Happy Memorial Week-end Folks!

Sooooooo, today is Saturday, and I got it right this time!! Hehehe.......last weekend, I kinda bypassed Saturday altogether.  If you read back a few posts, you'll see what I mean.

I walked over to chat with my friend and neighbor, and her hubby happened to have his "Harley" sitting outside, so, of course, I just had to take a picture of it.  Not that I get to ride on it, but Oh Boy!; it sure looks it'd be real fun!!  Anyway, see pictures below:

All I can say is WOW! This is a Classic, and they don't make em like this baby anymore! What a sweet ride that would be!  Ehh.......maybe one of these days my hubby will get a 3-wheeler, he keeps talking about it, but I know that's all that it will be is TALK.  We can't afford such an expensive toy. LOL!

In the meantime I have my own sweet ride!  

Isn't she just the prettiest think you ever did see!  Welllll........she can't go quite as fast as the "Harley", but she'll do for now.  At least with my ride, I actually get some exercise, LOL!

Tuesday Trash Day!

Soo........Tuesday Trash Day turned into Wednesday Hump Day, on account of, I didn't get my "Tuesday Trash Day", done on Tuesday, and now it's Wednesday!.........Whoops!!  Just so you know I'm not a crazy broad! crazy Pictures, Images and Photos
Wellllllllll..........Okay, maybe just a little crazy.

I have to admit, I did slip up a while back and put a title for one of my posts as Sunday, when in fact it was Saturday!  Soooooooo, I'm hoping I am not getting early warning signs of Alzheimers.

What can I say, I'm an ole lady.  Shrug Pictures, Images and Photos

The post's title is Trash Day, simply because Tuesday is the day that the garbage people come to dump our trash bin. It's also the day that my husband plays in his "Scrambles" (golf) tournament, not that this has anything to do with Trash!

Well...........the scrambles is held every Tuesday afternoon, and usually doesn't get finished until close to 8PM. The guys play in the scrambles, and then are served a really nice dinner afterward, and then they are awarded prizes, depending upon where they ranked in the tournament.

The hubby has several awards hanging on the walls in this room, called 'the computer room'.  Here are just a few of said awards:

Not sure what organization sponsored this tournament, but as you can see, he won 1st place.  Btw, the picture to the left, is a picture of the hubby's granddaughter, and her mother, whom is the hubby's daughter.  Got that?  I hope so, because I don't plan to repeat it.

This award was actually from the same tournament as the one above, however, this award was for achieving a 'Hole in One'.

The award above is also for a "Hole in One", but it was not from any tournament. This is one he got back in January of 2004, when he was playing at the City Golf Course, "Whispering Pines".

As you know from my previous posts, my husband is a below the knee amputee.  He lost his left leg, just below the knee, and he wears a prosthesis. He was just featured in a news article that caters to Prosthesis Pedorthists', and manufacturers of Prosthetic appliances. As soon as the article comes out, I will post it here.  

Until next time folks!

Monday, know, like the song!

Raise your hand if you like Mondays!!

Only Hermione Granger would like Mondays!  Am I right???   

Her character in the Harry Potter movies, played by "Emma Watson" was portrayed as the very studious and little know it all girl/friend of Harry Potter, along with Ron Weasley, (Rupert Grint), who Hermione develops a kind of love/hate relationship with.

ABC Family channel had the "Harry Potter" movies aired all weekend long, which is what made me think of Hermione, of course.

Sooo, I spent the weekend totally, well, not totally. Actually I spent the weekend trying to redesign my blog.  I think I've got it to the point where I can live with it, but I still might tweak it a bit here and there.  I wish I were a bit more of a tech-head than I am........but as the saying goes, "it is what it is".  So, I make do with what I can do, and the rest will hopefully work itself out.  Sooner or later..........probably mostly later!

In one of my earlier posts I spoke about the TLC channel, and a show called, "Cake Boss". I love watching Buddy and his cohorts making those amazing cakes!  Below are just a few that I thought were pretty spectacular!

 Aren't they just unbelievable!  I can just imagine the amount of work that go into making these. I thought, for a while, about learning how to make fondant, but after watching this show........I decided against it.  It's just a whole lot of work for this ole lady to really mess with.  Also, I've heard from some folks that fondant isn't all that tasty either.  But who knows, I might still try it some day.

OMG! I'm a Bloody Idiot! see what I mean.  Yesterday was bloody Saturday.......and all day I was thinking Sunday!!!  I'm loosing it!  Where is my brain?  Helloooooo brain!  It's me Jeanie calling!!  Damnit!

It's the's gotta be the stress!  What stress......I have no stress.  Umm.....wellllllll, yeah, I guess there is a little bit.  Hubby came home last night, and I just KNEW he'd been drinking alcohol, when his doctors have specifically told him NOT to. The medication he is on could make it very dangerous!  I didn't call him on it, because, of course, it wouldn't have done me any good, nor served any purpose, except for me getting it out of my system!  

Hm?   Maybe that's just what I need to do.  Or...........maybe I just need to forget about it, and act like it never happened. After least he didn't OVER do it.  

Change of subject here, I think it's time to get over myself and just blog.

Sooo, with that in mind, I wanted to chat a bit about a television show that I often watch.....okay, not so much often, as ALL THE TIME!  LOL!!  Whenever it's on, I'm watching it! the way, the name of this show is called, "Say Yes To The Dress".  It's on the TLC channel.  

I love this show. It's sooooooo much fun watching these brides trying on wedding dresses!!  I love this show because, well, I'm a woman, and women love the romance of it, and the dressing up part.  I mean there are some women that get the chance to dress up all the time, and then there are women like myself, who NEVER get that chance.  Yes, I know, I've been married twice.  But with my first marriage, I had to wear a hand-me-down that my sister-in-law got married in.  IT was an AWFUL dress........not that it didn't look okay, it just wasn't MY dress!

I dream of wearing one of those beautiful sparkly gown's.  Heck, I just want to try one on!  Actually.......I want to try on a bunch of them!!  LOL!

This is one of my favorites!! Isn't it just beautiful!!
