Packing from Lucky's:
Bag 1: Dreft (I can understand this one because it is detergent)
Bag 2: Foil pans
Bag 3: Eggs
Bag 4: 2 small bags of Butterfinger Candy Bars
Bag 5: cake mix and Pam
Bag 6: 2 small boxes Kung Fu Chicken eggrolls
Bag 7: Cool Whip, Sweetened Condensed Milk, and jar of ice cream caramel topping
Now, let me point out that Bag 7 was packed by another bagger because I had forgotten some items and had to go back.
Here is how it should have been done.
Bag 1: Dreft (still give them that one)
Bag 2: Foil pans, cake mix and pam
Bag 3: Butterfingers, then egg rolls then eggs on top
Bag 4: Same as bag 7
That would have cut the plastic waste by 42.86% I need a life!

Here is proof positive...look at the speedometer! It is reading 0 miles per hour. Just noticed that I should probably get gas too. I didn't even look at the level this morning after driving back to Huntsville. Isn't the sun reflecting of the 18 wheeler lovely?

When Christmas time comes I will have to show you the kitty cat nativity scene I also ordered....they are all cats, and the baby Jesus is a kitten! (I know you think I am insane)

So I didn't really think about me acquiring any of them after that. Rachel and I would just enjoy them in the fall when they bloomed at that house. We called them Dr. Suess flowers because of their unique shape. They have a stalk about 18" high and then these beautiful "spider" looking blooms.
Then out of the blue a couple of years later mom called and said..."I have you some spider lily bulbs. I got them from my friend." So now we have the funny "Dr. Suess" flowers for a few weeks in the fall at our house! Thanks Mom.
....and Beth is a huge Matt Kenseth fan (Nascar driver for those of you who aren't cool) so she paid homage to him with this pumpkin

(OK - enough of that - I bet Brittney is having a melt down. Truth be known, I did work hard this weekend, but not carving pumpkins....I was babysitting and because of circumstances beyond anyone's control I did not return from Birmingham until the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Carving party was drawing to an end. Brittney (Jenfer's daughter) was kind enough to carve this lovely Frankenstein pumpkin for me. And my daughter carved me the bat below.)
Cute Cat, spider, Rachel's first attempt (looks like an alien kitty - Love), and the Grim Reeper. The Grim Reeper is Tim's, but I can't remember who carved it for him. I know Adrian carved him the tree, but I don't have a picture of that one...it was real kool.
P.S. Happy Halloweeny!P.S.S. I finally figured how to upload pictures and be able to write between them. It is called the "UPLOAD ANOTHER IMAGE" button.....can't believe it only took me 3 months to figure that one out!

Jimmy: So you made it back from Toys R Us?
Jimmy: did you find something you liked?
LL: yeah, something Rachel had....a book called "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See" Rachel loved that book and had a brown bear made out of resin that she carried around for about a year and a half so I found a resin bear too...
Jimmy: Ok, well good
LL: .....and a puzzle that I think she will really be able to work, and a movie "Curious George Comes to America" and a Disney sing-a-long....
Jimmy: Good gracious...for what, Christmas?
(He doesn't know I already had Garfields Halloween movie and a little people farm girl on a tractor with a cow at home.)
Can't wait to tell stories of the weekend...It is also the 2nd annual Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party!
So, at 10:30 Tuesday night I was outside wrapping coat hangers through the handles of the gates to keep my love locked up!
LL: Did you go to my blog yesterday?
M: No, I never go anymore, quit going after that stupid story about Pam's birthday.
LL: Well, you should.
M: Why would I, you never write anything about me.
LL: I have too, you were in the picture of Rachel's go to college party....
M: Yeah, one meesley picture,
LL: ...and when we were at lunch and saw Pam...
M: Yeah, yeah, big deal
LL: ...and plus, Mickey the blog is not about you!
I helped her to the restroom while I was there...and scared her by saying I was going to put that 15 minute show on my blog....but, being a good friend I won't. (And I won't mention her pretty stockings, with the hole in the toe either!)

Anyway, back to the party....I asked BJ if she and Tami wanted to go for a walk. They did so we left, rounded the corner and there was the COLOSSEUM....LIKE IN ROME! I started to show them around since I had been there before. We realized we should get back to the party. We pulled up and there were a bunch of people we didn't know walking out with big garbage bags full of stuff. I jump out of the car, approach the biggest, burliest looking man I have ever seen and asked what he thought he was doing. Well, he then pulled a gun, proceeded to make us kneel on the street, and scared the crap out of us. Then a nasty woman was walking around us telling us to take off our bras.....I couldn't figure this one out. Then it dawned on me that we could make a weapon out of the underwire! Well, i just happend to have on two bras that night, so I only took off one and saved the other to make a weapon. I was so proud of myself.....
.....then I woke up!

The titles of both works refer to a spectacular occurrence of the Leonid meteor shower that was observed in Alabama on November 12-13, 1833. As reported by the Florence Gazette: "[There were] thousands of luminous bodies shooting across the firmament in every direction. There was little wind and not a trace of clouds, and the meteors succeeded each other in quick succession."
Sounds pretty spectacular to me.
Love, love, love
Have a great weekend!

Here is my pretty princess on the hood of my car last night.....so what would her name be right now? That's right Salibu (Sally on the Malibu). Just a post to let you know I am going to Boston on business. Won't be back until Wednesday evening. Will try to post from there, but not sure if I will have time.
Oh, and Boo made a 97 on her Math exam! Yea! Proud, proud, proud. And she survived the evil, nasty, Art Mid-term. No grade there yet.

Another thing that is strange is that Pam didn't want to believe that Clay Aiken was gay! She was so in denial. I guess she does not have a choice now but to accept it and move on! Poor Pam.
P.S. Ya'll say a prayer for Rayray....she is having a huge Art midterm this afternoon.
