Any relation to Rita Hayworth?


Hope you all had a good Friday.


Our weather was Heaven today!!! 67 balmy degrees baby!!
I was rockin' the air conditioner in the truck .


It's supposed to be 70 for the entire weekend. WOOO HOOOO!!!!


That's "porch cleanin', window washing and cleaning out truck" weather. And maybe Sunday ,it'll be "lay on the dock and read " weather.

***************************************************************************
Naturally it was another thrilling and busy day here. What did I do today??

oh yeah... this morning ,my husband called and woke me up at the crack of dawn. (Thanks for that ,dear)

I was right in the middle of dreaming about going "somewhere" but then couldn't even remember where I was about to go. damn it. it's like missing the end of a movie.


I looked at my hideous roots and once again, said "man, you need to color your hideous roots" buttttt.... I had just FOUND my missing list. So ...the roots could wait one more day .



I emptied the litter boxes, did the trash, scrubbed both bathrooms. (can we say DISGUSTING?) there is something in the water here that leaves a pink scum on everything. WTH IS that? I sometimes drink that water. (and so do the cats)


Then I vacuumed the whole house. Oh wait, I digress.....before I could vacuum I had to crawl all over the house ,and sweep every nook and cranny of the house because during my lovely 2 weeks of the flu ,somehow one of my diamond ear rings came out and I didn't notice it.


So, I searched every inch of this house and NO ,I did not find it. I even felt the entire floor of my closet ...but nope it is GONE.


I guess I am just cursed with ear rings. Remember the sapphire ones burned up ,in the truck fire?


Ok, where was I? Then I mopped the house, cleaned the living room , cleaned out the fridge,did laundry, crossed all that OFF my list and by then it was after noon.
I don't eat until lunch time, so it was LUNCH time!!

***********************************************************************************************************
I went to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants , as soon as they see me, they already know what I want. Like Cheers. :)
My sister doesn't like me to blog about the homeless, but man, do I wish I had brought the camera today.


I was seated right behind one of our towns famous characters.


Picture it, older guy with a full gray beard, skinny as a rail from walking all over town ,every single day .Wears spandex shorts and fishnet (women's ) tops , while sporting headphones and dancing on the street corners.



One day ,I saw him in a thrift store. He was wearing some pinstriped ladies slacks , a black blouse and a black (ladies) hat with a polka dot band. (like Jacki O would have worn)



Another time I saw him at the mall. I was finishing my cigarette before I walked into J.C. Penny's and this older couple walked by to go inside , as he was walking by.


He said ,to the elderly woman "are you any relation to Rita Hayworth?"
I thought it was a great line! lol


Ok, so back to the restaurant today. It was late, for lunch so it was just him, me ,and two couples in the whole place.

So he gets up to leave and he's pulling at his workout pants showing the manager something about them. I couldn't hear that part.......but then just as loud as you please ,he says "I do it for my husband."
Looks so sexy??? Maybe.


The manager, the two waiters and all of us ..try to stifle our giggles until he gets outside .I just said "allrighty then"

One guy blurted out" WHAT did that guy just say? "

One lady blurted out "watch out for the social butterfly's out there."

This is another guy that I see EVERY day. But I had no idea he had a husband. :)
Admit it......you're dying to see his picture , aren't you?
If you don't admit it, you're a lying blando.


**********************************************************************************************************
Last night I watched a movie on Unbox called Jeremy (?) I think.


HIDEOUS!!! It was about this woman who had just had her second baby. Jeremy (the son) was a 9 year old sociopath ,trying to ruin everyone's life.And doing a great job of it.

But ......the soundtrack was this horrible ,depressing (Jeremy playing) piano music. And then ...the ending was also horrible. One of those...non endings. The movie needed another hour to tell you how it ended. ACK!!!

***********************************************************************************************************
This morning I printed all the yard sale ads and then forgot to bring them with me. Maybe tomorrow. :)
Have a great Saturday peeps!
Luv me

Now about that picture.............

You painted a pretty good picture, though.

Last summer we had a young man in our neighborhood who mowed his lawn with a riding lawnmower. He wore a pink tutu and a black halter top. Every week the same. The house sold over the winter to a nice young couple from southern CA.

That is a dumb thing to write in your comment box. I'm senile, you know.

Mary,
I wish "I" had a picture of your local character too.:)

Senility rocks. I just try to roll with it.

myomyohi said...

1) Don't be jealous but it snowed here off and on all day....

2) Maybe we need some spandex and fishnet....

Smocha said...

Myoh,

Oh , I will TRY to NOT be jealous of that . :)

And yeah, I think if anyone needs spandex and fishnet ..it is us. Not some bearded guy.

OH! or maybe that's it, maybe we need a beard. :)))

SOUL: said...

okaaaaayyyyy----

perhaps a person has to actually TAKE their boat places to get the tire thing---
boat TRAILER tires-- sorry. geesh.
you crack me up-- but you're right-- senility does rock... mine gets worse by the day! it adds to my humor tho.

the necklace-- maybe this will remind you-- your boys were very young-- you took a bus to my house-- they got lice on the bus--- we were de-lousing the house-- didn't open the bag--in fear of reinfesting the house---so kissed the chain goodbye!!! thanks a lot. :))

ummmm... what else??? oh-- i love the sketch of your homeless guy-- much better than a photo-- at least it leaves the guy a little dignity :))

anyhow--- do you ever remember michael sleeping more than a couple hours after a seizure? WTH??? i have slept the better part of a WEEK!!!
HEP ME!!

btw-- i watched house--- not ghost whisperer-- i dont even know if that came on.. wth was i thinkin?
do you ever watch house? it's good.

i wish i had a guy in a tutu mowin his lawn around here-- somethin like that just might keep me awake!

well.. that or a lawn fairy!!! :))

simonsays said...

So much in this post, I nearly forgot it all! I like your stories about the colorful people that run around your town - and this guy sounds like quite a character! Yes, we do need his picture...

I have the pink scum from my water too, although I try not to drink the water here.

I hope your 70 degree weekend is awesome, we are supposed to hit the low 40's today, woo hoo! But, more snow tomorrow night...

I hope you find your earring. I should send Mark to help you, he is the MASTER of finding lost earrings...and we all need to be the master of something...lol

Some of the homeless can be quite colorful, can't they. Most of the time I feel so bad for them unless they are obnoxious.
I have pretty good water here...thank goodness. No smell and nice and clear. Aren't you down there with all that water that's supposed to be HEALING? Maybe its the minerals or something.
Sigh...sure wish I had your energy, girl. Have a great weekend!

Smocha said...

Soul, Ahhh yes..NOW I remember the necklace. I sure seem to have a crappy memory. You better write stuff down ,cuz apparently in 4 years you won''t remember a thing. :)

Yeah, I never saw Ralph sleep for a week over a seizure....
but A. he was used to it.
B. probably on meds that helped counter the effect.
C.he was naturally a more hyper person than you are.

I also watched House. i love that asshole. :)

Your post was so long ,that's the only way I could remember it all.

Get your update done laze!

Love me

Jamie,

I think the ear ring is gone forever. I have put off vacumming for weeks now...hoping to find it . But it's just too gross up in here. lol
Today, my bedroom WILL be vacuumed.

My neighbor G5, has solved the mystery of the pink scum.
HERE it is:

Lena - Interesting bit about the teeth of cats. Please count the teeth in your poor deformed cat's mouth and let us know how many he has. Didn't want to clutter up your nice blog with this science/construction lesson, so here goes:
The pink stuff on your plumbing appliances: These condos were built with copper plumbing - which is good. Very good. The building code requires, because copper pipe is made in an industrial type plant, usually filthy, that the plumber, when all has been installed and leak tested, to "shock" the pipes with a fairly concentrated hydrochloric acid solution (they call it muriatic acid, but it IS hydrochloric acid). The acid when it hits water releases chlorine which kills all the germs and bugs in the pipes. They let it sit in there for couple days to give every bug a chance to die. Then they flush it out with lots of water through the pipes. Well, the chlorine also reacts with the copper and forms copper chlorate and voila! copper chlorate is deep pink, almost red. This chlorate will leach out from the inner pipe surface and leach out for a pretty long period, forming a pink ring in your commodes and a pink spot wherever you have a drip on a light colored surface. Sound familiar? Yes. Eventually all the chlorate will leach out - the more you use your pipes the faster it will leach out. Our pink stuff finally went away last fall - took about 2 years. Now you know. It is harmless anyway and is at a low concentration. The copper is prolly good for you. G5


Who knew???
Have a good day!!

Val,
The homeless around here seem to have money from somewhere. New shoes show up , they smoke and always have a bag of takeout food in hand.

Yesterday, I didn't want to have to pump freakin gas , so i didn't go far from home. But today I shall bring the camera and see if I can spot "graybeard" :)

Y'all try to stay warm!
