The TSA Parody (below) by "The Bar and Grill Singers" (click HERE) has been long a favorite of mine--and I just found it with a pictorial, you might have heard it.... 

Peeps, I've gotten SO far behind in my violin practicing, cleaning, yard work. Dog LUCKY has been digging up and breaking off newly installed sprinkler heads.  He thinks they're bones!  BOY did  I become angry--lasted about an hour till I could calm down. I had just spent a whole morning digging and gluing and cutting.

Oh well...got to service two of our computers, install new operating system in two machines, along with programs which will work in 64-bit environment. And lots of other fix-it stuff which has been begging for attention. 

SO I have decided to abstain from posting on my blog, or commenting on yours...that will be the hard part, I LOVE to write on YOUR blogs!

May you ALL have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING and remember how fortunate we are to live here (especially us in Naples--grin!)

I'll be back, maybe Sunday or Monday, or Tuesday and I know y'all will be here still, but I have to letcha know this:  I WILL MISS YOU PEEPS!

Love and Peace to you all--I mean that. I will probably be reading you during this "sabbatical" because I don't want to get too far behind.

Thank you ALL for being here for me, this has been a wonderful year-and-a-half period in my life--learning all about you...and all about me...and about God!

Ok! We have to step off to catch up with the "life in the real" at times even though we would love to warm our you know what, and get our eyes all starry and blurry from too many hours on the small dingy screen..

Happy Thanksgiving, Steve!

And...please don't get too upset with Lucky. He loves you and he doesn't understand what a sprinkler is. He just thinks it's a fun thing to play with.

Selchie said...

Have a great rest Steve. You certainly earned it with all the good work you do.)

We don't have thanksgiving but I will wish you beautiful sleep and sun filled days.

hugs, Sarah)

Thank you for being in my world, real and virtual. Your sunny comments spur me on. Have a great Thanksgiving! After you get the sprinklers fixed, you should lie in wait for the dog to go after one and turn the system on; might dampen his zest for the dig. Just a thought. J.

Jess Mistress of Mischief said...

Happy Thanksgiving my friend. I'm sending virtual love and bear hugs to you, anna and the family and friends that surround you bring your spirit shining out into the world!

You sound like a wonderful & wise man & I loved this funny 'Flying' video...it made me laugh which is always a good way to wake up. Get your chores done & if your anything like me, you be gone for long! LOL

We are missing you badly

Nevine said...

Steve, I stopped in to let you know there is nothing to be afraid of where I am... I am normal person who likes to experiment with something I think I can do fairly well... and I am so honored by your visit and your so very kind words. So, I just wanted to thank you for stopping in, and to tell you to please revisit that "fear" and come on over whenever you want... you're more than welcome. And humbled? That would be me. I am forever humbled by anyone who is skilled enough to play the violin.

Silver said...

For me? You are going to make me cry!

I was so mesmerised by these lines..

I know a place
Where tomorrow always is
I see white curtains lace
Blowing in sweet breezes
Of tomorrow...today!

When in this my place
The sun daily at last sets
Forever at the same time
Your sun rises there
Because it is tomorrow

Always and forever
Tomorrow is there
Yesterday is never
And now I know why
God made it that way....

You took my mind so far away by then, i could barely focus on the rest. You are too sweet, thank you.
