Pink Saturday 10/30/2010

Welcome once again to Pink Saturday. Please visit with Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for more participants.

And Happy Halloween, all your spookie chicks! I made this a couple of years ago and it still sits on my front porch all year round. I just wiped it down and added the sign for this weekend. I told you I don't "do orange" so this is my contribution to the autumn season.

It's been a rough week for me. I'm always smiling and a truly upbeat person, but when I laid this body down on my masseuse's table on Wednesday I just lost it. I'm glad I was face down because the tears started falling the second Maria put her hands on my body. She's a very, very caring person, and I'm just glad she couldn't see the tears flowing. Just her touch relieved a lot of stress in this old body. And trust me, this has been very stressful trying to get relief from the fall I took.

Anyway, I thought I'd just ramble a bit today. The earth is taking making its autumnal glory for the year and that perhaps is one of the things that can depress the human spirit, realizing I'm in the autumnal period of my life.

Our last 2 tomatoes from the garden and the last gardenias from the plant. You can't believe how fragrant these smell. Beautiful.

Random Thoughts:

I read recently where the schools are providing DINNERS for school children! My parents would have been appalled at this. Where in the world are their parents? We're paying for this with our tax dollars. I find this appalling that anyone even thought of this. Parents are stewards of their children, not anyone else. I fed my kids when they were home. I never let them starve. Just boggles my mind.

Did you know that P&G uses supercomputers to make sure that Pringles go into cans without breaking? I just love high tech stuff!

Why do models stand with hands on their hips in those photos of them attending events? Do they realize how stupid they look? Standard pose: Hand on hip, looking over their shoulder, one leg crossed over the other. As I said, stupid looking!
*

AND some of them have such huge breast proportions that I'm wondering if the world is facing a serious silicone shortage!
*

I love all the pictures I see of the English, Italian and French countryside but it's always perplexed me why they build them on hills or steep windy roads. Sheesh, there seems to be flat land around them. Why make it hard to build and to go to and from the grocers? Weird. Beautiful, but still weird.

My friend and I usually announce the end of our phone calls by asking each other if we've solved all the world's problems lately. We generally answer each other with this statement: No, but we haven't created any world problems lately either! Gives ME hope. ;-)

Until next time, my sweet chicks.
