Heard this on the radio the other day. Couple had been married 65 years so the radio host asked the husband why their marriage was so successful. He replied, "Well, when we got married we agreed I'd make all the major decisions and she'd make all the small ones. And so far nothing major has come along".|

I have a shopping addiction and I'm proud to say this December will be two years without compulsive shopping. I'm quite proud of myself. |

I have been "Nurse Ratched" to my husband, who broke BOTH of his ankles in an accident with his ATV. He won't be able to put any weight on his feet for another five weeks. Just happy that he is joking with me from that hospital bed set up in our family room, it could have been so much worse.|

While fishing early this morning at a local midwest U.S. lake. I saw two flocks of Canadian Geese flying in V formation. Strange thing about that is they were flying due north. Hope that means winter is over. |

My older son made his first communion a few years ago. We had a get together for family and friends after the service. He received some cards and gifts and when it was all over he said "This was fun I can't wait until my second communion"|

This is something that bothers me and I see it happening all the time. I'm talking about grown people who walk with small children and they are rushing the poor children, or better yet dragging the poor children. Please understand, a small child has to take four to six steps to your two! If you need to be somewhere in a hurry leave earlier!|

It is the first of December, so this poem fits:|
The fallen leaves are cornflakes
that fill the lawn's wide dish.
The night and noon, the wind a spoon
and stirs them with a swish.
The sky's a silver sifter,
a-sifting white and slow
that gently shakes on crisp brown flakes
the sugar known as snow.

Well, it could have been me. The Hills, who just won half of the PowerBall lottery, live about 8 miles up the highway from me. I bought my tickets at the same convenience store. Out of 5 tickets, I had only 1 matching number. I don't know them, but they seem like very nice people. I'm wondering what 292 million dollars will do to their lives.|

I gave my dog, Jasper, some beef ribs earlier this afternoon and so, of he trotted, to the far end of the garden decking to enjoy an afternoon of gnawing.|
About 30 minutes later I hear some excitable and playful barking from the back garden. There was Jasper trying to keep two magpies from stealing his bones. One, sat on top of the garden shed would hop along the ridge, enticing Jasper to run towards it. As the dog did this, the other bird sat on our neighbours fence, would attempt to fly down and steal one of Jasper's bones. The dog, realising this, would turn sharply and chase this bird back to its perch on the fence. It was sooooo funny!
Result! I'm entertained and the dog gets exercised!

When the world seems bleak, it is so amazing how family and friends can lift your spirits and when you add a new puppy to the mix, the most difficult days are a little less dark|

I got a hand payout of over $1,000 at a casino last night. And then proceeded to put/lose $400 back in the machines lol (why does the Kenny Roger's song The Gambler come to mind!?).|

I used to work with a guy who had a very deranged sense of humor.We worked in a printing shop together and one day when |
I was at lunch, he had sliced his hand with a knife. The cut wasn't serious, but did produce a fair amount of blood. People
would sometimes come into the shop to look for a report. Knowing this, he smeared the blood on his face and laid on the floor. Sure enough, a woman came in 2 minutes later and screamed when she saw him on the floor. She rushed out to get help, and when she returned with the supervisor, my co-worker was back at his desk with no trace of blood on his face. He looked at her as if she had hallucinated the whole thing. Strange man.

As a member of "The Dog People," I just wanted to share that I currently have an 11 month old puppy that we adopted from the local humane society. She has brought so much joy into our lives, so I highly recommend adopting a pet from a shelter if you are looking to get a pet. There are so many homeless pets out there who just want a loving home!|

I had a great day with the in-laws picking out Christmas gifts online, watching football and ordered in pizza!|

It was a long day and night was falling ( does night really fall, I wonder?) when it dawned on me (do things dawn like turn into morning?). What an odd language full of comparisons. Can''t we just say what something is withot saying it is like this? I guess not; we treat our language like old shoe leather. And that reminds me after night settled in (oh my) night does not settle or fall), once it was dark, I spoke to my sister on the phone. It was to be her birthday tomorrow. To end the call I burst into song |
. ( oh my, I didn't blow up or explode at all). However, my rendition of the birthday song was so flat that I could hear my sister seeing it through until my raspy notes had played their monotonous course.
It's almost preordained that one can cliche themselves into oblivion, no?

Really busy at work at the moment but I seem to always find time for fun trivia. I am really enjoying the daily and global challenges .|

Yesterday my sister came to vist me and we continued what has become "a Christmas Tradition". Our family is all gone except us so we make it a yearly even when she comes to visit. First, we went Christmas Shopping and i had my first cup of "Starbucks" coffee. Then we went to dinner with my husband. Finally, we put up the Christmas tree and laughed until our sides split about nothing at all. I look forward to this even every year and now the official Christmas season has begin.|

My favorite tv show "Duck Dynasty" is finishing the season this week. This makes me sad. I mean, who is going to entertain me now... with "everybody's happy happy happy" and "jack!", etc. Oh well, at least it gives me something to look forward to I suppose.|

We were out for the morning, leaving my sixteen year old son at home. We gave him a few jobs to do: get out of bed; empty the dishwasher; put the washing on the line; play on the Playstation; feed the cats etc. When we got back he had done all these jobs except the washing - he said that he couldn't find it to put it out. It was in the washing machine.|
