I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.


A lot of things has happened with us since my first blog entry on 9/5/14.

I amazed myself on how many posts I was able to get published with everything else that was going on in our lives last year.  There was many times I that I felt like I was the Chicken, instead of Chasing the Chicken.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
Laugh Out Loud, I've used that drawing a lot.  It relates so well with the title of my Blog.

You most likely ask yourself a million times a day, What's Next? just like me.
Those are like the ones that you can find on a to-do list, day-planners, etc.

Then there are the Life Changing questions of What's Next, that start you on a journey, adventure, road to hell, etc.,  that makes you wonder if there is even going to be a future.

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.  So What's Next for you?  What's Next for me?   
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
Good Bye Blogger.

The Good Bye is not an I'm out of here, I'm never going to post here again good bye.

I have the confidence that I can do one blog post a week.  I tried doing two blog post a week here, and even with my son helping me with the Off The Wall- Wednesdays we were making the publish times by the skins of our teeth.   

http://www.petinac.com/ has been in the works for awhile now, and I recently had some good luck, which has put me in the place where I can afford to get it done.

I haven't decided what I'm going to do here yet, and I will have that figured out by January 2016.
I am open to suggestions, in the mean time.  Below the comment area is a contact form so you can easily send your suggestions.

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

Is it your plan to be serving Turkey for Thanksgiving then you might want to check out my Pinterest Board:




I really wish I had know those helpful tips before I did my first turkey.

For me, I didn't have a Turkey for my Thanksgivings until after I got married, and my first year doing Thanksgiving we ended up not having the turkey cause I didn't know it needs days to thaw out.

I got a pin on the board linking to How to Make Perfect Easy to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs.  It's something you might find helpful if your family likes Deviled Eggs for Thanksgiving, like mine.

There is a few pins that will lead you to lists of dishes you can make ahead of time.  There is no rule that says you can't prepare sides dishes early.
 
Being the Host of Thanksgiving can be a very stressful time, if you don't do some planning ahead.  It can make you feel like you're Chasing the Chicken.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving?
Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

Make lists of the supplies you need to buy at the store, and remember to take the list with you to the store.  It will help in decreasing your feelings of Chasing the Chicken, which you will start to feel if you have to make a lot of trips to the store cause you forgot to get something when you were at the store earlier.

A special thing about Family is they aren't going to think any less of you, if you ask them to make a side dish, or dessert to bring for Thanksgiving.  Just make sure to ask them what they are going to make so you both don't end up making the same thing.

I'm gathering up good helpful pins that give some suggestions on what you can do with the leftover turkey.  I personal like Turkey Chili.

Happy Thanksgiving.

While we left the old man at home with Olive,  Baby sitting him. 
We headed to town to see the Parade.
My daughter had been after me for days to make sure to check her out of school, before the Parade.  Which worked well for me since I put a camera in her hand and told her to take pictures.  So between the both of us we got some good pictures.

She is getting so good at taking pictures that I was having a hard time telling who took the pictures.

We knew they were getting ready to start the Parade cause the cops were out and about blocking traffic for the Parade.

The Riderless Horse is a symbol that honors the fallen soldiers but for me it also reminds me of all the animals that have been in the military as well.  He was close to the beginning of the Parade.

I hope that you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

Well, really can't say much about the Trick A Trunks, this year.

It was one of those weeks that I felt like a chicken running around with it's head cut off.
And that night was no excepting since I forgot to check the memory card in the camera, so I ran out of memory on the card not long after we got there.

Here is the Link to my 2014 Trick A Trunk.

This man who stopped for us to take a picture with my daughter was walking the line.  He was part of the crew that was helping with the hosting of the Trick a Trunk.

This little gal was in line in front of us.  After I read her shirt I had to have a pic of her.  In case you can't read it says:
I'm a Nightmare Dressed as a Daydream.
By the time we all reached the front of the line she was more then ready to be just that.

It really wasn't a very long wait in line this year, but I was passing time taking pictures of those who were waiting in line with us.  There are 3 Minions in the Picture Can you find the 3rd one?

Ever seen a Jacked Up Limo?  Well I can say I have and even got a picture of it to prove it.
It was the last trunk in the line of Trick A Trunks, which means I got a picture of it before I ran out of memory on my card.

Proof that your never to old to dress up for Halloween, and that Trick A Trunks is a Family Fun Outing.  Scooby Doo and Gang happen to be one of my daughters favorite shows.

Last picture I got before the camera started telling me the memory was full.  It was my plan to get another picture with the sign in better focus.  It reads:
Candy By Fuzz
One of the old men tossed me a Tootsie Roll for taking their picture.  My daughter wasn't to happy that I was getting to Trick A Trunk before we made it to the front of the line.

So did you figure out where the 3rd Minion is?

If your answer is The 3rd Minion is in the Stroller your Correct.

And here I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do a blog entry on the Trick A Trunk this year cause I didn't think I had enough pictures.

Have a Safe Veteran's Day.

What is a Virtual Flea Market?

Whatever Fridays- What is a Virtual Flea Market?

Whatever Fridays- What is a Virtual Flea Market?

Whatever Fridays- What is a Virtual Flea Market?

I hope that you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

Flea Market:

noun
A Market, often outdoors, consisting of a number of individual stalls selling old or used articles, curios and antiques, cut-rate merchandise,etc.
Virtual:
adjective
temporarily simulated or extended by computer software

reference- http://dictionary.reference.com/
What is a Virtual Flea Market?
What is a Virtual Flea Market?
 The funniest things comes up when one is in a car for two hours on the way to a doctor's appointment.

The subject of my board A Virtual Flea Market on Pinterest came up.


My daughter in the back seat, asked What is a Virtual Flea Market, Mom?

It's like the Dog Trade,(it's what our local Flea Market is called) but everything is done on line, and the people online are from all over the place.
Some of them have stores on:
  1. Esty.com
  2. Amazon.com
  3. Ebay.com
  4. And a bunch more I can't think of off the top of my head. 
With my daughter's question answered she quickly moved us all onto another question, but her question got me to asking myself more questions.


Which Came 1st?  Egg or The Chicken?
Which Came 1st?  Egg or The Chicken?
That is a long standing argument to which came first.  They both can be sold at a Market, so it really doesn't matter to which came first, to me.  Don't sell all your Chickens at the market, or you won't have any eggs to sell in the future.  Was the best advice I was given.

The nice thing about Dictionary.com they have a section on Word Origin.
It was interesting to learn that the combination of words Flea Market started being used in the 1920's.  (How many generations ago was that?  Great-Grandmother Elsie might of been born by then.)

The history on the Word Market is older.  Which doesn't surprise me.

Humans have been trading goods between each other longer then that.  It wasn't until some smarty pants came up with the idea of Money that trading goods between each other started getting easier.
This Little Piggy Went To Market!
This Little Piggy Went To Market!
Sometimes the silliest things pops in my head when I'm writing.  I can't remember which toe it is that goes to Market.  So I really hope you got a giggle.

Because of my unplanned break I know for certain that the popularity of my group board isn't because I'm blogging about it.

At the time that I'm writing this there is 1.5k people on Pinterest following the board.  It is averaging 10 new people following it a day.  So-

Whatever Fridays- Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

Whatever Fridays- Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

  I hope that you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

WARNING- This pretty much going to be a RANT Post.

My biggest pet peeve on Pinterest!  It drives me nuts and makes me feel like I should be making my own little episodes of Lost In Space!  And what even ticks me off more is that my own Pins have came down with the sending people into their own Lost In Space episodes as well.

The old saying You get what you pay for certainly popped in my head when I discovered my pins were sending people off into Lost In Space.

What do I mean by Lost In Space?  It's where you click on an image on pinterest and it sends you somewhere that has nothing to do with the picture you clicked on.  Have you:
Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

I was giving TrafficWonker a try, everything went fine the first week, the pins was taking the people clicking on the pin to where it's suppose to, so I didn't check the next week on the pins.

On week days I pin a lot of other people's pins, 1st checking to make sure the pin isn't a Lost in Space Episode.  I pin some of my stuff on Fridays, and a lot of my stuff on the weekends, so It wasn't until then that I started noticing a very big difference in my stats.

Bye Bye TrafficWonker, I gave you a try.
I hate being sent into Lost In Space. 
I'm Very Sorry.  Working On Fixing Problem.
I'm Very Sorry.  Working On Fixing Problem.
I'm really sorry, and I am busy checking all my pins to make sure they are not sending people into Lost In Space.

I really don't understand people's reasoning behind sending people into Lost In Space?

Do they not understand that most people don't give 2nd chances?

Do they not understand if all they have is Lost In Space Pins no one is going to follow them?

I can't change anyone but myself!

I'm done ranting.

I'm testing BoardBooster.  Keeping my fingers crossed.



Hope you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

Hope you have an even Greater Weekend.
