It's a romantic full moon, when Pedro said, "Hey, mamacita, let's do Weeweechu."
Oh no, not now, let's look at the moon!" said Rosita.
Oh, c'mon baby, let's you and I do Weeweechu. I love you and it's the perfect time," Pedro begged.
"But I wanna just hold your hand and watch the moon." replied Rosita.
Please, corazoncito, just once, do Weeweechu with me."
Rosita looked at Pedro and said, "OK, one time, we'll do Weeweechu."
Pedro grabbed his guitar and they both sang.....
"Weeweechu a Happy New Year.", Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, and a

Remember I posted about my sprained ankle a few times within the last two years or so? I fell down and went boom..bout three or four times...cause I'm such a klutz......(i don't drink, so that's not it). Anyhoo.....last Friday the contractor finished installing a side door on my house and called me out to look at it. I have a little side stoop with three steps going off to the right. I stepped outside and squeezed around him to view the door and next thing I know i'm tilting over, head first down the steps! Yeah yeah....funny huh? (actually it was, now that I think about it). If he just hadn't cut up the cardboard box and placed it at the bottom of the stairway, my head would have been cracked open, I'm sure of it......but the cardboard cushioned the fall and there I was, lying upside down on the steps! I did a number on my ankle (again).....damn.....and my head hurt a lil...but it seems to be ok now....unless of course I don't know it's not ok and this all sounds like gibberish and i really think i'm typing a post....Am I? ??

I saw this car in the lot of the bank I went to the other day and wish I had my regular camera with me. I shot this with my phone camera. I was waiting to speak to the owner to see what kind of car this was or even what year. I just thought it was so cool. The owner didn't appear and I couldn't wait, so I just took the shot. Happy Ruby Tuesday!!!!

Actually I didn't go fishing.......but I did go. Not to Tahiti :-( . Just to the shore. Hung out near the ocean and the sand with my umbrella and baseball cap in tow. I love being around water. I also love swimming in the ocean. I've done that all my life. But this week the undertow was so rough, I wouldn't even venture in. Five people in the area drowned last weekend because of it. I just took my lil beach chair to the edge of the water and let the water wash up on my feet. Read my book, took deep breaths, all is well with world. Almost. I got body slammed onto the sand! Not once, twice! I was just sitting there minding my own business positioning my beach chair in the sand with my butt...ya know wiggling down and anchoring it.....when I leaned back and the chair went too....with me in it!!! Bam. I've fallen and I can't get up! Everyone I was with thought this was pretty amusing and they were laughing so hard no one came to give me a hand........was pretty funny. I felt like an ass but hey, I'm happy to provide the entertainment. Fast forward to after lunch. We went and got a bar pie......came back and I sat down in the my chair and proceeded to put the umbrella back up. Lo and behold, a wind comes out of nowhere, swoops the umbrella and spins me around and plop, there I go again, over in my chair.......One of my friends yelled to her daughter to get the video going..........OMG if they ever got that on film I would have won America's Funniest Video!

Stunning Senior Moment
A self-important college freshman attending a recent football game took it
upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was
impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
'You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one', the
student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. 'The young
people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man
walking on the moon. Our space probes have visited Mars. We have nuclear
energy, ships and electric and hydrogen cars, cell phones , computers with
light-speed processing.. .and more.'
After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows:
'You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young....... .so
we invented them. Now, you arrogant little shit, what are you doing for the
The applause was amazing..... ..

I bought the hat box (or is it shoe box?) because it had a red shoe on it. I have thing for red shoes.

A woman in a hot air balloon realizes she is lost. She lowers her altitude
and spots a man fishing from a boat below.
She shouts to him, 'Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I
would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am.'
The man consults his portable GPS and replies, 'You're in a hot air
balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea
level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.0
9 minutes west longitude.
She rolls her eyes and says, 'You must be a Republican!'
'I am,' replies the man. 'How did you know?'
''Well,' answers the balloonist, 'everything you tell me is technically
correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm
still lost. Frankly, you're not much help to me.'
The man smiles and responds, 'You must be a Democrat.'
'I am,' replies the balloonist. 'How did you know?'
'Well,' says the man, 'You don't know where you are or where you're going.
You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You
made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect me to
solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we
met, but, somehow, now it's my fault.

The Teach sponsors Ruby Tuesday, where we post a picture of something red. The picture has to be one that you took. Here's mine for this week.
My boss has a car collection in his office. When I retired he gave me this one. It's not the red convertible that I wanted, but I appreciated it nonetheless. But I forgot what it is...lol. Can anyone tell me what type of car and year it is?

Paul, from Shadow of Diogenes, tagged me with this three question tag:
(Q2) Who is your favorite author ?
(Q3) Do you prefer fiction or non fiction ?
I honestly have to admit that I really don't have a favorite novel. I can say that the novel that impressed me the most when I was young was Little Women. And I always read the Nancy Drew Detective series. Also the Hardy Boys. lol.
Later in life I read every book I got my hands on....both fiction and non fiction. I think I've read every self help book ever published. When I was in school I loved philosophy.
I love to read and read lots of books now. Mostly fiction. I pick my books through friend's recommendations or if it looks interesting, I buy it. This is how I am with music too. Don't ask me who sang it or who wrote it, if it sounds good to me, that's enough.

Remember a while back I told you about my carpenter bees? Well, the "bee control people", while they were up on the roof, informed me that my gutters were really gunky and should probably be cleaned out. So being the independent person I am, I thought I'd have a look. I also thought I could take a hose and swish out all that gunk myself.
