Whose Butt is that?

My grandson happened to look out the window and see the white squirrel's butt sticking out of our tree. So I told him grab the camera and take a picture. He took this and its a very good one! (click on it to see it better)The hole was started by our oldest son cutting it off but not sealing it. Next thing you know we have woodpeckers pecking away at it. Soon we had squirrels in it. I thought they might be using it for their nest but when Mr Gab checked it was still just an empty hole. But right above him high in the branches he saw their nest! I'm still trying to get a picture of the all black squirrel.

Friday Laugh

A man and a woman were asleep like two innocent babies.
Suddenly, at 3 o'clock in the morning, a loud noise came from outside.
The woman, sort of bewildered, jumped up from the bed and yelled at the man "Holy CRAP, That must be my husband!"
So the guy quickly jumped out of the bed, scared and naked he jumped out the window like a crazy man.
He smashed himself on the ground, ran through a thorn bush and then started to run as fast as he could to his car.
A few minutes later he returned and went up to the bedroom and screamed at the woman, "I AM your husband.!"
The woman yelled back, "Yeah, then why were you running?"
And that how the fight started.

My pain.

Wow what a big cat! lol

This is Pumpkin holding watch over me. When Puff was alive both cats would sit either under my chair and sleep or up on my bed, where they could keep an eye on me. Now pumpkin has to get right up there on my desk and yes in my way sometimes. As you can see he's laying in front of my scanner and my screen. In fact it looks as if he may even be laying on top of the key board. That is nothing new. Many times I'll be doing some thing and all of a sudden zzzzzzzzzzssssssssssssssssaaaaaaaaaaa go across my screen. I then have to move his butt or the keyboard. It is more easier to move the keyboard than him!!!!! I find myself reaching over every so often to give him a pet.

Public Service Announcement

I know that if I heard something that I thought might help others out I would be sure to blog about it. But what if you heard something that you just were not sure about? What if it sounded like a crock? Do you still blog about it?

Well to answer my own questions,Yes I will blog about it and you tell me if its a crock or just give me your opinion.

Yesterday Mr Gab and I were watching some TV. Not even sure what channel we were on but what we heard shocked us.

It was a Doctor telling us some of the things that could cause Alzheimer's.

One of the things was if you went to the beauty parlor and got your hair done.(they said every week or bi-weekly)
another was if you got your nails done on a regular bases(recommended by salons are every two weeks)
Well now that caught my attention as I get my nails done (not as often as they say I sometimes go 4 weeks before I get them done again due to money).

So now what do I think? Well I do believe that going into nail salons the smell is very strong especially if they are quite a few people getting their nails done all at the same time. If there is only one or two people its not so bad. But the smell is awful. Could the chemicals they use play a part in you getting Alzheimer's?

This Doctor went on to talk about other hazards but at the same time he was "hocking" his book. So is it possible that going to get your hair or nails done that you could be endangering yourself to an early on set of Alzheimer's? Well I'm just not sure. But why take a chance? And as for telling all my blogger friends well lets just say I'm doing my part in a public service announcement just in case there is any truth in it.

Come on your kidding me right?

So you all know that Ive been separating all my money lately, and Ive got one jar that Ive labeled "funny money" money that's from other countries.

Well.....the other day I had to take some money to the bank. So I counted enough change to make $100. with the bills I had so that I could just make it even.

I went to the bank and told them I needed to deposit some money into my account and that I was sorry but I needed to use some change to make it an even $100.

Lady said to me no problem. She went into the other room and dropped the change into a machine to count it out and came back, and then handed me my receipt, and 2 nickles.

I said I need those nickles added in to make $100. and she says I'm sorry we don't take Canadian money.

You what I asked her?

We don't take Canadian money.

If you a bank don't take Canadian money who does? I asked

Oh she says just use it when you buy groceries, they have to take it.

Well my grandson just happened to have a dime so I had her add that to my account to make that even $100.

Then I went into the store and bought some little items that I knew with what cash I had plus the 2 Canadian nickles I would be able to pay for it.

BUT...........................I get to the counter and hand the lady the money and she says "I'm sorry we don't take Canadian money.
I laughed my butt off and said but the bank told me you did.

She tells me sorry no do I have any other nickles?
I tell her no and I'm sorry but I don't want the groceries I had. and I walked out.

My grandson asked me "grandma what are you suppose to do if the store wont take them either?"
Good question I tell him.

I stopped at McDonald's to get a drink for the two of us cause we were hot and the total came to $3.10. Hot dog I thought I'm getting rid of those Canadian nickles.

But you guessed it. I handed her the money and she tells me I'm sorry we don't take Canadian money.
I told her she was going to have to keep the drinks as I didn't have enough money.

So I added them to my "funny money" jar. Maybe some day I'll get to Canada and be able to use all my "Canadian funny money!"

Hope your week is going well!
