Goddess bless you one and all...................


Yes, today is Bab's birthday..she's the big 40....http://howtogoinsane.blogspot.com/(drop by and wish her a big ole Happy Birthday)
I was going to take her to Hillsboro to the Far Out Baths and what ever, but she decided she wanted to shop here in West. So first I took her for lunch at Pizza House. She had bacon cheeseburger and fries and I had hot wings and skunk egg which is low enough in carbs that we could walk next door(our exercise) and get a kolache. OH FUCK they were so good..I got the pecan pie with cream cheese kolache. I don't even know what Babs got, one I saw the pp cc kolache I sort of zoned out. Then we went to $General where she got some bath wash that she likes and some other stuff. Then we stooped by the saddle shop (oh man I love the smell of leather) and I bought her a Pina Colada Candle which smells so much like a Pina Colada you want to drink it. Then Babs found the cheap shit room and I bought her 4 #17 little race cars and me a pondering dragon and a cheap flute. Then we went to Family Dollar and harassed Michelle as Inky wasn't there for us to harass him. Babs had got the Paranormal DVD from Netflex and we watched it.. Holy shit!..That is one spooky movie. We even watched the alternative ending which we didn't like at all. But that is my idea of a spooky movie. No blood and guts just lots of terror. Then because it was only 4:30 we decided to go to House of Satan and do a little shopping while they put a new battery on the truck. Well, he said he wasn't going to just sell me a battery they wanted to run a test on it and see what it was before they sold me a battery. Good thing I listened to him( I thought he was trying to figure out a way to pad the bill). They ran a full engine check on the truck...............and....You're not going to fucking believe this. There is nothing wrong with the battery. It's a 57 month batter and only has 31 months on it. There is nothing wrong with the alternator or anything wrong at all. The problem? I don't drive it enough to keep the alternator charged up to turn the battery and truck over. So I looked at him for a minute and said "So basically the truck is like the driver....it's not getting enough action ." The 2 guys broke up laughing. So I need to drive the truck more. He said he knew what the problem was when I said I can fill the truck up and drive for 3 months on a full tank of gas. So me and the ole truck need to get laid. Wonder if it will want a beer and a cigarette afterwards? Oh and there was NO CHARGE..
Babs and I did all our shopping and I got everything but the husks for the tamales..sold plum out. Jamie is coming over Sunday for breakfast and then we're going to make green chili turkey tamales and watch the Cowboys hopefully kick the living shit out of Philadelphia, 'cause you know I hates them fucking Eagles. If we beat the Eagles we win the division. I can't even remember the last time we won our division. I think I still drank...
Well, that's all the news that's fit to print. I'm thinking it's New Year's Eve....there will be a bunch of drunks out...maybe I can find someone to charge my battery...so to speak..

This is Robert(Buddha_Girl's lovely son). He is probably as close to a grandson that I will ever get ..and I adore him. Considering that I've only talked to him on the phone and seen him in pictures, it's strange how much this child means to me. This is him with his MP3 player that I got him for Christmas and before he got his new haircut.

I think he likes it.
This is the baby boy with his new 'punk' haircut. I adore this and think he looks just super.

He's showing off his new haircut and his new hoodie and the new Christmas shirt I got him for Christmas. I got him the shirt, not the hoodie.
Rock on Robert..rock on.

He's also the cutie pie that is on my Dallas Cowboys win or loss games....He is 4 years old and he is a little thief...because he has stolen my heart..


This was written about Lane back in the 'day'...she says every time she hears it playing in the supermarket she laughs out loud..


I'm a hit. I got all the ingredients to make my easy peasy Pumpkin Cheesecake and took them up to West Rest Haven and got it all set up and at first I thought I was going to be run out because they thought they were going to play domino and instead they got me. But once they figured out there was going to be dessert, they settled down. I was staring out at over 20 little old lady's and a few gents in wheelchairs and figured they could take me. It took a long time for them to get them all settled in and I'm just standing there thinking."I"m fucked, these old folks are going to turn on me and I'll never get out of here alive."...But they were very sweet and eager to like me and laughed at all my jokes and when I told them I lived at the Retirement Apartments and the only thing I missed about my little house was I couldn't do nekkid rain dances in the yard any more they all laughed and wanted me to teach them the dance. Of course a few of them wanted to know if I was Czech and I said no but I was a fond admirer of Gerik's kolaches. It only takes about 10 minutes to make the pies from top to bottom, and normally I'm a little stingy on the topping cause it looks better with just a nice ring of ready whip around the top. But knowing they were only going to get one small piece I loaded the top of those 2 pies with a ton of ready whip..They were oohing and aaahing all over the place. Every one loved it and were disappointed they couldn't have seconds. They were only allowed to have one piece as they are all on restricted diets. When I was looking for a knife to cut the pies I had to get Kathy( x-daughter-in-law..mother of Jenny and Jamie) to unlock the cabinet where she keeps them. When I found out they were rationed on sweets I said now I know why they lock up the knives, so you won't get one and take over the kitchen. They really thought that was funny. I was pretty proud of myself. With the exception of saying I thought I would be screwed if they didn't like the Pumpkin Cheesecake, because they outnumbered me(they laughed at that) I behaved myself. Well, I did teach Jackie how to give the finger to Kathy. I'm sure the novelty of Jackie giving her the finger will soon wear off and she'll be calling me to ream my ass. One little sweetie pulled me down and whispered something in my ear in Czech and I said I don't speak Czech and she said 'I said your awesome.'......who knew a 80+ little Czech lady knew the word awesome and in Czech.

I had so much fun, you just can't imagine. Some of them were barely able to keep their heads up and had to be fed, but most of them are spry and alert and all have great senses of humor. I walked one lady back to her room on her walker and we talked and she's smart and alert and when her walker kept pulling to the right I said 'It must be a Republican'...she laughed so hard she had to stop walking. Made my day.And they hug. Oh my all the hugs I got. So I'm hooked and now looking for more easy tasty recipes to make for them. They do it once a month but Kathy said I could do it more often if I wanted. Plus after the first of the year I'm going to go do the book cart and will take some books from home to donate as they are low on reading material.

They like to do crossword puzzles, circle words and they play cards and domino's all the time. I think they need to have a beauty parlor there. They used to have someone come in once a week or so and do their hair, but think they need to have a full little shop and someone to run it so they can get their hair done more often.

If anyone has any recipe for appetizers or snacks or any kind of meal..send them to me. I was thinking about getting those little won ton shells and filling them with re fried beans and cheese. Little mini nachos. Won tons aren't too fattening and high in carbs. Can't wait till this summer when I can do some stuff on the barbecue that they have. Make hot dogs or hamburgers. I'm looking forward to doing this and maybe be able to take some of them to the library if they would like. Should be lots of fun, and Goddess knows I need something to do and keep me out of trouble. Plus think of the posts I can do ..ha..

So send me any recipes you have and have a wonderful new year.

Dear TIDE ,
I am writing to say what an excellent product you have! I've used it all of my married life, as my Mom always told me it was the best. Now that I am in my fifties I find it even better!

About a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse. My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to belittle me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with his blood on my new white blouse! I grabbed my bottle of Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out! In fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I was no longer considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband. What a relief! Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect! I thank you, once again, for having a great product. Well, I gotta go - I have to write to the Hefty bag people.

found one last picture of Dexter attacking me.
We won 17-0..and we looked ok..but the continual trying for 4th and 1 and failing is just plain stupid. Sometimes the offense looks stellar and then sometimes it looks like high school football..sigh*....

I took down the tree and all the decorations and decided to clean house while I was at it..looks good and smells good. I even redid all the kitchen cupboards. Dexter was very happy that my cleaning turned up 5 of his lost mice.

I was going to move the refrigerator but I finally snapped and decided that just because I have moved a refrigerator before doesn't mean I can still do it. So will get Inky to send Devin over and give me a hand. It's been beautiful out..sunny and 50's during the day and in the high 20's or 30's during the night. But by Tuesday we're expecting rain, sleet and possibly snow. One day this week I am supposed to go to the West Rest Haven and do a cooking show for the old farts. I am going to make 2 pumpkin cheesecakes as it is fast, easy and the old folks should be able to eat it with out breaking their dentures. haha..Nothing like the Cowboys winning to make life good.

His chest is so white that it blinds the camera..but you can see them spooky eyes.
Go ahead...make my day.

he spends half the day figuring out different ways to attack my hands and feet while I am reading or doing my crossword puzzles.


He loves for me to toss the new throw I got for Christmas on top of him and then he attacks my hands and feet and then walks off with the blanket still on him.

I smell feet...

pouncing on the count of 1..2..3..he drags my houseslippers and socks from the bedroom and then guards them from me

every now and then he rediscovers the ceiling...if you can see on the back of the tree, it's not decorated at all..he knocks all of them down as he has direct access from the railing.

this is him staring me down while on the computer...wish you could see the dead ends of my aloe vera plant that he has kilt..

if I pick up all his toys and put them in that basket, he tips it over and drags everything out all over the floor. He alsolutely loves the netting and the toilet paper. I finally picked the toilet paper up and flushed it down the toilet. I had put it in the trash and he'd just drag it back out..He also stole the 2 toys I had bought for Babs 2 kitteh's...I had them in a sack in the back of the closet and he'd go and get them out and put them in his basket. Not into sharing at all
come on Ma...try and take my toys from me..I dare you..


Oh...hands for dinner. When I say he attacks and bites I don't mean little kitteh nips I mean grab you and bite to the bone if he can get a good grip.

This tree has been attacked since before Thanksgiving. see the bareness on the right? He plucked the decorations off. Think most of them are on the floor and behind the 2 couches. bastid.

King Dexter....'you rang?'

toy box...

food dish?...empty...feed me....
