When I get home tonight, I will cook up a pot of rice over which we will spoon a piece of chicken and the yummy sauce. Yummo! I love coming home to my dinner cooked in the crockpot. A real good cold-night dinner! Hope everyone has a great day! Take care!


Yummy!!!!!

I as well as some others in here are in tough times right now with work and all kinds of other things. And for some work is little or far in between and we hate it. But some day everyone will have plenty to do again. But need to remember these days when the good days come along and you have to much work and want less work. I know I do but it is hard sometimes. I find weathering lean days in the end makes you more productive and better at watching what you do with your money.
Just going to share something here if I may about something that happened to me once not saying it is happening to anyone here at MMC but made me really understand something when I was younger.
I was getting ready to head to Lake Okeechobee to spend about a month fishing right after Christmas many moons ago and was telling this to an old family friend. Now this was a man who had a large excavating company and had done very well for himself. But he leaned his Santa Claus shaped figure back in his chair laced his fingers across his chest and asked me what this was going to cost. I told him the plan and so forth. He then started asking me if a month was really all that necessary why not ten days to two weeks like anyone else who took a vacation. I told him I had the money to do so. Well ole wise Roy knew me very well. Well enough to know yes I had the money but did I really have the money. He told me in one sentence something to this day I have never forgotten and it has got me over a few humps since then. Roy told me when I had enough wood in the wood pile to keep the stove going for a year then taking some wood elsewhere and burning it was ok. Because everyone at some time in their life faces a shortage in the wood pile and thatís when as a rule trees to cut become hard to find or are too far away.
And he was right.
To this day some thirty-six years later I still remember this.
I am very thankful to this day to all the elders in my life that not only taught me, but tried to teach me during some of my many hard headed episodes. Things about life that even today no matter how advanced we are or how much smarter we think we are, they still was right, and thatís how life really is.
