I am so close its embarrassing.  Really.  Don't listen to those 'naysayers'.  Shakespeare once said, oh wait, I never read Shakespeare.   But I digress.  Working in a group is sometimes difficult for me.  Alright.  Some would say 'doesn't play well with others' is more accurate.  Its just a matter of interpretation.  Integrity first, all else second.  Yes, humility is important and I do try to keep it in the mix.  Not always an easy task but only for good reasons.  In my attempt to keeping people informed, on any subject, my eagerness takes over, hiding my humility and humbleness.  Not good but any offense unintentional.  So there you have it.  Remember all my good qualities.  They are what make me.  No.  I won't list them again.  Quit daydreaming and use your brain.......................marge

Random thoughts

In another lifetime, I used to sit and cry as I tried to fold a contour sheet and make it come out square.  When you don't hear from your grown children, send an email.  'Hello I'm fine'.  I'll be 'finer' when the cast comes off my wrist.  If there's no such thing as a 'figured person', then there should not be a 'disfigured' person.  Its all in the mind's eye.  Pro baseball batters are also pros at multitasking.  Who else can chew, swing a bat and hit a ball all at the same time.  Perhaps high schoolers in class could benefit from the pros.  "Let them chew gum!"  The spitting is not in this equation.  Finally, I can't help wondering what the players do when home.  Does the wife occasionally have to slap them upside the head?  Till next time.........................marge

Good job Patty

When driving with my daughter in my car, she's always saying, "don't hit that flying bird or squirrel running across the road!"  This week she was about to leave the drive-in window at McDonald's in Novi.  Something flashing across the front of her car caused her to slam on the brakes.  The 'object', a toy, was immediately followed by a dashing young child.  His Grandma was extremely grateful and assuredly not the only one..............................marge

Kim Kardashian and family

Every day I turn on the computer, up pops a story about Kim Kardashian and her family.  I pretty much have no idea who they are, what they do or more importantly, why.  I've seen her wearing white, I've seen her wearing black.  I've seen her wearing see through and not see through.  What am I missing here and should I care?  So far I don't think not caring has been detrimental to me.  I guess I'll stop worrying about it.  As Rhett Butler said, "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.".......................marge

I did it!

Yesterday I put my initials in wet cement.  That shouldn't be a problem.  Oh wait.  It wasn't my cement, it was the City's. I won't tell if you won't.  Cross my heart.  Maybe.  PS.  The hand print is NOT mine.....................marge

I am wandering mindlessly in this world.  I wait for fantastic doors to open to anywhere (good and special, nothing or no one else need apply) on a daily, no hourly basis.  Getting into the car, no goal in mind, answering the phone, opening my emails, checking who rang the door bell, stopping at a garage sale, waiting for that something 'special'.  When a small or larger 'special' happens, sadly, it's short lived, or so it seems.  Is there a permanent fix?  No.  That's why we keep trying.  Enthusiasm wanes, or is this what we call Depression?  Goals are all around us.  I just don't know where or how to look........................marge

May be an epidemic.

Or maybe I'm just now noticing.  Have you checked out all the 'elbow drivers' at your local grocery store?  This is not the same as the young people walking about with heads down and thumbs attached to their I- Pads  (or whatever those little 'screened'  boxes are called).  These are (not all),  mostly seniors doing their grocery shopping.  We, yes I too, have developed this terrible habit of using the carts for support.  Be it known it does make for bad steering so please, keep an eye on our carts as you pass by.  I'm making it your responsibility. not ours, to avoid cart crashes.......................marge
