I Got Water

When Shelby was little, she would sometimes come to Mom and Dad’s for the weekend.

I always tried to be there because she was just so darn cute and so much fun!!!  Molly & Steve were usually there and we had lots of laughs with that little fella.

Me & Shelby2

One time I remember we were going to a Gospel concert.  I’m not sure what concert but Shelby was along for the fun.

On the way, we stopped for supper at Frisch’s.  Shelby just LOVED the Big Boy that stood out in front of the restaurant.

Marti did too at one time but that’s a story for a different day.

If she doesn’t kill me dead.

Which she probably will.

And that makes this my Farewell Post.

Thanks for the memories.

Anywho, after Unkie let Shelby talk to the Big Boy, we went inside and ordered our food.

When the waitress brought our drinks, she gave me a chocolate shake.

She gave Dad a chocolate shake.

She gave Mom a chocolate shake.

Shelby’s drink was in a child’s cup with a lid and that precious girl took a big ole drink.

Her eyes got big.

She turned to Mom and said……….

“I got water”

Bless her little heart!!!!

That baby watched all of us be presented with chocolate shakes and Mom had gotten her WATER!!!

She didn’t pitch a fit but I will never forget the look of disappointment on her little face.

So when she comes to stay the weekend with me, she gets whatever she wants!!

I thought of poor little Shelby today when I went to Wendy’s for lunch.

I’ve been trying to eat better these days so I ordered a small water.

Now, for some strange and odd reason, Wendy’s has decided that it would be great fun to have ONE machine dispense about 172 flavors of drink.

I don’t know why they did this but it gets on my ever-lovin’ last nerve!

For one reason, when the dude in front of you finishes getting his drink and you stick your cup in the machine, whatever sugary yuck he was getting now is dripping on YOUR hand!


I don’t want someone else’s drip on me!

So today I remembered to let it drip a minute before sticking my hand in there.

Smart thinkin’.

When it appeared we were drip-free, I put a little bit of ice in my cup and selected “Water”.

And, sure enough, water came out.

But why was it reddish?

Dump that out.

Try again.

A little ice.


Now it’s pinkish.

Okay, so not only do these machines drip on you but you also get whatever gross drink the dude before you selected that’s still left in the hose.

I don’t even what to think about what all else is up in that hose!!

Next time I’ll be as smart as the Mr. and bring my own drink!!

Or just get a Frosty. 🙂




Skinheads, Automatic Doors and Summer in a Bowl

It was hot yesterday.

I mean H-O-T!

So I took Taj to the Salon.

Actually I took him to his vet’s office because they groom dogs there but since it costs so bloomin’ much, I feel better to think of it as a Salon.

Of course, he got the usual……..bath, haircut, hiney shave & nails trimmed.

Now, I don’t know if it was because of the heat or what, but that little groomer girl really, REALLY cut his hair short this time.

Like, REALLY short.

Here’s a picture of my little skinhead that I took last night……


Actually he’s still got a hairy head. It’s his body that’s skinned but I don’t think the term “skinbody” is an actual word.

And that not really skin.  His undercoat is just really light.

But with his poofy head and tail, he looks like a little lion.

Actually he looks like a BIG-HEADED lion!!!

I wish I had a face picture to show you.

Imagine his little spindly chicken legs holding up a body with a ginormous head!!!

Quite hysterical but don’t tell him I was laughing at him.

I don’t want to hurt his little feelings.

So at lunch today I had to run some errands.

Actually it was just the one errand to Rite Aid but by the time I got from downtown to Rite Aid on the east side I had eaten up a bunch of my lunch hour.

And I would much rather eat something good at lunch than eat time.

Gives me heartburn.

I don’t know if any of you have been to the Rite Aid on the east side of Frankfort but let me tell you, it’s like going back to the 1950’s.

At least I imagine it is because I wasn’t even thought of in the 50’s.

The first time I ever went there, I just about busted my nose walking in.

I go be-bopping up to the door and right before hitting the glass, I realized the doors are not automatic.

Oh no they are not!!

You have to manually pull those doors open.

Pull them open!


People, we are in the year of our Lord 2013 and this Rite Aid has manual doors!!



I may have to switch to CVS.

It’s very disturbing.

So after my whirlwind trip to the Rite Aid of the past, I stopped at Wendy’s to get me and the Mr. some lunch.

The Mr. likes the chili but those beans look just like cockroaches so I don’t go near it!!

This was my lunch:


If you’ve not gotten the Berry Almond Chicken Salad at Wendy’s before, RUN to get one!!

It’s awesome!!

It comes with a fat-free raspberry vinaigrette that is so yummy I could just drink it!

I’m sure that you, like me, are a little in shock right now.

Did I, Mish, really just give a rave review for a SALAD?????


Yes I did!

Will wonders never cease!!  🙂
