The good stuff

Hiya.  Just wanted to say that I took your advice and bought the good chocolate.  I really had no choice because I ate the entire box of rock hard baking chocolate, and Walgreens has Dove on sale.  Can't pass up a sale.  So I thank you for encouraging me, even though I'm trying to lose weight, because today I'm making these.
Jalapeno peppers stuffed with a link of cooked breakfast sausage.  Really good.  And this year's crop - REALLY hot.  One pepper was too small and no matter how I smashed that link, it was hanging out too far.  So I broke off the end (it was already in the pepper) and popped it in my mouth. Olive oil on bread takes too long when flames are shooting from your non existent dried up lips. Only have gray fat-free milk. No yogurt opened either.  But my usual go-to heat reducer was back in the house!  Dark chocolate works wonders and is quicker than any other remedy.  Ahhh.  And just to make sure the heat stays away, I had three more.  The peppers  usually aren't as hot once baked.  We'll see.
One other strange thing.  I keep feeling something bouncing on my head.  I rarely brush my hair (it does no good other than make it bushier) and when I looked in the mirror to see if a creature had latched on, I found the culprit.  There is one goofy bunch of hair that belongs in the back and is now growing toward my face. 
 
So I wet it and put it where it should be...look out....it's creeping back.....ready to fall...boom.
 
.
It comes forward with a little loop and falls down into my bangs.  It bounces.  So not only do I have errant eyebrow hairs pointing northeast, my hair is now creating it's own direction.  I tried everything, nothing kept it back.  It's like a slinky flipping forward.  I may cut the clump close to my scalp.  No one will ever know.
 
Back at week's end with a sis report.
 
Take care!!
Thanks for visiting.

I cut little chunks out of my hair all the time and the only person who notices is the "professional" hair-cutter! Just wait until your chin hairs also start reaching out, trying to meet up with their kin that live above your lip - it is NO FUN!

I am guessing you will be cutting it. ;)

I know about the "wild" eyebrow hairs and the chin hairs too. Getting "olden" is not great.. The "golden years" aren't supposed to be like this..
Enjoy your chocolate, Marly. Fiber one bars have great chocolate chips in them and the bars do the trick too.
You'll figure out something to do with those hairs.. I'm just glad it wasn't some kind of bug moving around on your head.
Will be thinking about you and your sister.. I hope the Advil is working for your knee.

I have been saying for years -with the amount of hair I am growing in odd places - I must be turning into an ape. I think they have evolution backwards!

Ok you killed me with the wild strands of hair...and considering cutting it to the scalp. Funny lady!!

Dear Marly, I think you are the only person on the planet that could make me laugh on a day like today. I thank you tenfold and so glad the house has chocolate again! Wishing your sister good luck and you take care too, Debbie in IL

First things first, I'm so relieved to hear that you got the good chocolate, lol. I cut a chunk of my hair at the scalp once and my daughters threw a fit! Then I had to deal with the short hair sticking straight up when it started growing back. So how were the peppers after you cooked them?

Oh my gosh, you are too funny! I have curly hair too and cut mine all the time when it won't behave. Go ahead Marly, no one will ever notice :O) Glad to hear you got the good chocolate and that it was available to soothe your poor mouth, hope that the jalapenos cooled down some when cooked! Sending healing energy to your sis, hope everything goes well for her.

Love your story Marly about your hair and the pepper--drinking milk will help too.
I cut my eyebrows too when they are growing too wild.
All the best for your sister and you too and good luck with your pears -hope you take a picture how they are looking with your bells.
greetings,Truus from the Netherlands
