Goodbye, So Long, Farewell

with 16 comments

Last night I was eating watermelon and lying under the picnic table watching the television that I mounted under there so I could lay under the picnic table and eat watermelon. A commercial came on telling me how much money I could get for simply sending them my unwanted gold, “Watches, chains, rings, broken jewelry and dental scrapes.”


This commercial really toyed with my emotions. I felt pulled in two completely different directions.


One – I’ve been smacking around the elderly for years to get their dental scrapes. Now, finally I have a way to get money for what I just kept in a jar on my mantle. People would come by the roost and say, “Wow, what’s this?” To which I’d happily reply, “That’s a jar full of dental scrap that I’ve been collecting over the years. You remember Mrs. Isley down the street? That’s her back molar right there.”


Two – My heart started to hurt. I know people talk about the grass being greener on the other side and how it’s bad to always want what you haven’t got, but seriously, somewhere out there is a woman with a solid gold mouth. I for one want her!


I’m not kidding, what is dental scrap?


Tonight was my 300th blog. Whoopee! It seemed like a good place to stop.


I want to thank all the wonderful people that stopped by and chatted with me, who left awesome comments and/or their point of view. I enjoyed reading your blogs as well and I am truly grateful to have been added to someone’s blogroll. It’s soooo 2000, but making it on someone’s blogroll is like winning a mini-Oscar, (more like a Tony) but it’s still awesome.


Everyone who was a regular and was constantly witty and incorrigible has made a permanent impression in my life. I had a wonderful time!


Thank you, thank you, thank you for EVERYTHING!


I will come and visit again, (OK Claire?).
