Mine was….. Good Humor Toasted Almond
Baskin & Robbins : Black Cherry or Pistachio
But I was AN ODDBALL. I liked fish sandwiches instead of hamburgers. Onion rings instead of french fries. Orange soda instead of coke!
in order to keep my blood pressure down and my chest pains to a minimum, all i have to say today is ~
"Whatever" is a slang term meaning "Whatever you say." The term is also used to dismiss a previous statement and express indifference. It is sometimes only written as w/e, where the / indicates the beginning of the second word.
On the TV show All in the Family which premiered in 1971, 'whatever' was frequently used by the main character, Archie Bunker, as a dismissive response to his wife, Edith Bunker.
It was prevalent among the affluent "valley girls" of California in the 1980s, is known to be offensive as in saying "I don't think what you are saying is relevant" (Clueless), according to slang expert Tony Thorne, who first recorded it there. It was a term used by WAGs - the wives and girlfriends of movie stars and producers but picked up as part of the code of the 'valley girls'.
i wish i had more to share with you this week, like some awesome recipe or a decorating tip …… but it is all about work right now and trying to keep our heads above water …… but even with that, i do stop to smell the flowers … so here is a picture of our crepe myrtle that is on it’s second season. they are all over north texas now ~ and oh~so pretty … but i have to admit that i think the red bud trees are still my fave in early spring ! the wonderful thing about crepe myrtles is that they bloom a long time !
and by the way …. remember in a previous post i showed you our baby birds in a nest in the asparagus fern out back ? …….. and unfortunately the snake got them and mama …. well ….. we have more babies out on the front porch now …. and they have made it longer …. I pray that these little ones make it !!
here’s a quick peek ……
not sure how they fit in that itty bitty nest, but they are cute as can be !
have a lovely week!
