Pitbulls and Babies

I went out a little earlier to get a couple of things, walking of course.

I was able to wear my pretty dye-tied shibori dress with my black sweater.

I had taken off my glasses because they kept slipping down my nose.

I see a figure of a person and their dog ahead of me in the distance.

As I got closer I felt a twinge of excitement, is that a Pitbull?
I put on my glasses and sure enough, it's a young girl with a white Pitbull.

As they close in the distance from me I can clearly see really is a Pittie.
My favorite kind of dog in the whole wide world.

Delighted I bend down to pet this adorable half grown Pitbull who wags her tail.
I asked for the puppies name which is Vera who poured out puppy love.

I continue on making my stop at Rite-Aid laughing with the clerks.
I get done there and make my way up to the Family Dollar.

I go in, get what I need and as I'm leaving I hold the door for a father
who had the cutest little baby.

All this joy and what I consider luck when I see either a puppy or a baby.
I hardly noticed those nasty little trolls banging away at all my joints.

I'm so glad I went out for sometimes it's just easier to stay at home.
What gives you great joy when you run into it?

How To Survive Waiting For Your Ride

Just getting home from seeing my Doctor. He likes to be with you when he is filling out questioners from my lawyer, so with an appointment, I came in.

As I may have mentioned before I get to schedule trips to and from anything that is relatable to medical issues. 

You call ahead, three days before at least, schedule the trip and when asked how long you are going to be there, you give them a time. I usually make it for an hour.

Like all other systems of this nature, there are going to be mishaps, lack of communication and general chaos. If you adapt to all this you can come out ahead of the game...most of the time.

The last appointment despite my best efforts I had an hour to kill. It was a bright, blue-skied fairly warm day so I decided to lay out on the bench the building has out front.

I'm laying there using my purse as a pillow which gave me an idea for 'pillow purses', don't steal my idea, taking my glasses off to bask in the sun which felt wonderful on my face. Us Easterners need all the help we can get with our ghost faces.

I hear a car pull up and turn off. Then I hear a voice asking, "Are you o.k.? I assured her I was fine and off she went. That happened last week.

Today I only got to see my Doc for around fifteen minutes leaving me once again time to kill. I always chat with the receptionist and told her about what happened last week while I was waiting for my ride.

We both thought that sure wouldn't be good for business if they had a dead body out front. That's like pulling up to a restaurant seeing an ambulance parked out front. The room burst into laughter with the receptionist saying, "Sheryl made everyone laugh, see you later". 

Now I had forty-five minutes to kill so I headed straight to what is now my bench, sat down, stretching out. Not ten minutes go by and I hear, "You scared the crap out of me when you moved", "I thought something was wrong". 

I looked up to see her head hanging over the railing where you go in. I assured this woman I was fine and smiled to myself because she was going in and if she mentioned me my receptionist was ready.

What's the moral of this story you ask? It's how something so mundane can make smiles which I seem to have a gift for.

What are you happy about?

It's Spouses Day Today

Oh boy, it's Spouses Day today. If you don't have a spouse you can substitute your favorite fur-baby. Or maybe you have a furry spouse or a mousey spousey.

This day includes partnerships, people who may be in a common-law marriage, domestic partnership or civil union.

I think doing little things for your partner can be very uplifting. Leaving a random note, a hug or kiss out of the blue, opening the door for them, just being there.

Here are some ideas for that special someone in your life.:

1. Say, I love you.

2. Send a pretty e-card to them telling how much they mean to you.

3. Make a dinner that they choose.

4. Do a chore or errand for them.

5. Give or make they're a favorite treat.

6. Most important, tell them how much you love and appreciate them.

Enjoy your day everyone. May it be as special as you are.

How Does One Get Bored Of Life ?? - Osric Chau...A Million Dollar Question ??? Just A Little Effort Figuring Out..:-)

Hi Everybody I Can See Or Even Not See...Thats is the power of A Vast Technology..( good n Bad Included )

To begin with - Let me Thank Tim Clark n his Blog of Life Explained ( mind you I think he has taken on A Big Responsibilty of Explaining The Unexplainable...Can Only Be Lived..strived For and If Thrive Happens - so Much Better ) but thanks to him for actually allowing me to write my Radical Thoughts ..That's Brave of Him...LOL

Anyhow - As The Topic ( again acc to me - its a very inane topic Coz at least i have never gone through the Bored aspect...Angry , Pissed Off , Impatient but Never Bored...Life is too damn Vast for me in terms of Beauty , Emotional Cartwheels , Relationships Confusions To Be Bored...So why write About It ???

The reason i thought of this topic - Mainly after a conversation I was having with my son..who is learning the ropes of Responsibilty ( financial and emotional ) ..Learning to be on his own and like every person of their genre expecting Loads of Fun always..and probably getting bored the minute Loads of Fun Not happening Always ...Had to explain - its normal ...its ok to be Doing nothing with everybody all the time ( though i feel thats a cultural aspect of being Indian - we do have people around us always..LOL ) and not to mention i am a misfit in that case scenario...To cut it short...Bored happens when we do not know what to do with our own selves and have loads of time on our hands..Next step to boredom - diverges 2 ways...1 ) Find a hobby or an interest or 2 ) give in to it and bore others by talking about it...LOL ( btw for that too you need people around ...So step 1 works..To make things even better within those 2 days - got 2 People more telling me they are Bored to Tears or Bored outta their Wits...So here i m talking about a Topic as Mundane as That...Honestly speaking would like the views about it from you guys...

For me Boredom is the Next Step to Try out New Stuff...New Ideas...New People..And open yourself to things you have never done before...Might work or Might Not work...But the listlessness that Boredom Brings goes away...

Leaving You Guys with A Quote By Friedrich Nietzsche ..Took it from Life the way you want to is the Only Way To Live It..So Bored aint an option...:-)

Tips On How To Make A Friend

Take it from the animals. I was on a YouTube kick yesterday and ran across this video which made

me smile all the way through. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

If animals can do it so can the human race instead of trying to destroy each other.

Which animal friendship did you like?

Better Check Again

A Vermont man left the snow-filled streets of St.John for a vacation in Florida. His wife had gone to Los Vegas and was planning to meet him there the next day.

When he reached his hotel in Florida, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail. Unable to find a scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he tried to type it in from memory.

Unfortunately, he missed one letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

 At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

Tips On Using Cortana on Windows 10

Earlier I told Grandpa Rose I wanted to post on Life Explains Smiles for Tim Clark! I just had posted on The Whacko Humor blog for Jeremy Crow and was finally in a humorous mood wanting to keep up the momentum.

Both Grandpa Rose and I are still learning about Windows 10. Earlier we had used 'Cortana' trying her out. Grandpa Rose has this deep baritone voice and asked a question getting led to a site that had nothing to do with his question.

I would tell you the question but we are now officially old-timers with absolutely no memory it would seem. It's time to use those sticky notes!

Remembering that I exclaimed, "I can blog about Cortana using her directing me to the wrong site as my humor post". Let's ask her some questions. I click on the Ask Me Anything microphone in the right-hand corner signaling G. Rose to talk ready to laugh.

Wouldn't you know that suddenly she could hear again getting all the sites question after question. Damn you Cortana!! You have spoiled my post!

Alas, I was quite worn out from my little outing to my local grocery store which I had stayed in all winter getting a ride so I wouldn't break my neck on the slippery ice and snow. My legs aren't used to walking again so I'm a little on the sore side. Damn you ice and snow!

Now with fibromyalgia, you never know what parts of your body are going to be affected this being day two of my getting out walking. When I got to the grocery store happily getting this and that I feel a twinge in my toes, in both feet! Then both of my calves muscles started sending out pain signals as well. Damn you fibromyalgia! I stand very still and thank goodness it didn't go into full out cramping. 

As I'm making Pumpkin Spiced Gourmet coffee I'm telling G. Rose the story adding I'm so happy I was able to remain standing because if all four parts, feet, and calves had started cramping I would have been laying on my back in the middle of the grocery store.

As I'm holding G. Rose's rapt attention at my marvelous storytelling I told him that's okay if I fell, I'd just tell anyone who bothered to ask that I love laying on the floor the views so much better down here pointing towards a stocked shelf to tell the clerk, "You gotta clean right there."

This is all Cortana's fault and I think she made it snow too! By the way, Cortana, #FixThePlus while your at it.

100 Exquisite Adjectives by Mark Nichol

I love learning new words or being reintroduced to one. I ran across a list of them and will add a word a day.

Word#47 Irksome: annoying

In a sentence: Cortana can be very irksome even when she is listening.
