Rose & The Whirlpool 

I been really enjoying the water at the health club more and more lately, no one really ever had goes into the pool area all but the same usual faces, there’s this nice older lady who takes auqa aerobics, soon as it’s over she heads over to the tub, says it relaxes her aches and pains away, her name Rose she likes to talk about her grandchildren a lot, I like hearing the stories and the passion she has in telling them, sometimes cool people can be found in the last place you’d ever think to find them…

Doppelgangers & Chicken Tenders 

I went out for lunch on the other side of town today, I’d been wondering what the food was like at Reggie’s for a while now, for what it was worth it was great, I got some chicken tenders, but I can’t get over the waitress, she was kind as any waitress would be, I just cant get over how much she looked like… well it matters not any names but the resemblance was almost scary, so much so I couldn’t order from shock value alone lol, I kinda feel bad for her in a way, you know how sometimes they say you feel someone’s eyes on you, I can only imagine she felt mine…

When she left after bringing the food all the things I wanted to tell her twin came rushing in, all the wanting for longer than I can remember to see her were fresh again, but as fast as they came they were gone again when she brought the bill, the likelihood of ever seeing her twin and saying all those things are nonexistent, and for what it’s worth I’m ok with that, I left a tip and walked out, I figure as I leave all that behind at the restaurant, I’m able to leave all those memories too, now I can head off to greener pastures…

1 Year Anniversary 

The powers that be have informed I have officially been blogging for one year now, and while I know I don’t do the awards all that much, and I don’t participate in any of the “popular” things your favorite bloggers may do, for this one I feel it needs attention, not for me but for each and every person who has ever visited…

I can’t stress enough how thankful I am for you all, more times than I can remember I wanted to stop, life this time last year was not a happy time and my early posts reflected it, looking back at how dark things were in the beginning I can see how no one would have wanted to follow what I had going, how could I expect them too when I really didn’t wanna follow myself all that much, then one day everything changed granted things were still dark but I figured if I push positivity it’s bound to come back, you get what you give rite?

Sure enough it did, all the support I gave to the community was given back to me, the more I stayed away from the darkness the brighter my horizons got, of course there were and will always be stumbles along the way I guess but that’s life, more than anything I can say with certainty all that once was then is no longer and I’m so very thankful, and it’s owed to wonderful you…

The more likes and followers I received, the more comfortable I felt just being myself, ultimately leading me to moving passed and pushing forward far beyond the limitations that were on myself by the hands of others, I’ve found not only myself but freedom thru it all and that’s worth more than anything I think…

Yep so here’s to another year of randomness with a few new surprises sprinkled in along the way, thanks to wonderful you for making it a memory worth remembering, may your journey be equally if not more amazing as well…

Christian Care II

Today I went too Christian Care it’s a center where all the churches from the surrounding areas get together and have a sorta makeshift garage sale, they open only twice a month I think, I had never been before but I heard the prices were nice so I thought I’d see what they had going on… 

They had the usually stuff shoes, shirts, even some Halloween costumes, but in this back room area where they kept the appliances and dinnerware there they were in all there glory…

Yep there had to be no less than fifty different ones, all in such great condition my jaw dropped, I’m not too sure what it is about this series that I like so much, I reviewed one as a joke but in doing it I realized I really did enjoy the story, after my second review I knew I was hooked jokes on me I guess lol…

What a price!!!! Not even Goodwill is this generous, they do six paperback for a dollar and they definitely don’t have as much variety, I’ll show a few more individual titles to really show how good of condition they were in, just another another day in the life of a thrift shopper, another reason I try to visit as many places as possible, a gold mine can always be there hidden somewhere…

DIY Slime

Seems it’s all the rage these days, supplies won’t stay on the shelves they say, well if you can’t best them join them I guess…

What You Need:

What You Do:

  1. In one bowl mix 1 oz. glue (about ÂĽ of the glue bottle) and ÂĽ cup water. If you want colored slime, add food coloring to the glue and water mixture. 
  2. Add ÂĽ cup of Sodium Tetraborate (Borax) Solution to the glue and water mixture and stir slowly.
  3. The slime will begin to form immediately. Lift some of the solution with the stir stick and observe how the consistency has changed from Step 1.
  4. Stir as much as you can, then dig in and knead it with your hands until it gets less sticky. This is a messy experience but is necessary because it allows the two compounds to bond completely. 

Collecting Vinyl

Getting into vinyl was really just a natural extension of what I already had going as a collector, I’ll be the first to say I understand if it seems unorthodox, the idea of going thru the hassel of searching for these ancient relics if at the end they are far more expensive and fragile then they’re counterparts isn’t all that attractive really, but there’s something about the day I took my first 45 home and played I was hooked…
I joined the following group last year sometime, from going to the hauls and meetups they have, it broadened my horizons as a fan a lot, the following video is a lovely news report on the group I joined and vinyl collecting in general as a whole in my area, I hope you enjoy…  

Scary Stories 3 More Tales To Chill Your Bones: The Red Spot…

Who out there remembers these??? Took a look and came across one of my old favorites, you be the judge if it chills your bones or not lol…

While Ruth slept, a spider crawled across her face, stayed there for a minute, then went away.

“What is this red spot on my cheek?” she asked her mother the next morning.
“Looks like a spider bite.” her mother said. “It’ll go away, just don’t scratch it.”
Soon the spot grew into a red boil. “Look at it now,” Ruth said, “It’s getting bigger.”
“That sometimes happens.” her mother said. “It’s coming to a head.”
In a few days the boil was even larger.”Look at it now.” Ruth said. “It hurts and it’s ugly.”
“We’ll have a doctor look at it, maybe it’s infected.” her mother said. But the doctor couldn’t see her until the next day.
That night Ruth took a bath. As she soaked herself, the boil burst. Out poured a swarm of spiders from the eggs the mother laid in her cheek.
