Granny’s hot Tuesday

Good Morning All.
I need to get out of the kitchen.
I can’t stand this heat.
I could handle the weather, but ,when it is combined with my faulty internal thermostat ,it is far from nice.

A couple of my staff are complaining about the airconditioner.
They say it is giving them flu.
I have explained that flu is a germ.
They are not convinced.
They are going to have to suffer.
In silence.
The bloody thing stays on!
If I could I would strap it to my back.

Received this from a friend just now.

Ten Thoughts to Ponder

Number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.
Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Number 8
Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich

Number 7
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day, teach a person to use the Internet and they will not bother you for weeks.

Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky …not really good for anything, but you still cannot help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals, dying of nothing.

Number 4
All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00, and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?

Number 2
In the 60’s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

And The Number 1 Thought
Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers; what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

– – and as someone recently said to me: “Do not worry about old age; it does not last long.”

I like number seven.
Life is so much more fun now we have the internet.
Even though EVERYONE is beating me at scrabble.
You know who you are!

I am getting bored with my beach.
No…that is not true.
I love my beach.
I am getting bored with my photos.
I think I need a change of venue.
Watch this space.

Yesterday I had to go over my PDR with my boss.
PDR stands for personal development review…or something like that.
One of the questions was my future career aspirations.
I certainly don’t have any aspirations at this company.
Unless my boss’s job is up for grabs.
He thought that was very funny.
I will be looking at a whole new career.
Don’t think starving is a comfortable way to go.
Any brilliant ideas?


  1. I like No 6, simply because I have the stairs and the perfect person to shove down them! and boy would I smile! 🙂

    • Hehehe Supa…and I know who you are talking about too!

  2. LOL 🙂 Hide the airconditioning controls…why is it people have more sympathy when someone is cold than when they are hot? My argument use to be You can put more clothes on, I can’t take any more off 🙂

    Loved the Ten Thoughts to Ponder


    • Hello PIP….Now I have a mental image of the expressions on the faces of my staff if I started stripping!!!!

  3. Here’s an idea – become a writer. You’re a natural. Put out a funny tongue-in-cheek book “Life In Cape Town, As I See It” with all your fabulous photos. You won’t even need to play the lottery again!

    Love the list!

    • That’s an excellent idea!!!

      • Hi cindy…WHAT is an excellent idea?

    • Hi RD…You are too kind….writing is hard…don’t think I can do it…not since I have seen other posts!!

  4. #9 and #5 are so apt. We are all going to die . . . but only some of us will live.

    Thanks, Granny

    • Absolutey NR…I hope I am living…I think I am…

  5. I like #5. There are so many health nuts who think they are going to live forever and it just doesn’t happen that way. When it’s your time to go… 🙂

    • I agree with you Rose…I get so mad with the people coming from the gym…they act as if they own the road…they will probably have heart attacks long before us who are gentle to our bodies!

  6. David Letterman needs you! And you can do it with love for #7!

    Whatever change you come up with – it’ll be good, Granny. That’s a given!

    • Gosh I hope so Souldipper….the sky is the limit…bar sky DIVING of course!!!

  7. […] round out the day, Granny shared some quips in her post, Granny’s Hot Tuesday.  I especially […]

    • Thank you for the mention NR!!!

    • Stay COOL, Granny! 😀

      • Hello NR…it is MUCH better this evening but the flushes haven’t started yet!
