Sports cars

Do you have a sports car, hereafter know as "SC"? A Mustang, Camaro, Vet, etc.?

If  you do, have you noticed that as you are flyin low ridin down the road, a car comes racin up in your rear view mirror?

A Tiny Tot of a car.

A car like a Dodge Neon, Chevy Cobalt, VW Bug?  Ya those TT cars?

The ones that have squirrels in cages, runnin hard and just tryin to keep the posted speed limit, as engines. The ones that pedal to the metal, flat out, is going all of 75 tops. Yeah, those TT cars.

Their owner decides they want to go faster than a sports car.

With caged squirrels.

Ok, bring it on.

These poor little squirrels!

Can you imagine their feet?

Worn and bloody from tryin to go faster than they were meant to, which is usuallyis  no faster than 60.

They are outta breath.

Huffin and puffin.

Sweatin up a storm.

And in this heat!

Can you imagine those poor little exhausted animals?

All for show off sake.

After my trip to Minnesota, I have realized that these little cars were made for Minnesota. Their top speed limit is 60, 99% of the time. If you get lucky, (and I mean REAL lucky) you will have a 10 foot span of a 65 mph speed limit and then it drops like a lead bullett to 55. With a cop sitting 1/2" on the OTHER side of 55. Waitin. Waitin. Waitin.

So beware if drivin in Minnesota. The cops grow like trees out there. Can't turn around without seein 6!

I'm serious. And NO, I did not get a ticket. Not even got stopped.

I was good.

For once.

Oh yeah, back to my story.

So here we have the sports car toolin down the road mindin her own business.

When up pops a TT.

With squirrels.

In the inside lane.

And Grampa in the outside lane.

The sports car gets jammed in behind Grampa out for a Saturday afternoon drive on Monday morning.

SC can't go any where because Gramps is in no hurry because all he wants to do is get out of the house before Grams gets her honey do list finished and starts in on when is he gonna get it done and why wadn't it done yesterday.

He really just wants coffee with the guys before any of THAT begins.

Just relax and enjoy the day before madness and mayhem descends.

The squirrels in the TT have begun to run out of juice and they are just tryin to maintainin their speed along side Gramps. At 60. or maybe 58. or . . .

So here SC sits doin 60, or 56,  in a 710 70 mph zone, stuck.

Behind squirrels.

And No Hurry Gramps.

Tryin to get to work anywhere.

Squirrels and Saturday afternoon drivers are really pput in our path to make us stop and smell the roses.

Observe the world through rose colored glasses.

Whether we want to or not.

Today was not a "A rose colored glass" day.

I passed.

I wanted breakfast.

I was a hungry hungry hippo!

The guys at work were waitin on me!

I had to go!
Enjoy your weekend!


PS Yes breakfast was great! Eggs, jalepenos, onions, crisp bacon and picante sause!! YUMMMMM!!

Saw this on the bottom of an email:

I have learned that trying to please everyone is so hard but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Scrappers doc visit

Scraps got another good check up yesterday. It is healing VERY good! It will eventually have a white spot and he will not be able to see out of this spot but should be able to see out of the rest of that eye. Right now this spot is sticking out a little but over time it will go in. It is also pulling back in toward his nose and may continue to do that so it is back in align.

He's become an even bigger lap dog since this began. He is never very far from Michael or me. Usually at our feet if not in our laps.

All is good! It is a new day!

reading instructions

Ole Michael and I had this conversation yesterday about me not reading instructions. I buy  him Chocolate LOW FAT ice cream. What the hay?

I buy him ice cream so he can get fat. I buy him chocolate because he looooooves chocolate.

I never noticed that it said low fat.

Until he wouldn't eat it.

THEN I realized it said low fat.............

THREE WEEKS later........

So as you know, my blog is no longer available to all people, (And you can bet every dollar you  have that I studdered reeeeeeeaaaaaallllllly good on 'ALL PEOPLE' because I honestly wanted to come out with some extremely foul words....) so I have to send invites.

Michael asked for addresses and then sent them out for me.

I realized that I had not included all my friends, I had just given him the ones that had commented in the past several months. Some of the ones I know is 3D life, do not comment but read my stupid stuff, so I wanted to give them the opportunity to continue.

Find box, enter emails, click INVITE

Blogger says "Emails cannot have more than one @ in the address."

HUH? So I go back through and make sure all have only ONE @.


AGAIN: "Emails cannot have more than one @ in the address."


So I go BACK through it again and once again and

JUST HAPPEN to see the instructions:



Works every time............

Read instructions first.

Sometimes I think I have too much testosterone...........

Cheers my friends! Or Chuckles even!

I am not sure what direction I am going to take with this blog. At the moment I am considering closing it all together. I am tired of watching what I say because of cyberstalkers. I'm am tired of the crap load of hell they cause my family.

This blog was originally started so I could find something funny every day to focus on. Some story about my life to make you laugh. It was my therapy.

Cyberstalkers have invaded my life. Both in real life and cyber life.

This blog is no longer therapy. It has become a way for cyberstalkers to find out what is going on in my family and try to us it against us in some form or fashion.

It sucks. My family and I do not try to make others miserable. We do not go out of our way to harm others. We do not go out of our way to hurt someone's feelings. I am not saying in the course of life we do not inadvertently hurt someone's feelings. We do not do it on purpose.

I like most people and most people are welcome at my home. I try to make everyone that walks through my door feel welcome, everyday, anyday, holidays, anytime. Freinds are the family we pick for ourselves. And for someone to come into our lives and want to trash it, just makes me sad. It also makes me very mad.

The latest stalker has called my work and my cell phone too, leaving long messages for me to leave them alone. I have not contacted them in nine months. .

They are following my blog as UNKNOWN. .

I'm very sad. I like talking to you guyeses. I like making you chuckle, or laugh, with some story in my life.

I don't like having a shadow, much less a shadow that is evil. So I don't know where this will go.

Just ramblin. . .

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday! I took advantage of the time away from work (and school) to get a couple of things done around the house.

I scraped, sanded, wire brushed the scrolly bars holding my porch and painted them black. They had ATLEAST 2 coasts of hand painted paint on them along with tons of rust. Took 1 day for each post. Mowed both yards at the end of those days. That was Friday and Saturday.

I'm purty proud here! What a difference it made!
(This is the blue chair I talk about 2 paragraphs down.)

Sunday, I installed a new kitchen faucet that I have had for 3 years,  I repainted the hall. It was a dreary tan/brown/beige. Totally. Walls, baseboards, doors, ceiling. Everything. Now it is the same cheery yellow of the kitchen, which it flows into, with white trim and a white ceiling. Repainted the door frames, baseboards in the kitchen too.

Go me!!

I notice I forgot the paint the edge of the door.. .

From the kitchen going into the hall

Michael and I painted a couple of white grungy plastic chairs a red. Can of paint says burgundy but I think it looks more like cherry red instead. But still cute! He also painted an old green wooden chair to an oxford blue, (again can color) that looks more like bright royal blue. But again still cute. Now I need a can of white to repaint the bottom of the storm door to get the rust spots off.

I also painted the pots terra cotta orange too.

Monday, I was just going to dig up the pecan tree babies in the flower bed next to the driveway. Instead, I pull all irises, scrape the ground almost level in the front half, haul Austin Stone from the back yard and make a divider so that all flower beds are the same size, replant the irises, transplant a maple tree baby, and lay 29 bricks in the front half of the flower bed that will take a total of 180 when I am finished.

My poor friend, Arthur Ray Tus, was sure hurting when this was all said and done. Hands, findgers, feet, knees. The whole sha bam was hurtin to the point of almost tears. But I just can't stop. It has to be done.

(And might I add here, that I think the temp was hovering around 101-102 the entire weekend. I shudda sweated off about 10 pounds, but alas, my scales are stuck at. . . . you honestly didn't think I was really gonna tell you what I weigh, did ya?)

This is my only holiday that I have nothing to do all year. School year holidays are NOT holidays. Things are always trucking along. THERE ARE NO HOLIDAYS WHEN IN SCHOOL. Then on those holidays that come inbetween, like Christmas, haha getting something done there, right! Memorial day, that is a catching up on sleep day.

Keep ole Scrappers in your thoughts and prayers, we will find out on Friday if he gets to keep his eye or not. He got grass in it and rubbed the little lesion into an ulcer that won't heal. His tear duct is not working so the eye is not being kept moist unless we put drops in it every hour or so. So he is on different meds now. He now runs when he sees me. It took me 10 minutes of looking for him this morning. He has found new hiding places. . .  Dogs and kids will drive you AB-SO-LUTE-LY nuts.

Next week is my quick trip to Minnesota. Ya'll go keep Michael company. He will probably love the peace and quiet but ya never know. . .He might actually miss his ole Ma!!

Hugs to ya'll!
