July 30, 2001 - Msg 1438: Good Morning! I wanted to beat Hazel at it this morning. I got up to fix hubby's lunch for work. I think I'll go back to bed. I was either too hot or too cold last nite. It is all the humility that came back in.
Lovely poem Tom - reminds me of a website I found yesterday pertaining to the Jimmy Stewart Museum.
Asa, last year everyone wanted on my Christmas list once they found out I made salsa. They wanted me to make it in quarts as gifts - I told them I ain't that nice. I won't be making any if my maters don't turn a redder shade of green.
Oh well- I'm crawling back under the covers. I have 14 more days before this is my usual wake-up time.


July 30, 2001 - Msg 1439: you have to get up purty early in the mornin to beat Hazel to the porch! LOL Mornin' homemaker make ya a deal, I won't ask for a quart of yer salsa if ya send me the recipe. LOL
*Mavis thanks!

July 30, 2001 - Msg 1440: had to check the archives, Tom the cats are doin good, if they would just quit invitin' coons & postums over for dinner I'd have it made! LOL

July 30, 2001 - Msg 1441: Mercy, I'm gona have to start getting up at 4:00 a.m. I guess. This will just not do with Homemaker and Mavis getting up before me. Least you could do is start the coffee. Had to check the archives to see if I missed anything. Nice poem, Tom. In answer to your question, I'm from Idaho. (I hope no one throws a rock at me) - Hazel

July 30, 2001 - Msg 1442: Mornin all. Looks like everyone can't wait to get up and after it this morning. I aint got no coon dog Mavis. Sorry about that. Try a pitching wedge out in your garden.
Sounds like homemaker is being really secretive about her salsa. I beggining to think she's got herself a a secret ingrediant. Wonder what it is.
Hazel, I didn't know you was from Idaho. [hey that rhymes] We be almost neighbors. I'm just south of ya. You gotta have potatoes in your garden then, don't ya? I thought that was a state law.
Well I'm off to work. Talk at ya'll later.


July 30, 2001 - Msg 1443: I am sorry Hazel, but I don't drink coffee. Perhaps you would do with a cup of nicely fresh brewed tea. Or since it is the afternoon now - how about a nice tall glass of iced sweet tea.
I made fresh potato salad with some Idaho's - I don't grow those. And I thought of you!
And Asa, as far as my salsa recipe - do you remember the commercial "ancient Chinese secret!" It is easier than you think! :-}
Mavis, our Jack Russell would probably kill the coon and or possum, I know she is not real fond of cats or moles. I'll email you my "secret" recipe for salsa too.
Probably won't talk to you all anymore today. So have a wonderful afternoon and evening.

July 30, 2001 - Msg 1447: I'm gona do just that, Floyd. I think I got a good recipe for salsa, too. Probably not as good as Homemakers, but I like it. - Hazel

"I always forget that rule..."

July 30, 2001 - Msg 1448: Hey Floyd didn't know we could add to that there cookbook, I got some other recipes for it if you like. No pickles tho, sorry! LOL

I sure hope I will find time to visit the porch once I am back at work. I know I will have to use my prep time (that is a joke) to do my porch sitting. Only high school and middle school teachers get real prep time in our area. Elementary teachers are lucky to get a bathroom break. Maybe I'll sneak in really early in the morning - long before Hazel is up and say Hey!
Well - my daddy is picking me about 6 - 7 dozen ears of corn today to freeze so I best be getting ready for it. Hope to visit later!

The Lord has been with me every step of the way, and things are starting to look up. So don't go punnishin' yourselves inside or nuthin'.
Miss Ellie, I know that even though an ISP advertises a certain speed, you are still limited to the quality of the PHONE LINES that you connect to them by. The speed they advertise is 'top possible speed', not 'average speed' and during peak hours of the day, it can get even slower.

I visited my classroom today also. . .my new room is in the locker room due to building re-construction. It should be some year. :-{ Deaf and hard of hearing kids in a shower room that echoes!!! At least I am getting carpeting and I'll have my internet hook-up.

So he goes to speech therapy three times a week and has a hearing impaired teacher come in two times a week to help him out. But he does all right. He has worn a auditory trainer since first grade. Last year they changed to the speaker box that sits on his desk and his grades took a nose dive. So this year we are going back to the headset. (It was his decision!) I think that it really does make a difference. Tell me your opinion.

August 03, 2001 - Msg 1505: Hey Fun Girl. . .you are right up my alley. I would advise getting him a trainer with maybe an earmold instead of a headsets. Less noise discrepncy that way. It sounds like he has typical HI (hearing impaired) problems with language. Some good ideas now that school is getting ready to start 1)preview social studies, science, health chapters with him- even before he has them in class. He'll know what's coming up. 2)Make sure you preview the vocab. 3)Also preview reading stories and vocab. 4) Ask for study guides at the beginning of the chapter and not three days before the test. That will make a difference too. Sorry - I'll get off my soap box. Been an H.I. teacher pert near 15 years. Sorry for taking up space.

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1528: Good evening Mavis, Fun Girl, Tom, Hazel and where oh where is ASA!!!?? Special greetings to Roary - you come back and sit a spell, we'll watch the fireflies and the corn grow. This porch is right nice to be sittin' on!

It has been a fun day at the homemaker's house - one fell down and broke his crown, one played with a goat and got his crown scratched. A little blood never hurt anyone. I'm a Band-aid mom extra-ordinaire!
Have a good evening - time to settle down for awhile.


August 04, 2001 - Msg 1529: I guess Asa must be on vacation. Don't he know he's suppose to tell us when he leaves? Fun Girl told us when she left, so we didn't worry about her. I just hope he didn't fall in a well again.

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1530: That was Hazel, by the way.

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1531: Floyd: Boy!! You fall down a well, you're WET!

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1532: This is my first visit,and ya'll are great!Just love the conversation!
About the little hearing impaired boy,a neighbor of mine has a daughter that was born deaf in one ear and has a coclear implant now and can hear and even learning to speak much more clearly.Don't know much about them,just thought I'd be neighborly and mention it since we're just sittin'.fifechick

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1533: Since we're just sitting and visitin', firechick, I'll mention that my daughter knows sign language and has always had an interest in that sort of stuff. She's been a aid for 3 years running for kids at the high school who have special needs. Welcome to the porch, fifechick - Hazel

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1534: Didn't mean to call you firechick there in my first line. I really need to proofread my posting better. I didn't mean to imply that I think you go around startin' fires, or anything like that... - Hazel

Barney: How do you fight fire?
Andy: With a hose?

August 04, 2001 - Msg 1535: Well we talked to them there city doctor's about Little Opie's ears and they said them Cochlear Implants don't help on his type of hearing loss. His has to do with the nerves. Vut taks for mentioning it fifechick. I think that tomorrow or next week at the latest I will have to face the music and go shopping for Opie some school clothes. I ain't to big on shopping, but I'll be durned if Opie hasn't gotten tall and slender this summer and all his pants are falling down around his ankles. Next weekend I am going to Michigan for a blue grass festival. My darling boys are playing the guitar and fiddle. It is held during the county fair. Two fairs in two weeks. Now that's adventure living. What ever did I do before I found the porch. Anybody heard anything from Asa? Maybe we ought to call Barn and put out an APB.

August 05, 2001 - Msg 1542: Well, we went clean into Mt. Pilot and got the boy some new britches and shoes for school. Now all we need to do is take him over to Floyd's and get his ears lowered and he will be all set. (No that ain't no fancy surgery for the hearing impaired, it just means getting his hair cut. LOL)
It sure is quiet around here. I hope Asa ain't gone fishing and fell asleep and rolled in the lake.
Guess I'll sign off for the day. See ya'll tomorrow for sure. As always, your Fun Girl
