WELL, HEY!!! Psillyville stirs again!   :D    :D     Hmmmm......joke.....joke....let's see.....

 

Well, this is from real life: at the entrance to the funeral home/cemetery near me, the big, austere, stone-surrounded sign at the main entryway says, "Drive carefully.....we'll wait"....

A: "Curl Up and Dye."

 

 

At least around year 2001ish, there really was a hair salon in the Pittsburgh area that was named "Shirley's Curl Up and Dye."  I would always laugh on it when we took a certain road it was on.  LOL

check, check, check for Irish and check, check, check, check for karen

 

anyone else want to play stump the emergency pack....well one of those checks for karen is a pair of comfy shorts rather than undies...my dear aunt gert drilled it into us...lever leave home without spare panties in your purse -- that is an embarrassing practice when you are raising little boys that are digging through your bag for a snack (cuz there was always one -- long before i had ever heard the word celiac).

I don't leave the house without a package of wet wipes  :ph34r: and an emergency stash of meds.  Thinking I'll have to add the bottle of wine to my go bag.  I don't know why I didn't think of that....it's so obvious  B)

wipes - check, but were dried out

meds - had to add the silly epi to the go bag thus the reason for today's inspection -- figured if I had to add epi, i would take the opportunity to add wine -- which is what I am about to do to my day

 

pouring now :)

If you are pouring your your wine into a glass, and it is not full:

If you think the glass is half full, you are an optimist.

If you think it is half empty, you are a pessimist.

If you believe that the glass is the wrong size, you are an engineer!

Engineer here...just went to a larger glass...cuz I spilled a touch from the last pour. Now I have a large glass...half full ;)

Edited to add...'tween pours I got the pool plumbing hooked back up again and bathed the dog ... Poor thing has been scared of water her whole life and is now 15 and has skin eby-jeebies...we splashed around in a warm epsom bath and she seems to be happy now.

Added fun...the salt water chlorine generator has an alarm issue....perfect water salivation and copper levels....but the generator is still unhappy...thankful for amazon prime right now...new generator to arrive mañana :)

I drop my drinks so often, my husband made me buy a bunch of those lidded insulate cups with straws, and I like their protection so much, I only use those if I am away from the kitchen table!  Kind of sad, but it works!

 

Being all anal retentive and OCD, you would crack up at the stuff I kept on me at all times.  My car has two ice scrapers, tire pressure thing, spare cords and chargers, an emergency baggie with floss, q tips, tampons, bandaids, wet wipes, alcohol wipes, hair ties, pen... i keep a brush and floss picks in there (i like to floss, a lot.) and an emergency roadside kit.  None of these things are visible, all neatly tucked away in my pretty car that I like to keep very clean because I don't like dirty things.

 

My purse is a greater extension of all that... lol... but the #1 thing I never leave home without is HAND SANITIZER!!!  I'm a serious germaphobe and pretty much die inside if I don't have it when I need it.

Check on all that except the thing my husband used to "love" picking up at the store before I lost that plumbing ;)

Was joking with hubs tonight...I think I could build a crude tent with emergency blankets and duct tape....and outfit it pretty well...all with my emergency response team pack....of course I am no longer sure I could carry it a great distance.

Omg......I am exactly, ridiculously, frighteningly the opposite. Do I actually even have ONE ice scraper in my car?.... :unsure: ....not sure......Umbrella?....Jumper cables?....emergency candles/blankets.....?.....I would be a pathetic mess if suddenly stranded on an isolated stretch. And my PURSE, well......no feminine products (actually, got them in my gym bag).....no band-aids (always asking DH for one -- always in his wallet....he is the ex-boy scout, OCD-ready-for-armageddon type), minimal makeup....no hand sanitizer. I remain a germ-covered, makeup-less, food-between-my-teeth miscreant.....Gawd, how do I keep friends?   :rolleyes:

We've got a dual- anality (I think I just made that word up)  thing going on here. J and I both have "kits".

We now live where you must keep a "disaster kit" for hurricane season. Being a celiac requires advance thinking for travel anyway, so

I've got a "got-to" bag anyway, so I just added to it a bit. His has bottled water, tools, duct tape, batteries, flashlights--seriously, how many flashlights do you really need? apparently 10 or so. (Now this made sense when we lived in the remote countryside, but here? )

Mine has shelf-stable food, hand mirror and small bag with er, grooming materials LOL--waaa? I like to look good in any weather,-the famous TP--I think the TP thing is ingrained having had issues all my life until DX lol--1 change of clothes for both of us--which is a tee shirt, shorts and undies lol, paper towels. Things like that.

Yes, the car has items like this too--all the time---bandaids, paper towels, flashlight< see what I mean?-- stash cash, car cell phone charger, beach shoes. 

And of course, now Bella the cat has to have a "got-go" bag too.  :lol: right next to her carrier in case of evacuation. (note to self: get kitty cat valium.....)

Please, please do not email him and tell him about the solar ones. :lol:

Shake flashlights! Even better than solar because, when you need the solar flashlight it's been sitting in a dark " go bag" or under your car seat. These things you shake them up and they work.
