APHORISM- Do you know what it is?


1. The nicest thing about the future is . . . that it always starts tomorrow.
2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.
4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.
6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?
7. Business conventions are important. . .because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.
8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?
9. Scratch a cat . . . and you will have a permanent job.
10. No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy who wants to buy a car.
11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.
12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m. - like, it could be the right number.
13. No one ever says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.
14. I've reached the age where 'happy hour' is a nap.
15. Be careful about reading the fine print. . . . there's no way you're going to like it.
16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos & large boobs.
(And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)
18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than in a Yugo.
19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you're probably dead.
20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind . . . . and the ones that mind don't matter.
21. Life isn't tied with a bow . . . . . . . . but it's still a gift.

We continue to explore the surrounding areas.  The other day we went to Pinetop/Lakeside.  The views are breathtaking.  It is a quaint mountain town.  All of the business's are tucked into the pines and everything is soo rustic. This is home to the White Mountain Apache Reservation.  Naturally, there is a casino.  It too fits into the landscape without being obtrusive. Hubby made a donation but eventually came away a winner.  I spent my time curled up in a comfy chair in a sunny courtyard reading - I am not much of a gambler. Casinos are casinos but the first thing I noticed were the ashtrays everywhere and the smell of smoke.  It's been quite a while since I've walked into any public place and smelled smoke.

Speaking of smoke we have had a couple of days of smokey air  from a fire nearby.  It is so dry here  they have closed some of the county roads to everybody except for homeowners.  I spotted a sign on the highway the other day.  It was a very professional sign posted outside a business.  It read



I am not kidding.  It made us laugh but also made us think about how devastating those fires can be.  About ten years ago there was a huge fire not far from here and a whole town was decimated.  We've been up close and personal to forest fires and you cannot believe how quickly a whole hillside can go up in flames with just a spark.  It's like watching a Hollywood movie except it's real and very frightening. We and everybody else are keeping fingers crossed for some monsoonal moisture.

Not 50 Shades

Hubby and I ROFL

Bill and his wife Blanche go to the state fair every year, And every year Bill would say, "Blanche, I'd like to ride in that helicopter" Blanche always replied, "I know Bill, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, And fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"

One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said, "Blanche, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance" To this, Blanche replied, "Bill that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks" The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny! But if you say one word it's fifty dollars." Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went.

The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, But still not a word...When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!" Bill replied,
"Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something when Blanche fell out, But you know, Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"

Monday Merriment Redoux

Just a few little tidbits that made me giggle.

Women and cats will do as they please, dogs and men should just relax and get used to it.

The reason so many politicians try so hard to get re-elected is because they are afraid they will have to live under the laws they've passed.

I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming.  Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries.  Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward, looked into the cart and asked sweetly,
"So which six items would you like to buy?"

Here's another that I can't wait to use.

If I'm a pain in your a***, use more lube.

Lexan for Sale and Other Ramblings

We have been going on what my husband calls our daily adventures.  Yesterday's trip was to a town called Springerville.The terrain goes from pines to scrub pines to desert to high desert brown.  For miles there is absolutely nothing to see but the ribbon of the road and nothingness.  I always feel a little spooky when traveling through terrain like that.  Must have been a past life and a fear of the unknown. Have experienced that same feeling when traveling through portions of Montana and South Dakota.  The picture is the ruins of the Casa Malpais Prehistoric Indian Ruins dating back to 1250.  The site was inhabited until about 1400. The town of Springerville was founded in 1870 and it is 42 miles from Show Low and 13 miles from the New Mexico border (enough history lesson for today).  The drive there seemed much longer probably for the reasons mentioned above.  When you experience the desolation of the surrounding area I wonder why anyone ever settled there in the first place.  But I guess that could be said of any place initially.

Last night we had some adult fun.  He began by plying the leather paddle on my backside and the flogger on the front side and backside and then we went on to other pleasures. We both slept extremely well. Imagine that.

This morning I dangled the lexan paddle in his face.  He couldn't resist the invitation.  After about ten swats, I've decided to put the lexan paddle up for sale.  Is anyone interested?

Today was another adventure to the Apache Reservation.  That's for another post.  Until then see you later for more Aimless Ramblings.

A Subbie's Prayer

Just a little ditty that rolled around in my head.

Life is so good I can't stand it.  No, that's not true.  I can stand it.  I actually absolutely love what we are doing.  I thought I would like it but I love it.  We are in a beautiful place.  The weather is so perfect, 80's during the day and 50's at night and the sun shines  every day.  How lucky can you get. I think I mentioned previously it reminds me so much of  an area we used to live.   But just like that place in Colorado, it snows here in the winter.  That's okay because by then we will be long gone.

We have met some wonderful people and are busier socially than we have been in years.  There is some activity every day and if you are bored it's because you want to be. Over the weekend, there was a town festival lasting three days that had all kinds of activities to meet everybody's taste.  My husband really enjoyed the car show.  He can't believe how many old cars there are here and in pristine condition. Today's outing took us to two beautiful lakes in the area.  One prettier than the other and great hiking trails to explore another day.

 It is very dry here though and the fire danger is extremely high.  There are absolutely no campfires allowed.  There actually was an announcement at Show Low Days that no smoking was allowed anywhere.  If smokers wanted a cigarette they were told to go to their car. I keep my fingers cross that some uncaring individual doesn't flick a cigarette butt out the window.  So far, we have not experienced any residual smoke from the fires in the surrounding areas.  Monsoon season is due next month so until then rain is very doubtful and everything will continue to be tinder dry.

I will share more pictures as the summer moves on.  We haven't had any spankings lately.  Must get up to speed.  See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.

 A STRONG WOMAN is one who feels deeply      
   and loves fiercely
Her tears flow just as abundantly as her


A STRONG WOMAN is both soft and powerful

  She is both practical and spiritual.....

A STRONG WOMAN in her essence is a 

  Gift to the World.

I am not sure where this comes from but my niece had it posted on her facebook page. She is a strong woman and  often has some great things but this one especially spoke to me.

My Turn

There have been several posts lately about loving marriages.  This post is about my marriage. It is not perfect but it's pretty darn close.  My husband is by far the best man for me. He is my lover, confidant, supporter, friend. I can go on and on with many more adjectives but don't want to make everybody else jealous. He knows me very well just like I know him (but once in a while we still surprise each other).  My heart still thumps when I look at him and I don't know how I was so lucky to meet and marry this great guy.  We have seen each other through some tough times and have always made it through with love and laughter. 

We are growing old together and it is such a comforting feeling to know that when I wake up in the morning he is right there beside me.  Not only that but he thinks I am still beautiful when even I don’t want to look at myself in the mirror until I wash my face and brush my hair and teeth.

When I wrote a post about him back in January ( BFF we were in a brick and mortar home.  The very next month we left that behind and took to the road in a 32 foot RV.  We have been together constantly since then and everything I wrote is still true. We are still laughing, loving and holding hands as we travel life’s roads together.  With luck there are many highways and byways ahead of us and I am going to be traveling them with my handsome loving husband for many years to come.

Life Is Good

The funk is gone.  Yeah.  I thank those of you that sent suggestions.  They were great and I used some of them.  In retrospect I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that neither of us had felt like ourselves for more than a week and there had been no playtime. 

The "toys" have been brought out of storage,  put to good use and are all in good working order. My attitude has been adjusted and we are back on track.  Life is good.
