and Kevin and we will decide on one. I am going to call all the guys and hopefully we can get a lot of guys out. I looked up all the phone number last night. I find if you call them you get more guys out.
Maybe I should  take the mower off my tractor and put the snow plow on but I still think it is a bit early.
Tuesday morning I am playing with Barry at the St Michel's senior home and then on Friday we play here in Butte at the senior hall.

Well I didn't post this yesterday but I should have.

September 15, 2010

Ok Ok  Guess I had better write something before I get thrown by the wayside eh?? For some reason I have just got out of the habit of doing my Blog. I guess I feel that (really  who cares what I do today or tomorrow) and why would they want to read my Blog. I don't think it is interesting . So am I looking at it wrong?? I don't work and I don't have a lot of things going on in my life, so isn't it boring when I just write about what I did today ?? Like mow the lawn,go get bread at the bakery or do a little gig tonight for the seniors.

Ok here goes. Last night I sat home with our tired old dog and watched a bit of sports which was boring. Then I went down stairs and practiced on the Harmonica for a gig that we are doing tonight. We are playing for the next 3 night .Tonight we play at Black Rock Seniors home in Lethbridge and tomorrow we play at The Sunny South  Seniors Home in Coaldale an then on Friday we play at Diamond Willow in Magrath. Next week we have a few more and one is here in Picture Butte for our Seniors Club, (Happy Old timers), nice name eh??? Then I chatted with A friend of Wendy's for a few minutes on face book chat line from the states. I have to make a CD for her of some of my music and send it to her. Oh wow I just remembered that today is Soup and sandwich at the club and it is 5 minutes to 12 now. Guess I'll have to write more later

Ok I'm back
Well went for lunch at the Seniors Club and enjoyed that. Stopped at the bakery and bought some bread. Wendy went to see a friend of hers this morning and hasn't gotten back yet. Then I went out and mowed my 4 lawns and the church lawn and did a bit of trimming. Came home and watched a bit of CSI Miami without falling asleep. Now I have to pack up my amp and Harmonica's and load them in my truck for tonight. I have to leave here about 6 and set up at Black Rock Seniors Home and be ready for Barry when he gets there. He said he might be a bit late so I am going to take my CD player with me just in case he doesn't make it, I at least will have a bit of backup music and will just play along with it until he get there.
I have to get my garage cleaned up in the next week or so because it looks like we might get some cold weather soon. sigh. Well if you read this fairly soon maybe just pray that I will be able to do a good job of playing tonight especially if Barry is late or can't make it.  I haven't done a gig by myself in a long time. I think the last time I did one by myself was when Benny forgot his guitar in Edmonton and had to go from the north side to the south side to get it and I had to do the gig for about 3/4 of and hour before he got back. But things like that happen some time's .ha ha.  It is funny thinking back but at the time it was a bit scary. Well I had better get going and get things packed up. Wendy is going to pick up 3 of our grandchildren in a little while for a sleepover. Not sure how much sleeping we get in but that is what they call it. Well I told you it would be boring but what can I say that has been my day. Hope you all have a great day and may God Bless you all.
