See if you can GUESS where I was on
Here's a hint!
I have to tell you a bit of the back story.
Grab a cuppa coffee or your
vodka drink of choice,
sit back and read.
Kris & I "met" online blogging and we
"connected" on many levels,
love of home, love of family,
love of all things pretty.
One day out of the clear blue
A MAN CALLED ME.
I didn't recognize the number and debated
on whether to answer.
A voice that I didn't recognize said-
How would you like to come down here?
WEAR A NIGHTGOWN!
BRING SOME $1 BILLS!
BRING 5 LOTTERY TICKETS
I WILL PICK YOU UP AT THE MOTEL
OF YOUR CHOICE!
What went through my mind---
Hmmm...Axe murderer looking for a mark?
MANY other things went through my mind.
(Actually he offered to let me stay with them
but I didn't want to put that on Kris)
He wanted to surprise Kris with ME
As I walked into the house
~which, let me tell you, her pictures
do NOT do justice to her house-
you have to see it in person to
really appreciate it~
I came in through the back door
as Terry pretended he forgot his wallet
so he could drop me off...
I held a gift bag high up so it covered my face.
Kris was watching me-
and it took her just a few seconds
to realize that it was
Nana Diana-a real person in real life time!
You can read her 'take' on it here.
We were like BFF's from the first moment on.
Okay- first off- my hair---
I had tried to neaten it up
by pulling part of it
up and back...
yeah---well- you can see how well that worked out.
Terry said he recognized me in the parking lot by
ALL THAT WHITE HAIR! lol
Kris is even prettier in person than the picture shows!
WHAT A PARTY!
First of all - the FOOD!
And did I mention her friends
MIGHT BE CRAZY?
This one seemed to ZONE OUT
right in the middle of
I won't name her because
I don't want her family
to put her in
THE HOME (yet).
The lady next to her (Sandy)
was wearing a blinking necklace all night.
Luckily, I am not seizure prone because
I sat next to her---
We partied in Terry's
(much to his distress)
I won't mention that someone,
who shall remain nameless, thus, blameless,
might have broken one of his shelves off the wall.
Not that the party got wild, or anything,
Kris had gifts & drawings-
the gifts that were exchanged
went to benefit a
CHARITY OF THE GIVER'S CHOICE!
It was a wonderful night!
I am SO glad that I showed up in
All that was missing was the
POLE DANCING FIREMAN!
Although Kris assures me that he
does that at home when they are alone...
which sets THIS BOY a'howlin'....
And that's all I'm gonna say about THAT!
Thank you, Kris, for a wonderful,
I am coming next year and bringing
ALL MY GIRLS
You can blame Terry for this WHOLE MESS!~
