I totally understand that sometimes folks want to surf the web anonymously and sometimes certain sites including my own may ask you to register before providing "more information"
if you give a stupid name with your registration do NOT put your real phone number
I feel obligated to contact you with a personal call
and asking for......
Cmy Cucumber just makes us both feel silly.

The Stepping Stones
A 100 Word Story submitted to the Weeky Challenge
Looking around at her neighbor’s well manicured lawns,
Paula decided she wanted to spruce things up a little bit.
She bought some plants at the local hardware store and spent the entire afternoon digging holes and planting an attractive assortment of greenery.
Then, she carefully chose just the right stepping stones and
placed them in the dirt forming a lively little garden path.
Beautiful! Just like in a magazine” she smiled proudly.
The next morning (running late as usual)
Paula caught her heel, then hit her head on those very stumbling blocks that she had so carefully created for herself.
The IFOC weekly challenge #24 will be posted on Saturday
so give a listen and vote for your favorites.
If you would like to write your own story that is exactly 100 words,
the rules are there too

I think it is for a Disney cell phone.
Anyway, the parents check on the kid later in the day, by logging in to see where his phone is located.
"He is still at the big tree" Dad smiles
Well, my first thought was the PHONE is at the big tree and the little brat is off doing something he should NOT be doing and will pick up the phone later assuming Mom and Dad are too stupid to figure it all out.
At least that is how it would have worked at my house.
Sorry, Josh....but you know that is the truth....haha.

No doubt, he will also be busy promoting his book.
He will be missed.
Today, I am searching for lots for a client who is building a country home.
One listing states there are no deed restrictions and the land is partially cleared.
Then it says:
No well or septic. Enjoy!!!!

Now I try not to take that personally, but....Well that is a whole 'nother post.
Wow! I think, she has it together now and we are going to buy something at long last.
So I give her a quick call, Does she want me to set an appointment for this evening?
Oh, no she cannot go today.
Oh, no she does not have time tomorrow but she will get back to me.
So the point of asking for an appointment ASAP was what?
I guess she doesn't have it together yet after all....Ha.
|You Are Bud Light|
You're not fussy when it comes to beer. If someone hands it to you, you'll drink it.
In fact, you don't understand beer snobbery at all. It all tastes the same once you're drunk!
You're an enthusiastic drinker, and you can often be found at your neighborhood bar.
You're pretty good at holding your liquor too - you've had lots of experience.

I can move the limb around without him acting like it hurts and there is no swelling at all.
I suspect he jumped off our spiral staircase from too high chasing Rhett.
He wants to do everything the big cats do and I have seen him jump from halfway a couple of times this week.
I hope he has not really hurt his silly little self.
Of course if he needs medical treatment he will get it,
but man I really can not afford another a vet bill right now.
On a funny note, did you know if you put RicoLoco in spellcheck the suggested spelling is "Reckless". Sounds about right.
Update: He seems fine now, but I doubt he learned his lesson
I worked 8 years for Hancock Fabrics and have quite a personal stash of fabrics and notions to show for it.
In fact, I have come across a huge box of unfinished projects from years past.
Of course I will be working only a few feet from the computer.
This chair has wheels.
You know....so I can check my email and stuff..ha.
I forgot to submit my story this week for the 100 word challenge.
But here it is just the same
The Untold Legend of Bloody Hook
A 100 word story
On a road to nowhere in particular,
A shiny metal object lay gleaming in the moonlight.
The scene was gruesome, young lovers cut down.
Several of the cars on Lover’s Lane were still running,
The occupants too involved with each other
to see what was coming.
He had lusted for the fame and attention his crime would bring.
He could not believe his own stupidity.
He had killed them all, and left no one to tell the story!
Damn it! He cried and banged his stump against a tree.
No one left to tell...
The legend of The Bloody Hook.

Anyone need a beach get away?
Email or leave a comment for more information
I also lost one as of tomorrow.
Sadly I just could not find a buyer for this little house and my client has chosen not to extend our contract.
In fact, when I asked her when is a good time to pick up the lockbox and return the key, she said whenever just leave the key under the mat and take your sign and stuff...ugh.
Failure really sucks
I'm not good at writing sentimental things, even if I am touched by reading them.
I am doing what Americans all over this great country are doing.
I'm just working.
I'm working because that's what Americans do best.
God Bless those affected by the murders of 9/11.
Regular people like all of us, who were just working too.

The subject this week is "Time Travel"
It was most unlikely that you would ever find Paula contemplating the theory of relativity.
She had met a handsome physics professor who invited her to take a ride in his newly constructed time machine.
He explained the workings of his great invention, and not being a deep thinker she eagerly accepted the invitation.
Would she prefer to travel forward or backwards? He asked with an evil grin?
Forward please she replied, and stepped into a looming metal box with double sliding doors.
After a few moments she realized her mistake and following a well placed slap, exited the elevator
All the entries are posted HERE, so go listen up and vote for your favorite stories =================
If you want to write your OWN 100 story,
next weeks topic is "A Bloody Hook"
Should be fun!

I quickly constructed a "just checking in" type email, went down my contact list, and sent it out copied and pasted each time to about 25 contacts that I have not heard from in a while.
When I got to the very last one I realized.
I had mis-spelled my own name...ugh.
