Saturday Service Information

Some important advice about ticks.
TICK WARNING:




Please send this warning to everyone on your e- mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the
Warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up,

DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!!
They only want to see you dance naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday.. I feel so stupid.
Thank you Debby at Just Breathe




Now I read this on Jack's at Shiplog yesterday:


Now it will show you your house on the internet for you.  I thought it was a little hard to use but you know me . . .



Now Myna sent me this from Respite, Prosper

Are you interested when the flag of the U.S. is officially at half staff and why?  Here's the site for you.
 www.dailyflagstatus.com 

Presumably, you're alerted any time the President and/or State officials declare the U.S./State flags be lowered to half staff.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:



I thought this was GREAT - because sitting around being happy or miserable is a choice.

I have the power in me to sit here today and think of one negative thing after another and I bet in a couple hours I would be miserable and make everyone miserable around me (not that it doesn't sound temping at times - lol).
But who does it really hurt?
ME!
So why not use that same energy to think of positive things today?  And then I will feel good - will my mood affect others?  It is a good topic - why do negative moods wear off on people yet positives don't all the time?  I'm off track - doesn't matter.
God gave me today - another chance.  I slept until 9am!  I made myself a good cup of coffee.  We are going to the Avenger movie this afternoon.  I see I have some friends to answer emails too ☺ and friends posts to read ☺ and it's only 10:15AM.
TODAY IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY!
I hope that you have a good day too - let me know something good that has happened already.

SO REMEMBER:




 Love, Chatty

I love up-beat blog entries. yep they change my attitude, make me think,"WHAT AM I FUSING ABOUT?"
I know life is great, but if there is a problem, something in human nature wants us to think on it instead of all the good folk and beauty out there. YOU are part of that, good stuff, that lifts a spirit!
Nice to have met you, THANKS!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Your so right honey. I choose to be Happy today.

Glad you warned me about the tick guy. haha
Love
Maggie

Marti said...

I choose to be happy. I am going to enjoy my coffee on my sun porch, finish reading my book, then shower and get ready to dinner and Bible study with friends. I am so blessed! I hope your weekend is peaceful.

Nancy said...

There are so few things we can control... being content and/or happy is not one of them! :)

Grandma Bonnie said...

Thank you for the inspiration. I am going out with Pooh Bear to a petting Zoo. I bet we have lots of fun and get a few photos.

Jane said...

Choosing to be happy, but there are times when the head wants to go in sand. Thanks for the reminder, oh how life is short. Doing some FUN things this weekend.

Melanie said...

Love the tick joke...too cute.
I slept in 'til 9 this morning too. It was a long hard week, and I guess I just needed the rest.
Yep, we have to CHOOSE to be happy.
Enjoy your weekend!♥

Em Illustrator said...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I can tell you that sitting on a swing makes me really happy. I need to go find a park! Enjoy your weekend and be happy.
Love,
Debby

Wendy @ ECTaS said...

Love that little hamster!

laurie said...

this is sooo true, I sat and felt miserable becasue my blog was wiped out, but I made the decision to fight back, I started a new one, I called it when the bough broke, I hope you will find me,

Retired English Teacher said...

That is true. Life is too short. Don't be miserable!

No one has come to my door about ticks, darn! Maybe they aren't interested in seeing me dance naked.

Paula said...

Always love your uplifting blog. Glad you and hubby are going out to the movie.

Sally said...

Love your attitude. Enjoy the movie. :)

Jill said...

I'm giggling at the tick scam! I hope you enjoy your day, Dear Sandie.

The Boston Lady said...

Sandie this exactly the attitude to have although challenging to pull off sometimes. Yay for sleeping til 9! Hope u liked the Avengers. That movie is very entertaining! Have a great weekend! Ann

That corgi :) said...

Hope you like the movie Sandie; I heard great things about it!! LOL about the ticks and dancing around :)

I totally agree with you Sandie, we can be miserable or we can try to enjoy life the best we can! So glad you got to sleep in until 9 a.m. I bet that felt good!

betty

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...
Yep, it was a pretty good day. Had a delicious coffee drink at Dunkin Donuts, made a delicious breakfast for three guests and my hubs, bought a cute birthday present for a five year old, got a phone call from my son, and ate delicious Polish golumpki that I made. Thanks for the cute post. Susan

Grammy Goodwill said...

I hope you had a great day. I always enjoy reading your "jokes".

BelovedBomber said...

My son already had a tick this season while at 4-H. I was all excited for the info because it is suppose to be a bad year for them. That made it all the funnier! Have a blessed weekend!

Michaele said...

You are my inspiration Chatty.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Such cute stuff today! hugs, Linda

Debbie said...

Is this why you were so worried about me?!?! hehe, we don't want to scare people to death!! Enjoy you Sunday!!!

Arkansas Patti said...

Hay, it may be a scam but they did find a tick on me, right before they ran off shaking their heads. Maybe it was my dancing:))
I have found positive thoughts and attitudes are much easier to carry around and I am a pretty lazy person. You are so smart to chose well.

Angela said...

Hey Sandie! I stayed in bed until 10 this morning! lol It is nice to sleep in. Hope the movie was good!

Hugs,
Angela

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Sandie -

Cute mouse and true words. I worked in my garden today. There's nothing like being among veggies and flowers to put a smile on my face.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Ann said...

So thankful for that warning. I'll be very careful of anyone coming to my door....lol
I unfortunately made the choice today to be grumpy. At least it was later in the day though so I didn't ruin the whole day....lol

Martha said...

Loved this post! I may have to repost that first one, lol!

Jim said...

Nice advice and humor tonight, Sandie. I'll be sure to watch out for the tick inspectors! I'm still smiling. :) LOL
..

Jim said...

BTW, I wondered earlier why you weren't posting tonight. Now I know, you overslept.

Ginny said...

I'm glad you went to the movie today...I'm thinking this is the kind GS will love, hope you had a great time and a brief vacation from reality.

Rob-bear said...

Interesting information. Not terribly useful for this Bear, but I'm sure of benefit to some Humans.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

Sweet Tea said...

Naked Tick Dancing! LOL!!
Thanks for the smile!!

Red Rose Alley said...

The one sweet thing that I noticed today is that I have all my senses...I can see, hear, touch, smell, and taste. What more can I ask for? I loved your 'positive' post today, Sandie. And have I told you how much I love your Header? The girls and me have been wanting to change our Header too. We are just waiting for the perfect picture...maybe someday.
~Sheri at Red Rose Alley

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I was on alert when I read your first words- because last year- I did get a tick stuck in me!

Maple Lane said...

Very cute post. I am enjoying the cool mornings and a walk around the yard to see what new is blooming. Wishing you and your family a blessed Sunday.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

It's Sunday morning and I am just catching up on Saturday posts. I love the saying...yes, life is too short. I'd rather be happy so that is my choice. There is always something good in every day! Hope your Sunday is a wonderful one!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Please add to that warning that some demand payment of $25 for an inspection fee, and that your spouse hollering in background, "MAKE IT RAIN!" does not help.

Sarah (Nikki) said...

I love the first naked dance one...and that little mouse....tooo cute. Sending you a stream of hugs. Hope Rick is doing way better

Anna Smith said...

Everyday is a good day if you woke up breathing :)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Each day that I wake up and can get up and walk and eat and breathe well is a happy, good day!! Hope your weekend is a good one!

SweetMarie said...

This is some great advice! We are having a nice weekend. We're having great weather here. We cooked out on the grill Saturday and will probably do it again Sunday. :) Hope you and your family enjoyed the movie. :)
Love,
Marie

Sandra said...

a good thing happened just now. i got a big silly grin on my face looking at the mouse in the swing. love it. myother good thing is i talked to both my sons today

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

You are so very right, Sandie!! Hope the Avengers was good! Seems like it would be! blessings ~ Tanna

SquirrelQueen said...

The street thing is kind of fun, it's similar to the view on Google Earth.

I'm not real good at sitting still for very long to begin with but sitting around thinking about negative things would be way too depressing. Positive energy is always best.

TARYTERRE said...

I'm still laughing about the TICK scam. Funny, indeed.
