Now Y'all, its been one of those days...Not a bad day, just a BAD highway Road Rage Day!! :) Now do me a favor and let me preach from the pulpit for a second... I'm warning ya, I'm in a talkin'/writin' mood so either go check out what Michaels has on sale this week or sit and stay for a spell!
I have about decided I'm gonna get out my Dylusion sprays and use them for another reason by golly! I'm gonna grab the London Blue spray, mix it with a little Crushed Grape and accent it with A LOT of Postbox RED baby! Then onto my car windows I'm writing....BE NICE WHILE YOU DRIVE or I'm gonna kick your tail feathers!! Is that polite enough? LOL! How many times a day do I mutter under my breath, "Jimbo, let it go, let it go son! It's not worth your energy!" :) It works most the time, but just like chitlin's on rice, I'm still not learning to like it!
When two lanes of traffic merge folks, why in God's Good Gravy can't we let the person trying to merge into our lane... IN! Now I'm not talking about letting two cars at a time in, that's just plain ol' ugly! I'm talking letting one go in front of you, the next car behind you allows one person to come into the lane, etc! It will make the traffic flow so much better! Now here's the sermon...People, if you are EVER in Austin, Texas and you see a Silver Sage Honda SUV let you into his lane by the gentlemanly manners his mama beat (just kiddin' Mom) into him....By God All Mighty, wave, honk, stick your hand out the sunroof or somehow acknowledge the kind gesture. PLEASE! Man, have we forgotten to do that these days! LOL! Let's freak people out and smile while we drive! At a stop light, look over at the person next to you and just grin like you won the lottery! They WILL FREAK OUT, I promise you!! They will probably call the police but it's worth a shot huh? Just sayin' ... My thought for the day!
Ok, I'm off my box...Let's get serious shall we? Now, how many of you have driven down the highway at approximately 65 miles per hour and literally run over a 10 foot aluminum ladder laying smack dab in the middle of the road during 5 o'clock traffic in Austin Traffic? uhhh huh, you guessed it, I'm sheepishly raising my hand! I didn't see the blasted thing, I didn't see it! I mean ran the thing OVER! 'bout dragged the thing for a mile, sparks a flyin', car a shutterin'! There is absolutely nothing to do except keep going as to not cause further harm to others! It finally released and the poor person behind me ran over it....Obviously, this had happened to several other folks previously as they all pulled over to the side of the road checking out their cars. I pulled over to the side of the road grabbed my cell and finally realized that 611 is NOT the non-emergency number to call! It's 311! Of course, I had to call 411 to get the information to call 311 but luckily the operator connected me! Good Lawd! I tell you I'm so thankful to be at home tonight! Safe and sound! :)
OK, if your still with me, thank you for sticking around! LOL! If you aren't, be sure to email me the specials at Michaels this week! LOL! Speaking of Michaels....Yeah, they are gonna love me for this, but when I'm on my box It's hard to get off...what in blue blazes causes a simple plastic storage container with no bells nor whistles to be $24.99! Really? It's not any bigger than a bread box!!! Like when did the plastic plantations of the world burn causing the price of plastic to soar! Even with a coupon, I hate to spend that much money on something plastic! Stars! Ahhhhh! Ok, see I'm feeling better...Let it go Jimbo! Let it go!
All that to get to the real reason for the post today. LOL! I received an amazing gift, from Fiona Jennings of Jennings644 fame on YouTube! Now this sucker was heavy and packed to the gills with treasures! I wanted to share it's contents with you! If you have a second, well actually 30 minutes to be exact, to watch the amazing things I received, here is a two part video....Thank You So Much Fi!! You are such a kind and giving person! I do not deserve such kindness, but am so grateful to you! You Rock!
Thank You All For Putting Up With My Shenanigan's! LOL!
Have an awesome evening!
