Put on Your Glasses

The evidence that I almost brushed my teeth this morning with Cortizone is shown here.  Red, white and blue are  popular colors in marketing.

One More CC

Yes, Closed Captioning is still turned on. Sometimes I believe I watch too much tv but I actually do other things in between catching weird stuff on television.

Chutzpah translated into Closed Captioning:  Shuts paw.  Pronunciation is given at as rhyming with "foot spa."

I love words.

Color Selection

Using up old yarn makes for some unusual color combinations. These three skeins were "left over" so I thought they might be ok.

After I had started, the word bilious came to mind. I thought it meant, when referring to colors, unpleasing, not ordinary or ugly.

The dictionary's small print tells me that bilious means suffering from disordered liver function and  especially an excessive secretion of bile.

So how does that strike you early in the morning?

A Confusion of Words

Rosalee Floral Chenille Bedspread - White - TW - Vermont Country Store

Seeing a post of chenille bedspreads on Facebook the other day brought back a memory from a long time ago.

I loved suits. I thought they were so neat and looked professional. I was working at the time and had several but thought I wanted one with a shorter jacket. (No belly bulge then.)

So I went to one of our most elegant stores in town, Pegues. As I was looking through the rack of suits, a sales person asked if she could help me.

"Yes, do you have an suits in the style of Chanel?"

The look I got from her made me think she was highly disturbed. I realized later that she thought I was nuts.

"No, we don't have anything in chenille."

I'm sure she thought I didn't know how to pronounce the type of bedspread she thought I was looking for.

Pot Holder

If the red were a little more red, you could say these were the German colors of their flag.
I'm using up what yarn I have making pot holders. Mindless work while watching TV!

nothing new here

It's cold and snowing lightly. The only change is the snow will stop, it will get much colder and the wind chill will be Awful.

More notes from Closed Captioning:

Vehement mind for Vietnam.

This could be a whole new hobby - looking for unusual translations on CC.

Fading Mugs

We received these mugs twenty-seven years ago from our daughter-in-law after our first granddaughter was born!

We have used them a lot! They both have a chip and the red paint has faded - Love on the left and Grandpa on the right!

I guess at their age (as cups) they are lucky to still be here.

Same for us.
