Dancing With the Stars

We are devoted Dancing with The Stars watchers. Every week, we sit in front of the television and enjoy the show! We dicuss the costumes ( he really REALLY likes those ), the dance steps, who misses the beat, who didn't finish right and who is going to win....

Last nite was wonderful! All 4 contestants did really really well - in fact, I wondered if they have been sandbagging on us?

My personal favorite is Helio,,, he is a race car driver - not an entertainer like he rest of them. Mel B can really dance well, but isn't that what her job is? To sing and dance? Marie has been doing this since she was 3 for goodness sake -- she should be pretty good. Jenny Garth, is an actress but surely somewhere along the way she had to have been taught dancing. Wasn't there a thing about she did ballet? So my votes are all going to Helio -- YEAH!

Ok, Marie,,, what's with all the stuff? Her father dies and that is very sad. She faints - oh my! Now her son is in rehab -- and they make it sound like this is new. Donnie is on ET all the time,,,, it almost feels like Dancing with the Stars is being promoted as Dancing with Marie -- needless to say she doesn't get my votes. I feel like she is going after the sympathy votes. Poor poor Marie. I do enjoy her entertaining ways, though. Maybe she should think about doing some sort of comedy show - sorta like an old I love Lucy??

Now Jennie,,, what's with her mouth? She keeps doing some weird thing with her lips and stuff. Makes her look like a pinched up old maid.... But her last dance last nite was terrific! She finally left the old school marm attitude and knocked it out! Good for her! But I didn't vote for her, either.

Mel B... she's a professional singer/dancer entertainer. I think she is really really good and I just love her dancing with Max ( isn't he just cute! ) but and I keep going back to this, she is a professional.... Yes, she doesn't dance this type of stuff, but she is still a professional.

So, now it's down to 4 - and tonite someone goes away. Wonder who it will be?
Will Marie have enough fan base to keep her there?
Will Jennie's last dance be enough to keep her?
Will Mel B's Paso get the votes to keep her going? She does do that very well.
And Helio -- I hope his score of 60 last nite keeps him going... I'm going to be VERY disappointed if he gets voted off!

Mall Crawls, Treasure Hunts and Bunny Hops

So how many of you do the three quilting hunts on the internet? I admit, I'm a sucker and do them..... get the free patterns, see the web shops and idle away the hours. It's fun! And I just love finding them all. I'm tempted one time to sign up at each and every shop for their give away prizes and see if I get anything -- maybe I should be POSITIVE that I will get something and it will come true. Worth a shot, right?

So, who else does the Crawl, Hunt and Hop???

I'm off - lets see what I get!

Today is My Birthday

Hey World! Today is my birthday -- a very special day to me! I think there should be a law passed that you get the day off with pay when it's your birthday, too!

Whatcha think? Wouldn't you like your birthday off?

Maybe next year when I get vacation, I'll just schedule the day off. Sleep in late, do what I want.

We are going out to eat tonite. Not sure what I want,,, bar-b-q, Olive Garden salad and soup, - so far that is my two things that sound good. HHMMM maybe I can convince him to go to Red, Hot and Blue for their BBQ! I just love their pulled pork and the potato salad is to die for--- yummy! Got a coupon for a free rib dinner if you buy one, too.,,,,, HHMMM maybe that is the way to go!

On the other hand,,, I love Olive Garden's salad (it's probably the dressing) and their breadsticks are wonderful... I can make a meal out of that alone.... decisions decisions decisions.

OK,,, gotta get back to work - UGH,,, but it lets me play at my hobbies.

Till later

It's a typical Monday and my dang ol contact lens are giving me fits. I didn't think I mixed them up when I put them in the morning, but they sure don't "see" right! So, I'm here at work and I took them out and switched - Boy! I could see distance really great, but nothing close up. Well, that won't work,,, hard to use a computer when you can't see it!

So, I went back and switched em again! Guess this is better, but still not good. Think I'll just go back to glasses. I am too old to keep fussing with this! And now, glasses are not the 'bad' accessory that they used to be!

What about those bifocal contacts,,, does anyone know about those? I wear the mono things, one for distance, one for close up. It's not working anymore.

On the weekends, I wear my glasses.... you know, I am due for a check up and the insurance will pay for most of it... maybe I should just go back to glasses. After all I'm getting older, I'm not all that impressed with good looks, and glasses have an added touch now - your makeup doesn't have to be all that great! Helps, but doesn't have to be perfect.

Hmmm,,,, something to consider.

The Day After the concert

Sunday morning,,,, I feel hungover and I didn't even have a drink, bummer.

But we went to a great great concert last nite! The SUGARLAND Change concert with Little Big Town and Jake Owen -- It was simply Marvelous!!!

Started out with Jake Owen ( what a hottie he is! ), all he has to do is strut the stage ( !! ), he sang his two songs that have been out, Ye-Haw and Startin With Me.... Great Songs! But he needs a haircut,,,, or a different style. Sorry,,,

Little Big Town,,, gee those guys can sure harmonize well! I admire people who can do that since I don't sing so well anymore. Probably too many cigarettes from years ago. Of course they did all their songs and some new ones!

What can be said about Sugarland??? Most excellent - awe insprining - the energy level was mind boggling. They had the audience right in their hands...

Anyway,, if you get the chance to go ---- GO!!!

The hangover,,, it has been so long since I have been to a good concert, I forget how loud they can be... the bass just bangs thru you and the music is pounding in your head,,, so this morning I feel hungover! Make sense? Shoulda had a drink, or two, or three!

Go see the concert... here's the link to tell you all about it! http://www.cmt.com/artists/cmt-on-tour/

WOW,, I never thought this week would end. It has been long and tough - you just never know how much oneperson does until they are gone. We had a guy out on vacation, he doesn't do much anyway, but I guess the little he does makes a difference.


Maybe this weekend I can get some quilting done,,, some of the things I am making for a craft show on the 19th and some stuff just to clean up the room! It is such a big mess! Material blown all over the place! It shames me... not! LOL

Ok, I'm making some Elvis Christmas stockings for the sale,,, great big ones. Found the material at the local Hancocks, bought it really for my mother in law ( the biggest Elvis fan there is ), then thought Heck! These would see at a craft sale! I also have some receiving blankets,, real cute flannel fabrics that I bound with bias tape. My DIL said she would gladly pay $12 for them ( I made some for my GS and he just loves them still - ). I wanted to have some baby quilts made up but I don't think that is going to happen.

LOL and this post never got done, either! So much for timing....

Happy Happy whatever

The First Blog Post

I've had blogs before,,, even on Blogger,,, but I've never kept up with them so I loose the address, can't remember the password, can log in! I can't promise to keep up with this one, but I can try. Maybe while I'm at work I can just give a little ramble every so often. Hmmm...

Ok,,, gota think
