They’re not worthy.

 

Not worthy of a blog of their own, but random interesting stuff all the same.

(And by interesting, you know I mean not at all interesting… just random information you didn’t want nor need but I feel compelled to share anyway)

 

 

I read a lot…. and before now have never thought of myself as any of these.

But from now on?

I’m an ink drinker all the way.

 

 

Yes, I bought myself a frying pan that’s reinforced by diamonds.

Because my fried chicken deserves the very best.

 

 

My rose is blooming like a lolly pop.

 

 

Is this earth shattering news you can use?

No.

But nothing I say ever is.

 

 

This claims to be the perfect Cosmopolitan recipe.

I shall research it extensively and report back.

 

 

Sadly, we had to shop for 2 headstones for recently passed members of my husband’s family.

After we picked the size of the stone, and the color of the granite….this was what we were given. Sheets of paper with literally thousands of designs that were printed so small, even reading glasses and a magnifying glass barely helped us make them out.

I believe the husband chose a lighthouse for one…. but it could as easily have been a beer keg.

Time will tell.

 

 

Danger Will Robinson!

If you’ve never experienced a browntail moth rash you haven’t lived a full life. Imagine mixing poison ivy with fire ants and chicken pox…. and you might come close.

These little bastards have moved into Maine and are stripping our trees bare. And if you happen to brush up against one of them? Hang on, because you’ll attempt to rip the skin off your bones within 12 hours. Nothing stops the itch except a spray that comes in a one ounce bottle sold by one hospital in the state for $65 per. Insurance won’t cover it and you need a doctor’s prescription to purchase it.

I get the rash at least 3 times a year.

Good times.

And finally, if you’ve been wondering what people are doing to keep busy during the pandemic… or how they’re spending their stimulus money?

Wonder no longer.

  1. I bought that very same pan! I love it, yes because it says it’s made from diamonds. But I bought it because the stubborn offspring insist on using my nonstick pan set with….METAL UTENSILS!! Ugh men, so I bought this pan to make my French omelets without them sticking.

  2. Hadn’t heard of the toxic brown-tail moth caterpillar. Sounds horrid. Keep it over on your side of the country, please!

    Years ago I was doing the bike leg of a triathlon in Canada. It had rained the night before, and we rode past miles of orchards. I saw caterpillars all over the road, and knew they were flying off my front wheel (in pieces) into my face and chest, so I kept my mouth closed and breathed through my nose until I got past the orchards. But…toward the end of the ride I started losing vision in one eye, clouding over until I couldn’t even see my hand clearly. I had to drop out of the race. Much later, after many visits to eye docs for cloudy vision that came and went, a resident at a teaching hospital remembered reading about a case in an old textbook that described eye irritation due to caterpillar hairs (a boy had ground caterpillars into his younger sibling’s face). It took a couple of years before the occasional cloudiness disappeared.

    Don’t mess with caterpillars!
