Today's Question(s):

Woo Hoo !! I just found out .... haven't found anything out recently that would make me go "Woo Hoo". Pretty ordinary around here these days

Buy them infrequently and rarely keep the ones I do buy.

Mostly.


Bonus Question:

Hubby's real efficient when it comes to fixing things, including squeaks. So, nothing. Last thing was the side gate, but no more.


Inquiring Minds Question:

Powder or liquid Laundry Soap ? Powder
Liquid or sheet fabric softener ? Rarely use the dryer here and mostly just to finish drying something off. Hang up our clothes 99% of the time so I don't buy any fabric softener. Don't find we really need it.

So that is our clue to mow
But first lets see how many of our QOTD family are up and ready to answer

Today's Question(s):

Woo Hoo !! I just found out _________ ? drawing a blank here - not enough sleep or coffee (thank you darling Shredder for NOT letting mom sleep in)

Bonus Question:

What was the last "offer" you just couldn't refuse ? in my line of work, I won't refuse 'any offer' lol


Just for Fun:

What is the "squeakiest" thing in your home ? Shredder's rubber duck Love waking up thinking there's a mouse in the house, even though I've never had one.


Inquiring Minds Question:

Get up and dance or sit and tap your feet ? Too tired to dance, so I'll have to settle for foot tapping.
Read a book or watch TV ? Work and check what's on TV - on Saturdays they sometimes play old movies I haven't seen in a while. I can work with the TV on, but not read a book and work.
Powder or liquid Laundry Soap ? I'd say the Sra. probably uses powder. When I did my own in the States I used liquid.
Liquid or sheet fabric softener ? No clue other than my clothes smell good (I used liquid also when I did my own laundry).


Today in History:
1794 - U.S. Post Office established Great idea at the time but don't think anyone back then knew what was coming
1886 - Dr. John S. Pemberton first sold his secret elixir. It was originally used for medicinal purposes. So Dr. Pemberton went to the right place to sell his new product: Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Pemberton's medicine was sold to make people feel better and it still does that today. It's Coca-Cola. p.s. 1st Coca-Coke contained cocaine. hmm no wonder it made folks feel "peppy" I actually knew that (albiet not date) - though most people probably did. I just remember reading a long time ago about it and going 'whoa' Then of course was switched out for caffeine, something I absolutely have to have first thing in the AM to function.
1877 - 1st Westminster Dog Show held

Enjoy your Saturday everyone. Must have more coffee and get some work knocked out. Happy early mother's day to all you/us moms! I always forget the date because down here it's in December, but did video chat with DS last night and he reminded me so we're going to hook up again tomorrow. Did get an early present from him by being able to watch and hear him play piano Love these free video chats!
