LEAVINGS

This is the nice note paper Hope designed for me on her last visit.
Michael left this picture on my computer.  He was showing me how to use the camera.
Michael also left shirt and socks.  Hope left her cap and gloves.

Ryan left a pack of Monster drink.
Dillon left me interested in some sports programs. 
Beth left me with tales of her daring and hilarious adventures with her best friend Bruschetta. (nickname not her real name.)


They all left me hooked on THE BIG BANG THEORY, iCARLY and SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS.
They all left me, as always, with wonderful memories added to the list of grandchildren visits.

TELL ME WHY BABY WHY BABY WHY BABY WHY...



Why,  why, why I ask you? Is it true this  "fad" started in prisons as a show of those available for sexual activity. I simply do not get the desire for this fashion statement and  will never understand how these people walk around.  The TV show COPS often portrays the criminal being caught when his pants fall off in a chase.  Can anyone explain this weirdest of all clothing choice?

That cartoon came to me in an email and I wish I could credit an artist. It is hilarious!

GETTING MY KICKS




This new year has started all wrong.  Commenting on another blog the other day I found myself sympathizing with their lethargy and said that I needed a "kick start".  There are chores to be done,  I have movies to watch, books to read, craft projects waiting, journaling and blogging  to do, meals to plan and prepare, exercise is calling me, watching my weight is totally neglected,  etc., etc., etc.  And so what am I doing...absolutely nothing.  Yes I have posted to my blog but not with the same enthusiasm as usual. Facebook is getting more difficult for me to understand and follow. Gradually I am getting lost in the world of Words With Friends which captures most of my computer attention.  For some reason my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went.

If someone has a solution, then .....................KICK ME PLEASE!!

PICK FIVE

 If  you play WORDS WITH FRIENDS, I hope you will have fun with this challenge.  Take five words from one game you recently completed and work them into a short comment.  

(If you don't play the game, use these five words from a recent game I played: Huger, gushy, yagi,, weet, pun. Or five words someone else uses).

THE VISIT

His hat and shoes in the middle of the living room floor.  When I complained, he told me it was "art".

Here is the spider that was in Ryan's shoe.  He was very careful after finding this fellow to check his shoes before slipping them on.


Ryan carefully kept his time card for the hours he worked.  Grandpa pays well and Ryan was trying to earn enough for his parking permit so he could take his truck back to college this semester.

Here is a sample of the work Ryan did while he was here.  This is for the sewer pipe for our new bathroom.  We have a lot of rock in the ground and he also had to be on the lookout for wires or cables.


I sure do miss him.  It was a great week and I laughed so hard it hurt.  We had not spent any time with him since he went off to college so there were many stories to hear and lots of catching up  to do.

QOTW 1-9-12 HOME REMEDIES

Question Of The Week 01-09-12

Have you ever treated an illness with home remedies and ended up in the hospital (or at least at the doctor's office) due to improper medications?

Is it my imagination or doe it seem that there are a lot of sick people this year?  It seems that many of our blogger friends have flu or similar symptoms.

P.S.  Say hello to my 100th follower THE LAST KRYSTALLOS.  A red letter day after almost 7 years posting this blog,
