Please stop by

My cousin Trish's daughter, Alyssa, has started a cooking/baking blog. For some of the best looking and tasting cinnamon buns on this side of heaven please drop in on her. She has photos of the whole process from start to finish and the end result looks mighty pleasing to the eye! I can smell the aroma of cinnamon filling the whole house while they are baking.

My blog assistant is not here to help me link to here so go to and see for yourself those great buns! Give them a try and let her know what you think. She would appreciate the comments.

What A Week!!!

I may have posted the funny listed below before, if so I'm sorry. I just needed help with getting a smile on my face this morning! I had a very rough last week. Meagan had foot/ankle surgery last Friday. She has 2 very large incisions on the inside and outside of her foot. She had 2 surgeries on the same foot. On crutches for the moment then either a cast or walking boot for 6 weeks or more. I'm her private duty nurse, chef, chauffeur, etc until she can get back to normal . Absolutely no weight on that foot, what a balancing act that is! Terrible dog fight one day. Just a bad week no matter how I look at it!! My sister really told me off in an email. So here is to next week and better days ahead!

To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity

1. At Lunch Time, Sit In Your Parked Car With Sunglasses on and point a Hair Dryer At Passing Cars. See If They Slow Down.

2. Page Yourself Over The Intercom. Don't DisguiseYour Voice.

4. Put Decaf In The Coffee Maker For 3 Weeks . Once Everyone has Gotten Over Their Caffeine Addictions, Switch to Espresso.

5. In the Memo Field Of All Your Cheques, Write ' For Marijuana'.

6. Skip down the hall Rather Than Walk and see how many looks you get.

7. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat,with a serious face.

8. Specify That Your Drive-through Order Is 'To Go'.

9. Sing Along At The Opera.

10. Five Days In Advance, Tell Your Friends You Can't Attend Their Party Because You have a headache.

Goodwill and Gidget, the new Pug

Yes, Libby and I went to the Goodwill last week. She bought so many cute things for herself and 2 of her grands. We then went to Sonny's BBQ for pulled pork sandwiches, hers on garlic bread and mine on a toasted bun, both then slathered in BBQ sauce, plus crinkle fries and cole slaw. It sure hit the spot after all that shopping. Let's not forget the really big drinks we had, too. Iced tea with lots of lemon and Libby had root beer. It was so stinkin' hot that day and even in the store. We both were just drippin' with sweat. The big iced drinks just hit the spot! I thought I did so good not to get any sauce on my shirt. Then I stood up and there it was, in 2 big spots. Went to the ladies room to wash it out. HA HA, not with that soap, I needed grease remover!!

Her daughter Steph called to see if we were still there at the store cause she was looking for an entry table. By now Mr. Steve had joined us, so back to Goodwill we go. No table, so we then went to Salvation Army Thrift Store. Nothing there either, although she found a few more things for the kids. They were going to Wal-Mart but I went on home. I had something VERY important to do!!

I called my friend's niece to meet me so I could pick up Gidget, the pug. I grabbed a harness and leash and took off to Winter Haven in my rickety old car. I knocked on the door and the dogs all greeted me. Gidget was so scared. It was all we could do to get the harness on her, she was too big and it was too little. She had an accident on the kitchen floor cause she was so scared. It was heartbreaking to take her from her home and her 4 other dog companions. Cindy won't be able to be on her own for some time and her sister told her she has to find homes for the dogs. She wanted me to have Gidget since I have Fuji, a pug also. We went to the car and she hopped right in and we then headed home.

More about Gidget very soon!!

One more thing on my anyone else having trouble viewing blogs, for 3 weeks at least when I go to another blog, I almost immediately get a box with an error message from Internet Explorer saying it can't open,etc and shuts it down. It takes several tries and then sometimes I still can't view a blog. So I am trying to read all of your enties but sometimes I just can't.

Yippee Yippee

I just got a call from Libby. We were just yakking away and she asked if I had been to our favorite store lately. I told her no. She said " Do you want to go tomorrow?" I then asked are you coming down?? Boy, talk about a SURPRISE!!! She was already here! DH will drop her off at 1030am on Tuesday and lookout Goodwill cause here we come! I asked if she brought along a U-Haul?

Libby and her DH had come down the other day, they had been visiting their parents in North Florida and came on down the rest of the way to Winter Haven. I am so happy I just might have to do the Happy dance!! Wish all of you could be here with us. We would have a blast!

Happy, Happy Happy, that's me! I really needed this great surprise from my wonderful friend!!!

Ralph and Edna

My sister sent me this e-mail this morning and thought I would share for a Monday funny! The rain seems to be gone for the moment and we are back to SWELTERING!!

The love story of Ralph and Edna...

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end.He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.
Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna 's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.
When she went to tell Edna the news she said, ' Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself; I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?'

Today is Mental Health Day! You can do your bit by remembering to send an email to an unstable friend...
