GentleThoughts for Today

Birds of a feather flock together . . . and then c--p on your car.

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

He who hesitates is probably right.

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble..

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

As a trucker stops for a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out
her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door.

The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and
are losing some of your load."

The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street.

When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again.

She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door.

Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the
says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your

Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the

At the third red light, the same thing happens again.

All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, and knocks
the truck door.

The trucker rolls down the window.. Again she says "Hi, my name is
and you are losing some of your load!"

When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next

When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs
to the blonde.

He knocks on her window, and after she lowers it, he says...

"Hi, my name is Mark, it's winter in WISCONSIN and

I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!

Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. So one day Farmer John called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."

"What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.

"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"

So the next day he had the county workers go out and erect a sign that said: SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING

Three days later Farmer John called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. The School Crossing sign seems to make them go even faster." So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY

That really sped them up. So Farmer John called and called and called every day for three weeks.
Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own sign?"

The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign." He was going to let Farmer John do just about anything in order to get him to stop calling everyday to complain. The sheriff got no more calls from Farmer John.

Three weeks later, curiosity got the best of the sheriff and he decided to give Farmer John a call. "How's the problem with those drivers. Did you put up your sign?"

"Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got to go. I'm very busy." He hung up the phone.

The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to himself, "I'd better go out there and take a look at that sign. It might be something that WE could use to slow down drivers." So the sheriff drove out to Farmer John's house, and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign.

It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood: NUDIST COLONY - Go slow and watch out for the chicks!

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Now, what wuz I gunna talk about? think

At 12:30 at night I'm not really leaning towards a very long dialogue.

I'm rather leaning towards the bedroom actually.

I'm mean I'm really leaning towards the bedroom. tired

I'm almost horizontal, I'm leaning so much. sleep


What's that buzzing noise? shocked

I thought I would get the diner started, and then go do some gaming, but I started the post about a half hour ago, and I have a bald spot on my head now from scratching my noggin so much.

I may not have a hair left by the time I finish it. rolleyes

On the bright side though, I won't have to cut my hair anymore.

On the other side.... headscratch ..... Oops, it's bright too because of the glare of the sun.

I guess I don't have to worry because it'll be ALL-bright. wink

Nobody can ever call me Harry either.

They don't call me Harry now though. duh

Why would they, I'm not Harry?

I'm Confused......and tired. tired

Have a harry happy day everyboomie.

Thumping Good Thursday ya'll puppy

I seem to be in a wake-up-early-and-then-take-a-10 o'clock-nap cycle. Not a normal routine for me at all. The plus is I get to see hubby before he leaves for work, but the downside is by 9 a.m. I'm walking into walls.

I've had several cups of coffee but apparently someone stole all the wake-up power from ours.

Back after my brain wakes up. wave

Re: Thursday - 10/04/12 11:30 AM

Thanks for the chuckles Joe! I really needed some this morning. Long tale of strange goings on with that stupid empty house. After Hazmat put up the yellow caution tape so no one would enter because of a 'reported' mercury spill and contamination, no one has. Good. Been almost 2 months now. So yesterday, I get a visit from 2 guys supposedly from some 'cleanup' firm. Very not believable. Didn't tell them anything except the one phone number I'm sure they already had of the 'troublemaker' who really wants access. They asked all sorts of questions and I finally told them to call the Hazmat guys and gave them the business card.

Creepy because THEY said they were there to inspect and then if anything spilled they would call Hazmat????? Struck me really wrong with that one. AND the ID on one guy's pocket plastic clip was a California ID Card. Not a business ID a general, run of the mill ID card Calif. issues if you don't have a driver's license! AND the other guy couldn't seem to find HIS ID. Ohhhhhh. I hope I never see them again. AND they wanted MY last name. Nope...I think the troublemaker is up to no good again sending guys pretending to be 'officials' in hopes of getting into the house. What a mess! I'm so wanting to run and hide.

Good morning everybody. wave

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, but we are going all the way up to an uncomfortable 88 degrees later. The good news is that it's breezy which is making it real nice today. yes

This weekend we will be all the way down in the 50s for a high. yay

I can't wait. I guess Nan and Ana are sending me some of their weather. woot

I need cold weather to kill the tall grasses and weeds in the creek. yes

I'm going to work at 1:00 today. It's a short day (7hrs work), so I'll get off at 9:00 which means getting home at around 9:15, eating, showering & winding down, then getting to bed maybe by 10:30 to 11:00 and getting back up at 3:30 to be back at work by 5am. shocked

To paraphrase all of that; UGH!!! slapforehead

I hope you all have a muchos joyas day. grin

Cats live into their 20's and dogs well into their teens. I can't imagine rolling out of bed in the AM and no furries to muddy up the day.

Wow, Joe that's a rugged schedual. I have to be at the mechanics tomorrow at 9AM and that's causing a bit anxiety. Miss S-10 gets her physical and oil change.

Re: Thursday - 10/04/12 12:57 PM

Yup auntigram, I tried my best to get identification that would help. Name and address on the 'forms (which they were hesitant to let me hold) was from Los Angeles, 2 hours from here. ID wasn't a business, NO license plate on their ratty truck, and they were really hinky.

I know they were from the creepy guy who is trying to take over all the old guy owns. Had to be. I looked into getting some sort of restraining order but the cost is awful and I'd have to have a 'court hearing' first. Not worth it. I'll just tell the next 'inquirer' that they should wait on my porch while I call the cops. That should do it.

I just hate that I'm in the middle of something that I shouldn't be. OH and I did call the Hazmat guy and he said he didn't send them, doesn't know who they are, agreed with me that they aren't who they say the are, etc. Yup. He is now alerted in case they call him (I gave them his number). I doubt they will ever do that. They were 'phishing' for info on me and the old caretaker and trying to get access to the property. Yup.

Good afternoon. I stopped in this morning but apparently forgot to submit my post. oops

Off to the vet for a nailtrim and then to the park to run the dogs. The they are getting a much needed bath. After that I will winterize the yard and trim my flowers and a couple trees. It looks like this is the last nice day for awhile.

Hope you all are enjoying the day.

A belated Hello everyone, I have been lurking briefly and them off to the busy-ness of days, lol. Hubby added a new uncovered porch, very small but bigger than top step would be and stairs. He is beating his leg to death trying to beat the rains. Been very dry here which is unusual. Was in the 30's the past two mornings and clear but after about ten it fogged in and warmed up some. Off I go. Happy Gaming!! wave

It went from a lovely sunny day to a rainy windy chilly day this afternoon, so the dogs and I walked in the rain and I cleaned up my yard in the rain. lol If you can't beat em, join em. grin

I am suffering from a severe case of ADD this evening and can't find anything that interests me for more thahn five minutes. The dogs are happy though since I have spent most of the evening grooming them. They love the attention.
