Buzz, Humor & Bargain

While everyone else’ tomatoes are growing like crazy, my flowerless, due to sunless, plants aren’t doing much at all.  The best one had it’s top eaten up before I woke up this morning.  I am not happy about the gardening here, and I love to garden.  I will not spend the remainder of my life here, I hope.

Hubby is all signed up for Social Security.  Apparently I don’t get those 40% payments I thought I did.  Wasn’t counting on it, so no worse off.  In less than two years I’ll collect my own.  Keep wondering if I should sign up before they cut off all new recipients.

Remember the wall oven I was supposed to have installed last Saturday.  It got here, and went right back.  The frontage was way too harrow and left a 1 1/2″ gap on it’s left side.  Just didn’t work and looked ridiculous.  Not only am I devastated, I have to pay a restocking fee.  By restocking they mean put back on floor with the other clearance items.  Grrrr

Today we go to Social Security and sign Hubby up.  66 next month.  We want to check our options.  I don’t get the choices.  I can apparently collect 40% on his, but in two years will I be able to collect the whole amount on mine, which is higher?  Need a person.  Wish us luck.  At least Hubby won’t feel obliged to work overtime 5 mights a week anymore.  Back to work full time on 8/23.    How the hell dd we get to be this old anyway?????

Still sitting around being hot.  Is this the craziest summer, or what?  I’ve been playing at Sam’s Club Auctions all morning.  Placed some bids, but kind of home I get outbid, because I don’t remember what I bid on.  Something tells me I bid way low on everything…….whew!

I did order the following for my beloved Kindfe Fire.

  DOG FOR SALE . .    .
A guy is driving around the    back woods of Montana    and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: ‘Talking Dog    For Sale ‘He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in    the backyard.
The guy goes into the backyard    and sees a nice    looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
‘You talk?’ he asks.
‘Yep,’ the Lab replies.
After the guy recovers from    the shock of hearing a    dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s    your story?’
The Lab looks up and says,    ‘Well, I discovered    that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so    I told the CIA.
In no time at all they had me    jetting from country    to country, sitting in rooms with spies and    world leaders, because no one figured a dog    would be eavesdropping.’
‘I was one of their most    valuable spies for eight    years running…
But the jetting around really    tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle    down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security,    wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.
I uncovered some incredible    dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.’
‘I got married, had    a mess    of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’
The guy is amazed. He goes    back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.
‘Ten dollars,’ the guy    says.
‘Ten dollars? This dog is    amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’
‘Because he’s a Bullshitter.    He’s never been out of the yard’

Went to 7/11 and mixed flavors in my little gift Slurpee.  It was nice, and will probably enjoy it next year too.  I usually just go to 7/11 for coffee.

I did follow the Slurpee with a trip to the gym.  I didn’t do as much as I wish I could have, but I did lat pulls, and stretched out my bad shoulder.   A bit of triceps, and then just did treadmill for a little bit.  I may not say this later, but my shoulder fells soooo much better, best it’s felt in ages, though less great than earlier.  I couldn’t used as much weight as I used to or stretch my bad arm out fully, but feel I did what I could.  Next time I’ll be able to do more.  (next morning – shoulder not as good, but better than before)

I’ll let you know if it happens.  Hubby is home today, and I want him to take me to the gym.  We shall see.  If I go, I’ll earn the free Slurpee below.  I need him to come with me because otherwise I’d need a stepladder to reach the equipment.  Being short s***s.

**********

Remember today is 7/11, and 7/11 is giving away free Slurpees in the 7.11 oz size.  (I’ll bet that’s really a 12 oz cup)

Quick Humor

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GUILTY OF LOOKING AT OTHERS YOUR OWN AGE AND THINKING, SURELY I CAN’T LOOK THAT OLD?
WELL . . . YOU’LL LOVE THIS ONE.
MY NAME IS ALICE, AND I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST.
I NOTICED HIS DDS DIPLOMA ON THE WALL, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME. SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK-HAIRED BOY WITH THE SAME NAME HAD BEEN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SOME 30-ODD YEARS AGO.
COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?
UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT.
THIS BALDING, GRAY-HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE.
AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ATTENDED MORGAN PARK HIGH SCHOOL.
‘YES. YES, I DID. I’M A MUSTANG,’ HE GLEAMED WITH PRIDE.
WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?’ I ASKED.
HE ANSWERED, ‘IN 1975. WHY DO YOU ASK?
YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!’, I EXCLAIMED.
HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.
THEN, THAT UGLY,
OLD,
BALD,
WRINKLED FACED,
FAT-ASSED,
GRAY-HAIRED,
DECREPIT
SON-OF-A-BITCH
ASKED,
‘WHAT DID YOU TEACH???
