Today's Question(s):
Do you have anything you really really want to get done this weekend ?

Yep, I have a list for this long week-end. Building a flower bed for the DW is toward the top.

lol What are the chances any of your list will get done ?
Very high. Memorial Day week-end, this area gets over-run with tourists and I have learned to just stay at home and peck away at the "Honey-Do" list and save myself the frustration of going anywhere.


Bonus Question:
Do you wear bifocals ?

No


How about reading glasses ?
Yes.

When did you first notice "your arms had gotten shorter" ?
A couple of years ago, I was standing on an extension ladder re-wiring a motor in a plant, when the cold hard truth hit... I couldn't read the nameplate or schematics in the dim light up there. I had to come down and talk a young apprentice through it from the ground. I went to the eye Dr. that afternoon and walked out able to read small print again.

Extra Credit Question:
The "Grill Fairy" is going to stop by your house this weekend.
What yummy item do you want her to bring for your grill ?

Sanders Brown Bratwurst. Oh they are to die for, and there is nothing better hot off the gril on a Summer afternoonl.

Just for Fun:
Did you ever "cut" or "skip" a class when you were in school ?

Guilty. Really, really guilty.

If you see a penny on the ground will you pick it up ?
Not usually

Other than change, have you ever found money on the ground?

Found a $20 once blowing down the sidewalk.

How many different kinds of Pickles are in your fridge ?
2 I think. I never touch the nasty little things, but everybody else in the house loves them.

Have you ever worn a "Tiara" ?
Yes... Don't ask . Picture a 6'2" tall, 225# Construction worker with a mustache in platform heels, leather mini-skirt, black fishnet hose, one of those frilly hooker tops, long blond wig and a tiara. OK, you can quite laughing and/or gagging now. I went to a Church Halloween party once dressed like that . The most disturbing part I think, is that I knew people who had those things that would actually fit me.

Hi all, and CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who participated in the Top Ten Reasons to Skinny Dip contest yesterday!

Today's Question(s):

Anything you really want to get done this weekend? Rest
Chances any of your list will get done? Not going so well so far

Wear bifocals? Yes
Lined or no lined lenses? No lines
Reading glasses? No
When did you first notice "your arms had gotten shorter"?
I didn't! My father-in-law is a physician and was giving one of my kids a summer camp physical. When he got to the part about reading the vision chart, I thought I'd be funny and jump up there with my kid and read it too. I couldn't. He moved up to the next biggest line - nope. My father-in-law's jaw dropped, he then moved up to the next biggest line - nope again. He said "you need glasses" and so I got them!

The "Grill Fairy" is going to stop by your house this weekend. What yummy item do you want her to bring for your grill?
I'd like it be filet and grilled vegetables but alas, it's going to be burgers. Sigh...

Did you ever "cut" class? High School, no - College, yes.
If you see a penny on the ground will you pick it up? Probably not.
Have you ever found money on the ground? Lots!
How many different kinds of pickles are in your fridge? 3 - 4
Have you ever worn a "Tiara"? I had one as a kid.

equanimity \ee-kwuh-NIM-uh-tee; ek-wuh-\ , noun:
Evenness of mind; calmness; composure I ain't feeling it today.

National Taffy Day - mmmm, no
National Pickle Day - yes
Tiara Day - I don't have mine anymore - waaaahhh!
Sea Turtle Day - we got 'em, we protect 'em
Lucky Penny Day - pick it up

In response to a couple of questions I had about my post above.

Yes, I do have a couple of photos. None of them include the Tiara though for some reason. My scanner doesn't work or else I would post one, Everybody I know personally has gotten great joy out of laughing their heads off at them, I might as well spread the joy here as well.
