Fly Me to the Moon (or anywhere else)

I heard about some of this “mess”.  I decided to keep out of it until it stared me in the face.  Well, this article stared me in the face.  Great article.  I couldn’t find a “Reblog” button, so here I give you a link…enjoy.

The flight incident of late (man being denied flight and detained) 

PS – just as a funny aside, hit publish and when I looked at the time, it was 9:11am…coincidence?  (yeah, probably)

Namaste,

Got Talent? They do!

For the most part, BGT and AGT have left us.  I don’t believe either show is on TV anymore, but they wowed us and humbled us for about 10 years.  That’s a long time!

So, rather than just say goodbye, Youtube has given them both a rather permanent place to live.  I love going back and watching my favs.  For your enjoyment, I took a little of the work out of sifting through all the posts on Youtube.  Here are 2 sets, around 10 each, running a total of about 1 hour.  They are among the best and I couldn’t wait to share them with you…

First set of 10 

Second Set of 10 (Golden Buzzer)

Enjoy,

Namaste,

Spring is Here…Love is in …. heck it ain’t here!

 

I have mentioned before that I am on a couple of dating sites.  I have been talking to this lady since early last week.  In the first conversation, I wrote.  She wrote back, interested, then I didn’t hear from her again.  I wrote back making sure she was okay.  She had met a guy and thought it was gonna be someone she wanted to try with.  That’s fine.  I always want people to be happy.  I told her good luck and if it didn’t work out, drop me a note.  That never happens, btw.  I am not dumb.  It’s just a nice way to leave the ball in their court.  She writes back the next night, telling me he was a loser.  I asked her if she still wanted to go out.  Here is the conversation following the early pleasantries…  What I want is for all of you to read carefully and see if I was wrong or if I was being played or what…  Those of you who know me, know I would write and apologize if I was wrong…

Have eaten there – lived in @@@@@@@@ for over @@ years.
Have not been to the BBQ place.
Have eaten @@@@@ since college and 18, kinda miss it.
I do enjoy frozen shrimp, tacos, and chicken.
I worked at Pizza Hut for awhile, so do like them a lot, as well as Cracker Barrel (my fav).
Watched “50 First Dates” and really liked some of his other stuff, but I don’t like some of his movies…I love Keanu Reeves and Anything with Jessica Alba in it.
How do you feel about Thursday this week for meeting?
Scott
PS – I have a blog I write and@@@@@ is another blogger. She writes books and lives the @@@@@@@ very well.

Thursday could be good…?

It sounds good to me and it is looking good on my schedule. You think about it and let me know whether you wish lunch or dinner as i don’t know your schedule. @@@@@ is fine for the meal unless you want something else.

Hmm, I don’t remember – do we need a reservation?

I don’t think so…I haven’t had to make them before. Wow I had a reeeally long day at work, then went singing and stayed out WAY later than usual. I hope you had a really good day. Might want to call and see if they are open through the week for lunch, really not sure? I know they are on the weekends. I can give them a call tomorrow and find out.

Scott

That would be great or we can just go Saturday for lunch. It’s really up to you. My schedule is pretty flexible at the moment.
Let me know. Sounds like fun. Singing? Karaoke? What song(s) did you do?

So today is Thurs – we could have dinner then go for some singing if you’re interested?

Scott

I didn’t’ hear from you last night and I have now made plans for tonight.
Are you up for Saturday lunch? I am fine with also going for singing, but I may just listen – been quite awhile.

Oh wow, really? I was having a terrible headache yesterday, my son came over, fixed us some steaks for dinner and actually stayed until around until midnite-he never stays that late, think he was worried bout his mama..hadnt had a headache like that in @@ years or so. But you and I had plans all week, well, thought so anyway. Guess you werent THAT interested, I wish you the best. Tryna find a man who is good to his word isn’t easy, thats for sure. Good luck in all you do.

Scott

Hmm, ok, but if you look back, things were never settled…
It’s fine. I didn’t think you were all that interested either…this kind of says it all.
Not mad, just disappointed.
Good Luck to you, too.


Can’t wait to hear from you all.

Namaste,

Scott

 

I Sit in the Corner – Revisited

I Sit in the Corner

Years ago, I wrote a poem and though it didn’t receive accolades, I love it very much.  It is listed in my history markers to the left, but I wanted to revisit it and let you read if you haven’t.

By Scott L Vannatter – 07/05/12
I sit in the corner, a ragged doll,
No bones, no frame, no peace of mind.
Using a nail to scratch the floor
To make a difference, for one to find.

I sit in the corner, a woolen cloth,
Just feeding moths as I slowly die.
Once I was used to cover a toy
A shiny doll, cherished so high.

I sit in the corner, now an old box
My insides poured out; I tossed aside.
Used for holding treasures dear
A doll and blanket did I hide.

I sit in the corner, crumpled and torn
Wrapping paper of colors so bright
Covering a box filled with toys bought new
To give a child a time filled with light.

I sit in the corner, growing old and grey
Ignored by most my time spent all
Did my duties and worked and helped
Now I feel just like a doll.

 

Namaste,

Scott

My Year (and still going)!

Well, here we are to almost Christmas 2016!  I am still thinking back in April how I never thought we would make it here.  The year has been eventful, and for, those who are new or need catching up, here is a fairly brief summary.

The year has been kinda tough on all of us.  Major points:

  1. My Sister has cancer.  I refuse to give it a capital “C”.  It doesn’t deserve it.  She been taking Chemo for many weeks and is over 1/2 done.  I am simply glad to have her around.  She, too, has a big following on FB and I am often amazed at just how many people care and talk to and about her.
  2.  Dad passed in July after a long year of mostly being in the Nursing Home.  He had fallen twice in the last few years and surgery was not an option because of his missing kidney and low-functioning in the one that remained.  He did not care for his diet and often (really often) refused the food to have them bring him something he was “not supposed” to have.  What do you tell an 83 year old of sound mind?  We just let him enjoy himself.  He was really missed by a lot of people.  He earned the name “Candy Man”  or “Kiss Man” because he would take Hershey Chocolate Kisses with him to pass out to the “mostly” females at restaurants and such.  The local Cracker Barrel group actually told me how much they missed him!
  3. I have been fighting my diabetes for about 7 years now.  That and my blood pressure led to my stroke in May of 2010.  This year I went through some rough times, both with Dad and Sis.  I ate off the charts, giving up nearly 2 years of wonderful blood sugar via vegan dieting.  It was actually low enough that, many mornings, I would wake up and have to eat something sweet and fast because it had dropped to under 60 (normal being 110 and normal diabetic about 120).  At present, my blood pressure is good (great) at 117/73 average.  I am now working out 2x a week at Planet Fitness (a really great place!), which fits even my tight budget.  The diabetes makes it difficult to lose weight or build muscle, so I have now declared war on it.  I have done my research online and read extensively.  I have found what I believe to be the best defense and offense for this bad situation.  My new diet/lifestyle begins with a protein shake-based cleanse followed by 2 months of strong high protein, low fat, low carb dieting.  Then, after that, I should see a dramatic drop in blood sugar and weight and an increase in muscle.  Sometime in the early spring I expect to reduce or illuminate my blood sugar drugs and testing (via Dr. of course).  It is my hope that by next Christmas I will be Diabetes free, down to a decent weight, have good muscle tone, and have, perhaps, stopped or reduced my blood pressure meds (that would stop this stupid leg swelling).  We shall see!  The diet started today about 5:30pm.  I know that cleansing over the holidays is no fun, but I want to get started!!!

I think that’s enough for a year.  I hope all are having a wonderful Holiday and may your Christmas be the most loving time and full of joy.

Namaste,

Scott
