To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

My wonderful 10x16 screened-in front porch, which I had built a year ago, has GOLD dust on it ... ah-CHOO! Oops. Wrong. It's only pollen. I'm not making it to worship tonight. I've been alternating half a bendryl and a generic claritin at night, so that I don't choke or drown in my sleep. Just getting up the last few mornings has been rough. At work, I don't go outside except getting off and on the bus. I went through sinus mess last January and February to the point of finally having to go to the doctor and missing a whole week of work. I love the flowers and trees - God made them so beautiful! - but it will be nice when the pollen dies down. Someone suggested - obviously without thinking - that I sweep the pollen off my porch. Huh? That would stir it up even more! And to slosh the porch with water would probably just make mud! Maybe in a couple of weeks, I can once again sit on my porch swing.

AGREED! It's bad up here too. I take loraditine everyday. Sometimes I work in our warehouse, which is even worse - pollen AND dust!
