I really enjoy reading Blogs. But some folk just have a way to draw you in with a good or a cute story. Sometime Paula can make you blow your coffee thru your nose. Did you read the one about blue jeans? Of course I am not sure if they are Overall pants, dungarees or blue jeans. But isn’t it stupid to sell worn out clothes as new at four times the price of good pants? Let me word that different, isn’t it strange for someone to pay 4 times the price for ragged clothes. Some of these folks would laugh at me for looking at Goodwill!

That Reminds me of the head line on AOL today. ‘Somebody’ (I didn’t recognize the name nor picture) pulled a “FASHION NO NO” while on vacation. I saw nothing wrong with the picture. I gripe about this stuff a lot to Sherry, my stand is, “Wear what you are comfortable with, and what you want to wear, it is no body’s business, dadgummit I will wear what I want to.” Says I.

Quietly and a little under her breath she says, “That is obvious!”

I’m always wondering, is that a jab or a compliment?????----------------
It think her answer to my last question is, “Well if you don’t know…………………”

Sometimes I think I lose an argument and don’t realize it.

(JUST FOR MEN: do you ever feel like you have been had?)

Good day today, Sun out, but still pretty cold for Florida.
Hope you are well and thanks for coming by the Blog.

PS:Don't hear this much either....

Hush your mouth! I don't want to hear words like that! I'll wash your mouth out with soap!

It is time for your system to be cleaned out. I am going to give you a dose of castor oil tonight.

If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, you'll get another one when you get home.

I too wonder why folks buy and/or pay for ragged clothes...and I for one refused to buy them for my kids or grandkids...if they want them bad enough they can pay for them LOLOL..sheesh...told them they could probably find the same rags in parts of Goodwill or the Thrift Store for less money..now no fault with these stores...they do a good turn...and like you Jack...I love my bloggers...each one is so very unique and special!!! yeah..you too..LOL..Hugs from Ora and him who????

I did say behave!! Our weatherman just said we will have more snow and by tomorrow night and wind chills of 40 below And I hope he added windchill. The farmers aLMANAC predicted this for wide spread area especially Florida.

What a joy to read. To be honest with you I do spend more money upon obtaining Japanese Green Tea than paying for a pair of jeans, which currently did cost me about 25 Dollar.
Visiting the uncle of me wife, we were told that back in his youth *he's now 80 years of age* they were made to eat pieces of chilly pepper if they said something bad, instead of having it washed with soap.
Can't wait "Forever" to arrive ;) Please have a nice Wednesday.

Oh boy my Mama believed big in cleaning us out especially if we got grouchy. John and I love to shop at thrift stores. When someone tells me my bouse is cute I get a kick out of telling them where I bought it and how much I paid for it, Some people turn their nose up.

You need to share Paula's link then. I haven't blown coffee out the nose in a long time. Usually not awake enough. I have blown sprite out the nose once. (I had asked Katy who was singing that song on the radio as we sipped our drinks going happily down the road. She said "Beyonce". I had never heard of the new singer and repeated back "The Yarn Say, who?" Katy caught off guard spit Sprite all over the front dash and I got so tickled I did the same". We were laughing so hard we could not catch our breath and we were sticky too. lol

I read Paula's blog also and she does keep you laughing. Never go my mouth washed out with soap. Knew better than to say what I shouldn't or there would be a spanking. Helen

Rose said...

Yeah,share Paula's blog email address with us. I haven't blown coffee out of my nose in years! LOL

I love Goodwill, Thrift shops and garage sales....if it wasn't for those things growing up and even now...I wouldn't have much..LOL I love being able to tell someone I got a shirt or something for $1.00 and they thought it was sooo cute! It pays to be a bargain shopper :)
