Shopping cart is tag ready

We'll see how true that is!  I worked on it this morning after a few glitches and it seems fine now.   Continue to let me know if it isn't working properly so I can throw a fit.  I've been wanting to scream since Wednesday's accident and need another excuse.  The 82 year old that hit me has no one, and I couldn't scream at him.  He seemed so lost and afraid.  The police had to take him home with his walker because there was no one to call, and he was afraid to go to a hospital.  Turns out he is a friend's daughter's neighbor whose sister took care of him and she passed away 6 months ago.  He will certainly have his license revoked (and should) and his car is totaled too.  How will he get his necessities and meals?  It's obvious he is not well.  I asked DeAnn to please tell her daughter to call Social Services to come visit him.  He really needs some help.  As for the teen thugs that beat the 89 year old WWII veteran to death for fun, they need to be taken off this earth along with anyone else like them. Can you imagine how frightened and defenseless he felt?   Oh wait - the national news didn't want to mention it. They feel the thugs are victims of society and we should forgive them.  If I hear that crap one more time, my scream will be heard across the states.   I wonder if they would feel the same if it was their father that was alone and beaten, or their daughter was the rape victim that had Clorox poured down her throat to kill the DNA and then left to die in a garbage bag, or their son was shot in the back for no reason while jogging.  Whether the cart works or not, there's no stopping the scream now.  Sorry. This is a stitching blog and only menopausal rants should be inserted now and then.  Technically, this may be.  My emotions are wild, my head is pounding, I want to scream or rip a wall down, I'm soaking wet, tears explode and then fade.............I'm claiming menomadness as the reason for posting this rant instead of hitting delete.  Begging your forgiveness but sometimes it helps to take it out on the computer.

Did that help...I am with you on those things...some people should not be allowed take another breath...they are useless thugs.

Rant away ~ I'm screaming with you on those things!

Karen said...

I have to agree with what society is doing to those that persecute and torment and hurt others...they are left alone.
Know that if you all feel the earth rumble it's all of us frustrated and (we feel like) helpless people SCREAMING. You aren't alone Marly.
Glad you are okay though and I just can't imagine how that gentleman is going to feel when all he has left of freedom is taken away from him. But he certainly does need someone to look in on him and take care of him.

Blessings,
Karen

Always enjoy reading about your creative works and health issues. I'm wondering if you could post how you dried your beans. I strung some yesterday and now have them in my garage. Last year when I did them they just ended up rotting. Thanks ahead for any help w/this project.

My screams will join your screams and perhaps maybe, in our remaining lifetime, we may start to see some justice meted out when it comes to these absolute wastes of skin and oxygen. Unfortunately, pure evil exists in this world and we are subsidizing it each and every day with our tax dollars. Great system.

Lida said...

Oh how terrible the world has become, shame on them who take it out on the defenseless and the wakest.
Your screem is heart all over the world and we do agree, this is unhuman behaviour and should be known to all decent people!
Wish you strenght from the bottom of my menomadness filled heart!
Hugs

somebody needs to rant

Karen said...

We can scream in unison.

Rugs and Pugs said...

Rant all you want because what you said is sadly true. Why isn't mainstream media screaming about this and demanding justice???
Hugs :)

Maureen said...

Maybe if we all do some screaming we can restore human behavior to the level it should be.
Hugs to you Marly and your readers.

Go ahead and vent! You'll feel worse if you don't. I feel like we're quickly siding down a slippery slope and it isn't looking good for things to change. I fear for my grand kids!

I concur with all of you. It is so frightening how what is wrong is now being excused for whatever happen to them.
I grew up so poor in N. C. And this continued for quite awhile. But my parents taught me values-- I did not take what someone else had whether it was a gift to them or they worked to buy it. I learned to get a job and stay with it until I got another. My husband sent me to college and paid ever penny as he also did for 3 kids. We were not rich--he was a firefighter and i Became a teacher. Values are not taught today. My friend here n N.C, just had to paint her own room as did all the teachers-- they were provided toe paint but no equipment. They all just did what was asked of them. Other young people refuse to do anything "beneath" them. May God have mercy on those of us who trust in Him.

PS. I ordered 4 tags but I do not care which 4 or rings or not. I put me favorites but in context of the news I am just thankful I am alive So let me be the one that is okay no matter how my order ends up. It was simple, by the way. Write numbers n the little text box. Change number of items from 1 to 4 -- in my case anyway. And in text write cords or rings.

I totally agree with you! You posted the thoughts a lot of us are having.

Amen sister!

Ah hun, please know you aren't alone in this menopausal hell...I'm either in a crying pool or in a rage where I could go postal at any moment..lol Not to mention feeling like I'm on fire from the inside out. And how this poor world is turning it's unreal; I say and eye for an eye, they should let the families of these poor victims be the judge, jury.

Hugs, Shar

My dad is a WWII veteran - Normandy and Bulge - also 89. I would find them and reverse the message! Then I would end up in jail for the rest of my life!

cucki said...

I agree with you too :)

I totally agree with you, Marly, about the thugs who are roaming the streets because "they are bored" and killing innocent people.
I feel badly for the old gentleman who has no one to care for him. It's a terrible feeling when one is sick, frightened and alone.
I've always said when the day comes that I can't drive anymore, someone might as well shoot me.
You sure have had a year of misfortunes. You, with your kind heart, don't deserve what you've been through.
Wishing better times for you.

I came back today to add this. I subscribe to a daily inspirational message in my emails. Somedays it really makes me stop and think! Anyway I thought this one was a good one to go along with how many of us seem to be feeling:
You came to me discouraged and began telling me about the problems in the world. Then, in the midst of our conversation you asked me, "Do you think the world will ever change?" I replied, "The world will certainly change. The question is, will it change for the better or for the worse? The world will change if you and I keep changing. While you and I keep changing for the worse, the world will change for the worse. But, when you and I start changing for the better, the world will change for the better.

I understand and agree ... screaming and ranting are good for releasing frustration and stress. That's not enough. We must ACT in a positive way.

Peace and Blessings to all.

I am having a hot flush just trying to comment do you think being menopausal affects computers. Sorry you are feeling so low hope the vent helped.

I agree with everything you said - and it was well said!! Don't understand why so many good people have terrible things happen to them and the bad/evil ones get away with it. Abuse excuse makes me sick. Growing up with that in your home teaches you NOT to be that way!

Bertie said...

Wow Marly you got this of your chest alright! I so agree with you, it's heartbreaking to read your story!
I hope the 82 year old man will be looked after, your so humble to speak kindly of him after the crash.
Fingers xx the car will be fixed and you!!

I love it when someone besides me says out loud what others are thinking but are too PC or lazy to say! You go girl. You are a loving, level-headed, articulate woman. And I LOVE the box/drawers! It's all about beautiful storage.
