Snakes and Foamy Stuff

Hello everyone!  I've been busy at the store and with patio roof construction all week.  So far, the hammer and nail people have broken FOUR of my vases.  I was very nice and told them not to worry about them.  I should have moved them to a safe place, so it is really my fault I suppose. 

WHAT is with this Summer and snakes!!!??? 

My daughter has found several in her house.  I have had one in my attic, and four in the back yard.  The snakes don't seem to care for the hammer and nail people, and they keep crawling out from underneath my patio.  At least three of them won't be crawling anymore, but who knows how many relatives they left under there.

I was thinking about the snakes a while ago, and I remember that foam stuff that Jerry tried to put in the boobs of my dress form.  Remember that?  Here's a reminder:

He sprayed the stuff inside one of my bras.  When it dried, he took the "boobs" out and put them on a chair.  The stuff kept squirting out for a long time.  It was hilarious!

If you would like to read the saga of my homemade dress form, you can find it here:

I was thinking we could use this stuff and spray it in the holes under the cement where the snakes are coming out.  That would seal the holes up, and they couldn't get out anymore.  I'm going to ask Jerry about it when he gets home. 

He will probably tell me I'm insane.  Oh, well.  It won't be the first time I've been told that, and I doubt it will be the last! 

It's a long weekend so I doubt anyone will be sitting at their computer looking at my blog.  Jerry and I are doing what we always do:  nothing.  Nobody is coming, and we aren't going.  We shall sit on our covered patio and talk about stuff.  Hence, I shall cut this short and go iron some blouses.  I am in the middle of a new blouse, so I'll show it to you next week.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hugs, Joy


  1. Hi Joy, I would love to see updated pictures of your new patio:)
    Enjoyed reading about your adventure making a dress form. I'm trying to making one using paper tape and filling it with paper. I seen it on threads I think or youtube, but having a hard time finding paper tape.
    I think I've become addicted to your blog, you just make watching and learn so comfortable, thank you again.
    What you taught me today, is when putting in a sleeve those notches are to show us front from back. I too could never get those darn things to match up.
    I also love watch Pastor Hagee.
    Have a great & blessed weekend,

  2. I enjoy reading your blog, Joy. And your erupting bra mold volcano had me laughing in bed just now :)

  3. JoyJoy, I'm thinking about you and missing you. Hugs, Phylly
