Hey You Want a Peanut

I think I am going to have to give up peanut eating. There was the problem with salmonella and now this. A friend shared this with me.

A tour bus driver is driving with a bus load of seniors down a highway when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady.

She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up.
After about 15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.

She repeats this gesture about five more times.
When she is about to hand him another batch again he asks the little old lady, 'Why don't you eat the peanuts yourself?'.

'We can't chew them because we've no teeth', she replied.

The puzzled driver asks, 'Why do you buy them then?'

The old lady replied, 'We just love the chocolate around them.'

Uh….. want a peanut?

Done Enough

Well my visitor's room is done enough. Those who saw it in real life not just photos have agreed it is nothing I would have ever picked. I like it more each day. You can't tell from the photo but my neighbor put in a rock stairway in her yard and my window frames it perfectly and looks really cool. It just needs visitors now. The room is so small I really couldn't take very good photos and yes that is the excuse I am sticking with. Anyway here are the photos.

Turning 50

A few months ago my friend Shawna reached a milestone. She turned 50. She was a real trooper. We made her wear a tiara to dinner announcing she was 50. We teased her every chance we got and she played along. Now that she is 50 she can now look forward to singing these songs.

The Bee Gees— How Can You Mend a Broken Hip.

Roberta Flack— The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face.

Johnny Nash— I Can’t See Clearly Now.

Leslie Gore— It’s My Procedure, and I’ll Cry If I Want To.

As for me.....well I'm still singing a different tune.

Stepping Out

Oh dear I am stepping out of my comfort zone. I decided to redo my guest room or as princess calls it the visitor's room. I hope it turns out. A couple of weeks ago I found the perfect and I mean perfect comforter. It was tan with pink flowers and lots of greenery. Well after buying it I had buyers remorse so bad it didn't even make it home with me. SO I have been looking for something ever since. It would be much easier if I wasn't so cheap. Anyway I decided to bag the flowery look and go for a more masculine look. I found a comforter and curtains. It is nothing I would have ever given a second look to before. Yikes. I will post a pic when it is all put together. Oh I do hope it turns out!!!! Otherwise I will have to step back in my comfortable zone.
