That's the Way, Uh Huh Uh Huh, I like It, Uh Huh Uh Huh

(you're welcome in advance for the ear worm)

Rejection sadness is over for the moment. For no other reason than I had ice cream. Are there endorphins in dairy?

  • Mom had an entire change of clothes without a mishap. Meaning I did not have an aneurysm looking for her pants.
  • We found out that Tresemme's dry shampoo does not work. (remember that spray on powder in the 1970's? That stuff worked.)
  • I saw an entire episode of Yo Gabba Gabba I had not seen before. (Moono got glasses or rather he got one glass - he only has one eye.) I think I have a crush on DJ Lance.
  • We went to a new place, Grayson's Cafe, for lunch. It was just okay. Even with a 1/2 off one item coupon, it was still over $15. That seems like a lot of money for food you eat out of a basket. Rick's Diner might cost the same, but your food is served on an actual plate. (They also have good onion rings which weighs the odds heavily in their favor.)

Afterward we went to Maple View Farm for ice cream. 

Mom had Strawberry, Honey Toasted Almond for moi.

This is the view from the porch where we started out, but the bees and wasps were too interested in the ice cream for my comfort, so we went inside. You can still see the view.
Which Mom declared,
"Beautiful. Period."

Trying to remember some of the stuff she said today. There's so much.
Oh, she asked about my kids as usual, then I asked about hers.
"I don't have any kids."
She wanted to know if I still had my dogs or had I given them away.
No dogs. Still. 

Of a woman merging onto the highway she said, "I don't know if she's alive or not."

Well, I'm off to do laundry a little dance...get down tonight...


  1. That dry shampoo was called Psssssst, wasn't it? My mother used Johnson's Baby Powder with good results. Pour some -- not a lot to start --onto your hands, rub gently at roots to absorb oil -- brush hair. If hair isn't sufficiently fresh and fluffy, reapply and repeat. CP

  2. When food is served in baskets, I am immediately suspicious. I mean, we all know you can't run a basket through the dishwasher. And wax paper doesn't count for much, in terms of germ-fighting power. (I don't think. For all I know, they are using it by the metric ton to stave off staph in hospitals.) ANYWAY.

  3. And why are the baskets always red? Is this a good color for hiding fingerprints and ketchup drips so you won't notice your basket was used ten minutes ago for someone else's lunch? Or is it supposed to cheer you up because you're eating out of a basket?

    Just curious.
