ever made?

This has been around for a while but I just had to post it again.  Always funny and this time it is especially for Lee of Kitchen Connections after reading her post about Clint her chocolate bunny.

 I love my surveillance cameras so much and the intercom that is part of the system.  Friends and family who visit me usually enter my den door.  Strangers come to the front door.  Yesterday one came a knocking.

It is not even necessary to open the door.  I simply press talk on my monitor and ask "May I help you?".  It is great to see them whirl around to find the direction of the voice and they end up staring right into the camera.  

The fellow said to me, "I am in this area about twice a year calling on Medicare recipients and need a few minutes of your time."  My polite response was, "I do not have time today so just leave your card on that little table near the door."  "Okay" he says as he stands there writing quite a bit on the card before he puts it on the table and leaves.  

Turns out he was a financial consultant and didn't even have his own card.  He had to write his name and phone number on another person's card.  Regardless he was a salesman trying to make me think he was with Medicare.  

Did I mention that I love my surveillance system?

Question Of The Week 3-14-16


I have a precious friend who cannot cook.  The last thing she brought me was homemade bread and I told her it was good.  Although it probably will mean more bread to come, it seemed the right thing to say:-)

I almost forgot to celebrate.  March 9th was my 11th Year Blogaversary for FOOLS RUSH IN by Granny Annie.  Not only have my posts changed dramatically over the years but so has my following of other bloggers.  Still I "make new friends and keep the old.  One is silver and the other gold."  Thank you for sharing this journey with me!

Question Of The Week, 3-7-16

Because of my experience in sales I believe Ringmaster would be what I was most qualified to do but I would probably enjoy being a clown most.

Who can believe that March has already arrived?  It is coming in like a lion here with severe thunder storms.  Because of the art challenge, the month of February passed for me in the blink of an eye and now it is time to think about paying bills, taxes and politics.  

Before jumping into all that I gave myself a day off yesterday and watched SPOTLIGHT after seeing it win so many awards at the Oscars.  (And speaking of the Academy Awards, my goddaughter Jessi who works for The Academy, was there again on the red carpet chatting up Michael Keaton and having her picture taken with Sylvester Stallone!!  Stay tuned.) 

Anyway back to my relaxing day....watching SPOTLIGHT was not relaxing at all.  Great movie but I was on the edge of my seat and recommend it to all who have not seen it.
