Not flashing back too far today...remember these?

They showed up in my mail box in December 2009.  We still have no idea who left them.  If you have any information on the shotglasses above, please contact us at, or leave a comment in the comment section.

Thank you.

And Happy Friday!

P.S.  Huge shout out to AndyRandy for joining us at the Hard Dock last night to watch Gray Black and White.  Always have lots of laughs and fun with you!  The boys and I really appreciated it!

~  The average worker honey bee produces 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.

~  The first film character to be a finalist for Time magazine's Man of the Year was E.T. in 1982.  He lost out to "the computer," which was named Machine of the Year.

~  President Thomas Jefferson introduced french fries to the U.S., calling them "potatoes fried in the French manner."  He was criticized by John Adams for "putting on airs by serving such novelties" at an 1802 White House dinner.

~  In the 1976 hit song "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," singer Paul Simon lists only 7 ways.

~  The last cigarette advertised on American television was Virginia Slims, on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, on January 1, 1971, at 11:59 p.m. - one minute before a federal ban on cigarette advertising on radio and TV took effect.


I don't want to admit this, but I am addicted to watching "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."  I know it is bad, and I am very ashamed.  But, even though I get angry with myself while watching, I just can't make myself change the channel.  It seems to be pulling everyone in.  Like watching a train want to look away, but you just can't.  Last night TCW, Rayray, Washaway and I were glued to the set.

Funny quotes from last night:

Everybody's a little gay.

I wish I had extra fingers so I could grab more cheeseballs.

That baby came on the biscuit express.

I got a damn gnat on me.

I am so excited to meet Kaitlyn I could just piss myself.

(All of these from a 5 year old)

Here are some more quotes from previous shows.  I know you don't want to read these, but I bet you just can't stop!

All that vajiggle jaggle is not beautimus. - Mama, judging the locals.

I likes to get in the mud because I like to get dirty like a pig. - Honey Boo Boo on one of her hobbies.

We came. We conquered. We done what needed to be done. - Mama on her family.

My mother has told me in the past that if you fart 12-15 times a day you can lose a little weight, so I think I'll lose a lot of weight because I'm going to fart a lot. - Chubbs on dieting.

My mama weighs the most in my family because she's fat. Truth. - Honey Boo Boo, stating the obvious.

I'll stop passing gas when I'm dead. - Pumpkin just being Pumpkin.

No one can be proper and etiquettely all the time. - Mama, addressing critics.

It's called a biscuit because it looks like a biscuit and it opens up. - Mama explaining a nickname for her private part and... oh God, we're gonna be sick...

Had a wonderful, relaxing weekend.

Friday night was spent catching up with Rayray.  We realized we had not seen each other since Tuesday evening because of her crazy school schedule last week.

Saturday was filled with football, good friends, and food.  TCW and Jenfer came over to watch the Auburn/LSU game.  I made French Dip and Jenfer brought the BEST BROWNIES EVER!  So proud of the way the Auburn Tigers played.

Sunday, just a lazy day watching pro football with Rayray, Washaway, and Killer.  Rayray cooked the most wonderful Sunday Dinner for us...ham, pineapple casserole, green beans, and rolls.  TCW came down with mashed potatoes and sweet tea!

I so love relaxing weekends!

Thought of the Day:  If we could recycle cigarette butts, we would be rich!

Another great year at Riverfest!  Good food, great friends, wonderful weather, alcoholic beverages!  Who could ask for anything more?  I had a wonderful time this year both Friday and Saturday night.  Love hanging with my favorite BBQ team - Lil bit o smoke!

There was also great music!  Btut and PW got a back stage pass to meet and greet Lee Brice!

And Friday night was packed with his fans waiting to watch him perform! 

PW was so excited to hear Lee Brice, much less meet him!  She had to watch him perform standing on the back of the cart so she could see!  

Mrs. BigDawes and TCW hard at work...and who is that sitting, I am sure offering supervision?  None other than our own BTUT!  (lol)

Now, lets see how many of you were paying attention Friday night....

Did anyone, other then me and Mr. BigDawes, see Married get her spot hit by a plate of fried potatoes?

I have great friends!  Love!

Leave it up to Btut to stumble across some great pics from our yesteryears!  Above is Btut, me and VJ at a birthday tea for VJ.  It must have been her 23rd or 34th bday because...

...Baby Rayray and Vickilou were there too!  They had their own tea party.  Look at my cute Boo Boo Kitty!  (short hair)

And check out this gem!  JW, Btut, me and CW at our senior picnic!  I can not believe that was 25 years ago! Did you know that the summer of 1987 was known as the "Summer of the White Shorts?"  Love, love, love the men short shorts!  What should we call about Daisy Lukes!

Two of my favorite people in the world!  TCW and Btut circa 1984!  Btut be rocking the long hair!

Saved the best (maybe not) for last!  Btut, me and SHRL...and no, I am not exposing my breasts...but I am not really sure what I was doing!

Great to rehash fond memories with good friends!  Let's make some new memories this weekend at Riverfest!

Go team LBOS!

Football season started on the weekend we made our infamous trip to Tunica.  Rayray and Wash and their friends partied at Hee Haw on Saturday.  She made a lot of food and took it over there.  One thing she made was cupcakes. 

When I arrived home, I noticed the muffin tins on the kitchen table.  They were new, non-stick tins, I figured she bought for the occasion.  I also noticed that they appeared to have been sprayed down with Pam, because it had hardened and turned brown while in the know, ruined.  I also noticed there was a box of paper liners for baking the cupcakes.  The next day while conversing I finally had to ask...

LL:  Did you bake your cupcakes in paper liners?
RR:  Yes.
LL:  Where did the muffin tins come from?
RR:  I bought them at Food World.
LL:  Did you spray them with Pam?
RR:  (grinning sheepishly)  Yes.  I wasn't supposed to was I.
LL:  No, not if you baked them in liners, and also no because that is a non-stick pan.
RR:  I didn't know!  I was just following directions.
LL:  You're pretty!

~  The US Government collected $15.5 million form Great Britain for damage done to Northern merchant vessels caused by confederate ships built in England during the Civil War.  (or War of Northern Aggression as my Grandma called it)

~  The most common sports mascots of US colleges and universities are the eagle, followed by the tiger and the bulldog.  (pictured War Eagle VI, 2005)

~  Jackie Gleason's signature phrase, "And away we go," is etched into the marble steps that lead to his grave.

~  The comic strip "Garfield" was born in 1978 after its creator failed to syndicate his first cartoon series, "Gnorm Gnat."  Jim Davis hit the big time when he switched rrom gnat to cat.  Gnorm appeared in only one publication, "The Pendleton Times" in Pendleton, Indiana.

~  Czech-born National Hockey League sharpshooter Jaromir Jagr picked the number 68 for his team jersey because he wanted to commemorate 1968, the year his homeland revolted against Soviet Communist rule and the year his grandfather died while jailed as a political prisoner.

I just had to share was on John Boy and Billy this morning.  Around 8:45 they take requests to hear things from shows in the past.  They replayed this morning!  I laughed until I cried!

The Weenie Whacker Song(To the tune of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight")
In the bedroom...the quiet bedroom
The Bobbitt sleeps tonight...
In the kitchen...the downstairs kitchen
Loraina grabs her knife...

Weenie wacker weenie wacker
Weenie wacker weenie wacker

Slashed his pee pee...his tiny pee pee
It left a nasty scar
Stuck his rocket into her pocket
And drove off in the car...

(repeat chorus)

Out the window...the Nissan window
She threw his shuttlecock
Then the cops came and found the unit
And outlined it with chalk...

(repeat chorus until sent to your room)

In the cooler...the Playmate cooler
They packed it up real tight
the doctor patched it...and reattached it
It still don't work quite right...

(repeat chorus until spanked)

Well, we survived....barely!  Had a great time in Tunica with TCW, Wino Bill, BTut, Triple T and Big D.  We let all our inhibitions go (beware world), and let our hairs down.  This was evidenced when BTut  asked this guy if she could take a picture of his jeans!  That was after she followed him around the penny slots trying to take it!  This occurred around 1:00 am on our first night...and it only got better from there.

Next time we go I am thinking of hiring a stenographer to keep up with all the funny things we say!  But, lucky you, we were able to write some of them down!  Try to guess who said what...

"Meatloaf (music group) at the Horseshoe."
"I ain't never eat at the Horseshoe."

"Y'all need to talk about that in your room."

"I liked sliced pickles better than spears.  There's more pickle to crunch ratio." (fried pickles)

"Y'all are bitches."

"You want a peanut?"
"No.  I just ate something out of my teeth from last night."

"BTut was so drunk she had half moon eyes."

"How long they serve breakfast?"
"Till lunch."

"Where you is?"

"Meatloaf!" (x 40)

"Thank you Willie (dealer).  May I have another?"

"I just laughed so hard I farted."

"Why you got to take a tone on me?"

"These are the best bugles I have ever had!"

"I can't tell because y'all people age well." (most politically incorrect statement of the weekend)
"There's my girl!"

"Tamiland is a happy place."
"It scares me."


"This is me getting in the shower."  (as I remain sitting on the bed)

"Man, there are some disgusting people here." 

"I'm glad we stopped laughing."

"Poker and a floor show."  ( x 4 different ways of writing the same thing)

"OK, I am drunk."

"Will y'all pack our shit while we go eat?"

"I am not above kicking an old man out."

"Will you dress me?"

"I don't know where he is going.  I am the one who let Chris look at my titties."

"Doesn't that make you dizzy?"
"No.  I don't have vertigo, I am just drunk most of the time."

"I wouldn't change anything... except that woman's outfit."

....and saving the best for last....

"People who know us are lucky."
