I'm here. Never got much of a plan for last night. But I did make it through the evening happily sober. I told the AV to shut it. So I made pizzas, son had a sleepover, ate some ice cream and went to bed nice and early.

For today...make a yummy breakfast - I wish I had some bacon!! Then catching up on the laundry and an afternoon of lacrosse tournaments with my kiddos. Maybe rent a movie for tonight.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

I sometimes feel as if I'm missing out on the special fun of having a pet by putting a turtle. She stares at me, lets me know when its time to eat, passes gas and sneezes. The worst she does is to climb into pants legs and we have to coax her out so we can get dressed.

That sounds almost as fun as when my Goliath Bird-eater tarantula
escaped in the house.

All this talk of bacon and pigs last night got me ta thinking.
Last night I was thinking when a few of us visited a pig farm a guy's family had - boy scout days on a camping trip. I was trying to catch a pig - next to impossible.
I was also dared to "touch" the electric fence. I was giving it the quick taps etc. Finally I thought, it ain't too bad and I grab it. Picture that scene in Jurassic Park where that kid is blown from the fence now. I was literally sent 'flying' back and landed on my butt. Yeah, I grabbed it with both hands and both my feet went straight up into the air. My armpits hurt for days.



the last one is my fav...

Morning all,
Happy sunny Saturday!

Off to my new habit - yoga class, then the grocery store. I have an overwhelming urge to buy Gain and Bacon!

Drinking coffee in bed on a Saturday morning. What could be better? ? No hurry to do nothing. ..and no hangover. ..true bliss.
I am contemplating the bacon I found in the freezer. Maybe later in the morning. ..right now it doesn't sound good.
Spring cleaning, yard work, pedicure, maybe a movie. ...perfect Saturday.
I'm glad you are all here.

Brain, you just made me think of a slice of life experience I had many years ago while on a road trip. My roommate and our boyfriends stopped in a diner in a small town in the Texas panhandle. We overheard a woman telling two men how to handle an electric fence. "Just grab the whar with one hand, grab the post in the other.". Seems she was touting it as a remedy for back troubles. But whar for wire. Twang!

Knee pads? No knee pads for floor washing!! You miss out on the whole martyr cry of " you kjds, I got down on my hands and knees to wash this floor so pick up your stuff! "

Congrats on four months Groundhog day! That's terrific.

Have to get dressed. Gymnastics for daughter. It's going to be lovely here today. Warmer already.

I heard this on the car radio yesterday on my way to gym.
I think that year old frozen bacon will be just fine.

School cafeteria workers serve 6-year-old pork roast to students | WTVR.com

yeah Ruby, knee pads, I want to be able to walk down the steps later without wincing in pain. And now, I have finished b-fast started out as a quick pepper and onion omelet added leftover pork loin to the mix and hot sauce, grapefruit juice straight from the orchard - they delivered it last night from florida as I was sleeping - says it right on the box.

Yesterday was my first alcohol free day in probably 2 yrs. YAY! That little demon started talking to me around midnight when I found I couldnt sleep, so i took some benadry, put on Criminal Minds and snuggled with my already asleep son.
I feel so good this morning-my stomach isn't as bloated & crampy. I did still have the night sweats, but I figure I have had those since I had my son (who is now 6) I am not going to let those get in my way.

Happy Saturday All!

Glad to jump outta Bed refreshed and Ketchup on all the fun things here. Mosquitoes and Brazilians. Turtle Boofs and Electric Fences, of which I've had several.

Well, all were had by a good time last night. Chicken Wings in a screamin' Bar, and multiple Hockey Games on massive Screens. There were some Chicago Ex-Pats watching, so their Team Goals netted some high Decibel outbursts. I gotta replicate their 'Dry Rub' Wings Recipe. 'Tis killer! The only temporary distraction was when this College Couple took the Bar Seats next to me. Someone was wearing too much of some Fragrance - as discussed here yesterday - and that covered up any Beer Fumes wafting about. A good thing, I suppose; even though I was not a big Beer Banger.

An interesting diversion was 6 Plaques up on the Wall, meritoriously noting who had met the challenge for downing 1000 Shots of 'Jameson'. Hey, why award someone Brownie Points for helping complete 10 'Houses For Humanity', or delivering 100 'Meals On Wheels', eh? So, let's run the numbers, Math Moguls.

1,500 Ounces of 'Jameson'. 128 Ounces in a Gallon. So, rounded off, just under ~12 Gallons of Irish Whisky. ~60 Ounces in a 1.75 L 'Handle'. Our Whisky 'Wall Of Fame' Notables had quaffed ~25 Handles of Jameson. Now, pick a number. Any number. Discounted to $5-/Shot, Membership to this exclusive Club had cost $5,000- or more. Tips not factored in.-)

Almost makes the Kardashian Adventures look defensible in comparison, eh? But, hey, I was known to 'give at the Office' for such causes by drinking myself into my own Wall Of Fame. All this prodigious Drinkin' did is make me think of this Guano-kickin' Tune...

As seen below, Life is all a matter of Balance...

Way to go, Julesonya!
