My friend Jill just called me from Wisconsin where she’s visiting her family and attending her 30th class reunion.
Get this. They are having a barbeque – outside – right here in the middle of summer!
I commented that I couldn’t imagine having my class reunion outside (it’s next weekend in West Point). We could have a barbeque without even using a grill.
I’ve ranted before about Jiggly Wiggly. Today was the final straw. They probably won’t even let me come back. Good.
They printed in 48 point type in the local newspaper that Saturday (today) was a tax free day. I thought, “How cool is that”? Trying to pay us back for all the gouging they do during the rest of the year.
I’m not really crazy about figs, but my friend has a huge fig tree in his back yard and he invited Marie and Judy and me to come over and do some pickin’ after mass tomorrow.
Since I’m hot for anything free, I guess we will do some pickin’ even though we will melt in the heat which is predicted to be 100 plus – REAL temp. Besides one fig has only 37 calories and they are so sweet! But they also have 10 carbs per fig and I’m watching carbs these days. I might as well have a bag of M & Ms.
One of my favorite commercials on television is the one featuring Abe Lincoln. I have no idea what product they’re hawking, but Mary Todd is asking honest Abe if her dress makes her look fat.
Abe, is caught between a rock and a hard place. In the end he admits it might, and Mary stalks off in a huff.
Sir Walter Scott wrote about the tangled webs we weave when we begin to deceive. Just look at the endless parade of politicians and famous sports figures who have gotten tangled up in their lies. But research shows that lies affect more than our reputation — they can even affect our health and longevity.
