Poker Stars

Once again the sweet sound of the shuffle and deal has pulled the family poker greats to the table.They say family bonding is best done around the dinner table....I disagree. It is done with bottomless lime Margaritas in the company of 3 strangers who believe they are checking, calling and raising with friendly (we send drinks) Quebecois femmes. We two are our own entertainment, believing we are funnier than Detective Cousteau and not noticing if no one else at the table is amused. Online poker allows you tell a tale that no one can verify. For years I was Madonna, a freelancing Midwife on call in the wilds of Alaska. A calling that caused me to leave tables with out warning,was responsible for my lack of follow through on bets and made my language very colorful because of long hours spent in the company of rough and rugged air ambulance pilots.In summary online poker is a super way to spend a sleepless night, make a little money, meet an abundance of 15 year old boys masquerading as women with very large breasts and bond with your family.

Secret Project

I have been working on a project that I have kept under wraps for weeks and weeks. It is way out of my comfort zone being that is pretty, trendy and OMG....highly functional. Never the less Today I will take it out of the shadows ; lay it gently into the light box and photograph it .....and yes share it with the likes of you. My fear is that you will find it horribly repulsive or......everyone will want one and as you know, I cannot make 2 the same of anything....learned that with the production of my children.....stand by.....

Pay it forward

He could of been my son,except I only have girls, or he could have been your son. It really wouldn't of mattered as he was some ones son. We passed him 3 times throughout our girl's day outing to the Jam and Sweet Shop, various Thrift Shop places and finally an early dinner at my fav...The Blind Angler on the beach. Maybe 17-19 years old, really dirty and worn out looking, and carrying a ratty duffel and a well cared for guitar, he looked tired and hungry. He came into the restaurant and was rushed out to the deck where he could read through the menu without offending the delicate sensibilities of us the paying customers. Stares all around and whispers as we all regarded this long hair dreadlocks blond boy....someones son...some with disdain, some with curiosity and others with empathy. He shook his head, thanked the owner and made his way out to the front, first asking to use the washroom.......when he returned much to his surprise his dinner was waiting for him in the far corner of the deck.....any other players of much fun.

More about scam scum

Let me just say again how evil those Scumbags are that hack into Facebook and access your contacts and primary email contact information then wipe the files.Reporting the crime to FB leads to a pleathora of complications starting with lock out of your FB account.Then ensues the neverending volley of messages between moi and the FB Team. I am so done. I can go no further. I am going to close my FB account,wait I can't cause I'm LOCKED OUT %$#@.I am going to the beach to regain my sanity, talk softly to my poor puppy and say I'm sorry to the man in my life for the rants of the last 3 days.

Putting romance into a marriage

It's not the naked man under the apron....though let's think about that for a moment............hmmm. It's not encouraging others in the room to participate in the kitchen cleanup jobs while the hubby shows off his clicker moves.It is not taking the household out for dinner though that should never be discounted as a possible remedy and it is not cancelling the evening meal for cheap Tuesday at the movies where popcorn is the meal of the night. The real turn on is the man who gets up first from the table with dishes in hand. The sound of water running as he rinses and places dishes in the dishwasher and the realization that leftovers are being dealt with in an established household manner.That dear readers is my ultimate turn on and THAT is amazingly what happened after dinner with friends last night.....impressively HOT

Subject: Hi

Hope you get this on time, I made a trip to Aberdeen, Scotland and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and credit cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for me, I can't have access to funds without my credit card, I've made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I can give back as soon as I get in.I really need to be on the next available flight.

I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me. You can reach me via email or on Blue Island hotel front desk phone, the numbers are, +447031804805 or +447031804806.

I await your response

Church...Catholic dinner theatre

My mind does have a tendency to wander when quiet/bored, and did so with enthusiasm at Mass last nite. I was fortunate enough to have a front row seat and saw what Father Dave did not.....a Probie, 8 yr old,Altar Server, having forgotten the wine goblet, chose to sneak behind father at the Altar and very stealthily slide it in place. Loved the big grin and fist pump that followed. All of this was accompanied with appropriate singing by the congregation, an upbeat Amen, Amen, AHHHAmen....then came the bonus round of the nite.... The lady behind me had a terrific voice, with a distinct country western twang and before you knew it the group of us surrounding her all started singing like natives from Mississippi. Mass is so entertaining some days....mea culpa....mea culpa....mea maxima culpa.....

I am living on a prayer most of the time; particularly since a certain bump on the head left me "addled". The loving term Laurie, aka Tangible uses to explain my "creative ways to others. To set the record straight let me state my philosophy of my use of the English language in.. well, English. I do not believe it is MY responsibility to use spell check. If my trademake style of prose offends, please use Tools, (yes I do know it exists) and correct. Perhaps you are one of "The Others",with the belief that those over a certain golden age should be seen and not heard or in Tangible and BFF's case NOT to both. Finally since the affore mentioned head injury, I do hear voices, music,and static as background noise to life and have decided to make it work for me and speak in the lyrics Of the god, Jon Bon Jovi when ever possible. This will be my one and only explanation for "my ways". I plan to hold on to what I've got...Its my life and I'm not going to live forever...I just want to live while I'm alive...ITS MY LIFE! Oh and the guy I cut off today, then chose to speak clearly to him about his driving!!

Dear Tangible/ fair weather Blogger

Just a gentle's been 2 months....your readers are waiting.....

Blog. a noun....
a blend of the term web log)[1] is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites.[2]

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (art blog), photographs (photoblog), videos (video blogging), music (MP3 blog), and audio (podcasting). Microblogging is another type of blogging,
