Ain't it the truth!

Mind the gap, get right into college before life gets in the way!

How is it even possible to tip a cup of hot tea so that it runs down the inside of my sleeve??? 😕

It takes talent. That is the excuse I use when I do something that can't be explained.

I've managed to get liquids out of their container and up my sleeve.

Why do SO's single serving flavored oatmeals have rye and barley in them?

I had to wander the house looking for a strong WiFi signal for my phone. I felt like someone using a hand-held GPS looking for that danged geocache.

Stray Thoughts 2.0

DH opened the fridge door, peered at all the leftovers inside, and told me I need to stop cooking. We have too much to eat, he said.

Same man who complains that there's nothing to eat. Huh.

He keeps you on your toes and always guessing.

I went to see the hand surgeon today. I have been given three options. They can replace the knuckle joinr on three fingers with artificial ones. Or I can get injected with cortisone drugs right into the joints. Or nothing. Just let nature takes its course. I am slowly losing the use of my right hand due to arthritis. I can now only touch the tip of just one finger with my thumb. I am going to talk to my PCP and hear what he advises. His specialty is Geriatrics.

What I learned at the wine tasting tonight.

I learned that I have Estate Bottled, Family Reserve taste buds, and a boxed wine budget. The best part was we each had about 6 ounces of really good quality wine, half of which were beyond our price range, and it didn't cost us anything more than the gas we used to get there and back.
