Okay...we have had a alarm system in our home for some time.  We got it for protection cause of some of the unsavory characters my one daughter was involved with at one point in her life.  I rather like having it but there are times when I could chuck it all....There was the time when our friends were visiting and they just happened to be black.  There are not many blacks in this area but that is okay.  They are great people and we always have a ball when they come.  Anyway, my friend and I went shopping and our husbands went off walking in the woods.  Her husband forgot his hat and went back to the house while my husband waited in the woods.  John walked in our house and alarms started going off.  There he was, in the middle of he boonies, the only black man for about twenty miles and he was in a white family's house with alarms going off.  The police showed up and were about to collar him when my husband came in to see what was taking him so long....

Not long after that, my daughter was cooking and the alarm went off.  We ended up with the fire truck at our door.  They laughed when I said, my daughter is cooking...My daughter was not amused.

A few days ago, my husband and I were off enjoying our afternoon out.  We came back to see the lights flashing on our phone.  The alarm company had called to say they dispatched the police and found nothing in our home but a white cat roaming around.  My husband forgot we have a 'guest' kitty for a few days and set the alarm for 'away' instead of stay.   I am glad it was him who set the alarm that time.  LOL

Well, both my daughters will be moved out tomorrow. I will have the house to myself and I am anxious to get to both their rooms this week and get them back to the way it was before.  My daughter says weekends will be for grandma and they will bring alix down then.  I think that will be enough for me. *s*

One of my old friends called this morning and I was so glad to hear from her.  She spent about an hour getting me all caught up on the news around her house.  We used to spend almost every weekend together but after her husband died, we drifted apart. We do alot of phoning but that is about it.  I hope to go down to see her next month. 

Alix decided to model my wigs and this is one of her I thought I would share.


  1. Garnet...very cute model you have there. I laughed at the story of your friend setting off the alarm. It's not funny but it is hilarious if you know what I mean. Glad all is well in PA. I just finished Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It was great but I was sad the way it ended. Lots of twists and turns. Thanks for referring it! Have a good week.

  2. Hi Garnet, still smiling over the alarm stories, too funny but then they didn't happen to me. Your granddaughter is so cute.....:-)Hugs

  3. That's some head of hair Alix has, LOL!!! It looks cute on her! Sorry about your alarm troubles, ain't technology great?!!
    I can imagine you will be a bit excited to have the house to yourself for a while Garnet, ENJOY!!
