Rapid Fire Blogging

OK, I'm gonna start and you better be able to keep up. Because all you gotta do is read it - I had to live it!

This last week and a half have been extremely hectic having a wedding, out-of-towners to show the sights to and a short road trip to South Dakota with my daughter. So I'm gonna start doing a blog a day until I'm caught up.

But first, a few things that don't deserve their own blogs:

The toilet fiasco.

My old jet-powered toilet was having handle issues, you needed to push it two or three times to make it flush. And we were going to have about 40 people at our wedding. So a touchy flusher was not conducive to happy attendees. I asked Rick to take a look at it. Something was wearing out and the odd nature of the toilet didn't lend to the "repair" idea. So he decided to install new guts and make it a regular toilet. It took about 2 - 3 minutes to flush, apparently the bowl was built with more horizontal flow. When we put the jet powered guts back it wouldn't work even as good as it had. A new toilet was in order. We did some studying and found a great flusher. My original plan.

Jalapeno hot dogs with cream cheese and brown mustard - yummy!

Water pressure

Not something you think about but when you live with lousy water pressure for years then in minutes have normal water pressure it's life changing. Yep

Ther ya go. Just a few things I had to get offa my chest. Now on with the blog explosion.

Okay, something about jalapeno hot dogs with cream cheese and mustard following a toilet story... That's just weird.

I guess that's why I married you...

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
