Get
the 
HELL
over
IT
! ! ! ! ! ! !
By
CRAIG

I
[one of the 3 personalities that is not afraid to say it out loud ]
am
sick and tired
of the
"Bernie or Bust"
asswipe
dingleberry
WHINERS
out there.

He LOST.
Get OVER it.

Declare all the nonsense you want
about the
DNC
etc.
Etc.
ETC.

BERNIE 
is 
NOT 
The 
DEMOCRATIC
NOMINEE

P--E--R--I--O--D
!  !  !  !  !  !  !


And
YES
had the "shoe been on the other foot"
I would have gladly
worked my guts out
for
SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS
and
would
NOT
have been an
wretched
mean-spirited
venom-spewing
crybaby
whimp-ass
like
YOU
[ yes, that's Y.O.U. ]

Also
don't you dare say that by
not voting for 
Hillary
you are: 

[1] Just showing
your support for Bernie,

[2] Refusing to vote for a "liar"
[Trust me "honey", if you've EVER voted, 
you've already voted for a "liar" in one respect or another.]

and

[3] Not responsible for electing 
TRUMP 
as 
President

because
NONE
of that
BS
is
true.







signed,

CRAIG
the one personality brave enough
to
say it
AND
write it!

What
was
THAT
all
about
?


We
APOLOGIZE
for 
Monday's
rather
DONNIE  DOWNER
KASIYH
blog post.

Today's another day
sooooooo

GOOD  MORNING  FRIENDS!

As the summer of 2016 marches forward
[ all too quickly ]
GGC
is finding that even with a "side-kick"
we can still write a blog post here and there.
Lucky you.

Confession Time

Out of sheer curiosity we gave in and started playing
CANDY CRUSH SAGA
O
GOOD
HEAVENS
!!!

We truly believed that all our friends saying that game is addictive
[ and begging us to play it via FB ]
had to out of their minds.
Consequently we decided to see for ourselves.
BAD MISTAKE.
Now we're stuck on level twenty-five
and can't get past it.
We have decided not to buy "more moves" etc.
so we're stuck.
Now we need to delete that game app 
and move on
but it's bugging us to no end.

Will keep you abreast.

NEXT WEEK

is the
REPUBLICAN CONVENTION
and
if that's not exciting enough
it's also
ALLEGANY COUNTY FAIR WEEK
! ! !
Entertainment galore.


Can anyone else besides us
remember when folks looked at the Trump candidacy 
as a joke?
No joke now friends.
Mr. Trump is about to become the
Presidential nominee of the Republican Party of 2016.
As Grandma Sullivan-Spangler
used to say:
"Who'd a thunk?"

*

*

*


Still a lot

[read = too much ]
going on for MJ and GGC.
Recall that we had vowed the summer of 2016
would be less packed and more laid back.
HA!
Turned out just the opposite.
With one exception we both wish we'd stuck to our original plan
and learned to say "No" 
We're no longer
twenty
or
thirty
or
forty
or
fifty
with anywhere's near
"boundless energy".

Hard lesson learned.

GGC
began this post on Tuesday 7/12
and as almost always
much has changed since then.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Nice, France.
Yet another terrorist attack, with so many innocent folks killed
and injured.

It seems like the last couple of weeks 
have been at least a month long.

LAST WEEK
for our beloved nation 
was nigh onto excruciating.

For those of us who can remember the 1960's
it brought back horrid memories.

Are we the only ones who have cried actual tears for our nation
in the last few days?
We think not.


Add to that the funerals of two family members
[ Cousin Susan Feldbauer and her Mom Doris Rowe Feldbauer ]
one week apart
AND
the personal heartache some of our dear friends are experiencing;
it
almost
seems
too
much
to
handle




And yet
we somehow reach deep inside ourselves
and
find
the 
Strength

to carry on.


GGC
cannot fathom how people 
who
do not
believe in 
God
continue the journey called life.

One thing that past two weeks
has brought back to mind
[and which we continually NEED brought to our attention]
is how
fragile and fleeting
life truly is.

Enjoy every moment of the
precious present
for all too soon it will be
G
O
N
E
.


*

*

*

Another
life lesson
we have had
renewed
within us this
summer
is:
Not
EVERYTHING
or
EVERYONE
are as they originally appear to be.

Yeah,
you'd think that by the seasoned age of sixty-two
this one would be a no-brainer,
but alas
apparently not.

That which seems to yoke
ALL
of the above together
is 
FAITH
and
TRUST.

FAITH will get us through it all
even when
[ at times ]
our TRUST in others has been misplaced.





LIFE
you're a hell of a teacher.

GREETINGS FRIENDS!



Thanks
for your replies on FB to Saturday  6-11-2016 
KASIYH
blog post questions concerning buttons on a clean shirt/blouse.
Quite interesting.

Sunday's [6-19-16] closing mass of the 2015-1026 choral season for St. John's went very well, hardly a hitch.  SJC members did an extraordinary job beginning with thirty minutes of prelude, singing music they'd learned from September 2015 through June of 2016.  Of course we didn't get everything in there, but a rather fine representation thereof.  Coffee Hour following the mass was also great, with a cake honoring St. John's Choir as well as all kinds of other goodies provided by Don and Cherie Andrews. AND our dear friends Ron and Lee Ann Lambert-Meehan joined us also ,,, what a pleasant treat!

Later in the day we had shish-kabobs, salad, etc. as well as Strawberry shortcake at Connie's  Of course our wonderful !Jaxson! was present also.  Had a grand time.

Most of the day Saturday MJ worked on T.B.P. and got quite a bit accomplished.  Thank you Michael James !!!

! STOPPED !

Good Heavens
are we
EVER
going to make an actual post?

As you can see, we start, but rarely finish.
For those in the
"know"
you realize "why".

g-EEEEEEE-sh

TUESDAY
JULY 5th, 2016

And we will try yet again.

We do not have our regular "charge" today,
so perhaps
JUST PERHAPS,
we can complete a
KASIYH
blog post today.

   As most of you know, MJ's cousin, Susan Feldbauer DeRock passed away unexpectedly during the night [in her sleep ] Saturday night into Sunday morning June 26th.  Her funeral was held last Thursday at the Angelica United Methodist Church.  A little over two days later, [ this past Saturday late afternoon/early evening] Susan's mother, our Aunt Doris passed away in Jones Memorial Hospital.  Aunt Doris's funeral will be this Thursday [one week after her daughter's funeral ] = same place, same time.  This is truly a case of someone dying of a broken heart.  Aunt Doris was truly a one-of-a-kind gem in the Feldbauer family.  Her insight, wisdom and laughter will be sorely missed.

   Some of you have asked if GGC has "dropped" you from the notification list on FB concerning this blog OR if you have been blocked.  We post VERY RARELY at this point in time [most of you know the reason ] so just hang in there folks!

   POLITICALLY:  Soon the Republican Convention will be upon us, and we can hardly wait.  The entertainment value alone will be worth it all.  The mind reels at the possibilities.  We have noticed that [yet again!] the Republican's [including the locals] are whining about this general election being in shambles overall.  They have so whined for at least three cycles now,,,mainly because their party is such a mess and getting even messier [IMHO].  Will say that the Republican party sure isn't what it used to be , , , through every fault of their own.  Again IMHO they  allowed  the Tea Party branch to gain so much control [ so they could overtake Congress] that now [what seems like] the entire party has gone bonkers and they can't seem to bring it back to anywheres close to "normal".  T'is a pity really as we need [at least] two strong, viable political parties in this country.  Sure will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Republicans. 
     The Democrats seem to have their nominee also, although that is not official until the convention. We enjoy seeing the vast effect that Senator Sander's has had on the Democratic party.  Many folks simply wrote him off at the beginning of the primary ,,, big mistake.  The "Sander's Effect" will have its impact on the party l--o--n--g after the convention AND the general election, and [IOHO] it's a grand effect indeed.
    ALLEGANY COUNTY, NEW YORK ~  Care to guess which nominee [and yes we know that neither one is official yet ] has thee most signs up in yards ?   Yep ,,,, !TRUMP!  In fact we have yet to see a sign for Hillary anywhere locally.  There MUST be some, but we haven't seen them as of yet.  Things are even worse at MJ's place of employment , , , and it's not just him saying so ... heard from another employee that works there and he says the same thing: "Thank heavens Friendship Dairies is not indicative of all of Allegany County!"  MJ [and this other fellow employee] say[s] that one cannot hold an intelligent conversation about differences of opinion,,,as the TRUMP supporters end up yelling and screaming rather than exchanging ideas.  What a shock.

   Legs are still acting up, nothing new there.  We've begun some investigative work via the internet concerning I.C. [Intermittent Claudication ] of the legs. [ Closely associated with P.A.D. Peripheral Artery Disease ] and so far are not overtly encouraged.  But we shall not give up.  If memory serves we have an appointment at University of Rochester later this month.

   FINALLY after being behind for four to six weeks, GGC is caught up both in his daily Bible readings AND in his personal journal.  That has been wearing on us a great deal.  Now, to just keep it caught up.
   Weight is still  w-AAAAAAA-y  too high and bugging the hell outta GGC.  Starting to again really despise naturally thin people.  Main body areas of great concern:  our chinS [each of which have their own Zip Code ] and our gut [which is a country unto itself AND proceeds us into a room by about two feet or so].  We know, we know, many people have much greater problems, but you KNOW how GGC is about this.  G-eeeeeee-sh.  We were s-OOOOOOO much happier when we were THIN.
