BAKER’S DOZEN – JULY 12, 2021

1. Time for me to share my bits of humor, satire, wisdom, fun, and faith.  Ready?

2. My sister, Karen, and my daughter-in-law, ReNee,  went shopping. ReNee had a couple extra things she needed to take care of.  So Karen and I sat in the car at one place where ReNee said she had to go in and have her legs shaved. I thought “What new thing will these young people do next” but I wasn’t bothered, after all she is barely fifty. I just thought there must be a new method or a new shaving cream – something she wanted to check out. It wasn’t long before she came out with a lamp shade!  I said, “A lamp shade?  I thought you said you were going in to get your legs shaved!”  She promised to take me to check for a hearing aid next week!

3. In Granddad’s Bible he wrote in the margin by James 1:12 “Rock Kangaroo Shoes and Stetson Hats” I guess he didn’t think those would hold a candle to a crown of life!   James 1:12 “…he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”

4. Comment by Linda at shoreacres:  “The sooner we learn the world isn’t a perfectly safe place, but that we can live in it safely anyway, the better off we are.”   Linda at Shoreacres  https://shoreacres.wordpress.com/2021/06/19/stilll-working-after-all-these-years/#comment-213470

5. “The righteous who walks in his integrity, blessed are his children after him.”  Prov. 20:7  Does that mean some righteous don’t walk uprightly?  If that is so, no wonder our children forsake the ways of those who claim righteousness.  We had better put in practice to walk the way we talk!

6. That brings me to another Grandad note by John 14:8 “Phillip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.” He has written “Church, let us see Jesus and we are satisfied.” Then he referred to Luke 12:21, which says, “So is he that layeth up treasures for himself, and is not rich toward God.” There he has written “full barns stop mule from braying, not so, with souls.”

7. Do I have new political wise cracks?  Nothing that tops Biden’s great insurance plan against being ruled “incompetent.”  Even I prefer him to Kamala and Nancy.  I think I feel some compassion for him.  Like compassion I feel for Haman as he built the gallows on which he was hung.

8. Am I likely to change my mind and get the covid vaccine.  No way!  Every day I am happy to wake up well and thank God for that.  If I get sick I will trust Him in my sickness.  But I will not willingly set myself up for being sick—especially not this sickness “unto death” that they talk about. 

9. I would like to see the money they spend in promoting the vaccine being used to develop better methods of treatment.

10.  I need to get my hair cut.  I hate to do that—makes me look like an old woman.  Worse!  Last time I looked like an old man!

11.   Have you  noticed how small tuna cans are becoming?  When I make a tuna salad sandwich, I have to add two eggs in order to get enough to spread on a piece of bread.  Granted, I do like it spread pretty thick but it tastes more like egg salad than tuna salad.

12.   I no longer offer number 13.  It is the result of inflation. 

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. Hahaha. 😄 I had fun reading plus nice points of learning.

  2. atimetoshare.me says:

    Thanks for the Monday morning chuckles 🥸🥸

  3. Faye says:

    Thank you. I had a few welcome chuckles that have brightened my day, Blessings!

    I have noticed the smaller tuna cans! We have to keep our eye on them these days. Cereal’s done the same thing, and so have other canned products. If you look closely at a can of salmon, you’ll see that it tapers at the bottom now, and holds about an ounce and a half less.

    • oneta hayes says:

      I hadn’t noticed the salmon cans. They must save a can for each ten cans they sell. In the long run, that is quite significant. Maybe 15%. I’m pulling estimates from the sky. I guess the reason we notice gas prices is because they haven’t managed these kinds of shenanigans with gallons. A gallon of milk is still a gallon, but a loaf of bread varies all over the spectrum.

    “I would like to see the money they spend in promoting the vaccine being used to develop better methods of treatment.”

    From your lips to “the powers that be” ears! Oh, if it could make that much (simple) sense – think how many lives could have been saved. Only God knows…..

    So glad I found you! God’s speed Oneta!

    • oneta hayes says:

      I went over to visit you and left a follow. I see you use a lot of links and videos. I don’t do that much but I will be glad to keep up with your input. I’m definitely a Trump admirer also. I’m bothered about the children with the Covid in your area. What is that about? Since you came in on a Baker’s Dozen, you have a pretty good picture of what I am about. 😀

  7. Clever and brilliant! Thank you. And I SO agree with you about the vaccine! Praise the Lord for every new day, and every day that He keeps us in health and peace and is our shield from sickness and disease. God bless you.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Thank you. Will you be able to hold out against the bullying about getting the vaccine? If I were alone in my family, I would probably cave in and get it even though I don’t trust it. The “vaccinated” population sure can pile on the guilt. I’m still not sure some of us should be around to pick up the pieces. 😀 I’m working on another Baker’s Dozen. Might be up tomorrow. Come have some more.
