Wednesday, May 28

This week is brought to you by the letter 1. Jail - I am happy to say I have never been arrested or spent any time in jail.

2. Jalapeno peppers - I love these little peppers. I was first introduced to them while living in Texas when I found they tasted great on nachos.

3. Jamaica shorts - This is only type of shorts I dare to wear now. Back in my younger days I wore short shorts and hot pants.

4. Jamboree - Several years ago I went to the Jamboree In the Hills concert in Saint Clairsville, OH, just outside Wheeling, WV. I will dig out my pictures and write about that weekend. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a country concert weekend held in an open field. If you like country music, this is a great concert.

5. Jackpot - I have hit a few jackpots.

6. Japanese maple - I have a Japanese maple planted in from of my dining room window. It has been a very slow growing tree.

7. Jaws - A sign of a heart attach in women is having their jaws hurt. This was my symptom.

8. Jazz - When my daughter was taking dance lessons I decided to take lessons as well. I took three years of jazz and was in the dance recital too.

9. Jell-O - There’s always room for jell-o. I’ve been making the orange sugar free and adding manadrine oranges. Yummy!

10. Jewelry - I love jewelry, but I don’t wear a lot. I guess you could say my signature piece is my cross that I wear everyday.

11. Jigsaw puzzles - I use to love to do jigsaw puzzles. We would buy the big 500 piece puzzles and spread them out on the dining room table and spend the week putting them together. Those are some good memories. I recently found a site where I am doing jigsaw puzzles on-line. It’s called
Jig zone . It doesn’t like Foxfire, so if you want to try it out use your Internet Explorer.

12. Jacks - When I was a little girl I would play jacks on our front porch. I could spend hours going from onesies to tensies

13. Junk food- I’m a junk food junkie! There…I’ve said it. Whether its chips, cookies, chocolate, I say bring them on.

Hi Linda, I am with you with the junk food..I am a cookie monster...I need to get my self back in control with snacking...

As a kid, I would play Jack stones for hours..with friends or alone..

I have been having jaw pain for two weeks off and on..I had x-rays and nothing was found..I think it is a nerve, but not sure..I hope it has not been my heart acting up this long of a time..It might be a TMJ hurts in front of my ear at times..

Well, I am off to bed .. I have a busy day tomorrow . Hugs, Baba

This is a great list, Linda! I didn't know that the jaw pain was an indicator of possible heart trouble.

I loved playing Jacks as a kid. We'd play for HOURS.

Hi Linda,

I enjoyed the ABC's of You beginning with letter "J". I just recently bought a fake Japanese Maple tree to go in our sunroom. It is almost 8' tall and so pretty. I love it. I remember playing jacks. My that was a long time ago. Great list.
