Do you Get confused????

MJ is good with math!!!


Have you noticed more people talking to themselves in the last couple years? Men and women. I think they are talking to me. Yeah, I found out, they are talking on the phone thru their Blue teeth, or using a blue tooth. LOL Some folk cannot talk on the phone without hand signals as they talk, those confuse more than most, and I think they are ready for the funny farm.

Women’s sizes! I should have added a chapter in my last book on how smart a man must be to shop ‘for’ a woman in clothes. How can anyone dream up so many sizes? Then colors and styles? Panty hose are my favorites. A zillion varieties! Bras? I am lost! Today it was jeans. How can you have a 16 petite? Oh well, I get confused very easily.

It must be my age, because car shopping was just as bad. X model. Then the XL, and Sir we have an XLT also. Well Detroit is cutting back now on the models and makes. I think we lost the Pontiac. We should have lost the Oldsmobile, there is a town named after the Pontiac, I don’t think there is an Oldsmobile, Michigan (or is there?). Should have kept the Pontiac.

Don’t even try to figure the computer printers out. We finally ended up with an HP photosmart,C4640, touchsmart, ‘all in one’ UNIT (whew) Not a printer. It is warranted for a year. That is when it will die, one year and three days. Its predecessor lasted one year thirty days. It goes in the dumpster tomorrow.
Note on printers. I don’t fuss about the printers too much. Just before I gave my business up I bought a XEROX copier, Black & white, used the messy toner and weighed about 200lbs. Price used was $800. New color copier today, $50.I love that part of technology.

When I was teaching I was told to always use the KISS theory. If you don’t know, that is a standard acronym for ‘Keep It Simple Stupid!’. Have you noticed that the KISS theory is not possible with computers, new TV’s, politics, religion, or directions. Shucks, even some Blogs are too complicated for me.
Thanks for allowing me to rant and for reading this drivel.

PS: You NEVER hear this anymore:
Be sure and pull the windows down when you leave, it looks like a shower is coming up.
and then there was.......
Don't forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.

I stay confused. How about Petite Long. I am just as confused. The worse thing is to buy and
not try on and have to take back. You cannot go
by sizes anymore. Buying food is the same way.
No salt, no sugar spices, plain, Salt, Sugar,
with or without and fifteen choices. I can
barely turn my computer on and off. I am a lost
citizen in the new electronic and IPod world.

Be sure to let the dog out before you go to bed. Yes that one that is pretty smart and can count. Helen

I told Joe I am going to have to die before to long cause there was a whole fleet of smart phones that I could never use, and the land line is nearly forgotten. It took me quite a while to figure out where to go to get a land line. I get confused. Last thing the dog goes out.

Funny how you mention pantyhose...LOL

I asked Jeff to pick me up some knee highs at the Dollar Store on his way home from work yesterday to wear to the funeral today...he got the size right but the color wrong...he doesn't know it but I went back and got the right color... he got suntan and it was dark...I can't have dark feet and everything else white as a ghost...LOL I bought a pkg of beige...they were just right...but I am so thankful to have a husband who doesn't mind buying things like that for me :)

Love ya!
