Tool box? I have a tool bin.

OK. I had good intentions. What I usually do with old toothbrushes is keep them in a small glass container, underneath my bathroom sink. That way I can use them for scrubbing out the black gunk in my bathroom sink drain. It's just gross. Then I shake the toothbrush in the sink and wipe the black gunk up with a tissue or a paper towel. And then I will heat up some water in my tea kettle and pour that down the drain.This time, though, the drain grabbed my toothbrush. I tried various ways to get hold of the toothbrush but it wouldn't come out. Good news - it wasn't clogging the sink. Water was still flowing down the drain. I let the toothbrush stay there for a couple of days. OK....I needed to get this toothbrush out. I was quiet and let good thoughts into my head. I'm no plumber but there should be a way to get it out without spending an arm and a leg on a plumber.  Think what Carl would do...think what I would do back when I was flying. I was pretty sure I had some needl…

These trying times.....these make me laugh...and I hope you do, too!

Marmalade Mommas and some funnies....

Do you need a thoughtful, creative (and relatively inexpensive) gift?One of my friends turned me onto the Alameda Fruit Company (Marmalade Mommas) maybe 3 years ago?  They sell homemade jams and marmalade made with fresh fruit. Click on the link above and enjoy the ride! They live in Alameda, and you can order online.  I bought 8 jars of lemon marmalade just this week for $12 each.  Here are some funnies from Betty:

A couple of dear friends called me and the husband asked if I had I seen this movie? My answer was no...and he dropped the DVD at my front door.
'Maiden' Documentary Tracks All-Female Crew Who 'Sailed .
I was completely captivated by it.

He asked if Carl, my late husband (and yacht designer), had ever been on the Whitbred Race and I said NO! I would have remembered that, for sure. This was a race around the world! 
I wondered out loud if Carl had been part of a team who would have been designing boat like this....but I think I would have remembered that as well. 
These women had little, if any experience, on boats. But, boy, I mean the 'ladies' they found, women who had little or no experience, and those that knew how to sail (like 3 of them) but never even thought an all-female crew could be put together and pull out a win...was exceptional. Yes, they worked hard to get themselves and the boat in shape. 
IMHO girls, chicks, ga…

More funnies.....they keep on coming!

Thank you Betty, again!

Thank you, Betty. I think we all have some type of weird sense of humor! 











Have a fun weekend! Be safe, wear a mask, and 😊!

How about a few chuckles?

Thanks to my friend, Betty.....






It's nice to laugh out loud...even if I'm by myself! These show life as is was...and maybe will hopefully be sometime soon!
