The Party’s Over

June 13, 2011

Turn out the lights, the party’s over, they say that all good things must end, call it a run, the party’s over – and tomorrow will start the same ole thing again!

Have we reached the end?  I think so.  It’s been fun, laughs, tears, and good times.  We started as strangers, on a strange blog, and became life long friends.   I hope we will always talk through e-mails, facebook, wherever.   I’ve enjoyed doing posts, looking for things to write about, pictures, but unless ya’ll disagree, I think we’ve come to the crossroads.  My deep affection to all!  You will always be in my heart – and hopefully keeping me up-to-date on your adventures, always.  One chapter closes – but there is always another one waiting to be written (Jexiee – hint hint – looking forward to reading your first book).   For the record:  I have published 272 post to this site!  Amazing.


Ugh! Here Comes The Summer Heat!

June 9, 2011

Summer is almost upon us – the weather is as Robin Williams said in the movie Good Morning Viet Nam Adrian Cronauer: I just want to begin by saying to Roosevelt E. Roosevelt, what it is, what it shall be, what it was. The weather out there today is hot and shyietty with continued hot and shyietty in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a pissy weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it’s hotter than a snake’s backside in a wagon rut.

I want to go outside, but as soon as you step out, the melting process begins.  Going swimming is a good idea, but you gotta have those underwater shoes on to walk around the waterpark cause you can’t bare the feet, you won’t be walking for months because of the hot fry your eggs sidewalk you’d be walking on and then spend the rest of the summer in the nice cool air-conditioned house – wait, maybe that’s not so bad??? 

Of course you could spend time “under the boardwalk” but you know what goes on under there!  And you’d still need those water shoes to get there, cause the sand would have the same effect on your toes as the hot frypan sidewalk. 

I watch youth baseball – and you have to give it to those young men and women, who go out on the diamonds with that hot clay dirt and survive 2 or 3 games in one day.  Lots of water, water, water.  All the while you are sitting under manufactured shade, with portable fans, until you surrender those fans to the dugouts for air circulation, and the sweat begins to do what a sauna does for you in the gym you pay membership to attend but because it’s summer, you never seem to have the time to get there!  What’s a person to do?

How about you – you have a way to beat the HEAT!  (Ooops, maybe that’s the MAVERICKS job!)  Anyway.  Happy Sum Sum Sum Sum Sum Sum Summertime! ya’ll.  


When Did It Happen?

June 6, 2011

My hubby plays poker on FB.  It’s a network game, and anyone can play.  Seeing some of the pictures of the ladies (I may be using this term loosely) wearing little to nothing to get the guys to add them as “poker buddies”.  We have Congressman tweeting photos of their “johnson’s” when it surely is not anything to “tweet” about, or suggestive messages that are nothing more than old fart’s with little or nothing to do,  for sure. When did it happen?   When has it become more important to show as much of our bodies as possible to get attention?  What is wrong with getting attention for the accomplishments we have done, rather than the cosmetic surgery jobs we’ve had performed – or are these people  trying to compensate for other shortfalls?  

 


Happy Monday….Week…..

June 6, 2011

Nothing will say lose weight like a marathon 2 days of baseball in the Texas Heat!  Games on Saturday at 12:00 and 2:00.  Games on Sunday starting at 10:00 and ending at 6:45!  Game away with 2nd place, so I guess an okay end.   Those young men played hard and never stopped. 

How was your weekend.  Did anything else happen bsides baseball?


Happy National Donut Day!

June 3, 2011

It’s round, it’s sugary, it’s 16,000 calories in every bite, but its oh, so, wonderfully good.  The Donut.  And why do we have an Offical Donut Day????  It was designated for the first Friday of June each year,by the Salvation Army  in 1938 to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.  Check your local area, because some donut shops offer freebies on this all important day, honoring The Donut!  For instance,  participating U.S. Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants will offer patrons a free donut  with any beverage purchase.  The trouble is, it will be so hard to decide which free one to eat so many to choose, so little time!  And if you play your cards right, you could visit every Dunkin’ in your area, buy a small coffe and load up on the free donut.  Bon appetit!


Would You Live Here?

June 2, 2011

They say there are snake pits on Wall Street.

Chase has learned there are snake pits on Main Street too.

Last year, the J.P. Morgan Chase banking unit foreclosed on a home near Rexburg, Idaho, that is infested with garter snakes.

They slide through the yard, the crawl space, the walls, the ceilings, even across the floors. Sure, they’re harmless, but there are perhaps thousands of them. They give off malodorous secretions when alarmed, and can even leave the well water tasting a bit like the way they smell.   Two families have fled the house in scenes reminiscent of horror-film classics. One turned to a local TV station in 2006 to document the infestation, complaining of not being able to sleep at night. The video is still available on YouTube and is doing absolutely nothing for sales. Watch the video on snakes in the house.

The next family appeared on TV’s “Animal Planet” earlier this year. They said they were told the previous owners came up with the snake story to explain why they stopped paying their mortgage. But, it turns out, the story was true.

“We plan to seal the foundation and install a barrier around the foundation to help prevent future access,” she said. “A report will be issued by the contractor to be provided to any potential buyers.”

Possible buyers might include some guy with a flute and a turban, or maybe a slippery salesman looking to replenish his line of proprietary oil.   More likely, though, Chase is going to be stuck with the Idaho snake house for a long time.

The snakes are just starting to awaken at the Idaho snake house. Chase can’t chase them out just yet.

“Hopefully, in a few weeks,” Donahoe-Wilmot said. “The contractor feels there is not yet enough activity to perform the capture.”
