It's a Drag

Friday night Weenie, DP, Dyna, my cousin JD, and I headed to Millington for the NHRA drag races. It was a beautiful day and about 78. I had played in a golf tournament that morning and then Dyna and DP came over and we sat on the patio and drank beer until the working stiffs (Weenie and JD) got off work. It was a hard day for me.

Pro Stock.

They didn't sell regular sized beer there.

Funny cars!
Dyna is holding a spark plug she got off Melanie Troxell's car.

John Force.

Top fuel.

Afterwards, we bar hopped and ended up at Yosemite Sam's. Some of the girls decided they would sing Fat Bottomed Girls. It was bad.

Yesterday, we went out to my aunt's house to have a birthday luncheon with my mother. Of course, all the attention was paid to Gracie. Be cuter.

So tired.

Kathy Griffin

Holy shit. I'm still reeling from the Kathy Griffin show on Saturday night. She is just incredible. Two solid hours of comedy and I never stopped laughing. I am in total love with her.

After the show, we had margaritas at the Happy Mexican and then went to Mary's for some stellar karaoke.

Wow. They had to kick us out. It was super fun.

The Delta Fair

Friday night, Weenie and I were guests of Ronnie and Susan at the Delta Fest. They were sponsoring the Keith Sykes Songwriting Celebration.

It was all the free beer I could drink. Free beer = super buzzy!

Rodney Crowell was the headliner. He was great.

We had a blast. Afterwards, we had a nightcap at the Blue Monkey.

The Kettle

Last week, a coworker and I went to the Kettle for lunch. The burgers are awesome here. It's not in the best part of town and there are always characters to see.

Upon sitting down in the booth, I noticed a sign on the giant fish tank. We couldn't read it from where we were sitting so Carrie got up and went over to see what it said. When she returned and told me what it said, I called her a liar. I had to take a picture of the sign because no one would believe me.

I wonder who is stealing all the fish?

Bacon Proposes!

I'm so late posting this but I've been bizzy!

On August 16th, a couple of us met at Itta Bena around 6:00. We were going to watch the Olympics in the TV room and then go to our table at 7:45. Below is Bacon freaking out before she proposed.

Meredith has no idea.

Several of us ordered Absolut with soda and a splash of cranberry. Yummy!

Bacon ordered champagne to toast Meredith's birthday.

We all toasted and Meredith thought that was it.

That's until Bacon got on her knee and produced a tiny box.

Then we all started crying.

We moved over to our table to enjoy the lovely Susan Marshall. She had called ahead and reserved this table for us. She sang several songs for Meredith. It was awesome.

Here's Meredith listening to A Case of You.

Here's the scampi I ordered.

Then Susan joined us for a group picture.

After dinner, it was off to the yearly Leo party. So many of our friends have birthdays during August that they have one party for everyone.


It was a late night once again!
