Cart Before the Horse - - -

So I bought a red hat the other day, thinking I'd join the Red Hat Club. When I researched the club, it appears to be a social only thing. That is good in its self but I thought maybe it were for charity.

Anyway, in my usual bumbling style, bought the hat ($19.99) and now will check out our local society.

This little baby (8 week) pit bull was so absolutely darling. I have to admit that I recoiled in horror inside when his teenage owner told me his breed.

His coat was way more beautiful than my illustration and of course, his little tummy was bare of fur - so sweet.

The teen owner said he wanted him to give him all the love he fears other pb dogs do not receive.

Important to note that one of our sons was attacked by a pit bull at a business establishment. His knee is still numb after 12 years and the nightmares recur.

I guess I just wanted to be silly writing this post - we met the family at a tourist info centre.

His velvety blue eyes met mine again. He seemed to have trouble focusing. Never have I seen such beautiful, silvery gray hair.

I looked away, trying to concentrate on my reading.

His magnetism drew me over, "You are so absolutely beautiful." I held his face, he froze a little until I rubbed his ears, moving my hands to cuddle his body, caressing his smooth tummy. He wiggled with pleasure, toes splayed.

Grandma wailed in the back ground, "I warned him to not get involved, it's always trouble." Voices murmured in agreement, looking our way.I ignored them, he needed a cuddle.

"What is your name?"

"Deuce, for the extra toe on each white back foot. He's a pit bull puppy."

Toilettes, etc.

- - - Or, I left my heart (read shoe) in San Francisco

I love establishments which have the auto flush toilets. I never touch the flush handle with bare hand so discovered using my foot is usually better.

One must remember to be wearing well fitted shoes, have good balance and not be rushed.Well, I had one of the three.

Long story short, my sandal fell into the bowl - luckily I was at a fair and just bought a really cheap replacement - course, those will never fall in the bowl - and no, I didn't fish it out. Kind of hung around for a scream or hysterical laugh but no one reacted to it. Heard of snakes rising up from the depths but never a shoe. Of course, I had removed my other shoe, I'm dorky enough without walking around in one sandal.

From my friend, Carole:)

Thought for the day:

Women are angels, and when someone breaks our wings,
we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick.

We are flexible.


So, after many months of effort, I bought my jeans. Haven't worn jeans in several years and wanted to be an OK size before I tried some.

Turns out Gloria Vanderbilt (Amanda line) are the right ones for me. Yeah!

Cute Cops

Waiting for a prescription, a vote was taken on what to eat for dinner - like, what kind. Chinese, it will be then.

As we pulled up to the Chinese food establishment, we saw a police cruiser parked. The usual jokes about donuts, "Didn't know Chinese restaurants sold donuts." etc.

Two very muscled, burly officers stood in line, happily choosing their dishes. Actually I felt good thinking maybe little dweeb robbers would bypass this place for the time being, anyway.

Really didn't mean to eavesdrop but one couldn't help as table were close. My back was to the 2 fellows but it was a delight to listen. One had the most infectious laugh and the other played on it.

They finished their meals first and I hurriedly finished mine, protected yet by their presence:)

Upon opening my fortune cookie, was delighted to read, "You will feel protected today".

Drunken Pilot U-Tube Vs Real Life

A friend sent a comedy video of a "drunken pilot" jumping in his plane and flying. Of course, his drunken flying was indeed very good stunt piloting. I held my breath several times.

In real life, Wayne and I lost a friend who chose to go up in a plane - drunk - awaiting the birth of his 5th child, I might add.

It's interesting how humor is humor unless it touches a nerve. Anyway, I hope this pilot flies safely for he surely is very talented.
