Random Thoughts Gladys Style

My Nanny would have been 99 years old this week. Isn't she beautiful?

Why did people stop taking trains? Have you ever taken a train? I love it. I mean someone else drives while you drink.

Why is it when I come to the beach where it should be warm and sunny it turns cold and grey, yet back in Moaningtana it's sunny and warm? Am I responsible for the gloom? Like Pig Pen in the Peanuts cartoon it follows me?

We are picking up our toys and moving from one state park to another today because we are having to piecemeal our stay. What is a piece meal? Is it meal made from pieces? Pieces of what?

Which means that we will pull into a new park and a new slot and have 43,000 people come over and critique our execution of this act. Why is it people who have lived next door to you for 70 years and have never looked at you much lest spoken to you will as soon you buy an RV and enter an RV park will rush over to speak to you.

"Hello there, my name is George. Where you from?"

"George, you are my neighbor at home. We have been neighbors for 70 years. Remember me. I'm the one you called the cops because my dogs were peeing on your rose bushes."

Go over and Visit Mrs. 4444 over at Half Past Kissin Time for more Friday Fragments.

After we kick his butt, let's pee on his rose bushes.

That's odd the sun don't shine when you go to the beach. As I hear it, there are lots of "sunny beaches" in California. (But then my hearing ain't what it was.)

Train conductors, if you have met one, seem a lot like carnies.
