Random synapses firing

Good morning and Happy Monday!

Over the weekend we had sunshine with a bit of rain, and I made the discovery that I am allergic to something in Pace Picante Sauce.  My face broke out into little bumps all around my mouth and itched until 2:00 AM.  (It stopped at 2:00 because I got up and took a Benadryl.  😯  )

On Saturday we visited Tuscumbia and here is some of what we saw…

Tuscumbia is a quaint and lovely town, but I think they roll up the sidewalks too early on Saturdays.  By 4:00 PM nearly everything was CLOSED, and on Sunday everything IS closed!


It is 7:00 AM and I have to get ready for the dentist, call the vet to inquire about Tucker’s medicine, and try to get some packing and sorting done.

How was your weekend?

    I feel for you Lynda. I got into poison ivy, which I’ve never had problems with before. Low and behold, I am VERY allergic to it now. It’s covered most of my legs, some on my chest, and a good bit on my arms. It’s a horror of itching I tell you!! I hope you’re on the mend soon!

    I’m still thinking of poor, little Tucker. How’s my Buddy doing?

      I have heard of this happening with repeated exposure to poison ivy and oak. I have also read that the chemical composition of *mango skins are akin to urushiol, and that some people can react badly to contact with the fruit. Hope you don’t like mangos much! 😉 Truthfully, I also read that this reaction to the fruit is very rare. I’m glad you are on the mend, because you did have me worried. As for me, well, it is a very small area, and localized to my mouth and chin really. 😛 As for the Little dog I am on my way right now to get his medicine! 😀

    When you take to abusing architects, we can see that you were not at your usual level or serenity. My policy is only to eat really dull food, preferably that I have cooked myself so I hope never to be able to have empathy for your sauce allergy but I can certainly have sympathy for it.

    I hope that the packing went well and that nothing was overlooked.

      Oh dear, I believe you have misunderstood me on the architecture, Tom. When referring to the gate that stands at the entrance of the allée as “Artsie-Fartsi” well, I actually quite liked it! It is carefully fashioned from found objects such as glass electrical insulators, old metal grates, an oak barrel hoop, bed springs, and more! 🙂
      As for the packing, well, I am starting early, because I know what a procrastinator I can be. If I want to be ready to go when the time comes then I must start NOW! 😉 Thank you for your sympathy too.

    spent the weekend doing Mother’s Day stuff with my daughter and my husband, plus my oldest grand came to visit Sunday afternoon. The youngest came with his mom and sister and brought me a painted vase with flowers. About the best one ever. Missed seeing my son but he did call.

        Thank you…yes, I see an osteopath – not to worry, she thinks it’ll get better and that I won’t need an op. But those pills are real downers…:-) (but stops muscle spasms). Hope you are doing well with the packing!

    We had a lovely weekend. Hubby had to work Saturday, but we took a “Sunday drive” to places we hadn’t ventured in a long while. Sometimes we need a break from the city, and go wandering back roads and wildlife refuges. Sometimes I long for the days when stores were closed on Sundays, and the streets rolled up at dark. It seems there was a lot more family time then, where now we are more mobile and it requires longer travel times to visit family.

    • Lynda says:

      We do that too, Patti. I remember it used to be called a Sunday Drive. You never hear that any more either.

      And yes, we are family, and yet a world apart…
      It does make it difficult.

So how about that? Go on; say something!
