Hey Kate, guess what I have...
A blue rose of sharon.

Figured that the lady of the "too blue garden" would appreciate it.

If You've Got It, Flaunt It!

Since this is only the second time in my life I can remember this happening, I figured I'd preserve it for posterity.


It's been unnaturally humid for Utah the last couple of days and my underwear wasn't wanting to cooperate as I donned it after my shower. By the time I got it on and the essentials jammed into place, everything was all humidity glued together in unusual positions. I was so astonished and delighted that I had to grab the camera to document that I do indeed have enough boob to make cleavage.

(Last time was when I was a gypsy for Halloween and stuffed three socks into each cup underneath the organic filling. Not particularly comfortable, but mildly spectacular.)

Returning On a Rant

Last time I did apheresis, as usual, I went to the snack area after they took the needle out of me.

Sigh, they've changed the kind of snackies they provide, no more Charles Chips cookies. Guess I'll take an Oat & Honey Granola Bar. Probably better for me. And no more bottled water in the refrigerator, nor any more 12 ounce cans of juice, just the little 5.5 ounce cans. Think I'll try apple juice today.

So I grabbed a granola bar and a can of apple juice and headed for my car.

Now I don't want you to think that the treats are the reason that I bleed in a bag biweekly - it's actually for the comfy chair, movie, and being waited on hand and foot.

I plopped down in the driver's seat and, popping the top on the juice can, took a swig.

Then I looked at it.

Geeze o' pete, how dumb is Welch's? How dumb do they think I am?

Please note the label: "100%
Apple Juice
and the small print,

If it's got "ADDED INGREDIENTS" it ain't 100% apple juice, now is it?

False advertising really puts my knickers in a twist. Torks me off royally. Why didn't they just leave off the "100%" so the can would be accurately labeled? Don't they know that impressionable school children could read that and have their math messed up forever? Some kid might decide flexible facts are the way to go and end up as a politician!
I think I've been married to an engineer too long.
The anal retentive is rubbing off on me.

The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow

Just stickin' my toe in, testing the temperature. It's been a long absence.
