Daisy Duke has the thong ready!

I talked to sis today, the infamous Daisy. Of course, she is a bit down, as her first born (and only born) has just started college to become a nurse so she can care for her mother and beloved Aunt Sandy in their old age. But she's not too far away and can get home often. I can't believe she's in college already! Sniff. It's so hard being away from family and seeing them only once a year or so.

Anyway, she reports she found the Jets thong that Dragon must wear at our get together in November.

Daisy likes Schnitzel, so I thought we might start at the VFW again the Friday night she's in town. Then on to ????

Everyone bring their cameras to capture the Dragon/Daisy/Thong moment. Unless of course, he chickens out.

Now for those of you who might be getting the wrong idea, the whole joke started months ago when I said that when I die, I want to be cremated and buried in my pet cemetery. Daisy joked that The Boss would put a hot tub on the site and enjoy his freedom and new chicky-poos. From there it went on to teasing about my coworker Matt being in the hot tub (I had posted a topic about him and his new puppy, with a picture of him that all the much-older women drooled over). Then when I posted a picture of sis in a pair of shorts with my dog, Peanut, the whole topic snowballed into Daisy Duke shorts, Dragon thongs and so on, because Dragon liked the picture of Daisy in her denim shorts.

Now, none of us but one or two knew each other before we started posting here, and we've become fast, if not crazy friends. So anyone who hasn't joined in the conversation yet, don't' let us scare you! And if you want to join us for a great meal and some fun at the VFW when Daisy is in town, we'll let you know the exact time when the date gets closer! And we plan on staying at the Riverview Inn so we don't have to worry about driving or waking up The Boss to pick us up!

So Dragon, you better start working out! I must ask her what size thong she got. And if she can take a picture of them,I'll post them!

Adrienne said she's planning on coming all the way from Virginia to meet us, and Skeeter is going to come from Ga. once again, so the whole gang should be there!

Oh dear Lord. I think I need to be sure that I am out of the, maybe I need to be out of the country that weekend!!

NO BAIL MONEY for the Dragon. You ladies will have him all to yourselves. For better or for worse......

Sandy! For shame on you! MUCH OLDER women? Come on now, don't rub it in girl! Besides older is good, you know wiser and more experienced etc.
And Dragon to follow up on what Skeeter said about the camera lenses, do you need to bring tweezers and a magnifying glass or a exta stretch material thong? Tee Hee Hee. Dorry brother but can't help ribbing you a bit.

Blogger Adrienne said...

Pam, If we need tweezers and a magnifying glass, we may also need popsickle sticks and rubberbands. HAHAHA!!

YEAH!!! I can't wait!! What will we plan for that weekend? I will have that Saturday as well if anyone wants to play tour guide and show me the town or OOOOH take me to someplace fun in Nashville. I have never been there, only to Memphis. Anyone up for it?

Any suggestions for a nice centrally located hotel would be helpful as well.

Blogger Sandy said...

Adrienne, Daisy is coming in on Wed, but on Friday, when we have our party, we are getting a room at the Riverview Inn, so that's where I suggest you stay. It's a big hotel right in the middle of downtown. What day are you coming? Plus, the hotel's owner is a BIG HUGE animal lover who helps all the loca shelters!

I'll call you when the time gets closer! And I'm sure we can get you to Nashville, but there's a lot to see here too!

Monday, September 03, 2007 1:01:00 PM  
Blogger Adrienne said...

Sandy, I will get there Thursday evening and leave Sunday morning. I put in a reservation request at the Riverview. For being such big supporters of animals, how come they don't allow pets at the hotel?

I was "told" today that if I don't buy a new car before November, I will not be going. WHATEVER!!! I do need a new car, but that won't stop me from coming, I'll just rent one. MEN! Like telling me anything has ever stopped me! HA!

Blogger Sandy said...

Who said they don't allow pets? I thought they did, at least in certain rooms. Did you speak to them before? I'll have to check with the owner. In fact, I was going to write a blog about a cat of hers. She donates the ballroom for free for the Humane Society dance and her family donates all the better. She's done so much for all the shelter,most of it quiet and out of the spotlight.

It says on there web site that they do not accept pets at this time. I wasn't planning on bringing any body, but sometimes Mattie travels with me. It would be nice if she could.

First of all, what is it with this damn schnitzel at the VFW?? It was okay, at best. The white beans weren’t that good, the potatoes I didn’t even want to try, the tea was weak. Oh, wait, the cole slaw was good (hard to mess up Kroger cole slaw). Not a place I would run off to in such a hurry. To have a true dinner with those shorts, I mean with Daisy, the VFW is absolutely NOT the first place that popped into my mind. But, Sandy, if that is where you want to eat, go right ahead. We might catch up with you later. But, when you have a group of people and you are trying to figure out where they all want to eat, you are going to get many different answers. I personally think we ought to find a good Chinese restaurant. There are many to choose from here in town and I’ll even let my young sister Pam pick which one she prefers.

Skeeter, Skeeter, Skeeter…… It seems that at our last little get together Sandy issued a challenge that she would give $10 to anyone that could get a picture of me with my glasses on. Ya’ll failed miserably at that simple little task. But, you did save the Boss ten bucks, because we know Sandy wouldn’t come off her own money.

Wide angle or zoom??? I personally cannot answer that question. However, I do have extensive personal references, and I can provide names and phone numbers upon request. I’m sure these members of my previous harem would be happy to give you all the gory details. I seem to recall some of them used to call me Gene Simmons.

Adrienne, tweezers, Popsicles, and rubber bands. Hmmmm….sounds like a fun new party game to me.

Guinevere, thanks. Sandy, you don’t have to worry about a room for Daisy after all.

Sandy, when you say much older women, I know you are not in reference to my young sister Pam. You must have been referring to yourself, in a manner that it wasn’t obvious that you were the one drooling over your much younger co-worker Matt. Wouldn’t want to get the Boss all riled up.

Mayday, mayday. Wifey poo is going to be out of town most of the week. Is there anybody out there that wants to come feed me?? I need a substitute dinner fairy. I cooked enough hamburgers to last me all week, but I just don’t know how they are going to get heated up and put on the bun and delivered to me in the living room. Whatever will a poor, pitiful Dragon do??

OH MY GOD!! That means the lunch fairy is going to be gone, too!!

Anybody up for Hooters on Wednesday night?

We can go eat wherever, but I liked the VFW because there was plent of room, the food was good and cheap and the drinks were cheap! The German potato salad was great and so were the beans. You just are used to southern beans flavored with hog jowls or whatever and that nasty yellow potato salad!

Daisy likes schnitzel, that's why I thought we'd go there again, but I like all kinds of food. I just don't like crowds and kids, and I didn't spot any rug rats at the VFW! And I don't like a place that makes you feel rushed if there are others waiting. And besides, the dinner is not the main event, the party afteward is!

Well Dragon my dear brother, Thanks for those sweet things you said about me being young. I know now that you absolutely must have a extra material to cover the massice package you carry around! I'm proud of my brother the studly man! So Adrienne, forget all about thost things that only a lesser man would need, they're not for Dragon!
I must disagree on the Snitzel though, I thought it was great! I look forward to having it again. If only there had been absolutely NO smoke it would ahve been a perfect dinner. Even though there wasn't a lot it still bothered me a bit. But I was in such good company I tried not to let it get to me too much and we weren't there too long either.
I would love to have eveyone over here after dinner but first I ahve to find out when Fly Boy has to get another agiogram. I know it's sometime in Novemember but don't know when. Fly Boy can't find the appointment card and didn't write it on his calender so had to serch for it. If he can't find it we'll call and get the date. I will let you know as soon as we find out. If it's after the party we will for sure host the event but if it should be the same week then won't be able to. As I said I will let you know soon as I can and we still have plenty of time so no worries.

Oh Dragon another thing, on the Gene Simmons thing, that is the other end you know. I do think you might want to compare yoourself to Tommy Lee though. Remember how he commisioned a artist to recreate his body parts? He and Pamela fought over it when they divorced. She must have wanted to keep a part of him close no matter what,ha.

Blogger Skeeter said...

Okay, I think the Dragon is looking for an excuse to keep the thong off his butt. Looks like he is shooting for putting the thong on the head that sits upon his shoulders! Gene Simmons tongue, ha, in your wild wench dreams….

I don’t recall the $10.00 bet but glad you brought that up as I will have the Candid Camera ready next time! Is the bet still on Sandy??? I spared you Dragon because I did penetrate the cannons and moat and made it into your castle where I found you sleeping in front of the TV with hands on family jewels (and I don’t mean Guinevere’s Ruby’s and Safire’s) while sweating profusely and I could have taken the best picture for the Blog but I spared Guinevere the embarrassment. So don’t go putting a challenge on me or you will be soooo sorry… I can be an evil wench when pushed… tee hee…..

I lived in Germany for 6 years and I must say, the schnitzel at the VFW made me feel as if I were back in Germany! It was the best I have had since leaving Deutschland! The Potato salad was good as well and NOT the Southern American Classic we all know and love but it was German to go with the German schnitzel, you big goofball Dragon! I did not eat the beans in case Brett and Jeremy had a hot tub, I did not want to be the blame for the bubbles! Plus, I did not see any chow and what is white beans without Tennessee Chow Chow, blah in my book….

Pam, your house sounds good if plausible! You have plenty of room and the men can do the man thing in the Man Cave and stroke the Hot Rod while the hens cackle in other rooms!

Dragon quote: Adrienne, tweezers, Popsicles, and rubber bands. Hmmmm….sounds like a fun new party game to me.
Skeeter quote: Pin the tail (or what ever) on the Dragon!!!

Dragon, stop your whining about the dinner fairy and go make yourself a damned bologna sandwich! You talk about growing tomatoes, so go make a tomato sandwich for variety….

You started this big boy! Your old “harem” aint got nothing on your current Wenches!
Swish… Swish… the pot of brew is getting thick!

If Dragon had a good wife, she'd have made meals ahead and had them prepared for the freezer. LOL.

Get this true story. I was going for a hysterectomy about 6 years ago. Major abdominal surgery. I'd be in the hosptial about 4 days, with a 6-8 week recovery. What did my Mom say when I told her I was going for surgery?

What are you going to make and freeze for The Boss to eat while your laid up?!

That was the first damn thing she said to me! Her daughter is going under the KNIFE and she is worried about what he'll eat!

I guess The Dragons and The Bosses miss the old-fashioned sort of wifey poo!

No fear my dear wenches. Wifey-pooh is hard at (as I type) preparing my feast for each and every day while she is away. Both Lunch and Dinner with dessert. What a dear woman! Wifey-pooh also went next door to ask little girly girl if she would mind coming over and heating things up while she is away. Hot dog, I will be in heavenly bliss while wifey-pooh is away. Wifey-pooh even takes care of me even when she is not here. How lucky can a Dragon be? I can’t wait till she is away. Do you think if I help her pack wifey-pooh will leave sooner?? Sandy, what is a microwave? If wifey poo froze my dinner, how would I eat it?? I don’t like it cold. How would it get to the living room?? I do not understand the concept here.

The open invitation for Hooters on Wednesday night has been canceled. I do not need any witnesses.

It looks like it will be at the VFW. It’s OK. The schnitzel was good and I reckon I can tough it out through the rest. The sacrifices I make for my wenches. And dear sister Pam, the smoke will not be an issue in November. Remember, it will be smoke free in all restaurants come October 1st, including the VFW.

Pam, my dear young sister, I don’t compare myself to anyone. Seeing as how we Dragons are all different, it will only be like comparing apples to oranges. I am the great Dragon, and no one can truly compare to my majestic-ness.

Oh, Pam, by the way, spell check is a most wonderful invention.

The VFW might not be smoke free in Nov. Most states which have gone smoke free dont apply to Private clubs and I think the VFW falls under that catagory. Not sure about that as each State has different rules...

Dragon, dear brother, I do use spell check on my email but don't know how to bring it up here. I may be brilliant in many ways but not so when it comes to these computers. And this one is new and isn't exzactly like the old one so still learning.

Sandy, That sounded just like my mother what yours said when you were going to have surgery. About what were you making to freeze for The Boss I mean.' One time at a family dinner my mother was fixing a plate of food for my step father and my sister was making one for my brother-in-law and my Mom asked me if I was going to make Fly Boy one too. I said I don't think so, he can fix his own dog goned plate, look at him does he look like he has two broken arms to you? Hello people! We aren't living in the dark ages here. They thought I was just not being a good wife for that. Give me a freakin' break puleezzee.

This is the second attempt I've made to get this on here, the first time it didn't go through.

Skeeter, the whittle Dragon dose have a full belly tonight. He is one happy camper. The neighbor came over right after she got home from work. Heated up the dinner, and was all smiles in the preparation of the great feast. I had to show her the error of her ways. I had to go into the kitchen to retrieve my plate of goodies. I explain to her, here on the couch, and the food shows up in front of me. It is how ever, an honest mistake on her part. She has no significant other and just don’t know any better. I did give her a good book to read call, “To Serve Man”.

Big fat Turkey leg and chalice of ale!
Or… is that chicken wings and bottle of beer from Hooters?

Dragon, if you ever watched the old Twilight Zone series, there is an epsisode "to serve man," Aliens landed and promised to "serve man." Everyone fell for it. What they really meant, as the earthlings found out to late as they got in the space ship, taht their book "to serve man" was a cookbook to COOK and serve man as food for their alien people to eat. LOL.

Pam, I am surprised at such a good Southern girl rebeling in the take-care-of-your-man department! Love it!

Sandy don’t scare the whittle Dragon with talk like that. One more day and wifey poo will be back to take care of her baby lizard.....

I bet Pam burned her bra at Woodstock!!!

I am the wimpy “take care of your man” kind of southern gal. I cook and clean for him and he brings home the money and holds open doors for me. We like it like that. Now don’t all you Wenches go Nut Case on me, I do believe a woman can be what ever she wants to be and I do know how to take care of myself. I did that for 10 months when the Saint went off (TDY) to Bosnia without me….

Sandy, I remember that Twilight Zone episode!!!! That was so scarey, I saw it not too long ago too and would love to see it again. It was one of thier best I thought.
On taking care of men I do draw the line at certain things but I do cook for my man, lots of good stuff too.
Skeeter when Woodstock was going on I didn't need a bra,ha.

Can life get any better than this? I’m having some much fun since wifey-pooh has been goon, I can’t stand it. The neighbor come over and prepares my meals. I played in a golf tournament on Thursday that was paid for by someone else. I came home with the trophy for First Place in first flight. I shot a 7 under. Went out on the town last night. I came in way to late. I called in sick at work today.

Skeeter, and Pam, Thanks for the congrats on the golf game of my life. I never realized all I needed to do to improve my golf game was to send wifey-pooh away. It must have been the lack of stress and the sheer enjoyment of life for three days that I was able to consecrate on my golf swing. I must plan more golf outings and send wifey-pooh away. Who knows, I could end up on the Champions Tour? Well, maybe not, but I can still dream.

Now what’s this about I had better get the house cleaned up and back in order? If I were to do something like that Wifey-pooh would feel left out. I like to make her feel needed, and she is needed. The first thing I told her when she came thought the door was, “I’m hungry.”

The girly clothing articles will be picked up and put in the souvenir box up in the attic. Yes, my dear sweet sister Pam, playtime is over. Straighten up and fly right? Never, never, never…………..
