MY STAY AT THE SENTARA ROCKINGHAM MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

I'm going to tell this story while mentioning no names to protect the innocent.

I might deviate from the truth occasionally, not by my choice, but because my 

memory of it might not exactly recall the facts. It was a time most recently (2015)

when us kids were were taking turns helping to take care of Mother who was

in hospice and was still in her house. 

I had to go to the Harrisonburg Walmart (near James Madison University) for a 

reason that I've forgotten. It was snowing, but this part of Virginia in the 

Shenandoah Valley does not normally receive a lot of snow at one time and I 

wasn't worried about getting back to Mother's house. 

I must have stayed longer in Walmart than I thought because when I came out

the parking lot, sidewalks and everything else was covered with at least 12 inches

or more of snow. The snow storm came so fast and so hard the city snow plows 

had no way of even beginning to catch up with clearing the streets. No vehicles

were moving at all. 

Well, I had to make a decision knowing that I could not make it back to Mother's

house. And I'll tell you about the decision that I made that day when tomorrow

comes....

TO BE CONTINUED....

WORLD

*Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee highly criticized President Obama 

for abstaining on a vote in the Security Counsel of the United Nations that 

condemned Israel for settlements in West Bank and East Jerusalem. He went on 

to say that that it was "An insult to Israel."

President-elect Trump said that things will be much different (concerning 

Israel) when he takes office.

A representative of Israel President Netanyahu's office says they will not agree

with the Security Counsel's vote.

HEALTH

*I had just ate (8:17 AM 12/24/2016 EDT) a piece of cheese from the refrigerator

upstairs. That's certainly a no, no for me. Whatever they put in the cheese to hold

it together interferes with my prostrate and I have to stand longer to pee. I should 

know better by now, but sometimes my will power is a little weak. Maybe next time 

I'll just smell the cheese and that will do it because I do have a very good sense of 

smell. Everyone in the house gets me to smell under their armpit and/or under the

armpit of their shirts, jackets, blouses, etc. to see if either one or both need 

washing.

*Everyone in the house was gone yesterday so I just sat and watched TV. And 

almost never do that. At the latter part of the day, I started to feel weaker and 

weaker. And I know the reason. Look at the quote above. I posted my 203rd 

post on the 7th of  September 16 at 2108 hours and that was my same quote that

I just used today. I was not moving around enough yesterday so I lost the energy

that I previously had.


MY OPINION

I know I keep harping about standing and not sitting all the time. I believe that

God intended for us to stand and move around. My Mother in her last few years

of life chose to sit and read, not walking each day as she once did, in her last 

few years of her life and developed congestive heart failure. 

I believe that if God wanted us not stand, we would would now be on all fours,

walking like the four-footed creatures we now have here on earth.

I don't know if I've said enough to get you to change your mind about sitting too

much and to start standing more. But at least, I tried.

WEATHER

Weather for Smithville, Ohio

Today       SCATTERED_SHOWERS   39° 29°

Sun           CLOUDY                                35° 33°

Mon          RAIN                                       56° 35°

From above it looks like I may be able to walk around for a while on Monday.

With temperatures slightly above freezing until then, all of the ice on the 

ground and driveway should be melted by then.

Went outside (8:13 AM 12/24/2016 EDT) to look around and check the weather 

gauge. The temperature is 39°, the humidity is 79%, it's misting rain, the is 

resting at about 2 mph and there's still ice upon the ground and driveway.

Using the online calculators at:

http://www.dpcalc.org and http://www.onlineconversion.com., I get a wind chill 

of 38.66° and a dew point of 33%. 

My first sandwich of the day (9:03 AM 12/24/2016 EDT) was wildcaught King 

Oscar and to my surprise, after taking the wrapper off of the can, there was 

several coupons giving me 60 cents off of future purchases of one of favorite 

sardines. But I have only 2 slices of whole wheat bread left, so I'll have to go to 

Dollar General today to buy for $1.50 a loaf, at least 2 loaves.

Went outdoors (9:36 AM 12/24/2016 EDT) again to take out the trash. The 

weather is much the same as above except for the wind that has regained its

energy and is now blowing from the west and slightly from the north at 

about 8 mph.

I got back from going to General Dollar, Rite Aid and Restoration Thrift about

two hours ago. At General Dollar, I bought 2 loaves of whole wheat bread, 2 

cans of smoked oysters, 2 cans of strawberries and a can of Mexican black 

beans. At Rite Aid I picked up a prescription medication, some Orleans 

sardines, some fruit in glass jars for a $1 each and a bottle of Tylenol for the

house. At Restoration Thrift, I found and purchased some used fitted sheets,

top sheets and pillow cases that I was looking for. I figured I saved at least

$20 for buying them used.
