I Wonder......

I Wonder if anyone has tried the "NEW Blogger in Beta"? Is it easier to use?

I wondered yesterday, as I was taking clothes out of the dryer.... How can I wash and dry clothes sooooo many times, dispose of all this lint and still have a garment! It just seems like eventually there wouldn't be any thread left.

WHO decides where to put the toilet paper holder in public restrooms? Have they ever considered sitting on the commode to see what would be convenient. I mean sometimes you feel like you have to stand on your head to get a hold of the paper because they are located so low, other times your banging your head on them and there is still empty space on the other side, but within reach. I just can't figure out their theory for placement!

Why would they make a vacumn cleaner without that round attachment with brushes on it to get along the walls with. You know the one you can get cobwebs off the ceiling, down the corners and run along the baseboards. A few years ago I purchased a name-brand vacumn cleaner from a name brand store. I guess I just never thought to check out all the attachments. I mean, why would they NOT have this attachment. So everytime I want to clean along the ceilings, etc. I have to use just the wand and be really careful or I will stratch the wall with the edge of the wand.

While I was writing this post I received a phone call from my daughter-in-law that she was on her way to take Ethan, my 3-year-old grandson to an ENT because he shoved rocks up his nose, and since he had previously had sinus surgery and ear tubes the regular doctor wanted the ENT to check it out. So I have to ask myself "Why would he shove rocks up his nose?"

I did just exactly this, once. Little rocks popping up in the hole in the floorboard on a trip to my grandmother's house. Why, no clue. I do know after my dad poured black pepper into my nose, I sure never did it again!

The tp thing, surely they are placed by men who just dont spend as much time there as we ladies do!

I've wondered the same things, especially about the tp holders.

I'm guessing that the vacuum cleaner thing is to get you to spend more money on extra attachments, but I'm with you in thinking it should come with all the accessories.

Oh my word. Hysterical. I've wondered the exact thing about the lint in the dryer filter. How on earth is there any fabric left in anything when most of it seems to have been converted into lint. Where on earth does it all come from?

And the rocks in the nose? My brother did that when we were little and we were poor so my Dad's solution was to make him sniff black pepper and that rock came flying out! Ah. The good ole days and all those home remedies.

Thank you for visiting my blog Thursday. Sorry. Just now catching up with everyone.

I have tagged you for a meme. Hope you don't mind. I'm guessing you could come up with an interesting story. Come on over to my place for the details.

Hope your grandson is okay! Those are great questions! Let me know if you figure out the answers...

I think the placement of the TP holders ought to be regulated somehow. I mean, sometimes it's just nice to know what to expect, you know? :-)

And I haven't forgotten about the meme you tagged me for...things have been, as my friend Sarah says, a little swampy on our end of the world.

Thanks for doing the link-y thingy - and hope that grandbaby of yours is fine, rocks and all. :-)
