Hello My Friends, I hope this finds you all well and happy with everything in your lives.
I am doing quite well and not worrying about any impending problems. I guess we are all
pending in some way or other and there is no time frame on impending, so let us just forget it. There have been some lovely days here lately and everything looks brighter until we get those strong winds.
My wisteria has been in full bloom for a week or so and then we got two very windy days and now I have a lovely mauve carpet of fallen flowers. Fortunately it didn't get them all.
I saw a blackbird with a leaf or something in its mouth so it is nest building. My little maple tree has a nest in it that has been renewed and reused several times and I think that is where the blackbird was heading. I filled the bird-bath out the front and before I could get out of sight a blackbird ame and had his bath, so he was not a bit afraid of me. Or else he was very hot and dirty.
First item tonight is Get out of your own way. from Mountain Wings.
GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY! ========================= Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it: Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have power to create conditions in your life. What you speak about, you can bring about. If you keep saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your job. If you keep saying you can't stand your body, your body can become sick. If you keep saying you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen or just stop operating. If you keep saying you're always broke, guess what? You'll always be broke. If you keep saying you can't trust a man or trust a woman, you will always find someone in your life to hurt and betray you. If you keep saying you can't find a job, you will remain unemployed. If you keep saying you can't find someone to love you or believe in you, your very thoughts will attract more experiences to confirm your beliefs. Turn your thoughts and conversations around to be more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love and action. Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you want and deserve. Watch your "Thoughts," they become words. Watch your "Words," they become actions. Watch your "Actions," they become habits. Watch your "Habits," they become character. Watch your "Character," for it becomes your "Destiny." GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY! ~Author Unknown~ Thank you for inviting MountainWings in your mailbox. See you tomorrow.<><>
Next one was sent by my good friend Lee. It is amazing, so I do hope it comes through.
Subject: Uplifting and joyful! Now THIS is great use of computer technology - just wonderful!
M My dear friend Jeanette sent me the "Walking the Dog" true story.
WALKING THE DOG ...
A WOMAN was flying from Melbourne to Brisbane ...
Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sydney
along the way. The flight attendant explained that
there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted
to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board
in 50 minutes.
Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was
blind. A man had noticed her as he walked by and
could tell the lady was blind because her Guide
Dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her
throughout the entire flight..
He could also tell she had flown this very flight before
because the pilot approached her, and calling her by
name, said, 'Kathy, we are in Sydney for almost
an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?'
The blind lady replied, 'No thanks, but maybe Buddy would
like to stretch his legs.'
All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill
when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane
with a Guide dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses...
They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!
True story... Have a great day and remember...
...THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS AS THEY APPEAR.
My cousin Karyn from New Zealand sent the next one

My good friend Linda from Canberra sent me this
last one, "After the Honeymoon." Thanks Linda.
Subject: After the honeymoon...
Please excuse the four letter words in the following story
I would have deleted them, but it would lose its impact without them....
A young couple got married and went on their honeymoon.Sobbing, the bride said,
When they got back, the bride immediately called up her mother.
"Well," said her mother, "so how was the honeymoon?"
"Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic..."
Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started using the most horrible language -- things I'd never heard before! I mean all these awful four-letter words! You've got to take me home..., "PLEASE MAMA!"
"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! You need to stay with your husband and work this out. Now, tell me, what could be so awful? WHAT four-letter words?"
"Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter, "I'm so embarrassed, they're just too awful! COME GET ME, PLEASE!!"*
"Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset. Tell your mother these horrible four-letter words!"
"Oh, Mama..., he used words like: dust, wash, iron, and cook...
I'll pick you up in twenty minutes," said the mother.
Well it is time to close this post and get off to bed.
I think my daughter Kathy is coming tomorrow so that
will be great as we only see each other 2 or 3 times a
year. Dairy farms are so restrictive of time away and
holidays. Take great care of yourselves and each other
my dear friends, until next week, My love and best
wishes Cheers, Merle.
