Animals are so much fun to watch. When I was a kid I read somewhere that dogs didn't remember anything after 30 seconds. If that's true why does Sarah walk around the living room when we come in from shopping and call her to come see us. She is acting really -- guilty -- about something.
When I look around, there it is!!! She has turned over the trash can next to Jerry's chair - again.
Now, she knows she isn't to do that. She got scolded real bad one day for that and she KNOWS that she is to stay away from the trash can. But it smells so good that she HAS to look. And, of course, the only way to look is to turn it over. That means that the banana peels fall out -- ooohhhh! BANANAS. She loves them!!
And then the WRAPPER off the peanut butter cookies -- actually they are the peanut butter crackers but Jerry calls every thing but pie cookies.
And then she walks away. She can't put anything back because she doesn't have thumbs. So, when we come in she remembers about the trash can and tries to hide. POOR BABY!! She is really in a panic.
THEY WILL FIND THE TRASH!!
And then panic depressions sets in and she hangs her head in shame.
So, I pick her up and tell her to just forget it.
And try to remember to put the can in the bathroom when we leave the next time.
We were watching Clint Eastwood last night in one of the Dirty Harry movies. Wanna know what I found the most disturbing??
At one point someone was murdered. (That's not what disturbed me). There was enough activity to know that a murder had been committed. BUT------
And this is what disturbed me. When the last gasp was heard, a white men's scarf fell to the floor. How do I know it was a man's scarf? Because the name LEE was embroidered onto the material.
Gently the scarf fell to the floor with almost a sensual appeal. And the---
The red spots started to multiply on the white silk.
That didn't bother me.
What disturbed me was this-----
We all knew that someone had died. There was no doubt in any one's mind that someone was no longer living. This movie was made in 1988.
In 2014---what do we see? The neck is slashed and the blood gushes out from the wound into a huge pile of spreading blood. Or, we see another human slamming into the side of a building because the bullet went through him and the blood travels down their bodies until they fall to the ground in a heap.
What disturbs me is this---I knew what was going on in the 1988 movie. I didn't need to see all the blood and guts. My imagination showed me exactly what had happened to LEE.
What's is happening to the imagination of today's youth?
Yesterday we seniors were given a party at the church!! And this is what we found when we walked in!!
Octopus holding on to the table!!
Sharks!! And there were sandwiches.
Croissant sandwiches!! Yuuuummmmoooo!! Of course we had to have PIMENTO CHEESE sandwiches. It took me back to my childhood. Mom used to make pimento cheese and we thought we were in high cotton!! Love pimento cheese because it reminds me of mom!
Lots of people.
Fun, food and games!! Just like a birthday party for all of us.
Thank you Charmin and Brian for doing this for us!!
Well, they aren't glass--they are plastic. Jerry likes them though because they don't sweat. We go one RED one just a while ago.
Now he is a man on a mission and is going after some more.
WALMART of course!!
I love going to the Dollar Tree, and Dollar General and even Family Dollar, but Walmart seems to be THE place to get ANYTHING.
Kinda like the General Store in Dodge when Marshall Dillon was alive. That General Store had EVERYTHING from coal oil to dress goods. From cartridges to knives. China, cook stoves, boots, sweeties, and canned peaches.
