Memorial Day 2010

Flags For Fallen Soldiers
At the cemetary today

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. — General George S. Patton

Last Week

How to get rid of a couch in 1 hour and 52 minutes.

New love seat inhabited by animals. 

Found Savannah Grass.   I've been looking for it forever.  
Thanks to Home Depot.

I saw it in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.  It will sprout ruby shoots sometime.  (I Hope)

Found another pretty plant while I was there.

Planted a flat of my favorite begonias.

A beautiful sunset

Have A Beautiful Weekend!

Friday Night Lights Finally

I admit it.  I am a TV junkie.  I have become involved in so many shows and would be LOST without my DVR.  Speaking of LOST they have me tightly wrapped around their finger with that one.  I'm thinking they are all redeeming themselves now from their wayward ways prior to the crash. It's so confusing.  I would like to see a happy flash sideways ending for all of them. 

Some of my other favorites are Glee, Saving Grace, Flashforward, Heroes, Ghost Whisperer, Medium and now Happy Town which believe me is not Happy and not for everyone.  As far as reality shows I like American Idol which I think this might be our last one. ( Lee and Crystal are my favorites) . Dancing With The Stars is fun to watch and right now they are all really good.  Of course Survivor has to be on the list.  Please, please vote Russell off!

Tom is more in to news and golf.  Mom prefers classic movies and the older series like Mash and especially Andy Griffith.  I have to agree with her on that one.  Who doesn't love Pa, Opie and Barney! 

One show we all like is Friday Night Lights. It is just the best show when it comes to acting and story line.  The characters are so believable.  It's more about life and relationships in a small town than it is about football.  We have been watching it since it started years ago and it just keeps getting better and better. 

Over a year ago, my friends Becky and Christie and I went to lunch at a local Mexican hot spot in Dallas called El Taquito.  It doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is great.  It's usually packed with people and this day was busy as usual. 

While we were waiting on our food, in the door walked a very tall man and it didn't take Becky and I long to figure out who he was.  It was Buddy (Brad Leland) from the show.  He sat at the table right behind us and we immediately turned into silliness. 

Buddy from the show.

With the cute coach.

He was so gracious and didn't mind the attention at all.

Christie, Me, Brad and Becky.

The show started again on NBC last night.  It did not disappoint.  This is going to be a really interesting season.

Try It.
