Good morning. The sun is shining and temps are at 47F degrees and headed for the mid fifties. Woo Hoo! We need to enjoy today because the colder temps and maybe some not so nice weather is headed back to us.
Well, Friday Deanne and I had submarine sandwiches for our "take out" lunch. I had the steak, green pepper and cheese. Oh my, yum yum! I ate the whole thing! Actually, I shared a lot of it with Pogo. He really enjoyed it! I should do something like this once a month.
I still have my cold. I'll probably have it all winter. Arghhhhhhhh! It hasn't gotten better, but at least it is not worse. I'm keeping a good supply of cough drops on hand, some of them are from Vicks and they taste like Vicks! They numb the whole mouth!
Today, let me share something fun I borrowed from the latest issue of the AMAC magazine. Do you remember this?
Mr. Potato Head was introduced in America on May 1, 1952. The first Mr. Potato Head cost $0.98 and was sold without a plastic potato body. Instead, you used a real potato as a base in which to insert body parts. This, of course, eventually evolved into the plastic potato shaped figure that we know today. Mr. Potato Head was the first children's toy to be advertised on television.
While watching one of the shopping channels on TV, I came across a very interesting item that was being showcased. It's a bag to carry your medicine around in. Really? They showed someone carrying this case everywhere they went. Why? Why do we need to take a whole pharmacy with us?
I think the bag is nice to store the meds in, but I just don't understand carrying it everywhere we go. Of course, I don't take this many meds so maybe there's a lot I need to learn?
Today, I need to finish packing up the last of the packages that I need to mail out for Christmas. My grandson Kevin is coming by tomorrow to pick them up and take them to the Post Office for me. What would I do without that young man? He's awesome!
After that, I just have to send a bunch of bundles over to Deanne's house and I'll be done. Except for Christmas Eve when Santa gets here. I can't believe I actually got it all done in time. It feels really good.
Meanwhile I'm ignoring the junk mail that is piling up. I guess that can keep me busy after all the packages are gone. Hmm, there's always something. Ah well. What would I do without all this wonderful junk mail to keep me busy?
Now I'm off to get started on that packing stuff. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
