Apple Pie, Blueberry Pie, Lemon Meringue
At a restaurant yesterday:
Grandfather- Lisa, see if they have any chocolate pie. Me- No, they don't have any. GF- You'd think they would make pies and sell em, they could make a lot of money. Scott- Yep, they probably could. And this is where I felt as if I had walked into the Mountain version of Forrest Gump and was sitting with Bubba and Dubba... GF- They could make blueberry and sell em. Scott- That'd be good. Apple pie... Scott- Ooh, apple pie's good. I like apple pie. Lemon meringue... Scott- Yep. Cherry, peach, ... Scott- Yep, those sound good. Pumpkin... Scott- I don't care for pumpkin, but I think they could sell them.
And then they got to talking about Earl Scruggs dying and my
grandfather launched into singing Flatt and Scrugg's Salty Dog and then
Scott joined in. I'm sure the diners sitting nearby enjoyed the concert
immensely...I sure did.
My grandmother had to go to the ER today because she was having trouble breathing. When the doctor came in and told her she needed to stay a day or two for observation, she proclaimed this in front of him: "SHIT! You mean I have to stay? I didn't come up here to stay."
My husband had a doctor's appointment a few days ago and afterwards I asked him if he wanted to go anywhere else. He wasn't sure and then I reminded him that a new hardware store was open.
"Ooh. Let's go there", he exclaimed.
Cause, ya know, tools are da bomb.
So my first impression was that it was shiny and that most of the things in there I had no clue what they were. But the husband was happy.
"What's this?", I asked.
"It's a wrench."
"Oh. I just liked it cause it's the color of The Hulk."
Then he started explaining some thingabobby to me:
"Yeah. I don't really know what you're saying but that's ok. I'm tired. I think I'm gonna sit down."
"Can you sit in it or is it on display?"
"Uh. I'm gonna sit in it. I'll tell em I'm trying it out."
"Oh. It has a tray."
"Ooh. An armrest."
"I think that's to set drinks on."…
As far as politics go I tend to be slightly left of center. Though I am conservative in some ways. My cat, Sabrina, however, tends to lean more towards the right.
Yes. My cat is a Republican. While I believe in providing aid to those less fortunate my cat thinks they need to pull themselves up by their pawstraps. She wants Caticare and Caticaid to be cut. She believes that kitty stamps should be restricted to buy Meow Mix and not luxuries like catnip. If a cat can afford caticures and cattoos then they shouldn't be on public assistance.
I've tried to explain to her that kitty stamps cover very little and don't get a cat through the month but she just turns her head and goes back to reading Ayn Rand.
I'll keep trying to sway her but she can be one stubborn kitty. But I'm for sure getting rid of the Donald Trump poster.
