Us girls got our creative groove on last Friday night.  L BigDawes, Btut, Lisa TutB and myself went to a painting class to raise for Relay for Life.  We painted "Birds on a Wire." 

It was a hoot...literally!

Here they and trying to get our backgrounds to dry so we can continue with the creative process.  And, yes, that is my glass of wine in front of my painting that Lisa TutB is so graciously fanning for me!  Go TutB!

And the finished products!  We were all pleased with our paintings...I think is is really neat how they are very similar, but also reflect our individuality.  I will definitely go to another class.

Us being funny...the caption of the picture is "That is supposed to be what?!?!?"

Did you even notice that we had turned our pictures upside down?  We're funny like that.

Quotes of the night:

~  "Teacher!  Lois' brush is not in the water!"
~  "Beth's done got paint all over her edge."
~  "SHHHH!  I am trying to listen."
~  "Sausage Balls!  I didn't see any sausage balls."
~  "Everybody is going to think mine is the best."
~  "Her wire is too thin...I hate her."
~  "Teacher.  Lois is still painting!"
~  "You're the one who mad me so mean."
~  "Yes, let me sit between you.  Then I can turn to her and talk about you, or I can turn to you and talk about her."
~  "Yep.  Bird going there."
~  "Y'all are all going to hell."
~  "You put ice in your red wine...redneck."  "Well hell, hers is a screw top!"
~  "We can't have your reception can't serve alcohol."
~  "Screw Vegas....Take me to Tunaca!"  "LET ME GET MY LIPS READY!!!!"

        Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories to eat a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with.

...well, not everyone, just anybody coming over the bridge around 5:45 tonight.  And, really, I don't owe you an apology...the ambulance driver that ran into the back of my Malibu does!  Yes, I was sitting at the red light about 4 cars back from the light (talking on the phone to TCW - but no one needs to know that).  The ambulance driver said he thought he saw me going and just plowed into the back of me.  It jarred me so hard, I thought someone had plowed into the back of him and I had plowed into the back of the car in front of me.  But apparently I didn't touch the car in front, because they just pulled off when the light changed. 

He got out and apologized over and over.  I actually felt sorry for him.  I really felt sorry for his transport patient.  After the popo got there we moved over into the Holiday Inn parking lot.  My statement was to the point - "I was stopped at the red light after crossing the Tennessee River bridge, and an ambulance ran into the back of me." 

The EMT supervisor who arrived soon after told Scott that another ambulance was coming to get his transport " 'cause we got to take a little trip to the hospital."  Poor fellow, I guess he was going to have to pee in a cup.

My car is fine, just need a new bumper...but I want one of those fancy bumpers!  You know, the one that comes with 4 new tires!

Just kidding.

Hey Guys - Thought I would share a great recipe for French Dip!

3 1/2 lb chuck roast
1 can beef broth
1 envelope onion soup mix
3 beef bouillon cubes
1 cup water
1 dark beer

Season roast.  I use salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.  Place roast in slow cooker.  Mix onion soup and beef broth.  Pour this and all other ingredients over roast.  Cook on low for 8 hours.  Remove roast and shred with forks.  Serve on hoagie rolls with provolone cheese dipping in remaining au jus!  Yum, Yum!

Meet Lewey!

Just took this picture of my new office mate!  He belongs to the President at my new work.  He just roams around the building all day going in and out of everyone's office.  I just gave him some left over turkey from my sandwich.  He loves me!


A different twist on Useless Info Tuesday.  I have not brought my calander of useles info from home...this is from Wikipedia....


Tears were shed at 1719 last night.  I had bought a bunch of groceries, and Josh and I were cleaning out the fridge to make room.  Rachel had gotten Chinese food Sunday night...and yes, we did the unthinkable!  WE THREW AWAY HER FRIED RICE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, many of you know what a picky eater Rachel is.  Heck, if I had to bet money on it, I would say the chances of her eating left overs would be 99 to 1.  And she didn't even like fried rice a year ago! 

She was a little sensitive last night, so what do we do?  We go on the defensive. 

R:  You could have at least asked! 
LL:  Well, you could have come to help with the groceries when I called you!
R:  You knew I was back there on the computer.
LL:  How could I know, you didn't come when I called you.
R:  I was totally going to eat that tonight.
LL:  I have never even seen you eat leftovers.
R:  I was looking so forward to it!
LL:  Get over it.

Lesson of the night:  DO NOT TOUCH Rachel's fry rye!  You might loose your hand.
