Lucas & I spy a busy week ahead for Fedoralady



Oh, I wish I had your speed, grace and stamina, dearest Lucas. It would come in handy next week.

It’s been a very busy Sunday for me. I gave Benny a haircut and got my own hair colored–it’s a bit darker now, and that pesky grey/white seems to have been covered well (took two boxes of color). I built a Facebook page for Pecan Ridge Productions (you are cordially invited to go and “like” it at and there’s a Twitter Account now, too. Now I’ve got to find someone who can build a website for us.  Any takers?

I managed to sneak in some time playing with the pups, enjoying the lovely spring weather and doing a bit of reading. I finished “proofing” the Relay video for sound and Benny and I discussed plans for the Arts Council intro and other aspects of covering that production this week.

Between recording the performances Monday and Tuesday nights, editing the footage and rendering the finished vid, assisting with the specialty videos we’ve made to be shown during the production, and selling the POTR DVDs to audience and cast members Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, it’s gonna be a busy week.  Keep me and Benny in your prayers that we will hold up OK. This is really important to our business, and that business is really important to our income and to adding some things we need to build this production company.  You know, it takes money to make money, right?

So, some more Luscious Lucas to share with you along with the acknowledgement that you may not see as much of me in the next week.  But I will be thinking of all of you!  May we all be blessed with a happy, healthy and productive week.








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. Best of luck to you and Benny this week–starting up a new business is so hard, I wish there was something I could offer in the way of help, but I don’t know what it would be. Do your best to get as much rest as you can when you can and don’t push yourself TOO hard. Thanks for the lovely photos of Lucas, surely the sexiest, most gorgeous spy ever–you are in my thoughts always.

    • It is tough and it’s frustrating and I feel overwhelmed at times, I have to be honest. I will try to pace myself and not overdo and end up in worse shape than ever. And you’re welcome for Lucas–he made ME feel better. 😉

      • Uh-huh. You promise to take care, now? If you don’t look after you, I’m going to have to tell the lads and you know that they have the power to hold you down and make you take your medicine, they and their feline allies.

        Ah, Lucas, SND and so lovely! He’ll know what to do with you, alright…

  2. Exciting times for you both- sending you good luck vibes (I must be the last person in cyberspace not to be on FB but I would ‘like’ you if I could!)

    • Actually, you aren’t–I had a Facebook account for awhile, but never could seem to get the hang of navigating my way around it. So I just didn’t use it for a pretty good while, and they deleted me. Oh, I still get emails about people trying to contact me through FB, but when I go in to try to see what it’s about, I get nowhere–so I just don’t anymore. I will, however, try to get my housemate to go in and “like” you–she’s a big FB fan.

      • Bollyknickers you are not the only person in cyberspace not to be on FB, My husband and I both are not. There is no plans to unless we are made to. My oldest son is and the rest of the family keeps him updated on the happening. That is when he checks in. At 21 he is no longer needing to be there that much.

        • TBPH, I prefer Twitter to Facebook. I have had an FB account for a while but really haven’t used it much for quite a while. However, many of my local acquaintances and friends ARE on Facebook, and we are trying to build our name locally as these are the people who will hire us and who will buy the DVDs from events. Realistically, you have to be willing to delve into social media nowadays to promote your business because so many people do use these resources.

          I prefer to keep my Twitter life under my real name where I mostly confine myself to Richarding. Any Richarding on Facebook is done in a closed group. 😉

          BTW my understanding is a lot of teens and young adults are abandoning FB because there are too many old fogeys like me there now LOL

        • What’s odd for me is that, other than my housemate, none of my close friends are on FB. Of course, a lot of that is because we all came to the computer thing when we were older, and other than keeping in touch with each other and shopping occasionally and (for me) doing art research (for work), we just never got into using it all that much. My best friend (in Tennessee) who is a teacher is now doing far more of her school-related work on the computer because she has to, and another friend up here (also a school teacher) is doing the same, but it’s because it’s now required. What can I tell you–I guess none of us will ever be computer geeks (sigh!)

          • The only reason I originally had a Facebook account is my boss required it for work. same with Twitter, although I never tweeted. I did end up creating a personal account after I was laid off. My one sister is on FB quite a lot because it has allowed her to get back in touch with a lot of her old school chums (and it’s allowed me to touch base with some people I hadn’t seen in more than 25 years myself). But I don’t care about playing Farmville or Candy Crush or any number of other activities they have going on there. Just not interested. I would rather spend time at the blog and on Twitter with like-minded folks.

            • And thank God for that! I have never had any affinity for computer games, whereas my housemate can play them for hours on end and I don’t know how she does it–I think I’d lose (what little is left) of my mind. I’d rather read or watch a movie or be working on a needlepoint or my design for my Thorin doll. I saw one for sale on Ebay the other day–he looks like a Japanese samurai instead of what I’m hoping my Thorin will shape up to be. But we would far rather have you on the blog, Angie!

              • I’d rather be here, too! Reading, watching a good film, drawing, doing photo edits, listening to music–all appeal much more to me.

              • I’ve got at least 7 books stacked up right now to read which I haven’t forged my way through yet, plus 6 needlepoint projects in various stages of completion, plus my Thorin. Between that and kitties and housework (you know, RL stuff), I have more than enuf to occupy my time.

      • I think my sons lack of wanting to be on FB is he is bored with it. His close friends don’t use it that much either. They are texting or on skpy or he is on one of the forums talking that way. They over do it high school and it gets old fast.
        Part of my not being on FB has to do with my husbands job, someone could make a target out of me or him and that would be bad.

        • That’s certainly understandable. People seem to put so much stuff on there that turns out to be too much information for my taste.

          • Let me tell you, when a candidate turned in a resume for a job at the paper, one of the first things that was done was to check them out on Facebook. If they had a lot of questionable content–you know, pics of them partying hard, that sort of thing–they pretty much were ruled out then and there.

            • Yikes–can’t even imagine. I guess I just figure my life (for the most part) is simply too bloody boring to interest anyone else that much. The closest I get is writing reviews for Amazon for things that I like (or in some cases, resoundingly don’t like). Plus, I hate pictures of myself–would NEVER put those up for anyone to see, especially people I don’t even know!

              • I’ve been amazed at what some people put out there for everyone to see. It’s not just celebs of a certain ilk that do it–a lot of young people in particular don’t seem to understand the ramifications of having half-nude photos of you putting your tongue down someone’s throat publicly displayed can be. *sigh*

              • And here I am worrying because I always seem to photograph looking like a deranged chipmunk.

              • The teen today just don’t get what they put on-line today could hurt them later in life. Half nude, try all the way and nothing like pictures of ones self and friends underage drinking and out of there minds. Also the older worker is going to be in the workforce longer and we are going to look better by not sharing everything. We just had this in my Monday evening Interpersonal Communication class. The things that my husband has seen in his job, scary.

              • It’s a sign of how immature they still are not to have some notion that these kinds of hi-jinks can really come back and bite them one day.

  3. Angie and Benny good luck on your business and praying that you stay well this week. Take time to rest so you don’t get run down.
    Lovely pictures of Lucas.

  4. I have liked and commented over at fb. I truly wish you all success. I know how difficult it is to start and promote a business even as you try to do the best job you can. Hang in there. And remember certain offers made… (I could wish I were a webdesigner, but I have near-zero knowledge about what that entails.)
