There is only one rule that remains constant in making gumbo: First you make a roux. The roux, a flour and oil or butter mixture, which acts as a thickening agent, is the gumbo's base. There are no other hard-and-fast rules for the ingredients used in making gumbo - anything that flies, crawls, creeps, or lies still may end up in the gumbo pot. There are as many recipes for gumbo as there are cooks in Louisiana. The making of gumbo draws out the competitive streak in most Louisianans, and most cooks closely guard their recipes.

on charm for about 15 minutes.
After that, you'd better have a big willy
or huge boobs.
more screwed up than you think.
I've learned that regardless of
how hot and steamy a relationship is at
first, the passion fades, and there had better
be ALOT of money to take its place!
I've learned that 99% of the time when
something isn't working in your house, one
of your kids did it.
I've learned that the people you care most
about in life are taken from you too soon
and all the less important ones just never go AWAY.

OK, so my best buddy seems to have found LOVE. I am excited for him. I have know him for 5 years now and I always thought the FOREVER bachelor. A friend of ours set him up on a date last week and now they have spent every day together for a week. WOW. He's told her he loves her and vice versa. HE's 46 and she is too. She is divorced with a 19 yr old daughter in college. He is crazy about her. I think its wonderful for him. I hope it turns out to be his dream relationship.
No plans for me this weekend. I am waiting on a yard guy to come and check my yard out and give me 6 months of regular lawn maintenance and maybe spruce up the place. I hate gardening!!!! No green thumb here.
Do you guys have any favorite flowers, plants or trees that are lovely blooming and enjoy seeing in your yard or a neighbors yard?
I have a couple dogwoods, a red maple, a japanese magnolia, a few day lillies....but want something besides azealas. I tend to like rich colors. Send me your suggestions. Many thanks and have a good weekend.

I'm home again.
My aunt and I went to visit with mom and dad. I took everybody out for fathers day. I picked up some stuff for dad when B and I were in Savannah. He got a sailing t-tshirt a mild teal green. I also got him some of the cucumber dill dip/dressing of Paula Deens. When my mom had surgery he was doing SUDUKO. So I found a cd-rom for it and a couple of books. He said Thanks.
Mom really has a short fuse these days. I have never had a snippy mom. These last few treatments my goodness, she has no patience and VERY irritable. But ya know, if I were in her shoes- I'd be a straight out bitch. She started to grow back about 1/4 of an inch of hair, but the nurses warned her it will come out again with this chemo. Sure enough while I was home she started losing the little she had.
I was up till after midnight working on some of my grad class assignments. There will be lots of writing analysis and reflection. I think I can make it. I am happy it is a small class. AMEN.
Nothing going on in my life but mom..oh ok wait. Across the street an elderly lady lives, her daughter (must be 50's) moved in to help take care of her. Well I keep seeing a guy over there my guess late 30's early 40's. We have said hello a few times, but last week I went to get my mail and he came out as well and we started talking. His name is Bill. He's divorced about a year now. He's been staying with them until he can get back on his feet. (Last weekend my house alarm went off--ADT called my 2 people on the list in case of emergency-My aunt and T...well my aunt was over here and did not hear the alarm or her phone---the police came--and Bill was home to see all of this) He talked to my aunt and such before our conversation...He asked about my trip home and my aunt and who I lived with.....After talking letting him know I am single, it turns out he is best friends with one of my favorite students dad. I loved this kid 2 yrs ago. That is a plus.....We'll see. My luck she kicked him out, he's CRAZY, and it would never work.
I had to share.

I'm here temporarily. I have had a busy week. I came back from New Orleans on Monday. Last weekend was my parents wedding anniversary, so we went out to eat at one of N'awlins top dining establishments. One of my best friends from high school and college came back to Ga with me. She works on movies doing lighting...and well has the month off. So we have had some stories to share and memories to mull over. We went and got facials, shopped and relaxed. I really miss having her close.
I started Grad school as well. I only signed up for one class, but I think mentally that is all I can handle. It's only one night a week and we met last night. The teacher seems very scattered, but at least I don't feel a TON of pressure. So we will see how it goes.
My aunt, Amy and I go back to N'awlins tomorrow for a few more days. Mom had chemo this last Wed so she will be drained. We are hoping to help some. I also told dad I would take him out to dinner for Father's day. He wants a steak.
Well, I'm off for a shower and some photo albums.
Hope you are all well!
I will see you soon~ I promise!!!!

Yes, Mick I am ok. I am in Louisiana visiting family. My mom is happy to have me. It is a needed break for me. I do however start graduate school one class (at least that is what I am thinking today-I registered for one summer class). I'll be home at the beginning of next week and will talk about life.
Hope all is well with ya'll.
See you soon. Sorry I haven't been around to anyone's blog, please don't take offense! I still LOVE, ADORE and MISS all of you!
