I heard frogs in the creek last night. Spring is definitely near!

The daffodils are almost ready to bloom.

This morning, Wild told me I was cute. What an ego booster! That's quite a lot coming from a surly teenager. I feel cute today.

Last night I helped four little Brownies make their sit-upons. And I had fun!

While Unruly and I were waiting in line at a fast food joint, three big cowboys came in, stinking of cow shit and laughing. Most likely they had just come from the weekly cattle auction just up the road and were getting a big bucket of Kentucky fried. They had very, very heavy Southern accents. Unruly listened to one of them talk for awhile and turned to me to say, in her best imitation of Southern drawl "Now that's a REAL man!" The big burly men heard her and grinned. She confided in me, again in her best Southern drawl "I like the way they talk."

I learned today that last week I interviewed a killer on the street. He hadn't been arrested yet, but had already killed a 96-year-old woman in her home. He was arrested and charged yesterday with the stabbing/bludgeoning murder of the poor woman. *shiver* Freakin' out.

Tomorrow Hubby and I are going here with a bunch of friends. We did this last year and had an absolute blast! I'm looking forward to it.

Oh. My. Word. How is it that you interviewed him on the street? Yikes!
Glad you're looking cute and spring is headed your way! We saw some crocuses on our walk this morning... finally!

Krista...he hadn't been arrested yet. It was still an open investigation when I interviewed him. Obviously, he wasn't terribly concerned about it!

Interesting stuff!

I like cowboys too.

The mystery dinner sounds fun.

Doesn't it put an extra spring in your walk when someone thinks you are cute.....

I was almost part of a jury for a murder trial...sitting across form those killers, (who were convicted) while they were picking the jury for three days was very...surreal!

I like how they talk...and how they wear their jeans.

"I like the way you talk"...Hysterical!

I haven't been to the Bissle in a long time! Fun date!
