Boxing Day & Solitaire Blitz Boosts

Hey there! Happy Boxing Day!  We had a nice Christmas.  I gave Rod a Samsung Galaxy Tablet – a 7inch job. He’s still finding his way around with it but so far seems happy with it.  He gave me a gorgeous jewelry box that looks like it belongs in a D&D setting. I’ve never had a full sized jewelry box before and honestly, this is the first one I’ve ever seen that really suits the person that is me.  Santa also snuck a speaker tower into the house and put it by the tree after we went to bed.  This uses bluetooth so I can just start music on my phone and away it goes. The speaker is so much better than what I had in mind to go with my phone for music.  It has a built in radio, can charge my phone, and as it’s bluetooth I can connect the computer, iPad, Rod’s computer, or his tablet to it so it’s very versatile.  It was a big surprise, but a really nice one!

But I’m not really here to talk about Christmas.  As many of you who know me on Facebook are aware, I quite enjoy a few different Bingo games and Solitaire Blitz. Although to be honest, I haven’t been too happy with Solitaire Blitz since they changed the format over about a month ago. I still play it though as nothing better that’s similar has come along.

The other day I noticed something I had never seen before and thought I’d mention it in case others might be interested too.

When you go to select your boosters, have you ever noticed the little triangles on the bottom of the screen?  I thought they were decorations, but then one was lit up so I clicked on it and discovered I had a bunch of free Jokers to use that I didn’t know existed.  Here’s what the triangles and  the second page (if there is one) looks like:

If you’re a Solitaire Blitz, Bingo or Bejeweled player on Facebook, feel free to add me – the more the merrier.  Leave a note though so I know who you are and what you play. Otherwise I might not realise why you’ve requested the add.

I know I don’t normally write about Facebook games, but it crossed my mind and I thought I’d share.  Cheers until next time!

22Jan22 I mailed my sister an older iPhone so she can get better hearing aids that work best with the iOS platform. That and she was given an Apple watch for Christmas and needs at least this model phone to make good use of it.  And that was why I had this phone. I bought it to use temporarily with my watch while I waited for a newer phone.  When it came time to sell this phone, I just had a hesitancy I couldn't explain - but I really thought it'd be best suited to go to someone I know and care about rather than a stranger.  And that's exactly what's transpired.  With luck, she'll get it this week!  #sisterlove #iphonegift #betterhearingsoon #sharingthetech #2022pad #latergram
18Jan22 Look at how clean and soft Noble's fur looks.  He scrubs up so nicely.  I've seen this cat come in looking like he'd had a wild night on the town and then later he looks so well groomed you'd think I'd taken him to be brushed and fluffed!  #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram  #2022pad #latergram
07Feb22  A New Years postcard from my youngest - "I mailed that a month ago!" Hey, I'm just happy it arrived!  This is their artwork and they are most happiest hiking in the mountains.  I love the colours on this!  #2022pad #NewYear22 #latergram
11Sep22  I take a photo of these whenever I do a test because with catarachts I don't trust my eyes.  It's easier to see for sure if there's a bottom line from the camera.  Then I let them hang around so I know the date I last checked.  Anyone else do that? This is called a RAT test in Australia.  #2022pad #covidnegative #justchecking #covidrattest #rat
18Jan22  Oh ick.  I am NOT showing you what the porch light looked like.  Cleaning the porch and porch light were not my job and wasn't something I even thought about over the last 3yrs.  Until it started looking like this.  The blackness is from the dust and dirt across the road (where there's a large horse paddock). When the wind comes from that direction, even with the windows closed I get a film of dust and dirt over everything.  And obviously cobwebs are not immune from it.  So I took a couple cleaning brushes with extensions on them and tackled this area as well as the porch light.  Rod used to bring the globe around the light into the house and wash it. I can't do that. I'm not safe on ladders.  So I'll just get it to be less scary looking and call it good.  Before I tackled this job, the area was sprayed with my favourite spider killer.  Were spiders hurt? Geez, I hope so. And I hope they stay away for a long time.  #dirt #cobwebs #porchcleaning #eww #spiders #latergram
18Jan22  My shutters in the 'Ready Room' (the front bedroom) had quit working with a loud "thunk" sound on the weekend so I made a couple calls and was put onto this company. Ray and his workmate came and were able to work out that the last time the shutter had been repaired (I have no memory of it ever needing it while I've been here), they used curved bars instead of straight ones and that eventually caused the whole thing not to work.  They had some straight ones they could replace it with that weren't a stock item, and not quite a match, but the repair worked beautifully and then they checked the shutters for the gym window and found the timing was off by a few ticks so quickly fixed that as well.  The fee they charged me was minimal.  So I have no problems sharing their business card. I felt they were absolutely looking out for me rather than lining their pockets.  Good guys!  #fair #tradies #shutterrepairs #latergram
