Déjà Vu

: the feeling that you have already experienced something that is actually happening for the first time
: something that has happened many times before : something that is very familiar


The Husband and I were working together in the kitchen on Monday evening, 10.13.2014, preparing my "famous" pork chop casserole.  The TV was turned to the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and, of course, the hot topic was Ebola in the United States.

As we performed mundane tasks to put together the casserole, I said to him, "This is Déjà Vu for me! How many movies have I watched where the opening scenes are innocent, routine family life and then by the end of the movie 90% of the population is dead?"


The Last Ship
I Am Legend
The Walking Dead

There are many more shows/movies, but I can't remember the names.

Need I say more?

Are the "preppers" of the world feeling pretty smug now?

The Kiss

 20 years ago we kissed in The Husband's backyard, 
in front of family and friends.

20 years later we kiss where ever the mood strikes us!

Social Security & Medicare

The Husband and I went to a dinner party last weekend 
with folks he has known since high school.

A good part of the conversation was focused on 
when to "take" social security and how much Medicare costs.

When did we get to be this old?

I'm pretty sure I'm only 33 or 34.


Perhaps not!

Old Pics

We are scanning old pictures as we have time.

This is a picture of me in late 1980's. 

I thought I was fat.

How silly.

We really must stop the unhealthy perception of weight.

I got a hair cut this week.

Sure is a lot cooler.

Shawnee Corn Pitcher

While I was vacationing last week, The Husband stopped at an estate sale and picked up a pitcher for my Shawnee Corn collection.

I love it!

I have previously written about my collection here.

Sister Trip

My Sister and I took a trip together last week.

No Husbands.

No Children.

Just Sisters.

Four days on the beach in Destin, FL.

It was awesome.
