Countdown to Halloween – Day 1

Standard

Countdown to Halloween – Day 1

***

If you haven’t guessed by now, I love Halloween! I love the autumn days, with the fall colors of orange, yellow, and rust, and the cooler temperatures. All that puts me in a good mood.

In the past few years I’ve taken part in some October blog challenges, such as October Poetry Writing Month ‘Octpowrimo”, and the ’31 Days of Halloween’, but wasn’t wanting to formally sign up to do one, and the other isn’t being held this year.

Looking back over my past posts, I’ve got a lot of fun poems about Halloween, and for real, hardly anyone came by to read them, as I didn’t have many readers back then.  So, I’m going to re- post them now. They will be sort of new to me again, too, as I haven’t gone back to look at them in a very long time. Also, I’ll show off my painted rocks again (I know some of you saw these last year).

Anyway, hope you’ll enjoy my informal countdown to Halloween! 🙂

Poem # 1

“Where Do They Go?”

~

Bats and cats,

Silk top hats…

Where do the goblins go?

Around and about,

Inside and out…

They’re everywhere, don’t you know.

Beep! Beep! – Song Lyric Sunday – Car/Cars

Standard

Beep! Beep! – Song Lyric Sunday – Car/Cars IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 9/2/18

***

Helen has given us the prompt word, Car/Cars for SLS! Thanks, Helen!

There are so many songs about cars, it was hard to choose one. I remember this one from way back when, and since it is funny, I remembered it. I’d thought about it for the other prompt not long ago, of drive/driving, but went with a different one. so…now is the time for this one!

The song starts of really slow, then gets faster and faster as the cars in the story go faster. There’s a funny twist at the end, too!

“Beep Beep – The Little Nash Rambler”, by the Playmates, was a single from their album, “At Play with the Playmates”. It was released in 1958, on the Roulette label. It was written by Carl Cichetti and Donald Claps.

***

[Very Slow]
While riding in my Cadillac
What to my surprise
A little Nash Rambler was following me –
About one third my size
The guy must’ve wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn. Beep! Beep!
I’ll show him that a Cadillac
Is not a car to scorn
Beep beep. Beep! Beep! Beep beep. Beep! Beep!
His horn went beep beep beep. Beep! Beep!
[Slow]
I pushed my foot down to the floor
To give the guy the shake
But the little Nash Rambler stayed right behind;
He still had on his brake
He must have thought his car had more guts
As he kept on tooting his horn. Beep! Beep!
I’ll show him that a Cadillac
Is not a car to scorn
Beep beep. Beep! Beep! Beep beep. Beep! Beep!
His horn went beep beep beep. Beep! Beep!
[Normal]
My car went into passing gear
And we took off with gust
Soon we were doing ninety –
Must’ve left him in the dust
When I peeked in the mirror of my car
I couldn’t believe my eyes:
The little Nash Rambler was right behind –
I think that guy could fly
Beep beep. Beep! Beep! Beep beep. Beep! Beep!
His horn went beep beep beep
[Faster]
Now we’re doing a hundred and ten –
This certainly was a race
For a Rambler to pass a Caddy
Would be a big disgrace
The guy must’ve wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn
I’ll show him that a Cadillac
Is not a car to scorn
Beep beep. Beep! Beep! Beep beep. Beep! Beep!
His horn went beep beep beep
[Fastest]
Now we’re doing a hundred and twenty –
As fast as I could go
The Rambler pulled along side of me
As if we were going slow
The fellow rolled down his window
And yelled for me to hear
“Hey, Buddy, how can I get this car
Out of second gear!”

Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!

Ice – One Liner Wednesday

Ice – One Liner Wednesday

One-Liner Wednesday – Thought of the day

***

Here’s a sign at our grocery store, reminding everyone not to forget ice.

We’ve done this a lot…buying a bag of ice at the check-out counter, then walking out without getting it. Then, we have to go back to the store to get our ice we paid for.

The Anti-Bucket List

Standard

The Anti-Bucket List Bucket Cleaning Wash Capacity Pen Plastic

***

So, I found this fun list to do over at Suze’s place, and she found it from Georgie, at her place, and now I’m taking on the challenge (of course – I can’t resist a fun challenge).

You can find Suze blogging at:  https://suziland.site/2018/05/26/its-all-georgies-fault/

You can find Georgie blogging at:  https://georgiemoon2016.wordpress.com/2018/05/26/my-anti-bucket-list-3/

***

Now this is an Anti-Bucket List, where we list things we’d Never Do! It was harder than I thought it would be to come up with some of these.

  1. I would never get in a lake. Why? Because there are fish in a lake, and my worst phobia is fish!
  2. I would never water ski or snow ski. First, water skiing takes place on a lake (see #1), and snow skiing is on snow. I don’t like winter or snow.
  3. I would never climb a mountain. I love looking at mountains, but climbing one – nope.
  4. I would never again stand in a fire-ant bed. I unwittingly did that before, and talk about the fiery pain of the stings! Never again.
  5. I will never again lay out in the sun to get a sun tan. I used to, but never got a tan, just sun-burn.
  6. I would never eat raw fish. Yuck! For one thing, it’s fish, and raw fish creeps me out just as much as real live fish.
  7. I would never bungee jump, parachute from a plane, or try my hand at window washing skyscrapers.
  8. I would never wear fake fingernails. I like mine very short, and fake ones, well…they look like ugly fake claws.
  9. I would never (knowingly) eat bugs.
  10. I would never stick my arm in a box full of mosquitoes to demonstrate how effective a mosquito repellent is.
  11. I would never want to be a Cobra snake charmer.

That’s all I could think of at the moment. What would be on your Anti-Bucket list? 🙂

Moony – One Liner Wednesday

Standard

One Liner Wednesday

One-Liner Wednesday – It’s a Con-undrum

***

Weather forecast for tonight: dark. - George Carlin

***

I like this because it’s so obvious it’s funny.

George Carlin always was a favorite of mine, because he had a unique way of seeing things and making a statement about it.

Of course I like anything to do with the weather, too. It reminds me of this one local weather guy, who was always saying something funny. You know how in the weather forecasts they say it will be partly sunny, or partly cloudy…well, this guy had a one liner that struck me funny, too. He said about the night time:

“It will be partly moony tonight.” 🙂

We have a brand new One Liner Badge! Thanks to Cheryl, at “Dreaming Reality” for this cute little monkey! Cheryl can be found blogging at:

Random Post # 18 – 3 Weird Things

Standard

Random Post # 18 – 3 Weird Things   

***

Sometimes I just sit and think about things that are weird to me. Do you do that?

Here’s some random thoughts of mine…

  1. Finger Clicks – I use one of the mouse things with my desktop computer. When I press/click one part of the mouse it takes me to whatever I want to look at on line. So I was wondering just how many ‘finger clicks’ I’ve ever done in my computering history. It must be in the billions! And, my pointer finger that I use for this is still in good working order after all that ‘exercise’. 🙂
  2. Do you ever wonder about the cleaning product called SOS pads? Those steel wool pads that have some kind of soap embedded in them, are great for scrubbing stubborn, stuck on food off dishes and pans, or many other uses. The thing is, I’ve always thought the soap stuff was poison! I don’t know why. Maybe it is, well of course if you try to eat it, it is, but just to clean with and then rinse it off your dishes and hands, I figured it was still poison. I have to wash whatever it is over again with regular dish soap, just to get the poison soap off. 🙂
  3. Phone Tones – I think I’ve mentioned this before, about the tone/signals we get on our cell phones, when we get a notification of something. Especially in blogging, when I get a notice of a followed blogger’s new post, I get a certain tone on my phone to let me know. This can be pretty immediately, even if the signal is coming from another country. So…when I post something new, do you get a tone/signal on Your phone? It’s weird that you and I can make other peoples phones make a sound – just like that! 🙂

Anyway, just some weird things I think about. I have more, which I’ll do another time.

What are some weird things you think about? 🙂

I Can’t Think of a Title For This One

Standard

photo found on Pixabay

I did this post 4 years ago, and pretty much no one saw it, so I thought I’d dust it off, and y’all can see what I was doing back then. One update to it is at the time I didn’t have a phone that you could enter notes on an app, but I have one now (and I still don’t remember to use it). I also didn’t have any tags, or categories, or a good-bye sign off, either. haha!

Have a few laughs with this one. 🙂

I CAN’T THINK OF A TITLE FOR THIS ONE

Standard

Yeah, up above where I’m supposed to put a title to this piece, it says ‘title optional’…okay…but I don’t like to leave it blank. I’ve spent way too much time trying to think of something catchy, so I’ll just say the truth. I can’t think of one, because this is just a bit of randomness that happens here…one little episode, that reveals what my ADHD brain goes through on a daily basis.

This one starts out with cats, and evolves into cleaning out my purse. So, see…try to think up a title for that. Anyway, here goes…

I’m going around the house, picking up all the little cat toys. They are all over the floor, in several rooms, because, well, I throw them at the cats. Not actually at them…well, sometimes I do, but for the cats to chase. Except mostly, they don’t chase them. They just watch me throwing toys in the air. Oh, they may take a half-hearted swipe at one, if it lands right by their feet. I think they enjoy watching the ‘crazy lady’ that plays with cat toys.

Okay, so I’m picking them up (the toys…not the cats) using the long wand thing with pinchers on the end – the gopher, picker-upper tool – and putting them in the cat’s toy basket, which is on a little table. My purse is sitting by the basket, and I think, hey, I should clean out my purse.

So, I start taking things out. It’s like one of those clown cars, where more and more clowns come out of the little car. Well, more and more things come out of my purse. It isn’t really a big purse…just medium sized, I’d say. How can so much junk accumulate in there? Well, because I’m disorganized, for one thing.

Disorganized, distracted, and I tend to stuff lots of things in there. I tell myself it is for those ‘just in case’ type of days, but really, there’s hardly ever an ‘in case’ moment that actually happens. Other times, I’m in too big a hurry to put something away, so in the purse it goes. Then it is forgotten, until the next time I happen to clean it out.

And now, I’m standing there pulling out random items, until I have a large pile, there on the table. At that point, I go get a plastic bag to put trash in, and most of it is just trash I’ve been hauling around. It’s no wonder my purse is so heavy. By now, I’ve gotten tired/bored with the whole thing, so I just dump all of the items into the plastic bag. I say I’ll go through it later. Now, it is two days later and it is still there where I left it.

My projects have little chance in being finished…ADHD won’t let me focus long enough. Halfway through, I’m getting antsy, have to move on to something else. Doesn’t matter…it’s already forgotten, and I’m on the move again. Anyway, since I’m writing about this purse episode, let’s get back to the formerly forgotten plastic bag.

Want to see what’s in there? Are you curious/brave enough to stick around, while I reveal what was in my purse? If not, look away now…it’s ok. Here goes…

  • microfiber cloth
  • a pair of socks
  • a pair of underwear
  • 2 – 39 gallon trash bags
  • pkg. of hand wet wipes
  • 3 extra pks. of wet wipes
  • stretchy hair band, purple w/skulls
  • 3 wrist bands from the hospital (from
  • surgery last week) I.D., Fall Risk, and
  • Allergy
  • 14 grocery receipts
  • 5 grocery lists
  • 1 Dr. appt. card
  • 7 peppermints
  • 3 pennies, 1 nickel, 2 quarters (found)
  • 3 unused gift cards,
  • billfold, keys, sunglasses, pill container
  • 3 e-cigs, reg. camera & case, & disposable camera

Pretty crazy, huh? And the worst, sad, horrifying thing about it, is what is ‘not’ in there. There is no paper or notebook to write on. The one most important item a writer should always have with them, is something to write ideas on, quickly, before the thoughts evaporate. How can this be? Oh, yeah, I’m forgetful…forgot to put one in there the last time I changed purses. That’s why I sometimes write on napkins, or receipts, and have to check them before I throw them away, just in case I wrote on them. (no, I don’t have one of those phones that you can type a list on an app…is that a real thing?)

So, now that we’ve all had a good laugh, care to tell me what you carry around…just in case? 🙂

P.S. I started writing this earlier this morning,..got halfway through… left it to go to lunch, and appt. and grocery store. Hey, at least I finished it! Yay
