Battle of the Booze Results


Well Hello Again!

First off, I want to thank everyone for your well wishes. That means quite a bit to me.  I had a pretty good week. My kidnappers (aka my cousin and her family) came and snagged me from my apartment last week. I thought I was only going to be there over the weekend so I left my laptop at home.  

My cousin took the clippers to my head and took my hair down to super short, but not bald. My nurse had advised me not to shave it bald to avoid follicle issues. Then my cousin surprised me with a set of gray and black skull caps so that my head wouldn't burn every time I spent time outdoors.  I cant even express how much that meant to me. 

On Monday, it was decided that I should just spend the entire week and celebrate the holiday with them.  We made a special trip to grab my laptop so that I could keep up with emails and other blogging tasks that are a little more difficult to do on the phone. 

On Wednesday, we went to a farm about 45 minutes from my cousin’s home. They (the farm owners) live on a hill and they have built waterslides on their property. Families from all around come to play at their place. So while the younger ones (23 and younger) slid down the hill, us older folks went inside with the Air Conditioning and chatted and played a game called Chameleon.  Such a fun game! If you haven’t played it yet, you should give it a try. 

On Thursday, the heat wore us out. Around 10:30pm my cousin (who works for the County Emergency Administration) received a text telling her to turn on her radio to listen to some excitement in town. Fireworks caused a brush fire that was threatening homes. It was interesting to listen to the Police Department as they went door to door evacuating homes.  And then to hear them responding to more issues on top of that.  

I finally came home yesterday (Sunday). While I love spending time with my cousins, it’s always nice to come home. 

Okay… let’s talk about the boozy battle!  I’m glad that you all were entertained with the content of this month’s tunes. I know I giggled the whole time I put the battle together.

  1. I'm glad you got to spend time with your cousin. That was super nice of them to abduct from your apartment. I was on the wrong side in your battle this time. Thanks for reporting the outcome. You're in my thoughts and prayers, Mary! xo

  2. Nice of your cousin to whisk you away for a break! I hope all goes well with your treatment. Mary. ♥

    Another decisive victory! Seems to be the trend for all of us this week.

  3. I'm so happy you have this support and love. You deserve the love and care. Enjoy each day, wear your hats and listen to the music...isn't that a Doobie Bros. Song? I will check out your other blog.

  4. I'm so happy to hear about your week! Great battle. Thanks for the bonus song ;-)

    Interesting about not shaving the head to avoid FFF or Future Follicle Phuq-ups. (Are we allowed to use that "P" word here? Sometimes I don't read the fine print prior to posting, and it gets me in trouble. You know - "Trouble"? - my middle name.) I never heard of that 'Follicle Fact' before, but I'll keep it mind. (Got any helpful hints on "how not to lose one's mind"?)

    Your Battle had the closest outcome I've come across so far. Nicely done!

    I've never heard of the game 'Chameleon', but I've got another goot juan for ya: It's called 'Evidence'. Everybody watches a crime drama and has to drink a shot o' hooch every time someone says the word "Evidence". Oh, it's almost criminal how much fun that game is!

    See ya again on the 15th, if not earlier.
