I have come to realize that a twelve-hundred dollar mattress will sag just as much as a two-hundred dollar mattress. The amount shelled out for the mattress will not affect the amount of back pain I suffer from sleeping on it.

Fat people can sag even the best mattress in double-quick time.

I should be paid to test mattresses.

The best mattress I ever had is still in great condition. It cost a few-hundred dollars, didn't have any fancy springs, pillow top, or other extras. It's just a mattress. It's on my old bed in the guest room/Mum's room, and she sleeps fine on it when she stays. I may have to start sleeping on it again, if I want to continue walking upright.

A five-year-old bot can learn everything there is to know about dinosaurs in fifteen minutes, but must be told two-thousand four-hundred sixty-three times that dirty laundry goes in the basket.

Rice Krispies treats are sticky.

Pressing them into a glass pan with your hands is even stickier, but the clean-up sure is fun!

I like deviled eggs.

Peeling the eggs while they're still hot yields two results - first, the peels come off beautifully and second, you might get steam burns. I'm just saying.

I always have extra filling for deviled eggs. I don't like wasting it.

Deviled egg filling tastes mighty fine on a Triscuit.

Fresh picked basil smells loverly.

Chopped basil and garlic could well be a tonic for depression.

Cooking all day, making simple things to bring to the potluck Independence Day pool party (things you know people will love because they always ask you for them and devour them quickly) and one or two things to keep at home for later, is a tonic for depression.

Man, I just ate and now I'm hungry again. Love deviled eggs also.

A good mattress is a joy forever.

I like me older, cheaper mattress better, too. Thank goodness it's still here in the house for the end of the pregnancy when I always take up the whole bed anyway!

Um, deviled eggs, yum, um, might have to make some myself, since I couldn't possibly wait long enough to get some of yours...

Hope your picnic offerings were a hit, Miss Kyddryn, but by the sound of things, how could they NOT be?
