Misc..Etc...Etc...Etc..


Jimmy brought a laundry basket full of these papaya, we brought this one home. YUCKY YUCKY YUCKY... Bob ate it.. not me... they were HUGE, 10 inches long. Do you eat papaya?

If I missed your post yesterday, we were without Internet/TV/Phone for 16 hours. YOWSA! like being thrown back in the 50's.


Can anyone tell me what this is on the ladder? Fort Bratz kids put it up on their roof...
NEWS ALERT!  Our Sunshine came back at 11 AM Friday.. Yippeee


Yes, I know this photo of men taking down the Christmas tree on top of Blake Hospital is not worth showing. BUT.... it was 6 floors up, I was 6 double rows of parked cars away, sitting in my car, with little red pocket camera sitting on steering wheel....  Can't believe it got all the detail from that far.


Below is the HANDICAP stall in the ladies rest room at Blake Hospital. 
The reason for the photo??????
the stall is 3 feet wide and 8 feet long.
Handicap? as in Wheel Chair Accessible? 
NO, I did not have my measuring tape with me.. I counted the 12x12 tiles.
JUST FOR YOU...
you can Thank Rich for being sick in the hospital or you might have missed all this.


Just in case you are wondering.. I was standing up when I took the photo.

Glad you got some sunshine and shudder to think what Fort Bratz are doing with the ladder. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

That papaya looks juicy. Would love to try it. We don't have them here.

We have papaya from time to time. I like it with a little lime juice. In fact, I'll try most anything once.

Best,

I don't know what this is on the ladder. Looks like some sort of spike!!

EG CameraGirl said...

Congrats on getting some sunshine! You were without Internet for 16 hours?? You deserve sunshine!!

I'm not fond of papaya either.

Madi and Mom said...

NOPE I HAVE NEVER HAD PAPAYA....LOOKS LIKE SPAGHETTI SQUASH. LOL
MS AFTER ALLLLLLLL THESE YEARS MOM HAS LEARNED 'IT IS NOT UP TO HER REASON WHY", WITH MS PHOTOS IT IS JUST UP TO HER TO ENJOY. OF COURSE YOU COUNTED THE TILES...BECAUSE YOU DID NOT HAVE A NEWSPAPER RIGHT?
HUGS MADI AND MOM YOUR BFFFS

TexWisGirl said...

you're goofy. :) but, yeah, that stall doesn't seem to fit 'regulation standards!'

don't think i've had papaya. glad you said what it was.

the internet outage would have made me crazy, too. we're addicted.

and that looks like a microphone to me - like they're trying to listen in on folks.

I've never eaten papaya.I'm not keen on tropical fruit. How is Rich? I think I might have missed some of your posts due to on/off internet server problems myself. I keep writing very quickly in case communications are cut off through no fault of my own or the computer.

DeniseinVA said...

That stall picture made me laugh, along with the commentary. I thought Rich was out of hospital. Is he okay? You have a great camera with that kind of zoom. As for papayas, I have never tried them but I do like mangoes. Anything like those? Have a good one :)

SweetMarie said...

we had the cable guy here on Sunday. we've had trouble with our internet, cable and home phone for over a month now. our cable company gave us a month credit for our troubles. :) finally some real customer service.

I can't believe your adult neighbors allow the children to play with a ladder.

Cranberry Morning said...

I do hope that Rich is doing better. As for the tree, why don't they just leave it there?? I don't understand all the taking down and putting up again in 10 months. And yes, I LOVE papaya, but haven't tasted a good papaya since I lived in Bolivia. Those were delicious!

Rose said...

I bet you suffered withdrawal with no internet/tv/phone for 16 hours! I know I would.

I have not tasted papaya...does not look appealing.

Linda said...

You are a crazy kind of wonderful!!!!

Ginny said...

Your blog is playing a song!! I like mangoes but have never tried papaya. But I have learned that with many fruits, the smaller they are the better their flavor is. Bigger is not always better. That stall is a joke, there is no wheelchair that would fit. This is shameful considering it is in a hospital! On the ladder is a big microphone so the brats can record all their mayhem.

Rebecca said...

Never had a papaya but it is very photogenic. I can't wait to hear what FT Bratz does with that...thing... Out sunshine appeared for an hour yesterday and then disappeared, and did the same thing today. :( I am so happy when I see it. I hate when it goes away.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

No I do not eat papaya's but only because I've never tried one. I like Mango's. Great detail from your camera and yes that bathroom stall is very narrow!

DawnTreader said...

I think I've eaten papaya, but I can't remember what it tasted like. I suppose I wasn't too thrilled with it, as I've not kept buying it...? Blander than it looks, perhaps??

Anita Johnson said...

I love papaya...good papaya. Like any fruit, some can be a bit off in taste. I bought a cantaloupe the other day that was terrible. Maybe try a smaller one before you say NO to papaya.

Susannah said...

Hi Sandra......About the ladder.....First thing I thought of - they have a mike and are listening to Sandra and Bob! Geez..I hope not but it sure looks like it. Why would their parents let them play with a ladder? Those are the kind of kids that never get hurt!!!!!

I don't think I have ever had papaya. I had a mango last week and it was so hard and starting to turn brown. I told Jim - no more mangoes for me...I really don't like them.

Hope all is good with you.

Ann Thompson said...

I've never tried papaya before.
I'm laughing now over you standing up when you took that last picture.

A Quiet Corner said...

I'm with you again...yuck to papaya but I would seriously wonder just what that is on their ladder...looks like a piece of surveillance gadgetry!...:)JP

Deb said...

Not a fan of papaya either..hope Rich is doing ok... Hubby measures everything ...he does it in his head...he is a numbers guy... I am not a numbers gal but I e been working on memorizing numbers again I have became really lax about it with so much programmed now days

Betty Manousos said...


I used to not enjoy papaya for the first few times because of the smell and taste, but I seemed to have gotten used to it. your papaya looks tasty. wonderful shoT

Val said...

Yesterday I had a papaya bowl...which included fresh papaya, banana and a splash of lime, all placed nicely in the papaya she'll, it was delicious!!
