Aretha Franklin and Big Mama Thornton — Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out, 1980.
What’s on your mind?
g’evening pups. just getting dark outside. lard love a duck i do love the north puget sound
Aloha, Suz…! Does open and Mr. B know you’re moving in already…? ;-)
LOL aloha tut — how’s paradise? openhope come over and laughed and rubbed my head and said ‘no but we have lotsa room’…. i’m having so much fun visiting. we are currently prine-ing out. mr b started teh prine right before we had dinner (just finished and it was wonderful!)
Btw, how’s Token doing with all those free range critters running around…? ;-)
Will open and/or mr. b grace us with a comment or two…? ;-)
he’s doing great! he is sitting next to me in ‘his’ chair at the table
i just asked and she said she was going to continue working for the greater good of blowing shit up tomorrow (usa usa usa) and mr b is going to be actually the one blowing shit up. she’s doing prep work so she can drink tomorrow.
Has he found out what the ‘pecking order’ is yet, Suz…? ;-)
how american is that — blowing shit up and cooking :) that’s a direct quote *laughing*
we are having fun
oh yeah — he fit right in — shelby the dog and him remembered each other and token waltzed in like we had just been here the day before.
I’ll be babysitting the munchkin so my daughter and son-in-law can partake in the festivities tomorrow, course I’ll be imbibing at home too…!
i learned how to make cookies today using butter
This story has been bugging me all day.
Why the virus that could wipe out 400 million people created
I can only hope that the early reports about the flu research are inaccurate.
Hey, Suz…….so glad you are having fun. I’ve been lurking for the past weeks….. seven weeks into a broken arm. What a pain! I needed a break, but I didn’t need this break. Doing well…. I’ve always been good at physical therapy; I’m very compliant :)
hey zachary — how ya doing tonight? that is a horrifying story
So you learned how to cut the softened butter into the flour…? ;-)
My sister taught me how to make the flakiest crusts using that technique…!
oh no dearie — i had no idea you broke your arm… ohmystars (((dearie))) how’s it going?
magic butter dood
dearie — openhope said ‘i am glad to see you here tonight — i noticed your absence. hope you are feeling better’
she was concerned where you were and hoped you were ok
I’ve probably been getting put on a ‘watch’ list for terrorism because I’ve been frantically researching the Spanish Influenza of 1918. Like, how to improve the prospects of surviving if your vaccination has been neutralized. Or if there is no practical treatment available.
Aloha, Dearie…! My sincere condolences for your arm, I hope it heals straight and true…! *g*
scary shit for sure zach… as i get older i am more and more aware of how luck plays into staying alive
*heh* I should’ve known…! ;-)
Are they open for business already…?
saw on the news that retail stores are going to open starting some time next week .. july 7th is the earliest date any retail location can open in wa
*heh* I only want to know how fat my ‘dossier’ is at this point, Zach…! ;-)
…seven weeks into a broken arm…
I hope it wasn’t because of something ‘stupid’.
Last week I tried to convince an elderly aunt that her dozen small carpets were deadly tripping points. And she’s too frail to risk breaking anything.
I’m doing well. Physical therapy going well. Plan to have a full recovery.
My dad is well in his assisted living setting….. so glad that I got him settled before I took a dive! I’m still arranging his doctor appointments and the aides to go with him. I’ll see him this weekend when my brother comes to take me for an outing :)
And I’ve kind of enjoyed nurturing my inner hermit.
Life is so interesting.
ball and chain (with buddy guy)
Any particular strain you have your eye on, Suz…?
so ya fell? sucks having a break instead of a break…i still strongly recall when i broke my leg….
how much mobility have ya gotten back?
haven’t been to a store yet — they are not open and i’ve not scooped out what the rules are etc
If getting soap in my eyes while showering is stupid, then I’m stupid. I can’t think of a good/responsible way to break my arm. Overtired? Working too hard; driving too many miles; taking care of a 96 year old father. I finally got a day off……..and I got…. well, sloppy/stupid/ whatever. Fell.
And the stories that result………. hospital was a bad joke. /But those stories will come in time…………. “:)
*heh* I guess anything other than banana peels or Mexican ‘brown’ would work, Suz, tho, I’m rather spoiled myself…! ;-)
*ugh* Shower spills are the worst…! 8-(
its nice being in a state where its legal dood… lotsa good things about wa state i tell ya
And I’m particularly grateful to Brazil for giving me some good futbol to entertain me in my recuperation.
down home shakedown
couch time sucks. glad you have been kept entertained
I don’t think I’ve ever had couch time before…..crazy, huh?! I have to say that I’ve kind of enjoyed just easing back. But I had four months of non-stop with work and taking care of my dad after his stroke…..
I’m just now beginning to kind of miss working. And I have been gratified, of course, that my dad is in a wonderful senior setting.
Timing. It’s all about timing.
i spent 5 months in jen’s living room — i know how couch time sucks big time….. but the mental health break that it creates can also be a godsend — you needed a break but was not expecting *this* kinda break. silver lining is that you got to relax and had to focus on taking care of yourself instead of others.
And I’ve been reading along over the weeks.
And now I have to tuck in to rest up from today’s physical therapy.
g’nite dearie — happy colorful dreams
aint no way
Sweet dreams, Dearie…!
they call me big mama
looks like folks have nodded off and its just you and me tut. i’m gonna take token out to do his thang. openhope is just about done fixin’ the fixin’s for tomorrow and we are gonna kick back and relax
