  • ‘Don’t eat off the floor’ turns into ‘thanks for cleaning up’.
  • You warn a grown man that his coffee is hot when you hand it to him.
  • You have to smell a pair of socks to see if they’re clean.
  • You start getting everyone ready to go an hour before you have to leave in hopes of getting out the door on time.
  • You threaten that whoever pees on the toilet seat next cleans the whole bathroom every day for a week.
  • Sleeping in feels like winning the lottery.
  • You have to microwave your coffee 5 times before enjoying the full cup.
  • Wearing leggings and an over sized shirt counts as dressing up.
  • You haven’t had time to clean your house windows in 11 years.
  • You double knot your own shoes, too.

Happy 137th Birthday Helen Keller

Waldina

Today is the 137th birthday of the activist and role model Helen Keller. We seemed to learn a lot about her when we were kids and then her lessons seem to fall out of style as we grow older. The truth is, her lessons are important for all ages, but most important for adults as we are the ones that can put those concepts into action. I have included some quotes of hers below that resonate with me, I suggest you do some investigating and find some that do the same for you. The world is a better place because she was in it and still feels the loss that she has left.

OCCUPATION: Educator, Journalist
BIRTH DATE: June 27, 1880
DEATH DATE: June 1, 1968

“The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.”
“But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.”

So – you know how it goes.
You’re bored.
At a loose end.
Facebook has the looney left, the rabid right and the cautious centre all abusing each other for the debacle which has become British government – or lack of it.
What’s a chap to do?
I know, how about that old table up the corner, the one we inherited when we cleared Dad’s house?
Is it worth anything?
What’s it’s story?

I’ll Google it out of idle curiosity.
But what do I call it?
Well, it has a marquetry picture of Muckcross Abbey on the top and it’s a gaming table.
That’ll do for starters.
Tongue stuck between teeth I type, ‘m-u-c-k-c-r-o-s-s_a-b-b-e-y_g-a-m-e-s_t-a-b-l-e_enter’
Got a few results, so stick tongue back to where it should be.

And it’s in – wait for it –…
