Sending prayers your way.

Luckily no kids were on it but my sister said the driver was pretty shook up.
Thank God nobody was hurt!

I hope you're all doing well. Thinking of all you and prayers to all of you who need them! Talk to you all later on. Hope you all enjoy your day! God Bless and keep smiling!
Sounds like a wonderful day, have fun!

Good morning!
It is going to be cloudy and humid today. I woke up to a thunderstorm at 3:30 a.m. Molly was a nervous wreck. Thankfully it passed quickly. I am heading out soon to run a couple of errands. I already got a few chores out of the way and dinner is started in the crock pot. I'm making pulled pork and homemade coleslaw tonight. I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

Vacation is still going great! We're planning to go whitewater rafting today, then ziplining tomorrow. I hope my ol' heart can hold out! (Just kidding!)

My cousin and his family are driving up today for the weekend. His family has a place just down the road from mama's place, so it'll be fun to have them here. Ed's also my best friend, and we've played together in the band for more than 20 years. Maybe we'll plan a big BBQ this weekend!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Elvis Preseli and the Undertakers

Elvis Preseli and the Undertakers
Thursday 8th August
Venue: Clarence Inn
Time: 9:00pm
Info: "I AM the only bald, Welsh-speaking, Elvis impersonator who doesn't sing Elvis songs in the world " says Gareth Benney, otherwise known as Elvis Preseli. It is a bit too much of a sales pitch to fit on the posters, and even the biggest circus barker in showbiz, Col Tom Parker, might have struggled to market him, but Gareth is a popular chap in the clubs of South Wales as well as in Germany. Having said that, the organisers of the annual Porthcawl Elvis festival just can't help believing he is poking fun at their idol. He explains: "They threw us out of the festival because I used to take a George Foreman grill on stage with me, which I called The Presizzler, and I would cook up burgers, because Elvis loved burgers. "They thought I was going too far. "I love Elvis. I always have. But they thought I was making fun of him. I was actually making fun of Elvis Impersonators." What with the improbable nylon wigs and the paunches-in-jumpsuits, Presley impersonators in general are an open goal, it has to be said. But the fact that Geraint doesn't cover any Elvis songs may have got the fans all shook up too. "I always used to sing Elvis songs, and every time I was at the karaoke I would do Suspicious Minds, but my friends got sick of it. "So now we do all kinds of other material — Gnarls Barkley, Outkast, Radiohead, Scissor Sisters — but we do them in the style of Elvis." Geraint, from Aberdare, gets around the dubious wig problem too, by not wearing one. "I have the outfits — the jumpsuit from the Vegas years, the leather one from the Comeback Special. But I don't wear a wig. And am completely bald. "I do put the sideburns on though." A keen practical joker and known for his on-stage jollity with the band, I can't help thinking Elvis would get the joke. But the ban from the festival seems to be a lifetime one. "I am barred for life, yes," says Geraint. I would suggest he starts up a fringe festival, but Elvis would never have been seen dead in a fringe.
How fun!!! Enjoy!!!
I don't think I saw him while I was in Vegas, but he sounds like a hoot!!

((Hugs))

I'm appreciative for the opportunity to interview though and know the right thing will come along.

I did visit my wife's new classroom yesterday. She's working hard to put it together and doing a great job. Tomorrow night we might have a date night as my in-laws are taking the kids to Tulsa (about an hour and a half from us) to see some stuff and have a fun day before school starts. So, me and the Mrs. are going to take advantage of it and go out to eat!

Hope you all have a great day.
Sorry that it wasn't what you were hoping for, but you're right about interviewing, it's always good experience. Praying the right one will come along soon!!

Have a fun date night with the Mrs..!!

See you tomorrow!
