After MJ's death a old police interview of one of his child victims was shown on TV. (one the jury deemed not convincing back during the trail) The child seemed vary convincing to me!
I believe the child!
Tapes shown of the search done at MJ's house reveled a deeply troubled man. Someone very different than seen on stage. His house was full of stuff strewn around in a creepy fashion. I would hardly call it homey.
Though he was a man who made his own choices to do what he did, I feel for him. He was a child star that I'm not sure was parented and nurtured very well by those closest to him.
He had many enablers in his adult life when it came to his drugs and plastic surgeries!
The people nearest him were greedy and in many ways helped MJ self destruct!
As a child I don't think he ever knew if people liked him for who he was or just liked him because he was famous. I feel he was deeply depressed and felt isolated. He made very poor choices over and over again off stage......crying out for attention.
Though I morned the pasting of a great entertainer and song writer I know God took him for a reason! God knows the plan and what is best!
Though I don't always agree with the choices people make......
I am a lover not a hater!
Micheal Jackson 1958-2009
I will miss you Micheal......you were a Awesome entertainer and brought JOY to my life through your songs and dancing!
I'm sorry you had such a painful life and issues that I'm not sure you ever over came!
You were LOVED!
Thank you for your music.......I will miss you!
My prayers and condolences go out to the Jackson family and his children!
Tearfully a fan forever,
After I posted last night I wanted to write more.......
I remember when I was 8yrs old.... roller skating and twirling my baton to the song
Don't Stop Til You Get Enough (over and over again) with my second grade friend Cindy L. at ST Mary's On The Hill (a Catholic grade school in GA)! The 70's were great!
It feels like part of my childhood died today!
I was looking forward to his come back concert!
I feel so old.....Ed Mc Man, Farrah Faucet and Micheal Jackson gone all in one week....WOW!
Time keeps on ticking......it stops for no one!
I'm not a groupie type person but Micheal Jackson's song have been a part of my life since I can remember!
I am truly heart broken!

They each give us about 1 egg everyday!
The kiddos love collecting the eggs and feeding them in the morning and early evening!
Other goings on out in the..........
The Rambling Garden!
Several of my cauliflower plants have crowns growing on them....so it was time to close them up with cloths pins to keep the heads from turning yellow while they finish growing.(staying white)
Another fun surprise has been the asparagus that I found in the garden from the previous home owners! (when we moved here 5 yrs ago I pulled what I thought was weeds from the garden spot....come to find out it was asparagus that had bolted) eeekkkk!
I'm glad I didn't manage to pull it ALL up! I have about 5 plants and have gotten 3 clippings so far!
This is our sweet bunny Polly! Polly put the kettle on we'll all have tea! Chamomile tea!.....yes, my chamomile has sprouted.....I just needed to be patient!
We have been waiting for these daisies to bloom for quit a while now!
Like all good things......they are worth the wait!

This weekend my oldest son Jarrett had baseball both Saturday and Sunday. (2 games each day) So while hubby was with Jarett I decided to take the kids to the zoo....both days! hee hee
The zoo is in the city and sits nestled along the ocean. With its breath taking views and much to do we were so there! The zoo and surrounding area is filled with parks,rose gardens, a five mile drive, a beach and a marina with a ferry dock among other things!
The zoo has fun shows watch and interesting animals to see! We are members so why not do 2x!
We always see wild raccoons on the 5 mile drive! Its totally thrilling!
Noah's favorite animal was the scorpion!
The parakeets that you can feed and have land on your hand was a BIG hit for all of us!
The sharks and the peacock we saw were a good time too!
The peacock did not like Jackie's brightly colored dress! It came at her with his full headdress open and a few hisses! It was very entertaining and she was not at all scared!
I liked walking through the Asian Forest.....it is filled with bamboo and lovely flowers!
We got to listen to a talk and watch a tiger get fed.....that was cool!
I love the elephants!
For a cheap souvenir we were on a mission to collect all the different flattened penny things!
It takes 2 quarters and a penny. The penny gets flattened and stretched and indented with the zoo name and a animal picture on it! There were 3 machines spread thought out the park and each had 3 designs!
There are several of those machines at the wild life park by our house! So we have found our selves a cheap new hobby! So now anytime we go some place we will be armed with quarters and pennies!
After our trip to the zoo we met up with hubby and Jarett for dinner out both nights! Yes! Dinner out two nights in a row in the BIG city!
We went to the Spaghetti Factory the first night and to the Rock Pizza the second night! Yummo!
Now today will be spent recuperating and cleaning house! I must weed the garden, do some laundry....ok a lot of laundry(hee hee), bake bread, and cook a nice dinner!
Pork chops with onions and apples in a cider gravy with mashed potatoes (sweet potatoes are not here now or I would use them) Its a nice FALL dinner and we have had overcast cool and rainy weather for the past few weeks so I was in the mood for it!
My garden is lovin' the weather especially my cabbage and cauliflower!
I will post some pictures of my Rambling Garden tomorrow!
Now I'm off to work and deal with a stray dog the neighbor just dumped in my backyard!

Have a terrific day!

In order to have a Fruitful Harvest one must prune back activities that are dead in ones life and do not bring JOY. (and only keep us busy)
One must pull the weeds and get nourished.
What feeds you?
What do you do with your time?
Do you do things out of obligation?
Did something that once brought joy to your life now feel like a burden?
Life is to short not to prune back schedules and activities that are not bearing fruit!
Are you just busy?

We are finally reaping the rewards of fresh veggies from the garden!
Jackie has enjoyed picking the ripe produce....and running our juicer!
She actually drank 2 glasses of juice made from carrots,celery,apple and beet with the tops! Very healthy!
