I got a new keyboard

Next Tuesday is my birthday. And I have always wanted a wireless mouse.  So, since Dell is still laid up in bed, he bought me a birthday present at the store today.

I am now the proud owner of a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard. I have always wanted a mouse, but when I checked out the different computer mouse, mice, mouses…, the box on the next shelf with both a cordless mouse and cordless keyboard was on $20.00 more.  It is a Logitech keyboard, mouse and speaker in a box.  So far the mouse and keyboard are great.  I can’t wait to try to speakers.

beehive pincushion

Kalling all friends.  As you can see, I have joined the Pincushion Swap.  And, being from Utah, I plan to make the beehive a part.  But I really have not found one I love. 

So……If anyone has seen or found a cute pincushion centering around a beehive, please leave the location for me. 

Or if you think on of the beehives below is “to die for”, vote on it now.

Thanks for your help.

Lish 1

If you remember, my niece, Alicia, is getting married.  Her mother is a single Mom, so I want to help if I can.  Well, I have agreed to help with the decorations at the Wedding. I need to call Alicia and get all of her specs about what she wants, etc., what colors she thinks to include, etc. Can you say Answer Your Phone…

Mom is making the dress and it will be beautiful.  She was stressing because she wanted to have a fitting and SOMEONE was not answering her phone.  I told her that after dark on Saturday night was SUNDAY and that she should not be sewing.  It was rest time. I don’t think she took my word though. I’ll bet she kept working.  She IS like that.

Oh yeah….. I think I have volunteered Christine and I to do the decorations. I probably should call her before she gets a chance to look at this.  Or she will get a big surprise.

We are also planning a Bridal Shower for Lish.

Can you say… “What were you thinking”  No, just kidding. I am looking forward to the entire summer.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

UNCLE I just rented the first disc from the first season of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo and David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin. Weren’t we all in love with these two?


Does anyone remember was U.N.C.L.E. stood for? No fair cheating BY looking on the Web. Or on Netflix.

I remember watching this show as a child. The first season was in 1964, which I barely remember, so it was probably much later that I remember, especially since these episodes are in black and white.

I had this confused with Get Smart, because I though their arch enemy was KAOS. Of the 3 episodes on this disc, each had a different group trying to overthrow a government, each time a different country. One was what I assume was a country in South or Central America, because she had a Spanish accent. The second was a country in Africa where the "bad guy" was the President and he was going to kill off his ministers. The third was a group from Yugoslavia.

What I had forgotten, or not realized at the time, was the role women played in these films. Either she is answering the phone 0r radio in a bikini (2-piece swim suite to those of you under 50) or she is pulling files to be ogled at or getting coffee for the men.

There are female guest characters who plan a strong woman who is in control. But most of the strong women were "bad guys". No wonder I wanted to become a secretary

Jack Hannah

Those of you who know me, know how I feel about Jack Hannah. Now Jack has done a lot to promote wild animals. He brings them on talk shows and you get to see a little bit of an animal that you would not get to see otherwise. He does enrich our lives. BUT....

The first time I became disolusioned with Jack Hannah was on the Tonight Show. He was showing some type of monkey. Unfortunately, the cutie chose just that time to relieve himself. Yeah. He peed on Jack Hannah.

Now when you work with animals, it should not surprise you when the animal relieves itself. Hardly anyone in the family has not had Roger or Blanket relieve themselves when being held. It is sort-of an editorial comment. You know.... Put Me Down NOW!!

Well, tonight Jack Hannah was on Letterman. First, he brought out a baby porcupine, and gave Letterman some dead crickets to feed it. It was not hungry and Letterman got poked by the quills. then Letterman brought out this bird, a crane I think. The assistant put food on the desk so that it would land on the desk. Then Hannah gave Letterman some food in his hand to feed the bird. And the bird pecked the hand instead of the food, spilling it all over the desk. Needless to say, anyone who has been pecked knows that HURTS. Last was a cat, I cannot remember what kind. They brought out a milk bottle for the cat, but he wanted the crickets, probably because their natural food is bugs. So the cat is scratching at Letterman, probably quite hard, as cats will do.

Then Jack Hannah was calling for another animal, but Letterman called for a break, saying there were no more animals. Hannah was trying to explain that there were more animals to come out, but Letterman would have nothing of it. Hannah was given the bums rush.

Kimmie's Birthday.

My sister, Christine, posted about her fellow Flutterbyer's birthday. Kimmie is giving away lots of yummy candy, lot’s of stamps and also some stamped images. Isn't she great.

I don't know how to make a "link" yet, but here is the place:

Good luck.
