Have you ever heard of a valtrompia tube? This is one. It's a tube you bake fancy bread in. I'm going to make the Hawaiian Tea Bread with coconut and pineapple. Or I may try the Cream Cheese Pound Cake. Yuuuuummmmm. I'll let you know how good it is. ;-)
On our recent trip to visit our granddaughter and our new great granddaughter we went to the Microsoft store. Since my granddaughter and her hubby work there, they have a fun thing where you can get a badge made for the kids. We did this last thursday and got Miss C's ID badge. The man doing it was Spanish-speaking and we had to tell him about 4 times how to spell Miss C's last name which is Hispanic. We even went around the counter to check on the name and he still had it misspelled! I told him how to spell it—very slowly—and he changed it again. When we went back on friday it was still misspelled! We both were thinking of simply grabbing the mouse and taking over from there!!! How can you misspell a name that is so easy to spell??
Anyway, this is how it turned out. She was a little doll doing this whole procedure. He gave us 2 so I get to carry her around on my key chain all the time now.
I like to think I am the operator of the loom that weaves my future but the only foot on that treadle is the foot of fate.
I've found that the absence of fear doesn't make you brave; it's what you do in spite of being afraid. Thank you to our military, EMTs and firemen for keeping us safe while fighting the fear.
I recently went with hubby somewhere that I'd never been before. I left him and was supposed to come back and get him. I got lost on the way back home and had to call him on his cell. He asked how in the world could I get lost when there were only 2 roads to take to get back home. I told him I could get lost on a Go-Cart track! I truly get lost a lot but I eventually find my way home.
The closest some people will ever come to a brainstorm is a light drizzle. Please don't take that as a criticism of the person in the above paragraph! I'm truly very intelligent, just challenged by directions. :-)
