THAT'S WHAT I GET FOR POKING AROUND.

So, I was poking at my stomach because it looked different, and I felt this round, hard spot and knew right away it was a hernia.  Oh, joy, I thought, and had my husband feel it, too.  Unfortunately, he agreed with me.  I went to the doctor Friday and...

YET ANOTHER STRANGE HAPPENING

I fell asleep at the computer during the day a while ago, and when I woke up, my picture was upside down!!  Not only that, but the mouse worked upside down, too, making it a chore to log out.  I managed that, but when I booted up again, it was still...

NOT EVEN MY DOG ...

There's this dog, a beautiful golden retriever, and although I don't hear him bark very often, I always recognize his bark right away.  I've never petted him or spoken to him; I've just seen him from across the yard.   We don't have too many...

A BLAST FROM THE PAST!

All this talk about my triumphs and losses in school reminded me of my best year in school ever - fifth grade.  My class had been divided into two classrooms since first graded, but the fifth grade teacher said he could handle all 62 of us with no...

IS MY TIMING THAT BAD?

It takes me 20 minutes to steam-iron a man's long-sleeved dress shirt.  It doesn't seem as though I'm taking very long while I'm doing it, but afterward when I realize it took 20 minutes, I think I must be really slow!  How long should it take an...

STUFF MY MOTHER-IN-LAW DID TO ME

Hokey dokey!  Remember that I mentioned how high my grade average was, so I had to be valedictorian.  Hubby and I were engaged and his mother didn't like me and wanted us to break up.  SO - she went to the high school principal and told him that we...

CLASS REUNION

My 55th high school class reunion starts at 3PM today and runs until we get bored.  We're all bringing desserts and the class fund is paying for everything else.  We always have it at a private pavilian that one of the guys built.  He has a very...

Be Careful what you Wish For! A story

What Larry thought:   That Sharon - what a looker she is!  I'd never have a chance with a girl like her.  Larry positioned himself in a group of strangers and watched for Sharon to come outside after her swimming class.  The swimming class was...

SHHHHHH - WE WON'T MENTION THIS TO HUBBY ...

Couldn't sleep last night (surprise surprise) to got up around 11:00 and fired up the computer.  The next thing I knew, it was 3:00 in the morning and I'm sitting in my computer chair drooling.  I got up and went to bed and slept until 6:00 am. ...

AND THE FUN NEVER ENDS ...

We haven't had any home-related problems for quite a while, so I guess we were due for one.  Hubby came in just after supper to say that the backyard faucet was broken.  Of course it broke in the open position and was gushing water all over.  He put...
