Sorry it’s not a better picture – use your imagination ūüôā

Shared at the right is one of my absolute favorite scenes.¬†¬†¬† This scene is in Kentucky, just before going over the bridge into Cincinnati, Ohio.¬† You come down a steep grade for the last two miles and go around a curve to be¬†met by this site.¬† It always makes me catch my breath, and it always reminds me of the “city on a hill” or heaven.¬† I’ve seen this site more times than I care to say, starting when I was about 8, but it still gets me.¬† When we moved to the Cincy area a few years ago, it was like coming home for me because that sight and that bridge (over the Ohio River) have been a constant in my life and something I always loved and looked forward to (going South or North).

Recently, I was cogitating randomly, and I thought it sure would be nice if I had a straight road that went from my house to my gks¬†house (maybe over top of other roads… so no traffic. . . .¬†¬†¬† God whispered to me, “Boy, you’re never satisfied are you?”¬†¬† He reminded me that he moved me 2 hours closer before I even had grandchildren.¬† AND–I 71 is 3 miles from my house and 8 miles from the gks¬†home.¬† So, I do have a road (fairly straight) from here to there.¬† I get almost entirely highway all the way!¬†¬† How ungrateful of me.¬† Father forgive me for always wanting more.¬† (See last post:¬† But I need you!)

In trying to be creative, I decided to put the word random in the thesaurus to see if I could come up with a less-used word.  Then I put in thoughts (because ramblings lead to something else entirely).   How do you like these:

Haphazard Happenings

Aimless Intuitions

Designless Deliberations

Indiscriminate Musings

Hit-or-miss Rationalizations

Driftless Discernings

Irregular Inferences

Slapdash Speculations

Promiscuous Perceivings

Hmmmmmmmm.   Do you have a favorite?

Isn’t it funny how we don’t like people who are like us?¬† Seeing ourselves in others (whether we recognize it or not) is not fun.¬† The Daughter and the Husband do NOT get along well.¬† Why?¬† 2 peas in a pod.¬†¬† We have a friend who is quite¬†the talker when she gets going.¬† My Mother-in-law is also quite¬†the talker.¬† Now-a-days her conversations are repeated¬†over and over, but the talking continues even without the memory.¬† Anyway, last week we were out to dinner with the friend who had not seen us for a while and had a lot to say.¬† Ginny was sitting at the far end of the table.¬†¬† With her 2 yo mind, she turns to my daughter and says in her best 2 yo, loud voice.¬† “What in the world is she yammering¬†about down there?”¬†¬† YIKES!¬†¬† Not to worry, the talker didn’t even skip a beat, even when my daughter then¬† told her Grandma, “She’s yammering about her job.”¬†¬† Ain’t life fun?

I hope you all have those promiscuous random moments to enjoy in your own life. ūüėĬ†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Oops, I think this one got published first!¬† Ah well,¬† ……
