Good morning and Happy Friday, wait, hang on, lemme’ check, it is Friday, right? My days and nights have literally been rolling all over each other. It started with the oven going out, then the A/C tanked. We got a new oven and a new A/C – one of the many pluses of apartment living. – THEN the pipes broke in the bathroom! Seriously. Fat chance we’ll be getting anything new there. Oh, and then there was a little hospital stay But all is well. It’s fine, I’m fine. Everything’s fine.

Okay, I have to ask, is anybody watching this freaky show?

I won’t go into detail just in case someone is watching it but I seriously can not figure out who the sociopath is! I think they all are! It’s one of those shows you think you figured it out, but nope, PLOT TWIST! I haven’t finished watching all of it because a person can only take so much crazy at one time but I will continue to watch this train wreck because I will figure it out!

Totally random me… Besides resting I’ve been quilting, crocheting, working on Christmas projects, digging into genealogy again, repotting house plants, and apparently growing my hair because I guess that’s just something I do now. it’s down to my waist! It’s crazy.

What about you guys, what’s some random stuff happening with you?

What about weekend plans? Did anybody go to or host some amazing BBQs over Memorial weekend? I have to say, it’s this time of year that I really miss my mom’s potato salad, which is my grandma’s potato salad. I know the recipe but it never tastes the same. What are your favorite foods at BBQs?

Well, this appears to be a forever-long post. I think I may have missed blogging… And of course, I’ve missed all of you. You’re always so kind when I disappear forever and then just pop up. I’ll try to do better. There really have been some challenging days but I’ll do what I can do as long as you keep reading my drivel.



MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – “Ladys” (He spelled it that way not me!)

Missed Connection Monday is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section on Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it – Your local serial killer hunting ground.

You are so cute, we talked for a little while but I didn’t get your number.
***** Dear Keystone, Not to play Captn. Obvious or anything but I’m pretty sure you didn’t get the number because they didn’t want you to have the fucking number. Take a hint and mosey on.

You always write my name on my drink, you know what I want before I even have to order, and the other day you said hi over the other window gal. (All through drive-through only) 😄
***** Dear Starbucks, I don’t mean to burst your smiley face emoji bubble or anything but…
Holy hell I feel like I’m telling this guy that Santa isn’t real.
The “Starbucks’ Cutie” gets paid to write your name on your drink, and she remembers your drink for the tips. Your tips. Your money.
Tips = money. Do you see the connection here?? She’s a college chick trying to keep some gas in her beater with a heater vehicle that keeps breaking down, plus, pay her part of the rent and maybe get her nails done. She remembers your drink because she’s got bills to pay. You’re not special. This is not a Starbucks love connection. Geesh. 

(What the fuck, are people really this stupid??)

Two of you came over and were very nice, I should have offered to get you drinks and join me.
***** Dear Ladys, Are you the fucking twin of Starbucks’ Cutie?? I feel like I’m a parrot. Those ladys (with a y) are paid to go to your table.  Sometimes people call them waitresses and/or hostesses…

Hi everybody. Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend.
For me it was a weekend of poor choices and can I just tell you, the poor choices in your 50s are not nearly as much fun as the poor choices you make in your 20s.
My super colossal poor choice???
I decided to rearrange my bedroom and I absolutely hate it. It feels totally wrong so now I have to move everything back to the way it was! Ugh! My biggest issue? I immediately knew that my bed was in the wrong place. I absolutely have to have my head at the right end of my bed. You know what I mean? Anyway, I got zero sleep and I’m pretty sure I pulled some muscles because of all of the tossing and turning. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has ever done this.

SATUR-YAY! – The Saturday 9

It’s a cool Saturday thing hosted by Sam over at Saturday 9 and I get to play along!

“Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak.”

Saturday 9: Wagon Wheel (2013)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) This week, Darius Rucker sings about hitching a ride to reach his lady love.
*****Have you ever thumbed a ride?
No. I grew up in the “Oakland County Child Killer” days. For anyone who lived in the area, we still carry that nightmare with us.

2) Along the way, he loses his money in a poker game. Successful poker players are good at bluffing or misleading others about their cards.
*****Are you good at bluffing, whether at cards or in life?

3) Darius began his career as the lead singer of 90s soft-rock band Hootie and the Blowfish. Today he’s a country singer.
Let’s say you’re stuck in traffic and only one radio station comes in clearly.
*****Would you prefer it play soft rock or country?

4) Darius Rucker will be on tour throughout 2023, playing dates all over the country and making a couple stops in Cancun.
*****Have you ever visited Mexico? If so, where did you go?
No, but I can speak a little Spanish.

5) Darius has lent his talents to fundraising for The First Tee, a non-profit that teaches children “life lessons, self-confidence, and resilience through golf.”
*****Did you participate in organized sports as a youngster? If yes, what did you play?
Well, I don’t often share because my sporty phase was so short,
see what I did there?

But yeah, you could say I did some organized sports.

6) A big sports fan, he has six TVs in his home so he can watch several games at once. His largest set is 70″.
*****When it comes to TV screens, do you believe bigger is better? Or are you just as comfortable watching from your laptop or phone?

7) In 2013, when “Wagon Wheel” was popular, fans were flocking to the movie theater to see Catching Fire, the second in the Hunger Games series.
*****Are you a Hunger Games fan?
I’ve never seen them.

8) Also in 2013, the word “selfie” was added to the Oxford Dictionary.
*****Do you take a lot of selfies?
Yeah. No.

9) Random question:
*****If we paid you $5,000, would you get Saturday 9 tattooed on your right forearm?
I’m gonna’ go with a NO on that.
I’m still working up the courage to get a family tattoo but it’s not the pain that scares me…

FRI-YAY! – Oh say can you see???

I feel like such a loser American. I didn’t even know there was a National Anthem Day, did you guys??

It’s also National Cold Cuts Day. Who knew?
And since we’re talking about meat…

It’s also World Wildlife Day.
George of the Jungle – hands down my favorite form of wildlife.

It’s also the Global Day of Unplugging, which is what I’m about to do right now but not without sharing one more special day…
Happy International Irish Whiskey Day!
