Random Tweets


Does anyone else get a weird feeling when that little sign pops up on Facebook and says that So-and-so  is following you?


Have you ever been talking to someone and she's looking at you with a fixed expression but doesn't really seem to be hearing you and you have a real feeling she's doing her Kegel exercises . . .


(While finding that link for Kegel exercises, I thought I saw a link to Kegel exercise classes -- now there's an interesting thought . . but it was just that my glasses needed cleaning.)


Received notice of our high school 55th reunion. Several of those involved are people I've blocked or un-friended on Facebook because of their ultra Conservative (and in my opinion downright ugly) posts. 


We've never yet been to a reunion -- this doesn't seem a good time to begin.

Returned form, saying unable to attend. 

In space for INFORMATION TO SHARE wrote Not dead yet.

Such colorful birds. As an aside - the Pilates studio I go to now offers a class for "male kegel." Hmmmmm.

EXCELLENT PHOTOS, WOMAN!!! I love your sense of humor!

Ms. A said...

By the way, I love your snow, as long as it remains "your snow". It sure is lovely.

Thérèse said...

Quite a humor Vicky but you are right: "not dead yet" seems a good way to deal with the whole thing when you answer the invitation.

still breathing...
and probably the best decision...oy...would not be worth the argument if you did go...

Littel tweets and chirps. Such a beautiful cardinal, their color against the snow!
Yeah I got invitations also from 1959 and can't get the urge specially when pictures of my fellow classmates are sent my way. Why the heck do I want to hang out with a bunch of old folks?

June said...

"Not dead yet" might also be a reason not to attend that reunion. I have attended only one class reunion, the 10th high school reunion, and it was freakin' deadly. Led me to believe that I might have been invisible throughout high school.
I love that cardinal picture. So bright!

Those little red birds really show up in the snow. I don't blame you for turning down the reunion. I would at this stage, even though I'm not aware of any rabid political leanings amongst my peers.

I've never been to a reunion either, high school or college. I figure I already keep up with friends I want to see and don't care about the rest of them.

Hope you don't mind my borrowing your "not dead yet" for the next update.

Help yourself, Carolyn -- I borrowed it from Monty Python.

Frances said...

Vicki, those birds are beautiful!

I am still not part of the facebook world.

I have never been to any school reunion.

So many other ways to fill one's waking hours.

We don’t have school reunions in France – in a way I wish they did as I have not seen these people since I went to school – I would not know any of them I am sure but there were a couple of real sweet kids. Now for the snow in your pictures – is it this year or last year snow? We have not had any yet.
Your birds are so lovely. We have 5 birdfeeders in the back yard that we had to constantly fill up with seeds as there always were so many birds of many types. Then for the last 6 weeks or so – nothing, not a bird. The seeds are there, nothing has changed but the birds are gone. This is the first time it happens to us. As this ever happened to you? I wonder what it could be.

Vicki Lane said...

This was yesterday's snow -- mostly melted mow.

As for the disappearing birds -- that's strange -- I wonder if a hawk or a feral cat has staked out that territory and is scaring the birds away.

Make sure the bird seed hasn't gotten wet and moldy -- that could be keeping the birds away.

Love the bird pics! I laughed out loud at Jim Egerton's response stating "Why the heck do I want to hang out with a bunch of old folks?" Vicki, I enjoy reading your blogs....also, began reading "Under the Skin" yesterday. Vicki, my favorite of your books, at this time, is "Art's Blood."

Vicki Lane said...

KL -- So nice to hear someone liked ART'S BLOOD! Somehow it's always seemed like the red-headed stepchild of the lot -- I think perhaps because the cover's kind of blah.
