The moon bit me!

Picture 131

When Clay and I went to our daughter’s formal last week, we had a wee bit of fun.  It is impossible for us to act too serious in situations where a moon and satin fabric are involved.  This photo is the most normal of the bunch.  Get this…I’m too embarrassed to post the others, I know!  So rare for me.  Can I also mention that it only took two dances for us to get all sweaty?  So yes, this is a photo of us all hot and sweaty with satin sheets and a sparkly moon.  This blog is now rated R.

Anyway, let’s talk about that moon.  When Clay went to sit down for our little sweaty/satin sheet photo session, he planted his leg squarely on the tip of that moon which must have been made out of titanium.  He calmly mentioned something about thinking he tore his pants, but never mentioned that on the inside he was screaming in pain.  The next morning as he came wandering in our room from his shower I saw the nastiest black bruise the size of a grapefruit on the back of his leg, “OH MY GOSH!  What the heck did you do to your leg?!”  And that’s when he looked back at his leg for the first time and stated, “Oh, yeah…that’s where the moon bit me.  It hurt pretty bad.”

Okay, Okay,  because I love you all so much and because I have no idea how or why this blog was nominated for Best Kept Secret in the 2010 Bloggies…I’ll share just a peek of one more photo…

Yeah…I promise the punch was not spiked, but my heels were.  And one more thing,  if Clay is in pain here, with that face, what do you think he looks like when he’s trying to make a really happy face?  I’m wondering if the school will allow us to come to another dance?

Seriously, thank you all for the sweet comments over the years.  I love hearing from all of you.  I love your opinions and questions and comments and concerns and well wishes and scorns and giggles and praises and finger shakes and sighs and, and, and well….I just love all of it.  You all keep this site going.  Thank you friends.  Thank you for nominating Coal Creek Farm, my little home away from home.  The door is always open for all of you.
