**I drove to Orrville yesterday to get some prescription medications from Rite Aid and to

Buehler's grocery store food and other things we needed. 

I then went to Wooster, failing to stop at the military cemetery in Rittman. I just forget

which isn't a good enough excuse to my way of thinking, but I hope I can visit the final

resting place of our dead heroes in the next few days.

Like I told you yesterday I'm getting to the point that I'm running out of things to do in 

the flower beds and the yard except for pulling weeds and other routine things, so I went

to Lowes to purchase some more discounted plants. I bought, I'd say, about 20 discounted

plants, all but 1 a perennial and when got to the cashier she seemed a little distraught at

first. I was talking to several other people just close to us at the same time helping with 

placing the plants on the cashier's desk and the cashier still seemed aggravated. All at once

she burst out laughing. Almost like a belly laugh saying "I'm too old for his" and she 

couldn't stop laughing. After paying and turning around to go I saw that everyone, I 

believe, was a laughing or smiling. 

And, as I've always said, "all my friends are strangers."

**Today I need to do some catching up because of the lengthy time I spent on my 

Memorial Day post yesterday.

I need to publish a postcrossing story because I have 4 to send and have 2 yet that I've 

received. I need to do these 6 in the next 6 days as well as uploading the face (front) of the 


I probably have 10 videos waiting for me to process and edit and then publishing so that

you can view it. I do now have a subscribe button on my videos and if you subscribe you

will be notified somehow when I publish the next video.

I have attempted to place a subscribe button on, but it says I need to upload

a square button, 100 kb or less. I'll do it eventually.

I don't know if I have to drive anywhere today, so may have time to plant the about 20 

plants I bought yesterday. The weather calls for a high temperature of 74° and partly 

cloudy skies, so I should have good weather with no shirt, no socks, no shoes, just shorts 

and my Army hat to plant those plants in the ground.


**When Mother was in Hospice there was at that time an organization/foundation to help 

people who were grieving because of someone's serious illness, death or other things that 

may cause a person to mourn.

I mentioned in a earlier post to please donate to the Sadie Rose Foundation.


"All our support and services are offered free of charge.

I knew Regina Cyzick Harlow while I was in Virginia helping to take care of Mother and she

helped us through our sorrow on numerous occasions of our knowing we were loosing 

Mother. She usually had her sidekick with her whose name I can't remember, but she 

teaches at Spotswood High School, I believe, located about 10 miles more or less east of

Harrisonburg on U. S. Route 33. 

They visited us when Mother was in the hospital, in the house when Mother was in her 

hospital bed along with other people, strangers to me now, who sang uplifting songs of 

encouragement and not sorrow. They also, or Regina alone, came to the house on many

occasions to encourage us with our grief. 

I also got to know Regina's Mother and aunt who ran a sewing shop where I had American

flag patches sewn on my T-shirts, shorts and long pants. It was located about a 1/2 mile

up the road after rounding a curve to the left if you were coming from Dayton, where we 

once had a house on the same Ottobine Road, but on the other side of the road.

Do you remember me in an earlier post (story) saying this preacher woman had invited me

to the confessions of her life and tears rolled down my face because she said something I 

didn't think she'd say?

I'd forgotten her name, but after Googling Sadie Rose, that preacher woman I talked 

about was then, Preacher woman Regina Cyzick Harlow.

overblown? Fox News - ‎1 hour ago‎.

"In a matter of mere days, Jared Kushner has become the media's biggest target—that is, 

right after his father-in-law. The White House official who virtually never talks to 

journalists on the record—which leaves them annoyed—is suddenly the most" (talked


**Like I told you before, owners of the news agencies encourage their journalists and 

reporters to dramatize the news in order to draw people to their news reporting and thus 

making a higher profit. 

It is no wonder that President Trump so enjoyed leaving the country for a while. But he 

came back to the onslaught of the pestering reporters, cameramen and other pain in the 

a#& news people. He is the President, you know and he loves his country and wants to

"Make America Great Again."

Manchester attack shows. Reuters - 24 minutes ago.

Update: 10:34 AM 5/30/2017 EDT. UK PM May's lead narrows slightly to 12 points: 

ICM poll. Reuters - 2 minutes ago.

I do hope that Prime Minister Teresa May is elected. If another great war would break out,

God forbid, she may become the next Winston Churchill. 

50 still in hospital, 17 in critical care after Manchester attack. Reuters - 6 minutes ago.

**I like Prime Minster Teresa May just like I liked Margaret Hilda Thatcher, who served as 

Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990. She was born October 13, 1925, 

on April 8, 2013 (my Mother lived until the first day of spring, 2015).

President Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th U. S. President, served at about the same time, 

1981 to 1989 who was born on February 6, 1911 (7 years before both Mother and Father

were born) and died on June 5, 2004.

Both Prime Minister Thatcher and President Reagan got along quite well and though Prime 

Minister May and President Trump might may have gotten off to a rocky start, I believe

they will become fairly good friends eventually.

Prime Minster Narendra Damodardas Modi's meeting with Prime Minster Angelka Merkel

was much like her meeting with President Trump. I believe the Washington Post, a liberal

newspaper is stirring things up to attract readers to their newspaper, online news or TV.

I believe that Prime Minister Merkel's remark that President Trump would reshape the 

world and America was more a positive statement than a negative one.
