Guess which short-lived, decade-old space cowboy series I just finished watching on Netflix?

Excellent series. What a shame it was so short lived. And the movie to tie up lose ends was ok. But it just ticked me off. I did not like some of the ‘solutions’

I am in the office, exhausted for the family issues I've been dealing with for the last weeks, and yearning for the serenity I once had when I lived along the Virginian coast. Moving back to Mass. was the worst mistake I've ever made.

Serenity now!
Serenity now!

The movie felt way too much like they were trying to make a movie. I like the idea of “I can kill you with my brain” more than super ninja River.

I was just talking to my SIL and her parents live in Smithville, TN, and her mom saw a RATTLESNAKE out by their shed yesterday! she had to wait him out, and then when her husband got home, he wanted to shoot it, but it was gone. I would never leave the house again! who knew there were rattlers in TN? and i asked how she knew what it was and xsSIL said it was RATTLING!

We all look for peace and serenity
But it’s crushed by Obama’s insanity
A socialist, lying
A great country, dying
It’s hard to avoid an obscenity

My daughter’s last day here and she is working on our brick pavers. Her boyfriend saw the unfinished project and insisted they fix it. It looking awesome. They get on the plane this afternoon. Wish the trip was longer. So far, he is a real keeper. They joke a lot about getting engaged. His mother speaks only Spanish so I told him it wouldn’t work if we can’t discuss the grandchildren together. He cracked up laughing and moaning about grandchildren.

Well if it last another 3 1/2 hours he'll need to seek medical attention.

Oh yes, we have all kinds of wildlife here. I have fished snakes out of the pool and although I appreciate them eating rodents, I'd rather not see them. I really don't like the poisonous ones but the bright green grass snakes are very pretty.

February? They plan to move in together next year if it’s working out still, although he mentioned her breaking her lease. He has moved to San Jose to be near her. New job, new housing for him. Can’t find much not to like about him.

I watched a couple of episodes of it on SciFi channel awhile back-I never could really get interested in it, even when it was first running. I’m more into the Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica stuff when it comes to action-type scifi...

It interferes with serenity
When you seldom ever know
If you have work tomorrow
When business is so slow

You buy some more chicken,
And walk right by the steak-
You can’t afford to buy that
On what you manage to make

Now, most of us long for
What we didn’t lack before-
Thanks to Obama, we dream of
More money for the grocery store...

I’ve got to go do some measuring for a bid-back soon...

I never watched it until Saturday a week ago, and watched the entire series and movie in a week. I can see why people got upset that it was cancelled. It was a fun show with interesting characters and story lines. Lots of funny moments, too.

At its root, it was about the American spirit.

It showed a lot of promise. Probably good for it that it didn’t run so long that it got hopelessly wrapped up in its mythology.

I’m looking at you, X Files.

We have lotsa snakes in TN, but only the copperheads, cottonmouths and rattlers are dangerous. It’s illegal to kill a snake in TN. Go figure. If I had a rattler around here, my serenity would fly right out the window.

I got a couple of shots of a juvenile red rat snake in the side yard. The photos don’t do it justice. It was the most beautiful snake I’ve ever seen with many more colors and shadings than you see in the photos.

Yikes! We have had garden snakes here but never a rattler - of course my husband wouldn’t be scared but I’m like you - I wouldn’t leave the house until it was found!

I assumed that idiot girl had no sense when she admitted to sexting with Weiner, but then to do the beach photo shoot and now this porn tape.....I have to conclude that she must really hate her Mother and Father.

Naming a girl with a last name of Leathers, Sydney...pretty much locked her into this spot.

Its like naming a kid Jeeves...you have pretty much destined him a butler.

You never hear about Jeeves, the Hit Man...”terribly sorry sir, but I am going to have to whack you now” /seinfeld.
