This is the trouble, Bonesie, there are a lot of people that just don't realise how much things cost.  I've got an old printer/photocopier at home and obviously using that is cheaper than paying to have it done, but a lot of the time I have so much to print out or photocopy that I have to go to the library and even at their cheaper rates I can easily spend 8-10 on a batch of paperwork and then the same again to post it securely.  It mounts up; I have no idea why people think they can get things for free!  It's a good job you're a bad ass and you don't let them walk all over you :)

Yes I've heard that deceased offerings are a sign of affection, lol, I just find tripping over them at 6 in the morning a bit much :)  She put a dead mouse in my son's shoe once, lol.  She bought a live mouse in the other week, my son, bless him, so patient, he sat watching it, we put some bits of food in a plastic box and he sat there for ages until the mouse went in to get the food and then put a piece of cardboard over the top so we could take it outside.  Cute little thing, he was nibbling away on a piece of cheese looking quite happy :) xx

Thanks, Tupp!

I have to be a bad-ass in order to protect myself.

I know I'm not the only one who encounters this stupid A$$ $H!T!  One year, I was at a sheep and wool festival and was admiring some hand-made spinning wheels.  These spinning wheels were FULL SIZE for spinning yarn and a LOT of work went into building them!  Because of the way spinning wheels are designed, they HAVE TO BE BUILT BY HAND!  They CANNOT be mass-produced in a factory!  As a result, yes, spinning wheels can be pricey.  Anyway, the hand-built spinning wheels I was admiring are GORGEOUS and I was thinking about how much work went into each detail when this FOOL, standing next to me, looks at the price and starts screeching and throwing a lawn tantrum about how they COST TOO MUCH and the vendor is GREEDY!!!  I wanted to B!TCH-SLAP that A$$HOLE so bad!!!

Cats and living mice are CUTE!!!  Dead things....not so much!  Mouse in a shoe?!?!?!  EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

Lol, the mouse in the shoe wasn't a great moment, my son wasn't impressed!  Yes, being a bad ass is necessary, and I think people don't appreciate or understand craftsmanship anymore because so much crap is mass produced and identical to everything else, which is what makes it cheap.  We went on a day trip to France with a friend and we were admiring the pastries and cakes in the windows of the patisseries.  They're all handmade and are like little works of art, so amazing to look at and undoubtedly delicious.  But my friend was complaining about the price (we weren't even buying, just looking) and yes, it's like you say, these are handmade delicacies, not a packet of doughnuts from the supermarket.  One day I want to go to Paris, in the sunshine, and sit outside a cafe with a delicious handmade cake and a cafe au lait and pretend to be French :)  Lol xx

LOL!!!

I wish I could join you in Paris for that cake and cafe au lait.  Sound DELICIOUS!!!!

I have NO patience for idiots who don't appreciate craftmanship!  There was one time that someone sneered at a hand-crocheted afghan and said:  "I can get this cheaper at Walmart!"  Idiot got told:  "Then go to Walmart!  Bye-Bye!"

Aw, Bonesie, wouldn't that be amazing, Tup and Bones outside a cafe sipping lattes and eating pastries while the sun goes down behind the Eiffel Tower :)  Would be so incredible.  Ooh la laaing at passing French people :)  Lol.  Today I'll have to settle for a cup of tea on the front step whilst talking to the cat :)  Lol.

Yes it's a terrible shame that the art of craft and good workmanship is under appreciated.  I was washing dishes at a friend's after a bbq last week and she had some lovely old pans that her mum had given her twenty years earlier, still going strong, still look new.  It's getting harder and harder to pass things down as so much doesn't last as long any more.  And yes "I can get that cheaper in ..........." - well you're not getting that cheaper, you're getting a mass produced knock off that won't last you two winters!  I do think it works out cheaper in the long run to buy good quality - that's what I love finding in charity shops, a really nice piece that's well made and will last for ages but a fraction of the price you'd pay for it new - those are happy bargain days :) xx

Oh yeah!

My perspective is that if one pays a cheap price, they're going to get cheap $h!t.

My emotions are going all over the place right now and struggling with suicidal ideation.  I recently had a mammogram done and they saw something suspicious.  My biopsy is scheduled for July 9th and I'm scared.

Hi Bones,

I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you.  Please let us know when you get the results of the biopsy.

Thanks, Richard.

I'm scared out of my mind, not knowing what to expect.

Bones, I'm sorry to read this and wish there was something I could do other than say I am thinking of you and I hope everything turns out to be okay.  I would be scared too and I know how slowly time goes when you're waiting for something like this to be checked out.  You are always in my thoughts, and especially when I see a cute cat!  I know you would think they're cute, too :)  I am thinking of you.

Love Tupp xx
