   Magdalene  Oh WW, my heart just aches for these little angels! And over on my July chemo sisters list, we've had two young ladies in the hospital over the weekend, dealing with infections and low blood counts as a result of treatment. Breaks my heart.

   Ole buzzard  The best photos of steam locomotives operating are made in cold weather, when both the smoke and the steam exhaust make the billowing clouds.

   Balogreene  Our first Maltese loved to be dressed up, the greyhounds loved some beaded necklaces a friend made, and their fancy collars. They would all walk around showing off. Our second Maltese only liked it when it was super cold. Our Shih Tzu also hates it, and she has enough hair, she doesn't get cold. But it is so "cute".

   Wrightwinger posted on Nostalgia  I was talking to my Grandkids this evening about the old house where my grandparents lived. It was in the center of town, but they lived about the same as they did in the early years of the last century. There was a summer kitchen and a laundry room on one end of the old house. The laundry room was where she did laundry with an old wringer washer. Outside the door was a hand pump where she got the water for the machine. There were clothes lines stretching several directions where she hung her clothes. Below the house was a chicken house and yard, which was picked pretty clean most ov the time. We dug some great worms from there to fish with as a kid. Beside the chicken lot was a greenhouse dug into the ground with glass panes for a roof. My grandfather sold plants in the spring. Beside that was one garden area. He tended that even after he went blind, until he reached down and put his hand on a snake. Dad stretched strings for him to plant along. There wasn't much money and when the kitchen roof started to leak over the stove, they had no money for a new roof, and it solved the problem when my dad hung some gutter along where it leaked, and drained it into the kitchen sink. They did have an old bathroom with city water, and had the kitchen plumbed as well. I remember chickens sailing across the picket fence into the street, and one of the older men in town would catch it and put it back in the lot. They had a chamber pot upstairs for night time emergencies as it was a long way down the stairs and through the house to get to the bathroom. There was also a privy out back that was no longer in use. There were certain days for certain jobs. Laundry was an all day event. There was a daily trip to the chicken house to gather eggs, and scatter some chop for the birds. The yard was full of old, tart cherry trees. It was a neat place to grow up and visit. We were there almost every day as my dad was a barber in a part of my grandfathers garage, where he once worked on cars. My dad had divided it in half and used half for a pool room, in the rear, and a barber shop in the front. From there he could help his parents as they aged.

   StormCnter  WrightWinger, your grandparents' house sounds very much like my Louisiana grandparents' house. Big, high-ceilinged rooms with a fireplace in several of them, one downstairs bathroom and chamberpots (we called them slopjars ) upstairs under the beds. On the screened back porch, there were pecans to crack and shell. Any visiting grandchild was assigned that duty. In the back of the house was a huge fig tree. We all loved the figs fresh from the tree, but my grandmother insisted on making fig preserves. My grandmother was a lovely, caring woman who always had many projects going at once. Unfortunately, the figs simmering on the stove might not be a priority. I was grown before I realized fig preserves aren't supposed to taste scorched. The only time my grandmother ever was angry with me was when my cousin and I (five year olds ) drowned one of the chickens just to see what might happen if we held it under water. My grandfather was a farmer and a rural mail carrier. Whereever he went, he did as much walking as possible, keeping watch for Indian relics. By the time of his death, he had hundreds of arrowheads, axes, the little fish spears, small pots. The collection was divided up among his six grandsons. Unfortunately, we granddaughters were passed over with that particular inheritance.
My Texas ranching grandparent lived a very different life in a very different world. Another tale for another day.

   Balogreene  Several years ago, we went to my mom's favorite uncle's funeral. It was interesting, they were all surprised we made the trip from Northern VA to western Michigan, but, mom and Uncle Don loved each other so. Anyhow, I told mom, as long as we were in town we had to go visit her parent's aunt's and uncle's and grandparent's graves. They had a plot, my great-grandmother had bought 6 places and paid something like $150 for perpetual care.
I asked my mom, after we were in Michigan, if she remembered the name of the cemetery, so I could locate it on GPS. She said no, but if I could get to this address, she could get to the cemetery. There were two on that street, and family were buried in both. I found the house, and she told me it was her maternal grandparent's home.
I had heard stories like Mr. WW's about the house. It was definitely not that. I remembered sort of, being there as a six-year old, a wood-burning stove in the kitchen, smells of good food, a round dining-room table that could be expanded to hold 20. Now, it was dilapidated, needing paint, and looking like a slum.
But, mom got me to the cemetery, and then we found the graves. And mom turned around and said the third house on the left, that belonged to the other grandparents. That is how my grandparents met, they lived 5 blocks apart.

   Gerty  Mr.Wright--is there something I am misinterpreting in this chart?

For example: The question is "What is your state the WORST at? If Alaska is the worst at suicide, that means there are fewer cases of people offing themselves there. Yes?

It doesn't work the same for all states. Oh, my...I'm so con-foooosed!

   Wrightwinger  I think the idea is that these are bad things that are present in remarkable numbers in each state. I have no idea about the validity or the veracity of the information, and certainly don't think it means that some of these are in epic numbers. In WV we do tend toward heart disease and diet related problems as the number of family farms and gardens decline, and the food that is less expensive tends to be food that is also used to fatten cows.
