What if…3

Multiple babies born….

www.marionbell.com/what-if-3

This is my post for Thursday December 5th…

Things happen all the time, and usually are a pretty big surprise… “What if” Your wife was expecting, triplets… At the last visit to the doctors you were told that all babies where healthy and growing bigger… Okay, you are all prepared for three babies and all your families have been helping with the preparations for the births… As the days go by your wife keeps getting so big that walking is a chore for her…. The doctor says it’s all going well, and puts your wife on bed rest… It’s a week before the date of the births… The doctor books your wife into the hospital, and she is going to be induced the next morning… The nurses are all ready to take each child and take care of them… Kay your wife is brought into the operating room.. Kay will have caesarean births.. You have your armor on and you are sitting talking to your wife… The incision was made, and baby number 1 was a healthy girl… Baby 2 was a boy and baby 3 was a boy… Then the doctor keeps doing birth after birth.. The final baby was another girl.. You are blown away as the operating room becomes a flurry of nurses and doctors milling around.. You now have 7 babies… You give the family the news.. What are you going to do now?? You and Kay live with her parents, and room is what is going to be needed… What if mom and dad what to buy you a house for your new family… Would you want the house close to the relatives?? After all you will need all the help you can get… The births become a big event in your home town and all kinds of things are being given for the babies… The news paper has the big event on the front page.. Many people are ready to help when the babies come home.. Once the babies are at home, the house is filled with many people, and you and Kay can barely have time together… What would you do to have time together alone??? What if:  the family sends you away for a weekend, and Kay doesn’t want to go?? What would you do??? 

meteor.jpg                   A meteor hitting Earth…

What if: A scientist came on the television to tell the worlds population, that a meteor was heading straight for Earth… Also, the meteor impact is due in seven hours.. Would you try to get as far as you could away from the impact point?? Would you gather everyone you knew and take them with you?? The impact would set off a massive explosion that would be felt all around the world… The possibility of life being wiped off the surface of the planet was a definite… Would there be a safe place to go?? All Questions of what if:  There would be nothing that could be eaten, because of the explosion… Would you know where to look for water to drink?? What if: you came across a bomb shelter?? Would you move in there and hope for the best?? That would be a definite conundrum…. ‘What if’s’, can bring on just about anything, or any surprise… 🙂 🙂  Get ready for that which is out of your control…

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Everyone have a great weekend and the days leading up to that weekend…See you all on Tuesday next week.. Be safe  🙂 🙂

 

Sunshiny day…

This is my banter for Friday August 30th…

Hello everyone:: We got to Friday, and we all know what that means.. That means the start of that long weekend we have been waiting for.. Yahoo!! Get your jeans on and your tee-shirt add some comfortable shoes and pack up the car… The radar shows Florida is bracing for a hurricane.. My thoughts go out to all that live in the effected areas.. Which means that some where along the way, we will be receiving more rain.. As it stands the whole weekend looks fantastic.. Sun and cloud.. It maybe a bit on the cool side so pack up those jackets, sweaters and warm pants.. Get out there for the adventure you have been putting off for too long.. It’s the dead line for the last long weekend in 2019.. Just be safe on the byways…. Have fun, fun, fun… 🙂

DSCN1825 (3).JPG        I found this on the top of a small flowering plant..

I think it looks a lot like a dandelion, but the curious thing about it is I looked for a stem or the reminisce of the plant but there was none.. I looked around under the plants around it, but again there was no stem to be found.. This thing seemed to be wrapped around the top of a flowering plant… The plant has bright blue blooms, and absolutely no white on the plant.. I would chance to guess, that it may be a caterpillar.. It’s just weird how it was just thirty minutes laterand wow it vanished. Today (Thursday) I sat in the cool winds and sunshine of the day.. It was so peaceful, and relaxing, with the exception of a few tiny flies that kept landing on my nose.. They seem to b not afraid of being squashed.. I got a couple, and possibly ate a couple more.. Yummy, protein.. Just what I needed.. ‘I was a little hungry, but not anymore.’ I seen a spider coming across the deck.. He was not that big.. So, I stomped my foot on the deck to scare him off.. ‘Ya right, he wasn’t afraid.’ As small as he was he charged at me at full speed.. ‘Freaked me totally out.’ I was on my feet and looking for something to kill him with.. I turned to find him and he was gone.. What is it with spiders now?? All of a sudden they became brave.. ‘Heck, I had one sneak up on me while I sat on the couch.’ I almost peed my pants it scared me so much.. It wasn’t because it was there, but that it charged at me.. Thank god I was up off the couch or it would have been on me.. I won’t go into what would have happened if he was on me.. :0 I don’t like spiders.. Period..

DSCN1802 (3).JPG       Squirrels.. One of the funniest rodents in my back yard..

Today I captured these two small squirrels as they played in the bird feeder, and chased each other around in the branches of the trees.. This little fella climbed to the top of this plant hook and balanced himself there for quite a bit.. He was looking at the dog, who was watching his antics.. As you can see his buddy is just chill axing on the top board of the fence, and he is watching the neighborhood… He is also sitting on the two by four at the top part of the fence..  Just waiting I  guess.. Or perhaps he is catching his breath..

DSCN1803 (2).JPG        His freind seems to be waiting…

No matter what we think he is doing… I think he’s watching me take his picture.. You notice, he is giving me his best side, and the little paw under the chin… Now, tell me he’s not a diva.. I have a series of photos that depict the climber eating in weird positions..

DSCN1821 (2).JPG

If I had to eat like that I would fall on my head, and I would never be the same again.. Look how he’s holding on.. It looks like he is defying gravity.. Here’s another shot…

DSCN1808 (2).JPG

Don’t ask me what he is doing here.. I’m wondering if he is watching the chipmunk underneath him on the ground.. No matter what it is, he looks pretty weird.. Now this a photo of him eating..

DSCN1805 (2).JPG

 

Darn, I wish I could hang on like he is.. On the rim of the feeder.. What a show off.. No matter what anyone has to say.. They are a delight to have around.. Even if the older squirrel picks off the buds on the daisies, and sun flower.. Heres another photo…

DSCN1811 (2).JPG

Another upside down eating pose.. What a ham… He just loves the camera.. 

DSCN1828 (2).JPG

This young one is resting with his butt on the owl.. You see, the owl gets thrown off the tree from time to time.. The owl’s eyes light up at night.. I have attacked the owl with two bungie cords instead of one.. The last cord they chewed through and sent the owl to his death at the bottom of the tree.. As you can see they have managed to push the owl on it’s side, as before it was upright.. My hubby told me this squirrel put his tail over the eyes and the eyes lite up.. Scaring the squirrel out of the tree.. He won’t forget that one .. Now he will really be after the owl..

DSCN1806 (2).JPG

We have these ornamental frogs on the tree.. The frog on the fence was not put there by us.. It was put there by the squirrels.. It is supposed to be under the other frog attached to it’s hooks.. We find the frog on the fence on the ground lots.. He’s easy to knock off the tree.. 

Well, that’s about it for my banter for Friday.. I hope you enjoy the photos, and my words.. Take care of those you love, and be very safe this weekend.. This gal is leaving the station.. Till later.. Rock on the smile you have… 🙂 🙂

I would like to say thanks to all my readers for taking the time to read my banter.. 🙂 🙂   The photos you have seen in banter have been taken by myself.. Hope you enjoy… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Monday August 26th…

Hello everyone::  Well, how the heck is everyone on this fine day?? I know, I know Monday is crappy and the start to another week of work, chores, meetings, and god knows what else is waiting for you.. Just think once we get to the end of this week we will be celebrating the last long weekend of the summer.. I will be celebrating my oldest daughter’s Birthday, as she was born on Labor Day September first… Yes, I was one of those lucky ladies in the hospital.. Waiting for September the first to arrive.. My daughter will be fifty this year, and I can hardly believe she is that age.. She is aging well, and does not look near her age.. I recall the doctors, and nurses tossing water balloons at each other while they waited for her… The water balloons were plastic gloves filled with water.. Hey, they had to find someway to celebrate Labor Day.. I was too frozen to be worried.. After all I was in good hands and so was my daughter.. All the fine things  you go through when your young.. I wish you all a free flowing Monday, that glides along quickly enough to make things not so stressful.. Just keep repeating.. ‘The Long weekend is coming.’

DSCN1730 (3).JPG          This bee was filling up before he went back to the hive…

Both days this weekend were filled with sun shine, and cool breezes.. Just the right kind of day to explore the water front, take a walk in a park, or just heat up that barbeque, and have some fun with friends.. I did get spend lots of time outside, and take photos that caught my eye.. I chased bees around to get good pictures of them.. I just love being a shutter bug.. I know lots of other great shutter bugs that chase down that one photo that will catch everyone’s attention.. I take so may photos of one subject.. I take different angles, and pick the best out of the bunch.. I want very much to go to a camping type park to capture whatever I see of interest.. Sitting on the deck I seen an older couple on a two person bicycle.. It looked like it was an original.. I started to take off the lens cover of  the camera, but they were gone.. I almost think I should have a camera in my hand every minute.. With my luck the camera would shut down and by the time it comes back on the moment would be gone.. ‘Darn.’ That picture of the couple would have been a beauty.. Sunday night as I let the dogs out to do their business, I could hear tree frogs singing.. That’s the most beautiful sound ever.. Add a couple crickets and you have wonderful music.. The sounds of nature.. It’s better than the smells of a skunk… The cool breeze and no sun set the stage for a beautiful night to sit outside.. 

DSCN1772 (2).JPG           This photo is one of my favorites…

This photo is truly beautiful.. I love the way the sun casts it light on the middle of the flowers, and seems to bleach out their true color.. The shadows on the leaves tell a story of a place to hide in cool darkness.. Even the bee can not escape the sun’s light.. I could go on for quite awhile, but I won’t.. Like I have said before, there is always that perfect photo that draws you in, and makes you pause and stare.. My dog is doing well after seeing the vet last week.. She has a fair amount of meds, and has to wear a thing around her neck for a whole week.. She is not too happy about that.. I wouldn’t be either.. I makes it hard for her to drink, and eat.. If wearing, what I call her helmet, is not bad enough.. The pills make her hungry and thirsty.. Plus, she needs to take more frequent visits outside.. I just want this week to end so she feels better.. I have to hide her meds in peanut butter or she won’t take then.. She is just like a baby and as finicky as heck.. She will whine if she wants a drink.. At least she lets me know.. It’s a tricky thing to do with her helmet on her neck.. I’d  have a hard time eating with one of those things on me too… 

DSCN1771 (2).JPG            Busy little Bee…

Well, people this chickee is about to get going, and try to accomplish something today.. All of you take care of those you love, and be safe… Till later.. Never be a liar..

I would like to thank all my readers for taking the time out of your busy day to read my banter.. Thanks.. 🙂 🙂   The photos you see in this banter are taken by myself.. I hope you enjoy them.. 🙂 🙂

Impending storm…

This is my banter for Wednesday August 21st…

Hi there:: It’s really nice to see all your smiling faces out there.. How was your Tuesday?? I hope it was great, and another day gone this week.. We are on Hump Day, and there is no other way to go from here but to the weekend.. It’s funny how people use the weekend as carrot to get them through the week.. It was the only way I could get through the week when I used to work.. Then, when the weekend comes, there is not enough time to do all the things you like to do on your time off.. We all shuffle our feet, pouting, kicking and screaming all the way back to work on Monday.. I vote for four day weeks and long weekends every week.. Now a days, there is very little time for family. We hustle here and there, for this and that.. Whatever happened to just saying, to heck with it all and just kick back and relax.. We all strive too much for the all mighty dollar.. The more we have, the more we want.. That includes me as well.. Life is too short.. Tomorrow, could be our last day.. As morbid as it seems that’s how life goes.. I long for the Sunday dinner, and nothing but family time.. It’s a waste to have given that up for our desirer to be rich.. I don’t know if any body thinks or feels the same as I do.. Life is passing by way too fast.. I’m getting older, and haven’t quite come to terms with that..

DSCN1573 (2).JPG               This bee seems to have been working over-time….

Tuesday was a hot one in my part of the world.. Kind of muggy. But, curiously there was a warm yet calming breeze.. I ventured out to water the plants, and hang out with the dogs. The skies above look pretty dark at times, but there was no rain.. After dinner we watched the news and found out that our area is right on the tail of a storm.. About thirty minutes ago the rain fell in large drops, but only lasted a bit of time.. The good old weather man said the storm was going to be a big one. He gave everyone a few  signs to watch out for in the skies.. When the rain was tapping on the gazebo, the sky was greenish black, with the sun shining off in the distance.. That may have been it.. If that’s the case, that’s a bonus.. At this point there is a lot of the day to go through.. There maybe more rain.. I would be very unhappy if I woke up with the wind slapping against the bedroom window. With things flying every where.. That’s not a way to wake up.. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that doesn’t happen.. Whatever happens I will be here snuggled in with the dogs.. Where ever you are I hope and pray that you are safe..

DSCN1597.JPG               This is Sun flower plant…

There is a story to this plant.. It started to grow in spring, in a pot on the deck after the winter.. We had no idea what it could be, nor how it got there.. I didn’t plant it, nor did my hubby.. It just appeared in the pot.. While it was growing the top of the plant was snipped off and taken by a nasty squirrel.. Not only did it take off the top, it took it with him.. We figured that was the end of the plant.. We did not get rid of it, we just left it there on the deck.. A few weeks ago the plant started to get blossoms on it.. During the time that happening, we found out what the plant was… Guess what it is a Sun flower.. So, the mystery of the unknown plant has been solved.. My day has been a slow one with not too much to do.. I played that nerve bending game. I won a couple times but now I am stuck in the same place.. Crap!!! I’ve almost been near the point of deleting it off my device.. But that would make me feel like a quitter.. No way will I let this game beat me.. ‘I will fight to the end!’ ‘I don’t know if my nerves can last that long.’ So, if you see me wondering around the streets in a daze, you will know the game won.. Till later.. Take care of those you love, and never take a wooden nickel… 🙂 🙂

I would like to thank all those who read my banter each day.. 🙂 🙂  The photos in my banter have been taken by myself.. Hope you enjoy them.. 🙂 🙂

Relaxing…

DSCN1470.JPG          I love the textures, and colors….

www.marionbell.com/relaxing

This is my banter for Wednesday August 14th..

Hello everyone:: Today has pretty much been a day of relaxing.. Doing the little things I enjoy, and catching up on whatever I have let lag behind.. I have plenty of art pieces that someday I am going to finish off. I have one piece of art that I started on in 2002.. I found the sketch I had done, and figured it was time to bring it to life with pastels. This is my first time for oil pastels. I actually enjoyed doing the color transformation. Once that was done my hubby cut pieces of base board wood and I created a picture frame. Because the sketch has the red mountains in it, I took crushed pieces of colored stone, and attached them around on the frame.. I wanted to bring the earthy feel into the frame.. I think it turned out not too bad.. I like it.. 

IMG_E5197              And so… This is what I came up with.. Finished…

I never seem to do the ordinary.. I always come up with what my mind sees. As you can tell by my photographs, I see what others do not see.. I have a painting I did around the same time as I did the sketch you see here.. I did it in acrylic paints, which are easier to use.. At least that is what I think.. 

IMG_E5199.JPG          This is the acrylic I had done back in 2002…

This is my hubbies favorite painting… I do other forms of creating.. When I’m relaxing I create my best… All are one of a kinds, and none two are the same.. I enjoy taking photos, creating sculptures, painting, I even created a few Halloween creatures.. There are no limits to what I can achieve.. Today was very hot again. The sun was a little too much for a few plants. First thing I needed to give the droopy plants a drink of water.. It amazes me how plants can bounce back once water has been added… We have a lot of water plants that need constant water to live.. There is no neglecting them, as they will be dead in to time.. I also took a few plants and pruned them and took out all the dead flowers, and old branches.  They look one hundred percent better now.. It’s hard to keep them healthy at least during this time of the year..

DSCN1458.JPG                  Now, this looks like a pretty nice place to relax….

I did not stress over dinner today. Fries, and sausage on a bun was easy and tasted good too.. Simple eats can fill the tummy just like a full course meal.. Sometimes cooking becomes a chore that I would prefer not do some days.. I get all stressed out thinking about what to make.. Don’t miss understand me, I love cooking, but day after day is so hum drum. I feel like a robot that just repeats what has  been done a million times.. This Saturday I will be cooking for our family barbeque.. Now that I am looking forward to, and my menu has been set in stone.. I love to see people enjoy the food I create.. It will be fun to have most of the family together at the table..

DSCN1451.JPG            A nice bike ride through the camp ground…

As the day drifted away, the air became cool and bearable. So cool that sitting out on the deck was quite relaxing.. Once the sun has slipped behind the trees. The sun casts long shadow across the yard. I like that time of the day. It’s so calming. Sitting on the deck watching all kinds of people walking by. Dogs on leashes, and children complaining while asking. ‘How much further?’ You would almost they are going to die, by the performance they give their parents.. I see a lot of ladies walking and talking loudly on their cell phones. I would think, loud talking would be somewhat of a security blanket.. Away to deter those who prey on ladies who are alone in the dark.. You can hear them approach, then disappear into the darkness. I love the little children who play with no re-guard for others.. They run like lightening, and say hi to everyone.. Oh to be a child again.. I often wonder how many people would change the life, as they have it right now. And want to get a chance for a new course and direction.. This way your future would not be as it is.. Oh to be young again.. My body would not hurt anymore..  

I must be on my way.. I hope to see all of you on Wednesday, as it is a new start for all of us.. Till later.. Stand tall and don’t take any unnecessary crap.. 🙂 🙂

I would like to thank all the readers who take the time out of their busy day to read my banter.. 🙂 🙂 As usual all the photos, and works of art are done by ME:: Maggie.. 🙂 🙂

Busy…

DSCN1456.JPG         I wonder who lives in there…..

www.marionbell.com/busy

This is my banter for Tuesday August 13th..

Hi there everyone… Today was pretty hot out and I did my very best to stay out of the heat. Like most people I tend to become cranky when the heat is too much for me.. The day was truly beautiful in every respect, other than fairly hot. My little pup, that likes to sit on the deck in the sun as she guards her yard. She had to come in because it was too hot. For her that is not her usual.. She has fun watching the squirrels till she think they are used to her, then she goes taring after them at a high speed. The squirrels don’t care, they just sit up in the trees scolding her… It’s quite comical.. I did go out long enough to water the plants on the deck.. Then into the house I disappeared.. Once in the house I drank my tea, and wondered about what to make for supper.. I know, I know, it was too early to think about dinner. But with two hungry guys coming home wanting food as soon as they enter the house. Well, I decided that dinner would be pork chops, potatoes, and a vegetable.. I went into the deep freezer and found out that the pork chops where buried under mounds of other frozen items. I’ll tell ya, it is not hot in there.. I came out of the freezer with the tips of my finger cold as ice.. These fingers could have anyone jumping out of their skin.. Mission accomplished meat out of freezer, and thawing in a ice cold sink of water.. Time to get back at drinking my tea, and waking up.. Or should I say, I am awake thanks to the cold freezer…

DSCN1462.JPG        This curious looking item at first looked like a Dragon…

                     It’s a beautiful piece of wood..

While drinking my tea, I stared at the carpet with disgust. I knew it would have to be vacuumed. But the dirty patches from muddy slippers, dog feet, and splotches made by spills. I do not have a large carpet cleaner, and the only one I have is for spot pick ups.. The little green devil is what I believe the store calls it. I was going to clean this carpet today, and that was final.. I made my way to the basement to get the machine and the cleaning products.. I filled my arms with bottles containing liquids for stains, something for bubbles, and something to deodorize the carpet. I held the small machine in my loose fingers… Up the stairs I trudged. I tried my best not to let anything get away from me. As I made it to the top step, I juggled the bottles in my arms, and stood watching them roll down the stairs and come to rest on the floor.. ‘Shoot!’ I said, as I opened the basement door and placed the machine on the floor of the hallway. I turned and made my way down the stairs to gather all the bottles up in my arms… There was no way I would let them get away this time.. I had left the door open to the basement, so I didn’t have to juggle the bottles again.. Into the kitchen with the bottles, and placed them on the counter.. I went back to get the machine, and close the basement door.. I actually felt a little more alert after the stair exercises I just did.. Maybe I will make that trip on the stairs part of my wake up routine.. ‘NOT!!’ I don’t know if I want to be that awake..

DSCN1461.JPG       This is another view of the dragon in the forest…

On bended knees I scrubbed the spots, spills, and dirt away. The water from the carpet was a dark murky mud bog color. I could not believe how terrible the water looked.. The carpet looked great, and was actually softer on the toes.. And the pile of the carpet looked brushed and beautiful.. I had done what I had set out to do, some two hours before.. I knew it would be a long process, but the results were worth the time.. My knees were not too happy at all. They were red and sore.. And they stayed that way for the rest of the day.. ‘Ouch!’ I’m glad that’s over. Well, I have run into the dinner time area of the day.. It’s time to cook, or should I say barbeque.. That seems to bring out the true flavors of the meat.. With table set and hungry fellas standing close by, it was time to eat.. And man, where those chops tasty.. A nice relaxing dinner, and everyone full.. Time to watch the news to see what has happened in the world today… After the news was done I finished up the carpet by vacuuming it.. I was done for the day, the rest of this day was mine, and mine alone.. 

DSCN1464.JPG        The forest has eyes.. Look closely and you will see…

I love a day when everything comes together the way you planned it.. Grant you, I have had plenty days that got blown out of the water by interruption, a catastrophe, or just things not working right.. But, Monday was one of the good days.. 

Join me Tuesday as I share my banter with all of you… Take care and be good.. And if you can’t for whatever reason, just do it well… 🙂 🙂

I would like to thank all my readers for stopping in to read my banter… 🙂 🙂  Like usual all the photos in this banter were taken by: me  Maggie… 🙂 🙂

Another banter…

DSCN1329.JPGAs seen through my eyes….

www.marionbell.com/another-banter

This is my banter for Friday August 9th.

Today has been a lazy kind of day. With rain in the morning and rain in the early after noon. It’s been an inside day.. Boring… I had ventured outside in the morning rain to let the pups out to do their thing. The rain was like a soft shower, where the water does not peel off you skin… The kind of showers that you just want to stand in for an hour. I know you would have pruned feet, if you stood in the shower for that long.. But, you know what I mean.. I returned to let the pups back in the house, and the rain had stopped. I could not believe how sticky, and muggy it felt after just a few minutes before. Steamy is a better way to describe the outside air. I watched from the inside of the house as I drank my one and only cup of green mint tea. The sun would be blasting  heat, then it got dark. This repeated about six or seven times. It was really weird… I just relaxed and got myself motivated for some house cleaning.. I sat playing a game I like and the next thing I knew it was eleven-thirty…. I had not even had my bowl of cereal yet… I kind of get really caught up in the game, and I loose track of time.. Once the cereal was done, I just had to get dressed… My mind was telling me, ‘don’t get dressed, no ones coming over.’ My mind made sense, but going outside in my back yard in a night shirt seemed a bit too risky to me. Up the stairs I went to dawn my clothing. It was now twelve-thirty and I needed to vacuum as soon as possible.. The puppy hair was driving me crazy.. 

DSCN1332.JPG    Part off our garden, I believe this is a Japanese Fern….

The kitchen sink was littered with dishes, so I started to clean them up, and clean the over dated leftovers out of the refrigerator. I like to catch all the stuff before it turn green in color. If you have ever open one of that kind of container, you will know what I mean… When I open one a container like that, I usual say to myself.. ‘Oh, penicillin.’ That is before the smell can get to me.. I opened a container of milk once that was sour. Of course the only way to see if it is sour is to smell or taste it…. This brings back memories of when I was a child, and we stayed at my aunts place over night. In the morning the milk in our glasses was sour. We had to drink that milk. That was the worst thing you could do.. So every time I would rather smell the milk than taste it. ‘Totally gross.’ With dishes and kitchen taken care of it was time to vacuum.. I dusted the rugs with a deodorizing powder from gain. If you are even going to us this… ‘Don’t.’  My rug now is stained with white powder that the vacuum won’t pick up.. Thanks to that crap. I now have to shampoo the carpets.. Yahoo! Just what I did not want to do.. I have a very good vacuum, a Dyson… I chased the dog hair around the floor as my Dyson sucked up the hair. Vacuuming done… I look out the door and it is raining so darn hard. So hard that you can actually see the rain falling in a straight down line… Now, that’s raining, or should I say pouring…

DSCN1328.JPG         Same flowers different view…

Once I had finished all the clean up I needed to do, it was time for a sit down and a drink of cold water.. It was drawing closer to the time to figure out what to have for supper… Potatoes. ‘What else could I come up with?’ ‘Hummm.’ Pork chops. There ya go, and through in a vegetable, some bread and butter, and there you have supper. Now that I knew what I was going to make for supper, and I had a couple hours till then. ‘Guess what I did?’ I played my game till dinner making time finally came around. And that was my boring day…. 🙂 🙂

I hope you all Have a great Friday, and weekend.. I will see you come Monday with either some banter or maybe a new story… Till then.. Be safe and enjoy your weekend… 🙂 🙂

I would like to say thanks to all my readers for joining me and reading my banter…. 🙂 🙂 The photos placed amongst my banter have been taken by myself.. Maggie… Hope you enjoy… 🙂 🙂
