Here It Is

Oops! I almost forgot to post something tonight. Imagine that! I've
done one every day forEVER, and I just got carried away typing
an email to a company that did not send me a book from an order
I made waaaaay back July 31. Shame on them. I have already
called them once, and was told to call back if I didn't get it within
two weeks. That deadline has waaaaay expired. Double shame
on them. I won't say specifically who it is, since they at least have
not charged me for the merchandise I didn't get, but shame shame
shame, it is an academic book service company. If I had known
they were not sending that book, I would have gotten one from
another bookseller. SHAME ON THEM! That's no way to run
a business, to send out the order, with the one thingy crossed out
in red ink, with no comment about it. And then to say that it will
ship when they get it. Don't LIST it, you DOGGONE people,
if you DON'T HAVE IT IN STOCK!

Have I ever told you that PEOPLE PISS ME OFF? Well, they do.
We have found our litter of 5 puppies from the low-water bridge
that we had planned on kidnapping one of. Ain't that good English?
I teach it now, too, you know. Those puppies are in a fenced yard
about a mile from the bridge, at the house where HH stopped to
ask about buying the portable dog run they have marked for sale
at a price of $75. Who knew? We wanted a dog run for a puppy,
but the dog-run-sellers had scooped up all the puppies. Man!
That reminds me of the time I sold my beautiful long flowing hair
to buy HH a watch fob, and wouldn't you know it, HH had sold
his watch to buy me combs for my hair! Oh. That wasn't us. It
was a short story by O. Henry. Just checking to see if you're
paying attention.

This morning, on the way to school, I saw the puppies while we
were waiting behind a school bus. #2 said, "I TOLD you I saw
our puppies here." He was right. I had not believed him a few
days ago. I only saw their little brown dog running around the
yard. #1 son said, "Dad should come up here to get that dog
pen, and see if they'll sell him a puppy with it." I told him, "You
saw those two little girls get on the bus. You know you can't
take their puppies. That would be like stealing a puppy from a
little girl." OK, so I'm not very original tonight. I've had another
hard day. #1 agreed with me that we couldn't upset the happy
home of lost puppies. At least the mystery has been solved.

Speaking of solving...the Free Hairwad Hot Tub no longer smells
like old people. Which means that HH and #2 son do not smell
like old people after sitting in it for a half-hour every night. Imagine
that! If you drain out the first tub of water that's been put in it in
oh....I don't know...20 FREAKIN' YEARS...and clean it and
refill it, the water doesn't smell like old people. Who knew? ME
ME ME ME ME! But HH had to hear if from the pool & spa
experts. I wonder if I could give them a script to read to him
every few weeks. That could be a new side business for them.

Speaking of side businesses...I think I need to go grade some
papers for that little thing I like to call MY JOB.

When I started reading this post I thought "Wouldn't HillBilly Mom make a GREAT WMD!"

Just wind you up and point you in the direction of whoever pisses me off!

It was a short story by O. Henry.

I think Little House On The Prairie had an episode along those lines.

Oh Hillbilly Mom, you are so wise. And profound!

Hey! Mine does that too! Why don't they BELIEVE us!? It's like they think we're too stupid to see something that other people can plainly see...Don't know if I'm going to be able to adjust to that or not.

Maybe those people didn't actually want all those puppies, but didn't want anything to happen to them. In that case, it might not hurt to ask them if they want to give one up. No need to thank me. I think everyone is entitled to my opinion. :-)

LOL, it takes a mother to know it...it takes someone else to point it out to our husband's and kids for them to bloody well listen...YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH HBM!!!

Lantern,
Yes, I could start a side business, myself. Getting Even With Pissers.

Little House may indeed have borrowed from O. Henry. I'm surprised they had any ideas left, that show ran so long. Little Half-Pint was a Couple of Gallons by the time the show ended.

Diva,
I takes someone like you to appreciate the humor of someone like me.

Miss Ann,
It wears on you after a while. I also hate the 'If I Said It, It Is True' attitude.

Betty,
You seem to fit in with all the other inmates here at the Mansion. Perhaps HH will inquire about the dog run and a dog this weekend.

Cazzie,
Don't we know it! We know it ALL, but nobody wants to listen to us.
