I’m watching you! – After the raid in the pond in which most of my pond plants were eaten, I bought an infrared trail camera. It takes pictures in the dark without alerting the subject. Before I can develop a course of action, I have to know what critter is doing this. I will get to the bottom of this mystery. More to come when I get the facts ma’am!
We do it my way — I have a method for remembering to buy bath soap. I put the old one on the shower ledge. The beloved husband put it back in the shower and I almost ended up soap less. When I explained the method to him he was astounded. He said, “With that arsenal of bottles in there, you don’t have soap?” I have different shampoos (depending on my mood — coconut scent for beachy moods, some are guaranteed to make my hair thicker or healthier or something) and hair conditioners, shine enhancers, etc., but only one body soap. The odd thing is that my hair always looks the same whether I use the special products or not.
Shop til you drop! – Which doesn’t take long for the beloved husband. He wanted to pick up some end of season sales. (No, he doesn’t realize that those sales happen in late June.) We embarked on this errand with me firmly at his side. When he shops, he misses things, like cute tee-shirts that are on the bottom shelf or that one pair of nice shorts hidden in with the hideous golfing clothes. Even I couldn’t find something for him although he did try a shirt on that didn’t fit. The dressing room is next to the men’s underwear and Calvin Klein has some hunky models on his brief’s packages. My, my, some of those briefs are…well…very brief indeed! It was getting warm in there.
I can be a hero too! — My brother came over for dinner with his 13-year-old grandson. This grandson is a picky eater. For years he survived on buttered noodles. I was convinced his teeth would fall out. So what do I serve that will get eaten? I decided to do burgers and corn on the cobb. I had coleslaw for the adults but I knew he wouldn’t eat that. So what vegetable would a teenager love? Potato chips! Perfect! Everyone was happy.
From the bro — My brother sent me this YouTube clip of Robin Williams as the American flag. As always, he is hilarious and sneaks in a few impersonations. Love his Mick Jagger!
