a random list of things

  • There is a car wreath (a car that has a wreath on the front) that I see frequently on my way home. As a rule, I think car wreaths are tacky, but they still make me smile.
  • On Thanksgiving day, I took a morning walk and saw a couple getting ready to go somewhere on their motorcycle. They had their chihuahua ready to ride in a little jacket and pink goggles. Not kidding.
  • I laughed til I cried a few times over Thanksgiving and it was great.
  • My grandmother can't remember how to say "latte." I made my sister one while she was visiting and Mimi asked her how she liked the "lotta." Laura had no idea what she was talking about and I had to translate.
  • I asked Mimi for WD40 the other day to fix the squeaky door and she said she didn't have any, but she did have some 409. I explained what I needed it for and that 409 wasn't going to work. She then remembered what WD40 was and found me some.
  • Even though I write down funny things about Mimi, I do think it's amazing that she still does everything she does at 87.
  • I called Pep Boys last week to get a rebate situation worked out and got a guy that had some sort of British accent! He was super kind and called me "madam." I loved it.
  • Rachael is probably the reason I make lists like these on my blog.

Yay! I love lists, always have.
I saw a car that, instead of a wreath, had antlers on the front! Funny people. And hick town.
