A few more.

So here are a few pictures after they pulled all the old insulation out.  The shinny is the old metal outer wall that the siding was put over.   The part of the floor that is out in the corner shows a leaking pipe, but they aren’t sure they did not cause that with the work.  Either way it has to be fixed.   Heck.   Hugs

More destruction pictures.

Old 2X4 eaten away by termites.  The termites are long gone as are the prior owners.   

Dealing with destruction. I need a xanax!

Just a quick note of what I am dealing with at home.   We have been having major deconstruction – quick construction because we bought all new kitchen appliances.   We were slowly removing and renovating the kitchen.  We have done the rest of the home.  We have had to gut the house , so we were taking our time to repair it.  I have lots of pictures to do a few posts with.   However last week was spent tearing out the old door and wall and putting a new much larger door in .  Needed to get the new appliances in side.   This morning we tried to find spots for the rest of the stuff in cupboards as we started to remove the final cabinets.    Turns out the floor underneath had gone out ( we suspected that ) and the wall the upper cupboards were on had no support and needed to be replaced.  We suspected it as we found damage when we took out the door and the wall the sink was on we had to rebuild entirely back in 2007.    What a disaster his project is getting to be.   

Here are the pictures of my morning. 

Old kitchen.

Two of our new appliances, the huge new refrigerator and the huge new stove.

Now the morning mess.   I will not have a kitchen for a few days after what the guys found this morning.

I just got informed that the sink and last bit of counter must go also.  So for several days I will have no sink, no counter, no living room ( it is full of everything that could be shoved into it ) .   I will have a toaster oven and a microwave on a rolling cart, but no where to set anything heated in them and nowhere to clean up.  Looks like a few days of pizza and mcdonalds.   Be well.  I am a nervous wreck.   Hugs

A big thank you

Filed under: Family, History, My Life and Rants, News, People I like, Thanks — Scottie @ 19:25

I just want to give everyone who comes to my Toy Box a huge thank you.   I started my blog 8 years ago.  I don’t think I had a plan for it then.    But it grew and matured and so did I.  Today I looked at my 2017 stats.

There was no collusion, you are getting sleepy…….

Well thought out and written. This post says what most of us in the US are thinking and afraid of. Perhaps by contacting our own congress people we can in someway change the situation we find our self in. Hugs

Ends and Beginnings

“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.” – Joseph Goebbels

Seemingly everyday “our” President tweets to his minions something along the lines of his tweet this morning “The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!” Why does he attempt to pound away at this you ask? Well read the quote above and maybe, just maybe you will understand.

For any of you youngsters unfamiliar with Joseph Goebbels, he was Adolf Hitler’s and the Nazi Party’s Minister of Public Enlightenment…

Children’s health in the USA. An important read.

The truth is coming out.

Filed under: Criminal, History, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 17:36

This was an informative article that pointed out several points.  It was common knowledge that Russia was hacking into the US systems, and that they were helping tRump’s team.   The other information was it was openly known about tRump’s mobster connections.   There was mention of the fact that even someone in the tRump campaign contacted the FBI because they were worried about the candidate was being blackmailed.   Also it shows how the republicans and chairman Grassley wanted to keep the testimony secret so they could lie about the dossier and slander the author.    Hugs

My thoughts / rants on end of life.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, opinion, You Tube — Scottie @ 11:29

The third in a three part series I recorded.   This one covers end of life issues.  I talk about the dignity of death,  hospice care, dying.     Hugs

My thoughts on Pro-life, Pro-woman’s rights, quality of life.

Filed under: Children, My Life and Rants, opinion, You Tube — Scottie @ 11:09

If you seen my first video in this series you know I was asked about some of these issues.  I needed to break it down into several videos as they got long.    This video covers my thoughts on abortion, the real meaning of being pro-life, and my support for a woman’s rights to her body, I also cover what is written in the bible about abortion and when life begins.  Hugs
