I just had one of those days when every idiot on the face of the earth just had to cross my path. It started this morning, I was trying to get into my car to go to work, and the old man next door(who is more then an idiot but that's another blog) strolled in to moan about the lawn service I have to fertilize my grass.
Now I have noticed that they hadn't been doing a very good job, and I have some weedage along the left side of my driveway. I was going to make another call to them and complain when I got home this evening to have them take care of it. But Old Man Idiot neighbor came over and started bitching !!! He's just one of those people who isn't happy unless he's complaining.
Anyway I told him, " Look you ! I am neither blind nor stupid, and I am going to call them in due time. But, when I call them I will inform them that if you do so much as come out and tell them what to do, that they send you the bill."
Needless to say he moaned about my statement, which isn't surprising, until I went on to say that I pay the lawn service not him. If he's going to interfere, either he pays them, or he can fertilize my lawn for free. I excused myself and headed off to my job.
The Walmart is in the same area as the grocery store I work for and often I go thru their parking lot to get to the parking lot for my store. ( Yes Billy, I have a WalMart story today)
Well today when I was driving thru the Walmart parking lot, I encountered Kamikaze Idiot.
I was driving less then 5 MPH, when an Asian lady and her three children were coming out of the Walmart. I stopped and gave them the right of way. The three children saw me and stopped, which told me that these children were intelligent and knew to look both ways before crossing. But their mother, Kamikaze idiot wasn't paying attention, and just kept moving. Even though I was at a complete stop, when she looked my way she literally jumped out of her skin. She was surprised that cars were actually moving in the Walmart lot. Well DUH!!! If she has some sort of a death wish, I just hope she doesn't do her Kamikaze thing when I'm around.
I worked my shift with the usual annoyances, but as I was leaving the parking lot to come home, I encountered a whole new crop of idiots. When I get ready to leave, I always wait a minute or two, and look in back of me, because there may be a person pushing a cart of groceries to their car, and they may be moving kind of slow, or one of the cart people may be out rounding up the carts to take inside. I basically make sure I don't hit anyone while backing out of my space. Well, I pulled out of my space, and started driving up the lane, when I'm In A Hurry So I Don't Care If You're Driving Up The Lane Idiot, starts backing out and almost smashes into the front drivers side of my car !!!! Needless to say I layed on my horn, and he stopped. I had seen him in the store earlier when he was doing his grocery shopping, and he was giving the deli manager a hard time. So it just figured that he would cross my path also.
So I get on to RTE 30, after sitting thru 3 cycles of lights, that's how backed up traffic was, when I got behind, Miss I Am Going To Drive 30 Miles Per Hour In A 50 Mile Per Hour Zone. Rte 30 is a 2 lane highway, and in that particular area traffic is kind of heavy at 5 pm, but traffic still moves at 50 miles an hour. The lady driving slowly looked to be in her mid 20's and needless to say she did get the one finger wave from several drivers that she had annoyed besides me. But as slow as she was driving, she probably is still on her way home at this minute.
But I can say that I did make it home safely, and fortunately I don't have anyplace to go this evening. If I did have to leave, I know more then likely I would find a whole new crop of idiots.
I hope you all had a better day then I did.
Blessings and Hugs

Why do we always come here?
This we'll never know.
It's kind of like a torture,
to have to watch the show.
Statler and Waldorf of the Muppet Show
Torture in a relationship, be it in the form of family, friendship or a romantic relationship is not for me. Do I like the way it feels? NOPE!!! Not at all.
Love in any of the above mentioned forms is not supposed to hurt. In fact, I've been known to distance myself from those who I recognize ans haveing the potential to cause harm and/or discomfort to me. I don't like it, and I don't need it in my life.
Yet I have watched people torture themselves in very unhealthy relationships, shake my head and wonder why they continue them at all. A perfect example is my friend Ruth, whom I've been friends with for well over 30 years. When we first met, she was married to the mother of all jackasses, and to this day the man is still a creatin. He mentally and physically abused her, he cheated with other women, and virtually drank away alot of his income, not to mention his drug use.... ooops I mentioned it. For what it's worth, his adult children from his previous marriage won't have anything to do with him.
Fortunatly after 15 years ( which was 15.5 years to long ) Ruth divorced the mentally unhealthy human being she called husband. The sad thing is, after 10 years, she still can't break ties with the jerk, she still lets him walk all over her. I know one of her neighbors is interested in starting a relationship with her, but it won't happen because she lets her crazy ex husband come around, and she lets him take advantage of her good nature. Her stepsons and I have pleaded with her time and again to not let him come around, but she still lets him. None of us can understand why she continues to put up with him.
In the mean time, I will try to be a friend to Ruth,and pray for her well being.

A Boy Singing to his little sister.....You are My Sunshine, My only Sunshine'
(Be prepared to get watery eyes!)Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on theway, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling.They found out that the new baby was going be a girl, and day after day,night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mom my's tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even mether.
She dressed him in an oversized scrub suit and marched him into ICU.
He looked like a walking laundry basket.The head nurse recognized him as a child and bellowed,
'Get that kid out of here now. No children are allowed.'
The mother rose up strong in Karen,
and the usually mild-mannered lady glared steel-eyed right intothe head nurse's face, her lips a firm line. 'He is not leaving until he sings to his sister' she stated.Then Karen towed Michael to his sister's bedside.He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle to live.After a mom ent, he began to sing.
The pulse rate began to calm down and become steady.'Keep on singing, Michael,' encouraged Karen with tears in her eyes.'You never know, dear, how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away.'
As Michael sang to his sister, the baby's ragged,strained breathing became as smooth as a kitten's purr 'Keep on singing, sweetheart.' 'The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in myarms' Michael's little sister began to relax as rest, healing rest, seemed to sweep over her.'Keep on singing, Michael.' Tears had now conquered the face of the bossy head nurse.

I've also seen people changing their cloths, applying make-up, even reading the newspaper while driving. I'm even sure our friends who drive the Big Rigs, have witnessed even more unbelievable things taking place while looking out the windows of their semi's on the way to their destinations.

I quickly reassured her that the ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter into the hospital.She calmed down and at the end of the conversation happened to mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat in order to kill the ants.I told her that she better bring her daughter into the emergency room right away.
This guy definitely needs a sign.
Yep, here's your sign.
Don't even bother with a sign for this one!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SENIORS.......You gotta love em
Read carefully...I'm sure this has happened to you...
or does this remind you of your mother??
'Sounds good,' my wife said. 'But I don't want the eggs.'
'Then, I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her.
'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' my wife asked incredulously.
'YES!!' stated the waitress.
'I'll take the special then.' my wife said.
'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.
'Raw and in the shell,' my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!!!
We've been around the block more than once!

Sir Isaac Newton invented the cat flap.
An ailurophile is a person who loves cats. The word ailuro is from the ancient Greek word for "cat".
More cats are left handed than right handed. Out of every 100 cats approximately 40 are left-pawed, 20 are right-pawed, and 40 are ambidextrous.
The ridged pattern on a cat's nosepad is as individual as a human fingerprint.
At their fastest, cats can run at 30mph.
A group of kittens is called a kindle.
A group of cats is called a clowder.
The cat is the only domesticated animal NOT mentioned in the bible.
Male cats used to be called "rams" or "boars", however in 1760, an anonymous author wrote a book entitled "The Life & Adventures of a Cat" in which the central character was a male called Tom the Cat. This book was hugely popular & the name tom cat quickly replaced "ram" or "boar"
A cat's pulse is between 130 - 240 beats per minute.
A cat's gestation is between 61 - 70 days.
Cats have 30 vertebrae. Humans have 25.
The normal body temperature is 102 degrees F.
Like humans, kittens have "baby" teeth, which are replaced with their adult teeth from around 6 months of age.
Cats perspire through their paws.
Cats breathe at a rate of 20 - 30 breaths per minute.
The cat's front paws have 5 toes & their back paws have 4. However, some cats have more than this number of toes. When a cat has more than 18 toes, it's called a "polydactyl". Poly comes from the Greek word "polys" which means many or more than one. Dactyl also comes from a Greek word "daktylos" or finger.
Cat urine glows under "black light".
Cats don't kill their prey with their claws, the claws are used to hold onto the prey, the teeth are used to kill the prey.
The claws on the cat's back feet aren't as sharp as the claws on the front feet because they can't retract into the toe, therefore they're continually being worn down by walking.
Cats have existed longer than humans.
Cats walk on their toes.
Cats can jump 5 times their height.
The domestic cat is the only species of cat that can hold it's tail vertically while walking.
Cats have the largest eyes in proportion to their body size of all mammals.
Cats usually have 12 whiskers on each side of it's nose.
