Multiple babies born….

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???

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…

I have seen…

This is my thoughts for Wednesday November 6th…

I have seen, the dew on the spider’s web on a cold crisp morning in October… I have seen the fields covered with fog, and the fog hanging on the trees.. This beauty of paradise right before my eyes.. I have walked those fields behind the plow.. I have seen boulders of all sizes, as my horse trudges along dragging the plow behind.. I have seen the wheat grow tall and fall in the winds that blow.. I have seen the trees with fruit for all to eat… I have seen the corn so tall that you can not see above it.. I have seen the bounty in the fall, as the leave turn colors from green to gold… I have seen the call of the wolf in the cold of a December night… I have heard the wind howl out my name in the darkness.. I have been here before…

DSCN2652 (3).JPG           Sister and brother…

I have seen the smile of a child and the love he has for his sister.. I have seen the interaction between a sister and brother… I have seen their joy.. I have seen a mother’s love, as she holds her child close.. I have witnessed the strong hands of a father gently leading his child through life.. I have seen the child tumble and fall, as it’s tiny feet take their first tiny steps.. I have seen the child grow tall and strong, as they grow older… I have seen a family hold their lives together as one.. I have witnessed the end of a life, as age takes them away… I have seen a son hold his father’s hand for the last time.. I have know the memories left behind… I have seen a new life being born, as an elder leaves this earth… I have seen….

DSCN1489.JPG             The moon behind the trees…

I have seen the darkness fall, as the moon peaks from behind the trees.. I have witnessed the rivers flowing to the seas, and the bubbling water from the ground… I have been in crowds of people who pass me by.. I have seen friends come and go in the blink of an eye.. I have seen the horses run free, and the whales travel the oceans blue.. I have held the sun in the palm of my hand.. I have howled loudly at the moon, as I see the sunrise come.. I have walked this planet from end to end, and still I wonder far and wide.. I have seen the unknow, I have faced the devil and held God’s hand.. I have given my heart to one man to protect forever… I have seen the world begin and I will seen the world end.. For I will see…

An adventure…

This is my banter for Friday September 6th…

Hello everyone:: Thursday went way to fast.. I hope your Thursday was an acceptable one.. We have come even closer to the weekend and a break from the money making hustle.. Driving down busy streets or highways is an endless journey many people take each day.. The countless hours lost with family.. The all mighty dollar calls all of us.. It shapes what we are and how we live.. Our habits, and our needs.. Sometimes it makes us who we are.. Our future evolves around money making.. We are slaves of the corporations that pay us that all mighty dollar.. We march to the beat of their drum.. It’s an endless march that is broken when the weekend comes.. Then we are independent operators of our lives.. We do what we want and when we want to.. For two or three days we are in charge.. Then after that brief escape we are poisoners again.. I thank god for the time we get to breath and relax.. So take in that deep breath and enjoy your weekends.. 

van - Copy.jpg                           On an adventure…

I will be on such an adventure for the next ten days.. I will not be posting any banter, from Saturday September 7th until the day of  Tuesday September 17th.. There will be no internet where we are going.. Hence, the lack of banter being posted.. There will be peace and quiet.. Away from the rate race, and city life.. We will be able to gaze at the stars in the sky in pitch darkness.. The only light we will have is the fire or lantern light.. We will be able to hike to the top of the mountains.. Look down upon the beauty below us.. We will hear the call of the wild.. The screech of the hawks, and the coo of the owls.. Birds will be singing.. The cicada will buzz as I lays it’s eggs in the trees.. We will hear the crickets sing, and tree frogs calling to each other.. We will hear the buzzing of the bees.. I will smell the fish in the waters before me.. We will hear the crunching of the branches as a deer walks past.. We will swim in the cool waters of a lake.. We can walk down abandoned railway tracks that lead us into the fog.. We shall walk through the forest haze.. We will see the shadows that follow us there..

We will feast on food that has been cooked over an open fire.. We will dance around the fire as many have before us.. I will feel the cool breezes caressing my face as my mind wonders into the light of the fire.. I will watch as the fire flies dance in the night.. I will feel freedom from that which is left behind.. I will visit places I have never seen, and talk to people I do not know.. I will be here where I have wanted to be for so long.. I will carry my camera by my side and capture the beauty I see with my eyes.. I can share that which I see with everyone I know.. I will gather memories to keep for all time.. To look back on the past, and feel calm inside.. For I will be there once again..

shadow person.jpg                           The shadows follow me..

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a good week coming up.. I am looking forward to the adventure that we are embarking on.. The time away is going feel like a renewal of my former self.. Go find your adventure, and rejuvenate yourself.. You’ll love the journey.. Till I return in ten days.. I wish everyone hope, love and peace.. This gal has got to get moving… Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.. Be safe when you travel and enjoy each day.. Till later.. Keep the shiny side up… 🙂 🙂 🙂 :0

I would like to thank all my readers for being here each day.. Thanks.. 🙂 🙂   I would like to thank all the fantastic artists for their creations in this banter.. Enjoy  🙂 🙂

Quiet Day…

www.marionbell.com/quiet-day

This is my banter for Thursday August 29th…

Hello out there:: Has everyone had a good day this Wednesday? I hope you are all well, and in great spirits..  Today (Wednesday) for me has been very quiet, and relaxing.. I can’t believe that I am yawning.. Anyone would think that I didn’t sleep at all last night.. I know I did, because when I looked in the bathroom mirror a strange looking creature looked back at me.. The same one that is there every morning.. I swear she waits for me.. I don’t pay much mind to this creature for she is my inner beast.. That which I keep hidden away in darkness.. Once in a while, this beast appears.. Her growl is fierce.. Her eyes shine in blazing green… Her nostrils are flared, and her teeth are clenched.. The red on her lips is like red fire.. I draw her back inside, and turn the key to keep you safe.. We all have the beast in different degrees.. Some can control their beast, and others live in the shadows of their beast.. There are many factors that cause the beast to stay outside.. Drugs, drinking alcohol, or just plain anger brought on by jealousy, envy, or greed.. I prefer to live in calm comfort, away from the beast with in me.. Only trouble can be found by the beast we all try to hide.. It is true that my eyes turn green when I an angry.. Normally they are blue.. 

DSCN1800 (2).JPG         The coming of fall has changed the plants..

Even though the plants become raggedy the bees find their nectar sweet as honey.. Fall is coming our way, and the gardens will whither and die.. When spring comes the gardens will be alive with color, and insects visiting each bloom.. I’m not looking forward to the winter, and the freezing cold.. The snow maybe cold but the puffy white mounds are pleasure for adults and children.. The fall is a beautiful time.. The leaves show off their colors, and coat the ground hiding blades of grass.. The little animals can be seen rushing around, stocking up for the winter.. Birds fly south, and winter birds arrive.. Various wild animals are on the hunt for a place to sleep.. A cave, a hole in the ground, a hole in a tree… Any place will do, as long as it’s warm and dry.. The breeze blows cool and strong.. Leaves fly through the air, and can land in your hair.. The once warm rain is cold, and miserable.. There are many beautiful parts of the fall.. Sitting around a camp fire.. Wrapped in a blanket from head to toes.. Sitting in your chair the cold is freezing your behind.. While the fire toasts your toes, and fingers.. When inside the fire place warms your behind, and warm hot chocolate fills your tummy.. There are good sides to every kind of weather.. Last night we did not get rain over night.. As far as right now is concerned the rain only sprinkled for five to ten minutes.. Not enough to fill a shot glass.. Maybe tonight more will fall…

DSCN1788 (2).JPG        Just starting to bloom…

I must say we are not far from the long weekend.. The roads will be teaming with loaded cars, trailers, campers, and motor homes.. Just remember with the long weekend the police will be out in full force on the look out for different offences.. Talking on your cell phone, drinking and driving, not paying attention to the road, and the biggest one of all speeding.. They will even be out on the waters ticketing the same offences.. So, be aware… If you have had a drink or two, let someone else drive that has not been drinking.. And if you are tired find a place to pull off the road and catch a twenty minute nap.. Then get coffee.. If we all follow the rules, we can all be safe.. I know there are many out there that think they are invisible.. That ain’t true.. So, buck up and follow the rules of the road.. Don’t become the next person on the road under a tarp.. Be safe…

DSCN1780 (2).JPG   Another busy bee..

It’s time for me to scoot along.. Take care of those you love, and be safe on the roads.. Till later.. Don’t pee in the wind… 🙂 🙂

Thanks to all my readers for coming out to read my banter… 🙂 🙂    The photo’s in this banter are taken by Me.. 🙂 🙂  Hope you enjoy

The rain falling from the sky. Playing in the puddles as your hair becomes wet and stringy. Your clothes feel like the rain has made them shrink. Your clothing contours to each bulge, and shape of your bodies form.
