Two Tickets To Paradise

So here's the deal pickle.

I had planned a lovely, short, charming little post about my granddaughters for Valentine's Day.

  Notice I said had?

Passion has a way of being an excellent game changer...and by passion, of course I mean Cat Daddy.

Seriously y'all. What's a gal to do when her big ol' hunka-hunka burnin' love, sweeps in and softly whispers those three little magical words in her ear...words every woman dreams of hearing?


50 PERCENT OFF!

I don't know what y'all would have done, but this stove-up old lady got frisky real quick.  Bunny hopped her happy, happy into the poodle seat, and buckled up for a trip down Lovers' Lane.


A lady should never buy and tell, but just between us lovers of old...Cat Daddy, being the manly man he is, delivered...boy and how!

Heaven help me y'all...I didn't want to stop.


More, more...I wanted more.  Room after room, we chased each other 'round 'til finally we had to stop...the checkbook was empty.


I'd love to be able to tell y'all that it only took one trip to scratch my itch, but sadly...no.  One go-round just didn't cut it...neither did a repeat or even a three-peat. 

Nope...not even close.


Only after becoming fourth time offenders did we finally call it quits.  But just so's you know, when it comes to loving what we do, we have stamina...even at our age.  Oooh y'all...I'm still blushing beet red and getting goosebumps just thinking about it.


Driving home that night, a full moon lighting our way, exhausted and happy, I turned to my big ol' Cat Daddy and breathlessly said...

"You sure know how to show a girl a good time."

(Note to self:  Be sure to remember to turn on comments so that Graycie can read how cute she is.)


Oh mylanta...at half-price off, this was a killer estate sale.
Everything was wonderful and priced to sell.  Not that it was dirt cheap by any means...hey you get what you pay for...but still reasonable for resale. When Paige has another estate sale, I'll be sure to hook y'all up...

Maybe!

Yes you tell Graycie & Bella they are two of the cutest valentines I've seen. (love that pic of you and CD)
I had to pick myself off the floor after looking at your haul. Yes I knew that's what you were talking about with the basket. OMG, those drawers, the hand, boxing gloves, every last bit of it amazing. Four times, LOL
