Happy birthday Mom (and Anita too) – This week is my Mom’s birthday. She’s been gone since 1986 but I always remember her on her special day. My niece also has a birthday this week. In our family we celebrate for the entire month! Come on and belly up to the bar!
OMG it’s fall here! – The kids went back to school and the evenings are cool. Summer flowers are tired and droopy and chrysanthemums are popping up all over. Pumpkin food and drinks are available. My Aussie friends are rejoicing the arrival of spring. Life circles around. Fall is always a conflict for me. It’s often pleasant but signals the start of the winter cycle – leaves falling, ground freezing and all that stuff I hate.
Hey, I’m not a snack tray! — After complaining about mosquitoes all summer long, a friend sent me an article. It’s from the internet so it must be true! It’s says to put Listerine in a spray bottle and spray it around. It will keep the mosquitoes away.
Smart cars? — I got in my car after dark. I started it up and couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t see. I just assumed it was because of the eye problem I was having. It turns out that my lights weren’t on but it took two blocks in the dark to figure it out. My auto lights are automatic so I’ve never had to turn them on before. I was switching buttons all over the place. It’s not good to have a car that’s smarter than you!
I’m still around — Speaking of eyeballs, I can’t do a lot of reading or computer work. If you haven’t seen my witty comments, it’s not for lack of interest. I am trying to limit my time on the computer. I never really knew how much time I spend here. It’s a lot!
How was your week?
