Hope this puts a smile on your face. :o)

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment
community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection
and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities
turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry
Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and
Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a
man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in
show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not
considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked
schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty
old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John
Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is
also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the
occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone
else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift .
Twin and I laughed so hard we were crying.
We are VERY BUSY with our new business and will be posting some hints in a day or two so get ready neighbors.

BELIVE is our new motto

We have been up to absolutely no gosh darn good!!! LOL Actually twin and I are opening our very own home based business. Ya know how you want to do something but somehow never quite picture yourself as being successful at anything or you have a fear of failure? Well, I think blogging has given us a feeling of YES WE CAN...All of you are so talented. We even have a writer among us.( French writing her first blog novel Desperate Housewives of Blogville.) Now that is quite the undertaking. So we thought why not? Ya never know unless you try

Soon we will be giving hints and have a BIG give away so PLEASE don't leave us even if we aren't that good at posting. Actually it's my fault cause I don't know how to retrieve pictures on my computer so I have to have Fern or my daughter do that part for me. (And I think I can get a business up and running LOL!! Who am I trying to kid?)

Anyway, stay tuned neighbors, I hope we won't disappoint. HAPPY WEEKEND:o)

Our Home Away from Home for 5 days and nights.......Let the fun begin...

Cher was a no could she? We traveled thousands of miles. Oh well, we'll have to find something else to entertain ourselves.

These two put on a FANTASTIC show. Our seats were unbelievable!! Marie is so much thinner and prettier in person. And Donny...this guy knows how to wear a pair of jeans.

Getting ready for Donny, I forgot his favorite color is purple. Dang, I actually look like I have boobs in this top. It is now my favorite!LOL

For some reason if you click on this picture and enlarge it -it looks like I have raccoon eyes! I don't know why. My eyes also look brown but they're blue. So go ahead, click know you want to!!

Fern getting up close and personal with Whoopie...her wax figure that is.

Our last night we went upstairs to see Rita. She was SO funny and she even kept it clean. After, we bought her book and she came out and autographed it. She is very pretty but to me she looked like she has had work done. It's hard to explain but her face looked tight.

We had more pics but didn't want to bore you with a bunch of sight seeing pictures. We had a fabulous time. For those of you that are wondering if we won any Until the last night that is. We won some back, not all, but we didn't lose considering we didn't have to pay for our suite, meals, limos, air fair, the shows and we also had manicures, pedicures, and facials!

Talk about heaven!! Fern's boss is the BEST and I am so thankful I am her twin. They love
me too !!!

A mom has bragging rights

This is my (Fran) daughter's fresh/soph tennis team. Lexi is front row third from left.

Lovely girl isn't she? First report card this year was a 4.0!! We are so proud.

She and her best friend Bri defended their FIRST place doubles in the N.C.I.C. tennis tournament this past weekend. Congratulations girls and great job!!! Two years in a row. Just wait until next year we'll have a three-peat.

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Debbie for doing our blog back ground. We are so pleased. It was so sweet of her.

Vegas Was Suite-ness

Come on in neighbors.

Our first night in Vegas. We thought we would try taking our picture in the mirror. Some one started it on their blog but we're not sure who.

My camera was acting up the whole vacations so we don't have as many pictures as we would like but there will be more to come. This mirror was HUGE and BEAUTIFUL.

This is entering our new "HOME" for the week. So clean and neat...just the way we like it.

Good there's a place to store Fern's wine!! Need that night cap! Our own mini bar.

Now off to see what the bedroom looks like. Think they will leave us some bed mints? Oh, I just remembered Fern is on a diet...all the more for me lol.

Looks so inviting but we need to go down and play some slots....can sleep later ZZZZZ

Good we have a t.v. We both like to watch a little t.v. before bed.

Oh, goodie a place to sleep or read a good book.
Fern's boss bought us each a book called The Shack. She read it and she loved it. When we're done with it we are going to do a blog on it. Suppose to be life changing. Her sister-in-law told her about it and now she is buying it for everyone!!

Plenty of room to put on our make-up. No sharing going on here.

Our spa tub. Just what ya need after walking the strip. No Buffie we didn't say WORKING the strip! :o)
We will be posting the best pictures of our trip this week. We had a WONDERFUL time.

This one if for BUFFIE

This one is for Buffie from My Left Foot. I wish I knew how to put the name and then you could click on it and go to her blog but I don't :o( Those of you who visit her know she was having a problem with pigeons. Twin and I saw this sign while we were in Vegas. Fran was laughing and said we should take a picture just for Buffie. So this one is for you, our friend.

Thank you Nikkicrumpet !!! Now I know how to LINK. You guys are the greatest.

Yes, we will be posting our Vegas trip. Trying to catch up with everything. Wait until ya see our hotel room!! Very nice.

We're BACK!

Just wanted to let all of you know that we are back. We had a WONDERFUL time. Just one disappointment.....we DIDN'T get to see Cher. She cancelled her show due to throat problems. Before we left for Vegas someone told me their boss went out to see her and his show got cancelled too. I guess the dry weather doesn't agee with her.

On a lighter note I got to TOUCH Marie Osmond's hand!!! We had GREAT seats and she walked passed me. I could of touched Donny's hand but I would of had to stand up, step down a step and walk a few steps over (he was walking on the table by us) I was afraid I would trip so I kept my butt seated!!

We will be blogging much more later. I am back to work and kinda tired so give us a few days to get it together.

Missed all of you and will be trying to catch up on your blogs.

We're Leaving On a Jet Plane........

We leave tomorrow morning. My boss asked us what we thought about coming home Tues. instead of Mon. to give us an extra day. Of course we said YES!!

I'm almost packed. It always takes me awhile. I'm trying to pack LIGHT!! You know how that goes.

Fran and I are not big drinkers though I must say I have started to drink a glass of wine at night to help me sleep. We do plan on having a few cocktails while we are out there.

Well, I would like to lose about 10 pounds. I'm 10 pounds heavier then Fran. About 2 months ago we were the same weight. I must admit I have been getting into the ice cream a lot lately. We use to be SO SKINNY we hated it. We could eat whatever we wanted and not gain an ounce. Oh, how I MISS those days. I have some LOVE handles. I could love the whole neighborhood with these. lol I guess the dieting will have to wait until AFTER my trip. My will power is staying home lol.


Okay, maybe I will win lots of this and I will be able to afford a personal trainer when I get back to help take off the 10 pounds before the trip and the other 10 pounds during the trip!!

Well, no matter what win or lose I know we will have a great time. We will be taking lots of pictures! Have a blessed week everyone :o)
