I think facebook is reading my blog.  As soon as I posted about fish oil yesterday my facebook page had a huge ad for fish oil.  Scary how everything interacts like that.  Or maybe the facebook people are just taking fish oil, what do you think?

This time next week I'll be visiting Podunk!  It has been a really long time since I have been there.  Sarge SO loved it there.  Well, I did too actually but we just couldn't keep up with two homes any more.  I do think if you can possibly buy a vacation home and be able to use it for years and then sell it when you are done it's a great investment.  Especially if you ever wanted to rent it out when you weren't using it.  It's like money in the bank.

So okay this is an actual conversation I had in Publix yesterday.  If you don't like my strange sense of humor please skip over this cause it's a doosey:

Checker:  Is this your brother (looking at the duck).
Me:  No, he's my son.
C;  Oh, is your husband at home waiting for you?
M:  No, I buried him.
C:  Oh, I am so sorry to hear this!
M:  That's okay, I had to, he was dead.
Lady behind me in line:  Cracks up and doubles over laughing!
C: ?

Trust me, Sarge would have loved it.  

So it's Monday again.  That means all those weekenders at the pool won't be there.  Yay.  It's much nicer with just me or just me and the mayor and the governor (of the pool).  (I am the Empress of the whole building, I know because I called it.)

I am ramping up the exercise and cutting back the calories to see if I can do something to start my weight loss again.  It's been a long time since I have lost any.  I have not gained though so that's good.  Now we'll have to see if this works.

So have a perfectly lovely week y'all.  I know I will!


  1. I love that kind of humor. As someone once asked me, "Why did you pay for Fred's funeral, if his kids wouldn't"

    I replied, "Well somebody had to. You can't just leave a dead person laying around like that!"

  2. Bee, your a hoot and you always make my evening/morning so much better.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. I love your sense of humour! :)

  4. Yep, I think that Publix lady was getting a tad too personal! My dad was great at comebacks like that. I never think of anything snappy like that until an hour later...
    Hope the Duck's knee will be okay without more stuff getting done.
    Happy Monday!!!

  5. Just catching up.... You are hilarious!

  6. That conversation WAS funny, and what a compliment for you, to be mistaken for your son's sister!

  7. Bee, See , I told you that you were looking your son's your brother.LOL I bet that clerk was befuddled. Who asks, is your husband at home waiting for you.? DUH.It amazes me what some poeple think is small talk...just ring it up and let me outta here.:):) Have pool fun today. xoxo,Susie

  8. That happens to me too - what ever I look up - is on the ads - I think they put cookies on what you look at! sandie

  9. You are a funny lady Bee I got my second call from nursing home and I was down this morning but reading your blog, I laughed and now I feeling much better. You are my rock lady. See you.


  10. bahahahaha! I adore your sense of humor. But you already know that.

    I hate to be a naysayer or a party poop, but please don't cut your calories back. Nobody should eat less than 1200 calories a day. You have to fuel the burn, baby. srsly. And muscle weighs more than fat. Your plan may backfire all over the place. Change some of your calories with different types of foods. More fruits and veggies... like... ummm... oh, I don't know... SOOTHIES?!

    brother chuckie duck? See?!! You are lookin' smokin' hawt, lady!

    big hugs xoxo

  11. SMOOTHIES. Not soothies. Because that would just be silly, now wouldn't it?

  12. Barb is right Miss Bee. You do have to have calories to burn. Your body goes into starvation mode because of decrease in calories. Minimum 1200 more into 1400-1500 especially with exercise. It will make you lose or gain muscle.

  13. I'm back. Beacause I forgot all about the facebook ad thingy. You are right. They have some complicated algorithm they use and I think it works with your browser history, too. I use chrome and I had googled something and next thing you know there's an amazon ad for JUST that. Coincidence? Maybe... if it had only happened once or twice. But it happens all the time. I empty my history every time I close my browser now. NOt that I think that will help. but still.

  14. OMG...I love your publix discussion!

  15. I love your sense of humor and I would have been laughing just like the lady behind you. Too funny.

    No the ads are targeted to your searches. How do you think the government figured out how to spy on us? Yep. Bless their hearts.

    I hope you have the pool to yourself today.

    I can't figure out how to explain my post today to Roche. He's a young boy and he's not ready for that kind of talk. Bwahahahahahaha.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from chilly and cloudy California. Hey to Roche. ☺

  16. Haha oh yes in deedy they are tracking everything.

  18. MOL - Auntie Bee you are so funny!!!
