What Day Is It?

It's Hump Day! Do you know what that means?

Two hunks for the price of one

Craig Ferguson Leaving?

Dear Mr. Ferguson,

I understand you are probably upset that Stephen Colbert got David Lettermen's slot, however, late night will not be the same without you very off kilter sense of humor and your totally sexy self?

Please tell me that you've been tapped for the next companion on Doctor Who. I mean two old guys in the Tardis! How much fun would that be!

Sadly yours,

The Mistress Of The Dark

Ups and Downs

~ I'm one step closer to getting my grandmother's house out of my life. The process of the deed transfer has begun. Yay!

~ Dad woke up with a broken blood vessel in his eye. He looks awful.

~ Could someone tell me why I'm exhausted just from grocery shopping and a dental appointment? I can't stay awake past 9 o'clock most nights. I think I'm getting old.

~ Won't be going to see Gordon Lightfoot as all the good seats are already sold out. Thank you Palace Theater for letting me know when they went on sale.

~ Doubt I'll get to see Celtic Thunder too...can't commit to concerts in December, especially ones in Pittsburgh.

~ Have I mentioned my need for a mental health day?

My Little Cutie

This is little Ferdinand aka Ifyouplease (Lady and the tramp fans will get that). He's one of the neighbor's cats, who comes for snacks on our porch.

He's a little doll baby and he loves to sleep in the flower beds.

Took A Little Break

Day to day blogging is really getting hard. Not because I don't want to, but because things are so crazy. Life with dad is getting everyone down.

He has good days and bad days and days that make every person in the house a bit crazy. He has more of those days than any other.

Let me tell you, it isn't good for the soul.

And then there's my computer, or rather computers. I have a newish desktop that is acting funny and a laptop that refuses to recognize my mouse and I hate using the touch pad, especially when book blogging.

So yeah, my life is full of odd frustrations right now.

I'm cranky.

I'm bitchy.

I need a vacation, or at least a mental health day.

Justin Hayward's Doppleganger

Every time I see Keith Harkin I think...OMG its Justin Hayward..or at least Justin back in the day.

Wish I could find one from Red Rocks or earlier of Justin so you could be truly amazed.

Actually what is really amazing is the similarity between Keith's songwriting and Justin's. For those that don't know Keith, he's one of the original members of  Celtic Thunder. He's a very talented guy.  And he's definitely Justin's doppleganger!

RIP Aunt Faith

The world lost a lovely talented lady on Friday. This photo shows my Aunt Faith, her daughter Justina and her son Charles, and the little lady in the front is my Grandma. This photo was taken on Gram's 100th b-day. Faith was 99.

She was a poet, a painter and a world traveler. There was nothing she wouldn't do. She really lived life to the fullest.

I'm sure she's catching up with Grandma in heaven now.

I'm So Proud Of Me

I bought a cloudwalker type exercise machine. Basically, I can't get to the gym because of my father's health. Unfortunately, that results in my butt expanding.

I can't afford fancy equipment and we don't have space for it either, but I found a machine I could push into the living room so I could walk while watching tv at night.

Yay me!

I did about an hour tonight watching Sherlock!

That's good for a start.

Anything can help at this point.

I don't know if I'll lose any weight, but I figure if I'm on that machine, I'm not stress eating, so it can't be that bad. Plus the machine is pretty quiet and folds up if necessary, to lean against a wall.

So wish me luck!

Musings On Lettermen

I think I'm the only person that has never liked David Lettermen, so his announcement of his retirement has no emotional reaction from me.

It just makes me giggle at the people that are up for his slot, like Craig Ferguson, who has always said he had no ambition to take that coveted 11:30 spot.

Truth be told, I don't want him to get it, because it would change his show. I like that his comedy is a little naughty. I wouldn't want to see him earlier. I don't think he'd get the ratings either.

The feminists are all up in arms that the late night talk shows are a boy's club. I'm not really bothered by it, because there are very few women that I can tolerate in these shows. Chelsea Handler? Please for the love of God, NO! That woman is foul!

See, I'm in firm belief that women shouldn't bitch when they aren't capable of holding their own, and right now, there isn't a woman out there that would be suitable to go head to head with the two Jimmies. If there were, I'd be all for it. (Or maybe not)

Either way, bye bye Dave....have a nice retirement.

Hump Day Hunks

Can't forget the hunks! That would be so wrong!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

I'm so happy we made it to 88! This is a picture from 2007 at my grandma's 100th b-day party!

Happy b-day Daddy!

We all love you very much!
