How is everybody?? Fine I hope.

One day on my way to my blog, I took a short detour and found my way to a game site by the name of ''. So of course being a woman of curiosity I had to check it out.

Some games you have to pay for to play and some are free to play. I found that with a hundred and fifty some odd free games, why would I want to pay to play a game.
The free games are more then enough to satisfy me.

And so it began.

I became so addicted to playing the games that I could hardly wait until it was my turn to use the computer. But in doing so I totally neglected my blog and all of my friends in Blogs ville.

I sincerely hope that all of my old blogger friends are still blogging and that some of you will still remember me.

But even if you don't remember me, I will certainly be enjoying reading your blogs tonight and in the immediate future.

Hi Everybody,

How is everyone in Blogsville? It feels like I've been out of the loop for a very long time and I have missed all of you so much.
I hope to get back to blogging on a little more regular basis.

We have had a very interesting winter this year. We don't usually have snow, but this year we had more then our share.
The first snow was in December, it didn't last long one snow day is all. But it was fun for my grandson who is now in his late teens and the neighborhood kids that gathered in my back yard to build a Snowman. Teens and Children gathered together to create and enjoy day.

They had a ball, but when they were through and got finished admiring their work they all went home and my grandson came indoors. However after a few minutes of thought my grandson (the perfectionist), decided that the Snowman could be a little bit better and he went back out to make Mr. Snowman a little rounder, a little bigger, a little smoother and a little more detailed.

Engrossed in his work he didn't realize just how cold it really was. I tried to get him to come in but all I could hear was, "when I'm finished Granny."

When he finally came in the arches of the bottom of his feet were black, not with dirt, not with bruises, he had a bad case of frostbite.

Thank God my daughter was home. It was her day off. She knew just what to do. And suddenly she was no longer Mom, she was the professional Emergency Technician that she trained to be.
She flew into action. Just as calm as the professional that she is.

As for myself, I was in shock-- not over what happened, but at how much I did 'not' know about frostbite.

If I had been there alone with him, I would have put his feet in a nice warm/hot, pan of water or had him relax in a nice warm bath.

Guess What--Wrong thing to do!!! Very wrong.

Ask me why and I will tell you.

2011 Appoaching and I am not prepared.

I have to rush to the store and get the usual munchies and goodies to snack on.

It is a must for me to bring in the 'New Year' with junk food.

You know the kind. Chips and dips and those little sausages that you stick on toothpicks.

Yum, Yum!

Hope to visit you in the 'New Year'.

Here's wishing you all good things in the year 2011

How are all of my blogger friends doing? Hope all is well with each and every one of you.

Here it is a warm 37degree's, feels more like 27, and I am freezing.

Oh joy, as luck would have it, nothing is working properly. Some stray cats got under my trailer and tore up everything they possibly could, so there is almost no heat coming through my vents. Thank God for blankets!

Needless to say I refuse to let it spoil my Christmas cheer. I tend to be a bit of a Pollyanna and I'm glad that I am because when things go wrong my daughter tends to be the Grinch so it sort of even things out, ha, ha.

I went shopping yesterday and got my grandson his Christmas gift, but I'm still stumped on what to get for some relatives.

I'm afraid Christmas is sneaking up on me way to fast this year. I'm not prepared for it mentally.
My daughter-in -law already has her tree up and decorated and I am still dragging my feet wishing someone else would put mine up this year. I'd love it if my daughter would do it this year but I doubt that's going to happen so I may as well jump in with both feet and get it over with.

So it's time to put my happy face on and get busy.

And to you, my blogger friends,
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I read about Halley's Comet coming through sometime between October 19Th and October 22nd or 23rd, and since it only happens every fifty years or so I really wanted to get a glimpse of it.
After all I certainly won't be around long enough to get a second chance.

Fifty years from now, I would be a hundred and sixteen years old a miracle in itself and frankly as forgetful as I am already, I doubt very seriously at that age, even if I did make it out the door to sit on the steps I would probably forget why I was out there.

Supposedly the best time to view the comet was just before dawn, so I took my one and only chance at viewing this once in my lifetime Sky watchers dream.

I also read that in the south it would probably be viewed best between the twenty-first to twenty third. So I played my own little Russian Roulette and picked the twenty second.

So on the twenty-second at about 5:30a.m. I went outside and sat on my front stairs and waited.

I didn't bother to drag out a telescope.

It was so beautiful and the sky was so clear I couldn't have cared less if a saw a comet or not.

I was consumed in the beauty that I was starring at, at that moment.

The moon was to my right. It was a full moon and it looked extra large, putting off a glow that in itself consumed a good part of the sky around it.

I looked away and turned to my left. Without the glow of the moon in my eyes I could see how full of stars the sky was. I also saw a pattern of some sort made of stars. They were far apart but very definitely a zigzag pattern.

And then it happened, zooming through the sky and right through that zigzag pattern and then on it's way across the sky went something that looked like, what I call a shooting star. I'm not knowledgeable enough about star-watching to know what it was, so I pose the question to you.

What do you think it was?

Was it just that, a shooting star?

Could it have possibly been Halley's Comet?

Or Perhaps even something else?

Next time you use a pair of rubber gloves, you're going to smile when you think of this:

A dentist noticed that his next patient, a little old lady, was
nervous, so he decided to tell her a little joke as he put on his

' Do you know how they make these gloves? ' he asked.

' No, I don ' t, ' she replied.

' Well, ' he spoofed, ' there ' s a building in Canada with a big tank
of latex, and workers of all hand sizes walk up to the tank, dip in their hands, let them dry, then peel off the gloves and throw them into boxes of the right size. '

She didn't crack a smile.

' Oh, well. I tried, ' he thought.

But five minutes later, during a delicate portion of the procedure, she burst out laughing.

' What ' s so funny? ' he asked.

' I was just envisioning how condoms are made! '

(Gotta watch those little old ladies! Their minds are always working!)

Be afraid of old ladies!

Be very afraid!!!!

They have been there and done everything!
