Snoot

Hi everyone!

Do you know anyone that comes up to you and says and talks, talks, talks? Then all of a sudden they stop! It’s time to getaway!
Then you here “Did you know?”
Me, you would think I had learned my lesson from the last time Mrs. Guilderfess was at the art museum fundraiser. She sure is a “snoot“.

Hope: Hey Nins! Look whose walking her dog this morning.
Nins: I don’t believe it.
Hope: Nins, who are you calling?
Nins: Abby of course, she won’t want to miss this. She has such class or at least she thinks so with that outfit.

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I have to take a picture! He’s so snobby with me and my family. We have been neighbors for twenty (20) years and he has never smiled, say hi.
But that doesn’t stop me saying hi. Or how are you Mr. Guilderfess? Missed you at the museum fundraiser last week. I always have a smile and a pot of tea ready just in case he takes my offer for some “Earl Grey” tea.
He’s not as snooty as his wife.

Have a great day! Hope

Tortuous

Hi Everyone!

Okay, gang here we go down the crooked road to aunt Mabel’s home.

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence, against a crooked stile,
He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Poem by Mother Goose

Can’t get any more crooked than that!

Have a great day! Hope
