We Are Having Babies!

Gotcha! We are having babies but not what you thought initially. Hee,hee! A pigeon has decided my hanging flower pot is a lovely place to make her nest. I am so thrilled! I can't wait to have the little baby birds in there. Momma bird is so sweet. I have seen Daddy bird visiting as well. I think he may have been bringing her some take out to eat! I will take pictures of the new "children" when they arrive.







Swinging in the breeze!



Isn't she just the sweetest thing?



These eggs seem big for such a small bird. I wonder if they go through birthing pains like humans? I know, I wonder some really crazy things!

I'm a Sunflower


I have been taking alot of quizzes on Facebook lately and took one today that determines what kind of flower you are. I was thrilled that I am a sunflower as they are one of my favorite flowers! Here is what the quiz says about me:

You are energetic and have a natural influence on others. You tend to be very upbeat and laugh often. People enjoy being around you. Only a few of the reasons you have so many friends. GREAT!

Of course, I noticed that when ANYONE takes a quiz it is always a nice result. It would be cool to have a quiz that will determine if you are really nice or mean and nasty! HA,HA!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Match Day


My (much) younger sister, Janet, is graduating from medical school on May 16th in Ft Worth, TX. I am so proud of her. She is the "baby" of four children. Our older sister was 17 when Janet was born. My older brother, Mel, was 14 years old and I was 13. We had so much fun with her. She was like our baby. My best friend and I would put her in the stroller and walk her around the neighborhood. She was my living babydoll! And now she is a doctor! Today was Match Day. Match Day, you ask? Medical students interview with hospitals for positions. And at the same time, the student doctor is interviewing the hospital. In my sister's case, she interviewed with 10 hospitals. The student doctor ranks her/his preference of hospitals and the hospitals rank the student's. Then they match the student and hospital. Some folks do not get matched at all and have to scramble to find places. Janet found out earlier this week that she did match. She will not tell anyone how she ranked her choices, but judging by her excitement I believe she got her first choice. She will be working in the ER at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana! First thing that came to my mind is LSU football! Woo hoo! She has worked many years to get to this place in her life and I am completley thrilled that she followed her dreams and is about the reap the rewards of her dedicated work! She is not only my baby sister, she is my hero! Congratulations sis! I love you!

I've Been Dumped..........!

...........by one of my followers! Stopped following me. No Dear John letter. Nothing. I only had 21 to begin with. And I hope you all know how much you mean to me! Needless to say, I was heartbroken! Couldn't we have gone to blogger therapy? I didn't even get served papers to appear in bloggy divorce court! I didn't even get to plead my case to Judge Judy! Or Judge Joe Brown! Or Christina's Court! Or the hunky Judge Alex! No tearful goodbyes. I had no idea it was about to end. Woke up one morning and I was missing you, #21. I know who you are, but to respect your privacy you shall remain annonymous. I was totally blindsided. Couldn't we have talked this out? Was I dumped because I had a quiet week with no posts? Did I not say I Love You enough? I did not give you enough attention? We could have worked this out. Please come back to me! I promise to me more attentive from now on!

Andy Rooney is a Smart Man!

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about
women over 40:

60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS)

As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few
reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask,
'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around
whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more
interesting..

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at
the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you
deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away
with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's
like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a
woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her
younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are
a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you
stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's
not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well -coiffed, hot woman over 40,
there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with
some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for
free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.
Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a
little sausage!

Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

Birthday Giveaway Winners!


I have had a really nice day today! I got tons of emails, birthday cards, instant messages, presents, lunch, and dinner! I did the family and friend thing on Saturday and I must tell you my hubby embarrassed me so bad. We went to Outback and they gave me a sundae for dessert. They do not do any singing there which is perfectly fine by me. HOWEVER once the waiter delivered it my husband got out of his chair and I instantly knew what he was going to do. It felt like slow motion. He got out of his chair and I said "NOOOOOOOOO Kevin!" And then he did it. He announced to the entire restaurant that we were celebrating his wife's 45 birthday and would everyone please sing Happy Birthday to me. And they did! I wanted to kill him! He had done this a couple years ago but I honestly had forgotten about it until I saw him get out of his chair!Tonight I went out with the girls and had dinner at TGIFridays and had a couple of drinks. This time the servers sang Happy Birthday so that wasn't too embarrassing considering Saturday! My new favorite drink is Pomegranite Margarita. Can you say YUMMY? And to top off the night, one of my best friends daughters had a boob job and let me see them. I do not swing both ways but I was just curious. She did not mind showing me, so I went in the bathroom and I got to check the girls out. Even felt them. They were beautiful and looked really great on her. I cannot describe the feeling. Soft and firm at the same time. I was comparing mine to hers and I must say mine weren't bad for a 45 year old especially compared to a 21 year old with beautiful store bought boobs ...ha,ha!

Now for the really fun stuff! The winners were randomly chosen at Random.org. And the winners are..............

JannaBee - the Boro Glass pendant necklace

Chef E - Vera Bradley clip zip ID holder

Tooj - Lovely matching coin purse and debit card holder

Ladies - please email me your snail mail addresses and Janna, I need to know the lenght you want for your necklace. flipper3964@gmail.com

I promised I would let you know in another post what the 2nd prize is. Two words - Vera Bradley! But don't get too excited. I bought this so it is not one of the big items, but it is cute. It is the clip zip ID holder in green Cupcake.

Friday Favorites

Thanks to Janna for the idea. It's Friday Favorites! Time to give a shout out to the things that got me through the week and give credit where credit is due! Here are my Friday Favorites this week....


He drives me crazy but I love him! He really is a good man!


My son who loves the Steelers almost as much as me~!


Brutus loves to lay in the snow!


Brutus likes to supervise Dad while he shovels.


I was in the window of our bedroom upstairs and took these pictures and even flashed him. He didn't even see me do it. Hopefully the neighbors didn't either. But if they did, I don't care! Ha,ha!


Always thankful to have a house!

I am sneaking in another prize alert. Drop me a line on this post and you are entered for prize #3!

Free To a Good Home

My husband is on my last nerve tonight. Comes home from the gym, grabs his dinner which I made while he was gone, and tells me to change the channel when he comes into the living room with his plate of food. Um, hello.....I am watching something! You don't roll into the living room in the middle of my program that I am obviously watching and tell me to change the channel! WTF? And this whole time, mini-me (son who is the carbon copy of his dad) is sitting on the couch preaching to me because I should go to the gym EVERY night because "we" pay money for me to go. What the hell is going on with these clowns tonight? I think I am going to retire to my boudior early tonight to get some peace and quiet! I hope everyone else is having a better evening.

Off topic - only 14 folks in the running for my birthday giveaway, so everyone has a really decent chances on getting the prize! Since I wish I could give you all something, I have decided to give a second gift away in that same drawing. I will reveal what it is in another post. See the method to my madness? If you want the scoop, you have to keep coming back and reading my new posts to see if I sneak something in! As Chris O would say, I am pimping out my blog. Ha,ha! Love ya girl ~ you are such a hoot!

xoxoxoxo to all!
