Mama really NEVER said there would be days like this!

It has been such a strange Monday...several upsetting things that I just don't think I should blog about. But trust me, over here in normalland, there is never a dull moment.

After the strangeness of the day, I went to Publix to pick up a few groceries, turned down an aisle and there was a woman sitting on the floor beside her buggy eating a sandwich. My cousin, don't ya just love small towns??, was ahead of me on the aisle and I heard him ask if she needed help. She said no, I'm just eating. When I got to the cash register, I said are you aware a woman is on the floor on the chip aisle? The cashier said, yes, we asked her if she needed help and she said she had to eat her sandwich because the olives were falling out, to which in my oh, so tactful way, I say, I think she may be a few olives short of a jar and anyway isn't there some kind of safety rule that says you should HELP HER WHETHER SHE WANTS IT OR NOT??? I just need to stay home!

Well, who wants to eat a sandwich without the olives?

Sorry, some of our 'crazies' must be heading south for the winter!

That is just TOO FUNNY!

The family reunion sounds like great fun. Someone has to take charge and make sure it doesn't stop when the older generation is gone. It's a lot of work, though, organizing a family reunion.
