Happy Columbus Day 2017!


“Living Garbage Free”

Recently, I hopped in a taxi, and we took off for the Airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car pulled right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call The Law of the Garbage Truck. He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it; and sometimes, they’ll dump it on you. He said, Don’t take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on!! Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that stress-free people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.

Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love on the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a garbage-free day!!!

My Dripping Face

When I’m off on the weekends, we go out to breakfast; and of course, Casey & Tessie go along for the ride. So a couple of Sundays ago, we slept in and then went to Jersey Mike’s for lunch instead before going grocery shopping at Wal-Mart. My husband had a free regular sub & drink birthday coupon.

I can never finish my meal, so I always take leftovers home for lunch at work; and sometimes, my husband will save a bite of his breakfast or lunch as a doggie treat.

On this day, he had a Philly Cheese Steak sub and saved them a couple of bites. After I scraped the onions & green peppers off, I gave Casey & Tessie 2 bites each.

The next thing I knew Casey was giving me an extra-large wet kiss. I had drool or slobber dripping from my face. I looked at my husband, and he was laughing as he passed me a napkin.
