2020 July 04 Independence Day

SaturdayWelcome, family and friends to our daily journal.Breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast. Followed by several games of Fast Track.

Our local town cancelled all of the Independence Day activities.Several years, and several years ago, I looked dashing in my Uncle Sam hat. That spray-in hair color in 2014 was a bad idea. After repeated shampoos, it still had a red tinge. Then I used Dawn dish soap and it came out nicely. By the way, the heat was so floppy that I had to stuff it was paper to make it stand up in true stove pipe fashion.No news is good news. I received three notifications today that there was nothing (bad) to report. Somehow lack of bad news doesn’t always equate to good news.Speaking of news, I grow weary of hearing “black lives matter”. Not because I disagree with it, but because it seems so self evident to me. All lives matter.True, were my skin tone a shade or two darker, I might see things through a different life-filter.On a related note, have you ever noticed that when the news sources report on a person of color, they always mention it? They feel compelled to add the modifiers “black, Asian, Hispanic” However, if the person is “white” it is never mentioned. Wouldn’t it be nice if no race identifies were NEVER used? Will we ever realize there is ONE race, “human”?

We did nothing other than try to stay cool today. And that proved more difficult than expected. The air conditioner way running a lot and causing the circuit breaker to pop off. I kept raising the thermostat (finally setting it art 90° – the highest setting for the a/c).I may have to replace the breaker, because I don’t believe that it is carrying that much of a load.

  • See y’all again tomorrow. Stay safe. Remember, we love you.

y one o’clock it had reached seventy six and it was still completely blanketed in clouds

Today was the monthly luncheon for the 50+ group at Leander UMC. Today it was a soup and salad meal. Today we had a speaker from the Leander Parks and Recreation Office to talk about the planned new building for the senior center, to be opened in 2021. He also gave us information about the Active Adults program.

made some boiled eggs, after we returned home. Six minutes to cook perfect hardboiled eggs. Instapot hard boiled eggs are so easy to peel because the shell comes off in bigger pieces without taking part of the white with it. However, I found an even quicker and easier way to BLOW egg from the shell. Of course you are going to rinse the egg afterwards..

was fortunate to capture thus photograph when I did. This was the last that was seen of the sun.

Welcome to our daily journal! Send Mail to: TomAndEllaJournal@gmail.com

t is predicted to be cooler for the next couple of days. Then the highs will be in the upper sixties to lower seventies. The lows will be in the mid to low sixties. That should save on heating and cooling. Also, it should be good sleeping weather with the windows open. Sixty six degrees was our high for the .day

es there are clouds. However, they are not covering the sunrise. It is a white hot spotlight this morning.

ere is a photo of Ella hanging the Emperor’s New Clothes. Laundry day has descended upon us once again. It’s a shame that Ella decided to come with me to do laundry.

would have put everything in one of the huge machines that cost $8. Ella divided them between four $3 machines. None of our clothes are new enough to need to worry about color bleeding from one to another. They’ve all “bled” as much as they’ll ever bleed.

  • Ella posted: Another wash day. I’m not looking forward to this, but it is very necessary. But in going to do what I’ve done the last few trips. I’ll fold only what has to be folded. The rest will go home with us to be folded in the comfort of our recliners.

or lunch I fixed some beef and noodles with mixed veggies. Served with a baguette to sop up the broth. A quick and tasty meal.

RAILROAD DREAMS

My childhood home sat like a lighthouse upon a hill of green, overlooking the glistening ribbons of railroad tracks. Down the hill was a small, brown abandoned, yet not in disrepair, depot. In years gone by, passenger trains, filled with men in suits and ties, and women in dresses and hats, had traveled those tracks and stopped at that location, where some boarded and some debarked, beneath the now faded sign which reads “Prescott, pop. 212”.

However, times had changed and passages trains no longer traveled these rails. Only long trains, hauling freight, passed below on those steel rails and none had reason to stop at this tiny town.

When that unmistakable whistle blew, signaling that a train was approaching the crossing at the center of town, I would race through the waist-high grass and then slide down the sandy embankment to reach the tracks, ahead of the train’s arrival.

I loved to stand in the bright sunshine, and hear the crunch of the cinders underfoot along the track-siding and watch the trains. Usually two bright yellow engines, with black and red trim, were coupled back to back. Occasionally, for the longer, heavier loads, there were four of those big diesels. Then would come those endless cars carrying yellow corn and shiny black coal in open cars, then there were tank cars and boxcars full of mysteries, and last of all came the dull red caboose. I loved the caboose most of all.

Dreaming of traveling to far away exotic places, I would wave wildly as the caboose came into view and continue to wave until it had rounded beyond the curve, and was out of sight. Often the men in that last car would see me and wave back at me, possibly remembering how, in their youth, they had also stood along the tracks and waved as they too dreamed of faraway places.

These are our nearest neighbors.

od’s house light is dimming. Soon his starry courtesy lights will begin to flicker on, to guide us through the night to come.

will take forty one degree mornings everyday instead of twenty nine degrees.

he pre-dawn sky had some color in it. However, it had pretty much disappeared by the time the sun arrived.

.

ill and Karen invited Ella and I to their home to play Fast Track today. We played for games in two hours. Karen and I were partners and we won all four games.

peaking of Fast Track, the three game boards, that Ella ordered from Duane, arrived today. They were sitting on the deck, when we arrived home.


I saw an ad today for a prescription medicine to help people whose eyelashes have stopped growing! There are people all over the world dying of all types of infectious diseases an. d we have a medication that helps when your eyelashes stop growing?

It makes me sick to think that I live in a society that cares more about peoples eyelashes than real people dying because of infectious diseases, starvation and crappy living conditions.

We are a nation of riches. We have an excess of ability, an excess of talent, an excess of wealth … and this is what we do with it?

No wonder Jesus said that it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

This isn’t the American dream. This is the American nightmare.

2020 February 08 Saturday in Liberty Hill, Texas http://TomAndEllaJournal.WordPress.comot as much sleep as I had hoped for, but it gave me a chance to view the moon.There was no worry of our water supply freezing again last night. And with the sky so clear It should warm nicely today.couldn’t see any stars but the full moon was so bright that all the werewolves must have been restless over night. I really need to stop watching old horror films.he sun came up nice and bright. I had hoped of another sunny day with passive solar heating.owever, look at that bank of dark clouds coming up from the south. They are moving like they’re being chased by the devil himself.nd a few moments latter, the clouds caught up to the sun and swallowed it whole. I hope they developed heart burn.few of us gathered to bag cookies for the annual Grandies** Valentine’s Day cookie sale at church. It only took about twenty minutes for three of us to split about twelve dozen cookies into bags of two each. This is one of several fund raisers for our group. It suit supports our ministries.nce again it was laundry day. Three washer loads and two dryers. As usual I took a short nap while Ella kept an eye on the laundry.fter the clothes were washed, mostly folded, and packed away for transport home, it was time for lunch. We couldn’t decide on what to eat. When undecided, go to a buffet. We went to Star Buffet.fter a leisurely lunch, we headed toward home. We didn’t get far before we were turned around by the police. Traffic was stopped at a railroad crossing. Other than the fact that the gates were down and the lights flashing at the crossing, we couldn’t see anything. We got turned around but we were in very heavy stop and go traffic for a half hour to forty five minutes before we reached a place where we could resume normal speed. I don’t suppose we will ever mote what was going on.progression toward sunset with fast moving clouds. It made for some interesting photographs.IF YOU ENJOYED MY JOURNAL ENTRY, PLEASE CLICK THE LIKE BUTTON, LEAVE A COMMENT AND/OR FOLLOW.

2020 February 07 Friday

2020 February 07 Friday in Liberty Hill, Texas http://TomAndEllaJournal.WordPress.comell, I made it to sleep before midnight and slept straight through until my bladder demanded that I get up. That’s not too bad.o more below freezing nights, at least for the next ten days. Although it is not all sunshine and roses. Five out of the next ten days have rain in the forecast. I personally could do without the rain. However, the city water supplies, lakes, rivers, ponds, and stock tanks will welcome the refill.nother burnt orange pre-dawn with the sun just barely below the treeline.s the sun works it way northward, it will soon be behind that light pole that is in most morning photos taken from my deck. I could take photos without it if I got warmly dressed and walked a hundred feet or so to the south. However, I’m just not that ambitious. It’s just so much easier to step out on the deck and snap a picture.

Now for something completely different

MAKING A BUDDY BURNER

From Wikipedia: A Buddy Burner is a simple stove made from a can and part of a corrugated paper box. It is usually fueled by paraffin wax but other fuels, such as boiled butter, animal fat or diesel fuel, can be used. It is usually used for cooking but can also provide heat. To make a burner, you will need a shallow can such as tuna, lots of corrugated cardboard, pencil or pen, sharp knife or scissors, needle nose pliers, and a small candle (optional). You will also need melted wax. You may use canning wax (paraffin) or melted candles. DO NOT MELT WAX OVER OPEN FLAME!!!Use the can as a guide for the width of the cardboard strips.Cut the cardboard into stripsCut the candle the same height as the strips so that the wick will protrude above the stove top. It was a lucky coincidence that I could cut mine in two.Trim the cut candle so that the wick it’s exposed.Using the needle nose pliers, begin forming a coil of cardboard.Watch my video on YouTube where I demonstrate how to wind the cardboard and insert the candle. https://youtu.be/vK0Vgw2rTqMInsert the coil into the can and the candle into the middle. You are now ready to pour the melted wax into the can.Once again, do NOT heat the wax over an OPEN FLAME. The molten wax becomes quite volatile. Some people say to use a double boiler. However, because the wax is nearly impossible to get out of the pan on clean up, I would rather heat it in a disposable can sitting in a pot of boiling water.oday Ella and I attended a Valentine’s Day Luncheon at the Leander UMC where the 50+ meetings and game days are held. This is an annual event held on the Friday before Valentine’s Day. Since next Friday is Valentine’s, this was the Friday before. It was all fancied up with cloth tables clothes, table center pieces, hors d’oeuvres, food served in courses, and a fancy dessert of pound cake slices topped with mixed berries and whipped cream.fter the meal there was a game. A slideshow projected photos of movie star couples and we had to write the names of the couples, the name of the movie, and/or their characters’ names. I knew something about all of the movies except “An Officer And A Gentleman” which I’ve never seen.

2020 January 28 Tuesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

loudy isn’t quite right. It is foggy. It rained overnight, not much, but enough to leave some puddles. I believe the fog is due to the rain not removing all of the moisture from the air.

ith the clouds and the fog in the air, there was no sunrise today.

ight around ten o’clock the sun began playing peek-a-boo. It would show through for a few minutes and then crawl back under the blanket of clouds.

Today we went to the senior center in Leander for lunch. It is really sad to see it under used. It used to be so busy that occasionally they had to turn people away because there wasn’t enough room. Today there were only five including Ella and me. If It weren’t for the fact that the Meals On Wheels and Head Start lunches are prepared here, this facility would probably be closed down.

argarita’s, a local restaurant, was helping with a fundraiser for our church’s restoration of the 150 year old chapel. By presenting a coupon, the restaurant is donating 20% of the bill to the fund. Tonight only and from 4 to 9. Not surprising that, a lot of our friends were there tonight.

God bless and g’nite

e slept in today. Therefore there was no morning photo. My Very Fit Pro’s battery ran out overnight which means I don’t have my sleep results either.

have tried unsuccessfully multiple times to get photos our the buds on our tree. I solved it by snapping off a small twig.

he Georgetown senior center was our only outing today. We has chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, green beans, mandarin oranges, and a little cup of gravy. Outside of Texas, does anybody else use gravy as a dipping sauce?

2020 January 10 Friday

2020 January 10 Friday in Liberty Hill, Texasy son, do not lose sight of these things. Use priceless wisdom and foresight. Then they will mean life for you, and they will grace your neck. Then you will go safely on your way, and you will not hurt your foot. When you lie down, you will not be afraid. As you lie there, your sleep will be sweet. (Proverbs 3:21-24)I need some of that sweet sleep. Do I have priceless wisdom? I have a lot of knowledge which is not the same thing. And foresight? I have better than average insight, which is why I know that knowledge and wisdom are in no way the same and that wisdom is far more to be desired.f I truly had foresight and wisdom, I wouldn’t have made so many wrong turns on the road of life.

ep! It’s cloudy alright and kinda dark for a sunrise photo, don’t ya think? I expect it will lighten as we go throughout the day.

inds of fifteen miles per hour with gusts over twenty miles per hour has our RV rocking this morning.50 Plus soup luncheon at Leander UMC. The speaker this month was the marketing director ofSenior Circle at a local hospital. Her name is Mary Clare Spear. The soup was okay and, if I hadn’t been in so much pain, her talk may have been more interesting to me.nce we were done at the 50 Plus meeting, we took the short drive to Wal-Mart to pick up our prescriptions. Since we were there, I also purchased more milk and more eggs.was be glad to be home where I could be uncomfortable in the comfort of my recliner.And we were home before the storm came through.he storm is over and the Moon is shining bright..God bless and g’nite
