Our New Year is finally here - for most of us it is a welcome time of joy - for me the past year was full of stress, that is going to stop - so much going on in the world full of hate and dissatisfaction among each other -
time to re-adjust our thoughts, even turning to faith for guidance and pull this country together again -
how 'bout it?...Established 2009

Manners! Where Have You Gone???
I don’t know, I guess I
am on a roll for whining!
My friend and I were
walking to the parking lot
when we saw a painter
coming towards us -
we moved over onto the
grass and he passed us.
When he passed by I
then said “Your Welcome”
and he turned and said,
“Aaaaa, Ohhhhh” and
continued his walk to
one of the apartments.
Well, this seems to be America today as I see it.
I have noticed there is
no communication between
people let alone a
mannerly jester between anyone.
How hard is it to say
“Thank You” to a stranger?
How hard is it to say
“Your Welcome” if indeed
someone does take the
time to voice a mannerly
comment to you? I don’t
know, I guess it’s difficult.
I truly believe we all
must teach each other manners
again in our new world.
Oh, I know the words are in there,
just hard to form our
lips in a mannerly way, it seems! I
do believe it all
starts at home - re-learning to each other
as we realize this country
is deteriorating in many ways.
And, this saddens me
for sure as I just don’t get it. I do
believe in voicing a
sincere ‘Thank You’ if at all possible.
I have made it a point
to say “Thank you” to the cashier
at the grocery store
and also mentioning the great service I have received. If
there is no response I then say “Your Welcome”
and the clerk whose mind is somewhere else
comes alive. Sure
enough they will say “Oh, sorry” or something
to that effect and
we both smile at our conversation - I then
walk away happy!
Living in a Senior
Community I find many old people
have lost their
manners. All they want is to be served
and catered to. Well, I
am not walking down that road! I
also believe very
strongly that if one can ‘hold their hand out
to accept something
from another, then they surly could move
their lips to say Thank
You'. Now really, how hard is that?
World War II Baby says - not that hard at all!
