Debbie's first blog

My husband drove me 42 miles for lunch and all I got was this lousy sammich.

Then he took me home and made me stand on the balcony during a tornado warning so I could see the lightening over the lake.

Just another risky day in the life of Debbie Woods ... housewife.

Politics for toddlers

"What IS John McCain doing?" Kelli ... if you don't blog it ... I will. The story must be told!

10 Items or less... (Part 2)

10 Items or less that are just wrong and should be dealt with appropriately ...

- Every human being is allowed a minimum of 18 inches of clear "air space" around them. Violate the space? You get sprayed with "Pam" so you can just sliiiiiiiiiiide away.
- Stand at the "Red Box" for more than 5 minutes and get towed. No, not your car. You.
- Random dreams. Not so good. Dreams should be like going to the movies. You look at the marquis of choices, make your selection, have your dream.
- Pepsi means Pepsi and Coke means Coke. No, Pepsi is not okay. I ordered Coke. You carry 50 kinds of wine why can't you carry 2 kinds of cola?
- Mr Policeman, if you are going to take my picture at stop lights I should be able to take your picture at donut shops.
- You want to "save a tree?" Stop telling me to recycle my gum wrapper and go after the guy who fills my mail box with 50 pages of junk mail every day. Holy cow. Why hasn't Al Gore noticed this?
- Why should I have to PAY CostCo or Sams to shop there? Why should I give them my money to take my money? Am I the only person that thinks this is odd?
- Toll Roads = Evil. You KNOW we've paid them off at least 20 times and yet we keep paying and paying and paying ...
- Okay, tipping makes me angry. I do it because I feel sorry for the poor lady trying to raise 3 kids on minimum wage. BUT ... why can't restaurants pay their employees like most every other company does? Who told them it was alright to stiff their workers because, "Hey, let's let the customer pay them. Oh, and only offer one kind of cola too." What if the airlines did this? We'd be tipping the pilots based upon the delay (or occasional lack thereof) and how smooth the ride was. That means their families would starve. What if we treated surgeons this way? "Hey, Doc. The smaller the scar the more I'm paying you. So let's be careful down there, huh?"
- Gas stations that change prices 3 times each day. I don't think I need to say anymore about this one.

10 Items or less...

10 Items or less that are so fine they should never be messed with ...

- Biscuits and gravy
- Curvy roads with lots of trees
- Receiving a spontaneous e-mail for no purpose other than to tell you that you are cared about (NOT EVER a "forward)
- Neighbors that will linger in the hallway for friendly conversation
- A dream that you are disappointed about waking up in the middle of and actually being able to go back to sleep and re-enter it
- Sunshine, blue sky, gentle breeze and temps perfect for a hoodie
- Coke with fizz so serious that it actually burns on the first swallow
- A friend who comes looking for you
- Watching an entire season of "Rocky and Bullwinkle" without interruption
- Actually knowing the answer

Click The Link...

My son-in-law is better than your son-in-law. (If you have one.) He takes good care of my daughter and my granddaughter. Not only that but I happen to love him just because of the guy he is.

But I digress.

Joe is on staff at the 1st E-Free Church of West County ... or something like that. He's a tech guy. And he mentioned to me recently that my little blog ... the one you are reading right now ... is number 10 on the top referral sites for his church web site. We both thought that was funny. Then it occurred to me ... "WHAT THE ... NUMBER 10? Why just number 10? I want the whole enchilada!"

So would you do me a favor. It's free. On the right you will see a link to my "My daughter Kelli's church web site." It's listed under "Web sites I hang out at." Would you please click that link. Better yet, would you please click that link on every computer you own. Just for the next week. You see, I want good old Joe to check his stats and find our that my blog is now ... NUMBER ONE! I want him to totally be IN AWE OF ME! I want ... I want ... I want him to buy me dinner!!!!

Okay, that might be asking a bit too much. But do me a favor. Click the link. Pretty please? I'd really appreciate the help. :) And it isn't really cheating. It's just ... creative clickery.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Stupid Picture Chronicles #19

Oh? Really? I hadn't noticed anything tricky about it.
