Thought for the day

Some days are a total waste of makeup.

I was plenty busy today and got NOTHING accomplished. 


The country grocery store – a poem

Mary had a little pig

she kept it fat and plastered,

And when the price of pork went up

she shot the little bastard.

Evidentally I’ve been a very bad girl.  Not only will WordPress not let me comment on other peoples posts, it won’t even let me comment on my own. 😦


So I found out that all my OWN comments went into spam.  Now that should tell me to STFU!

Clog your arteries breakfast!

I am big on skillet meals and for breakfast this is a great one.  It’s good for company or quick family b/fast.

2 medium red potatoes, peeled and cubed

1/2 diced onion

1/2 diced green, red or orange bell pepper

saute the above in butter until done

8 lightly beaten eggs

4 strips cooked bacon crumbled

add to the potato mixture, stirring constantly until whites of eggs are done.

top with cheese….this morning I used Salsa Jack.  Cover until cheese is melted.

serve with toast or my personal favorite, corn tortillas.

And a must have pico de guillo. 😀

To prove a point…..

angelica-and-noah-new.jpg I wrote a post earlier about how I could possibly live a looooooooooong time.  I can just see six generations with me being the great, great, great g/ma.  The baby girl turned two yesterday.  I was a grandmother at 38.  If she is a grandmother at 38 I could make it at 95….. Holy moly I think I’ll be around. 😀  Grandmother made it seven years past that. 

By the way – The beauties are Miss Angelica and Master Noah. Aren’t my great grandchildren precious!

Remember, once you get over the hill, you’ll begin to pick up speed.

This is incredibly true.  It seems that only a couple of days ago my children were babies.  Now two of them are pushing 40 and one is a grandfather. 

My body is aging but my spirit is not.  I’m hanging around to piss the people off who would be happy if I die.  To those I say – fuck you in the neck with a family tree.  We live a loooooooooooooong time.
