Opinion quotes

Check out other Alphabe-Thursday's at Jenny's blog.

I had a hard time coming up with an O post.  I went with quotes, a couple of them are naughty but taken in context, hopefully they are good to go, ha!

"When a man gives his opinion he’s a man.  When a woman gives her opinion, she’s a bitch" by Bette Davis

"You’re entitled to your negative opinions but talk slowly; I only have two middle fingers to go around" by Rachel Wolchin

"And it's my opinion, and that's only my opinion, you are a lunatic. Just because there are a few hundred other people sharing your lunacy with you does not make you any saner. Doomed eh?'  by Oleg Kiselev 

This one was too good to pass up.

"I have opinions of my own -- strong opinions -- but I don't always agree with them" by George W. Bush

Too soon

Magellan and I did some shopping last week.  I'm saving pictures as some of what I bought is perfect for Alphabe-Thursday, ha!

Anyhow, this store sells about everything.  I bought some fall decorations since I'm lacking in them.

Then what do my wondering eyes see?  Christmas Decorations!   They have aisles and aisles that they already started putting out things for Christmas.  Unbelievable, huh? In August, hmph.

The really sick thing is I couldn't help but look at them lol.  However, I was proud and didn't succumb to buying least for now.

Memorial Service - Nursing Home

Check out other Alphabe-Thursdays at Jenny's blog.

I missed a week so I'm going to do M & N together.

The end of July they had a Memorial Service at the Nursing Home.  I hadn't been back their since mom died in March.  It felt pretty strange walking in.

It was a lovely service in the chapel.  The deacon spoke and everyone that had a loved one that had passed was able to get up and speak about them a little.  They had a man that I saw frequently when they had entertainment sing.  I had to laugh when he sang Amazing Grace.  My mom loved that song and if she would have been there she would have sung right along with him, ha! 

They had a little tree with lights that they put the names of all the residents that passed.

They served refreshments when it was over.  I got to see a few of the residents that I used to speak with especially one woman I talked to a lot.  I was happy I got to talk to her at least one last time.  It was so nice to see her and she told me how much she missed mom.  I was a little sad I didn't get to see my favorite nurse.

However, I'm going to donate my mother's clothes to the nursing home. So, I might still get the chance. I've got them already to go, I don't know why I haven't taken them yet but I will have to do that soon.

One of my dinner friends works at a Home Depot.  There is an IHop very close and Magellan and I met her for lunch/brunch one day. 

After we ate, Magellan had to buy some things from Home Depot.  I had no intention of buying anything but I saw a lantern that I liked for the patio. It's funny how that happens sometimes.  Ha!!
