Meme Bought Silly String

First of all, who is Meme?  The name Meme is what my first Grandson gave me when he was little.  When he would ask me for something, it would come out as “Me. Me.” Since I always answered that by giving him something, my name to him became Meme.  So from then on all of my Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren have called me, Meme, at least to my face.  Lord knows what else they might call me when I’m not around, but then the possibilities are far too many to imagine. My Youngest Great Grandson turned one on May 1, 2019, and a birthday party was held for him April 28, 2019....

What’s Going On Here?

As you all know, I have been spending a lot of time typing on a Memoir but I also like to do Widow’s Blogs, some funny, some just thoughts. Well, here’s the deal, I decided the best place for me to write the Memoir and Blogs was to relocate my computer to a table in my game room.  The game room was a large detached garage which we converted to an apartment then later took out a wall to make one large room as a game room and it also has a full kitchen and bathroom. My husband’s full-size pool table sits in the middle of this room.  It also has a treadmill, weight machine,...

Are There Secrets to the Polar Plunge?

I watched several videos January 1st. shared on Facebook by The Geneva Shore Report, a newspaper based in the town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. These videos were of the crowds of people in Lake Geneva getting ready then actually doing the annual Polar Plunge. Even though I live in Texas, I love this newspaper.   They share the news, weather, and special happenings of their town in videos daily and in their paper published once a week in print and online. The newspaper is owned by James Strauss who is a gifted author of many books and totally admired by his readers.  He can absolutely write...

Some Assembly Required, Really?

Some Assembly Required, Really?

What does the word “some” mean?  Unknown or unspecified?  Evidently, “some assembly required” has changed since I last put something together. Maybe I expect too much or don’t understand how it all works.  Why would you ship a product in a box that is big enough for it to be fully assembled, if it needs to be put together?  Just shove those pieces in a smaller box! The picture of the play kitchen I ordered looked like a “one-piecer” to me.  Dang thangy is made of plastic, just make a mold big enough for the whole “shebang” and pour in the...

Why You Can’t Take Me Anywhere

Anyone who knows me knows that I see the humor in everything and maybe laugh out loud when it shouldn’t happen. Sometimes, I don’t start out trying to be funny but then it just happens. A couple of days ago, it happened, not just once but every time a thought came into my head and believe me, thoughts don’t just happen there very often. Okay, my brother-in-law and his wife invited me to take a trip up the country to attend a funeral.  Bless their hearts, they had no idea what they were in for.  Normally, they share a quiet ride together when they take road trips, but this...
