and a dash of this and that

I wanted to share a bit of my environment with y'all. You know, show you a bit of the compound....a little at a time. I fear causing a wild stampede, and then on the other hand, I don't want any of you laying pity on me. This could go either way. So we'll start out easy. You've all seen my aqua aerobics with all the goof balls. but here is a picture of the pool without all the riff raff....and clean!

Here is another shot at sunset taken from Grandma J's back patio...or porch, depending on your preference.

And because some of you like to show off your sunsets over the
Chesapeake Bay, as you run naked though the woods gaze at the fiddler craps.... here is a random sunset shot from my back porch...sorry about the roof tops and such.

Next I'd like to throw a couple crumbs to my fellow Big Brother fans. Besides the evicted house guests archived at the bottom of the right hand column, I like to document the HOH for you and the nominees with a poll. Because the show is on three nights a week, and I see it three hours before the West Coast fans, I can't post at a decent hour without missing BBAD. Which is on every night for three hours. UNCENSORED.

Here are a few personal takes on the game so far. I started out not liking funky Renny with all her different hats and wigs and her Nawlins accent, that sounds like a funky Brooklyn accent.

But she grows on you. she's 53 and very cool. Not only does she cook and clean (which is a safety net older house guests immediately latch on to)but she's funny...very funny. And she's smart. She's Harvard educated and an ex Saints cheerleader thingy girl. In other words, I like her. she has grown on me and and her too.
Jerry gets on my nerves because he tries to parent everyone. He gives the girls a kiss good night, and it's starting to wear thin.

Keesha, the new HOH reminds me of Daniel from BB8. She's whiny and two-faced. I don't care for the other blond bimbo April the Ho either. Now that's not a personal opinion. There are several YouTubes out there of April and Ollie that rank right up there with hard porn. seriously. Ollie's parents aren't too happy, that's for sure.

Dude? Listen to your folks.

So there you have my take on a few house guests. My opinion might change. Right now if I had to pick a winner? Renny or Memphis. Who would you pick?

Hello Dolly......did you get alot of rain? People aren't even buying hurricane supplies here
St. Pete FL.....Jeese you think we learned our lesson on that when Punta Gorda got hit s hard!!!

The Running Girl said...

I'm not a Big Brother watcher, but it sounds like April and Ollie are doing some things they shouldn't be doing. Shame on them!

You must be getting excited about your cruise. I'm excited about ours, too. I won't post when it is for security reasons, but I'll post when we get back.

Hey, thanks so much for the reference/link. I'm sure I won't surprise you when I say I've already forgotten how to do that, but I'll refer back to my notes....

Please tell Dolly that she does NOT want to come to the East Coast. There's nothing here for her and we've run out of milk and bread.

I am all ready to move into that compound of yours. I wouldn't leave the pool the whole day. Please notify the management that I want a place with no ants.

I don't watch that show due to my internet addiction, but I'm going to pick Renny, using nothing but my ESP.

Thanks again.

Grandma J said...

Cortney, I want YOUR camera!
Keeper, We didn't get a drop of rain! better get your water, batteries and can goods.
Running Girl, yeah I'm excited, and I know you and your family are. I understand your position but here we aren't allowed to lock our doors anyway so I say "have at it" (jk)
CBW, You forgot? Phase One! I multi-task, my TV is three inches from my PC.

M, Ms. R, Mom, Auntie M, Marey said...

....not too bad a place that compound of yours...sunsets and all :)

I don't watch TV so I have no idea what goes on in TV-land...but it appears very entertaining to say the least.

Happy Thursday!

Rebeckah said...

Your pool is so pretty! I will miss you when you are on your cruise. I keep meaning to watch Big Brother so I can take part in your stimulating discussion, but alas, I forget : ). I was reading the BEST book last night though, so that could have been part of the problem!

Elizabeth said...

Found you through the Sistas! Thanks for the info on the coupon site!

tj said...

...Girl, I haven't a clue as to what you are talkin' about... I have the attention span of a flea and that show just couldn't hold me for more than 3 minutes - tops. Btw, I thought that blond girl was a photo of you and that you were sayin' "hoh" and then I thought, "I thought we were BlogHus', not "ho's". I dunno where I'm headin' with this (*sigh*) ;o)

...Beautiful place you live, loved the photos!


tj said...

...Oh, and I pick Memphis because it's home to the King and I'm almost positive that it has nothing to do with what you're talking about. :o)

heartshapedhedges said...

Are you kidding me? You arent allowed to lock your doors? They cant tell you that you cant lock your doors, they are setting you up to be robbed and assaulted!

And....I only watched the first episode of BB...none since.

Using the BB logic that occurs most seasons, the biggest pain in the rear, the one that everyone wants OUT on the first episode, is usually the one that dances around eviction every week, and eventually wins.

So, since I want Renny out, she will probably win.

Pumpkin Delight said...

Renny is growing on my too. I like Dan, Memphis and Keesha. April and Libra are B-otches. Can they have conversation without yelling at someone? Jesse is an idiot who loves himself just a little too much.

jlo said...

I like the Catholic school teacher and I think I might like Ollie, but I'm not sure why he likes April. Can't stand Jesse. He thinks he's way too cute. Blech!!

Grandma J said...

HSH, do you really think we can't lock our doors? I said jk. I'm not in a nursing home for crissake.

jlo and pumpkin, I like Dan the Catholic hs teacher too. I don't like Keeshah though. that could change knowing how BB usually goes.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh, gj. I can see now that I've been missin' a whole lot of family feud over here on your site. I am laughing out loud yet again, and Rita is nowhere in sight (or is she?).

Still laughin', can't stop. Pretty soon MY neighbors (a mile away) will come a' knockin'.

Grandma J said...

CBW, see? you're not alone. Just like you I am fortunate enough to have a blood line that keeps me in check, even though I specifically state on my blog that everything is from my perspective and may not be the truth as others view it.
Yes, it's Rita's fault because she's the progenitor or foremother of this gene pool.

heartshapedhedges said...

I have no idea where you could very well be a nursing home. Despite being able bodied and semi-witted, you picked up and retired to who-knows-where...and all we have heard about the place is a neighbor that has overtaken your patio, a handy-man type person who killed a baby bird that was on your property, same-wacko-neighbor WAKES YOU UP BY SPRAYING WATER ON YOUR WINDOWS IN THE MORNING, and let's not forget the water aerobics with those, with such hazy boundaries, it's not that far off from a nursing they have bingo too?

BTW, weather here is perfect....take cover from Dolly...the hurricane season has just begun!


Grandma J said...

HSH,You forgot about the free van to walmart. and the YOUNG caregiver who barreled through the electric gate because she forgot her remote gate opener. I think she went to jail.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

OH! I am dizzy from laughing so hard. More! More! More!

I love it.
