SEPT 23  2014
MY PILL BOX TELLS ME IT IS TUESDAY..  
IT BETTER BE BECAUSE IF IT IS THURSDAY AND I AM 2 DAYS BEHIND IN PILLS  IT COULD BE A VERY LIVELY  DAY . 

USUALLY I WAIT TIL I AM DRIVING A 53 FOOT LONG HORSE TRAILER IN THE MIDDLE OF BOSTON TRAFFIC TO TELL SOMEONE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT THAT I AM ON  DILANTIN .FOR SEIZURES  
IT HAS WORKED BEAUTIFULLY FOR 40 YEARS--  THE ONLY TIME I HAD A PROBLEM WAS VERY EARLY IN THE  PROCESS WHEN I FIGURED I DID NOT NEED  THEM..  2 DAYS OF NO PILLS AND I WAS IN BIG TROUBLE...!!     GOD BLESS EDUCATION AND  RESEARCH !!

IT CAUSED ME TO THINK OF ALOT OF THINGS I NEVER HAD TO CONSIDER...
AIRLINE'S FREQUENTLY LOST LUGGAGE-- CAMPING TRIP BY CANOE( WHITE WATER DOWN THE COLORADO RIVER) ... DISTANCE TO NEAREST PHARMACY.... AND OF LATE....  AN INCREDIBLY  MATURE MEMORY..  

I AM NEVER OFFENDED IF SOMEONE ASKS ME IF I HAVE TAKEN MY PILLS TODAY.  WHEN THEY DO , THERE IS A SPLIT SECOND WHERE I  TAKE INVENTORY OF MY THOUGHT PROCESS.  
*******
OTHER THAN THAT...... ANY OTHER PROBLEMS THAT TODAY BRINGS  WILL NOT BE CAUSED BY THAT.
***** 
TUESDAY-- NO SHEILA---  I DON'T  MEAN TO BE UNKIND... WELL ALMOST.... BUT I DID GRIN A BIT WHEN SOMEONE TOLD ME  IT WAS SUPPOSED TO RAIN FOR THE NEXT 10 DAYS IN VERO BEACH-- THUNDERSTORMS-- 

WELL I BET THEY ARE JUST TIDDLEY ONES.. NOT LIIKE THE REAL THUNDER WE HAD AT THE END OF   OVER THE RAINBOW   DURING DOG FEST...
THAT VIDEO IS WORTH SEEING... THE TIMING OF THAT  BOOM COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER.
 BIRDS FLY OVER THE RAINBOW WHY OH WHY CAN'T I?  
BANG !
WHY DID YOU ASK....I WILL TELL YOU  ...BECAUSE I DID NOT SAY YOU COULD.

LEFT ME  FEEING A BIT INFERIOR
************
THE  PRESSURE POT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY YESTERDAY-- I DID NOT PRESSURE... BUT USED IT AS A SLOW COOKER  AND LITERALLY FORGOT IT--- DURING MAIL CALL, I TRIED TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO HAVE FOR SUPPER  AND SOMEONE REMINDED ME-- THERE IT WAS ALL READY... AND BEING KEPT WARM

PERFECT ! 
 
NOW HERE IS ANOTHER MILLION DOLLAR IDEA JUST WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO DEVELOP.
    COOKING FOR THE MATURE MIND... AND PUT TOGETHER  A BUNCH OF APPLIANCES  THAT ALL SHUT OFF BEFORE YOU BURN TH E HOUSE DOWN..

UP TO NOW I HAVE HAD TO RELY ON THE  FIRE ALARM TO TELL ME WHEN DINNER WAS READY.

DON'T LAUGH--- SOMEONE WILL DO JUST THAT---
I CAN SEE THE RECIPE DIRECTIONS NOW....   

SET ALL THE INGREDIENTS ON THE COUNTER TURN OFF YOUR HEARING AID.... BEFORE TURNING ON THE BURNER.. YOU MUST NOT TURN AROUND FOR ANY REASON..

REMEMBER IT IS CALLED A BURNER FOR A GOOD REASON.
*********
THERE ARE 2 METHODS OF MATURE  COOKING...

SAS--- STAND AND STIR-   WHERE YO U MUST NOT ANSWER THE PHONE OR THE DOORBELL
OR 
VLS- VERY LOW SETTING- WHERE  YOU WILL REMEMBER IT  ONLY WHEN YOU GET HUNGRY 

************
OLD AGE IS NOT FOR THE  MEEK.
*********
I DROVE AROUND YESTERDAY WITH THE RACK ON THE BACK OF MY CAR--- AND IT DID NOT FALL OFF..  BUD SAID IT WOULD NOT... AND HE WAS RIGHT...

MAYBE I CAN MAKE IT TO SALEM TODAY-- THEY RENT SEGWAY'S THERE..  I WONDER IF ONE WOULD GO ON THT RACK-- IT HAS A RAMP FOR THTAT KIND OF THING
*****
KATI  WAS OUT YESTERDAY, AND TRACY, SHANNON AND MEGAN SURVIVED VERY NICELY.
*****
LASTLY  
MY COMPLAINT OF THE DAY
TOOTSIE ROLLS
REMEMBER MY OBSERVATON  ABOUT KITKATS AND HOW IN BRITAIN THEY SAT THEM ON THE WRAPPER CROOKED-  WHICH USED LESS PAPER...THIS SAVING WRAPPING PAPER ETC

WELL THESE TINY TOOTSIE ROLLS ARE WRAPPED WITH MUCH TOO MUCH PAPER- BUT BECAUSE OF THE  DIRECTION , THERE IS NOT QUITE ENOUGH TOEVEN PROPERLY 

 GO ROUND THE TOOTSIE...  .  BUT IF YOU SET THE TOOTSIE CROOKED AND WRAP  THERE IS MUCH TOO MUCH PAPER

BY ACTUAL MEASUREMENT THE WRAPPER IS 3" LONG AND DOES NOT GO AROUND THE TOOTSIE.  PUT IT ON  AT AN ANGLE AND  THERE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH.. ACTUALLY 3/4 INCH TOO MUCH.

THAT IS 3" = 12/4ths  SO A SAVING OF 3/4ths  IS A SAVING OF 25%

I WONDER WHAT IS   25% OF THEIR COST OF WAXED PAPER? OR MORE IMPORTANT , HOW MANY CHICKEN BRICKS COULD THEY BUY WITH THAT MONEY.

SOMEBODY OUGHT TO CALL THEM AND TELL THEM TO BUY CHICKEN BRICKS WITH THE MONEY THEY SAVE.

  1. I certainly appreciated the candy wrapping lecture today...if I remembered it correctly with my maturing mind....

  2. Tootsie rolls don't stay in their wrapper long enough around here to muse about their wrapping. They are, next to red vines, my candy obsessions. ����
