Time For Another Edition Of…

  1. Your solution to the “table encroachment” reminds me of how my brother and I used to divide the back of our family station wagon. We drew an imaginary line and demanded that the other party “stay on your side!” It rarely worked. Just sayin’

    I noticed another difference: one of you is a Mac user and the other a Windows user. I won’t guess as to which is which but . . .


    1. I have five brothers and sisters (all within 6-1/2 years of each other). We also had a station wagon when we were growing up, but there was no personal space for any of us. It was more like a cage fight when we had to drive across country (which happened 3 times). Oh…and that was Won’s idea to divide the table. He was trying to prove he didn’t encroach. Ha!! (Good observation on the laptops. I’m the Windows user). 🙂


  2. “Of course there are many others. Let’s face it, the 70s, and early 80s produced some of the BEST rock and roll music ever, don’t even try to argue with me.”……………So true. So true!!


  3. Lol! On your first entry, I bite my nails, especially this year and it does hurt when I get carried away! You worked for a MONKEY!?!?! My sister would grill you with questions…she loved the Monkey’s! I didn’t mind at all watching them but I was terrified when she watched “Dark Shadows”! I’m also a license plate “where are they from” person. It’s undeniable that you’re not from Portugal so you’re still “special”!🤗I actually love it when we go to another country and there’s no safety barriers…I’m thinking of Chichen Itza. Walking around the top I was thinking a) this is cool and I better be careful and then b) hmmm… no lawyers? I use the metric system when making jewelry…I still get confused! We have a new bakery in lil ole Cumming, GA (who doesn’t love living in a town with that name😳 complete with a Siemens water tower and a Beaver Toyota…I do not lie!) back to the bakery, it’s almost like being in Jersey again…yum bakeries! My family all have control of the chop sticks. Our daughter lived in Japan for 5 years and her fiancé is Japanese. My son and hubby are just good at it. I’m trying to fake it till I make it! It was good music right? Real voices, real instrument playing! I feel like there hasn’t been any new music this year…understandable though. Driving in my Mini windows open, on back country roads music blaring makes you feel “normal” for a while. It’s funny how that one simple act has been therapeutic since we got behind the wheel as teenagers. Omg…Alexa’s list is sounding like Pandora’s Box! Have you seen the new Match.com adds? The devil is dating 2020. Ryan Reynolds production company “Maximum Effort” produced them. And I quote, “it’s one of the things that has accurately summed up how everyone feels about this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year”! I’ll try and share them with you. There’s more than one. I laughed out loud…cause we gotta laugh! Here’s to tuna cubes and scotch dip!😉


    1. If anyone read your comment without reading my blog post first, they’d think you were totally nuts. LOLOLOL!! Thanks for your note – I loved reading it! By the way, there really should be someone in local government who is responsible for reviewing the names of towns in relation to one another and take into account local businesses – at the VERY least. Ha! Ha! We’ll pull up the match.com ads on YouTube. It’s amazing what’s posted there. We watch the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt that way and all the late night comedians too. P.S. When I was working for Michael Nesmith I spoke with Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones on the phone. It was a hoot because I adored them when they were on TV (which had only been 6 years prior). The Monkees were BIG stuff back then. 🙂


      1. Ha ha ha! You’re so right…I sound completely nuts! I really enjoy your blog posts too! Even the “ everyday” normal stuff…cause it’s entertaining! I’m not even gonna tell my sister about Davy Jones…she’ll pester me with 20 million questions to ask you.

  4. Nice Betyh. I’ve been going to Ireland since I was 18, and have revisited castles etc. that used to be fun places to clamber…now all touristy and railed in…no fun at all.

    Well, you’re in good company with not appreciating music videos…Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits (and a big solo career of course) (Talk about fantastic music of the 70’s and 80’s, but I digress) also hates them and will really not do anything nice in them because he wants people to form their own images and meanings.


    1. I hope Portugal doesn’t follow suit. It would ruin the ability to get a sense of what life was really like back then. I knew you’d be in the same camp regarding music from the 70s and 80s! And, thanks for the tidbit on Mark Knopfler! I had no idea.


  5. Beth,
    Okaaaaay….so was “random musings” written under the influence of ??? 🙂 It was so funny. Stream of consciousness – very fun. Zester transmuted into “disaster”, new fusion food Scottish sushi, and of COURSE the best music is from the 70s/80s (my only exception is Phil Collins, who was hilariously spoofed in South Park )

    Yes the Monkeys were fun – we saw Micky Dolenz perform in 2019 – fun to hear the old songs. Here is Micky & Mike being interviewed in 2019.

    Yes, I agree with you with the over protection/litigious present in much of the US. I remember walking UNDER the falls at Watkins Glen – no barrier then. Now…not the same thrill. Yet, today there’s a thing call death by selfie, just recently someone fell into the abyss of the Grand Canyon trying to get a better up close selfie on the rim of the canyon.

    Great read!


    1. Hand to heart, nothing was involved in writing this one. I have all the material I need just hanging out with my funny husband. I’m glad you enjoyed reading it. Let’s face it, we could all use a good giggle now and then. I laughed as I wrote it. Thanks for the links. I’ve seen the Phil Collins spoof, but I still love In the Air Tonight. The rest of PC’s music is meh. (BTW – it is Monkees with a double ‘e”. Everyone gets it wrong or perhaps autocorrect is the culprit?). Yes – you are right, selfie’s have become quite the hazard. The world is a dangerous place and we all have a responsibility to be vigilant, employ common sense, and hold ourselves personally accountable for our actions and decisions. It’s just really tragic when some people pay the ultimate price for misjudging a situation.
