Gladys Has John C. Crapper Thoughts

It is Friday again and time for Mrs. 4444 to present her Friday Fragments. Go on go over read her fragments, link yours and have a big old fragmented party. Then go on over to Ann Again and Again for your weekly Virtual Girls Night Out. Have a drink, even if it’s just water, read some stories and partake in her game. Also link your Friday to her Friday.

This week has been a very busy week for me. What that means in layman terms is that I actually had to do something besides loll about and blog. So I am a little short on subject matter but as Mrs. 4’s would say I’m never short on words. If you don’t believe me go check out her Friday Fragments from last week. &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

This week for Theme Thursday was lunch which made me begin to reminisce. I used to get twenty-five cents for lunch. A piece of bubble gum was a penny.  A cup of ice cream was a nickel.  What the hell happened?


On that note remember when you actually bent down to pick up a penny? I actually watched a guy this week do everything to AVOID picking up a penny. I don’t know, call me Jack Benny;

but I still stop and pick them up. In fact I have a box in the back of the closet full of pennies. Oh wait maybe that’s panties.


I have been looking at a lot of houses the last couple of weeks. Many of the houses I have been in have been foreclosures and bank owned. There is one constant theme in these houses and that is that the people who left them were nine kinds of pissed off. I have seen houses missing appliances, cabinets, carpets and toilets. Now let me ask you WHO takes a toilet? Were you really THAT attached to your toilet?


Finally but not lastly it is also Happy Hour Friday over at the RX Bambi. She hosts Happy Hour Friday so go on over and tell us what makes you happy.

Here are some things that make me happy.

Dancing just to Dance

Traveling just to Travel

A day like this

Now go on and be good to one another and remember thoughts become things, think good ones.

I'm no good at the traveling just to travel. I have to have a destination and if I could cross my arms and blink myself there like Jeanie or Samantha, I would.

I still pick up a penny when I find one. I remember having a "lucky penny" thingy. It was a penny in a little metal frame that said, "if you always carry this with you, you'll never be broke." It took me years to realize that you wouldn't be broke because you still had a penny.

Well, I WAS only eight.

My husband drives me nuts collecting coins - I try and find all his hiding places but every now and again come across a new one and then I am that lady at the self service checkout putting them all in the coin slot, one by one to pay for my groceries!!

Stopping by from VGNO belatedly to say hello.

You know, I've actually stopped picking up pennies (unless they're heads up of course! I need all the good luck I can get ;-> )

I'm still making the rounds from VGNO. Thanks for being at the "party"!

You're so cute.

The only time I pick pennies up is when I'm running a penny drive :) That said, if I drop one, I always pick it up, because Suzi Orman says that not picking it up is disrespectful to the value of money and hurts your money kharma or something.

Thanks for playing FF :) Have a great week!
