New job

So after landing my new job as a store greeter, although a good find for many, I lasted less than a day. Here's the story....

About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance. I said pleasantly, 'Good morning and nice children you have there. Are they... twins?' The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, "NO, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7. Why in the world would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or stupid?' So I replied, 'I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am, I just couldn't believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping here today.'

My supervisor said I probably wasn't

cut out for this line of work.

Breakfast on the deck

We love our new little grill.  Had pork chops on it last nite, then this morning we woke up with no electricity.  The power company was out in our back yard at 6 AM.  Seems there was a break in the underground wiring that they put in 10 years ago.  They were able to pull in a new line from about 5 houses down.   In the mean time, hubby was so happy to fire up that generator so I could make coffee.  We cooked oatmeal on the BBQ grill, did I mention that I love this little red beauty?  Then he fired up the generator again so I could make toast.  So we ate on the deck and watched the crew work on the power.  By 9 AM we had electricity again.  It was 85 degrees by then.

It is going to be 102 here today, So if you have a cat, give it a shave like this one and it will feel so much cooler, guaranteed!

Now tell me, does this look like a Great Grandma??

Well I am and this little gal is # 2.  She has a big sister that just turned 4!  Was fun to just cuddle this little one.  Oh, and big sister noticed that Great Grandma had crabs in her ears!!

Tick Removal

Tick Removal


> A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where they automatically
