Me four, but do wish he would not act like a buffoon, at times. Otherwise I think he is mostly doing a great job.

Pop Pop, carry on.
The "obligation" you speak of does, in fact, exist but only in the minds and hearts of God's own people.

All religion and vocalization aside, it's those who actually LIVE the life, that WALK the walk that actually carry the torch, carry the love of God to others.
Those who sit in pews and cast their dollars into the offering plates, and nothing else, only dwell on the surface of life.
It's those who give of themselves and their time, and their energies to other people in need that fulfill the ultimate goal.

Keep on keeping on.
There will be Peace in the Valley, some day.

That is all.

Everything Else / Family Obligation
« Last post by pop pop on June 26, 2018, 05:42:55 AM »
My sister-in-law arrived last evening, and is almost unable to walk. She using a cane as a right leg. They took her off all her meds for pain relief, and she is barely able to walk. Her hip has collapsed. She is in a bad shape so we are obligated to help her.

I waited up to carry her bags in so sweetie would not be forced to do it. In this case, one can say this is truly a labor of love. She has been divorced for 30 years, 74, and gone through life never preparing for her station she has arrived at in life. Has two children and a grown granddaughter, and none of them will take care of her so my wife, being the youngest of 9 children, feels obligated to step up and see her sister through this time in her life. She is really in a sad situation so we will help her as best as we can.


Is there such a thing as "relative in law obligation?" I believe so, but it might be a little painful at times. You know what I mean? My sweetie says I am the man for the job! That really helps, her confidence in me.....I/we WANT too, and should. Hope someone does it for me some day when I will be in need.

My wife took care of both her parents until they went to the next realm. We moved our family form KY to TN, many years ago, for her to accomplish this. It was the best thing I could have done. It was hard on her, but she feels great joy knowing she brought much comfort, to both her parents, in their last days. Her dad actually passed in our home. We built a mother's-in-law quarters in our home, then converted to my man cave after we did not need it any longer.

I guess that is why swettie chose a "later in life" career as an RN. After mommy-hood (4 daughters) she went back to college and became an RN and worked for 25 years then retired. Retirement check is nice, and also nice to have one's very own nurse. Has great benefits guys...

The Lord tells us to take care of our own. That is what she/we are doing! "That Book" tells one, "It brings great reward, Steve.

We are in deed privileged to have an opportunity to do something good! Just like letting the lady use your back yard, Steve. It is an honor to do these kind of things for the less fortunate.

Sister in law's hip replacement surgery is set for July 2nd. She has several Dr visits and other things to do in preparation for this date come next Monday. She is very hearing impaired so my sweetie must accompany her, to these visits, and be her health care advocate.

Grandson played 3 games and lost all of them. Had a wonderful time with the family, but travel back home was terrible. Hit 2 major traffic jams around Atlanta and 1 outside of Chattanooga. Don't believe the guy made it in the last one. Guard rail demolished the driver side cockpit of his overturned truck. Trip took an additional 2 hrs to complete.


Grandson was elated to see us there. Sometimes one just needs to go the extra mile to have fun with the grandkids. His sister allowed me 3 hugs and a love pinch. "Great Time!"

Sister in law comes today and will go for DR visit tomorrow to have hip replacement. Wednesday she will go for pre-admission testing and her hip replacement school. I had to do that for my knee replacement also. Took about 4 and 1/2 hours to complete. She is hard of hearing and refuses a hearing aid so sweetie needs to be there with her. Next  Monday will be the surgery date. She will allow my sweetie to take care of her through out her surgery and physical therapy, so most probably we will be tied her for the next couple of months. Will be a labor of love ordeal for my sweetie.


Next trip will be a drive around the northeast, which we have never been in that area. Will make a big circle all throughout the northeastern states. Will last over a 5 weeks during September and October. Sweetie wants to eat lobster in Maine.


Thanks for the well wishes. 

"Ain't it great to be living in the U S A!" Thank you Lord!

Will not be able to take any firepower because some of the northern states does not honor my carry permit and even Jearsy will not allow hollow point ammo. Go figure!

Way cool!Trump is the very definition of a Populist President, in the best sense possible.While he can sometimes be an awful clown, his general, long-term behavior is a whiff of fresh air.

I'll happily re-elect him.

Personally I feel the reason she didnít is no concern to anyone but her! I donít need to know why she chose to carry it, and donít think anyone else has the right to demand to know! But this is just my opinion
