Tuesday Tripe

Tripe rhymes with gripe and that is what I am going to do!

  1. I hate going to the grocery store but I did it for the week so it is done.
  2. Mountain Lake is empty and it looks ugly!  This was the lake at Kellerman’s in Dirty Dancing (love it or hate it, not the point here).
  3. I am already sick of all of the political perfectness being shoved down our throats and it isn’t any where near being over.
  4. I like a good conspiracy theory as much as the next girl but honestly some people should just not open their mouths!

That ought to be enough for now…Tune in next Tuesday.
