My cutest little girl was a cow for halloween. Isn't she just cute. Poor thing had a very bad cold though. I hate it when my kids are sick. My grown up ones and my wee little grand baby too. It makes me feel so bad when they are feeling poorly. I want to make them feel better right now. Any way, My cute little Abby girl was the cutest cow I ever did see. At least she was very warm in her snuggly cow suit. She was so cute.

This is a subject I am trying not to be jealous or petty about. Fairness ,and equality in the work place. Favoritism does exist. Some people are more fav than others. That is reality. I was off work ,sick for nearly 3 months. When I got back to work I was aproached to donate to some cards and gifts for others who were off sick for only 3 weeks. I was taken aback at first. I did not get a card, nor a gift saying that I was missed. Why do some people matter and not others. I worked this through in my mind. Was it because my illness is not as life threatening as others? Or was it because I am not a favorite in the eyes of my boss? I don't know.? I think it is the latter. I may not be important to my collegues, but in the eyes of the lovely cadets that I clean for , I matter very much. All I have heard from them is praise, since I have returned to work. They are so happy , and notice that I make their lives easier by what I do for them. That is all that matters. After all, if it wasn't for the cadets, I would not have a job. I must remind myself that I must do my job for God and not for men. Then things in my mind would be far easier. But my human mind tells me that I must work to please my boss. I long to hear praise from my supervisor. I'm afraid that will never happen. My supervisor is such a ditts. Sorry to say but it is the truth. So I will have to hang on to the praises of the cadets and know that I am doing a good job. I will never hear it from my supervisors, that's for sure.

"We are in search"....pause ,pause, pause........."of a crime scene!" "These are the words of the ever so cool David Carusso of CSI Miami, who ever so carefully places his sun glasses on his face and walks off into the sunset! . Oh David... Why must you pause after each ...... ........!
My work did a spoof scene of CSI Miami. Our CO was the infamous "Horatio Caine " sun glasses and all. It was so funny and perfect to a " T" I think it is very odd that Horatio must say a few words..... then have a several second pause ... before he says his next ....words.!!! Check it out and you will know what I mean. Horatio is a hero to small children and very beautiful , helpless women. Seriously.. check it out. Okay CSI Miami I like , but it is not my fav of the CSI series. I am a fan of the original CSI how ever. I also do enjoy the CSI NYC. I have always been a fan of Gary Sinise. He's not only very serious, but he is cute in his own kinda chief of the department way.

Please tell me there are not really people this materialistic. It gave me a chuckle though.

A very successful lawyer parked his brand new Lexus in front of the office ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck came along too close to the curb and completely tore off the driver's door.Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Lexus, his lights flashing. But, before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how the body shop tried to make it new again.After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disgust and disbelief. "I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said. "You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the important things in life.""How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer?The cop replied, "Don't you even realize that your left arm is missing?It got ripped off when the truck hit you!!!""OH, MY GOD!" screamed the lawyer...."MY ROLEX!"
Wordless Wednesday !

Little Miss Muffet sat
On her Tuffet,
Eating her curds
And Whey.

I never knew what real curds were until tonight. A cousin of mine came to visit. We had a family supper at mom and dads house. My little angel baby was there as well.(granddaughter Abby) She is so cute and funny. I just love watching her. Anyway, we sat around the table visiting, and my cousins Larry and Susan brought out some curds from a cheese place they were at in Manitoba. We tried them fresh from the factory. I tell you , in my opinion they were wonderful. So fresh and yuuummy! I now know what curds are. They are not some kind of cereal that I thought miss muffet ate. Curds are a cheese before it becomes cheese. I think that is right. It is when the cheese is pressed of all the whey before it is pressed into cheese blocks. I think. Anyway I loved it. So fresh, and salty, and cheesey. Any way I not only enjoyed the curds, but enjoyed my visit with the cousins. I have said this before that these cousins are one of my favorites. Only because we spent so much time with them growing up. Happy childhood memories. It was a very nice time, curds and all. I think little Abby girl might like curds too, as she loves cottage cheese, and curds are of the same kind of consistency!

Here's a joke for you, sent to me from a friend.

A funny one to start your day. A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can seefrom her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack. "Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday." Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. Thefrog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it'sokay,he knows the bank manager. Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral. The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed. Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult withthe bank manager and disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called KermitJagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000,and he wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?" The bank manager looks back at her and says ... (You're gonna love this) (Its a real treat) (A masterpiece) (Wait for it)....

"It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His oldman's a Rolling Stone." (You're singing it, aren't you? Yeah, I know you are .........) Never take life too seriously! Come on now, you grinned, I know you did!!! Have a lovely day!

I have a Precious Moments Bride doll named "Tammy" It was purchased in 1982. She is a limited addition. I even have the certificate of authenticity. No more than 5000 will ever be made. Her head is all porcelain, hands poreclain as well. Body and feet are cloth. She is about 18" long and is wearing an off white lace wedding dress and veil. If any precious moment collectors out there are interested in purchasing her or know of anyone who is, please leave me a comment. I never got the groom to go with Tammy. She was actually a gift from my ex husband some 25 years ago. I have no use for her now. She is in excellent condition. So like I said, if you or anyone you know are interested please let me know. I even have the original box she came in.
