I unloaded the dishwasher putting containers and lids on the cabinet. Now I need to match them. The problem is that although they are the same size and look compatible, sometimes they are not. If I match certain lids some some containers, I get a combination that leaks!

I have never had a Kerr glass jar and a Kerr lid of matching size that leaked. Or did I? I guess I don’t know that for sure because I do not add liquid then turn it over to drink. But I don’t think they leak.

What do I think? You know me and my questioning cause and effect. I like certainty and I like to be able to prove it. I guess that is one reason I do not trust the covid vaccine. I know that a vaccine is supposed to be a guarantee against a particular disease. However, I watch for effect, I see a whole lot of things that make me vascillate regarding my trust. If I drink will I get a lot of water running down my neck?

I like glass better than plastic. I don’t think it is apt to get nicks that I don’t know about. In other words, have side effects that haven’t shown up on the last hundred years. Of course, it does break, but then I know better than to use it. And nobody has ever told me I have to use it. If I were in a desert and needed water badly, would I use a cracked container to hold some water! You bet.

But right now, I’ll call the whole thing off, in other words, I’ll put a lid on it. 😀


Instructions in SoCS is that our writing is to be unplanned and with little, if any, editing. I guess just see how our brain rolls. Anyway I’m not proofreading. Just laying it all out 😀 I’m also sending along a special thanks to Linda. It takes a lot of work to do what she does.

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...

    Been there, done that too many times.

    I had some of those semi-disposable containers that looked the same, but nothing fit. Then my frustration lessened when I saw the nearly invisible imprint of Ziploc and Rubbermaid. I felt so dumb, but life suddenly got a bit easier. But now, we just use those containers for food prep and serving bowls. But you bring me back. I have not canned anything in some time. We used to make sweet pickles (using a milk churn for the brining and such), pear preserves, muscadine jelly, and homemade sauerkraut. Other than muscadine jelly not being in stores, we often thought it was a lot of work for the amount that we saved, but when it came to the canning, it became a family affair.

      Sounds like too much work, but it did make for some unforgettable nostalgia. I am glad for the cheap plastics for refrig. storage that stack in such neat stacks. However, they are hard to dry in the machine. I never partook of much canning even in my grandmother’s house. I do remember some corn husking, bean stringing, and pea podding. Now I know I made some pretty novel verbs. 😀

    Lids, like socks, take mysterious journeys…

    Did you get your vaccine though? And the booster?

    • oneta hayes says:

      Nix. Not until Fauci finds one that does not also require a mask. Or is it a booster and two masks now?

      • pranabaxom says:

        Why are you risking your and others’ life?
        Even your hero and his family had taken the vaccine, albeit surreptitiously, and asking his followers to take the vaccine.

        Well, what can I say?
        So you believe only what you want to believe and for other facts invent excuses😂
