Hate to tease you northerners, but it was sunny and mid-80s yesterday here in the Sunny South! I went down to a free outdoor concert put on by "Southern Comfort" (the burbon like drink) in Centienial Park in downtown Atlanta. The last band was awesome. We were all gathered around the stage, and they were ryling up the crowd. Bouncing up and down, singing, hollering, etc. At one point, a young guy beside me bounced a little hard off me, and turned and apologized. I laughed and said "It's all good, no problem man!". Then I looked at him and asked his age...

Oh my, I was getting rowdy in mosh pits in Nashville, TN before the lad was even born! I woke up about 4:00am with leg cramps from carrying on too much, and will be horse for days. Perhaps it is time to retire my "head banger" hat!

Feeling kinda older, but it was a great time, and I guess we all age just 1 day time!!! :o)

You two quack me up. If I say I have three apples you not only say you have four but then make apple sause out of them.

So Rob, are the lights going to be candle powered?

Seattle, the dirt floor houses. Are you suppose to wipe your feet before entering or after leaving?


Dear Duckie,

We only make applesauce as our apples aren't too ripe as just polish and eat them. "But life on the farm, is kinda laid back..."

The prototype light is candle powered! But when we gets the money, the real light will be one of them solar ones. It may be decades before the power company catches our little town on the map. We are so small, it is only on the map 4 days a week.

Now you are showing your city slickerness with the dirt floor comment. It is packed hard as cement from years of use. You sweep the dust out like everyone else does. And no, you don't track muddy feet across the floor. We keep an old scrub brush at the door so you can get it out between your toes.

Lately though, we been living high on the hog. We had a rich uncle in Nashville leave us some money. Ma and Pa put some of that indoor/outdoor grass carpet in the outhouse. They liked it so much, they just ran it into the rest of the house too.

Seems there's always some kind of sign on the door for what folks want you to do coming and going.

And if you do something wrong, you'll find out through the grapevine.

Back in my hometown, we don't have a traffic light, but we have been saving up our money, and we do have the colors picked out!


Hate to brag, but in my hometown we have one paved street, well it's nearly paved all the way to the end of the street.

Almost all the houses have actual flooring. Think only 1 or 2 still have packed earth.

But with all this "modernization" a few have gotten a bit uppity, so everyone likes to talk about them at the coffee clache. Whoa! You should hear them when someone has the audacity to get a new vehicle!

I can relate there are days too when I forget the body doesn't have the rebound ability that it used too. Seems my much younger self used alot of that up doing sports and partying.

Slo,

You ain't got that woman trained yet? You are supposed to break every 4 hours for a little backrub. :o) Or are you leaving her at homebase, as distance makes the heart grow fonder? Hope your life is going well!

Rob

Well, GemiDi, maybe that's cuz you LOOK like Barbara Mandrell's grand-daughter!!!


Uhmmmmm ... is that a compliment, Katiegrl, or do we need to carry this to the "catfight" thread? LoL

Thank you (I think).


Barbara Mandrell is a beautiful woman with an American accent that I identify as southern. So it was simply meant as a compliment.

I was at the beach today walking along the shore, collecting beach glass and taking photos and I ended up three miles up the beach. Then I walked all the way back. Then I picked up a few things at the corner store.

On the way home I noticed the streetcar coming so I waited for it. When it pulled up to the stop, I grabbed the bar to pull myself up onto that high top step, carrying 15 pounds of groceries in my shoulder-bag, and when I got in the operator said, "I'm sorry. I would have lowered the step for you if this was a bus but the streetcars don't have that feature."

I wanted to borrow someone's cane and bonk him on the head with it! It occured to me afterwards that I probably looked a bit wobbly after all that walking all day ... but he made me feel like a granny!


I'm not a granny ...... :(


katiegrl,

*I* am a "nana." TWICE! LoL But I don't feel old at all!!!

Dang, I wish I was a "granny" :o) I have been feeling older for years, but then again, I tend to suffer from weekend warrior syndrome...

Hey Katie, another reason I'm going to really miss my daughter. Presently, when I go to the grocery store the cashier will ask me if I need help with my bags. I just tell him, "No thanks, that's what I've go her for!" lol

It's raining in Seattle, though a balmy 70 degrees.

What makes me feel old is seeing applications and the year he/she was born was the year I graduated....from college. This just gets worse every year! Because I get older!~

I feel like I am old enough to be everyone's mother. Present company excluded, of course. lol





lol I think I need a drink. Let me be more clear, I'm reviewing applications for work and they are all young'uns. I don't know about the rest of you, but 22 looks younger every year. They look like babies to me.




Yes, especially when I don't have any children. I am sure some celebrity, somewhere will now name their child Application. Why not if Apple, Pilot Inspektor, Zowie are acceptable? lol

Lol Rob, are you still hoarse and hobbling?? Sounded like a great time!! Don't "retire your head banger hat" just keep lot's of motrin on hand, and perhaps some throat lozengers! Adventure, and a bit of fun and good times keeps one young at heart! Too bad the body can't keep up with us!


Yes, lots of motrin for the anti-inflamatory, but doing much better. I guess it was mainly a reminder to get back on the exercise routine. Besides my soul wouldn't let me retire the hat even if the body insisted on it! :o)
