When I was younger, much younger I thought the music my parents listened to was so "out of style". I listen to that same music now.

I had an allergic reaction yesterday evening. Let's access the situation:
Did I have breathing issues? No.
Was there an aggressive need to claw my skin to shreds? No.
Did my tongue swell? No.
Was I bitten by a bug, spider, a flying something? Not that I could tell.
Was my skin hot? Yes.
Did I eat something that might have triggered this? Maybe, 2 Girl Scout Cookies - Caramel Delights.
I checked my blood pressure - 130/84.
I checked my blood sugar - 81.
Did the rash affect any other parts of my body? No.
Are those flecks of brown part of the reaction? No.
Did I find my man friend entwined with another woman? No.
Did I discover my nostrils are uneven? Hell yes. Damn it. If I didn't worry enough about everything else already -- I had to discover my uneven nostrils. Not a surprise really since I dislike my nose. Only now, I dislike it even more & I can't believe that is even possible.
Am I back to normal this morning? Define normal.
See for yourself. Sorry for the sideways effect:

Gave way to an awesome night! My ticket to ride was for a concert at the Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach, Alabama. The stars that were shinning were Kacey Musgraves, The Eli Young Band & Kenny Chesney. Around the 4th song of Kenny Chesney's, Grace Potter appeard & sang with him You & Tequila. Near the end of the show...a special guest stepped onto the stage ----- Sammy Hagar. Thas right, the Red Rocker himself! He sang I Can't Drive 55 & Finish What Ya Started. I get starry eyed easily...but what an awesome thing! Emeril Lagasse popped up on stage & "BAM" he was gone!
My super duper magical iPhone wasn't doing anything that resembled a magic truck for taking pictures. When Sammy appeared I snuck & weaved around the best I could to get as close as I could to get a picture. To my dismay one of the Wharf's armed guards told me what I was doing was a fire hazard. Um, the seats are metal, the ground is concrete & its an amphitheater that was just drenched by torrential rains 2 hours before hand. The only fire hazard I could see was the heat rising in my face for her interfering with my paparazzi like stealth to get
on near the stage.
As I was making my way back to my seat from crawling around the front of the stage, a guy stopped me & said "Van Hagar woooo!" "I bet Van Halen is coming up next"...I tried to focus & will them out on stage & while what I wanted what this weirdo was saying to come true I knew it wasn't.
Again, it was awesome!

Funny how some of the things my parents & grandparents told me as I was growing up still stay with me & of course there is all the other stuff I've never thought about again.
Here are a few of those words of remembrance:
You can't hold the puppies/kittens too much or they'll get sick ~~ Mom
Don't stand on your head like that, your liver will turn over ~~ Mama Cooper
If you lose a tooth & you don't stick your tongue in where it came out, a silver tooth will come back in its place ~~ Granny
Don't swallow your gum it will make your insides stick together ~~ Mom
Don't roll your stomach like that you'll get worms ~~ Granny
Don't sit so close to the TV, it'll ruin your eyes ~~ Everyone
If you are going to do it, do it right ~~ Mama Cooper (she said this to me when we were making her bed)
Always eat a little breakfast. It will make your day so much better ~~ Mama Ruth
Always smile, it makes people wonder what you are up to ~~ Mama Ruth
Honey, I love anything that is a V-neck, 3 quarter length and multi-colored ~~ Mama Ruth
When you buy something pleated, make sure the pleats turn in, not out ~~ Mama Ruth
When you put on a shoe you can always tell a designer shoe from a cheap shoe ~~ Mama Ruth
"Why are you dragging your feet?" "Because I am lazy?" "No, because you're fat." ~~ Dad
If that frog pees on you, you'll get a wart ~~ Mom, Nannie, Granny
I swannie ~~ Nannie
In the reckly ~~ Nannie (her response to someone asking what time someone would be coming to pick them up)
Woooooo! ~~ Nannie (her response to you calling her name if she wasn't in the same room with you)
Another thing I think about is their names. I remember when I asked Mama Cooper what her name was & I just couldn't believe what she told me: Lucy. Her name was Lucy! Lucy was the name she gave every doll of mine.
I've mentioned before that I was beyond blessed to have so many parental units in my life:
My Parents ~~ Estil Jr. & Marsha
My Parents today ~~ Estil Jr. & Louise, Marsha & Bob
Roy & Dorothy
Estil & Ruth
Great Grandparents ~~
Jack & Helen
Oliver & Lucy
George & Wilma
Great Great Grandparents ~~
So I took a stroll down memory lane on a Friday afternoon while at work...I could be doing so much worse!

Do you believe this? 4 percent of Americans do. Shape shifting lizard people are controlling the government? Uncanny that it is a shape shifting reptile theory when most politicians are thought to be snakes anyway, right?
Are you concerned about the North Korea missile crisis? Is it a crisis? I mean, what can I do to prepare? I can't build an underground nuclear fallout bunker in a few days. Hell, even if I could I doubt I have the financing to do so. Really, what can I do about it? Reading about it makes me worry & worrying has never solved any of my problems.
A whopping 13% of Americans believe that Barack Obama is the anti-christ. The anti-christ is supposed to be a healer of nations, handsome, well-spoken. I do know from my own eyes & ears that President Obama isn't two of these. Some believe that Tom Cruise is the anti-christ. I'll buy that but I will still watch his movies, new & old.
What about diseases? Do you believe that government manufacturers diseases? We do have biological warfare, right, or is it bio-terrorism? Small pox is a form of _____________ ? Anthrax is _____________?
See what happens when my sleep pattern is disturbed? Or in other words, see what happens due to my lack of sleep? I am basically destroying the world!
