Alabama Football!

The Alabama "Crimson Tide" won the 2009 BCA National Championship by beating Texas in the Rose Bowl on January 7, 2010....37-21. What better way to celebrate than with a pre-game party at work! Ren marked the fieldgoal for the win and we had a great time munching on hot dogs with all of the fixings!

OMG! I have neglected my blog long enough and I decided that I needed to pop in over here and create at least one more post before the end of the year! I am afraid that 2010 will find me not doing much of anything. It seems that I spend most of my time these day either on facebook or with my nose stuck in a book!

During the last few months, I have become an avid fan and reader of "Christine Feehan" and "Amanda Ashley". On the days that I am off of work, I find myself, all too often, curled up in a nice comfy corner with a book in my hand. When I get interested in one of these books, I loose all track of time and space and before I know it, it is 2 AM!!

I did make the time, this morning, to do two layouts! One of my grandchildren on Christmas morning and the other of my cat, Spider! Enjoy!

Kenny Chesney LIVE!!!!!!

One of the most exciting experiences in the world is to be at a very "High Energy" concert of one of your most cherished music artists AND have the best "spot" in the house!

First, it all begins back in 2003 when my husband and I had the opportunity to see Kenny Chesney live at the Palace Casino. We had seats at a table right at the stage. At the time, I wasn't that familiar with Kenny except that I knew that he sang the title cut to Jerry Mcquire and that I loved his newest song, at the time, "She thinks my tractors sexy". It was the most awesome experience, then, to sit at the end of that table and watch him sing. I hung on his every word and movement. I have always been a big fan of Country Music (I adore George Straight) but this was the night that I fell in love with Country Music...I fell in love with Kenny Chesney.

I have followed him ever since, purchased every album that he has released and I am even a member of his Official Fan Club. Hell, I even cried when I learned that he had married Rene! When I learned that he would be coming to Biloxi, Ms. (only 50 miles from where I live) I knew that this would be one concert I would not miss. My husband and I have never been true concert goers. We have been married 31 years and had never been to an official concert together...until now. Being a member of his fan club, I was able to purchase tickets on line during the pre-sale...4 days before they went on sale to the public. So, I decided that I would go for the full gusto since it would be an experience of a lifetime for me. I purchased the Floor Tickets and made up my mind that I didn't mind standing at stage level for a few hours. I could do this, I mean, it is Kenny Chesney for heavens sakes! (My husband wasn't really thrilled at the aspect, but then, he is not in love with the guy!) I couldn't have made a better choice!

I have been to a few concerts in my time (just not with my husband) and I thought that no concert could ever beat the E.L.O. concert that I went to with a jerk from work back in the 70's. HEH....Boy, was I WRONG!!! This was, by far, the BEST concert that I have EVER been to and if I am ever given the chance to do it again...I am already there!

Anyway, hubby and I were standing right at the end of the runway and there were about 2 lines of people in front of I wouldn't have been able to "reach out and touch" him but I was close. Heart stopping, blood pounding CLOSE!!! I think that if I were a fainting person, I would have a few times! There was, BTW, one young lady that did faint and had to be carried from the floor. Poor kid..I felt so sorry for her. Anyway... here are some of the photos that I took from my "SPOT" on the floor. I hope you enjoy them and fear not....they will be on a scrapbook page in the near future. Well, as soon as I can either purchase or make the perfect kit to use them with! ENJOY!!

Hurricane season we go again. I have lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for most of my life, 39 years, to be exact. I watch the weather channel much more when depressions and tropical systems come across the Atlantic. I mean, you have to stay informed about the weather no matter where you live, but here...where I am...this time of the year is the worst.

Allot of people will say, "I wouldn't live in the path of hurricanes", "why don't you move". Let's consider the alternatives...

Tornados - earthquakes - floods - Fires - snow and ice ...

tornadoes - no advance warning. They just find you!
earthquakes - no way, Jose'
floods - been there before,
fires - I don't relish the thought of everything I own being charred to cinders.
snow and ice - I can't stand the cold and I cannot drive in the stuff!

hurricanes - At least I can sit here and watch them come across the Atlantic and have a reasonable idea of where they are going and how strong the winds will be. Given that - I can decide for myself if I want to pack my most valuable possessions and hit the highway to a safer place or just sit here at home and hold down the walls!

So I live one of the most beautiful places in the USA and when Hurricane season comes around, I get my Jim Cantori and Jeff Morrow fix!

So I am sitting here this morning watching the weather channel to see where TD 4 is planning to go. It formed in the Gulf, just off the West coast of Florida overnight. I also have my eyes on the other two that are making their way across the ocean.

Anyway, we will see what happens this year with the named storms and hopefully...all will be well.
