A BOWL OF OATMEAL–& MEMORIES–& STORIES

GOOD MORNING— I AM STARTING TO ANSWER SEVERAL HUNDRED E-MAILS THIS MORNING FOR MY MCS SISTERS—- & I HAD A BOWL OF OATMEAL– & AS I WAS FIXING MY OATMEAL– IT REMINDED ME OF WHEN I WAS STAYING WITH MY OLDEST BROTHER A SHORT TIME BEFORE HE DIED– & HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW LIVED WITH MY BROTHER & HIS WIFE– & HIS MIL– WAS A VERY SHELTERED SWEET CHRISTIAN LADY– & ONE MORNING– SHE MADE MY BROTHER OATMEAL– & ASKED ME –IF I WOULD TAKE IT TO MY BROTHER–(HIS MIL SAYS HE LOVES OATMEAL) SO I TOOK  MY BROTHER  THE OATMEAL– & HE SAID– SONDA- I HATE OATMEAL!!!! I SAID –I DIDN’T KNOW THAT– YOU DON’T HAVE TO EAT IT– & HE SAID– OH– YES I DO– BELIEVE ME– FOR MANY MANY YEARS NOW– I HAVE FOUND IT IS JUST EASIER TO EAT THE OATMEAL!!!!!! 🙂 HEE HEE  

I FOUND MY BROTHER VERY WELL KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT– ONE MORNING– MY SISTER-IN-LAW WHO WAS A “CITY GIRL”– WAS GOING TO HAVE HER HAIR COLORED & CUT– & DO SOME SHOPPING– SO I WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO SPEND THE DAY WITH MY BROTHER– & MAYBE GET HIM ANYTHING HE NEEDED- AS AT THE TIME HE WAS IN A HOSPITAL BED IN THE FAMILY ROOM–THE CANCER WAS GAINING ON HIM– (I DO SO WISH I KNEW ALL THE ALTERNATIVE  TREATMENTS I KNOW NOW FOR CANCER– & MAYBE I COULD HAVE SUGGESTED THEM TO HIM– BUT–)  SO ANYWAY– MY BROTHER & I WERE WATCHING RFDTV- & THEY WERE SELLING BLACK ANGUS CATTLE WHEN MY SISTER-IN-LAW– LEFT FOR THE DAY– MY BOTHER & I WATCHED MANY THINGS ON TV DURING THE DAY– BUT JUST BEFORE MY SIL CAME BACK HOME– RFDTV WAS SELLING BLACK ANGUS CATTLE AGAIN–MY SIL WALKED IN & LOOKED AT US– LOOKED AT THE TV & SAID– I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN WATCH ALL DAY LONG –THEM SELL THE SAME CATTLE OVER & OVER & OVER—I  STARTED TO OPEN MY MOUTH TO EXPLAIN– & MY BROTHER SAID– NO– SAVE YOUR BREATH– JUST EAT THE OATMEAL!!!!!!!!!!  🙂  SOOOOOOO FUNNY– AS MY BROTHER WAS A MAN OF FEW WORDS!!!!!!!!!!  🙂  I DO SO MISS MY OLDEST BROTHER— I THOUGHT HE WALKED ON WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 

I HAD 2 OLDER BROTHERS– & MY OLDEST BROTHER (WHO HATED OATMEAL) DIED OF CANCER– BUT HE ALWAYS WORKED IN LARGE CITIES– BUT WAS ONE HELL OF A COWBOY– JUST MOST PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW IT!!!  MY NEXT OLDER BROTHER ALWAYS HAD HORSES & LIVESTOCK– BUT IT WAS MY OLDEST BROTHER WHO WAS REALLY THE HORSE WHISPER– ONE TIME WE WERE ALL AT MY DAD’S BARN & FOUND SOMEONE OF THE GRANDKIDS DIDN’T LATCH A GATE– & THE NEXT THING I KNEW– ALL– & I MEAN ALL OF DAD’S  HORSES WERE RUNNING PAST US—— MY OLDEST BROTHER WHO HATED OATMEAL 🙂  SAID– I’LL GET THEM– & HE TOOK OFF ON FOOT!!!!!!!!! I SAID- TO DAD– SHOULD WE TRY TO HELP HIM– & MY DAD HAD A GLEANT  IN HIS EYE & SAID– NO HE CAN HANDLE IT!!!! WELL THOSE SAME HORSES HAD GOTTEN OUT BEFORE– & IT TOOK MY NEXT BROTHER & I & A FEED BUCKET & DAD’S DOG– & HOURS TO GET THEM BACK HOME–WELL WITH IN AN HOUR– HERE COMES MY BROTHER RIDING LITTLE BABE– WITH ONLY A PIECE OF BAILING TWINE AROUND HER NECK FOR A BRIDLE–& HE HAD ANOTHER PIECE OF BAILING TWINE AROUND ANOTHER HORSE CINDY’S NECK TO LEAD HER– & THE OTHER HORSES WERE FOLLOWING ALONG IN SINGLE FILE BEHIND HIM!! ONLY SOMEONE WHO KNEW HOW HARD TO CATCH THOSE HORSES– & THEIR TEMERPAMENT WOULD KNOW WHAT A FEAT THAT WAS!!!!!!!!!! AS I SAID– I THOUGH MY BROTHER WALKED ON WATER!!!! 🙂 

ONE TIME YEARS AGO- WHEN I WAS STILL LIVING AT HOME ON THE FARM– & MY OLDEST BROTHER (WHO HATED OATMEAL) WAS MARRIED & LIVED IN KC, MO. MY DAD WAS ON A LONG RUN WITH THE CATTLE TRUCK HE DROVE & OUR 2 NEIGHBOR MEN ED & CURLY CAME OVER & AS I WAS OUT AT THE BARN DOING CHORES & SAID– GEORGE OUR WHITE FACED HERFORD BULL WAS IN A NEIGHBOR’S PASTURE– BUT– THESE  PEOPLE WERE WELL KNOWN FOR THEIR RED- WHITE FACED  REGISTERED HERFORDS & –  & THEIR YEARLY HERFORD SALE IN OUR AREA– SO I SADDLED UP LADY- MY PAINT MARE– & THE NEIGHBOR MEN WENT OVER TO THE PASTURE WITH ME IN THEIR PU TRUCK– & AS SOON AS GEORGE SAW ME– HE STARTED CHARGING ME  & MY MARE– HE DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE THOSE COWS—–WELL MY MOTHER  & MY SISTER KNEW NOTHING & I MEAN NOTHING ABOUT OUR LIVESTOCK & YOU PRAYED THEY JUST STAYED AT THE HOUSE– AS THEY COULD TOTALLY RUIN A GOOD DAY IF THEY CAME TO THE BARN TO HELP OUT!!! SO I SAID– TO ED– HAVE ANY IDEAS??? HE SAID MAYBE CALL YOUR OLDEST BROTHER IN KC & SEE WHAT HE THINKS– SO I GO TO ED’S HOUSE & USE HIS PHONE SO MOTHER DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON– AS IF DAD WAS AT HOME– IT WAS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE TIMES– DAD WOULD HAVE SAY– THIS IS SOMETHING WE DON’T NEED TO TELL YOUR MOTHER!!!!!! 🙂  SO I GO TO ED’S HOUSE & CALL MY BROTHER AT HIS WORK PLACE— & I TELL HIM THE PROBLEM– & HE SAID– STAY AWAY FROM THE PASTURE– YOU CAN’T GET THAT BULL OUT BY YOUR SELF– & WHEN WILL DAD BE HOME?– & I SAID IN ABOUT 3 DAYS –SO MY BROTHERS SAID– JUST STAY AWAY FROM THE BULL– & TELL ED & CURLY TO STAY WAY & JUST FORGET ABOUT GEORGE THE BULL BEING OVER THERE– WHEN DAD GETS HOME– HE CAN GET HIM OUT & BRING HIM HOME!!!

SO — WE ALL LEAVE GEORGE ALONE WITH THE NEIGHBOR’S REGISTERED HERFORD COWS!!!  NOW– I DID FORGET TO SAY– GEORGE WAS NAMED GEORGE AFTER ANOTHER NEIGHBOR WE BOUGHT GEORGE FROM– & DAD GOT A GOOD BUY ON GEORGE BECAUSE GEORGE LIKED TO FIGHT– & NO ONE COULD CONTROL HIM– GEORGE HAD BEEN IN MANY FIGHTS– & HAD ONE EYE GONE– & ONE HORN BROKE OFF– & LOOKED LIKE THE REAL MEAN CHARACTER HE WAS!!!

BUT IN A FEW DAYS DAD IS HOME & ED & CURLY ALL MEET AT THE BARN TO TELL DAD ALL THAT HAD BEEN GOING ON WHILE HE WAS GONE!!! SO DAD SADDLED UP OLD DICK– HIS HORSE– GETS HIS LONG BLACK SNAKE WHIP– & I GET IN THE PU WITH ED & CURLY– AS THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE HELL OF A RODEO!!!!!!!!!!  DAD RIDES OVER TO GEORGE– & SAYS– YOU ORNERY–BLANK– BLANK– BLANK– YOU ARE GOING HOME– & GEORGE CHARGES DAD & DICK  & DAD CRACKS THAT LONG BLACK SNAKE BULL WHIP LIKE ONLY MY DAD COULD—–& IT CRACKS & IT CRACKS AGAIN & AGAIN– GETTING CLOSER TO GEORGE ALL THE TIME– BUT NOT HITTING HIM– & HEADS HIM TO THE PASTURE GATE WITH CRACKING THE BLACK SNAKE WHIP!!!  AND GEORGE TURNS TO CHARGE DAD– & DAD CRACKS THE WHIP AGAIN– FINALLY GEORGE IS IN THE PEN BEHIND THE BIG HORSE BARN– WITH THE BEST FENCE ON OUR PLACE & WELL THAT IS DONE– GEORGE IS HOME AGAIN!!!!!!!

SO FAST FORWARD TO THE NEXT REGISTERED HERFORD SALE– OF OUR OTHER NEIGHBORS WHO LIVE WAY SOUTH OF US– BUT HAVE AN ADJOINING PASTURE OF CURLY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF OUR FARM & THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE REGISTERED HERFORD SALE– THEIR SON IS THE AUCTIONEER  & IS WELL KNOWN ALL OVER—- WHO COMES FROM KC & THEY ADVERTISE THIS SALE ALL OVER & PEOPLE COME FROM ALL OVER KS & OKLA. & MO. FOR THIS SALE TO BUY REGISTERED CALVES– BULLS & COLTS!!

AND SO ED & CURLY & DAD & I GO TO THE AUCTION–KNOWING MOST OF THESE CALVES THEY ARE SELLING BELONG TO OLD ONE EYED  MEAN GEORGE– OUR BULL— NOT THEIR REGISTERED BULLS—&&&&& OH GOSH– EVERYONE IS SAYING HOW MUCH BETTER THE CALVES ARE THIS SEASON FOR THE SALE– THE CALVES BRING THE BEST PRICES THEY HAVE FOR YEARS– DID THIS FAMILY GET NEW BULLS???? (AS FAR AS I KNOW– ALL THESE 50 PLUS YEARS LATER NO ONE ELSE IS ALIVE THAT KNOWS THE REST OF THE STORY BUT ME!!!!!!!!) 🙂  I USUALLY DON’T TELL STORIES ON PEOPLE WHEN THEY CAN STILL GET INTO TROUBLE– I WAIT A WHILE!!!!  🙂  HEE HEE

THE ONLY TIME MY DAD EVER SPANKED ME IN MY LIFE— I WAS NEVER SUPPOSE TO TOUCH DAD’S BLACK SNAKE WHIP– MAINLY BECAUSE I COULD HAVE WRAPPED IT AROUND MY OWN NECK & KILLED MY SELF!!! ALSO I WAS YOUNG & THIS WHIP WAS ABOUT 4 OR 5 TIMES LONGER THAN I WAS TALL!!!! BUT SOMETIMES I DID NOT DO AS I WAS TOLD– & MY OLDER SISTER WHO NEVER EVER EVER CAME TO THE BARNYARD–BECAUSE SHE WAS SCARED TO DEATH OF ALL THE LIVESTOCK & SHE ALSO MIGHT HAVE TO DO SOME FORM OF WORK-  OR CHORES— CAME TO THE BARNYARD THAT DAY–WHY I DON’T KNOW— & I HAD DAD’S BLACK SNAKE BULL WHIP– & WAS TRYING TO CRACK IT— & I PICKED UP A ROCK OUT OF THE GRAVEL BARN YARD LOT– & THAT ROCK HIT MY SISTER–  SHE SCREAMED & YELLED– & CRIED & CARRIED ON LIKE THE SISSY SHE WAS– & I DON’T KNOW WHERE DAD CAME FROM– BUT HE HAD ME IN ONE SWOOP & THE FIRST & LAST SWATS I EVER GOT FROM MY DAD!!!  🙂   DID I LEAVE HIS BLACK SNAKE WHIP ALONE AFTER THAT— NO!!!!!!!!!!!!  🙂  HEE HEE  AND I GOT PRETTY DARNED GOOD WITH IT ALSO THE OLDER I GOT!!!!!  🙂  HEE HEE

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!!!
