Happy Halloween!

Halloween, (All Hallows Day) Is a holiday of pure fun, celebrated on the 31st of October.
-It is largely a secular celebration, but some Christians and pagans have expressed strong feelings about its religious overtones.
-The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture, and is sometimes regarded as the "Celtic New Year". Traditionally, the festival was a time used by the ancient Celtic pagans to take stock of supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. The ancient Celts believed that on October 31st, now known as Halloween, the boundary between the living and the deceased dissolved, and the dead become dangerous for the living by causing problems such as sickness or damaged crops.
-On All Hallows’ eve, the ancient Celts would place a skeleton on their window sill to represent the departed. Originating in Europe, these lanterns were first carved from a turnip or rutabaga. Believing that the head was the most powerful part of the body, containing the spirit and the knowledge, the Celts used the "head" of the vegetable to frighten off the embodiment of superstitions
-Rituals of October 31st.
Traditionally, children (and some adults) dress up in costume for Halloween.
Children "trick or treat" (The word "trick" refers to a threat to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given) to gather candies and prizes from neighboring homes.
Also, Halloween parades and such are performed.
And in teenage cases, "rolling, or tipeeing yards" with toilet paper and toothpicks thrown into trees as a trick to the property owners occurs.
Haunted houses and mazes, carving pumpkins, horror tales&movies, ghost tours, and candied foods also take place.

Have a SAFE and Happy Halloween!!!

John Winston Lennon

Today would have been John Lennon's 69th Birthday. Wow, what to say. There's too much to say about this man to fit in one post. Let's just start with one fact. He..was..AMAZING. Great.

Born in Liverpool on October 9, 1940 to Julia and Alfred Lennon during a German air raid in World War II.

Died in New York City on December 8th, 1980 at 11:07pm in the entrance of the Dakota Apartment Building by Mark David Chapman.

John Lennon was widely known as; one of the four Beatles, singer-songwriter, artist, peace activist, writer, and musician, husband, father, and friend.

*His best words:

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one*

Ok, I found this thing about British people, and this is just horrible!

Time for another

Month full of facts!

Special about Today:

It's World Vegetarian Day!
--Free rural delivery of mail began in the United States, October 1, 1896.
-First "Model T" Ford put on the market, October 1, 1908.
--Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States, born in Plains, Ga., October 1, 1924.


-October is the 10th month of our year.

-The 8th in the Roman calendar, and therefore, acquired it's name, October, from "Octo(Latin)"

-In the nineteenth century, the month of October was dedicated to the devotion of the rosary in Roman Catholic countries.

-By the Slavs it is called “yellow month,” from the fading of the leaf; to the Anglo-Saxons it was known as Winterfylleth, because at this full moon (fylleth) winter was supposed to begin.

- The Saxons called it Wyn Monath because it was the season of wine making.

-October's birthstone is the opal, thought to have the power to predict illness. This is because the opal responds to heat. If you are sick your temperature increases before signs of illness appear. The increased body heat causes the opal to lose its shine, leaving it dull and lacking color. It is also said that the opal will crack if it is worn by someone who was not born in October.

-Its birth flower is the calendula

-Aside from October being the month that hosts Halloween, it also hosts National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. So remember this

Many Roads

There are many roads in life we can take.
We can take the High Road, or the Detour.
I choose the High Road.
I choose to not fight, and to tell my friends just to be happy for me for finding a boy that actually CARES about me.
They just don't understand.
That phrase "Hoes over Bros."
That's how it's supposed to be.

-And then there's the New Begginings Road.
Currenty, this road holds, my cousin and her brand new baby girl(of whom which I will finally get to see tomorrow, yay!), and, Granny(Who is taking a long road trip with a friend, in miles of travel)

Just thought of this on the bus this morning. Things I remember vaguely from my childhood memories.

1. Whenever you used to go to the doctor, they'd give you these things.

2. Battleball was not a violent sport, it just resulted in poor-losers.

3. These two bands were VERY popular.


4. These things were really gross.

5. All the "Big Kids" brought you awes of wonder.

Peanut Butter

Sooooo...I'm just wondering.

Is everyone but GS and I on Blog-Strike over something?

To the post!


Mmm...one of the best foods you will find!

--Mr. Kellogg (who became famous because of his cereals) actually patented the first peanut butter process?

--peanuts are actually legumes, not nuts, and they originated from Brazil, and that even the Incas appreciated the delicious taste of peanut butter many centuries before us!

--the most unique property of peanut butter, though, is its high content in Resveratrol, a substance that's been shown to have very strong anti-cancer properties.

--Americans eat about 3 pounds of peanut butter per person each year, totaling about 500 million pounds...

--Two peanut farmers have been elected president of the United States: Thomas Jefferson and Jimmy Carter.

-- "Arachibutyrophobia" (pronounced I-RA-KID-BU-TI-RO-PHO-BI-A) is the fear of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of your mouth.

-- It takes almost 850 peanuts to make an 18 oz jar of peanut butter!

Interesting, isn't it?

Good recipe I found, and would like to share.

Marbled Peanut Butter Brownies
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 scant teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup (generous) peanut butter

1 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

Chocolate Swirl: 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Topping: ½ cup peanut butter (creamy)

½ teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Chocolate Swirl: 1 ½ to 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate – one that melts nicely, if possible (Dove)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line an 8 inch square metal pan with parchment or better yet, Release foil.
Thoroughly stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter and both sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture, stir until incorporated, then spread in pan.
Prepare chocolate swirl. Using microwave or double boiler, melt chocolate and butter. Drop by spoonfuls on top of peanut butter batter and drag a knife through the batter to marble.
Bake on center rack for 30-35 minutes or until edges appear brown and center appears set. I baked mine for 30 to avoid over-baking. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
Meanwhile, prepare topping. Stir together peanut butter, vanilla and melted butter. Spread this mixture over the warm (not piping hot, not cool) brownies. Let cool completely.
Prepare Chocolate Swirl. Put chocolate in a heavy duty freezer bag. Microwave the bag for 30 seconds. Knead it with your hands to melt chocolate. Repeat, microwaving another 30 seconds and kneading bag, until chocolate is completely melted. Make sure there are no lumps. Snip a tiny hole in bottom corner of bag and drizzle chocolate decoratively over peanut butter.
At this point, it’s a good idea to chill the brownies to set the peanut butter and chocolate. I actually froze mine for about 20 minutes, then moved them to the refrigerator. The point, again, is to set the topping so you can slice the brownies nicely.
When cold and set, lift from pan and slice brownies in to squares or bars.
Makes 1 8 inch pan

I think I have the worst luck ever.

This morning, I stepped in a water puddle(HUGE) and my pants leg was soaked.

Made a 74 on a very easy test in Literature.

Had typed almost a page out of a textbook in Tech Class when all the power went out, (It went unsaved, as did everyone elses.)

So, pretty much it hasn't been the BEST day.


Apparently GS has someone going after her with a Voodoo Doll too. So sorry about your knee granny. Love You.

Found this beautiful song from the movie Titanic.

Anyways, on to the WW

I wish more love stories were made, good ones, ones that aren't just chalk full of F and GD, but really, really good ones, like The Notebook and Message in a Bottle.

May You Rest

In Peace.

As we know, Yesterday, Patrick Swayze died.
So, Here he will have a dedication, just because he was a lovely actor!

Patrick Swayze was born on August 18, 1952 in Houston, Texas, the second child of Patricia "Patsy" Yvonne Helen (née Karnes; b. 1927), a choreographer, dance instructor, and dancer, and Jesse Wayne Swayze (1925–1982), an engineering draftsman.In 1972, he moved to New York City to complete his formal dance training at the Harkness Ballet and Joffrey ballet schools

Swayze was married to Lisa Niemi from June 12, 1975 until his death. The couple first met in 1970 when Swayze was 18 years old. Niemi, 14 years old at the time, was taking dance lessons from Swayze's mother. Swayze and Niemi had no children.

As a reaction to his father's death at age 57 from a heart attack in 1982, Swayze began to drink heavily.His sister Vicky committed suicide by overdose in 1994, leading him to seek treatment for alcoholism. After initial recovery, he temporarily withdrew from show business, retreating to his ranches in California and Las Vegas, New Mexico, to breed Arabian horses. His best-known horse was Tammen, a chestnut Arabian stallion.

Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late January 2008, and underwent chemotherapy and other treatments at the Stanford University Medical Center. On March 5, 2008, a Reuters article reported that Swayze "has a very limited amount of disease, and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far".Swayze's doctor confirmed that the actor was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but insisted he was not as close to death as reports suggest. Specifically, Swayze was diagnosed with a type of pancreatic tumor called intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm.

Swayze's publicist, Annett Wolf, confirmed to CNN that he had died of pancreatic cancer. Swayze died "with family at his side" on September 14, 2009, at age 57, twenty months after being diagnosed.

WARNING: this post deals with rights of judgement of Religion, Race, and Sexuality. If you are not comfortable reading this material, I advise that you navigate away from this page until the next post.


I've just been thinking lately, about every one's different views on things, like racism, and gay rights, and I really don't see what the big deal is! I mean, yes, I am a Christian, but I don't see anywhere in the Bible, where it says, to judge someone on the way that they want to live their lives. Everyone SHOULD be able to live their lives in peace, without being judged on their actions, it's not right, for us, or anyone but God to do! And even religion! There are people out there who don't believe in the same God as we might, but that doesn't give us the right to try to change their beliefs, that is their decision!

Look at the people, that are slash, they are some of the nicest people that you will ever meet! And we can't rule them out of Heaven, just like we can't rule race out of Heaven.

To some of you, this might bother you, but it is a very strong topic with me: I know quite a few male homosexuals, and also quite a few female homosexuals, and they would do anything for you if you asked them to!

I will admit, there are times where I judge someone, as does anyone, no matter what they say, but I'm trying to not do so. At first, I didn't like Obama, not because of his race, but because of his views, and back-ground, but now, after one of the video's below, he is a good President! No one should feel judged, in any one's eyes.

I found a few quotes, and 2 videos that I would like to share, if you are willing.

::::::Free your mind

Yes We Can

:::::::Marian Wright Edelman:
If you as parents cut corners, your children will too. If you lie, they will too. If you spend all your money on yourselves and tithe no portion of it for charities, colleges, churches, synagogues, and civic causes, your children won't either. And if parents snicker at racial and gender jokes, another generation will pass on the poison adults still have not had the courage to snuff out.

Robert F. Kennedy:
But suppose God is black? What if we go to Heaven and we, all our lives, have treated the Negro as an inferior, and God is there, and we look up and He is not white? What then is our response?

Elie Wiesel:
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
(Oct. 1986)

No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.

Wednesday Wish

Alright, so...as we all know, today is the release(long, and waited) of BEATLES ROCK BAND!

I think, this is the greatest game ever invented. Ever!

Of course, there's going to be a few things about my favorite, and the best band that ever was. Here goes:::

In July of 1957, John met Paul. Paul invited George to watch, and he agreed and joined the band in 1958. They acquired a drummer, named Colin Hanton, but he left, and they soon picked up( after many other replacements) in 1962, a lovely man who was great with drumsticks named, Richard Starkey(Ringo Starr) they later went on to record many AMAZING songs that filled the ears of the nation, and left millions of girls in tears and wails of happiness and delight. And, on April 10, 1970....the Beatles departed.
There as, the Wednesday Wish
Truly, I wish the Beatles were back together, making much much more music for us to love and sing along to, but seeing as the departures of John and George, leaving this world, this will never be. We can only sit back, and enjoy the vinyl.

Now, It is officially Fall!

Generation Swap's favorite time of the year.

You have to admit, it is beautiful, the leaves changing, it not be 100 degrees outside and such. You get to wear long sleeves and eat pumpkins, and squash.

You get Halloween, where you get to dress up and watch the little children in their costumes, searching for sweets and looking adorable... and Thanksgiving, when you can give thanks to the Indians and Pilgrims and your family for all the awesome food(*cough*...tofurky...) which later morphs into my favorite holidays, Christmas and New Years!

Oh, just how wonderful of a world we live in (nature wise anyways.)

The story of Labor Day

The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City.

[1] In the aftermath of the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the US military and US Marshals during the 1894 Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with Labor as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

[2] Cleveland was also concerned that aligning a US labor holiday with existing international May Day celebrations would stir up negative emotions linked to the Haymarket Affair.

[3] All 50 U.S. states have made Labor Day a state holiday.

Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.

The holiday is often regarded as a day of rest and parades.

Fudge Fiends

You have to love it, whether it be in milk, or dark, or white, thought I would share these funnies I found out about this addictive dessert.






-Where does chocolate come from? Actually, it DOES grow on trees. It all starts with a small tropical tree, the Theobroma cacao, usually called simply, "cacao." (Pronounced ka-KOW. Theobroma is Greek for "food of the gods.") Cacao is native to Central and South America, but it is grown commercially throughout the tropics. About 70% of the world's cacao is grown in Africa.

-In the 17Th Century, the first recorded case of “Death by Chocolate” occurred.

-Although chocolate is not an aphrodisiac, it contains phenylethylamine(PEA), a natural substance that is reputed to state the same reaction in the body as falling in love. Hence, heartbreak and loneliness are reasons for over-indulgence of this sweet treat.

-Chocolate syrup was used for blood in the 45 second shower scene in "Psycho" by Alfred Hitchcock.

-Chocolate can be lethal to dogs.

-It has over 500 flavour components!

-Chocolate has great health benefits. It helps with depression, high blood pressure, Tumors and Pre-menstrual syndromes.

-Milk Chocolate is the most preferred type of chocolate, however dark chocolate is especially popular among men.

And last of all, and probably the nastiest.....

--The average chocolate bar has 8 insect legs in it. They just get in through the process of making the chocolate.

(Actually, this IS a myth, I just found it, and thought I would share.)

The name September comes from the old Roman word 'septem', which means seven, because in the Roman calendar it was the seventh month.

They also called it Haefest monath, or Harvest month.
The Romans believed that the month of September was looked after by the god, Vulcan. As the god of the fire and forge they therefore expected September to be associated with fires, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

Life on Cloud Nine

And I'm not coming down.

Today, after days of shopping for a new mattress, we finally found one!

It is SO comfortable, Just like heaven, actually.

I think it's memory foam, and it's made out of bamboo seeds, so it's green! (not in colour)

And trust me, it is REALLY hard for me to find a way to sleep, either it'll make my back hurt, my legs are so long they're dangling off the bed and we can't have that, it's too hot, it's too cold, there's not enough pillows, or the mattress is 22 years old, whatever the normal reason is, I don't think it will be a problem with this new one!

Kids say the Darndest Things!

We were outside yesterday evening, playing with Our little neighbor girl (she's 5), lets call her, "Ladybug" and Ashatasha was talking to her mother, and LB, just blurts out(loudly) "Hey everyone stop. stop! Listen! I have some VERRRRRRY important news!" "What?" "(Pause.) I like cheescake! I like it, and daddy does too! We're gonna eat it together!" haha!

And then, one other time, we were riding around on her golfcart, and she asked how old I was, and I replied. She paused, and answered, "That's olllllllllllld....you should have grey hair by now!"

Pretty song here, the acoustic is better though.

Anyhow, thank you for all of the loving comments on yesterdays post.

ok, this probably won't make much sense, but here goes,
I wish that they don't make a remake of "The Sound of Music"

I know that GS already covered about Tasha, but I just wanted to say some words.
She's in a much better place now. Free of hurt and pain. She's watching over you, her doggy tears are the rain. She only asks that you remember the love she brought forth to you.

Bless you, and may peace and love be with you.

Starting off the stressful week.

Back back back!

If you haven't already figured this out, We don't post on Saturday's and Sunday's, because that's family time.

And, yes, I can tell the week is already going to be stressful...what's new?

I found a pretty little quote in Lit class today and the rest just kind of formed. See what you think. And if you get it.

Some say Money buys Love...but I say that Love buys Money...

Get it?
People say that Money...can be happiness...and love. By buying certain gifts.
But I say, Love buys money...because love is like a ton of money...you need to earn it.. and you need to willing SHARE it.
Now it makes more sense I hope....

Wouldn't it be nice?

If we could all just take a ride, a 4 or 5 hour one, listening to happy music, and chattering away to our family or friend?

If when we stopped it was in a big, huge open field, lay on the ground and watch the clouds, mocking shapes that they look like and when evening came to gaze at the stars and find the many different constellations?

No worries, just concentration, restlessness, and happiness...

Tell me, how beautifully awesome would that be?

“When the sparrow sings its final refrain, the hush is felt nowhere more deeply than in the heart of man.”

- Don Williams Jr, 1968

Wednesday Wish


Why must things in life be so difficult?

Have to hurt so much? Trust me, you think falling off of a LOT ofhigh places, rolling down brick stairs, and having 5 very painful surgeries hurt, right?


Really, really wrong.

What hurts is seeing the people you care about un-happy and broken-hearted. That hurts more than anything else.

When it hurts to look at your the people you care the most about because their dreams have been ripped right out from under their feet and the breath pumped out of their chests. That is what really hurts.

And, since we're on the subject, let's go ahead and polish this off.

Why are we living like this?
Yes, it IS nice to have a computer, to have electricity, in home toilets.
But seriously, why?
Couldn’t we make it the way they did before all of this stuff?
What was ever wrong with that?
We need lessons. All of us.
Everything was better then!
the 20s, the 30's, the 40's, 50's, 60's, and the 70's
Of course, there was still war, and sex, and drugs, and murder, and logically Rock and Roll, but in this century…the 21st…it’s 5 times worse! I think we all just need to….
Go back to the LOVE that people once shared, Gladly shared with each other. On the days of August 15th through the 18th of 1969, and all of before. What happened to the love? What happened to the peace? The understanding? Now I know that you’re all saying, “Who are you to say this? Your parents had JUST been born! This was 34 years before you were even here!” But I know! I live in that decade. No, body may not, but soul does. And I bet that you could ask people who lived in the good days. Ask them if it was REALLY better then. You have to have a parent, grandparent, aunt, or uncle who lived then. This is my challenge to you. the one and only thing I ask. Bring your information, and leave it in a comment. It doesn’t matter if you normally READ THIS BLOG.

It’s like the other day, GS was speaking of the old Fisher Theater in Detroit, Michigan. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL place, here, and here, it is. But guess what? We’ll never get to see it, because, ignorant little prissy people with sticks stuck up their you-know-what’s can not stand to see something that isn’t “glam” and “gussied up to up-dation” and you know, that’s really, really sad. Because of these people, these nen-com-poops we will never get to see the beauty this place held, for the first time, or to re-live childhood memories. This is what we’ll see. Those are the pictures, the one’s that make it look like a, GS’s words, “Piece of sh..” and we’ve seen the good pictures. Which do YOU prefer? Do you agree that “Something old should be made new?” or that “Past is the past, leave it at that?”It’s something to think about. But take your time, don’t answer in a rush. The past is not a thing to quickly be hushed.

People would leave the past the past, the future the future.
Don't change one single thing.
Let it Be. Let it Be.
This version will give you chills:
Editor's Note(((((((
And don't worry, this will be one of my last complaints...(chuckles) sorry. But it will be. Now it's just going to be happy stuff.


Sorry, Wednesday Wish will be brought to you tomorrow instead, because Blogger had to erase ALL of the it-took-30 minutes-to-type-this post I had originally prepared!

They can just pop up, with the sight of the littlest things.

Just like Friday night, I was spending the night with GS, and had put on a mud mask, when, whaddya know? Memory.

Summer 2004,

KY(my cousin,who's expecting), and I had just finished applying mud-masks, and were waiting for them to dry, and had wandered into the living room to see what GS was up too, and were captivated(after scaring her, and Max{the dog in her posts, this was before Maggie} by the sound of slow, romantic music coming from the T.V. She decided we were all going to try to slow dance...3 people...didn't turn out so good, but it was all in good fun. Then, we switched the music to the 70's, and she proceeded to teach us how to dance,...the shimmy. For those of you who do not know what the shimmy is, it's a dance, with movements...like so... and do, remember...we were trying to do this dance at like...8 and 11...so we weren't "developed" and found it very hard. And, if you could have looked into her window you would have seen 3 girls, attempting to "shimmy" with long tee-shirts on, hair pulled back, and green & blue mud on their faces...what a sight. But the memories, will last forever.

13 August 2009

much too long

It's officially only 62 days until Ms. Baleigh(?) Grace,{my cousin's baby girl} arrives! I know that we all can't wait! It feels so good holding a baby, and I'm positive she'll be a cute one.

Wednesday Wish

First off, can we just say, "Ouch" for peeling noses?

Now, I'm unreasonably happy/excited/glazed over with glee! And if you are in my family, you probably know why.

Back to the regular schedule.


And yes, I did change the picture
----The people in Africa get much much better lives. I've posted a link that help them.
It's a really good orginazation.
so, Go RED!

You know you're a teenager...in High school

-you hear things like, "Omigod, is he really going out with HER?!"...
-you hear "F***" every other word...
-Heavy Metal music is bursting out of every seat on the bus...
-your school's lockers have to be drug and sex searched
-The revolting smell of cat litter and sweat tickles your nose on the bus...

:::let's face it, I could go on, but seriously, what is the point?

Anyways, here's another joke...A blondie one!

A blonde went to a flight school insisting she wanted to learn to fly that day. As all the planes were currently in use, the owner agreed to instruct her on how to pilot the helicopter solo by radio. He took her out, showed her how to start it and gave her the basics, and sent her on her way. After she climbed 1000 feet, she radioed in. "I'm doing great! I love it! The view is so beautiful, and I'm starting to get the hang of this." After 2000 feet, she radioed again, saying how easy it was becoming to fly. The instructor watched her climb over 3000 feet, and was beginning to worry that she hadn't radioed in. A few minutes later, he watched in horror as she crashed about half a mile away. He ran over and pulled her from the wreckage. When he asked what happened, she said: "I don't know! Everything was going fine, but as I got higher, I was starting to get cold. I can't remember anything after I turned off the big fan..."

Alright. I'm back.
Back to.....reality.
Can best be described as today.
The first day back to school is always the busiest.
Everyone knows that.
So, no more fun and laughs.
It's all busting out the homework until the end of May.
But, just because I can't have fun, doesn't mean you all can't!
So, here's a joke:::

A store that sells husbands has just opened where a woman may go to choose a husband from among many men. The store is composed of 6 floors, and the men increase in positive attributes as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch. As you open the door to any floor you may choose a man from that floor, but if you go up a floor, you cannot go back down except to exit the building. So a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men have jobs.

The woman reads the sign and says to herself, "Well, that's better than my last boyfriend, but I wonder what's further up?" So up she goes.

The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids.

The woman remarks to herself, "That's great, but I wonder what's further up?"
And up she goes again.

The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking.

"Hmmm, better" she says. "But I wonder what's upstairs?"

The fourth floor sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking and help with the housework.

"Wow!" exclaims the woman, "very tempting. BUT, there must be more further up!"
And again she heads up another flight.

The fifth floor sign reads: Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak.

"Oh, mercy me! But just think... what must be awaiting me further on?" So up to the sixth floor she goes.

The sixth floor sign reads: Floor 6 - You are visitor 6,875,953,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Oh,the days...

The days...

Of laughter...
Of music...
Of $30 going to about 12 different things...
Of late nights spent looking at pictures...
Of summer...
THIS summer...
What do you know, it DID turn out to be a good one!

Just like tonight, we were driving home...listening to the Til Tuesday and Depeche Mode cassettes that I bought today when we were junkin'. And earlier tonight, Jaden jamming out to the Beatles' "Let It Be" record I got yesterday. That child...little as she may be, has turned around my whole outlook on infants. Before her, I thought of them as demons...and little pests..but now, spending so much time with her...she is so loved, and she's precious, and beautiful. So, thank you, "Jaden's mom" (Didn't know if you want your name on here), for letting all of us get to know her. Thank you all, for an unforgettable summer! I love y'all!

.....Here's to you!

A Dedication

I'm dedicating this post to my Great Grandmother...Ma. Born, August 6, 1919. Being 4 when Ma died, I didn't really get the chance to get to know her very well. And I really, REALLY, wish that I had. Because..now I just have photo's and video's....no memories...and I really do hate that so very much, because everyone else has so much to say about her, and what do I have to say? "I...I don't remember that..." So, Ma, if you're reading this upstairs, or you can see or hear me writing this...just know that I DO miss you. And I wish I had the chance everyone else had to get to know you. I still do love you though. Tomorrow would have been her 90th birthday.

In dedication to you, a song that one of your daughters told me about....

“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”
