Rita Chiarelli — This Is My Life.
What’s on your mind?
boing boing back one-and-a-half somersaults, tuck position, no splash (‘natch)
hey ppd — how ya doing tonight?
Hiya Suzanne and PPDCUS!
hey ce — how’s ohio tonight? have ya broke in your shoes for the wedding yet?
i can change for you
I have not had them on since their purchase. But they stretched them at the store when I bought them, and I’ll take them this weekend to Schwenksville (MrCE’s parents) and scuff them up on the blacktop. And try to negate my trucker arm tan…
If you haven’t seen this, it’s too funny. Who knew octopi had a sense of humor.
first time i wore mine was at jen’s wedding — i really regretted not breaking ‘em in ahead of time
hey tuez — how ya doing tonight?
You guys need to quit putting too much foot, in too little shoe.
Oh, wait, what do I know. I only go barefoot or wear sandals. The joy of livin’ in the south.
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…!
tuez i always wear flat shoes — they were the first pair of high heels i had worn in ages and the wedding reminded me of why my high heel wearing days are behind me…
aloha tut — got pictures?
How’s your future beer drinkin’ bud enjoying his first few days?
Hopefully, you can see my newest joy here…
I know, and after all the time we looked at them. I promise to shlulf around in the driveway working on the sandals and hopefully tanning my lily white shoulders. Me doing the the prison yard walk.

You know, I haven’t worn heels in a couple of years, maybe I should drag out a pair and practice.
Hadn’t thought of that.
I don’t do FB.
But got the same message as Suz.
Back in the day, circa 1979, I was a red lipstick wearing bitch in heels.
i swear i felt like i was going to topple over — my ankles were as loosey goosey as a 2 year old trying on stilettos — thankfully a few minutes of walking around the hotel room and then down to jen’s room helped those old muscles remember those old muscle memories. still, walking on the grass at the ceremony was a challenge
Sorry…! That was off both of my daughters fb pages…! I’ve got to wait til I get a new USB cable for the digital camera…! Tho, I did just take a new flip vid of him sleeping on my bed, which I’ll upload in a bit…! ;-)
Hundreds of Panties Turn Up Along Ohio Road
Hmm, I didn’t know women wore panties in Ohio. Those must be from Pennsylvania….
i was the same in the 80′s but with the addition of red fingernail polish, red hair and i was the bitch with a badge
hey robert — how’s soPA tonight?
It’s amazing how menopause brings one’s heels down to earth.
For no good reason.
that and a fake knee and 5 bulging discs…
So funny. MrCE now thinks of me as a “flat-heeled person.” Hilarious.
Or, those crossing the line…
I did all that in the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, but went blond.
i gotta admit — i looked good back in the day… for a time, i was the only officer who got cat-calls and whistles while directing traffic… but that was back when gravity was still my friend
PA’s fine. MA’s fine, too…
tea and cake tonight?
I think you still look good.
Speaking of gravity being your friend, ahem (go away you fellas), the lingerie dept. at Nordstrom’s fixed me up pretty fine. Thank heavens for infrastructure.
Milk & peanut butter/raisin cookies….
On edit: I can only afford Macy’s on special occasions. Not sure what Nordstrom’s has.
i’m way past the infrastructure point in my life — if it ain’t comfy, i don’t wear it (except for special occasions like jen’s wedding)
home made cookies?
kris and rita
Yep. Made ‘em myself. Milk came from the store, though, but it’s hormone free…
Plainly, a great bra can change your shape. Period.
hey robert — my local news just promo’d your underwear story coming up after the next set of commercials…
can ya stuff some into the tubes for me dood? i forking love home made peanut butter raisin cookies
Hey maybe these responses about underwear are not so bizarre!
One of Our Submarines
hey rond — how ya doing tonight?
I know The Sweety’s missing some of her’s. And she keeps giving me that suspicious look, too.
On the way to you, Suzanne. Made with Sun Maid raisins, too!
Funny you should mention that. When my husband and I went out on our first date, it was around the time Vicki’s Secrets came out with a push up bra. I got one for our date. My flat chest looked damn good if you ask me. Keep in mind I was 33 at the time. In my late 30s I finally grew tits but I also grew a stomach. My husband doesn’t like the stomach but loves the tits. I’m like what woman have you ever known who has grown tits just for you.
For the record, I still wear single digits, but just went from 4s to 8s.
Happens to us all, unfortunately.
Here ya go… A sleepy Ikaika…! ;-)
Pretty well. Been insanely busy, but in a good way…school and all, you know? The professor I’m working for is the only military history specialist at USF-they’re real big on social and cultural history-so we have everybody interested in mil hist. Big classes-and my job is to make sure Prof doesn’t have to do anything except come in, do his thing, and leave.
ohmystars look at all that hair!!! you sure got yourself a fine looking grandson tut!!!
so how goes it? i remember your concerns when ya first took the job
I’m up very late and just want to say hiya.
What does his middle name mean?
Can’t thank you enough for that vid, Suzanne. Rita sure was a babe who could really belt out a tune. Kris was a songwriting genius, but he just didn’t have the pipes imho….
Goodnight all — I have to work in 7 hours.
I prefer this yellow.
back! How’s everyone tonight?
Warrior in Hawaiian…! ;-)
Pappa will make sure he fights for the right causes…!
night, CE – be well
It’s going pretty well. I’ve been kind of…tentative, I guess, but I haven’t really fucked up anything yet, and Prof has been kind of knocked out by some of the AV stuff I’ve done, so…on balance, good so far!
He is a beautiful little fellow.
Wow! I had no idea she sang with Cocker, and a Karen Carpenter song at that. Bookmarked….
thought you might like that one :) glad ya did
i got my car back today
turns out there was air in the brake line near the left caliper — they bleed the system and then refilled it and my brakes work magnificently! the guy also torqued all my wheels and the total bill was only $53.75
*snoopy happy dance*
if i had known it was only going to cost that much, i cudda had it fixed 3 weeks ago
My favorite Rita song
Down here, the mechanic would have frowned, shook his head, and said,”Your Johnson rod is twisted. It’ll cost about $400 to fix it.” And then waited for you to leave.
Congrats CTuttle! Looks like he’s already sporting boxing gloves, heh. :)
Ain’t that the truth. Most garages are just like that around here. That’s why I get a mechanic friend to give me a second opinion before I okay the work…
she’s still touring
He’s waaaay cute, CT — how’s mom doing?
i’ve been real lucky with mechanics around here — gotten good recommendations from locals and they all made pretty much the same recommendations
Mahalo, tw3k and ya’ll…! ;-)
It’s great to see ya, tw3k…!
hey tw3k — how ya been dood?
Great spirits, she’s been taking it easy as the rest of us tend Ikaika’s every beck and whim…! I gotta say he’s already got it down to a science…! ;-)
She did a recent PBS gig that I DVRed, her voice not quite what it used to be.
Think me impolite, but I’d rather keep intact my memories of the way she used to be….
good to hear she is taking it easy — its hard work and takes its toll on the mother. she should not pick up anything heavier than the baby for the first week or so and get as much rest as she can. i told jen when the baby sleeps, the mama sleeps
i totally understand that — i’ve seen some utubes of recent gigs by artists that are depressing.
Great to ‘see’ you too! :) And, of course, our ever gracious host suz. Nice dive btw :)
What’s that movie titled in the trailer I’ve been seeing a lot of, where the exhausted parents are passed out on the bed, baby cries, Dad offers Mom a million dollars to get up and take care of it?
thanks dood :) labor day weekend does signal the end of summer so i’m trying to get in a lotta dives
So he’s already adept at getting everyone’s attention, CT.
i think its for a tv show… oh lard love a duck, i can’t remember the title
congrats on snagging the happy lucky 100 ppd!!!
That’s the very same plan we’re following here at Chez Tuttle…! ;-)
She had to take him to his first Dr’s appt. this morn, he lost 3 ozs, but other than that she’s been resting… oh, and She did give him a sponge bath too…! *g*
Saw, these “heels” over at Kelly’s Water cooler post skimming the comments and following your recomendation to check it out. I’ve never worn any but for an underwater wedding, hey!
jujube dropped several ounces after birth.. he should start gaining again soon.
hey nonq — hahahaha how’s your morning starting out?
No doubt about it, Bro…! ;-)
And, Those eyelashes are gonna be brutal too…!
Aye, I’ve been soaking up those last days of August. My favorite month.
Why put chemicals inside yourselves, ladies? About a year after The Jennifer was born, she got a bit sick, so we took her into our bed for the night, but she never left.
No more babies….
i put up a photo at my place of the last august sunset — had a darn fine one to start off september and hope to get the pics downloaded and posted soon
Very good, and even better now that Ive had a chance to catch up on the gossip here, Suz.
I wasn’t surprised with the weight loss, especially since he almost didn’t come home last nite…! He’d refused to eat either breast or bottle for about 10 hrs yesterday…! Most disconcerting, indeed…! The Dr also said he’s a little jaundiced so try to get him in the Sun, she’d said, as the rain was pouring, I’d add, but that little clip I’d shot was him snoozing with some rays that actually shone thru…! ;-)
you sure get up early — my mom is an early riser and gets a lot done before the sun comes up
sure gonna be interesting when she’s here later this month — i don’t do mornings and she doesn’t do nights
Excellent, beautiful lake too.
I’ve been enjoying the august frogs.
(Does that link work?)
he had to get used to the new way of getting food — before he was born, he never even had to think about it — all his needs were taken care of automatically. now he’s got systems to regulate and there’s all that light and noise and poking
link worked — wow, gorgeous.
that’s netarts bay looking from my deck across the bay to the spit that separates me from the pacific.
tis about time for me to head out peeps. thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight. hope to see ya tomorrow night for muppets.
i don’t do mornings and she doesn’t do nights
I sooo feel for ya, Suz…! ;-)
Good night suz! :)
Sweet Dreams, Suz…!
