  1. ~ Yes, lovely! Thank you Blue Our 3 yr-old granddaughter on the way to my husband taking me to work yelled out, "Pink trees Gamma! The trees have flowers! That's craaazy!" Yep, & not for long... We've grown strawberries from plants pre-grown & tomatoes which the grandbabes have loved, but just as they're cranking up, <*frost*>. Sigh... Our lilac bush is blooming already. The cat's happy, it's her summer retreat { all winter she's on our heated waterbed }. Has been in the 70's this week. ~ Yep Dreed Susanville's a cute little town, huh? We drove thru on the way to Eagle Lake to
  2. ~ I work retail... Really, humans 'skip the groove' sooo often I realise there are a variety of reasons why someone wouldn't notice the 6 aisles of shoes they're standing in front of when they ask me where the shoes are, or when a gentleman asks me to find a bra & panties for his wife who's not there & he doesn't know her size. { Usually she's about his size, makes it easier... }
  3. ~ Granbabe teaching you to use her 'Leap Frog' & she says, "It's OK Gramma, I know you're old!" Oh! & when ya can't find your post-it notes. Totally lost! ... They're right where ya left 'em... by your glasses... after ya left a post-it to remind ya... on the mirror... above your glasses...
  4. ~ OK. I love playing with words, but I'm of less use than a brick with this. Whaaat? { Givin' me a complex... A co-worker the other day said, "Tom was really tired & wanted to use my car & I went to the bathroom & I can't find my phone!" Huh? & then a manager started talking to me in Tagalog & I thought I'd had a stroke until she said, "Ooops! Sorry."} ... I've had a stroke before. I'm gettin' nervous... Grandparents? ~ Thank you Songster! I'm alll confuzzled...
  5. ~ No need to worry about slugs or snails here, there are none {gets waaay to cold! } Trying to describe to our 5 yr-old granddaughter what a snail is? Never seen one? Odd conversation Lilacs grow well here & pine trees & roses are tough, trying tomatoes in a 4 month season is more than I'm willing to challenge! { That's why the surprise at last summer's pansies. Silly things are blooming already! } ... Our daughter buys me flowers to plant with her daughters to enjoy during summer, zinnias never make it. Sometimes it snows in May. Snowed once in July! Northern Nevada is funky on weat
  6. ~ Wow Blue... No, I hadn't heard of allotments. That's neat! Sounds like you're busy We do have a 1/4 acre yard, but it's all down-hill & Nevada rocky dirt. For us to plant anything but thistle & thorn we'd need machinery to dredge & trucks of soil { & actually we have some mighty grand purple thistle every summer! 4,5 ft. tall & purple & "Where did Scottish thistle come from?" talkin' } Have my flower bed & was surprised 2 pansies made it through the winter... Hits 2* I'm surprised anything has! Snapdragons toughed it out too
  7. ~ Humans are creative, always have been. Imagination rampant & craftful in creation... Not always pretty, quite true. At times quite vile. At times transcendant... Humans be the craziest critters! There's really nothing new being done that hasn't been done over & over & over & over & over & over before. & before that it was done too ~ I believe that Hexalpa is proposing that perhaps humans may be able to get past that repetition. That mayhaps humans may be at a point that they can 'calm the savage beast' & not simply react as was done before, but act more civi
  8. ~ Hello Voodoo Doctor Would you mind explaining a bit more? I do apologise if I'm annoying, I don't intend to be. Thank you! ~ Rev'd Rattlesnake, could you be patient with me & please clarify what you said? I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.
  9. ~ Darlin', it's lovely! You've been doin a marvelous job at this! Be proud !!! But yeah, the difference in the fonts... { I like 'Comic Sans MS' personally, but then again I am... }
  10. ~ The music we cannot hear... The stars humming in a unison we cannot comprehend enveloping all of this most marvelous existence All we really can do is dance as well as we can
  11. ~ The robins are back & crabbing for water in the bird-bath, the jays are in the back-yard annoying the cat again Have many lovely blossoms on the pear tree, hoping they aren't blown away! { winds get so wicked here } How's your Spring springing?
  12. ~ Uh-huh... Like it's sensible you're gonna lose your salt...
  13. ~ Darlin', have you ever heard the phrase, "Too much information!" ? Just curious...
  14. ~ Wednesday, January 19, 2033. Are we gonna take bets or anything? { 'cause I think that's a long shot }
  15. ~ Ya ask a question of a silly person like me, you're gonna get a silly answer I vary too often to actually have a definitive answer... I have very strong images of past lives, & tho' I have vivid dreams they're always emotionally tinged. Past lives aren't. So I don't know. I have had moments of extreme clarity of wherein I am in a unity with Creation and peaceful & joyous, mostly I'm disconnected. Could just be me being manic/depressive. So I don't know. I've felt deeply within me powers connected to Elements { Fire, Earth, Water, Air } & 'know' that I've existed within each to l
  16. ~ I don't discount anything... everything counts & is of import.
  17. ~ Oh good grief... Y'all knew I would if ya didn't & ... "Teach, I need some help on the technique needed to massage this marinade into the breast!" "How exactly do I work these thighs?" "OK, this part is tenderized, do I just flip it & work on the rest?" " Yo! Do I pound the rump or grind it?" ... You all are SOOO bad!!!
  18. ~ Had a friend that worked at the old Busch Gardens bird sanctuary in Van Nuys, Cal. Had a customer leaving with something under his coat & asked, "What's that?" He said, "Oh, it's my bird. You guys should really provide bags!" "Security!!!" { It was a nifty place, tour the brewery, walk through the lovely gardens, see the Clydesdales, get drunk, Nice! }
  19. ~ old_nick, you can & do give me the giggles at times! Thank you :
  20. ~ That's an elegant way to ensure human error isn't involved in an "Ooops!" Thank you for the explanation md ~ They're installing 'smart meters' in Reno, section by section now. What I understand is they monitor the usage by time & amount to clarify billage so if you choose to spread the payment over a year rather than monthly it's easier. Installation costs, but if you have solar panels or such it's more efficient. I could of course be confusing something for another... I'm quite capable of that! ... Lot of older areas around peeved they're getting meters at all... { " I can't afford to
  21. ~ Hon, ya gotta stay a-breast of the news.
  22. ~ & there ya go! Ya get sand which you'd rather not have & your pick Nick choices are laid before ya... devilled or pickled? { Still gonna be uncomfortably sandy... }
  23. ~ One of those cute little froggies in the Amazon? ... Oh! That ghastly table my father made { Tried to kill me just sighing & splatting flat on my back. No, you're not going to know why I was under it. }
