Yeah Bay-B

Let’s get this Stupid Blog Party started, up in here. There’s some left over spaghetti and crackers on the table over there. Fuzzy navels on the ottoman slash coffee table in the living room, but I must caution you on possible toenail clippings clinging to the fabric. Yeah, well we all can’t be excellent housekeepers ALL the time…now can we? Okay, the bathroom is off limits, there is a port-o-let on the front lawn and y’all can use the hose IF you feel that you must wash up. Please enjoy this year’s Stupid Blog Party by visiting our other guest, chat amongst yourselves and don’t forget to tell us how happy you are to be here and how much we have impressed you with our…with our…err Stupidness.

Yes be prepared to be dazzled (not to be confused with a BedazzleR) with our little story. I don’t know about y’all but I do hope I don’t rattle on too much after all there are other guest to mingle with. Oh please be sure to try the Humus, my family won’t eat it. I see some of you brought your own snacks (lol I typed snakes at first) and drinks, now don’t be greedy share. I said SHARE!

~~I suppose if YOU want to make this a “Fancy” party feel free to dress up, otherwise attire is optional~~

Okay so y’all my dear internets remember when I told y’all about our trip to Glen Rose and the Dinosaur tracks, blah, blah blah? Well as we were passing though town I spotted an Art Museum. I know who would have thought that they had one? But they did and I drug Beloved and Baby Girl in. Hey it was FREE! Believe it or not we actually saw some pieces by some of the same artist we saw in Savannah last Thanksgiving. Anyway Beloved and Baby Girl just zipped right through. Now between me and you I don’t think they really appreciated the art at all. I however took my time meandering (a Texas word for lolly-gagging (which is a fancy word for poking along slowly)) from room to room and then all of a sudden (feign surprise please & thank you)…

I rounded a corner and spied a painting resting on an easel. I felt happiness at the sight of it. Really this grin sorta crept across my face and then bam it was a huge smile. I felt my insides all warm and tingly. Crazy, absolutely CRAZY I tell you. I felt so silly, stupid if you will, at how seeing that painting made me feel so good. No it wasn’t one of mine, however that would have been wonderful if not funny though, thanks for asking. So’s anyway I studied the face of the old gentleman and said out (after looking around to be sure no one was watching me{wink}) “My aren’t you a dear ol’ fella? My goodness I can’t believe how happy it makes me to look at you.” Yes I really did say all that. So I glanced at the information card to find out the artist and subject. OMG! I’m telling y’all OMG! The man in the painting was Commodore (last name omitted to protect our privacy)


Hole E Mole E my dear internets ... I know why I liked him so much, it was one of those “DUH STUPID!” moments ya know? Smack yourself in the forehead even…It was my Husband! My own Beloved, only NOT, ya know cause this Commodore guy was long, way long gone, but it looked like my Beloved and in fact he was an Ancestor! I know! What are the odds of this actually happening? Okay I’ll show you the Commodore, but know this, my Beloved doesn’t have this long of a beard, nor the blue eyes and he does not wear cowboy hats and he is not as old…but otherwise it’s my man. The same face shape, the same nose, eye shape, cheeks and lips and the ears…No wonder I felt so good seeing this painting. Oh and the eyebrows are so totally the same.


I know this is just so unbelievable, but it’s a true story however Stupid it may sound. Now over to y’all, my dear internets… If the Mr. Linky doesn’t work for ya please leave a direct link to your Stupid Blog Party Post. There are some prizes. Not for everyone but for 8 lucky winners whose names will be drawn at random from those dear internets that are able to participate. And don’t forget EVERYONE that plays gets to display this year’s Stupid Blog Party Badge. You have until midnight'ish April 18 to link & play. Winners will be announced April 19.


NOW-Show-ME! SHOW ME YOUR STUPIDNESS!
