Good Grief! What's this world coming to when Nordstrom's is pimping t shirts with whitetail deer on them? The tines on the deer represent the approximate number of holes currently in my abdomen following my recent laproscopic surgery. Yes, I was a surgery virgin until last Friday altho Mark, (The Walking Man), expert on all thing surgical and beyond, did his best to coach me thru it. His tips regarding my impending nudity while freezing half to death while 8 people in masks view my 'regions' was very helpful. My hiatal hernia experience came off without a hitch and I am home happily recovering, not too much worse for the wear. My Mom is here nursing me along my recovery. She's fabulously handy at cleaning, making casseroles and even cutting back my irises. I think I'll stay uncomfortable for just a little while longer than necessary just to keep her here. And to watch 'Dancing with the Stars' with me. We both have that guilty (not really so guilty) pleasure and love to critique expertly (of course), while admiring all the hot euro trash in tight pants! Yes,please..
On a much different note, I want to give a jspot kiss and hug to friends Ben (sometimes commenter, BenJammin') and Dave, who's sons are both deer hunting in Youth Season. And both of the boys are named Zach! Ben's son, age 9 has already bagged his buck and the other Zach will probably get his very soon. But the big nod really goes to the Dad's for the lessons they have taught their son's. Firstly, the support it takes while the boys got their licence to hunt, and then hours while the shot is perfected. Next comes time waiting in the blind teaching patience, dedication, and perseverence. And lastly, the respect of mother nature all while bonding over some Father/Son time. What a beautiful thing. Congrats guys.
Oh, just one more thing...How about that women going all 'Goodwill Hunting' and finding that painting for 9.99 at the local thrift store. And then reselling it at an auction for 37,000.00! How cool is that? I love thrift stores and once found a 50 dollar bill in the pocket of a vintage tuxedo jacket that I had purchased. And another friend who happened on a very cool chess set that turned out to be solid ivory which she sold at a very solid profit on Ebay. Whoo Hoo. I'll be paying much more attention to the 'art' section of the stores in the future.
Any shway..got to get to my recovering..feet up, check. Phone(s) within reach, check. Ice water, Lola, Ipad and blankee, check, check, check and check. And to all of you Dolls, check ya later! Have a great week. xoxo
