My Life... Total Fireworks Baby!

I'm getting rested. I can almost form complete sentences. Soon I will be up and blogging again. I miss it, it's a great way to dump some crap and just laugh at my life. We finished our last big show of the summer season, (Ha! summer, last weekend it rained again and darned near snowed during our show.) It's been a mighty cool summer. Last Thursday night the temperature dropped from 94 to 55 degrees over frickin' night. By Sunday morning it was a balmy 38 degrees. The shows have been OK, we'll be fine. I was just looking for "TOTAL FABULOSITY"(now is that really a word?) Whatever, that's what I was looking for. We're headed for the middle of Montana in a week. Exciting...More shows on their way, of course, there's always another show. It's my life. Welcome, May you have "FABULOSITY" every day of your life.

To Wrap Or 2 Rap...

Crazy Days! It's the time we've been waiting for, The height of our season. The weather is still "iffie" but, WE'RE READY! Bring It! We have our biggest show this next weekend and my husband already thinks I'm the bossiest "Bitch" he's ever seen...Ah, things are right on track. He's been wrapping the tiniest stones with the tiniest wire we've ever used (whew, I'm glad that's him, I just keep putting stones in front of him, and he just keeps wrapping ugh!) Wouldn't the picture be so much funnier if he was sitting in his chair "Rapping" Say Dog, It's all Good...OK, it's probably only hysterical if you knew my "Redneck of an ol' coot Husband". Anyway, I tied 10 multi-pearl necklaces 2 days ago and after yesterdays Market, we have none left. That's good and bad at the same time. So we'll remain Crazy for 2 more weeks, with the weathers cooperation and customers with money to spend, all will be well. We have some awesome new things made and we're NOT AFRAID TO USE THEM! So may you also have a very abundant season, and may we NEVER have to see or hear my Husband RAP!

Baking In The Street

We had a show this weekend and for once this year, there wasn't "High Wind Warnings" HURRAH! I can't complain, but I must, it was frick'n HOT! Oh man, it was a street fair, so we're set up on asphalt. We're talking the thermometer said 90 degrees, so inside our canopy tent it absolutely had to be 150 degrees! OMG! Trying to greet the people with a fresh, "Hi, how are you today?" and then happily chuckle(without sounding hysterical) when each of them grumbled, "HOT!" Need I bring up the fact that the friction between my husband and I could have Spontaneously Combusted the whole State of Montana? I'm happy to say we lived through it, we were able to stay at Moms for the weekend, and she kindly kept Gabby (the heat would've roasted the wiener dog!) while we worked. So really we had wonderful food, great conversation, cool accommodations, and a safe place for "The Gabster", ALL IS WELL WITH THE WORLD. I guess I really don't have any complaints that matter...though my feet would tend to argue. May you always find something WONDERFUL in a CRAPPY situation:)

OMG! Cathi and I went to see the play "HAIR" last night. Way fun, I had a ball! We went out to dinner at Mambos and filled our gullets with rich Italian cuisine, Yum. She turned me onto Italian "Nachos", Crap, now that's a million calories good. Deep fried lasagna noodles drenched in cheese and cream sauce. We got a salad to share, you know, to balance the dinner with "good" calories, right? Then we waddled off to the theater to enjoy an evening of 60's Protest Music and "naked" Hippie's. Oh what an evening in Montana! I love the time I spend with my girlfriends. My husband? "HAIR"? I don't think so...May you fill up on rich, creamy foods once in a while, and may the only "naked" Hippie's you see be on stage in a theater:)

Really, where do the days go? My last blog was 10 days ago. I have been so disgusted with the Weather Gods lately, I thought I better give them some kudos for their behavior of late. We had a show this last weekend and had 3, count 'em, 3 perfect summer days. (The reason I'm stressing 3 is because that's really all the perfectness I can brag about, we lost yesterdays Market due to high wind gusts and rain, GEEZ...) I have invested heavily into silver, trying to prepare for our BIG shows that are coming up in the next few weeks, so I'm sick to my stomach and kinda whirling from the over use of the debt card. We do a small show this weekend close to Moms house, so no real travel expenses, Woo Hoo! Moms food and fun, yeah man, life is good. I'm already planning on Pinnacle and Mexican Train Dominoes, oh and if a Yankee Pot Roast or Mom's Red Chicken Dinner happened Friday night, we'd be talking, "LIFE IS PERFECT". May all the days in your life be "WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER PERFECT".

Happy 4th everyone! I'm in a much better state of mind today, a 4th of July state of mind. Right now I'm watching a John Wayne Movie Marathon, (I'm in the middle of CHISUM, JOHN CHISUM) I've already seen McClintock! and North to Alaska, and Cahill U.S. Marshall is coming up next. Now I'm thinking a 6-pack of beer, some friends, a BBQ, Fireworks (illegal, or just sparklers and those stinky black snakes), and I've done all I can do, to contribute to a perfect Celebration. My Dad would be proud. I miss him, especially on patriotic holidays. He was a proud American, an ex-Marine who teared up every time the "National Anthem" or "Amazing Grace" was played. He taught us that it was a Privilege and a Right we had as Americans, to do and be whatever we wanted as long as it didn't hurt someone else, to think and say the things we felt in our hearts, but before we bitched we should know both sides of an argument, and we should respect peoples differences. He was also the one who taught me that "Yeah, LIFE IS NOT FAIR!" Then he'd end that sentence with,"Tough S--t get over it!"(Just wanted to let you know it was not all sticky sweet all the time.) But then he was the first one to apologize when he was wrong, applaud you when you were right, hug you with love, or simply smile at you, and confirm a job well done. He and my Mom raised 3 independent individuals with loud voices and good values. They did a fabulous job. So now on this Celebratory day, we know that, Mom, Dad, The Duke, Beer, Friends, BBQ's, and Fireworks, is all takes to fill my "Americana" needs and make me feel happy and proud. May your 4th be WONDERFUL, may you "Oooo and Ahhh" at the Fireworks tonight, and may we NOT have to get back to 'reality' until tomorrow:)
