Smells Good Up Here...

Whatever Diane is cooking in the kitchen, smells good from up here in the loft.  Natalie and I moved some of my boxes from the loft, put some more into the attic space.  The only thing is that we have to move them back out if we want to find anything stored in the same space. 

Bob , now has some plastic bags to move up on the shelf in our closet.  I can hear him groan, "Oh, no!"  I probably should throw away some things, but it is all good stuff.

Time to eat, so I am out of here and down the stairs to fill my plate.

If "Seven Score And Seven Years" Equal...

If  "seven score and seven years" equal seventy seven; then that means that Bob is "seven score and seven years" old.  I am not that old!!!  LOL  LOL

By the way,  June,  I don't see a wrench and whatever you said on my MAC laptop; therefore I don't have the tools to fix anything or, maybe I should say "the brains" to fix anything connected with the computer.

Didn't Abe Say...

Didn't Abe say in his Gettysburg Address, something like this, "Seven score and seven years ago..."?  Well, if he did and "seven score and seven years" equal 77 years, then I am "seven score and one year" old in age.

Don't you ever think about things like that?  I do and I swear I am not crazy, or up too late into the wee hours of the morning, like 4:48  a.m.

Do you think my sleeping pill does not work?  I don't think it does.  Dag-gum-it!!!!!

I Knew It Was Going To Happen

Well, I knew it was going to happen when Bob told me that he would drive me any place I wanted to go, because he doesn't want me to get lost and have to have a policeman bring me home like I did when we lived in Edinburg after living there for fifteen years.

First I have to explain how up and down the stock market has been the last few weeks.  You realize it has lost a ton of money; therefore Bob assumes we lost a fortune also; true or not.  Time will tell.

SO-O-O-O, this afternoon I asked him to take me to Michaels, so I could use one of my 50% off coupons.  He said he would; but we should be careful about what we spend for awhile; because he just bought some shelves for $160 dollars, and a new weed eater for ??? dollars.  I didn't know he had done that.  What else that he isn't telling you is that he spends $40.00 dollars a week on cigarettes; and I stopped smoking 5 years ago.  (HINT! HINT!  Look at the money I have saved from not smoking; of course I haven't told you how much money I have spent on my relative new hobby of greeting card making with rubber stamps or that I spent $80 dollars last night on Cuttlebug folders to support my habit of gathering items to make greeting cards.)

The outcome of this whole outburst is that I didn't go to Michaels.  Dag-gum-it!!!!!!!!!!  AND I knew  this would happen, that he would try to control my spending by insisting on driving me everywhere I go.  You would think I spend all of our money and I didn't earn any money or earned retirement money. 

P.S.  Since this appears to be a "Bash Bob" blog today; I have to tell you what else he did.  I keep an empty Walmart or HEB plastic bag for my trash beside the couch where I spend the most of my time in the loft here at Diane's house.  Bob always takes my bag of trash to the larger trash can and leaves me without a small plastic bag.  

Well!!!!!!!!!!!  This afternoon he tried to take my little trash bag and I told him,  "NO-O-O!!!!!!!!  it wasn't full."  He gave me one of those disgusted sighs and looks and left it.  Thank goodness!

Sometimes I think we are like oil and water; but we have been married for 45 years, so-o-o-o we must have blended together some time or another.  LOL  LOL  LOL Oh - we have 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law, 6 grandchildren, 2 grand-dogs, and 5 grand-cats and maybe I have counted wrong.

Wish I had a computer expert to take me thru the steps I have to take to import my old blog and blend it in with the new mjbcoffee blogspot.

I am too tired to think this through tonight.

Until I Can Put My Now Two-Parted Blog Together

This part of my blog - mjbcoffee is located at my new e-mail address because of my poor?? memory  and inability to reach my old e-mail address which was disabled.  New blog address is  My new e-mail is  I think you can still read the old part of the blog at  I couldn't access my old blog because I had my blogger disabled there because I couldn't remember my password for that e-mail or my password, plus Minnesota e-mail account which was

If you can make sense of all of that; you are better than the Blogger website, where I can't get an answer or talk to a real person for love or money!!!!!

Will take more time tomorrow if I can settle down and think about what to write.  Bob won't let me drive by myself, because he is afraid I won't be able to find my way home.  LOL  LOL  This past spring I was in downtown Edinburg and couldn't find my way back to Diane's house or back to Orange Grove where we lived; so I asked a policeman to take me home. 

He had to receive special permission from his supervisor to take me to Diane's house and then out to Orange Grove to Jean's place and finally to our place where Bob was home, shaking his head in disbelief.  He figured if I could not find my way back home in Edinburg where we had lived for the past 15 years; he doesn't want me out with the car in the Katy/Houston area.  LOL  LOL

He wasn't too happy letting me drive off in the car the two months we were in Minnesota.  LOL  I think he was afraid I would get lost going left out of our lane to June's or going right out of our lane to Orr.

Try This Again

I want to see if this goes on my old blog pages or the new one.  Cross your fingers and toes that it goes to the old one.  I will be so happy!!!!

Cross Your Fingers

Cross your fingers and your toes and hope this works.  I think I am back on my blog.  Time will tell.  I haven't been able to update my blog because I couldn't get on with the change of e-mail addresses from Edinburg and Minnesota.  I think I have it worked out.  I sure hope so.
