Just Zip It

Just Zip It

  Just zip the bag closed. Hmm, easier said than done, right? Whether you have MS fumble-fingers or the dexterity of a Vegas blackjack dealer, the recloseable Ziploc bag has frustrated many. In fact, Borge Madsen, the Danish inventor who first dabbled with plastic zippers back in 1951, is STILL trying to close one of …

Grocery Goofs

Grocery Goofs

    It has the title “Grocery Goofs” because this post is nothing more than me rolling through a grocery store poking fun at items on the shelf. And that is WAY shorter than calling it “Me Rolling Through a Grocery Store Poking Fun at Items on The Shelf.” Grab a cart and let’s go …

Well-Worn

  I added this shirt to our charity pile today. But for an embarrassing reason. Oh it is in good shape.  No rips.  No holes. It fits well.  Not too big.  Not too small. And it looks good whether dressed up or casual. I like it. So why give the shirt to charity if everything …

Your Free Gift

Downright Lazy

Downright Lazy

  Eh, don’t get me started. All these current trends and new fangled technologies. I’m a 55 year-old fuddy-duddy who doesn’t know a Kardashian from a Gregorian. I remember the days when telemarketers were living, breathing humans–NOT robots.  And with all this online shopping, I know my UPS driver better than the store clerk. Convenience …

Kids Will Be Kids

Kids Will Be Kids

    A story was told of kids being kids. This one about when differences arose on the playground. “It’s MY turn.  You already had one.” “Na uh, you’re cheating!” “Am not!”   Most disputes are  settled quickly and play resumes because there is only so much time till recess ends. On this day however …
