Ten Things Tuesday- Too Many

Too many days since I have had much to say.
Getting used to this new schedule is harder than I thought it would be.

I can do it.
Just take me a while, that's all.

This week's Ten Things Tuesday is about what there is too many of right now.

1. Idiots
     I see and hear so many things that just make me want to shake my head.  I think that nothing will ever surprise me. Than, boom! There it is!

2. Numbers in the forecast
     It is supposed to hit 102 degrees F. today. That's the temp. not the heat index. That is one too many digits.

3. Typos
     Lately, I am having to continually go back and correct spelling. I keep hitting the letter next to the one I want.

4. Know-it-alls
     Why does everyone think they know everything? And no such thing as a normal conversation and exchange of ideas. If you don't see things the same way, you will be enlightened as to the "truth". Because they "know!".

5. Zucchini
     I cook two, I go out and pick three more. My daughter gave them out to the teachers at school Monday. I love zucchini and never thought I would say too many. But... TOO MANY!!

6. Bank problems
     Honeyman's direct deposit got kicked back twice so he got a written check. He took that in and it was filled out wrong so they wouldn't cash it. Thursday is pay day. Let's hope for good news this time.

7. Cicada killers
     They are huge, nasty wasps that dig in the ground and drag cicadas down their holes for the young to feed on. The stingers are huge and the wasps do not like anyone near their nest. Problem is that they dig all over the garden. Under the broccoli, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini. It makes it difficult to do anything without being chased by one. Thankfully their season is almost over.

8. Green tomatoes
     I have about 50 tomato plants and they have lots of tomatoes on them, but they are staying green. I have been able to make one batch of salsa. That makes 5 pints. But, when they all turn. Holy Crap!

9. First day of school pictures
     Last week was the first day of school for a lot of kids around here. Facebook was just covered with first day of school pictures. I get it if the kid is just starting school. Other than that I just don't.

10. Golf carts
     OK, the nearest town to me has 1800 people. Look at the golf carts. I couldn't fit them all in the picture.
This was at the wedding I went to. Lots of people own golf carts in this town. By the way, they did not have enough chairs and we don't own a golf cart so we had to stand the whole time.

Have a great Tuesday!

I am Just Going to Say It

I've been biting the big blogging ass.
Biting the blogger ass?
No, definitely biting the blogging ass.

I say I will do better and I never do.
I want to write something, but I never do.
I have nothing.


OK, I have this.
What is the world coming to? You just can't take a horse for a walk on the bike/walking trail anymore.

Honeyman just started his new job and after years of doing everything in the evening and staying up til whenever, it is not quite a delight to have to go to bed early so I can get up at 5:30 to make his breakfast.

My oldest niece got married Sunday.
The guys wore kilts.
I tweeted Craig Ferguson about coming.
I even told him could wear his kilt.
Sadly, he did not come.

This Saturday, I have another wedding to go to.
This one is on a golf course.
Not in the club house-such as it is.
It's on the course.
I forget which hole.

To save them renting chairs, they wanted owners of golf carts to just use those.
And the bride was buying 100 cupcakes for the reception.
They invited 500 people.
I am sure that will be plenty.

We Have a Winner

Dave Mustaine from Megadeath shared this on Facebook.
For those of you that haven't heard, I thought I'd share.
