Two Identical Heating Pads Die Within Hours of Each Other (Elderly Woman Freezes Her Butt Off)

Sounds like a newspaper headline, doesn’t it? The only reason I’m posting about this is because it actually happened to me yesterday. It’s cold where I live and I need these things to keep my chair(s) warm, or any place I want to sit and not be uncomfortably cold. One heating pad is about 2 years old, and the other one is only 2 months old, give or take. They are the exact same brand and style. And they both chose yesterday to die. 

Now, I know that nowadays, most items are created to expire in a certain amount of time. Used to be when I was a kid (a rather long time ago) that this didn’t happen. Probably anybody with grey hair can remember those days, but today, everything—and I mean everything—dies right and left and we think nothing of it, other than being annoyed that we have to buy a new one. 

So I’m really quite impressed at the synchronization of the expiration date of these heating pads. Talk about perfect timing. It makes me wonder though . . . is it just me or does this sort of thing happen to anyone else?

Waist of Time

A few days ago, on some social media app, where a person can find all sorts of interesting misspellings and other and sundry grammar faux pas, I spied someone referring to a waste of time, but they spelled it the way I have in the title of this post. After having a good chuckle, it got me thinking. A waist of time. Wouldn’t that be the thin part of an hour glass?

Thanksgiving is on its Way!

So I just wanted to post a fun picture. Personally, I’m freezing my pa-toot off today as I’m in a small travel trailer near the border with Canada and we’re having a terrifically cold wind sweep down through the valley I’m in . . . kinda gets you right in the gizzard! I hope wherever you are, you’re warmer than I am. Maybe sitting beside a fire, sipping something hot . . . coffee, tea, cocoa, apple cider . . . maybe knitting on something . . . 🙂 Have a good day, Everyone!
