Honey, I Have a Surprise For You!

Came across this interesting story recently. During lunch at work, I ate 3 plates of beans (which I know I shouldn’t). When I got home, my husband seemed excited to see me and exclaimed delightedly, “Darling I have a surprise for dinner tonight.”

Man Catches Group of Skinny-Dippers in His Pond

An elderly man had owned a large farm in Florida for years. There was a large pond in the back that was perfectly shaped for swimming. The man had fixed the area around the pond up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts and a combination of orange and lime tress…

My First Laptop

I was transferring some old business files to new boxes yesterday when I can across a purchase receipt that was somewhat amusing while being somewhat stomach turning at the same time. It was the receipt for my first laptop, purchased in 1997 from a local company.

Carrying Your Dog’s Poop?

I was driving around today in my neighborhood and saw an older guy walking his dog, leash in one hand and bag of dog doodoo in the other. That is just so wrong. Not that the guy is being responsible and picking up after his dog but that the dog poops while walking in the first place.

Caring For Newborn Babies For Dummies

Now that we have a newborn in the house (our first grandson), I’m finding myself having to brush up a bit on how to properly care for him. Even though we have raised three children, it has been what seems like a lifetime since they were infants.
