A Little Mystery to Figure Out, Baby


This little darlin' gives me something to talk about. A little mystery to figure out. 


They never mentioned the need for wee tweezers, or as JC recommends using in a pinch: two quarters. The screws are just that hard to tighten! The gadget is right up my alley though. It reminds me of "Transformers" before they made the second movie. My favorite Transformer is Bumblebee; those blue headlamps are ugly though. My second is Optimus Prime. He sounds smarter than he really is though. Okay, I like The Twins too. 


The first pair of my arth-ree-tus gloves came today. Oh, yea! They smell, make my eyes burn, and my skin itch, so JC washed and hung them out to dry, otherwise I'd have them on right now. They either feel good or they're a sly placebo. I'll keep you posted as to their effectiveness. 


Until then, here's a peek-in-the-box. I'm watching Clint Eastwood lay down some terribly bad acting in Gran Torino. He pretends to be gruff and mean and racist in real life too, and succeeds at being bad at that too. I'm on to you Eastwood. 

And, by the way . . . Does anyone have a clue why a letter and a postcard came back, for no apparent reason I can see?



I think someone at the post office is just messing with me. Could be they just want me to come in and raise a little hell to heat up their summer, huh? 

Happy mail to you. Until we write again . . .

  1. Let me see because someone cant read ?I get my neighbors mail all the time and I put it back in their box , I think some carriers get in such a hurry they don't know what they are doing since they have to be back by a certain time or they get in trouble with their supervisor . this may be the case maybe not . great post . btw always wash everything you are going to wear before you wear it . I will explain a reason in next pc or letter okay ? you be well and stay well .

    1. Really? All mail is scanned though. And isn't it presorted for the carrier? How can anyone confuse the return address with the recipient's address? But what do I know? Maybe you are right.

      We have gotten mail as late as 8 PM as recently as last year. If Amazon can get it so right why can't the USPS? Then again perhaps Amazon will teach them how since they're putting the UPS to work.

      I have to wash everything before wearing because of the sizing used in fabrics. I have to try some things on first before I buy. No one wants their goods washed and then tried. LOL. What happened to plain old wholesome, healthy cotton? The world is killing itself with all the chemicals they play with. *sigh* I'd like you read your opinion though. :)

      Be well.

  2. Did you mean to blur your address rather than Patty Davidson's ? Just curious...
    And yes, the PO is clearly hoping you'll drop in for a chit-chat ;-)

    1. I did. Thanks. :) Someone posted my home address without thinking once upon a time, and a few months back, someone threw a pair of boxers worth of human feces against our house. They tossed the shitty shorts behind our a/c unit. The police investigated and put us on their watch list.

      I felt so bad for JC. He looked so defeated when he showed me the foul work. He believed I'd offended a pen friend who retaliated. I tried to convince him that my pen friends are great people wo would never stoop to slinging mud or shit. Our HOA hired an extra patrol just in case.

      LOL. No, never raise hell at the post office. They coined the term "going postal," remember? :D

  3. To some of the other ladies on your blog (patty/phone) I have finally gotten out of my writing funk (or so Mrs. Cade has informed me) :). If you would like to correspond again please let me know. Mrs. C - did you get the PCs I sent whilst on Vacation? I believe I sent 4+ at least. I managed around 5 per day to my list I picked for the trip.

    1. Three came my way. They're in the future post lineup. Stay tuned. The arthree-tis gloves work, or they're equipped with that placebo magic. :) I wrote a note last night; open finger gloves are all right, all right, all right! Cool postcards, btw. Thanks.

      Wait. Where'd you go last Sunday? :)
