"My only condition is that I get to tell him where to stand."

Sounds like a Wile E. Coyote moment to me!

And speaking of Kevin Costner--grin--I saw this show on the travel channel where they showed how to ...quarry? for petrified wood.

I'm fascinated.

Good luck with your laundromat from Hell, J-beaux!

"the road to excess leads to the palace of wisdom" William Blake

(The lovely Sarandon just yelled that outta my tv)

I thought I'd just toss that in the tumbler.

"When you want your kids to leave you alone, buy a hubcap house in Tennessee"

Laugh. I wish.

Try some full blast "Phantom of the Opera." Tends to make nearly anyone flee the premises, or at least question your sanity enough to leave you alone. Within moments, they go away.

then it's time for some Santana and a Captain and Ginger.

Reg, I keep telling you I like you...

When my husband bought the CDs for me, I had that music blaring in the house. It gave me energy when I had to clean the house - so I had it on so I could hear it from any room, no matter what. Of course, that would make the kids and the spouse  get out [who wants to stand in the way of a woman with a mop and broom in her hands, anyway??]

Later, when I was going back and forth from Modesto to Santa Maria so often I had the speed traps and times set just "so" that I could play the full thing from door to door and the trip always seemed much shorter. Or could it have been the speed limit that I was crossing? LOL...

Did I tell anyone lately that I saw David Crosby and Graham Nash last Friday night? Gads, did those two bring back the '60's in a warm sweep...and their new stuff is great, too!

SRO...great crowd - all ages. And the story that Nash told about his wife...how he met her, how he first talked to her? That's where romance novels come from!

my neighbors are NOSY snobs. I live in jerk land I swear it....we are the bad neighbors here One has this little excuse for a dog that does not shut up. Ever. But I have to laugh cause if that thing ever gets in my yard I'm afraid my dogs would mistake it for a rabbit and it would be done for. My labs are fast, one is dead on mean(to anyone that isn't family), but thankfully they don't bark like that....and Karilea, I almost choked reading that....and I laughed, it's nice to see you get spunky

Oh, you haven't seen me get spunky yet. Problem is sometimes my spunk gets me into a chunk o' trouble, so I have to be careful with my imp.

She use to be a real handful. Hasn't been "out" in quite a while...maybe she's ready for a comeback.

<--and the cigar, tyvm!

whoops

See me backspace, Ron? (found my home keys too! heh heh?)

<-----------------------------that was gonna be a long grass rant parsing the word, "spunk".

But anybody remember what Lou Grant told Mary Richards during her job interview?

That natives have ceased their drumming.

Sarah...

I'll just have to play my CD's and be content...

but maybe the beaches in Hawaii will let me find some shells...

pics galore...

and there's a lounge chair awaiting me on a veranda with my own bottle of vino waiting...



Oh BTW, ladies, just because they remove some of our plumbing doesn't mean they remove the spunk. In fact, I've got it on pretty good authority that's what they help plug us up with.

If I must try this hard to be good, does that mean I must be very very bad?

Nah, SEA...you're not jealous...and you're not 56, either!

It's one of those "pay as you go" plans. I've been paying, now I'm going!!!

I'm having trouble finding a plumber.

there's so much color to that statement that I can't go into it right now.

or that one either.

temporarily insane plea of a subject change: I hate commercials.

Does anyone besides me want to smack the creator of the yellow swim-suited women's birth control commercial? The water ballet one where they form a giant pack of bcpills? I don't even know the name of the product. But I have a dang earwig now from the song. "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, blahday blahblahday" Ugh.

anyways, Karen? How's your house sound today??

"Thursday, Friday, Saturday"

somebody shoot me a shot.

Reg? It must be my week for communications!

Another lovely phone call today, and now I'm listening to some Reggae, and trying to figure out how to utilize my other door prize from the election party--

A Rotisserie Oven! And nope, I've never used one of these before--well, not one that didn't involve a hand-hewn spike, a pit of fire, and whips and gimps and...OH

*nevermind*

And annoying commercials? This gets back to my rattled nerves and noise sensitivity. It's not any one particular commercial per se, but just, well?

Picture it:

Karen is laying in bed, kinda sorta watching something on tv--with either a notebook open or a book, and the commercials are just background noise and she's mellow, and probably chain-smoking (YES IN BED--if you spent as much time there as I do so would you) but anyhow, there might be a cup of chamomile or a cold beer on the table next to the ashtray as

BAM!!! Some damned fool advertiser (usually local) decided to get my attention by TURNING UP THE VOLUME FULL BLAST, shattering my last nerve, quivering my fingers, triggering my tics, as I do the mad dash to find the mute button on one of the five thousand remote controls, and I spill my tea (or beer) into the ashtray and ruin the cigarette that now costs a buck fifty each. <--hyperbole

But still?  

Anyhow, the "crew" has had mercy on me today. The driveway over there is appropriately graveled, and now, in the time it took me to post this?

Carole King is playing "It's Too Late" on my play list.

Y'think it's a sign? *grins*

This is why I rarely watch TV...

as for the song..well, my song right now is the new Leona Lewis...

"Better in Time"

I think so...except there was that news item about the women that was killed by her husbands coffin....

Karen,

thanks

now I have "It's too late, baby, now it's too late," in place of the days of the week water ballet song. HUGE improvement. Hugs.

yep, the loud volume busting commercials should be fined for disturbing the peace!!

Lucky you. I never win anything.

DITTO. That's one button pusher for me, and no wonder my husband can't understand why I went from sweet to sour in a nanosecond. Damn commercials...

But here y'are...

David Crosby & Graham Nash, now six days old in memory of visual and sound and sense...and I'm still hearing...

quote:
I'll light the fire, while you place the flowers
In the vase that you bought today.
Staring at the fire for hours and hours,
While I listen to you play your love songs
All night long for me, only for me.

Our house, is a very, very, very fine house.
With two cats in the yard,
Life used to be so hard,
Now everything is easy 'cause of you.

Come to me now, and rest your head for just five minutes,
Everything is done.
Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated
By the evening sunshine through them,
Fiery gems for you, only for you.

Our house, is a very, very, very fine house.
With two cats in the yard,
Life used to be so hard,
Now everything is easy 'cause of you. CSN

Now. Get that out of your head.

Reg? Luck didn't have much to do with it.

It was a Barack Obama party.  

I'm in the deep trenches of the racist south. (New Orleans is cool--suburbs? NOT.)

In other words? I was the only adult who showed up, besides my son and his gf. (I'll have to honor my stoic friend and benevolent hostess who had to keep moving her Obama sign during the past six months. She's pure poetry--at one point during the debates, I actually witnessed her grasping the television in two hands and screaming--"Answer the expletive question!!")

*chuckle*

It was....interesting to watch somebody else go nuts for a change.

Well.

I was the only one who stayed. So I won by default.

And the copy of the Constitution I won was a 'just in case' prize...it was given to me as a surprise gift, because I uttered these immortal words:

"I just want my Constitution back."

(I doooooo get to go to some of the bestest parties.)

<--not my fault it's blue...*smiles and hugs*

I've got that one too, Kari!

But right now, I'm listening to Cat Stevens (when he was Cat Stevens)

"Miles from Nowhere"

reminds me of my brother, and yep, I know you know--

It gets better though, lovie.

I'm smiling while I remember.
