Four Days and Counting…
We’re four days out from our DC Gathering at Watkins Park in Largo, Md. The Saturday, July 16 festivities will begin at noon and go until about 6 p.m. Thank you to all who signed-up to provide the goodies for the event. So far, Angie is providing what we’ll be “burning” on, that is, the grill, charcoal and lighter fluid. Jeanine, Eber and Toya have signed on to show us where the beef is (or whatever type of meat those hotdogs and burgers end-up being!) Tamara, Angie and Jeanine are bringing rolls, while Melissa and Marcia are providing the much needed condiments to make our tasty treats, finger-lickin’-good. Tamara and Marcia have also agreed to provide forks, knives, spoons and cups. Shannon is making sure you don’t load up on too much meat, by providing chips and watermelon. Feel like you just have to have your salad tossed? Well, Jeanine is being generous enough to bring a tossed green salad. The NYC contingency (moi’ included) will bring soda, juice, ice and miscellaneous treats. If you’re wondering if it’s too late to “chip” in, it isn’t. Please drop Angie an e-mail with what you’d like to contribute or just post it in our Comments section to this Morning Edition. We look forward to having a really great time and hope you are ALL there to celebrate the old, the new and the gift that is life!
Her Crime; Too Much Pussy
Ruth Knueven of the Mount Vernon section of Virginia loved cats. Unfortunately, authorities say they were forced to remove 187 cats from her home; this didn’t include the 86 dead cats found in her trash bins. The 82-year old Knueven was physically living with the animals. Authorities say there are still cats living in the walls and chimney of the Knueven home. The elderly woman was issued two summonses for failure to care for animals and for failure to dispose of dead animals properly. The fees were nothing to hiss at.
Where There’s Smoke
As it turns out, there are still folks in this world who sincerely believe that everyone around them is blind to their shenanigans. Such is the case with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. If you’re like me, you’re ambivalent to the two-some and whatever could be going on between them. Quite honestly, the pair is garnering too much free publicity behind the allegations that they’re having an affair. Still, if we’re to believe that they are not romantically involved and they are both adults that recognize the media is hanging on to their coat tails for a story, why do they insist on running around together – across African beaches, in grocery stores and most recently, to adopt an Ethiopian 5-month old girl – the new addition to the Jolie family?! For crying out loud! Spare us the cock-and-bull story that nothing is going on between you two and learn that ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. If it quacks, walks-like and does AFLAC commercials, it’s probably a -------- you guessed it, DUCK!
Keep passin’ the open windows…
