GOOD TIMES

I've gone from mourning to happy days...Had today off, and spent it running around spending next weeks pay check..ha..Went to Bold Springs Baptist Church and got their D'lishious Cheeseburgers...One for me ..one for Babs who is suffereing from allergies..the wind is really blowing here and it's about to do her in..She lives in the back where there is nothing but field and the south wind comes right in her apt..I live in the front part where the apts in back block the wind when it comes from the South..but I get the blue northers full frontal..Also got her some Tin Roof Ice cream, as that always makes her feel better...Stopped by work to see if they wanted a cheeseburger too and of course they did..how anyone could refuse them is beyond me..Went to the bank got new checks, looked for a beauty shop in town, but think they all closed down...or moved and I don't know where they're at..think I will just slip into ole Sam Pinters(West's version of Floyd the Barber)and have him cut it..I had him cut my hair about 25 years ago when I was drunk and on a dare(everyone said he would cut my hair like Elvis' as Sam still wears a bouffant pompadour, but he actually did a great job..and for $8 you can't go wrong..I'll let you know how that turns out..Then I watched a little of my soaps...and you know what? Slowly but surely..I just don't give a shit any more...They bore the fuck out of me..
Got dressed and headed to Waco....arghghghghgh!..Only for the granddaughters would I venture into the middle of Waco..Met Jenny at her apt. and she was thrilled to death over all the stuff I got for her new place..Got her 3 pots and put Lavender, Rosemary and Basil in them..Got her small hand shovel,and rakes, work gloves, a bird house, a pretty pink crystal wind chime, an ice bucket, a lamp, a candle holder with crystal beads and $25..Oh yes, got her and Jamie identical Easter Baskets with stuffed animal, a clown rabbit and candy...She may be 21 now but you should have heard her squeal when she saw the peeps and chocolate candy..I cannot tell you how great her apt. is...she has great taste and has decorated it to the nines..She has a black leather love seat and couch, with 2 end tables and coffee table made of black iron and stone...A flat screen TV the size of my truck..The greatest looking dining room set..the table is a square block table but is real tall and her chairs are stool chairs...her bed room is completely decorated in authentic Chinese(Jason's grandma got it when she lived in China) and has a 3-part hanging wall panels.....Three years ago when having her own place was just an idea, she started buying stuff and putting it in storage..her dishes, pots, pans, towels, silver wear, etc..everything she had it all before she even moved in..she got the couch/love seat and washer and dryer for $500 from one of her cousins..Dang..I'm proud of that girl..Then we went to Magic China and had great Chinese food..I had chicken/shrimp kung pou and she had beef/broccoli and we shared..You know you're in a good Chinese restaurant when the diners are Chinese too and no one in the place speaks English..ha..I bought her dinner..she said she wanted to pay for it..I said that makes no sense, I give you $25 for your birthday and then you spend it for dinner..I don't think so.....so I had a most excellent day..
Stayed for a while and we talked about her life and her job...Like I said...I'm so proud of her...Oh,forgot I also got her 2 solar lamps for her yard..they are on little shepherds hooks...really cute..
I am thinking about going to see James Hand tomorrow at the Knights of Columbus..but I have to go to the Democratic Convention in Waco Saturday morning, and will probably need all my wits about me..as I do plan on raising some hell..I'm going to make them Clinton delegates regret their choice...If they haven't already..Wonder how many of them I can get to switch sides?....Oh man..it's going to be fun....

It's nice when the young people actually plan things out and work toward what they want. It seems like most kids expect to have everything handed to them. I'm still waiting to get what I always wanted.
You better not end up in jail in Waco. Though we could probably take up a collection for bail money. The poor cops would be traumatized though and would need long term medical treatment.
Yum, Cheeseburgers.

did you use chopsticks?

we went for dim sum on monday and i embarrassed the lovely mrs myshkin with my chopstick skills. those fucking shrimp dumplings are slippery.

Reading your post has made me hungry for chinese cheeseburgers...I dont even think they exist but I am hungry now.

jan said...

I'm looking forward to your appearance at the Democratic convention making national news. I mean it just has to.

Elizabeth said...

I'll take a cheeseburger too, please (to go with my RC cola and my Moon Pie!).

I swear, Granny, you talk tough, but you are clearly a sweetie and softie under it all, and a wonderful friend and grandmother. Wish my kids had a grandma like you (my mother lives out of state, and the KH's mother is a black-out drunk). Thanks for all the candles and kind messages. It's meant a lot to me during all this mess. xoxo

Happy Daze is always a good state to be in, especially with cheeseburgers and tin roof ice cream.

Are you really a grandma or is this some sort of act?
You are way too cool to be a grandma...

Away with the hamburgers woman! Summer is coming and I need to look good in my swimsuit. Yes... it's that time of year: DIETING. No chocolate, no fried foods, no whipped cream in my lattes (sob), no desserts, no breads.... ack. Good think I like veggies and fruit.

Mimi said...

I would love to go to the convention with you! I would so not be surprised if I ever see you on the news at one of those things! Actually you should have your own damn political talk show! I would never miss it!

Good luck converting those Clinton delegates. I was actually thinking about you while listening to NPR about the Texas Two-Step....

Good luck, and be well.

tina said...

Christie said...

What a perfect day. Sorry about the Richard Widmark thing, I'd be a lot sadder if I hadn't been thinking he was already dead. Oops, my bad.

You use to watch soaps but now you find them boring? I think that's a sign that you're not getting older, you're getting smarter!

Allan said...

My goddess! JS went to Waco and now she's vanished...

Even pagans have to admit: the Baptists know how to eat.
