Here we are, almost the end of the week. Ready for a long 4th of July weekend. Hubby has a full five days off, beginning tomorrow as it is his Friday not to have to go into the office, and no work Monday for the holiday. I have several projects for him to attend to while he's around the house, that's for sure.
I am watching the welcoming ceremony at the White House for Japan's Prime Minister Koizumi. Is this guy cool or what? First, any visitor asking for a trip to Graceland is ok by me. He's been a guest at Camp David and at Prairie Chapel Ranch so you know he's big buds with the president. I just like him. And his semi-hippie hair is cool, too.
Now, you know I am way over Oprah. I have very little use for her but now I am disgusted to read that I must purchase the new issue of her stupid "O" Magazine. Why? Well, there is to be an interview with Harper Lee published in it. How can I not read that? Ms. Lee hasn't published anything since 1983, which was a book review. She is to discuss how she became a reader as a child in rural Alabama during the Depression. The issue is billed as Oprah's "special summer reading issue", so there you go. She is 80 years old now and it will be interesting to read what she has to say.
And about another interesting old woman - last night on tv we saw a little news story on the birthday of a woman celebrating her 103rd year on this earth. Yikes! What did she ask for as her gift? A stripper! I'm not kidding. She wanted something along the lines of a Chippendale guy but the senior's home got her a dancer dressed up in a gorilla's costume. It was all a bit bizarre, but she looked great for 103 and appeared to be perfectly lucid.
We should all be so lucky.
