Thoughts, Tips, Sayings, and ? ? ?

Here you will find helpful hints, cute sayings, maybe a joke or two, you just never know.  Check often, as I don’t know when I will run across something that I want to post in this area.



WOW!!! How time does fly by.   I have been very busy downsizing my locations and clearance-ing out my merchandise and retiring.  I retired the end of 2012, and have since still been selling off the rest of my small remaining inventory.  Now, I am totally retired from my DAY JOB.   But, now, I want to concentrate on website sales.  So, please visit my sites, and, if there is ANYTHING I can help you with, or if you want to place an order, please contact me through my e-mail, which is     I absolutely cannot believe it has been so long, but, a lot has been going on in my life, including kidney cancer in September of 2013.   I’m happy to report that I am doing fine, my first post-op CT scan in December 2013 was good, no evidence of any cancer cells, and my surgeon says I am “disease free” – oh, how I love those two words.  I will have to have periodical CT scans and ultrasounds for the next few years, but, that is fine with me.  I want to make sure it stays away.  Thanks to all of you that have sent me well wishes, etc., during this traumatic time of my life.

I don’t know why no one ever thought to paste a label on the toilet-tissue spindle, giving 1-2-3 directions for replacing the tissue on it. Then, everyone in the house would know what Mama knows. — Erma Bombeck


SCAVENGER HUNT! Look for these things in your life today: a smile, a hug, laughter, conversation, a favorite scent, something that comforts, and something that inspires. All players are winners and receive the present.

With Flag Day coming up in 2 days, here are some things to remember:

Our flag should always be treated with respect.

Never let it touch the ground.

Never let the sun set on it.

Always hang the flag so that the stars are on your left when you look at it.

The color red is for courage, white is for purity, and blue for loyalty.
