I like grown-up Justin Timberlake-Saturday 9

1) When was the last time that you got dressed up, or to borrow from Mr. Timberlake, "fixed up to the nines?"
DD1's wedding where I work my Spanx, stockings, wore a pink silk suit, had someone do my hair and makeup and looked divine! Since then, probably at a company event.

Daddy's Back Saturday 9

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.
1) Crazy Sam's dad often traveled for business, and always remembered to bring her the little complimentary soaps or body lotions he got from the hotel. When you travel, do you bring back souvenirs? Send post cards?
I don't send postcards, though I will sometimes buy them for the picture.  I try to get something for the grandsons.  When we went to Branson, we came back with an engineer's hat and whistle, that were a big hit.  I use to bring back something that would be appropriate for the Christmas tree, decorating in December would bring back memories for all of us.

Arkansas Ozarks Bound

Eureka Springs also known as Little Switzerland
We have made some plans for traveling in Mlle Cozette, at the end of June.  We are going to venture further into the Ozarks by crossing the border into Arkansas and visiting Bentonville, the Pea Ridge National Military Park, and Eureka Springs.  We are going to leave on a Monday and be back the next Friday or Saturday.  Where we want to go is primarily dog friendly but I have located a couple of doggy day cares in Bentonville.
Bentonville is where Sam Walton of Walmart fame hailed from.  I want to soak up a little vintage retail therapy while we are there, but we are primarily going for the art museum Crystal Bridges, Museum of American Art.  We have wanted to see it ever since we saw it on Sunday Morning

Sunday Stealing - Wierd Questions

Do you wear slippers?
I go around in bare feet, except in winter when I have socks on.  I have slippers except I usually can only find one at any moment in time. 

How many pictures are in your living room?
Three pictures.  My DD's in graduation mode and a Jean-Claude Picot lithograph.

Sweet Caroline - Saturday 9
The idea for this came from Harriet, who suggested the baseball theme.

1) “Sweet Caroline” has been sung during every Boston Red Sox home game since the 1990s. (Click here to watch Neil Diamond lead the fans in the first game after April’s bombing.) Do you know the words well enough to sing along?
Sweet Caroline, Bap Bah Bah.  Good times never seemed so good.  That's it!

2) Do you have a favorite major league baseball team?
Not really, though I have gone to Angel and Dodger games when we use to have team building outings at work.  I have a pink Angel's

Fitted Sheets

This has always been a problem for me, but here are some instructions for folding, from our friends from DogHouseDiaries, that really make sense.  If you are already doing it this way, you are smarter than me.

Utterly Obsessed.... With Nothing at All
My current obsession are games.  I have been a bad blogger, Usually when I can't write I at least do my rounds and comment. But I mostly Lurk.  I have been seriously hooked on games.  I have been mindlessly playing at Nick Mom, Yahoo, and Facebook.  I use to play a few word games every morning first thing to get the mind warmed up, but lately it has moved more toward obsession.  We started turning the TV off at 9am, but now I think I have to turn the computer off as well.

We have had rain for over a week, with lots of storms that have been very scary, Think Moore OK, those storms went moved on to MO and while we suffered no damage they had potential.  Mr BC follows the weather on his laptop during the storms and I wring my hands.

This is Mr BC's high school reunion weekend.  We went to a dinner last night and it was a very small crowd for an all school reunion, There was a bigger crowd at the picnic.  I got to meet some more of the guys and gals Mr BC has talked about, lo these many years.  Mostly I was a little bored because Maggie and Jiggs weren't there.  We came home, and after a weekend of not taking the dogs with us when we went out, we took them for a walk in the park. They were so happy!

(Amazing) Just the Way I Am! - Sat 9


1) This song is about a girl who can't accept how pretty she is. How do you respond to compliments? Do you accept them graciously, or do you get embarrassed?
I have learned after many years to just say thank you.  Instead of telling the person that their opinion is just wrong.
