Mr Ratburn and Little Rita are off to Flarhida to visit the relations for a week. I have lots of sewing to do, but, I will still be spending some time watching chick flix, drinkin, chatting on the phone and computer, taking out the trash, wasting time on fbook and other various get it trouble ables. Today I drove to SFO and back to deliver them to the plane, the traffic was horrendous and I ended up on the east side of SF instead of 19th....that meant another 45 minutes in traffic on top of the regular routine, 5 hours total for that drive! Then I stopped on the North side of the GG Bridge for a most breathtaking view, but didn't stay long, it was absolutely freezing on the bridge. (I do love living here...) That was enough work for today...
Right? The travelers have just called from Dallas/Ft worth...! I'll be right here chillin!
This proud mom would like you to notice the gold ribbon with bronze medal which means she is an honor graduate, woo hoo yes I am proud! Little Rita also received a citizenship award, and a presidential academic award signed by President Obama. Way to go, kiddo! Hey I am allowed to brag, I am the mom. And by the way, she is wearing heels so I am not that much shorter than her, yet. So, here we are, another summer on the way. Thing is, we haven't had much sun as of yet. In fact, it is still raining in Northern California, which is quite odd for June. I blame the mighty volcano. In fact, it was completely humid today which is so strange for the west coast, I was sweating my ass off all day, and no, it wasn't hot flashes. Hope all is well in blogland, and please see below for the cutest Soul Sister ever! Have A Lovely Day!
When I was in my mid 20's, I got really into Nanci Griffith. She was just a little sweetheart. I loved her music. Of course, no one else but myself in LA would admit to liking Nanci Griffith, and because of that, I saw her live about 12 times, 3 or 4 times in the front row of little clubs and even in the front row of some well known dive on Hollywood Blvd whose name slips my mind. Now the first time I heard this song, it brought tears to my eyes, and tonight while I was browsing on Youtube, actually looking for some Kate Wolf music, I ran across this performance. It's lovely, and it still brings tears to my eyes, only this time, Little Rita saw me tearing up, poked fun and me and the song. She was, no doubt, waiting for the mandatory rap solo which never came. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I do. Tell me if it makes you cry.
