Shame Shunned

Yep, you thought I was fresh outta shameful secrets, huh?

Nope!!

This decision has been a long- long- super long time in coming!!

And no, I did not scrabble thru the garbage to retrieve them!       Aren’t we proud of me??

Yes, I am- quite!!

Thank you, really!!           And I don’t even miss them!                       What rolls of film?????   Shame shunned!!         Another decades long weight off my shoulders!

 


(Haha!    I outsmarted you, WP lack of memory storage!!)

Tiny Teal Table

Authoress51 was worried that I had run outta material.     No, just money!!     I have bought my own dot com, but can’t get it working yet.      And I’m out of storage here on the WP free plan…..     So, until I can get something worked out, I have to recycle.        This is a new post, because I had already loaded the one pic.     I had 3 more, that I wanted to add, but can’t.  😦       I hate publishing posts without pix!!       Thanks for the concern, Authoress!

 

 

Well, it definitely is tiny.        And certainly a table.      The teal part, eh, not so much.       But, it is blue!        Which teal is a kind of…..

When I lived in the trailer, PPJr , oops!   ChunkChunk, was in her high chair, and PP sat at the tiny, teal table, and the grown ups used TV trays.           Since CC has outgrown her high chair, she now sits at on a stool, at the dining room table, alongside PP.         S0 now we had no more use for the ttt.

DD1 decided it would make a great plant stand, and out to the porch it went.        That worked for awhile.    

Then, it was time for a switch up.       The plants went elsewhere, and the tiny teal table…..

Was left lonely, littered with leaves.       (And plant stakes.)

slob, humor, littered table

Littered with leaves, and plant stakes.

And DD1 decided it was no longer needed in our home, due to its poor condition!       The corners were the worse for wear, and the babies had decided it was too fluffy, and had been pulling the stuffing out, stealthily, for some time.

(Look in the top left corner, really closely!)

Pop was the pall bearer, for the disposal of the body.       Thanks, Pop.        He is so dignified and respectful.

You served us well, tiny, teal table.

Victim: Vanronica

I don’t know quite how to break this to you, Gary….  but Vanronica might have to be put down.     

She broke another leg.

slob, humor, Vanronica

Oh no!! Poor Vanronica!

The 4th one this year!!      Well, technically, she broke the same one twice, front left, and then a right front, and now the rear right.

 

slob, humor, tire missing

slob, humor, Vanronica

Eeww! She needs her hooves filed, or something!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Maybe we need to repave her track???)

Thankfully, XH is a tire man, and always rides to the rescue when I call!!       What would I do without him??         Well, this time I’d be walking!

Thank you, XH, for rescuing me again!!

 


I know who to blame this time!!     And I’m gonna name and blame!!

IRMA!!       Good thing she’s already hightailed it outta town!        I’d be after her with a vacuum, to suck her up!

Oops!!        I’m sorry!         I was trying to avoid saying her name again!!         Yep, this makes the 5th time!

Watson Watch

Today is exactly 2 years since my BIL, Jeffery went home to the Lord.

So many changes.         So much suffering, and grieving for him.         He can’t ever be replaced.

Yes, life has gone on, but hearts are still broken, lives still shattered.          Pieces still being picked up.

He hasn’t shed any tears.       We’ve shed oceans full.

He is still dancing, and rejoicing in the presence of Jesus.        We are still going on with life, missing him, looking forward to the day we get to go up to heaven to join him.

We watch, and wait for the day of the Return of Jesus, in the clouds!!

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
Please get ready to be in heaven with us!!
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Caffeine Cackles

Okay, since I’m having a media storage crisis, which can’t be fixed right now, (I’m broke), I have to just reblog old stuff. Which I was already doing anyway, so – yay!!

Here’s an oldie, but a goodie!!

https://purpleslobinrecovery.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/java-joe-jokes/

Sip some caffeine, of your choice, and have some cackles!!

(Sorry no pix.     Refer to first paragraph.)

Buh Bye Bob!

Okay, since I can not figure out what to do with water Bob, and PopPop has given me permission to break up with him in any way I see fit, it’s buh bye, Bob!        Now to break it to him.


Bob, it’s not you, it’s me.

Well, ok, it is you.

When we first met, I felt like you were the perfect one!     So nicely groomed, and packaged!    So precisely folded!      So useful!!

slob, humor, Water Bob

My new man!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But then, after we carried our relationship to the next level, you just sat there, wishy washy, as if you were filled with liquid, or something!        I need someone who is sturdy, and dependable!

True, you stayed in place, and never left me, but what a cold fish you were!!     I need more warmth than you provided.

slob, humor, water stored in the tub

Once the crisis was over, you deflated like a balloon.      I need someone who can stand beside me, come what may, both good and bad!

You never once gave me any compliments, or responded verbally in any way, when I spoke to you.        I have to have conversation!!         The strong silent type is not for me!!

And I really hate to mention this part, but you need to know.      Your hygiene wasn’t the best, at the end.         You didn’t finish drying off after your shower, and there was a …                                         I have to say it…… a slight mustiness about you.           When I make an effort to stay clean, and fresh smelling for you; the very least you could do is show me the same courtesy! 

 Then, you just stayed in the corner, all balled up, like a useless blob of nothingness.     

slob, humor, empty water bob

Bob is a big, blobbing bother now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get up, and do something, man!!           I have my own depression issues, I really don’t have time, or energy to be your caretaker!!

Maybe next time, things will work out for you.       It was nice knowing you.

Buh bye Bob!!

Choco Chunk

Long, long ago, someone (or maybe more than one) told me I need to give PPJr her own name.         And I know I should….    just: life, ya know?

So, now I finally decided it’s time.        The poor baby has been Jr long enough!!

PopPop already calls her Chunk.       If you saw her, you’d know why.       I think I may have already stated why.          Why yes, yes I have!            Anyway, it fits!             And, since alliteration is my thang, I thought, well, I already have half her name there, get busy and alliterate!

And in keeping with the food theme, (Pudding Pop) the other part of chunk has to be food.            And what food springs to mind first, that starts with ch??              Chocolate of course!                   But Chunk Chocolate is kinda awkward.       Not to mention way longer.        So, I tried out Chocolate Chunk.          (Isn’t that a candy bar??)               But still, as previously mentioned, too long. 

slob, humor, chocolate chunk

Look what turned up, when I searched for chunk!

 

 

slob, humor, Big Hunk candy bar

So I was off by one letter….

 

slob, humor, chunks

Yummy!

Gotta love the purple!

Thinking cap on.

slob, humor, thinking cap

It’s obvious why I had to choose this one, even though I’m not a little boy!

 

 

slob, humor, brain thinking cap

But I had to have this one too!! Couldn’t resist!!

Choco Chunk for the win!!

CC for short.       You’re welcome, Jr!

 

Outside Ousters

Just in case you thought I made up another word:

Ousters – definition of Ousters by The Free Dictionary

a. The act of ejecting, forcing out, or supplanting. b. The state of being ejected, forced out, or supplanted. 2. One that ejects, forces out, or supplants another.


Annnnnd, just when you thought you’d never have to hear the word “Irma” again, here she is back for a fourth appearance.      (Dare we hope fourth, and final appearance??)

Oops!!     I forgot to show you the other day, the first, and most important inside prep I made for Irma!!

slob, humor, saving the ice cream

Had to save the ice cream from melting!!

That was job one!!       (Apologies to Ford!)

Onto more serious things.

These were the outside ousters for Irma.      Ya know, the stuff that might fly around and hit somebody in the head, and knock ’em out!!

Backyard stuff brought inside, away from Irma’s ire!

Front yard stuff brought into the porch, out of harm’s way.

Man, that trash bin was stinky!!   

Our neighbor had a terrific idea!  

slob, humor, sandbags on doorstep
Can you see the sandbags on his doorstep??

His apt. is ground level, whereas ours is 3 steps up!!

 

XH went around and closed all the jalousie windows, on the porch, the laundry room, and the bathroom.          A lot of the cranks were busted, so it had to be done from the outside.        So it was a man job!

So, that’s about all I have to say about Irma.        Hopefully since we’ve seen the backside of her, and know she can’t ever bother us again, I won’t need to mention her a fifth time, either!!

 

Oh, wait!!      Here’s one effect from her, that I’m not sure what to do about.

slob, humor, empty water bob

What do I do with this mess???       Water bob is a big, blobbing bother now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do I try to dry it out somehow???        I hung it over the shower curtain for 3 days, not effective.         And if I try to fold it up, and keep it, won’t it be mildewed next time I need it????

Okay, I think I have well and truly exhausted the topic of that wild, windy woman, you know who!

Judicious Jewelry Jet

Last week, after my nerves had settled down after Irma, I needed to do a quick purge of something!

So, I looked around, and decided to grab my jewelry box.      Which I have not even opened since we’ve moved here, back mid-May!

Here it is:                                                                                                   Inside:

slob, humor, lots of jewelry junk

So.Many.Things.

slob, humor, jewelry box

Such an appropriate slogan!

An overwhelming pile of junk stuff.            Ok, ok, let’s separate it into categories.

Earrings:

How many sets of ears do I think I actually have????

Other things:

Whoa!!      Whaaaaaat???         Just start with the earrings.

Okay, deep breath!!        Strawberry earrings, 3 pairs exactly alike; so I can probably get rid of 2.      Good!       A brand new pair, with magnet, that have not even been opened!!   That I’ve had since 2011!!       Guaranteed I will not miss them!         And 1 single.      Jet!!   I don’t do singles, and certainly not posts anymore!!          See ya!

Now, out of ten items, only 2 left.       Excellent!!

Next!!

slob, humor, shamrock earrings              2 shamrock sets; I can only wear 1 pair at a time, and St. Patrick’s Day is only once a year, so 1 set has to go.      Shoo!!

slob, humor, sparkly earrings

All the sparkles!!

                                                                                I don’t like the pink ones, because they snag.                                                      And I’m just over the others.

Whew!       Those were all pretty easy to work thru.         But,   Dun Dun DUN!!       Now here comes all the purples!!!!

slob, humor, all the purple earrings
All the purples!

10 pairs of purples, to be exact.

I hope I can do this without crying!!

I let them all go.       Say what??  

I let them all go…..

And I didn’t even cry!!

Next!  slob, humor, light bulb earringsslob, humor, DD2 made these

These pretty cross ones were made for me by DD2.    Not going anywhere!!       The light bulbs are my only Christmas ones.        Staying!

Next!

Melinda, I just wanna tell you, ya’re doing good!!      I’m proud of you!        Thanx!                   I appreciate that!

slob, humor, 2 misc earrings, and a bobby pin      Huh, well, easy enuff, be gone!

These are tie pins, so technically jewelry, I guess??

Honor roll pin from  high school???    college????       I didn’t even remember I had it, so no pain to let it go.         DCT pin, I know is from HS.        Don’t even care now.       Bye!     And tiny baby feet, to protest abortion.        I will keep 1 set, just not both.  

Next!!

Charms:

slob, humor, necklace charms
I don’t wear necklaces ever, so….

The purple heart, and the strawberry can go.       The 2 pix charms, I have larger sizes of both pix, so they can go.          The HS key??        I’m keeping, because I lost my class ring, so this is in lieu of that.

Now onto more misc. stuff that is not jewelry!

The clear cover is to my seam ripper.       It will go back on there, so I don’t lose a finger!    Scissors will go in sewing stuff.        Ya think??          Foreign coins are from Mama.              I care nothing about them, and she cares a lot!        So, back to her they go!            The amethyst I’m keeping for now.            And the angel is from Bubba, so she stays too.

I forgot about 2 other pair of earrings, till I was scrolling thru my phone, but I got rid of them, so no pix necessary.

NOW:   Introducing my new and improved jewelry box!  

slob, humor, jewelry bottle, not box!
My new jewelry box!

 

 

 

 

 

                        FYI, jewelry bottle might be more descriptive.


I purged so hard!!      I really am proud of myself!       Numbers gone:

Earrings:  46/56!!         Charms:  4/5      Tie tacks: 3/4      Coins: 2/2      Misc: 3/5

58 outta 72  things gone!!

And as Jen says, “I never have to touch them again!”
