We made it safely home from our trip about 745pm tonight. Sadly we missed CassiJo's musical at church. I made myself sick on the way home worrying about it, but thankfully, she was not to upset with us. (as a matter of fact, after kissing the car window when we drove up, the first thing she asked about was what we brought her. :o) that's a kid for you!)

We had a really nice relaxing time at the Jazz Fest. The weather was absolutely perfect for sitting outside. Nice and sunshiney with an occassional breeze to cool us off. The area we chose to sit in also had intermittant shade throughout the day so that was nice also, especially for us fair skinned chicks. Uncle Joe has already started working on his farmers tan so he just got a bit more tanned on his baldy cranium, thanks to the sunscreen he slathered on.

Our friends, Terry and Sharon from Benbrook came down midday and enjoyed all the music with us. They came down last year also and we all looked forward to being together again. (Terry and Uncle Joe went to school together)

We listened to Nawlins Gumbo Kings, Rosana Eckert and annagrey among others. They were all good and each brought a different flavor of music to the festival. I don't thinkI could pick a favorite if you asked me to, so don't. haha Terry enjoyed Rosana Ecker so much he asked for her autograph. He was too shy to go ask for it so Sharon and I accepted the mission and camped out at the musician's gate and obtained the coveted autograph thanks to a kind gate keeper guy named Chip.

When we returned from the mission, Annagrey was onstage and they guys announced "I think we want to stay for a while and hear the next set. " Click on her link and you will see why. She is very beautiful and has a beautiful voice. I was glad we stayed when it was all said and done.

We split up girls/guys and headed home to Terry and Sharon's home, about 45 minutes away. Sharon and I were on the highway and ran into a traffic jam and ended up taking a long short-cut home.....seems everyone and their Aunt Mildred had the same idea we did. We did have an interesting sight on the way home though: a motorcycle rider passed us, turned to look over his shoulder as if he was expecting some friends, then put his bootie in the air, his right knee on the seat of the cycle and proceeded to ride the longest wheelie i have ever seen! I think he saw how hawt we were and was showing off for us. I tried to grab my camera phone to get a shot but it was too dusky. It really was a spectacular wheelie.....

Sharon and I also talked about a trip back to Texas this summer with the girls in tow. She thought of several activities we could do, all with in minutes of their home. The US Mint, The Fort Worth Zoo and Six Flags Over Texas, Texas Ranger baseball and huge malls! :o)

We had a great late dinner at Olive Garden and had a good time messing with the young waiter. When he came to talk to us his voice went down at least one octave and Terry teased him unmercifully. We gave him a nice tip to make up for it. :o)

By the time we got home, we were tuckered out from the sun and the good food we had in our tummies, but managed to stay up and laugh some more. I got the best seat in the house : a recliner with a massage pad in it. (i sat in it for about 40 minutes and was all nice and relaxed for bed.)

It was a great weekend and great company. The closer I got to home the more I wanted to see our girls. They were very happy to see us and had a great time with Nana and Papa. Carly got to make some money while we were gone, and you can imagine how happy that makes a tweenager! Cassi and Nana had fun at chior and a full day of church today. I know Nana and Papa really enjoy having them around, but I am sure they enjoy it when they go home too. :o) haha

P.S. Highball! Is a railroader's term, and I will have to get a recap on what it actually means from Terry as I (in true form) don't remember. :o)

All that, and Jazz

This is what we will be listening to ALL DAY tomorrow here in Denton. I can't wait for a day in the sun with some good music, a good book, good food and great company.

We arrived in Denton mid afternoon and after we got settled in the hotel we ventured out for some great Thai food at Siam House. This is the second time we have visited this great place. It is decorated very eclectically and the service is very personal. The owner is the host and server and came to our table several times to visit and ask questions. He did do something very odd though. He use the word "aye" alot. It seemed funny to me and I smiled when he said it. It just didn't fit his persona. I had the Pad favorite dish. I just can't get away from it. Maybe if we had the opportunity to have it more I would venture out a bit. UJ had some kind of curry chicken dish and it was pretty good too. (but not too filling as we had to stop @ Krystal for a small bag-o-burgers on the way home after some shopping)

We also got to do a little shopping in the huge malls surrounding our hotel. One mall was really horrible for us and didn't really have any stores we enjoyed except Barnes & Noble. Couldn't you just stay there all day looking at those books?? I overheard some employees talking:
Man: "Do you know where my list is?"
Woman: "You probably laid it down on some books. I do that all the time....leave something to look at an interesting new book."
They sounded like 'perfect' book store employees don't you think??
There is lots of traffic here and I think my driving may have made Uncle Joe a tiny bit nervous. I don't know why. ;o)
Ok I am off to enjoy a long hot bath and some cable tv, and what ever else comes up.
Good night to all near and far........

Holding back for fear of rejection

Gotta love duct tape!

This is Megan and her prom date in DUCT TAPE PROM WEAR!! Is this not hilarious!? She goes to my church and is a doll. I don't know him at all but he must be pretty cool to wear a tape suit for his girl. I will have to ask her how she made this when I see her Sunday morning. :o)

These Shoes

These shoes make me happy when I wear them.

I found them last weekend and plan on wearing them to The Denton Jazz Fest next weekend.

I think I broke my baby toe yesterday. It turned purple while I was at work and now it hurts inside my happy shoes.

Our friends, Prayerful Mom & Dad came over last night and had supper waiting on me when I got home from awesome is that?? Steak, potatoes and salad, and of course Diet Pepsi to drink! :o)

Hope you all have a great weekend. We are off to Old Fort Days later to check out some old fashioned people and crafts. I like the kettle korn. :o)

My Brother In Law, Jory-San and his wife Noriko had their baby this week-a boy! They live in Japan so we are having to enjoy him via the internet. There are kiss marks all over all my computer screens. It is very embarassing.

He was born April 11th and weighed 6 pounds 4 ounces and was 19.1 inches long.....quite a long little guy to have been born 3 weeks early and to my petite SIL Noriko!

What?? His name?? It has not been announced yet. The anticipation is great!! Why? A name is very important and has to "fit" you know. Jory and Noriko had several chosen but wanted to see my nephew first before chosing. Choosing a Japanese name is a bit more involved than just choosing a name they like he tells me. They have to consider the characters in the name and in his case it also has to be a name that his Oklahoma family can pronounce. :o) They want his name to be Bi-National either in full or as a shortened version. He gave this example: A Japenese name like Kenji shorted to Ken would sound American. I did get one tiny hint: the name they have narrowed down to has a coincidental link to his Oklahoma family. Of course, being an out-law, I have no clue what this could be.

So for now, he is Baby-San

I will refrain from posting a picture, so Jory can be first to show off his little papoose. I will tell you he is beautiful and I just know his head smells good. :o)

Baby-San, can you say Aunt Su Su??

It's all in the ring

Don't you find it funny to be in a quiet office and this prissy proper person standing in front of you has a cell phone ringing to Nickelback's Rock Star?? I do.

Can't you tell alot about a person by their cell phone ring? You can deduce what kind of music they like, how good their hearing is and what they think of the caller, all in one tiny little ring.

I don't have a crazy ring tone yet. I am still searching for that perfect one to describe me. Maybe "Feelin Good" by Michael Buble?? Susudio by Phil Collins...BTW I know I spelled it wrong.....

What is your ring tone and for whom doeth it chime??

Four O'clock

I got a pot-o-four-o'clocks today.

Leslee swung by on her way to visit her family in Tahlequah and we had a good visit and a good supper at Charlies Chicken.

Why is it though that kids want to be right in the middle of the conversation when there are perfectly good rooms to play in that are full of toys?? Cass had someone to play with and where did she perfer to be?? Right between me and Leslee while we were visiting. Go figure.

We had fun and ate way too much.

Peanut to Leslee: "Mom you could have just said No when I asked for more pie."
Leslee and I looked at each other and laughed. Me to Peanut, "Or you could have just not asked for it." she looked at me like I was speaking Greek. :o)

Thanks for coming by to play Leslee.....we always have fun when you are around.
