Something I could use for a "Laverne moment" know...if....when....I have one

No....not Laverne as in
"Laverne & Shirley"
(though I have had a few Laverne Difazio moments)...

I'm thinking more of this Laverne...

Yesterday, one of my neighbors came over and and brought me a bag that her friend had made.
"She made a bunch of them and gave me some....I don't need but one or two so I'm giving them to everyone around here. I don't know if you'll like it or not but...if you want it, you can have it."

When I looked down and saw the bag in her hands, I really had to concentrate so as not to burst into laughter.  At first glance, isn't really something I would carry everyday for shopping.
To be nice and thinking I could give it to my MIL,
I accepted the bag.

But...after looking at it, hanging on the back of the chair,
I have to's starting to kind of grow on me.
I may be having a "Laverne moment" soon, so I better be keeping it handy.

Oh...and the flamingos?
Being, well....flamingos (!!)...
they love it...of course, they do.
Silly birds.
**And just for the record...that's gold, shiny material on the inside....and
it's reversable ya'll!!!**


A quick math word problem:

If 6 Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs
are delivered to a house
with 4 people who love such eggs,
how can they be divided
so that everyone gets an equal share?

The package is opened up, very quickly and each person is given an egg to
enjoy (some a little more excitedly than others).
Then, as 3 of the people in the house
go about their merry, unsuspecting way, the 4th person, being the
total be-yatch that she is, hides the remaining
2 eggs in the freezer.
Screw "equal share".
The remaining 2 safely hidden among
the frozen spinach and tofu burgers...
belong to the 4th person.
The 4th person doesn't believe in "equal share"
when it comes to Reese's.
She's just saying.

Thanks smalltownmom for the great surprise....
{{hugs}} to you for sharing your Easter basket!!

I wish you all little surprises today....I hope that some
you can use eat
immediately...and some you can save...for later.

I love the gum chewing, bra strap showing, pointy rhinestone glasses Laverne! I'll have to find and post the picture from the year I dressed up as her for Halloween. As for the chocolate pb eggs, I do the same thing and no one is ever the wiser. After all, a chocoholic has to do what she has to do, right?

If anyone wants to find my hidden stash, be sure to look behind the spinach.

I forgot about that Laverne. She was awesome. And, oops! My age is showing.

I think the way you divided the eggs was perfect! And I loved Cher's Laverne!

Hi Debbie!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a little hello. I'm always curious about how people find me, so feel free to share. :)

I only read through the last 4 or 5 posts, and you have me cracking up! I'll definitely be spending some time going through your archives. I always love expanding my circle of Bloggy Buddies. ;-)
