Good Afternoon, nothing much today just some thoughts and other stuff

Good afternoon, I am going to share with you some of my thoughts that I have had today, thoughts like why do we say corner of the world when the world is round and has no corners.

I am also wondering why is it after we vacuum the floor it looks like it hasn't been done in less then half an hour or is that just my floor, the same thing happens when we wash the floor someone will walk on it and it will look like it hasn't been done in not time.

I had to go and get Blain from school as he is feeling sick and of course tonight it is Leo's school show and I am expected to go because Jessica can't go alone, but she did only buy 2 tickets as she forgot that I would have Blain so don't know what is going to happen with that, and if he is unwell should I take him out oh well we will see how he is later on.

On Monday I went to a funeral, an old family friend passed away on the 31st in fact Tim and I were still at the airport when my eldest daughter rang to tell me the news. We knew it was coming but it was still a shock to hear that she had passed away. It was a big funeral in fact it was the biggest funeral I have ever attended, they had to go and find more seats as there was so many there they ran out of room.

In other news yesterday a man was shot outside the local post office this is only a 2 minute drive from my place, the man was waving a machete or large knife around was threatening the police they told him to drop the knife or they would shoot but of course he didn't and they shot and killed him. The man was a staff member, in fact he was well known to me as he served me often while I was in the store and I am shocked to hear that he lost it and was killed.

Ok that is all from me for this post as I don't what else to say.

Dearest Jo-Anne,
That is a lot of things going on still and some very sad ones.
Yes, a funeral can often surprise us and be so quick. It is so final and nothing can be done nor said anymore.
That man really lost it and volunteered for his own death in this way. Very sad but think about what could have happened with a person like that in public.
Sending you hugs,

On the vacuum- the answer is simple- because we can't walk on the ceilings!

Wow, sorry to hear about the dude at the post office. People are finding their breaking points more and more. I'm still hoping to be hit by lightning before I snap.

I clean my house, and it needs to be cleaned again immediately. It's kind of like doing laundry. No matter how much laundry you wash, you'll always have more. It's a bottomless pit of laundry. Why do we say "in my neck of the woods"? I don't live in the woods. I'm sorry about your friend who died, and the postal worker who was killed. The largest funeral I've ever attended was my dad's. So many people were there that they couldn't all find seats.

Life seems to be one long battle against dust and dirt--LOL!
What is it about postal workers?
I even named my blog Soulcomfort's Corner--for corner of the world--and I don't know why we say that--LOL! :)

Yes indeed there are a lot of flowers outside the post office for the guy who died, and it's staffed by substitute people at the moment

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

No indeed he always seemed happy and together and I wouldn't had thought he would flip out like he did

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Yeah the post office was open today but was manned by substitute staff

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

I don't think that many will turn up to my funeral and since I will be dead I guess I will never know how many turn up. I also don't live in the woods but often say in my neck of the woods

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Yeah housework in any form is never really done as no soon as you think you are done it needs doing again.

Now it's dads turn

Guess what, yesterday morning my sister Sandra rings to let me know she had to ring the ambos for dad, he was having trouble breathing an...
