Welcome To The Party!

Hullo, Officer Wright! I didn't realize you'd linked me. Well, I've returned the favor. Hope you can deal with my views, lol.

On Crotchfruit And Loindroppings

Birth control and abortion,(no matter how ugly it is), must stay legal. After all who wants even a chance of being related to these two:

A Few Angry Thoughts

To Congress in regards to the Wall Street/ Banking bailout fiasco:

Make the guys who ruined these companies give every "bonus" they were given back to the company. Take back every penny from their salaries and put it back into the pension funds that have been decimated. If the money isn't in their bank accounts, make them sell their multiple houses, sell the jewelry they've given their wives,(and mistresses), any large deposits made to their children's bank accounts and NEVER let them hold a position of power OR consult for ANY company on Wall Street or in banking.

Also, Republican "leaders": Pull your heads out of your butts and realize that we are in this mess because of a lack of oversight and deregulation. If you set the fox to guard the hen house inside the hen house, don't get your undies in a bunch when the eggs run low and pretend to care when your family goes hungry.

Hi There, World!

Wow, I never thought that anyone in Abu Dhabi, UAE; Liepaja, Latvia; or Bucharest, Romania, would show up at my blog! Hello to you and everyone else. I hope you've had a chuckle or two and will come back to say hello and leave a comment.

I don't think I have a very exciting life, but it's mine and I like it. At least most of the time I do. The funerals I've been to this year were a low point. My kids make me laugh, and drive me crazy. I am a fixture in the office at their schools making sure they get what they need. I'm close to my parents, love my brother, and wonder about my sister. (There's always one in the family that you're never quite sure where they hatched from.)

I'm interested in hearing as many voices that are willing to post. I keep all comments - even the ones I don't agree with. If you want my opinion on something send me an email, and I'll try to do a post on it.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I like What She Has To Say

I found this blog and have been reading the archives. I am THOROUGHLY enjoying reading her.

Especially this post:

Decisions, Decisions

I love cooking, and cooking shows. I also get a big kick out of Tony Bourdain tearing certain "chefs" up one side and down the next. His show 'No Reservations" is a blast. He's eaten things I wouldn't go near, but there have also been several that I'd like to try.

I also love Rodeo, especially bull riding. Believe me, if it's on the tube, I will find it.

So imagine my conundrum this morning when bull riding and Tony were on at the same time! I was lucky, though. Tony was repeat. Bring on the bulls!!!!

Comments To Ads

Woman on commercial: "You know that song 'Time in A Bottle'? Well, I've got it."

Me at tv: "I've got thyme in a bottle, too, twit. It's in my spice cabinet!"

Snake on floor, laughing his butt off. Just another night at home...

Laugh Time

We were out with Moose, (Snake was elsewhere), and he said he was hungry. We were getting there, but you know how it is when you're not really hungry, and we didn't know what we wanted.

I asked Moose, "What do you want: Japanese, Chinese, American?"

He looked me in the eye and said, "I don't know, maybe gibberish?"

Almost My Favorite Plane

This is a SICK plane! I waited for the demo of the Raptor during the air show we were just at quite impatiently. And when they fired up the engines, I have no idea what was going on in front of me, because at that point I didn't give a shit. I also stood on the benches,(and I don't do that normally). This plane is AMAZING!!!! Enjoy the video

My favorite plane is still the U2 - I watched it circle around and around, climbing higher and higher for half an hour with a sleeping kid on my lap at one show. I was waiting to see it disappear from sight, but missed it when I had to turn my head to repeat myself. Someday I hope to get a second chance.

We're Still Here...Sort Of

Our internet is having problems, so I'm using my folks computer for this.

Sgt. Starzyk's memorial was yesterday.

It was moving, at times funny, and absolutely heartbreaking when his wife's sobs could be heard throughout the pavilion.

This was the first police funeral/memorial I've been to, and I hope I never have to go to one for any Officer I know.

For the first time since Smith started working, I've worried when he's walked out the door. In the last 5 days I've lost 10 pounds and been running on nerves, because I'm not sleeping much either. It's affected Snake, too. He's been giving more hugs than usual. Moose doesn't seem to have noticed, and to be honest I've turned off the news when it's rolled around to this story.

A flag is no replacement for a husband or wife, or mom or dad. I never want one. You hear me Smith?

Quotes and Frustration

-"Robbing a police station is like dating OJ Simpson, it's just something you don't do." Unknown

-"Wars against nations are fought to change maps; wars against poverty are fought to map change." - Muhammad Ali

-"Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity." Unknown

-"Mmm, grahlic, gorlious grahlic." Moose, passing through thekitchen while dinner is being cooked.

-Here's an odd question: Why is sex such a hot button topic and people get all upset about sex ed in schools, but it's alright for Mike Rowe to basically "fist" a cow on national tv in a time slot that can be seen by kids?

-I really want to get back to the gym. But every time I start up again, something comes up or I get hurt, and I'm getting really discouraged. It's kind of like why should I try when I manage to get one day in and something goes wrong. And that's sad, because I like going to the gym and feel guilty about us paying for the membership and not going. It's very frustrating.
