  3. yay for first! :)

    So you have a lava lamp packed away? Your kids would probably love it!

    I thought the boys would get home from school and really love this. They didn't give it a second look. Sigh. lol....

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, we bought it on our honeymoon. :) They probably would think it was great!! Maybe your boys will notice it after a while. :) Did you have a good day?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I've had a headache all day. ugh. I never have a little headache..just huge ones that last two days. :( Other than that, it's been a nice day! lol.

    Yes, I'm hoping this weekend they'll notice it more. They have an agenda and routine in mind when they get off the bus, so they weren't interested in diverting from that. :)

    It's snowing! :)

  6. Ooh sorry about the headache.

    Wanna hear about my day?

    One of my darling children erased all the pictures on my camera...including some that were not saved elsewhere. rrrrrrr I was SO UPSET!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's snowing here too. Which is something to smile about. :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ugh...sorry about the photos. :(

    ReplyDelete
  9. Haven't seen a lava lamp in years - what fun. I'm sure the boys will love it if they do stop to look.

  13. Wow, I'm having sixties flashbacks, man...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Betsy! THAT is so funny...we had a lava lamp...No 1 son made sure we did NOT very quickly. :) -SIGH-

    ReplyDelete
  15. Gloria ~ how is your dad?

    Kitty ~ it's blue with yellow goo

    Silver ~ man? lol...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Jill ~ what? what's with the lamp? lol... that cracks me up. I'll let you know what happens over here. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah, man, it's like, sixties talk, you dig it?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Silver....like totally go with the flow--is that a sixties phrase?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Betsy he is on surgery right now, is his heart.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Betsy, That lamp would look SO good in a room with a beaded curtain door. :) (sorry)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Rebecca, "go with the flow" is actually a seventies phrase, but you were right about the beaded curtains!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Silver, Oops, I'm mixing my historical slang. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. You're forgiven, Rebecca. You weren't around for any of it. You're just a baby, remember?

    ReplyDelete
  24. As a kid in the sixties I thought they were so magical. We were easily entertained and science wasn't advance that much back then.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh yes, I forgot.......now where did I put my pacifier? :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. One of those damned chickens probably has it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If they do I would have to take a picture, and blog about it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. A croaking chicken with a pacifier? lol....

    ReplyDelete
  29. If it was bright colored they would probably peck at it. :) The pacifier addict in this house would NOT be pleased about sharing them with the chickens. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. Gloria ~ hope his surgery goes well. I'm praying for him! :)

    Okay didn't really work
    But might give a smirk
    Never had one of them though
    Sure the cat would knock it over with ease as it began to flow
    Another nice addition to your hall
    In the dark will even brighten a wall

    ReplyDelete
  32. Pat ~ yeah, I gave a smirk to you
    and a laugh, too!
    Wouldn't be a good thing
    for the cats to give the lava lamp a ring
    Letting the goo run out on the floor
    and it wouldn't work any more.
    ha.

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOVE the new home you found for the lava lamp! Do not be alarmed if I become distracted by it and spend hours looking at its beauty!Ha :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. so nice to add some colors and light Betsy, especially in this time of the year ... i hope your headache is gone ... have a lovely weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's like really groovy man and the colors are groovin to the music. Yeah man my mind is juz gettin blown away by those freaking floatin globs. Man it is such a sweet thing to sit here chillin out watching the lava lamp. Whoa I can't get up, does someone got any snacky things. I am like really getting the munchies ya know and wow did you see how it moved. Whoa it is like blowin my mind. Where are the Twinkies man?

    Peace baby peace.

    God bless.

    ReplyDelete
  36. @Mrsupole: So, man, it's like, not just me? Far out, man, really groovy! Peace,

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lauren ~ think I need one for the front room? :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Silver and Mrs. U ~ you guys are the oldies but goodies!:)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks a lot Betsy, he is better.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi, Gloria! Oh, I'm so glad! You're probably tired. Did you get to go home and sleep?

    ReplyDelete
  41. You've made a beautiful display of your collection. I like each piece.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, I'm laughing so hard at all the sixties jargon floating around your comments Betsy. Maybe you should put some flower power in your sidebar to make all the "ahem" more mature people feel at home. :) Oh, but then you would have to put pacifiers there for my age group.....never mind just be yourself---we like you that way. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a groovy idea, Rebecca. Maybe a peace sign, too. How about a playlist featuring The Monkeys? :) (you may have to google them. ha.)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Like "hey hey we're the monkeys" that song?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes Betsy today Im in home the kids were to see him, but he doesnt many visits cause he is so tired too!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You young'uns need lessons, man. It's the Monkees, haha! And they weren't considered a "real" group by the hipsters, man. We grooved on Jimi, Janis, Cream, the Doors, Traffic, the Jefferson Airplane... Power to the people! Right on!

    ReplyDelete
  47. haha...sorry! They were before my time, too. But I like their music! MonkEES.

    Gloria ~ glad he's ok...now he needs rest. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Is it my fault they didn't know how to spell monkey? :P

    ReplyDelete
  49. Even I have to admit that the sixties had some fun music. :0

    ReplyDelete
  50. haha...I hope that's not your fault! That's a lot of guilt to place on a baby. lol...

    ReplyDelete
  51. You're both forgiven, haha! Rebecca wasn't even born yet, and Betsy was just a little kitten.

    Rebecca, I'll bet you don't like that "other" group, the one that didn't know how to spell "beetles," huh?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oops I meant to smile after my last comment, not leave my mouth hanging open. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Does anybody know if you can leave a lava lamp on all the time? We haven't turned it off yet..it seems fine but didn't know if that's safe or not. It isn't around anything flamable.

    ReplyDelete
  54. You could do a shocked face like this..

    =O

    ReplyDelete
  55. I don't think it will harm anything, but I probably wouldn't do it, especially at night when everyone's in bed. Plus. it's always interesting to see the weird shapes you get while the "lava" is warming up after you turn it back on, too.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Rebecca, I don't think anyone was surprised to see you with your mouth open. :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. yeah, that's what I was thinking. I actually thought The Mister would turn it off when he came to bed, but it was still on in the morning. Wouldn't want the house to burn down.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Im at home Betsy cause I have to do many things, but Im talking with my Mom and Esperanza and he is OK but so tired. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like some beetles songs.

    Not sure about the lava lamp. I do know if you move them when they are still warm that the water gets cloudy, and messed up. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Well, my mouth is usually in motion when it's open, not hanging slack jawed like I overdosed on Vicadin. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I answer because Im not sure my comment was here, so many about sixties:)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love beatles too but I was little girl, ha,ha

    ReplyDelete
  63. So glad your dad is better Gloria!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Beatles, Rebecca. *sigh Kids nowadays!

    @Gloria: In between all our goofy comments, Gloria, we're reading your updates about your Dad. We're all praying for him, I'm sure.

    ReplyDelete
  65. oops, maybe I should drink more coffee. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Every adult on the planet should drink more coffee.

    Which reminds me, I need a refill.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Ok Gloria ~ thanks for letting me know how he is. After you get stuff done, you should take a nap, dear. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Guess, what Betsy, I get to go have coffee with a couple other ladies this afternoon. Makes me SO HAPPY!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. WEll........I dont know (Im kidding I know)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Silver, you should have that quote made into a t-shirt. I would buy one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. uhuh Betsy if you see my home now two days I dont make anything, but a nice is tempting, ha

    ReplyDelete
  72. Nice, Rebecca. That will be fun. I'm doing that after church in the morning with 2 girlfriends...it's become a weekly tradition!

    ReplyDelete
  73. You're lucky Betsy, I do this maybe once or twice a year--need to do it more often.......Gloria, don't worry about your house....just take a nap, Rebecca, and Betsy said you should, and I'm pretty sure Silver agrees. :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Gloria ~ I'm sure...when something like that happens, our homes seem to fall apart, don't they? Everything gets behind...laundry, cleaning, ..I always say it looks like a bomb went off in the house. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  75. @Rebecca: You mean, just "Every adult on the planet should drink more coffee?" Or the whole thing, "Every adult on the planet should drink more coffee." (Then, in smaller print.) "Which reminds me, I need a refill." ???

    ReplyDelete
  76. yeah, that is one thing about housework...it will wait for you. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yeah, Gloria. Take a nap. You deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Well, I meant just the first line, but I like the smaller print suggestion better--if I wore a t-shirt like that everyone who knows me would think it fit--my personality is rather scatterbrained. Don't you DARE say I know. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yes Betsy You saw my house maybe with a camera?? ha,ha
    Wel I laundry, make some beds, wash plates (a lot) and make me a sandwich that Im eating here, but I have a lot to do , sigh!
    Thanks silver I would like maybe I will try!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I know!

    (ducks) lol...

    I'd wear that t-shirt, too~

    ReplyDelete
  81. Gloria ~ sounds like you're getting a handle on it. How long does your dad have to stay in the hospital?

    ReplyDelete
  82. And I forget to say you Betsy my son is in the Clinic he sprained his leg playing soccer and going to have to wear a special boot for 10 days, of course he is not happy!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Maybe until tomorrow He is still in a special room at the hospital

    ReplyDelete
  84. Betsy!!!! I meant Silver, I didn't think you had it in you.

    Is it THAT obvious?

    My scatterbrainedness? :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh my Gloria, you sure are having a rough time right now!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Gloria ~ oh no! Too bad about your son. My Taylor was always spraining his ankles in sports.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Silver, you should put some flower power on your t-shirt. :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Rebecca ~ lol...no, just kidding. I've never thought of you as scatterbrained. :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. No thanks, flower power is forty years out of date. My t-shirt would speak to the ages.

    ReplyDelete
  90. (And has everybody noticed that I'm being a total gentleman and totally staying out of the "Is Rebecca scatterbrained?" conversation?)

    ReplyDelete
  91. yeah I thkin gerardo is his second time (lol) but in summmer is difficult but you know the boys!

    ReplyDelete
  92. So, tell us, would there be a picture on the t-shirt, or just your immortal words about coffee. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Someone pat Silver on the back. :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Well, there sure wouldn't be a photo of me, if that's what you're asking!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Gloria ~ you can set gerardo and your dad up together when they both get home as the 2 patients. :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. A large steaming cup of joe perhaps? :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. Yeah, someone pat me on the back. Actually, I could use a good backrub...

    ReplyDelete
  98. You're only getting a pat, silly.
    lol....

    ReplyDelete
  99. Silver ~ you need a t-shirt that says "Grouchy without sweetener"

    hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  100. Only a pat? Thought I deserved a little more. I've tried to be so nice lately, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  101. give him an inch?

    I've said that EXACT saying to him before! lol....

    ReplyDelete
  102. hahahahahahahaha.......oh, maybe not quite THAT funny. :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Oh Betsy would be terrible. I think gerardo will be walking anyway! Also with a boot!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Gloria ~ well, if he has to elevate it and keep ice on it, you could make him sit in with grandpa. lol. They could keep each other company.

    ReplyDelete
  105. You guys are so much fun!!! I gotta go get ready for my coffee date. :)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I have always wanted to have one - this is a beaut! I read that it's best they not be on for more than eight hours, but the odd leaving on overnight is fine, I'm sure. Must find out where to buy one! Hope you are well, Betsy.

    xxx Suzanne

    ReplyDelete
  107. Suza! How are you, dear?

    Yes, I think we'll turn it off at night from now on. But I'm really enjoying the lamp...too fun!

    ReplyDelete
  108. When we were younger, my "cool" aunt had a lava lamp. If we were good, she would turn it on for us. Obviously we were easily entertained. hahaha

    Happy Weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Jax ~ weren't we all? Life was so much simpler then! ha. I'm tempted to buy another one for my desk, so I can enjoy it while I'm sitting here!

    ReplyDelete
  110. They make mini lava lamps! That would be perfect for your desk, I'll bet!

    ReplyDelete
  111. This one I bought is pretty small. It's not one of those huge heavy ones. I think they've improved them this time around. But yes, a small one would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Yea, I guess we were. Sad part is...I still am!! Somehow I think that a lava lamp would still mesmerize me. Maybe that's my inner hippie talking...haha

    I'm all for you buying another one. They're awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Me, too Jax. It entertained me all day yesterday! ha.

    I'll let you all know if I find a little one for my desk. :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. Hi Betsy ~ Hope your headache is gone by now. I'm a little late in commenting..

    Tomorrow is a 6 year anniversary for our Pastor being at the church, so I'm making another basket for him. Our friend Tom really enjoyed his Birthday Basket, and I'm sure having fun making them.

    We had a Lava lamp when I was in college in the dorm, and we decided the first one to get married would get the ironing board and pole lamp, so my friend ended up with the Lava lamp, cause I was the first to marry!!!! I still have the ironing board...can you believe that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Last year I met the creators of the Lava lamp at a birthday party for a friend's 50th. They gave us little lava lamps as party favors...i love them!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Anita ~ oh, how very fun! What neat party favors, too!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Without a doubt! Then I'll have something exciting to watch while Tay watches football!
