Wacky Wednesday-Wierd smells-and a squirrel named Molly

I know I am NOT your normal nana, but hey, I wasn’t a normal mother either. So why should I be a normal nana? Strange things have always caught my attention, but today I saw something really strange. Lucky for me I had my camera in my purse because this is another one of those “you won’t believe it if you don’t see it.”

molly the squirrelLook at this picture closely. The man has a squirrel on his shoulder! I don’t know these folks but I know squirrels and the little critters are wild. They do NOT normally sit on people’s shoulders. There was no one behind me so I stopped my van, rolled my window down and asked them if I could make their picture. “Sure,” he said. So I did. He told me the squirrel’s name was Molly. Before I thought about it I asked, “And how do you know she’s a girl?” Now look at the lady in the picture. She’s covering her face and laughing. I decided I really didn’t need to know about squirrel anatomy, so I said, “Never mind” and drove off.

Then I start smelling something in my van. It wasn’t a good smell. In fact, it was a bad, stinky smell. Now remember, this nana is on the road a lot so I often eat in my car. I looked around to see what the offensive smell could be. First I checked out a McDonald’s bag. Nothing in there but paper. But then I turned around and looked behind me. There were two mystery boxes in the floorboard.

Box Number One

roast beef

This was roast beef and mashed potatoes. I gave it a sniff. Not bad, not edible, but not bad.

Box Number Two


I gave it a sniff. Ding Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner!

This was meatloaf, mashed potatos and some sort of beans. Man was it rank. I quickly wheeled into the car wash and started throwing trash in the can. I strongly advise all nanas to clean out their vehicles at least once a week. Especially in the summer time.

Years ago one of my sons left fishing bait (raw chicken livers) under the van seat. Talk about a smell! It was ten times worse than the meatloaf and much harder to get rid off. If I remember correctly when we traded that van in we had to sell it for less than it was worth because on hot days it still had a mysterious odor.

And that is my Wacky Wednesday. Ho?w was your day
