Roy Orbison and k.d. lang — Crying.
What’s on your mind?
Hi Suz, love this tune :-)
hey ll — glad you like it — how’s nova tonight?
Chilly! Down to 34 now; and we may get some snow on Sunday.
Any updates on Jen?
brrrr — she had a doc apt today and has dilated to 1cm — doc said that doesn’t mean she’s gonna deliver early and she could stay 1cm and even deliver late. baby hasn’t dropped yet so there’s no sign of anything imminent. my gut is saying a week to 10 days. she was 37 weeks today and doc said julianna is slightly under 7 lbs based on the doc’s measurements.
OMG, I’m in here while the thread’s still going!! [Difficult from this end of the earth.]
Okay, now I gotta take a break & cook dinner. It’s 7 pm here.
I bet your gut is right, since you’ve been through it before and all. Probably by the time Julianna arrives, she’ll be over 7 lbs which is a nice baby weight.
hey mauimom — how’s your island tonight? whatcha cooking for dinner?
Well I am not crying… but tis a great RENDITION.. RO has always been one of my favs..
lol — hi Mauimom
i worry my gut may be getting imput from my heart which is worried that, given how difficult this pregnancy has been on jen, that she may be late. i *want* her to come early so jen can breathe again and her gestational diabetes goes away. doc did say that a 37 week baby is considered full term and not early
hey nahant — how’s deadwood city tonight?
Oh yes definitely, I’m rooting for early too for the same reasons (as well as to put Grandma’s mind at ease ;-) ) 37 weeks is absolutely viable.
not raining .. well at least for the moment… howz about you up on the Oregon coast??
i think once jujube drops, then i know that i am at the ‘any day now’ stage of waiting…
Aloha, Suz and LLN pups…! ;-)
Yepper! We’ll all be looking forward to hearing the happy news, and seeing pics!
still haven’t hit 60. looks like maybe next week… maybe… per the weather dood. still having bands of rain coming up from the south — from your storm
aloha tut — how’s paradise?
i betcha the forking hospital waiting rooms don’t have wifi :(
you can have it!! Gave us plenty of rain and wind today..
Nice chouce of Roy+KT my wore out body today was agreeing with that. And you know in 11 daze it’s the new moon.
Hey you never know – seems like so many places now do have it – worth inquiring about!
Speaking of babies, hopefully tomorrow nite at this time, I’ll be able to tell ya’ll what the sex is…!
Boy, boy, boy…! ;-)
i plan on bringing my laptop… just in case… and for sure my camera
hey homeroid — how’s homer tonight?
Heard a cool Robert Cray tune today
woohoo! i’m thinking boy tut
oh that’s sweet ll
Aloha, LL…! How’s Virginny tonite…?
Quiet and cool, waiting to see if we’ll get snow on Sunday like the weather doods say — and I’m thinking “boy” on your behalf too!
LL, I’ll be back your way in a couple of weeks.
Hi homeroid, don’t believe we’ve made acquaintance yet :-)
Oh cool! Well let me know; do you still have my email addy?
Spring so far is good to us. Still learning the W 7 OS on this new puter.
Aloha, MM…! Your Isle soggy tonite too…?
Btw, any damage to your car from the tsunami…?
Hey LL. Being an aging hippie in Homer AK. my days are full of physical work. By the time i get to LLN i am not fast enough to say much. Thanks for asking.
No problem, just pleased to meetcha :-)
evening, Suzzzz – firegods
hey ppd — how ya doing tonight?
terrific clip tonight — Roy Orbison is one of America’s greatest artists
I think so. I’ll check. I remember last time Suzanne had to remove it after the exchange. I’ll get back to you via the thread.
No, haven’t had any rain for a while, but lots of wind.
No damage to car. Don’t even think the “wave” made it to the parking lot.
sounds good, I’ll be here for a little while yet :-)
glad ya liked it ppd
“I’m so tired of being lonely, I still have some love to give”
he gives it a completely different take than linda’s cover
*whew* i remember your worry about the car
not bad, thanks — just relaxing
San Lorenzo River crested above flood stage this afternoon, Suzzz with more rain on the way.
Have to say I’m not wild about Linda’s cover of this, definitely prefer Roy’s original :-)
one two three
i was always thankful that i was up at 527 and didn’t have the flood worries the lower san lorenzo has… still being at the junction of bear creek and the san lorenzo, there were storms that had me checking the water level to see if it rose up to the ‘get out’ mark
Did you see this…?
Abercrombie Seeking Federal Help for $30.6 Million of Tsunami Damage
that’s a first for me, never heard his version! Cool!
Hey, Suze and all – just drivin’ by but saw your comment about waiting room wi-fi – betcha they do have it. Jen’s in Denver area, right? Modern hospital? I was astonished to find that both hospitals my mom was in last summer had wi-fie everywhere, even in the rooms. Take your laptop.
Hope it’s soon, for Jen and you.
And now, I’m pooped, too, gotta turn in.
have ya heard this cover by him?
hey tejan — thanks for the info. jen’s in the portland oregon area not denver — that’s baby girl (aka stephanie) who works as a nanny
and g’nite tejan
got me again — love it!
and there was a tornado in Davis this afternoon. yikes!
Yup. Any dough we can squeeze out of Obama . . .
yikes — any damage? i hope there was no injuries
Wonder if we all could get some relief after the banking tsunami. How about some small business loans to help heal.
That’s the 2nd time I’ve heard of a tornado in CA in the last few days — they’re not common there, are they?
capitola avenue was a raging stream from soquel creek this afternoon — the mobile home park was nearly destroyed.
not a common weather phenomenon here, LL
Okay, we’ll get you guys the money…. But we need a gold plated birth certificate in return. Signed by zombie Abe Lincoln for good measure.
In reality though, I’m sorry, I hope things work out for people who had their livelihood damaged =/
hey chaeronea — how ya doing tonight?
nor here, but we’ve had some smallish ones around the DC area, and one pretty bad one over in MD a few years back.
Where I live in VA, the Blue Ridge mtns tend to break up a lot of weather.
second major slide from above the road — this time south of Big Sur at Limekiln — so it’s completely cut off now
Good here, sorry for being late to the party. How are things out your way?
howdy chaeronea — had to look twice and make sure I typed your name correctly ;-)
Gold plated even, eh…? We had to pass a law here to exempt the Health Dept from having to answer all the requests for his B.C…! ;-)
am kicking back with token sleeping under the wood stove and bailey cat on the pad next to it. the peaceful retreat on the bay has clear skies (for a change) so the temps are gonna dip down into the 30′s tonight — tis already down to 41 outside
Ironically central NY is actually a decent area for tornadoes, depending on the humidity and weather systems in the summer. About three years ago we had a major storm watch for 8 counties that lasted for most of the month of June if I recall. Just the right factors its strange though because its very sloped and valley type terrian. Luckily they usually aren’t too dangerous, you just get off the hilltops, and hope there’s nothing up there you’d like to have a tree not fall on.
This was just yesterday in PA. Definitely a scary situation, but the audio is priceless.
HI there Loudoun, hope you’re night is going well also. And sorry for the silly name =P
never a good thing — yikes!
and I-80 to the Sierras is completely closed until at least noon tomorrow
Hey now, that’s not that much gold! I’m really teasing, its just absurd you had to deal with that as a state.
I actually have the same citizenship status as McCain does, I remember friends finding out about this and telling me I could never be president circa age 6. I was not happy that I could not change their minds at the time.
not silly at all, it’s cool! I just didn’t wanna mis-spell it ;-)
i heard they had 20′ of snow… the dams are gonna have to release a lotta water to avoid trouble when the spring melt comes.
It’s just a silly battle that some guy named Phillip managed to die in and leave his jerk son in charge of things at! Thanks for spelling it the way I did, I’m sure there’s plenty of classical scholars who’d have a fit any way you spell it!
San Luis Reservoir is full right now, and the rains keep acomin’
i didn’t show any imagination when i picked my nom de blog
Sure you did — you were going to blaze your own trail with your originality!
then all of them are full — i had heard that they were already releasing at folsom
I have a really boring first name =P Plus its a fun little kickoff to a bunch of world history. Suzanne is just fine!
*heh* Jerk son, eh…? Alexander just happened to expand his daddy’s little realm exponentially…! ;-)
wonderful duet. Hi Suz, pups:)
i yam what i yam
happy lucky 100 margot!!!
George singing about John
She’s the Suzanne…! ;-)
big trouble coming for the delta this spring, Suzzz
I was waiting for someone to bite on that one! Thanks tut =P I’m actually a pretty big fan of his, even though his story is just insane. Also, I don’t think we’ve ever seen a bigger ego. Even Genghis knew how to delegate and take his time, and also leave a family behind…
There’s a bunch of interesting theories on how much spreading the greek language around changed the Mediterranean + ME after he decided to expand until the world ended.
Impeccable timing Margot…! ;-)
I’m slightly sad I missed the troll wars over at the GOP war on labor thread today. I was around this afternoon too =/
i hope the levees hold
Suz, I’m going to go ahead and drop my email addy here for Mauimom when she gets back; I’ve got to split pretty soon. Thanks in advance for scrubbing :-)
***edited*** AT ***edited*** DOT net
i don’t. maybe its because i’ve modded her for so many years — i’ve had my fill of troll and attempted flame wars. tis one of the reasons i’m glad i’m here at night and not during the day
He made it all the way to Afghanistan from Macedonia…! ;-)
will do ll — as soon as mauimom tells me she has it
“It’s ripping stuff apart!” lol
It was really warm here the other day, then it hailed, the sky turned yellow, wind blew, rained…I was expecting a tornado, but we lucked out.
is ohio part of tornado alley?
gotta watch out when the sky turns yellow or green!
well I like it when Suz gets it, it just tickles me how pissed off she gets. (This is just between us, right? DOn’t tell Suz.)
Oh yes. Where we are, anyway.
Oh bactria, how do we love trying to subdue thee? He had some serious troubles there, and the Persian gates! He also managed to actually get tribute out of the tribes that are in what is now Afghanistan…. well the larger ones, that is. Most kids in the military my age, do not believe this, its great.
He also made it to the Indus!
*covering eyes* tell me when its ok to look again
I don’t deny its frustrating, but sometimes its useful for keeping in practice, and to attempt to reexamine your own position. When its just base trollery though, it definitely grates.
Ok Suz and all, time for me to say niters. Looking forward to a nice lunch out tomorrow with a friend at a fave bistro in Leesburg :-) G’night!
You can look now, Suz…! ;-)
safe to look now, lol.
*blinking a lot* thanks peeps
night all – be well
It was that jaunt down to the Indus where he caught the malaria that eventually killed him…!
Hmmm… the reply isn’t working for me…! 8-(
you must have had a partial page load.. refresh and see if its there
Sorry for being so slow.
’bout time for me to turn back into a pumpkin folks. thank you for letting me hang out with ya tonight — hope to see ya for muppets tomorrow
Aloha, Suz…! Pleasant dreams…!
Yeah, that’s usually the fever that gets the blame. Although he really was a poster child for how to die in stupid macho ways in your 20s, Malaria was just lurking there for a while.
Sorry for not refreshing enough =P
Great song, Suzanne! Thank you. Of all the singers who’ve been fortunate enough to sing with Roy, K.D.Lang’s voice and style were the best.
This song is about the Progressive Hopes and Dreams for Barry right after he took the Oath Of Office,dashed by the harsh reality of his true subservience to the MOTU, ……right?
I just read on Raw Story that the Indiana prosecutor suggested that Scott Walker of Wis stage a red flag operation against himself, maybe involving guns.
We need to clean up the third-world stench of our fairly recently hijacked voting process. said little Pollyanna
*drumroll* Oh Danny Boy…
I’m pleased to introduce… Daniel Ikaika Tuttle-McDowell…! *g*
Btw, those NSA f*ckers had delayed my announcement…
