A New Rule…

We were sittin’ at the Outback, drinkin’ tasty adult beverages when Roy said, “I gonna to make a new rule.”

Oh shit!

What have I done now?

I’m not allowed to mow… without supervision. I am not allowed to use the weed eater, becuz I hurt myself the one and only time I used it.

I’m banned from havin’ candles. Set one cat on fire and all candles are banned!

I am not to flirt, dance, or sit in cop cars becuz all those things lead to sex.

And those are just the tip of the iceberg!

And he wants to add another one to the long list of rules.

Don’t think that the rules don’t go both ways. I have decreed many myself.

And he sticks to them… If I can’t get in a cop car, he can’t shoot furry critters! Both of those goes against our grains!!

He’s must always remember what team he’s on at all times… MY TEAM!! Team Nadine!! Defend my honor at all times against StupidAss People… like Eddie and Loretta! I may be off my rocker but I still should be respected!

He is never to drink alone. If I’m out and about I may need him to come and get me. He said, “I have provided you with a car that is in tip top runnin’ condition and you should never break down.” But what If I am taken to jail!!??!!

He’s not allowed to fart in the bathwater! I think that is just self-explanatory.

So there I sat fearin’ the worst, and he said, “I feel we should never have a major conversation while drinkin’.”

Whew! Good call!! He was so mad at me for the last major conversation we had, he barely spoke to me for 3 days!! And we are on day 4 and he’s makin’ a rule.

And then he sewed up the loophole…. “no conversations good or bad.”


There goes gettin' him drunk and talkin’ him into cruises!!!


Oh yeah! I GOT SCREWED!!!

Random Thursday…


Check them out!!

This week’s Question: RT2100_3194pencil
I can’t find the original of me in the bunny suit but I guess with as much skin that’s showin’ it’s for the best!

Can you guess who is mine?
She will play me when they make the movie of my life. She’s willin’ to put on a few pounds for a role.
And Reese Witherspoon will play my baby sister as she will die her hair to RubyJune’s Natural color… brunette!!!

About the bunny suit, my daughter needed a photo of me for her Facebook Profile photo for Mother’s day… “Mom, tag a photo for me to use and Not the Bunny Outfit.”
It’s as close as I’m gettin' to a pinup photo!
The ladies provided a link for you to follow to find a doppelganger but I already knew!

The Liebster Award…

Jill has been so gracious to bestow upon me a Liebster Award… I am blessed to have such fabulous friends.
What Is The Liebster Award?
"Liebster" is German for "dearest", from Liebe, the verb 'to love'. This award is given to bloggers who are up and coming and who have less than 200 followers.
Cool Huh?
Here's How It Works:
  1. Each person must post 11 random things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you and create 11 questions for bloggers you've tagged.
  3. Choose up to 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
  4. Go to their page and tell them.
  5. No tag backs.
Well I don’t tag… so no pressure there! Whew! I never know who to pick becuz someone always gets left out… and I Leibe Everyone!!!
Yeah, that’s not the right way to use Liebe… sue me.
Check out Jill’s World! She’s a doll!
11 Random Things:
  1. For the past 25 years I’ve had a problem with sleepin’. I basically catnap. Sleep for 3 or 4 hours and lay awake for 3 or 4.
  2. I sleep with a body pillow to be more comfortable and to aid in sleepin’ more that 4 hours… Maybe.
  3. Roy hates the body pillow. “Don’t you let that get between us.” We call it my Extra Husband. I kept it from being between us for about 2 weeks, but my Extra Husband is between my knees and he just rolls with me.
  4. Roy has bad sleepin’ habits too. He snores, farts, makes strange noises, and worse of all, he fidgets.
  5. I hate fidgetin’!! With a passion. I used to share a bed with my sister as a child, she fidgeted. I would give her to the count of 10 to make her nest and then not move again or I would kick her outta bed. And she took me serious! When the girls were babies, they would wave their arms around in the air and I would reach over and pull their arms down and we all went back to sleep. Roy though, I would have to hog tie him!!
  6. He sleeps with a pillow between his knees… up until 3 weeks ago. “It’s time to grow up. And I think there’s a critter livin’ in it, bitin’ me at nights.”
  7. There wasn’t. But he’s been sleepin’ without a pillow between his knees. He hasn’t slept well since “Growin’ Up”!
  8. Roy told me to get a pillowcase for my Extra Husband, “he’s furry and I hate that!” And I replied, “you’re furry and I don’t put you in a pillowcase!”
  9. My Extra Husband is cuddly and warm. He doesn’t snore, fart, make strange noises, or best of all HE DOESN’T FIDGET!!
  10. The other night, I rolled over with my Extra Husband between my knees and was oh so comfy when Roy rolled over and thru his leg over MY EXTRA HUSBAND!! He slept peacefully all night long.
  11. And in other news, Roy brought home a crawdad for Ruffles. We both thought Ruffles would eat it. The crawdad, Claude, is at home in the turtle tank. This am, we watched Claude sneak around and tickle Ruffles’ butt with his feelers! Scared Ruffles!! He took off to hide in his cave!!! So freakin’ funny!!
My questions:
If you could have a conversation with anyone, living or dead, who would you choose and why?
Marilyn Monroe! I want to know if JFK was all that and if I can borrow some of her clothes… Hello! Vintage!
How did you come up with the name of your blog?
It is a play on “All Along The Watchtower” a Jimi Hendrix song. You know Hightower… Watchtower. And my Velvettush ID is a Damn the Man thing. My personal ID was blocked from the work pc, so I re-created myself as The VelvetTush. A ZZ Top song… Tush.
What is your dream vacation destination?
Europe or Bora Bora… both trips would fabulous!!
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? (Did you end up where you thought you would?)
A Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader or a Playboy Pinup. Since I was pregnant at 17 and wrecked my body with fat and stretch marks, that didn’t happen. No calendar of me anywhere! Dammit!
Put your iTunes, iPod, or whatever on shuffle…what’s the first song that comes up?
Allman Brothers, Whippin’ Post. Someday I feel like I’m tied to the whippin’ post and it feels like I’m dyin’.
What is your all-time favourite book?
It’s a series, Lee Childs, The Jack Reacher Novels. So good.
If you could buy anything right now, what would you buy? (Cost is irrelevant.)
A world cruise. Last time I priced it, it was like $10K per person!! I’d better start buyin’ those lottery tickets!!
What are you craving right…now?
Ice Cream… or more specifically a DQ M&M Blizzard!
What is your absolute favourite song lyric?
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.

Fly High Free Byrd
I am a byrd you can not change.
Damn The Man!!
What is my dream car?
Dad2 001
Dad2 002Dad2 003
My Daddy started for me what would be a life-long obsession of Camaros.
My oldest daughter was conceived in a Camaro.
I love that Red Car!! I drove the shit outta it for 14 years. Roy bought it for me right off the showroom floor… I kid you not!!
I was Zen with it. I drove it more than Roy!

I still learnin’ to love the yellow one. I have more boys… 5-25 ogle the Bumble Bee.

Beach, pool, or not a fan of the water?
I love it all!! I can’t swim but I don’t let that stop me from being in the pool or going to the beach.

New Link-Up…

I have been reading Linny’s Vault for a while… she and I have the same funny bone. We like the same TV shows and we both love Jeans and Converses. Her music runs a lot younger and funkier than my head bangin’ style but I won’t hold that against her. She does swaps and giveaways too.

She has a couple of friends that have joined her to create a Link-Up called Random Thursdays.randomthursday

You can sign up for a subscription and they will send an email with the subject for the week.

This week is What Is Your Favorite Summer Pastime?



Floatin’ in the pool and drinkin’ Margaritas!!

Rethinkin’ Being Zen…

 Oh Jilly!!!
Have I got a story for You!!
You know how I’m all Zen with spiders… I shower with one. One day I noticed one relaxin’ on the couch with me. It’s all good.
Right? They leave me alone and I don’t kill them. They eat the bugs I hate. It’s all Good!
And how I'm all brave with them... riiiight.
Friday morin’ Roy and I was out in the pool. He was vaccumin’ and I was just there for moral support. After we got out we went to the house to change. He got a towel and was dryin’ off and I pulled one down from the shower door to use.
I didn’t have my glasses on but out the corner of my eye I could see a spider on my boob!
HOLY O’SHIT! wolf-spider
Takin’ a shower with him is one thing or sittin’ the couch watchin’ TV is okay but him actually invadin’ my private space… like my boob… is entirely a horse of a different color!!!
All that passed thru my brain as I jumped up and down squeallin’ for Roy to get it off!!! I didn’t just slap it! I did that once and was stung by a wasp as I was drivin’ down the road!!  And that hurt like Hell!
So as long as Roy’s standin’ right there he can brush it off and I’ll be fine. The Shower Spider can go his way and I’ll go mine!!
So I stood perfectly still!!!
And squealed, “euuuuuwwww get it off! get it off!!!”
Roy brushed it off into the floor… and then trapped in a cup.
OH! MY! GOD!!!!
brown_recluse1It was NOT MY Shower Spider!!!!!!
It was a brown recluse!!!!!
Have you seen the damage that those little bastards can do??? Your skin rots off!!! Large patches of skin!!!!! I wanted to post a photo but I just can’t do that and think about my boob rottin’ off.

I was so not brave!!
I may rethink my whole Zen with Spiders approach to life.
