*wave* Where do I go when I disappear? Well, nowhere special, until recently. Usually when I disappear it's just because I've been kicked off the internet. Usually I just sit at home and stare at walls and such... Most recently I've been here, at Krystan's house, and as grateful as I am for that, it is partly just because I have nowhere else to go.

Anyway, I will try and stick around.

I miss our hummingbirds, they've all gone South for the winter   We had *thinks* four or five different ones, and they were two different subspecies, it was pretty neat to sit and watch them. They're so tiny! ^_^

Rhonda,
If it matters they came to us and we're taking good care of them!

Nancy Lee,
We've got three but I'd like one from my son. It still could happen though I refuse to make issue of it. You are richly blessed in that regard.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Well my KID is not yet 17, so I DON'T want a GRANDKID yet. LOL. But if she were closer to 27? Then I'd say...bring her/him on, diapers and all!
LOL, I've heard from 'experts' that being a grandparent is more fun than parenting.
Meanwhile, I'm content to stay away from the Huggies.

And WHY is it that kids born in spring or winter are often called Summer? and those born in summer are sometimes called Autumn?

Hello All!!  
Speaking of hummingbirds, there are about ten of them that have gathered around two feeders on Gary's parents front porch lately. In fact, since hurricane Ivan last week. I think all their food must have gotten blown away in the other places around here. I have some pictures of the hummingbirds from last year, but not with me here right now. I'll sit a while on the bench later and show them to you all. They are so cute!! Cute just like little babies, Susan.

By the way, Susan, we were down your way last week from Tuesday night until Friday morning. We had to evacuate. We were at McClenney. I would have called you one of the days we were there and chatted with you if I had known your number. I thought of you, since Jacksonville is only about 30 miles aways from there, I think.

And, Nancy, I saw a whole string of power trucks from up your way Sunday or Monday (my days are kind of turned around.) They were going to Pensacola, probably, to help us all out with the power. They were from Quebec, Canada. There have been crews from all over the US and Canada. Aren't people good?

Hey Kielo, isn't love grand??? Yep, it sure is!!

Goodnight all!!

Kari, You're just taunting me with those hummingbird pics... I tried all weekend to get a picture of the gang that hangs around my sister's feeder... but even their greed didn't make them gullible... They must have x-ray vision cause even when I sat INSIDE and across the room... they'd vanish every time I picked up a camera!! *S*

I don't like my life much right now... Can I just crawl into a corner and stay? Will someone pay the rent? *S*

Taunting you?  Hardly...the good fortune for these photographs was our recent trip to Colorado Springs.  I was amazed at how genial these little creatures were until I realized - heavens! - they were ALWAYS surrounded by people.  My dad had a way with the hummers and keeping them up close and personal long enough to get shots - but his cameras were from 20-30 years ago...so you can only imagine the quality.  No, dear, not taunting, just sharing.

I'll make some room in my luggage...you can come to CA with me with attend my high school reunion, which should be a hoot and a holler of everyone else wondering why their friends don't look as good to them as they think they look in their own mirror!  Truthfully...I was always the wallflower at any large social function in high school - so it will be quite the experience to see how things go this round.  C'mon Ruth...there's always room for one more...

Sunshiney One: Oh, lady... you are sweet. *S* I was teasing about the taunting... even though I'm still shaking my head over the expertise with which those busy little flutterers avoided my camera... My zoom's powerful enough I didn't need to be close... but I did need to have the camera in my hands... and they were having none of it! LOL

And I do appreciate the offer... but... you'd break your back hustling gigantic luggage for nought... I won't even go to MY reunions! LOL

Just popping in to say a quick hello to all, and to tell Karilea that I LOVED those hummingbird pics on page one!

That feeder is a little different than any I've seen before. Do you know if it will keep out wasps? We had a horrible time with wasps coming and going from the hummingbird and oriole feeders here this year (ants too).

Kit you had wasps where you are? Sucks to be you, I've seen four wasps in the last week, and that's all I've seen since last summer. It's been nice though, I'm petrified of wasps *grin*

And isn't it amazing how the ants can manage to get into the feeders? Even when we hang them far off the ground, they still manage to climb up the side of the house and onto the feeder @_@

For Kari--'cause theres no place like home.

*  *  *

I was sitting right where I'm sitting now, and my son walked in and caught me crying.

"Mom?" He is fourteen and can't fake concern yet.

"Vivaldi..." I said, smiling through tears.

"Why do you do this stuff to you? Damn mom, it's downright masochistic!"

He was standing there, taller than me, with that fine hair that a peter pan boy refuses to shave, but is still somehow proud.

"Put on some AC/DC," he suggested.

I did, but I wondered if it was for me or for him.

But I enjoyed the moment and I love the fact that even though I now have a sanctuary, they seek me out, and my doors are open.

We were watching television the other night, in my little cocoon, and I said,

"I knew it was going to be like this."

It was not a complaint, but contentment.

I was pleased actually. All this extra house, and still, the dogs were fighting the kids for space with ME, smile...with me...

But then Zachary pointed out to me, that this room is most like "home".

He had something on his mind and was hedging, so I hit the mute button and asked him direct,

"What is it, son?"

He looked kind of embarrassed.

"Could you spread some of your things around the house more?"

???

(huh?)

"It's more like home that way."

Then I realized, that indeed, I had packed our livingroom (my former bedroom) and simply moved it over here.

I hadn't even understood that they were homesick - shame on me - I should have known when my daughter dug out that old "Ferngully" tape that the kids had watched to literal pieces.

(Like an omen, it shredded in the VCR.)

*  *  *

I talk to them alot yanno. I apologize alot along the way. I told them that I understood that their childhood had been snapped shut abruptly, and we disussed finally, the pain of them losing their grandfathers in one week. The pain of them losing me to depression and illness. And the pain of losing the illusion of a father, who doesn't know how...

I told them that the move was a new start for us all.

I told them we have a few more years together as a single family, and that I wanted them to be as wonderful as their childhood had been. I asked them to tell me always, if I was doing something wrong.

"Do we do anything wrong mom?" asked my daughter, Krista, always worried, my mini me.

"I miss the snuggling." I confessed. "But I understand it's weird to hug when you have new breasts."

"MOM!" but she laughed while she blushed scarlet.

*  *  *

Pray with me they aren't scarred too badly by me.

I'm "home" afterall.

And that, my dear friends, was the nicest thing I discovered about moving.

I'm typing in the "near dark".  A dear friend said to light a candle, I did...but the TV and one tired esconce-type lamp give a little more light, but I still [after all these years] don't recognize my keyboard everywhere...I must be losing "touch"...and of course, being that I have certain eye symptoms, it is a braille touch that I am reaching out for...

just so I don't embarrass myself...

albeit...

Ladies, gentlemen...the things that have been shared here in the last day have been truly enlightening...and I will be back with more, later...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

It's quiet now.
So quiet, even the crickets
are sleeping.
This, is the pensive time, the pondering time,
when shadows of moonlight play over
hills and valleys, and blind men
read signs with fingertips touching warm...

it's quiet now.

Breathing comes to one,
the fine hairs on the nape of one's neck
feels the air of longing,
and it is easy enough to turn in.

But the moon pulls...it wakes one
and brings them to the window
to peer up...and in clear skies,
it is a magnificence unto itself.

Only a lover would see the light then,
cast down upon the one standing
at the window...
and perhaps can even sense
the deep soul sound of song as it
trembles the body...

a quiet come home
would suffice...

it's quiet now,
but the moon
may soon hear another song,
and climb a little higher
into the heavens.

Okay fine! I'll shut up and go to bed. I thought for sure somebody would want to have some fun but no!

Sheesh...

*muttering*
"I can't sleep...that's all."

smiling at the hummingbirds....I saved the pages to disk and will try to come back and post again
we were host to about 35 hummingbirds this year and yes you could get close enough to them to watch them blink, but I just never got my 'watching' and 'picking up a camera' to blend....somehow I needed to wathc them more than I needed to capture them.
hugs to all
I miss you guys

ooh 35 hummingbirds? I don't think I've ever seen that many ^_^ That would be way too cool to see.

I'm making supper tonight (spagetti ^_^) so I should go and attend to that and attempt to NOT burn anything

Hummingbirds.... ...seems they have a mothy cousin.  The Sphinx moth is almost as large as a hummingbird, and has a very LONG, needle like tongue that loves to sip out the nectar of plants like Impatiens...[I love the name of that little flower...I emulate it now and then...] I stood close enough tonight to a Sphinx moth that I could have reached down and touched it; yet, to let it be, to watch it flutter like a hummingbird, less than two feet away from me, observing as its tongue reached out and sipped nectar from flower to flower...was like witnessing a small miracle of everlasting...

This has been a marvelous weekend.  Our chapter's year of preparation for our Kansas Legal Professionals, Inc. Seminar weekend has gone so well, even the minor hitches were gone unnoticed by the participants.  You can figure that after tweaking introductions at 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning, only I would walk off with everything else in my briefcase except the papers I had just printed off.     But as I live only 3.2 minutes from the facility that we were holding the seminar, no police officer dared stop me going and coming and I made it back home and back in four minutes.  Think about it...

But what speakers!  Gads...even I didn't know I had delivered a powerhouse of information from so many varied areas that would be so well received.  You think you are doing your best, but when the evaluation sheets come in and if a score could be tallied...we exceeded, humbly, 100%.  We veered course because of the way the hotel was set up, and had a catered lunch; every person on the team knew their job and had no questions; notes were quietly passed to remind members of this, or that...and things went so smoothly, ever local chapter member kept waiting for an earthquake to open up under us because nothing EVER goes this smoothly!

Oh, there were a few wonderful faux pas moments but they were handled so expeditiously that no one other that the hosting chapter ever realized...

And then, tonight?  Oh, tonight!  Even though our weekend isn't over, so many of the chapters, when hosting a weekend, let their member/guests go and do whatever they wish for the evening.  But sometimes, our chapters plan evening entertainment, and ours was, in short, wonderful.  You see, in Kansas...you can generally count on the wind blowing 24/7.  But this weekend?

This weekend, we were blessed with clear skies, an almost full moon, heavenly stars, and a night at the Smoky Hill Winery north of town, where we enjoyed an Italian buffet, wines, [one Sphinx moth], and the lovely musical entertainment of Ann Zimmerman, an attorney/mediator/educator/environmentalist/ and daughter of a plumber, and yes, if you think she writes songs about that, you are right.  The evening went magnificently.  Even lovely segments of Canadian geese left a nearby lake and flew only a few hundred feet overhead of us...some three times...and you know what?  The gals from the eastern part of Kansas who don't normally see sights like that went, "ooh, aah..."

And while Ann was singing?  We had a garden snake visit the deck where everyone was sitting so there was some commotion, but I sat there, calmly [perhaps too tired to move after introducing everyone all day and being the general MC] but I thought...

"so comes the snake into the mix, and reminds us that among the good, runs adversity..." and run, it did.  It froze for a moment, probably more scared than the women who had jumped upon their chairs and/or upon the fencing along the deck...and still I sat, wondering at its beauty...

and my tea sat well within me.  The winery did a fine job of sales; our entertainer did fine on sales of her CD's...[oh she has a marvelous quality of music...if anyone is interested, see  http://annzimmerman.com

and, tomorrow...there will be photos...

oh, it's good to be home for a couple of days.  Wednesday, I leave for my other home, California...to visit family, see friends, attend a reunion, and with any luck?  See and feel my Pacific, and tap into the ocean again.

Yes, it will happen...

Oh...by the way?  I fixed a baked onion cream cheese dip that all of the members want the recipe for, so...if you don't have it [and you won't find it, because the recipe I took off the internet isn't what they got] let me know, and I will be glad to give you my version because it disappeared in about 95 seconds....

it's a karilea-version [I can't help it, I'm just that way...]

Hugs and love to all...

K

'Shine, what kind of a garden is that in your lead off pic?
Looks like a floodplain field of stinging nettle to me.  Ouch!  
I'm all for using native plants in the garden (like you should see my "yard"), but I think you're taking it too seriously!

Whilst Jeanne is playing leather and trix on Florida tonight, I thought I'd share another nervous moment of my life.

(Alright, alright, it doesn't compare with howling winds and ripping roofs, but hey Fla? it's all I got and I am nervous too)

A member of the band came by tonight.

wait.

Let me type that properly.

A member of the band came by tonight.

grin.

That would be enough to make him blush.

But he blushes easy for a guitar player - he admits his natural constitution is more suited for bass, though bass bores him to tears.

He came in and I asked him if he liked poetry.

(I was testing him.)

He said he might, he wasn't sure, was it like, um, poetry or could he understand it?

I said I hoped it would be both and double-clicked on a gig of mine--then I ran for my guitar, wanting him to fine tune the drop down "C" my son had tuned me in, knowing "E" and "G" were flat.

Wow.

He liked my poetry.

"I get this" he said, nodding emphatically. "The repetition? Lyrical..."

"Tune this right"

I shoved a guitar into his unhungry hands and he complied, tired, listening, ting ting ting....filing my complaints into the unlisted.

"Beautiful" I thought.

I wasn't done.

"Do that song," I begged of him.

He said "no," he needed amp.

"that I can provide..." I said, swirling ice cubes impish drink,

"come with me."

So I took him to the back room painted dark grey (cause black was just too obvious) of my son, and he had his Jackson just plugged in.

My friend walked in and he said "damn".

"Show me."

I held a cig on lips, and he asked my son, "son, do y'mind?"

"Not at all" My son respected him, and handed him the axe.

He took a simple G7 chord and rode the rails and it was like it all came back again. I watched his friends' bob head to chords, jamming, just the way we did.

Exactly. I was smiling the nods.

A simple basic chord in slide. Not tuned down in drop down "C", but just a simple walk up the neck.

I smiled and said, "let's make a deal"

and then he looked at me and said, "I'd do this just to hang out here" and my son followed us down the hall, swearing that if his little sister learned to play better, he would be intolerable.

I told him he was barely tolerated now.

"I like the way you write," said my friend.

"I've always loved the way you play..."

"Write me lyrics."

"Write me tunes."

He said he loved me anyway, though he had a wife.

I grinned.

*  *  *

I'll be seeing him again. Besides, I prolly love his wife more than he does.

*  *  *

Angelhugs to Florida.

Kraw, that introductory picture was taken by our venerable Janet Marie.  I will snag her up and remind her to come in and tell us first-hand what, indeed, those lovely plants are [I figured they were hostas] but I cannot promise that she will respond anytime soon - she's had her hands full!

Larry...I had so much wonderful help pulling the event together - our chapter is a well-oiled machine...

Ah, the member of the band...I've GOT to show this thread to my brother...he's a musician, you know...

And I'm off to finish up our weekend.  Ciao!

What a way to wrap a weekend, snakes and all...

Organizations that hold continued education seminars are not easy.  First, you have to "please everyone".  Seeing as how so many fields are specialized anymore, that limits what one can do to bring people to "your house".  Then, of course, you only have "so much time" to do what you can.  Keeping things "interesting" is another gambit altogether.  And planning the whole weekend from social hour to final wrap up is a testament to endurance of spirit....

Our highlights of the weekend happened each day:  we had terrific bartenders and food enough for everyone to go back for fourths...lots of laughter, jokes, sharing of lives; on Saturday we had five grand speakers who kept things going going gone!; Saturday evening, we had most every member go ahead and come to our evening at the Smoky Hill Winery, with entertainment by Ann Zimmerman [and folks, the website is annzimmerman.com  so please please please visit it...because she IS an angel!] and even with the snake that came up from the vineyards to listen to Ann sing, well, it only added to our evening...

Our Sunday meeting went well, albeit long, but still, expeditiously...because our members do not let themselves be run over with rulings that don't fit their cognizance.  Even in my own home town, the day wasn't over until I wrote my thank you letters to all of the people that provided us with such a wonderful weekend.

That was about two hours ago.  In 48 hours?  I am on my way to California for a trip to remember....

I will be in and out with connections and such...

so please, please...give me something to look forward to in this thread....I want to keep up on everything!

Sunshine you want something to look forward to? *grins* not many people look forward to my horse updates so I won't bore you with that hehe.

Suffice to say that it was an awesome ride today, and I'm going to make another attempt at a morning ride tomorrow

I'm glad your weekend went so well

And Larry, it always feels kinda good to be poked by Rhonda. I think it's cause I'm so special and all. *grin* no modesty here tonight hehe.

What's the latest on Florida? I've got family in Deland and my grandmother hasn't called with any updates lately, so I'm assuming that she hasn't heard from them (she's in Vancouver) either. I'm kinda starting to worry (don't tell my parents, they say I worry too much).

and then He created the horse...
