Happy New Year 2015!!

2015 is now upon us.. it makes me think back when I went to Woodlake Elementary School and they Liberty Bell (replica I think) came to our school so we could see it, back in 1976! Funny how some things make memories come upon us.
My goal is to get at least 2 posts a month on this blog.

For this one:  I am a Grandmother, yep a Grandmother. I have a beautiful young Grandson named Aiden.  
Kickapooh as I call him, was born on St. Patrick's Day of 2014. I am so in love with this baby! My sweet Bebe!
I am just a happy Grammy.

RED 1: HQ, the Pig has been attacked.

HQ: Repeat RED 1?
RED 1: HQ, the Pig has been attacked, I repeat the Pig has been attacked.

HQ: Rescue the Pig, RED 1, Rescue the Pig.

RED 1: There are snipers everywhere HQ.

Changing of the Guard

I am losing family members. While I know this is the natural order of things, I DO NOT LIKE IT. I am missing having those family members. Even if I didn't see them every day, it was a comfort knowing they were there.

We (my generation of cousins) are now the Old Guard. I don't mind being the old guard, but not at the cost of losing those before me. I loved the stories that were shared, their laughter and smiles. Us kids looking up to those before us. I don't mind getting older, I am really not scared of dying either. Actually, I have a plan to help me go like I want. (That is a story for another day) I am really saddened by them aging and leaving us, leaving a wound that will heal, but will definitely leave a scar. We can't even begin to take their place and I am pretty sure we don't want to.

I Salute those who were the "Old Guard" before us, alive and gone:

Francis (Chicky) Lundy     
Susan Basham                  
Pinky Bishop                                   
Johnny Bishop                  
Taffy Bishop                     
Jerry Taylor                      
Jerry Basham                       
Jack Cornwell
Mike Cornwell
Sharon Ellingson
Jesse Ellingson
Patty Basham
Johnny (Jr) O'Neil
Val Burbank Cornwell
Larry O'Neil

Family and Friends, feel free to add to this list in a comment if you remember names I might have forgetten.

Misty Water Colored Memories
I can't begin to tell you how much it warms my heart, that my mother shared a love of "old" movies with me. I remember the Disney movies that she would take us to see, my brother and I.
Of course their are a bunch of remakes of many of the Disney movies I have seen, but they will never be as good as what I grew up on. I have some of the most wonderful memories of my mother and I watching Lana Turner
and Sandra Dee in Imitation of Life, by the end of it we were both in tears
with boxes of tissure each. I cherish that more than any gift I ever got.
There are so many wonderful old movies out there. A few of my favorites are:
National Velvet
The Aristocats
Darby O'Gill and the Little People
The Original Incredible Journey
Mary Poppins
Swiss Family Robinson
The Ugly Dachshund
So many wonderful childrens movies.
When we got older we enjoyed things like:
The Bad News Bears
The Original Willy Wonka
Charlottes Web
The Original Where the Red Fern Grows
Then of course when they are older please make sure they see
Meet me in St. Louis
The Harvey Girls
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
so many.. so so many wonderful movies that your children will miss
out on. These movies have heart and soul. They are cookie cutter
shoot em up and kill movies. Wonderful stories
with amazing actors and actresses that shouldn't be
Make some of your own wonderful memories with your children
and grandchildren.. snuggled up on the couch, eating popcorn
and just watching something magickal, an era that we will
only get to see on the screen.
Thank you Mother, I love you~

Fabric Whoredom

Fabric Whore
Some things run in us, genetic or hereditary. There is hair color, eye color, personalities.. I believe things like alcholism and such. I also think that things like: collecting things might be inherent. I think my father has a genetic affinity for collecting junk. If there is a garage sale he will find it and buy something. Then he will drag it to my house and then tell me I have way to much shit at my house. I think to myself, "hmmm ~ could any of that crap be yours?" When half of it is! lol

Anyways, I don't know who I would have inherited this from, but I believe I have an affinity for fabric. I am a fabric whore. Is this something that runs in my family? I know my mother could sew clothes and make outfits amazingly well! My grandmother could crochet and draw beautifully. I make quilts, they are alright.. I like them and they keep us warm. But I just have this affliction, I need fabric. More and more fabric. There is never enough. I am always seeing quilt patterns that I want to make so I need fabric for them. I have lots and lots of fabric together for certain quilts I want to make, but I crave more! MORE! The fabric whore comes out in me at JoAnn's and Lori's Pins and Needles and Quilter's Nest.
So, I will embrace my fabric whoriness. I will indulge and gorge my quilters
heart and desires with fabric. Gimme, gimme, gimme. Is there a cure for this? A pill? I guess it could be worse, I could be a tequila whore and my clothes could fall off.

It seems to me that people don't own the things they say and the things they do. If it is a good thing, they are all over it like white on rice, if it is a bad, stupid, dumb ass thing, they try and shine that on. Like "what?" I don't know what you are talking about it.
I just wish that people would own the shit they say and the shit they do~ So I found some pictures and sayings that just tap in to how I feel about this, so here goes...

If you ask me a question, be prepared for an answer you might not like. If you are a true friend you will want the truth.  I WILL tell it to you. 

It amazes me that the people that are the backstabbing dilholes, think they get away with it. They think they can talk shit and trash you and that you will never find out.  I am glad they live in their bubble of delusional brilliance. It makes it more fun because they seem to be oblivious to my sarcastic response... :D

That saying "keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I just as soon, get rid of the enemies and the negative baggage they bring. Maybe they should call them enemas, instead of enemies..  get rid of that shit!

I can relate to this, but it will be my pleasure to be sarcastic and rude if the occasion calls for it!

Then you get the people that don't realize you are being rude and sarcastick because they think you don't know what stink ass, backstabbing turds they are. Oh, but you do.. you do.

I do believe that what you put out, you will get back, times 3. So if you are insecure about yourself, and bad mouth others to make yourself feel better, if you are just mean and get off on treating people like shit, Karma will find you. You won't know when, that makes it awesome~

Just know, I will call you out, and I won't have a problem telling you to your face. I don't need friends like that and I sure as hell don't want them.
