Linda's Letters

Saturday, May 19, 2012

OK Folks, this one's for all of you who think you are losing your minds and then feel better after hearing about someone else who is losing it.

It was two weeks ago on Sunday. Harry and I went up to the church to tear down the backdrop from the Ladies Spring Fling luncheon about 1:30 p.m. We needed my keys to get into the social hall. When we locked up, Harry handed my keys to me and said, "Remember. I gave your keys back to you."

We went back to my mom's, played some Scat, had dinner, did the dishes, played some more Scat, had dessert and went home about 8:30 p.m.

Some of Linda's Purse facts:

*Purse Fact #1-Sometimes you CAN have a purse that's too big.

How do you know when your purse is too big? When you can't find your cell phone.

We lost another piece of our hearts last week.

Well Boys and Girls, this week we're going to talk about my favorite topic-Food!

No, not what I like to eat, but what the Presidents liked to eat.

Marilyn Frable of Kunkletown was the guest speaker at the last Eldred Township Historical Society meeting and used us for guinea pigs. She teaches cooking classes at Northampton Community College and gave us a trial presentation of "A Visit to the White House Kitchen," upcoming summer classes for fourth and fifth graders.

First she gave us a quiz.

This morning as I was watching "Good Morning America," I heard this snippet about President Obama's statement he made at The Associated Press luncheon about the use of a word former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney said to describe Paul Ryan's budget. The word was "marvelous."

There were these three old ladies discussing the trials and tribulations of getting older.

One said, "Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand while standing in front of the refrigerator, and I can't remember whether I need to put it away or start making a sandwich."

The second lady chimed in with, "Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing of the stairs and can't remember whether I was on my way up or on my way down."

Yesterday I opened up the mail and found an envelope containing Invisible Magic Dust.

No joke!

Domino the Great sent it to me.

The other day I heard this dirty phrase uttered in my presence. It really set my teeth on edge. I wanted to take a bar of soap and wash the gal's mouth out.

I'm going to try and tell you what it is, if my editor doesn't censor it.

Are you ready?

I'll whisper it.

spring cleaning

Oh, I know it isn't a dirty phrase to many, but in my world, it ranks right up there with "ironing" and "diet."

I guess I can't help but remember the spring cleaning of my grandmother's day.

So I get this email that tells me March 8 is International Women's Day and that I am to celebrate my strong, independent, confident, beautiful self.

(Snort laugh. Yeah. That's me. Not.)

Evidently this Toronto author, Caird Urquhart, is providing all the answers to help me feel beautiful, confident, independent and strong in her new self-help, self-empowerment book, "30 Ways to Better Days: How To Rally After You've Been Dumped."

I played the lottery last Saturday.

This is not the norm for me. I rarely play it. But I keep having these fantasies of being rich and the only way I know that could happen is if I have a distant unknown relative who dies and leaves me all his/her money or I win the lottery.

I'm pretty sure there are no rich distant relatives, so I guess it'll have to be the lottery.

And you know that old saying, "You have to play it to win it."

I went into the Turkey Hill near my house, and asked for five machine picks for the Power Ball.
