I’m back!  Have a donut!  Some are about ten days old, but still palatable.

  1. I got great relief from a Physical Therapist who worked me over and dismissed me in less than a month from a pain for which I had gone to ER and three or four doctor.  Finally one recommended Physical Therapy.  Neither of them milked Medicare needlessly.
  2. Does your life seem like a frustrating puzzle?  I saw a man putting a picture puzzle together at the Senior Center.  It was all yellow—not shades of yellow; all yellow with a black spot about the size of a nickel.  That would be a monotonous life!  Makes some suffering even look good—of course, if the suffering is not too intense or too long.  Our “Jesus” guide helps along those lines.  That’s the joy in the monotony.  Remember Job’s words:   Well, I shut my mouth.  I thought I had known you; now I know. That’s what God looks like when you exit the valley.

3.  “Patio” evenings have been so nice.  Not much bothered by mosquitoes.  If I notice an itch, I hope it is from a mosquito.  Why?  Because I don’t want poison ivy or Shingles!  Itch, itch.   Sammy got a Shingles shot—$180 dollars.  Two required, $360.  I’m not going to get it.  I’ll buy that stuff online “End The Suffering Of Shingles Within One Hour With Emuaid.”   Does anyone know whether the One Hour gets rid of the shingles or does it kill you within one hour?  Maybe I shouldn’t take the chance for 360 bucks.

 4. Granddad’s Bible margin notes: Bed too short Isaiah 28:20 and filthy rags Isaiah 64:6, What is your bed? Where do you get your rest?  In a bed that is too short?  National defense, insurance policies, money, intelligence, family name, famous friends, your good works? You can’t depend on your own righteousness which is as filthy rags. The only way to be born of the spirit is to be born again! You’ll never have security in your own self-made bed.

5.  Covid Alert:  No one says listen to Dr. Fauchi anymore.  They say talk to your doctor.  She/he is Science! SCIENCE! Got it? That’s Biden’s ruse. Explains everything except what changes. I recognize changing science if it occurs over a space of decades or so, but changing several times a week! I don’t buy it!

6. Oh, yes.  My doctor.  The one who writes my prescription for 30 pills for Potassium and prescribes two per day for me.  I’ve been asking repeatedly for her to okay refills for 90 days.  Does she care that that sends me to Walmart Pharmacy every two weeks? Maybe she needs a math lesson….or does she expect my demise and not want insurance to be out all that money.

7. Want to see a girl with guts?  Watch Carli Lloyd refuse to take a knee when her teammates did so to protest “racism” in America.  If you want to protest racism in America, go protest in front of a Planned Parenthood facility in a predominately black neighborhood.  Save some black lives.  Remember they matter.

8.  One of those aborted black babies might have been the one who could have found a cure for cancer. But who cares about cancer anymore since we have Covid? Perhaps someone in the CDC should check mortality rates.

9.  I’ve joined the ranks of those who have mostly quit watching TV news for the news.  For entertainment sometimes. I get my news from Epoch via e-mail. 

10.  I bought a hearing aid.  Sure is a pain to put in my ears but greatly rewarded when I do so.  Bought it at Sam’s Club.  Very helpful and kind specialist.

11. I got great relief from a Physical Therapist who worked me over and dismissed me in less than a month from a pain for which I had gone to ER and three or four doctors   Finally one recommended Physical Therapy.  Neither of them milked Medicare needlessly.

12. I apologize for the irregular numbering and paragraphing. I can’t put a space between one and two. Why did the whole margin increase when I started number three? I tried writing it on Publisher page and copying over here. Same problems. Ugg.

13.   Remember last time you only got eleven donuts because of inflation, but I back to 13 just in case you find some stale ones.  Perhaps the shop was closed too long.

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...

    Oh it’s good to have you back. I love your honesty and humor and missed both while you took time off. Life is too funny for us not to have a hearty laugh about it once in a while. Glad you’re feeling better.

  2. So glad to see you made it home— I had to read your post to Gregory— he laughed like I did!

  3. oneta hayes says:

    I hope you all like #1 and #11. I see I have two donuts that are the same flavor! I guess my original #11 got stuck in the Publisher box. I dig it up for next donut sale.

  4. Lakshmi Bhat says:

    I liked your post 🙂 Glad you are better. Take care.

  5. Frank Hubeny says:

    When I used to eat donuts I didn’t care how old they were. Three cheers for Carli Lloyd for refusing to take a knee to the BLM idols. And good point associating racism with Planned Parenthood.

  6. oneta hayes says:

    Thanks, Frank. Glad you didn’t mind my stale ones. You are a fantastic commenter. You note details so well.

  7. Faye says:

    I’LL have a stale donut thank you. Sitting with you for a spell is joy in my morning. Your home spun truth in what you pen is such a blessing. Glad you are back! (all alignments stack up down here in OZ as well. ) bending the knee is not justified for any lesser cause than the HOLINESS of ALMIGHTY GOD, and the sanctity of ALL human life is in HIS REALM. Violate it to your peril.

      Sending your order via UPS. You should receive it in three months in accordance with the efficiency of the USA Government. Teasing a bit. 😀 Someday, perhaps not so long away, we will have a new King and a new Kingdom and justice will be done. Good night, or Good Day.

  8. Salvageable says:

    I enjoyed all of these. I have several score of puzzles in storage, all of which I have enjoyed in the past. A few years ago I took up digital virtual puzzles online, but then I lost my connection. But one of my favorite puzzles in storage is all red. Not even a black dot in the center. Another is all white, and it is neither a rectangle nor a circle; it is an irregular shape meant to resemble a puddle of spilled milk. J.

    • oneta hayes says:

      I might tackle a 100 piece puzzle as you have described. I have taken 500 piece puzzles to the Senior Center and asked the “puzzlers” to put them together. Then I go pick them up, whole and put together, divide into quarter sections and place each section in a zip loc bag. That breaks them down into projects which we can complete at family gatherings. I would say we are not rated high on that skill. Do you do the rubik cube?

  9. shoreacres says:

    I sure do enjoy your commentary. I was lucky enough to have an orthopedic surgeon who passed me on to a sports therapist when I was having work-related spine problems. A month of learning how to do some exercises, and all was well. Sometimes, the body knows what to do — it just needs a little help.

    Have you ever tried Jigsaw Planet? It’s rather fun. You can choose a nice, simple one with fewer pieces to learn how to do it. You move the pieces around with your cursor. I believe you even can turn one of your own photos into a jigsaw. It’s free, too.

  10. oneta hayes says:

    This DPT really worked me over. Mostly exercises, but he also pushed real hard with his thumb on the side of my hip to massage the muscles which, I guess, stretch across the hip joint. He sure knew what he was doing. I was impressed with his knowledge and efficiency.
    I have only done the simple online picture puzzles. The kiddie type with the kids. Many pieces require more patience than I have. Maybe I should look at it as a way to develop that spiritual gift of patience. It would be more fun to get patience that way than to achieve patience by way of picking up Sammy’s shoes and socks.

  11. Reading your posts are always so much fun, Oneta. You have a wonderful of making anything sound funny. 🙂 So glad you’re back. Turns out I was gone too so I’ve missed much of what’s been going on in your life. But I’m glad you’re doing well and seem to be back to your feisty self! I also get most of my news from Epoch Times. So much more informative and trustworthy than mainstream media. Love and hugs to you from Arizona! ❤

    • oneta hayes says:

      Thanks so much for taking time to let me have a glimpse of what happens in your life. Arizona, huh? You have been making headlines there. I have just finished Ezekiel and Daniel with some interesting ties to the Gog and Magog predictions but I do not consider myself much of a end-times authority. I do know enough to recognize a lot of events that indicate there will not be many more years of governments as we know them. I appreciate your kind words to me. God is amazing. How in the world he turned this timid soul of mine into this Blogger Me is startling to me. May you be blessed in your ministry.

      • Yes, we’re making news in all kinds of ways aren’t we? 🙂 I really haven’t studied much about the Gog, Magog war. I’m interested, but it all seems kind of confusing to me and there are lots of opinions about it, which makes it even more confusing. I’m not even sure where it fits in the overall scheme of prophecy. But, I’m in agreement with you, I don’t think we have many more years of this world left. If I had to throw out a guess, I’d say no more than 10.. perhaps less.

        Well, my dear friend, I don’t know how He turned your timid soul into such a prolific ‘Blogger You’, but I’m glad He did. 🙂 I enjoy your blog very much. Thank you for your blessings and I’m sending them right back to you. ❤

  12. Brilliant mix of humor and TRUTH! Totally with you in everything you said. God bless you and may your common sense and wisdom prevail over Biden and all these covid “experts” who clash, disagree, and change the science hour after hour.
