Oh’ Roomba

Oh’ Roomba, how you make my heart go thump.  Last week, I ignored her cries for recognition in Friday Funnies, but as the stern task master, I made her do her dirty-little chores in the usual fashion without writing Roomba, dear, in a post.  The newest development in our relationship is that I no longer hide my vacuum fascination…

And Now…

And now…I’d like to present to you…Scooba! Roomba recently met her cousin, Scooba.  My granddaughter insists one is a boy, and the other bot is a girl, so Scooba is a he according to my adorably, insistent princess. What is Scooba?  Well, if you do not know, it is a robotic machine that mops your…

What’s That

What’s that?  You like my stories of Roomba?  You, my faithful followers and friends?  Well, okay then.  Who am I to disappoint?  I mean, come on, I have said it before I am not afraid of providing a small, light-hearted moment in a day that can run long.  Two scores and five years ago… The strange rattling started…

It Has

It has sadly come to my attention that ‘Me & My Roomba’ may be well played out.  Leave it to visiting children home for the Holidays to remind their parents, this parent, of how very ordinarily pathetic they may be.  Now, I have great kids, but really?  Throw an ol’ girl a bone here. You can’t…

Friday, Beautiful

Friday, beautiful, Friday.  It is time to dust off those nasty cobwebs.  It is time to make sure the battery is charged and rollers clean.  Roomba has been on vacation.  A vacation from me.  Her holiday was at first filled with silence.  The golden tune of nobody home.  Her time off quickly changed to a house…

Every Friday

Every Friday is my day for Roomba funnies.  It is the day I discuss my imperfect relationship with my vacuum cleaner, but also the level of respect I have for this re-chargeable creature.  I sum her up as a child since my flesh & blood children have all flown the coop leaving me with my mutterings to…

The Continuation …

The continuation … Friday is the day I discuss my relationship with my robotic vacuum cleaner, as in most cases we go through serious ups and downs.  Roomba came into my life with a specific purpose, to clean.  Floors to be exact, not to try and climb on top of bar stools or low lying objects that may…

I Really

I really didn’t believe it could happen.  In fact, I joked about the fact that she would make me look for her.  The game of hide and seek being so entertaining.  That her loud antics would go on for far too long, but before I realized it her hum had gone silent, and I had…

The Quiet

The quiet hum of silence.  I live in a rural area where residents have to own five or more acres of land to have a residence.  So, the quiet is expected.  Inside your home is a completely different ballgame.  With my children now in their own homes or off to college, the days are filled…

I Am

I am a vacuum girl.  It is true, I am that simple.  There is a Christmas morning type of excitement these small beasts continually bring me.  I need not a diamond, just an amazing vacuum.  It is a similar expense I suppose, unnecessary in many ways, yet totally rewarding when you look down and see your newest bauble…
