*cranks up jukebox* How 'bout some Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl to get a retro summer rockin'?



What can I do you for?

Happy Friday! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank goodness we finally reached Friday! This week has draaagged on endlessly. And to top it off we had some pretty bad storms roll through last night. Fortunately we were spared the worst of it. And it looks like the weather will be clear for us to hit the lake this weekend!

I'll just have some coffee today, barkeep. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Gramma! Feet off the bar! [In reply to] Can't Post

At least until we've had enough 'refreshment' to join ya!

It's cold and rainy here today, maybe some hot chocolate would go down well and *whispers* spike it a little, will you, so I can get through this very busy morning?

Well, I am in need of something bracing today! [In reply to] Can't Post

Our world came to pieces on Monday. OhioHobbit was downsized. His company is closing one plant and laid off close to 20 from his plant. It is associated with the housing industry (enough said).

So, we sit here being LATE middle-aged and wondering what lies in store for us. Too old to be marketable and too young for Social Security!

He has to start looking for a job again after 20 years. June 18 would have been his 20th anniversary!

And then if someone could turn down the temprature? I'm waiting for the next cold-front while glaring angrily at everyone who says "But we can't really complain about it being too warm". Of course we can! I don't live here because I like it warm and sunny, then I would move further south. *grumble*

A glass of Bilbo's finest in honor of my Dad please... [In reply to] Can't Post

As you and a select few are aware, my wonderful dear sweet Dad passed just a few short weeks ago. I was hesitant about ' putting it out there ' ; as Legolas said " For me, the grief is still too near. "

However, I missed last Friday's toast from Altaira and you are the warmest, kindest people I have ever had the pleasure to associate with, however virtually. I've been told here at work that I should be " getting over it " by now , so in complete and utter defiance to them, I raise my glass and say:

" I love you Dad, thank you for your gift of love and humor. You were and still are a treasure to me . The ships have come and carried you home, but where my heart lies, there my treasure lies also. "



* borrowed and mixed shamelessly from Into the West and Deathly Hallows*

There's something of everything here, The Shire and the Golden Wood and Gondor and kings' houses and inns and meadows and mountains all mixed.

....and there are Elves when you want them.

I can't even imagine what you're going through! But I'm a firm believer in things happening for a reason and that good will come of it if you hold onto hope and keep positive.

So here's in celebration of your new beginning. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Have faith! *warm hug*

Hau‘oli la Hanau to me. . . (singing) [In reply to] Can't Post

 Hau‘oli la Hanau to me . . . Hau‘oli la Hanau to me . . . Hau‘oli la Hanau to me . . .

Today is my birthday!

A beautiful sunrise this morning, Tropical birds are singing, Flower trees are starting to boom (late this year)... It is a glorious, beautiful Hawaiian Day! Bless the powers that be... Gratitude... a fine feeling to feel when mixed with joy!

I wanted to get the drawing I am working on in time to post today for my Birthday Mathom thing... not not quite there yet. I have about a third of it left to do. I may not get finished for a couple of days. So, my Birthday Mathom thing will be lat this year.

But, I still have Fiesta . . . Party . . . Party! Yeah for Fiesta.

I have a full day fun, fun fun planned. Breakfast, a little time at the beach, home to change... go out to a fancy lunch with a friend... the across teh street to the movies. What time we finish lunch will determine which movie we see. On the list: Prince Caspian (2nd time), Sex and the City, Kung fu Panda, and Iron Man.

Prince Caspian: I have seen it, I want to see it again, but I am leaning toward wanting to see something else. But it's a good "Birthday" film to see. But its at one screen today, so if we get out of lunch late, we will see something else.

Iron Man: The one I want to see most, but my frined has not interest in it... So, Double feature... I may stick around to see 5:30 showing. (if not too tired that is!)

Sex and the City: this would be just fine . . . it sounds light & a lot of fun

Kung fu Panda: not keen on animated films, usually skip them. But the Reviews on "At the Movies" were fantastic. . . like this is the animated movie of the year to see. Still, low on the Birthday movie list.


So, That's my plan, I like to fill my birthday up with all my favorite things to do.


Have a great fantastical wonderous day and weekend.

Aloha to you all...

A wee dram, please, gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

The Texas Scottish Festival starts tonight! Men in kilts! Music! Tartan! Flags! Friends!

And did I mention men in kilts?

This is the Gaffer's and my favorite weekend of the year. A shame it's so hot here, but it's Texas, and it's June -- what can you do? (Other than sweat, that is.)

Under the heading of "friends", I'm looking forward to visiting with Morrowdim. Last year she and I actually chatted for a moment, but without knowing each other's secret TORn identities. Small world, etc.

A wee dram of single malt, please, to evoke the peat smoke and sea spray of Scotland. And a bottle of ice-cold Gatorade to reflect the reality of a Texas summer.

Y'all have a great weekend!

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

WooHoo - It's Friday! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's been a looonnnggg week here. We're not overly busy at work, so the days are going by very slowly. Not that I'm complaining, mind!

Love that Van Morrison song, gramma. I'm *so* in the mood for summer! I'm a member of the central park association in our little town, and we're gearing up for our annual bash two weeks away. It's a lot of fun - we have a roping competition Friday night, a parade Saturday followed by a ranch rodeo, barbeque and dance, then gymkhana on Sunday. Since it's completely volunteer-staffed we're all totally exhausted by the end of the weekend. But everyone has a great time, especially the kids, so it's worth the effort.

I'll take an ice-cold 1420 in the spirit of the season, gramma - Cheers!

Don't let anyone tell you [In reply to] Can't Post

how much or how long you should grieve. It's a very personal thing. Yes, the time will come when you don't think about him every day, but every day you do think of him you will still miss him. My father's been gone 20 years now, and I still miss him.
