and some not so important.

First the important:  Seein’ as how my last post was a whole week ago, you must surely have read it by now, so this is a very timely addendum (addition?, PS?) to that blog in which I theorized that a strap across the back of the ankles makes one’s ankles look so much thinner and altogether more beautiful.  I found proof this week.  I saw someone interview Ivanka Trump.  I could see Ivanka’s legs, knees to toes,  and she was wearing shoes with a strap on the back.  You wouldn’t believe how thin and beautiful her ankles appeared.  Yes, girlfriends, shell out that extra $15 for that extra touch to a pair of flip-flops.  The illusion was perfect – outside side, inside side, front side, and back side.  I haven’t had a chance to see what the strap would do for Hillary since she seems to prefer her ankles covered by pants legs.

Too bad she didn’t use a strap across her heel about twenty years ago.  It might have contributed a little good to America’s sex scene and added a bit of legitimacy to her love of women’s rights .  That might be a bit vague to some of you; if it is, that’s probably best.

Now that the important stuff is said, I have nothing left to say.  Except that some of you might not be praying desperately enough to get me back regularly.  But I might be hard put to stay off politics if I get back too much.  And I’m “just not quite there yet.”  Oh, I loved it!  What a sense of tongue-in-cheek, humor, and Ronald Reagan memories.  Too bad we have to take all the fun out of our political scene and replace it with “just a mistake and won’t happen again.”  Commanders in Chief, like doctors, need to set a higher bar.  Who knows one “short circuit” might cost four lives or even more!

I’m holding a hot potato!  Here it comes, catch it!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Well, aren’t you having fun? And it was a fun post. Those of us with long memories and a little experience — stretching back to Arkansas and cattle futures — are laughing right along with you.

    i enjoyed the hot potato reference. We used to play those circle games in school: “hot potato,” “button, button, who’s got the button?” and “poor kitty.” Then we got old and sophisticated, and played rock, paper, scissors. That might not be a bad way to choose a President, this time around. Rock, paper, scissors: best of three. Granted, that would cut us voters out of the equation, but still….

    I hope all’s well, there. It’s ok here, except it is hotter than the proverbial $2 pistol. It has to be the same up there, except I was hearing about rain in the Texas panhandle, maybe. It won’t reach here: not yet. Maybe next week. It had better hurry. My rain barrel’s about empty.

    Good to see you!

      Thanks for catching my hot potato. It cooled some in your hands. I could use some cooling off myself. I think I hear rain. Let me check…No, but it was cloudy a couple hours ago. Why is it that “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” I so much more often true than “where there’s cloud there’s rain?” Save the lecture on cause and effect. Some things are very inconsistent —bringing me back to politics. .. On a nicer note I have to get up at six because my girls are being brought over so the other Grandm can go to work. I played “hotter-colder” with them last week. It was the first time I had thought of that game in years.

        Wait. What? Do you have a new computer, or are you using your tablet? Whatever, I smiled to see you again so soon. I accidentally slept in after the cat got me up at 4:30 — now, it’s time for work! have a good day!

          Last night, on the kindle; today, at the library. My granddaughter did give me a computer. I can’t figure out heads or tails about it. It is a HP. I’ve been doing some research online here and I see a lot of complaints from others who can get online but can’t get the web addresses to load. So I’m wasting lots of time trying. My kindle is get by for some comments, but so small it is very tiring for me to read.

    Oneta, I think you’re in the feisty stage of life.
