Meat Flavored Gelatin

Well, the good news is that the remote is FOUND!!  Thank God!!  It was in the couch after all….figures. 
The bad news is it was a long day at work filled with a lot of characters.  Yeah. 
We have a customer that orders fairly regularly, but is paranoid-to the point that she has 4 deadbolts on her front door.  She happened to call today about 1:30p.m. when we were all busy with customers and couldn’t get to the phone.  She called immediately after and I answer.  She says, “I don’t know if I had the wrong number, but I called awhile ago and it rang and rang and rang.”  I said, “Yes, if you just called, we were busy with customers and I apologize.”  She replies, “Oh, well I thought maybe something had happened and there was a death in the family and the shop was closed for the day.”  At this point I’m thinking, “I wish.”  Wow.
We did have enough down time today to contemplate what, exactly, Hardee’s or Arby’s Roast beef is made from.  I have a theory that it’s meat-flavored gelatin, but I went on a mission to find out for sure.  I didn’t succeed.  Not today.  But, I’ll keep you posted. 
If you didn’t get the terribly geeky news from me, I HAVE AN ORCHID IN BUD!!!!!  And, now, the pics to prove it:

Don’t look at me like that….just humor me!  Thank you!  Was that so hard?  🙂  I’ll keep you posted on it’s progress.  I know you’re at the edge of your seat. 
Hey, on a final, dis-tastefully funny note: 
You know what’s better than winning a Gold Medal at the Special Olympics?———————–> Walking.

Oh Look, a Kitty!

It’s funny how the loss of an object can drive a person insane.  This morning our TV remote is MIA.  I’m going nuts.  It now takes me 5 mins. to change the channel plus I have to get up…a travesty, I know!  I even went as far as to text our company from last night to see if they hid it on us as a joke.  Nope.  But think for a moment:  Wouldn’t that be the perfect crime?  Going to someone’s house and just swiping their remote.  That’s enough to drive ANYONE nuts I think.  So, I guess if anyone is looking to pull a prank, there’s probably one of the best.  I’m evil.



I love campfire nights.  I’m not always up for them during the day, as it requires cleaning and prep, but come nightfall when company is here and we’re laughing so hard drinks are being shot out of our noses, it’s well worth it.  This week brought our best man from our wedding whom we hadn’t seen in 5 years and another good friend of ours.  I love relationships where even in the extreme case of having 5 years passed, there’s no guilt, no awkwardness and you can pick right up where you left off.  There’s very few relationships like that in life.
One of the many topics pondered last night was the show “Life Goes On” and the character, Corkey.  I got to wondering if while casting for that part, if people got discriminated against because they weren’t disabled. Hmmmm..

I also have a new love affair with grass.  As in lawn…the legal stuff.  I realized that it’s been quite awhile since I lived anywhere where I could walk barefoot through the grass.  We re-did our backyard this year and I’m thoroughly enjoying the soft grass on my bare toes without the worry of “pickers.”  It doesn’t take much to amuse me.
Also, as of last night, I have another new love affair with Newman’s Own Medium Pineapple Salsa.  I’m pretty sure I could roll around in the stuff.  (Sorry for that mental image.)  It’s amazing.  That’s all there is to say about it.
