I AM ATTENDING THE SHENANIGANS!!!!!!!

GARY & I HAVE BEEN RENTING A STORAGE UNIT HERE IN BRANSON FOR OVER 5 YEARS NOW– & OUR GOAL HAS BEEN TO GET IT CLEANED OUT– & NOT ANY LONGER PAY THAT RENT– SO GARY HAS BEEN BRINGING PLASTIC TUBS THAT I HAD STORED IN THE STORAGE UNIT –UP TO THE HOUSE FOR ME TO SORT THROUGH– WELL— I PUBLISHED & WAS THE EDITOR OF A SMALL TOWN NEWSPAPER FOR A FEW YEARS– & I ALSO DID A NEWSLETTER FOR EVERY ONE OF MY BUSINESSES I OWNED OVER THE YEARS– & YES –I KEPT A COPY OF EVERY PUBLICATION–& EVENT THAT I FUNDED OR DREAMED UP & SPONSORED — I STARTED SORTING– & READING— I HAVE SPENT THE WHOLE MORNING READING THOSE PUBLICATIONS– & STORIES– & NOT THROWING AWAY ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!! I’M HOPELESS!!!!!!    🙂

I HAVE TUBS OF CARDS– LETTERS– & KEEPSAKES— & I’M NOT READY TO GET RID OF THEM YET– I GUESS— WHEN WE HAD OUR AUCTIONS & SIZED WAY WAY WAY WAY DOWN– WHEN WE RETIRED– I GOT RID OF TOOOOOOOOOOO MANY THINGS I WISH I HAD KEPT– BUT THEY ARE GONE NOW—

I COULD SCAN MOST ALL THE THINGS IN THE PLASTIC TUBS– & PUT ON MY COMPUTER– BUT THERE IS SOMETHING TO SAY FOR HOLDING IT IN YOUR HANDS & READING IT!!!  TOOOO MANY KEEPSAKES!!!!

GARY WAS ADOPTED & FOR YEARS WE SEARCHED FOR HIS BIRTH FAMILY– I HAVE YEARS OF LETTERS &  CORRESPONDENTS WITH ALL THOSE PEOPLE– FOR ALL THOSE YEARS———

I HAVE KEPT CARDS & LETTERS– SOME I’M JUST NOT READY TO PITCH YET!!!!!!

LOTS OF MEMORIES IN THOSE NEWS PAPERS– I WROTE– THOSE LETTERS– THOSE EDITORALS I WROTE—–

I DID AN E-MAIL FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS OR LONGER OF “WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON IN CHASE COUNTY OF KANSAS”??? I KEPT A COPY OF ALL OF THEM–

I WROTE ABOUT OUR LIVESTOCK– CHICKEN STORIES– PEOPLE STORIES– HISTORY OF THE AREA–  FAMILIES THAT HOMESTEADED THE AREA– PARTIES– EVENTS– CAR SHOWS– TOUR GROUPS– YOU NAME IT I WROTE ABOUT IT!!!

SOOOOOO MANY MEMORIES ——

DANCE JUST

LOSTS OF MILES OF DANCING IN THOSE PUBLICATIONS– I WROTE– EDITED &  PUBLISHED!!!!!!!!!

DANCE STIFLE

I GUESS THIS BLOG— HAS SUBSTITUTED FOR THE PUBLICATIONS OF THE NEWS PAPERS– NEWS LETTERS- ETC -ETC -ETC ETC & THE PUBLICATIONS FROM MY PAST  🙂 

I STILL HEAR FROM OLD TIME FRIENDS WHO TELL ME HOW MUCH THEY MISS THE NEWSPAPERS & EDITORALS I USE TO WRITE— & THE NEWS & PERSONAL STORIES I USE TO SHARE— FUN TIMES— BUT LIFE MOVES ON!!!!! 🙂

FOR THE HECK OF IT– I MIGHT SHARE SOME OLD TIME  PERSONAL STORIES–  THAT WERE PUBLISHED LONG AGO!! 🙂

3 TYPES OF PEOPLE

MANY MANY MANY SMALL TOWNS HAVE DIED — BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT ANY CHANGE– OR ANYONE “NEW” OR OUTSIDERS  IN “THEIR TOWN” THAT THEY COULD NOT TOTALLY CONTROL & STOP ANY CHANGE– OR GROWTH!!!

SO WHEN PEOPLE TALK TO ME ABOUT DYEING RURAL AMERICA– I CAN FIRST HAND SAY— MANY MANY MANY OF THOSE SMALL TOWNS ARE JUST WHAT THE POEPLE WHO LIVE IN THEM WANT-OR WANTED-  THEY WOULD RATHER HAVE DEATH– OVER ANY CHANGE!!!  SOME FAMILIES HAVE BEEN THE BIG DUCK IN A DRYED UP PUDDLE FOR YEARS– AND HAVING THAT CONTROL OVER THAT DRYED UP PUDDLE WAS ALL THEY EVER HAD IN LIFE!!! THEY HAD TO STAY IN THAT AREA– & NEVER LEAVE– AS NO WHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD WOULD ANYONE CARE WHAT THEIR NAME WAS– OR HOW MUCH MONEY THEIR FAMILY HAD OR INHERITED!!

WHEN WE STARTED BUSINESSES IN SMALL TOWNS– & BROUGHT IN BUS TOURS– & CAR TOURS– & SHOPPERS FROM AL OVER THE STATE– THE SMALL COMMUNITY THAT WAS DEAD– WOULD SAY– WELL WE DON’T WANT ANOTHER BRANSON, MO. HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  SO FUNNY WHEN I LOOK BACK ON IT NOW– & WE NOW LIVE IN BRANSON, MO.– WE PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE MOVED HERE 30 PLUS YEARS AGO!!!!! 🙂 

TAKE WHAT YA NEED

attending

WHEN PEOPLE SAY TO ME I WANT TO BE A WRITER-I WANT TO WRITE STORIES– OR A NEWSPAPER– ETC- ETC -ETC– – WELL EITHER YOU HAVE THE GOD GIVEN TALENT OR YOU DON’T— IF YA WANT TO WRITE—– WRITE!!!!!!!!!!!

PEOPLE USE TO SAY TO ME ALL THE TIME– I WISH I HAD GONE TO BEAUTY SCHOOL TO LEARN HOW TO DO MY OWN HAIR—- WELL FOLKS— IF YOU DID NOT  HAVE THAT GOD GIVEN TALENT IN THE FIRST PLACE– THERE IS NO SCHOOL GOING TO BE ABLE TO TEACH IT TO YOU—EITHER YOU HAVE THE TALENT OR YOU DON’T— I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH MANY WHO NEVER MADE IT THROUGH A FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL– LET ALONE GRADUATE OR PASS THEIR STATE BOARDS– 

I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE SAY– I WANT TO PAINT & DRAW– BUT I CAN’T EVEN DRAW A STICK PERSON—– WELL EITHER YOU HAVE THAT GOD GIVEN TALENT OR YOU DON’T!!!!!!!!!! YES– YOU CAN RECEIVE INSTRUCTION– BUT EITHER YOU HAVE THE GOD GIVEN TALENT OR YA DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING–& YOU HAVE THE TALENT– JUST GO FOR IT!!!!!!!! NO ONE IS OR CAN DO IT FOR YOU!!!!!!!!

ASSHOLES

FOR YEARS I HAD ASSHOLES TELLING ME– I COULD NOT DO IT— I FINALLY FOUND MY SELF-ESTEEM– & TOLD THEM TO HIDE & WATCH ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
