Perhaps we should just forget the
Cruise ship here…
after all then we can head to
the Carribean; do a bit of gambling,
be waited on by those in shorts
already be in
Yep, I’m thinking a cruise right about now would be the best plan for this continual rain here in the Tampa Bay area… needless to say… storms are still coming in,
NASCAR has been once again postponed around the pool today… the four leggeds are just snooozing away here.
just a bit stormy in the hood!
So as I sit and read the thoughts on yesterday’s blog, and listen to some music,
I was reminded of some wonderful sayings:
“Minni don’t burn chicken” came to mind and I couldn’t help but to laugh out loud!
Then I started thinking about how folks used to use wonderful expressions;
do you have favorites or think back to a time of hearing them from those you remember today?
“Lawd, yall are like putting cats in a bag when you argue, shake u up and heaven only knows what or who is goin to fall out first“
“yall just like to fuss so you can make up”
“she dont know if she’s on foot or horseback“
“u all just like to stir in “it” to see if you can get it to stink more“
“she’s as cool as the other side of the pillow”
“she’s gilding the lily“
“if the good Lord’s a willin and the crik don’t rise“
“well butter me a biscuit…”
“go pound sand”
“i need that as much as I need teeeth in my *ss”
Oh for those ole expressions!
“when someone shows you who they are believe them then walk away” (Maya Angelou)
“if you are mad scratch your hind-end and get glad” [granny]
I had a client tell me recently when defensive,
“well after all … mercury is in retrograde!”
I sat quietly and then replied..
“well, does that mean that now your fever has broken?”
those who know me, are well aware
“I don’t take tylenol for the fever of others”.
Ohhhh lawd, must be all this rain
making my thoughts just pour out here…
Just need a little/LOT
Interesting how the brightness of friends, family, the
Universal Connection of spirit
can lighten a room,
while also accomodating the heartspace…
Once can love without judgment, without expectation
Once that respect, kindness and honor is established
outshine the sun
even on dreary days
in all kinds of ways
while maintaining balance
dignity during times of sadness
or times of stress.
Even in those times
there comes a time
when we come to decisions
of when to stand
KNowing that things will not always be the way we want them,
paths will not always be well lit or marked,
opinions will always vary…
kindness will never go out of
folks will often always speak their mind…
STOMP… and they will say what they mean and mean what they say. It is in those times, that humor is paramount, and real is real,
but love, respect and kindness just might make or break your deal!
and this great quote will come in handy:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” —Dr. Seuss
Wonder how many remember?
when a percolator used to
make that wonderful sound in the kitchen;
a kelvonator was in there as well?
a 45 was played on 33 speed
swag lamps ruled the living room
with shag carpets galore?
Still got those “beads” that used to separate the doorways?
Retro baby, think retro!
if you haven’t had the pleasure of
hearing this young man sing
yet… take a listen
to Michael GRIMM cos’ I gotta tell ya…
he is the
old soul music
with my soggy self sitting here
I feel like
Otis Redding is back and I’m sittin on the dock of the bay, with my
my scattered thoughts being tossed in
I await the cruise ship to
tie up on this here dock today.
OMG, that boy can sing his butt off~!
They say: if you are relaxed your blood pressure is low… heaven help me if it goes any lower, I may need the number of
WE WILL NEVER FORGET
Where were you?
Blessings on the winds, dear ones… Dance on the raindrops today…
Our hearts are surrounding those in TX as the fires rage on there, we are with you and wish we could send you some rain….
