The Jive Aces — Bring Me Sunshine.
What’s on your mind?
happy tuesday pups!
Hey Suz, how ya doin?
Are you gonna come to Florida this winter to warm your bones? I’m guessing the leg won’t allow for gettin’ wedged into an airplane seat, but would love to meet ya.
hey tuez — how’s florida tonight? i gotta admit, i now understand why folks become snowbirds… i would love to do a road trip and meet everyone — token’s a pretty good traveler but he’s not gone more than 700 miles.
Hi Suz, up late tonight, saw “Makers” on PBS, if it comes around over there, you must watch it.
Hiya, Suze, tuezday! Fading fast, but had to compliment your choice of video. Cute.
I was up super-early yesterday for work…a long drive, and fell asleep early on the sofa. got up and went to bed, and slept even more, yet still tired. Maybe getting in the habit of living hours normal people live. One of these days I may even have a dvr or something to record tv, so I don’t just stay up late watchiing. ; )
How are you, by the way?
Hey, Suzanne. Oh, doesn’t it sound good to warm the bones in a southern warmth..in t-shirts and long skirts.?
hey bg — i’m recording it as i type… it looked good and i wanted to be able to watch it while not distracted on the thread.
how’s nm tonight?
hey tejan — how’s texas tonight? glad ya liked the video — figured it was time i featured something lighthearted
i’m hanging in and hanging on :)
Hey, Barb…I caught some of it…saw the live=tweeting so I put it on for part of the last hour (after my basketball game was over). Interesting. As were the tweets of young women who were just shocked by the way things used to be.
How’s things in your neck of the woods?
hey openhope — how’s the sound tonight? aw, to feel the warmth of the sun on my back while walking … tis a good thing :)
Tejas is chilly tonight. We had the most bizarre high winds yesterday, blew in chilly weather. Going down to 40 I think.
I’ve really gotta head off to bed; wish I could stay and visit with y’all. It’ll be cozy and warm in bed…mmmmmm. Maybe even a cuddly kitty, if they aren’t too comfortable where they are.
Heh, dogs don’t know what miles are. All they care about is the well perfumed rest areas and Mickey D drive thru.
g’nite tejan — glad you didn’t get hammered like amarillo did
It has been bitter cold and some crazy snow around here, closed freeway for a day or two due to snow in TX, I think. Someone posted a photo on FB of Amarillo TX with crazy, crazy snow.
I worked 5 hrs of my community service today, for my arrest.
What is Maker’s about?
hahahaha you got that right :) i gotta admit, he’s much better about not getting carsick now that i’m not on those steep winding roads like i had in the santa cruz mts. he was not a car dog back then.
Oh heck, one more…whatcha doing for community service?
i didn’t realize you wudda got that storm — duh! bet you are glad that it has moved on
what service did you perform and how many more hours do ya have to do?
Nighters, tj. I wish I could see some of those tweets. It was awesome, we really thought we were going to change the world, and we made a dent. Then the fucking fuckers who are running the world into the ground today got a hold of our gains and tore into them. Daunting we are now fighting for birth control. It is hard to believe.
makers: women who make america is about women who have helped shape america. tis a 3 hour pbs show
Hey, just sign into twitter, and use hashtag #Makers to find them. I put out some comments myself, but kept forgetting the hashtag, or running out of room, so unless you just look up @tejanarusa, you won’t see my “old feminist” tweets. But they are interesting.
tj/suz, I am working at an art center in my neighborhood that is a free studio for homeless, mentally ill/disabled and anyone else who wants to come and make things. I spent 5 hours sorting and organizing some stuff today. Nice folks, easy to work there.
I have 20 hours, but I probably will go there and do things on my own, have never spent much time there after all these years, so it is nice to find out where things are and meet some of the people I don’t know threre.
hah. Just a teeny gulp of water to take my bedtime pill. ;)
About to go k’thud, I think. Nite all!
Sounds better than most community service…bet it suits you. Now, stumbling off at last.
I’ve put away all my winter gear, switched to Summer tires and taken out the Barbie, cuz according to the Groundhog, Spring is here ! *g*
I was just going to comment to Suzanne’s inquiry “How’s the sound”, Puget, that is. We’ve had some strong winds with swirls. I’m afraid of those. I assume most winds coming from the prevailing direction are okay, the trees are used to the force. But when the wind swirls around and hits hard from a different direction we’re vulnerable.
That’s the wind we had this week. Heart thumping, sometimes.
*sending ya glass o’water*
Makers, our feminist history. It was really great, I thought. I did not know or had forgotten some of it, but we really lived it.
I need to see if it’s on Netflix.
how’s toronto tonight dood? i saw a strip the city on the science channel that was about toronto… way kewl
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! I could sure use some sunshine here…! We’ve gotten over 8 inches of rain, in the past 5 days…!
i gotta admit, i sorta kinda miss the wind at the coast and yet tis a relief to not have to worry about it and trees and power lines and roofs.
That’s it, we lived it, even my 50 y/o self. Admittedly, I was too young to be on the front lines but I reaped what was sown. And I’m pissed that we are still fighting this war 40 years later.
Was it raining for your Bradley Manning 1000 Days event? I noticed Hilo had one, when I was checking for ours.
Drive by HI and a video for all our Dog lovers:
it may be on the pbs website too
I would like that community service. It’s probably not an option for a Community Service person to spearhead an art project, but it’s be cool to do a mural of handprints in all kinds of colors. On fabric.
Openhope is looking for the pony.
aloha tut — another dank dark day in paradise eh? when does the dry season start?
Are you wearing shorts and a fur hat?
I was not at any of the big events, but I was there early on. It drives me crazy that we are still fighting for our basic rights. The NM Legislature passed a memorial about ratifiying the ERA. I think it got through, but maybe not, some really lame folks in the legislature.
We’ve gotten 2 inches of sleet and snow so far, up to 10 inches by tomm afternoon.
I’ve got rum toddy coming your way, Suz …and for everyone else !
i sure as hell never thought that we would still be dealing with this bullshit either tuez. jeebus in the 70′s i figured it was all settled and done.
I think the pony died, sorry if that breaks your heart.
hey nahant — that’s a great forking video :) how’s tucker tonight?
Would that make you love me more ? *g*
*shiver* thanks dood
That’s a lot of rain. We’re having a lot of rain and I’m trying not to use harsh language when talking about rain. It’s hard to believe some regions are in a drought/heat crisis.
He just watched the video with J and he almost jumped through the screen.. Tucker sends a big W00F W00f to Token says you had better give him a treat or else…
*sending tucker a a dried bison jerkey treat from token’s christmas stash*
Yeah. I’ve been in this fight for rights so long I’ve trained the next generation! We’ve lost so much since 2000. We lost a whole lot of women to STUPID. it hurts
Oh he will like that for sure… but he Will have to wait till treat time tomorrow.. Can’t let him ruin his svelte waist line ya know…
santa steph sent him a fine stash this year
cooking with the jive aces
My Daughters’ generation are going to put a World of hurt on those who try to treat them as lesser individuals. The fight will go on but our adversaries grow weaker by the day.
hey petro — the weather dood just showed the radar map for your storm and i think you guys had every color on that map there is… red, purple, white, green, yellow etc.
you sure you still wanna wear those shorts with your fur hat?
Oh please we just gotta see pictures of petro in a snow drift of course…..
in shorts wearing a fur hat?
It always breaks a woman’s heart when the pony dies. Until you realize how much less shit you have to deal with!
that glitter can be a real bitch to clean up
Please, dump your GlobalCorp.inc government and invade us proper. Every license plate at our outlet shopping centers is Canadian. What!!? You can’t fuckin’ build malls, dood.?
We’ve got lots of Malls selling overpriced goods, better to drive across the border …we save 30-70% !
ROFL …those pix are available, for a steep price !
sorry pups.. i started to nodd off. guess i had better say g’nite — thanks for being here tonight
It’s so disheartening to reach Newly Aged in Amerika. No more arrogance. No more FuckYou-ism.
Sweet dreams, Suzanne.
