COLUMBUS DAY...2009  TODAY IS GOING TO BE ...ANOTHER..'INSIDE DAY!'  IT IS 27 DEGREES...AS I LOOK OUT THE WINDOW, SNOW IS GENTLY FALLING.  I HEARD THAT IT HAS BEEN 24 YEARS SINCE MINNESOTA HAS GOTTEN SNOW..THIS EARLY. 'WHAT HAPPENED TO FALL?  I CAN'T REMEMBER GOING 'TRICK AND TREATING',IN THE SNOW!  OCTOBER 12TH, MAYBE IT WILL WARM UP, SOON?  I HAVE LOTS TO DO TODAY SO I WILL JUST 'RAMBLE' AGAIN. (IF YOU NOTICE...I HAVEN'T SAID. ANYTHING... ABOUT THE TWINS GAME, YESTERDAY.  LET'S REMEMBER THAT TREMENDOUS PLAYOFF GAME, WITH DETROIT, AND THE  EXCITEMENT THAT WE ALL FELT.  (KEEP...GOOD MEMORIES, IN THAT MIND OF YOURS.)  LEARN TO 'DELETE' THOSE NEGATIVE THINGS LIKE SOME OF THOSE 'COSTLY'...MISTAKES, THAT WERE MADE. ('OUCH!!)  IT'S OVER...LET IT GO...FORGET IT.  NOW FOR SOME, THEY WANT TO CONTINUE TO TALK... FOR...DAYS (BRINGING UP THE PAST...WE ALL DO IT!)  YOU HAVE HEARD IT TIME AND TIME AGAIN...'LIVE..IN THE..NOW!'  'YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY DO TWO THINGS AT THE SAME TIME!  FOCUS ON ONE THING...AT A TIME...IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PAST..WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE DONE...WHAT YOU WISHED YOU WOULD HAVE DONE..IF ONLY..(YOU ARE NOT IN THE PRESENT...THE NOW!)  SO....IT IS UP TO YOU...WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.  YOU ARE THE 'PROGRAMMER' OF YOUR OWN..'COMPUTER'...(IT'S YOUR BRAIN/MIND) YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND THOSE WHO WANT TO 'CONTROL' YOU...ALWAYS TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO..BUT...THEY CAN NEVER KNOW ..'WHAT YOU'RE..THINKING!'  I ALWAYS GET SUCH A KICK OUT OF SOMEONE WHO SAYS...'I KNOW WHAT YOUR'E THINKING!  (YOU DO NOT!) OR I WILL HEAR THIS WHEN I AM PLAYING, TENNIS...' I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO PUT IT THERE!' ('HOW ON EARTH WOULD YOU KNOW...I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I WOULD PUT IT THERE!)..WHEN YOU PLAY ON 'AUTOMATIC'...SOMETIMES, I AM EVEN 'AMAZED' WHERE THEY LAND! CHOICES...IT'S UP TO YOU, WHAT YOU KEEP UP THERE! (IF YOU CHOOSE...ANGER..HORRENDOUS EVENTS...VENGEFUL THOUGHTS...GRUDGES..MISSED OPPORTUNITIES..HURTFUL EXPERIENCES..BLAME...SELF-PITY.)  .THESE ARE YOUR 'CHOICES'  AND YOU HAVE A 'PERFECT RIGHT'...TO KEEP WHATEVER YOU WANT UP THERE.  (I CERTAINLY AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT TO CHOOSE...BUT I WILL TELL YOU THIS..'YOU WON'T SEE ME VERY OFTEN!')  CHOOSE...'UPLIFTING..POSITIVE..HUMOROUS ... HONEST...THOUGHTFUL FRIENDS. (YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT...AND I'LL DO WHAT I  WANT!)  I WILL TELL YOU THIS..THOUGH.  'IT IS NOT HEALTHY FOR YOU TO KEEP ALL THAT 'STUFF' UP THERE!'  I WILL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE:  I CAN'T TELL YOU TOO MUCH OF WHAT I LEARNED IN COLLEGE.(MAINLY BECAUSE I DON'T REMEMBER, MUCH.)  THESE TWO THINGS... I REMEMBER FROM PSYCHOLOGY CLASS:  WE TOURED THE ST. CLOUD REFORMATORY.  I WAS AMAZED AT ALL THE YOUNG MEN THAT WERE THERE.  WONDERING, WHAT HAD THEY DONE?...WHAT MISTAKE DID THEY MAKE?  HOW DID THEY GET CAUGHT?  (WE HAVE ALL MADE 'STUPID' MISTAKES..SOME OF US, MIGHT EVEN SAY...'BOY...LUCKY I WASN'T CAUGHT, OR I WOULD BE IN PRISON RIGHT NOW!'..SOME MEN...LIKE TO 'BRAG' ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS THEY HAVE DONE..ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO...ALL THEIR 'CONQUESTS.'....UNTIL...THEY GET 'CAUGHT!')  IT'S 'FUN AND GAMES,' BEFORE ...BUT NOW....'OH, MY!'...I OFTEN WONDER...HMMM. 'HAD THEY NOT BEEN CAUGHT....(RED-HANDED...'HANDS IN THE COOKIE JAR,')...WOULD THEY HAVE..CONTINUED?..HMMMM..'I WONDER.'  ISN'T IT FUNNY HOW WE ALL LIKE TO HEAR AND TALK ABOUT THIS..(WHEN WE, TOO...MAYBE...MIGHT BE DOING...THE SAME THING?)  SO WE KNOW OF A GOVERNOR..SENATORS..AND NOW, LETTERMAN.(THIS IS ESPECIALLY A MESS, IN THIS CASE, BECAUSE TIME AND TIME AGAIN HIS WHOLE MONOLOGUE HAS INCLUDED MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE...THE EXACT, SAME THING!)...BACK-PEDDLING..SO SORRY...'I MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE!'....'COVER FOR YOUR FRIENDS...DON'T TELL ANYONE.' 
MAYBE, WHEN YOUR...'MARRIED'' FRIEND JUST CAN'T WAIT TO TELL YOU ABOUT WHAT HE/SHE IS DOING, YOU HAVE SEVERAL..OPTIONS:  YOU CAN SAY..1. 'I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT!'.  2..'WHY DON'T YOU JUST GROW UP, WE'RE NOT IN HIGH SCHOOL, ANYMORE!'..3.' YOU SURELY ARE NOT VERY RESPONSIBLE!'  4. 'YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, AND YOUR PANTS..ON!'  (AND..REMEMBER THIS WORKS...BOTH WAYS!..I BELIEVE THE APPROPRIATE QUOTE AT THIS TIME..IS:  'WHEN THE CAT'S AWAY.....THE MICE..WILL PLAY."HMMMM
SO....TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF...WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES (LEARN FROM THEM)..DOWNLOAD AND DELETE (JUST LIKE OLD EMAILS ON YOUR COMPUTER) THINGS THAT ARE DEPRESSING TO YOU, MAKE YOU SO ANGRY..BAD THINGS THAT YOU 'EITHER DID...SAID..REGRET.  IT IS EXTREMELY UNHEALTHY FOR YOUR BODY!!!  AND NOW I FINALLY GET TO THE OTHER THING I LEARNED IN PSYCHOLOGY CLASS.  IT IS STILL 'VIVID'...IN MY MIND:  WE SAW A MOVIE...AN OLDER MAN...MAYBE IN HIS 60'S/70's WAS LYING DOWN, GETTING READY TO EAT.  HE HAD TO BE FED WITH A FUNNEL, THAT WENT DIRECTLY TO HIS STOMACH.  WHEN HE WAS VERY YOUNG, HE HAD FOUND.. LYE..AND HE HAD SWOLLOWED SOME, AND IT COMPLETELY DISTROYED HIS ABILITY TO SWALLOW.  SO..HERE IS THIS FUNNEL, AND BEFORE HE WAS FED, HE WAS ASKED SOME QUESTIONS.  THEY TALKED ABOUT SOME FUN THINGS...BUT THEN THEY ASKED SOMETHING ABOUT AN EVENT THAT HAD HAPPENED, YEARS AGO, THAT HE STILL WAS SO ANGRY ABOUT.  SURPRISING ALL OF US...OUT OF THIS FUNNEL.. BUBBLES, CAME..( LIKE YOU WOULD BLOW AS A YOUNG CHILD!)  THE MORE UPSET HE BECAME...THE MORE BUBBLES.  THEN THEY GOT OFF THIS SUBJECT AND ON TO SOMETHING.. MORE PLEASING...AND ALL THE BUBBLES...DISAPPEARED.  I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST..AMAZING.  THE STOMACH ACIDS... WERE IN THOSE BUBBLES. TRY TO CALM DOWN...DON'T LET SO MANY THINGS 'UPSET' YOU..SOME PEOPLE CAN REACT THIS WAY IF YOU JUST MENTION A CERTAIN NAME.  I'VE SEEN IT.  MY GRANDMA SCHON ...RAISING HER FAMILY ON A FARM..WAS A DEDICATED..' DEMOCRAT.'  SHE READ AND READ AND KNEW HER POLITICS.  EVEN BEFORE NIXON BECAME PRESIDENT OR HUBERT HUMPHREY (MN) BECAME VICE-PRESIDENT..I REMEMBER HER SAYING..TRICKY NIXON..SHE DIDN'T LIKE HIM..ALL THOSE THINGS HE DID. SHE LOVED HUBERT H HUMPHREY..YOU COULD TRUST HIM..SHE WOULD SAY...'I JUST WANT TO LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO SEE HUBERT HUMPHREY, PRESIDENT.'  WELL, ROY...A NEIGHBOR...WOULD SAY SOMETHING...PURPOSELY UPSETTING HER ABOUT NIXON OR HUMPHREY..AND 'OFF' SHE WOULD GO...HE WOULD LAUGH...AND SHE WOULD GET ON HER 'SOAPBOX.'.AND 'SET HIM STRAIGHT!  (SO ...IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE IS VERY 'SENSITIVE' ABOUT SOMETHING...FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE...DON'T BRING IT UP!  NOW YOU KNOW..WHAT IS GOING ON..INSIDE!...LOTS TO DO SO I WON'T BE WRITING THIS MUCH...BLOOD TEST..BONE DENSITY TEST..TOMORROW...THURSDAY, NISSWA WOMEN AT THE LEGION CLUB IN NISSWA..SATURDAY..FALL SALE (17TH) AT THE LEGION CLUB IN NISSWA...AND THEN...MY PHYSICAL!!  BETTER GET ORGANIZED!..IT'S SNOWING..AGAIN.  CE
