Here is My List of Things I don’t like or don’t Understand…

OM at Harsh Reality started this with his list.  See it here.  My list is different, but I notice some similarities.  Have fun!  Enjoy the nice weather and the holiday!

  1. I hate when I am on a dating site and I read about this fantastic woman and her traits.  I am really happy, then I read the last line, “If you voted for Trump, we won’t get along.”  Heck, that’s fine, but couldn’t you have said that FIRST!!!?
  2. I hate when you grab your phone for an important call you had forgotten to make, see the power bar is flashing and you punch in your number only to have the phone die when they answer.
  3. I hate when I grab my satchel and keys, drive 15 minutes to the store, face the crowd, only to find out I left my wallet next to the computer earlier – then, it rains.
  4. I hate when I download a good movie to my tablet, then, when I go to watch it, it says “expired”.
  5. I hate when I walk into the kitchen to get something, can’t remember what it is, figure that out and pick up the thing, then can’t remember why I wanted it.
  6. I hate when I get beat to a parking space or rush only to find the next car is over the line, and all I can think about is Kathy Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes.
  7. I really hate when a blog writer doesn’t know when to stop…

Namaste,

Scott

Remembering Jackie

I enjoy reading athingirl.com, doing so often. This is a fine example of how well she writes and how well she can share her heartfelt thoughts.

It was May, 1994, when I was coming home through Central Park, wondering why there were so many news trucks along Fifth Avenue.

I had yet to learn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, better known to the world, as just Jackie, had come home to die.

She had been suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma for almost a year assuming she’d recover.  When she learned it had gotten worse without a chance of that happening, she made the decision to call it a day.

I’ve often wondered how that must have been for someone like her who lived such an amazing life, now choosing to leave it.

I wandered into the grocer’s where Harry, the produce man, told me Mrs. Kennedy, as she was always called, just received the last rites, according to her longtime cook, not expected to live through the night.

The whole neighborhood was shocked and saddened since, though we didn’t…

Regifting

Could not agree more. I make sure that I tell people when I create my Amazon list that all books and DVDS can be in “Very Good” shape, not new. I just hate highlighting and underlining. Leave that out an we are fine.

DON’T!!!

Let’s do one another a favor passing on the impulse.

Just now, for instance, I opened a box of chocolates whose presenter will remain nameless,  that looked as if they came by way of Gaza, and that’s putting it politely.

The box itself was crushed on both ends and rather than, Fine Swiss Chocolates, said… ine iss colates, which made me wonder if it was some type of French bubble bath or inflatable undies you blew up.

They came in a second box with a scarf perfect for Barbie who they may have been shopping for.

And no, we can’t blame it on the mail since it was delivered in person. I, adhering to the old Connecticut custom of opening your gifts Christmas morning didn’t, while the party was in residence.

Was it my imagination, or were they relieved?

Could have been all that wine they drank.  See, I’m…

One sick puppy . . . and she needs your help

I think it is a good cause.

Robin Coyle

Hello blogging friends! I jump-started my blogging routine a couple of months ago and then, what do you know, it fizzled. The reason? Who knows!? I’m sure you have all experienced the same thing.

However, I am moved to do a blog post today because this precious 4-month-old puppy needs your help. Help from all of us. Let me explain . . .

Our daughter Paige is a crazy dog lover. Not a lover of crazy dogs, but is nutty over dogs. Actually, we all are. But, back to Paige being a dog nut . . . ever since she met an English Cream Golden Retriever several years ago, she has longed to have one of these gorgeous dogs in her life.

That dream came true in September when this little nugget came into her life.

Look at all that puppy-goodness!

Needless to say, I was head-over-heels in love as well.

Here’s one from a time ago that still tells how I feel today.
