Hello, my name is Mabel Velveeta. I am related to Speedcat, and he came to me with an idea involving my own opinions. I will be an "Advisor" here .... answering with the best of my ability the quandaries posed from some of the folks Speedy knows. You can ask me a question as well, and I will get back to you via this blog.
From "Eddie": My wife says that I am lazy, and will never stop nagging me. What can I do?
... Well Eddie, she probably says these things because they are true. Get up off your duff and stop being such a stick in the mud. Try some vitamin water to get the balls rolling.
From Cousin "Joy": The men at work keep looking at my bosom, especially when I wear a low cut dress. Should I confront them?
... Joy, men are dogs, and will always pee on a tree. If you want them to stop glaring at your chest, quit hanging it out there like a billboard for land sakes!
From "Jack W": What is the key to living a long happy life?
... Ha! Well if I knew that, I would be one smart cookie, now wouldn't I? Here are my own secrets to help further one's prosperity. !. Don't smoke 2. Find someone you love to be with 3. Walk every day 4. Take a shot of whiskey before bed, and sleep on your side 5. Knitting
From "Betty": How can I become a better lover?
... Oh gosh! Try reading some Harlequin Romance Novels. They will get your motor started. Sometimes I will even venture to leave the hall light on.
From "Chuck": I am in the market for a new TV. Any suggestions?
For heavens sake - what do I know about that? I have a Curtis Mathis Console, and it has worked fine for so many years. I polish it twice a week so the plants do not leave marks on the top. My cat "Blanket" loves to sleep on it when I watch my game shows in the morning.
Like to hear your questions answered here by my Aunt Mabel? Fire away in a comment! You will get a link and a response right here on this post. Thanks Mabel ... and GREAT JOB!!!!!
Kim said... gee whiz Mabel...you sound like a very wise cookie. I love your TV and cabinet ...very vogue :) My question is: a) how do I get rid of my spam??? ~ and b) how can I tell the difference between spam comments and real blogger comments??? thanks in anticipation :)
Well, my dear, Spam can go in the garbage. Just make sure the can makes it to the recycling bin. As far as telling a real blogger from spam is easy! Just take a whiff and see if it stinks. Remember to be polite, and offer some Gold Bond Powder.
That Blue Yak said ... That in-home moving picture radio is sweeter than homemade lemonade
Is that a question? Maybe that is why my cat "Blanket" is always licking the screen.
Creative Treasures said ... I too love the Curtis Mathes.I have a question.. What is the best way to stay cool on a HOT summer day??
Michelle, do you watch Password too? I love that show .... as far as staying cool, remember to keep a tall glass of lemonade by your side. I also recommend keeping a small spray bottle with ice / water ~ and a fan to wave across your face. Wear a white top and a white hat to match, preferably made of Lycra.
Random Content and More said ... Aunt Mabel, I run a couple of online businesses, my question is should I consider opening a real life business, you know a store, I have a lot of great ideas for one, do you think it would be too risky or should I stay safe and just continue to grow online? Thank you.
Sweetheart, you go right on ahead and start a real business. If I had never opened my beauty shop, that husband of mine would have driven me to madness. It is good for a woman to get out on her own. As far as being risky? Take your chances while you are young, and never look back. When you get to be in your 90's like me, you will understand.
Beany said... Do you think there is ever an appropriate time to lie?
Ohh heavens yes; sometimes a little lie can spare hurt feelings. I would much rather do something wrong with my own fib, than see anothers sadness when I told them how they REALLY looked. Why last Tuesday at the hairdresser Elsie asked me about her wash and set. It was god awful ... but that is not quite my answer. You can also lie to a crook, and tell him you have no quarters in your coin purse.
