Katie’s Kindness

Kind Aunt Katie’s one of my favorite aunts!!       Only one of, tho, since I have several, on that side of the family.    ( Not naming the other side today, we ain’t got time for that!!)     Aunt Sherry, of the porch, Aunt Cathy,( Katie’s twin), Aunt Minnie, Aunt Diane, and Aunt “The One Who Shall Remain Nameless” that shaved my head, when I messed it up the last time.

Katie’s kindness, and sweetness, are trademarks of hers!

I always buy her a Christmas present, of some sort.      For a few years, it was a $10 Walmart card.       On the lean years, it was only a tube of Cherry Chap Stick.      

slob, humor, cheap gift

But it was the thought that counted, she always insisted!

This year she surprised me with a $25 Outback card!!!    Wow! Blew me away!   I love that woman!!

slob, humor,                             slob, humor, surprise!

I was so surprised, I was speechless!      (How often does THAT happen?????)

Now, I have to carefully plan my menu…

A GF Chocolate Thunder from Down Under for sure!!!

slob,humor, GF dessert

2 spoons?? I don’t think so!!!

 

And an $11 steak special!!            The big question,  “Will I have enough left over for a cherry Sprite???”

slob, humor, steak special      slob, humor, drink

                           Oh brother, there I go slobbering on the keyboard again!

 

Putrid Purse

Aha!  I have finally de-cluttered something!  Only 1 thing, but whatever!  I have de-cluttered!!

 

I haven’t been able to say that for over a month.  (We won’t say HOW far over!)

Here is my pretty purse, that Aunt Sherry gave me for my birthday.  (Yes, Aunt Sherry from the porch.  If you missed it, go read all about it!)

Unhappily, something happened, and all at once, all 4 handles were coming unglued.

It was weird!  All 4, just hanging by threads!  All at the same time!!  I don’t remember doing anything to cause that.   

Anyhoo, can’t use it like that, I might lose all my valuables!!  Yes, my watermelon Purell IS very valuable, to ME!!  {Do you KNOW how much this stuff costs at Bath and Boo boo Works???  And it has a hanging strap!!}

So, regretfully, I kissed the purse goodbye, dangled it over the trash bin…

Sherry and me, around 1963

Sherry and me, around 1963

This is my Aunt Sherry, and I on my Grandma’s porch.  My Grandma – who is her mother’s porch.

Sherry is only 5 months older than me.  And no, I never called her Aunt!  Except to tease her, and try to make her feel old!  Ya know, since she’s a  WHOLE 5 MONTHS!! older than me!

I’m on the right.  I think I’m looking down, and frowning because we were comparing our ugly Flintstone feet.

See how I’m kicking that right foot out??  I’m comparing how fat my foot is to hers.  It’s a whole family pastime, to whip out our piggies and see whose is the ugliest this year.  You should see all my aunts gathered together!

What? your family doesn’t do this?  Well, sorry for you, then!

Who pedals your car, when you’re all together???
