I’ve had bad vericose veins since I was in my teens, back in the 70′s. Would you believe that I had the veins stripped from my left leg when I was only 17? I regret having that done at such an early age. I should have waited until after I had finished my childbearing years. Be that as it may, I now find it necessary to wear compression hosiery. I have worn them for at least the past 23 years! So I consider myself somewhat of an expert on the subject.
I feel that buying the custom made for you hosiery a waste of money. I tried that once – I had to get a prescription for them and go to a pharmacy where they took my measurements. They sent away for the stockings. When they arrived they weren’t the right size, my insurance refused to pay for it, and the pharmacy said that once I opened the package that they were not returnable. So I was out over $100 for a pair of hosiery that I couldn’t ever wear!
Now I buy my compression hosiery online at Amazon.com. They have the best price, and you can buy the size you need without having to be professionally measured. And they cost a lot less than $100 a pair! With proper care, each pair can last several years, so they are worth their weight in gold to me!
Swiffer Wet Jet has a really cute and fun commercial that I love to see each and every time it comes on the television. For some reason I seem to see the commercial more often when I am at home on our Best Choice TV, but wherever I see it, I like it just the same!
In this commercial it shows a woman who has replaced her mop with a new Swiffer Wet Jet. The mop is heartbroken and devastated, with the “Baby Come Back” song playing in the background, it will do whatever it can to make its way back into the hands of its owner who threw it out for the Swiffer.
The mop is shown in the background, looking like a sad, lost little mop. It even makes a desperate attempt to win her heart over with flowers. The mop is torn apart as she dumps the flowers in the garbage, and forever ends their relationship. It is enough to make tears form in your eyes as you watch the sad little fellow.
This commercial is so funny! It drew me in well, and I was even convinved to try a Swiffer myself! I hope there are more of these cute commercials to come!
Today I found myself thinking about Crystal Gayle. I remember watching her sing when I was a child, and being amazed at her very long hair. I wondered how in the world she could take care of it! My hair is down to my waist and I don’t think it could grow as long as hers. I haven’t seen her in years; I wonder what she looks like now. I found a cute video of her performing with the Muppets a long time ago. I had never seen this before; I think it’s cute!
Improv Everywhere threw a surprise wedding reception for a random newly-married couple? The reception went very well! Nice gifts and all! It’s nice to know that there are nice people out there that would do something like that!
Jules sent me an email inviting me to come join her to see Weird Al in concert with her. She won some PNC BANK CENTER TICKETS in a raffle drawing and she knows that I am a great fan of Weird Al. I am afraid that I am going to have to turn down her generous offer because my hubby has already planned a big party here at the house that weekend, and I don’t want to leave the house at the mercy of his friends! The last time he threw a party and promised to take care of all of the details, it was a huge disaster!
Sometimes I envy Jules, being so close to areas that have fun concerts. I know she already has bought New Meadowlands Stadium Ticketsto see Bon Jovi in concert! Imagine that, seeing Weird Al and Bon Jovi in the same week!
And she tells me that she is going to a college roomie reunion in Chicago this October; they’ve already bought Chicago Theatre Ticketsto see Cheech & Chong! She sure knows how to have a good time!
