“…THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS”

  Yesterday I actually got off my dead behind and did something GOOD for me.  I had received a flyer in the mail a few weeks ago about a women’s health fair to be held at the medical building behind our hospital…The asked that you sign up ….sooooo..before I could think twice about it, I signed up online…and yesterday I attended “This One’s For The Girls”..health fair.

..They had diabetes screenings(I passed), sleep apnea info, (not me), blood pressure taken ( 117/70), information on eye health (definitely needed that), nutrition info (REALLY needed that), massage therapy (didn’t do that, the line went around the room), a fake breast to see if you could feel the “lumps”..(Now that one made me a little uncomfortable…I prefer NOT to massage any breast but my own, thank you very much..BUT, I did find all the lumps!!!)

They also had a bone density screening…I signed up for that, but after I filled out their form saying I had been diagnosed with Osteopenia, the told me I didn’t qualify because I had already been diagnosed…WHATEVER!. They had free samples of things (SCORE!)..There was also free food, and a young lady was even selling handbags ..BUT….. what REALLY caught my eye was this display..

SOUVENIER PHOTOS….WITH PROPS TO WEAR …NOW, THIS IS LIKE CANDY TO A BABY FOR ME!!100_9525

 

There were lots of women “buddies” who were getting their photo taken together..They would pick out their “prop”, go into  a little photo booth…and CLICK!!…a FREE goofy picture to remember the event !!  I didn’t have a buddy with me, but you all know me well enough to know that I just CANNOT WALK AWAY FROM THIS!!!!!

I KNOW, I KNOW…WHATEVER YOU’RE THINKING, I AGREE WITH YOU…….

BUT LET IT NEVER BE SAID THAT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO  HAVE A GOOD TIME!!!!!

 

Now that I have further shown that I LOVE to dress up and play different characters, I shall segue to the birds in our backyard,  and our quest to attract them…

McGuyver is quite handy…and over a period of the last 30 years he has been piecing together a Purple Martin Condo…..(a huge apartment for many Martin families,as in BIRDS,  to live in )…Well, he finally finished it and it is ready to paint…

….I do believe painting this dwelling is MY job.   The big problem is exactly how to put this thing at least 10’ off the ground on a pole…and be able to hinge that pole so it can be brought down and cleaned yearly…McGuyver is working on that..HOWEVER,  if it takes as long to get it mounted as it did to build it, we will be watching the Purple Martins in their new condo from our wheelchairs on the deck.

A sure sign that Spring is on the way…. The Cardinals are getting very “frisky”, and suddenly seem to like dining together at the “La Cave Café”….

A ROMANTIC TABLE FOR TWO BY THE WINDOW, PLEASE…..

(You may notice the light snow falling in these pictures…AGAIN!)

  So, this weekend has been fairly exciting..at least for “one of the girls”….I had a great time at the health fair, and learned some beneficial things about women’s health..Number one thing I learned???  I learned that NOBODY knows your body’s “normal” better than you.. (this also applies to men.)  If you think something is “just not right”..GET IT CHECKED OUT!!!! Better to error on the safe side of health issues.   The words you NEVER want to hear are ,” If you had only come in sooner….”  Enough said….except for…..

“THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS!!!!!”

  3. I was going to honor your just for Girls request, but then I noticed that Donna was at the restaurant, so she wouldn't catch looking at any just for girly pictures, so what the hell, I charged in there, why were the pictures taken in the restroom, see the sign in your picture,and two, I almost blew a mouthful of Miller High Life all over the laptop when I saw your pictures, luckily I turned my head and scared the two dogs away from my chair with my sputtering and coughing and dripping suds all over them, not to mention a tee shirt I could have gotten another day out of.Now there's a picture I wish I had for my blog.Anyway it wasn't a bad post after all. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna......
