Happy Monday Before Christmas!

7 days until Christmas Day.
6 days until Christmas Eve.
5 days until Christmas Weekend.
4 days until Christmas Weekend Eve.
Any way u look at it, it's a Holiday Month!
May God Bless this Holiday Month, our
Holiday Families, Loved Ones, Businesses,
and the upcoming New Year..!
I don't think that's too much to ask..?

Remembering our loved ones and good times in Auld Lang Syne

Are we there yet?

Is it Christmas yet?
Have u mailed out all your cards? Presents?
For a Holiday, it sure is a busy time of year!

It's Christmas Month!

I actually have a route!
It's no longer alphabetical,
but is closest to furthest.
Not yet a dream route exactly,
but still fun!
P.S., I adopted my cat from
the Humane Society of Dallas.
Her name is Pat, and she's my
Halloween cat! She's a tortoiseshell.
She's going to be 11 in March, and
was born at the shelter.
They say she wouldn't have ever been
adopted. Don't know why, such a blessing!
Sometimes it's not a match, so we were lucky,
altho' I must say that I observed her for a year
before I brought her home, and I was right,
she's perfect.
I think the cats learn manners at the shelter,
because she is so well-behaved.
Am adding new photos to the site, maybe even
a new tab or two...

Happy Post-Thanksgiving!

It's Holiday Season.
Christmas is next! 🎄
I say that Thanksgiving should be every day!
Thankful and full for everything I have,
including the freedom to run my own business,
even if it did take 2 years to complete.

Finally! My last and final placement.
My route is Complete!
Not including any returns that go right back out.
I now fine-tune and perfect.

Please remember my Contact form is available
Happy Holidays!

Why Can't Mondays Be Fun..?

I love my job,
and I look forward to Mondays,
but only after a really restful weekend.
So was totally geared up today for a new
location. But the current vendor virtually
growled at me.
He's the only vendor in this here store, mister!

One Up, One Down

Placed a new double-headed bubblegum machine today.
It's a really nice one if I do say so.
Forest green body with gold metal trim on a wooden stand.
Pics are up on the Machines tab.

I'm pretty sure a little family was pocketing jewelry from the
open jewelry carousel at a different location.
They were in layers and layers of sweaters on a warm day, right on top of the tiny earrings.
When I had to move a gum machine near them to service it, they
moved away from the carousel and the little girl began crying.

There was a security guard at the front, facing the wrong way!
Surely there are cameras?
I watched them for a minute out of curiosity, but I had to tend to my business.
 I sure dislike rip-offs in any form.
If I was a security guard, I would have asked them if they
would like a basket for all those earrings.

Removed a Vendstar machine from a reeeeeeeally slow location.
Single owner that took off for breakfast, lunch, weddings, etc...
Really cute place, too, but he was hardly ever there.
Was busy when open, but customers couldn't be there when it
was closed! So out it goes to be re-placed.

The Holidays Are Upon Us!

Halloween was a blast!
I am Thankful for Thanksgiving.
Christmas is always an absolute delight!
And 2018 begins a new round of holidays!
Let's pray for the past, and pray for the future, too.
All the bubblegum best!

Happy Halloween Eve!

Monday, October 23, 2017

Monday, Monday...

Monday's Child is Fair of Face.
'Monday, Monday' is a 1966 song by the Mamas and the Papas.
Monday Night Football returned after a 2005 hiatus.
Cyber Monday=November 27, 2017.
Candy is natures way of making up for Mondays.

Monday, October 16, 2017

Happy October Monday!

Finally! A totally uneventful Monday..!
Sort of waiting for the other shoe to drop,
but today is a peaceful and productive
And yet...
It is Halloween month, a dichotomy.
A dichotomy /daɪˈkɒtəmi/ is a partition of a whole (or a set) into two parts (subsets). In other words, this couple of parts must be

I will always enjoy all Holidays. 
Especially ones that include bubblegum..!

Happy Monday Columbus!

Placed next-to-last machine today in an
awesome location. Hope it sticks.
Next in line is the final placement for this route.
It's a beautiful combo if I do say so.
It's a double; 2 machines on 1 wooden stand, very fancy!
It's generic, maybe an Oak. Pic will post under the Pics tab.
Vintage, but in fantastic condition. Very solid.
These are productive and fun to service.

One Bright Light Dispels Darkness

My cat had to go to vet hospital today.
My brand new watch had to go to its watch hospital.
One bubblegum machine won't stay placed.
Over 500 people had to go to 5 different hospitals
in Las Vegas today.
Horrible, horrible Monday.
No two ways about it.
I can't believe my car worked today
and didn't have to go to the car hospital.
It was Hospital Monday today.

One bright light dispels the darkness.
How many lights would it take to
dispel all the darkness?
There's not enuf lights, but I'm adding my
teeny-tiny light to the mix...

I guess the animal rights groups are saying that they 
aren't against pet stores at all. They say they are wanting 
pet stores to sell rescues, not from breeders. Interesting..! 
Thought I had a machine placed today, but have to wait. 
Progress is sooooo slooooo... 

Monday, September 18, 2017

I miss my pet store!

It was mostly my fault.
I brought in a totally different machine than requested. No one said anything, including me.
Please feel free to communicate. I include myself in this!
Even tho I had to stay on the job and focused,  and couldn't shop around like I wanted to every single time, I looked forward to my pet store location, and wish them the very best..!
In the meantime, we are still in hurricane season, and may God bless the rescue teams that work so hard to find and save beloved pets, strays and animals.
P.S., There is not necessarily a dichotomy between the pet industry and the rescue industry.
Folks are only now learning that the previously-maligned SeaWorld conducted and conducting extensive rescue, rehab and release...

Monday, September 11, 2017

Monday, Monday, Monday...

I removed 1 machine, and placed 2 new machines.
2 steps forward, 1 back...
And I finally got to every single store today.
Wrapped up until next month.
Today is another day of remembrance and
What a rough last few months.
I saw the documentary, The Falling Man, a
few days ago, and relived that terrible event
again. So sad...
Goodness, hurricanes, floods, terrorists, wars...
Please work hard and be good to one another.
It's totally work sometimes! and rewarding.

Labor of Love

Very trying Labor Day this year for many.
The gas pumps have been hit, and gas is hard to find.
I'm going to try to get to every single vending business
this week. The ones I miss, I will get to next week when
they are open. It will be slow-going, but I'll get there.
If there's anyone I missed, or anything needed,
feel free to contact me 24/7.
In the meantime, please remember the families of the
hurricanes, especially the extended families of beloved
pets, and don't forget our fantastic farmers of the states
who work hard to save their crops that feed us, their
product, and the animals.

iPhone eClipse

1) Pic of eClipse last Monday thru my iPhone.

2) Pic of regular sun, days later thru my iPhone.

3) Didn't capture this pic, but this is Exactly what it looked like thru eClipse glasses. 

Monday, August 21, 2017

Happy eClipse Day!

So I took a pic of the eclipse on my iPhone,
(I was told u could do this if u looked at the screen,
not at the sun. I did cheat, and looked for half-a-
second at the eclipse with one eye, but looked like a
regular sun).
The pic from my phone looked like a big yellow
🍈 :-d
After that, it looked like a big yellow ball.
I'm going to take another pic later in the week,
because I have a feeling that a pic of the regular sun will
show on a phone pic as a bunch of light.
Will keep u posted here.
After that, I looked thru some eclipse glasses at
about 1:30pm, and it looked like a big yellow
half-moon. Was super awesome!
Happy eClipse Day!

Bubbles Are Fun!

   Listening to M&M. Yikes!
Bubblegumballs is longer to say, but the way to go.
The vending industry tells me that toys are the way to go,
but since I always use/play/eat the product that goes into
my machines, what am I going to do with tiny toys..?
Right now, my favorite bubblegum is the Black Cherry by
Dubble Bubble, but the mixes I place are PainterZ, (colors
the tongue with the wild flavors!), Splat (each gumball has its
own Splat design), and the standard, original, and classic
Dubble Bubble bubblegumball.

Placed Bubblegum Happiness Today!

Placed a new bubblegum machine, and they had their own giant bouncy ball machine,
with their own logo and everything.
First time I've seen that. How fun..!

Monday, July 24, 2017

Midsummer Bubblegum Dreams

Placed a new machine today.
Hoping for 2, but 1 at a time is fine.
Really truly anticipative that it will stick.
Everyone is so nice, it's really all I can ask.
Have an awesome week, and stay cool!

Monday, July 17, 2017

Happy Berry Blast Monday!

Today, I tried a Berry Blast gumball from the variety mix, and it is yummy!
Double Bubble still produces classic bubbles.
Only 30 calories per piece of 1" gumball.
Staves off hunger for a minute.
Helps me think!
How does that work? I don't know, but it does!
Have an awesome work-week, and remember to be
good to those who work hard for u...

Monday, July 10, 2017

eMail Me Here!

  As mentioned, I am moving over to bubblegumballs to my machines.
If anyone has any questions, comments, gripes or compliments,
let me know when u see me, or email me here 24/7.
This site URL is plastered on all my machines.
For obvious security reasons, I cannot add my home phone here,
and my teeny-tiny route isn't big enuf for its own business phone.
I cannot read your minds, if there are any questions at all, say so..!
Thanku and have a flavorful week!

Monday, June 26, 2017

Yes, bubble-gumballs are fun!

Placed a Vendstar in a grocery today.
All big gumballs. Not the mega, or the
giant ones, but not the small ones.
The fun ones!
Stuffs to do, people to please,
places to go!
I used to drink water on the road to curb
my hunger, but I'd have to stop and pee
all the time.
Once I went to the weekend
seminar and stocked up on bubble-gumball
samples, that did it! I love my job. :)

Monday, June 19, 2017

What a Busy, Busy Summer..!

Pulled a machine,
Added a machine,
Going 100% gumball only.
No more melty melty...
Some okay with it, some happy, some sad.
All yummy and goodness.
Stay Calm, Cool, and Collected this summer.
It's a hot one here!
All the best!

Monday, May 1, 2017

Happy Loyalty Day!

OMG-May is upon us!
Whatever shall we do?
Get ready for summer and hot chocolates!
Melty, melty, but oh-so-satisfying!
I missed a few Mondays, but its good

candy goodness!
Happy May Day to you and yours!

Pulling 2 Machines

Pulling 2 Machines :p
Those little munchkins want free candy!
Yes, it is a hassle, but I have hope.
It's chiclets, not Shakespeare.
Does that even correlate?
Anyway, have a good Monday,
and remember to be nice on the
100th day of the year today.

Monday, April 3, 2017

Whew! April Fool's Day is Done!

April Fool's Day is done, but the tax time man is up next.
Before that is Good Friday, then Easter.
Good times, then Responsibility, then Summer!
Summers are fun, but can be hard on children, pets, and candy.
Keep cool in your cars and homes.

Happy Work-Week!

It's Monday, the beginning of the work-week.
I don't know about u, but I sure enjoy
reading and relaxing weekends, and I look
forward to my Mondays!
I found a gumball mechanism for my
Vendstar machines. Awesome! Works
Tax time coming up.
Yippee. 👅
I still have about 6x more donations than income,
so not a lot to report to Uncle Sam.
I began this business to support my donations!
Turns out to be fun, like the good ole' days.
Have a Wondrous Week!

NBVA Conference

The National Bulk Vending Conference went well I thought.
A gentleman wanted to nominate me for secretary, but it's a
volunteer job!
It sounded sorta fun, but I have my hands full with critters
and candy!
Had a wonderful meal and dessert at the meeting,
and if I could have afforded it, would have stayed at one
of the Sheraton's luscious rooms.
Got some great ideas and yummy samples at the conference.
Next year it's in Vegas.
Been there, done that, but maybe I can afford it by
this time next year...

Monday, March 13, 2017

Missed a Monday :(

Oops! Missed a Monday, didn't I..?
The next Monday, March 13 doesn't occur until 2023.
Do u think I will still be posting here with candy updates?
Will candy be the same in 2023?
I know Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and all the Candy
Holidays will still very much be around, and I look forward
to each and every one of them.
March is Irish American month.
That means green apples, grapes, and limes.
Happy March candy month!

Happy Presidents Day...!

Yessir! Mondays in 2017 sure show promise!
For those of u that may remember, Reagan enjoyed his jelly beans. 
Did u know that Obama preferred salted caramels? 
Or that George Washington preferred Hazelnuts? 
Bet u thought it was cherries, didn't u? 
 I would refer u to my new website, for 
Thomas Jefferson's favorite wines, (still under construction). 
Maybe one day, there will be a wine flavored jelly bean..?
In the meantime, have an awesome Presidents Day!

Happy Valentine's Day Eve!

It takes a LOT of candy machines to break even.
A placement today to Kroger is a plus!
I removed a machine from a previous slow placement
over to the new place.
Lots of room to work, friendly, yummy!
Hope it sticks.
I'm beginning to like my Mondays.
Happy Valentine's Eve Week..!
