A TRIP TO Tesco’s. Supermarket
Yesterday I was at my local Tesco’s buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Biscuit, the Wonder Dog and was in the checkout line when the woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's bum and a car hit us both.
Tesco’s won't let me shop there anymore.
Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say. Usually, the consequences are worth it.

Perseids: "Last Chance" for Best Meteor Viewing Tonight: "Tonight will be your last chance to see the Perseid meteor shower at its peak—and the annual sky show is especially dazzling this year thanks to a one-time-only boost from Saturn, experts say.
The Perseids light up the night when Earth passes through a trail of debris left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle, which swings past the sun roughly every 130 years."

Boat loaded with tuna ends aground at Nye Beach - OregonLive.com: "Tuesday, as the Coast Guard investigated, Vitale searched for a buyer for 5 tons of albacore tuna they'd caught in the past 11 days of fishing.
That bounty had a lot to do with the predicament the two found themselves in, said Vitale, owner of the Lori Ann.
'Too many hours up,' he said, sheepishly. 'I went to sleep for little bit and then I heard it. Bang!'

Jacky was wondering who to get car insurance with and remarked she didn't know how to find a good company to go with.... I told her to go to google search and type in "insurance company reviews", That will bring up all the good and the bad customers have to say about their companies... Then you just pick one and go with them.
I thought everyone knew that search technique but she said you all might benefit from it. It also works for any item you are shopping for... Just type review on the end and you will get a list for that product.
