I am wondering

Last week we went to deliver some product to a lady at her work. Now that's not strange, but this is!!


I know what this is.  It's a metal stairs thingie.  But why would it be up against the outside wall?? Why would it not be somewhere else. This is not a place where trucks come and offload their contents. This is a part of the office complex.  And then I looked a little farther -----

This is an entire pumping unit for the oil field!!

It costs a lot of money to make.  Why would it be out on the sidewalk of an office building???

Stranger and stranger.!!!

We Have a Road Runner in our YARD!!

PWe had just eaten supper. Tried something -- cheesy grits. YUCK!!  Don't try makeing grits with corn meal. It doesn't work. 

I'm all over the place putting food up. Turning on the dish washer. All that stuff. So I decided to sit for a little while. 

Sarah started barking. She had something cornered. 

Of course, she was inside and whatever was outside. Jerry was up so he checked to see. He said "bird". So I got up and

it was a ROAD RUNNER!!  

Really!! An honest Road Runner!!  So I tried to take a picture and this is what I got



Those Road Runners are fast little suckers!!

OCD is an OMG

Today I am confessing that I have OCD to a point. For a long time I couldn't put something into the microwave without lining it up with the grids on the metal shelf thingie.

Today I realized that it has GROWN into another thing that has to line up ---

But NOT like this. This is my ninja mixer. And on the bottom of the plastic thing that holds all the goodies there is a paper sticker. Today I looked into the container and what did I see??

A strip of paper ---- and it was CROOKED!!!

YUCK!!

NOT!!

NADA!!

NEVER will it be like that!!

Not again!!

So I turned it around so that it was straight.

YES!!!

I think that proves my theory about dyslexia and OCD.  We all have both to some degree. Does it matter? NO it does not. That's just the way we were made.

Sleeping is GOOD

Night before last I didn't sleep hardly at all. My legs were cramping and my shoulder hurt and various other things kept me from sleeping.

So last night I SLEPT really well. I don't remember waking but once and that was to turn over.

I have been in a better mood today. None of that snippy, snarky thoughts when someone said something that I didn't agree with.

None of that. Just overlooked lots of things and fixed breakfast and lunch, which Jerry didn't want and now I am wondering if he will want to have what I am thinking about fixing for supper.

He was put on the Mediterranean diet about a month ago. That's OK-----if you didn't grow up on a farm with limited access to different veggies and kinds of bread.

I just can't imagine what it was like to always have the same things to eat. Meat--potato--corn or mac and cheese. That's about it.

Our Lynn and Our Dave and their kids LOVE to cook. In fact when they all show up here they take over the kitchen and prepare they food. They don't just fix a meal----they PREPARE them.

AWESOME things to eat.

But I digress.

Back to the sleeping.

I didn't just sleep I slept until 7 a.m. and that is so much better that 5a.m.

I am just thankful that it happened. Because with the dreary, cloudy day and Jerry not wanting to eat, I think I would be snarly again if I hadn't slept well.

I am soooo tired!

Have you ever gone to sleep and just had a REALLY good sleep. Got up to see what time it was and you had been in the bed for ONE HOUR!!

I have been doing that for the last week. YUCK!

NOT!!

HAPPENING!!
TONIGHT!!!

I have to have some uninterrupted sleep. You know what I am talking about. That sleep where you don't even move. You are in REM for hours instead of minutes. The kind of sleep that is WONDERFUL!!!

The ROBINS have come back

A couple of weeks ago  saw some robins. That means Spring to me. Then no more until today.

I looked out in the yard and there they were. On the bird bath, in the bird bath and flying around the bird bath.

Great big Robins strutting in the yard with one keeping an eye open for the bad guys.

I always think of soldiers when I see robins. They march around the yard with their necks stretched out and their backs straight.

Always letting us know that they are important too. They are leaders--because they are the first to make a big showing in the world around our house. They are what they other birds follow.

So I have decided to copycat the robins. I am going to be confident, in charge and the one that all the other birds want to follow.

Hair and Oklahoma

I may be old and cranky
And have to carry a hanky
          because of the pollen
That comes in the skanky
Spring!! Makes my hair lanky

And it won't stay put at all
Not like in the fall
        when the wind doesn't blow
Well, we do live in OK after all
So it doesn't bother at all?? AT ALL!!

I put on the hair spray and the mousse
I back comb and tease- hair is too loose
        This time of year there is only one certain
And that is that hair is  GONNA look worse

Than at any other part of the year.
Summer is HOT and sticky--oh DEAR!!!
        hair just is hot and grungy!!
Winter is bad I have to cheer
Because hair stays put. CHEER-CHEER-CHEER!!!
