There's So Many Ones in this date (1.11.2014) that I wanted to be One of the first Ones to Wish you all a Good One!

Michael (bushambo) asked on a Previous Thread if I, Davey Do, was any Relation to Dr. Doolittle. And, as Fate would have it, I am!

You see, Dr. Doolittle's Name is actually a combination of his Parents' Names: "Do", on his Father's Side, Plus "O Little", an Irish Family on his Mother's Side, Equaled "Doolittle".

The O Littles, on Dr. Doolittle's Mother's Side, founded several Small Cities in Pennsylvania and called each Area "Bethlehem".

The Small Cities became known as the "O Little Towns of Bethlehem".

That One was a quite a Stretch, wasn't it?

I came up with That One as I Bicycled this Past Morning, and considered Michael's Question.

It was Good One for me.

And I Hope this One is a Good One for you!

Good Morning Davey and all who pop in,

 

Thanks for kicking us off this morning Davey, I am amazed the things you think of while on your bike. LOL

 

Sodden day here, rained all yesterday but we are in for a deluge today although it will be very mild with temps in the 60's which will be like a summers day for us. Goodness me I see lightening outside now this is crazy.

 

Stephanie I hope you got a reprieve from your stinky back ache, nothing worse that pain is there? Praying it has settled when you wake up.

 

Well I managed to work yesterday although tired I did get through the day. Saw 5 patients had a nice time catching up with them. One patient who calls me 'shorty' burst into tears stating 'I'm so happy to see you are back I have missed you', now that warmed my heart and made me a little teary too. God love these patients who rely on you so much.

 

Came home early and worked a little on some phone calls and a little paper shuffle but other than that I was done by 5P and ready to crash.

 

Very thankful I had supper all prepared, got my house in order, cleaned etc and for today the plan is relaxation, other than a little ironing I do no plan on much else at all. Have plenty of cooked food in the freezer so we can pull out something to eat.

 

Hope you all have a most excellent day whether at work or at play.

 

So far I try to make the most of each day, not worry about tomorrow but do something memorable each day is my goal for myself.

 

Much love I send to you all.

Good Morning -

Davey Do's post reminded me about this song.

"One" by Three Dogg Night

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

Two can be as bad as one

It's the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you'll ever know

Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know

'Cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

One is the loneliest number, whoa-oh, worse than two

It's just no good anymore since you went away

Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

One is the loneliest number

One is the loneliest number

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

One is the loneliest

One is the loneliest

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

It's just no good anymore since you went away (number)

One is the loneliest (number)

One is the loneliest (number)

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do (number)

One is the loneliest (number)

One is the loneliest (number)

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do (number)

One (one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do)(number)

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do (number)

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

It's my understanding that the rock group, Three Dog Night, wrote lyrics that ultimately had no real meaning. Rather, they focused on the rhyming scheme instead. To me, it really doesn't matter. Their songs are all good.

Just spoke to Amy. She's getting ready to go to the beach again. Apparently the weather is beautiful there. Here? it's overcast and raining. Yea!

I'm about to go out and visit with some friends that I haven't seen in ages. It's a two-hour drive to where I'm meeting them. It's a two-hour drive for them as well. We're meeting in the middle so that neither of us have to drive four long hours. I'm selling my standard definition video-camera. The guy who I'm selling it to still shoots in standard definition. He has quite the interesting hobby and quite the niche market for his videos. All of his video-taping is about railroads. He's probably produced about a couple dozen DVDs throughout recent years. For those interested in the history of rail road, this guy is full of information. He does a really great job translating into DVDs his knowledge of the history of rail roads for various regions of the northeast. He actually used some of my music as "film scores" for a couple of his DVDs which is pretty cool. So I'm meeting him and his wife for lunch and some friendly chat. I actually knew his wife longer than him. Knew her since high school. (Actually, I used to date her a long, long time ago. LOL!) It was a pleasure playing keyboard at their wedding. Amy sang for their wedding as well.

Well. . . got to get going. Will probably check back later to see how all is doing. Dave-Do, you're number One! :)

Cheers! :)

Ted

It's a rainy day here, too, with temps in the 50s. I'll take it over the frigid cold we've been having. Not much planned for today. I finally joined the 21st century and got an iphone yesterday. I'll have to take it to the store today to get all my stuff transferred from my old phone. I'm sure my kids can teach me how to use it.

That's all from my soggy neck of the woods. Hope all are well and enjoy your Saturday.

Morning Davey Sabby Ted BC

Late start to today, but nothing really going on. Got a package to pick up, going to see my dad, and do some cooking. Was supposed to meet a friend tomorrow but his schedule changed and we're doing that later this month.

Work was OK, not too much stress or too frustrating. Staying calmer. Also found something helpful, lubricant eye drops. An ophthalmologist recommended them to me years ago when I was doing a lot of computer work. Started using them again, and my eyes feel better and the headaches are easing. Called that insurance company back, no answer but I left them a message indicating I was interested in the position.

Has turned quite a bit warmer recently, lots of rain on the way home yesterday, hope my boots are dried out

Speaking of Numbers and Rock Stars, Ted, the Late Great Billy Preston exhibited quite an Affinity for Lyrics and Math with his Hit, "Nothing from Nothing (Leaves Nothing)".

Ah, the Power of Adding or Subtracting Zero!

And who can forget that Great Song by the Algebraics, "Multiplying by One"?

The List is Endless.

Sort of like Pi.

OK, Ted. Now guess what song is rattling around my poor brain? That on top of Davey's mind blowing biking thoughts, and I am sitting here with the knowledge that I have too many "drawers" in my brain. One little thought drags out a whole drawer filled with things I forgot I knew, and some I wished I never knew.

Well good day to all. We are also in the 50s here. Lots of fog. I have not looked at the river today, but yesterday they were still breaking up ice near Trenton so perhaps we have some still flowing past. They were worried about ice dams causing problems, and they did up river.

Joe, glad you got the eye stuff. It has made my life so much better. Sabby, glad you will be able to take it easy today. I really have to clean house. Last night one of my neighbors stopped by, and I was embarrassed at how messy the place has gotten while I focused on so many other things. I have been fighting this cold for weeks. I still would like to get a job, some of the grief has moved to a different spot, and is attacking quite heartily.

In general things are OK. I need to order transcripts. The ones I have are so old that I am not sure which are originals, and I need originals for one job. The rest of my weekend is planned. Turn on classic rock and clean house!

have a wonderful day. Thinking about all those people who have no water. At least there is a great deal of help heading that way.

Clear, sunny, warm here . .I've got the air conditioning on too cool off this stuffy room.

Boys are gone to baseball camp and I'm getting ready to go see a good friend here in Sac. My brother still won't text me back about my mom and I know it is because he doesn't want me to see her - it is a power trip thing. I have no idea where she is.

So, I'll go vent with my friend and maybe take a walk in this lovely weather. My back still hurts but mostly when I'm laying down or sitting down.

I've got that song in my head now too Ted although you are driving now and can't read this.

One isn't the loneliest number by the way. Sometimes it is a good number. One can equal peace and quiet!!

I like to clean house listening to a Boxcar Willie cassette.

Link for Daveydo:

 

 

PS: My tape doesn't have stories like the video. I like my tape better.

The beat is fast and i can sing and clean.

Hi all,

I'm asking for some special prayers for a family in my town. Their 17 year old son died last night from complications of Progeria. He was a friend of my DD, and was beloved in my town. Both of his parents worked tirelessly to find a treatment for this disease, and Sam lived longer and better than expected because of his parents' work and love.

Thanks.
