I have a weekly She-Ro!! This is Ms. Laraine a super sweet lady whom I've grown to love dearly. She always has a smile on her face and kind words of wisdom to share when I see her every week. Ms. Laraine is walking in the Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society this Friday. As you all know, cancer has touched my life. Actually in several says. My Grandmother and my Great-grandmother both died of breast cancer and I've had my own little run in with it of late. People like Ms. Laraine help to raise money for research for the cure. Walk on Ms. Laraine, you inspire me. I'm absolutely certain that God put you in my life at the time He did for a reason.
I'd like to give a big ole Southern Shout-Out to my good friend GingerV. Thank you so very much for the breathtaking 8x10's you sent me of native flowers and mountain views in Brasil!! They are so beautiful and I've framed them all and they are now hanging in my office over my computer for inspiration. I think of you everytime I see them. You're a doll................
We seem to be having a couple of translation problems in our kitchen lately. As you know, Prince in from London and sometimes he uses a few words when he's helping me cater that make me say "Huh"??. Me? I like to be a southern individualist and sometimes don't get all that fancy lingo..............
Cling Wrap = Saran Wrap
Decant = Put it in another bowl
Bacon = Ham (he means what I call Canadian Bacon)
Bacon Rasher = Slice of Bacon
Tart plate = pie pan
Capsicum = A green or red bell pepper (what??????)
Tin of tuna = A can of tuna
School Prawns = shrimp (again......HUH????)
Anyway, we muddle through and one day I'll learn to talk Prince real good......
I put the names in a hat for a fair pick at who gets to name next weeks subject for "Friday Shoot-Outs" and my baby Ellie picked for me..........
And the winner is gigi @afterthoughts!!!!! YAY!!! Okay Miss gigi just pick any subject you'd like but please bear in mind that it needs to be something that is easily do-able by everyone. A subject that everyone has around them in their town and leave me a comment so I can post it and then you please post it as well. Also if you don't mind please let GingerV and Gordon know because they are always so kind as to keep running lists for the gang. Today or tomorrow at the Shoot-Out will be fine. I can't wait to see what you come up with. This is your pick so do us proud girl.
I hope everyone is ready for tomorrow's "Friday Shoot-Out". The subject picked by the lovely Jen is architecture........anything and everything to do with it and your interpretation of what it is to you. I can't wait to see every ones snapshots.
