SHABOOM.....




This is being brought to you by the tunes of the fifty's...thanks to my new friends in Kinsgland, Texas...Jack and Diane..they are the neighbors that live across the street from Bolish and were so much help to me when I was staying there..Diane loaned me books to read when I read all the books I had brought with me..and told me how to get to the library and came and sat with Bolish so I could get out by myself for a while..which was 2 hours and was a real blessing for me...Jack down loaded all these song for me on 2 disc's...all the great hits from the 50's..just love it...so thanks Jack and Diane for being such great friends...

OK..now to the latest, here in West,by Goddess, Texas....sad to say our graduation party for Jenny was uneventful..we didn't get thrown out..and as Bolish would say..every thing was copacetic..Jenny looked so beautiful..but then so did Jamie..I have 2 outstanding and lovely granddaughters..and Jenny is now a full fledged Dental Assistant..whodathunkit..?..I found out there is a Marshall's here in Waco so we will go and take her shoes back here and not have to send them off to Austin for Lane to exchange them.I got lots of compliments on my new haircut, and weight loss...and Thom teased me about my Baby Phats..But he was more impressed with the fact that I sat next to his very straight laced and religious sister in law and her 2 kids and didn't say fuck...it was such a momentous occasion to him that he called Maryjo and commented on it...jeez..don't say fuck for 3 hours and they want to erect a monument..Maryjo said 'dang Thom, she's 63 years old..she knows when to say fuck and not to say fuck.'...guess Thom didn't know that..He actually came over and mentioned to me that she was very religious and to please not say anything that would freak her out...I looked at him and said..'sorry Thom, you're about 45 minutes to late.'...You will never know how close I came to standing up and saying..'well, I hadn't thought about saying fuck but now that you bring it up....fuck you.'and leaving..but for Jenny's sake I didn't...but it really pissed me off and to be honest..hurt my feelings..but gee..what's new about that?..The good thing is ...Maryjo and I are back on speaking terms..she said she had been bragging about me to her friends..that everyone is now into the eating good for good health and that her mother had been feeding her good stuff long before it was popular..she was taking yogurt, gazpacho and chopped veggies to school in her lunch box when she was in first grade..She is also going to go see about a new part time job..she works two days a week at the union lawyers office and volunteers at the museum and does beautiful flower arrangements.

Her friend has a business in lower Haight and they need someone to work there for 2 days a week for short hours..It's one of those health clinics(?)...where they give acupuncture, Chinese massages, etc..and think sell medicinal marajuana..not sure..ha...Man, don't you just love San Francisco..?...So..so far..me and Mojo are back to being related..and that's grand.

I was at Caritas the other day and found some more albums..for $10 I got:

Carol King--Tapestry

Bruce Springsteen--Born To Run

Bruce Springsteen--Born in the U.S.A.



Pearl Bailey( I love Pearl Bailey)For Adult



Listening


Joan Baez--Joan



Alice Cooper--Special Force

Simon and Garfunkel--Parsley, Sage,Rosemary and Thyme

Frank Sinatra-- This Love of Mine

Jeff Beck Group

Johnny Cash--The Johnny Cash Show

How cool is that?...

Then yesterday I went by Wolf's Bar and snagged Inky as he was getting off work(he has a cleaning company)..and we went to the car wash and hauled my big ass rug out of the back of the truck where it has been for 8 months..Through snow, rain, hail,and heat...figured if it was ok...great..if not..would just toss it..but we spend $5 in quarters and cleaned that sucker right up...It looks like a brand new rug...we brought it home and draped it across the railing by the yard and it was so hot..it dried in about 3 hours..it's 8x8 and fit right in the floor of the living room...from in front of couch to the entrance door..it really looks nice..so slowly but surely I am getting the apt. to look like a home...a couple of more political survey phone calls...and I'll be plum happy..

holy shit.."love me tender" by Elvis is on that first disc...now that's really cool!

To top off my week????? The Cowboys are 2-0 preseason..and by Goddess, they are really looking good..defense is defensing, offense if offensive...and I'm crazy about our coach..He's a Texas boy and is the son of 'Bum Philips',

can't get any better then that...yupper.....

Yellowdog's life is pretty fucking good...

The 50's IS rock and roll,and That Simon and Garfunkle album is my very favorite!
I don't have a favorite football team,so I'm adopting the Cowboys..and not just 'cause of the cheerleaders.

Nick said...

I miss Johnny Cash

Josh said...

Ah, sounds like your reaping your karmic dividends.

My mom tells me I should never mention anything about my orientation to any family members, since "it's none of their business"... which it isn't, but I am offended that I am being encouraged to keep that part of my life hidden since it "might" bother other people.

Cherlee's said...

Wow you found a great find for 10 dollars. It sound like things are better for you it's great to hear. And high five on your weight loss! I have to get my fat ass moving to lol Sending hugs

jan said...

Wow, I'm about to trek to West Texas to get in on your album buys. I have the Pearl Bailey adults and it is such a classic. "She had to go and lose it at the Astor."

I can see the statue now: "Yellowdog Granny: She went two hours without saying fuck. All hail.

yellowdog granny said...

sling:some of the songs on those 2 discs are just fantastic..and that 's one of my favorite albums too..
nick:me too..but really miss ole waylon...sigh*
josh:I'll come be yo'mama ..i'll brag on your ass...all over town..
cheerlee:I love the albums..now i have to get my 'record player' fixed..ha..
jan:isn't she just fantastic..and have wanted that album for the longest time...I used to have a plaque that said'jackie brown(first marriage)she has the fastest 'fuck you' in town....my bar customers got it for me..

BBC said...

Maryjo said 'dang Thom, she's 63 years old..she knows when to say fuck and not to say fuck.

Just say it when you feel like it. If others can't handle it, fuck'em.

I listened to a ZZ TOP tape for a while last week, you know, I really can't get into them like I can Johnny or Elvis. Hugs.

Cyberoutlaw said...

Holy smokes! Ten albums for ten bucks? We used to have some pretty good secondhand record (vinyl) shops downtown, but CDs pretty much killed them. Sounds like you've got a great place there.

Junebugg said...

Sounds like the Goddess is showering you with blessings, glad to hear all the family relations are going well. I'm jealous of your music collection, but I've got so many CDs that I've forgotten half of what I've got. I loaded tons of them on my Ipod to walk too and sometimes I hear a song that I can't identify and think "Damn, that's good, wonder who it is?"

Nit Wit said...

More records to think about playing on your broken record player. When you get it fixed I can just see the Little Asshole turning in into a merry go round.
I would have never thought to clean a carpet in a car wash. I don't even use them to clean my truck.
I have this image of you sitting next to the hyper religious women and start trying to convert her to Paganism.
In my experience they have no problem forcing their views on you. I don't think you should change the way you are just to conform to other peoples up tight opinion of what is proper.
I get to look forward to a lot of graduations for the next 18 years.
Gives me another reason to hang around.

the rube said...

great deal on the albums, somehow sinatra is on my A list now.

now that i'm officially pissed off at the steelers, the cowboys and T.O. have moved up a notch.

Cheesemeister said...

My evil sense of humor has gotten me in trouble more than once, with relatives telling me "now don't say anything that will upset anybody." And I've felt like saying "fine, if you think I'm too stupid to know how to conduct myself, I'll just go home now." I actually have a lot more tact than some of my relatives, even with my "potty mouth."

buddha_girl said...

1. I love that you went to the car wash to wash your rug. Classic thinking!
2. As I said in my email, kudos on not getting thrown out of the restaurant this year.
3. I want to go to that place and spend nearly nothing for a ton of stuff when Buddha and I come down next summer. Got that? Put THAT on our list of things to do.
4. I want a picture of those shoes from Marshalls.
5. No comment on the Cowboys.

"Simon and Garfunkel--Parsley, Sage,Rosemary and Thyme"

I "borrowed (never to give back)" This album from my aunt at age 14 , a classic!

Hope the bad weather is missing your part of TX YDG!

Allan said...

What's the longest you have gone without saying "fuck"?

10 bucks buys a lot of vinyl...I love those old LP3 files...

...and it keeps getting better. You are on my list of favorite blogs...

...it's the ellipses. I luv 'em...

texlahoma said...

I think Carol King was on an old Saturday Night Live. She's in her apartment, playing "All you've got to do is call" her boyfriend is outside yelling and pleading for help but, oblivious, she just keeps on playing.

Earl said...

LIFE IS A FUCKING JOKE AND THEN WE GET TO ROT HAVE FUN WITH THE MACHINE HOUSE.

BBC said...

Earl sure is one sick dude, isn't he?

yellowdog granny said...

bbc:i always say what i want..it works well for me so far..
cyberoutlaw:this is the second time i got a bunch of albums from there for $1...could have bought about 2,000 records for $150, but didnt get them...I love my albums..
junebugg:I have a bought 100+ albums and about 15 cds...I need to get the speakers fixed on my record player..I want to play these records..
nitwit:he has already tried to rip up the speakers..lil asshole..well, she didn't try to convert me to her way of thinking so decided not to be like them and kept my peace..plus she was a really funny nice lady...and the kids were bright and funny...so seemed the only one that had the problem was my son..sigh*..hope your graduations are as much fun as ours.rube:I love sinatra..and can't wait to play the peart bailey one...she rocks...yeah, the cowboys need more fans...and I think they are going to be a very very good team this year...
cheesey:only kinfolk would be so crass as to tell you to behave yourself in front of people...
buddha_girl:when I told Inky that we were going to the car wash to clean my rug, he looked at me like I had finally lost my mind..but never said a word..if I wanted to wash my rug at the car wash..by Goddess, he wasn't going to tell me any different..he was so amazed when it worked..not me...made perfect sense to me...and only cost $5....I can't even imagine what it would have cost to be professionally cleaned...some times caritas is a gold mind..some times it's just other peoples used shit..ha
which shoes from marshall's?...mine or jenny's?...mine are posted in the post about new tennie runners..I looked for a picture of jenny's shoes, but couldn't find one..and as far as the cowboys go?>...nana nana boo boo...stick your head in doo doo...ahahahhahahahah!
pixie:isn't that a terrific album?...they are sooo great..and we so far haven't gotten any of dean yet..but he might make an appearance yet...
tex:once the bar where i worked decided to have a cuss jar..I ended up giving over $75 in quarters...would be telling a story and need to cuss and would have to run to my tip jar to fish out money to finish the story..i was telling one great story and couldn't find any quarters and my customers were all tossing in quarters so i could cuss and finish the story..now that was pretty fucking funny...they also bought me a plaque that said 'JACKIE BROWN, HAS THE FASTEST FUCK YOU IN TOWN.'..
Earl:hey earl..how the fuck are yu?
BBC: I like earl...he speaks from the heart....
