TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM..... social media wedding

Daughter to Dad TEXTING Communication in Todays Generation::
Daddy, I am coming home to get married soon, so get out your check book. LOL
I'm in love with a boy who is far away from me.
As you know, I am in Australia, and he lives in Scotland. We met on a dating website, became friends on Facebook, had long chats on Whatsapp, he proposed to me on Skype, and now we've had two months of relationship through Viber.
My beloved and favorite Dad, I need your blessing, good wishes, and a really big wedding."
Lots of love and thanks,
Your favorite daughter,
Dads reply ....also by texting:
My Dear Lilly,
Like Wow! Really? Cool!
Whatever....., I suggest you two get married on Twitter, have fun on Tango, buy your kids on Amazon, and pay for it all through Paypal.
And when you get fed up with this new husband, sell him on eBay.

O.M.G. i love it!

Circles N Spots

well mojo came back - at least for a little while - and that's ok.  i get to make about 3 cards a day; beats making nothing!  of course, with facebook, blogging is becoming sparse.  almost sad and i still like blogging tho find myself getting fewer and far between in it.

anyway, i did get some playing in, so here ya go....

i treated myself to that circle background die (i LOVE circles and spots), so i played.  added my own little dots and then a sticker.  i love it.

not much else going on.  the complex i live in is making lots of new and nice changes.  they blacktopped all the streets and gave us new stop signs and street signs!  it looks fabulous.  of course, some people are pissing and moaning that they will raise our lot rents and price us out of here, but i doubt it.  we are still one of the cheapest mobile home parks in the state of Illinois.  oh well, can't please everyone.

i'm off to food pantry today.  hope your day is sunny and bright!


 When we get older we think differently? This letter was sent to the Principal's office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you. This story is a credit to all humankind .........especially if you are familiar with the elderly. Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today.

Dear Kean Elementary,

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Springer Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.

The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. Her distress over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God's way of answering my prayers. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my ass.

Thank you for that opportunity.



yeah, i wasn't expecting that either!  LOL

Bow Tie

well, for the next 3 days we are under a high heat index (100 +) warning.   3 days!  i'll take it.  yep.  3 days is better than all summer.  our summer so far has been mild - and weird.  in the 70s and 80s; rainy and sunny.  a mixed bag for sure.  i've had to keep the air on because there is absolutely NO shade around my house and the back of my house is just about all glass.  i AM looking forward to the fall temps when i can open up the house!  even puppy loves laying by the open door.  some mornings have been cool enough to open the door at least but then it's back to the air in a few hours.  again, i'll take it.

i FINALLY got into my room yesterday and actually made 6 cards.  go me LOL.  soooooooooo, let's have a look shall we? ....

needed some guy cards.  the bow tie is a SU set of which the name escapes me at this time.  the ribbons are scraps.  i like it!  but then, i like the color combo anyway.

not much else on my agenda today and i doubt i'll be sitting outside with this high heat and styffling humidity.  guess i'll be back in my room playing for a bit.

hope your day is sunny and fun!
