The Alien IS HERE

I heard a KNOCK ON THE DOOR! Big Boy ran in the other room, I opened the door and there She Was! She stepped in and before I closed the door I saw this giant THING hovering in the yard. She said

I am an emigrant, from far, far away!
I only came to visit, not to stay.
I caught a ride in this big, BIG TOY,
And am to see The Big BIG Boy
The one who brings so much joy!

#JUST KIDDING@MADsnapperhahahaha

Bob got a new Drone. Alien Me was created in messenger on Christmas Eve.

What else could I say to go with these photos????

The Drone was a DEAL on Black Monday, it came in an email. $149.99 on sale for 49.99 free shipping..

  because of concern about the privacy in comments, this UPDATE is to let you know, the camera is still in the box, we live in a city and there is no where to use it. He flys drone only in the fields at Bray Park.... he will not be peering in windows..

Kings Mantle Draft Dump

Photos from June 16, 2018.. the photos  have dawdled in drafts for months. Now they visit you via End of Year Draft Dump ..

It rained for 3 days, the last week of December 2018. Putting on my makeup, I realized the Weather Lady was talking and I had not been listening. I BLOCK the TV mentally because it talks constantly.

I yelled down the hall, What did she say????    the answer came back... "YEAH"

I walked down the hall and said.  "that was not a Yeah Or No question.
He says "well what was the question?" I told him, he said " Rain all day, colder tonight, high is 60's"

I said "well you knew the answer, so if you did not hear the question why did you say YEAH?

I still don't know the answer.

Christmas Day Walkabout

Walking on Christmas day was fantastic,  a day fit for paradise, Brilliant sun, blue skies, temp was 73, no humidty.. no wind, just me and the peace and quiet.

A tree in the neighborhood had many crystal lighted balls, they were sparkling in the sun, but I was using my cell, not a zoom lens.

The plan for the last 34 years has been, if I die first, Bob will buy a Harley, after selling the house and moving in a houseboat.

The Invisible MAN

Christmas Eve, we went out to eat, when we got home I said, lets take an USSIE, we have no photos of us together, since 2007.. This was the first one, The Invisible Man

The invisible man had no interest in relationships, because he feared becoming apparent!

The invisible man married the invislbe woman, their kids were nothing to look at either.

Bob the stick man...…...

This is the only one I got, he would not let me take another, or move to another place, or go outside. He said I did smile! Bob and Sandra December 24, 2018 our first and probably last USSIE/selfie

Prince of Peace, Immanuel

Thank you, Prince of Peace, for the simple life changing message of your love for us.....

Somewhere in your silent night
Heaven hears the song your broken heart has cried
Hope is here, just lift your head
For love has come to find you
Somewhere in your silent night

From Heaven's height to manger low
There is no distance the Prince of Peace won't go
From manger low to Calvary's hill
When your pain runs deep, His love runs deeper still
He has always loved you, child
And He always will
Lyrics from Somewhere in Your Silent Night, Casting Crowns

Flashlight Photography 1

Flashlight Photography of Santa On Tiptoe

Each day when we walk Big Boy, we pass a house with a lemon tree in the back yard, several times I remarked on the size of the lemons, how huge they are and how I would love to have one. I even mentioned my aunt had one just like it and retold the story of the time I asked for a few and she gave me ONE...
Yesterday, as we walked past.. Bob said
"Look, they have a lemone tree in the backyard" Did you see how big the lemons are"               
I will not repeat my answer, you can fill in the blanks...

SUPER Flashlight! OH MY

I showed you the two knives we got from my son, this is one of the set of 2 flashlights they gave us.. there are not many people who have a flashlight as big as their Chrismtas tree... and WE HAVE TWO...

These are super-duper flashlights. they zoom to tiny and out to FLOODLIGHT and are BRILLAINT LED lights and we can see the tippy top of all our 4 story trees. This shows Santa on tiptoe in spotlight, I did not take a photo of the tippy top of tree, but I did look at all of them

We were not sad when our old flashlight died, we were delighted. ho ho ho

UPDATE: be sure to READ GINNY COMMENT below. I wish  I had written it HERE,

He had a hardtime getting it in his sack.

Walk A Mile - another snowman

There was a man cutting the grass in this yard that is all decorated with Snowmen that will not melt, and snowflakes in the Palm tree. I smiled and waved and he stopped the lawn mower, I started yada yada, blah blah chatty cathy style... and he smiled and bobbled his head and replied In Spanish, neither of us knew what the other said, but he knew I loved the decorations.

I HAD NO IDEA, he was the lawn man... heh heh heh.. he had no idea what I was saying or Why I was Taking Photos of the decorations..

Arnicare Gel

This gel is made in France and made from the Arnica Plant in Africa. My doctor recommended it for my neck pain and I am happy to say it works. It can be bought over the counter, with out prescription.

I am sitting at the computer , Bob stands in the door and says "i am taking Big Boy for his walk"
I answered "wait, I will go with you, as he turned to walk away, I said did you see the new pick of BB on the desk top?
 and he kept walking.
I stand up and storm down the hall.. Did you hear me? he says Yes I heard you, I ignored you just like you did not answer me about going on the walk, all you said was come see a photo. All you do is sit at that computer................ you can imagine for your self how this escalated.

And HE says I never listen...……. I do have to say, I needed this gel because I spend to much time at the computer. I am cutting back. ha ha

Walmart Incident

M doctor suggested I wear this when at the desktop. It reminds me to sit with head straight. It works
I bought the travel pillow at Wal-Mart a couple years ago, and have used it to hold my kindle when I read.
Walmart Shopping Story from this past Saturday.

 Saturday I pulled a card of drip pans off one of the hooks and ripped a hole in my finger with a staple. Dripping blood, I said to the young man stocking shelves, Do you have a Band-Aid handy?

He stared at me, shaking his head and said "no English' I said that's ok and started to walk away... he ran after me saying Wait, I help and he walked to the man pushing the sweeper thing on the floor, and pointed at me, bobbing his head.

The sweeper that I talk to every Saturday,  turned off the machine said Good morning, and I showed him the dripping blood, he said come over here and stepped over to the pharmacy where they give the Flu shots, got a band aid and opened it for me and helped me place it.  I said that young man was so nice, but how does he work if he can't speak English. He said he speaks broken English but probably did not know what to do with a bleeding finger. Or the word for Band-Aid...

Pygmy Palms Walk a Mile

walk a mile pygmy palms
We climbed in my Kia at 5:17 AM headed for the daily YMCA visit.

The dry sound of clicking is what we heard when I twisted the key... OH NO! she says quietly 😁 I Told you the battery is old and to replace it. HE says  that was a few months ago. YES, it was she says quietly 😉

We transfer to his truck, it starts. The problem now is. I DON"T RIDE with him driving. If we are together I is dark. HE says... I don't ever drive in the DARK...
I reply... Don't even go there, I am already upset enough. I say their is a detour, he says I KNOW... we get to it, he starts to turn the wrong way. NO, I say QUIETLY 😁 get in the other lane, noooo not that one … again he says I don't ever drive in the dark..... sighhhhh

The reason I don't ride with him, is he thinks his name is Dale Earnhardt, in his other life before me, he was a drag racer and the president of their Racing club in PA.... He has admitted he was impeached/fired as president BECAUSE he broke the RULES by drag racing on The Streets.

I get to the pool and tell this story to my captive audience friend, and she says who is Earnhardt?

Do you know?   to be continued
Odd palm, no idea what kind

Battery continued

When we get home, Bob removes the battery from the KIA, drives to Advance Auto Parts, brings it home and installs it. YAY! for an old drag racer/mechanic that can do that.

I say How much was the battery? He says 160.00 WHAT????? I thought it was 129.99... He says that was what it was last time.

How old was the battery? we don't know! I run a search on my blog BECAUSE I post Every Thing That Happens and find it if FIVE years OLD...

I say where is the receipt? reading it before I put it in the glove box, it says 129.99. I say why did you say it was 160.00? it's 129.99... he says what was the total? I say 140.00. He says you said 129.99

I say the rest is TAX and 1.50 to cover throwing it away... so the total was 140 why did you say 160. that is what I saw,...   NOW you question why I don't ride with him driving in the dark????

Tip below.....
DID YOU KNOW? you can search your blog by typing in the search at the top left where the B is? see above. I do it all the time. When I searched all post with KIA in it I found 87 million posts. Today is 87,001...…..

TOPS Christmas Party

My son has created a monster, when he taught me to wave at my cell phone to take selfies. Sharon and I went to the rest room, together as women do, and I sat my cell on the counter and Taught Her How, or make that how NOT to take seflies. We had a fit of the giggles, as we tried to lift our knees high enough to see the leggings, and went back to the party. The odd square is the photo Sharon took when I said just say Kimchee while she was taking the pic of Me and David. She said it did not work. I said say it Smile, and we all DID...

did you notice it is Dec 13 party and we all have on sandals?

I said David, come take a photo of us in our black tops and Chrismtas leggings. Then Sharon took one of David and I. Then we asked Lisa to come get in the Leggins and Black tops photo. can you tell Why?????
the funny thing was, David took the above pic with my cell, and gave it back, I said take one with Lisa's and he did, it was 2 minutes apart. see below that we all three posed exactly the same way the second time...
Ginny asked what did we eat at the TOPS Take off pounds Sensibly Christmas Party. see below
We ate off a buffet, the crackers and rolls were all Healthy Ones, I can't remember the names. Each of us brought a LEGAL Dish. Yes way to much but we had to choose what we wanted and everyone skipped breakfast, it was a brunch. This is not all, there were several things I can't remember. Before you ask, this was not typical of what we eat. Our party was much like any other, fun food, not balanced diet we live on daily.

Chicken Salad on Rolls
Fruit Salad
Cheese and Cracker
Crunchmaster Crackers and Almond Butter
Brocoli Salad
Cheeseball and Crackers
Star Fruit
Fresh Pineapple
Fresh fruit tray
Diabetic Apple Pie with no sugar or Artificial sweetener
Vega Bite Cookies
