Me too, and it's accurate.

My friend told that story while we were discussing hunters (city boys) who couldn't tell cows and goats from deer.

Huh, I always figured everything I saw in the field was a cow since everyone knows that horses have saddles.

Keep in mind I never saw a "belted" cow when I lived in OH...

Remember Mongo from Blazing Saddles? He rode a bovine...

I don't remember too much from the movie because I saw it only once, back when it came out. Of course I remember the bean scene, but just a few other scenes. Time to watch it again - I checked and it IS in our library system. Maybe after the NBA playoffs are over, at least for my team.

Speaking of playoffs, today would make most any Cleveland sports fan smile. My Cleveland Indians swept the Tigers up in Detroit. Haven't done that since 2008. Tonight, the Cavs beat the Detroit Pistons, sweeping that 4-game series. Now just to sit and wait until their opposition is done with their playoff games.

The last thing that made me smile is coming here just a minute ago.

Thanks for being with me through my recovery, sweet folks.

I'm on my way!

There has been controversy about which flags may be waved by members of the audience at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. They were not going to allow the Welsh, Sámi, or Basque flags, among others. The Welsh and the Sámi were particularly upset, since there is a Welsh contestant and a Sámi contestant.

Well, after many letters, phone calls, threats of demonstrations, and intervention by the United Nations, Eurovision has decided to allow those flags. Woohoo! Sure made me smile.

The Sámi flag:



Here's the announcement by ECS on FaceBook. But, still no apology.

Heard from both of my kids yesterday, so that was nice. While talking to Loverly, however, she said "did you get my card?" Well, we have a numerically challenged mail carrier, so I told her it hadn't showed up yet. She said it would probably show up "tomorrow".

Sitting in the kitchen today, watching "The Chew", when the door bell rings, followed by a "knock-knock" at the door. When I got to the door, a lady was in the process of putting something down on the porch floor. When I opened the door, the young woman on the other side straightened up and said "I bet these are for you". Awwww..... I have a very sweet daughter! Yeah, the boy is OK, too, but not mushy-sweet like his sis.
