L I B!

Wow, is this really the third post in a row in as many days?
Now I've jinxed it, haven't I?

Okay, I said I'd give the answer to my super-suave visual joke of yesternight...to refresh the scene and give some insight:

While sailing up in the Sacramento Delta area, a rocket scientist (well, that's what his t-shirt said) friend of mine commented on the number of, um, odd folks in the "South of the North" that is the Delta region. He summed it up by scratching out these letters on a piece of paper for us all to take it all in and maybe acclimate, sort of...that there was a clue for y'all. And them there's another. So try it out again, with feelin'.

Still nothin'?
No, it's not Mr. Snakes.
Put some twang into it, maybe an exclamation point after the first line.
Give up?

This is what learning phonics can do for you:
'Em are snakes!
'Em are not.
Oh 'es 'a are!
See 'em beady eyes?
'ell I be!
'Em are snakes!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, I never said I was a complicated woman.

In a side note, I found out just how much a creature of habit I can be. I got to choose frames for a new pair of glasses today. Searching high and low and trying on pair after pair after fabulous pair, I finally found ones that might stand the test of fashion times. How do I know this? Because when I went to put on my old pair, the Optometrist and I busted out laughing loud enough to scare everyone else in the room...yes folks, it took almost 1/2 an hour, but I found a pair that pretty much matched the ones I've been wearing for the last three years. Though they are a shade darker! At the rate I choose these differences in my eye-wear, I'll have a completely different pair in about 10 years!

Lucky you! I can never find the frames I love the five years after I get the first pair!

Ha ha, yeah, I would have NEVER figured out that snake thingy. Sounds like how they talk down here.

The eye glasses story is really funny! I always have a terrible time picking out frames, so I can understand how you ended up back at the beginning.
