3 Ta(i)l(e)s Tuesday


#1. Cat tail

#2. Mom Tale
They say necessity is the Mother of Invention.  OMCs my Mother is now an inventor. She KNEW she needed a different set up in our office so that she would not have to sit all the time.
Of course she could have purchased a special standing desk but the desk she has was her Daddy's and did not want to replace it
TOGM had a brain wave yesterday morning. She took a few
measurements and then off to her favorite store Bed, Bath and Beyond to look for a bed tray with legs.
Ta Da introducing our new portable desk extension.
 Not only is it the purrfect size and has room for the keyboard and mouse, it is made of wood the same color as the wood on the desk. From the top of the desk to the top of the computer the measurement is 25 1/4".  She and Dad share this space so all she has to do when she is finished is take the tray away.  BUT DAD was quite impressed with the set up and he might even use it some too!!
The bed tray was $29.99 and I had had $10.00 coupon
Everytime I go to Bed, Bath and Beyond I found exactly what I need for my bed or bath and now
I have found the 'beyond'!!




#3. Tuesday Teaser Cheer Tale
Blogville's favorite Tuesday Teaser cheerleader, SuzieQ, (whom I admire immensely) wrote me a cheer.
Teddy mentioned he might need to lose a few of his 16+ pounds.  I asked him  if I could have them 'cause I'd really like to get to 8 lbs again.  I'm close but not there yet. It amazes me how quickly I lost some poundage and how hard it is to put it back on.

Madi, Madi, Madi
Don't try to be a "fatty"
Slim and trim and pretty
That's us - aren't we just so witty?
We don't want to hurt our hearts
We must learn to use our "smarts"
It's smart to be slim and dreamy
That way we get more ice creamy!!!

  1. Your human figured out a really good desk set up! My human wishes she had a standing desk - she has decided she spends too much time sitting.

    I bought a standing desk that sits on top of a desk so I could keep my great-grandfather's desk.

  11. Yay! A great idea and it looks cool, too. Hope it helps with the sciatica! It really looks like it was made for that desk! Suzie did a great job on the poem for you. Lucky you getting a special poem from Suzie!

  12. We don't have a standing desk but I could sure lay on one pretty Madi!

  13. That's very nice! It does match perfectly. My assistant is all into things matching, too. She is not allowed to go into Bed Bath & Beyond because she always finds things she needs - only she didn't realize she needed them until she saw them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

  14. Madi, tell us that you aren't really looking for a new assistant!?!

  15. that was a really good idea, mom wishes they had a store like that around here, mostly we have feed stores and a barrel would not work for us. stella rose

  17. Good idea! It looks really nice too.
    (But ghostwriter can't think of anything worse than having to stand in front of her computer. She has to stand for 8 hours at work and trudge up and down the hallways and push around the heavy med cart and lift big heavy people! On her day off she likes to SIT!)

  18. Great thinking, Mom to Madi!!! Just be sure you are not bending at all. Mom says her doctor says stand straight or bend the knees if you have to:) We hope the new desk setup is helping a lot.

  27. Ooooooooo! Ma loves the BB&B too! She always finds somethings there, and they always have the coupons that make it totally worth it! AND, they have lowered the free shipping min. online if you don't have one close to you. Ma just went there last week and bought all kinds of stuffs on clearance she didn't need! BOL! Anyhu, Ma has the SAME stand! Though, hers has a white tray. They are very sturdy and they last a long time too!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥
