The weekend kind of got away from us...

First off, for those of you who wrote and asked how things went on Friday, THANK YOU...it is nice to know that you have friends - and especially those of you who are friends we have never met...

We will tell you that everything went great...my Darlin' Nancy picked us up and took us to the doctor's office Friday morning...

After a short wait, we were called into the back and got ready...the nurse was real sweet and informative and mixed a nice Valium/Demerol cocktail...and we slid into a wonderful fuzz...

Unfortunately, she did not use all of it (we found out afterward), so we could hear what was going on as our doctor instructed the intern in the procedure...

Bottom line...NO polyps found what-so-ever..and we have had them in the past...So, as a good friend said to us...we continue to have (or did he say be???) the perfect a-hole!

Darlin' Nancy drove us home and made sure we got into bed and then sat watch over us for the rest of the day. When we finally did wake, we had some food - though we really were not that hungry...

Saturday, I decided to whip up a great meal for her, and came to a total realization...one thing that sucks about Memphis is that Veal is virtually impossible to find in the stores...

Thus, we whipped up some Chicken Picata and Linguine alla olio (made with a sauce of oil and garlic and anchovies)...

Sunday flew by as our week finally took it's toll and we actually crashed on the couch for a few hours and then went over and had a London Broil with a Sweet Onion loaf with Nancy and the boys and then watched "The Kingdom"

GREAT MOVIE...if you have not seen it, rent it...with Jamie Fox and Jennifer Garner - it truly shows the horrible results of terrorism, but is extremely well done. It is directed by Peter Berg, who you might remember as Dr. Billy Kronk on "Chicago Hope" from 1995-1999...

If you do rent it, spend some time with the extra features and check out the entire set-up for the highway scene...stunt-men are pretty damn incredible and the men who choreograph crash scenes are no less than geniuses...

OK, it is way way too late...so we are going to leave you with a song by an artist we were lucky enough to get to see live last year at The Beale Street Music Festival...

They have announced the line-up for this year's festival will be announced on March 6th...can not wait to see who they have lined up...

Mr. David 'Honeyboy" Edwards...This is "Drop Down Mama"

Fingers crossed, we will have the new MAC within the next two weeks...and we can get back to our DELTA BLUES TUNEAGE TUTELAGE....

OH and


Have a great Monday all

  2. Gee, thought you already knew about the veal...

    As I said in TOOSP, glad you got that checked out as Mom's first cancer was rectal cancer.

  3. DrillerAA Says:
  4. Congratulations...I think. I've had several of these procedures. I am now on a three year cycle because my last one was completely clear. It is something that all of us need to do after the age 50. It can save your life!!!

  5. RWA Says:
  6. I have not yet seen "The Kingdom," but several friends have recommended. I will be sure to check out the extra features on the DVD.
