I thought I had posted this earlier... jeeeez I'm tellin ya! anyway... here's all the exciting stuff that happened today... see if you can handle it blog ol buddy ol pal...
Today was Dr. Seuss' birthday! He would have been 108 years old... Love his stuff.
I used to be able to retrace my steps to remember whatever it was that I went wherever to fetch or do ... well? it doesn't work any longer.
What in the world did I go out to my car for? I've been sitting here where I was when I got up and went to my car... I even unlocked it - brought the keys back... went back to my car, opened the door and just stood there. I was typing something on my computer..... shee - it's been at least 20 minutes now... car's still open in case I remember. Maybe if I relock it? sigh
This is serious.
HAH! ... finally after an hour or so.... I wanted to check my insurance policy --- didn't show anything online -- if I had roadside service. Still didn't say anything except that I have a $50 towing allowance. So, I called and the person said I do... $50 each incidence.. that'll work... for a flat tire or lost key or anything... cool! I was going to get AAA... sooooo that's good. One more thing down.
I belong to a Yahoo group called Women Go Solo. There are some really adventurous women out there. I'm adventurous but not camping by myself in the wilderness or remote places. A topic came up about snakes and spiders and such. Fun and scary stories about spider and snake encounters ....
When I went to the Everglades... I set out to explore a bit ... and met a HUGE alligator. Don't recall any instructions on what to do when one encounters such but I reached back in time to how to handle a snake.... they are reptiles, right? amphibians? what's the difference? aw jeeeeeEEEz... guess I'll google... got too much to do ... anyway ... I slooooowly backed back and then ran like hell.
I talked to the airboat guy who also had an alligator eating place ... I'm just not interested in eating 'em. I don't like to eat anything that's been alive --- I do... but I don't like it and I don't want to be reminded that it was alive. That's why I don't like those commercials where the food is talking... seriously!
The guy said ... this is the Everglades ... there are alligators ... I thanked him and went on my way.
Anyway... this is a copy of my email in response to the spider and snake stuff... wanna read it? It just reminded me a some fun stuff... I like to be reminded of such ... :D
I had a spider in an upstairs half bath that stayed in an upper right hand corner... she had a very nice web. I tore it down several times but by the 3rd or 4th time... I admired her tenacity and became attached to her ... kept thinking of Charlotte's web...
Can't remember how long she was there but it was a very looong time ... drew a crowd from the neighborhood kids! They were 'almost' respectful... HAhaaaa
My stepson and son were each away at a G'ma's or friend's house --- this was back in the day when my husband and I liked each other. We decided that we'd go rent an adult movie. I mean... Pooh Bear and all things Disney was about all we watched.
We went to the video renting place -- they are practically extinct these days! - we went behind this adult door feeling pretty sexy ... and after looking at several thises and thats... decided blech ... we hadn't seen Alice in Wonderland in a while and so we just bought the damn thing... cracked up over the ---
"What we need is a lizard with a ladder" -- Bill
The next morning --- the cutest little green lizard was sitting atop the faucet in the kitchen! little ol bitty thing -- I said.... you're a lizard! ... on my faucet! ... Haaaa... it looked at me... was not afraid. I turned on the water ... it stayed ... and it stayed for weeks!
We were soooooo disappointed when he left... I mean he would go away for a bit then come back and be at the same place for weeks! then one day he left for good... sniff
Back in my drinking days, I was double dog dared to pet a rattlesnake and I did. They are supposed to be okay unless its tail springs up with the rattle going... it was in a glass cage ... AND I held part of a Boa Constrictor at the San Diego Zoo... haahaaa... me and a bunch of kids.... strong rascals
Getting Homer ready to roll, y'all! ... target date? --- the Ides of March... ;)
