    Unhappy Grumpy

    How does everyone feel about people you haven't seen in a long time just dropping in for a visit? I must be getting old and grumpy but I would like a call first.

    I absolutely want a call first. I might need to prepare a snack or meal. How do they know we are okay or have other company. How do they know if we have other plans? That is to me rude to say the least. Barny

    while I generally like to have visitors, announced or not, nowadays there is no reason for them not to call first.

    Nope, doesn't bother me at all. Mind you, they run the risk of catching me in my sloppy's and looking like a train wreck, but hey, I am always happy to see a friendly face at my door. I love surprises and have always told my friends they are welcome at any time and drop on by!!! I think it is an especially nice surprise when it is someone I haven't seen in a long while.

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    I want a call and it better not be from the driveway. I'm one of those people that need lots of notice for anything. Can't stand to have anyone in the house if it's not clean and presentable. So come on over but call a day ahead!

    I generally like people and am glad to share time with them. I don't usually judge folks by their housekeeping and I hope they feel the same. Maybe it's because I still have a kid and am used to having other folks in the house.

    don't call ahead, then I would have to comb my hair, change clothes, pick up the clutter in the house, load the dishwasher, scrub the bathrooms, sweep all the floors and would be to tired to enjoy your company.

    don't forget the great "housekeeping hint" posted here a while back - Keep 2 or 3 "Get Well' cards prominently displayed at all times, and your guests will forgive your sloppy house cleaning!
