Eagles, Sons and a CVS Fall Fail


Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post and link back to our host Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.

It’s not too late to join in on the fun and we would love to have you!


I walked into CVS yesterday and they were setting up the Halloween aisle. Right there on the end of that aisle was candy corn! Besides being sentimental for me the darn things are so addicting! It was the only thing that helped me with nine-months of morning sickness with my oldest daughter (a really long time ago) and also got me through wicked cigarette withdrawals. So of course I grabbed a bag. Driving home I thought to myself, fall isn’t going to be so bad after all.

Candy Corn

Did you know that 24 pieces of candy corn is considered a serving? That serving is 160 calories, 85 mg of sodium (Holy Salt) and 32 grams of sugar (Yikes!) None of that mattered as I ripped open the bag and poured it into a bowl and put it on my desk with every intention of eating it all. I grabbed a handful and nearly re-broke the broken jaw I just had surgery on a few weeks ago. It was hard and nasty. I am SO mad!! Big fail CVS. Now I want summer back!


One of my bosses from my out of the house job also a very dear friend, Susan passed away last weekend. She was 51. We said goodbye to her on Wednesday. This is the 4th close friend or relative I have lost to cancer since January. What is going on? #ihatecancer

My husband’s boss planned last weekend’s company picnic months ago. He had no idea the date he chose would be the first game and the home opener for the EAGLES. Everybody sucked it up and showed up at the pavilion and there was a huge T.V. set up. The first half ended with the EAGLES losing 17-0. It was a beautiful day and the food was so good the game had to turn around and it did. They ended up winning 34-17! Suddenly the company picnic turned into a real party!

Just when we thought we rid our city and our football team of all bad karma (you know that Vick guy) another one of our favorite players brings national shame attention to our city and our team.

Our star running back LeSean McCoy, nicknamed Shady is a fan favorite. Last week he and a few friends went to a popular Philly restaurant PHT. The server admittedly a bit nervous because he was a HUGE fan forgot the appetizer. McCoy and his party left a twenty-cent tip. The owner of the restaurant posted the receipt on Facebook and we have a scandal. Charlie Sheen jumped on Twitter and offered the server $1000 to which McCoy said, I’m glad you are finally doing something good with your life. Somebody today said, at least he didn’t knock his girlfriend out in an elevator. No he didn’t but I remember what he did doand believe me it wasn’t nice. You see this is not the first time this fan fave’s shady character has been questioned. Meet the real LeSean McCoy

“A 20-cent tip is kind of a statement. You can’t disrespect somebody and expect them to tip you. I don’t care who the person is. That’s why I left my card so they could see my name.” LeSean McCoy

We have been waiting SO long for the new and final season of Sons of Anarchy. The first episode was two and a half hours long and so much happened I was getting dizzy. It was also very gory. I had to turn away at one point. I am hooked though and really want to see where the writer takes this and it all ends. I hope there is some redemption there.
