There is  another saying that "A cluttered chaotic desk is  a sign of genius."

I loved Ritchie Valens... especially his La Bamba.. but you will enjoy this... La Bamba from around the world! (Ann, you will especially like the harpist!)

Thanks Tally Huntoon for sharing!
And for your enjoyment... the Mexican Word for the Day:
Yesterday Jeff came out from National Door to install the new barn door. All by himself, and a HUGE project ... taking down the old HOUMOUNGOUS door and putting up a 9 footer. He got here about 8:15 and left about 11. He did not take down the old door, I guess the guys who did the construction framing will do that tomorrow when they get here. Then I will take a picture. The new door goes up and down effortlessly. Yeah!
Then off to Jennifer's. First to pick up a prescription for her at Walgreens then to her house to help her with her puppy. She hurt her leg really badly, pulled the hamstring, and Mike was going to be out of town, so I went over and we played with the pup (Love Fox ... maybe) ...Keeper wanted to get to know the pup and puppy wanted to play with Keeper...

Took out her trash can and will go back today to see if there is anything she needs.
Then a quick stop at Bill and Jeannie's for a glass of vino.
A friend of mine, Suzanne Santisteven, made me laugh with her FB post. She is in Idaho and the weather is getting down there. She said it was time to put away the flip-flops. Someone else posted a picture on her page...

That's what I do here....

Wool sox with the Birkies! (see Dude's paw on the left!)
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Day is today. It's a celebration about you.

According to the creators of the book series of the same name, Chicken Soup for the Soul Day was created as ".... a celebration of who you are, where you've been, where you're going, and who you will be thankful to when you get there!"
We suggest you take this day as a celebration of the value and healing of chicken soup, especially mom's chicken soup. Chicken soup has long been seen as remedial for colds, flus, and just about anything that ails you. You can't find that healing in a can. You can only find it in mom's homemade chicken soup.
Have a happy Chicken Soup for the Soul Day. (This recipe is GOOD and easy!)
