3 Days = 15 Days, what??????

Saturday, July 20, 2013

15 days ago the carpenter started on our room. We removed EVERYTHING (including my satellite which made me off-line). She said the job would take about 3 days & we are 15 days & still not finished. The floor is finished, so we moved the satellite equipment & desk back & hooked everything up yesterday. In fairness to her, unforeseen problems came up & slowed the progress. She is supposed to come today & put the baseboards back. After that we will move the rest of the furniture back & I will start putting books back on the shelves (a lot are going to the library for their book sale), dishes back in the china cabinet, rehang the curtains, etc.

I am glad to be back. Missed all my friends. Stayed the same weight (thank goodness) even without using the tracker.

    Delays always happen at our house ... if a project finished on time I'd think there was something wrong with it.

I did not forget

Friday, June 28, 2013

I got all my onions pulled, pulled the weeds from around the tomato plants and have hung the onions with "kite" string on my porch. I did not forget a couple of people who commented on my last post about the onions that I would take pictures & try to explain how I did this. Now I am having trouble loading the pictures onto my PC from my camera. Because I am a senior citizen I seem to be "electronically challenged". emoticon I will figure it out even if I have to get one of my grandchildren come do it for me. emoticon

    Hi again, I have missed your blogs. I too am a technology Challenged senior about to become 3 score years and ten. Right now still 3 score years and 9 at the moment.
Looking forward to Anniversary #50 in august.
You are lucky to have grand's close by. One of them is almost 11 and has never seen the state where her Dad was born, OUR Nevada DIL has not either. Others are in CA-too far. Hoping to get here. Upstate NY family but maybe not our son, I hope all 10 of us will be here for out first family reunion.
Happy to see your smiling face once again. I too will be looking for your onions. I use almost 10 pounds a week. We love them Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Weather (joke)

Thursday, June 20, 2013


Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the tuck and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back; now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."

My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?"

And that's how the fight started...

Airport Check-In

Monday, June 17, 2013

>>It happened at a New York Airport . This is hilarious. I wish I had
>>the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United
>>Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while
>>making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably
>>deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to
>>deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.
>>
>>A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was
>>re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.
>>
>>Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped
>>his ticket on the counter and said,
>>
>>"I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."
>>
>>The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try help you,
>>but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm
>>sure we'll be able to work something out."
>>
>>The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the
>>passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"
>>
>>Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address
>>microphone. "May I have your attention, please?", she began, her
>>voice heard clearly throughout the terminal."We have a passenger
>>here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him
>>with his identity, please come to Gate 14".
>>
>>With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man
>>glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said,
>>"F**k You!"
>>
>>Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have
>>to get in line for that, too."

    I will be travelling by plane next month and hope that the people I travel with have the same easy going attitude this story portrays. I can never understand why people get so mad at the service staff.

Some of the YouTube videos about the safety procedure spiel are also entertaining!

    I'm betting that dates back pre-9-11 too. Doubt there's be too much levity now-a-days. But it's funny to think about for sure!!!

    This is hysterical but it must be a joke. The company would not allow her to say those things and she would be fired. You did use United which happens to be the worst airline in my opinion. I had a three decade business that required me to fly out of town frequently. The 4 times I used United the flights were delayed more than three hours and one was canceled. Never booked a flight with them again.
