The other night TNT and I were watching TV in the basement and I glanced at him. Then I really looked at him and thought that’s my husband. How can I be old enough to be married? It seems like yesterday I was a 15 year old kid going to the movies with my first boyfriend. How can I be almost 34 years old already? I don’t know maybe I’m the only one who looks at things like this, but I honestly can not believe how fast the years go. When I was in HS it seemed forever until we’d get to summer break and now the whole year flies by. It’s already December 10th. I could have sworn I was just planting my garden. I don’t like this at all! TIME SLOW DOWN PLEASE!
It was a pretty hectic week. *The temperature went way down. I understand why people move to Arizona for the winter. *I love my mom and step-dad so very much! *Molly hiding from the cold temps on Saturday. *Woke up Sunday to 3″ of snow covering the countryside.
Picture of the week is one my sister took of her cat Tipsy getting caught in the act. Him and Sophers are loving the Christmas tree. She finds ornaments all over the house! I had to have a little fun with the picture too!

Four or more years ago this text message was roaming around. My sister received it and played the audio for me. It was freaking funny and we’d laugh until we cried. In our minds we had a transgender person saying this.
Mildred got a new phone and the text was lost forever. Sometimes I’d call Mildred up and leave a message saying the things the he/she said in the video. On Thanksgiving we were at our parents house and we started saying, Hey gurl this is MaryAnn, how ya duurin. Now Mildy and I have both searched the internet numerous times to find this gem of a video. But FINALLY Mildred found it. Just typed in $1 douche bags from Kroger. I’m sure you can just hear the eruption of laughter when Mildy nonchalantly handed me her phone and said here. I swear it gets better every time I hear it.
I’m going to guess this was Christmas of ’84. That’s my Grandma and I with little Mildred. I sure miss this pretty lady! Almost 3 years after her death I still find myself picking up my phone to call her every Wednesday. Sometimes life isn’t fair.
Yes I’m going to do a post on Paul Walker. He’s the first actor that I was a true fan of that has died. He came into my life when I was a Senior in High School with Varsity Blues & She’s All That. But completely blew me away in Joyride. That is my favorite movie he’s been in. Sure, Fast and the Furious movies were huge hits and good movies, but early PW work is my favorite.
My sister and I were talking about him not too long ago about how he just gets better looking with age. Adam Levine sexiest man alive? PLEASE! Paul Walker hands down. I’d even put him right therewith Brad Pitt in Brad’s prime. Okay I’m sure some will disagree, but PW was all that! No pun meant there! LOL
I use to watch Paul on a National Geographic show called “Expedition Great White.” It follows a crew of researchers who capture and tag great white sharks with GPS monitors. They then track the animals to see their migration through the ocean. I first heard about it because it was advertised that Paul Walker was on the show. Let me tell you if you didn’t know Paul was famous you wouldn’t have known. He was just another deckhand on their boat. He had a job to do and that’s exactly what he did. He had very little camera time, but you could tell he was loving every minute of his job. It wasn’t about him, but about the research and the sharks. Even though his camera time was slim you couldn’t miss those striking blue eyes and million dollar smile.
I have read a lot about what his friends have said these past few days and they all seem to say the same thing, “He was just a normal everyday guy.” None of us ever know the real people that these actors/actress/singers are so it’s nice to see that there are real people in the crazy world of Hollywood.
Okay I’m done now, but I just wanted to get that out there that one of my favorite actors probably really was a good guy!
*My dad sent me flowers on Wednesday since we wouldn’t be able to spend Thanksgiving together. *TNT & his dad rent land from some people who live in Louisiana & Mississippi. Each year the landlords send the MIL and I 3 pounds of fresh pecans. *Even though it is hard not to eat them all right out of the bag I made a pecan pie with low sugar. *Thursday it was time to gather at my mom’s house. *My mom sure has purdy gurls. *Friday TNT and I headed down to the lake. It was in the 40′s, but the sun was warm. *TNT, the FIL and I removed all those rocks that you see in this picture. *The MIL and Molly walked along the beach and looked for treasures. *TNT on his tractor/backhoe. A lot of the rocks were so big that he’d just dig a large hole and push the rock into it.
*Laying on the dock in winter doesn’t have the same effect as during the summer. *Molly and I chillin’ in the cabin. *Saturday morning I took Molly for a walk. The lake is very low right now so we were able to explore new areas. *We walked about 2 miles. *TNT beating up the nephew. *Molly & I watching the Booce game. (I was sitting out this round). *Molly and cousin Taylor hanging out in the cabin. *German choc pie. OMG! *Did you all know Tails has a twin? This is my mom’s cat Fuzzy. She shaves him otherwise him and Tails would be identical.
This is my Grandpa on my mom’s side. He passed away in 1985 after a long battle with cancer. He left my Grandma a young widow at 55. When he was going through treatments the doctors wanted him to get exercise so he’d walk down the country road to our farm (a mile west of his farm). He’d come for coffee and tease me he’d go fishing in our fish tank. He was pretty fond of me and would sit on his porch and watch while I put on a radio (rodeo) for him.
