334th post

Note: I told you I took Bill to Dr. Kwok yesterday. What I didn't tell you was that

I'm the only one able to drive in the house. My son, Ryan, cannot drive because 

of his disability, Carolyn can't drive because she fears of another accident (2nd

accident in 4 years in which the cars were totaled), and Bill lost his license 

because of his recent accident. He will have to take the driver's test again before

he can get his license back.

I told you the other day that I take good care of Mother's Honda. I call the 1986

car Mother's car because I have not paid it off yet. I owe Mother's estate $800

which I will pay off eventually. Mother, while she was alive and not in Heaven,

along with my sister, Nancy, wanted me to have the Honda for free for helping 

take care of Mother. I do not believe that you should get paid for what you 

should be doing anyway. Mother took care of me when I was a kid so I believe

I should take care of her when she needed me.

I do take good care of Mother's 1986 Honda Accord just like I said in the first 


I remember that one of my favorite nieces said she would not leave the area

with the Honda because the car shimmed and had other problems when driven. 

I remember taking the Honda one day to C.C.Rosen and Sons just about 3 miles 

south of Mt. Crawford on U.S. Route 11. The car either needed an alignment or 

the tires needed balancing. I can't remember exactly. After checking those 

things that I just mentioned they said a part up front needed replacing. I always 

say DO IT. I've always trusted this company because my Father was and two of my 

cousins, Leroy and Lewis Cline, are customers of theirs.

Well folks, it looks like I won't be able to tell the STORIES OF MY LIFE AND 

TOLD IN ONE DAY.... Sorry.

*A Florida company has secured backing for flights to the moon. The company

plans to mine the moon's helium.

*The present Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, says  ISIS leader Abu Bakr 

al-Baghdadi' s "days are numbered." He said the U.S. does not know where he's

*Some people are plagued with worry because of someone who is close to 

them that are ill or has had a accident. Why worry. I always say "it's up to God" 

and I don't worry.

*I'm the oldest one in the house and I'm the most healthy one in the house.  I move 

pretty much constantly and they don't.

*I have an consultation appointment with Dr. Jabour who does bowel exams on 

January 18, 2017 at 11:20 AM. I have a book of paper work to complete. The 

receptionist said that I could not fill out the forms online. I looks like to me 

that Dr. Jabour and his office is 20 years behind in keeping up with technology.

*I believe that I'm still not drinking enough lemon water to equal the amount 

of coffee I drink. That reminds me. I need to make another pot of coffee.

*In the American professional football playoffs the New England Patriots will 

play the Houston Texans in Foxboro, Massachusetts at 8:15 PM today. The 

Patriots are a 2 touchdown favorite beating the Texans earlier this year 27-0.

The temperature at kickoff is predicted to be 8°.

My prediction: Patriots 35, Texans 13.

I go to bed at kickoff, but will see the score tomorrow morning on my computer.

There ain't nothing that will keep me from going to bed at my regular time.

*In the first playoff game of the day at 4:35 PM, the Seattle Seahawks will play

the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The Falcons are a 1 

touchdown favorite and this game should be in the second quarter when I post 

this story of today.

My prediction:  Seahawks 31, Falcons 28. 

You know I'm too rebellious to go with the Las Vegas point spreads.

*(6:07 AM 1/14/2017 EDT). I'm going to have an Orleans sardine sandwich and 

then I'll go out and get the weather gauge and bring it in to the house.

*Just finished my sandwich so I went outside (6:45 AM 1/14/2017 EDT) to get the 

weather gauge. The temperature 28°, the humidity is 72% and the wind upon my

back indicates a wind speed of about 5 mph and thus a wind chill of about 25°.

*I remember what was said but not the source that New England (the 

northeastern part of the U.S.) will experience more warmth this winter because 

of Global Warming. Since I live in the eastern part of the mid-west, I will not 

enjoy the warmer weather that the northeast will enjoy. Don't seem fair to me.

*(8:02 AM 1/14/2017 EDT). The weather gauge I brought in from the outside 

displays a temperature of 68°, the humidity is 48% and there's no wind except

me breathing or farting. I'll take the weather gauge outside and check it in an 

hour or so. 

*The weather service is predicting an ice storm in the mid-west which has caused

the delay in the Steelers and Chief's football playoff game in Kansas City.

*(9:19 AM 1/14/2017 EDT). Went outside to take two letters to the mailbox across

Smucker Road. It's Saturday so I don't usually have to wait for a car going east 

or west. The temperature only gauge displays a 31°, the wind is blowing in from

the east and slightly north and no sun to speak of at this time of the morning.
