Hi Frosty and friends.

Erod, sorry about the loss of your friend. '-( I lost a very dear friend a year and a half ago. It was natural causes, but totally sudden and unexpected. I still haven't gotten over it.

Frosty, last night I picked up the new mouse that my brother gave me, but haven't hooked it up yet. I also get multiple postings to WBs, but it's easy to delete the dupes. So far, I have not gotten multiple postings to the forums, though. Thankfully.

I don't follow pro sports, so maybe it's my imagination. But it seems to me that most of the pro athletes "gone wild" are football players. Domestic, child & animal abuse, fights and shootings outside bars and elsewhere, drunken driving, etc. etc.

It seems to me that the great elephant in the room is that football is inherently a violent sport. They either give or take "beatings" (ie, tackles). Not only does it teach that knocking down the opponents is the way to get ahead & win, but it also teaches players to suck up the pain and not complain. It's part of the sport.

My dad was a football player -- not pro, but HS and some college (he had a football scholarship). Later in life the lessons he learned from his coaches nearly killed him. He was in the hospital for a week before they diagnosed that he needed "emergency" surgery. His gall bladder was rotting inside of him. The doctors were amazed. They said that this is normally extremely painful, but my dad had not complained of the pain. My mom said it was b/c he'd learned from his coaches not to complain about pain. Suck it up and keep your mouth shut, or something to that effect, I'm sure.

Now that I think about it, there was another incident in the hospital many years prior, that probably also had to do with football coach teachings.

I do not want to make excuses for the inexcusable, but there might be more to it that we (as a society) should take a look at. I don't recall as many baseball, soccer or other pro athletes doing such things.

I think it is important for us to realize this b/c sports are touted as teaching children such wonderful values. But not all the values they teach are so wonderful, and the positive values can be learned through the arts, for example. It takes teamwork to put on a play, for example, w/o the violence and extreme competitiveness.

Good morning Frosty, Uncle, Pidgies & Friends,

Frosty, I'm with you about the kids who look up to these athletes; what's the message they're sending? As long as you're an athlete you are beneath the law? H--L NO ! FL's own Jameiss is in trouble AGAIN for shouting obscenities about women at the FSU campus' student lounge...and what are they doing to him for this behavior...he does not get to play the first half of tomorrow's first home game ! OH NO ! Give me a break !

I'm so fed up with the "entitlement" attitude !

That's my story and I'm sticking to it ! ! !

Blessings to all,
=)

Good evening.

Smothered Country Hash Rounds again. :))

Warming up today. 49* on up to 78*. I did a lot of errands today. Looks like I forgot to post anything yesterday. I even forgot to shut down the computer. I must have been really tired. Lol

Hope you had a nice Thursday . :)

Good to see your post Frosty...
The nerve of some Hawks, they just never give up.....
Abuse is abuse and it's uncalled for. No man should ever put his hands on a woman and a spanking is one thing but a switch on naked skin is over the top... Sickening it is.... But it's not just physical. Verbal abuse is abuse to and it affects a person's mind... Next Month is purple ribbon month for Domestic Violence month, I'm thinking about wearing a purple ribbon every day of the year. Raise awareness and something has to be done for sure. Like you said, it has been going on a long time, and I hate to say that I don’t believe it will ever end. But it could be curved....

Zoe's condition hasn’t improved but she's better than she was on Sunday.... Still fighting along....I hate to see her this way...

Basey-ball fever, have you? I hear roasted peanuts and crackerjacks is the cure...I know you are a fan for sure good luck with those tigers....

Be blessed, Be safe Love those you're with and have a great day all!

Hello Friends and Welcome! So good to see everyone again!!!
YES! It really is!! Have you squeezed your bird today? :P
I did! I see Uncle Peeper-reporter is squeezing too! Whoo-Hoo!
How-zit going , Uncle Peeper-Reporter ? :P Have a BEAUTIFUL Safe SEPTEMBER !

If you’re here for the first time, “Friend or Foe? I wanna know!” (Thanks, Rev!)
I got up Friday, (the 12th) and noticed no Pidgies were outside.
Hmmm. Sure didn’t take me long to figure out why: Mr. Cooper
Hawk was on TOP of the loft, screaming at the Pidgies, and
bouncing on the wire! Talk about weird looking! Scared the eggs
right out of them I tell ya! It sure was a bold bird, for sure! :O
First knocked on the window, and it just glared at me. Then I
went out to shoo it away, and it just lazily flew to the lower limb
of a very close tree, and sat and watched me do my morning
Chores, of feeding & watering, and not every Pidgie stayed INSIDE
the loft! Even Randy & Earl were in ‘frozen-mode”! They didn’t
make a sound, but that ole hawk knew he seen them and he wanted
them bad, (but he couldn’t get to them!) because after I was done,
I came back to the house, and Mr. Hawk was back on the loft! The
nerve, eh?

Still, it has been a ruff week, here. Seeing all that domestic violence on TV
has got to wake up some women, that it is NOT OK, it is NOT right, and it sure
isn’t their fault. Did you see Ray Rice’s wife make excuses for him? Reminded
me of the “Oh, I just walked into a door” excuse. And, the she deserved it
routine? No way, and I also firmly believe that the NEXT time, (Oh yes, there
WILL be a next time too!) Ray’s wife won’t wake up, but will be laid out in
the morgue. I wonder, when she will ‘get it’? Also, Kudos to Cover Girl
for their “Get Your Game Face On” pic of a woman with a black eye,
and bloody face, they have been showing, and it speaks volumes! I think
they made a huge impact.

Brainwashed comes to my mind. Also heard of the other football player,
busted for child abuse! GOOD GRIEF, will it ever end? That child was
only 4 years old, and had welts on his private parts. And that nut said
he ‘whipped him coz he loved him’? I think he better open a dictionary,
and read the definition of LOVE and CHILD ABUSE. They are NOT
the same. I also heard Peterson is on “paid leave”… Hey, back in ‘the day’
we called that a vacation! Domestic Violence and Child Abuse has NO place
in today’s society.

I sent everything over to the printer. so in the meantime, you know the drill.
I’ll pop in when I can, someday, OK? One day at a time!:)

Yup still got my HOODIE on too!! That HOODIE is a symbol, yes. And yes, I still wear it
proudly, too! I wear it for all the Bostonians & every Amanda, Gina, Michelle &
Jocelyn that cannot speak for themselves. Especially, the littlest ones..... I
put an extra bag of skittles & M & M’s (LOTS of M & M’s!) in my pocket, for extra
munchies, and did make some fresh tea too. Yup, I am STILL in favor of the new
gun regulations, BIG-TIME & Even more now too! And, how about eliminating the
“Stand-Your-Ground-Law”? Haven’t enuff kids been killed with that excuse yet?

Stay SAFE out there, folks, !!Also, remember what Smokey the Bear said: “Only YOU

Oh, so you noticed JV won "A" game, eh? Well, I’ll still give him to you!

Hi!! Granny erod13!- Hello!!!! Wonderful to see you too!!!!! I hope you are having a
better day. I am glad the Benadryl helped ya. That is good stuff, and used to be
available by RX only. For me, I was happy to see it go OTC, as when
ya get attacked by no-see-ums or that lovely itchy weed, it is time to
attack back with both pills and cream. Nail it from both ends, as the
Doc always said.

Oh, E, I’ll bet you had a blast with your little guy! And hey, ya gotta
pre-test the toys, eh? :P Congrats to you!
Ditto: ***R.I.P. Joan Rivers***

Agree 110% E, I don’t think those sports figures should be on the field,
either! Abuse is abuse, they just think they can get away with it because
they R athletes. Hey, if my Tigers did that? I’d boycott them for sure.
Their behavior is brutal, and irresponsible and yeah, I could go on, but
think I better stop before I go overboard here! JMO, but football,
basketball, baseball, if they HIT a woman or a child, they should pay
the same as the public! Also, what about the kids that look up to these
athletes? They are all getting the wrong message, for sure. I say, clean
the whole thing: Time to boot the abusers, and see if any real players
are left? I have seen so much on the news, just makes my blood boil: from
Domestic Abuse, to child abuse! One guy actually convicted for
Sexual Abuse and never spent a day in jail. Cripe, I know guys doing
30 years, but hey, they are just reg guys. Not star athletes. Yup, hit ‘em
where it hurts THEM for a change, eh? I’m all for it!

Hi!! Grandpa GASOG-!! Hello!!!! Wonderful to see you !!
Not much to report, well, sometimes, that is the way things go.
I hope Zoe is doing better. She’s such a little darling.
“Hops” as medicinal… Hmmmmmm…. Maybe you can incorporate
some of that into your SOYBA! :P I hear it is quite relaxing!

Yup, Flying teeth, and other unmentionables we call ‘em. They
sure do take a hunk out of ya tho. Aren’t the hummers swarming
your lilies? OK, get the feeders, make sure they are fueled up for
their migration. They will surely need it.

Melting, eh? We are a bit on the nippy here. Really nippy! Nothing
like getting up in the am to the furnace running , so sure, I’ll be glad
to send you down a nice cool front, but you will have to send me
some HEAT! Man, I am dawning the flannels already!

Yup, you had that right: “Better late than never” for sure. Heck,
look at how late I am! Oh oh, don’t look at that! I could get reprimanded!
I’m still in basey-ball fever, here. I still don’t do football. Never did
understand the game, and never liked it.

You & erod said it , too: Domestic Violence, has been around for many, MANY
years. Did you know, that 20-30 years ago, it was called, a “domestic
dispute between a man and his wife? And the Police could NOT step in
between them”. Yes, exactly: A man had the right to hit and abuse his
wife AND kids, and NOBODY could stop him. Period. Now, it has a name,
and a face, Domestic Violence. It si also not just the over glorified
athletes doing it, but Joe down the street, too. Yup, no kidding. They
walk among us. Best one I ever heard, was a certain someone told me,
“Can you believe it? She got a PPO against me! I can’t go anywhere
near her!” I asked him what did he do to her? He told me nothing, but
I knew better. A PPO is a Personal Protection Order. PPO’s are not
M&M’s Needless to say, he knew I knew so no more was said. He can’t
hurt her anymore, either. Not for 30 years, anyway.

The only reason I think it is even in the news today, is because of the
tape. People could SEE what was happening, and I find it hard to
hear women defending him. Really hard. Not just the victim he hits,
but the kids, they suffer for life. And worse, some will grow up thinking
that is ‘normal’ and end up being abusers too. Such a vicious circle!
And a very scary one. I know that there is a law now, VAWA
(Violence Against Women Act) . I think that is a great step, but we need
to get the information OUT there, that it is wrong to hit a woman or child.
There is another football player, that was indicted for child abuse. I have
zero tolerances for that too. (I’m not VERY ruff, eh?) Stay Cool,
Enjoy your September & get some R & R & Lots a SOYBA!!!

#herecometheeggs! Uncle, I am gonna make you the one to bless this thread, after
reading your Last Supper! That was cute and oh, so true! :P Have a sip of that
medicine for me, eh? I’m working on a drip-drip-drip faucet in the
bathtub here. Darn near one of those adult beverages too!

Darn shame to hear of your employment being run so poorly. I think
it is a sign of the times, tho. Maybe all they can afford is the witch?
Ouch, that is a bad thought! Hogwarts, eh? Hmmmmm. I’ll send the
Pidgie Brigade! :P

Yes, I thought it was shocking to hear about Joan Rivers, too.
She wrote the book on being a Diva! Yes, she will be missed, and her
quick wit as well.

Sounds like you have some fond memories of your 8th birthday! Wonderful
to have that and the glove to bring em back to you!

Yes, agree on the tax dollars too. Myself, I am NOT happy to find out
my property taxes are going to a special ‘fund’ for the Detroit Red Wings
new stadium. Dang! School is getting less because of that, and now our
taxes are going up to compensate. And for what? We will never go to watch
them. Not 850 miles away. And for abusers. Not fair, not fair at all.

Good morning Frosty, friends and Pidgies...

erod, thank you for you thoughts and prayers for Zoe. It has been a very couple of months worrying over her. I don't know what was the issue Sunday, but she still seems a bit better and is still fighting. At least she isn't in any pain... Prayers to you and the Family of your Friend for your loss...

Be blessed, be safe, Love those you're with and have a great day all!

Good evening.

A beautiful day and sunny this afternoon.

We had some excitement this morning. Our State Police Bomb Squad Technician dismantled two "homemade bombs" after items were found near an elementary school. A friend of mine was walking in the park across from the school when the police came and blocked the streets. They had to remove a barricade so she could leave. TOO close for me!! It is around three miles from my home.

Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday . :)

Good morning Frosty, Uncle, Pidgies & Friends,

My friend, Renee Chaires, died from a gun accident on Sat. Such a sad time for the family. She was our hair stylist for the past 17 yrs.

Gasog, praying all goes well with Zoe...I know how hard this must be on you and the family.

Blessings to all.....

Good morning Frosty, friends and pidgies...

Thanks again for the kind words and prayer said. It seems little Zoe has yet to stop her fight as yesterday was better than Sunday. Its hard knowing what is actually going on in her spinal column and how the tumor has progressed. so again, she is day to day. The misses is still hoping for a miracle, but I know it is a mater of time...

Be blessed, be safe, Love those you're with and have a good day today!

Good morning frosty and friends,

This is the day that The Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

No Frosty not really much change of colors in leaves down here yet but I'm lovin this cool,crisp air. I love Jesus and I love fall...

I agree no one should be assaulted, it's so wrong that women and children are often the targets! But man or woman or child no one should have to deal with that.

Good evening.

Sunshine and a high of 69*. Love it. Love it. I got the yard mowed, trimmed with weed eater. Then sprayed Round Up next to the fence.

Hope you had a good Saturday . :)
