Man, is it chilly outside. I mowed at Little' Ma's, at Front Drive, and then my own yard, and the wind chill was intense. I'm hoping that the weather does a really fast turnaround, because we are having a SECRET 90th Birthday party for Little Ma next Sunday. Her birthday is in December, but we wanted a large bunch of people to come, and Nina and I were worried about December weather and risking an ice storm hitting at that time.. This way, it is still pretty out, and Little Ma needs something bright to cheer her up, since she has been felling so crummy lately. Remember, it's a secret so don't tell her if you run into her, okay?
I finally took a few pictures of the Willowtree figure collection that I have gone nuts over. Hope you like it.
Since nothing much has been going on, I feel the need to ramble, so be prepared!
I am driving Lon nuts talking about the "white" conspiracy. Has anyone noticed it other than me? I'm talking about the fact that there are so many white cars and trucks on the road. I met with Nina, Zonna, and niece Tina for lunch a while back, and I happened to notice that they all drive white vehicles. (Nina has a white car AND truck). When riding with Lon, I have the annoying habit of pointing out how many white vehicles are on the road. The last time I traveled from Dad's farm to home, I counted how many drivers I met in just that distance. Out of the 10 vehicles, 9 were white (the l0th one was the Monroe Fire Department fire truck that they were probably taking for refueling). I keep thinking that someone is putting on a party, and forgot to invite us, since Lon and I both drive red. Brother Ken has a white truck, and nephew Rob has a white PT Cruiser. Now, how many of you are going to start noticing all the "white" on the roads? Well, my job is done here, now that I have passed this annoying little bit of info onto you all. Every time you notice someone driving white, you are going to think, "Thanks ALOT, Janene!!". he he he However, if you yourself happens to drive something white, I guess you must be part of the conspiracy, and know something that I don't. :)
One more weird thing that I feel the need to discuss. Again with the commercials. I absolutely despise that commercial with that creepy little blonde, blue-eyed boy wearing a Swiss Alps hat and Liederhosen(?) shorts (he looks like an Indigo Child) that chirps on and on about the STROOOODLE breakfast pastry. Another real killer is the one for Famous Footwear. There is a snotty little girl with major attitude, paying for her lunch at a school cafeteria, and then prances over to the girls' table and asks if anyone is sitting there. Then she gives everyone a "mean girl" look and plops her feet (showing off her expensive Famous Footwear shoes) on top of the table. That child will probably end up behind bars or a CEO of some huge corporation.
I'll keep you in the loop about dumb/fantastic commercials, okay?
HAIR REPORT: My real hair is now approximately 1 whole inch long. However, it stays lying flat to my scalp. I even tried to comb it up for a "spiked" look, but it keeps snapping back tight. It is really thick, but still feels like petting a thick-haired dog. Uh, not quite the look I'm going for.
Tomorrow is another Herceptin infusion day. I can't remember if it is the fifth or sixth out of 14 treatments, but all I can do is keep on keepin' on, and it will eventually be over. Look how fast all the other stuff went!
Got to see old friends Kris J. and Jeanie N. on Sunday. Kris's mom passed away and I went to the wake. I know I have talked a lot about deaths this year, but unfortunately there have been a lot of deaths this year. I did not know that Jeanie has lost HER mother in February. Dad left us in April, friend Cindy R.'s dad passed soon after that, friend Ellen died a few weeks ago, then Aunt Alberta, then Kris's mom, and also friend Kurt L. lost his mom last week.
At the wake, I got to see a lovely lady who was our Home Ec teacher in high school, Marci M, who was with her husband, David. Marcie looks amazingly young (I think she was not much older than us students), but dang! she must have great family genes. A very nice lady.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
