George Jetson wasn’t rude….

OK, I don't have a cell phone so maybe I don't understand....
But if I was to start my life all over again, I would become a cell phone police.
The other day while traveling on a back country road. ( You may remember the one I talked about last fall.) A car came right at me, turning away just in time. The young girl that was driving was laughing and talking on her cell and she didn't miss a beat. However, she almost gave me a heart attack and bruised my dear little car. I was just about to veer into the bushes so not to take her head on, I wonder how many people she does this to in any giving day. I could tell by her reaction that this was routine.


Then there was the time this woman with two little ones in tow was doing her grocery shopping and chatting away on that cell. She hit my heels with her cart, more then once I might add. Not a sorry or acknowledgement was to be had....

If it wasn't for her tots I might have *&%#$#*&*..


Last fall while I was doing errands down town, a young man stopped to ask me for directions. I did not have five words out of my month when I heard some music blare....he held up his finger for me to wait while he took his call. I stood there for about a minute and listen to him talk about some trivial matters before I walked away.... only to hear him say "boy that women is rude".

I think the saddest of all was when I was at Wal-mart and met a friend and neighbor whom I have not seen in a while. During our five-minute conversation, her cell rang a few times. Her husband couldn't find his way, mind you, they were both in the same store and this particular Wal-mart really is not that big. As I walked away, I laughed and wondered what did that man do before he got his cell . And secretly hoped that my donkey would hee-haw a few time around midnight, just enough to be disruptive. You see my donkey is a closer neighbor to them, than I.

I began to think I was the only one and maybe out of step with time. But then I saw a post on polkadotmoon and realized that there still are some people like me who believe in manners and courteous.

And remembers that George Jetson wasn't rude....

Happy Spring.....





after a long dank winter I have been working on

some party things...

Above is just one of the party invitations that I have done.


Just imagine a candy colored sleepover with a midnight buffet candy table…
A colorful polka dotted sheet would work as a tablecloth….
A cupcake tower, boxed chocolates with the guest names on them and a tray of beautiful vegetables.
Yes, I said vegetables, or bunny candy as we call it in our house…
When my kids had sleepovers, the bowl that I would always find empty was the one holding
the cherry tomatoes….




Or how about a fairy's garden party....


would it not be fun to have these little flowers growing in your back yard???
