Senior Moments

SHE's been having senior moments, but this afternoon takes the cake!

The recycle bin goes out tonight.  There was space, so SHE decided to put some old boxes in.
One was the Christmas box My Ernie sent us.
It still had the wrapping paper and bubble wrap in it,
So SHE pulled the paper out
and found
a small wrapped package.
It has been in the bottom of the box for a MONTH!
SHE thought, from the feel, that it was a bandana
BUT was very surprised to find:
scottie pins and magnets for HERSELF!
Would you believe it?
A whole MONTH after Christmas!
Ernie must have wondered what happened to that part of the present!

This senior moment stuff is a worry!


  1. Oh those Scottie pins and magnet are just beautiful. How kind of Ernie.
    And as for those senior moments, Gail says you just have to cut HER some slack. (I think this is known as 'do as you would be done by'.)
    Toodle pip!

  2. omd omd omd... how good that she checked the box before it went the way of no return... humans huh? that would never happen if we would be allowed to open the parcels ....

  3. Wow, that was close, good job SHE doubled checked!
    Aren't they GREAT pins, that Ernie is a pawsome shopper
    Loves and licky kisses

  4. Oh my goodness! Thank doG she discovered these treasures before they were lost forever!

  5. MOLMOLMOL tell HER welcomed to the club....of Sr. Moments.
    Years ago mom did something similar with a package from my Loula (her mom). The day before trash day Loula asked mom is so and so was a good fit. Mom said what? Turns out Loula put all of mom's presents in a huge Christmas bag all wrapped in white tissue.
    the bag was light so mom thought the last tissue was cushioning.
    It wasn't it was a sweater.
    So from that year on Loula would include a note on her packages,
    "don't throw anything away and check all the tissue."!
    Hugs madi
    PS we love the surprise gift

  6. Well, at least she found it before it made it on to the big truck. Very cute pressies.

  7. Where is the little white scottie magnet that goes with the black scottie magnet ~ they attract and repeal each other to move. I don't see the white one! Maybe you had better check the garbage again. Wonder gifts.
