    Rachel, congratulations to your honey on his graduation! That's an accomplishment for sure! And I'm sure your big smile of pride was the only thing people noticed [​IMG]

    I once got as dressed up as I ever get dressed up to go to church, and arrived just in time to note that I was still wearing my slippers.

    I think we talked about that on the Porch one time, LG, and I had visions of everyone of us reading that and nodding our heads as we giggled 'cause we'd all done something that at least once! :)

    Well, I figured at least my hair was laying down. It's that in-between length, really too long to spike it up, but too short to lay down on it's own nicely. it's still kind of soft and fuzzy, Honey calls it Troll Doll hair [​IMG]. I finally put some hair gunk in it for the ceremony so it would lay down.

    OMG, troll doll hair, lol. I haven't thought of troll dolls forever. My sister and I used to have so much fun with those. They were small enough to slip in a pocket and smuggle into church.

    Good grief! I've had too many margaritas tonight! I popped in, saw the troll, and then I just sat back desperately trying to remember when I'd gotten out of my fancy dress and took a selfie!!

    Hey everyone, I wanted to give you a heads-up about a new contest that just started. The link is in my signature if you'd like to check it out. It's a photo contest of kids with poultry. I hope we get a lot of entries, this one should be really cute!

    Tonight was the last night of Sessions - awards night. This was a total surprise. They've only given out two of these before. Tonight I was given the Sweetheart Award for the support I've given. Then the gentleman who gave me the award announced to all present that although I was being recognized for all I do to support Ken in his Masonic work, the primary reason was "one all in the organization will agree with.....you can't spend 5 minutes with Diane and not come away smiling and feeling better than you did before." I also received the first standing ovation when he made the presentation. Makes it worth getting into all those fancy clothes when most sensible people are out feeing and watering their chickens.
