Donate Pumpkins, Pumpkins, and more Pumpkins..!

 

All these years and it didn't occur to me to donate pumpkins at season's end..!?! 

Better late than never I always say. 

Pumpkins last well into November, so after Thanksgiving, after the pumpkin pie when meals are satisfied (and wallets a little thinner), when there are left-over whole pumpkins from decorations, 

please think about donating to the critters at your local zoos. 

In addition to rescue work, whether one agrees with zoo-keeping or not, it can help the critters. 

Help with their play-time enrichment and ease the cost of food a bit, especially when it's so difficult to donate either time or money, these can be wonderful places to help out and recycle..!

Businesses Open 4 Business...

 It looks like businesses are opening ever so cautiously on my route. 

That the machines are doing okay is a plus.  

One very nice owner said that no one visited the machines and I could remove it if I wanted, but when I opened it up to see just how bad it was, it wasn't bad at all! I could even tell the way the quarters fell into the hopper that it was visited different times, very awesome! 

That's exactly the way the route is supposed to be, too, productively unobtrusive. 

It's still too small of a route to count, a lot of people, stores, and machines lost along the way, and I don't expect to exactly be able to make a living from it, but I started it for the critters, and we all held out. 

I didn't give up and am pleased with the results.

I say prayers every Friday, not sure why Fridays, just always worked out that way, maybe so I can go into the weekends without worry. May Gd bless us, He knows what He's doing...

No Comments...

 This blog is getting lots of emails without any commentary, just email addresses. 

Only a few emails have their business names within their domain but without a question or comment, I can only guess it’s a sales attempt. 

When the email is from gmail or yahoo with no question or comment, what am I supposed to do with that? 

Are comments coming thru or even being typed in? Please Comment! Thanks

Earn, Save, and Give..!

 I'm very proud to support HSUS, Humane Society of the United States. 

They have gone after and closed down pitbull fighting rings, they helped support, re-train, and re-home Vick's dogs, keeping their new homes secret for fear that champion fighters would be stolen, very dangerous. 

It is a drawback because in order to help animals, organizations sometimes get involved in politics. 

When certain groups of animals are found to be thin and not thriving, organizations will try to resolve the problem by getting involved politically in misguided efforts to help the animals. 

The underlying problem is almost always financial which can be very difficult to track without the wherewithal to do so, often requiring time and money just to track financial support of political groups, a notoriously difficult thing to do! 

One thing I'm still trying to understand is why SeaWorld doesn't advertise all the wonderful rescue work they do..?!? When they were getting bashed and nearly closed down years ago, they didn't seem to bother to defend themselves at all, at least not publicly. 

Reputable Aquariums and Zoos frequently, directly or indirectly, support rescue work, and it's very expensive to feed everyone, please support them during difficult times. 

Reminder, animals that were born and raised in the care of humans would not survive in the wild. They are not necessarily so miserable as to have to be 'set free' to fend for their lives and compete for food supply.

Thank you!

 I received this communication thru the contact form and decided to post it here as-is. 

Sometimes I get ads for website design and sales of all sorts; apparently, this email is from an animal hospital in New Mexico.

Another Day, Another Dollar...

 Let's see, since today is Sunday, October 10, 2020, I was going to include today's Bible verse, but it's too gloomy even for Halloween, so in Halloween tradition, I'll include a pumpkin, and from the Bible,  any verse from Proverbs. 



This was from the fair last year, wasn't held this year and I miss it very much. 




✅    Halloween decorations 

✅    Watered plants 

✅    Caught up on sleep

I'm Cleaning House..!

 Literally! 

I've added cleaning homes to my repertoire, why not? :-) 

I can't talk about them online of course, but I can let my blog say how it's going. 

So far, I love everything I do, from the Charity boxes vending route, to delivering food and goodies, 

offering books for sale, and now cleaning beautiful homes. Anyone who cares enuf about their homes to have them professionally cleaned will have a beautiful home. 

Who says we don't want to work, I love it! 

Actually, I prefer being home and caring for my place, puttering around the house is one of my favorite things, but the previous lockdown made me fat and lazy and it's good to get out again! 

I'm not able to go to church and I can't wear masks, but I can read my Bibles and pray, and I can still work. It's not easy but I hope to God and pray to God that there is a God.

Books, Gigs, and FPU

FPU..? 


 I would like to take the time to thank FPU-Financial Peace University, 

and specifically Mr. Dave Ramsey, Chris Hogan, Christy Wright, and their respective radio shows on Siriusxm. 

Dave! When Dave's show comes on, I shout Dave..! Great voice, The Voice! 

He knows his program has not only saved marriages, but has saved lives. 

The program made me realize that u gotta redirect your focus from whining to work no matter what it is. 

'It's hard to be hateful when you're grateful', I quote Mr. Chris Hogan all the time. 

Christy Wright's Goal Planner inspires constantly, from the uplifting quotes to the occasional Bible text, I sent off for the 2021 planner just to stay inspired during these tough times.  

I have been selling books online ever since Half.com came into being in 2000, and Ms Wright's inspiration said to do what u love, which for me is books and I soon found out how to make a living selling books, but it's tough for sure. 

And I say it right now, I can't officially stay inside the program because I still have a credit card. 

I cut one up but kept the other one, a big no-no, and I should know better after over a year in the program. 

I'm not going to make excuses either because Dave's program makes perfect sense during the virus, even during the horrible lock-down, the program applied more than ever. 

My family is awesome support, but they aren't for public consumption on the world-wide-web.

Becoming debt-free is slow and often quite tedious, but without the program, I wouldn't even have afforded internet service, it was bad! 

So thanks from a very really long distance away in cyber-space, and I recommend the program here; 

DaveRamsey.com 

Real easy to remember, too. 

No affiliate link necessary, and if u call in with a real story, he gives away the course for free to help families right now. Everything about it is amazing...

Thoughts for Recovery

 Some Recovery Food 4 Thought; 

Remembering 9-11 attack with prayers for survivors, those gone and here. 

Recovering from virus attack with prayers of protection, 

Recovering from joblessness, hopelessness, fear. 

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. 

-Isaiah 60:1 

Beware the light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably another train coming. 

-my Dad the hunter

When one is so Pro-Life, they aren't able to harm any living being.  

-me the zen
