THE TEXAS TWISTER

By most standards the Texas Twister would be one of those huge tornadoes bearing down from west Texas into Central Texas....OR it could be Lady L in her "twister" mode.  That can be defined two ways... one by the disaster left as she plays from room to room... to that tiny twist of hair on her fingers when she is so tired she cannot see straight.

We have put a few miles on the little red wagon already and her favorite thing in the house is the baby grand piano.  She stays "STUCK" to that most of the day.  "STUCK" is her favorite word, no wait, second favorite. Her favorite is NO NO NO.

When she is in her car seat or you are holding her and do not want to put her down she is decisively STUCK and lets you know it.   She had forgotten we had birds.. Max and Gracie... and she calls them BORRR YDS... with a northern accent.  Makes Terry and I chuckle to hear her stringing the words together.

(I am inserting a later comment right here as I just received a very pointed email that I had insulted the north with the term Yankee and my referral to the language difference, so I removed it. I am from the north. I always considered myself a Yankee. That is where Lady L picks up some of her accented words. (Her mom is from Nacogdoches Texas and her Dad from Oklahoma.)   If you are from the south you are constantly teased for the long drawl and lazy words that miss syllables and often half their letters.  So apologizes to Wm Fack as there was no malicious intent when I wrote my blog AND to my NY Family, Billie I do NOT want to hear from you!  I miss hearing my grandmother's sweet German accent... and I miss hearing "pop" instead of soda. I miss much of the language I grew up with...but I was moved to Texas at a young age attached to my parents. I married a Dallas boy, born fourth or fifth generation Dallas... and we are always teasing each other back and forth about things like this. It is rather nice to hear my granddaughter mimic some of it back to us.)

Short blogs and long days from the Golden Pond. Before I forget. We have huge bees buzzing the house. BIG black bees with yellow on their backs.  Any ideas how to lure them away from the house?  Makes it hard to go outside with Lady L.
