Do ya think this will work????

I KNOW this one won't!
I spotted both these remote controllers at no place other than Books-a-Million! For purposes of quality control, I was tempted to point the first one at the male cashier but fought the urge. Note the middle button for the man control specifies "Proposal" while the one for the woman has a "Remove Clothing" command. Very sexist! I must admit that, if I was single, I would have wanted to use the "Remove Clothing" command waaaay before even being tempted to click the one for "Proposal". Let's be honest: How do we know we'll need the Christmas gift before we rip off the wrapping?
While I was there, I spotted the newest edition of Somerset Home and was pleased to be introduced to blogging authors whose blogs I had previously missed. I'll be happily surfing those blogs later this afternoon.
Did you notice that I didn't post last week? There's a reason for that, one that I wasn't going to mention. But at this very moment, for some unknown reason, I am driven to a confession. I was recovering from a concussion and a few other bodily injuries, including a badly bruised hip (the bruise covered over ten square inches). No, it wasn't from an auto accident. I'd love to say that I was in a yachting accident because that sounds so much more glamorous than the truth. Okay, the simple truth: I fell out of bed.
Now, before you laugh too heartily (go ahead, take a few moments...), let me explain that our bed is elevated on tall risers so it is a long distance from the top of the mattress to the floor. My doctor pointed out that I am not that big (unfortunately, meaning tall, not petite) to begin with. Anyway, I smacked my head on my dresser, hit my shoulder on something and my side and right hip got to know the edge of my treadmill rather intimately. (Yes, I know - I watch the decorating shows and understand that it is not fashionable to have your treadmill in your bedroom.)
Anyway, I am mostly recovered now and will soon be posting photos of the items that will be included in the August Giftaway.
By the way, I was told during my examination that "you would be surprised how many people are injured falling out of bed..."!

Hi Sher...I'm laughing, but I've fallen out of our bed more times than I care to count. Glenn just rolls his eyes at really sucks getting old, because the bruises take so much longer to go!

Take care and hugz,

For a moment there, I thought you were going to say that you would take pictures of your bruises for us.

That was quite a fall and my advice is to not do that again. My other advice is to not inhale a piece of potato chip. There, I think that covers it for right now.

I am glad you are back to blogging. I missed it a whole lot. I check your blog frequently.

LOve, Janet

Michele, maybe we should both get some extra pillows and tuck them around the corners of our furniture. LOL!

Janet, thanks for the potato chip advice. I'll try to keep that in mind! LOL!



Hi Sher,
YES, I was wondering what had happen and glad you are okay!? How are you doing...ouch! Glad you are back and looking forward to new posts. Use "Gramma's " have to stick together :)
Warmly, Deb
