Barking Cat ~ Shirah ~ Stir-Fry ~ Me UPS ~ Rum Day


Good 47º clear sunny 78% humid morning. Beautiful day in the making. Got to sleep in today too.. 6am. Yeah!

This is too funny... Thanks Debbie for sharing... Cat gets caught 'barking' by it's human ... so resumes meowing.........??

My friend Sheila Foy has a beautiful, multi-talented daughter, Shirah, 
,who travels the world and writes about the languages she has learned and the people she meets. She has the most fascinating blog... She takes classes, works in the US Embassy, shares her thoughts, reviews foods ... you need to check it out...

In her latest writings she is in the Ukraine. Wonderful pictures and stories.

When I was in the barn the other day I found my old briefcase. It has been sitting in there since we moved here in '98!


After cleaning it up I brought it in. Locks did not work so I had to pry them open. Nothing of value inside, just sales forms, some letters from my bosses in NY giving my sales stats and congratulations for doing well, business cards from customers, and a lot of memories.

Just an observation...

there must be no mirrors in the White House!










Good Lord!

Yesterday I went to the bank, pharmacy, market, and hardware store. I put money in the bank (a good thing). Got prescriptions (thank God I get 80% of that back!). Market for shrimp, red potatoes, buttermilk, sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese, jumbo eggs 2 for $3, and whole chickens 89¢ a pound. Came home and cooked shrimp, potatoes, and cleaned out the fridge. I was listening to the DirecTV radio, Malt Shop Oldies, and be-bopping around singing. Fun. Good thing no witnesses!!! LOL

Oh, Nadine. Honey, is that you?♪♫
Seems like every time I see you darling you got something else to do.♪♫
(Alternate verse: Seems like every time I catch up with you, you're up to
something new)

♪♫I saw her from the corner when she turned and doubled back
♪♫Started walkin' toward a coffee colored Cadillac
I was pushin' through the crowd to get to where she's at
I was campaign, shouting like a southern diplomat.♪♫

And then a Ricky Nelson song came on ... and I cried! His voice holds some hefty memories. I was totally in love with him when I was 15. Had a huge picture of him on my notebook,
, all his records (45rpm and 78's) Then as a UPS driver, 1980 (20 years later)
 (bad picture, but me with a 'fro' and can't remember the guy.. nice though) I delivered a package to his home in Hollywood on Mullholland Dr. He was coming out the gate and waved to me. I melted. Then 5 years later on New Year's Eve 1985 he died in a plane crash.

I waited 20 years to see him in person. Dang. Of course it's something I'll always remember fondly.

I cleaned out my refrigerator yesterday. What a good feeling to get that done. As my nephew Jim calls me "the condiment queen" but Jim, I got rid of a bunch of that!! You will be proud of me. So then Maggs and I took a ride to the trash can....


on the way back the puffy little clouds were pretty...


Dinner was the rest of the yummy smoked chicken Bill made and some asparagus stir-fried and served with Parmesan couscous and tomato...



It was soooooo good. Harley, the weird cat, climbed up on my lap and wanted to see what I was eating... well the funny guy wanted to eat the couscous! I gave him a couple bites of the chicken and he liked that too! Odd.
