woo hoo

"You never know who you'll meet in the store" was the thing I heard as I rushed toward the Musinex aisle.  I stopped and turned to see a guy I used to have (may still have a bit of that) a teeny tiny crush on.  He is truly about 6'8.  My chest comes to his waist and the top of my head to maybe the bottom of his shirt pocket for pity sakes but then, I'm a pip squeak.

What is there about short women and tall men?  They find one another.  But I digress.  When I turned I got three or four smoochies right there in the aisle of the store.  And huggles too.  Can't best that!  :-) We were blocking the way though with our Mutt and Jeff imitation.  (only 100 years old and above will know who Mutt and Jeff were).  Regaining a sense of decorum that went sadly missing I headed on my way,  gladdened a bit as I was a Gloomy Gertie just prior to that.  (thinkin' about stuff).

Here is a flower I captured on the camera a few weeks ago.

I am studying for my HAM Radio license.  I'm presently reading up on band width, speeds of sound, no surprise, is factored in there..but I am studying and I have come to exam question types and I'm presently going through those.  Maybe by a month's time I can take the exam.  So wish me luck and speaking of luck, with any at all, I may stop making a spectacle of myself in the aisles of store.  (nah..)

  1. I am much taller than my wife and though I have no idea what she sees in me I'm glad for the mysterious attraction! My grand dad was an avid HAM radio operator. He passed away and we found a certificate he had received that was a very rare achievement in radio circles...we had no idea that he wasn't just a dabbler but an accomplished operator. Have a great day Carole!

  2. Now that is the kind of spectacle I would like. Sounds very interesting Twin. I should like to make such a spectacle.

    Good luck with getting the ham license. Do you have a ham radio? xoxo

  3. From what I here about getting the Ham Radio licence is that one must draw out diagrams about different electronic circuitry, in the tests, to me that would be the hard part. I hope you have someone to help you out. Good luck on your endeavor.

  4. You made a spectacular of yourself, and with nobody to take pictures! Drat the luck! :-) I remember not only Mutt & Jeff, but also Mandrake the Magician and the Toonerville Trolley. In addition, I was going to say Bringing Up Father (Maggie & Jiggs), but that lasted until 2000, although I had not seen it for years. Best of luck getting your ham license...you can do it! When you get your license, does that mean you will attend the Hamvention in Dayton next year?

    2. We are about 7 miles/15 minutes away from Hara Arena (that time may be optimistic by a few minutes...it is from Mapquest). Need a place to stay? The tropical plants will be out on the patio by then. The coffee maker collection stays indoors, though. :-)

  8. I think that it's so exciting you are studying to be a Ham! I'll look forward to hearing about all your interesting esperiences, and I'm sure there will be many. Sounds like a tough course to me and way over my head, but you are very smart, so you'll get it.

  9. Just stopping by to say hello Carole and see what you are up too. Sounds like an interesting encounter you had. :)

    Steve has or had a Ham Radio License but sold his radio and antena a couple of years ago. Didn't really need it anymore. Good Luck with getting your license. It is good that you have others in the family that can help you if need be.
    Love the photo of the flower as well. Beautiful and well composed.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.
    Dianne :)

    1. I thought I would do with a 2 meter band radio as I have to work my way up thru the ranks as it were. Technician license then General.

      Did Steve just lose interest?

  11. Darla and her husband are the "Mutt and Jeff" type. We girls are also of the pipsqueak stature. What a nice 'run in'. Always good to catch up and see how that old crush turned out.

  12. How nice you ran into someone you like :-)

    I did not know you need a license for ham radio. But how exciting! I wish you luck with the exam!!

  13. Being quite tall myself, I always wondered why tall men go for short women?? Not fair lol

    Am interested to know why the interest in HAM? Is it popular in the US?

  14. How nice to run into such a nice (and tall!) person at the store. :)

    Good luck with your Ham Radio exam!

  15. Hey Carole thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I didn't realize word vert... was even on. I hate those things. Anyway I took care of it and it is no longer there. Could you just send a test message to check it and make sure the change was made successfully. Thanks, I appreciate it.
