Hubert, the little scamp

Hello my Saturday raviolis. I want to share with you a commerical for Mr Bubble that I used to watch on TV when I was a little girl.
It is in black and white because that is the way television used to look when I was little. This commerical always made me laugh for a lot of reasons. Can you pick them out?

Hope you get lots of giggles from this and remember grandma-ma loves you.

Word of the Week Wednesday

Hello my Wednesday raviolis.  Today's word may seem a little silly to you, it is


This is the type of goldfish you probably know best.

Grandma-ma was in Walmart yesterday buying some fish food and they had these really neat species of goldfish in one of their tanks.  It is called a Black Moor Goldfish.

Look at the big bug-eyes on this goldfish?  How neat is this?  Now you may ask why this is called a goldfish when it isn't gold.  Very good question.  "Goldfish" is a species of fish and were many of their kind are a brilliant gold color, it is the type of fish that makes them a goldfish.   The Black Moor Goldfish is one of the most beautiful types of goldfish and is a beautiful black velvet in color.   The Black Moor is a popular and hardy fish which is generally easy to care for.  The Black Moor can be kept with other types of goldfish and will swim in a school with them. He also gets along with many other types of fish and can be kept easily in a community tank, however you must be aware that they like to dig and may uproot many of your plants and other decorations.  Grandma-ma took this picture of this big, bug-eyed beauty while he was swimming around in the Walmart tank.
I think they are funny and have big cartoon like faces with their big bulging eyes.  They were very friendly and would swim right up to the tank wall to look at you.  So let's use the word goldfish in three sentences today.  Here is grandma-ma's first sentence:

The Black Moor is a pretty goldfish with big eyes.

Have a goldfishee day my ravs.  Love Grandma-ma

Word of the Week Wednesday

Oh My goodness, my Wednesday raviolis.  It has been 8 days since Grandma-ma last posted on your blog.  She has been running around like a chicken with her head cut off.  She is moving so fast that she has to slow down to speed up.  I bet you are all just as busy. The months of November and December are always very busy with all of the wonderful holidays that will soon be here. So, today's word is


Yes, that is a great word for all of us.  When we are so busy that we don't know what to do next, we need to STOP.  Breathe in and breathe out slowly and deeply. 

Stretch our arms and legs out long and lean, lay down on your bed or the floor and stretch again.  Enjoy the beautiful day that we have with friends or by yourself...nothing wrong with a little alone time.

This frog sure knows how to relax.  So are we understanding what the word "relax"means?  To slow down, ease up on what you do, be less rigid, release.  So here is grandma-ma's first sentence using the word relax: 

Grandma-ma has another busy day today, but when she gets home, she is going to kiss Kota on the head, make some eggy bread for supper, spread out on the sofa and relax.

Ahhhh, that feel good already.  Love to all of you my relaxing raviolis and remember, no matter how busy or how relaxed grandma-ma may be, she always loves you very much!  Love Grandma-ma
