I have tried to instill in them the fact that they should leave such creatures be. Moccasins can be mighty aggressive this time of year.

a number of years ago i was canoeing and fishing in a lake/river system in south jersey on a very hot day. i decided to pull my canoe up to a small island (big rock, really) in the middle of the lake, and hop out to take a dip in the water to cool off. as i swam around a little, i saw what i thought was a branch floating towards me in the flow of the slow current. as it got closer, it changed direction a bit and headed towards me. roughly at the same time, we raised our heads out of the water to get a better look at each other. it was a water moccasin! we both screamed like girls and immediately swam in opposite directions, me headed back to the safety of my canoe and the snake darting for the opposite bank. thank god it wasn't in an aggressive mood since i was alone and a good mile or so from where my car was parked, and the nearest hospital was at least a half hour from there.

Did you get a chance to watch it last night? I just got through and it was wonderful. I just LOVE our DVR!

I especially love my DVR during baseball season. I record all the series we like automatically so we don't miss any shows. So we watch the baseball game live and fill in with the recorded shows for those nights when there is no game or no new shows. Not to mention that we can watch two one-hour shows in an hour and a half.

We don't have a DVR so we catch our regular shows via internet, either on Hulu or the network's website. But last night I wanted to watch "Castle" as it ran so I flopped on my recliner, put our little notebook "Squirt" on my tummy, and watched the play-by-play on Gameday interspersed with the storyline. I love technology! Bonus ~ my team won.

I have known a few men I would have liked to push over the edge! But they have laws about homicide.

Every Monday the old ladies have Bingo in the community room. They start at 6 p.m. and at 7:45 you hear loud talking in the hallways and then all the doors slamming. They make sure they are all in their comfy seats for DWTS. My daughter is another one. Don't call when you know that show is on. She will not answer the phone.

Wow! So sad. I really like most of the men I have came into contact with.

Guess it goes both ways.

My take...no marriage = no divorce or homicide charges, no nagging, I do what I like, when I like and how I like.

I only have too justify my actions to my employer and when I get home...sweet serenity!

I love the freedom of being single.

Carol Burnett once said something like, "I would get married again, but only if we had separate houses."

CWS has the right idea, she has separate houses too.

Had to watch "Hell's Kitchen" tonight. Need to figure out the recording thingy on our DTV, so I could watch The Voice too.
