Random entrance to a church...don't think I have posted it before.  It is in Marshall, Illinois.
1.  I had a hard time going to sleep, but when I did I slept hard.  Jumped awake at 8:20 thinking it was Saturday.  Really a bad way to start the day.  Took about 10-20 minutes before I realized it is Friday.  I was upset that I had slept that late, thinking it Saturday and knowing son-in-law is going to bring some of Lorelei's toys to store here for a while and I expected him to be sort of early.

2.  Hung out a load of clothes...they had time to hang about an hour before someone, somewhere was burning something stinky.  It smelled like plastic.  I hurried and took them down and threw in the dryer.  Only took about 25 minutes to be completely dry.  It was a fairly big load.

3.  I have been throwing away colored pages and other paperwork I no longer need.  I rearranged some of my storage totes in the basement to make room for more stuff from Lorelei's home. 

4.  They will be moving sometime in the near future....more about that later.  It is a good thing, though!

5.  Roger is going back to the doctor this afternoon...still coughing.  So say a prayer that either he gets the right medicine or that he gets sent to a new doctor.  He has had a cough forever, but it changed a while back.  Then he got the cold on top of it.  Now, I don't know if it is the cold/asthmatic bronchitis or if it is just his cough.

I leave you with a someone everyone knows.  In fact, I doubt anyone has ever heard of her, but listen/read the words to the song.   I think I have featured another of her songs, but not this one.

Edited to add:  Just checked...I have shared this video before...sorry!

How about:

Tim Grimm is from Indiana...he writes some wonderful songs.

I dislike when someone is burning something that smells so bad. Glad you got your clothes in off the line. That smoke is not good for Roger's cough either. Praying that he gets the answers he needs at the dr. today.
Thankful that there is good news re Lorelei's family's move.
Please let us hear how Roger gets along. Take care, Rose.

Hoping that Roger finds that it's nothing serious. I can imagine that a long lasting cough would be very uncomfortable and worrisome. Sounds like you're doing what I should be doing right now...but here I sit.

Enjoyed reading your Friday Five Rose. I hope Roger's cough goes away soon. I had a respiratory/cough that seemed to go on forever last year, and I certainly hope he gets rid of it soon. The church piture was lovely. Enjoyed the videos very much.

Tim Grimm rather reminds me of John Prine; I like! Fingers are crossed for Roger, hope he gets (good) answers today... and now I'm tired just from reading all you've accomplished!

Enjoyed the photo of the church entrance. Hope Roger recovers from his cough very soon! Glad you were able to get the laundry done so efficiently and quickly.
