White Lies, Football time in Tennessee, Beautiful Women Month and

I am so very thankful that's if Friday. I plan to sleep late tomorrow. It's going to be raining and I can't think of anything better to do. If you wake me up, it had better be an emergency...... ;-)


Have you ever told a white lie? You are going to love this, especially all of the ladies who bake for church events.

Alice Grayson was to bake a cake for the Baptist Church Ladies' Group in Tuscaloosa, but forgot to do it until the last minute. She remembered it the morning of the bake sale and after rummaging through cabinets, found an angel food cake mix and quickly made it hile drying her hair, dressing, and helping her son pack up for
Scout camp.

When Alice took the cake from the oven, the center had dropped flat
and the cake was horribly disfigured.she said, "Oh dear, there is not
time to bake another cake."

This cake was important to Alice because she did so want to fit in
at her new church, and in her new community of friends. So, being
inventive, she looked around the house for something to build up the
center of the cake.

Alice found it in the bathroom-a roll of Toilet paper. She plunked
it in and then covered it with icing. Not only did the finished
product look beautiful, it looked perfect.

Before she left the house to drop the cake by the church and head
for work, Alice woke her daughter and gave her some money and
specific instructions to be at the bake sale the moment it opened at
9:30 and to buy the cake and bring it home.

When the daughter arrived at the sale, she found the attractive,
perfect cake had already been sold. Amanda grabbed her cell phone and
called her mom. Alice was horrified-she was beside herself.
Everyone would know! What would they think? She would be
ostracized, talked about, ridiculed! All night, Alice lay awake in
bed thinking about people pointing fingers at her and talking about
her behind her back.

The next day, Alice promised herself she would try not to think
about the cake and would attend the fancy luncheon/bridal shower at
the home of a fellow church member and try to have a good time. Alice
did not really want to attend because the hostess was a snob who more
than once had looked down her nose the fact Alice was a single parent
and not from the founding families of Tuscaloosa, but having already
RSVP'd , she couldn't think of a believable excuse to stay home.
The meal was elegant, the company was definitely upper crust old
South and to Alice's horror, the cake in question was presented for
dessert! Alice felt the blood drain from her body when she saw the
cake! She started out of her chair to tell the hostess all about it,
but before she could get to her feet, the Mayor's wife said, "what a
beautiful cake!"

Alice still stunned, sat back in her chair when she heard the
hostess (who was a prominent church member) say, "Thank you, I baked
it myself."

Alice smiled and thought to herself, "God is good."

It's Football Time In Tennessee ---- GO VOLS GO!!!!!

GO VOLS GO!!!!!!

Our friend Wendy aka Robs... is going to the game in Fayettville this weekend for the Arkansas and Alabama game. She said that she will be calling howgs and her hubby will be Rolling with the Tide....


Good Luck to the University of Kentucky Wildcats as they travel to Gainesville, FL to play in the Florida Gators in "The Swamp".....


Like I've said before my two favorite teams are the University of Tennessee and who ever plays Florida!!!!

4 Football Fans ~

Four football fans were on their way to a game when one noticed a foot
sticking out of the bushes by the side of the road.
They stopped and discovered a nude female, dead drunk.
Out of respect and propriety, the Kentucky fan took off his cap and place it over her face.
The Arkansas fan took off his cap and placed
it over her right breast.
The Tennessee fan took off his cap and placed it over her left breast.
Following their lead, the Gator fan took off his cap and placed it over her
The police were called and when the officer arrived, he conducted his
First, he lifted the Kentucy cap, replace it and wrote down some notes.
Next, he lifted up the Arkansas cap, replaced it and wrote down some notes.
Then, he lifted the Tennessee cap, replaced it and wrote down some more
The officer then lifted the Gator's cap, replaced it, then lifted it again,
replaced it, lifted it a third time, and replaced it one last time.
The Gator fan was getting upset and finally asked, "What are you, a pervert
or something?" "Why do you keep lifting and looking, lifting and looking?
"Well," said the officer. "I'm confused; normally when I look under a Gator
hat, I find an asshole."

And finally.....

Did you know that it's Beautiful Women Month? Well, it is and that means you and me !!!
Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share
her "beauty tips." It was read at her funeral years later.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness...
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/he r fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone...
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
If you share this with another woman, something good will happen. .
You will boost another woman's self esteem, and she will know that
you care about her.
Well I shared this with all the Beautiful Women that I know!
Have a wonderful weekend all!
Lee Ann
