*Funny story from a checkout guy at my neighborhood supermarket.Two women were standing in line at his register.

First woman: "I had the absolute worst evacuation experience — it took me eight hours to get to Conroe, and I was stuck in the car with my twin 3-year-old children."

Second woman: "Oh yeah? It took me four hours to get to The Woodlands, and I was stuck in the car with my husband."

First woman: "You win."

"I'm your huckleberry"

Actually I got this off of watching Tombstone last night. What a great line, especially being delivered by Val Kilmer. Don't have to ask me twice with that man!

Halloween is around the corner - be afraid


My favorite holiday is on it's way. I don't post much, really because I haven't much to say. But I can't let this get by. I'm so excited and (okay) I just can't hide it (oh no it the 70's disco crap).

We really do up our house. Actually our whole street does. I live in a neighborhood called Ravensway and my street is Nevermore. So we have to do Halloween with a bang. Christmas, eh, not so much.

So anyway, we hang electric, red eyed, flying bats. We dress up and the dogs too. I draw police chalk outlying dead bodies in our driveway and sidewalk. Grave stones everywhere and smoke coming out the garage. It's a blast and the kids love it. One neighbor hangs speakers from his house and sits across the street in a lawn chair with a mic and talks to the kids passing by from the speakers. They all think the house is haunted and last year on child kicked the garage trying to get it to shut up. It's all fun and games.

But the best part is we also get invited to this hugh, wonderful Halloween party that books an old club here in town on Washington Avenue that isn't open to the public anymore. Live music, open bar and everyone must come in costume. Some of the costumes are sooo good. The invites are keepers too. It comes in a black box with moss inside and the invite is unusual every year. The first year it was engraved on a tomb stone. I can hardly wait. My husband is going to go as the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I still don't know what I'll be. I want to have a sexy outfit, but I feel I'm just too old and weigh too much. I'll figure something out. If you all have any idea's let me know, I'd appreciate the help.

We both need hair cuts!

I can't smile very well !

My son is about to crack up laughing and I can't smile real well. July 27th in Fort Worth at my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary folks!

•When he was in his 20s, Mick Jagger swore, "I'm not gonna be singing Satisfaction when I'm 40 years old."Now he's in his 60s, and he's not only singing Satisfaction, it's also the closing song of the Rolling Stones' current, absurdly successful concert tour.

Which brings us to the top four CDs on's best-seller list as of early Monday:

1. Guilty Pleasures by Barbra Streisand
2. Prairie Wind by Neil Young
3. Chaos and Creation in the Backyard by Paul McCartney
4. A Bigger Bang by the Rolling Stones

Streisand is 63 years old. Young is 59. McCartney is 63. And Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Stones are 62 and 61, respectively.

Hurricane Smurricane

We're staying. My son; however, is not. He lives in Galveston with his father (the prick) and they've packed up everything except furniture, tossed it in the back of the boat and are on their way to Kennedy, Texas. A small town south of Austin. They have some hunting property located there.

My Mom and Dad who live in Sea Drift right on the coast (their house is right on the coast actually - you cross the street and the ocean is at your little piggy toes). Well they aren't planning on leaving until Friday!! WTF Friday! It'll be too late. It's already a cat 5.

I'm now kinda worried about staying. We'll be okay and know more tomorrow if we need to get out. And if we do need to - my sister lives in Fort Worth so we got a place to go if need be.

Rita's anyone? Not us - we only have vodka in stock at the moment.....MMMMMM me thinks I need to make a liquor stop tonight.

Not a humming bird


Okay, so I'm in the bathroom here at work minding my own business and in walks this woman. She takes the stall next to me and starts humming. I mean humming as in humming a song. What's up with that?

Hurricane Anyone?

Okay, so I haven't typed anything in awhile now. Who cares? Really?

My son, who goes to a private high school in Galveston, mentioned last night that there are six new students attending from New Orleans. One of the new students is in his English class. He stated that she cried in class yesterday after another student read out loud a story regarding the hurricane and that the reason was because she is all alone. She doesn't know where her family is. I don't know how she got separated and all. Probably in the busing over here. My heart goes out to her and many more. God bless them, please.
