Dancin'...& Fiddlin'...With The One Who Brung Me!

Oh mylanta y'all!

As SweetT pointed out just this morning, we've got...gulp...3 weeks to finish getting ready for the Greatest Show on Dirt!

Like that ain't bad enough...time changes this Sunday and I'm gonna lose an hour.

What the hay?  Don't they realize I don't have an hour to spare, much less give back?  I need every single, stinkin' second I can scrounge up before March 30th!

(Personally...I think they should just choose one and leave it at that, but heck...they can't even leave the date for switching alone so why would I expect 'em to make it easy!)
So-o-o...not only is that hour stolen lost, but my friendly neighborhood weatherman is calling for rain all weekend.  People, people, people...what are y'all trying to do to this chubby lady?  Doncha know I'm dancin' as fast as I can?

What's a girl to do you ask?  Why she gets out the ol' Big Chief tablet, her trusty Berol Handhugger and she makes lists, prioritizing everything from what's trailer ready to what's suitcase worthy!

First order of the day...see to it the Man is duded up and decked out!
See that arm sticking out?  Yeppers...that belongs to the one and only Cat Daddy!
For those of y'all who are new readers, I think I need to stop here and explain a few cat facts about my very own Cat in the hat starting with this is no normal, flesh and blood mortal.  Oh no y'all.  He is the stuff legends are made of 'round Zapp Hall...and especially at T's blog party!  Don't believe me?  Ask her!
You mark my words unbelievers.  When the photos start filtering in from the show...I promise you up and down...Cat Daddy is gonna be front and center in more than just a few of 'em with some beautiful woman...or two...or three...draped all over him and lookin' all like the cat who ate the canary!
Some blame me for the madness he generates when he struts his stuff, but I ask you...
did I make him the strong, silent type of man women go crazy for?

No-o-o...I don't think so!

Did I infuse him with enough sex appeal for an army?

No-o-o...ain't a hypodermic big enough for that!

Tell me...did I teach him how to walk the stray cat strut?

No-o-o!  That walk comes from riding the rodeo circuit oh so many years ago.

Am I responsible for perpetuating the myth?

Ummm...yeah...sorta kinda...
but y'all are just as much to blame for his inflated ego big head rep as me!

You don't hear me squealing "Cat Daddy" when him and that dolly llama stroll into y'all?

No ladies...that would be y'all and all the crazy Zappers we play with at the show!

Who knew when I was exaggerating embellishing polishing his image just a smidge, that I would actually get so close to the truth.  He is a quiet man.  He does have a certain je ne sais quoi about him...and he does strut. he does strut.

  Those are absolutes.

Is he drop-dead-Johnny-Depp gorgeous?

Only to me...and himself...and maybe my sweet little Georgia Honey Baked.

Is he the king of the jungle?

No...more like lord of the flies!

Will I have him hosed down and spiffed up for y'all come show time?

You betcha!

The line'll start at the back of the show for hugs...but I am open to bribery for preferential placement.

And just so ya will not be held responsible for any eye scratching that may occur while waiting for the chance to pose next to the MAN!

Good Lord, what have I been missin???
I just might have to head out your way to meet this big ole Cat Daddy.
You sure have the women following after, you are a strong woman! LOL!


Rebecca said...

Hmmmm...Missed meeting him last time round, sounds like you have your hands full!
Wishing you speeeed and productivity!
3 weeks huh?


Since I go to the mud pit to buy, I am busy consolidating the junk in my barn so that my husband won't think it isn't necessary to go pick up more.

Wait until you see tomorrow's post! It will most definately go with that suit. Good thing I'm outa town, or I bet someone would be at my door. No not you, all his fans!!

Seriously, how could ANYONE not know who Cat Daddy is? If I wasn't so far away, I'd be there in a sec to help you get things ready (not including Cat Daddy, of course!). I love the Stray Cat Strut reference, I am a huge Brian Seltzer fan (since the beginning 80s!).

Good luck with your rainy weekend and 3 weeks, girlfriend, I know you can do anything you set your mind to (and I know you KNOW it too... that's why I love ya).

I really don't think it's fair about the hour heading back home though, we'll miss it!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Brian Setzer... I always do that and Shayne rolls his eyes at me. What can I say, it's giving back all those hours over the years.

Greatest show on dirt! That is too funny and perfect for Round Top. You need to copyright that or something.

He's so lucky to have you. Twice over.

I am counting the days! I hope you get some pretty weather for getting ready and loaded!

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

I think the weather will be better next week, just take a deep breath. I know you will get it all together and have a beautiful booth. Hope I get to see y'all there.
Hugs~~~ Daphne

You know to whom his heart belongs :) And are so kind to share his charms even for just a little while! I know you are getting SO excited!!! You remember the post you wrote a couple of years ago, where you described "in detail" your arrival in the midst of the muddy wet slippery field? I laughed til I cried....

Thank you for the birthday wishes....I am trying to forget them from here on out ;)
