Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

I have the greatest friends.  And I’m not just saying that because they give me stuff.  Well, I’m sort of saying it because they give me stuff.  I mean, how can you not be excited to get Blue Ribbon Oatmeal Cookies and a deer roast – yes, a DEER roast, and du meine Güte, was it exquisite! And that surprised me because I wasn’t particularly expecting to like it.  Deer roast is now my family’s favorite meat. And then today, my other friend (who seriously has to be the most generous person I’ve ever met) anyways, her son presented my son with an extraordinarily fine brand new fishing pole, complete with a tackle box full of lures.  It is not my son’s birthday, nor any other special sort of day, but apparently he inherited his family’s generosity gene because he spent half of his entire savings to buy Bo this gift – simply because they are best friends and he wanted him to have a good pole when they were fishing together.  Talk about heart warming.  I love that kid, and Bobo was just astonished to receive such a gift out of the clear blue.  Even though it was raining when we got home, he stayed outside for hours learning how to cast it.  Many thanks, young master Joshua, what a fine fellow you are.


Here’s Bo pictured with his gift.  And see that little black patch to his left?  That’s duct tape from when our screen ripped.  Aren’t you glad to know that?  You would have never even noticed had I not been such a thoughtful docent.



 and early the next morning:

In other news, my whole family received another gift. A rather unwelcome one.  We all have poison ivy.  Thankfully it is not as severe as the Great Poison Ivy Plague of 05.. I’m telling you, it does not always pay to be economical.  I’m pretty sure we contracted it from our clothes and sheets, which we had hung out on the line. BUT, I think I’ve discovered a remedy.  The other day Coie made a quart of colloidal silver as a gift for her dad, who is quite ill, and I got the grand idea to splash some on my poor tore up red blistery itchy skin.  And I daresay it was much improved by morning.  Colloidal Silver is our family’s cure all for nearly anything and everything. We used to spend a fortune buying it from natural health food stores, and it’s like a billion dollars for 8 oz of the stuff.  I think we paid $30 last year for the Colloidal Silver making kit and I know for positively certain we’ve made that money back tenfold.  So that’s my tip for the day.  Go make some Colloidal Silver.


Ok, almost lastly, I’m reading Agnes Grey by Whats-her-face Bronte. Coie told me it was excellent but I didn’t believe her.  But she was right, and it is one funny book.  I’m telling you, one of these days I am going to put together an 1800’s literature library.  Marshie’s going to run it with me (right Marshie? Books, Bok Choy & Bulgogi ). I cannot tell you how obsessed I’m becoming with that era.  Authors today just cannot compete.  Plus I learned a new word that I really like and have been trying to use in a sentence (without success / lack of opportunity).  The word? Loquacious.  Ah! Ryann and Emmiko are gifted with loquacity and can be loquacious at any given time regarding any given subject.  There. I did it.  Boy do I feel scholarish.   


Lastly last, oh never mind. This is already too long, I’ll just tell you next time I blog.

    You betcha! <i>Books, Bok Choy, Bulgogi and Breve</i>. Why breve? Because my sweet hubby got me a <i>superautomatic</i> espresso machine. Seriously, you push a button and out comes the espresso. Mmmm… not that I really need coffee to be any easier. I would call myself a barista now but it would make me sound like a fallen woman or something… even though that's not what it means… but it sounds like it, huh?

    Oh and regarding the poison ivy, I kid you not Jenefer de Igarashi– EAT a couple of leaves. Of course, this is best done in spring when the leaves are small and tender, but try it anyway. Roll it and swallow it. It is supposed to help or keep poison ivy away for a year (or more for some people).

    No, I have not tried it myself, but a friend of mine's son gets really sick and itchy just being in the vicinity of poison ivy. This year, she made him eat a couple of leaves and now he has ZERO problems with it.

    How bad could it be? It sounds much better than colloidial silver doesn't it? Don't you make earrings out of that?

    Okay, I think I've taken up enough of your comment space for now.



    PS Bo is very blessed to have such a thoughtful and kind friend!

    My husband would be very excited to meet a whole family who thinks as highly of Colloidal Silver as he does! (And makes their own.)

    if i suddenly pop up dead… you all now know who to point to. Marsha, you mustn't try and do me in before the Grand Opening of our fabulous store. And most definitely yes, bring that latte maker. And yes, a barista sounds *quite* scandalous.

    Rebeca: yay! another Colloidal Silver devotee. I am *so* happy to hear it! Let's start a Colloidal Silver Commune Compound.

    Enjoy those new goodies!

    We were blessed today as well. The heat and air people that replaced our unit (thanks to our insurance paying because it was struck by lightning)…waived the $250 deductible. So our new unit is completely paid for!! Praise the LORD!!

    Our neighbor came over bearing gifts for the children. She had stopped at a yard sale and bought shoes and toys.

    A friend called and asked I pop over to her house (just 5 miles away) and pick up a box of treats …. bagels, loaves of potato bread, two bags of self-rising flour, doughnuts, and two pies… all from a friend of hers who gets it when the stores are ready to reduce them.

    What a blessed day!

    What a fun post to read. That is a very nice fishing pole. Sorry about the poison ivy, but I'm glad it's not a bad case of it. 🙂

    How cool to receive those great gifts. Your son looks thrilled with the fish he caught. What is colloidol silver (not sure if it's spelled correctly)? Where do you get a kit to make it and how do you take it. I have never heard of it.

    Sounds like you just may have too much. So out of the kindness of my heart, I'm willing to take your overflow! =P
