Granny needs exercise

Hello All.

Yes…Jasmine and I need exercise.
Before I went home last evening I drove down to the beach.
Only there wasn’t a beach.
The waves were right up to the dunes.
I got out the car to take a couple of photos.
The wind was coming straight off the Atlantic.
I thought Hell NO!
Poor dog.
I think she has almost given up hope of a walk.

When I was in Port Elizabeth visiting my Mom in January, she gave me some of her nightgowns.
My granddaughter grabbed the summer ones.
I was left with this huge,heavy blue one.
Brand new.
Floor length.
Long sleeves.
I normally wear a night shirt or a t.shirt.
Mex took one horrified look when I put the thing on and said GET RID OF IT!
I can fit into it three times.
He said it is a complete turnoff.
I am keeping it.
It beats a headache!

Darn it all.
Work is calling.
Have to run.
Oh ok…shuffle.


  1. *Looks at own nightgown collection with sudden clarity*
    Stay warm, my friend, whatever it takes. xxx

  2. LOL! Yeah, there are times when we women need that big oversized nightgown LOL! You’re too funny!! πŸ˜€

    • I had a feeling you would understand RD. πŸ™‚

  3. A good warm nightie is always a good idea especially when one need to keep the bottom half warm.
    I don’t have good warm nighties but there’s enough to keep out the cold.
    I loved your tale and I am sorry that Jasmine did not get the walk she was so looking forward to.
    love to you bothxxxxx


  4. can I be on your list of those who visit from afar…Bulgaria is afar

    • I would love to put you there Patrecia…I don’t know HOW to do it!

  5. Poor Jasmine.
    Poor Mex.

    You should exercise with one or the other! πŸ˜‰

    • Hehehe NR…in this weather mex is the better option!

  6. I got more exercise than I needed yesterday. I try to walk the dogs a little bit everyday but more often than not that doesn’t happen. So after the sun went down last night I took Snorty and Darla for a walk. The first half of the walk isn’t so easy with them pulling and roaring to go. The last half is slightly calmer. After I got home my daughter called and wanted me to help her walk her dogs! Now those little boogers are pullers. I should have lost several pounds last night. And it was not any cooler after dark.

    • You are a good Mommy Linda….I would have told her to walk her own dogs!

  7. Poor Jasmine – she needs some games somewhere πŸ˜‰

    Poor Mex, he hasn’t worked out that a big nightie comes off so easily and the insides are still warm πŸ˜‰

    • Jasmine is doing ok Sidey….will post just now.

  8. Who doesn’t love naked and warm? But sometimes we just need a little help!

    • Hi Souldipper…this nightgown is serious help…weighs a ton!

  9. Oh, what a beautiful place you live ! the beach is beautiful. I don’t wear the nightgowns-I have my favorite comfy t-shirts-! and lots of blankets and pillows for staying warm !!

    Stay warm ! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Penny…I know…truly beautiful.

  10. I must be slipping. I read, “it beats a headache” … what the hell? I read it three times before I got the joke. Very funny …

  11. I’m sitting in my Christmas nightie πŸ™‚
