Many years ago this dear lovely woman (who shall remain nameless) was cooking dinner one evening for her family. Now she doesn't consider herself a domestic goddess nor Martha Stewart but she was able to throw together quickly a few tidbits for her hungry brood. One recipe she specialized in was beef roll-ups...she rolls thin slices of beef and adds assorted veggies to the inside and spices and oil to the outside of each and then cooks these gems under the broiler.
In her haste, she grabbed a can of Pam or so she thought and sprayed the outside of one roll-up with a light coating. Unfortunately, it was a can of oven cleaner. Realizing her mistake she quickly washed the roll-up under the faucet, dried it off and resprayed it once more with the correct can of Pam. She placed a toothpick in the roll-up and finished cooking these tasty morsels.
She presented the roll-up with the toothpick to her husband and the remainder to her family.
Aghast, when she told me the story I did ask if there was any residual effects or health problems with her husband....she told me " no, not really ...but ever since then, in the dark, late at night certain parts of him do glow in the dark " !
Yours in a whimsey,

To start this journey of blogging.....I live in a small town...called Oconomowoc.... it is an Indian word meaning "falling waters"... yes, we have a huge waterfall...all of 4 feet tall. ME thinks those city founding fathers had a tendency to grandiose a few things...hmmm, wonder what their darling wives would have to say about that !
In this sweet little town we have 55 lawyers, 25 dog groomers, 18 bars, 12 gynecologists, 8 liquor stores, 7 coffee shops, 5 tanning salons, 4 huge grocery stores, 2 dentists ( 1 operates a tattoo parlor ), 2 tattoo parlors, 1 McDonalds, 1 Taco Bell, 1 Starbucks, 1 teddy bear artist, 1 antique store,1 Post Office, 1 UPS & 1 craft store.
Soooooo.... if you need an attorney for your coffee drinking dog who ate a bad hamburger, taco or the mailman....and you like to have "nookie" before you sip from an antique glass of merlot at the dentists office while sitting for a tattoo with a teddy bear in one tanned arm and a bag of mail and groceries in the other.... this is the place to live !
OK...OK... I may be lying about the lawyers......there are only 54 of them here.
