Random thoughts....


I saw fried ice cream on the menu at the beach. OK, someone tell me, why would ice cream need any help at all, especially from oil? 

And think about all the molecules of ice cream that have melted away in the frying process. 

What a waste of resources.


My husband, Mr. Downeastdoingstuff, is always thinking. His thoughts really flow with a bottle of wine.

(Ask our contractor, most of the work and additions to our house popped into Mr. DEDS head via vino. All worth it, I might add.


This time he E-MAILS me this tidbit. (yes, we do live in the same house. I was actually IN the house with him when he e-mailed me this.) (although I should talk....I've actually called him on his cell from my cell while we were both in the house!)


Nevertheless....here it is.....


"Hey, it's HOT out but...
Ok- maybe I've been out in the heat a bit much. I've been thinkin'--- here are some innovative ideas that should be tried immediately

1. in summer wash shorts and wear immediately! Wet. Real cool! Try it!

2. Eliminate the month of March immediately!  Each month takes on 2-3 extra days. Birthdays moved to other months. The month is a mental DRAG!

3. Buy a car--- the car is immediately registered for 100 years! No charge! No questions! Also-- a one time inspection sticker is given at that time.

4. Make it REAL hard to fall in love!  You know make it emotionally and physically challenging.  Make it like a Game Show! I haven't got this one all worked out yet. THEN--Incentives should be given 10 years, 15, 20 and so on you get valued coupons. (too many divorces on this planet)

5. No more irons... put on your clothes with a million wrinkles, then walk under this quick-iron machine, like the metal detector at airports. An instant dry mister(like at Disney in summer months) filled with water and Wrinkle-free. Sort of like getting freeze-dried, fast, no curling of hair, and clothers instantly ironed and pressed. This would save me lots of time and complaining! Both by me and others I love."

The last one may have been a residual inspiration from one of my previous posts on ironing. Or maybe it's because I refuse to iron any of his stuff.

I'm sure he'll email me and let me know. Looking forward to hearing from him.

So funny! Actually the deep-fried ice cream sounds sort of good. Like hot pie with ice cream, right?

My hubby and I e-mail each other at home as well. In our defense, his office is upstairs, mine downstairs. It saves time. :-)

Hubby and I call each other on the phones...cell and land lines in the house all the time. I'm deaf in one ear, and I think his hearing is failing a little, too, so it saves much yelling and frustration! We haven't emailed each other messages, yet, though. Although we have separate computers and forward emails to each other.
Fried ice cream does sound like too many calories for too little return. Can't see messing with ice cream...it's already perfect!

Weirdest thing - I can't see what Mr. DEDS said - it is all in black on black - is this just my computer?

Number one and number five are one and the same. If you put your clothes on while they're still wet from the wash you don't need to iron them. Tell Birdman this is a trick I discovered this year in this heat..I only own a few clothes for really hot weather. Three hot weather days in a row and I'm out of clean clothes. His solution of wash and wear works like a charm. His other ideas...I'm thinking he's either had too much wine or not enough. But two out of five (or four, depending on how you look at it) is not bad.

Yesterday, my husband took a photo of our cat and emailed it to me... while we were in the same room! Sign me up for the ironing machine. Sounds perfect to me!

Oh that's a riot! I thought my husband and I were the only ones that did things like that! My mother and father in law have a tiny little office. They are back to back in their computer chairs. All that is needed is a quick turn of the head or chair to see or speak to each other. What do they do? EMAIL!! What a riot! They have had many laughs about this together! Me...I want an intercom I can play with. I can pretend I am my husbands boss some days...he he. Ok...about the random thoughts one has while embibing...usually they're not worth saving (can you tell I used to write when drunk?) but I really like #4. I love that, and it shows what a sentimental guy he is...I think? #5...Aren't there steam things you can buy now that you put your clothes into and it istantly gets out the wrinkles! Hey thanks for stopping by GoodOldBeans! That's my father in law. GeeGee's Grafitti is my mother in law!

okay, now I don't feel so bad. Sometimes when hubby and I are sitting in bed with our respective computers, I'll text him something
