Thanks for all your suggestions re. TOPS. I'm going to TRY not to sign up to be secretary. I'll try avoiding the out-going secretary's glare, and wearing an imaginary elephant skin re sharp looks. I'll be there on Thursday morning and will be proud of myself if I can resist taking it on. You'll be... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, This was bound to happen--

At Thursday's T O P S meeting, I ended up volunteering to reorganize the birthday list. These elderly ladies have barely encountered computers, so I was handed several pages of very old-fashioned cursive writing on pages, yellowed with age and marred by score-out marks with " deceased" printed on...

I go to TOPS

I used to go to weight watchers, under the mistaken impression that once I reached goal, I could continue to go there, as a lifetime member, without having to fork out the weekly fee. WRONG! It's only free if you're within a few pounds of your goal. But I was up 20 pounds. So I checked the newspaper... Sign in to see full entry.

Wish me luck!

I'm working on my resume. The library needs someone to do " low man on the totem pole" work on short notice when someone calls in sick. One of the requirements is that you can use a computer. Unfortunately, I never learned to type. What appears here is all produced by my trusty index finger.... Sign in to see full entry.

Thanks for all the contributions to my Oxen Herd!

You gave me some great ones, and if you think of more-- please--share 'em! Thanks. I was just listening to an interview on the radio where a woman kept saying " Also, too!" I get really picky at times about the misuse of language, although I'm sure I do it --also too. Two others that bug me. 1.... Sign in to see full entry.

My Personal Herd of Moronic Oxen

I love Oxymorons. It's such a power-packed little two word punch. I've collected my faves for years. I have around 50. I'd love to hear yours. I was hoping they'd breed-- but they all cancel each other out. Can you give me some? Here are my top twenty:- 1. Act naturally 2. Tight slacks 3. Jumbo... Sign in to see full entry.

Friday Morning in A Small Canadian Town.

It's -17 degrees celsius. The sun is out and the weekend approaches. Life is good. Town will be busy today, as it's payday for those mills which are still functioning. Many have been closed due to the economic downturn. The Seniors received their Government pittance this week, as did those... Sign in to see full entry.

We've taken the daughter and grandson home.

How quiet the house is! And, if a person were inclined that way, he/she might think a little housework in order. I'm pretty lucky that way though! I can turn a blind eye with ease! Since they left, I've found toddler clothes under the couch, toys in my potato bin, and a wash cloth in the cd player!... Sign in to see full entry.

I Made It!

Here I am, overnight at my daughter's place. The drive was just fine. The roads were bare and I just went at my own speed, which, if it bothered others, they had the option to zoom past me in a hail of gravel. I was blasting Pavarotti and Planxty alternately. Once I got out on the highway, I didn't... Sign in to see full entry.

What does it mean where it says " Post an item for Sale?" Is this an Essays For Sale Thing? Research? Proofreading? Or is it " Slightly used X-ercise equipment going cheap?" Free egg boxes? Size nine horse's nostrils? Enlighten me! Sign in to see full entry.
