Shirley strikes again

A couple of weeks back Shirley posted a video of Pharrell Williams singing "Happy". I think everyone will admit this tune makes you want to tap your toe, if not get up and dance. It stuck in my head for a couple of days until I finally downloaded the song on my Ringtone Maker and now, you got it, I dance all the way to answer the phone.  

Snow White without his seven dwarfs.  

Things have been brilliant around here.  I had my eyes examined and they were great for a person with Type 1 Diabetes. I did have an increase in my reading prescription, enough to warrant a new pair of glasses.  

Surprisingly the price has not increased that much but still out of my pocket-change budget.  I started looking at glasses online.  Have you ever ordered online? 

The exciting part is you can now upload a photo of yourself on each glasses web page to see how they would look on you.  It seems you can get frames pretty inexpensively but the progressive lens is still up there in price.  

I did find one pair that I really liked and looked good on my facial photo but darn it, I can't remember what website it was.  Dadgum it. 

Does anybody have first-hand experience with any of these sites?  

More later.

Happy Halloween

    Hope you had a Happy Halloween.  I had no trick or treaters so I have a bowl full of Tootsie Rolls (thank you Margaret) that jumped out at me in the grocery store.  And they were the good ones - the size of a thumb not a pencil. You forget how really good they are until you taste one again.  Here. Have one.  Try it.  

Speaking of old favorites:  When I was a youngish lass with long hair and girlish charm, I always used Herbal Essence in a tall green bottle.  I loved the smell and as my hair flipped around my face I would get sniffs of the delicious scent. So, after diligently searching for the old product online, I emailed Herbal Essence and asked them if it was around anywhere.  No, they wrote me back but you might like this and that, and here are some coupons.  I appreciated their reply and the coupons but still wish for that shampoo.  Do you remember it?  

This weekend my Son switched our phone plan to combine your, mine, and ours telephone bills he was paying.  We are now on ATT after being on a great PCS package.  I won't go into what took 4 hours and 2 different ATT stores to get my service, except to say they required me to buy a new phone because my old Samsung was 3G and we were on a 5G plan now.  Of course, I did not want to wait to order a new phone off the internet where I could get a better price because I want my service hooked up right away.  So I bought the new phone, and I'm still in the phase where you have to reopen each app with the password you can't remember.  

But that's not the story.  While I was sitting at the first ATT store and they were doing what they do, I looked over at the big TV playing and there was a youngish girl standing in front of a display in a drug store with those large green bottles of Herbal Essence.  This is close as I could find to the bottle I'm talking about.  

I found this picture on Ebay.  The bottle sells for $40
and if you can enlarge the writing is from Greece.

I yelped when I saw the bottles and everyone looked at me so I had to explain about the shampoo to the ATT girl who was just a glimmer in her grandmother's eye when the movie was made (original Halloween, I think) and ATT girl didn't know nor did she care about Herbal Essence's original scent. 

So that's my share ... and this
