random ramblins on a friday

First bit of randomness: Yesterday, my husband and I took a short, but amusing walk to the end of our driveway to put a letter in the mailbox. There was a tree branch hanging down over the driveway with some dead leaves on it and Mike tried to jump up and grab it. It was funny because he didn’t get that far off the ground. Thinking I was some Olympic athlete, I decided to try it myself. I think I might have gotten half as far as he did. I was already laughing at myself when he decided to make a joke of me. He said “All I could see was you twisting your ankle or hurting yourself and looking at me like it was my fault.” If you could have seen the face he made (imitating what I would have done), you would have LOL’d too.

Randomness #2: Speaking of #2…stopped at the light in front of McDonald’s – nice big patch of green grass…three black dogs on leashes. One bowed over taking a massive poo. “I’d like fries with that!” I don’t think the woman was gonna scoop it up either…

Third random thing: I made my first post to craigslist a couple of weeks ago and someone is already trying to hoo-doo me! I had an email asking if my road bike for sale was in good condition, so I emailed the person back and immediately, I get this response…

Hello!
thanks for getting back to me let’s do like this, actually now I’m not
in town for now, I came to visit my family so i wont be able to meet
with you to see the item but am ok with the price as seen on the
advert. I don’t mind to give you $50 to withdraw the advert for you to
see how serious i am in the transaction, i will contact my secretary
to issuing a Check out to you and when you received the check  I will
make arrangement for pick up. So get back to me with below details to
be on the check asap.

And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be overnight to you
and i will let you know when its mailed out. I need you to be honest
with the sale as I am a God fearing person.Note you don’t need to
worry about shipping the items for me as soon as you have the check
and have the check cash my shipper will come over for pick up.

Thanks
God Bless

So, thanks but no thanks! I can’t even type that fast, so there’s no way this is real. Seller’s beware!

4th and final random thing: While watching the doggie poo, I hear this story on the radio and have to laugh – http://money.msn.com/business-news/article.aspx?feed=AP&date=20120706&id=15303795. AIG wants interest on an overpayment they made on their taxes back in the 90s when they still owe the government about $17 billion.

If all of us would just behave ourselves, wouldn’t the world be lovely?
