In my birthday box from mom was this Dammit Doll with the attached poem:
When you want to throw the phone
or kick the desk and shout,
Here's a little Dammit Doll
You cannot do without
Grasp it firmly by the legs
and find a place to slam it,
As you whack the stuffing out, yell
DAMMIT, DAMMIT, DAMMIT
Elsie is very upset that I am even remotely considering adopting this cutie pie:
15 pounds of Italian Greyhound. He was running wild around an apartment complex in Tampa and Liz rescued him. We haven't met him yet but are told he is very sweet. He even knows the 'tell me a secret' game... How is that possible?
It would seem sensible that employees are not getting paid for today, correct?
Or, are the offices closed just to cut down on A/C and other utility bills?
OH YEAH - ya know, Halloween is HUGE around here. I mean, I've seen more witches, spider webs, orange hefty bags stuffed with who-knows-what, mini lights, etc. than ever. Maybe Hillsborough County is attempting to make this a holiday... The news just reported that emergency personnel, fire fighters, and trash picker-uppers don't hae the day off.

I haven't booked any rooms for Tuesday and Wednesday night. I may find myself at a CASINO! I'm open for suggestions.
While in Memphis I also plan to go to:
- The Civil Rights Museum
- Gibson Guitar Factory
- Sun Studio
- WC Handy Home
- Elmwood Cemetery (they are wonderful arboretums!)

I friended friends and I de-friended some who were not truly friends. I am happy with the renewed friendships with peeps all over the country and from my childhood.
I will miss reading all about their escapades and various states of being. Hopefully they will keep in touch via email, snail mail, and phone.
Sometimes I wish I could go totally off the grid but I know that is not possible... I'm addicted to the internet and all that it offers. That's the first step, correct?

The first was at the Lightning game.... the second below was spotted at the roller derby bout.
I'm on the lookout now for these cool hawks. How in the world do they do that??? I need some of that freeze hold/glue stuff for my hair!
