A few afternoons ago they were talking on some day time talk show about eating breakfast for dinner and although I wouldn’t even attempt to try any of their recipes or ideas I did decide that last night I switched it up and got to cooking breakfast for dinner; blueberry pancakes, sausage links and hominy. Hominy isn’t something that I get to fix an eat much these days so it is a nice treat as well as a wake-up call that I am perfectible capable of making it more often and promise myself that I will. While cooking, my young son came in the see what was smelling so good. That is when I informed him that we were having breakfast for dinner, and asked him if that was O.K. with him.
He laughed and said that it was fine, but that it was a good things that he liked these types of foods, because he had already eaten breakfast foods for breakfast, and for lunch at school. I’m so glad that breakfast is his favorite meal of the day!
Go figure . . .

Yes I have to agree that this bugera v5 guitar center that is selling for $199.99 is a sweet deal, but I am trying to so hard to keep certain members of this family, well heck – everyone in this family from finding ways to spend their money and concentrate on bring some much needed into the house. We really have become so spoiled and have become so high tech that it boggles my mind and my pocket book as well, which is already getting brutalized these past couple of months. Man I can’t wait for spring.
I think I heard that Daylight Savings Time is about a week ago, I love that. We have Easter coming up next month and a ton of birthdays and anniversaries that keeps the family busy as bees shopping, preparing, cooking, entertaining and exchanging even more presents even though Christmas was only a month ago.
Anyway I have been watching the amount of stuff that is constantly coming into the house and the garage and not seeing many things coming back out to be thrown or given away some how. I think we are going to have to have a major spring cleaning this year and try and kid the kids and hubby in the mindset of giving to the needy, which they usually do very well with, I’m proud to say.

For the most part I don’t mind once in a while watching one of the many court room judge television shows, but I can tell you that I never, ever watch Divorce Court (how very depressing is that show) nor will I watch Judge Judy. That is one scary woman with a lot of attitude and a lot of power bestowed all onto one menopausal woman. I can’t imagine allowing myself to be put on national television in front of God and everyone, to be belittled by this wacky woman and have her try my case for any reason what so ever. As far as going on national television during a divorce, are you frigging nuts or what?
I don’t know anyone personally that has made an appearance or knows anyone who has. I can tell you that when and if I ever do I will have so many questions for them that I really want answers to. I have a relative, through marraige, who made an appearance on the Jerry Springer show about 5 years ago. I never got to see the episode, but hubby did and wasn’t impressed. It was all 100% nonsense. Our relative made the whole thing up and was urged to act “over the top” by the folks that got them on the show. That was a real eye opener as to what is really going on with many of these “reality shows” that people are enjoying more and more these days. I say that if you want to see what goes on in a court room, then get your butt down to your local courtroom and spend the day in the various courtrooms there!

Marty Stuart with Guitar
One of the people who come to mind instantly when you say anything about country music or the Grand Old Opry is Marty Stuart. He has been a performer for over 40 years – it wouldn’t take long to look up and find out, but I don’t see the need to at this point. I think you get my drift.
Willie Nelson’s Guitar – Trigger
I remember reading that he left home at a very young age to come to Nashville and play guitar. He looks great and I love the suit he is wearing in this photo! He seems to have a variety of electric and acoustic guitars that he is seen performing with. Not like Willie Nelson who only plays his one and only acoustic guitar who he has called Trigger since he got it back in 1969, if my memory serves me correctly. Trigger seems to have an interesting story behind it. If you are into Willie Nelson at all – it is an entertaining story that can be found all over the Internet. I use Wikipedia a lot even though I have been warned time and time again about trusting what you read there. But honestly I don’t trust anything 100% of what I read or hear anyway.

Just hung up from talking with my sister that lives a little over an hour away, she sounds so miserable that I have decided that I am going to drive down for a visit on Sunday. I don’t work that day and Hubby will have the youngest with him at the flea market, so I see no reason to jump in my car and spend some time with her and her family. The cost of gas is the only concern, it will take over $20 to drive there and back and gas is getting really close to the $4 a gallon mark. It hasn’t been this high in a good long while, this is really scary folks, I’m tired of this roller coaster ride that we have been riding year after year after year – a carnival ride from hell is what it is, with no opportunity in sight to get off of that ride.
Good thing that I have a gas charge card that I can use if needed, it seems as if it is needed now more often then before, which sucks. I am trying not to use my charge cards at all. This was the first year that I didn’t use a single charge card for anything the whole Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. I just now paid one credit card off last week and hopefully next month I will pay another off as well, that will help when paying bills time comes around again the first of the month.
