Miss Piggy

I’m not sure how old our Miss Piggy is in people years, but I think she must be a teenager around 15. She is still sweet and polite, but she is sporting a radical new hair style, a MOHAWK and I am wondering what comes next. I’ve read that even these innocent little pot-bellied pigs can transform into feral hogs in a matter of weeks! Has she met her dream Javelin while rooting around the fields? Will I see her with a family of marrinitos? No, I think she is happy to slop here at the Rockin’ P. Besides she would never give up  her treats from Grandmother……Mopiggy

Just Something Silly To Lighten Things Up A Bit

I love all animals, duh! Bugs, included, scorpions not so much, but I am more a dog and pony person rather than a cat in my face person. Tom especially could live without them, especially inside ones. But  anything that reminds us of Daddy Bub is gladly welcome in our house. In this case a really spoiled cat named Kirby. We brought her home last December and she fit in just great, litter box and all. To keep the dogs from stealing her food, I kept her bowl on the bed side table. She would reach up to get a bite several times a night until she realized it was much easier to wake me up so that I could put the bowl on the bed beside me and give her a massage while she ate. Just fine until we went out of town for a few days. Now she has to be on the pillow next to me or on me with her bowl next to her all night. Last night, I forgot about the bowl and tipped it into my face. Luckily I was able to scoop most of it back into her bowl without even waking Tom.

Calling All Prayer Warriors!!!!

My husband Tom’s brother Russell Parish is in great need of all our prayers! He was airlifted to the University of Louisville Hospital last night after passing out at his home in Indiana. He is extremely anemic and has cancer which is still being identified. We can do this!!!!!

Love and thank-you!

Happy Birthday Leicalady!

Leicalady, the blog, that is celebrated her birthday in Chicago. It all began one year ago when Peyton set off for his National Youth Forum in Phoenix for TEN DAYS. To survive without mi Hijo menor…..I thought better of traipsing around the countryside with gas upwards of  four bucks a gallon. My time was cheap if not free just sitting on my butt, which got bigger, by the way, but it is what it is……Why are ducks so damn cute when they waddle and humans not so much?

Shaw’s Crab House

One of the best things about the fantastic dinner at Shaw’s where  Jen and Kevin’s rehearsal dinner was held was the fact that Kevin was able to enjoy everything on the menu! He had been allergic to seafood  for years, but had been recently tested and declared  free to attack and eat Jaws if necessary. Grilled salmon,pasta with spinach,asparagus and broccoli, King crab legs,crab cakes,shrimp and an awesome salad and bread and the band was incredible. John Kattke, Brother John played such an amazing variety,  I  had to look to make sure that  another group had not replaced them. Shaw’s is located at 21 E. Hubbard. Can’t wait to go back!!!!
