Just Stuff ~ Fried Shrimp Day

Good 30º, dark yet, morning.

Some really good news, Aaron's wife Marie's family in the Philippines are all safe from that horrible flood that killed over 400 near Manila. Hugs Marie. Had to be scary before you found out everyone is ok. xo 

Monday night football interesting.... lights went out at "The Stick" and the 49ers still won! A 20-3 game over the Steelers. Lights out (transformer blew) delaying start of game 25 minutes. A sell out crowd sat in the dark again in the 2nd quarter for about 15 minutes. Pigs Goats and Elephants (P G & E - Pacific Gas & Electric) got the power back up in record time!

BFF Linda and I were chatting on the phone the other evening and were talking about "Octomom"....Nadya Suleman, the stupid entitled plastic surgeried attention-grabbing media whore! Well, her doctor is in deep doo doo.... and she's still out there getting attention and free stuff...
