Waaah hooo, something to celebrate

An enjoyable work day yesterday with Bosszila gone on a trip and it was payday! I received good news on my house insurance. The cost had gone up so I called the insurance agent who told me that I now have regular homeowners insurance. Sounds like no big deal, but it certainly is. I was not able to get any sort of regular homeowners insurance (despite LOTS of shopping around) because the house is considered a conversion house, not conventionally built. My old insurance company was bought out by a new company and they decided to change their policies to include non-conventional homes!

Yay, something to celebrate for sure! That was the major reason why, even though I had blueprints and a loan ready to go, two years ago I decided to not put on an addition that would double our square-footage (from 300 sq feet!) and add a living room and another bedroom. The house would not have been adequately covered by insurance, and it would have been too big of a risk to take on more debt that wasn’t covered.

Vegetable Man called me early at work yesterday too. He has never done that before because he works nights. We chatted a bit and he was still sorry that he had made me sad and (jokingly) offered to be my sex slave. Well, that’s not all bad, for sure. Speaking of that, are you wondering about the Viagra? Yes, he tried it and it was fabulous, even though I’m against taking drugs like that unless they’re necessary. We did everything and anything we’d ever tried--several times--all in one night. OK, that’s too much information, I guess! But just in case you were wondering….it is a great relationship in that way, and as a friendship too. He just isn’t in love with me and doesn’t want to be a couple, and I am with him, and do.

And no, he wasn’t happy about me not giving him my blog address, seems to feel I am keeping things from him. He doesn’t know either my old or new blog addresses or that I call him Vegetable Man BUT he does know my E-mail address, so if any of those were ever paired up with my E-mail address, he might be able to find me. I would guess that he’s already devoted some effort to finding my blog, unfortunately. I sure do wish I had kept my mouth shut about it. There was no reason to even bring it up in conversation.

Vegetable Man did send me the address of a blog he started and I went to look at it. Hope he doesn’t have any tracking on it to follow me back here! I even considered (for a nanosecond) putting a link to it on my blog so you can go and see him, but that would be insanity!

I didn’t get the cat even though I really wanted one. I’m afraid I’ll fall in love with it and my son or I will still be allergic to cats and have to find kitty a new home. That would be just too sad. There have been no more rodents caught after that night of rodents I posted about. Not even one. Does that mean that the house is cleared? Hope so. Have a super Tuesday!

From my E-mail
The Good Old Days
The following were some comments made in the year 1957:

(1) "I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, its going to be impossible to buy a weeks groceries for $20.00."

(2) "Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long when $5,000 will only buy a used one."

(3) "If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous."

(4) "Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?"

(5) "If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store."

(6) "When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage."

(7) "Kids today are impossible. Those ducktail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls."

(8) "I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying 'damn' in 'Gone With The Wind,' it seems every new movie has either 'hell' or 'damn' in it."

(9) "I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas."

(10) "Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday that they will be making more than the President."

(11) "I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now."

(12) "It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet."

(13) "It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work."

(14) "No one can afford to be sick any more, $35.00 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood."

(15) "I'm just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business."

(16) "Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to Congress."

(17) "The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on."

(18) "I guess taking a vacation is out of the question now days. It costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel."

Press Bloopers
Rev. Hammond was congratulated on being able to get his parish plastered.

Roger Dellwood’s left thumb, which was shot away, is doing nicely.

We've got fifty yankettes married into English nobility right now. Some of them are duchesses. Some are countesses. Eleven are baronesses. Only one is a lady.

The font so generously presented by Mrs. Smith will be set in position at the east end of the Church.

Babies may now be baptized at both ends.

The church is now forming a Little Mothers Club. All women desiring to become Little Mothers are asked to meet with the pastor in his study after services.

Dr. Gilbert Murray, O.M., will celebrate his ninetieth birthday quietly at his home at Boars Hill, near Oxford, tomorrow, with his wife, Lady Mary Murray. They have been married 66 years. This evening he is to broadcast in the BBC Home Service a talk called "Unfinished Battle."

A loudspeaker system has been installed in the church. It was given by one of the members in memory of his wife.

ROTF, my BIL got a hold of a sample of Viagra a while back and decided to take it.

Unfortunatly when he did his wife (my sis) wasn't home and he had a problem for several hours. I laughed so hard when she told me, served him right.

Congratulations on your insurance staus change. Will you be able to build the extension now?

I hope that VM does not find your blog. How about this though, my hubby knows about mine and yet says he has no desire to read it....
So of course he won;t read about me going off to find out how I can get some Viagra ;)

Have a good day PBS.I am not working today and it is good to have time to blog with the house all to myself today

Great news on the insurance! :)

And, if I had to do it over again, I wouldn't mention to The PK that I had a blog AT ALL. He was VERY upset that I had one...and then doubly upset that people commented and I actually REPLIED BACK TO THEM! It's kinda funny actually...I think he's a bit jealous of the people I know on-line. Years ago, it was just the opposite...I was the jealous one. Guess what comes around really does go around, huh?

I don't blame you about the "kitty cat" issue....it'd be awful if you got it and had to give it up later!

I can't help thinking that VM is running a bit of a double standard here. He doesn't want to give you all of himself in a relationship but is not happy what you're have something he is not part of/knows about.

Excellent news on the insurance, we could all do with saving a bit of cash every now and then!

I couldn't agree more with Ms. Mac here ... sounds like the old double standard setting in. Hopefully, you're experienced enough to watch for this type of red flag. Just take care of your heart, my friend.

Ed got a sample of viagra too but we trashed it. Firstly, he's on heart meds that eliminate him from using it ... secondly, so as not to be graphic, let's just say he really really really really doesn't need it! lol

Such great news about your insurance! Do you think you'll reconsider doing that addition now? I know you always mention how little space you have.

Enjoy the rest of your wonderful Tuesday!

I once escorted a friend to the emergency room (severe asthma attack) and was sitting in the waiting room next to a young gentleman who had been experimenting with viagra (taking more than the recommended dose). I don't think he will make that mistake again

It's ok to be against taking viagra, VM took it, not you! I heard there's a 24 hr one. Not sure if that means 24 hrs of priapsm, or 'it' would be ready to work with a little coaching, over a 24 hr period.
Had a newsletter from my homeopathist today saying she can help erectile problems. Yeah, but would she want to be called out at 2am to do it??
Does that also mean she's into troilism. (I hope that means treesomes)

You could start another blog for VM only.

Same as Stacy...my husband doesn't like the blogging and gripes all the time. He doesn't use the computer either. Like discombobulated said...we wouldn't leave comments or give anything away. It would be cool and sort of creepy at the same time...but the cool tops the creepy. I admit a terrible curiosity to check him out.

I'm glad to hear the Viagra is helping. A few years ago, when my husband turned forty, our sex life was suffering because, well, you get the idea. We fought over this issue. He finally went to get Viagra, after much begging on my part, and our sex life really, really improved. That stuff is a Godsend.

I hope VM doesn't find your blog. Definitely don't link him...site statistics would lead him here immediately.
