Thirsty Saturday

I know - I know - I missed Thirsty Thursday...............again!  Miss Bee was busy with Miss Meg from Designs by Meg taking care of "I can't walk Nana!"  I'm sure you've all read that Nana hurt her foot and is layed up on Cape Cod with a swollen blue foot!  We had much to do while there and Nana could really use a second pair of hands and another Dr!  Clowns is all I will say!

On another note - Ms.Bee and family are getting ready to venture south ya'll!  So starting Wednesday - I will be flying South to Orlando for a visit at Disney first - while there I hope to get a blog in on the adventures of Swiss Family Explosion!  We will then head North to Pensacola to visit with family and I hope to blog more about the mess that's been made up in that area from BP.  We will be visiting with my favorite brother and sister inlaw and blog a bit from their camp!  There will be much to discuss you can be sure of that!

Here is my brother inlaw last week during a ride for the Vietnam Veteran's Wall somewhere in northern Flordia - He's really Sthrong! :)

He is the guy at the end of the video who says there is a really "sthrong secure feeling" - I think the heat got to him! 

What-eva you say Uncle Nick - we'll see YA'LL next weekend!  Prepare to qualify!

Thirsty Friday

Have you noticed my blog has been green for the last few days?  That's because my Boston Celtic's are in the Championship against the dreaded Fakers whoops I mean Lakers!   I removed Bossy's No Book Tour picture since her book tour is officially over AND....I didn't even get to visit with her because I was sick!

Check out Glen "Big Baby" Davis here last night - little drool going on there with ya Big Baby huh?

Do you know how much Boston fans despise LA fans?  I contemplated putting up the F_ _ _Kobe banner but thought better - I don't want to offend anyone with my bad language!

I will just tell you that here in Boston - Kobe and company are basically hated - because here in Boston we don't pretend to "dislike" - we are passionate and therefore - hate!  When I was a kid I used to watch Larry Bird, Keven McHale, Robert Parrish and company kick some Magic and Kurt Rambis butt - remember big Kurt with his goofy glasses?  I had family in LA and still do - they're big Laker fans - they don't know any better - and I find most LA fans really don't know alot about the game - they just like the "show" of it all.  It's all about being seen in LA!

So go Celtics - BEAT LA and beat 'em bad!

In other news I went to the Zoo the other day with 18 1st graders............I had to come home and have a drink!  Oh my I SO have an appreciation for teachers!

Tuesday Rants

Beep Beep - This is the Emergency Broadcast System - If this were an actual emergency........STOP, Wait - THIS IS AN ACTUAL Emergency - Ms.Bee is out of booze - beer and wine!  (well except for the stuff we don't like)!  Excuse me while I run down the street for some beer and wine at least!  Be right back..........

Ok - Ah - I'm back - fresh cold beer in I can continue with my Tuesday rantings........

I'll start by saying I have been pretty faithful to my new gym membership and I'm feeling better - I feel more energized, alert, and better able to handle stress - which is a daily part of my life with the 3 boys!  Ah - 2 boys and 1 grown up boy!

This morning I was watching The View and as usual wanted to reach into the TV and grab Elizabeth Hasselbeck by the throat - Lord that Beeot-ch bothers me!  What the hell is wrong with her?  They were discussing the oil crisis in the gulf and she was all over The President - what the hell does she expect him to do - wave a magic wand and make the oil stop flowing?  Ah Hello Elizabeth - what did Ole' GW do when Katrina hit the gulf?  Oh crap let's not go there - let's just say that no President is God - they can't fix disasters with the wave of a wand - you DIMwit - get off my TV!


I went to visit an old friend the other day who I grew up with.  She's a sweetheart and her oldest son who is graduating this weekend was diagnosed recently with a brain tumor.  Right after he was diagnosed she lost her Mom to cancer.

John is quite a kid, I am amazed by his courage and attitude - he was also voted Prom King the other night - how awesome is that!  His prognosis is excellent but this summer is gonna suck for him - on the bright side I KNOW he and his parents are thankful that we live where we do and he can be treated at some of the best hospitals in the world!  You go John!

Oh - one more thing:

Thirsty Thursday leads into thirsty long weekend

Miss Bee and company took to the highway for a little road trip over the long weekend........Went to visit with Mom and do a few things for her - we also had a special guest with us - Pat's girlfriend - Lindsey....

We took the kids to the beach..............and let Carson go for a swim!

We took the kids over to Martha's Vineyard and goofed around:

We watched the boats go in and out of the harbor - and had boat envy.......

And then we came back to my Mom's and watched the swans in the pond from her deck............

Last stop..............The National Cemetary in Bourne Ma to pay our respects to my Dad and all the Vets who served our country.........
