Tonight two of my friends and I decided to go to a country restaurant in Ethel... That is a sleepy little town over many a beautiful hill and through rich farmlands... We took Patty's car, and we duly noted her inside car temperature was 118 degrees when we started... Throughout the drive there it gradually cooled to 112 degrees in the car... But for some reason I wasn't really all that hot... It was such fun to be out and to be having one of the Thelma and Louise and Thelma days like we used to have so many times..

Shady Peanut Lane, actually named for a long stretch of land with brush along either side, is a term coined by my grandfather... We enjoyed our summers on a little gray tractor humming through the brush counting the angus cattle and dreaming about the cool, dark, shady glen where we'd set out the double cola and cheese n' crackers packed so sweetly in a red, white, and blue celluloid pocketbook.... by my gramma.
Now that is real shade... That kind of shade cools us for the rest of our lives... That is the kind of shade that walks me through the past unbelievable 40 years since I saw my grandfather on this earth.. That's the kind of shade I fully expect to enjoy on Heaven's lawn...
Aw... who am I kidding? Change is tough for me... But it's time.

Karla from Karla's Cottage is having a tag swap. The theme is birdsong, and I absolutely loved participating in the last one, which was Wizard of Oz. This year I almost didn't get prepared, but the deadline to mail is tomorrow, and I'm ready.. with hours to spare, and I can't wait to see all the goodness she is going to wrap up for all of us who participate.

My dear friend is coming out tonight. How do you know if it's a dear friend? You call them up and say, "I want you to come out, but I don't want to cook, so stop and bring us Taco Bell...." Yum-o!.. We're going to watch the season finales of The Mentalist and The Good Wife. I taped them both in the spring... and we haven't made time to watch... I sneaked a peek. They were both cliff-hangers, of course... but nothing like Castle... Oh, my!!!! I do like my winter tv.... especially with TIVO...
Have a fun day... Don't
