I Love Saturday

At the farm last week, I feel in love with this baby calf. She isn't that young anymore but look at those sweet eyes. She is kept in a very tiny pen so I doubt she has much of a future although I am trying not to think about that. Isn't she sweet?

Saturday 9: I Want You Back

1. Where were you when you heard that Michael Jackson died? I was in my bedroom looking for my land line because at the same moment my cell phone was going off. My girlfriend was calling with a text message that read OMG Michael Jackson died. When I answered my land line all I could think about is I need to find information and don't have time for this call. We had a brief conversation while I scanned the news channels. It wasn't until Fox News confirmed at 6:30 p.m. that I actually believed it.

2. How do you think that he will be remembered? As a sad, disturbed, misunderstood, interesting genius.

3. What was your favorite Jackson tune? Man in the Mirror

and Smooth Criminal

4. Did you watch the original Charlie’s Angels? Oh yes. If you grew up in the 70's you watched Charlies Angels, had the dolls, the posters, wanted to be an angel and had Farrah hair or wanted it.

5. Did someone you know have that poster of Farrah? Quite a few people. I don't think there was a single boy under the age of 25 that didn't have that poster back then.

6. Did you consider her battle with cancer heroic? I don't know that it was heroic but anyone battling cancer is a hero but I believe it is an individual journey and no one can understand what you are going through.

7. Were you a fan of The Tonight Show Starring Johnnie Carson? No, I knew of it but never watched. I was never a late night talk show fan. I got my news during the a.m. Howard Stern run.

8. Did you like Ed McMahon on the show? See answer #7. However I was sad that he passed away.

9. What else will you remember McMahon for? The Jerry Lewis Telethon (he was a cohost) and Star Search.

Want to join in? Go here to learn how and to view the weekly list Small Talk Six topics for 2009.
Today’s topic is “if you had magical sunglasses, name 6 things you would like to see with them.” You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc . . .

1. I would love to see my mother at various stages of her life. She passed away when I was 12 and seeing her going through her every day life would be a dream.

2. I would like to be on the set of New Moon or Eclipse to see what is really going on there. Being a fly on Rob Pattinson's wall would be a wonderful fantasy. Maybe seeing him in his every day life will allow me to move onto another obsession.

3. If my glasses were really magical and I could see anywhere, I would like to see what it is like in Heaven or even if there is a heaven.

4. Seeing the past play out as a movie before my eyes would answer some of my questions. Was there a God, Jesus, Ark, Garden of Eden?

5. It would be nice to see my sisters and I growing up. Playing together as children and all of our wonderful summers of riding our bikes, playing man hunt, swimming in creeks and just being together.

6. Seeing the birth of my children from a different prospective would be the icing on the cake. I would love to relive their first breaths in the world.


  1. I so agree with number 4. Just to know for sure would be nice. Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for the videos. It was nice to watch.

    I would love to see heaven too.
