That’s the official start to my stay-cation. At 11, we go to a celebration of life for Uncle Bubbie. Maybe it’s wrong to say I’m looking forward to the services but I am. We’ll have a reunion of epic proportions for those who are still in San Antonio and can attend.

Such an inspiration to us all.  His life was not the easiest but he sure had an attitude that carried him far.  The oldest of 13 who took over as man of the house at the tender age of 14.  A responsibility he did not take lightly.  Co-Owner of the company that B had the privilege to work for until the business was sold late last year.

The remainder of the week, July 4th included will be free flowing. No alarm, no plans, all about me. Do what I want to do. When I want to do it.

Someone asked me where I was going then gave me a look when I said nowhere. Why should vacation = travel. Traveling invokes stress. I’ve gotten better over the years but packing and the hustle bustle is not my thang.

Plus travelling isn’t free.  Wait! What?  No free travel.  I was sure they gave away vacations.  Though Pony says “mom, you can afford things; quit living beneath your means”.  And maybe we could or should but Lulu is in school all summer and B is starting a business.  Timing isn’t right.  And we are back again to time being of the essence.  And since there is no Star Trek beam me up to get us places quickly, I’ll stay home thank you very much.  Not a waste of time either as I have decided!  Mr. Hand this is MY time … to do as I will with it.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Peace and Tranquility are mine.

As always, more to come.

For 6/30/19 ~ “Who,What, When, Where, Why”

Everything but how is included in this song selection. I’m compulsive and couldn’t pick only one word from the prompts. Glad to have stumbled upon the Manhattan Transfer. Enjoy!

What (woo ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Where (woo ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Why (tell me why, tell me why, tell me why…)I don’t understand
Let’s sit down and talk
One minute you love me and then you walk
There’s more going on
Than you will admit
‘Cause just as we got it to work you quit

I’m caught in a fog
And you make it clear
The truth won’t be worse than the things I fear
It’s a mystery to me
I haven’t a clue
If somebody else has a part of you

Tell me
Who (who)
What when where why (why)
Who is the guy
What made you need someone new
Tell me
Who what when where why
When did it die
When’d we go wrong
Don’t you lie, tell me why

You won’t be my love
You won’t be my friend
But won’t you at least help me comprehend
What’s happening to me
‘Cause after you go
My one consolation will be to know
The places and names, the reason and rhymes
The facts of the matter and points in time
I tried for your love
But you won’t allow
This guy to do nothin’ but ask you how

And… Who (who)
What when where why (why)
Who is the guy
What made you need someone new
Tell me
Who what when where why
When did it die
When’d we go wrong
Don’t you lie, tell me why

I want you to say
What’s inside your head
Confession is good for the soul it’s said
So start at the top and take it real slow
If you want out, then I have to know

Just… Who (who)
What when where why (why)
Who is the guy
What made you need someone new
Tell me
Who what when where why
When did it die
When’d we go wrong
Don’t you lie, tell me why
