I’ve Been Thinking

How is everyone doing?  Fine I hope. I want to thank everyone for the kind comments on my last post and offers of how to fix my mantle.  I’m still working on that one.
The title of my blog is a little dangerous. My husband says that when I get to get to thinking, something always happens.  Either the house gets re-done, or the yard gets re-done or I have lots of projects for him to do, so he prefers that I not think too much, especially those kinds of thoughts.
It seems that my blogging  posts are getting farther and farther apart.  I think I am just getting old and slow, at least that is what it seems like to me.  I hope everyone had a great 4th.  We did.  On Saturday we went to our local minor league baseball team’s game and watched the fireworks and listened to our local philharmonic orchestra afterwards, in the rain, I might add.  Then on Sunday, of course it was church, and then on Sunday night it was Fireworks at the Crosses.  We have a church at another location and we have large crosses.  We had baptisms before the sun went down and then an AMAZING fireworks show after that.  My husband posted the videos on You Tube.  If I knew where they were, I would attach them. 
The day after the 4th, I went to the lake with our neighbors.  We had fun but girls and boys, let me tell you something, if you have never tubed before, don’t try it.  You get bounced around and around and around and if you are not laying on top of the tube and instead if you are inside of the tube, you can get stuck.  That happened to me.  I had 3 people getting me out of that tube.  There were 2 people pulling me, one on each of my arms and one person pushing on my butt.  That was funny but also a very painful experience.  I had some bruises from that.  The story is funnier than that but I don’t think I need to go into more explanation than that.  Let’s leave that sport to the very young.  Water skiing is a little different.
The week before that we had a large Sunday School party at our home.  My husband smoked 7 racks of ribs and smoked a pork butt.  YUM! YUM!   Everyone else brought delicious side dishes and desserts.  Needless to say no one went home hungry.  Sorry that I didn’t take any pictures, I was too busy, but believe me, there were a lot of bones left over.
We played a little game where everyone brought a picture from their childhood.  I mounted them on poster board and had a guessing game.  The winner won a prize.  That was really interesting.  No one looked then like they do now.  I also had everyone talk about how they met and how long they dated.  Boy was that interesting. 
Something that I have been thinking about is that if we met a fellow blogger on the street and we had never ever spoken before, I do believe that we could strike up a conversation and it could last for hours.  We would recognize each other by the pictures of ourselves on our blogs. We all like to blog and visit by leaving our comments on other blogs.  What do you think?    Maybe I am the only one that thinks that way.
We are going on vacation next week for 2 weeks.  That is a rarity for us.  When we get back, I will have lots of pictures for you.  Sorry, but this is a pictureless post.
You all have a great week ahead and I will visit with you when I return.
Blessings to everyone ~

Hi Maxine!....it's great to hear from you!....sure sounds like you had a wonderful holiday and yes I do believe that if we bloggers met on the street that we could sit and talk for hours as if we'd known each other for years!

Have a fantastic vacation!....I need one of those myself! ha!

Hi Maxine!
I also think that we'd know each other from our blog pictures and would be able to strike up a conversation if we'd run into each other on the street. It'd be just like running into an old friend on the street, I'm real sure!

Enjoy your vacation, and can't wait to see all your neat pictures when you get back!

Blessings,

I've often thought I'd love to meet my blog friends. I feel like I know so many of them already. I'm sure the conversations would be wonderful.

Hi Maxine~
It sounds like your fourth was fun and great memories were made.
I agree as well about talking for hours with a fellow blogger however, would you recognize me with this picture? hehe!

Hello there! I agree that if you get to know someone online via a blog, you'd also know them in person. It would be just like a real friend if you met them! I'll keep an eye out for you when you return from vaca!
