Thank you for your service and delivering those awesome cotton candy cob webs! Those should go nicely on my haunted gingerbread house! Kind of weird though to see Christmas stuff next to Halloween, why not through in Valentines Day too? So confusing.
Frick: You remember the Hunchback of Notre Dame right?
Frick: Did you know he had a brother with no arms?
Frack: No, I didn't know that.
Frick: So you don't remember him? He had the same job as his brother
Frack: No, I don't remember that either, but his face rings a bell.
Good afternoon, folks! It's a beautiful day here. Hope you all are having a "bright, sun shiny day"! Oh, now I will have that song stuck in my head the rest of the day. lol...
Now that song is stuck in my head, too! (Lol, that's ok, tho)
Police have made an arrest in the Jessica Ridgeway murder case.
Woo hoo, I hope they fry the illegitimi.
I have some rope in the basement and a nice tall tree near the house.
Let me know if you need help "creating" a pain in his neck.
Your afternoon humor – Halloween themed: http://www.happyplace.com/18527/the-most-bizarre-sexy-halloween-costumes
Some might remember me talking a couple of months back about my friend who had a baby then heart complications.
They found out that it was a heart attack and stroke one-two-combo hit on her body. They had installed a device to help her heart while waiting for a transplant... and was able to go home after about 3 months of being in the hospital.
She'd been home for a week, and her husband noticed that the numbers for her device (a LVAD) were off... so she went to the hospital again on Tuesday night. Yesterday they found out that clotting had clogged the device and caused the motor to overheat. So they had to shut off the device, and were talking about next steps since she was stable...
When they got a call that a potential donor heart just became available.
The operation was last night.
So far, so good. The operation went well... they have to wait a little bit for the right amount of clotting to take place and then remove the device and seal her up properly... which will probably be sometime today.
Holy he!! that's alot of trauma for a new mommy! Positive thoughts & prayers to you, your friend and her family.
AleeD said it best. Ditto and regards. She's in our thoughts.
This is a big one to get through. whew.....(((((HUGS!))))) to her and the baby!
Ditto Alee and Mic, all the best for your friend and her family!
Crossing all toes and fingers, hoping for the best, and for the worst to be over for her. Hugs to you all.
My heart goes out to her and her family. Seriousness and flippant pun intended; only to lighten this dramatic but hopefully happy ever after story in her, her family and friends lives. Say a prayer for the donor.
Oh my! Positive thoughts being sent to all involved.
Now I say good afternoon! I snuck (is snuck a real word? Lol!) out for a car wash & much to my surprise, gas prices fell to $3.32! Yes, Mary Shannon, I am dressing up for halloween. I will be the wicked witch of the east (before the house smooshed her, haha), ruby slippers & all! I love halloween! As for the squirrel, JbJ, maybe it's an escape route from the neighborhood cats...? Haunted gingerbread house sounds very cool, too, btw. MicheleG, Have you ever had choc covered coffee beans? They're good in an odd way. Autumn Leaf, Lol, did you buy anything fun? :)
$3.32!! Where do you live?? I just paid $4.25 for regular yesterday and was doing a happy dance about it! Sheesh. And yes, I voted down the $6 Bazzillion a Year Tax Increase, Californians can thank me anytime...
S/He lives in an M T Nest, silly.
Too funny! I'm a she bird in my "m t nest"!
I paid $3.55 last month.
$4.25...ouch! I'm a Michigander. (Nice to "meet" you!)
How about $3.19 in Mansfield,Tx--I filled that sucker up. Wait--Don't shoot the messenger. :))
Would it be cost effective to drive over there and fill up?? I'm jealous...but not a killer.
If you had a Prius it might. Then you could have some REAL BBQ. :))
Hey Ms.Nest, I ended up buying 3 pairs of boots and some leggings. Weather was not a factor in my decision to purchase them.. It's 81 out now. Lol! Il bet you'll make a beautiful Wicked Witch if there's such a thing. Everyone have a great day!
Eek! I just hate it when I misspell my name.... So there!
I hate it when I do that!
Lol! If you call a green face beautiful, well, I guess so...Not! ;) Sounds like you had good luck shopping. Good thing you got those before they're "picked over".
If Autumn were to leak, what would it leak, leaves? LOL I like that moniker..
Yo Yo Yo. Whats up crew? Been on travel and out of pocket. Anything new going on?
MicG is going to freak out over that photo.
freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeak! especially if it's chocolate coffee!
That's coffee abuse. Before it got away from him, I hope he licked it up.
er....how to make spilled coffee x-rated.....
Good morning fellow Klatschkies! I brought in some grilled chicken/mango salso quesadillas for your noshing pleasure.
No dressing up for Halloween here, it's hard enough to figure out what to wear to work, than to complicate that with costume... I am thinking of making a Haunted Gingerbread House this weekend to bring in next week, I made one years ago and it came out really cute.
Dressing up for Halloween ... what's that about?
If anybody needs me, I'll be in the dungeon, polishing my patent leathers. ~_~
If you were to "dress up (or down)" for Halloween, would that be like a turtleneck sweater, slacks, and sensible shoes?? :D
Careful, you're heading down the "librarian fantasy" road.
Great idea JB! But scratch the pants. Make it a pleated skirt, just below the duck-line, thigh-hi white stockings, hair up in a sloppy bun, held with a sharpened pencil. The sensible shoes can be someone else's torture. Spiked patent pumps ATW ...
... and glasses. Gotta have horn-rimmed glasses.
Thank you. I'll be now heading to our gym for a cold shower.
Well that took an unexpected turn now didn't it...
I swear you two are as bad as guys are...:)
Not me!! I was innocent I tell ya. 0:)
I never saw the lunchtime poll.
LOL – How about a Question of the Day? Why do squirrels run across telephone/electrical wires up 30 feet in the air? I can't imagine that is the best way to get around...just sayin'.
Less chance of being hit by a car up there?
That is true if said wire is over a street, but I saw one today running along up there, when there was a perfectly fine, and safe, sidewalk below. I see them run across the wire over busy streets on my morning commute, and I get that one, but really why do they need to get across the street!?
If I were a squirrel I'd find me a dog free backyard with big trees and I'd be home never to cross a street...
I guess even squirrels need vacations away from home sometimes!
Because it's easier to run with the current.
HA!!!! Did you lose your x-ray glasses?
Welcome back, Out of Pocket. Please tell the class, what do x-rated glasses look like?
(MicheleG started this)
Something like this:
Don't worry, its overstock.com not anything bad.
That's such a letdown. At least I didn't get rick-rolled.
Wonderful weather here in VA. I'm dippin' out for a walk. MS, nope not dressing up here for Halloween. Though if I did, I'd probably go as Peewee Herman. : )
Dirty Dan's Den of Delight is throwing a costume party down in Richmond aren't they?
Good am! Sunny and 81 here so I'm taking advantage of the nice weather and going for a walk – in the mall! LOL!
Welcome, and please be sure to take your suglasses and apply sunscreen, those harsh lights in the mall are dangerous. :)
Good morning! Still dreary and rainy here. I hope the rest of you have better weather than me, sure looks like MT does!
Anyone dressing up for Halloween?
I often dress up, but I'm not sure what I'm doing this year.
Good morn! Rain finally stopped, a high of 75 today, & of course, I'm stuck indoors today...no fair! Tomor is 77, then by weekend, high of 47...crazy, huh? Time to start thinkin' about a big pot of w/e chili, I guess.
