Thank you for stopping by my Blog Page. For those of you who know me this is a little different than my usual but I was prompted by a dear friend to blog about this funny story.
So here goes let me know what you think!
Bill owns a company that manufactures and installs car wash systems. Bill 's company installed a car wash system in Frederick , Md . Now, understand that these are complete systems, including the money changer and money taking machines.
The problem started when the new owner complained to Bill that he was losing significant amounts of money from his coin machines each week.
He went as far as to accuse Bill 's employees of having a key to the boxes and ripping him off. Bill just couldn't believe that his people would do that, so they setup a camera to catch the thief in action. Well, they did catch him on film!
That's a bird sitting on the change slot of the machine.
The bird had to go down into the machine, and back up inside to get to the money!
That's three quarters he has in his beak! Another amazing thing is that it was not just one bird -- there were several working together. Once they identified the thieves, they found over$4000 in quarters on the roof of the car wash and more under a nearby tree.
And you thought you heard of everything by now!! !!
And to think the phrase 'bird brain' is associated with being dumb. Not these birds.
I am always amazed when I here someone say that animals are dumb.
I think they are smarter than we give them credit for.
At least I have always given them credit for being too smart for their own good.! LOL
First and foremost I would like to say thank you for visiting my Blog!
I know that so many of us here on Spark have many friends that we have made along our journey. Some of us are just starting out and some of us have been on spark for several months to some for years. I am still in the month range. MY Spark Anniversary is September 22. So I have a 5 months before I jump to the year range. But in my 7 months here on Spark I have made some pretty fantastic friends along the way. They are what I call my support system, as I hope to support them as well.
I often think wouldn't it be great to take a road trip and start traveling across the USA and meet all of these friends to give each and everyone of them my hugs. And tell them how much they mean to me and my success.
And as I was thinking that through I thought I would need to take a plane or a ship at some point because I have made friends in other countries that I could not drive or get to without getting a little wet.
Wow! my trip is getting pretty long but what a trip it would be.
So, this is for all my Spark Friends I have made and all the friends I will be adding to my list as the pounds disappear and time goes by.
Thank you to each and everyone of you out there in Sparkland.
And who knows maybe we will meet someday and you will get one of those BIG WARM WELCOME HUGS from me!
First of all I would like to say thank you for stopping by and reading my thoughts.
And there you go these are my thoughts. You can agree or disagree that is your choice.
But, these are my thoughts.
What does it prove when you say cuss words? How does it make you feel? Does it empower you? Why do we let those words out of our mouths? Now I understand that words slip out of our mouth and we can't get it back, we can say sorry but you can't fix it. When I am typing out words I have the choice to fix the words. And I am always fixing my words. I wouldn't want to hurt somebodies feelings on purpose just as I wouldn't want to offend someone with bad words. That is just the way I am. But lately I have read some very offensive Blogs and I wondered how did that get posted? Why didn't it get blocked? I am a leader of a team here on Spark People. And it just so happens I was trying to post some information about a mushroom. The only way I can type it out is by putting a space in the word.
Sh itaki mushrooms. Now that isn't cussing that is a real mushroom that offers real health benefits, but I couldn't post it unless I put that space in there. WHY?
Why is it that someone can post a very offensive blog using offensive language and I can't talk about a mushroom? There is something very wrong with this picture.
Let's try to be aware of what we say and what we type maybe it can be cleaned up so even my grandchildren can read it.
Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts.
You have a great day and a better tomorrow because you can't get it back!
I am sitting at the counter in my kitchen. Working on the computer with Spark stuff! I am very involved with giving an answer when I look up from the keyboard to see a County Sheriff vehicle driving down our runway. For those of you who don't know me I live on a private airstrip about 1800 feet long. This is for small aircraft.
I look further ahead of the sheriff and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a horse on the runway. I grabbed my coat and a bag of carrots and proceed out the back door towards the runway. Now I see there are 5 sherrif's cars up and down the airstrip. I guess this poor horse was a fugative. And they were bound and determined to get him. But none of the sheriffs had what I had.
The bag of carrots!
They got their horse. Horse got his carrots and I went home to blog about it. No Easter bunny here! LOL
First of all I would like to say thank you for stopping by my blog.
This is one job I do not like to do. Although, now that I have said that I don't like to do this job. I Iron all pants, shirts, tops, yes t-shirts get it too! I am one of those people that can't stand to go out in public with wrinkled clothes. I have collected some of the very old time irons that weigh 4+ lbs and you need to set it on a wood stove to heat it. This is just to remind me that my Rowenta Iron isn't all that bad. LOL
My G kids will purposely leave their clothes here so I can wash and iron them. My daughter does not iron much of anything. The kids say the clothes feel like new when I do them. So I get the job. YEA!!!!
At least they appreciate the time it takes for me to iron their clothes.
Well, I better get back to the ironing board, thanks for reading about the chore I'm not crazy about. But I do it anyway!
