Nov 2019 FOTW

I normally use the online app for my Wal-Mart purchases but I had been couped up in the house with a tooth ache for several days. So what did I do? I took my list and off to Wal-Mart I went. Oooh bad decision. I think ALLL 142k people here had the same idea. Holey moley it was so crowded. It took me 2 hours! One of those was in line! Next time, I'll go to Home Depot and walk around. ugh...and y'all know I hate that place too.

I'm in line at Wal-Mart and an aide pushing a lady in a wheelchair, pushing a shopping cart comes up. The lady in the chair says "WELL I NEVER!" really super loud. Then proceeds to say "WHAT IS GOING ON. WHY are all these people here and no registers open?" She goes on and on, finally the aide says "No One cares, they are all in line just like us and probably want you to hush. Do you feel better now that you've let everyone know how you feel? Did it change anything?"
The lady in the chair says "well I do feel better  but I can feel it building up again so I'm warning ya it's gonna happen so git ready". I about fell over. It was funny to me I mean, we were all just standing there wishing the same thing. For more open registers.

Not a lot of funny stuff the end of October, both hubby and I had dental emergencies and spent several weeks in pain. Next plan? Knock them all out and gum our food to death.

I went to Florida the end of October to visit Southern Belle Charm owner Minette for her birthday. You can read all about it HERE.
While there I met some Florida natives. See below. LOL He's been there a while, all tan and leathery skinned.
A few months ago we were doing our normal Saturday shopping, we hit the thrift store each Saturday in hopes of finding something to re-purpose. We've done really well. Six chairs for a total of $11 plus $3 for paint. This particular Saturday we found a baby changing table and wooden wine rack. I told hub my idea and well, here it is!! I love it.
I was pretty sure that a raccoon was eating the bird food at night. So one morning I go out and well, here's the proof. Raccoon prints all over the deck railing from the suet block leading out into the back yard. LOL I knew it! Little buggers
On my way back from Florida it was pouring rain, at one point I was going 30 mph and could only see the big rig in front of me lights. Finally it slacked off and a car with Ontario tags passed me. On top was a HUGE pair of antlers!! Weird but I said, oh man, I gotta get a picture. Not very good but it was raining and I was trying to drive.
Belle Minette's husband had this tag hanging in the house. I found it funny. Growing up we always referred to big ol' boys as cornfed but never girls.


  1. Funny story about the lady in Walmart and WOW you did a great job on the changing table/wine bar!!

    1. Thanks. It was fun and a lot cheaper than buying a wet bar.

  2. Walmart lines are the worst, they deliberately don't open up registers because they want you to do it yourself, but I won't unless I only have a few items. Chances are, I could have been that lady . . .

    1. I'm trying NOT to be the lady in the chair, but some days I just let it fly.

  3. What a great wine "table!" It would have been very difficult for me to stay silent in the Walmart line-up. How did you do it?
