If I Had a Million Dollars


It's a shame we all can't live our lives with the optimism of children who pick up lottery tickets in parking lots because maybe, just maybe, somebody dropped a winner.

Slip Sliding Away

They say that you're supposed to apply sunscreen a half hour before you go out in the sun but what they don't tell you is that if you do, you'll be quite incapacitated for that half hour.
You're still at home right? Because it's a half hour before you're going out in the son but now your hand are all greased up - you can't open the jar of jelly, your hands slip off the refrigerator door (leaving a big smear), you pick up your sunglasses and leave a greasy fingerprint on them, you can't twist the cap of the UV protection lip gloss. 
You finally make it out the door, after you wrap a towel around the door knob so you can get a grip on it, but of course now your hands are slipping and sliding on the steering wheel; so you're safe from the sun - but other drivers might not be safe from you.

After Midnight

Now that it's summer I can set the alarm for 7:15 rather than 7 AM.
And folks, that's the difference between summer and winter - 15 minutes.

Polk Salad Annie

Salad of the Day sounds good.
Salad of the Month sounds - less good.

Do You Know Where You're Going To? (Theme from Mahogany)

Does Your Mother Know (ABBA)
Your Mother Should Know (the Beatles)

I love it when to songs talk to each other. And I couldn't agree more.

She's So Cold

If April showers bring May flowers.
What do May flowers bring?
The Pilgrims right?
Wrong.
Freakin' cold weather. That's what.
Last night it was 8°C. That's about 46 for you fahrenheit folks. That after a high of 52°F during the day.
I wore leggings to dance class and not the knee-length ones neither, the ankle leggings.
At this rate we'll all be wearing parkas to field day.
I wore my flannels to bed and not the flannel teddy neither.

Let it Blow

You don't realize how windy is it until you're out on the water and you don't realize how dry it is until you're out in the garden.
