A Random Five Facts & Feline Friday post

My Five things for happenings update first  -- The cat is at the end here

One:  I found this box of Magic Jim at the Kroger (grocery) store yesterday in the toy section.  Since it wasn't a food then I didn't buy it. 
Really though, I also didn't buy it because it is not 'Jim', but rather 'Jinn'. 
Two:  Mrs. Jim had bunion surgery on Jan 2, one day after her birthday.  It has been over three weeks now.  This cast went on at the end of the first week and it is scheduled to come off next week. 
Her first calf rubbed her sutures the wrong way and so the PA put on a new one with more padding for her.  The first one was definitely an eye catcher being LSU purple and yellow.  The second is all purple except for the white on each end. 
On the right wearing the purple cast, Mrs. Jim  is Face Timing with our youngest grand-daughter, KP.  They use Face Time more than Skype now, I don't know why.

Three:  Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class has been so nice with furnishing us food.  It saves her from having to eat my food too.  This is a chicken casserole which made us four meals.  Above is a light meal, half the chicken casserole and half a fruit salad with sliced avocado.

Four:  This is my friend's newest acquisition.  It is a 1929 restored Model A Ford 4door sedan.  He also has a 1937 restored Ford pickup and two Model T Fords.  Well, he did until today when he sold his 1917? Speedster (picture of a 1916 Speedster that looked like his).  My pictured of it here is from last Sunday when he drove it to church.

Five:  What do these two pictures have in common?  Loss of property.  The cell phone I put into a cup of coffee the other day.  I was in the car and forgot that the cup holder was not empty.

I had to wear the shoes because I had lost my slippers.  I found them today in the hall closet.  I had looked there several times but it turned out they were under a big jar of cheese balls.

And I bought a new AT&T Samsung flip phone for $14.99 at Radio Shack.  I just stuck my SIM card into the slot and it worked fine.  No camera though.  But the only pictures I ever took with the old one were an accident.  I went into Radio Shack the other day and they had told me that this was a  GO Phone and would not work as a regular one.  The fellow at the AT&T store told me they did work and he used to sell them at his place.

My Feline Friday Cat
This cat meets me most every month when I come to pay my storage shed rent.  It is very friendly and always gets up when I come so that she can be petted.  I don't know it's name or breed.

Wow! a Miracle Go Phone . . . I like that.

The Kitty seems to know YOUR Name, so All Is Well!

I'm glad to see you today.
Nice to see you. Hope Mrs. Jim heals quickly and is back on two good feet quickly. I've heard bunion surgery is no fun. wonderful that you have friends helping you out with meals. sorry about your phone and glad your found your shoes. your friend's *new* car is a beauty. Happy Friday!
that cat resembles our Lucy! Hope your sweetie does better now!
I'll be glad when Mrs. Jim cast comes off. Not as glad as she will be, but I'll be glad.

I love the kitty. Too cute.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺
I hope Mrs. Jim heals quickly. That food sure looks yummy. I'm sorry Jim, but I laughed about your old phone, been there, done that!
Fast healing to Mrs. Jim! Love the colorful cast. :)
that '29 Ford looks fandamntastic!
Bunion surgery does not sound like fun...the phone thing sounds like something I might do.
I'd dearly love to find an old Model T and refurbish it from top to bottom!! I'm so jealous of your friend. Glad that Mrs. Jim will have the cast off soon...and hopefully the techie learned a bit about casts of different kinds so as not to have that happen with other patients.

The food looks delicious!!!
Love these Random finds! The "new" car of your friend is awesome. I love anything vintage. Hope Mrs. Jim heals fast.
Aww. It's nice that you have a kitty visiting you when you go pay rent. Makes the job a bit more cheerful, eh? Visiting on Feline Friday.
I am glad Mrs. Jim is okay!! And that is so nice that they are bringing you food - I think that is just so sweet and it looks so good. sandie
Bunions are a bugger of thing to suffer. I remember the pain that my dad went through until after his surgery, too! That's also a cool car and cat!
Please take care, Mrs Jim.
