John & Linda Braun

FIRST DAY OF SPRING COMING MARCH 20, 2018

This has been the weirdest winter I can remember!  Here it is, the second week of March, and we still have a ton of snow in our yard!  We have shovelled out a pathway for the dog to go out the back door and can’t even see him, the snow is so deep!  Lots of shovelling to do.  Thankfully our neighbour comes over with his little John Deere tractor to clear the driveway and the back alley behind our garage, but we have the sidewalk and paths in the back yard to do by hand.  John brought out our daughter’s little electric snow thrower for part of it.  With his recent stent installed, he has to take a rest from shovelling for a while and then continue.  I did my share on the other side of the house where the dog run is.  Still have the deck to do…   It is hard to believe that spring will be here in just over a week!

COMINGS AND GOINGS…

While John was in the hospital in January, he became acquainted with a gentleman from Meath Park who was in the next bed and who also had 4 stents put in.   The two new friends were trying to arrange to get together for a visit after returning home, however, he cannot drive yet and his wife doesn’t drive, and we have not ventured up to Meath Park to visit them there.  We are hoping to get together soon, as it would be a shame to lose contact.  We seem to be busy busy busy doing nothing important for the most part…  John seems to be healing quite well, but still has a burning sensation at the top of his thigh and he is looking forward to being rid of that as quickly as possible!

DISHWASHER AND WASHING MACHINES BLUES…

Every time I do a load of dishes in my dishwasher (which is old as the hills), I am so thankful to our daughter-in-law, Jeanie, who turned me on to using a teaspoon of citric acid in the extra tray for the rinse.  It not only leaves the dishes squeaky clean, but it also leaves the dishwasher, SPOTLESS, eliminating the need to EVER scrub the inside of the dishwasher.  Best helpful hint I ever received!!   Our water softener has not been operational for 15 years or more and we use water from our well for all our water needs.  What a blessing!

Wonderful Advice From George Carlin

George Carlin's wife died early in 2008 and George followed her, dying in July 2008. It is ironic George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate. An observation by George Carlin:
