Google drones in Australia – in case you spill the bottle of cow stuff

August 29th, 2014 · No Comments

Here’s an interesting link that Der Bingle sent to me today about drones, something he knows some things about – or is it crones that he’s familiar with? Come to think of it, I do Google a lot.

This Wubba thing

August 29th, 2014 · No Comments

I sit down, there he is, staring at me. I look down at his feet and my feet and there it is – a Wubba. Only his new game is not “Throw it for me.” His current idea of play is “Let’s see who can grab it first.” Of course, it is always Shane, but […]

The Internet can be tricky

August 29th, 2014 · 1 Comment

This morning I went over to Pottermom’s blog and right in front of my eyes was a yellow minion wishing me Happy Birthday in a post dated August 27th. There was one below it from the 26th. Both of these posts did not show up on my computer until today, the 29th. I don’t understand […]

Boring Person in Kendallville

August 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Just a few minutes ago, it came to me: I am a boring person in Kendallville, Indiana. Now, the question might be: Am I boring because I am in Kendallville? But we all know it is not. Heck, I know librarians who are less boring than I am. Well, I know of librarians; I’m pretty […]

These are Austrian Gnomes

August 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Der Bingle sent me a link to an article about gnomes used in an Austrian political campaign. I am almost left speechless, with the exception of asking, If like they are Schwarzennegger, is it implied that They’ll be back.

Chicken grin

August 26th, 2014 · 2 Comments

We didn’t eat much chicken in my house when I was growing up, mainly because I think my mother was tired of it after The Great Depression and the war years. They had plenty to eat during those times, it just wasn’t store bought food or specialty items. Everything came from the farm, even the […]

Honda Metropolitan scooter-2009 – for sale in Kendallville??

August 25th, 2014 · No Comments

Well, I don’t know. I go out and look it and then I think of my soon to be 66-year-old-body, which barely measures five feet. That, by the way, is how I estimate distances by eye: How many AmeliaJake’s end-t0-end to cover a span.  Ah, yes, that room is about four AmeliaJakes by a little […]

I got a birthday box!!!!!! From LZP and Sambo

August 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

Step by step I open it.       I haven’t had a great deal of time to settle down and be coherent about the contents of my box. Were people here, I would be hopping up and down, drinking cola, snacking away and chuckling over possible names. Frankly, I’m still working on figuring out […]

So, I am not the only duct tape user

August 22nd, 2014 · No Comments

I was going to put the work kook in the post title instead of “user” but I held back . . . but only until now. There I’ve said it: Kook. To tell the truth it wasn’t so much the duct tape because it was used for a reasonable purpose, if you want to restrain […]

Unusual for moi

August 21st, 2014 · No Comments

My tummy is upset today; this is not one of my frequent complaints. Oh, I may have lower tummy emergencies, but they are quick events. This morning my upper tummy is uneasy and is, therefore, a pain in the neck. As one who has experienced motion sickness from infancy on up, that nausea has also […]
