The Halloween and Thanksgiving stuff disappeared at Meijer (regional grocery story.) And Christmas is on the way. I hear Christmas music and see Christmas decorations. Even “Sandy the Pony” (penny pony ride) has a pile of penny’s underneath her for anyone who needs a ride. It won’t be long before Christmas happens.
When you are young and getting married, more often than not, you don’t have a lot of “stuff”. Clothes, a car, some pots and pans, and maybe some furniture. But, after 60 plus years, you both have a lot of “stuff”.
So, the challenge is “whose stuff do you keep and whose stuff do you get rid of?”
Lowell is getting a Dollar Tree store. And, since it is in the low income area of Lowell, it should do quite well.
Salon 206 is where I used to get my hair cut back when I got my hair cut. In fact, I was a “charter customer” of Salon 206.
I used to get my hair cut at another salon. But, when my favorite stylist left and started Salon 206, I followed. That was 25 years ago. Then, about 15 years ago, I decided to just let my hair grow. So, I no longer did business there. Yet, we were close and kept in touch.
But, the owner was ready to retire and I can understand that. We were together for a very long time. I wish her the best.
Gas is at $3.04 a gallon. This is the lowest it has been in months. I was so excited that I filled up both of my cars. I may even fill up my lawn mower and my snow blower.
We have new traffic lights here in Lowell. And while you can not see it, there are now left turn lights for the cross traffic. With the expressway in one direction and the high school in the other, there is quite a bit of cross traffic in this intersection. And who knows, we may one day get left turn lights in all four directions.
Well, once again, it is that time of the year; the MSU/UM football game. And, in keeping with MSU tradition, it is a “lose-lose” event.
If MSU loses, you have to listen to them “whine” for weeks on end; the officiating was bad, UM didn’t play fairly, etc. And, if they win, you have to listen to them openly gloat about their victory, as if they had all donated a kidney to Mother Teresa.
But, I have noted a certain neuroses on the part of MSU fans. MSU fans behave like they are the Ugly Step Children of Michigan. Their focus is not on the Rose Bowl; their only focus is on beating UM. And nothing else matters as long as they beat Michigan. In this day and culture, they are much like suicide bomber. “we don’t care if we live or die as long as we kill er beat UM…”
And while most Michigan fans, that I have observed, will root for MSU if MSU is headed for the Rose Bowl, the MSU fans will not return the favor. Instead, MSU fans will root for who ever opposes UM.
MSU fans are a sad “sicko” lot.
McDonald’s is advertising Premium Coffee. So, does that mean that they have been selling us Standard Coffee for all of these years?
There is a new type of underwear on the market called “Shreddies”. Shreddies claim to fame is that they absorb gastrointestinal odors. No more “Crop dusting”, no more staying down wind, no more working the crowd. In short, your farts won’t smell. And, with an ample supply of cotton wadding, no one will hear you either.
A garage sale sign said it all when it stated that “our crap can be your crap.” Well, OK.
