This and That

Okay, so the wifey-poo had this professional license for 15 years and didn't really need it but kept it "just in case"...because...well, you know, job security is about as reliable as a 10-day weather forecast these days.  So she FINALLY didn't renew it.  Apparently, they were quite "put out" because she received this back...


Do you think it is just me or are they a little miffed?  I didn't know they made stamps (or fonts) that big.  What they are really saying with this is from the old Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie..."I fart in your general direction"

--------------------------------------------------------------------

So then we were walking through Whole Foods the other day (which my mother calls "Whole Paycheck"...but hey...unprocessed foods apparently cost more than chemical-laden fake foods so there you go).  Anyway, I couldn't help but notice their pies:


"Forest Berry" pie?  Really?  This pie should cost like $100 because I've hiked through a lot of forests and I don't see a lot of berries growing in them.  If this weren't just a marketing ploy it would take a LOT of effort to harvest enough "forest berries" to make a pie...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

And finally, the gnomes have been trying to convince me that it would be quite funny to steal all of the rich home's security warning signs from their yards and then put them ALL on the lawn of the neighborhood dumpy-looking house. Sure, Mr. Rich House, nobody will break into your security-enabled home...but did you protect that warning sign?  Noooope....

Sure, the house is protected...but what if I steal your precious security sign?

Back in high school, a certain someone and her friends might have taken the real estate signs from around town and placed all of them in a random yard. It was great fun. I'm sure it was a huge pain in the ass for the realtors.

I am Woody - Ha! Sounds like a confession to me. Officer Billy-Bob has been waiting all these years for that ;)... But seriously, I like it! I tried to sell my first house "For Sale By Owner" and somebody saw one of the realty people stealing my signs! Even last March we had an estate sale and a realty company replaced my sign with theirs (they threw my sign into a ditch back away). Later I took their sign and pitched it into these blackberry bushes in retaliation. About a week after that I noticed that somebody had gone to the trouble to fetch it which couldn't have been easy. Made me smile...

You could really have some fun since it's election time and lots of folks have signs out. Hee Hee. I can hear your gears grinding.

That's funny, I like the idea of taking all the home security signs. Smart idea. I might suggest that sometime or I could even be tempted ;-)

The Guy - Yep...Harmless prankish fun...
