a BIT more innocent...but I have vivid memories of nights when my brother and I and the neighbor kids were freshly bathed and in our PJ’s...but it was summer...and HOT...and my dad would load us all into the old Ford and take us to DQ for a Dilly bar...Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh life was so simple then.......
Dang, you’re late! But better late than never....! See ya on the Rush thread in the mornin.....
LOL I never had that problem. My in laws lived FAR away. Hardly ever saw them.
LOL!! That sounds like a Seinfeld episode.
I give the kids I go to school with two pieces of advice-
1- Finish your degree now, so you aren’t my age and back in school.
2- Marry an orphan.
These days, no one would even think twice about you wearing them out, except maybe that nice man with his hands in his pockets, hitching his pants up.
Yes! We did that too!
My grandpa used to take us to DQ for Dilly Bars too. I think it was his weakness. He’d buy them by the bags full and put them in the freezer.
lotta posts, lotta seasons...we gonna need a SNARK PLAQUE DR.
Lovely summer memories...what a treat it was when we’d put on our summer pjs after our bath and get to sit outside in the front yard eating a Popsicle before bed. The best was going to the drive-in movies. My dad put some kind of board in the back seat of his Pontiac so we could lie down with our pillows. :)
Sound advice on both parts. We told out son, get that degree now. He’ll have the BS in December, but going for the PhD. He was thinking of waiting in the PhD. I said Nope, you get it now. You get into the real world and time flies and before you know it, you have other commitments and you never get it. Then he found out that the major companies would rather he get the PhD first as well.
But, wouldn’t you just know that he would graduate in Dec, nearly a year early. I bought a shot glass for him with his 2013 graduation date and MSU on it. So I told him about it and asked if he had someone he could give it to. So much surprises! lol
I was going to mention Drive ins, too. And you popped a big brown grocery bag full of buttered popcorn to take along.
Always thinking you are! :)
no, just didn’t have much to say............believe that ? lol
LOL! Congrats to him!
You got that right, sister.
I had to go to a meeting tonight and missed it all. I’m so bummed about Hollie. How did Cookie do???
Love Celtic Woman
My kids were Skyping with their cousin, I was feeling under the weather, but I needed the computer for a minute. I sat down and started banging on the keys, and happened to glance at this scary looking woman with a swollen, red nose, mascara rings under her eyes, and with—what could only be described as—a ginormous brillo pad posing as hair. I was horrified. What on earth??
It was me.
I NEVER want to see that again. EVER.
I liked Scotty last year. I loved the finale because I was happy either way.
I really can’t remember the year before. LOL. Oh wait—was it Adam screamer and Kris whatsisname?
Silent_Jonny, that graphic and caption is perfect!!
It was the great Lee DeWyze beating Crystal Bowersox to a pulp with his acoustic guitar. Expect more of the same this year.
If Phillips can outlast Hollie Cavanaugh, Colton Dixon and Skylar Laine, he will not lose. Look at this thread...not one person has suggested that their pro-Hollie vote will go anywhere but to Phillips...and many are saying they'll do it to send a message to the judges.
Who needs Vote For The Worst? Just come visit the Free Republic American Idol thread!
Thanks for not reading this!
And if he wins, I will be extremely happy for him...but he won't deserve it. Compared to the other two left, he's an absolute absurdity. He doesn't belong on the same stage as either of them. Skylar did. Colton did...but just barely.
But the ladies love him. Woooo Hooo!
And thanks for not reading this!
Why do you suppose that so many American Idol Freepers are going to throw their support to Phillips now that Hollie is gone? Can't the judges' favoritism toward Phillips, who receives praise week after week from all 3, be seen as throwing dear Hollie "Under The Bus," as they say? Why won't the FReepers be withholding their support and votes from Phillips in order to "Teach The Judges A Lesson?"
Thanks in advance, and for not reading this!
Well Mr. C, it's for the same reason that they're praised and congratulated for snarking and you aren't. There's a word for it, but there's no need to use it here. It's for the same reason that you're accused of almost calling people a Nazi, while others call you a fascist without reprisals. It's why you're shunned for speaking your point of view, while others are allowed to ridicule minors while recieving many jovial attaboys without one word of opprobrium from the thread host.
Get the picture? You should leave the thread.
Thanks for not reading this!
Good morning :)
LOL! That's probably a typo, but I like it. We'll add it to our Idol Thread lexicon :)
Performancy: (pur-for-man-see) noun. A silly, time-filling performance; see Jennifer Lopez.
I was afeered that you would use the breastfeeding mom on the cover of Time.
Why is this the first I'm hearing about this cover? ;)
Oh ... I just Googled it. That's not what I was expecting at all. That kid is going to be warped.
Good morning, Ma’am :)
They showed the "journey" for Jessics, Phillip, and Joshua, BEFORE they announced who was leaving..but showed Hollie's AFTER they said the was goig home...
So, where's the drama in that?. They all-but announced in advance.
I hadn’t noticed that. “If that is what they did, then good catch on your part!
No they didn't.
Well, Hollie and Skylar are out. Josh’s voice is really bothering me cuz he never sings the note that’s there. He takes a note below and goes up. That’s okay sometimes but Joshua does it every single time. PP isn’t that great and Jessica can do amazing stuff with her voice but I like half of what she does. So, that’s my worthless summary. Everyone I rooted for is done. I’m no judge of amerika (mostly little girls for PP).
In approximately a year and a half, PP will be picking up a weed eater at Lowe’s. I bailed during David Cook’s boring new song. I came bk when he was through.
Yep. Hollie went right under the bus starting on Wednesday night. Even that creepy Jimmy started things off by telling Hollie NOT to oversing so she didn’t and then the judges told her she wasn’t singing enough. Total setup.
Did you like Jessica’s second song? I thought it was all over singing and screaming and yelling.
And so it shall be..........
Hollie was on Leno last night. She was singing w/the band going into commercial and that wasn't her fault.
It's over for me this season. Finale, what finale? I've seen enough confetti and balloons since Kelly C. won to last a lifetime. Since the confetti will be falling not on Skylar or Hollie or maybe some of my other favorites who got sent home, I have no growlers in the game or slackers or sliders like Joshie.
PP. I was making fun of his name. pee pee
Did anyone answer you on Cookie? His song was boring. I switched to O’Reilly or Hannity instead.
Well said. And at this point, I'm done watching. I was only watching to see the hometown girl sing. This show sure has changed since the last time I watched. Simon's real-world critiques are needed in a bad way. Too many cheerleaders instead of judges.
It’s not real if they don’t get actual criticism. Rooting for hometown is only thrill left. I wonder how much invisible spandex JLo is wearing under her tiny dance outfit. She can’t sing that great either but she can act but usually gets wedding planner type roles which are so so.
If Phillip Phillips is the best America can offer, they are too young to realize there are PP’s every place in America where there are beer joints.
That sounds really good!
