Sunday Night

Hello, It's Sunday night. I'm glad to see this weekend end and for next week to begin. January has been a challenge for us. Job change and family illness all at once. Everything will be okay, though. When feeling down, go shopping. Find the sales. It's important to be frugal but don't buy crap. There's a great sale at Marshall Fields and Ayres. Sharpen your hooves, clotheshorse, and go to town. Love, Lolo

Happy Saturday and Poem!

Hi, Everyone-- I've been on a poetry kick lately. I'm compiling a poetry book for 2006, entitled "time to write." It's dedicated to my friend Kim, who gave me a beautiful watch for Christmas. Here's a poem from the book: second hand snare drum stand words engraved on metal-- Ludwig Chicago. Have a great weekend. Love, Lolo

pink January

Hi everyone, Here's a haiku I wrote last night with our friend in mind... pink January skies paint divine memoir-- artisan's warm sunset. (Its a 5--6--6 in syllables, but still comes out to 17 syllables.) Love, lolo xoxo

A Tribute to a friend

Hi, Everyone-- I am saddened to share with you that Steve and I lost one of our friends on New Year's Night. Our friend was working that night and tried to bust a fight at a local bar. He was found outside, unconscious and not breathing. He suffered a massive heart attack at the age of thirty-six. Our other friends hosted an open house/wake in honor of him tonight. It was somber but comforting to see a house full of people who really cared about our friend. There's also a college fund set up for his twelve-year-old daughter who was present tonight. This experience reinforces two things: stay as healthy as possible. If you don't have your health, you don't have anything. And, hug the ones you love a little more; their life could be snuffed out in an instant. Love, Lolo

Tighty-Whity Tirade and Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone, Hope you had a fantastic New Year's! Here's the rundown of our New Year's Eve and New Year's Day: On New Year's Eve I started my day out right by attending taekwondo. One of my favorite classmates moved up to orange belt. I am hoping to belt up by the end of January. We went over the curriculum and that was tedious. Sometimes I still can't remember the left leg from the right! I love my instructors, though, all of them. After coming home and cleaning up, we dined at Hacienda and started out on our errands. We wanted to use up a mall certificate, so we went to the mall and bought a clue. Actually, we bought underwear! Yippee! Woo hoo! Whatever. It was very strange, when the salesperson said something like, "Lucky you, shopping here with your wife." The salesperson was a guy! Bra and undie shopping with your husband and the salesperson was a dude. It was very odd to return my unfitted bras to a man. Although he was nice,it was kin…
