One Week

8:00 p.m…Here’s how you know you are extremely tired:  you are shopping at Walmart pushing a huge, heavy basket with stuff overflowing out the top. You are going up the main food aisle and traffic is heavy (kind of like rush hour). You are trying to make a left turn down an aisle across traffic, and your first thought is, “I should turn on my blinker.”

Want to hear someone really play the ukulele? Go here.

It’s been a week today since the surgery. She is making progress, but it’s slow. Or at least it seems that way. Her most requested food right now is bacon and scrambled eggs.

We lost power last night around 1:30 a.m. Don’t know what the problem was, but they said it affected 1600 customers.

So tired. But I have a list of errands to run. And then more housecleaning to do.  I need to rent a bulldozer for that. My knees are killing me.

I was just watching the video I posted about the couple who kept finding water on the pool deck and and furniture, and had to set up their camcorder to figure out why. Looks to me like their first clue should have been the wet dog

Last week Myanmar (Burma) had a cyclone that wiped out thousands of people. It’s possible that 100,000 people could be dead and 220,000 are reported to be missing.

Now China has had a massive earthquake.

Asia isn’t doing very well right now.

Gospel singer Dottie Joyce Rambo dies

MOUNT VERNON, Mo. — Gospel singer-songwriter Joyce “Dottie” Rambo died early Sunday when the bus she was in ran off a road in southwest Missouri and struck an embankment.

Rambo, 74, of Nashville, Tenn., died in the crash about two miles east of Mount Vernon on Interstate 44, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. Seven other people in the bus were injured, and were hospitalized in Springfield with moderate to severe injuries, the patrol said.

It was unclear if the accident, which occurred about 2 a.m., was weather-related, the patrol said. Severe storms and tornadoes hit the region about 6 p.m. Saturday, killing 14 people. Sustained winds and storms swept through the area later in the night, according to the National Weather Service.

“She was a giant in the gospel music industry,” said Beckie Simmons, Rambo’s agent. “Dolly Parton recorded some of her songs.”

Parton sent condolences to “everyone involved in this terrible tragedy.”

“I know Dottie is in heaven in the arms of God right now, but our earth angel will surely be missed,” Parton said in a statement. “Dottie was a dear friend, a fellow singer, songwriter and entertainer, and as of late my duet singing partner.”

Rambo was on her way to a Mother’s Day performance in North Richland Hills, Texas, according to her Web site.

Rambo was inducted to the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2006 and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007.

Rambo has had more than 2,500 published songs, including gospel classics such as “He Looked Beyond My Fault and Saw My Need” and the 1982 Gospel Music Association Song of the Year, “We Shall Behold Him.”

  1. Asia isn’t doing very well right now.For real. All that on top of a history of Mongol invaders, two nuclear bombs, monsoons, French occupation, war with the United States, communism, the Taliban, British Imperialism, and the caste system. On the plus side, Chinese restaurants usually have pretty good shrimp. :ROTFL:

  2. 😆 That is tired! 😆
    One of the first solos I did as an adult was “All Day Dinner.”  Dottie was awesome.  I bet my mom will be singing with her pretty soon – her and Vestal Goodman, too!:love:
    Myanmar and China.  That China earthquake will be very deadly.  The only province reporting was one on the outskirts of only one of the most populated areas hit.
    Oh – and you were sleepy at 2:30 this afternoon?!  So was I!:ROTFL:

  3. Thank you for posting about Dottie – I did not know that she passed away. That’s sad that it had to be a bus accident! Wow! Dottie was great to the end …. faithfully serving her Lord & Saviour. We’ll see her someday – up close and personal. :heartbeat:

  4. @RaZeHeLL – I was surprised. You don’t expect to hear things like that. But I know it was the time God had planned for her to come home. He would not have allowed this to happen to her, if it had not been ok with Him.
