Thursday Thoughts
Well today was another day of "T-Ball Coach Lusting". I Suwannee! That guy is just plain hot with his long ponytail and flip flops. Thank goodness t-ball is almost over. Next week is the night game and J gets his trophy.

My mom has bronchitis. She has the worst luck when it comes to doctors though. What's up with some doctors these days? She went in to the University Medical Clinic (University of Alabama) to get some antibiotics for her bronchitis (my dad was diagnosed with it last week) and was told that all the doctors were on their lunch break. All the doctors. And to make it worse, they were all in the back of the building and all of them refused to see her. They took a 2-HOUR lunch break. Now, this isn't advertised on the office hours. You would think a clinic would be open for walk-in patients even during lunch hours...always have someone on duty. But no! All those stuck-up doctors had to take a 2-hour lunch together. My mom walked out and refused to go to that clinic ever again. I don't blame her.

After t-ball today, the kids had a pizza party. One of those things I noticed and just had to mention was, why is it that Chicago is the only place that cuts their pizza into squares? I had never seen pizza like that until I moved here. I just don't get it. Pizza should be in wedges, in triangles, in slices. My husband loves Chicago style pizza with it's cracker-like crust. Me? I like a soft doughy crust. Why eat crispy-hard crust? Might as well eat some ketchup on a cracker.

We need rain! The paper said that this is the driest summer in over 50 years. Could be much more since I don't remember exactly, but my lawn is crispy brown. We are on water restrictions so no lawn watering at all. Only hand watering flowers. Yesterday we had some thunderstorms go through, but it only rained for a couple of minutes. More would be nice.

Can't think of anything more to say right now. I have gotta get back in the writing mode soon. I am getting behind.

Y'all come back and read some more when you can!

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
