Vacation Time

Working people look forward to Friday. I remember when I thought it was the happest day in the week, but now I dread it because I know the weekend is here again. I hate the weekend. During the week I have the whole town to myself. Well, most of it. There may be a few people out and about, but I can go shopping and have the whole aisle to myself. I don't know why, but I swear Saturday and Sunday have more hours in them than any other day. Today is Saturday and we are into the 28th hour and it's only 5 PM. Tomorrow will be the same way.
I guess I need a vacation.

Retirement Fun

Life in the slow lane. When you get old you are in everybody's way. When you drive down the street everybody is whizzing around you. You look at your speedometer and you're going exactly the speed limit. Most people think you can get away with five miles over the limit so they must do that. I 'm not in a hurry. I don't have a job to go to or a family to go home to so why hurry? Somebody once told me that Thursday is Shuffler's day at the grocery store. I don't pay any attention to that, I just go very early in the morning so I can get home before the speed demons are out and about.

Blogging Frustrations

Cora, you asked when I was going to spill the beans about my blog. Well, it is like this, I wanted to learn how to do it before anybody saw it. I know how to put a picture on it and how to write my dumb stuff, but I can't figure out how to get my ducks in a row yet. So to speak, that is. One of my titles is "Counter". Now, how dumb is that?
In answer to your query, I like the Northwest much better than the red hills of Oklahoma.


Blogging is suppose to be so easy that even your Grandmother can do it. Well, I am a Grandmother and it is driving me nuts. I went through the tour and read how you can drag and drop. OH, so simple. I decided to put a counter on my site. I found one and all it said about it was to copy the code and put it on your web site. I wanted it to go at the bottom of the page like everybody else has it. It went near the top of the site. If it's so easy to drag and drop why can't I drag it to the bottom of the page? That is what I asked myself a thousand times. I have even deleted it and put it back on and it never goes to the bottom. If any body with some knowledge about such things would tell me how to do it I would be forever grateful. Oh well, maybe not forever, but I would be grateful.

Mount Rainier in all it's Glory

This is one of the beautiful mountains in this great Northwest. Read more about it at this website.

Red Oklahoma Road

I borrowed it because it looks exactly the same as the roads that ran past our Oklahoma country home.
