TGIF - 11/01/12 07:16 PM

"Age is of no importance unless you are a cheese."
Billie Burke

You won't be saying that when you're 65. 

Mafia Valentine Verses

My love for you... it came and went.
So your feet are now in wet cement.

I'm here To fulfill your fondest wishes
Now that your husband sleeps with the fishes.

Lie down with me -- it's my final offa,
Or you'll be lying wit' Jimmy Hoffa.

I picked up dis card from a slim selection
But that's all they offer here in witness protection.

Be my Valentine, and we can do it execution-style.

Cinderella got her fella, with a slipper made of glass;
So please be mine, Valentine, or I'll have to whack your......backside. 

Violets are blue, roses are red,
I blew up your car -- So why ain't you dead?

The day we met, my little pet, I knew with just one look
You'd bear a son, and now that's done, So shut your mouth and cook!

Youse da greatest. Youse da best.
But you're as untouchable as Elliot Ness.

Lust is fleeting, true love lingers.
Be mine always and you'll keep your fingers.

Hope da chocolates is good, but y'know, dis ain't really what a guy's heart looks like.

When a goon makes you die,
Cuz you told him goodbye -- that's amore!

Next time you're invited to a boring social event, try one of these excuses to why you can't attend:


... I don't want to leave my comfort zone. ... I have some real hard words to look up in the dictionary. ... I have to answer all of my "occupant" letters. ... I have to fluff my shower cap. ... I have to fulfill my potential. ... I left my body in my other clothes. ... I made an appointment with a cuticle specialist. ... I'll be looking for a parking space. ... I'm being deported. ... I'm converting my calendar watch from Julian to Gregorian. ... I'm giving nuisance lessons at a convenience store. ... I'm going down to the bakery to watch the buns rise. ... I'm sandblasting my oven. ... I'm taking a crash course in punk totem pole carving. ... I'm worried about my vertical hold. ... I've come down with a really horrible case of something or other. ... I've got a Friends of the Rutabaga meeting. ... it's too close to the turn of the century. ... my Millard Filmore Fan Club meets then. ... my plot to take over the world is thickening. ... my subconscious says no. ... none of my socks match. ... the grunion are running. ... the last time I went, I never came back. ... the monsters haven't turned blue yet; I have to eat more dots.

Good morning everyboomie.  wave

Gads I'm in a hurry and my mind is a blank!  headscratch

Like I said, the first thing they taught me in art class was how to draw a blank, and I got an A+.  crazy

My teacher said I was inspired.
And believe it or not, I've even gotten better with age.  grin

The thing that has not gotten any better with age, unfortunately, is inspiration.  slapforehead

If perspiration really makes up for it though, I should be almost back to even. 

Well, almost nearly, but.....not.....quite.....hardly.  razz

I’ve gotta be getting close though. thumbsup Yup

Another 5:00 start today. tired UGH!

Have a happy day everybody!

Good morning everybody!

Sorry I couldn't say hello yesterday. Headache was stonger than my will... Glad it's gone.

Joe: that is really too early to get up. Tell them!

Ana: so glad you finally came out of that corner. Guess it's running with the dogs and then Zumba for you? Enjoy!

Manxman: happy day to you too!

Good morning Sue and Haroula and Gerry and Venus

Good morning to all coming in after me. It's nice, sunny weather here in Switzerland but awfully cold. I'am not used to that.

Midge: I hope you'll find a perfect 2bedroom apartment for you and that you will be happy there and glad you are rid of the "old" Landlady. Tell her she's a "Bloedi Chue" (that's Swiss German, she won't understand). It means bl... cow.

We sold our old (12 years old) car to the daughter of a friend of mine and hubby just went to the garage to get our new car. I'am a bit sad today to have to leave my old car. We woman always are so emotional and are getting personal ties to "things", in my case a car. I was always patting his rump after the 8 hour drive from and to Italy. At 2 p.m. friends-daughters-hubby will come to collect the old car, and I fear I have to shed a few tears then. Sigh frown

Despite of all this, I wish everybody a happy and wonderful day!

Happy day to All! fall

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 11:56 AM

I can't believe it's already Friday! Dunno where my week went.

Good news is that the phone pole workers are back on the adjoining street. They started Wednesday and disappeared all day yesterday. So we get to see what they are up to today on the morning walk.

Bought 2 awesome blankies at the thrift store. They just got them in the day before (brand new in box). They are double sided plush (short soft) and feel like soft fur. Nice satin edging all around. Only paid 20 bucks each (bargained with one of the workers who knows me from years and years). Usually they won't discount NEW just arrived stuff, but I'm special. grin Washed and dried them. Washing was easy, drying not so much. Because they are two separate pieces joined by the edging, the rolled into a tight ball in the dryer and I had to go out every 10 minutes to undo the ball. Incredibly heavy when wet, like a comforter. But they came out looking fantastic, just like they went in, no fuzz, no lint on the dryer screen, awesome.

Anyway, looked them up on line and found that they are currently selling for 90 bucks each! I think the 20 was a good deal. Will be great for cold winter nights on the bed or just to wrap up in. I'm thrilled. penguin

Guess I overdid my Smilie permission for today, so I'am signing off now. Got to change into nice cloth, because I'am going to an opening of a ceramist friend's exhibition tonight (with the new car - yay!). See you all tomorrow. Happy TGIF! Love,

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 12:33 PM

Good morning boomies. yay No Zumba for me this morning. I woke with a blinding migraine that I knew was not going to be helped by jumping around so I went back to bed. I will take the dogs to the park after I have some lunch.

Sue, Haroula, Gerry, Venus, have a great day!

Evelyn, congrats on the new car! woot Mine is ten years old in a couple months and sadly in need of replacement also. I know what you mean on getting attached to them. hearts

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 02:26 PM

Hi boomies. I worked this morning and checked out an apartment but it's not what I'm looking for. I think this is gonna be harder than I thought. Very few choices. I'm off to get some moving boxes, then to my chiropractor, then maybe to see another place to call home. I hope you're all having a great day. Be back later.

Ana, hugs to you. I hope the romp with the dogs squashes that nasty headache.

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 02:51 PM

Back from dentist for the 6 month check-up. All OK whew. would be celebration with some hot pepper chipies but mouth kinda sore. Maybe later.

Beauty day-again. Warm and sunny and rainy on weekend hooray gaming weather.

Good for you Midge. She must pay you 100$/day befor the month end. Just think, you will be celebrating the holidays in a new place.

I'm cooking a vegge dish, it's lima bean bake and it sounds good -we shall see.

It's Doom time all

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 04:21 PM

Yankee Clipper -- I never heard of a lima bean bake. It sounds delicious! broccoli

Midge -- I know this must be so stressful for you. Not to mention financially "inconvenient". But anyone who wants to charge you $100 per day if you can't be moved on time is somebody you really need to get away from. I'm saying a prayer that you find the perfect place to move into. (I'm not sure what she's doing is legal. Have you checked those laws in your state??)

Nan, I can't imagine having to go for walks in 19 degree temps. I shiver just thinking about it. Sassy has a good friend. catrub

Ana, sorry about the migraine. I hope you feel better soon.

I forgot how hard it is to walk that far. My legs hurt and I get very tired. Which just goes to show me that I need to keep doing it till it doesn't hurt anymore... laugh Went to the Dunkin Donuts first to get a breakfast sandwich. Then went bowling and found I am really terrible at it. I didn't realize that my arms had lost strength as well - My right arm hurts now too! But it was fun and had the added advantage of also exercising various muscles.

So, a terrific day so far. Hope everyone else is enjoying themselves. smile

Sorta what a deal, enjoy!!

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 06:30 PM

Sharon B it's amazing how quickly we loose strength after we age a bit. When my last horse was buried -in my front yard btw- that happened to me. No more riding, jumping, dressage, but mostly throwing hay. Now I work out dailey, even if I don't feel like it.

The lima bake is pretty good and here it is:
Cook the dried limas
Saute onion and green pepper
Add cooked or canned tomatoes
Chili powder, salt, pepper -I used chili
Pour into casserole
Sprinkle with grated American Cheese
Bake 350 for 5 or so min
I used alot of onions and green peppers as they give a good flavor. A vegge meal

Remember to change clocks tomorrow night. Back

Re: TGIF - 11/02/12 07:54 PM

Sharon, I think I'm going with a 2 bedroom apartment not far from here. It's certainly big enough for what I'm bringing. I just can't wait to move out from under my landlady's eyes. She's gonna miss me. smile I was a great tenant.... no parties, no loud noises, I'm a neat freak, what more can you ask for? I just want to bring my son over to the apartment to see what he thinks. It won't change my mind though.

I am feeling much more normal now. Dogs and I are walked/run and I spent the last 4 hours cooking nonstop to fill the fridge with my usual side dishes. We all really missed them this week.

L4L, how is your gaming day going?

Midgie, any small houses or condos to rent? Have you checked if there is roomate service that maybe you can find someone like you to share a nice place with? My daughter and her fiance rent out a room in their house to help with the mortgage.

Yankee, I am soaking an array of beans, peas and lentils right now to make chili soup tomorrow.
I am glad your dentist visot went well.

SpaceQ, how you doing? hearts

Sharon, so glad you did the walk and bowling! It will get easier each time. yay

Nan, have a fun evening. A walk with the dogs always makes me feel better.

Ana what's normal??? lol Glad you are back to it and that you had a good run/walk with the dogs. Bet the rest of the house are glad too. Hope the head is better.

Midge glad you have found a nice place and that it is the size you are looking for. happydance Night and sleep well.
