Robert Pattinson- The Look of Love (Smitten Smiles 2)

The Look of Love

(Bacharach/David)

The look of love is in your eyes
The look, your smile can't disguise

The look of love, it's saying so much more
Than just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard,
well it takes my breath away
I can hardly wait to hold you, 
feel my arms around you
How long I have waited, 
waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
You've got the look of love, is on your face
A look that time can't erase
Be mine tonight
Let this be just the start of so many nights like this
Let's take a lover's vow and then seal it with a kiss
I can hardly wait to hold you,
feel my arms around you
How long I have waited,
waited just to love you
Now that I have found you, don't ever go, don't ever go
I love you so
I can hardly wait to hold you, feel my arms around you
How long I have waited, waited just to love you
Now that I have found you,
don't ever go, don't ever go

Don't ever go

I think VF was everyone's favorite photoshoot - love the banner.

Dreamerkind,

You're awake early aren't you? Raise your orange juice glass and say "Here's to no drama".
P

Barbara Fenwick said...

Rose, beautiful post as usual, and those lyrics fit our Robsten perfectly. Nobody could look at those pictures and not see the love between them, no matter how they feel about one or the other. The love is there, real love, deep love they have for each other. I really miss them, and I like to think maybe they are together right now, with nobody the wiser. I know it probably isn't true, but I feel better thinking it is possible. I will keep on twirling, waiting patiently for a picture or something of the two of them. I love you Rose, and hope all is well wih you---love all the pics, you really have the best pictures. I don't know Tracy, but hope all is well with her also. I will also keep hoping for some news soon.

beacullen said...

Siiggghhhh! how cute are they? I can't wait to see what they've been up to together. Twirl..thanks Rose.

Melinda said...

Happy sighs all around! I agree the VF photo shoot was the best. Have my twirling shoes ready just tell me when.

I am getting ready to go to my happy place- it's called a caramel frappe from Mickey D's.

I'll pop back on later tonight. Hope by then we may have news about Tracy.

Happy they are happy.

DreamerKind said...

Penny Lane

OJ glass in hand, "No drama!".

Funny how life that moves during the earlier part of a day, does sometimes manage to move me to get up early to do things. What????

Coffee, coffee, please....

SueBee said...

Hi all

*****Just heard from TRACY.*******

She said to tell you that she appreciates the concern, hugs, thoughts, prayers, positive energy and everything.

Unfortunately, Tracy says that the news about her dad is worse than expected and she is trying to process that right now.

That being the case, she doesn't know if she will be on tonight.

To quote her directly, she said "Don't let everyone be all sad panda."





I'll let you know if I hear anything else.

1RoseFan said...

Hi guys,

No word from Tracy yet huh? I was kind of hoping to hear how they did...

I have Syd going but couldn't do it to Gruff. He really did feel bad and was taking it hard. Syd on the other hand believes that most of you have vowed never to return here and that Rose is thinking of shutting down the whole thing. I also said Sue was catatonic and Liza (who is a bit of a soft spot for Syd) was having to take time off of work she was so upset and hysterical. Oh--and Penny was hospitilized with severe stress and upset.

Brownies are made and I'm off soon to do some more domestic chores. I'm channeling my inner Martha Stewart today.

Hang in there Tracy--hoping you are staying strong.

1RoseFan said...

I obviously didn't see Sue's update....

So sorry to hear about the news. Not a great time for jokes so just forget the rest of that.

Tracy--if you do see this I am terribly sorry. Texting with Boris and Syd who send their love and concern also.

SueBee said...

Tracy,

My dear keeper of the tiara, sash, and keys to the shed--if I could travel through this screen and hug you and just sit with you while this is going on , I would be there in a heartbeat.

If at all possible, I'd sweep you off to Atlantis and we'd hang out there comparing music on our iPods and making bets.

Love you sisterfriend

Penny Lane said...

1Rosefan,

I don't think Tracy would want everyone to be sad right now. There is truth in the old adage "laughter is the best medicine".

You know everyone has a soft spot for the fragile Gruff, but its open season on Syd so keep it up.

SueBee said...

@1RoseFan

If I know Tracy, and I do, I think she would probably prefer the jokes and for things to be like normal right now.

She said she doesn't want everyone sad panda.

Even so, I know she is touched by the love everyone is showing.


---Susan

Penny Lane said...

Tracy,

I don't know the full story of your family situation but suffice to say I'm sorry you're going through a difficult situation. I don't know what resolution you are hoping for, but I hope it is attainable for you and your family.

Thoughts and prayers,
Penny

LJ said...

I have also just spoken to Tracy but just wanted to put on here that Tracy you rock my friend....I value your friendship more than you know and I'm here for you any time if you need me.

*MASSIVE HUGS*

SueBee can I come to Atlanta? :-)

Liza

katy said...

SueBee

If you read this, please tell Tracy that I'm really sorry, and tell her to keep being strong and positive...I will keep her and her father in my thought and prayers.

SueBee said...

@1RoseFan

Hope Boris knows I forgive him. Please tell him "Susan says it's all good. Don't feel bad anymore!"

As for syd, keep me updated. LOL

SueBee said...

LJ

Actually, Tracy and I were kidding about going to Atlantis (kingdom under the sea) so we could escape the stress. We were getting creative and by the time we were done it was sounding better and better. LOL

By all means, Liza, you know you are welcome and belong anywhere we are. :o)

SueBee said...

I need to change my avatar. I don't know if I can keep staring at Goofy!

LJ said...

Ha ha I am revealing myself to be a total idiot...sorry! I read that as Atlanta.

Well Atlantis sounds far more exciting anyway...count me in!

Hi 1Rosefan....my hysteria is starting to die down now you will be pleased to hear ;-)

Tracy,

Lots of Hugs and Love sent your way!! I am here if you need me!

Mandie

katy said...

1RoseFan

I feel a bit sorry for Syd...but keep us updated. :)

SueBee said...

Manjen,

I'm here, sweetie! I'm behind this damned Goofy picture! LOL

Are you home from work?


Susan

DreamerKind said...

Sassy Sisters

You can call me Dreamer or DK for short. Even I tire of such a long moniker.

Caroline said...

Hello Roseland!

SueBee and LJ- I'm so glad that you were both able to speak to Tracy today and provide her with a comfort that only true friendship can provide. Thank you for updating us.

Tracy- I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers. You always find a way to bring a little laughter to Roseland. When you're ready please let us try and do the same for you.

Rose- T is also for Together and that always makes me smile. : )

manjen said...

Susan

I am home from work...Sorry I deleted the post, was going to post it again after I posted to Tracy...

I guess you are right, the damned Goofy pic was blocking my view of you...

Were you able to find all of your chronicles and do you need my help?

1RoseFan said...

Omgosh--the "fragile Gruff" is possibly worse than Syd and I put together. He is the worst about playing jokes and saying ridiculous things just to get a reaction. He will go into a restaurant and pretend to speak in this STUPID french accent. Fragile Gruff is FINE--Sue seriously he's fine. Syd might be a bit worried but probably doesn't really believe anyone is catatonic over the whole thing. I did exaggerate what he had posted saying that he had basically assaulted Liza and propositioned her. (Sorry Liza--but I get the feeling you can handle it -lol).

Sorry, I wish I had more jokes to pull on them at the moment to keep everyone entertained but that's all I got.

SueBee said...

I didn't have the chance to work on the blog any due to a much needed nap.

I would appreciate any help I could get.

I'm jumping out from behind the Goofy pic for just a little while.

See if this even lasts the night before I run and hide! LOL

Karen said...

Beautiful words, beautiful pictures, beautiful couple! You have brightened my day, Rose. I can't wait for them to be together again, smiling and happy.

SueBee said...

@1RoseFan

Now that's funny! I bet he doesn't even remember what he said to her.

Am I recovering from my pretend breakdown yet? LOL

manjen said...

SueBee

NO REASON TO RUN AND HIDE!! You look FABULOUS, my friend!!

SueBee said...

Manjen

Thanks my bestest buddy.

Yes, but is that me or am I an overweight 50 year old guy sitting in his parents' basement?

Hmmmmmm?

Pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain!!!

DreamerKind said...

I'm marveling, marveling, at you witty ones.

More coffee and a Krispy Creme, please.

Leigh said...

Tracy

If you need anything I'm here. I know there is not much I can do from here but anything in my power...just let me know. Just know that I'm thinking of you :)

((((HUGS))))

LJ said...

1Rosefan ha ha don't worry.....
I can deffo handle it :-)

I have a feeling he would know I wouldn't complain though even if that were true...lol!

Love to Syd *blushes*

Liza

Kami said...

I agree with Manjen, SueBee you do look wonderful..and Tracy is right about the headband!

Tracy, I'm so sorry, sending you lots of hugs. Everyone here thinks the world of you and we're all here if you need a place to vent, cry or just need support.

1RoseFan said...

SueBee-

You are beautiful--wow--creative, amazing, talented AND a knock-out too.

I'm awed....and a bit intimidated. You guys all are so amazing.

manjen said...

1RoseFan

We all feel that you are amazing as well!!

Leigh said...

Suebee

What a hottie ;) I see you are winning the war I'm fighting!

And the Wizard of Oz is my Daughters favorite movie. So much so that it was the theme for her 5th B-day party. Talk about hard to find...

Leigh said...

manjen

Did you see my post about the tickets? If you want either pair they are yours ;) Or both if you want to make it a long weekend. Just let me know.

Toye said...

Hello Roseland

Tracy I am sorry about your news I will be praying for you and your family.

Rose great post. Love the new banner.

katy said...

SueBee,
you are beautiful...don't need to hide

and 1RoseFan

You don't need to be awed...as you are also very talented and amazing

manjen said...

Leigh

I did see the post..I have to talk to my husband..give me the dates again..sorry I forgot :(

SueBee said...

@1RoseFan

Thanks!

I'll pay you for that in chocolate chip cookies!

Did you bring those brownies? Yum!

And for the record YOU are the one who is fabulously amazing. Don't even know if "fabulously" is a word but it fits!

Wildhart007 said...

Suebee finally off work. I can help you later tonite with the diaries.

1RoseFan said...

Liza--I texted that to him--I said "Liza sends her love" and I got back "She's still talking to me?"

Awww, even I feel kinda bad about it ...

okay, wait, the dude put a live snake in our bed, I don't feel bad at all.

I wrote back--well I think she is just trying to be nice because she thinks you are some sort of addict or something. LOL--sorry but he really is asking for it. I will clear it up with him eventually so he knows its coming from me not you.

LJ said...

Yay SueBee did you post the sassy dress pic? (I can't see pics on here for some reason).

I've seen them on fb anyhoo, you look stunning my friend.

:-)

Leigh said...

manjen

October 15 is Bon Jovi and October 17 is Brad Paisley. Both are at the Gulf Shores Public Beach. It's not a biggie :) Just let me know when you figure it out.

manjen said...

Leigh

Thank you so much..I will get back to you on that.

SueBee said...

Liza

Yes I went sassy. I'm wearing my sparkly headband that does in fact match my necklace like Tracy said.

LJ said...

Ha ha 1Rosefan I bloody love you! that is good going. Got to stand up for my girls so I'm behind you all the way!

Just as long as you tell him I still ❤ him big time eventually.

;-D

1RoseFan said...

Yea, okay, you guys are sweet but its all an illusion. Ask Rose...she knows what a mess I am.

Sue-you have me totally jonesing for some cookies. There's this bakery called Leda's that is pretty far but I might have to go--that sounds so good and I refuse to eat the brownies as they are addictive. Not that the cookies aren't. Okay, maybe I'm just starving-lol>

DreamerKind said...

Ladies of Roseland

"We belong to a mutual admiration society...". So happy to be included!

No, don't worry, I won't post the lyrics and song-unless you insist, lol.

SueBee said...

@1RoseFan

I'll send the cookie recipe. It's my favorite and works better than withholding!

I have a theory that chocolate tends to make everything better!!!!

--Susan

manjen said...

We are ALL a mess. That is what makes life interesting.

;-)

SueBee said...

@manjen

Amen, sistefriend. Anyone who isn't a mess is either lying or well medicated.

Orrrr eating chocolate!

manjen said...

SueBee

Too true..I myself am eating chocolate, while well medicated!

LJ said...

I agree Manjen....us ladies are all a beautiful mess, which is why we have each others back.

I am such a laid back person but if you mess with my friends it's a different story!

DreamerKind said...

manjen

ITA with you about messes.

A dear friend posted this on her FB that other day and it's so apt:

(@IMDB Moonstruck 1987)

"Ronny Cammareri: Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess.

We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us!

We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and *die*. The storybooks are *bullshit*. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and *get* in my bed!"

Right?

1RoseFan said...

Sue--I would love the recipe for the cookies.

1RoseFan said...

Dreamer--I LOVE THAT! I might like get that tattooed on my forhead I love it so fucking much.

rolange said...

Sigh.

What a great post to come home to after a long day at work.

Thanks for this great pick-me-up, Rose!

1RoseFan said...

I needed a new favorite quote because Tony Danza took mine today so this might be it..thanks-

Okay, i'll quit talking so much. Kinda on the manic side of things right now...bye.

Leigh said...

Wildhart

I just saw where you posted on the other thread about the lobsters!! LOL!!

The question is...did you have your bottle of wine in one hand with your bucket and bait net on the other?? Because for some reason...that's the way to do it :0

Leigh said...

1RoseFan

Why were you watching Tony Danza?? If you don't mind my asking...

DreamerKind said...

1RoseFan

I aim to please (smiling from ear to ear) but sometimes miss the target. What do you know, it was a bullseye this time, thanks.

Kami said...

Leigh...thanks for asking the question I didn't have the nerve to

Leigh said...

LOL Kami...maybe that's why she's on the manic side of things right now...Tony Danza would do that to anybody!!

Kami said...

Yes...yes he would Leigh

LJ said...

Who the heck is Tony Danza? lol

SueBee said...

Kami said...

LOL Liza, did you ever see the American version of Who's the Boss?

or Taxi?

Leigh said...

SueBee

I know this may sound crazy but do you have natural gas or electric? I always have to adjust my cook time according to that. Thanks!

LJ said...

No I've never heard of either of them.

Just reminds me of an Elton John song....'hold me closer Tony Danzaaaa'

He he :-)

Kami said...

Ok...I feel like I'm sharing your brain today Leigh I was about to ask the same question..I wonder if the laughing gas at the dentist office made me psychic...

Kami said...

Liza LOL!!!!

SueBee said...

@Leigh

Laughing because I'm immature

I have natural gas.

:o)

DreamerKind said...

LJ

Liza,

Ho, ho, ho, so funny, that!

LJ said...

SueBee I'm so making those cookies but what is Crisco? (god I sound thick tonight!)

Elaine said...

Rose-What a great post, and the pictures...I'm fucking dead! Starting with the banner...wao!!!

Hey guys-

Just made it home from the most fucking long day evah! Let me start by saying that I added a half hour to my commute for being and idiot. I was reading Rose's post that did not even hear my station being called...by the time I noticed the fucking doors were closing on my face. The next station was 15 mins away...sooo, I had to get off and pay another fare to head back. Good news is I was able to read the post and most of the comments.

Oh! I forgot to mention that I was able to reach an agreement where Em will stay with me until Sunday, when we are driving her to CT.
After speaking to 2 fucking circus clowns and 1 fucking trained monkey (I think the monkeys are far more intelligent than this bitch) We were able to reach an agreement.

T-Been thinking of you, hope to hear from you soon.
I love you!

E.

Leigh said...

Kami

You better hope not...sharing my brain that is...LOL I barely have enough smarts for me :0 I had to hire a tutor to help my daughter with her 6th grade math! Of course, that may have something to do with the fact that we want to choke each other at any given moment...something to think about!

DreamerKind said...

Man, we don't need anything else here.

We've got laughing gas, cookies, brownies, songs, dances, wit, fun, chronicles and so on.

Beautiful, beautiful blog.

SueBee said...

Liza

Crisco is vegetable shortening or lard.

It has to be butter flavored for it to taste right.

You call these biscuits right?

:o)

DreamerKind said...

Elaine

Happy news about Em!

Leigh said...

SueBee

I'm laughing with you because I'm immature enough to get it ;) Some things just don't look right in print!

Leigh said...

Elaine

That's awesome news about Em! I'm so happy for the two of you to get to spend a few extra days together. I hope you both enjoy them :D

LJ said...

Ok cool, just googled it and I daren't say what it brought up but I was presuming it wasn't that! ha ha...

I'd call these cookies I think. Biscuits are usually smaller...like the kind of thing you dunk in a cup of tea, or maybe thats just me :-)

Elaine, fantastic news about Em...so pleased for you and her.

Elaine said...

Dreamer-

Thanks!

Leigh-

Thank you...yeah I'm thrilled that a get a few more days with her. A very god friend of mine is getting married this saturday and I was hoping to take her with us. I'm so happy that now she gets to go, interact with other people, meet some of my friends and have a good time.

E.

dowlingnana said...

Love, love, love, just loving the pics of Rob and Kristen. I have always adored the way he looks at her and can tell she feels the same about him. thanx for all beautiful pics Rose.
@Tracy: God be with you and yours. donna

Liza, for you, sweets!

Thanks Dreamerkind I love it!

My name is pronounced Leeza but I love it all the same.

**hugs**

DreamerKind said...

dowlingnana
Donna

Yes, ITA about the Prettys.

How's it going?

DreamerKind said...

Liza

You're so welcome!

Damned American pronunciation messes it up. Well, don't count me out yet, I'll find a Leeza, ha, ha, one day.

1RoseFan said...

Liza--I think you got your answer about Tony Danza--he was on NBC today and he stole my favorite quote--its all Tony Danzaish now and not the same but it was this...its not really a quote but a story. This will sound unusually corny coming from me but it kinda reminds me of Rose...and I'm the starfish obviously....

The Starfish

A well known author and poet was working and vacationing on the southern coast of Spain. One early morning, he was walking along the beach - the sun was rising, the rain had ended, the rainbows were magnificent, the sea was calm. While enjoying the beauty around him, he glanced down the beach and saw a lone figure dancing about. Fascinated by this person celebrating the new day, he moved closer. As he drew nearer, he realized that the person was not dancing, but in one graceful motion was picking up objects from the beach and tossing them into the sea. He approached the young man and saw the objects were starfish. "Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water?" "If the starfish stay on the beach, when the tide goes out and the sun rises higher, they will die," replied the young man as he continued tossing them out to sea. "That's ridiculous! There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. You can't really believe that what you are doing can possibly make a difference!" The young man picked up another starfish, and tossing it into the waves, said, "It makes a difference to this one."

SUE--thank you for the recipe--I'll try it soon and I have gas-lol!

E, the hero of Roseland, seriously, I am THRILLED to hear you get more time with her. That is so awesome although I think your monkeys and clowns sound like the lawyers who caused hell with me earlier in the week. By the way, we got reassured that nobody is reading this board or chasing us so its all good.

Elaine said...

1Rosefan-

You know what babe, for the first time in my life I feel like a hero. The smile on Ems face when I gave her the news is priceless. To think that I put that smile on her face made me feel pretty fucking great.
Oh! and it's wonderful to know that we're not being stalked by fucking clowns and monkeys...that would just be wrong.
I see you were baking again today, brownies are a hit ha?

1RoseFan said...

E--love it--you should be proud. That Starfish story fits you two so well!

Yea, just getting some things done. Brownies were a total hit but I have some friends coming in that didn't get any so I made more. They are sooo good.

Enjoy your time--I wish she never had to leave you.

LJ said...

1Rosefan I love that story, its just gorgeous...and I'm pretty sure it sounds better when you tell it that this Tony Danza guy.

I hope you know that I would be throwing those starfish back in the sea too.

*big hugs*

DreamerKind said...

Newsflash
Roselandians celebrate winning a round with the monkeys, clowns, gorillas i.e. lawyers for Freedom of Speech rights!

"First Amendment to the United States Constitution:
Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak without censorship or limitation, or both.

The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.

In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on "hate speech".

The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as "the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression".[1][2]

Furthermore freedom of speech is recognized in European, inter-American and African regional human rights law." (Wikipedia)

Elaine said...

1Rosefan-

The starfish story is beautiful. I'm printing it out and putting it up in my office. I love it!
I know, I wish she could stay here forever, everything is so damn difficult, but we'll see how things progress.

Enjoy your friends, I'm sure they'll be enjoying your brownies :)

Elaine said...

Dreamer-

I love it...you fucking rock!

E.

DreamerKind said...

1RoseFan

Definitely sharing "The Starfish" with my FB family & friends.

Kami said...

Elaine, Congratualtions on getting through to the circus clowns and trained monkey so that Em can stay with you a few more days. Like I said before I know how special what you're doing is, and I know it takes a wonderful person to go to bat for someone like you have, so you should feel like a hero. And you're right, the trained monkeys are much smarter than the circus clowns! Kami

1RoseFan said...

Thanks Liza--and I could totally see you throwing them too. It was a while ago somebody I don't know at all sent the story to me because I had done something really small and trivial for her but she appreciated it and let me know. It just struck me how sometimes things that you and I don't think would really matter are worth doing because they matter so much to someone. I have a brother who is like very quiet. I was driving to my parents this summer and I see his car pulled over on the side of the street. These little kids had a lemonade stand and he had pulled over--I didn't think that much of it. Then a few days later and I see him again, at another little kids' lemonade stand. I was like wondering what the dude was doing and why he was stalking little kids --creepy-lol--but he had the sweetest answer. He said he ALWAYS stops and buys lemonade because when we were little he did a stand and not one person came all day. So he told himself he will never drive by--same idea. You just never know how one little thing will make a difference. What I did for the girl was NOT a big deal but she gave me the sweetest letter and it was right after this shit kind of hit the fan in my life and it literally sort of saved me.

Okay, I REALLY need to shut up and chill out. Sorry sorry sorry.

Kami said...

1Rosefan, ok have to admit it, that story made me cry...what a sweet, sweet guy!

LJ said...

1Rosefan, please don't apologise, we all feel that way at some point or other in our lives, whether its in a big or a small way...and it's always the little things, the small gestures, that stay with you.

I guarantee you that the girl will never forget what you did for her and likewise, those children will always remember 'the nice guy who always used to stop and buy our lemonade' and both will probably tell their own children about it at some point.

Never apologise for feeling vulnerable or overwhelmed...its these qualities that make us human. All the more reason why we should surround ourselves with 'good souls' people who in the blink of an eye will always have our back. You can't buy that stuff it's precious.

Lots of love,
Your friend,
Liza

Elaine

Appreciate it...

Am so tired of being called "sheeple".

Learning that another blogger site, Robert Pattinson Life, lost most of its content, after being reported by hatemongers, well, the Devil in me, made me post that!

Mandy the creator of the blog, does not have anyone to defend her rights (like our big kahunas here) and is plain bone-weary she said.

Fight on, Roseland and have the last laugh, in the end.

Elaine said...

1Rosefan-

Don't apologize. It's great that you're able to open up here with us. You're caring and compassionate, those are great qualities to have. So true what you say...You did something for this girl and it didn't seem much to you, but meant so much to her. And by giving you the letter showing her gratitude,she did something for you without even knowing. That's exactly the point, life changing things don't have to be huge deals...it really is the small things that matter.

DreamerKind said...

You inspire!

Kami-

Thank you. It might seem that I'm doing so much for her, but the truth is she is helping me even more.

Kay said...

Tracy,

I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there.

Elaine said...

Dreamer-thank you! you really are very sweet!!

DreamerKind said...

A lull? Just me, peeking in and out?

Any further news on Tracy and her family?

katy said...

1RoseFan

what you told us about the girl and the 'starfish' storie made me think that we can make a difference in the lives of people, whether family, friends, or strangers, by simply offering a smile, a kind word or encouragement at a time when people are feeling sad or discouraged, even if we think what we are doing it's something trivial and small...it can make a difference on someone else life...thank you for sharing this it us.

And, your brother is really the sweetest person by always stoping to buy lemonade from those children.

Hope your having fun with your friends.

Take care

SueBee said...

Okay, cookies are made and ready to go for tomorrow!

Don't ask me how the cookie dough got in my hair!

How is everyone?

:o)

olivia said...

Thank you Rose for the lovely post today.

Dear Tracy, I have you, your dad and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Hooray for you Elaine. Em is very fortunate to have you as her guardian angel. Every day together is precious and meaningful.

Dreamer, you always give us such wonderful comments.

1RoseFan- Have a most wonderful evening with your very special dear friends. You all are loved.

Hugs,
Olivia (TX.)

Rose said...

1RoseFan- I know at this very minute you have so much more on your mind...
but the starfish story... and "It kinda reminds me of Rose"... was so so sweet. You're right... you are my starfish. I'll keep trying <3

katy said...

Elaine

Happy to hear Emilia is going to stay awhile longer with you...I wish it could be forever.

Big hug

HI, Dreamer

I see you still up, hope everything is ok with you...for me is way pass my bed time, so time to go to bed. :)

Take care

DreamerKind said...

katy

Goodnight!

I did sleep, thanks.

Maybe we can chat soon.

DreamerKind said...

Tracy-

I am so sorry to hear that the news you got wasn't what you expected. We are here for you when you are ready for some Roseland love. Hang in there!

SueBee-

The cookies sound delish. I think a visit to the store in the morning is on the agenda. I teach 4 yrs olds music and they would probably love homemade cookies. BTW, you are one hot mama!


Elaine-

so excited that Em gets to stay with you for a few more days. You rock by taking the bull by the horns. She is lucky to have you going to bat for her.


Rose fan-

I love the stories you shared. I am really happy that you feel right at home with us here. You are one of a kind.

I have to say that it amuses me to no end that you are still egging Syd on. It's like watching a tennis match with you two.


To everyone else...I really enjoy the laughter and happy tears that ensue on the blog. You guys make the world a better place.

DreamerKind said...

Someone find me a t-shirt that reads:

Get Off My Wine

Just sayin'.

DreamerKind said...

Or did I mean?

Get Off My Whine

DreamerKind said...

Anyone else got a special phrase for their t-shirt?

We could make this a game, in honor of our Gamemeister Tracy, who makes us laugh.

It will last for hours and hours. Oh, I mean the laughter and game, he, he.

olivia said...

Dreamer, so appreciate it. : )

1RoseFan, forgot to mention how much I loved the starfish story. Also, what a wonderful brother you have. The act of caring enough to encourage the young lemonade stand entrepreneurs shows a very kind and thoughtful soul in him.

There is joy in my heart tonight because I sense great happiness. Love is alive and life is good!

Off to do some reading, planning and mental gymnastics with some papers!
Hugs and love to all of you,
Olivia (TX.)

Wildhart007 said...

Hi Everyone,

You are all so wonderful. You help keep me going. And I love all the stories.

Melinda very well said, feels like a family I've never had.

Dreamer Your songs lift my heart and spirit, thankyou.

Suebee you and Manjen your writing talents are awesome.

1Rosefan your strength and determination are inspiring.

Linda

1RoseFan said...

Hey Dreamer--I got nothing on the shirt ideas.

WHere is everyone??? What do I need to get the two buffoons on here to liven it up?

I can bring them back in a bit if you like--or at least Syd. I am sure he'll be looking for you guys soon enough.

NO MFK? No 'I never" or maybe its truth or dare tonight? LOL--how would that work on the net.

No sad pandas remember??

Rose said...

It works both ways, Smitty..
Thank You for saving me, too.
Friends to the end :) *HUGS*

And yes, I can try to keep Syd busy for you... I didn't realize you broke your rule (13 days!!) so I will do what I can. Even if I'm not here... I'm sure the lovely ladies who frequent this place will keep him company.

I have about 15 minutes until wheels touch down.
I can only imagine how excited you are! I'm all TWIRLY just thinking about it!

Kami said...

Elaine, I understand what you mean, there were many, many people I met while I was working who changed my life in ways no one could ever imagine and I can never repay them for the things they taught me.

She too is a special and wonderful person and I'm glad you found each other.

Wildhart007 said...

SueBee said...

@1RoseFan

You are absolutely right. Games are in order.

We tried 2 lies one truth and that went to hell in a handbasket so let's try something else.

Or we can do a redo on that one?

Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

SueBee said...

Okay, Okay--I'm taking the EmCee microphone! It's going to be 2 lies 1 truth Do over!

I'll start!

Give me a sec!

SueBee said...

DreamerKind said...

1RoseFan

My mottos is:

If you've broken a rule and it doesn't suit you,

make it whole, and break it in half!

Wildhart007 said...

I thought of someone for MFK. Alex O'Laughlin, I'll keep him like Tracy did that Myers guy.

Melinda said...

RF-

Really happy for you. I hope you realize that there are people who want good things for you both. You both have something really special. It's a rarity so hold on tight.

My editors aren't here (Tracy, Katy, Sue)--Rose should I delete?

Thanks Melinda and Dreamer....you guys are so nice. Have fun tonight!

Tracy--still thinking of you tonight. Maybe now that you know you can get your head around it more--I'm not saying that right of course but what I mean is that the uncertainty and fear is sometimes worse than knowing? Okay--just--I'm thinking of you and your family and sending you lots of strength and hugs.

manjen said...

Vegetarian

Cate said...

I sure hope you are not a triplet, because I don't know if the world could hadle a total package like you x 3 :)

Hey ladies **waves**

1RoseFan said...

I'm with Mel--triplet.

Rose said...

I hate deleting...
But I leave it to your discretion....

1RoseFan said...

Rose you sound like Forest Gump!

Thank you Dreamer,

I appreciate your thinking of me!

1RoseFan said...

I deleted--I don't know who a couple of these people are. I really don't want to have them get here and be like "what the fuck were you thinking"--lol

I can't stop shaking...could this take longer--seriously!!

1RoseFan said...

Thanks Mel...we should get a private way to talk where we wouldn't have to worry about lawyers--much less little girls-lol!

Rose said...

Too much deleting... over nothing.
Nothing said here means anything.

Rose said...

I can make this blog MEMBER ONLY...
I guess that is a thought.

SueBee said...

Okay time for the TRUTH

I really am a triplet. I am the first born of a set of 2 girls and one boy. We are fraternal. :o)

I really did wreck the driver's ed car in high school. A semi truck rear ended us on the freeway.

I am NOT a vegetarian. I like meat! (sounds dirty for some reason!)

Melinda said...

Okay I only deleted one thing. Your right Rose. I should know better. Rose knows everything!!!

manjen said...

*sings*

I got it right
I got it right

:)

SueBee said...

BTW, the lovely manjen wins this round!

You are next!

Elaine said...

Game time!! Hells yeah!!!

1Rosefan-I'm so happy you're happy :)

Rose said...

now it looks like I'm talking to myself.

DreamerKind said...

1RoseFan

"Whole lotta shakin' going on."

1RoseFan said...

I think everything said here means everything--but yea, you are right...we are all just insane people babbling to nobody in particular about nothing of consequence.

I'm kinda in a fearless mood--remember last time I said I was fearless-lol!! Look how THAT turned out.

Elaine said...

Rose-I like the idea of members only...we're like an exclusive club. :)

1RoseFan said...

congrats Manjen and Sue, the fact that you are a triplet kind of scares me...there are 3 of you!!

manjen said...

I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters,

I lived in Texas until I was 12.

I once burned my grandfather's barn down that had $300,000 hidden in it.

Wildhart007 said...

Wow three of you amazing!

Sounds like the truck driver was at fault, hope no one was hurt.

Meat Eater yummy!

Melinda said...

RF are you still around? I was going to tell you something that may be inappropriate but you probably will find it funny still.


Susan- I can't believe you are a triplet!!!

1RoseFan said...

Who's next...Manjen if you win I think that means you go...

DreamerKind said...

My song (yes, so true for me) for tonight:

"Red, Red Wine" Neil Diamond

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ysxw7EON5xc

1RoseFan said...

I'm here Mel but not for long...talk to me my friend.

DreamerKind said...

Triple times the Susan-watch out world-

Rose said...

Yes... everything said here means something... only if you know the meaning of something.
But you can say anything people write means something... even when it doesn't mean anything.

Hahahahahahaha.

Elaine said...

Sue-triplet--whoa..that's really cool.

1RoseFan said...

Dreamer--I thought that was UB40--or Bob Marley??

Wildhart007 said...

Alright Manjen the obvious choice is the barn, but I'm going with the 2nd statement on Texas

Melinda said...

Here's a little sex fact for you:

a man's beard grows faster when he is anticipating sex!!

Thought you might like to know that little tidbit.

SueBee said...

There isn't three of ME lol.

We look nothing alike. We all have very different personalities too. My sister is tall with brown eyes, my brother is also tall with blue eyes, and I am the runt of the litter with Green eyes!

1RoseFan said...

What the hell Rose--are you drinking? Sorry about the Packers. Oh and Syd says it like this Pa--kers. Like Pa not paaa...okay that's really hard to explain but its ridiculous how weird he says it.
