Just Wondering


This is Merrillee, and I'm probably going to wander around a little bit in this blog post. I've been painting baseboards with oil base paint, and I think the paint fumes must be getting to my brain. I decided they needed a new coat of paint because the new carpet made them look so shabby. Now I have a sore shoulder. Is that from holding a little bitty paint brush? Just wondering.

I went to the store this afternoon to buy a loaf of bread. Not just any bread, but my favorite bread--Nature's Own 12 Grain. No other bread tastes quite the same. The store was out. There were dozens of loaves of 100% Whole Wheat and some other odd varieties but no 12 Grain. I wish I could meet the person who delivers the bread. I would tell him to bring more 12 Grain. Half the time the store is out of that variety. And not just one store, but all the grocery stores in town. Telling the store manager doesn't seem to get the right response. I need to see the bread delivery person. Why are they always out of the bread I like? Just wondering.

When I went to the store, I travel a road that has a roundabout. I don't mind roundabouts if everyone using them knows what they are doing. Today on my return trip there was such a wonderful flow of traffic in the roundabout that it was like a well-conducted orchestra. However, more times than not, the traffic flow is more like having someone throw the musical instruments down a flight of stairs. Some people come to the roundabout and panic or freeze. I so wish to have a loud speaker mounted on top of my car so I can give instructions. Do you suppose that is possible? Just wondering.

Are there any things that you wonder about?

Hi Merilee, Pat here. I always wonder about the shoe in the street. We've all seen them. One shoe lying in the middle of the road. How did they get there? Was someone dangling his foot out the window and the shoe fell off? I can't believe shoes hop out of the trash truck all by themselves. Who wouldn't go back to pick up their shoe?
Just wondering.

Pat,
That's a good one. I know I put a pair of shoes on top of my car once while I was loading some other things in the car. After I got all the other stuff loaded, I drove off, forgetting about the shoes. A little ways down the road, I suddenly saw something out of the corner of my eye and remembered the shoes. I went back and found them--one in the middle of the road, the other on the side of the road. Maybe some people just don't realize what happened or didn't bother to go back.

Merrillee, I always wonder why that 12-grain bread is so much better than whole wheat! LOL (Seriously, I love it!)

LOL, Pat!! That's always baffled me, too. :)

Yes, Missy,
What are the twelve grains?

I can think of
1. Wheat
2. Barley
3. Rye
4. Oats
5. Flax

Anybody have a package handy?

Oh, and does anybody else make up explainations for the words we have to type in for verification?

Mine today is fingedil which I think is a very tiny dill pickle.
