Good morning and I'm about to jump in the car and go to the grocery store and then pick up the boys and bring them out here for a day of...

Monday. The traditional day of the week to recalculate, reformulate, re-evaluate, and perhaps even meditate.


Okay. Did that.

I think it's time to go to the beach.


  1. This has nothing to do with this post but I wanted to tell you something funny about Julia Sugarbaker/Dixie Carter, whom you mentioned a few posts back. A friend of mine told me that he heard that Dixie Carter had it in her contract that every time her character made a liberal-leaning speech/monologue, in the next or soon thereafter episode Julia would sing a whole song. I am not kidding. IF you watch the episodes again you'll notice that one episode she's talking about the Democratic Party or something and in the next she's randomly singing 'How Great Thou Art' in a church for a whole 5 minutes.
    My friend that told me this is a huge Designing Women buff, which I find hilarious. I thought you'd especially enjoy this pop culture tidbit. :)

    Enjoy the beach! Are you close to the beach in Lloyd? I might be Jacksonville in October -- how far is that from you? I could look at a map, but that would not require conversation.

  2. It almost always time to go to the beach. Gail

  3. The beach is a great way to start the week.

  4. Did you find your simmer mats?

  5. It's 99 degrees here today, with a heat index of 105. I tried to sit on my deck but the ceiling fan distributes hot air! I did manage to take my car in for a body shop estimate. Two weeks ago it was hit with paint as the interstate was being striped. We tried to get it off, but that stuff sticks! Well, I just turned a claim in to my insurance (like a good neighbor....) for $1500!! Highway robbery, I tell ya. 😉


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
