   Gram77 posted on Coffee Klatch  I was checking out Lucianne before coming here and I see that Mrs. O. is once again traveling, this time to Ireland. The figure is astronomical, well over 7 million. Just curious as to how England handles Kate and William's expenses for their trips. Maybe a dumb question given that Kate and William never appear like they are just out for fun.

   Gram77 posted on Coffee Klatch  Wow!! Did any one else besides us in Florida have a perfect and beautiful rainbow circle around the sun? We saw it around 1:30 in the afternoon. The entire parking lot was full of people looking up and taking pictures. A first for me! (4-16-14 )

   Escaped commieny  Didn't get it here in Central Fl. DH is in Miss and did see the blood red moon. We had a terror storm here yesterday afternoon, and the Beaglie was in his thunder shirt with me holding him under the bed bankies. If I know ahead of time, he gets Melatonin, but it came on too fast. Vet OK'd it.

   Escaped commieny  little stinker always gets lots of hugs, I have to put him in the bed with a pillow over his head and hold him, the big girl, Molly, doesn't react at all, thank goodness, she is 85 lbs, he is only 13 in tall but was a puppy during the 4 hurricanes. Beautiful weather today. Thanks Phooey for the pics

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Just got back from running errands and had time to hit the library. Found a honey of a book and could hardly put it down long enough to share with all you readers. The title is Flight By Elephant. The author is Andrew Martin. From the back cover....."The astonishing true story of a middle-aged tea planter who mounted an epic rescue mission, with the aid of a herd of elephants." This takes place in a time of which I read about a lot; the 1930s.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  Hubby and I were at the grocery store today and I was doing my thing when along behind me came a lady at the check out with a dog in the cart......with her food choices!! I had to really struggle to keep my mouth shut. My goodness, all the shoppers put uncovered food in those carts! How many carts like this one have I maybe used? And of course not a manager to be seen. Is this done more than I know and just have seen it? I'm still fuming and that was hours ago!

   Flaming Sword  I am not a germ freak, but a recent dog's butt where my food currently resides would have me raising Cain to the management. Bottom line in my opinion? Let it go and next time it may get worse.

   StormCnter  I never ever let it go when someone has a pet in a facility where food is being purchased or served. Service dogs are readily identifiable and those are legally allowed, but no other animals. I watched a woman shifting her small dog from arm to arm while she evaluated Valentine candy on the rack. Each time she shifted the dog, the hand where the dog had been resting was then fondling the candy packages. Turn them in and if management won't do anything, contact the Health Department.

   BirdsNest  Shopping carts, as a general rule are toxic wastelands on good days. Ladies, you set your purse in the little basket that has probably held a small child with a dirty leaky diaper. Your purse has been parked on the floor of the public toilet, maybe, so it is transferring germs too. In the stores that provide wipes, we use them to wipe down the cart, any place that we may touch, then wipe our hands with another one.

   Gram77 posted on Faith  Until Flight 370 is found either in pieces or whole, my main concern is for the passengers and I pray for them every day. I truly hope others are too.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I was still a bit out of kilter last night so watched some TV. I watched Hawaii 50 and 2 actors had what they call cameo parts. One was Melonie Griffith and the other Tom Berringer. He looked very good but it was very apparent that she had had "some work done" and I thought she looked so fake. I think most Hollywood females age rather well and should leave well enough. She had a Joan Rivers look with eyes pulled so tight they were slanted. I'll keep my age spots and wrinkles.

   Surfhut  Keeping my age spots, wrinkles and gray hair! I've seen pictures of Melanie since she had the work done. She is such a natural beauty and now looks horrible IMO. There are so many older women in Hollywood who have obviously had plastic surgery and they look terrible!

   Rake King  My aunt Meme said, "Show me a woman with wrinkles and I bet you she was a fun person who grinned a lot". The opposite of most people's idea, worry did it. I like to think my aunt had it right.

   Surfhut  Rake, I believe you and Aunt Meme are right. I have wrinkles on my face in what I call "all the right places." I've lived through serious challenges as we all do. All the way, the furrowed brow turns into the smile because the light at the end of the tunnel always appears.

   Rake King  Aunt Meme spent her life on the farm, thru the Great Depression, loaned two sons during World
War II (got both back ), cooked 3 meals per day on a wood cook stove (most of her life ). She loved me and I her, and she had a face full of wrinkles....in the right places. You all would have loved her and her infectious smile.

   Gram77 posted on Faith  My really dear friend whom I've asked for prayers before, passed away on this date (3/14/14 ). She fought C-Diff, congestive heart failure, and liver failure. God chose to bring her home and she told her family she was ready. She was here in Florida last Fall and we had a circus. We shopped, scouted antique stores, visited with all she had worked with and ate every time we turned around. I can't express the gratitude I have for those few days and I am able to remember our talks, hugs and laughs
