HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Standard

glitter-graphics.com

 Kids here will be happy to know that the rain should
let up enough to do their trick or treating,not sure about
the wind though. That is, IF
they are actually doing that sort of thing still. More and more
kids are using the school or church activities instead
of going door to door here . I don’t blame
them. Many places are staggering their schedules so
that kids can attend a party a day from mid-week
on. That means more fun and more treats. I remember
when we just got 3 hours and that was it. Maybe we had
a party at school and maybe not. Things sure have
changed over the years. Wink

"GO TO THE LIGHT CAROL ANN"

Zelda Rubenstein (gooogle images)

The first time I saw Poltergeist I cringed everytime that
small woman with the round face called out to the young
girl. I sure loved it when she declared "THIS HOUSE IS CLEAN!"
too. What a relief! So many scary movies at this time of
year..I guess it depends on what era you grew up in. There
is CHUCKY! and FREDDIE KRUGER..shudder.. well many many more.
 
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SCARY MOVIE YOU WATCH AT
HALLOWEEN?
 
Whatever it is..hope you will have fun watching it this weekend.

FRIDAY NOTES..

Standard
It was a windy day and most all the leaves are gone
now from my tree. I spent a lot of time outside
as the weather was warm enough to give us a
break. The rain is coming soon, had to get as much done
as possible.

I made you all a "TREAT", now don’t push or
shove there is plenty to go around. LOL Open-mouthed
I am all ready in case I get some trick or treat visitors.. Sometimes
I make cookies, or popcorn balls.  I know you are supposed to give out
wrapped candy, but I am not turning on my light this year.. these
cakes are mostly for friends and mostly grownups!
Maybe it is all the shows I have been watching on the food channel.
The cakes on there just boggle the mine.. some as high as 4 feet high.
I love to see how they create things all the neat techiniques. I have been
watching THE CAKE BOSS on TLC. That family runs the whole bakery and boy
they are really something. I love the attention to detail and creative
side they have to making their cakes. Just call me a jealous baker hereWink
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
 
WHAT was your most favorite treat to get for
Halloween when trick
or treating?       

I know mine was gooey popcorn balls or great big candy bars I preferred
Butterfingers or Baby Ruths. Our neighbor always made popcorn
balls. It was the only time of year we got them and we all
loved them. Here is a little test I found on line
it is really eye-opening Wink
TEST your candy knowledge HERE
I only got half right.. surprising! Surprised
Well  not much more from here..
 
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

VANDALS OR PRANKSTERS??

Standard
 
 
The squirrel tells you it is nice here, the tree picture tells you that the sun was
shining and the leaves are still on our tree. We lost some over night in the rain but
there is still many to go yet. I just keep raking and mowing to get rid of them.Disappointed
Gas is steady at 2.63 with some cities close by 2.75. Milk went down to
1.75 a gallon. Shocking really. I mean I never thought it would go that low.
The news tonight stated that more doctor’s offices will now be geting the
H1N1 vaccine where they had not gotten any in the past weeks. Priority is
still being given to the pregnant women and the children.
Schools are down to about 12 closed when last week we had about 50..
something  we are doing is working.
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Had a weird thing happen again at the cemetery. Yes I said cemetery!
Sis went out to check on things as Nov. 1st they ask people to take all the summer
things away. So when she gets there she sees that someone has really MOVED
the stuff on our plot. WHAT THE???  She calls me and I go out there and sure
enough someone has moved urns and the angel that mom put out there. This is
no small angel it is large. The urn is large too, very heavy,
 This was not the caretakers or the
maintenance people. This happened once before and gets mom
really upset. Things disappeared and we had to replace them.
WIERD..Thinking I have no idea who is doing this but it just isn’t right. We
called the police before and they told us that vandals like to
destroy things sometimes but just moving them is not against any
rules really. We may decide to take the angel off this winter and bring
her back to the garage for safe keeping. Sis and I expect to see it gone
someday just "because". I don’t think this has anything to do with
Halloween at all..but could be a prank. WE don’t think it is funny.Sad
WHY OH WHY do people have to have such disregard for other’s
belongings? It just stinks!!
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Hope you all are ready for Halloween. Here it will be cold and rainy..
just what you want for that special day.

COLD OR FLU WHICH IS IT???

Standard
A friend of mine sent me this chart today and it really is very
helpful to help you tell whether what you have is the flu
or just a cold. The one thing that surprised me the most
was the fact that you could come down with the flu pretty
bad in as little as 3 hours. I had never heard this before.
It strikes you suddenly. Surprised
FEEL FREE TO PASS THIS ON…AND STAY WELL OUT THERE!!Smile
GET WELL SOON JOE!!
THANKS ANITA!!

MONDAY HAPPENINGS..

Standard
Monday turned out to be a nicer day than I thought. The sun was shining
here on and off and so the temps were pretty warm. I was able to get outside
and mow the yard (leaves) up and work some in the garage.
I called the doctor about some test results and they were not back
yet so they would have to call me back on Tuesday with what the
doctor wanted to do next.
 
I called the pharmacy and found that the office had NOT FOLLOWED
through so there were no updated prescriptions there. WHAT??Surprised
I could not believe it! Sooo called the office again (long distance)
and was put on HOLD before I could even speak. Talk about ticked! Sad
I wanted to hang up but decided no, I would wait and then tell them
I did not like their policy of answering the phone and putting me on
hold immediately. Smile When she came back almost 5 minutes later..
I politely told her I was calling from a distance and did not appreciate
being put on hold so quick if it was not an emergency. She apologized
and said it would not happen again.  Do I believe that? NOPE! Eye-rolling
I know they get busy and I know they have patients there waiting..
I know all that.. but they sure do need some help with their phone
dialogue. ANYWAY.. I bet I have trouble with the pharmacy again
it just seems like that is the way this week will go for me. One thing
after another. SIs spent 30 minutes in the bank just trying to get
a simple question answered and no one there who could help her
out.  Sheesh!. Disappointed
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Well that was my Monday .. hope all of yours was better…
Getting ready for a cold rainy Halloween here.. hope the weather
is better where you are.
