I Dreamed of My Mom and Dad Together

My dad passed away in 1979.  My mom passed away in 2002.

I dreamed of my dad's passing a week before it happened.
And right after he passed I dreamed of him once or twice.
I don't remember dreaming him at any other time in my life since.
Maybe one other time.

I dreamed of what happened to my mom a month before it happened.
After she passed I dreamed of her and dream of her many nights.
Some times I believe it is actually her.
Some times I believe it is just me dreaming.

I just dreamed tonight of my mom and dad sitting at the bar together again.

I was sleeping on the couch, and I heard them in the dining room talking and I got up to go to the kitchen to check on something to eat.  I walked by them sitting at the bar together like they did most nights when I was a boy.  I went into the kitchen and opened up the fridge and closed it and then looked out the kitchen window and there was snow on the ground.  Even though yesterday for real I was working at my garden job and it was nearly 90 degrees.

I walked back through the dining room and my mom and dad were still there and I told them that it snowed even though it was just almost 90 degrees yesterday.

I went back and laid on the couch, but then got up and walked into the dining room to talk to them.....
I started telling them that I haven't seen them together much, and then I woke up.

I barely, if at all, dreamed of my dad since his passing.

There was nothing unusual about them.
They were normal.
No smiles.

Wonder what the dream meant?

I know the friend of the family has left me a note to call him.
Something happened to a member of the family I will bet.

Back to bed.

"It will be disastrous.".

It is after 2AM.  I just woke up after having a dream.  It was a lengthy dream that didn't seem to mean much.  But the ending did?

It ended with me walking through m front room and my mom was sitting there.  And a man was sitting by the doorway.  It was at night.  A table light was on.  There was a BIG block of watermelon there.  My mom just bought it?  I took a slice.

My mom was just staring down at the wall.  With a sad worried look? Turned toward the wall at an angle.

I asked her, "What's wrong, mom?".
She said, "I think I'm dying.".

I knelt down next to her and put my arm around her and said, "Is it ok if I stay here?". Meaning there with her with my arm around her.

I said, "It will be ok.".

She said looking down with that continuous worried said look and said, "It will be disastrous."

She was saying it as a statement.

I think she was talking about me?  Living here?  Or a member of my family?  Or something happening in the world?

"Disastrous" is a word I think my angels have used at times when I was writing to them? But I couldn't tell how or why since I can't hear/make out most of what they say.  Only words here and there.

I guess I will find out what my mom meant unfortunately.

Or I should pray. Pray for it to be avoided.  

The parts of he dream right before that don't mean anything, I don't think.

I was playing one-on-one basketball with my childhood friend in the YMCA gym.  Then went to get a drink of water in the gym fountain.

From there I was at the house watching a movie with my mom.  Of 2 actresses.

Then I walked through the front room with my mom there.

So I should pray about the end.

Thomas Sowell Dismantles the Ideology of "Social Justice"

Stupid Copycats & "Cabbage Rose" Teacups

A lot of teacup listing on Ebay and on Etsy is from sellers copying other sellers.  And one of the most obvious examples is the use of "cabbage" rose.

If you search on Etsy and on Ebay for "cabbage rose tea cup" you will find MOST of them are NOT cabbage roses.

That shows you how stupid so many teacup sellers are.

If it doesn't look like a head of cabbage, it is NOT a cabbage rose.

Just because the rose petals are not fully opened does not make them a cabbage rose.  Anyone over the age of 5 should know that.

I have been copied A LOT on Etsy and on Ebay and I will something to say about that in an upcoming blog post.

Stay tuned!

Blue Ain't Your Color by Keith Urban

I worked at my garden job yesterday getting some of the last plants into the ground.  We are nearly a month late in getting the garden planted.

Afterwards I decided to ride my bike to the Goodwill on the South Side.

While I was shopping Keith Urban's song played.  I loved it.  I wanted to sing along.


I got some new pics of teacups taken for my Ebay store and I am playing it here this Memorial Day morning and singing along.....

Purple Iris Blooming at the Mexican War Sts Garden in Pittsburgh

I walked a block over to Arch St to get something to eat and as I walked by the garden, a block and a half down the street from Randyland, I saw a few purple irises blooming.  They were so pretty I just wanted to take pics of them.  It was after it had rained and there were rain drops on the petals.

After eating and charging the battery for my Pentax camera I walked over to take some pics.  Most of the rain drops had dried up.

I set my camera to a setting I have not tried before.  The "flower" setting on the "Program" setting.  I had taken pics of tulips at my garden job recently and they didn't turn out too good.  I have taking indoor pics down pretty good with my camera.  And I need more practice taking outdoor pics.  Especially of flowers.

The pics turned out so pretty.  I was glad I stopped:
