Lesson 405: Mind Your Own Biscuits

Hi, everyone!

Its friday, time to whip out my liquid personality.:

What did you say?
Yeah, I heard you.
I know.
My Friday night liquid personality doesn't come from water.

Mind your own biscuits:

Got to pass the time somehow while I wait for the snow to stop.

It's one of those weather weeks at the Lamp Post 
that leaves Erieites shaking their heads.
There will be a 51 degree difference between last weekend and this one.

It was cold last Saturday.

Really cold.

But, that didn't stop me and my team.

We worked out anyway.
We bundled up and got in about 45 minutes
in 4 degree temps
with a -17 wind chill.

We did it again Tuesday, too,
but it wasn't quite as cold.

What did you say?
Yeah, I heard you.

Exactly! I don't give a crap about anyone's opinion ! Especially when they aren't a part of my life! -Tosha:

Thanks for your concern, 
but we won't freeze.
If you look closely,
I was wearing my Dalmatian onesie pj's
 over my standard winter workout garb.

My onesie is not figure flattering,
nor runway worthy,
but that darn thing is handy during outdoor activity 
in the heart of an Erie, PA winter.

I wore it on a walk last weekend.

I had to walk down the road a bit to get a shot of my favorite horses,

and my favorite vineyards.

A couple of cars went by.
I saw one person point, 
and mouth the word

“Couldn't have said it any better myself...” Biscuits by Kasey Musgraves:

Salt and sugar are both white,
but neither as as bright as freshly fallen snow.

I don't mind the comments and occasional teasing though.
After all, 
I do volunteer my circus of a life to you every Friday night.

A three-ring circus!:

The Lamp Post has almost reached 200,000 visits.
Not bad for a once a week writer.

I always compare this blog to Lynn Johnson's 
For Better or For Worse comic strip

For Better or For Worse is a comic strip by Lynn Johnston that ran for 30 years, chronicling the lives of a Canadian family, The Pattersons, and their friends. The story is set in the fictitious Toronto-area suburban town of Milborough, Ontario. Johnston's strip began in September 1979, and ended the main story on August 30, 2008, with a postscript epilogue the following day.:

Eloise reminds me a little of Elly Patterson,
a Canadian wife and mother whose life is chronicled through the comic strip.

Elly is real
and dependable
and always there.

Sunday June 21, 2015 | For Better or For Worse Strip Fix:

Elly knows the deal with raising kids.

For Better or For Worse comic strip for Nov/15/2015:
Like Elly, 
Eloise is always there offering up a slice of life 

served with a cup of joy,

 a sprinkle of snark,

mind your own business quote - Google Search:

and a pinch of crazy.

I thought a lot about perception this week
and how we perceive one another.

'I stopped explaining myself when I realized people can only understand from their level of perception':

We took the kids to a Lady Lions game.

It was a great game with a victory for the blue paw prints.
The half time performance by the dance team was fun.
The gals on the squad convinced some of their college boyfriends
to do a choreographed dance number with them.

The guys were funny.
(not to mention brave)

A few in the crowd were shaking their heads,
but most laughed.

Those boys didn't care a bit.
They owned their own crazy.
Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy:
On a serious note before I close,
everyone always wants to know what I'm reading.
I always have 3 or 4 books going at a time.
This winter weekend,

nothing like a good book on a cold day:

I'll be continuing the book I started Monday.
It's a WOW.
Truly deserving of all of its praise.

I'll end tonight's post with a song from one of my country music favorites,
Kacey Musgraves.

She has some of the best lyrics in all of country music.
When I first hear a song, 
it's the lyrics that are the most meaningful to me.
The tune comes to me later.
I listen to the story of the song more than the music,
if that makes any sense.

Watch Kacey's video Biscuits, posted below.
You'll get a kick out of it for sure,
whether you like the banjo in the background or not.
The message is very, very true.

Kacey Musgraves is the best song writer! Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy:

Grow my own daisies?
I already have.
Here are some of mine from a summer post.
This photo makes me think of the warm days to come.

Enjoy the clever video from Kacey Musgraves. 
It will make you smile.
