Random Ramblings


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,¬† ……

Cee’s life questions answered


Cee’s life questions answered by Angela Masters Young

No, I didn’t mean I answered all of Cee’s questions about life.¬† I mean that I wanted to answer her challenge this week.

  • How old would you be if you didn‚Äôt know how old you are?

For a long time I remained about 16 inside, but I think I would claim about 30 at this point.  Did you know that your spirit/soul do not grow old like the body that contains them?  Sure you do!

  • What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?

Wow, so many for I have been blessed¬†indeed!¬† I do have to say, however, that the kindest thing anyone has ever done for me is when Jesus Christ went to the cross to pay for my sins and provide¬†a way for me to get to God.¬† That wins by far.¬†¬†¬† As far as non-diety people, I’d have to give credit to my 5th grade teacher (for 1/2 a year only).¬† She saw the shy little girl and went out of her way to love her.¬† She was instrumental in one of the first major changes in my life.¬† Thank you God for good teachers!!

  • What was your favorite childhood television program?

I’m not sure if I had a favorite, and my memory is sketchy at best.¬† However, I did watch Batman and Robin a lot (brother lol).¬† We also used to watch the show with Farfel the dog.¬† I can’t remember the name now, but I got a stuffed farfel¬†for Christmas when I was in 1st or 2nd grade.¬† As a teen I liked anything that WASN’T a cowboy show (my dad’s fav) and Dark Shadows, the Variety Shows of the time.

  • Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?

This one is easy:¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† MY HUSBAND!¬† Yes, he does all (most) of the cooking now-a-days. ūüôā¬† After a recent dinner with my middle child and my family talking about all the fires I set in the kitchen… I think that was a pretty wise decision ūüôā¬† I can cook, but I’m dangerous around hot things (watch out Brian!)

Jesus Christ!

I am going to share a picture that popped up in my media gallery.¬† This is the (in)famous “Touchdown Jesus” statue that was burnt¬†down (struck by lightning) but is being rebuilt.¬† People come from all over to stand by it and make the OHIO¬†sign.¬†¬† Jesus is doing the H if you didn’t get that.¬† I never did that and thought the statue was hideous¬†(disproportionate…) and a bit¬†um, not sure what to call it. ¬† However, it is very close to where I live, so I’m sharing it as part of the ‘about me’ theme today.¬† My husband works very close to it and we life just a few miles away.¬† Hmmmm

I hope you enjoyed this little foray into my world.  If you participated, leave a link here for me (and others to read).  If you just want to share the answers to these questions, do so in a comment.  Thanks for dropping by!  Have a good one!
