Why Is Grandpa So Happy?

October 30, 2014

Every family has it’s traditions, those things you do every year without really knowing why. In my family it’s St. Valentine’s Day. From as far back as I can remember my family has always gathered on that day for the Annual St. Valentine’s Day Variety Show. Everyone was required to participate whether they had talent or not, Uncle Jack would always juggle and Grandma Amy sang Amazing Grace. This year’s event was to be extra special as we would all be welcoming my brother’s new wife and her four year old daughter, Lizzie, to the family.

My brother called me the next day to ask for my help. Lizzie kept saying grandpa’s smile was broken and he didn’t understand what she meant. When I asked her, she said whenever anyone talked to him he had to put his finger in his ear to make his smile work. I explained to my brother that what she saw was grandpa adjusting the volume on his hearing aids Altrincham. He always turns them off during the variety show and just smiles at everyone. We let Lizzie color him a get well card anyway.

Lessons to be Learned

October 28, 2014

Emily had been taking care of her father at home for many years, but his health had failed so much she decided it was best for him to go into a nursing home. The nursing home was bright and cheerful along with a caring staff. He had good meals to eat along with snacks and could take part in any of the offered activities.

Emily would come to visit her father every day and would take walks with him down the hallways. One day Emily noticed that her father was not wearing his hearing aids Rochdale and after searching for them finally found them under his bed. She cleaned them off, and put in new batteries, and helped to put them in his ears. She wrote out instructions for the care and protections of them for the staff, and never had anymore problems.

Dealing With Tech Issues in a Modern World

October 14, 2014

Invoice pads save businesses. Two Sparrows Productions is in rural South Dakota; not a bad place, but when the power goes down it takes a day or two for it to come back on, and you know that the power will go down at least three times a year, usually during a snow storm. It does not exactly help that reception is a bit spotty even for satellite communications. It may not be technologically backwards but it is not exactly tech friendly either.

This means that the fax machine is our best friend as it seems that the telephone is never down, making it the best bet for getting anything through. Thus, we order something odds are good that we will write it down, fax it, and then confirm the order by calling up. Without access to inventory sheets it would be impossible to run our business. At least it is easy to order the pads!

Stop Thief!

October 4, 2014

I was doing my usual jaunt around the market yesterday when all of a sudden, just as I was about to leave with my 6 bags of shopping, a youth ran past at me at full pelt knocking me to the floor. My shopping went everywhere and I banged my head on a shelf as I went down. Some nice passers by helped me collect my shopping together and helped me to my feet. It turns out that the youth who’d knocked me down was leaving so fast because he’d stolen a pack of incontinence pads. What a strange thing to steal I thought. I mean, back in my day when I were a lad we’d steal alcohol and maybe some food. My how times have changed.  They managed to catch the lad though. Turns out he was having an affair with an older lady who liked him to dress up as a baby so she could properly mother him. Like I said, my how times have changed.

Garden Glory

September 9, 2014

I have a week until my new restaurant Garden Glory opens and I am feeling frantic. Everything is ready except for the ladies rest room. I have spent hours researching, purchasing and placing every piece of furniture and every fixture in this restaurant and I have one item left to purchase….the sink in the lady’s loo. I want everything to look perfect so I am a woman on a mission and today is the day that the sink must be found and bought.

My cell phone buzzes and I quickly answer. It is my friend Gabby. She knows my sink dilemma and how busy I am so I know she must have an idea for me. “Recycled glass media” are the three words she speaks to me before hanging up. I do a quick internet search and immediately know that I have found my sink. Recycled glass is my answer!

My Husband Loves What I Did For Him!

August 28, 2014

I admit it: sometimes I let myself go. But hey, with a horse farm to run and two kids to raise, can you blame me? Well, the truth is I don’t feel good about myself when I don’t look as good as I can.

My dear husband has been patient, but recently I could tell he was missing our dating days, when I basically dressed to wow him and everyone who saw me. I was talking with one of my girlfriends and she mentioned modellenfotografie. I hesitated at first, but eventually I figured I had nothing to lose.

I am so glad I did it! The photographs came out fantastic if I do say so myself. The best part was my husband’s reaction, of course. He couldn’t stop smiling for the rest of the day! That night, he took me the finest restaurant across town and we had one of the best dates we’ve ever had.
