Remember When:

Well while taking the lovely picture of my feet for my giveaway clue I couldn't help but laugh. I couldn't believe that I was actually taking a picture of my feet! I instantly was thrown back to the good ole days before digital cameras. Yep the days when we had to take our roll of film in to be developed or send it out by mail. Oh how exciting it was to see your new pictures and suddenly oooops you come across the picture of the back of Great Grandma's Head, yeah a picture of the ceiling, I even have gotten one of the back of my stove, lol. Who in the world is taking those pictures, giggle, giggle. All of the pictures of my son taking pictures of himself, that use to drive me crazy!! The worse part of that is he and his buddys at 26 and 27 will still do that if you leave the camera unattended, urrrggggg. I can remember getting so frustrated thinking I can't believe they make you pay for these pictures! Getting pictures developed is something else I don't do well. I had my sister's baby shower pictures developed when her son was 8 years old, lol. I currently have 10- 12 disposable cameras that need to be developed, surprise, surprise. I took my memory card in 2 weeks ago from my digital camera and was instantly sent into price shock. Love those memory cards, they hold lots of pictures and I love to take pictures (although I am a terrible photographer). Took my card in to be developed for my grandson's school project along with a disc, nope the disc did not get developed that day. I had 214 pictures on my memory card for a total $32.10, wowzer. The good news is at least they are all pictures I want no floors no ceilings yippppeeee. So what did I learn about that, well not to wait untill my memory card is full before I have it developed, yeah right like thats going to happen.

So yes to purposely take a picture of my feet made me snicker, the good news is at least now with digital cameras it won't make it to film it will be deleted, lol.

So on that note I will leave you with this, to go along with the picture of my feet, lol.


Do you remember when, lol???????

Lucky 13 Giveaway Updates will be coming soon.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you leave with a giggle to start off your weekend.

Paying Kindness Forward For Tootsie

During the process of our move to our new home I received some very sad news. With just 3 days before the move I became very sad that one of my Ebay customers had passed away. She was so much more than just a customer though. We spent lots of time talking to one another by email in the wee hours of the morning, you know the hours, yep, the ones when most people are sleeping. We had built a wonderful friendship and I miss her terribly. So I decided that I needed to do something, but what she isn't from my area, suddenly it hit me A Giving Works Auction on Ebay. So here she is all decked out and ready to go to her new home. My friend loved animals and was a huge cat fan (she owned 4), so I have decided that the proceeds will by donated to the Humane Society USA. I know this isn't much, it can't even begin to cover the way she touched my heart, but it feels right and that is what counts.

I am donating 100% of this auction and I will be paying the shipping fees to anywhere within the US. I am listing her tonight at approximately 8:30 pm Eastern time on Ebay. Thanks for looking.

Let me introduce to you: TOOTSIE PEPPERMINT, isn't she scrumptious, PS, no licking the kitty, lol.


Thank you for gathering here and I hope you have a great day.
