Back to Black-Saturday 9

On your mark, Get set,
Black Friday!
1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday, November 29, was "Black Friday," when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains?
I don't do BLACK FRIDAY or Brown Thursday, can't stand that stores opened Thanksgiving day. Get your Store coupon! I have/will order on line again this year.

Thanksgiving Meme-Sunday Stealing

1. What do you have for breakfast on Thanksgiving?
What ever does not take too long to cook if I am hosting TG. A nice breakfast for who ever is here if we are going to SIL's

Sugar Shack-Saturday 9

This song was popular 50 years ago today. Hear it here.

1) In this song, our hero orders espresso. What's your standard coffee order? During the holiday season I usually order Pumpkin Spice or something special for the holiday.  At home, where I usually drink my coffee, I will have regular coffee with International Delight Cinnabon Flavor.

Flying Cars-Revisited.


In a previous post, I wondered where my flying car was.....Here is the answer.  I have a feeling it will never happen if mankind has those kinds of restrictions.

The ASK Meme, Part 1-Sunday Stealing

1. What’s your favorite candle scent? 
I like the scents, that are like something baking. I don't bake as much and microwaves don't make the house smell as evocative as times past.
2. What female celebrity do you wish was your sister? 
I have no sisters, so....Melissa McCarthy seems very likable and real.  I have loved her since the Gilmore girls.

Chatting About Many Things

  1. Would you rather sit in front of a fireplace with a roaring fire, soak in a lovely bath, or spend free time on your computer? I love a fire place but I don't have one here in Missouri.  I will choose a lovely bath in my clawfoot tub.

Pet Peeves we all have them.  Here are a few of mine, that I have actually gathered recently.

Chatting about Rescues

  • Have you ever gotten a pet from a rescue? Yes our boy, Totem is a rescue, he was a casualty from the housing slump in CA.  His family could not keep him when they lost their house. I am getting ready to volunteer at the local Humane Society.  We have orientation on Thursday!
The reason we call him Totem that he sits like this....a Totem Pole!

I Don't Have Very Exciting Days

I am continuing with the November challenge and today's prompt is, BULLET YOUR WHOLE DAY.  To get this posted today I am going to have to make some assumptions.  I have highlighted everything I actually have completed.

·         Wake up, what day is this?

·         Stumble to coffee maker

My Favorite Reads


I love to read.  The prompt today is to talk about a book I love.  I would find it hard to just give you one book that I love.  When I was a child, I loved Little Women, I was like Jo but I aspired to be as good as Beth.

I Feel Strongly!


This is the month that I am going to do something to help out the Joplin Humane Society Animal Adoption & Resource Center.  I am going to start by taking my recycled news papers over to them and signing up for their volunteer program.  Maybe even today.  I'll let you know when I have done it.
