"D" is for DID You Think I Forgot??

The Rogue Speaks:

This is a busy time of year for artists here in Tucson, with a lot of festivals and exhibitions going on, and I have sort of lost track of the days, but it would take an awful lot for me to forget Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday!!

All week I have been planning to write about the DUMB t.v. shows that I have come across when I have had a bout of insomnia--shows like "Lady Hoggers" where two women dress up in tight jeans, sexy shirts, and hoop earrings to chase wild boars through the woods. The operative word here is definitely NOT "lady." There are a lot more of these "dumbing down of America" shows, and I will address more of them in another post.

I changed my mind, however, when I got an email from my son entitled "Yummy." It seems that he has several video clips on YouTube. I highlighted the YouTube in yellow so you can click on the link and go straight to one of his videos of two of my beautiful grandchildren, henceforth know as "The Twins." My son's name is Joey Mau, and he has other videos listed on the right sidebar at YouTube, so check those out as well.

I had quite an exciting email from Terra at Sitting on an Oak, telling me that I had won THREE of her recently published children's books! I really wanted those books for The Twins! If you have children or grandchildren, you will want to get all of these books for them as well. Just go to Campbell Lawson(her pen name), and just below the header, the books can be found. Click on each one and read about them!!

I know this is nothing like my usual Thursday posts--it's really an olio (as opposed to oleo, which is margarine), a hodge podge, but after Holidazzle is over on Sunday night, I can get back into my blogging mode. Too bad you can't be here to come to the reception tomorrow night at the Hilton, in the Johsua Room. It looks pretty darned good in there! Lots of fine art and fine crafts! A Christmas shopper's delight. I'll have photos on Sunday!

Now go check out the other students' homework at Jenny's blog!!

That was a totally different D post ... i cant wait to see your list of dumb tv shows ... i have a huge list myself!

Tracy said...

I loved reading it thank you as I am always a late poster being in UK I ALWAYS read the ones around me especially when there are so many

Terra said...

Hodge podge posts rock in my opinion, how else are you supposed to say everything on your mind?

I adored the films on You Tube of The Twins! Emaline doing all her facial expressions and both the twins eating Ramen noodles, well, they are just too precious.

Congratulations Judie, on publishing your children's books! I am so happy for you and there is no end to your creativity. Have much fun at the Holidazzle and sell your socks off!

Judie said...

Cher, it is Terra who published the childrens' books. Mine and Dick's book is still online only. It has been popular, however.

Emaline is certainly precocious, isn't she? Hmmm--She takes after me, of course!!

Everyone--I will get busy reading your homework this afternoon. Now I am off to make it rich at Holidazzle!!

Wow, what a fab D post....and yeah I can almost guess some of the DUMB tv shows! ...We'll be doing our own Holidazzle thing here too...this time of year there is so many fun things to do and share...how can we fit it all in!!!!

anitamombanita said...

I hardly watch any tv any more for the dumbness of it! ugh...

Have Myelin? said...

Congrats to Terra, and dumb tv shows, wow I'm on a run/rampage of them this week for some reason -

Judie said...

Just hang in there with me, people! As soon as I find someone who can actually write up receipts and work the credit card machine at Holidazzle, I will start reading all your offerings for Alphabe-Thursday. So far, that has not happened, but I keep HOPING!!

Hi Judie lucky lady! I am glad you won those cool books. When children who are the face of evil walk into the doctor office where I work and destroy our beautiful children's books I wonder what their lives will be like 20 years from now? We know they won't be reading any classics!

Steph said...

Okay, they are precious. Who would have thought a pepper and an onion could give such darling footage. :) It would have been really fun to attend the reception too. Hope all went well!

KDL said...

I'm glad you Didn't forget, Judie. I am late handing out the comment love this time around...too much on my plate at the moment...Sounds like you are busy, too. I love the Bad Moon Rising photo above - gorgeous.

Jenny said...

I'm so glad you won the books...and so glad you found a solution to your crib dilemma!

Slow down!

Things can slide...including Alphabe-Thursday!

Thanks for linking up, though. It's always delightful to see you!
