.Worked in Garden Today...Oy.....Very Short Blog

Hi, dear hearts.........I am a pitiful wreck to day.....tried to get the last few bedding plants I bought last week  into the ground and, even sitting on the wonderful gardeners' bench which is supposed to take all the pain out of gardening didn't save me....can't do planting when seated on your fanny I have found.

Tottered into the house, fell lumpily into my favorite recliner intending to watch some football....that's all it took to convince me I am losing what is left of my mind.  After sort of enjoying the pre-season game with the Chicago Bears and the Oakland Raiders I flipped around the remote looking for the next game and all I could find was a repeat of the Chicago Bears and the Oakland Raiders,  Since I already knew how that one came out I tried desperately to find another one and did succeed, finally, but, did not find it till almost halftime and  when that was over I looked for the highly touted Brett Favre season debut (us old folks gotta stick together) and what did I find?   You guessed it.......Bears and Raiders.  By the time I found the Minnesota game Brett had played his four plays and was reclining on the bench saving his very expensive bod for the beginning of the real season.  What I want to know is, do the networks think they can show us the same game 3 times during the day and fool us into thinking that we haven't seen it yet????  It's all too much for my tired brain to comprehend so I did what any well adjusted person would do....I fell asleep and didn't wake up until Sunday football was truly finished.(though I am sure if I really try I can still find the Chicago Bears vs the Oakland Raiders on SOME channel or other.)

But, that is not what I really intended to write about today.........I happened upon a little video among the news bits that really tickled the hell out of me.  It happens to deal with the superb Home Health Agency which has done so splendidly by me since I went splat on my arse last March.....it is called "Home Instead" and the video features one of their satisfied clients speaking at their annual Eat/Drink/and be very Merry/ Meeting.  If you enjoy really funny old ladies, (and, let's  face it.....who doesn't?.......what was that I heard you say....you in the 3rd row center?.....I'll deal with you later....)  don't miss this......I am practically emerald green with envy and jealous as hell besides.

.Enjoy.

I'll return when my back and knees forgive me for what I put them through today.  Joints are so unforgiving....dammit.......

  3. Lo - I love your posts. Do you use Windows Live Writer? If not, you should give it a try. You'll find that your hyperlinks are a snap in insert. Now I must know, what is your team?

  4. Isn't advertising amazing? They can make almost anything look appealing.

    I hope your joints cut you some slack soon, and remember that football is never over, it just bleeds over into basketball, then baseball, then...

  5. Hi Lo, sorry I couldn't stop by earlier, was at a 1980s music festival! Anyhoo, I'm always getting mixed up with where television programmes are and watching repeats by mistake. At least you realised it was a repeat! Always a pleasure to have a post from you. :-)

  7. Great post! I'm making too many typos lately that's why I deleted the earlier comment. I must remember to preview. Ahhh to remember. lol Don't like all those repeats either, especially the duplicated commercials that come day after day.

  8. Hi LO! Well if I ever start watching Football everyone will know I have lost my mind. I never understood the game in the first place..I have seen some awfully cute behinds in those tight pants tho..what a distraction that must be!
    It sounds funny to hear you talk about planting bedding plants..when I can see Fall weather fast approaching and the snow will follow:)

  9. Golly....I guess I owe a few of you some serious answers....

    I remember Johnny Unitas....there have been so many since...... Bob Waterfield, Roger Stauback, Jim Plunkett, Terry Bradshaw, John Riggins, ....and then there were the young greats....Dan Marino, John Elway......haven't got a favorite right now nor a favorite team but I am a bit partial to the old guy, Brett Favre, so I keep an eye on the Vikings.

    I am not a passionate fan anymore but I still enjoy watching sometimes. Used to also watch Basketball and Baseball and even Golf, but I never could get into hockey....those guys are too mean.

  15. Oh, that "invocation" was priceless! (Are we sure that wasn't Eddie Izzard's Mama?) I can't wait to show it to my mother. She'll appreciate every word of it.

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice comment. Not a sports fan but enjoy your observations and quirky takes on people. No matter how old we grow, a great sense of humor makes us feel young. I'll be back again to wander your lovely gardens.

  17. Loved that invocation. Thanks for posting it. I needed a good laugh :-). Hope you're feeling better.

  18. You should have heard the profanity over here when we realized they were replaying the SAME GAME. And who wants to watch the Bears and Raiders anyway?!?

    Oh, I guess we do. Must be football season.

  19. Of course, they're all abuzz here in Viking land about Brett coming back. And further amazed that another now 40 year old Jim Thome is wacking home runs like crazy for the Twins. I find it really depressing that a youngster like a forty year old should get all these accolades for doing anything. Old? I don't think so.... :)
