I recently ordered some glass spray bottles online. It was a great price on several sizes and options that I could combine while making concoctions from my herbs. But… this one could go into the Hummmm file for thought.
Pay close attention to number four in the instructions. Hummmm….
Many of my followers know what is coming with the strange and the possible far out there of this Hummm post. I have to admit, hard to find or see such things if you are locked in your own house for months on end or within the local community where the once hummm… is now just part of the landscape.
But, we have ventured out a small amount and the hummm file got larger than I thought. Now, I must share all the strange hummm in our world with the world.
When I am out for my much needed exercise I sometimes see some strange things in the neighborhood. Yes, this made me look twice and then reach for the camera to make sure I am not totally loosing it.
Then there was the COVID 19 downsizing clean up of the attic. This now brings into question my hubby and his profession in the aviation industry or hummmm… CIA watcher?
Then a Spring trip to Limburg I saw this.
Then there was this strange mailbox on that same Limburg trip.
Another walk in our local area produced this hummm… combination in a front garden.
The garden where I volunteer always makes me think hummm. Nature has a way of surprising all of us when we least expect it. This guy, I didn’t expect and never had seen one this big a good 3 inches long in The Netherlands before.
So that brings us close to the end of the summer and this past weekend. Driving home from the Rotterdam area we did a double take when this passed us on the road.
Have you seen the strange and the hummm…recently? Share your comments below. Stay safe and Stay Healthy!
With all that is going on in the world it seems some things and companies are dependable. At a cost, of course.
I never would have guessed that it would ever cost me personally $74.00 to vote in a US election. That is only the primary, I will have to do the same for the general election this fall.
I don’t usually mix my blog and my political views but many who follow my blog know how deeply I feel about the trends in my mother country.
Shock…when I saw attacks by leadership towards the US Postal Service earlier this year. I joined the thousands of other Americans who purchased postage to show our support for a system so many rural Americans depend. Support for the US Postal Service that hires thousands of military veterans.
Shock…once again as the leadership placed someone in charge at the US Postal Service to make it more profitable. Instantly, I experienced change in the US Postal Service and how it approached customers services. Prices to send packages jumped, letter mail and packages to get to me here in The Netherlands now takes weeks and months to receive. Can we blame the delay in service on the current pandemic?
Last week that US Postal employees announced that their hours have been cut and undelivered mail is now piling up at facilities. How is that possible in these times where everyone is depending on package delivery to avoid shopping in stores?
The final straw for me was hearing that our US election would not be valid due to mail in votes this year. A shout to delay the US election went out.
I couldn’t believe it!!!
For the first time as a voting adult I chose this election cycle to pay to place my vote. I don’t care what it costs me. I know I can still exercise my freedom to choose who I want in office.
Hopefully, we (American citizens) will experience some change of leadership with the next round of elected officials.
Are you frustrated? Have you voted? We would love to hear how you are dealing with trying to vote this year. Please send us a personal message via our contact page or leave your comments below.
In my last blog I explained that I had to sell two of my beloved chickens. What happened to the two hens I sold?
When selling any pet I am always worried. Am I selling them to a good home?
When the buyer came to the door to pick up the chickens I instantly knew it was the right choice to sell these hens, to this person.
With a smile from ear to ear he waved the cash at us and said he was here to pick up the chickens. The Hubby walked the buyer to the rear garden gate as I walked slowly through the house to the backyard. Preparing myself mentally to let these chickens go to a new home.
I could hear the pounding of clogs on the cement sidewalk as they approached the gate. Then that same smile lit up my back garden when the buyer set eyes on the chickens. His companion talked intently with the Hubby about this chicken lover who was buying the hens.
I walked the buyer over to the coop. His excitement at seeing how large the chickens were was infectious. My earlier worries and all my uneasy feelings now melted out of my mind. I smiled too.
I explained to the new owner that my hens eat out of my hand, he instantly turned to his companion and told her in an excited voice that they could be hand fed.
I caught the hens and handed them off to their new owner. He handled them like a pro. I was surprised. I have seen many chicken owners who had no idea how to hold a hen to keep them calm. This guy knew chickens!
We placed them in the box but not before Kipass had second thoughts of leaving our backyard. In the last flurry of minutes, she was caught and placed back into the box.
With a promise of letting me know how they fit into their new home and possible trade in the future for some small bantam chickens then new owner exited our garden. It already felt a bit empty with only two hens in the coop. But, I glowed with the warm feeling of happiness that I made this contact with a fellow chicken enthusiast.
Not long after leaving our house I received a message with an attached video. I asked the new owner if I could share this experience with all of you, and the answer was just as nice as the new owner. So enjoy…
