I'm still smiling since I met up with tinlizzie for brunch! We had a nice visit.
Thanks, CG. We're all so looking forward to it, tomorrow's the day! Glad you're having so much fun on your Florida vacay, and that you had a nice visit with tinlizzie.

Thank you. Lately, I can talk a good project. Just wish the fingers liked doing all the needle-holding that it takes. I like the design you have to work on. I'm sure it will be beautiful when you are done. And for gosh shakes, take a photo when you finish it. A friend told me long ago, and after many projects gifted to friends, that she would photograph every project she gave away. Wish I had known before mine were gone on to their homes...

The Sing Along version of Frozen was released Tuesday, they are playing it at Costco. Lined up in front of the TV was a group of little girls all singing their little hearts out. It was so cute.

Not smiling. A full-out belly laugh.

Just went to the mailbox to get today's offerings...instead of political propaganda, we're deluged with holiday catalogues of every form and fashion, for every conceivable item one can dream up.

Opened the Bed Bath & Beyond one and, I'm sorry, someone missed the boat on how one particular product "shows."

The ad photo features some youngster smiling and having a great time playing with an "As Seen on TV" item called Squishy Sand.

It's touted as being incredibly soft and moldable, won't make a mess, yada, yada, yada. Hmmm? Sand = no mess? I'd like to see that.

The only thing is...

The photo shows this little girl playing with a medium-brown mixture of, well, um... Let's just say it can be found in many a baby's diaper. It gets better. There's even a nicely coiled pile of the stuff at the left of the child's hands.

And, guess what? For the amazing price of $14.99 you get 1.5 pounds of sand and 3 tools. Sounds like a deal to me.

Where are the marketing folks? I won't be able to stop laughing all day. I don't think Santa is going to leave this toy at our house.

LOL!!

I've been playing in the healthcare system for the last couple of days...found a new diagnosis that had slipped by me and had to have it removed. My cardiologist had prostate cancer listed as a diagnosis for me...

Especially since you've had your prostate removed! Oh, wait...

Nope, just a misplaced diagnosis. Gave her the giggles.
