I know, I know.
"Where you been? We've been worried sick about-cha!!"
No need to worry. I'm still around:-)

Been keeping myself busy here lately
with work, video games, (I'll give ya a preview on those later on)
and surviving the tornado season.

Take a minute to look how close this guy comes
to not being ok.........

You'd think one would have gobs to say when missing
for a few months at a time but, to tell you the truth folks, I really
ain't got a whole heck of a lot to tell ya.......

The rain is aggravating, days seem shorter than the nights, and
I seem to find myself wanting more sunny days and
nicer temperatures.

I have a few family and friends that have the
time to go fishing and every time I start to plan on going either,
I've got to work in a huge metal warehouse with no windows.
Or......... it mysteriously rains on the days I have off from work.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love my family and friends dearly but,
when I come home and log on to Facebook (more like Faceslap, and you'll see why)
What do they do?
You've got it!!
They post their catch of the day to show all what I'm missing out on!!!

I'm about to Faceblock these Bassturds......

It's May!?!?
Can't believe we're 5months into the year already.
Before we know it July will be here and we'll be
moanin' and groanin' because it's too dang hot
to "go fishing" but, isn't it that the way it usually goes?

Mother's Day is next Sunday!!!
The United States celebrates Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May.
In the 1880s and 1890s there were several attempts to establish a Mother's Day,
but they didn't succeed beyond the local level.

The holiday was created by Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia,
in 1908 as a day to honor one's mother.
Jarvis wanted to accomplish her mother's dream of making
a celebration for all mothers, although the idea didn't take
off until she enlisted the services of wealthy
Philadelphia merchant John Wanamaker.

She kept promoting the holiday until President Woodrow Wilson
made it an official national holiday in 1914.
The holiday eventually became so highly commercialized that many,
including its founder, Anna Jarvis,
considered it a "Hallmark Holiday", i.e. one with an overwhelming commercial purpose.

Jarvis eventually ended up opposing the holiday she had helped to create.
She died in 1948, regretting what had become of her holiday.
In the United States, Mother's Day remains one of the biggest days
for sales of flowers, greeting cards, and the like; it is also the
biggest holiday for long-distance telephone calls.

Don't worry Dad!!
I didn't forget about you!!
(I'll post a video next month for ya)

So, as I sit here and listen to more rain fall from the sky,
I think to myself, isn't about time for a nap??

Yep, it is for me:-)
I know you guys want to hear more
and I'll catch up on this thing in the near future but,
it takes work and dedication to be a Princess.

Be kind to one another and take care of yourselves!!
Thanks for checking in:-)

I'm still kickin'!!!!......

Almost a whole month has gone by since I've last posted!!!!
Here, I'll try and catch you up on the things that have happened.

I guess I'll start back to Thanksgiving Day.
Let's see, what did I do on Thanksgiving??
We had Thanksgiving over here at the castle with
my Brother, Sister-in-law, and Grandma!!
Yummy turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, and all the
fixings that you can only imagine:-)

I didn't get a chance to go to the bonfire the day after
because a change a plans happened.
All was good because in the month of December, I was able to
actually be near one due to the fact the my King wanted to
burn some stuff up.:-)

Still jumping a little ahead of myself,
I'll back up to around the end of
I was able to go over to my neighbor's house
(whom is also a dear friend)
and see that she had already decorated
her house for the Christmas festivities.
She started before Thanksgiving due to the love she has
for the holiday season.
She had two trees put up and I noticed that the she put a top hat on the
top of her tree that sits in the living room.

Now, I thought that that was pretty cool so when I had a chance
to set up the tree in my chambers, I put my fedora hat on top it.

Sitting over there at my friends house, a couple of other friends
were over there too. We talked about this that and the other and played Guitar Hero.
When asked what I had planned on doing for the holiday season,
I simply stated that it was "crunch time" for me and needed to
start on the Christmas shopping and attend to the family get togetherness's.
All shook their heads in agreement and knew what I meant.

The month of December flew by so quickly that I was flying by the seat
of my pants!!!!

I started off the first week by getting my
Christmas shopping done in 2 days.
Being lucky enough to have the majority of items that I've put back over
the coarse of months while working
for the warehouse, I loaded up the cart, grabbed a
few rolls of wrapping paper, tape, Christmas bags, wheeled
it to the front, paid, and bagged it myself.
Of course I went to Wally World for a few gifts too!!!

The weekend rolled around and
we had a family get together in Oklahoma and played Dirty Santa.
It went pretty well.
Nobody had to go home with black eyes, busted lips, or bloody noses.

During the weeks (meaning two before Christmas week) I spent the
majority of the time doing the WW Dance.
Wrapping and Working.
I knew that I wanted to get the wrapping done by the week of
Christmas so I could just sit back, relax, and enjoy.
And I did:-)

During the weeks of the WW Dance, I was blessed with warm wishes of Christmas.
My Boss from gave me a Christmas Bonus, random messages were sent
from friends to my phone, and I had 2 four day weekends
to attend to.

My King had his Birthday on the 19th and was
blessed with wishes and gifts.

Christmas Eve we (Queen, King, Brother, Sister-in-law, and myself) went
and did Christmas over at Granny's house.
Even my Aunts and Uncles attended!!!
After the festivities, we headed on our way
back to the castle where we waited for my Brother and
Sister-in-law to do our midnight Christmas.
Only it didn't happen till 1 am, we decided that we
needed to start doing this a little bit earlier come Christmas Day.

Christmas Day went well for the most part.
Despite the lack of sleep we had.
I was happy to be around family and stay out of everyone's way.
I think I did well.

Me and my King started off Christmas Day
with only a few hours of sleep.
We had to deep-fry the turkey and ham.
As we were deep-frying the ham, (which only takes a few minutes)
we had a surprise visit
from Mother Nature and God.
(So I believe)

First, we got to see a shower of snow flurries while at work.
I was the official lid remover and my King was the hook and crane.
As we were standing on the back porch, a sound came from
the woods that sits behind our castle.
It sounded like thunder coming near to where we were standing.
It scared us both so much that neither of us were able to move from our spots.
We waited to see what happened in hopes that we wouldn't get attacked.

In the seconds that passed us, which seemed like minutes, a haaaugggeee
flock of black birds (Grackles ?) came shooting out of their roosting trees.
There had to be at least 4 to 5ooo of these winged creatures!!!

As they were taking off in mid flight, the sound of their wings sounded like
another thunderous roar.
(My King said it sounded like their afterburners kicked in)

It was totally neat and left us in a state of awe.
Me and my King vowed to never forget what happened
on our Christmas morning of 2010.

This is a picture of what it looked like......

And so, that pretty much sums it up for
what my Christmas Season was like.
Family, Friends, Food, and Fun!!!

As the New Year's Day rolled around, I didn't really do
anything. Watched a movie, talked to my neighbor who was
wondering if I was still alive, and went to bed at my usual time.
I had to work the following day and I was in no mood to work with
a hangover headache or lack of sleep.
All went well.
And come to find out, that if anybody has the familiar smell of alcohol on their breath
where I work at, my Boss will send you home and you will be
MIA for at least a week.
(No, this did not happen to me but it did happen to one of the coworkers)

Ok, Ok, I hear you about the Christmas video.
That's right folks!!!
I made a Christmas video only because I had taken gobs of pictures over the
month of December and my King actually wanted me make one.
His words were
"why don't you make a video? It'll be more interesting for me
to go through your photo's besides having to click on the next button to look
through them all."

So, with the expertise of my King and what to do's, I made one:-)
It's the first video I've ever made with the pictures I've captured throughout
the month of December
and a couple from my family members that they've posted on Facebook.
I gotta say, for being a
beginner, it turned out pretty well.

And with that being said, I'm gonna close this post in
hopes that you'll enjoy my video along with help
of Third Day's song Christmas like a Child.

Enjoy and until next time, take care of yourselves, and thanks for
stopping by:-)

I'm still alive and well!!!

Do you remember the 80's commercial for Lite Bright?
If not, here it is......

Now, that you've watched that video check out what Kevin Rudolf did with his
Lite Bright over the years. He had a little help with Flo Rida.......

Well, seems like I can't update this thing as much as I'd like to but, hey,
at least y'all know that I'm staying busy with myself:-)

Work is starting to pick up with customers and merchandise.
Tis' the season!!!

Speaking of the season, I gotta work the day after Thanksgiving.
I was told that I'd probably won't like it.
Little does the person that told me this know, that I've been through it a few times.

I'll treat it just like it's any other day and let the crazy people have at it. :-)
Somebody has to keep composer around where I work at and I'm just the type
of person that can handle that.
Well, at least I like to think so.

Happy Veterans Day!!!
Thank you to all who have served and are currently serving our great country!!!

Make sure you spread the love today to all the
wonderful, brave service men and women who've fought
and are still fighting for our country!!!
God Bless you all and your families!!

Bonfires are just one of my favorites this time of the year!!!
Looks like I'm getting a chance to sit around one
with a couple of friends after Thanksgiving:-)

Do you see a face in this one??

Well folks, that about does it for this update.
Gotta get ready to watch my episodes for the night.
Until then, take care of yourselves and thanks for stopping by!!! :-)

5 weeks and it's a miracle that I've made it back!!!

A miracle is an unexpected event attributed to divine intervention.
Sometimes an event is also attributed (in part) to a miracle worker, saint, or religious leader.
A miracle is sometimes thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature.
Others suggest that God may work with the laws of nature to perform what people perceive as miracles. Theologians say that, with divine providence, God regularly works through created nature yet is free to work without, above, or against it as well.

A miracle is often considered a fortuitous event: compare with an Act of God.

In casual usage, "miracle" may also refer to any statistically unlikely but beneficial event, (such as surviving a natural disaster), or simply a "wonderful" occurrence, regardless of likelihood, such as a birth.
Other miracles might be: survival of a terminal illness, escaping a life threatening situation or 'beating the odds.'
Some coincidences are perceived to be miracles.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month -
it is the month when people become more educated about the signs of breast cancer, its symptoms, and how to help prevent it.

Out of every seven women, one will develop breast cancer at some time during her lifetime (USA), compared to just one in twenty during the 1960s.

Holly Ford, of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, is asking people to wear pink as a sign of support for breast cancer awareness. She says that by wearing pink you will help create awareness.

It's been 5 weeks since I last posted on this thing and I gotta tell ya
that time does really fly when your not lookin'.
So, I guess I'll sit here and catch y'all up on the invents that have happened.

First, my carriage ride has been fixed. Come to find out that it was the Cadillatic converter
that bit the dust. Oh, and I've managed to to put a new tail on one of the horses.
I've been able to go to a few of the home football games and reconnect with a few familiar
faces while attending that I've not seen in quite a few years.
While at the football games I've noticed that the metal bleachers have gotten colder and
I'm not able to yell like I use to in my younger years without having to pay for it
the next three days.
I really have a nice time seeing the boys play and give them the shout outs that they deserve.

Here's a picture of the field I took at the first home game......

Second, I was able to attend Winfest this year with quite a few friends that yet again,
haven't seen in a few years.
Winfest is a benefit that is held every year in the month of October.
All the proceeds go to the surrounding area to help families that are in need.
I remember going a few years back and it was not what I expected it to be.
I was kinda leery of going this year but, with help of a couple of people that helped set it up
this year they told me it has calmed down quite a bit due to it's "family orientated" atmosphere.

I found it rather relaxing hanging outside with good friends and good people all around.

Here's a picture of the stage and one of the bands......

The first day of Fall came upon me while away from this blog.
The leaves are just now starting to turn.
We've really had a bit of dry summer though and it's really kinda hard to make heads or tails
of which trees have died and which are still alive.

Hopefully, by Halloween we'll start to see a bit of a difference.

Third, I was able to join the Family Reunion this year!!!

Driving through Muskogee, it had some hairy situations.

You see that red truck?
There was a moment when another concrete barrier was on the other side too and here
I am sittin in the back seat, watching this truck, wondering if I was going to see the truck
sway this way or that and watch some sparks fly off the barriers.

I did so well though, not even once did I say "are we there yet" or "I gotta go to the bathroom".

When we got there the tables was being set with a great feast.

There was an auction held too!!!

This is a quilt that my Great Granny made for the auction.

Here's a 1943 picture of the Family Reunion that was put on auction too.

The ride back home was tiring but, when you spend time with family, it's all worth it.

We all had such a good time together that we're planning on getting back together
in December!!
This is why we had the auction so we can rent the room again.

Speaking of December, I've realized that I'll be having a 3 day weekend and a 4 day weekend off
from work.
I'm one happy girl!!!

This about sums it up for the last few weeks and I plan on doing a few more things before
I hop back on here.
Like dressing up for Halloween and doing Christmas Shopping.

I'll try not to wait so long to post anything but, when I get the ball rollin on certain things,
I tend to forget about taking time to sit down and type it all out.

I hope that all is well with you in your neck of the woods and I thank ya
for stopping by. :-)

I made it back safely!!

Hadn't had the best of luck with the vehicles here lately.
You'd think somebody was trying to tell me something like....
"get yourself a younger one."
Thanks Dad!!

The Queen got herself a newer vehicle due to me hurting her 89 Ford Ranger's feelings.
He cried oil and antifreeze all over the parking lot of a little gas station that's a couple of
miles from the castle, I felt so bad that when I went into the gas station the second time,
I asked for a phone book to look up the nearest cavalry to haul it back home.
While it was being unloaded off the trailer,
I could hear the truck singing Poor Poor Pitiful Me by Terri Clark....

Poor Poor Truck:-/

Now, off onto better things......
I had to change the background on this thing, was kinda missing some color from the other
one but, I'll drag the other one back out when fall comes.
I was gonna do something along the lines of Halloween but, I thought it'd be too soon to change
it to that.

Oh, my Birthday?
It went well.:-)
I went to work, got a lot of Happy Birthday's from everybody, came home and shot off
some saved artillery from the 4th of July.

I was so happy the following day!!
Didn't have a hang over, was able to enjoy my day off, and got to wear my Led Zeppelin shirt
that the Queen bought for me!!!

Thanks Mom!!

On Labor Day, I did what any worker would do and went to work.
Wasn't able to go to the pool due to vehicle problems but, I did make use of the

Found out that were I work at we are
closed on Thanksgiving (I think) and Christmas Day.
I was looking at the calendar and
realized that I'm already gonna be off on these two holidays:-)
Unless, the boss want to make changes.
I'm even gonna have a 3 day mini vacation in December if all works out according to plan.
I should be off for New Years too!!

Well, that about does it for the update on my little voyage this past week.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

5 more days?!?........

Hey!! I've made it back!!
Let's see what I can come up with today.

The mostly self-taught 10-year-old started playing guitar at age 3,
and he's obviously devoted much of his short life to his Ozzy obsession - he rehearsed for Ellen's show by running through "Mr Crowley,"
another track off the 1980 album "Blizzard of Ozz."

He's appeared on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," shredded at Connecticut's Gathering of the Vibes festival, and jammed with legendary guitarist Les Paul on a 2008 trip to the U.S.

According to his official bio, he's also a big fan of Metallica, Eric Clapton, and Kiss.
At age 8, Miyazawa was named the youngest professional guitar player on the planet by the "Guinness Book of World Records."

5 more days till what?!?
No way, huh uh, you've got to be kidding.

Yep, it's about that time.
The last year of my 20's has come upon me.
I knew it was gonna happen but, I didn't think that it was gonna happen this fast.

Now, I'm not gonna sit here and get all blurry eyed and have the sniffling fits.
Nope, I'm gonna wait till I'm next year to do all that.


You Know You're Getting Old When...

"Getting a little action" means you don't need to take a laxative.

Adult diapers are actually kind of convenient.

All of your favorite movies are now re-released in color.

At cafeterias, you complain that the gelatin is too tough.

Conversations with people your own age often turn into "dueling ailments."

Everything hurts and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work.

In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

It takes a couple of tries to get over a speed bump.

It takes longer to rest than it did to get tired.

It takes twice as long to look half as good.

It's harder and harder for sexual harassment charges to stick.

Many of your co-workers were born the same year that you got your last promotion.

No one expects you to run into a burning building.

People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"

People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

Someone compliments you on your layered look.... and you're wearing a bikini.

The car that you bought brand new becomes an antique.

The clothes you've put away until they come back in style... come back in style.

The end of your tie doesn't come anywhere near the top of your pants.

The little gray-haired lady you help across the street is your wife.

The pharmacist has become you new best friend.

The twinkle in your eye is only the reflection of the sun on your bifocals.

There's nothing left to learn the hard way.

Things you buy now won't wear out.

When getting lucky means you find your car in the parking lot.

When happy hour is a nap.

When tying one on means fastening your MedicAlert bracelet.

When you are cautioned to slow down by your doctor instead of the police.

When you don't care where your wife goes, just so you don't have to go along.

When you have a choice of two temptations and you choose the one that will get you home earlier.

When you realize that caution is the only thing you care to exercise.

When you step off a curb and look down one more time to make sure that the street is still there.

When you stop buying green bananas.

When you wake up with that morning-after feeling, and you didn't do anything the night before.

When you were in school there was no history class!

When your birth certificate says expired on it.

When you're told to act your own age, and you die.

You and your teeth don't sleep together.

You are 17 around the neck, 42 around the waist, 96 around the golf course.

You are proud of your lawn mower.

You begin every other sentence with, "Nowadays..."


A lady is throwing a party
for her granddaughter, and had gone all out..... a caterer, band, and a hired clown.
Just before the party started, two bums showed up looking for a handout.
Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman told them that she would give them a meal if they will help chop some wood for her out back.
Gratefully, they headed to the rear of the house.

The guests arrived, and all was going well with the children having a wonderful time.
But the clown hadn't shown up.
After a half and hour, the clown finally called to report that he was stuck in traffic, and would probably not make the party at all.

The woman was very disappointed and unsuccessfully tried to entertain the children herself.
She happened to look out the window and saw one of the bums doing cartwheels across the lawn. She watched in awe as he swung from tree branches, did mid-air flips, and leaped high in the air.

She spoke to the other bum and said,
"What your friend is doing is absolutely marvelous.
I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party?
I would pay him $50!"

The other bum says, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him.

That about does it for right now folks.
Gotta get rested up for next week.

Thanks for stopping by:-)

Well, we'll see how this color works on the eye's.
As you can tell, it's been 2 weeks since I last posted something on
here. You could say that I've been rather busy
with work an all. I managed to make it to my Brother's wedding, dump the water
outta the pool, (along with the help of my Queen) Thanks Mom!!!
Got a yellow sticker for the ride, managed to go swimming we're they have a few dragon
tails to slide on, and not to mention, forget my King and Queen's anniversary right
along with them.
They've been together for 31 years!!!
Yay!! Congratulations you two!!!

Now that the pools are about to close due to the beginning of school days and
Labor Day just around the corner, here's just a couple you might want
to splash around in.......

Bilila Lodge Kempinski opened in 2009 in Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. The property features 74 guest rooms and suites, including the presidential villa (pictured) with its own infinity pool overlooking a wildlife watering hole. All rooms overlook the Serengeti plains, allowing guests to observe wild game from their private sun deck.

Le Méridien Bora Bora, in French Polynesia, is on the southern point of Motu Piti Aau, a six-mile-long island on a coral reef. The hotel has 99 bungalows, including four lagoon bungalows, 14 beach bungalows and 81 over-water bungalows with glass flooring. Recent renovations added a new infinity pool beneath the Miki Miki bar. The pool is more than 2,000 square feet and has a Jacuzzi, waterfall and deck. The pool overlooks Otemanu Mountain and a lagoon containing more than 100 species, including the endangered hawksbill turtle.

When you do the breaststroke in the main infinity pool at Ubud Hanging Gardens in Bali, you look up at a jungle filled with monkeys, butterflies and exotic birds. You will also have the perfect view of a Balinese temple among the trees. For a special treat, book a room in one of the 38 pool villas, and you’ll have your own private infinity pool a few steps from your dwelling.

The Gansevoort Turks + Caicos, a 91-room resort, has an open-air lobby that overlooks a 7,000-square-foot infinity pool with a view of Grace Bay. The pool has four floating islands with umbrellas and lounge chairs that must be reserved in advance. The pool staff is standing by to bring you refreshments. The resort also features yoga and wellness classes, a fitness center and spa, snorkeling equipment, kayaks and Hobie Wave beach catamarans.

The Burj Al Arab, a hotel designed to resemble a mammoth sailboat, sits perched on the Dubai coastline. For an exquisite view of the Persian Gulf, guests can visit the infinity pool on the 18th floor of the hotel in the Assawan Spa & Health Club. If it’s luxury you seek, check into the spa for a caviar facial or body scrub.

Hmmm, I think I'll go swimming today if the weather will let me.
We've got a 20% chance of rain.
Probably won't see a drop of it but, I've been known to be wrong a few times.

Did you see the cub who got his head stuck in a jar???

OCALA, Fla. – A black bear cub in Florida affectionately known as "Jar head" can finally enjoy a good meal.

A clear plastic container was removed from the 6-month-old cub's head after being stuck for at least 10 days. The cub poked its head into the jar when digging through trash in a neighborhood in central Florida.

Biologists say the cub was days away from death because the jar made it impossible to eat or drink. The team had to tranquilize the mother bear and then grab the cub to remove the jar from the bear's head.

The subdued mother was then put in a trap and the cubs followed. After she awoke and nursed the cubs, the bears were moved to a less populated area nearby.

10 days his head was stuck in a jar.
Wonder if Pooh Bear is related to him.

Let's see what else I can manage to dig up here.......

Post adapted its process for enclosing food in foil to keep it fresh without spoiling—first used for dog food—to its new toaster-prepared breakfast food. Intended to complement its cold cereals, Post announced its new product in 1963 to the press, giving them the name "Country Squares".

Originally not frosted when first introduced in 1964, it was later proved that frosting could survive the toaster, and the first frosted Pop-Tarts were officially released in 1967. The first Pop-Tarts came out in four different flavors: strawberry, blueberry, brown sugar cinnamon, and apple currant. Today, there are a wide variety of Pop-Tart flavors, including Chocolate Chip, S'mores, Raspberry, French Toast and Ginger Bread.

Pop-Tarts are Kellogg's most popular brand to date in the United States, with millions of Pop-Tarts sold each year. They are distributed mainly in the United States, but also in Canada. They can also be found in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Pop-Tarts were discontinued in Australia in 2005 and are now found only in import stores.

Used as dog food????

I guess that's why Mom would feed them to me and brother.
(Kinda along the lines of a dog biscuit.)

That about does it folks. Been awake for awhile now and managed to drink a couple
cups of coffee, eat S'more pop-tarts, and make myself tired.

Until then, take care of yourselves, stay hydrated, and enjoy your Sunday!!!
