"Don't Judge My Hair"

Photo provided by Wilma at Little Toes and Cheerios

I received an email yesterday that contained a link to THIS SITE. It is absolutely HYSTERICAL! I'm still not sure why it was sent to ME...;)

We all need to pull out those '80's photos and send them in. Go ahead. You know you want to!

Wilma....if you don't submit these pics, I will be forced to do it for you! I'm REALLY curious to see what sort of caption they come up with!!!

Head Count

Photo borrowed from this site.

Alright. It's time to commit. One way, or the other. Are you coming to the Urbanna Oyster Festival?

Chesapeake Bay Woman and I need to get an accurate head count so the planning can continue. Or, possibly, begin;) If you've never been, you are in for a real treat! You'll want to plan to arrive Friday afternoon so you don't miss the Fireman's Parade Friday night. For me, that's one of the highlights! There will also be a fantastic band playing after the parade....BONUS!

The little water town will be buzzing with activity Saturday as well. Something for everyone!

Hope to see you in November:)

I have grown tired of the negativity and lack of couth that seem to be more the norm than the exception these days. I'm going to list ten compliments, and I want you to USE THEM. Compliment your neighbor, your hairdresser, the bum on the corner, or yourself. I don't care HOW you use them, just USE them!! Consider this MY small effort to restore decorum and civility to this crazy world. Or, just consider me crazy!!

1. I knew I could count on you!

2. Have you lost weight?

3. I LOVE your shoes!

4. I'm glad you're my friend:)

5. You are one of the smartest/ most talented women I know!

6. You deserve it!

7. Life certainly is agreeing with you!

8. That sweater is the perfect color for you!

9. You have excellent taste!

10. You always know just the right thing to say:)

Now, GET OUT THERE and let's spread a little sunshine!!

By the way, YOU look fabulous today:)

On this day of remembrance, I'd first like to honor a very special person who blessed my life in many ways. My cousin, Billy, was killed in the line of duty on January 2, 1990. Click Here to view his "Officer Down Memorial Page" He was just shy of his 24th birthday. This hero lives on in our hearts.

I've been struggling all day to come up with a post that would be meaningful. Searching for a way to honor and thank those who put their lives on the line for us. On the eighth anniversary of the day that our great nation was brought to its knees, words just seem insignificant.

In true hero fashion, the local boys showed up just in time! They didn't seem to mind having a crazy lady ask to take their picture in the middle of a parking lot. Thanks for being such good sports, guys! Here's a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for all that you do to serve our community! May God richly bless each and every one of you.
