That's Not What I Meant!

I was sitting at "tea" with some friends as one showed off her newest phone. She was intrigued with it's ability to GPS, take photos, text, email and access the Internet. Another listening friend sighed.

"I am not good with technology," she said holding out her simpler cell phone. "I can't even get my vibrator to work."

We all paused, and laughed. "Dear Friend," I said, "you might want to rephrase it to 'I can't get my phone to vibrate'." I'm afraid her face was a bit red.

Dad went to his home, attached to my sister's house, last night. He still needs a great deal of time to recooperate and appreciates all your good thoughts and prayers.

Our hen crowed, or rather warbled, yesterday. Meaning "she" is a "he". I don't have a rooster right now so that's okay. I rather miss the sound in the morning.

On the other hand, one of the two other chickies is a hen and is leaving a rather small green egg in the mornings. We don't know if the layer is the white or red chickie.

Errr, there are way too many things to hen peck in this post! Too many openings for racy humor...but I'll refrain, but know this, inwardly I'm chuckling, a LOT! Too funny!

Glad Dad's doing well and I hope your friend figures out her vibrator dilemma; and well, here's to hatching a rooster as well!

A small green egg? Very Dr. Seuss-ish!

Cloudia, Thank you! Reading your book now.

Now, Robin, this is a family friendly blog :-) but you do have me wondering what is in your mind!

Hey, Travis, good to see you here.

Gregory, not on your life. Nuh-uh, not going there. The wine should enhance your imagination. Where's YOUR blog? I am bereft.

Thanks, Mark and Janie - time is the healer in this case.

Barrie - 'tis true! I am going to have it with ham today!
