Ka Boom!

Watching tv in bed we heard a loud crash. Something hit something. The dogs were both in the bedroom and they didn't seem overly concerned (?) I was concerned!

So I got up to check and see if a cane had fallen over in the bathroom. Nope.

Looked in the other bath room (en suite, a new word I learned this last year) and there it was - the suction cup handle that worked just fine in the shower. It is handy to have one if you feel the need to be steadied while you pick up the soap you've dropped. It is equipped with small warning colors of red when it is loose. They were green this morning. So what happened?

I'm just glad it wasn't a burglar dropping one of his tools.

Flu Shots

Be sure and get your flu shot.

One day of misery is better than two weeks of the flu.

Three Minutes Too Soon

A certain fast food restaurant advertises breakfast all day. In the dim, dark past  you couldn't get breakfast items after 10:30 a.m.

So last week somebody had a yearning for a cheeseburger. In we drove and ordered. "Sorry," said the voice over the speaker, "we don't serve lunch till 11:00 a.m."

I looked at the clock on the dash. 10:57. Three minutes.

Ohhhhh Kaaaay!  We went home and ate something that was probably better for us than a cheeseburger.

"I Feel Badly"

No you don't - unless you are trying to feel a surface or a fabric with your fingers and you are unable to feel the texture.

When you have sympathy for someone, you feel bad for them.

The grammar policewoman is alive and well in my head.

And don't get me started on lying down.  Today I lie down, yesterday I lay down, many times I have lain down.

Today I lay the book on the table, yesterday I laid the book on the table and many times I have laid the book on the table.

There. I feel better.

This morning was all errands - a yearly trip to the dermatologist with a freezing of a skin tag on my neck. Lee says that really burns. The doctor says, "She's tough. She didn't even flinch."  I didn't feel any burning so I said that maybe my nerve endings are dead.

A trip to our frequent place, the pharmacy, to pick up two refills.

A trip to Walmart for more yarn and sweet tea. I know, it's not good but neither is Coke!

Then a stop to get my hair cut at the drop in place - cheap too. You can sign in on line but they changed the format and I can't get it to work for me. It won't accept my password so I guess I'll have to start over. They gave me a card with instructions. Duh. Now I'll have two accounts there.

Home for lunch with a Sub sandwich. After all that, a nap.

And this afternoon it hit 90 degrees. The last hot days of summer!

Lost photo

I will never understand Facebook. My sister-in-law posted a picture of an afghan she made with some "stripe" yarn. It never showed on my form of Facebook. I can't find it anywhere.

So, I am going to try to post it here.

What do you know? She does beautiful work. We kept thinking we were buying variegated yarn but it actually says "stripe" on it. 
We need to pay attention.

The Brain - or the Mind

As I get older, I find that recent things are easily forgotten. Old memories pop up frequently.

Maybe that's why "older folks" talk about things that happened years ago. They can't remember what happened yesterday.

Anyway, Lee was watching an old movie when I walked into the bedroom. The scene was in beautiful technicolor with Joan Fontaine and Harry Belafonte on a hill above the surf. The words  'island in the sun' popped into my mind and I said it out loud. I asked Lee, as I always do, "What is this movie?" He looked at me - sort of like, what are you asking me for?

That was it. I do not remember ever seeing that movie but evidently my brain did.
