Bonnie~Clyde…

Bonnie&Clyde
February the month of romance, famous birthdays, famous lovers, and the shortest month of the year…speaking of lovers did you know that Bonnie and Clyde were listed as one of the top romantic couples of all time ~ they met when Bonnie was only 19 and Clyde was 21 and it was almost instant attraction that kept them together for 3 years till they died in a hail of bullets…Bonnie as people would make note that she was infatuated with the lifestyle of a criminal even spending time in jail for a botched hardware robber in which, she wrote several poems  with one of them becoming the anthem to the film Bonnie and Clyde w/Warren Beatty & Faye Dunnaway ~ listed below is just a small snippet of the poem but the words are so profound ~ here is the LINK to the entire poem if you wish to read it♥♥ thanks to hubby Brutus for his assistance with this blog post♥♥

“…Some day they’ll go down together
they’ll bury them side by side.
To few it’ll be grief,
to the law a relief
but it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.”

mangia mangia…

mangia mangia
The Italians believe in la Famiglia meaning family ~ and Sundays are always reserved for  family, along with plenty of cousins, aunts, uncles all coming together for a day of  food, wine, and lively conversation ~looking at the table the only things missing are steaming platters of pasta, tortellini, Ossobocu with plenty of gravies, sauces to go along ~ the desserts will range from Tiramisu, Cannoli, Pannetone with various other cakes along with small bowls of gelato served with cups of espresso, bottles of limoncello and yes lot of different Italian wines ~ a feast fit for royalty but served to family…most of the heavier meals are served at lunch with dinner consisting of something lighter♥  After everyone has consumed their meals it is fairly typical to stroll around the grounds or walk into the town for an indulgent  digestive like Sgroppino, which is fresh lemon granita doctored up with champagne or vodka. Either way, large Italian families have their own special meals for Sundays some call their sauces gravy instead of sauce ~ my understanding is based on the region you grew up determines whether it is called gravy or sauce, for now, am going to grab a chair as my host yells out to everyone “MANGIA MANGIA meaning eat up ♥ a presto amici miei ~ see you soon my friends ♥♥♥

afternoon delight…

Down on the Farm
The field is all plowed, animals have gathered around my sexy hubby and me as we enjoy a moment…this is what I truly love about SL that you can one minute be frolicking in snow ~ the next moment you can be on a gorgeous beach or like Brutus and I sitting on a farm surrounded by farm animals…I can repeat and repeat this saying over and over but after 10 years am still enjoying myself ~ oh there have been a lot of ups and downs especially in the past couple days ~ my fingers are crossed they will soon get resolved so I can stop tearing my hair out and screaming in four-letter frustration…am sure my bestie and hubby will also be glad so I will stop venting over and over on this as they both have been patient in letting me truly rage ~ anyway even with that I love being a long time resident of Second Life ~ the poses have truly gotten better, the clothing makes me wish my RL clothes would fit just as well hehehe ~ that is something that most of us wish ♥ btw that billy goat is looking rather hungry he just better stay on that hay bale and not jump over to start chomping on my clothes or whatever he has got his eye on…best that I get back to that moment as Brutus and I do not see each other for very long ~ take care and again thank you for sticking around it is very appreciated ~just remember to take a moment to your self ~ hugzz♥♥

beauty school dropout…

BeautySchool
If anyone remembers the original movie “Grease” the song by Frankie Avalon “Beauty School Dropout comes into my head while I was sitting here ~ plus it does bring back huge memories of when I back in my younger days did attend Beauty school ~ you really have to be dedicated to this profession to stand on your feet, listen to women bitch about whatever as many hairstylists are like bartenders & priests as they hear everything and you just gotta listen…it is so different these days with blowdryers, just cuts with no shampoos and rarely do you use curlers ~ my Dad sadly disappointed said he paid for all that schooling so I could learn to cut and color my own hair ~ he kind of was right…look below for the credits ~ fun shot and have lotz more coming for you as Dena and I have been brainstorming with ideas as well as I am entering a photo challenge that I will be showing you the results in a couple of days ~ thanks to each of you for always taking the time to read my blog posts ~ hugzz and take time to breathe ♥♥

glamping we go…

Glamping
Cramming as much of comfort stuff that Dena and I thought we would need I gave her directions to one of the most gorgeous places I have seen the Smoky Mountains that borders on Tennessee and North Carolina ~ we were really lucky the National Forest was letting us spend a couple of nights as the temperature was mild and the snow forecast for the next couple days was absolutely nil ~ as you can see Dena and myself set up camper and if the weather gets bad we can always hop in our comfy travel trailer to get us comfy…Dena did most of the work setting up as I struggled with the tent ~ you can just see behind us the peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains ~ choosing a perfect spot just in front of the Tennessee streams where the fishing is amazing.  At least I hope so as that was the plan for dinner ~ back up is the pot of soup simmering on the campfire along with a kettle of hot water for tea or maybe hot cocoa later…lunch is the sandwiches that we grabbed just before entering the park ~ you can also set we set up some nibbles of wine and cheese when we get back from fishing…ummm Dena is yelling at me from the stream so gotta get going ~ Y’all take care and we will be back soon ♥

Geisha girls…

Geisha Girls
Dena came up with the idea of this blog and I truly thought what a great idea and jumped into doing it enthusiastically until trying to find the hair, makeup took probably as long as the RL training to become a Geisha ~ laughing as that is so not true ~ for about a week now am having some major issues trying to sign in to the SL website so I could look at Marketplace from outside SL ~ without going into a lot of detail just saying it is getting frustrating after 4 days and not fixed *grumpy face*…still the idea finally got going with a bit of creative finesse as you can see by the pic above ~ what I said about the training for Geisha’s is true as the time relates to approximately 6 years ~ not just about the makeup or wardrobe but as a geisha you study music, language, dance and yes the traditional tea ceremony…also learning the proper way to speak, act and even walk in  in a floor-length kimono without tripping over her hem, and to pour sake so that her kimono sleeve doesn’t dip into the cup. In a group of men and geisha, she learns whom to greet first and how low to bow when greeting each person. She learns how to flatter a shy man, an arrogant man and a disinterested man with equal success…There is also the art of fixing your hair, wearing the kimono and the clogs that keep the hem from dragging on the ground without falling over…sadly in today’s world there are fewer than a thousand registered geishas as most females will go through that process as part of their family heritage or because it is a very romantic endeavor ♥  Side note is that all geisha females are single and if they decide to marry they must retire ~ also the first geishas were men, not women♥♥ Not a profession I would have ever considered as it takes most up to two hours just to get dressed not counting putting on makeup…

who is he…

Clyde
He grew up during the Depression era ~ born to dirt poor farmers in Texas he found himself always on the wrong side of the law mostly due to his older brothers influence ~ arrested various times he spent time in prison yet he was still searching for something ~ love ♥ He found forever love with a 19-year-old waitress ~ both only want to be together yet desperate hard times called for him and her to rob, fleece, steal and eventually murder ~ those last acts of cold-blooded killings finally led to the ambush and murder of both♥  You and I both have read, watched movies about them ~ who is he ~ who is this man who was so desperate to find love he did whatever to be with her ~ why his name is Clyde Barrow, of course, ~ taking his pic is his forever love Bonnie Parker
