When we were waiting in Flagstaff airport waiting to find out if our flight would be cancelled we sat down in the little coffee place and had a bagel and coffee. A woman who just looked annoying sat down at the counter and ordered a latte. The server went to the machine to make it for her.

WomanAtCounter: Can I have that made with Whole Milk?

GirlMakingCoffee: We only have 2% and skim

WomanAtCounter: Oh.  Can you make it with half & half?

GirlMakingCoffee: We only have 2% and skim


This will probably only be funny to people who have worked in restaurants or retail.


You know, people in Toledo get very upset because dandelions show up all over the place. Can you imagine this?



When I was in Port Charlotte Florida last year I was walking on an amazing beach. The whole gang was there to watch sunset. It was beautiful and warm and very very windy. My hair was whipping around my head and smacking me in the face. I asked my nieces and they didn’t have a hair band. I asked my sister and she didn’t have one. I walked away and a few seconds later a hair band washed up on the beach in front of my sister. The ocean gave her what she had been looking for. Now whenever I see a hair band on the ground I think of my sister. 

Last night I slept from about 4:00 am to 9:00 am with a couple of wake ups. I am so very sleepy and I have one of those not enough sleep headaches.

It was a very good vacation.

  1. Damn I missed you! I hate it when you’re gone not that I needed anything just needed to know you were near. Can I have your ez sweetz. I can’t stand using other stuff it all has flavor and spoils the taste of my tea. Friday Sat and Sun would be good for Chicago. 

  2. Good to have you back I am glad you had a good time and I bet you are tired you had sort of a whirlwind time for sure

  3. At least you came back to decent weather here in Ohio. In case you were wondering, the friend request you got on Facebook was from me, Brian.

  4. @Zoz36 – DOH!!  I totally would have accepted had I know. Let me go find you again.

  5. glad you had a good time.

  6. Glad your horn safe!

  7. I bet that server wanted to slap that woman. That must be so frustrating annoying.Ouch – random cactus in the lawn would be a much bigger pain in the neck than the pretty yellow flowers.I’m hoping that as I type you are having a wonderful restful night and that your headache will be gone and your guts will be calm when you wake incredibly rested and refreshed.

  8. Your vacation looks and sounds amazing.  The random cactus/aka Arizona dandelions was like a wow moment for me.  Never thought of that being a possibility.  I’ll bet the woman at the counter has called 911 because her power was out!!!Glad you are home…it’s hell recovering, isn’t it.  I was gone 5 days to Ohio (which was chilly by the way) and am recovering.

  9. @Ninasusan – As soon as you left the temps went up. 🙂

  10. @Ninasusan – @skanickadee – I am booking the same hotel as two years ago for May 18/19/20. I may take back the 20th depending on my sister and drive home on Sunday. But we enjoy those sister bonding times, so I may not and just take two days off work.

  11. Okay…I can’t remember what the name of the hotel is…I will book for the 18th and 19th.  I have to work Friday but will attempt an early escape..I probably won’t get there until 7 or 8 pm.  I’ll leave Sunday early.YAY YAY YAY

  12. @Ninasusan – Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Tinley Park, IL18315 South Lagrange Road , Tinley Park, IL 60487 | 708-560-9300

  13. @tracy – 10-4 – thank you 

  14. @tracy – @Ninasusan – Sounds amazing and wonderful! I am beyond excited!

  15. Oooo, too short and too soon.Welcome back, anyway 🙂
