Hi, friends!


Two things that really irk me are litter and LOUD cell phone conversations on the bus.


Two happy childhood memories are dancing with my Grandpa, and making mudpies in the backyard with my little sister.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

Ugh - I totally agree about litter! People here can still be so inconsiderate when it comes to litter and keeping the environment health (not to mention healthy) not only for themselves but for others.

Do you sometimes think that people ought to go through mandatory ear testing? I mean, what's up with the volume?

I love your memory of dancing with your grandpa. How very special and precious. Making mudpies, too!

Oh Hugs, I hope that you've not had to deal with mean, nasty people. (((((hugs))))))

People who text while driving are bad. Ditto with people who don't use a hands-free or bluetooth when they drive, or who talk to a passenger and don't pay attention to the road. They are dangerous. When I'm a passenger, I try to not talk too much, or keep the conversation light.

Aaawwww, that was so sweet of your friends to do that. A trip to Disney is special. My nephew still talks about his Disney trips.

Two things that really, really, really irk you

Hi Poppy,
Last night we had an amber alert in our state,
A little 4 year old was abducted from her own front yard :(
Which is why I wrote what I did.
However the good news is she is home, unharmded safe & sound, whew!
Now they just need to catch the creep!!!!!

My youngest DS talks/texts all the time when driving :(
Nothing I say matters ::sigh::

Oh yes it was for three of us the surprise party so great fun.
Yes Disney is special & glad I have been to both :)

Sadly more people like this then we realize :(
And they get away with it ::shaking head::

Wow congrats on you having done so well on your piano test :)

Ok, people like that are in their own special category. They don't irk me, they make me very angry. They ought to be skewered and quartered.

Your son should watch the Oprah show that talked about texting and driving. It was an eye opener! Does he at least use a Bluetooth headset when he talks?

Yeah, that's probably the solution. If I were on the phone a lot I'd probably get a Bluetooth, too.

Even though I don't drive I always have had the ear/mic piece. The sound is clearer especially in crowded places, I can talk low into the microphone instead of having to shout, and it leaves my hands free so that I can do other things at the same time - shopping, typing/working, etc.
