Good Fence Thursday or NOT


This  "most embarrassing" fence  is in OUR yard and is my hubby's DUMP... things that need to go out to the curb for trash pick up..(SO I SAY)...           "what if I need it some time" (so he says)
.
Rusted Chair... 2 years (who would sit on it? that's if it would even unfold)

Pool Pump ...(died 5 years ago, may need the PARTS) HA!

Bike ... not ridden in 5 plus years (he might repair it) HA!

He does use the gas cans and lawn mower and the blessing is no one sees this but HIM...
this is HIS corner.. his plant hospital and junk HOLE. 
I did have to walk out there to take these photos... Shudder with me NOW

Mad Mad Almost Art

MAD Creation 1

I decided to see what I could create by using a white square to start with in PicMonkey Design... and using only what is included in PM... I give you the results, such as they are.

MAD Creation 2
 Why are frogs so happy?   They eat whatever bugs them...

What is a frogs favorite game?   Croak-et

Creation cross processed 
What is the difference between a cat and a frog?
A cat has nine lives, but a frog croaks every night.

Creation boost

Tingles anyone?

Link to Hair brushing

UPDATE! I have to mute the sound or it doesn't work. the whisper makes me crazy

At age 8, I discovered it made my scalp tingle when my four year old brother smoothed the pages of the hymnal to entertain himself during church. 
And that when the little girl smoothed her mothers hair in the seat in front of me I got that same tingle.

I also noticed the same tingle on scalp/arms when watching the hair dresser brush someones hair.

This was my deep dark secret because I thought there was something wrong with me..


Link to Towel folding 

I had no idea others felt this or that this has a name, ASMR.
See below for definition  

I stumbled on the Hair video by accident and there are hundreds of these videos. my favorite is the HAIR BRUSHING at the top of this post. I am not the only one to feel this since  it has been viewed almost 2 million times

Some of the videos have been viewed over 3 million times.

Have you ever heard of this? Does any thing give you tingles and relax you?

Search YouTube for ASMR and let me know if anything gives you tingles. Try the Hair link above, for a few seconds and let me know if you tingle.  If you do watch one, I find I like it better on mute..

Tales of MadSnapper


I was such a beautiful Baby but we were so poor my mother kept me in a basket. No wonder I am a "basket case"


I grew up in Hawaii but when I moved to the mainland I changed from hula dancer......


to a model.......


After a career as  a  SKY DIVER...I had to rest...


All this is only a dream and I grew up to be reader of books, Now If only I could stay awake long enough to read the book.. 

Thank you AdornaPic for helping me tell my story.

Sneaky Hubby took this pic of me about 8 years ago I think. Note a book not Kindle so we know it is more than 2 years old.

 Each day after lunch I pile up in my pillows and read my Kindle, and noonish on Thursday my eyes got heavy, I laid the Kindle in my lap and was in the never never land of deep doze and POW KABAM... a bolt of lighting shook every window in the house and scared the NAP right out of me.

Will You Wait With Me?


Our Local, 1 mile from home Wendy's takes 1 minute per car to go through the line.. 
My math skills verified this because I was 9th in line with 4 behind me and it took me 9 minutes to get to the window and pay and leave...


Things to do while waiting 9 minutes...

1. Count Cars Waiting

2. Take photos of Goodwill Store and Parking lot (lucky you, I deleted them)
3. Take photo's of Tag numbers parked because the night before I saw them do that in a movie we watched. (lucky you, I deleted them)

4. Listen carefully to the woman in SUV that ordered for 2 adults 2 children. (I will spare you those details even though I know them)

5. Read sign and make decision I do NOT want the  new Cod sandwich combo advertised on the step in sign

6. Pull to the  crackling, hardly understand what they say, thingy and when the first thing out of her mouth is, 
"Good morning, would you like to try our new Cod Sandwich Combo?" 
Say 
"NO! I already made that decision 3 minutes ago while starting at the sign (KIDDING) but that is what I wanted to say...


7. Drive home, eat burger/fries/frosty 
(mine was vanilla, just so you know)

8. Upload pics, delete all but this one and play in Picmonkey, create this post 
AND for you number...

9. File this post  under TMI (to much information)
