Truck drama…. I sold my beloved truck last year and have to replace it. That is if i want to pull my Airstream this summer. But it has been very stressful.

Put it down to not sleeping last night. I think all the coming and going for the past week as I went to various church services as...

Happy Spring!

Some time ago we decided to buy a new fridge for next Christmas to replace our 17 year old fridge. Then the ice machine broke on the old refrigerator. We decided we did not like living without an ice machine in the fridge. So we decided to go ahead and replace the fridge since it did not make sense to invest in a new ice machine for a...

New Desktop Computer With Windows 8.1

Posted by fking in fking's Blog, 18 April 2014 - - - - - - · 58 views

I finally broke down and got me a new computer with windows 8.1 instead of windows 7 which I was pretty used to operating that. This windows 8. is a bit different for my little brain. Typing and responding here on Strokenet is a lot easier now without having to type every word twice. Now I'm still trying to find the spell checker like I had on the other...

The saga continues

Ray hasn't been walking, except up and down the stairs for the bedroom, all winter long. And popping in and out of the car, but lately he seems to prefer waiting for me rather than coming in the stores. Hasn't had the AFO on even once. Then the other day I asked him why he doesn't get into his wheelchair by himself anymore, which he can do...

Normal meant enjoying my laying in the bed while he get up extremely early to pray and read his...

Filters

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 23 March 2014 - - - - - - · 118 views

Filters I used to have an Aunt who would open her mouth and say whatever was on her mind, without any concern for how biting her words could be. I always thought she had no filter between her brain and the words that came out of that mouth. I don't know if it's just plain rudeness or brain farts, but lately we've run into a few older ladies just like...
