"Being a philosopher, I have a problem for every solution." -- Robert Zend

Diary Of A Blonde Newlywed

Dear Diary,

Now home from honeymoon and settled in our new home, it's fun to cook for Bob. Today I made an angel food cake and the recipe said, "Beat 12 eggs separately." Well, I didn't have enough bowls to do that, so I had to borrow enough bowls to beat the eggs in. The cake turned out fine.

We wanted a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said, serve without dressing." So I didn't dress. But, Bob happened to bring a friend home for supper that night. Did they ever look startled when I served the salad.

I decided to serve rice and found a recipe which said, "Wash thoroughly before steaming the rice." So I heated some water and took a bath before steaming the rice. Sounded kinda silly in the middle of the week. I can't say it improved the rice any.

Today Bob asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said, "Prepare ingredients, then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving." I hunted all over the garden by my mom's. So I tossed my salad into the bed of lettuce and stood over there one hour so the dog would not take it. Bob came over and asked if I felt all right. I wonder why?

Today I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said, "Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat it." Beat it I did, right over to my mom's house. There must have been something wrong with the recipe, because when I came back home again it looked the same as when I left it.

Bob went shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday. I'm sure I don't know how hens dress for Sunday. I never noticed back on the farm, but I found a doll dress and some little shoes. I thought the hen looked real cute. When Bob saw it, I wondered why he counted to 10.

Today Bob's folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast, but all we had in the icebox, was hamburger. So I put it in the oven and set the controls for roast. Must be the oven, because it still came out hamburger.

Good night, Dear Diary.

This has been an exciting week. I am eager for tomorrow to come, so I can try a new recipe on Bob.

This is a letter from an Oklahoma mother to her son.

Dear Son:

I’m writing this slow, because I know you don’t read too fast. We don’t live where we did when you left. Your dad read that most accidents happen within twenty miles of home, so we moved thirty miles away. I won’t be able to send you the address because that last family that lived here took the numbers with them so they would not have to change their address.

This new home has a washing machine. The first day I put four of your dad’s shirts in it and pulled the chain, and they started going around ok, but then they disappeared. I think I must find a new stopper for it. It only rained twice this week. The first time for four days, and the second time for three days.

The coat you wanted me to send you was too heavy, because of the heavy buttons on it, so I cut the buttons off and put them in the pocket.

We got a bill from funeral home. It said if we didn’t make the last payment on Grandma’s funeral, up she comes.

About your father, he has a lovely new job. He has over 500 men under him. He is cutting grass at the cemetery.

About your sister. She had a baby this morning. I’m not sure yet if she had a boy or a girl, so I’m not sure if you are a aunt or an uncle.

Your uncle John fell in the whiskey vat. Some men tried to pull him out, but he fought them off playfully, so he drowned. We cremated him. He burned for three days.

Also your aunt Vita May is sick and near death’s door. We’re all praying the Doctors can pull her through.

Four of your friends went off a bridge in a pick-up. The driver got out. He rolled the window down and swam to safety. The passenger inside could not get his window down so he drowned, and the two in the back drowned when they could not get the tailgate to open.

They tried cremation on them, but could not get them to burn. The funeral was closed casket of course.

Not much more news at this time. Nothing much happening around here. Write more often.

Love Mom

P.S. I was going to send you some money, but the envelope was already sealed.

Below are questions that people "actually asked" of Park Rangers around the country, proving once again that there is no known limit to the depths of human stupidity.
(Source: Outside Magazine)

Grand Canyon National Park...
Was this man-made?
Do you light it up at night?
I bought tickets for the elevator to the bottom -- where is it?
So where are the faces of the presidents?

Everglades National Park...
Are the alligators real?
Are the baby alligators for sale?
Where are all the rides?
What time does the two o'clock bus leave?

Denali National Park (Alaska)...
What time do you feed the bears?
Can you show me where the yeti lives?
How often do you mow the tundra?
How much does Mount McKinley weigh?

Mesa Verde National Park...
Did people build this, or did Indians?
Why did they build the ruins so close to the road?

What did they worship in the kivas -- their own made-up religion?
Do you know of any undiscovered ruins?
Why did the Indians decide to live in Colorado?

Carlsbad Caverns National Park...
How much of the cave is underground?
So what's in the unexplored part of the cave?
Does it ever rain in here?
How many Ping-Pong balls would it take to fill this up?
So what is this -- just a hole in the ground?

Yosemite National Park...
Where are the cages for the animals?
What time do you turn on Yosemite Falls?
Can I get my picture taken with the carving of President Clinton?

Yellowstone National Park...
Does Old Faithful erupt at night?
How do you turn it on?
When does the guy who turns it on get to sleep?
We had no trouble finding the park entrances, but where are the exits?

Good morning everyboomie. wave

It’s good to see you all this morning.

Well it would be good to see you all if I weren’t working. rolleyes

Did I say I loved my job.............ever?

I lied. duh

I do like it though.

Yeah that’s a lie too.

I………..tolerate it………………….with wild enthusiasm. grin

No that’s a lie too.

I tolerate it with mild enthusiasm……………….honestly, that’s no lie. yes

Just talking about it makes me incredibly excited.

That’s a lie too, but it does give me happy thoughts. happydance

Nope sorry that’s a lie too.

It makes me nauseous. sick

I’d better go throw up and get to bed. I have an early day.

Have a happy day everyone. thumbsup


PS sorry about all the lies.

SpaceQ, how are you doing?

I'm not sure what today will bring. Hubby and I are doing a Costco/Sam's Club run and then if I don't feel any better, I'll be slugging and playing Nancy Drew. I appear to have been struck with a cold and aches out of the blue. sick

Have a great day everyone!

Re: Sunday's - 11/11/12 11:38 AM

Hey Sorta, now we know 2 new pet food products. It really is Blue Dog Bakery and I have the box right in front of the monitor and there's a big blue dog in a bakers hat and holding a pan of dog biscuits. I'm going to your site too. I used to have opossums running around my house at night and I truly enjoyed them. Especially the babies. Take care of the kits and yourself now, girl.

Something's wrong -I woke up early, 6:33, and wide awake and I didn't hurt anywhere, like I am 16 again. Wow. The pollen is subsiding could that have something to do with it? All you boomers with colds get out the chicken broth and garlic and get well Now.

Lovely weather persists but cold at our doorstep they say.

Happy Sunday all and good gaming

Re: Sunday's - 11/11/12 07:37 PM

Well, I outdid myself on yard work today. Got antsy and couldn't wait for yard kid (never know when he will show up) and finally bought some large plastic bins to plant my new 'hedge' thingies. Managed to move all 3 to back yard, dug into my compost pile and planted all 3 in the barrels. Then I was exhausted, but later (like I said, just got antsy) went out and used my dolly to move all 3 to the front porch where they started. Whew. I'm really tired and sore, but I think I managed to do it all without hurting my back. Hooray.

Hey, new person in town, LeBelleRachael. Welcome. But like Joe says, maybe those of us who hate typing will have to find a short version. welcome

Oh, and I forgot for auntiegram: Yup it gets cold here sometimes. Usually it's just chilly wind from the ocean (I'm only a mile away) and the breeze kicks up and it comes into the house. Just need to warm it up with a few minutes of the old wall gas heater and I'm good for a few hours. When I say cold, I mean like below 70. Ha. It got down to 65 overnight and I thought it was freezing. Burrrr. I hate cold.

Re: Sunday's - 11/11/12 09:44 PM

Good evening boomies. I had a nonstop day and unfortunately now that I am sitting, I feel icky again. lol Just goes to show you if you ignore it, it goes away.

I made a spiral cut ham and a new concoction that was a hit. It was a cheesy broccoli quinoa casserole and I made 2 pans of it. I also made a big pot of beef vegetable soup. I have tons of leftovers and the fridge is full again. I love being able to grab food already made.

The dogs and I got in a couple miles before the storms hit so they were happy. I went to Sams Club, Costco, Lowes, Target and Caputos. Lots of small annoying errands checked off my list and I managed to get in three loads of wash in between errands. That pretty much sums up my day. I had two more errands to do, but I ran out of time so tomorrow morning I will go to Crate and Barrel to get my favorite pepper blend I ran out of yesterday and my green tea bags from Whole Foods.

Did we all have a great day?

Re: Sunday's - 11/11/12 11:05 PM

rofl - gee , i thought i did well to get some game time in without being interrupted , ana. you did all that , and not feeling well to boot !

i enjoyed the gaming and the peace and quiet after the last few days , though.

my sister does a quinoa dish but it's got chinese flavors to it - i don't know exactly what.

nan , my weather today was like yours , and i tried to stay warm ,too ! thought i would freeze doing the trash ,and it's not even winter yet -brrrr.

see you tomorrow - sleep well !

Re: Sunday's - 11/11/12 11:11 PM

Niteowl, uninterrupted game time is always great! I sit too much when I have to work so it's great to move when I am not working.

I love quinoa, it's so versatile. I have a standard one I make weekly to have on hand that is herbs and garlic but this was a bit more decadent and certainly not lo-cal. lol

Sweet dreams!

Re: Sunday's - 11/11/12 11:47 PM

Oh Sorta I like your cold. lol I might have to pack up and kmove. duh

Wow Ana!!! You are amazing!!! I got tired just reading all the things you did plus a couple miles running with the dogs too. Hope you are feeling better. HUGS!

niteowl glad you had some quiet time for gaming!!! Always a pleasure. We are already down to 24F. eek How low will it go??? lol
