Fragmented Friday

Mommy's Idea
~  Exciting times around the small town:  Last week a black bear was on campus that MS attends.  It's rare for them to come into the big city.

~  Check this out:
That would be a tire track inside the local CVS.  A woman's brakes failed and she ended up crashing into the front of the store.
There were people inside, but luckily no one was hurt.

~  Last week in a post about my car, I mentioned that you never see a minivan pulled over.  Well, guess what I witnessed earlier this week?  Yep, a white minivan that apparently had been speeding.  I had to chuckle when I saw it!

~  Yesterday was "Violation Day", aka my yearly trek to the gynecologist's office.  Who knew that a papsmear was optional if your HPV screen came back negative?  I asked my dr. how often they are recommending that you have a paps if the screen was negative, and she said 3-5 years.  I'm not so sure I'd be comfortable with that.

~  I watched the new Dallas pilot yesterday on "On Demand".  I completely forgot it was on Wednesday night!  I LOVED that they kept the old theme song the same!

~  Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I didn't see Dallas...was it any good?

  2. Oh, funny about the minivan..wait! Is that what they're doing? Bringing DALLAS back?! WHAT?! I used to LOVE that show! Tell me everything!

  3. My doctor told me the same thing. I guess being older and all those negative results mean something. Of course still have to get the mammogram every year. That one didn't go away.

  4. Wow, you did have an interesting week. I laughed at the violation day comment as well.

  5. A couple of years ago, someone rammed the front of our CVS as well...on a Sunday morning not long after it had opened. I talked to the gal working the register. She said it freaked her out! Scary!!

  6. I had decided not to watch Dallas but maybe I will check it out On Demand. Thank God no one was hurt when that car crashed. Yes mine have been every 3 years for 15 years now! Although I am late right now in making an appt. Whether it's every year or every 3 years I still procastinate!

  7. I'm still having a pap every year ... I just feel better that way, and my doctor has suggested changing the schedule.

    I drive a minivan and was pulled over a couple of years ago. Two stereotypes broken: a little old lady pulled over and a mini van pulled over. ha!

  8. Black bears in town? Yikes! I was up late last night and watched the rerun of the pilot on TNT. I had to chuckle over Southfork Ranch. It truly is so much smaller in real life! My mom, sister, and I had a picture taken next to JR's big, blue satin bed - LOL

  9. Personally, I am not comfortable with the 3-5 year thing. I think that if they keep that policy we will begin to see more cases of ovarian cancer. I hate to say that. But, it is a fairly easy cancer to beat if caught early. If you catch it late, it is fatal. Checking it annually saves LIVES. 3-5 years only saves money. And not even that much money. ObamaCare at work again. This sucks monkeyballs.

  10. These comments made me smile as much as your fragments.

    I only watched Dallas with one eye, from across the room; I thought it was a rerun.haha

    I have an ancient history of cervical stuff; I hope they don't expect me to wait 3 to 5 years between paps, though now that you mention it, I do think I got to skip it last year. thanks for the reminder to ask about this.

  11. I thought all CVS stores had a drive thru?? :)
    Violation day? I love that. As much as I hate that, I would stick with once a year. Of course, our insurance companies would love to stifle that one too.
