I buy stuff there. Don’t take away your wife’s fun.  Think of it this way, if they break it it only cost a dollar.  I bought some kites there. Heres a example. The four year old who just got himself off training wheels on his bike ties the 20 dollar kite I got on sale to his bike to make it go. As boys are everything must have action, The dollar one thrashed wasn’t as painful.

Hi Goldie

Good to hear from you! Grandkids are some fun stuff. You and I are very fortunate – as is Alex Valdor – and I’m sure others here to have the extended family experience. I had to tell my wife that she can no longer buy kites from the “Dollar Store”. Complete crap. 🙁

My wife always tells me when she goes shopping for the grandchildren that she gets stuff at the dollar store. I’m thinking (but afraid to say) that if you go to the “Dollar Store” and spend $500, it”s still $500!!!! Too funny. 🙂

Good to hear some personal experiences here from all.

My brothers FB is down Dissapeared.

Got a message from a FB friend

Posted by goldielocks @ 20:24 on May 24, 2017  

We both have brothers ” mine a half brother” in the Phillipines with a wife and a kid. He said his brother trying to get out but taking a long time to get passports for the wife. Haven’t heard anything from mine. My half brother has a infant girl always posts Jewish stuff  as his mom Jewish. Big fight going on with muslims right now, FB friend said its under total martial law now. All planes diverted and Navy on alert.

Yep and Im enjoying it. Nope never crossed my mind to get a electronic one. Besides its a kids antique one.  Found him a real metal dump truck too. They’re all plastic now. All the grandkids have some antique toys including GI Joes” from 60s and their gear. One son in law  freaked when he saw it with the GI suitcase tried to put them up. Told him let him play with it. I got the ones still in the box for that for them. Buygold youd probaby like the one in the box with the scuba gear, This ones a plus Cuz it’s noisy.

Lol lol on the free upgrade. That can’t be as fun as the old fashioned ones though. I thought that was part of playing them? But quieter. Hope he keeps the volume low on the headphones so he doesn’t wind up with hearing damage later.

Goldie – LOL ! Just yesterday , one of my daughters emailed me …

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 17:00 on May 24, 2017  

that my fifteen year old grandson ( One of my nine grandchildren in three stable families ) has taken a portion of his part time earnings and good grade incentive rewards to buy a used drum set . As a youngster , almost 60 years ago , I was a professional drummer and practiced at home – much to the annoyance of neighbors .

Fortunately , today there are digital drum sets , so one can practice using headphones as Farmboy suggested .

I got the impression that my grandson’s drums are the old fashioned kind … for a month or two until the family decides to give his a free upgrade to digital .

well I’m glad today

This whole US economy is one big charade. Even the so called “global economy” that feeds off US taxpayers and US consumers is an even bigger charade. Too much instabilities with currency values etc. TPTB are doing a RAIN DANCE. 🙂

Maya … Re: Gardening – brush, weed removal

Posted by ipso facto @ 16:24 on May 24, 2017  

It may sound a bit odd but my hand gardening tools have a hierarchy. Basically tools which can damage me I take better care of and have more respect for.

In order of respect.

Axe – sharp, no rust
Machete – sharp, clean
Mattock – always clean of dirt
Shovel – clean of dirt
Hoe – clean
Rake – Ha I spit on you rake! 🙂

ipso facto @ 15:58 What Boat?

Posted by Farmboy @ 16:21 on May 24, 2017  

I assumed it was tied to the missing dock?

Don’t worry Macroman, if I see a boat come floating by I will latch onto it. What kind of ‘finder’s fee’ could I expect?


We have had about 6″ of rain the past couple days, and more to come. Wouldn’t surprise me to see a boat drifting down the street.

According to CNBS, the stock market loved that fact that the FED is going to ‘gradually’ dump a couple trillion. (HUH???!)

Don’t think the Dollar reacted with the same insane vigor.

Gold should have jumped a hundred bucks. It is the only currency with NO DEBT. Oh well, we take our breaks when we get them. Nice to see some green at the end of the day.

Congrats on the six grand kids. I bethca they will cut you a deal on 6 sets of drums ! LoL

Farmboy, Goldie

Posted by Buygold @ 15:59 on May 24, 2017  

Being a grandparent of six I can tell you I make every effort to get even with my kids. 🙂

Wow. Kind of a shockingly good close today. Who wouldda thunk it?

goldielocks @ 14:46 Being A Grandparent Is Legal License To Get Even With Your Kids. LOL

Posted by Farmboy @ 15:05 on May 24, 2017  

I’m sure the thought of an electronic keyboard with a set of headphones never even crossed your mind. 🙂

Looks like Bit O’ Gold

Im enjoying this for some reason.

Posted by goldielocks @ 14:46 on May 24, 2017  
  1. To divert grandkid from computers and TV I find something their interested in. My four year old grandson is mechanical athletic hands on kinda kid but likes music. So I got him a piano. Not a little one but his size needing a chair. Now my daughter doesn’t need a alarm clock. Every morning they wake to the clanging of musical mix match keys of little Mozart that radiates through the house. Could of been worse and got him a drum set.
