A Family Discussion

It always goes back to sex. Here in this short little clip, you will see my cousins Cindy, Vicki, Judi and my Aints Joy and Lady.   I’m the one doing the interviewing and wetting my pants laughing so hard. Do keep in mind that my Aint Joy is 88 years old and the “quiet, refined” Collie. There’s only one and she would be it.

The Stars At Night…Are Big and Bright

I got to go down to San Antonio Friday to see my kinpeoples. It was a quickly planned, spur-of-the-moment thing and the doings of the Good Lord. I’ll tell more about it later but here’s a few pictures of me and the Collie Clan…

Now, I’m not positive, but, I think I had just said something off-cullah.  The way Cuzzin Sharon (I was named after her) is looking at me…I think it’s possible.

This is my Aunt Lady (that is her real name) my two-time Uncle Wesley (was married first to my Aunt Junie then married Lady after Junie died. Heh.) and then my Aunt Joy with their most favorite-est niece. 

Top…me, Cindy, Vicki Sitting…Judi, Joy, Lady and Sandra.

Yes, we are hawt.

Mo’ later.

Still Raining

I’ll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands
That You are who You are, no matter where I am
Every tear I’ve cried, You hold in Your hand
You’ve never left my side and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

George Carlin

Loved George Carlin.  Just loved him. Ok so yeah, he’d hurt my feelings when he’d diss the Lawd and all, however, everything he said was pretty well thought out and I admired how comfortable he was with it. Never agreed with that part…however…a lot of what he said here, I’m down with.

The man who I allowed to knock me out and operate on my nose, Dr. Tom Holzen,(who is also perhaps one of the best Bluegrass fans around) could pass for George’s twin.

Show Me Your Hallelujah Hands, Boys and Girls…

It’s that time of year again….one of my favorite things all year…Bible Skoo is back and I am oncet again the Official Picksha Lady.  (That’s what the kids usually call me so that’s what I put on my nametag) I don’t do the regular teacher thing at Bible Skoo cause I get bored being in one spot.  Thisaway, I can be all over the place and I dig that. 

 

#2 is doing Basketball this time. (Again)  He was doing a fair job in guarding Mr. Jeff.

While his sister (see her there in her glasses?) is helping with the Arts & Crafts portion of the show.

The lovely Kim (isn’t she purty?) Took me riding on the water cart to take pickshas and we decided we needed one of us. 

This right here though…was my favorite moment of the entire night.  The chick in the tye-dye? That’s my good girlfriend, Melissa.  Melissa would be the first to tell you she is not right.  However, she is really good at working with the Preschool aged bunch. 

She had the little chilluns in a line…walking down the hallway….snapping fingers…raising hands in the air and told the little cherubs they had “Hallelujah Hands”  and she WASN’T TRYING TO BE FUNNY.  Serious as a holy heart attack.  Nearly made me stop, drop and roll (and wish I had Depends on)

Oh and something else that happened, that was not documented…I did my annual cartwheel.  I can still do it! 

Tupelo ‘A Go-Go

I can’t help but think some of the inspiration for the New Main Street Singers in A Mighty Wind came straight from this. Maybe?

Hit It, Pearl

Go here and when the choir starts singing, see if you can pick out my sister amongst the Church Lady Chick Sing-ahs.  (Go to the one that says “Intimacy With Christ.” The preacher prays then they start singing)

She looks like a Baptist goddess, does she not? (Is that sacreligious?  Eh…if it is, it is.)  Do keep in mind that is the same person who used to pin me down, acting like she was gonna spit in my face.  Don’t let that sweet spirit fool you, people.  Heh.  Wonder if the Church Folks are aware of this?  I wonder if she’s repented for that?
