Just checking In.....

Hello to the blogging world!    I have been away for so long.   It all seems new to me now to even post a photo.   Did Facebook take over?   I'm afraid so.   But I was wondering if I had any friends left in the blogging world.   If you would happen to see this....leave a comment.   The photo is a swinging bridge in Bluff City,  TN.   (my home town)

When I'm an old lady,  I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness...just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
Returning each deed.   Oh, they'll be so excited.
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues;
And I'll bounce on the furniture....wearing my shoes.
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out;
I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout;
When I'm an old lady and live with each kid)

When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their heads.
(When I;m an old lady and live with my kids)

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans, salad or meat;
I'll gag on my orka, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry....I'll run, if I'm able.
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll click,
I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud 'till the end of the day.
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh;
I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping;
And say with a groan,
"She's so sweet when she's sleeping."

A man was having so much sickness and he had gone to doctor after doctor.  None were able to find anything wrong with him. So finally he went to a doctor and the doctor asked him, "so you have good BM" and the man replied, "yes, every morning at 8:20 I have to go , no matter where I am....  at 8:20 I have to go to the bathroom.  well the doctor said he couldn't find anything wrong, but he would give him a shot of penicillin.  There were three little germs hiding in the man and when they heard the word , it scared them to death.  One little germ said, "I'm going up here and hide behind the heart."   The second little germ said, 'I'm going to hide behind the liver," and the third little germ said, " you all stick around if you want to,  I am taking that 8:20 out of here."

DOG TIRED.......

A few weeks ago an older tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.  I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.  He calmly came over to me.  I gave him a few pats on the head....he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall and curled up in the corner and fell asleep..  An hour later he went to the door and I let him out.  The next day he was back,  greeted me in my yard, walked inside and returned to the spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.  This continued off and on for about two weeks Curious, I pinned a note to his collar,  "I would like to find out who is the owner of this wonderful dog is and to ask you if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap."
   The next day he arrived for his nap with a different note pinned to his collar.  "He lives in a home with 6 children....2 under the age of 3.  He's trying to catch up on his sleep.   Can I come with him tomorrow?"
