Celebrate with a little RA


WordPress is being contrary or I would have loaded more graphics. Oh, well, hope you enjoy what’s on tap! Although I now look at the above item with clearer eyesight than earlier and it looks as if Mr. A has extra hair hanging off his ear LOL Ah, well . . .

About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. I thought it was just my laptop or the local server, but I guess it is WordPress that’s being obnoxious and recalcitrant. Don’t these people understand that we need our vitamin RA?

    • I’ve had two posts I was working on disappear completely and it started balking while loading the photos after the three in this post. I made several more attempts and then gave up. So I am thinking it is WP.

  2. WordPress does seem to be “off” this evening!

    Seriously, I am so addicted to Richarding! He brightens my days and brings me up when I’m feeling blue!! Oh, what song is that from!! It just popped into my head! I’ll probably think of it around 3 am! A little (or a lot) of Richard everyday is good for what ails you!

    • You may very well be thinking of another song, but Sweet Home Alabama features similar lyrics. “They pick me up when I’m feelin’ blue, now how about you?” 😉

      • Yes…that’s it! I feel as if I put two songs together. Ether “Brings me up” is from something else or I’ve just rewritten the lyrics in my head.

        • Yeah, there’s some other song or songs too, but I can’t place them right now. It really tickles me that people all over the world know “Sweet Home Alabama.” I bet when Lynryd Skynrd recorded it they had no idea the ultimate impact of that song ( the title of which is now on our license plates). When we drove home from SD (1600 miles) just before we hit the state line coming into Alabama Benny would hit the button to play it and when it says, “Turn it up,” he would. I would sing and he would lip-synch. 😉

          • Love it! Lynryd Skynrd could make everyone a little “Southern”. I feel my head boppin to the beat right now!!

  3. I would never have guessed that being addicted to something would be so darned enjoyable!!! 😉 He makes my day – EVERY day!! 😀

  4. I read something that has me puzzled. A news article says the the British Royal Family has a worth of 1 billion dollars. How is that? Do any of them work? Now don’t get me wrong. I like the royal family. I just want to know how one gets to be worth that much without a job. Or do they have jobs?

    Anyway, I think the Queen is so cute.

    • The Queen’s adorable. She reminds me a little of my late mom. I think your question will probably be best answered by a Brit . . . I can say in terms of jobs, they are often expected to carry out a lot of appearances at various events in support of charities and the like. You might see that as a job. Both Prince William and Harry serve in the military. There are those spectacular Crown Jewels, all the various residences . . .

      • They probably make some of their money from all of the tourists trooping through their houses and castles. I’ve donated some money that way to the Royals myself!

      • Quite a bit of that wealth is personal, inherited money and property, not the property of the state. Certainly, a lot of it is not “liquid”, nor could it be sold for anything like its assessed value. The more obvious trappings of wealth, such as the Crown Jewels and Buckingham Palace, are owned by the state, rather than by the royal family. The Queen, like many royals in constitutional monarchies, works hard in that she has to read everything the Prime Minister sends her, so that she knows the effect of legislation; she has many charitable activities and many state functions, for which she has to do her homework and prepare speeches; she is still the head of the Order of the Garter, and she still confers knighthoods; she has to entertain visiting heads of state; she has to manage her household budget and her staff, in addition to managing and maintaiing her private property; and she has to maintain a standard of decorum in keeping with her position. And she does all this at an age when most people would be retired, if they lived that long.

        • There is a lot of responsibility that falls on royalty even under a constitutional monarchy. It’s not all peaches and cream. I still think of her standing throughout that river celebration in that miserable weather at an age, as you say,when many would be retired, and looking splendid doing so.

          • I know that I couldn’t stand that long or walk up and down all these stairs like she did the other day unless I was holding on to something or someone! She is amazing!

            • I think that even though I’m less than half her age, the Queen is in a much better shape physically than me! She’s made of strong stuff, that lady!
