Calmly going about my task of cleaning the bathroom, something we all hate to do from time to time, I climbed in with cleaners at hand. I shoved the shaky glass door over and got a scary feeling all at the same time. TOO LATE! The door came off the runner and WHAM I was stuck. No way I could crawl over the top. I tried the other door and push and pried it as much as I could. NOTHING..absolutely NOT BUDGING. AT. ALL. Well this is a fine thing!! I can't clean, the fumes would take me over, I can't call for one would hear but the CAT. What to do?? I can sit and wait. WHAT??? Sis would not be home for hours. Kept trying to pry the darn door open. Not wanting to break the glass..I went about trying to just get ONE inch open so that my hand could loosen it up. NOPE not working. Didn't help my poor hand either. All the knuckles are scraped now. So what to do?? My biggest nightmare come true.  WHAT WOULD YOU DO??? I just had nothing I could even break the glass with if I wanted to. 

You guessed it.. I sat and waited..tried on and off to get it open but finally gave up. I didn't want to steam up the bathroom or I would have taken a shower. TWO HOURS later..Sis comes home from work wondering who is yelling and what the heck has happened. SHE laughs and laughs thinking it is soooo funny.( Not if it was her she wouldn't.) She easily pops the door back on the runner from her side and it took her like 3 minutes to do it. She says to me, "OH did you clean the tub??" I wanted to smack her!! I wanted to, but I didn't.
THAT'S why I love shower can replace them easy, they are colorful and modern and they NEVER keep you hostage in the shower!!  It did occur to me later that this IS LABOR DAY weekend. Weird and sometimes scary things happen on that weekend, they have for years, at least for me they have.  I decided that from now on I will keep that door open enough so I can at least escape just in case it happens again. My luck it just might too!!

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was
better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and
frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering.
Finally fed up, God said, “THAT’S IT! I have had enough. I am going
to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those
results, I will judge who does the better job.”
So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
They moused.
They faxed.
They e-mailed.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They downloaded.
They did spreadsheets!
They wrote reports.
They created labels and cards.
They created charts and graphs.
They did some genealogy reports
They did every job known to man.
Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than
Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly
flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of
course, the power went off..
   OH NO!!!!
Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word
known in the underworld.
Jesus just sighed.
Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted
their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming:
It’s gone! It’s all GONE! “I lost everything when the power went
Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from
the past two hours of work.
Satan observed this and became irate.
“Wait!” he screamed. “That’s not fair! He cheated! How come he has
all his work and I don’t have any?”
God just shrugged and said,….

THIS was sent to me by my friend BOB BOWERS, I saved it...WE MISS YOU BOB!!

While moving and such last week I found myself in need of a snack so off to the store I went. I came across this stuff in a weird package. Low and behold it was on sale and I thought ..why not?? So I tried it. Just so happened that when I was trying it out, the manager of the storage park came by and saw me sucking it out of the package.
Embarrassed me to no end, but hey,.. I told him it was tasty! There was nothing in the package but applesauce and cinnamon. The cinnamon cut my craving for lunch, and I got right back to work. I wouldn't recommend this to small children, because of the screw on lid, but NOW I can see why the kids like those yogurts in a tube. Tasty and no spoons etc.

 My next venture into the store led me to the aisle where I could purchase those frozen delights in a bag..YEP.. took those outside to keep cool in the heatwave days we have been having too. I think I have been sent back to my childhood this summer by just the heat and the need to stay chilled. NO, no one saw me eating those pops, but if they had I probably would have offered them one too!!

FINALLY DONE..I am not looking back either. It took months to fill my storage unit and only weeks to empty it. I called as many places and people as I could to help me get things out of there. Price was going up and I just could not see keeping things forever in there. My aches and pains are subsiding now from all the lifting. Looky who I found..still the same as the day it was purchased and the original hair. Someday may it bring me good luck. This one is from the 60's and now they sell all kinds but the older ones are much better. Oh I am amazed that there wasn't  something terrible said about how they were  unclothed and such.Today people are so strict about such things.
In the 60's WE dressed them and WE did their hair. When I researched it on E bay some are selling for a high price. Think I will hold on to mine for a while longer.

Recently I read an article that set me to thinking about my profile photo. I picked a photo I really liked from thousands on Google images. I have used it for years, but this article convinced me that it may be a good idea to use one of my own photos from now on.I sure didn't want to get sued for some image that I thought was FREE.So I know now that I what I would choose would be something that I could be sure would be MINE alone. So, I went about changing all my profile photos every place I could think of. There were more than I thought. So guess I will just use a sunset or some other photo I like from now on. You won't see the woman sitting on the beach anymore. 

It has been terrible hot and humid here like most of the country right now. I fear this winter we will all be suffering the affects of this. Prices will be so much higher. Grab what you can cheap now ,stock up if you can. Wish I had a tank to buy gas cheap too and store it for wintertime. Twenty cent rise here in just one day. Just crazy!

Got news that someone in the extended family has end stage Leukemia, such a shock and sending prayers to the whole family. AND SO IT GOES ON...
