Chicken with its head cut off!!


March 13, 2008

Time that I write here again! I am like Donna with her 10 min. weekends--it was only yesterday that I wrote here! At least it seems that way. Sun. Pat & Donna & I went to Rochester to celebrate Janet's birthday. We went out to eat & then came back to their place for birthday cake. Lynn & Eddie came. I haven't seen Lynn for a long time & it was good to see Eddie after he had been so sick & in the hospital  He is doing great except for a monstrous hospital bill! $30,000 ---& no hospitalization! Poor guy will be paying that almost the rest of his life.

I have been to the dentist twice last week. Had one small cavity & then my front bottom teeth were getting loose. Dentist put a fine wire to the solid teeth & then covered that with dentist's cement. Now they are fine!

Yesterday I got a new dining room table —new to me. It was Tiny's. Angel (Tiny's granddaughter) called Pat the other night & told her Tiny's house was sold & asked if Pat wanted the dining room table, so she went to look at it & told me it would look good in my dining area. Yesterday Pudge & Denny got it. It is really a pretty table - also has 4 chairs. I'm glad I got it.

I noticed that Sarah used the expression "like a chicken with its head cut off," but I bet you young folks do not know how this expression came about. On the farm when you cut a chickens head off & let go of it, it would flop around as much as 10 feet or so from where it lost its head, hence the expression. Another bit of trivia you could have lived without!
