Hello Wall...

This was the opening act for a one woman show called Shirley Valentine... A middle aged woman in England who has realized that at this juncture of her life it's really not what she expected...her daily routine, her invisible exsistance to her husband, her children and the monatony of it all...
This opening act just sums it up.

(Pauline Collins in the movie version)


Where's my lunch?
Where's my f**king lunch?
Big big tears
By the bright blue sea
As deep as forever
Oh Shirley, Shirley Valentine
If only mother found
What you found
I wouldn't be here, dreaming
Salutations dear listener
This is a comedy in three acts
Breakfast, lunch and tea
And they better not be late
Here he comes
Through the bordello doors
I kowtow to my pimp
I'm a good little whore
Hello wall
Nice to see you wall
Good day at the office wall
Your dinner's on the floor darling
And scrape me off the ceiling
Well I'm a mercenary wife
Where it complies
I compromise
I only wear this skin
'Cos I sinned in m'past life
I want war
And you want me
I want war
And you want breakfast, lunch and tea
On stage please, on stage, thank you.
Sweat drips off my brow
I know my lines, my moves
My place in life
And it's ticking away
I'm not going on tonight
That insecure feeling
A void of nothing-ness
I'm dripping away
Well I'm a mercenary wife
I want what money buys
I only wear this skin
Cos I sinned in m'past life
I want war
And you want me
I want war
And you want breakfast, lunch and tea 

Did you every have one of those aha moments.......This was a great one woman play and movie.  
I would highly recommend seeing it should it hit the circuit again.  
The movie is available on Amazon.

Blooming Tuesday

What would I do without the gardening guidance of my pals MPMama or see I hardly have a green thumb...actually, if truth be told, they might suggest that when it comes to gardening...I am all thumbs:)  I own it, I'm fine with it!  This spring I purchased a couple of dahlia's for the garden, pretty in pink and yellow...MPMama advised that if I cut back the flowers to the next bud, it will continue to being the good student, I did as I was told and what a very pretty bouquet it produced...
thanks for the advise!

Yesterday, after reading Noble Pig encouraging us to branch out from our usual wine ways, we loyal Chardonnay fans tried a fine Rose' was interesting and refreshing, 
however, we are not ready to jump ship just yet!

(my soon to be 7 year old took this shot:)
I don't think that puss in the middle was ready for the you?

You've Got Mail...

I am conducting a little survey...Earlier today I did a little walk/run around the neighborhood and took notice of the various types of mailboxes that the homes sport...I thought to myself, are these mail receptacles a reflection of their owners...
What does your mailbox say about you?

...Mini Me!
...Location, location, location!
...I like to be like Mike.
...Pretend I'm not here.
...In love with life.
..Don't mess with me.
...Off her rocker.

Perhaps this should be Mailbox Monday!
I'm just sayin'

I'm back..for a Friday Skywatch!

Every now and then you just need a little break...I don't know about you, but, there are days when blogging seems more like a job than fun.  I started out blogging for shitz and giggles...then all of a sudden, I am surrounded by folks that, this is their life...nothing, against that at all, I just can't commit.... So, I resume my regular life and pretend the blog isn't there...but it is and I am reminded that on some level I really do like it ...I guess the best part is reading the comments from all over the world (of course, that is on an incredible post day:)  

I guess it does take a village to make a blog...Hmmmmm, have you heard that b-4?

Here is my Skywatch....Wiggers , if you are a golfer you would have loved this course...this shot was a par 3 and you start on a hill 25 ft. higher than the hole...enjoy the view!


ps that is not my arse at the tee!
