At the time of this writing, I am sitting under a dryer with my hair full of Reynolds Wrap. Why, you ask? Well, either my hair will be beautiful or I will have the ability to tune into every TV. or radio channel on the planet. I am eternally grateful to Chrystal for doing my hair after shop hours. I would die if someone found this to be a Kodak moment.

From where I am, I think the kids will be going to school until July. Just when us parents were beginning to relax after Christmas break was over, Wham! a two hour delay or total cancellation. Have we not endured enough punishment over vacation? I do have some questions about break while we are on the subject.

Why is it that kids feel the need to eat everything in the house on a vacation day? My boys can go through food like a tornado when they have a day off from school. I can turn my back for one second and anything on the table that I had my eyes on is suddenly gone. "Well, Mom wants the last cookie; I better go eat it before she gets it." At this rate, my diet will continue to go well.

I also would like to know why they feel it's not important to let me know when we are out of things. For example, during vacation I found out we didn't have any paper towels when someone woke up with the pukes. That was not cool. After I thanked my boys for making me aware of the outage of paper towels, I asked when we might've run out of them. The answer I received was, "oh yeah, now I remember I forgot to tell you..." Thanks boys.

Well, the bachelor from Weston did not show up for his vacation at the Taylor farm. So far, he's not earning any points with the Ladies of the Pasture by standing them up. Just when he thought he was going to score right out of the chute, he's going to have to start at first base. How's that Georgia Satellites song go, "don't give me no lines and keep your hands (horns?) to yourself..."

Kenny Chesney will be beginning his tour pretty soon. It has been announced that Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum will be joining him at some point. It has also been said that he will have a "Working Man's Section" that will include lower ticket prices. Finally! An artist who cares about how hard today's economy has hit us all. Hopefully, our new President will help America get back on its feet.

Our Ritchie County Jr. Wrestlers are geared up for their annual Longaberger sale. The sale will only be until January 26th. If you are interested, let me know. I have a catalog you may order from. The wrestlers are also having their annual Longaberger Bingo on March 20, 2009. We will have tickets to that event shortly. We thank you in advance for helping support our county wrestlers.

I would like to thank everyone who has been so supportive of my writing. All the kind words have meant so much to me. There have been times I just couldn't come up with anything to write about. Then, I would think about all those compliments and pull a story out of my sleeve. But, then that's just me. Always have a story, always have something up my sleeve and always have a Plan B. Words to live by. Ha. Ha.

My choice of the week is, (drum roll inserted here) "Unforgiven" by Metallica. If you know me very well, you are aware that I am a Metallica junkie.

Peace.
