Hey

The weather is changing and we might be a melting pot tomorrow.  I can't wait. 

I spent a lot of time shopping today.  I had some smelly people behind me in line at the check out.  They smelled like mothballs. 

I tried not to smell them but they kept on smelling.  I turned my head to the right and then to the left until I got dizzy and they just kept on making me smell them.  It was a long line up.  By the time I was in front I felt like I was going to faint.  It smelled like the stuff my dad used to put in our outhouse in the the summer to kill the smell ...Creosote I think it was called.

I remember my dad used to spray DDT in the outhouse.  Now it's a no no.  Hasn't killed me so far. It was lovely going into the outhouse after he sprayed....no more spiders... and little creatures.  You could just sit for awhile and enjoy last years Sears catalogue before you crunched a few pages up to wipe your ass.

HA! That brings back many memories of the outhouse at my grandmother's. One was my aunt told my oldest brother she was going to wipe his butt with a corn cob - OMG - he went running and screamin'! :)

And, oh yeah, the Sears catalog. lol

Best was when my mom bought a crate of peaches. Then we would get all the peach papers in the outhouse and they were so much softer!!

My daddy used to throw lime down the outhouse holes, but used DDT also to kill the critters. We didn't have a Sears catalog, we had Montgomery Wards or Monkey Wards as we called it back then. Ah--those were the good old days.
