Dear Ruth

For those of you who don't know me, growing up, I wasn't allowed to watch many mainstream movies. My grandmother recorded countless movies off of AMC, one of which was Dear Ruth. I loved Dear Ruth. It was so adorable. Why don't they make movies like they used to? Get a library card and rent/watch it.

Dear Ruth,
Thank you for your lovely post about me and my work. I couldn't ask for a better best friend. I love you, and your blog. I miss you every day. Your blog makes me feel like I am with you for a little portion of your day .... probably because I can picture you doing everything you write about.
I thought you might get a kick out of who I found when I Googled "Ruth Clark" and "Jana Bailey" - I selected each photo from the very first Facebook result:

The black and white photo is Ruth Clark, and the color photo is Jana Bailey. Yet, that'll be us alright....not. ( I hope I don't get in trouble with Facebook for publishing these pictures...)

I feel badly for not wishing my Sweet Thing, Lovey Dovey, Honey Bunches of Stinkweed a Haaaaappy Birthday.
Happy Quarter Century, Michael.

Love you

I really enjoy snooping through the treasures on 1stdibs.com. My favorite things to look at are the chandeliers, and the jewelry (specifically the rings...shhh). All of it is completely unaffordable, but there's nothing wrong with dreaming.... look at these girls, I think they are beautiful.

Aren't these just stunning? I didn't mean to include engagement-looking rings, but what the hay.

I have been watching TV, sipping and Orange Dry, while compiling this record-breaking nugget of goodness. I see this commercial once in a while, and even though I don't support Walmart, this is just to die for:..the music, the dancing, the dress. Don't you wish you could be back there, without a care?

I will leave you with that, until Friday.

I am positive I will have new merchandise to show off.

Enjoy your Thursday!! I know I wont.....

PS Please feed the fish while I'm gone.
