I love this look of the candles. It looks so peaceful and romantic.

The adventures of Billy Bob continue.

Billy Bob at work, at church, dreaming of the beach and trying to get out of the light.

Happy and bittersweet

Well I am getting a new Ford Fusion Hybrid SE. I'm excited about getting a new car but also sad because I will no longer have a Dodge. Since 2000 I have had a Dodge Stratus. The first one was a black 1995. I traded that in and got and 2004 Dodge Stratus. I know I will be happy with the new car. But hey change is good. If they still made the Stratus I'd probably get that.

Adventures of Billy Bob

I have been taking Billy Bob on some adventures with his friend Yoda. Here are some of the pictures. My cousins 14 year old son loves it. I actually enjoy taking the pictures.

He lived on the edge and visited the cat and then went a car ride and ate at Red Lobster. He really does have fun.

Food and figures

Back in the 1990s I had lunch with a friend at Taco Bell and we got a Yoda plastic figure. Well I have had it ever since by my computer.

About 7 years ago or so I had run out to get lunch at a hot dog place for my cousin her kids and I. Well I had her son with me and he wanted a toy out of one of the vending machines. So we got a little plastic guy. See the pattern yet. Food and little figures. The little plastic guy was named Billy Bob. He was lost in their house so many times that it has been years since he's been seen. They other day looking at one old oysters and he was found. It was a great laugh.

The things we do as teenagers

Four of us thought it would be funny to toilet paper the middle school one night. Mind you were we're freshmen in high school and were not attending the middle school anymore. So we get toilet paper and we start going to town. Well 3 of us were avoiding any of the lights the school had on outside of the building. I happened to look towards the street and see a police car driving down the street. I yelled cops and duck down behind a bush as do 2 of the others. The 4th person was standing in the light just as the cop car drove by. Duh!!!!! So as soon as it past we took off running. Good thing we all had gym shoes and 1 person lived right next door to the school. We did not get caught and when my younger brother came home from school on Monday he was talking all about it. All I could do is chuckle. Then admit it was my friends and I.

Conversation with the 4 year old neice

Last week the niece spent the night. We both went to bed at 8:30 or so. She's across the hall in the spare bedroom and I'm in mine and the following conversation occurred. She did have a good point.

4 year old- Auntie Kelly
4 year old- Are you going to work to tomorrow?
Me-Yes I am
4 year old-You should stay home so you don't get your work friends sick.
Me- Honey they are already sick. So we will be sick together.
4 year old-Oh ok.
Me-Good night.
4 year-Good night.

The new year

Well last year ended with a cold a the new one did too. Sometimes I think there should be some type gap between years. I don't know what. Maybe a cliff or a small raven.

The cat was sick too. She had kidney disease and is starting to get worse. She is 17 and she has had a long interesting life. She has gone for car rides with pizza delivery guys and has followed me on walks. So I'm going to enjoy her while she's still here. I'm glad she's not suffering at the moment.
