Friday Freestyles

Friday!

And I do not have much to say.

Because it is Pay Day. And as usual on Pay Day,  the blinds of my mind are at half-staff.

I haven't been really posting because I could not get pictures to load up. It takes some 3 hours for them to transfer into my email for some odd reason.  My patience ain't strong enough to be waiting around... and around... and around.

Nope.

This has been an interesting week.  Another hurricane has hit. Our president and North Korea's president are trading verbal jabs like we are out in the schoolyard somewhere. Sigh.

One great thing happened this week.  Scoot Booty was discharged from the hospital! He spent a month and a day in there.

He knew something odd was going on. 
 We stopped by my house and I held him while my sister got her stuff together. (She'd been staying with me since Irma).

His britches were too big!
 The nurse said, "Put them pants on him. It's not like he's walking anywhere!"

Really. Just needed to keep him warm.

 And as you can see, Big Mitch was a bit amazed... and confused.
 LOL!!

Dear Justin, I am glad you are growing enough to be home. Be good! 

I am looking forward to the weekend. My old book club chose Atlanta Noir for their book of the month. So I will  attend that meeting. It will be so nice to see everybody. I hope they liked my story.
And I hope I can answer their questions.

It has been a beautiful week with NO rain. I hope that continues into the weekend.

I will not put up a ratchet song. Nope. I will put up a song with a ratchet album cover, though.

"Sweet Sticky Thing" by Ohio Players.



I love that song because it is half instrumental and half vocal. And it's near 10 minutes long! Wow!

But I do remember my mother having the Ohio Players in her record collection. And how embarrassed I was to look at those album covers when I was 7 years old.

Too bad there isn't good original music out like they had back in the day some 40 years ago. Humph.

I am hoping for a great weekend. If I don't have anything else, I have the ability to HOPE. And I will not let that go.

You do the same! Don't  let your hope go either!

Semi-Wordless Wednesdays


It is a shame that it has come down to this...

Friday. Finally. Still feels like a Tuesday to me.

It might be October before I get my head straight concerning what day it is. This picture right here describes the past 2 weeks of weather craziness.


Katia to the left, Harvey in the middle, and Irma to the right.

Such devastation from these storms. Wow. Who would've thought so much could occur in such a short period of time. Wow. The wonders of nature... and climate change.

Since my conference was canceled due to the craziness left behind hurricane I have a free weekend!

So I hope to get some things done around the house, as usual.  This is a simple hope. These days, I am giving myself permission to hope. (That is a food-for-thought driveby in there somewhere).

Song of the Week. Something STRANGE. I hate mumble rap, but I am a bit fascinated with this song. I think it is due to a writing class I'm taking right now.

Warning: You may or may not understand what Young Thug is saying. And after watching it a few times, I found it gruesome. But it is the best piece of mumble rap I have heard (Note: this ain't saying much). And the language. Ugh. Why we gotta cuss so much!



The first thing I thought when I saw the two little girls was "This here is a play on that movie The Shining." 




And The Shining scared the cheese out of me when I was 12 years old. YIKES! I still can't look at the movie, all these years later.


But it is a good piece of horror rap, even though it is that silly mumble rap. And I think my genius IQ just went down by a couple of points after watching it.

Did I burn your eyes out with that video?  You know I have to do something little ratchet here and there! 

So with that said, you have a GREAT weekend! On purpose!
