Ugly Betty brings on Goodbyes

I thought it was great. I couldn't have pictured a better ending. I like the somewhat assumption that Daniel and Betty end up together.

I did feel that when Betty said good bye to her family it might get sappy. It did for me, as she was going down the line of family members, I started picturing her dad on the end, and I started sobbing. Of course, her dad was the last person she said good bye too. Memories came flooding back to my mind of my last day of living in South Georgia and in the only home I have ever known and moved 6 hours away. I remember saying goodbye to my dad, I remember knowing I could never tell him everything I wanted to say, so I left a letter laying on his pillow for him to find later, and I remember the tears.

I hate good byes, I really wish I never had to say goodbye to my dad on that day or on the day he died. It's really until we meet again.

Okay, whoa....I didn't think that talking about a TV show would bring about such emotions. See that's the funny thing about TV. It's meaningless shows, but they stir about personal emotions and relate able experiences.

Oh well, farewell "Ugly Betty", your craziness, fashion, eccentric story lines will be missed.

National Rifle Association

I'm a card carrying member of the NRA! Yessiree!

I got an email about joining an NRA wine club.....YAY...Wine and Guns!! whoop whoop!!
Sign me up!!! My first shipment will get here in about 1 to 2 weeks. 6 bottles for $6.99 a piece, what a discount. I can't beat that for a good bottle of wine at my local Harris Teeter.

So for all the liberals that think that the NRA is bad and want to take away gun rights...Suck it....I am going to sip wine and knock a deer off it's feet, and what you gonna do about it...NOT A DAMN THING!!!

Uncork, pour, swish, sniff, and sip, sip, sip, sip. Don't forget pow, pow, pow!

Glee-fully broke down

So, i just broke down today, and watched my very first episode of the hit show "Glee". Well I must say I was impressed. They included a sing off from one of my favorite musicals/plays (only one I have ever seen on Broadway), Wicked. I love me some WICKED!!! Green, green, everywhere!!
It had a good message about accepting people with handicaps, and ended with a number to "Proud Mary" where everyone "keeps on rolling down the river"

Okay, I broke down and I liked it!!

Dachshunds and Wheelchairs

Today in the office, we some how got on the topic of houses. I mentioned that when I was house shopping, I was very interested in a ranch home (which I ended up purchasing). One reason I did this, is because of my dog. I have a Dachshund named Gus. He will be six this November. Ever since I got him, the veterinarian has been clear that I must keep him at a good weight. I have also heard that it isn't good for them to jump off higher places or climb stairs (enter the reasoning for wanting a ranch). It's so hard to keep my little guy from jumping off steps or ledges, etc, but I can keep him from having to climb stairs on a daily basis.

Dachshund's tend to have a lot of back trouble as they get older, and need very expensive surgery (need to start saving now). They may have to be in a wheelchair post op also. I watched these videos a while ago, and wanted to share. If you have a wiener dog, you may tear up, because it's really sad, but it's also kind of cute and funny, as some of these dogs don't know it's even back there. We should learn from this....don't let bad experiences keep you down, just roll with the punches!

So if you have a doxie, try to keep them lean and safe!
