#backtoschool #typo #grammarpolice #ihop $99 #pancakes! What a #bargain… Oh wait. My kingdom for a #proofreader. πŸ˜” Something else that gets on my nerves: when people type “.99 cents.” That means 99/100ths of one cent. πŸ˜’

#dmv #friends #oldfriends #girlfriends #homegirl #over50 #oldenoughtoknowbetter Me + Robin! We’ve known each other since I was 14. Had a great dinner in #northbeach #maryland last week. It’s changed so much there! I used to go #fishing there when I was a kid in the #sixties. #bitd I didn’t even recognize the #rodandreel! 😳 Adorable #beachtown. #chesapeakebeach #chesapeakebay #chesapeake “Once in a while, you find someone who’ll be a friend #forever.” My son’s #godmother!

#nofilter #sunrays #august #latesummer I laid out in the #sun for about 35 minutes, no #sunblock, because 1. I look like a πŸ’‘ and 2. My #vitaminD is like 3 and it’s supposed to be like 100. This is my beautiful #heuchera #coralbells ‘Autumn Bride’ that I’ve had for about 4 years (this is actually a division). #autumn #bride See the pretty #weddingdress skirt-like #blooms? A #sweet #plant. This is my #backyard #deck. Oh, and I got a slight #sunburn from being outside for a bit over a half hour! It’s better than πŸ’‘

#foodiechats #foodie #bacon #eggsandwich #oldbay #bagel I call these #eggs tip it and drip it. My father called them basted eggs. I fry the bacon in a hot iron skillet. Then I fry the eggs in the hot #bacongrease. I tip the pan so the #grease pools at the front. Then, I use a soup spoon to ladle the bacon fat onto the yolks of the eggs as they fry, and at the same time, I tip the pan flat on the burner again. Tip it and drip it and repeat until the yolks start to get a white cooked coating (the hot grease cooks the yolks). Cook the yolks as hard or soft as you like. Be careful, wear an #apron, use a #potholder. #bagelsandwich #dmv #maryland #hon

I wasn’t going to #walk tonight because I #walked last night. But it was so beautiful out, such a clear #starrynight, that I put my #toes in the road. A little over 6 1/2 miles! Got 10k+ steps in! Last night a car beeped their horn at me like they were miffed I was #walking. Really? Sometimes people speed up when they see I’m trying to cross the street. We had the beloved #principal of our #elementaryschool got hit + killed last #Thanksgiving. Everyone was devastated. What do YOU do when there are #pedestrians? Stop well back + put on your hazard lights. Pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way. #sanderscorner #sces #loudouncounty #ashburn #virginia πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #summer #summernight #exercise

Everybody do… THE CLAM. I love this photo of #theking #elvispresley + adorable Shelley Fabares in Girl Happy. #elvis played Rusty Wells + #shelleyfabares played Valerie. I saw this movie in the #drivein when I was 4 years old! Remember the #driveinmovies? πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Paper soda pop cups with wax on the outside (the orange ones with the little flowers) paper straws, crushed ice? Orange soda, #hotdogs, skinny French fries that tasted great? We have a #driveintheater near us that’s still open! It even smells wonderfully #retro. Don’t forget: wear your #pajamas + take your #pillow! Pretend like you’re asleep in the back of the #stationwagon so you can sneak + watch the RATED M (for mature audiences) second movie! #sixties #1965 #1960s #madmen

#AAA (the American Automobile Association) did a study of how much it costs #taxpayers to clean up our #streets, #roads, + #highways every year because of #litterbugs (#lazy, thoughtless people who throw #garbage out their #car #windows + on the ground in our state + #nationalparks, etc.). It cost each man, woman, + child $199 in taxes in 2013 alone. That includes those of you who flick your #cigarette butts out the car window. 😑 In other countries I’ve seen people walking with their children + they unwrap #candy + throw the #trash on the ground right in front of their kids. More often I’m seeing that here in the #USA which makes me so sad. I was in Ontario #Canada + I was stunned at how clean the highways are there. But stop at any intersection in #America, look at the median strip or on the side of the road, + it’s really a national #shame. Please stop! Please don’t throw anything out your car window, especially not #cigarettebutts. Where do you think they go? They don’t go anywhere! They just trash up OUR beautiful country. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’”πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

My new to me #vintage #tin #breadbox! And isn’t that the sweetest little #plaid #Thermos? It’s only about 4 inches tall! There’s a Coke Zero at far left pretty much out of the shot but maybe you can get an idea of scale. I went #antiquing in #FrederickMD on Saturday! #junking #thrifting #vintagetin #plaidThermos #crochetedlace #vintagelace #doily I collect the plaid #SkotchKooler stuff and associated #goodies! I have a #miniature one (about 2 inches tall). ☺️❀️

Got my 10,000 steps in! #walking Took a long #walk *after* I mowed the front + back #lawns. Did lots of #weeding + cleaning up the #garden beds. Also put mulch down. Whew! A lot needed to be done because I hardly did any #gardening this #summer. It gave me such a sense of accomplishment. My son left for his last semester of #college. Wow… Life. 😳❀️
