Inspiration for today...

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Philippians 4: 4-8

New Blog I found...

If you want to see how the other half lives check out this website Catalog Living. It is hilarious...I added it to my sidebar so I can find it when I want a good laugh. The blogger takes photos from Catalogs and pretty much just makes fun of them. Check it out and you will see for yourself. If you don't find it as amusing as me - sorry to have wasted five minutes of your time!

It has been a crazy weekend...

This weekend was crazy busy...once again. On Friday night, Dan left to go up to his parents - they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday. And, I was cooking for Lisa's son's grooms dinner and then the wedding was the next day. Lots of fun stuff just too bad it was on the same weekend - couldn't celebrate any of it with my husband. Thankfully, my sister helped with the kids so that we didn't have to worry about them and could enjoy the celebrations. Then on Sunday, we packed up the kiddos and headed to Aitkin for Dan's nephew's Graduation party...

Here are some pics of the weekend....

Murder Mystery - Honky Tonk Homicide

A nasty murder investigation sure can disrupt Karaoke Night, especially when everyone in town is a suspect! It's last call for Bubba Angus, owner of Bubba's Bar. Late tonight, he was found dead in his office - shot and killed with a .22 caliber pistol. Bubba was the town snake, but who did he bite with enough venom to trigger his murder? Sissy Wesson - town Sheriff? Carney Folk - carnival worker who was just passing through town? Rowdy Lawless - bad boy with short temper and love of his bike? Dusty Diamond - Host of Karaoke Night at Bubba's with big dreams of Country Western Stardom? Rev. Jim Bob Eternity - town's beloved TV evangelist? Mary Kay Eternity - preacher's wife, struggling for her own identity? Twyla Fleetwood - Cactus Court Trailer Park owner and designer of her own nuclear holocaust bunker? OR Crystalline Daniels - the young, beautiful and promiscuous barmaid? All had motive and opportunity - only time will tell!!!

Here are all the suspects:

Here are the Bad Boys of Cactus, Texas:
Rowdy, Reverend Jim Bob, Carney, and Dusty

Here are the Bold and Beautiful Women of Cactus:
Sheriff Sissy, Twyla, Mary Kay and Crystalline

It was a night of suspense, laughter and fun with friends! And, we are not telling who the murderer is - in case you too would like to find out "Who shot Bubba Angus?"
