I just wanted to say that I love my friends. My mother has always said that when you’e an adult, your friends become your family. That is certainly true of Kevin and I. So, I guess I should say I love my family. God has blessed us in our lives with people that love us, and I am truly thankful. We love them right back.
Rita Hayworth. Rita Rudner. Rita Coolidge. Rita Moreno. And coming soon to
a city near you right here in North Texas, Hurricane Rita. Listen. I live in Dallas. Would someone care to tell me why I’m worried about a hurricane’s effect on my city? If Rita stays on course, by Saturday night, we will need to be seriously concerned about tornadoes, flooding, and wind damage. If the storm stalls over the metroplex, which is a possibility, then we can expect torrential rains and severe flooding.
One more time: I live in Dallas. That’s in North Texas. What the hell?
Sure, I know this is more information than anybody ever wants to know, but it’s a big deal. For the first time in the history of ever, my Pap Smear came back normal. Seriously. 16 years, and I finally got it right. Woo hoo!
Our thoughts and prayers are with the survivors and the family members of those who fell victim to terror on 9/11/01, as well as those who are fighting right now to make sure that it never happens again. To our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, we thank you.
Seriously. I could do this. all friggin’ day.
New Orleans is a city that I love. I’ve always loved it. Some of my happiest memories, and some of the memories I’d rather forget, are deeply rooted in the Crescent City. I can’t even begin to wrap my brain around the horrible tragedy that has struck the city. I can’t reconcile my vacation pictures with those running on an endless loop on CNN. I see the pictures of places that I’ve been, and I can’t recognize even the most recognizable landmarks. By now, you’ve seen the footage of the total devastation. You’ve heard the pleas for relief. Now is the time to reach out and help. Please visit any of these links and make a donation.
