First off.....Who was the geniuses who thought that this would be a good idea??

I mean really? In today's day and age who plants suspicious looking devices on bridges and subway stations and not expect people to think something is up? Apparently these "devices" are in other cities as well but there was not the same reaction as there was here. It is good to know however that the authorities and FBI etc are on top of things and reacted quickly. Sad however they had to all go out to deal with this in the first place.

I forgot to mention in my last post that while Chris and I were at Chili's Saturday night we saw The Golden Girls. First there was the lady who looked EXACTLY like Bea Arthur , she was sitting with her two friends who could have passed easily as Blanche and Rose. It was so funny!

Yesterday I was at Target doing some shopping. It was getting time to meet up with Chris so I was waiting near the front by the checkouts where I could watch for Chris coming in the main doors. As I was waiting I saw this cute little old lady in her winter coat and hat. She has a cane and was standing watching the entrance intently. After watching her for a while I finally saw this big smile form on her face, I turned to see what it was she was smiling at and walking towards her was a tall old man with his winter coat and hat on walking towards her. As he got closer he removed his hat (they way they did way back) and smiled back at her. When he reached her he grabbed her hand and kissed it and said "I am so glad to see you my dear, are you ready for our date?" And off they walked together hand in hand from Target into the mall. HOW STINKING CUTE is that? It totally made me smile.

What a bunch of morons, have people not learned that you cannot do things like this anymore... Oh well, i guess they got some good advertising for their little cartoon. I would have hated to be stuck in that trafic.

The genteelness of that generation is lost, but oh so cute. Can you imagine some 17 year old pulling up to his girlfriend's house and trying to woo her like that?
No, he'd honk and not even get out of the car. LOL!!!
I love old people they are so cute and so often ignored.
Side note here...is anyone else having trouble with posting comments? I have to try about five times before it finally will let me post it. I know I suck at getting the word verification right, but come on!
