Mr. Turkey

I took this photo from inside the house in March with my lens that Santa brought me for Christmas. I hope this fellow  makes it through the Spring hunting season. It is fun to watch the males strut to try and get the ladies to pick him as a mate. 

The Kitty Justice is I had much rather watch these turkeys than the ones who run around in suits.

ANIMALS AND CHILDREN

Lilly as a small kitten. I had to use love and rules for her to train her to be a good cat. When she did not do what I wished, I used a spray bottle of water. Punishment but not harmful and also I would raise and deepen my voice to let her know I did not like what she was doing. Whereas, I would praise her in my squeaky voice and give her a treat when she did what I approved she had done. Children can be handled the same if they respect you as adults. 

Now here is the crust of the matter. Nashville has changed and not for the better. Crime in my once easy going city has become the norm instead of the exception. Lots of the crimes are done by youths, some as young as 10 with most not old enough to be charged as an adult. Five youths were arrested for killing an up and coming young singer because he refused to give them his car keys. Three youths shot a man in the leg as he was enjoying a day sitting on his porch. 4 were arrested last evening for stealing a pregnant woman's car. And on and on it goes. Some people blame it on violent video games and I am sure it can desensitive them but also the daily news has the same effect. 

Our police department cannot get enough recruits because the people are not backing our police department for doing their job. Well the voters just voted for a Police Oversight Committee. The police already had paid oversight called Internal Affairs. The taxpayers are paying large salaries for the people who are on the POC. This money would be better spent trying to help the youths before they commit crimes which will more or less affect their entire life. 

Looks like to me that Respect and Common Sense have fell in the same bucket and someone slamed the lid close. 

THE KITTY JUSTICE IS CHILDREN SHOULD BE RAISED INSTEAD OF GROWING UP ON THEIR OWN. WHERE ARE THE PARENTS, COMMUNITY, AND CHURCH? I GUESS THEY ARE WATCHING THE POLICE.

AMAZON DELIVERY

FRIST OF ALL NO PHOTO CAN DESCRIBE HOW MY TIME WAS WASTED BY AMAZON. 

WE ARE PRIME MEMBERS AND THE TWO RESIDENCE SIDE BY SIDE HAVE HAD PEOPLE TO ORDER MANY TIMES FROM AMAZON AND WE WERE ALL SATISFIED UNTIL: I REPEATED TO ORDER AN ITEM THAT HAD BEEN ORDERED TWICE BEFORE. 

THE DAY IT WAS TO ARRIVE WAS SUNDAY SO I FIGURED IT WOULD NOT SHOW UNTIL MONDAY THE 4TH. 

ON THE 4TH AT 2 :51PM I GET AN E MAIL THAT READS "WE COULDN'T ENTER YOUR BUILDING TO DELIVER YOUR PACKAGE BUT WE WILL TRY AGAIN. PLEASE ADD INSTRUCTIONS TO HELP US ENTER"

6:05 I START A CHAT WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE. 3:55 PM PST, ARCHANA PASSED ME OFF TO SREEJA WITH THE STATEMENT "I AM TRANSFERRING YOU TO AMAZON LOGISTIC DEPARTMENT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS". 4:01 PM PST SREEJA STATED "THAT MIGHT BE CONFUSION FROM THE DRIVER'S END. PLEASE DON'T WORRY. YOUR PACKAGE SHOULD BE RE-ATTEMPTED FOR DELIVERY TODAY.

6:31PM E MAIL ARRIVED STATED "I AM VERY SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THE DELAY WITH YOUR DELIVERY. THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR THE DRIVER TO RE-ATTEMPT DELIVERY OF YOUR PACKAGE. IF YOUR PACKAGE IS NOT DELIVERED BY THE END OF THE DAY TODAY, IT WILL BE REATTEMPTE ON 3-5-19 AS REQUESTED"

AGAIN NO PACKAGE CAME SO AT 8;48PM I STARTED A CHAT AGAIN WITH CS. IT WAS 6:32PM PST ON THEIR END. AGAIN I GOT SOMEONE NAME  VHIN WHO TRANSFERRED ME TO TADISHETTI BECAUSE IT WAS OUT OF HER EXPERTISE. AGAIN THIS PERSON ASKED ME IF THERE IS AN ACCESS CODE FOR THE BUILDING. AGAIN I SAID NO AND  I GAVE HER TURN BY TURN DIRECTIONS TO OUR HOUSE. AGAIN IT WAS INDICATED " THAT THEY HAD UPDATED THE NOTE TO THE DELIVERY ASSOCIATE AND THE PACKAGE WOULD BE DELIVERED TO ME. 

AT 9:58 ON 3-5-10 I GOT AN E MAIL FROM AMAZON THAT THEY WERE UNABLE TO DELIVER THE PACKAGE AI IT HAS BEEN MARKED LOST. 

3-6-19 AT 2:05 ANOTHER EMAIL ARRIVED STATING "YOUR AMAZON PACKAGE WILL BE DELIVERED TODAY. I GET A CALL FROM SOMEONE AT AMAZON WHO ASKED IF OUR STREET WAS FLOODED AND I ADVISED IT WAS NOT BUT ONE WAY TO OUR HOME WAS CLOSED DUE TO FLOOD REPAIRS."

MY DEAR HUSBAND CALLED THE 1-800 AND SPOKE WITH LEA AND TOLD HER HE COULD TALK WITH THE CARRIER AND GUIDE HIM STEP BY STEP AND GAVE HER HIS NUMBER. THERE ARE THREE OTHER WAYS TO GET TO OUR STREET WITHOUT USING THE CLOSED STREET WHICH HAS DETOUR SIGNS. 

AT 5:13 GOT AN E MAIL FROM LEA WITH A STATEMENT "TO ENSURE DELIVERY YOU MAY RECIEVE A CALL FROM THE DRIVER PRIOR TO DELIVERY. SHE ALSO INDICATED SHE HAD SENT DELIVERY INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED BY HIM DIRECTLY TO THE DELIVERY ASSOCIATE. NO CALL NO DELIVERY. 

ON 3-7-19 AT 6:46 AM ANOTHER EMAIL CAME WITH THE STATEMENT "THE PACKAGE IS BEING RETURNED TO US BY THE CARRIER. WE'VE ISSUED YOUR REFUND". 

3-7-19 AT 7:05PM ANOTHER EMAIL 'SORRY WE MISSED YOU. WE TRIED TO DELIVER YOUR PACKAGE TODAY BUT DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE IT UNATTENDED". THIS WAS AN ODD STATED FOR A RETURNED PACKAGE BECUASE THEY HAVE HAD NO PROBLEM BEFORE LEAVING PACKAGES ON THE FRONT PORCHES UP HERE ON THE HILL. 

I SENT AN EMAIL TO DAVE CLARK SVP WORLDWIDE OPERATIONS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE . NO REPLY

THERE ARE TWO KITTY JUSTICE 1. DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM AMAZON IF A ROAD IS CLOSED EVEN THOUGH YOU CAN GET TO IT THREE OTHER WAYS. 2. WHEN LIFE HAS OVERWHELMED YOU AND A TRUSTED COMPANY WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME MAYBE IT IS TIME TO LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE.

The Sewing Club

From left to right: Lucille, Mary Tom, Dell, Mary and Jane are standing. Harriet is sitting.

In my search for Lindsley information this past weekend, I came across this photo.  When Jane and her sister Patty (not shown) moved to the retirement places, Richland Place, Jane invited her sewing pals over for a lunch. 

The sewing club was started over seventy years ago and at first the ladies sewed baby clothes for their first born and there were several more ladies at that time. Ladies dropped out or were added within those years. Then sewing turned into luncheons at each others home every three weeks. The Club did not have officers but you could say Jane was the one who kept others informed. Most of the ladies had their own special menu and the others looked forward to those luncheons. Jane and  Opie (not shown) continued to bring sewing to be done and occasionally so did Dell. 

Growing up Prince and his brother Ed did not look forward to left overs from their mothers menu. They still joke about it if the sewing club is mentioned. 

As for me I got to help out when the ladies came here and it was fun to be included. Mostly I just listen to the others stories and I thought it was a fun way to spend the afternoon. The dither leading up to the luncheon was one I was not fond of because it involved  extra cleaning and decision made what to fix and when to get it etc etc. 

Some of the ladies children keep in touch now and I am sure they share sewing club stories. 

Please check out the Christmas stocking on the doorway. Jane made some of the children, their spouses also their children a stocking with name and year of birth . We hang ours every Christmas. We often wonder how many of Jane's stockings are hung up each Christmas. 

The Kitty Justice is only one member remains and that is my MIL.

HERE WE GO WHEREVER YOU ARE

 THIS IS A PAINTING I DID OF A DEAR FRIEND WHO IS NO LONGER WITH US. HE HAD CUT AN OAK TREE IN THE FRONT YARD AND HAD SPLIT IT INTO LOGS TO BE USE IN THE FIRE PLACE. FRANK COULD NOT READ OR WRITE BUT HE COULD PLACE A TREE ANYWHERE HE WANTED IT TO LAND. RIP 
THE LILLIES ARE JUST BEGINNING TO BLOOM BETWEEN OUR HOUSE AND THE CABIN. I JUST LOVE THESE AS THEY HAVE DOUBLE PETALS AND THEY ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITE COLORS. 

THE LITTLE CHURCH PAINTING IS OF A SMALL QUAINT CHURCH IN SPRING HILL. THIS AREA HAS BOOMED SINCE THEY BEGAN BUILDING CARS AND SUV. I SURE HOPE THIS LITTLE CHURCH HAS BEEN SAVED WITH ALL THE GROWTH. 

THE KITTY JUSTICE IS WHEREVER YOU ARE ENJOY THE DAY.

Need Help

I have two of these plants but alas after the initial bloom, neither have bloomed again. I have used Miracle Grow Bloom Booster on it but all I get are more green plants. Should I buy a special fertilizer for these or any advise would be appreciate?

The last two days have been hot and double hot here in Tennessee. Both days I was outside and I really looked as if I had just stepped out of a shower when I would venture in to have some water and cool off before heading out again. 

I finished painting the old Boss Kerosene Stove that Prince located in the old Mays house before we sold that part of the farm. I could still do a little touch up but that will have to wait for a cooler day. I had planned to use it as yard art but after I saw all the little nook for wasp etc could build in I took it down to the family room. I put it under the Nashville poster Puppy gave me last year for Christmas. I will try to get a photo of it later. I did put it on Face Book for those of you who follow me there. 

The plants I winter over in the basement have usually found their spot for the summer outside by now but I have two more to move before I am done. Whew, I think I still have too many after moving them outside and working on them to get them ready for their new residence. 

Yesterday I stood guard and acted as the one woman cheering section while Prince cut limbs from five trees that were hanging over the roof. Then he and Puppy took off most of the debris and he has a few more to remove from the back side of the house today. The Kitty Justice is Prince made a statement I thought I would never hear "I wish Dad had cut this Hickory tree". This was made in reference to the big tree just to the right of the front door.  As for me I wish my FIL had cut at least half of the trees that were left when the house was built because then they could have spread their branches instead of growing straight up . Everytime I go outside I hear the trees talking to one another saying "Race you to the moon"

Fog and Color

 LIFE IS LIKE A FOG. YEP YOU HEARD ME CORRECTLY.  AS YOU GET OLDER YOUR MEMORIES BECOME LESS VIVID AND HAVE SWIRLS OF TRUTH AND FICTION SWIRLING LIKE FOG IN OUR HEAD. ALSO, YOU ARE FOGGY AS TO WHY SOME ONE WOULD KILL FOLKS THEY DO NOT KNOW OR USE A HATCHET TO KILL A PERSON WHO FIRED YOU FROM A JOB A TOTAL OF 14 MONTHS AGO. YOU ARE LEFT IN THE DARK AS TO WHY THE MENTALLY ILL ARE NOT HELPED BUT LEFT TO THEIR OWN DEVICES . A COMPASSIONATE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE SOCIETY SHOULD HAVE PLACES FOR THESE PEOPLE INSTEAD OF LEAVING IT TO OUR GUARDIANS IN BLUE. I AM GETTING DIZZY UP HERE ON MY SOAP BOX BUT I REALLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND  WHY WE CANNOT GET A HANDLE ON SOME OF THIS OUTRAGEOUS STUFF. I AM UPSET ABOUT LEARNING THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A RAPE TREE AS SHOWN IN VIDEO FROM TUSCAN ARIZONA. THERE IS NO PLACE ON EARTH FOR SUCH HORRIBLE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS TO CHILDREN. BUT THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA HAS SAID NOTHING WHAT SO EVER ABOUT THIS BUT BOY THEY CAN SPEND LOTS OF MONEY ON THE TRUMP INVESTIGATION. WONDER JUST HOW MUCH ALL THAT "MUCH TO DO ABOUT NOTHING" WILL COST THE TAXPAYERS. THE NEWS MEDIA SHOULD GET OFF THEIR HIGH HORSES AND TRY TO GET SOMETHING DONE ABOUT REAL ISSUES. 
OR LIFE IS LIKE A FLOWER. WE HAVE MANY PETALS AND NOT ALL ARE THE SAME SHAPE SIZE OR COLOR BUT HERE WE ALL ARE ON THE SAME STEM MOTHER EARTH. 
THE KITTY JUSTICE WHETHER IT IS FOG OR FLOWER WE NEED TO GET OUR HEADS OUT OF THE SAND AND LET THE GRAINS FALL FROM OUR EARS.
