I swear I unpack and repack my grocery bags every time I leave the store. WHY do they have to put my tomatoes on the bottom???
Because the tomatoes go with the bread down there for your sandwiches.

My Stray Thought for the Day

Now that the snow is gone and I can get outside with my scooter, time for me (the next time I go shopping) to buy and bring my monthly donation to our local food bank at the church up the street. A perfect excuse to get me out in the fresh air. Then when the weather hit the high 70's, time for me to go over to the beach and watch the airplanes take off while I sit and do my sewing.

All day I have been in pain. I either have a bad kidney infection or am constipated. I am going with the constipation. When I bang on my kidneys, no pain comes forth. But I can't figure out why I would be constipated. I didn't eat much yesterday. Just a half sandwich. Oh well. I see what happens tomorrow.

I did have a wireless keyboard. And I loved it. But I used it to death. All of a sudden it stopped working for me. Most of the numbers stopped. Having been trained to use the numbers at the top of the keyboard, most of them went out first. It was really hard for me to remember to use the numeric pad to the right.

So Spike brought me a wired keyboard with the notation of "Lets see how fast you can destroy this one." I am really hard on keyboards. This is about the eighth or ninth one I have destroyed in the past ten or more years.

Now I am having a devil of a time trying to learn this new board. It is much flatter than any I have ever had before. It sits below the wrist rest and I have to keep the board pushed back. And a lot of the "extra" keys I had on the other one are not on this one. Like the sound keys. If I am listening to music, sometime a song is louder than the previous. I have a headset, but hate to use it. And it has keys that I don't even know what they do.

Oh well, tomorrow I will be in a better mood. (I hope)

Stray Thoughts 2.0

So looking forward to "Jurassic World"!! Not this weekend when it opens though. We'll wait a bit. I do plan to spring for the Imax thing though.

Why don't they make mouse-flavored cat food?

What a nice weekend I have had. I manage to find several B&W movies from the forties and fifties. I like the black and white one from then. The story lines hold my interest. I am definitely not a fan of Jerry Lewis and his antics. I switched that station real quick. Now it is getting late and I need to start to get ready for tomorrow morning. Have to get my new EBT card.

Halftime at The Q. Cavs down by two. Wondering how much longer will my basketball season last. Will it be just 24 more minutes? Or will we have one more game, Game Seven, to be played on Friday in Oakland?

All I know is that last year the Cavs final game of the season was on April 16th. Today is June 16th. For someone who thought the Cavs wouldn't even make the playoffs this year, these past two months have been a total bonus blast!

They make meat like products for vegetarians like veggie dogs, and veggie bacon, burgers etc...why don't they make products for people who don't like vegetables? Carrots made from pork, or chicken formed in the shape of cauliflower? I think it would sell...no?
