I Tried to Wash Off Some of that Dusty Dirt
I don't know about you, but if we are expecting company, a good house cleaning is required before their arrival. So we were anticipating our first visitors from overseas and we tidied the place up real good.
The Kendalls, Mike and Sandi, showed up a bit late due to fog, but we had a great week before we sent them south to explore.
Here is me in the latest hat. I am thinking about kayaking. Actually, I am thinking how tired I would be if I was kayaking.
One place we went was Harwood's Hole, a setting for a eerie part of Lord of the Rings. VERY trippy. Under certain conditions, it would be difficult to find one's way out.
Quick plug here for Rosy Glow Chocolates in Collingwood, NZ
Best. Sweets. Ever. I just found out they have a shop in Nelson.
Now the Kendalls are on to see the world from the left hand side. We hope they have a stressless good time and will have Speights days and Champagne nights.
Back here on the homefront, if you are like us, you spruce the place up again when company departs.
So here is my point.
Under certain conditions, I really enjoy cleaning. I'm not talking about anything in the laundry department. My happy chores involve shining up a kitchen or bathroom.
I just finished in the toilet and could not be more pleased with myself.
In the Good Old US of A, the product tells you about their prowess in a word or two... Soft Scrub, Handi Wipes, 409.
Out here they have products with more ambitious monikers.
They're like really good friends who will continue to do for you, gladly.
No, no. Don't get up, I'll find the remote... Our lawn looks a bit high. I hope the noise from the mower won't disturb you. Warm facial towel, your majesty?
These products are like Simple Green with high self esteem and bent on altruism. They make me feel like I'm not even needed, but I can watch if I so desire.
However, try as I might to get some smudges out, they still show in the correct light.
My cleansing products asked me very nicely to ask Kimberly for something called MICROFIBRE!!!!!
Where has this stuff been all the while?? Great product for getting out waterspots and smudges, Polishes glass and shiny surfaces, LCD screens.
Ladies and gentlemen and all the ships at sea...Stop the Presses...
Having reviewed what I have written so far, it seems a little gay, so I will immediately shift gears and move on to another subject.
The virile seed of my loins, Brandon, and the seed of somebody else's loins, Vanessa, tell us the child forming in her loin area is to be a girl. This means Kimberly and I will be a grandmothers.
Tempest Fugit. And it fugits pretty fast. Just the same, we are farklempt all over the place.
Lastly, we are going to take attendance so we know who is actually reading these things whenever we put them out. Please just click on the comment link and type your name and city.
Wild Bill...be nice. Only vote once and you can have one other with a phony name if you insist.
