No Darlins....Aunty Pol did not fall off the face of the planet....it only seems so .
On Sunday, the square headed boy/girl friend had a hiccup and decided that we with the oppossible thumbs were not to be allowed any access to the innertubes.
For the most part I am " Whatevs."
I have many other thingys to do while on staycation which for the most part were realized....whooo hooo for re-organizing the pantry from HELL !!!!
I can now find stuffs.
SU had a shit fit and then some about the 'puter.
GRUMPY ASS HATTAGE.
On our wedding anniversary no less.
Were steaks ( good ones too) , salad and yummies consumed ?
Did I stay the hell out of his way ?
Did SU apologize ?
Yes Indeed ~ In writing.
Was the writing bit his idea ?
A call to Comcast and a really nice guy started the road to recovery. SU did the rest and I stayed the hell out of the way so other than sound we are back.
No sound is no biggie to me right now other than this will be a pain in the ass if I want to watch anything on Fancast but on the other hand , I won't have to listen to the silly ass Farmville song either.
Other than that, Christmas was very quiet at the sister in laws....no change for MIL...but it is what it is till it ain't so there ya go.
The youngest brother spent Christmas Eve and part of the day with us which was nice since I never have my side of the family around for the holidays and it was the first Christmas we'd spent together since our mother passed away in 1981.
We get along rather well now having agreed to not argue or push each others buttons as siblings will do .
It also helps that he is friggan hilarious and gets along really well with the SU and kittys, being a kitty dad hisself.
So other than all of that , It's New Years Eve people .
I still have today and tomorrow off from the work bit and am happy as a clam at home. Stuff has gotten done within reason....no I haven't done the usual and just busted ass till I cannot walk much less straighten out the bad back I am blessed with .
I found Grandma Engwall's Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe which has eluded me for ages and whipped up a batch or 2. Of all of my recipes , this one is the one I vividly recall from childhood and while mine will never be as uniform as Mom's, they still are just as good and SU will see why it's this recipe and Brer Rabbit Molasses or nuthin by Gawd.
There is an all day Burn Notice marathon today so I get out Bruce fix Miss Lisa.....wheeee.
Be Safe and Secure tonight ...cause I want to see all of you around to infinity and beyond.

Sorry...had to go there.
Happy Friday y'all.
Thank you Lord, thank you Jeebus !
We all managed to survive the annual Holiday Par-Tay last night.
It was really lovely and no..I am not using the typical Southern Lady lovely as a substitute for God Awful.....because you know I do so worry what people think of my verbiage....NOT !
The hootenanny ( whole lotta hoot and a lil bit nanny) was held at the Crystal Ballroom of the Rice Hotel.
I have always loved the Rice..or Rice Rittenhouse as it was originally called. It was the last placce that JFK stayed overnight before Dallas and at one time was the capital building of Texas.
It has been fully restored and then parts of it are for sale lease...but you have to almost be the Sultan of Brunei to afford such digs.
Anyhoo....absolutely to die for appointments and architecture . I could have burned up a whole card with the digital on that bit alone.
Outstanding food and service BTW.
We had a great time, SU had fun as always and it was nice to be able to get a bit gussied and go out since we hadn't been out in a year .
No one died, no one needed to be killed.
Tomorrow is the party for Mrs. Crazy Cajun..her 50'th .
It starts a noon.
I've done enough cards for today...so I am going to see if I can google the Cajun version of the 12 days...if I can find it , I will post it here....y'all will die laughing.
Have a great weekend.

Dear A & E ,
I understand the need to stay current with your viewership, given that cable has made vast in roads over the last ten years.
I understand that many watch television on their computers.
I will own up to being a fan of " Gene Simmons Family Jewels."
Guilty as charged.
But this ?
Oh for shame..you who started out as the " Arts and Entertainment " channel.
This is Art ?
This is Entertainment ?
P.S. Oh hell yeah I'm gonna check it out..just for the LOL factor...with an adult bev. natch .
