OMG.  I’m back.  LOL I thought that this blog and I had parted ways but thankfully we’ve not. I’m so happy. If you look at the dates, you’ll see that it’s been awhile.

Anyway. Yeah!

Hannah Murphy’s Guide to Sane Living



Me too. 

“We” are in the process of finding and purchasing a washing machine. 

This should be a simple business transaction but it is not.  There are “umpteen”  different “conversations” related to the process.  There are  wash cycles and rinse cycles and Earth friendly laundry considerations. Then there are the consumer reports and the on line research.  The expense of the machine and the soul search of why the previous washing machine broke invades our dinner converstation..

Do we buy the cheap machine that we can take home today?

Or do we wait the 12 days that it will take to order the more expensive machine?

I’m not kidding.

This lovely 3 day weekend was spent looking for a washing machine.

I’m beginning to think a rock, a river bank, and clothes line in the snow would be easier.
All of this just gets up to what machine to buy.
After “we” find the machine,  there’s the negociations  trying to get the machine  to the house and of who will install the thing. when it gets there.

I’m just not that handy and to have it delivered out into the country means delivery fees and waiting  all day long for them to get there.

Meanwhile the laundry mountain grows and there’s the question of who get’s to do it and where.  The laundrymat has 15 dryers but only two work.
Enjoy the single life of laundry.  😀

From

Hannah Murphy’s Rules For  Sane Living
“The sane man or woman lives with their roomate and visits their  wife or husband inorder to keep the “love” alive”.  Your spouse may from Heaven but your roommate comes from necessity.  There is an element of business about the transaction.  You can throw them out or leave without a law firm and their mothers getting involved.

(True, there are the rare occassions involving small claims court or Judge Judy but  it’s nothing compare to the expectations marriage and who does the laundry.  )
Good luck with your adventure.

Hello. This is just one person’s opinion…

.

Hello!

Learned the hard way that post cards are more of a visual grab amongst all the other visual data that we see. Things like color, shape, and type face can cause a person to stop. Like a display of  book covers. Something just causes you to say, “Hey now, what was that I just saw out of the corner of my eye?’ I’m gonna go back and take another look.”

You don’t have to have lots of information on it you just have to have that one word, phrase, of image that causes a person to take action. It can be the oddest thing. Like a gecko.

Or the Twitter avi for One Hour Theater

The image causes a person to pick the post card up and then read the short blurb on the back.  A really catchy or inventive image will cause that same person to keep said post card. Put it on the fridge or inspiration board. 

I like the colors. They’re bright but not “slap your face” catchy. I like the shape but you might have some confusion with a sale on clothes. The thing is that there’s alot to process in that quick image. Sometime that will get a person’s attention and sometimes so much info will cause the person to filter it out as just TMI to deal with at the time.

My understanding is that you’re a mom. Put a couple of versions of your post card where they can find them and then look to see what catches their eye. No matter what age, we’re all kids when it comes to that “flash image” that draws our attention.

I hope that you aren’t offended by this abrupt comment. It’s why I put it on my blog and not on the comments. It’s just that I had to do my own print adverts way back and found alot of this out the hard and sometimes expensive way.

Regards,

Ann

PS Will you be doing a cost analysis for the post card? I’m curious if this method of advert works.

Thanks.

Not sure if I should be angry or resigned to it.

Yeah ha. How’s the weather???

 

It’s been snowing.

(On Christmas day!)

 
I don’t think that we’ve had snow in December in more than 10 years.

The last time it snowed in December I took it as a sign to look up a long lost friend.

I was younger then and believed in Fate.

Now I’m older.

Not sure if I believe in the weather being a “sign from Devine Providence” that I should “Do something.”

As I wrote,

“Now I’m older.”

 But.

It is about time that I catch up.

(Someone has come here from my other blog. )

“Hello.”

“How’s it going?”

PS.

Happy New Year.

Who are you?
