Old and disposable…

Standard

Yes, some things get old and all you can do is throw them away!  Makes me think about being disposable myself.  My printer bit the dust after 10 years of service…mmmm.. in dog years that makes it 70 yrs. old, same as I.

These days you don’t even have to leave the house; just get online and look for printers.  Found one that was $69…great!  Hope it lasts 10 yrs. but don’t hold  your breath.

It took me quite a while to install it.  I didn’t go to bed until midnight!  So…I guess that was about a 3 hr. job…compounded by the software repeating all the steps several times.  Finally I just turned off the computer, rebooted it, and everything worked fine.  So happy to have it.  I use it all the time.

Next time something breaks, make sure you check it out on google.com first.  If it can be fixed, you’ll find the solution there.  If not, just chuck it!  

Today is busy.  Have to play “high stakes Bingo”  jackpot $50.00.  Then bowling on wifi…last week I made three 200 scores!  Wow!  Second highest score at the Isles!  Wish me blessings!

God Bless.

My Bucket List: Late but not lost yet

Standard

At 70 everyone reviews his/her life and the things one didn’t get to do.  I thought I’d share with my readers my late bucket list.  These are items that I wanted from childhood, teenaged years, and adulthood.

1.  Visit England, and rest of British Isles

2.  Write a screenplay that is produced.

3.  Direct a full-length movie.

4.  Live in another country for 6 months or longer.

5.  Be an orchestra conductor.

6.  Change the education system in the United States.

7.  Be a grandmother.

8.  Spend a day shopping and not have to worry about the money.

9.  Paint a canvas that would become famous and expensive to buy.

10. Cure mental illness.

11. Become a “healer” and do the things Jesus did on Earth.

12. Go to heaven.

Seventy and Sharing: your opinion please

Standard

As people age, they tend to share more; at least that is happening with me.  I think of all the STUFF I have, and I want to share…give it away…get rid of it.  My latest idea is to take my good stuff, wrap it up and give it for birthday or Christmas.  That way I save money and someone else gets to enjoy my goodies.

Would you object to receiving my stuff?  I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but I live in a place that gets all my money each month.  I don’t have extra to buy gifts, etc.  Let me know what you think soon.  I am going on vacation and need to take along three gifts.

OK out there.  Give me an answer!

Have you missed me?

Standard

I have been so busy with Mah Jongg, canasta, and Mexican Train that I haven’t had the time to sit and write.

However, I have been thinking about my past and considering all the things that I did while young and how those things influenced who I am today.  One of the items was my years in Camp Fire Girls, a scouting organization much like the Boy Scouts of America, only for girls back in the 60’s.  Today it’s called Camp Fire, Inc. and is for both boys and girls.

Camp Fire girls had three levels based on age:  Blue Birds, Camp Fire Girls, and Horizon Club.

I remember looking through the manual and picking out all the things I could do to earn beads or pics for my vest (Camp Fire Girls)  I did all of the crafting units, cooking units, and other kitchen type exercises.  I also did outside sports and camp out experiences.  

I wish I still had my Horizon Club outfit.  It was a gown, an Indian gown, which was decorated with all the beads I earned.  I have stands and strands of string beads…orange, brown, blue, red, and red, white, and blue one.  When I was a senior in high school, our house burned down and I lost all those precious high school memories.

Well, it’s late, so I will close.  Keep the faith.  

God Bless!
