Chapter 4, Page 10, Book 09

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head,
they keep fallin'
So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head,
they keep fallin'
But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me'
Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me
words by Hal David, music by Burt Bacharach lyrics as recorded by B.J. Thomas (#1 for 4 weeks in 1970)


We are supposed to have rain today so I’ll go to the camper tomorrow morning. We are supposed to have sunny skies and temps in the middle 40’s for the weekend. This will be my last entry til Monday morning. I will take lots of pictures for you all to see and if time permits I’ll get them on the side bar of this journal by Sunday evening.

The good Lord willing, and the creek don’t rise, I’ll be in my little place in the woods which is pretty close to being a little bit of heaven.

‘On Ya’-ma


Stop complaining and start living!

First you have to come to terms with yourself. Tell yourself what it is you complain most about and realize that not only is it bad for others it is really bad for you and for your health

Recognize when you are complaining. The truth of the matter is that most of us don't even realize when we are complaining

Make a list and memorize it of happy times and thoughts and all the good things in your life, like family or friends, or even a pizza place you like! Think about these wonderful lovely things. No matter how bad your life may be, we all get sunshine some days! If nothing else think of that, or puppies or childrens' laughter, whatever it takes

When you feel yourself about to complain, stop, take a deep breath and think about how lucky you are to be alive on this great planet. We are so blessed in this life, just to have breath. Think on that for awhile. It works for me and hopefully it will work for you
