Memorial Day. It makes me think of all the people we've lost over the years. The first one that comes to mind is my mother. She died of a heart attack brought on by an ashma attack. She was only 46. She was the funniest & most loving woman I've ever known. She not only raised us as a single parent for many years but took in foster children. Because she said everyone deserves good memories and she hoped to leave some good memories in childrens lives that may not have any. She identified with needy kids cos she was raised poor. Mom had a hard life. She worked in a plastic company without any kind of face protection. They said the small particles of plastic floating around was what damaged her lungs. When I was a kid she would tell me to duck down in the car when she wanted to flirt. I never knew her father, he passed away long before I was ever conceived. Her mother is the only blood grandparent I ever knew. My dads parents were also gone before I was born. The next one is Waistdog. A well loved blogger that recently died of a heart attack as well. Also a very funny guy. I didn't know him but always enjoyed reading his rants & hilarious posts. When I was young & looking for a husband the first guy I ever was engaged to died suddenly. It was never revealed to me what they thought killed him. I finally married TRR. Who fell asleep in the car one morning waiting to go hunting. His favorite pasttime. It was a chilly morning & he layed down in the car to catch a few winks before daylight & left the car running. He had taken the back seat out of the little car while he was restoring it. The fumes seeped into the car & his dreams. For awhile I wondered if every guy I got involved with had any chance at having a life after hooking up with me. One of the next 3 is still alive. From there the list just grows & grows. Memorial day should last for at least a week & you should get that entire week off with pay. You'd never have time to visit all the graves you would like in one day. And you need all your money to buy flowers for each grave. So, in dedication to my Mom...I miss you & I love you. xoxoxox

happy memorial day all.

i live in an area that the 17 year cicada's have erupted. talk about loud. these things come in droves and they make so much noise u can't hear urself think. i just watched a wasp attack a cicada. poor cidada has no control for awhile when it comes to flying & landing. so, he took off right into a wasp. pissed him off right now & immediately the fight was on. of course, nobody won cos the cicada's body is a hard armor kind of thingy & the wasp couldn't sting him. so, the fight ended with the wasp just flying off. but it was funny to watch & of course, i was pulling for the

G'Day All,
I'd like to apologize for my not blogging. But!!! Have u ever had one of those years? (And mind u it's only May.) It feels like one of those years already. I don't dare ask "what next" or "could it get any better?" Because I can honestly say u just never know what life is gonna throw at u. Does anyone out there identify with this? Life just keeps getting better. Wanna hear my woes? Well, ur here so now please just listen to the craziness of my world. I received a letter from the Drivers Bureau. A random request for proof of insurance. (did u know they did this?) On a car that I own that has been broke down since around July of 2003. I have to have this car legally tagged due to rules of the community that I live in. But, not driving it I assumed I didn't need insurance. (I cancelled it in Aug.) So, I had to prove that it was not operable during the time they requested the proof of insurance for. Well, this has taken well over a month to get straightened out. With several letters, including proof of insurance on my current car, and a print out of what the diagnostic machine said was wrong & a letter head from a reputable mechanics shop stating that the car was absolutely inoperable. That finally done I waited for another 3 weeks to hear back on their decision of the paperwork I submited. And yes, my license & plates were safe from suspension. The very next day I receive another letter from the same Drivers Bureau that states again my license & plates need to be relinquished due to an accident (Hubby) that hasn't been rectified. This is too bizaare. This accident has been taken care of well over a year ago. Crazy but now I have to start all over again & prove that this is all 'paid in full'. But instead of them doing all the research I have to dig out all the proof that I have & u tell me, where is all that paperwork. I'd also like to point out that I have 15 days to get this together & I don't check my mail very often. It's always just bad news anyway. Needless to say, I have 8 days to
a: find the paperwork
b: copy enough bull shit to confuse them &
c: prove once again that I don't deserve to lose my driving privledges. Hubby has been pms-ing for a few monthes now. He's in a 'SELF' mood. Self absorbed, self centered & self righteous. Jeez, it's way too late for me to be awake. I'm gonna have to edit this & add to it in a very near future.
Sorry, gotta go to sleep.....
