This worked out

May 31st, 2012 · No Comments

I mowed for six hours straight at the LaGrange house yesterday; well, I was riding, so that helps. The part out back was very tall because mowers were in the shop due to some little accidents I’ve documented here, but don’t choose to revisit. The embarrassment factor, dontcha know. Fortunately for me, it has been […]

Oh, just what I needed – Old People Smell

May 30th, 2012 · 2 Comments

I was just scanning the Internet headlines and there it was: SCIENTISTS CONFIRM EXISTENCE OF ‘OLD PEOPLE SMELL’ When you are past 60, it is just not thrilling to think of yourself in this light. And I am not going to listen to any late night comedians for a few days.

Update on The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

May 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Yesterday I wrote a post about the Kindle Daily Deal, which was, as you know from the title of this post, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating. The author, Elisabeth Tova Bailey, left me a comment and I was curious enough to seek out her webpage. That would be THIS ONE RIGHT HERE. I […]

Kindle – The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

May 29th, 2012 · 2 Comments

I have always been a reader. Before the days of my Kindle, I have been known to read a book and then use it to prop up a wobbly sofa leg. There have been a few times when I have actually removed the book, looked at the title and reread it, disregarding the sofa leg-sized […]

Possibly a new candle fragrance

May 28th, 2012 · No Comments

Recently I noted in a post that Yankee Candle was offerring scents for men. I’ve got a suggestion based on an email I received from LZP: It was 95 degrees here today and the freakin’ dump is on fire the whole county smells like a big smokey pot of chittlin’s. aarrrrggghhh at least this wasn’t […]

I am watching the Indianapolis 500

May 27th, 2012 · No Comments

But I have just been doing that since noon; where have I been before that? Beats me, I thought I had posted at least twice. Do you suppose I dreamed it? Well, since I see nothing posted, I must assume there was a glitch and you know what? I’ll bet they were the best two […]

Two Moo and I are back

May 24th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Ah, I see Two Moo decided to post her own little entry during the trip. Two Moo did not make it clear that the carpal tunnel brace did NOT go into “used” toilet water. She looked like the cow who ate the cat who ate the canary last evening and I think maybe she was […]

Yankee Candle – bet there’s no sale on these

May 24th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Because I order Yankee Candles online, I get a lot of emails notifying me of sales. I take advantage of the semi-annual ones – six for $69. I doubt these four fragrances – or should I call them smells? – will go on sale. No, they are too much of a novelty for women to […]

Hello from near the cemetery

May 23rd, 2012 · 2 Comments

Okay, AmeliaJake and I got to Susie’s and AmeliaJake went to the bathroom and knocked Susie’s carpal tunnel brace into the toilet. The pot fell over in the car. Then things got better. More later. From Two Moo, your friend.

The pots are ready

May 22nd, 2012 · No Comments

That’s what we’ve always called them – pots. I guess florists and greenhouses refer to Memorial Day flowers by some other name, although it escapes me at this time. Mother’s pot, Daddy’s pot, Grandpa Shimp’s pot and Grandma Shimp’s and Auntie’s. I think calling them pots is related to getting the actual container, sticking your […]
