Inconvenience Stores

Hello Everyone!

Oh my gosh! I forget the cookies for the meeting. Ahh! I just spotted a store. I will run in and be out in a second or two. (convenience)
Me: Cookies, cookies, cookies. Where the heck are they.
Sir, where are the cookies.
Store assistant: Miss they are right over there. (inconvenience)
Me: Those are refrigerated and have to be baked. I need ones already made.
Store assistant: Miss you didn’t specify what type you wanted. (inconvenience)
Me: Sorry sir, can you tell me where the shelf stabled cookies are.
Store assistant: Miss they are in the front to the right. (inconvenience)
Me: Thank you.
So I get to the front, look to the right and are you ready for this, they only carry little packets of cookies. (inconvenience) As I stand there, shaking my head, I picked up a basket and took all the cookies. Ahh! Got them.
Now I turn around to pay and guess what?

You are so right, there are ten (10) people ahead of me, one (1) cashier and the oldest register I ever saw. The cashier had to add up items by hand, then figure out the tax, take the money, then bag the items. (inconvenience)

Now you might be thinking where is the store assistant to help out.

Store assistant is on break!! (inconvenience)

I started off going to a convenience store, and walked out of the most inconvenience store.

Have a great day! Hope

Aesthetically Appealing

Hello Everyone!

A New World to Play In” is a new Apple Arcade game using the song “Welcome to My World”.

In the commercial as each second changes to a character they are singing
“Welcome To My World”
Welcome To My World sung by Dean Martin in the 1967 as a studio albums.
Welcome To My World written and sung by Jim Reeves.

Welcome To My World was also sung by Eddy Arnold, Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson.
If you want more information search Google, Bing, etc, and
Don’t forget

For me this song is “aesthetically appealing!”
As the song plays I close my eyes and find myself and my husband dancing on air. As we dance we smile, share each others happiness, dream of what our future maybe.
Our eyes see the “aesthetically appealing” wonders in the world as we hop on different clouds.

Welcome to my world
won’t you come on in
miracles i guess
still happen now and then

Step into my heart
and leave your cares behind
welcome to my world
built with you in mind

knock and the door will open
seek and you will find
ask and you’ll be given
the key to this world of mine

I’ll be waiting here
with my arms unfurled
waiting just for you
welcome to my world

Have a great day! Hope

Posted in Bonkers Away, Kazoo


Hello Everyone!

Have you noticed the commercials where all of a sudden people start playing the KAZOO?

All of a sudden I’m moving my feet and ready to join them but I don’t have a KAZOO!!

So I wondered what the KAZOO was all about.

Well a KAZOO play actually hums instead of blows in to it. This oscillating air pressure of the hum makes the KAZOO’S membrane vibrate.
Sounds will vary in pitch and loudness as you hum away.
KAZOO players use specific syllables like doo, “too”, who, rrrr or brrr.

Celebrated on January 28th

In case you didn’t know – ta dah
Yes! Can you believe it? An electric KAZOO!

I’m totally KAZOOED out!

Have a great day! Hope

Hello Everyone!

Start – Yarn, needles, pattern. Knitting has two (2) needles to work with, crocheting has one (1) needle. There are many different sizes of needles and yarns. It is unbelievable!

I still consider myself a beginner. I watch or search on the web at yarn companies websites to look for a pattern I have never done before. I have to tell you, I see one and really love how it looks, then look at the pattern. Then think to myself this one is not for me right now.

I still consider myself a beginner. I’m not a fast knitter. I just take one stitch at a time.
I call my knitting Hope’s Knitting Imperfections. I keep an eye out of stitches that are dropped, lost, and yes pull out a few rolls because it’s on row ten (10) and I’m at row twenty (20).

Now sometimes I get carried away and end up with a piece like this one.
This is my mystery piece.

When I finish my knits, I lightly wash and dry.
Then put in plastic bag that seals on the top.

Add a label.

Insert Hope’s Knitting Imperfections sheet.

Have a great day! Hope
