Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6. Dec 11 2019 1:45am

Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

Look For The Good

Janice Hudspeth,  May 2000


Isn't it interesting to note
That what we are looking for
Is usually what we find,
And very little more?

It is all too easy to find the faults
In everyday situations,
And then they seem to magnify
In our imaginations.

Can we not look for good instead
And focus on the best?
It certainly makes for a better day
And gives our minds a rest.

When we live with aggravations
And let them rule each thought,
It is then we lose perspective
And progress comes to naught.

So what if brother so-and-so
Or sister tell-it-all
Intrudes our day with useless junk
And dumps on us their gall?

It may sound too simplistic
To always look for good.
Yet what is there for us to lose,
Besides our own bad mood?
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24
