Friday Funny 10/28/11 To Come

I purposely missed posting a Friday Funny today or my version of #FF, because tomorrow I will be attending quite a few Halloween parties and I am for certain there are bound to be some amazingly funny costumes that will be just screaming for me to take their picture and post! So instead on Halloween I will do a Halloween Special post of #FF Costumes from the weekend!!

My Just Ask Bucket List

While browsing Resourceful Mommy I came across a party that also had a contest attached to it that led me over to Within that contest it was to create a Bucket List of at least 15 things on your list. I can do this, I have so much running through my head right now that I'm really trying to narrow down the 15 I'd most definitely like to do, that are within reach! So here goes...

My Bucket List
1. Qualify & Show at the AQHA World Show
2. Win a World Championship at the AQHA World Show
3. Visit Ireland, Italy, and England all in one trip to investigate my family tree
4. Go to Vegas and spend $5000 at a casino without thinking twice
5. Go watch the Kentucky Derby Live in Person the first weekend in May
6. Bake the perfect red velvet cake
7. Show Zero and/or Dylan at an AKC Agility Trial
8. Go to a Super Bowl
9. Visit Hawaii either as a vacation or to see the NFL Pro Bowl
10. Make a bottle of wine
11. Win a big jackpot (over $3000) at the casino (Seneca Niagara Casino is five minutes from me)
12. Buy my Mother a Cadillac
13. Have ZERO Bills
14. Own my own home (still no accepted offer or close date on the house..sigh)
15. Grow a gigantic garden in my backyard so I can be self sufficient with produce!

So there you have it! Those are the 15 things I'd most like to do that are definitely within my reach of doing. Maybe sometime soon I will begin crossing them off the list one at a time...

This is my entry in the Just Ask Bucket List Getaway Giveaway. Just Ask offers a breast and ovarian cancer screening and is encouraging people to share 15 things that I want to enjoy in my lifetime as a reminder to be aware of my health. Want to enter? Head over to to get the details.

Rebellious or Doing The Right Thing

Am I doing the right thing or being rebellious is my question. I normally take Zero to agility training on Saturday morning at the dog club we belong to (No name mentioned) This isn't the only dog club in the area, but another club has classes on Tues, Wed, Thurs night also... but back to the one we belong to. The classes on Saturdays are stacked... 9am beginners, 10am advanced beginners, 11am intermediate, 12pm pre-show, 1pm those that do show. Zero started agility way back in April 2010. My Mom actually started taking her because she was getting bored in the obedience and rally classes and with agility she could run around have fun play jump and all that stuff. Well 4 weeks into her training we had a handler switch to me. My Mom was having shoulder surgery so it was my dog and now my duty to take her to classes. At the end of the session dogs were moved up to the next class as they progressed. However, Zero was not. I understood it this time because we did a change of handler half way in so I was more comfortable staying back in the beginner class.

Friday Funny - True Story - 10/14/11

For my Friday Funny I've decided to tell a story. A story that really did happen. Back in 2006 we had a surprise snow storm, it did a lot of damage to the trees and such, but the day before I had just put out all of my Halloween decorations. As it would go the day after the storm a group of kids stole said Halloween decorations and threw a few of them in the pond that was in the park I had lived three houses away from. We had gotten some of the things out of the pond but there was a blow-mold plastic pumpkin that my Mom had for many many years and even with my rubber boots on in the pond I still could not reach it. So here I thought who has a big pole with a hook I could call. Well my swift brainstorming paid off because I thought ohhh the fire department has one of those. You know those big long poles with the hooks on them.  Yep, you guessed it I called down to the fire department down the street and asked them if I could borrow a fireman and that big long stick and explained the situation of kids stole the decorations and I couldn't reach the pumpkin still in the water. The guy on the phone was polite enough and said no problem Mam I'll send down one of my guys and a pole right now. WHEW... I could finally get the last remaining decoration that was stolen out of the water (well out of the ones we did find)

Indeed I Was First To Answer

It appears there was some controversy over my last Time To Play win on Wednesday. Of course the Wednesday twitter parties are always first answer.. and on first answers I always split my screens. Their parties are mostly search for an answer, but this past one was pick a prize. Within the list of pick a prizes was also the answers to all ten questions. So I split my screen half with Tweetdeck and the other half with Time To Play's website that listed the prizes, so I could just simply copy and then past into TweetDeck. If you want to win on first answer.. the last program to use is Tweetgrid. It lags and loads answer tweets before questions or skips tweets all together.. hence that seemed to be the issue. People on Tweetgrid seeing my answer before TTP's question even showed loaded... Hello this is a known issue why would you keep on using it if you know it's not loading tweets right away?? Good old fashion twitter or TweetDeck work wonders for first answer parties..  As proof that YES I answered AFTER the question was tweeted here is my justification to those people bitching, moaning, complaining... and by the way go get a life.. you can't win in every party. (Why is it a certain select group of people are always bitching when I win something? Jealousy is a bitch and karma will nip you in the butt three-fold..)

Disney Movie Rewards & Disc Registration

I am an avid collector of the Disney Movies, mostly the classics, but when a new movie comes out that isn't of the animated series I am likely to buy it, such as the Pirates series or Secretariat. I've always collected Disney movies, I had a huge collection of VHS tapes that I sold to a friend who has a daughter with a disability so she could watch them. She is confined to a wheelchair and heck they were going to her. I sold the whole collection for a quarter of what I could have gotten for it with a major collector, but after all I wasn't out to make money. I honestly just wanted to convert my collection to DVDs. In doing so as one is released from the vault I'll go and buy it. Now with all the hype of them all being released on Blu-Ray I've started buying the newer releases on Blu-Ray. But with buying Disney movies comes Disney Movie Rewards and also disc registration.
