October 16, 2013

Good afternoon! Another beautiful, cloudy, cool autumn day here in Collin County. Yesterday I had Rice Krispies for breakfast, cleaned the house, processed an incoming Avon shipment, showered, updated the apps on my iPad Mini, got the mail, updated Quicken, took the dogs out, went to Wendy's for lunch, went through the email in my account & bought a beautiful ring (3rd pic), catalog shopped & bought some beautiful Christmas yarn to make an entrelac sweater with, then settled down on the sofa to work on the entrelac sweater that I'm currently making & it's coming out great (2nd pic)! Yesterday's Sims game (& today's) is
Lakeside Mansion & my Sim Nikki is in the university on an apprentice phys ed award & has been going to classes. This morning I took the dogs out & am enjoying this cool weather & wearing the beautiful sweaters I've made over the years. :)

At this time of year, autumn, my memory goes back to my vagabond youth on the dusty plains of Nebraska ... & 2 of my very 1st girlfriends, Jennifer Jailbait. Even then there were indications that she was, well, fast. How fast? Well, let me put it this way. She thought the 1st 3 letters of the alphabet were I-U-D. -Johnny Carson 1979

Bad case of the hiccups may be on the way. Have plenty of carbonated drinks available & practice burping. Getting the ABCs all in 1 burst is a good
exercise. (Note: Be careful, my uncle Farlow died of hiccups in 1983.) -Jeff Foxworthy

In his 1960 masterpiece Psycho, Alfred Hitchcock used Bosco Chocolate Syrup as fake blood.

Keep your personal problems private. If you feel emotionally overwhelmed by something that's going on at home, go to the restroom, & once you're safely locked in a stall, take deep breaths, put your arms over your head & regain control.
