Ear Re-piercing - - -

So, about 50 plus years ago a group of my "friends" met at ****'s house before choir practice. 

The conversation came around to ear piercing and once the "mob" realized my ears were all pink and healthy, decided to make them painful, infected and very angry red!

They dragged me off to the bathroom and sat me on the toilet seat - I've no idea why toilet seat and not kitchen chair - maybe her mom would have intervened - if only:)

That night I couldn't sleep for the pain and woke up with swollen, sore, you name it earlobes.

The right ear didn't have a good hole and I have fought to put earrings in for ages.

Monday, at Merle Norman, I was waiting for a makeup lesson - why, I don't know as rarely wear it. Anyway, I heard a bloodcurdling, furious scream emerge from a back area and realized a toddler just had her ears pierced.

By this time I had requested the tech re-do my ear - that toddler had nothing on me! I couldn't cream out loud as that would have been pitiful but I did a big one silently! What a wimp.

Well, a month or so ago my "new" laptop/notepad went kaput. t was only a couple years old.

Finally got a new one, waited til the tech could come set it up and a couple days later was off to Vancouver for a week.

Hopefully new posts will spew forth a week from now -think of everyone always.

A little stroke of brilliance (happens occasionally:)  Corralled all my hair and bath products in a $1.00 basket. Now I can sit on the bench and not have bottles flying all over - with the holes on the sides and bottom, it's perfect.This hand shower is the best - I think I use it more than the wall main one.

Brilliance #1

So in a moment of brilliance I thought to use kitchen tongs to reach cords on various blinds. Some are over the bay window with a sink and window ledge making it too far to reach. The other blind is over a front loader.

Better than new - - -

So my cleaner got the wine out and everything looks sparkling new -and he reinterated  "don't" touch a stain. Let me do it.

Hands Off!!!

So yesterday afternoon I attended a neighborhood "meet your neighbor" get together I walked over to get some sparkling water when a friend handed me a glass of Merlot (my fav).

Maybe I had one sip when a new acquaintance gestured with his hand and knocked my glass into my lap. My favorite cream dress pants and matching jacket are ruined as is the shell I wore under the jacket.

It's such a shock that everything is in slow motion - taking seconds to happen. I didnt even try to jump out of the way.'

"Googles your friend, Mom" echoed thru my head so I faithfully tried all the miracles -none worked.

The dry cleaner today told me if red wine ever spills to not try anything!!! Leave it to him. I will see result Saturday:)

Lost and Found!

Our son and DIL had luggage checked by security. To their consternation, they felt the GSP had gone missing.

we got an email saying the inspector had made such a mess that the GSP ended up hidden in a shoe -maybe his idea of humor??

Was happy to hear that it was located as was disappointed to think an official would do something like that.

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's an earthquake!!!

It was a quiet Monday morn til the jet flew low overhead. Actually ducked, (as if that would help) as was sure our house was going to be hit.

Then the "plane" didn't hit. Turns out a 4.7 to 5.4 quake had rumbled in the area.

I didn't feel the floor shake but it probably did.

Why Didn't I Know This Then!!!

 So, I just read a wonderful hint - scatter moist coffee grounds on your cold ashes before you start to empty the ashes. There will be no puffy mess of ash all over as they cling to the coffee grounds.

I learn this now that I have gas fireplaces!

Hope it helps someone.
