Jill's Brother

This is Jill again. Ida's still not well. She said she may have to give up her blog, because it's all she can do to keep up with her radio program and the special requests she receives from all her fans, plus her not feeling well. I told her I wouldn't mind taking over her blog and filling in at any time, even though I don't know how to write and don't have much to say. Ida told me to keep writing for her and that I was doing a fine job... I know she's just saying that to make me feel good.
The last blog I did was entitled "What's on Jill's mind", and apparently Moke is the only one who cared enough to find out, at least he's the only one who posted a comment. LOL! He's a good brother... he and Kasey are The Best Jerry, The Best!! They've done so much for me by letting me hang out with 'em, giving me support, and listening to all the weird stuff I talk about.
I just left their house after spending the weekend with them, and Moke said, "Jill, I laugh more with you than I do with anyone else." Wow, what a compliment. It's true what he said, we laugh and laugh. It's so much fun spending time with the two of 'em.
Did you know that Moke and Kasey are fine cooks! It's true. They fix a great grilled steak, an excellent BBQ brisket with cole slaw and beans, yummy soups, and delicious cornish hen. Oh! And when they're not cooking for me, we go to the best places in the World to eat, like McKenzie's BBQ and Taco Bueno!! Oh Momma!
When I go to visit them, they don't mind if I take a nap during the afternoon, isn't that the sweetest thing? We go to the movies and sometimes do some shopping, watch rented movies or just watch TV. And, Moke & Big Al let me act in their videos when there's a part for me. And Moke and I talk and talk and laugh and laugh! I consider him my best friend.
The reason I visited 'em this weekend is because I was supposed to do some acting with them in Cut and Shoot at a flea market, but I decided that after we went to church and I walked around a little bit, that my knee was not going to hold up very well with too much walking, and my lower back was giving me fits too. So I missed out on the acting bit, I was pretty sad about that, cause acting is lots of fun, especially with my brothers.
I'll be going up again next weekend to Moke & Kasey's Bed & Breakfast (cute, huh?). I have 2 reasons for going. The first is that Don Piper, the writer of "90 Minutes in Heaven", is going to be at The Ark Sunday morning. I've read his book and I've also listened to it on CD, what a remarkable man. I'm not missing out on a chance to see him and hear him talk, no way! I'm very excited about it. Would love to shake his hand and maybe put a little money in his pocket. Moke told me the guy doesn't ask to be paid for his preaching at other churches, just his expenses for traveling and staying over night.
The other reason I'll be going again to Conroe is because of our March Family Gathering. My nephew Nalin and his wife Kristy are hosting it. We have a good time at their home... they have a Wii. I won't be able to play with it though. I've gotta take care of my knee and back and make sure I don't hurt them any more. Forgot to mention that I had knee surgery and was feeling right as rain, but then I wasn't being careful and when I went to turn, my torso moved but my left leg didn't and I wrenched my knee! It hurts like the dickens! I'm doing physical therapy and am sure that it will be super duper some day.
Well, I guess that's enough of my rambling. I had a very nice weekend with M&K and I'm very thankful that God let Moke be my brother. He's a pickle. I just love pickles.

What's on Jill's mind

Hi everyone! It's me, Jill. I'm Mark and Al's sister (Please don't count that against me.). I can't believe that Ida let me fill in for her for awhile, especially since I don't know anything about doing this. I'm definitely not a writer that is for sure!

The cool think about this though is that I'm not expected to be "a writer" or "a columnist", cause I'm not. I can just put down on here whatever comes to my mind, and it doesn't have to be worded correctly or elaborately, just my words typed here on Ida's blog right here, soooo ah, I'm just gonna think of stuff and then gonna put it on here... Ah... well, let's see...

Okay... I don't like the Kardashians. There's a good place to start. I don't know who they are or where they come from, except that they're rich and pretty people, and somewhere in the family is the swimmer guy who got the nose job that looks absolutely terrible!! Hey that felt good to get off my chest! Let's see what else I can think of...

Have you ever eaten a whole wheat tortilla? Well don't. They're horrible! Of course someone's going to lose weight by eating them, cause they're unedible! Hey, this is fun!

"How I Met Your Mother" is a sucky show! I don't even know who the mother is? And they start some of the shows off with these 2 kids having to sit and listen to their dad talk about meeting their mother, only he doesn't talk about meeting her, he just talks about what he and his friends do or did. It's definitely no "Friends" I can tell you that much. It's just real sucky.

Oh man, I rented the movie "Push". Holy cow, don't waste your money, it's terrible, beyond terrible in fact. I couldn't watch the entire thing, it was just too stupid and terrible to sit through. I just saved you a few cents.

My family knows it, but you guys might not, I'm crazy about my grandsons Faolan and Rowan. they are the most beautiful little boys to ever live. Here's a picture of my son Ethan with Rowan. Ethan is an RN and Rowan is helping Daddy with his homework. Isn't this the sweetest, oh I know adorable in everyway, what did I tell ya?

Hey, this was fun! I truly enjoyed it. I don't know how much longer Ida will be feeling bad, I'll be sure to keep you up on her progress. I brought her some chicken soup today and she was loving every bit out of it. She said to say hi to all of her faithful and devoted readers out there. Am pretty sure she was talking to you Ms A.

Welp, till the next time, keep the wind at your back and don't roller skate in a buffalo herd... you can't do it.

Until I feel better...

Rooftoppers, I haven't been feelin' too well of late, so I asked someone to fill in for me on my blog page for a bit. She's that sister of Mark and Al Hayter. I don't know what she's gonna come up with or has to say, but she said she'd keep it clean.
She even offered to accept any get well cards that y'all might have to send me - you can mail them to her house and she'll bring 'em by for me. Thank you in advance for all the cards!

I really do appreciate this Jill. Do you think that the next time you drop by you could straighten the place up a bit, and pick me up some of that Crystal Lite Peach Tea that I like so much? Thanks darlin', as your brother Mark would say, "You're a peach."

I don't know about the rest of you Rooftoppers, but I love this cold weather... do believe I mentioned that before. Everybody's been fussin' and fussin' about the cold! Think people! Just think about it! In no time at all, it'll feel like 120 degrees out and like it's never gonna cool off! I think everybody forgets the sweatin' we do here durin' most of the year. I say, "Mr. Winter, you just stick around for as long as you'd like as far as I'm concerned."

A good friend of mine, Paul Gordy, I call 'im Paully, sent me the following jokes that you might find a little bit humorous. My favoirte is the last one.
How many men does it take to open a beer?
None. It should be opened when she brings it.
Why do women have smaller feet than men?
It allows them to stand closer to the kitchen sink.
How do you know when a woman is about to say something smart?
When she starts a sentence with, "A man once told me..."
How do you fix a woman's watch?
You don't. There's a clock on the oven.
If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is yelling at the front door, who do you let in first?
The dog, of course. He'll shut up once you let him in.
Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes a woman's sex drive by 90%.
It's called wedding cake.
Why do men die before their wives?
Because they want to.
Women will never be equal to men, until they walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut and still think they're sexy.
