I spent most of last night in the emergency room with Karen. It turns out that she's got pleurisy. They gave her Tylenol 4 and Keflex (she's allergic to most everything else). I did a lot of people watching while there but didn't see anyone worth blogging about.

Welcome to Casa Junebugg. It's been raining for days, but the sun has finally come out and the temperature is up in the 60s so I got out with the camera.

I've got a whole 2 acres here on my private little Ponderosa in North Alabama. That's a pond on the right, but the rest of it is standing water. I told y'all that I lived in a bunch of trees!

The teal 4X4, the silver OZ Rally Racer in the carport, and the Triumph Spitfire in the back are mine. The black S10 is my son's.

Here's a view of my deck (complete with several grills and an outdoor fireplace) on the other side of the house. There's usually a hammock hanging between the trees, but it's put up for the winter. This is where we spend our summers cooking and hanging out. Man, I can't wait until summer finally gets here. Notice the fallen limbs on the roof?

The view from the road. It ain't much, but it's all mine and it's paid for.

I can think of a lot of comments for this one. "Crack of Doom", "Christian Crack", "Lost Thong", "Getting Cheeky". I'm sure you guys can ass add, a few more!

Today's been a slow, lazy day with rain and dreary skys, so I've spent the entire day doing laundry (WTF is it with laundry, it seems to fornicate and multiply every time I turn my back!) and watching VH1 One Hit Wonders.

I'm amazed at some of the fashion mistakes that we used to think was so hot! Asymmetrical haircuts, Banana clips for the hair, Big Earrings, Black leather jewelry with metal spikes, Colored mascara, Colored/Designed shoelaces, Crimped hair, Doubling socks with different colors, Fingerless gloves, Press-On Nails, Leg-warmers, Multi-colored hair, Plastic spring bracelets and necklaces in different colors, Ponytails on the side of your head, Ribbons as Belts, Roach Clips with feathers and beads (and the doobies that go with them), Rubber bracelets (as many as possible on one wrist), See-thru purses, Swatch Watches (several at a time), Teased hair, Big Hair, Mullets, Mohawks. Dang, I'm glad I outgrown most of these!

I did bake a honey ham and carry some to Karen, who's laid up with Pulmonary edema. The doctor's waiting for her EKG to come back before starting any kind of treatment and she's in a lot of pain. Damn it, she's my age and that's scary. Old age sucks and I DON'T FEEL THAT OLD. Lets hope she's just got an infection, she's small, skinny, doesn't smoke or do any of the other things that would cause heart problems.

The ham has been sliced, the bone and ham scraps tossed into the crockpot with a batch of pintos, and I'm set for food for the next few days.

What ch'a doing in your part of the world?

I recieved this link in an e-mail but I don't know anything about the Prison Planet.com site, so I don't know how reliable the info is. Gives you food for thought. Kinda makes you go HUMMM.

It seems that Bush has targeted Bloggers as terrorists!

Homeland Security completed its “Cyber Storm” wargame to test how our government “would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.” Given that homeland security ran the “wargame,” one may infer that the nature of the attacks by bloggers must be national security related. And, given that the major national security fear of our government is terrorists, then it looks like bloggers have made our government’s hit list of potential terrorists. But, what is the nature of this “terrorist crime” that was the subject of these wargames? ..........There are other indications that the Bush administration deems bloggers well within the reach of any definition of terrorist, if for no other reason than the crime of dissent and criticism. There are also indicators that relevant parties would be somewhat prepared to assist in the nabbing of terrorist bloggers:

Damn! I may terrorize unruly kids and dogs, maybe an occasional idiot, but I never considered myself as a threat to anything bigger, meaner or better armed than me! I must run with a bad crowd of bloggers.

What'd ya think? Are we the thugs of the internet or what?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A summary of action in the Alabama Legislature on Wednesday, the 14th meeting day: The State Senate Joined the House in holding a moment of silence in memory of Moulton Fire Chief Lloyd McCullough and firefighter Justin Jones, who were killed while fighting a fire.

From the Florence Times Daily:

Lloyd McCulloch, 64, and Dustin Jones, 23, both of Moulton, were killed late Tuesday night when the front wall of a warehouse collapsed on top of them during a fire at Outdoor Parts and Service

MOULTON -- BB Jones sits quietly in his living room chair.
Above his head is a photo of his grandson, Dustin Jones (in picture), when he graduated from high school ROTC. Dusty Jones lived with his mother Denise Moats and a younger brother Christopher Moats. He also has an older sister, Amanda Pahman, who lives in Montgomery.
"It's not easy to give him up,'' BB Jones said. "But if you've got to die young, I guess it's better to die doing what you want, and Dusty did."
"He was helping others, that's what he did, what he loved doing.''

Firefighters douse hot spots Wednesday, a day after a fire ripped through the Outdoor Parts and Service on Morgan Street in Moulton. Two firefighters, Lloyd McCulloch and Dustin Jones, died late Tuesday night when a wall collapsed on them during the blaze. MATT McKEAN/TimesDaily

My family got lucky last night. On the way home from work I saw a massive mushroom cloud of dense black smoke towering over the city of Moulton and the first thing I thought of were my two nephews who are volunteer fire fighters.

Later I learned that 2 of Moulton's finest, Moulton Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Lloyd McCulloch and Justin Jones, were killed in the blaze. My heart goes out to these fine men's families.

It takes a special breed of man to lay his life on the line for others. Our military personnel, the police force and our fire fighters all live and die so we can have a decent and safe life.

Here's some of the pictures of last night's blaze from the local media. I keep thinking, "It could have been Duane (Donna's son) or Chris (sister Teresa's son-in-law)" and I say a little prayer of thanks that it wasn't. We did, indeed, get lucky.

This is the second big fire in our area in the last week. Parkway Variety burned to the ground on Feb. 16, setting off a fireworks display that beat fire fighters back and was visible for miles around. Lets hope we don't have a firebug like the ones who are on a church burning spree in South Alabama.

OK BlogBuddies, I need help.

Sweet Thang has thrown down the gauntlet as it were, and I'm at work, so my internet access is limited (dayshift, bosses, etc).

He swears that the only big name Rock & Roll band that NEVER recorded a ballad is AC/DC.

Now I don't know if it's true or not but he was so cocky and self-satisfied and had such a smirky grin on his face it made me want SOOOOO BADDDD to prove him wrong.

If I can prove AC/DC sang a ballad, or some other famous Rockers nerver did, I can prove him wrong. He swears he's never wrong (yeah right!). The Big Man needs to be humbled, I tell ya!

If you help me I'll, I'll............I'll do something good for you I swear I will (get your minds out of the gutter, I ain't that kinda girl, at least not often).

In other news, I found this over at Pat's, who got it from Kat who got it from Silma.

I've always been the Wild Child of my family. In the last few years, my age has matured me from Wild Child to Cool Aunt. So I am not ,nor have I ever been, a prude nor judgmental. Hell, I was always the one pushing the envelope.

I have a son, a grandson, a slew of nephews and only 3 nieces so I'm not well versed in female fashions for the younger set. I've seen the little Hoochie Mamas in the mall dressed like underage hookers or a pedifile's dream, and have been appalled that their mothers' would let them out of the house dressed like that.

But the other day while shopping for a friend, I was shocked speechless and that's ain't easy to do!!

There in the little girl's department, in the sizes for a child age 6 or 7 (kindergarten or 1st grade) I saw kid's thong underwear!! True, butt-floss thongs like you see in Fredericks of Hollywood catalogs. They even had matching sexy bra and thong sets for itty-bitty girls!

Now the kids that are small enough to wear this stuff would be too small to shop, so their MOTHERS would have to be the ones buying it for them. Why would a loving, caring Mother want to steal her child's innocence?

Plainly I've been out of sync because I found this article from 2002, part of which states

"Abercrombie & Fitch, the same retailer that enraged parents last year with a summer catalog of teenage-looking models groping each other and in the nude, now offers several varieties of thongs at its Abercrombie stores, the division of the company for children 7 to 14 years old."....
The rearless underwear comes in sizes for girls ages 10 to 16. The smallest size - a medium - appears small enough to fit an even younger girl.

Don't our kids grow up fast enough without the people who are supposed to protect them pushing them into early adulthood?

I own thongs that I wear to be sexy for Sweet Thang or to improve the appearance of my more-than-ample haunches in certain outfits, but there is no way that I would want or expect a little girl to wear such an adult garment.

Come on people. Let the kids enjoy the little bit of childhood they have. It will be too soon as it is before they start worring about body fat, dates, who does or does not like them. Let the kids be kids for as long as they can. It's the only chance they'll get to experience the pure joy of living free without the worry and cares the rest of us poor suckers have to deal with.

Dear Proctor and Gamble Company,

I am writing to say what an excellent product Tide is! I've always used Tide all through my married life as my Mom always told me it was the best. Now that I am in my fifties, I find it even better!

In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse. My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to berate me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another, and somehow I ended up with a lot of his blood on my white blouse!

I grabbed my bottle of liquid Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all the stains came out! In fact, the stains came out so well, the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I would no longer be considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband.

What a relief! Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect! I thank you, once again, for having such a great product.

Well, Gotta go. I have to write a letter to the Hefty Bag people!

A Satisfied Customer


This will give you your daily giggle, Horny Animals on Google Video. This gives a whole new meaning to "acting like an animal". And Bunny Slippers will never be the same!

Last night was wonderful. Sweet Thang cooked dinner for me {hey this is a big deal. He usually eats out}. So what if it was ribs and rice with scented candles-in-a-jar to set the mood! He even got 2 flavors of popsicle for desert.

I told him I didn't want any candy {gotta get back on my diabetic diet, I've been a bad girl}. So he did the perfect thing. I have a fetish for shoes and hats, so after much consideration {and cheating by getting my sister to help him shop} I now have an adorable mauve hat and matching scarf. I'd post pics, but I didn't have time before coming into work tonight. No wonder I call him Sweet Thang.

The rest of the night, I'll leave up to your imaginations. All I'm gonna say is we both went to sleep with a smile on our face.

I stole this from Pammy, it seemed appropriate for the occasion.

Early V-Day

Since I've got to work nights tomorrow, and Sweet Thang has to work days, we'll be celebrating Valentine's Day at his house tonight.

Let's see if I've got all my stuff together. Custom dark chocolate/espresso candy, check. Romancing Hampster that sings "Happy Together", check. Mushy V-Day card, check. Sexy undies, check. Flavored Love Rub, check. Lucky Love Dirty Dice (thanks to my friend Carol, that's what she got me for V-Day) to keep things interesting, check.

Well, it seems that I'm ready. Now all I have to do is show up after Sweet Thang gets home and let the festivities begin! Happy Early V-Day, ya'll.

My friends make sure I don't get too down in the dumps by bombarding me with goofy, quirky and sometimes downright odd e-mails. Here's a small sampling of the latest batch.


Working people frequently ask retired people what they
do to make their days interesting.

Well for example, the other day I went into town and
went into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes,
when I came out there was a cop writing out a parking

I went up to him and said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a Nazi turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.

So I called him a s---head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20

The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.Personally, I didn't care. I came into town by bus.

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important at my age.


"Hello, is this the Sheriff's office?"


"I'm calling to report about my neighbor Virgil Smith. He is
hiding marijuana inside his firewood!"

"Thank you very much for the call, sir."

The next day, the Sheriff's Deputies descend on Virgil's house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept. Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, but find no marijuana.

They sneer at Virgil and leave.

The phone rings at Virgil's house.
"Hey, Virgil! This here is Floyd. Did the Sheriff come?"


"Did they chop your firewood?"


"Happy Birthday, buddy!"
(Who says rednecks aren't real bright!)?

Ya'll have a nice day, now. Ya Hear!

UPDATE: It took me twice as long as usual to get home. In the few hours since my last post, it has snowed like hell. The roads are already slick, I dread the drive to work in the morning. Cars were already in the ditch and everywhere people were sliding sideways and driving 20 MPH.

I took pictures, even though it has already gotten dark. The specks in the pictures are falling snow. You can see the snow on my Triumph 'vert and truck. That's Blackie (half lab, half bulldog) playing next to the truck, she's never seen snow before, we don't get it very often here in 'Bama.

I'm going to eat snow cream now. Ya'll stay warm.


It might not stick, but we're getting our first real snow of the winter. I can see big fat flakes falling onto the pipebridge outside the control room window. Sure is pretty, but damn I hope the roads are OK in the morning. Alabama's not known for talking care of icy/snowy roads. Not enough practice, I guess.

In honor of Valentine's Day, I've searched the net for facts and trivia about one of mankind's favorite team sport - KISSING. Kissing has long been immortalized in song, screen and art (like French artist Auguste Rodin's "The Kiss" on the right). Heck, I bet there are even cave paintings of some hairy Cromagnon couple locking lips!

I hope ya'll get lots of kisses from your someone special on Feb. 14th.


~Matrimonial pollsters' studies prove that a man who kisses his wife good-bye when he leaves for work every morning averages a higher income than does the fellow who doesn't do that thing.
~In medieval Italy kisses weren't taken, or given, lightly. If a man and a woman were seen embracing in public they could be forced to marry!
~It is a (scientific?) fact that the act of kissing produces the same hormone in your body that firing a gun does.
~Hershey's Kisses got their name because the machine that makes them looks like it's kissing the conveyor belt.
~Kissing can actually be a beauty treatment. Scientific tests show that good kissing helps reduce dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes. It also makes your skin glow and your eyes shine.
~Kissing each day will keep the dentist away. Kissing encourages saliva to wash away food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up.
~Fifty percent of all people have kissed before they turn 14.
~Good kissing is a team effort. If something goes wrong, learn and move on.
~Good, rich, passionate kissing can help you burn up to 600 calories per hour! You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.
~"Bad" kisses can be cause for alarm, especially if you get them often. Bad kisses may be a sign that your partner lacks the ability to be totally intimate.
~Babies who are kissed usually have a greater capacity for intimacy later in life.
~Our brains have special neurons that help us locate each other's lips in the dark.
~Kissing can relieve headaches.

PS: Sweet Thang and I watched "Must Love Dogs" last night. It's a Chick Flick along the lines of "Something's Gotta Give" and "You've Got Mail". Lots of kissing, excellent sound track and loads of laugh-out-loud moments.

The movie was warm, funny, and even Sweet Thang liked it. Great movie to get you both in the mood (wink wink). Watch it with someone that you want to cuddle with afterward.

I've never lied about my age, I've got the year of my birth listed in my profile for the whole world to see. I talk about Sweet Thang, the fact that he's 5 years younger than me, and give more than a few hints that I still enjoy an intimate relationship, hell let's be honest, SEX.

So the following e-mail just burned my butt:
Young men don't want older women. That is a fallacy. They prefer young, tight bodies. Men with money and position don't want older women, they can and do have much younger women. Realistically, a young man may "test drive" an older woman, but that is all it will be, a test drive and a limited engagement, if it goes beyond 1 night. Older women are not attractive to younger men or to men with money and position. We can, and do, afford, much better. Sorry, but these are the facts.

Is it true that men only date a woman who is "seasoned" because he doesn't have the money to lure some hardbody gold-digger? Is arm-candy more important to the average male than someone who really cares and won't dump him if his checkbook doesn't go to 6 digits?

I admit that I enjoy the sight of a young stud with washboard abs, but at 6'5" and 350 pounds, Sweet Thang ain't one of them. But we make each other laugh, we have things in common and our personal relations leave me with no complaints. He has a good job, his own home and a fair amount of disposable income, so is it true that if he won the lottery he would leave me for some bimbo named Bambi?

Joan Myres has a photo exhibit entitled Women of a Certain Age where she states:

As a woman recently turned fifty, I find myself less and less comfortable with the way American culture defines and portrays older women. I reject these cultural limitations for my own aging. I use my camera to explore possibilities, the messages and histories expressed in other women's bodies. I wish less to define than to reveal.
None of my friends would pose for me. That was my first lesson. "My body is not beautiful," said one. Another delayed a shooting session repeatedly until she "got in shape."
Where are the images of older women? Who defines what is beautiful? Is "beautiful" part of the definition of who a woman is? We all age daily. The body but records the passing of time. What does aging have to do with being a woman? --Joan Myers

OK all you guys out there. We women of a certain age want to know how you really feel. What matters most to you, age and looks or personality and heart.

I spent all day shopping for Valentine's Day with my sister, Teresa. I bought the standard cards and candy for friends and family, but I got the lingerie on the right for Sweet Thang. Do you thing he'll appreciate it or would he rather just have chocolate? Of course, that's not me in the pic, but maybe I'll look at least half as good in it as the model does. Maybe a pair of stiletto heels to make my butt look a little sexier?

What are ya'll getting your sweety for V-Day?

OK, I didn't get called into a meeting tonight (see previous post). I was told that "the powers that be" were in meetings all day, so they didn't have time to to hold a meeting to decide if I should be called into a meeting. That's the way it is here. First, a meeting to discuss the pros and cons of having a meeting. Then a meeting to plan the agenda of the intended meeting, the actual meeting, and then a meeting to discuss merits of the previous meeting. Ah, corporate life.

Now for a few goodies to keep you, my fellow bloggers and bloggettes, entertained. First we have an actual live jail cam (I believe it's the only one in the world that runs 24-7) located in the Anderson County, Tennessee Sheriff's Department booking area. I couldn't make the link for the cam itself work, so go the the right sidebar link above and click on it there. The site has a disclaimer reminding you that it's a live broadcast, and you might see anything. I watched them bring in some guy in handcuffs the other day but so far haven't saw anything that I can't see on TV, DARN IT. Even when nothing's happening, the thing's addictive. And I never realized how much paperwork the police have to do. Hope they use the kind we make here!!

And now, keep repeating to yourself "Thank God that's not my kid" as you check out these photos.

At work, I cover 5 different jobs in 2 different departments in 2 different areas of the mill. 2 of these jobs I work most of the time and I'm comfortable on them, but the other 3 I cover only a few days a year. It's hard to remember everything about all these different areas and responsibilities, I'm going to admit that the older I get, the harder it is to remember.

I've been working in a different area this weekend, and I worked here maybe 50 or 60 hours all of last year. When things run normally, it's OK. You have time to refresh and to figure out all the things that have changed (when you work with computers, I/A controls and such, things change every day).

Friday we had a major tube rupture in one of the boilers. At least that one can't be pinned on me, it was one of those "OH SHIT" deals that just happen. Luckily no one got hurt. It was a power boiler, so the thing didn't explode, just blew parts around inside of the boiler itself. Costly to repair but no one's fault.

But last night, I forgot to call another department while bringing up a piece of equipment (I haven't brought up this thing in more than a year). I'm not making excuses, just stating my case. No one is perfect, most especially me!

All indications on my end was that everything was OK, but the finished product went somewhere else. My alarm that said the other department wasn't satisfied went away and everything seemed to be normal, but obviously they weren't because I've been in one "fact finding meeting" tonight along with my union rep, and have been warned that I will probably be in another meeting tomorrow night with the VIPs who don't work nights and weekends. The other department stayed venting and never noticed that their alarms cleared. Now the environmental department of the mill is involved and I'm in deep doodoo.

Bad Junebugg!! I guess that's what I get for thinking. From now on I'm going to call everyone, scream at the top of my lungs, bug the hell out of anyone I can find and give new meaning to the term hysterical female and paranoid person. I may even develop a persecution complex!

I might just get talked to or written up with a warning if I'm lucky, but it could go as far as getting days off without pay.

Some days, it just don't pay to get out of bed.

I know I haven't posted lately, but I haven't really had anything worthy of writing about other than it's been short sleeve-weather around here and now the Weather Man is calling for snow flurries DARN IT. I got this meme over at Bitichitude's, but don't expect my answers to be as interesting as hers!


~3 names I don't answer to: Bitch, Slut, or any other derogatory, misogynistic term
~3 parts of your heritage: German (Mom's maiden name was Curnutt), Black Dutch, Irish
~3 things that scare me: Mother Nature when she's really pissed, the idea of getting old and not having enough money to live on and/or being dependentt on someone else, the state of our government, hell the state of the governments of the rest of the world too!
~3 of your everyday essentials: Diet Dew, a book of some kind (any kind), music
~3 things you are wearing right now: I'm at work, so no sexy stuff! New Balance walking shoes, pink and green camouflage panties, a pink and green floral cami underneath an unbuttoned denim shirt (at least I match, kinda)
~3 of your favorite songs: Anything except bluegrass and that old time country music that makes hound dogs howl!. I love bluegrass in person but not just to listen to. I'm not fond of rap, but anything rock, blues or that's just got a good beat and I'm there.
~3 things about the opposite sex that appeal to you: A happy person with a twinkle in his eye and a great sense of humor, someone with confidence but not so cocky that he's an asshole, Not abusive in any way, verbal, mental or physical. Been there done that, ain't going there again.
~3 things you want in a relationship: Respect, intelligent conversation and hot monkey sex
~3 of your favorite hobbies: Cooking (I'm actually fairly good at it), reading, making my own adventures
~3 Places you want to go: Australia, Beliz, The Amazon
~3 things you want to do before you die: Travel around the world, write a book (doesn't have to be a best seller although that would be nice), retire with enough money and good enough health to enjoy my so-called golden years
~3 ways that you are unstereotypically a female/male: I've worked in mostly unstereotypical jobs (welder, house-painter, pipe fitter, power plant worker, etc), I'm happier single than I ever was married (most of the women I know WANT to be married and have hubby to fall back on), I don't do ruffles or all the fussy household and/or clothing stuff. I like simple, elegant, classic designs with little clutter or fuss.
Two truths and one lie (in any order): Let's see now. Hummm....
1. Turning 50 didn't bother me
2. I've been married 4 times, widowed twice and divorced twice and did it all by the time I reached the of ripe old age of 31
3. I'll probably get married again some day
~3 (ok 4) people you would like to take this survey: This meme is now on the honour system. Do it if you dare
