Dark and Dingy

Dark and Dingy

Quite a creepy room in my house, I took this pic when I was trying to get away from my creepy stalker boyfriend- wannabe, I said that I was just gonna walk around and take pictures and that he must just stay on the computer. It’s a window sill, so the way the light illuminates the dust and spiderwebs adds a lot to the picture.

SX10-IMG_3355

Taken APR 2, 2001; posted JUL 9, 2011
Since Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, played polo this afternoon (July 9, 2011) at the Santa Barbara Polo Club in Carpinteria, California I thought this would be an appropriate time to post this photo of souvenirs of our one and only polo game (in the mid 1980s) when we still lived there. The prince’s beautiful bride, Duchess of Cambridge, presented the Tiffany trophy to the winning team, Team Royal Salute. Each player made a $100,000 contribution to the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry for the privilege of participating in this afternoon’s game. Tickets for the event went for $400 to $4,000 including lunch prepared by Giada de Laurentiis.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Santa Barbara Polo Club.
About the foundation:
www.foundationpolochallenge.com/foundation.html
Why does this mean so much to us? My long-suffering wife was born in Santa Barbara and we lived there for twenty years before moving to Texas.

I had dusted off my cap but I didn’t realize how grubby it had become until I saw the picture on my computer screen. I have worn it quite a bit in Texas heat.

PAIR OF THREES

PAIR OF THREES

Time for another gurlie-purdy-picture.

And where does the time go… especially when you’ve got your mind conditioned to ignor how badly the layers of dust have been piling up.

It is that time again… time for the powers that be from the Housing Authority to come out and do their anual inspection of my house. Honestly, they don’t give two hoots about when was the last time I vacuumed… and let’s don’t even go there, lol. All they really care about is seeing that everything is in good working order before my lease is re-upped. Still, right now I am more of a basket case than I normally am… and between now and Monday afternoon, when my appointment is set for, I seriously am going to have to back away from the computer… and do my best to get the place looking all spiffy. Can’t wait for them to see how great my yard is looking this year… not that they care, but I’m pretty darned proud of it!!!

And now…
I really must get going….
So much to do, so little time…
Be seeing you…
:))

OH… PS: My flippin (!!!) Yahoo mail is down AGAIN… ARGGGGG!!! Maybe it is trying to tell me to back away from the computer… ha ha ha…
