Celebrating Women for the Real World



Tickle Tuesday….and other stuff!

Las Vegas Churches

THIS MAY COME AS A SURPRISE TO THOSE OF YOU NOT LIVING IN LAS VEGAS, BUT THERE ARE MORE CATHOLIC CHURCHES THAN CASINOS.

NOT SURPRISINGLY, SOME WORSHIPPERS AT SUNDAY SERVICES WILL GIVE CASINO CHIPS RA THER THAN CASH WHEN THE BASKET IS PASSED.

SINCE THEY GET CHIPS FROM MANY DIFFERENT CASINOS, THE CHURCHES HAVE DEVISED A METHOD TO COLLECT THE OFFERINGS.

THE CHURCHES SEND ALL THEIR COLLECTED CHIPS TO A NEARBY FRANCISCAN MONASTERY FOR SORTING AND THEN THE CHIPS ARE TAKEN TO THE CASINOS OF ORIGIN AND CASHED IN.

THIS IS DONE BY THE CHIP MONKS…!.:)
YOU DIDN’T EVEN SEE IT COMING DID YOU ..?

GOTCHA !!

The Random Stuff!

Not much as far as the other stuff. All of us are coming down off of football and trying to get ready for Christmas. The house is finally done except for the guest bedroom and our bedroom look like Christmas still threw up all over them. I don’t know if I will be able to get any baking done because we just don’t have the time off from school like in the past (we get out after Wednesday).
.

Sheri and I did have the most awsome shopping experience last weekend. Because we both were cringing at the thought of going to a mall; we went to Town & Country Village and it was great. No teenagers all over the place, the weather was fantastic (around 75 and sunny); one store even carried our packages out to the car; we ate lunch outside…life was good!

    You were very close to my house while you were at Town and Country! I’m not getting much baking done, either. It’s too warm to be in the mood.
    Son got out of school last Thursday after the last final. I’m enjoying the break!
    Merry Christmas to you both!

    I remember growing up we had so much time off for Christmas. About now my Mom would be screaming out loud “when do you brats go back to school??!?”.

    I was out at Town and Country last night. Dead as dead can be. It was great. I think I was the only one in Pottery Barn (very dangerous…very dangerous for me).

    I always forget about that shopping area. I hate crowded malls. Now I know where to go as soon as boss hands over the holiday bonuses. šŸ˜›

    I found the whole warm enough to wear shorts weather to be a bit of a drain on my Christmas spirit. šŸ˜›

    I’m so sad Allen and CY Fair won’t be playing each other. šŸ˜¦
