2012, WHAT?

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Thought I'd post this since it's Sunday...How weird that this is Revelations, Chapter 20...Verse 12....Just saying...Hahaa....Oh quit worrying...Love ...Love... Love....and Laughter....That's what it's Really all about! Now go enjoy the day...Lolol

Reading and Paying It Forward...

I hope, those of you that read Ann's blog, don't think I "borrowed" Duke....I DID NOT!!!Hahaaa...but it Does look like him though...And it IS something he would, I mean. He's an Extremely intelligent dog...Well, Anyway...I've created a post on my photo blog on how to enlarge your photos, for those of you that have asked. Just paying it forward.
Have been trying to get started on Glenn Becks new novel, The Overton Window. I've managed to get about three pages read. Good read So Far!Hahaa...maybe I'll get more pages in tonight.
This morning, as I came out the back door to go to my car, I heard...rain! Yes! It had started raining...So Glad! We need it here.
Well, guess I'll get in the kitchen and make Hubby his supper...It being Thursday, there Might be something rolling around in the fridge...but just barely...Happy night y'all.

You're Getting Warmer...

I must admit that it IS getting warmer. It's been hovering around 100 degrees for days now. We have a slight chance for rain Thursday...maybe. I will Not complain though. I DO NOT like the cold and especially cold with rain. I'll suffer the heat Anyday.
I took this when we went to San Antonio a few weeks ago...and I Can't remember it's name!! They can get huge under the proper conditions. Do you recognise it? I gave it to my SIL since her thumb is green...Mine is a definite, smudgy black!
Other than that, nothing huge has been going on here. Hubby found a wet spot on his office carpet...We have A/Cs upstairs in the attic so I said the condensate line was probably stopped up...He thought it might have come from the old Dr Pepper machine on the opposite wall. I'll be curious to see who was right when he gets home...Hahaaa...
Hope you all have a Happy night...Is it Friday yet?

Father's Day...

A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father's Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that it would become commercialized. US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation. Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had been defeated by Congress. In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus "[singling] out just one of our two parents" In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. Wikipedia
I love and Miss you Daddy.....

Flag Day

Today is Flag Day...God Bless and Keep the United States of America. Did you know it's a myth that Betsy Ross created and designed our first flag? A man by the name of Francis Hopkinson from New Jersey should receive the credit. Why can't schools get the history Right? I grew up believing it was Miz Betsy as well...I have Since learned to, Stop Believing Everything I'm Told and to do some research on my own. FOX news aired this story this morning.
Also heard Jimmy Dean passed away yesterday...Big Bad John was the first song I really liked to
Well, it's back to work Monday ....Wishing it were Friday already...Hope you all have a Happy day!

I Be Coloring....

Hahahaa....this is what happens when you find you have some time to play...It's raining cats & dogs, the phones are slow and I've been a good girl and gotten all my work done. I went home at lunch time to make sure the outside drains weren't clogged because of the speed of the rain coming down, when I spied my Caladiums getting a good soaking. Hence, the photo. Then I make it back to work and load it up on the computer. Had fun playing but have No idea HOW it got this way!Hahaa...Looks like something you'd see underwater in Cancun....Oh well, can you tell there's absolutely Nothing happening here? But that's a GOOD thing...I hate drama.
Well, guess I'll come visit you and see if you're a bit more busy than I am...Happy night Guys!

Remember When?

Look at the price for unleaded! Hubby and I went shopping at Green's Sausage Haus, Saturday, and I told him to stop at an old gas station/store on the way home. I saw an opportunity to get some nice shots for The Brenda Photo Challenge due THIS SATURDAY!!LOL...(Just a reminder...) This should tell you how long the old store has been closed! I think the last time I saw this kind of pricing, I was first married. Incredible!
RUT ROW ALERT! Just hearing on the TV that Al & Tipper Gore are separating....No Comment....Y'all have a happy day!
