I just got back from the Dark Side...they lied about the candy.

Would it be complaining if I told you how crazy my week has been?? Again!!
I think I was saying this just last week. I'm not sure whats going on but I'm busier than a mosquito at a nudist colony. For real!

My life is random these days. So, random this post shall be.

First things first...
Armed Forces Day 15 May 2010. Men and Women stand on the wall today saying to evil; "Come No Further". God bless our Troops! Thank you ALL for keeping us safe. I love you my sailor, LJD!!!

This popped up on my ipod during my walk last night. Its been a long time since I've heard it and I've missed this song.
Love Love Love the acoustic versions of all their songs.
All American Rejects - Gives You Hell(acoustic)

Jake has been going on my walks with me a couple nights a week.
Why don't I take Remi you ask?? Because Remi is my special child who will NOT cross the top of the intracoastal bridge. You know the metal part that opens to let big ass boats through. Yeah, that part. Its only about 20 yards wide really. Well we found this out halfway over the bridge last week when he nearly jumped off the bridge when cars started going over said metal part and making loud noises. I had to practically lay on top of him to keep him from jumping. Once the cars were gone I carried his ass the rest of the way over the bridge.
I woulda jumped in the water after him in case you thought otherwise.

I pass by the mall every night when I walk and last night there was not one but three flippen hot cars parked in front. Stoopid amount of money sitting right there.

On my way back, I couldn't resist...

Ferrari #1

Ferrari #2

I definitely think I'll take the red one. It'll match my house.....remember my house on the beach?? I certainly haven't forgotten it. I dream about that stupid house, amongst other things at night.

I am 6lbs from the weight I was in this pic. Lauren was probably a year old here. So yeah, its been awhile since I've seen this number.

Before you ask......No, I have no idea what the hell that cheesy smile is on my face for and yes it was a mullet. Shut it!
The big story here people is minus 27lbs so far as of last Monday. I have 23lbs more to lose. I'm getting there. =)

And I'll leave you with the Dixie Chicks.

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of blue bonnets
And a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me

I said cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to Heaven above
And closer to you
Closer to you

Dear peedee,
First of all, a big hand over my heart for the Armed Forces today. Thank you for featuring it.

Second, yes, stupid pet tricks! I have my deal with that this weekend too. I think the Dog Stars and the Catskills are out of alignment.

Third, Congratulations!!!! And way to go on the diet thing. I'm at the twenty off mark. Twenty-seven sounds Grrrreat.

And four, I heart the Chicks.

Great news except the bridge thing,
Ann T.

All good except the chicks... They should have kept their mouths shut...

Linda Medrano said...

Dear Peedee! Alex retired last year from the USAF after 25 years of service. We both really thank our troops!

I love that gorgeous Lab boy of yours. He looks a little big to be carried though! LOL! Harry is the same way. He's sensitive about noises, tree trunks, lightning, fireworks, rain, and wind.

Your weight loss is so impressive! I'm truly jealous!

peedee said...

Yes Annie the bridge was trying to say the least. I hope Cosmo is healing up fast!! Give him kisses from Auntie Paula!

NFO, I almost put a disclaimer when I posted that video. Your absolutely right. I was really pissed when they started spouting their bullshit. As I've said before, Movie Stars/Musicians need to keep their mouths shut. I guess they are entitled to their opinions though. I still like their music though...can't help it.

Linda please be sure to Thank Alex for me! And I didnt carry Jake (yellow lab in the pic). It was Remi (my black lab) who is a little smaller although not much across the bridge. I didnt have a choice in the matter lol. If you look in the header pic Remi is on the left and Jake is on the right. Remi is still a puppy at 2 1/2 years old and Jake just turned 9 years old. This is the first time Remi did something like this. They both sleep through thunderstorms and fireworks. Thanks for stopping by!! I love Harry!!!

Thanks for posting warm sunny pictures today--dreary dreary rain in Kansas City today. :-P

Yes, Armed Forces Day, honoring service members from all branches. Flags and special deals at the ball yard for the vets and current troop.

I am lucky with the cats I've had; none have been especially noise phobic. They'll look around but not react much beyond that. My BoyCat was startled by hail on the roof this spring and did try to wrap himself around my head, but that's about it.

Hope your weekend helps you recover!

Southern Sage said...

I didn't know you lived there! I sure didn't know you'd be walking by! Hell I would have let you drive any of my cars if I'da known it!

I agree too that performers should perform. good choice of song though!

I never heard that other'n.

peedee said...

LMAO The Observer...sorry the weathers sucky. Ours has been beautiful for a week. Rain is moving in tomorrow. Blech.
"My BoyCat was startled by hail on the roof this spring and did try to wrap himself around my head, but that's about it." had me rolling. Oh the vision!! lol

Oh, that being the case I'll take the RED one Sage. You can drop it off at my place and leave the keys with my house boy. Thankyouverymuch.
And it figures you'd like that song, you bein a cowboy and all. =)

vixen kitten said...

Thank your sailor for me. It takes a big beautiful heart to choose the military during times like we have now.

Totally laughed at your description of the bridge. That so could have been me. Honey can be a total blonde spazz at crap like that! And yes, I'd have been over the bridge too.

Congrats on the weight loss!

I'm pretty sure Sage is pulling your leg about one of those cars being is. He doesn't have the whole "I have a tiny penis so I drive and insanely expensive car" thang happening! Gotta watch that Cowboy and his tales!

Have a beautiful weekend!


btw...LOVED your long comment. I need to email you about it...I just need a few extra hours in the day!

Southern Sage said...


Ladies ladies, please let me know when my penis, and its enormity are being discussed in the comment box, wouldja?

peedee said...

Ahhh Vixen I'll send your well wishes to my sailor. She's a good kid and loves her country so much. She considers it an honor to serve.
And you deserve some kudos momma!! Congratulations to your son on his commisioning and graduation. You've got yourself an officer now, and duly proud you are! Heck I'm proud of him!! lol
Wow, you mean Sage doesnt own those cars??
And I totally understand not enough hours in the day lately. No worries!

Ummm Sage. ummm, lmao, I have no idea how to respond to this. lmao!!

Sisu said...

It takes a special and strong woman to rock a fem-mullet; one day I'll send you a picture of me, my cast and my fem-mullet in 1986. Booyah!

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Hey, don't look at me! I DIDN'T see no mullet!


peedee said...

Yesssssssss Sisu!! The 80's were about the mullet. I was just hanging strong with it till the very end of the 80's according to the pic. lol

LOL BZ, so nice of you not to mention it!

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Mention what??
