E-Mail Nut on the Loose

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it myself a couple times
unintentionally...but this one is real, and it's
important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list.
If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They only want to see you naked.
I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid!

I dunno, Kacey, if he's really really cute can I pretend to believe him ????

LOL I hate e-mail forwards too, but that was pretty cute.

Kacey.
I hope you told him you hate to dance alone! It takes 2 to tango!

I get so many emails...if the jokes are long, I just delete them.
If I find them really funny, then only I'll send them on to brighten someone's day.
Laughter is very good medecine for whatever ails you.

Too late for me. Happened to me yesterday. The guy was wearing a white coat, though, and I ALWAYS trust medico types wearing white coats.

Hmmmmm, my husband was just diagnosed with Lyme Disease from a tick bite he got months ago. I would have believed the guy at my front door. Live and learn. (just kidding).

Kacey, you just made me laught out loud! That was really funny.

As for the bogus warnings, I usually go to "Snopes" and see if they're true before I send them...I've gotten some doosies!

I don't mind the clever forwards, just the weird ones.
I needed this laugh Kacey!

Hi Kacey ! how is your Sunday the 10th going ? All okay on the home front ? Is hubby our golfing ? What are you doing ? if you are amking a quilt, will you show us a picture ? i love handmade wedding ring quilts !!!

Oh Kacey, I am so glad to hear that someone is as finicky as I am ! Bless you ! I didn't write all those things down because I wastoo embarrassed to admit to them -- and brave you, you came right out and said, "this is how I like things done!"

An immaculate house and car and garage are important to me. I regularly de-clutter, so there isn't much, if any !

My hangers all face the same direction in the closet, and the hangers are all heavy duty acryllic with brass trim.

I organize my underwear drawers by color, and all my towels and linens/sheets are all nicely folded in their respective cabinets.

I regularly put baking soda down my kitchen sink when I run the garbage disposal so it always smells clean, and throw my trash out every night. There are disposable plastic liners in all my bathroom (and kitchen) trash cans.

You don't have to do a twice-a-year spring cleaning in my home, because it is an ongoing process ! It makes me happy to come home to a clean, well-tended, nicely taken care of home where everything is in its place.

Sounds like you are the same way !

**hugs**

Kacey
Last night with some time on my hands, I went back and read your archives from the day your granddaughter showed you how! I can see you've had a long, hard life, busy with family and travelling. Throughout your posts I can feel your pride shine through at the wonderful family you've raised.
Life has been good, but hectic, hasn't it?
I really enjoyed going back with you through time.
Love, Matty

Good Wednesday Kacey,
Tell me about your kitchen cupboards... What you don't like...
Are you willing to replace them ?

What kind of wood or paint color do you like ?

What do you think of upper cabinets with beveled glass insets ?

Do you like roll-out drawers for your base cabinets ?

What about a built-in spice rack ?
and built-in knife drawer ?

All of these things can be done, and more...

I'm REALLY good with this stuff. Of course, it'd be your money, (i'm so good at spending everyone else's in my head) but, as long as you get a good custom cabinetmaker, and have him buy the right trims to dress them up, you could end up with a luscious looking kitchen...
