58 300SL ROADSTER Silver Blue/Burgandy, Black soft top And it comes with matching luggage . . . Please let this be a mistake . . . I can’t think of any car being worth this amount of money. A nice knock-off would be okay, though. An extra thought: Yes, yes, I see there are a […]

Saying so long to the little green car – 1976 MB 300D

April 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Well, I went down to Vorderman’s to pay for the last bit of work on the little green car before they discovered the brakes would require more money than I could justify spending on what my husband called “little greenie”. They are checking to see if someone wants it for parts . . . or […]

Solo straws are suckable

April 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Is the Solo Company still making straws for sale in grocery stores? I haven’t seen then at Wal-Mart or Kroger’s lately. I have had to buy a different brand for a few months now and my family and I have decided these other straws are “sucky” – yes, they suck at sucking. You can do […]

Two new friends –

April 29th, 2008 · No Comments

I went into Rural King and they were having a special on little animals, so we figured we needed a couple more. Here’s a little buffalo and a little black bear – I couldn’t justify the expense of the big ones – so we have Little Buff and Little Bear, or, for those in the […]

fortnights

April 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

How many times have you heard someone say, “I’ll see you in a fortnight.” Probably not too often, maybe not at all. I want to revive it; I want to have people use it again; I want to say it myself, often and with ease. I want it to just fall off of people’s tongues. […]

I’m an oddly shaped peg

April 29th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I suppose a lot of people are born not fitting into the holes the world issues very well. Some do a good job of whittling themselves to fit; others carve out the hole to fit them. I think for the most part I have just chosen holes in Jello that stretch this way and that […]

Bed bugs and the dog hero

April 29th, 2008 · No Comments

Bed bugs = high CF (Creep Factor) Dog =  high WCF (Warm, Cuddly Feelings) Aha! Read this story Garfield. Just like Lassie barking to save Timmy from the well, Radar is saving people from what first got attention as the scourge of New York Hotels a couple of years ago – Bed Bugs. Smaller than […]

two early morning fires

April 29th, 2008 · No Comments

A definite chill in the air this morning and we have a fire in the den and that means warm and toasty feet and the comforting smell of wood smoke – not so much inside but out by the door when you come in from taking her nibs to school. I decided to bite the […]

To watch TV or not?

April 28th, 2008 · No Comments

About 20 minutes until prime time and I don’t know what I want to do: hunker  down with a book, grab a puzzle, get down on the floor and do some sit-ups, surf the Internet for interesting places, stick a DVD in the machine or make myself throw away one bag of annoying knick-knacks. Did […]

This is for Quentin

April 28th, 2008 · No Comments

Thinking of the Shakespeare rewriting led me to recall the days I would find Henry V in the in the VCR, set to the St. Crispin’s Day Speech. I liked that speech too, a lot.
