I watched a lot of Sesame Street when my son was little and this was one of my favorite songs from the show/movies. Sometimes it runs though my head, like today. It's a fun song. What Sesame Street character do you think you are most like? I'm probably most like Grover or Ernie. Especially SuperGrover or Grover the rude waiter at Charlie's Restaurant. Or Grover the taxi driver. "Yes it is I, your furry blue taxi driver. What can I do for you, sir?" Heeheehee.
It was freezing here and did not get above freezing today and won't tomorrow. And it was windy too. Like so many of our frigid days the sun was out, for all the good it did. It was a crummy sun. The pond is frozen and I can't find the pipe I break the ice with. I had trouble forcing myself to get all my outdoor chores done today. It's too cold!! I was behind on my steps too. Without hubby to walk with I had no desire to brave this frigid cold. I am trying to catch up with them.
My son got called to work today at the little country school a mile from our house. I made his breakfast and lunch before he left. I drove by the school on my way to pick up the mail at the rural post office and saw his little green Ford Ranger truck sitting in the school parking lot. I pictured him inside, surrounded by shiny little faces.................. being burned at the stake by a bunch of unruly 4th graders. LOL.
Do you ever go to the bathroom in the morning and look at yourself in the mirror and say,............. "Who is that?" LOL. Today I looked and didn't know who it was (just like always) PLUS I discovered that whoever it was had an ENORMOUS eyebrow hair. Where do these things come from? I mean you go to bed, you wake up the next morning, and some insane superhair decided to grow 6 inches overnight. From what? Eating too much spinach? I always worry that I will somehow miss one and go out and people I'm talking to will be staring at my antenna or my one hair fu-manchu while thinking, "Good grief, she's a superfreak!" If you have ever had one of these hairs you know they are not like normal hairs which split and break it you look at them. You almost need minor surgery with IV sedation and a pair of vice grips to get these hairs out. Your entire face stretches across the room before the offending hair finally pops out. It makes you almost afraid to sleep at night.
Porkie, my sweet little baby chinchilla, is very lovey-dovey today. He wants to be with "Mommy" and he loves me. He looks at me and flirts with me and nuzzles me and coos to me and decides that I need groomed, which should be obvious after the 6 inch long eye brow hair. Chinchillas use grooming as a sort of "Hello, I know you, we are buddies and pals and relatives." They groom you with their teeth and it is about as pleasant as being scraped with a razor blade. It hurts Porkie's feelings if he isn't allowed to do it so you have to succumb. So I had my face dermabraded today by my 1 pound less-than-antiseptic dermatologist. They do manicures and pedicures as well. LOL.
I had 52 emails left yesterday and got rid of 121.
In all seriousness, It was quite a thrill to be chosen as SP Community Leader of the month!! WOW!!

Another miserably cold day - 28 degrees and spitting snow but hubby and I went for 2 long walks anyway. We are insane!! LOL. Hubby told me that if you mouth breath your nose won't run. LOL. We saw Hondo running around. He is so cute.
Hubby worked on my washer today. Hasn't found what is wrong yet.
As everyone is aware I live in a very rural area. We are always hoping that someone will take pity on our poor, ignorant, redneck butts and put something nice here like a Target or Red Lobster or Sam's or practically anything. We can't afford to be picky. Just give us something new. It seldom ever happens though and when we do get something it's usually something I care nothing about.
The closest village to me is Texico and as I explained it's a hole in the wall. There is nuthin in Texico. The next closest village is Dix and it is 5.5 miles away. Dix is a thriving metropolis of 495 people. LOL. You know the kind of town - it has a tiny grade school, a tiny storage locker building, a tiny grain elevator, a tiny church, a tiny bank, a tiny park, a tiny lumber yard, a tiny grocery, a tiny convenience store, a tiny post office, a tiny motel, a tiny restaurant, a tiny funeral home, a tiny community center and a few odd business like a concrete yard ornament business, a snack distributor, an antique store, and a swimming pool manufacturer. I don't know a single sole in the entire area who owns an in-ground swimming pool.
Dix put in a senior citizen complex many years ago and promised the seniors who were willing to move 12 miles from the nearest mall and grocery that they would put in a little mini mall but it never happened. In fact, new businesses seldom come to Dix. Recently though Dix got a brand new business............................... a Caterpillar store. Just what we need - more slow moving vehicles on the roads. Tractors driving 15 miles for a tune up.
Much to our surprise Dix got another new business recently.............................. a "topless club". LOL. They are advertising for girls over 18 years old. The average age of people in this community is 49.7 years. Although a few of our adventurous grannies might be willing to go topless I dare say most men around here would pay them not to. I'm not sure where the topless staff and seedy clientele will come from.They advertise that they want to be the entertainment for bachelor parties. Maybe it's just me but I would never marry a man who would be interested in this kind of entertainment. It would be a deal breaker. The sheriff says they usually these places are scams and they come in waiting for the tiny village board and citizens to break some law attempting to get rid of them so they can sue them. The sheriff says nothing much can be done about it. What the new ho club has accomplished is it has gotten a lot of blue-haired polyester pant-suited old ladies off of their porch rockers and they are picketing outside of the new t/a bar. LOL.
