Most of us are starting to shop and making our list and checking it twice and if your like me there is always someone on the list that has everything or just impossible to decide what to give them.
This past month I have been so blessed with discovering new friends and their wonderful sites that I thought why not pick a day or two of the week especially with the holidays here and list what others create and sale on their sites.
How nice it would be to shop while your scanning blogs. Beats the crowds at the malls. Right!
So tonight I will post a few pictures from Shardons Exclusives and give you my email address where you can send me what you would like to be posted from your site, the link to your site  and if this catches on then I can do it all through the year instead of just for the holidays.
Homemade gifts are so much more special than the others. Don't you agree.
Also give me an idea of what day of the week I should post everyone sales and what should I call this post. Help me out ladies.
Okay if you want your site posted once a week on here with your goodies for sale then write me at

Remember the aging post about the mind (well maybe you don't remember it) but anyway I am having one of those moments where I can not remember the sites I wanted to put on here tonight besides Sharons. lol Please forgive me but it was a rough day.  I do remember one sweet lady that had a beautiful pink quilt for sale and for the life of me I can not remember what site it was on.  Maybe she will email me and I can post it.

If you have another minute I will tell you about my day!

I was scheduled to be off today but a female inmate needed to be transported to one of our State Prisons. These transports are the least favorite of my transports but necessary.
This particular young lady had been expecting this day for a while now so she seemed pretty calm when we left the sally port. I would guess that lasted all of ten minutes and she started screaming and kicking the cage in between our seats. I pulled over before I got out of town and tried to talk to her about her silly behavior and how she was only making things worse because we had a long way to go.
I really wanted to tell her that I had promised you guys that Ms. Pearl was on a long extended vacation and please don't make her return from it early. hahaha
Back on the highway she starts talking to me and I figure okay I can handle the talking better than the kicking the cage. She starts telling me all kinds of stuff and what a hard life she has lived. Then this woman starts talking to me about the men she has had and how she will miss that locked up. I am thinking GEEZZ Marie WHY ME!  She then wants to know about my sex life. Can you imagine that. I laughed and told her I was single and alone so nothing to tell. You would of thought I had told her something really funny because she started laughing so hard she said she was going to pee in her pants. I told her to hold it until we could find a place to stop. Lord only me.
I barely had that out of my mouth and she starts her kicking again. I am thinking okay please Lord let my ex-husband walk across the highway right this minute so I can run over him. hahahaha
Now I have a headache from you know where and I start treating her like a kid hoping she would shut the screaming up and the kicking. I ask her what would it take (yes I offered a bribe) to settle her down. Talk about getting someone's attention. I had hers then. She said, "I can not scream or kick while I am eating!"
It took me about ten seconds to pull into a fast food place and when Jack ask me what would I like I said, " GIVE ME ONE OF EVERYTHING AND PLEASE HURRY!"
I know what your thinking but sometimes YOU DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO!
The rest of the trip was not to bad and she got full and I got rid of my headache. Best of all Ms Pearl stayed on her much needed vacation.

Haha, yes that should work to shut her up, just stuff her mouth!!!! Too funny!
That's a great idea, I love to shop on line, what better way is there to support other blogger artist friends, and find fabulous things!

Your so right Margaret it worked. hahahaha
As long as she was eating I had no trouble.
Glad you like the idea. You are my first one to comment. Hope everyone else likes it too
Thanks for visiting tonight

jojo said...

I love this idea, it would be so much fun to find unique gifts and help out fellow bloggers at the same time. You are brilliant!
Glad you reigned in Ms Pearl, I would not be happy if I had to come back from vacation early! No wonder you had a headache, oh my, I would have lost my mind with all that kicking and screaming. Clever way to shut her up...hope you feel better and get some good rest. Take care sweet friend...jj

Marie said...

Well, Grandma Yellow Hair, just in case you're interested, food works for me too. Such a shame we don't live in the same state! LOL

Thanks for stopping by my site and expect I'll be back to yours. Love what you have to say.

I sure don't envy you your job. You must have the patience of a saint!!
Have a Great Day!!

Arkansas Patti said...

I love your job and just glad it is you and not me doing it. I used to date a police officer and he was one of the few guys that when I asked "And how was your day", I couldn't wait to hear.

Coastal Sisters said...

You have a most interesting job! The inmate sounded like a rather naughty and petulant child! You have such patience!
I would have ripped out the duct tape! *giggle*


Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

I'm thinking you could write a book with all the incidents you've had to deal with. Great idea to post what others are selling. There is so much out there that I would certainly buy for the holidays. I do believe handmade and homemade is so much better than all the new stuff that is available. Best wishes to you, :) Tammy

Maggie, dear Maggie, you are such a sweet lady. First, I want to Thank you for the lovely post!! I appreciate it very very much!
Second, I thought of you all day long and even said a couple of prayers. Now I know why! Goodness, there are some crazy people but this lady takes the cake. Tell Ms. Pearl I am very very proud of her. Bribery never
The part about the ex-hub was so very very funny. I hope you have a better day tomorrow when you have to work for
When did you say the choc. covered peanut clusters are going to be done??? My mouth is watering.....yummmmm

SharDon Exclusives said...

I love the idea about shopping via handmade. How about having a contest to name the new blog and we could all advertise about the new blog, etc. Then you could send me some of that candy for being so

Sharon said...

That was so interesting but I am sure glad I did not have to do it. I don't have the patience that you do.
Food is a good bride, works well on grandkids also.
Duct tape would have been my first thought also.
Have a blessed weekend.
So funny about the ex. LOL

I rather enjoy pearl coming to visit, but she does get you in trouble..wink~ Yeah stuffing her pie hole was a good idea but can't you use duct tape? thanks for stopping by my blog during my convalescents and for the encouraging new blogging split personality buddy..LMAO!!!
