Friday Fill-Ins on the Road

Saturday: I'll announce the winner of the Alternate Day Diet book giveaway!


Numero 86


1. Dancing to the song "Take a Chance on Me" while baking desserts makes me feel young and slim again, even though I'm not. What-evs.

2. The last time I took communion, I dripped grape juice on my pastor's hand.

3. When I drive I constantly try to improve my shifting strategies.

4. I saw Dave Barry standing in the foyer of a hotel once. You can't top that. Unless Clinton Kelly has emailed you.

5. Give me coffee, give me chocolate, give me cute shoes, and I'll be a happy girl.

6. Next week I am looking forward to seeing if there is progress on my diet despite eating a spot of chocolate, as the British say. I say, "'Tis four-o-clock, Jenson, tea chocolate time!"

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to getting on the road with both college kids and the HS sophomore and my husband, tomorrow my plans include sunning by a pool, blogging, watching TV in a hotel room, and Sunday, I want to be in church, but we'll be on the road home!

Yes, I'll be blogging from an "undisclosed exotic destination" this weekend. Not really. However, don't try to rob me. There are people still in my house. And a big, bad, wicked-mean dog who will stop at nothing to protect her peanut butter treats. I mean, her family.

That is one mean looking attack dog. I better find someone else's house to rob this weekend. :)

Chatty Kelly said...

The stair is too big, you had to add a platform for the dog. I LOVE it! Do you kids ever get jealous of the dog??

Have a wonderful trip!

Linda said...

She is one fierce protector!

Amy said...

I'm dancing to Erasure, too! :) Come on over and visit my fill-ins if you get a chance.

Have a great weekend!

My plan was to rob your place, but after seeing that huge guard dog, I have other plans.

Susanne said...

Good thing you have that guard dog for when you have exotic weekend getaways.

Have a great time with your family.

Mocha with Linda said...

Wish your "exotic location" were to be San Antonio....

We need a picture of your guard dog and Angela Hunt's dog together!

Charli and me said...

My ADHD Me said...

There are few things in life that can make you feel like a teenager again quite as much as:
1. Dancing to just about anything by ABBA.
2. Driving a stick shift.

Oh, once I saw Arnold Swartzennerggerggeerrerr. (hhmm, not sure of that spelling)
he was at the Virginia state capital while I was there visiting a friend (yeah, I got friends in high places...)

Jack said...

That dog is too cute! Have a great weekend :)

samurai said...

Hope you have a safe trip, and may the "sunning" be wonderful in your "exotic location". :)

Laurie Ann said...

Love it! Have a wonderful time in your supersecret exotic location! I Ken Lee your posts so I'm glad you're taking da laptop!

Tammy said...

This is such a fun post, Linda! :)

And when I first met you, I found the Dave Barry story in your archives and thought it was one of the funniest posts I've ever read!!!

And I cannot, cannot believe you mentioned dancing to Take a Chance on Me, Linda....this is SUCH a coincidence because this is downloaded on our computer and I found it this week and was just beside myself with joy listening to it over and over!!! It's probably my favorite of all the Abba's...
we're such kindred spirits! :)

Have fun at your exotic undisclosed location!!!

Nancy said...

Enjoy your weekend.
And yes ... very scary Sentry dog you have there =)

Grace said...

You've been tagged. With love, of course. :)

Ok, I was going to blog about how vicious your pooch seemed then the ad for the news came on and this HOA in Frisco is wanting someone to put away their new Ford truck. Plluuuuuuueeeeeeezzzzzzzze. Wow, can we find more ways to keep neighbors angry?
Well if your dog doesn't work, get a Ford truck. lol

Have a wonderful spectacular weekend!

On Purpose said...

5. Give me Oregon Chai Tea, give me chocolate, give me cute shoes, and I'll be a happy girl.

Thank you, Barb

"MoodyBlue" Jodi said...

Linda - How cute is she??? That little platform!!! Yes, all those robbers will be scared off. One look at that sweet little face will zap them into reality and they'll just want to do the right thing and leave your house alone.

She is a sweetie pie! Enjoy your weekend!

PJ said...

Love the "Custom-Built" platform. And your Zoe is tres "Cute" (My French doesn't extend to Cute! It's very limited!)

Janet said...

Wow, that is one ferocious looking guard dog! I'm shivering!

Thanks for playing :-)
