This Just In......


Yesterday I got an email from a really nice couple that Gary and I met while in Goa. The husband grew up in the states, and when he was in high school, the wife to be came from Denmark on an exchange program. They have been together ever since...something like 30 years,and live in Denmark.
They have two awesome sons, and both have also had the opportunity to come to the states to study for a year, and like their mother and father who went to the same high school as these boys did, they are the highlight of this small town high school, and all the girls crazy over these gorgeous blonde boys!
We had a really good time getting to know this lovely family and they have sent me some hilarious pictures from New Years Eve. You know, the crazy Russians, the whiskey, the dancing?
Of course I am not doing a sparkler, and yes I am protecting my head. Remember what happened to me last year when I did the sparklers? I love this picture because it is exactly midnight and I am trying not to catch on fire like last year instead of celebrating.

That night! I am telling you now, I am more than two sheets to the wind in these pictures, but they are so fun, they capture the excitement and craziness of the evening. Now, unless I know someone is taking a picture of me, I am completely the queen of goofy faces, but you know, it's ok, you have all seen enough "good" pictures of me to know that I don't always look this......um...BAD! LOL

OK, stupid face but let me remind you, it's New Years Eve, it's about 90 degrees, about 90% humidity at 11 pm. Gary and I were the first and the last people on the dance floor, and here we are starting the fun! I am not picking my nose, I think I am wiping sweat off my face!

Once more, I apologize for not being around. I just can't spend the time that I used to blogging, and, as another blogger once told me, "if you spent more time working and less time online you might actually make some money!"

I have taken his advice, and you know what? He was absolutely right! Are you at all surprised? But, all is well in the Susie/Ratburn/Little Rita front, although LR is 11 1/2 now and getting incredibly emotional and moody so I have to ya know, tie on my cape (no cape! no cape! Right, Logo?) and tights and become super mom of preteen daughter now. She is also almost as tall as me and eyeing my shoes!

Have a lovely week, I will not bore you with Muscial Monday but if I had posted something, it would either be Amy Winehouse or The Zutons.

Over and out.

Susie

Well it's not really a New Year's celebration, I always say, unless you're trying NOT to catch fire!

Party go-ers catching on fire...now THAT'S a party! :)

HUGS...

You were having a wonderful time. How perfect. I love photos like that. Posed pictures are a necesary evil but I personally love the candinds. They catch people doing things like... well like you. How fun is that.

Good thing you did not catch on fire.

Good to know you could celebrate New Year in the good Scandinavia style Danish is almost as crazy as Norwegians you know :lol:

Btw: Wont you come over and see how I did on a beach without bikinis this Sunday? I used my camera to capture it - my mobile phone could not get the details ;-)

I thin you are right about the online thing...

& I guess half of us did not do a 55 this time as we did not want to disrupt your busy schedule...

Take care Susie. I LOVE the pictures! :)

nothing wrong with taking some time away from the computer...

... I myself am just returning to/trying to find a happy medium with life and blogging.

Glad to see you are well though :)
