And Now For Something Totally Different....

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I've been sewing my ass off, erm, for the most part, anyway...giggle giggle....and I have spent the weekend emailing and otherwise contacting hotels and stuff in India for my upcoming trip in December. This is where I announce, for those of you that do not already know, whereas it is rapidly approaching the year of the 20th wedding anniversary of MR and MRS Ratburn, that in celebration, the Rat shall be accompanying me to India this year.
In other news I was one of the few priveleged parents invited to chaperone Little Ritas 6th grade class dance on Friday night. So you know, I had to be sure to wear something not too crazy or hippie like, and of course, NO dancing, mom, just watch us. Ok LR, got it, no dancing. For those of you that have never had an 11 year old, to be invited to actually appear in public with them, let alone at a social function, is quite the big deal. I really did feel honored!


For Musical Monday I have NOT chosen a Rufus! You're gonna have to watch it to find out what it is. I guess it has to be a pretty good choice if'n i'm skippin' Rufus, right?
When I was a little kid in that fish smellin' place I mentioned last week, my parents were quite the partiers and they had friends with a band. I seem to remember an awful lot of partying at the cabin that belonged to all these young sailors, and so tonight I chose a song that I always think of when I remember those days, because my parents buddys band played it a lot......I hope you will enjoy it.
Yes Im making you watch it to find out what it is.
Not Rufus I promise.

Wow - GOOD choice of song, and great video!!!

But hang on... wasn't that Rufus in the crowd, dancing and shouting "Suuuuusiiiieeee"?

Oh I so love that song and little did I know I love Wilson Picket. I looked up the song and found a WEB site that was playing a lot of his music. I had no idea who did those songs. I just may need to buy a CD. Wilson Picket's Greatest Hits looks perfect.

Thank you.

I can not believe it is coming up on your next trip to India again. It seems like you just came back.

I know what kids are like at that age. To be able to chaperon is huge. It seems like at that age they ask you to drop them off a block away from school and not to talk to their friends. Congratulations.

And LR has a cool mommy.

I know what you mean by getting invited to go along to a dance, I haven't received any such invitation as of yet because of my love of music and my habit of bursting out in song where ever I am..lol!

Wow, 20 years! That is great Susie, I can't wait to see all the pics and hear about all that you two do in India!

NO FAIR! You got to grow up listening to Wilson Picket and I got stuck with Wayne Newton. Ew.

Thanks for sharing. My friends live in the fishy smelly place and are adoring the sort of "dropping out". For now.
