Favorite Bathrooms

  • Home Sweet Home
  • When I'm @ someones house: the one farthest away from the crowd
  • @ the Mall: Macy's (as public bathrooms go this one is very nice)
  • If I can't make it to Macy's...JC Penney's will have to do (they recently remodeled so it is better than it was. I don't know why they didn't ask for my input???)
  • Monterey Bay Fish Grotto in Monroeville has a great bathroom
  • Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, My fav place to vacation, their rooms have the most wonderful bathrooms

Green Poop…Yes Sometimes; Green Thumb…No Never!

I don’t know about most people but with my crohns over the years I have experienced several shades of poo. When I go to the GI doctor they always ask: Do you have any blood in your stool? Do you have any black tarry stool? Yes I’ve had shades of red, black, green, yellow, and brown. I think I should have a ring of color swatches to show the doctor. So yes I sometimes have green poo. My thumb however…Double Yoi!!! I do not now nor have I ever had a green thumb. These days it’s even worse. I feel so bad because wonderful loving family and friends bring me beautiful plants (now and in the past) and I really do try but…well…they die. Yes I am a killer of plants, big ones, little ones, ones that flower, ones that don’t. How you ask? Mostly I forget to water them. Some plants are very hardy and they actually survive for a while. Their leaves droop, hanging all the way down from lack of water. This is my reminder to give them a drink and many times they perk back up and look beautiful again. Of course each time there are the unfortunate leaves that don’t survive and the plant thins and thins. Each time my poor plant droops I promise that I will not forget again. I will water you on a regular basis (which sometimes results in drowning them) but most of the time I forget again and more drooping and more dying. So there you have it. The quickest way to kill a plant is to give it to me. I do love it and appreciate it but you have just sentenced it to death.

Love, Laugh, and Always know where the nearest bathroom is
