Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. I was just sitting here thinking about the little things that irritate me...and no, Max, I am not talking about you. And yes, I know it is a good thing if I value by tennis shoes…I get it. Anyway…one of the things that is very irritating is the plastic that protects the microwave foods. I don’t eat a lot of them, but I do indulge them at times. Most instructions require you at some point to pull the plastic covering back so you can stir the contents, replace the plastic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. I don’t know about you, but that plastic has a life of its own. I pull it up and it wants to fold on to its self and then it will not come apart without a lot of effort, sometimes requiring both hands while at the same time trying to avoid the hot food that you are trying to recover. Wonder if they could get some Velcro strips on those dinners? The other thing that is starting to get on my nerves are bananas. Yes, bananas. I buy a bunch on the weekend…I get the green ones of course…but for some reason, even before the week is out, they have soften and turned dark and ugly. Now I like bananas that are firm and look like a banana, not something that looks like someone took a ball bat to them. So I end up throwing most of the bananas away and buying fresh ones. Yes, I understand I should eat them faster, but one banana a day is my limit. I guess I could try freezing them, but not so sure my teeth would thank me. LOL
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritation and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.”
Government surveyors came to Ole’s farm in the fall and asked if they could do some surveying. Ole agreed, and Lena even served them a nice meal at noon time. The next spring, the two surveyors stopped by and told Ole, “Because you were so kind to us, we wanted to give you this bad news in person instead of by letter.” Ole replied, “What’s the bad news?” The surveyors stated, “Well, after our work here, we discovered your farm is not in Minnesota but is actually in Wisconsin.” Ole looked at Lena and said, “That’s the best news I have heard in a long time. I just told Lena this morning that I don’t think I can take another winter in Minnesota.”
That is all I have that is bothering me right now…sure I will think of more later. LOL As always be good, play safe and remember to try and see the humor in life’s little irritations.
JR and Max
