Little known facts.

 

And once you read them you’ll realize how little you care…..

I’m sure you could have gone all day with out hearing that, but since I hate nuts anyway? It strengthens my resolve that peanut butter is disgusting.

 

IMG_E3163

 

Yeah.

Enjoy that sandwich now.

I dare you.

I had to do a little research on this one because I grew up adoring Ted.

Sadly, he’s wasn’t always the sweet cuddly children’s author we imagined.

But I still love the Lorax, sorry Helen.

Asbestos snow…

What could go wrong?

 

IMG_E3170

 

True.

And quite bizarre…

 

IMG_E3166

 

Well, we could all use a little more protein in our diets.

 

IMG_E3167

 

People are allergic to cochineal insects?

How would they know? I didn’t even realize there was such a thing.

 

IMG_E3165

 

Okay, I agree…. that really would have sucked.

And finally, because men aren’t filled with enough penile insecurities as it is.

IMG_E3169

 

Sorry guys.

Penis envy is a horrible thing.

P.S. ….. When I woke up and checked WP on my phone this morning? My reader preview made me do a double take.

Damn.

The porn spammers will be back any day now.

Because when I have a lot of time on my hands… it’s what I do.

 

If I’m self isolating?

And the husband is teleworking so I have to tiptoe quietly around the house….

I read.

 

IMG_3083

 

And when the husband is not working…… but watching old westerns with John Wayne or non stop Corona Virus news coverage that makes me want to scream?

I read.

 

IMG_3084

 

Problem is I read too much and too quickly.

12 books in 2 weeks makes me wish we were eligible for that stimulus package check.

Because if this keeps up much longer… and Goodwill and the libraries stay closed?

I’m going to need it for my Amazon bill.

This and that.

Sunset from our front porch…

 

IMG_6548

 

It never gets old.

If you haven’t read the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale….

 

IMG_E6233

 

It does answer a lot of questions, though I can’t say I was in love with the ending.

 

IMG_E6318

 

If anyone can explain this exhaust system?

Please do… because I’m a bit baffled.

Yay for fall and all it’s ( don’t push winter it will be here soon enough) vodka flavors.

I see Mules in my future.

 

 

No, not that kind.

Although mine will probably have a kick as well.

 

 

Things I don’t like today… Part 4.

 

I don’t like….

Ordering flowers over the phone for a friend who just had surgery down in North Carolina. I wanted a large, impressive arrangement and was very specific with my request. I said….

No carnation fillers.

All pink and purple.

An interesting vase… definitely no clear glass.

So what did they deliver for $160?

 

IMG_6109

 

A clear glass vase, filled with carnations… and a few yellow roses and orange gerber daisies stuck in for no other reason than to piss me off.

$160 worth of everything I didn’t want!

 

 

I don’t like….

Ordering a pair of hard to find little batteries from Amazon that fit in an envelope.

 

IMG_6080

 

And having it come in a box.

 

IMG_6079

 

Talk about overkill.

 

IMG_6078

 

I don’t like…

Reading Maine native Stephen King’s latest,

 

IMG_6133

 

And realizing he’s lost his touch.

This new book? Meh…

Don’t bother.

 

I don’t like…

Buying a tin of Altoids to keep in my car,

 

IMG_6137

 

Getting them home and realizing…

 

IMG_6138

 

They’re slightly past their prime.

2009?

Damn. That’s worse than what I have in the back of my kitchen cabinet.

 

I don’t like….

My husband getting called into work on a weekend because,

 

IMG_E6096

 

Some idiot doesn’t know how to steer his hot air balloon.

Oops!

Let’s Talk Chicken… chapter 2.

 

Admit it, you’d thought I’d forgotten about this series.

 

IMG_E4092

 

Well, I didn’t.

And in case you missed chapter 1…

Let’s talk chicken…

Onward!

Chapter 2.

 

IMG_2389

 

Chicken etiquette.

(Be honest…

Where else can you find quality blog content like this?

No where, that’s where.)

 

IMG_2390

 

Chickens are the most common bird on earth.

And since they out number us by 43 billion?

You might want to pay attention.

The uprising could come any day now.

 

IMG_2391

 

Pecking order is important… and not always based on size. Scientists believe breed, intelligence and personality allow chickens to size up other members of the flock. Knowing your place is what it’s all about.

The usual hen house order goes like this:

 

IMG_2392

 

The rooster is king.

Let’s call him Jon…

Next is the head hen…

 

IMG_2393

 

We shall call her Sansa.

Then there’s the sentinel.

 

IMG_2394

 

Whose name is Arya.

And finally, the weak bottom dweller…

 

IMG_2395

 

Who, of course… is named Theon.

(Hey, it’s Game of Thrones final season…

It can’t all be about chickens.)

But here’s a tidbit of trivia you probably could have gone all day without knowing.

 

IMG_2396

 

Cold hearted bitches, chickens.

But who can blame her when a man with better hair comes along?
