The Secret of the CAT Scan et al.

A couple of years ago, I found myself getting a CAT scan. If you're unfamiliar, it is the one where they inject the dye into your veins and slide you through the spinning donut. As they are getting ready to inject the dye, the technician said to me, "You will probably feel very warm from the dye."

That was only a half-truth. I got very warm all right, but it zeroed in on one spot. Right between my legs.

I didn't say anything to them about it until exactly one month later, I was in the hospital and being wheeled down to get another CAT scan when I said to the little girl pushing me, "CAT scans are weird, they make your girly bits really hot."

"That only happens to some people," she said, "One day we had a teenage boy in here and, as soon as we started injecting the dye, he screamed, 'My balls are on fire! My balls are on fire!"

So if you're ever told you are going to be getting a CAT scan, be warned. You may get some heat you were not expecting. This has been a public service announcement.
My New Do

I don't know if it was spring fever or I was just missing Big John and wanted to make him happy, but I did something drastic. This is what my hair looked like when we got married 15 years ago.
I think he has a thing for redheads, check out his dog.

So yesterday, I went through this torture.
Check out my adorable DIL in the mirror taking the picture.

And ended up with this today.
I'm diggin' it. I feel very Bohemian. "I'm just a poor boy from a poor family" Sorry, I'm a little manic today, as you can tell by all the little random posts.

Help a Girl Out

Does anybody out there know where I can find that commercial, I can't locate it on YouTube, it's for some kind of peanut butter. It was made back in the 70's I think. It's the one where the kid says, "You're weird!" then the guy says "Yeah, but I make a great peanut butter sandwich."

I don't even remember which peanut butter it was, it may have been that Goober peanut butter that had the jelly in with it.

Every day one of my kids says to me, "You're weird." And I always reply with "Yeah, but I make a great peanut butter sandwich." They never get it because they haven't seen the commercial.

So if you know where I can find it, or even the name of the brand of peanut butter, please let me know.


  1. I love your looks GREAT!!! You look so pretty:)
    And THANK you for the tip on the CAT scan...that would have been scary! Having your girling parts on fire while in a spinning machine. You are much braver than I am. I probably would not have been so calm!

  2. My Darling you hair is absolutely fantastic. It is funny how somethings make a full circle. You are making it hard to wait until my rotation arrives, very hot and I don't mean the dye.

    Always and forever Love You

    The dye makes me feel like I need to pee.

  4. Hell no, we won't go...Curly that is! LOL (ur fabulous daughter)

    And about that Cat scan heat, is it good (hubba hubba) or bad (get me some ice down there) kinda heat. Just curious. LOL

  8. For Kim: The commercial ran in the 1970s and it was for Peter Pan Peanut Butter.."I'm Weird..but I make a great peanut butter sandwich"


If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. No need to point out my mistakes, I have family for that.
