How the Fight Starts

This Is How the Fight Starts. . . 


My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.

My wife asked, 'Do you know her?'

'Yes,' I sighed, 'she's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.'

'My God!' says my wife, 'Who would have thought a person could go on celebrating that long?'

And then the fight started…


Hahahaaa...I wasn't expecting THAT!

The AMAZING Jace, Creator & Master Designer

Zazzle Creations by Grandson, Jace!

Grandson Jace watched as I created designs and applied them to products on Zazzle. He wanted to do it too.

I had him open his MS Paint program, and he whipped out this design in less than 10 minutes...))): siiigghh.

It usually takes me a loooong time to complete a design.

KIDS, Go figure!!!

Thank GOD, It's FRIDAY!

Thank GOD, it's FRIDAY! Another week just flew by, had me busy as a little bee with a never-ending “to-do” lists. There were the usual things that just HAD to be done, along with a few incidentals that popped-up in the middle of it all. I got the important stuff done though. Thank goodness.

Now the week is gone already. Well, thank God, it's FRIDAY and I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend…sorta. Mama’s here, she came yesterday. Time to do some serious bringing, fetching, and carrying!

Still, I look forward to a whole lot of quiet time doing as much nothing as possible whenever I can today and the entire weekend. Feeding and medicating Mama is the only “must-do” thing to do, so far. I hope it stays that way all weekend.

Oh! Oh! Oh! I almost forgot the best part. The absolute BEST part of the week was getting to spend more time with Grandson. School is out for the summer. Yaaa!

We spent a lot of time chatting, chill-laxing, and snacking/eating. Boy that kid can eat! He must be going through a “growth-spurt” or something. He left yesterday evening to spend a few days with is other grandmother.   

Okay, okay enough random ranting already. Happy Friday Everyone!

What about you? How was your week? What fun things do you have planned for the weekend? Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Anybody heard any funny jokes lately? I need a good laugh!   

May tomorrow bring happiness beyond belief, 
joy beyond comparison, 
and peace to sooth your soul.

Wishing you a blessed and serene weekend!

A Guide: How to be Annoying

A Guide: How to be Annoying

If you ever find yourself at a loss for something fun to do, these "things-to-do" are a sure thing. They will amuse, tickle, or annoy you.

Lighten up, life is serious enough!

-       Buy large quantities of mint dental floss just to lick the flavor off.

-      Order a side of pork rinds with your filet mignon.

-      Sing the Batman theme incessantly.

-      Repeat everything someone says, as a question.

-      Wander around the restaurant, asking other diners for their parsley.

-      Leave tips in foreign currency.

-      Forget the punchline to a long joke, but assure the listener it was a "real hoot."

-      Follow a few paces behind someone, spraying everything they touch with a can of Lysol.

-      Deliberately hum songs that will remain lodged in co-workers' brains, such as "Feliz Navidad." 

-      Never make eye contact. 

-  Signal that a conversation is over by clamping your hands over your ears.

What do you say? Do these amuse, tickle, or annoy you? Let us know in the comments. OR, tell us something funny. We'd love to hear it so we can laugh.

True Confessions

Confessions of a LateBloomer

How well do we know anybody? We don’t. We only know what we see when we are with them. We also see how another person portrays himself or herself to the world. 

We don't know what they're hiding behind the mask they present to the world. People lie all the time. It is easy to get mislead online, and we would be non-the-wiser. That’s a sad fact, but it’s true.

So, who am I? What do I like and what do I do? I love reading, writing, sewing, crafts, and jewelry making. 

I like researching online. I’m addicted to plain old research. I also spend a lot of time researching ways to make money online. I haven’t made much headway along those lines so far. I’m still searching though.

I also started researching my daddy’s family history online in 2008, but I’ve had to put that aside for a while. Life happened - - again and again and again.

Well, enough about me for now. I could go on and on forever. Did I say I love writing? I do love it. This is just a little of the life of the ~LateBloomer~, my online name…for a few hot minutes. 

Who are you? What do you like? What do you do? Do you have a hobby?

A Great Point & Shoot Camera For Beginners

Canon PowerShot SD780IS - Camera

This Canon PowerShot SD780IS Camera is an awesome point & shoot camera for beginners.

Mere words cannot begin to describe the awesomeness of this little camera. That said I will TRY to explain some of the reasons I find this Canon PowerShot SD780IS absolutely amazing. #1: It is teeny-tiny-SMALL!

It's teeny-tiny enough fo fit in the  palm of your hand. It’s tiny enough to fit in a shirt or pants pocket. It’s small enough to fit into a purse easily. It does not take up any space, no matter where you put it.

Don’t be fooled by the size of this small pocket-size camera though. It has some un-imaginable features. The BEST feature is that it is a great point-&-shoot camera for beginners like me. Simply point it at your subject, find your subject on the screen, and press the button. That’s it! It is just that easy to use.

Another awesome feature of this camera is that it is also great for shooting pictures on the move. I have captured hundreds of pictures while riding in the car, with the window rolled up. Many were blurred, at first. Then, I developed an amateur system for getting clear focused shots - -  on the move. How?

I would look ahead as we rode along, find my target, and focus on it. As the car moved along, I kept my camera focused on the item I wanted to shoot. When the car reached my desired object, I just pressed the button. The pictures came out very clear, not blurred at all. You can’t beat that for “point-&-shoot” for amateur beginners!

My photo. Taken from a moving car, passenger side. 

This Canon PowerShot SD780IS has many other great features and professional quality capabilities. But this review concentrates only on its ease of use for beginners.

If you like to take pictures and you are not a professional photographer, this is the camera for you. If you want a camera you can point at something and shoot a picture, this camera is for you.

I highly recommend this Canon PowerShot SD780IS.  It's perfect for beginners.
