No nourishment at all.. Just laying there, waiting....
It's so terrible seeing him like that. His body is preparing for death.
And we....it's so unreal. I can't belive it's true! He is dying. Slowly. Painfully.
And his mind works 100%, and thats probobly the 'worst thing'...
Lying there dying, knowing it, and you cant communicate.
He is so frustrated and helpless...

Im sorry.. I just had to put it out there.... Thanx for reading..

Now, back to you guys and MMC.
Hope everyone is doing fine!
I have some posts to read - looking forward to that ♥
Oh Solice, I am so sorry for the pain and suffering your FIL is going through as well as the agony you all feel as his family watching this horrible turn of events. You NEVER have to apologize for posting anything. Families stick together through thick and thin and your Christmas family is here for you no matter what. I will keep praying for all of you. Please know that you are thought of every day and are loved, xo

Good Morning, Festive Friends of Fantastic Fun Frolics.

Now for someting that will really make you feel like frolicking:
Days to the Season: 269
Days to Christmas Day: 311
Day after tomorrow -- SINGLE DIGITS to the 300-day Christmas Day Milestone and double-200's count territory.
(We are so moving through this year. Over half way through February already!)

Cold, wet and snowy yesterday but without accumulation, as the temperature stayed over the freezing mark all day.
It is supposed to remain cold today but with no more precipitation.
At this hour, we stand at 27 chilly degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Super Sunday, Everyone!
And let the spirit of the Season keep you warm.

Good Morning Everyone!

I don't want to be rude but I only had time to read some of your post and don't have time to respond to any. This is my busiest day of the week! All good, fun and positive stuff but BUSY!

Wayne and I were very busy yesterday too. We started the day sometime around 8:00 am and didn't get home until after 7:00 pm. (Well, we did drop by the house a couple of times in the afternoon to drop things off and get a bite to eat). Anyway, we ran lots of errands, came home and took our bikes out for a ride, then headed back out again. We went out for dinner, ran more errands then came home to listen to the Greasy Skillet! We had a fun day!!! We finally got our bike rack for the car so we can take them out to the lake. I am getting excited about that!



Coach, glad your wife is feeling better!

Caninemom, I know all too well about foods that make you sick. Seems to happen to me ALL THE TIME! I hope you feel better today!!!

Get yourself one of those DVDs while it's still in print. You'll find it's an improvement over the ones you've seen so far.

We've always had a soft spot for Sir Seymour's Scrooge---and it's very faithful to the tone and atmosphere of Dickens. And you'll see the most frightening version of Old Joe's shop. And the absolute best Bob Cratchit in all the movies: Donald Calthrop.

If there's ever an MMC convention, make sure there's a 16mm projector and a dark room available, and we can run the print I spoke of that was struck only one year after the film was released. You'd see this version of Scrooge with new eyes! But that DVD version is the next best thing.

I'm all for that.... Set a projector up, I'lll bring the popcorn all we would need then, would be some Lazyboys and some hot tea, lol....

I Love, just love to watch old movies, I yearn for the yester years but sadly, no one else here does in my home....So for the most part, I go without . My wife, kids and family has told me many time that I have an old soul, that well, I was sort of born out of my time.

I mean, I'm up on the times and electronics to a degree, but I really thrive for the simpler things in life....where life, family, values, faith, honesty, trust and simplicity is a key to the path of happiness. Now adays, "it's the all about me", fast pace, fast food, fast whatever lifestyles.... And for the movies and electronics, SD, HD, 3D, 4D, LED, LCD, plazma, projection, pixles per inch, Cat 6, USB, fiber optics, blue ray; ugggh when is enough enough?

Well, I do admit, at least with some things, they do look really nice but as with everything, it comes with a cost. Me, pass me the bowl of popcorn and put on an old movie like say, Captain Blood, Robin Hood, Ivanhoe, stagecoach, etc... I'm happy....

I cant wait to take the bikes out. (In April - May!?)
A bike rack for the car it's a good idea!! Why haven't I thought of that? =)
