2016
is
a--l--m--o--s--t
O V E R





! What a YEAR !

Am not grieving its passing.

*

*

*

Greetings Friends

Did
ANYONE
out there have a
SPECTACULAR
2016
?   ?   ?
Just curious.

Perhaps 2016 wasn't the worst year ever,
at least we  survived  it,
but
"Lordy Lord"
it seemed
rough
to put it mildly.

*

*

*

We DID end up with some
Christmas Decorations
up here at the palace,
mainly due to MJ's insistence and assistance.
[ Thank YOU MJ ! ]

BRIGHTEST SPOTS
of
Christmas 2016
for us
were
Christmas Eve Mass
at
St. John's

followed by a
Christmas Party
at
Mary Jo and Jim's
at which we were able to see both our sisters,

and
Jaxson's Christmas Morning and Afternoon.

As this
KASIYH
Blog post
is being written
[Friday 12-30-16]
we had some
SNOW
overnight
and
more is falling [quite heavily] right now.
Thank Goodness
for the snow blower
MJ bought from his Dad!
[BTW, MJ not only clears driveway, etc. but he always goes out back
and clears many paths for Paulie too. How cool is that ? ]


STOPPED  WRITING

We're back.

It's now
New Year's Eve
DAY

*

*

*


A New Year is almost here.


Any
RESOLUTIONS
?

Most of us are
seasoned
enough to not put great stock in
New Year's Resolutions.

But the allure of the same remains,
at least in this household.

" HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL "
so-to-speak.

Before we move to possible 2017 resolutions,
let's look at the resolution thoughts from
one year ago.


Here is exactly what GGC's Journal says on Jan. 1st 2016:

*********************

2016  Please Be Kind !!!!!!!
Friday, January 1st In The Year of our Lord 2016                    201
  GK up @ 6:00a.m. and MJ @ 9:00am.  We spent the day here at home with one another, which was fine by us.  I did manage to write a Blog post today.  Other than that, nothing newsy to report.
Praise The Lord !!!!!!!   G. Kent

*********************

From that one might think there were no resolutions BUT in a separate little notebook GGC had written: 

1.]  Read through entire Bible again this year [And I did=14th year in a row.]
2.]  Improve prayer life. [ Failed to live up to what I'd hoped on this one.]
3.]  Love more, everyone is a child of God. EVERYONE! [Not there yet!]
4.]  Be kinder ,,, even if you have to bite your tongue off ! [Improved but not good enough]
5.]   Get MJ to laugh more. [This happened, still more work to do.]
6.]   Lose more w8  [ FAILURE!  FAILURE!  FAILURE! ]
7.]    Finances in better shape.  [ Nope ! ]





As you can see,
although I didn't make it
"official"
by putting them in my personal journal,
I did have resolutions for 2016.

What were your hopes and dreams for 2016?

What are YOUR
Hopes and Dreams
for
2017
?   ?   ?


IF
you have resolutions for
2017
what might they be?

If you are a
DEBBIE or DONNIE
DOWNER
and
refuse to make resolutions,
kindly refrain from comments.

Thank you!

GOOD DAY FRIENDS

*

*

*


First off
THANKS
for the readers and those who commented on the last
KASIYH
Blog post

*

*

*


HUGE APOLOGIES
to
DEB PRESUTTI
and
MARY ANN "Mom" WEISS
I neglected to send out birthday cards
to
both of them:
DAUGHTER and MOTHER
both with
BIRTHDAY'S
on
DECEMBER 17th
Love them to the moon and back!

*

*

*

Thirdly
GGC
has become
TERRIBLE
about sending out cards
in the last year or so.
Used to be so
"on top"
of all that,
in fact looked forward to it.

Now,
am horrid about it.

Haven't even sent out one
Christmas card
this year.

PLEASE
don't take it personally.
GGC's
LOVE
for
y'all
is beyond comprehension,
it simply is not showing up in
card sending.

*

*

*

Fourthly,
my thoughts this morning are
CrAzY  rAnDoM
but
right at this moment I am smiling thinking about:
" SATIN DOLL "
and
Yog
[ and at times my niece, Iris also]

When MJ and GGC
resided at
26 Milton Street, Belmont, NY
we had
a piano, an organ,
microphones
and
Yog's drum set
in our dining room.
[ VERY good use for a dining room I'd say! ]

And
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  BABY
would we ever
"jam"

We play for hours and Hours and HOURS!

GGC's favorite for us to play was
SATIN  DOLL

Yog could simply "read" my every move.
He just KNEW when I was going to break for a
drum solo
and
DANG
was he ever spot on.

And not just for
SATIN DOLL
for
every
freakin'
song.

We could "read" one another so completely,
it was nigh onto spooky.

So
this morning I found a
You Tube
version
[ or 2700 ]
of
SATIN DOLL
and have been listening to them
over and Over and OVER
and
finding warmth in the memories
of
what used to be.



Miss you Mark Joseph

*

*

 STILL
not one Christmas decoration up here.
Welllllllllllll,
there IS a
Christmas magazine or two in the living room,
does that count?

*

*

*

! DANG !
Just remembered something
I need to do
RIGHT NOW.

Back later?

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS

*

GREAT
responses
to the
KASIYH
Blog post
on
cheating.

And not
[ thank Heavens ]
a lot dribble that one might have expected.

Y'all
got right to the crux of the issue.
H O W E V E R
we may have to come back to that issue in the future.
Trust us.

*

*

*


YES
we have
HEAT
once again
[ Thank God ]
as of Wednesday late afternoon.
ALL seems to be working as it should
thanks to
GOD
and
Lidsay's Plumbing, Heating and A/C
of
Wellsville, NY
585-593-6539

*

*

*


Speaking of heat,
" Baby, It's Cold Outside "
11 degrees
and with wind
feels like
minus 2 degree's
[ according to our phone ]

Now just HUSH Marcine Delo.
When one chooses to live in freaking Minnesota
one must expect the temps you get there,
but here,
not so much.
[ I can say that to Marcine as we are close buds,,, right "Red" ?  ]

We were spoiled here in WNY last December.
Apparently we're making up for it this December.

*

*

*

After tomorrow
[ Friday ]
MJ
is off from work until January 3rd.
He sure deserves the break.
Hang in there
LOML

TECHICALLY CHALLENGED GGC

So here's the story

Apparently I belong to
Twitter
and possibly Instagram
etc.
but I have
NO KNOWLEDGE
as to how they work.
Recently heard a story that one of those type sights
you can post a pic then it "disappears" a short while later,
is THAT true
?



Brother Mark Feldbauer
suggested the family
" Face Time "
on
Christmas Day.
? HOW ?

Also
I'm thinking about the possibility of
doing a
VLOG
[ Is that even the correct term? ]
for one [ or some ] of these Blog posts.
? HOW ?

AND
along with all of this,
do I have a built-in camera
on our computer
[ I think so ]
AND
if that's true,
are people
" watching me"
?
?
?


And don't be a meanie-head and tell me:
"Yes Greg, we've ALL been watching YOU all the time"
Y'all
KNOW
that could freak me outta my mind!

That's it for now.

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS

*

*

*



And
welcome to
TUESDAY



Today's
TEMPTATION TOPIC
is




Not at a
Board Game
or at
Gambling
or
on your
Taxes
or
on your
Diet
ETC.
but
in
a
RELATIONSHIP


BEFORE
we go any further
and
WRITE ONE SENTENCE
of what
YOU
BELIEVE
is
CHEATING
within a relationship.

REALLY.
This will help us by the end of this post.

[ NIKE ]
JUST  DO  IT
!   !   !


Okay
if you think you're too
busy to write one freaking sentence
DO NOT
read
the rest of this Post.
You do not deserve to do so.

NOW,
whether we are talking about
"John and Mary"
or
"John and Larry"
or
" Sherri and Mary"
one thing most of us would agree on
[ I think ]
is that if you and your partner
believe / agree you are in a
monogamous relationship
and
one of you is then found to be in a full blown
intimate / sexual relationship
with another individual,
that is generally referred to as
CHEATING.

This topic has interested us for decades
as we've watched
[ unfortunately ]
many a relationship
crash and burn
due to
" infidelity "
or
at least what one partner
felt
was
infidelity.

Herein lies the question[s]:

Example 1.
John is in a relationship with Mary,
yet he attends a
bachelor party
that ends up at a
stripper club.
John stays and celebrates with the guys.
Did John cheat on Mary?

Example 2.
Mary and John are in a relationship
yet Mary attends a
Chippendale Show
with her girlfriends.
Did Mary cheat on John ?

Example 3.
Sherri and Mary are in a relationship
and
Sherri finds that Mary spends quite a bit of time emailing/texting
their friend Doris.
There is nothing intimate / sexual in that friendship,
yet Sherri feels emotionally neglected.
Is Mary actually
cheating
on
Sherri ?

Example 4.
John and Larry are in a relationship
yet
it seems to John that all Larry talks about is
his business partner Sam.
"Sam said this"  "Sam said that"
"Sam is SO funny!"
John is a bit jealous of this friendship
but is it
cheating?

Example 5.
John and Mary again.
Mary discovers that John has a
"girlie magazine"
and
she surmises he uses it for
"self-pleasure".
Is John
cheating
on Mary
?
[ One could reverse this, with John finding Mary's vibrator ]

We think we know what most of the responses are going to be
[ the Prissetts as we call them ]
but those responses
IMHO
should not be as
"cut and dried"
as they might [ will ] appear to be.
" If one partner is upset,
the other has to acknowledge that
and
behave accordingly."
[ Will say the "Prissetts" ]

Too
"cookie cutter"
of a response for us
and
NOT
taking into account so many other factors.

BUT
we'll see what the responses are and go from there.

The
COMMENT
SECTION
is now
OPEN

GO  FOR  IT!


















Monday, December 12, 2016


So is it
" Just My Imagination"
or does
MURPHY'S LAW
apply in spades for the month of December?

For years and years and YEARS
we had vehicles break down in December.
One was almost to the point of thinking
either we were cursed
or
MJ was breaking them for some inexplicable reason.

This year it is not a vehicle
[ so far ]
it's
the furnace.

The part worked well for a brief while,
now furnace is not working at all.
Can't even manually run it as previously was possible.

WE HAVE SPACE HEATERS THOUGH
and
ARE NOT FREEZING.
Thank God.

It's so danged irritating in more ways than one can count.

This morning we opened up our
Advent reading for the day
via
SSJE
[Society of St. John the Evangelist]
and
here's
the
WORD of the DAY:
RELY
with the following reading:

When we are inconvenienced, we have to rely on God. When we have to rely on God, the impossible becomes possible, and we find that we are able to do and achieve that which we never could do or achieve on our own power. We have to have God’s help.

I hear Ya Lord.
I hear Ya!

Early Saturday morning we were blessed to help out
some family members
with a
l'il rendezvous assignment.
WHAT. A. GAS.

*

*

*

Sunday morning
of course was church at
St. John's Episcopal
in
Wellsville, NY

Half our tiny choir was home sick.
However the ones that were not prevailed and did a
WONDERFUL JOB
including the Communion Anthem of
" God With Us "
Very proud of them!



*

*

*

We had originally planned to attend the GVC concert yesterday,
but
when we got home post church and grocery shopping
to find the furnace completely not working,
everything changed.
[And when we write EVERY thing, we MEAN everything.]
We're sure it was a lovely concert.
Missed us some Vivaldi!

*

*

*

This is all for now folks!

[ of which we are one ]

The Genesee Valley Chorus,
in concert with
The Wellsville Performing Arts Orchestra

Vivaldi's
GLORIA

Nadda
Christmas
decoration
up here as of yet.

There are some leftover
Thanksgiving
decorations
piled in the living room though.

Removed the
" homegrown "
Halloween
decorations
yesterday afternoon:
Cobwebs hanging in the living room,
some quite impressive as a matter of fact.

Now I worry that I totally destroyed some
spider families
home
just before
the holidays.

I do not care so much for spiders,
but still........

Has anyone even
NOTICED
that
topic
we've avoided for what seems like an
ETERNITY
as of late
?

T'is killing me.

Enjoy it whilst you can.

GENETALIA  ODOR

[ Well "suck it up buttercup".  If one is trying to avoid politics,
we need SOMETHING to get your attention ! ]

"What's that SMELL ? "

For year's we've all known that at certain times
women
can have an
[almost unavoidable]
feminine odor.
No shock there.
God knows there are a multitude of
feminine hygiene products
to assist in this area.
[Question:  Isn't that like trying to cover up toilet smells with roses spray ?]

ANYWAYS,
what we did NOT know was that there is a term for
MEN
who have a
less than perfect perky penis
smell.

SWAMP  CROTCH
is what it's called.

I
am
NOT
making this up.

First of all,
Did YOU know of this term before now ?

I only learned it this spring/summer.

All gentlemen know that we need to take care of
The Family Jewels
but
I had never heard the term
SWAMP  CROTCH
until recently.

Regular long-term
KASIYH
Blog
readers
know that we try to
get and / or keep
y'all
up-to-date
on things you might not hear anywhere else.
[ Esp, but not limited to GAY things we've gone over with you in past posts]
so
here, perhaps,
is a
NEW
one
!   !   !

Now
we all know there are these things called
pheromones
that are suppose to attack us to one another, right?
There were even perfumes / colognes offered at one time
to attract the opposite
[ or same ]
gender
[ depending on which way your door swings ]

Wouldn't
SWAMP  CROTCH
be the extreme
OPPOSITE
of the
attracting
pheromones
?

I confess I am
LOL
here whilst writing this.
I am imagining certain readers and their reaction[s].

Lee Ann Lambert-Meehan
comes to mind right away.

Donna Holmes might also be in there
as I did mention the term
PENIS
once above.

Anyway,
isn't it
LOVELY
to realize that none of the people we know
would
EVER
have
SWAMP  CROTCH
?

What are
YOUR THOUGHTS
on the issue
?

I'll bet most of you are to danged
prissy
to comment.
























Windmills of Your Mind Ping-Pong match going on in my head. Not a bad thing actually, simply unstoppable for the present ...
