GM again, Groucho ... you don't seem to grouchy, lol ... takes a seat at the table, straightens cloth napkin in her lap ... says a silent prayer (rub a dub dub, thanks for grub, yay G-d)... My brother used to kick me under the table when it was my turn to say grace ... I'd kick him back harder and move my legs, lol ... and reaches for her plate ... I could eat breakfast and any meal ... matter of fact ... when the firm I was working for in Austin moved to Houston ... Edwanna and I lived two blocks from each other and 1/4 mile from IHOP ... on Friday nights we'd go to IHOP for breakfast ... I remember when Princess Diana passed ... we went to IHOP, came home and cried for Princess Di ... stayed up all night and watched in horror what was being televised ... Everyone loved the Princess ... I can still see her lovely face ... No one will ever be her or surpass her ... in my mind, at least ... well, moving right along ... It was an alright weekend ... Lost one of my Offbeat friends and another OB friend lost her mum ... both were very distraught and I tried to console and offer them as much comfort as I could ... it affected me as well ... I'm so sensitive these days, the holidays do not help as I miss my on mom and daddy ... my grandpa ...

On a lighter note: It's cold out and I love it .. so do my frisky pups ... can't get Jax to come in, he loves it so ... wish it would snow and watch Jax frolic in the snow ... he's so funny!...

Saturday afternoon the non-profit organization I am involved in fix numerous amount of care packages to be mailed today to the men and women of our armed services ... we specially wrapped the perishables so they would not be crushed and broken during transit ... I mean who wants a crushed Little Debbie sweet? lol ... personal hygiene stuff and handkerchiefs, towels and such ... they will appreciate anything they can get they do not have to buy ... it was nice helping our group and other volunteers who helped ...

Wishing all here a wonderful day filled with love, sunshine, warmth, joy and laughter ... Peace~FC <3 ...

Elgin sausage ...

Elgin (play /&#712;&#603;l&#60 9;&#616;n/) is a city in Bastrop and Travis Counties in the U.S. state of Texas. The population was 8,135 at the 2010 census. Elgin is also known as The Sausage Capital of Texas[3] and the Brick Capital of the Southwest [4] due to the presence of three operating brickyards in the mid-twentieth century (two of which are open to this date).

Just and FYI ... ohhhhhh, a sausage wrapped in a flour tortilla at McDonald's ... yummy!... Once you've had one you'll never go back ... guarnteed, lol ... just sayin'...

Groucho Marx wasn't exactly grouchy... More sarcastic tha anything else. He got that nick-name because in the days before wallets were popular, he wore what was called a 'grouch bag' around his neck to keep money and valuables. Jax?? He isn't named after... Nah... not Jax from General Hospital?

LADY EL: came across this as I was researching some law..........

CHAPTER 56

If we have disseised or deprived the Welsh of their lands or liberties or other goods, without lawful judgment of their peers, in England or in Wales, let these things be forthwith restored, and if a dispute arise upon this, let it be thereafter settled in the march by the judgment of their peers; on tenements in England according to the law of England; on tenements in Wales according to the law of Wales; on tenements in the march according to the law of the march. The Welshmen shall do the same to us and ours

That's most interesting, very interesting. Am puzzled as
to the significance of the seperate laws, apparently it all changed in the 1500's when the Tudors came into power, but not
completely au fait with it at all.
The Marches are the border country between England and Wales, running through Shropshire nand Hereford that I know of, beautiful countryside.
Thanks for that Sir Tally.

Always a fresh pot of coffee going Falcon....

Now what are you doing bringing your own skillet, lol,
the kitchen has state of the art cookware...I dry fry
the bacon in the ridged skillet, about the time the
sausage are five minutes of being cooked through....
actually just finished dinner here so can barely think of
food just now!

Found a pic taken at a vintage car display a few years ago,
I think I sent you one at the time? My problem, I cannot
identify the vehice...I will put it on my avatar and hope perhaps you or somebody else will come to the aid of the party!

REALLY? Well, I knew it would be ancient, but as old as that?

An interesting law is, it is still legal to use a crossbow here in self-defence.

Sad, sad ...very sad development. News is that radio hosts have been told not to come to work until further notice.
With some exceptions allowing for the relationships of parties involved, and nature of the prank, I'm not a keen fan of practical jokes. Not at all.
Have seen bits of interviews of the radio pranksters, and they seem to be truly grieved. There future with that radio station must be tentative for their show has been cancelled.

I feel it's right to "voice" for this nurse. She was from India, and had been in G.B./London for about four years. While she only passed on the call to the other nurse -- that hospital not having a receptionist/call screener handling that call -- her sense of duty dedication, and respect of patients and the Royals could very well have been from the emigre factors.

I think it's a natural human reaction to personify a poster: for me it depends on how regularly I post with an individual as to whether I do. I certainly don't do it for trolls! Does lead to some amusing mistakes - just found out someone I've exchanged posts with for a while is female not male (she made reference to her husband in a post)! I use my real face, but I can understand why many do not.
As with any non-verbal communication (and some verbal!), misunderstanding can occur. We post very swiftly (or I do at times) which can mean we don't express what we mean to write (and make typos). Thus, we can appear more critcal than we mean to be, or a comment is seen as a criticism when it is not meant in that way. In some cases, posters use language that in the RW, they would not consider saying to someone's face - the anonimity of the keyboard has much for which it should answer. All pretty obvious I guess, but thought I'd chuck in my ten pennyworth.
See you all in six days if I haven't turned into an iceberg on the water!
Safe seas to ya, Captain Tony!

I'm not sure how aware you are when you leave.
Sorry I missed this one.
Hi! Yeah, no doubt your lovable Ninja Princess Warrior have an excellent life. She's one little cutie there.

When I made the prior post, I was recalling seeing a celebrity/actor in an interview recently. Part of the presentation was taking the dogs for a walk in the neighborhood. One dog was on leash. The other, a Chihuahua, was "riding" along in the person's coat with its head and head sticking out. So I did "life is good" for it.

And dual-purposed "life is good" for you about your posting about your having your loving daughters, a good job you like, and the pets loved and loving back.

Hope you had a good weekend and the week started fine too.

My husband has never seen it. Me, I love it and never tire of seeing it. It was just beautiful and quite amazing. More to my pleasant shock I could actually hear the dancers' feet pattering on the stage! This was ballet not tap! I was so pleasantly surprised I didn't think that's what I was actually hearing.
Wow Quinny, hearing the foot-falls in a ballet is pretty darn awesome, as well as the ballet performance enjoyed, the venerable "The Nutcracker".

The seasonal lights in the city must be so pretty.
