Can't She Stay....Just A Little Bit Longer ???

Dancing with the Stars
I watched the first season
then I fell off
I would catch it now and then
hear the random bits on entertainment news .....
This season I picked it back up
there is just NOTHING on TV right now
I normally watch tivo'd episodes of Sanford and Son
The Jeffersons
Good Times and
Three's Company
I love love love 70's television.....anyway
I added Dancing with the Stars to the line-up to keep myself in at least ONE present day show

I Love to watch the dancers....
their abilities amaze me
I love the colors and the sparkle in the costumes
I have my faves and I have my not so faves (Denise Richards)
Much to my dismay (not) poor poor Denise was voted off last night

Moon Pie

I want you to meet Moon Pie are correct to recall from a previous post that I am not a cat person
Don't hate em'....just don't love em either .... but Moon Pie.....yea...I kinda like her.

My grandpa has a hardware store which has been in business for 58 years....I brag on that every chance I get....I think its just awesome...good ole fashion hardware store...with a bucket of free gum on the counter...and a drink machine out by the wood-shop where you can still get a drink for 50 cent.....and YES in this economy...and YES with a Lowes and a Home Depot within 5 those are like cuss words in our family....Home Depot and Lowe's......Ewwwww.

and along with that good ole' fashion service and a also get Moon Pie.
We sell moon pies (and if you are from the south...yes we have RC in the drinkbox)...the construction workers love to grab em' a moon pie .
Well once upon a time when the moon pie box turned up empty.....Graby whom we now call Moon Pie took it over. A little background on Moon Pie real quick. We are a lumber yard as well as a hardware store...and with that comes its good to keep a cat or 2 or 10 around. One day one strolled up....and she had babies and its been goin on and on since then...we now have ...ohhhhh.....10 or more.
Well Moon Pie is the daughter of the late Mama Goldie...the first cat we ever had.
We feed them all each day and they are well cared for. Moon Pie is the inside cat.....she STAYS in this Moon Pie box. ..which sits up on the counter...front and center.
Each and every brawny...tough...dirty....and sometimes darn good lookin man that walks thru our doors....stops...and coos...and talks to....and scratches Moon Pie. She is truly livin' the good life.
Now....aren't ya glad ya got to meet Moon Pie.....
have a happy day
