SHANON-- AND SEVERAL OTHERS- HAVE TOLD ME THE WONDERS OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
SO I BOUGHT 2 BOTTLES--- I TRIED DRINKING A BIT AS SHE TOLD ME TO-- AND I CAN NOT SAY IT WAS EASY TO SWALLOW-- BUT I TRIED-- THE REPORTS OF IT'S WONDERS WERE SPECTACULAR.. BUT I CAN'T DRINK IT.... MAYBE ON A SALAD... BUT RAW... I CANNOT DO..
THEN SOMEONE SAW MY 2 BOTTLES AND SUGGESTED IT FOR A SPOT ON BAILEY'S FOOT.. BECAUSE THAY HAD TRIED IT ON A HOT SPOT ON THEIR DOG AND IT WAS GONE THE NEXT DAY.
OK....I CAN'T DRINK IT.. BUT MAYBE I CAN SMEAR IT ON-- I HAVE A COUPLE ITCHY SPOTS THAT JUST LAST FOREVER.... WHY NOT... THE ENTIRE MEDICAL PROFESSION IN MASSACHUSETTS HAS GIVEN UP ON ... THE ITCH... SO WHY NOT WHATEVER CURED HER DOG.... AFTERE ALL IT SAYS NATURAL VINEGAR...( SO I HAVE BEEN COOKING EITH UNNATURAL VINEGAR???)
AS I WAS SMEARING IT ON, I THOUGHT I AM GOIMG TO SMELL LIKE SALAD ALL DAY.
THAT TRIGGERED "SALAD DAYS" A VERY POPULAR BRITISH MUSICAL BACK IN THE 1950'S.
IF YOU GOOGLE IT BE SURE TO INCLUDE THAT IT IS THE SALAD DAYS MUSICAL...
THE SYNOPSIS IS ( CUTTING AND PASTING)
Jane and Timothy Dawes meet in a park, soon after their graduation, to plan their lives. They agree to get married, and do so in secret, but Timothy's parents have urged him to ask his various influential uncles—a Minister, a Foreign Office official, a General, a scientist—to find him suitable employment. He and Jane, however, decide that he must take the first job that he is offered. A passing tramp offers them £7 a week to look after his mobile piano for a month, and, upon accepting, they discover that when the piano plays it gives everyone within earshot an irresistible desire to dance!
After attempts by the Minister of Pleasure and Pastime (Timothy's Ministerial uncle) to ban the disruptive music, the piano vanishes, and Timothy enlists his scientific Uncle Zed to take them in his flying saucer to retrieve it. When it is found, the tramp reappears to tell them that their month is up and the piano must be passed on to another couple. He also reveals that he is a hitherto unknown uncle of Timothy (whose parents had referred to "the one we don't mention"). Timothy and Jane look forward to the future with confidence
THE BRITISH HAVE A COMICAL WAY WITH WORDS WHICH WE HAVE LOST.. "THE ONE WE DON'T MENTION" SONG IS DELIGHTFUL
I OFTEN THINK OF THAT SONG WITH VARIOUS US PRESIDENTS-- THEY SEEM TO ALWAYS HAVE A RELATIVE THEY DON'T WANT TO MENTION....--
AT ANY RATE... THIS IS GOING SOMEWHERE... JUST WAIT WAIT..
SHEILA LEFT TODAY FOR FLORIDA-- AND WE DID TRIP LIGHTLY OVER MY PLANS FOR A HOUSE....AND I ASKED IF IT ALSO TOOK INTO CONSIDERATION BRIAN'S CONCERNS---
SHE SAID HIS IDEAL IS A HOUSE THAT HE CAN LEAVE AND COME BACK AND NOT HAVE TO SHOVEL OUT 2 FEET OF SNOW.--- EVEN THO BOTH OF THEM HAVE JOBS/BUSINESSES HERE IN DANVERS MASS... THE ONLY HOUSE THEY NOW OWN IS IN FLORIDA...
LIKE THE SALAD DAYS - PLAY--- THEY NEED SOMEONE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR LOVELY "PIANO"
OK.... SO IT IS A STRETCH.....
WHICH MADE ME THINK OF GRACE LIVING IN AN APT OVER TRACY'S GARAGE..
THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE I KNOW LOOKING FOR SOME OTHER LIVING ACCOMODATION THAN WHAT THEY NOW HAVE... INCLUDING STEVE--- MEAT CUTTING STEVE...
SO NOW I WILL DESIGN A 3 CAR GARAGE --- WITH APT OVER--- CONNECTED TO THE HOUSE WITH A WALK WAY.. TO TRY AND JAR THEM LOOSE FROM THE SUNNY WEATHER IN FLORIDA..
AROUND HERE - THEY NOW CALL THESE "MOTHER IN LAW APARTMENTS" AND MOST BUILDING CODES ALLOW IT.
OH....... PROBLEM... MAYBE..... THE ADDRESS OF THOSE 5 ACRES IS IN IPSWICH, BUT THE LAND IS IN BOXFORD-- I WONDER WHICH BUILDING INSPECTOR WOULD BE INVOLVED...
?MY FRIEND THE IPSWICH BUILDING INSPECTOR???? WHO TOLD ME IN THE BUILDING OF TH E ARENA "YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE-- YOU ARE ONLY A WOMAN>" BECAUSE I DID NOT CHOOSE HIS CONTRACTOR......
I KEEP REMEMBERING THAT.....
BUD TRIED TO DISCOURAGE HER ALSO WHEN HE SAID FLORIDA DOES NOT HAVE COCKROACHES.. THEY HAVE PALMETO BUGS---
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD STILL HAVE THORNS...
I SHOULD HAVE GIVEN HER THE TAPES I HAVE OF "THE HILLS IS LONELY" -- A PRETTY AMUSING BOOK ABOUT AN ENGLISH WOMAN GOING FOR EXTENDED VACATION ON AN ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF SCOTLAND... FUNNY BOOK...
We had a very good day. Handed out every business card. We had I'm sure way over 100. The stack was at lest 3 inches thick. Many poker chips. ( I have 5 left ) If half the people show up for Sunday stew SDP might have to open the back field for parking. Lots of ??? and Mia was AWESOME.
Talked about chicken bricks, Explore, and of course you. plus so much more. When we got there the was an empty table where the venders set up so we asked if we could use it. Mia went into her down stay and Steve and I got to work.
Didn't get much out of the seminars because we we're out talking about SDP most of the day. I'd like to know how many hits SDP and Explore get over the Next couple days. It was a blast. Hope we can do it again.
Thanks Carlene for decking us out for the day, we looked fabulous. See you all next Sunday.
Steve, Michelle and Mia
