Tri-City Brunch - Sunday, May 25th, 08

Greetings Fellow Kingsters & Munchers/Brunchies,

Here i am doing that silly lil thing i do usually only a few times a year. But this time i am actually doing this on a monthly basis now, as W/we have a monthly Tri-City Munch now to attend. Yipeeeee!Get out those posties!!! Put them on your mirrors,foreheads of subbies, and staple them to some bumms. If some are up forit.... tattoo it to a body part, i know i will.

As this is an event that will happen on a monthly basis, i hope i will only have to do this for a lil while. But Y/you know me, i will probably keep this up just because.... keep you all in the know. And make sure that everyone knows that it is being held on the Last Sunday of each month. So please pass on the word for those who may not know.Yes, the regular 5th Wednesday of the month is still ago. There will always be the Wednesday nite Tri-City Munch nite as per usual, and at the same venue as the Brunch. And the same times as the other regular Munches - 6:30 - 9:30pm or so.

There is a huge spread of food for pretty munch everyone's tastes out there. From Dim Sum to Poached Eggs and Waffles with Whipped Cream, and i do believe there is even some meat for the side and baccona nd sasauge. There is several salads, and fresh veggies for the munchies. And if you are looking for desserts, from 5 or so different kinds of cheese cakes to peacan pie and cocoa mouse. In other words, more dessert than one can handle. Pluss fruit as as well, to balance this all out. Pure Nummmyness.

i will have pics soon for E/everyone to see. But there are a few people out there from the last brunch that can attest to the wonderful food there is to offer. It is worth the cost. And you can order from the menue after 12:30 pm. if the buffet is not for you.

Here is the information for the Brunch/Munch:

Is Summer Almost Here Yet?

One would almost think that summer was finally here by the sun we had last week. But then this week brings the rain, and a lil bit of the grey sky around. Now not that i don't mind a bit of rain now and then, as it does cool me off and water the plants ( and that is less work for me in the garden ). But when everyone is looking forward to the summer sun right now, it is kind of a disappointment to many.

Now me being one who used to be quite the sun worshipper and have the tan that made me look like i fit in with the country of Africa...... i enjoy the cooler days a lil more now, and that is due more to outside influences more than anything and not my own doing. W/we all need a lil vitamin D though, more natural then what you get out of a bottle off the vitamin shop shelf. It does do the body good in many ways, as long as you don't over do it and take care of your skin while you are at it.

So here is to the summer ariving finally!!! Neked sun bathing!!! And camping days ahead of U/us all, to which i know i am going to getting into this year and very much looking forward to. Yipeeeee.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day
to All You
Great Mothers,
& Aunts too
Love from lil d

If the shoe fits.....

If you send this to just one person, it should make
it all the way around the world by Mother's Day.
This is for the mothers who have sat up
all night with sick toddlers in their arms,
wiping up barf laced with Oscar Mayer
wieners and cherry Kool-Aid saying,
'It's okay honey, Mommy's here.'
Who have sat in rocking chairs for hours on end
soothing crying babies who can't be comforted.
This is for all the mothers who show up at
work with spit-up in their hair and milk stains
on their blouses and diapers in their purse.
For all the mothers who run carpools and
make cookies and sew Halloween costumes.
And all the mothers who DON'T.
This is for the mothers who gave birth to
babies they'll never see. And the mothers
who took those babies and gave them homes.
This is for the mothers whose priceless art
collections are hanging on their refrigerator doors.
And for all the mothers who froze their buns
on metal bleachers at football or soccer games instead
of watching from the warmth of their cars.
And that when their kids asked, 'Did you see me, Mom?'
they could say, 'Of course, I wouldn't
have missed it for the world,' and mean it.
This is for all the mothers who yell at their kids
in the grocery store and swat them in despair when
they stomp their feet and scream for ice cream before dinner.
And for all the mothers who count to ten instead,
but realize how child abuse happens.
This is for all the mothers who sat down with
their children and explained all about making
babies. And for all the (grand)mothers who
wanted to, but just couldn't find the words.
This is for all the mothers who go
hungry, so their children can eat.
For all the mothers who read 'Goodnight,
Moon' twice a night for a year. And then
read it again, 'Just one more time.'
This is for all the mothers who taught
their children to tie their shoelaces before
they started school. And for all the mothers
who opted for Velcro instead.
This is for all the mothers who teach their sons
to cook and their daughters to sink a jump shot.
This is for every mother whose head turns
automatically when a little voice calls 'Mom?'
in a crowd, even though they know their
own offspring are at home -- or even away
at college -- or have their own families.
This is for all the mothers who sent their kids
to school with stomach aches, assuring them
they'd be just FINE once they got there, only
to get calls from the school nurse an hour later
asking them to please pick them up. Right away.
This is for mothers whose children have gone
astray, who can't find the words to reach them.
For all the mothers who bite their lips until they
bleed when their 14 year olds dye their hair green.
For all the mothers of the victims of
recent school shootings, and the mothers
of those who did the shooting.
For the mothers of the survivors,
and the mothers who sat in front of their TVs
in horror, hugging their child
who just came home from school, safely.
This is for all the mothers who taught their
children to be peaceful, and now pray
they come home safely from a war.
What makes a good mother anyway?
Is it patience? Compassion? Broad hips?
The ability to nurse a baby, cook dinner, and
sew a button on a shirt, all at the same time?
Or is it in her heart?
Is it the ache she feels when she
watches her son or daughter disappear
down the street, walking to school alone
for the very first time?
The jolt that takes her from sleep to
dread, from bed to crib at 2 A.M. to put
her hand on the back of a sleeping baby?
The panic, years later, that comes again
at 2 A.M. when she just wants to hear
their key in the door and know they
are safe again in her home?
Or the need to flee from wherever she is
and hug her child when she hears news
of a fire, a car accident, a child dying?
The emotions of motherhood are
universal and so our thoughts are for
young mothers stumbling through diaper
changes and sleep deprivation....
And for mature mothers learning to let go.
For working mothers and stay-at-home mothers.
Single mothers and married mothers.
Mothers with money, mothers without.
This is for you all. For all of us...
Hang in there. In the end we can
only do the best we can. Tell them
every day that we love them. And pray
and never stop being a mother....
Pass along to all the mothers in your life.
'Home is what catches you when
you fall - and we all fall.'
Please send this to a
wonderful mother you know.
(I just did!)
