Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter 1 Reply

So it begins. Started snowing yesterday afternoon, with temps in the 20's, though it was sunny and 70 on Saturday, and still snowing. Should be about 3" when it stops around noon. I did take the precaution of putting the snow pusher and snow shovel…Continue

Good riddance to Summer... 5 Replies

Too hot, too dry, too smoky, but no fires within 30 miles. Garden a bust. But...no wasps, hornets or yellow jackets. Guess there's an upside to anything. Hope yours was better.Continue

Many years ago when I was far from even being 50, I I kept trying to unlock my white Granada in a parking lot.   I couldn't figure out why the key didn't open the door.  I did the same as you Syble.  I finally looked inside and saw green interior - mine was white!  I was stunned and confused at the same time and quickly looked around for MY car.  I also went shopping at a mall and came out looking for my car - that was before they had key fobs and a signal locating your car.  I went up and down the rows and couldn't find it.  I couldn't believe  I couldn't find it and thought it must have been stolen.  Then I remembered, I parked it in the back lot.  Geesh - I wasn't that old then either!

No worries about the wrong car...only 1 or 2 30 year old white Subaru Legacies in this town. Oh...take the discount and run.

I can relate to that.  I got into a wrong car leaving the courthouse one day.  When I sat down and went to put my purse in the passenger seat, I noticed a briefcase sitting there on leather seats.  I didn't have leather seats or a briefcase.  But hey... it was the right color. I exited as hurriedly as I could and hoped no one had noticed.

This could happen to any of us...
$5.37! That's what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bell said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and
something that used to be a Jolly Rancher. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Elmo hairdo said the hardest thing anyone has ever said to me. He said, "It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount."
I turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the sound of change hitting the counter in front of me. "Only $4.68" he said cheerfully.
I stood there stupefied. I am 56, not even 60 yet? A mere child! Senior citizen?
I took my burrito and walked out to the truck wondering what was wrong with Elmo. Was he blind? As I sat in the truck, my blood began to boil. Old? Me?
I'll show him, I thought. I opened the door and headed back inside. I strode to the counter, and there he was waiting with a smile.
Before I could say a word, he held up something and jingled it in front of me, like I could be that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler?
"Dude! Can't get too far without your car keys, eh?" I stared with utter disdain at the keys. I began to rationalize in my mind.!
"Leaving keys behind hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone!"
I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key into the ignition, but it wouldn't turn. What now? I checked my keys and tried another. Still nothing.
That's when I noticed the purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. I had no purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror.
Then, a few other objects came into focus. The car seat in the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all over the floorboard. A partially eaten doughnut on the dashboard.
Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of the alien vehicle.
Moments later I was speeding out of the parking lot, relieved to finally be leaving this nightmarish stop in my life. That is when I felt it, deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach growled and churned, and I reached to grab my burrito, only it was nowhere to be found.
I swung the truck around, gathered my courage, and strode back into the restaurant one final time. There Elmo stood, draped in youth and black nail polish. All I could think was, "What is the world coming to?"
All I could say was, "Did I leave my food and drink in here"? At this point I was ready to ask a Boy Scout to help me back to my vehicle, and then go straight home and apply for Social Security benefits.
Elmo had no clue. I walked back out to the truck, and suddenly a young lad came up and tugged on my jeans to get my attention.. He was holding up a drink and a bag. His mother explained, "I think you left this in my truck by mistake."
I took the food and drink from the little boy and sheepishly apologized.
She offered these kind words: "It's OK. My grandfather does stuff like this all the time."
All of this is to explain how I got a ticket doing 85 in a 40. Yes, I was racing some punk kid in a Toyota Prius. And no, I told the officer, I'm not too old to be driving this fast.
As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway down the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300 speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and covered up my legs with a blankey.
The good news was I had successfully found my way home.
P.S.. Save the earth...... It's the only planet with chocolate!!!!!

Reporter asked to the CEO of a fast growing business firm .
"Sir ! what is the secret behind success of your firm?"
CEO: " Well ! actually all the credit goes to managers of different departments. They are hard working, dedicated ,honest and all of the above ,they are punctual".
Reporter: "But it is almost impossible that all of your employees are punctual .How do you motivate them to be on time?"
CEO: "very simple...there are total 19 managers, all of them come office by their own car. We have a strict policy about parking. It is absolutely free for the first 18 cars but there is a charge of $100 for the 19th one.
