HI JOHN---

CLOUDY AND COLD IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING; THE TASTE OF SPRING WE HAD A FEW DAYS BACK IS A FADING MEMORY. THE CHEROKEES LONG FOR SUNSHINE.

ALL IS WELL AM GRISHEIM. THE CURRENT GRANNY GUARD IS BABY DAUGHTER. HER BOYS ARE WITH THEIR COUSINS AT OKMULGEE AND #2 SIL IS WORKING ON THEIR OLD HOUSE PREPPING IT TO SELL.

Homeschooling diary.
2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job.
One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.
My child just said "I hope I don't have the same teacher next year".... I'm offended.

NOT SURE WHAT AN "ON DEMAND" WATER HEATER IS; IF IT'S LIKE WHAT WE HAD IN GERMANY YOU CAN RUN OUT OF HOT WATER RIGHT QUICK.

HOUSE HAD RADIATORS & FUEL OIL FIRED FURNACE IN THE BASEMENT.
NO HOT WATER TANK, JUST PIPE COILS RUNNING THRU THE FURNACE. OK AS LONG AS YOU BABIED IT ALONG JUST DON'T EXPECT A LOT OF HOT WATER :-0

#1 DAUGHTER & SIL HAVE THE BEST DEAL OF ALL. THERE IS AN OLD GAS WELL ON THEIR PLACE AND THEY GET FREE NATURAL GAS. FREE HEATING AND IF THE LIGHTS GO OUT THE STANDBY GENERATOR IS GAS FED.

HARD TO BEAT THAT!

WOW! I'LL JUST STICK WITH MY PROPANE TANK AND ELECTRIC CO-OP, THANK YOU!

IT'S RAINING ON THE CHEROKEES---AGAIN. COLD FRONT SUPPOSED TO BE COMING THRU. WAS WINDY BUT NICE YESTERDAY. HER MAJESTY AND THE LADIES-IN-WAITING SAT OUT ON THE FRONT PORCH.

THE GUARD HAS CHANGED AGAIN, #3 GRANDSON AND GRANDDAUGHTER-IN-LAW TO-BE ARE ON DUTY TODAY. LA MEXICANA HAS ALREADY OVERHAULED THE KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM AND HAD ME FED THIS MORNING ALMOST BEFORE I GOT MY EYES OPEN. SHE IS A WHIZZ.

LIKE THE OLD HIPPY, "I'M JUST TRYING REAL HARD TO ADJUST" :-)

A man spoke to each of his 3 sons when he sent them off to college...

"I feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die."
And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father's time had come, and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish.

First, the doctor put 10 newly printed crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.
Then, the financial planner also put $1,000 there in 20 newly printed crisp $50 bills.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer's turn. He reached into his pocket, took out his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father's coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.

The lawyer is now running for Congress, possibly in your district.

SOME DOGS ARE LIKE THAT WITH PORCUPINES, WON'T STOP GOING AFTER THEM. OTHERS LEARN WITH ONE TRIAL.

I was supposed to work but no one was there to let me in. I checked later still closed so I came home. If I’d worked I would have drove right in the path soon as I left the office. Blessed.
Would’ve been worse but a lot were home due to the virus. Our office is okay but the airport, mall and other places are destroyed.
Glad to see your wife is getting along Gris. Mustn’t let her get used to servants lol.
Y’all take care and be grateful for all you have.


GLAD THE STORM MISSED YOU :-)

SUNNY AND COLD IN THE NATIONS. THE CHEROKEES ARE SATISFIED AS LONG AS IT'S SUNNY.

DARLING WIFE IS REVELING IN HAVING TWO MEN TO ORDER ABOUT; SHE MAY NEVER WALK AGAIN ;-)

I SEE WHERE NEW JERSEY AND RHODE ISLAND ARE HUNTING DOWN NEW YORKERS. IF THE BOUNTY IS BIG ENOUGH I MAY GO UP THERE. WONDER IF THEY ARE COLLECTING SCALPS OR EARS?

IN THE 1840'S THE A MEXICAN BORDER STATE PUT A BOUNTY ON APACHE SCALPS. IT IMMEDIATELY OCCURRED TO CERTAIN ENTERPRISING GRINGOS THAT MEXICAN SCALPS WOULD PASS FOR APACHE.

HI TOMMY

CLOUDY AND MILD IN THE NATIONS, RAIN LOOMING. THE CHEROKEES ARE RESIGNED.

DARLING WIFE AND #3 ARE STILL ASLEEP. THIS WILL BE THE FIRST FULL DAY OF HOME CARE. ONE OF THE NEIGHBORS BROUGHT CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS YESTERDAY EVENING, ENOUGH FOR ALL FIVE PRESENT.

IF THE RAIN WOULD STAY AWAY I COULD GET SOME YARD WORK OUT OF #3, BIG KID, STRONG AS A BULL. HE'LL BE DOING HIS CLASS WORK ON LINE, DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT WILL AMOUNT TO.

NO WORD ON DARLING WIFE'S RELEASE FROM HOSPITAL. A BIT OF CONFUSION UP THERE I THINK. I DOUBT THE MEDICAL BUREAUCRATS WILL GET THEIR DUCKS IN A ROW IN TIME FOR US TO GET HER HOME TODAY.

I'M JUST SITTING HERE ON "STRIP ALERT"---

SUNNY AND MILD IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING, NICE DAY IN THE OFFING.

DARLING WIFE DOING WELL. THE FAMILY MEDICAL CAUCUS, VETERINARIAN, ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON, ALMOST MD, PHARMACOLOGIST, THINK IT BEST TO BRING HER HOME RATHER THAN GOING TO AN AFTER CARE FACILITY.

I DO TOO. #3 GRANDSON WILL BE AVAILABLE TO DO THE HEAVY LIFTING, AS WELL AS #1 GRANDDAUGHTER THE ALMOST MD. IT'S POSSIBLE SHE COULD GET OUT TOMORROW, BUT I'M NOT OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THAT.

THE STATE BOOZE CONTROLLERS HAVE OK’D HOME DELIVERY OF ALCOHOL TO “ENCOURAGE SOCIAL DISTANCING”---DISTANCING HELL, THAT’S GONNA ENCOURAGE A BABY BOOM :-)

BAD NEWS FROM THE NATIONS:
DARLING WIFE FELL AND BROKE HER HIP LAST NIGHT. ORTHOPEDIC SIL SAYS ITS THE BEST KIND OF HIP BREAK. SMALL COMFORT THERE! SHE'S IN THE HOSPITAL IN TULSA, HIP PINNED, SURGERY DONE, NO COMPLICATIONS. THE HOSPITAL IS ALLOWING NO VISITORS.

BAD TIME TO BE IN THE HOSPITAL. WHAT COMES NEXT I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE REHAB---SHE MIGHT BE SAFER FROM THE KUNG FLU AT HOME.

BEEN RAINING AGAIN, BUT IT SEEMS TO BE CLEARING OFF NOW, I EVEN SAW A BRIEF BURST OF SUNSHINE :-)

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY, GOT THE GUNSTOCK STAINED TO THE LEVEL I WANT IT, NOW FOR THE FINISH. THOUGHT I HAD SOME STOCK FINISH BUT I DON'T.

TEE, WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST: I WANT A NON-GLOSS OIL FINISH.
I HAVE USED A PRODUCT CALLED TRUOIL IN THE PAST, HAVE TO TAKE THE SHINE OFF IT AND IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO DRY. I'D PROBABLY HAVE TO GO TO TULSA TO GET IT.

THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS ARE MAKING IT PLAIN THAT THEIR VIRUS RESPONSE IS TO DESTROY TRUMP AND ADVANCE THEIR SOCIALIST AGENDA. CAN'T LET AN EPIDEMIC GO TO WASTE, THEY SAY.

I tend to agree with this. I never had an answer for the nature vs nurture debate until I had my own kids. I could see their personality quirks and nuances from the time they are babies. Pretty amazing, actually.


IT REALLY IS!

CLOUDY AND DRIPPY AGAIN IN THE IND'N NATIONS RAIN FORREST.
THE CHEROKEES ARE THINKING ABOUT MOVING TO NEVADA TO DRY OUT.

YESTERDAY TURNED OUT TO BE A NICE DAY WITH SOME SUNSHINE. NICEST THING WAS A GOOD NEIGHBOR WHO FIRED UP HIS OLD BOBCAT AND REPAIRED THE ROAD IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE AND OUR WASHED OUT DRIVEWAY. TOLD HIM IF HE WOULD RUN FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER I'D VOTE FOR HIM :-)

OUR PRESENT CC HAS FALLEN OFF BADLY IN ROAD MAINTENANCE AROUND GRISHEIM. SOME ONE SAID THEY LOST THEIR MOTOR GRADER OPERATOR. GOOD BLADE MEN ARE HARD TO COME BY AND IN HIGH DEMAND AMONG HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION OUTFITS.

NO CHURCH TODAY, NOW I WON'T KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS FOR A WEEK AT LEAST---

So he came and got me this afternoon and with a little experience and a couple of my tools we were able to get it swapped out with little trouble and only a few swear words. I showed him how and let him do most of the work. Eager to learn and no arguing. How do I teach my kids to do that?


I'M NOT SURE YOU TEACH THEM, JUST LET THEM BE WHO THEY'RE GOING TO BE. KEEP A LOOSE REIN, DON'T MICROMANAGE, DON'T HOVER. MAKE RULES FOR BEHAVIOR SIMPLE AND CLEAR. PAT THEM WHEN THEY DO WELL, SWAT THEM WHEN THEY ARE BAD. INSOFAR AS YOU CAN WITHOUT DOING THEM DAMAGE, LET THEM SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS.

COLD IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING, BUT THE SUN IS MAKING A WELCOME EFFORT TO SHINE THRU THE CLOUDS. THE CHEROKEES REJOICE.

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY, THINK I'LL FILL UP ALL CARS, TRUCK, MOWERS, AND GAS CANS WHILE GAS IS CHEAP.

PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN FROM UP THE ROAD CAME BY YESTERDAY TO CHECK ON THE OLD FOLKS AND ANOTHER NEIGHBOR HAS BEEN CALLING DARLING WIFE TO SEE IF WE NEEDED ANYTHING. NICE, BUT NOT MUCH CHANCE WE'LL BE FORGOTTEN WITH DW'S TELEPHONE ADDICTION :-)

NOTHING VERY INTERESTING TO READ LATELY, JUST "WHO DONE IT'S". IF IT WOULD JUST DRY OUT AND WARM UP I COULD DO SOME STUFF OUTSIDE; COME ON, SUMMER!

TOOK THE TOMATO IN FOR A CHECKUP, THE INTERIOR LIGHTS WEREN'T COMING ON. I HAD CHECKED THE WRONG FUSE; TURNED OUT IT WAS THE ONE RIGHT NEXT TO IT THAT WAS BAD. PRICE WAS RIGHT, FREE. WITH THREE OLD CORVETTES I GET A "FREQUENT FLYER" DISCOUNT :-)

NOTHING TO DO BUT SAND SOME MORE. OH JOY---

SEEMS THE LEFT WING POLITICAL CORRECTIVISTS HAVE THEIR PANTIES IN A WAD OVER CALLING THE CHINA VIRUS CHINESE. ARE WE TO ADD A SACRED NATIONALITY TO OUR SACRED MINORITY, SACRED DISEASE, AND SACRED SEX PERVERSION?

ME, I THINK THE KUNG FLU IS THE BEST NAME OF ALL.

On another note, in case you all missed Good Morning Ameria - this is in my home town. The family is one of those 'couponers' and has a ton of stuff stocked up at their house - so they used it in this fashion. We all thought it was humorous and the price is the same for a normal dozen roses. Same vase, same greenery, sme everything just tp instead of flowers. Of course there's the haters and the trolls on their FB page. One lady from Minnesota bashing him. There's always one lol

THERE ARE IN THIS COUNTRY A CLASS OF PEOPLE HAUNTED BY THE POSSIBILITY THAT SOMEWHERE SOMEONE IS LAUGHING AND HAVING FUN.

ANOTHER DISMAL, GRAY, DRIPPY DAY IN THE NATIONS. HEAVY RAIN LAST NIGHT WHEN EVERYTHING WAS ALREADY SATURATED. THIS IS SO TIRESOME.

STILL WORKING ON THE GUN STOCK, OFF AND ON, I LIKE SANDING ALMOST AS MUCH AS TEE LIKES PLUMBING AND DON'T STICK WITH IT LONG.

OSU HAS CANCELED CLASSES FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SEMESTER, GONE TO ON LINE ONLY. #3 GRANDSON IS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER, ASIDE FROM THE LACK POF FEEDBACK AND INTERACTION, HE'S STUCK WITH A RESIDENTIAL LEASE. #4 IS HOME DUE TO U OF A SHUT DOWN, DON'T KNOW WHEN OR IF THEY WILL RESTART CLASSES.

MAJOR CONCERN NOW IS #1 GRANDDAUGHTER DOING HER CLINICAL ROTATIONS. IF THOSE ARE CANNED IT WILL BE A MAJOR DISRUPTION, AND THEN THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF INFECTION :-(

HI JOHN---

OVERCAST, BREEZY, AND COOL IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING, ANOTHER GRAY DAY. I HAVE NOT EMPTIED THE RAIN GAUGE SINCE THIS ROUND OF THE MONSOON STARTED; THERE IS THREE AND A HALF INCHES IN IT. THE CHEROKEES ARE WELL SOAKED AND THE CHOCTAWS EVEN WORSE.

I NEED TO HIT THE VA HOSPITAL, MY HEARING AIDS ARE ON THE FRITZ, BUT I HATE TO ENTANGLE MYSELF WITH THE BUREAUCRACY AGAIN. I NEVER HAD MUCH PATIENCE AND MOST OF THAT HAS BEEN USED UP ;-)

I'M BEGINNING TO THINK WE SHOULD SIMPLY EMBARGO CHINA.

THAT'S ME, "THEY" KNOW WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT ME ALREADY. I'M NOT ABOUT TO ADD ANY INFO. LIKE HENRY VIII "IF MY CAP KNEW MY MIND I WOULD CAST IT IN THE FIRE"

WHAT I KNOW OF MY ANCESTRY IS ENGLISH/SCOTCH-IRISH. I DO HAVE A RATHER IRISH TEMPER ;-) AND THE USUAL CELTO-TEUTONIC MIX: PRONE TO LEAP BEFORE LOOKING AND TOO STUBBORN TO BACK OUT WHEN LANDING IN THE SHIT.

MERRY ST PAT'S DAY TO YOU ALL!

ANOTHER GRAY DAY IN THE NATIONS, OVERCAST, 50, SLIGHT BREEZE. COULD BE WORSE, AT LEAST IT'S NOT RAINING AT THE MOMENT.

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY, MAYBE WORK ON THE GUN STOCK, BUT I'LL HAVE TO GO GET SOME MORE SANDPAPER.

WITH ALL THIS WET WE'LL HAVE A BUMPER CROP OF TICKS AND MOSQUITOES.
