A huge THANKS to all who spoke up concerning yesterday's
KASIYH
Blog post.
I admire each and every one of you.

I know [most] of my readers quite well,
meaning I am aware of: 
those who comment almost always,
those who comment on a regular basis,,
those who comment once-in-a-while,
those who comment rarely,
as well as
those who read but don't comment at all
[unless it's directly to me via email or FB PM.]

For those readers who fall in 
the first category listed above:

Combine your
 CHOSEN SILENCE


with the fact that
there are ways 
one can "check up" on folks that one has tagged on FB
concerning any given Blog post
[ although I rarely take the time /effort to do that,  I did so this morning.]
and

I. WAS. SHOCKED.

SHOCKED TO THE VERY CORE OF MY BEING.

Close family and personal friends
that I had thought 
I knew ever-so-well,
I apparently knew not at all.

I am so very sad
now that your
CHOSEN SILENCE
and
your
OVERT ACTIONS
concerning
yesterday's
KASIYH
Blog post
have been revealed to me.

It's going to take me a while to digest 
your decisions and subsequent actions.
[ And you KNOW to what I am referring.]

Those decisions and actions
have altered my perception of
 you.

It is what it is.

Even if I could, I would not chose to "un-write"
yesterday's
Blog post.

I stand by it 100%

"Every cloud has a silver lining"
Perhaps, given time, prayer and much deliberation,
I will be able to
Thank God
for
the

of the
"real you"

Do NOT read this Blog post if you're "delicate" 
or easily offended.
Gregory's "nice gloves" are coming OFF,
the ever moderating Greg is being
thrown aside
and
CRAIG
is taking over!


!!!!!!!  WHAT  THE  HELL  !!!!!!!

Separating
CHILDREN
from their parents?

THEN
having the
GALL
to
blame others for
a
Decision
made and sanctioned by
PRESIDENT
DONALD
TRUMP
HIMSELF
???

!!!!!!!  WHAT THE HELL  !!!!!!!

G and G have attempted to be as
"nice"
as possible concerning the
current
President of the U.S.
mainly because we have Loved Ones who support him
but
THIS
is
IT
!!!!!!!

Babies and Youngsters
being
TAKEN AWAY
from
their
Momma's and Pappa's
and put into
CONCENTRATION CAMPS
[let's call them what they actually ARE people]
is what the
UNITED STATE OF AMERICA
is doing
because of
DONALD
J.
TRUMP

PERIOD
!!!!!!!

Don't be
FOOLED
when
he
blames the
Democrats or Congress,
it
is
DONALD J. TRUMP
who
instigated this unimaginable
TRAVESTY
!!!  PERIOD  !!!

AND
with a
snap of his fingers
this could all
STOP
right now,
this very minute,
but instead
DONALD J. TRUMP
chooses
to
use this abhorrent situation
that
he
brought on,
for 
his
political advantage.

!!!!!!!  WHAT THE HELL  !!!!!!!

And if
YOU,
yes
YOU
agree with
him
OR
simply
"remain silent"
on this issue
you,
yes
YOU
are as much a
part of the
TRUMP GESTOPO
as your
glorious leader.

Did
that
PISS YOU OFF
?

You can still
[ if you so desire ]
remain a
good Republican
yet
vehemently disagree
with the
Donald J. Trump
DECISION
on this matter.

But for the
Love of God
SPEAK UP.

DON'T
be
a
pussy
[ their not just for grabbing as he suggests ]
and
DO
SOMETHING.
N--O--W

Yes,
we acknowledge immigration is a
complicated problem,
[so don't start THAT spiel on us]
but
RIGHT NOW
any
DECENT and LOVING
person
should let it be known
[ shout it from the rooftops if possible ]
that the
current situation
of
separating
children from their parents
implemented by
Donald J. Trump
MUST
STOP
NOW

And before we close,
if you agree with your
glorious leader
on this one act
of
separating
children from their families,
you
might want to consider
UN-FRIENDING
us on Facebook.

Most
of
our true friends
are
loving, kind
AND
compassionate
people
who would never, ever
condone
this act
brought on by
Donald J. Trump
himself.

Get
OFF
your
ASS
and
make some phone calls,
write a letter or an email
to your
Congressman or Congresswoman
 or Senator[s]
and
together
let's
END
this 
disgraceful
NIGHTMARE
now
!!!!!!!

In parting,
GOODBYE
to those of you who
either
agree with
or
remain silent
in
defense of the children.
! SHAME ON YOU !

 GOOD MORNING FRIENDS

This past weekend was something else:
having its share of ups and downs,
but
Through It All
GOD
showed me how
OVER WHELMINGLY BLESSED
HE
has made me.

Friday was Jaxson's Kindergarten Graduation.
Very cute and entertaining ceremony
provided by
Genesee Valley Central School.
Of course Jaxson was the "star" for us.
Each child was given a diploma and an award,
the award for Jaxson was:
Future President.
!!!  YES  !!!



Saturday morning MJ was in Wellsville
helping out a dear friend of ours in the morning
[which he very much enjoyed BTW]
then
his Dad was taken to the hospital
[ JMH ]
so much of the rest of Saturday
MJ and Mary Jo
were with their Dad
whilst he had tests, etc.
Looks like things will turn out okay for
Jim Feldbauer,
thank God!
[ MJ went to TOPS for a few groceries after being at JMH ]




! SUNDAY MORNING !
We headed to St. John's earlier than usual
so that MJ could go across the street to visit his Dad
before church actually began.
This also gave me some alone time in church
to go over the day's music, etc.

The actual Mass was wonder-filled.
It was one of those days when
EVERYTHING
simply flowed with the 
Grace 
of the
 Holy Spirit.

If you truly understand that last phrase,
you KNOW whereof I speak.
[ RIGHT ? ]

INDESCRIBABLE

Even
Coffee Hour
post Mass
was
FILLED to the BRIM
with such 
Joy and Love
t'was 
out-of-this-world.

Came home to find a lovely
Father's Day
gift bag and card
from
JAXSON
[who was with his Dad this weekend].

Rest of day was spent here in the


THEN
to
Top off the Day
was
BLESSED
to have a phone chat with my darling niece
JENNIFER
last evening.
! WoW !

If ya add in the extra's that God provided
leading up to or surrounding these events;

Lovely dinner at Jaxson's Ga-Ga's [Connie Lewis] house
Thursday eve
to celebrate the next day's K. Graduation.
Nine of us present if memory serves.


A great phone call with our brother Mark Feldbauer
[last week]

A separate phone chat with our S.I.L. Lorie Feldbauer
[ what a hoot she is ]

Sitting near
Joshua, Nancy, Phil and Annette Brown at K. Graduation
[I have a long and beloved history with that Brown family]

Texts and a phone call from our sister Kate on Saturday
[ Kate always provides much laughter! ]

how could anyone NOT feel
BLESSED?

{ I know I left out some peeps, so please forgive me! }


GOD is Good all the time,
all the time GOD is God.



THANKS
to all who responded to the last
KASIYH
Blog post
concerning the
Boarder Hoarder's
here.

GOOD ADVICE from Y'ALL.

I am intently reading a book by Dana K. White:
" How To Manage Your Home w/o Losing Your Mind "
She speaks readily of
"Deslobification"
and
WHY
those of us who can easily handle
projects
[like an entire Drama Production]
from beginning to end
can't
seem to do the same with cleaning/decluttering
our homes.

FINALLY
someone made sense to my pea brain.
[I think it's no coincidence this author was once a Drama Instructor
 = I can relate.]

I still have yet to figure out 
how to get phone pics to this Blog
[ sorry Cheryl Stanton ]
but if I had,
I would show y'all what I'm facing.
And I refuse to post said pics on FB itself
because
even though it's easy to do so,
it still takes a little  effort  to come to this Blog.

ANYWAY,
TODAY I am feeling inspired
and
THAT
is half the battle.

SO
Dear Friends,
I am now
OFF
TO
MAKE
A
DIFFERENCE.

First attempt at what "used to be" regular KASIYH Blog posts, pre April 27th, 2018







First Off

HAPPY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
to
JOE and LAURIE MEAD

I remember their anniversary because it's also Flag Day
or as I oft put it:
" RAISE THAT POLE JOE ! "

LOVE YOU BOTH
SOOOOOOO
MUCH!

My house is a freakin' MESS!
I so VERY MUCH desire to be what
I used to be:
SUPER TIDY and ORGANIZED.
[As in a Sue Ross or Cheryl Stanton ]

I was so organized I had my own kind of
" Dewey Decimal System "
with every item in this house, basement or garage
having it's own number on an index card
as to exactly where it was located.
[Broken down by category no less
and the index cards were color coded.]

NOW?
We are definitely at a minimum,
Boarder Hoarders.
[Right on the boarder of being full fledged Hoarders.
There's more than a pathway through most rooms,
but that's about it.]

HOW
did this happen?
Basic answer:
Once one thing was
out-of-control
it
ALL
" went to h_ll in a handbasket
as
Auntie Fran Guinnip
used to say.

In this case it was when GGC was not longer able 
to get around as usual, i.e. when my legs got so bad.
BUT that EXCUSE has to 
STOP.
[ I know we've discussed this before folks ]
Be it
Legs Hurting
or
D.o.D.
or
Death in the Family
IT'S
TIME
to
GET A MOVE ON.
So yesterday I [finally] made some headway at this
B.H.H.
[ Border Hoarder House ]
It actually began on Monday when I finally
washed the dishes that had been around for
Two Weeks
dried them AND put them away.
[They had all been rinsed clean, just not properly washed.]
Since then I've kept the dishes cleaned every day
as well as put away where they belong.

You think that's bad?
Welllllll
I can top that one.
Yesterday I began cleaning the master bedroom.
It's mainly clutter
[which I never, EVER allowed to happen in the sleeping room of this house ]
and
MJ and I agreed on during last Saturday morning's C/C
[ Coffee and Conversation ]
that we needed to move some furniture, etc.
out of there.
[ Longer process than one might think ]
A-N-Y-W-A-Y
we have folded clean clothes, in a clothes basket, in that room,
that have been there for 
over two months.
[Don't worry, I covered that basket with clean afghans.]
But
OVER  TWO  MONTHS!?!

Not
one
of
you
can
TOP THAT
I'm sure.

I am hoping that room will be basically
back to normal soon
[ at least by the end of the weekend, if not before ]
I WILL keep you updated.
Please
HOLD ME
to that promise folks!

HAPPY NEWS

Our sweet
JAXSON
had a dance recital last Friday eve
at
Wellsville High School Aud.
and
of course he was
WONDERFUL!
[ But why state the obvious? ]
LOVE YOU J.D.


Had a LOVELY CHAT with our brother
MARK FELDBAUER
last week.
We don't get to talk all that often
but when we do it's
G-rrrrrrr-eat !



Also managed to connect with our sister
MARY JO
on Sunday afternoon.
She brings sunshine into our lives always.



Bought the book by
James Patterson and Bill Clinton
"The President Is Missing"
AND
even offered it to MJ to read before me.
[OK, mainly because I knew I wouldn't be able to keep my mouth shut if I read it first.]
According to MJ the book is really good.

Speaking of my beloved MJ:
He rarely asks for anything
A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
His check is auto-deposit 
and
I pay the bills via his $ and my $.

However,
a couple of weeks ago or so,
he mentioned something 
that he sounded very interested in.
He made it clear that he didn't think we should buy it
as it wasn't by any means a necessity.

I thought about, prayed about it
and
the next Saturday morning I told him to go buy it.

You'd have thought the man was going into shock!
Like a kid in a candy store.

So we now have a
65" Flat Screen TV
in our living room.

He loves it.

He's happy
then
I'm happy.


AND
I think I will end this Blog post
on
that
HAPPY NOTE.


I do have a
Master Bedroom
to continue work on ya know!





Thanks for reading/listening!
