Robert and Kristen-- Maybe


Is it wrong that when I saw the pics/video of Rob
getting all mad at the 'paps' in the scene from Cosmopolis...
That I had to smile?
He's just not scary.
Even angry Robert is all kinds of cute.
Maybe its just me...
Maybe Robert really is all bad ass when he's pissed off...
But he is just so adorkable and stuff to be all tough.
Maybe its just me.

Do I sense some sarcasm?
Sweet Kristen.
I love how she's smiling at the camera here.
Is she really smiling?
Could it be a sarcastic smile?

Kristen has looked gloriously happy since the
MTV Award show.
Her and Rob were so giddy and sweet that night...
and Kristen hasn't stopped smiling since.
Every time we've seen her.
Why so happy Kristen?
She looks so content...
So satisfied.
So... In love.


So close... yet so far.

I did it again.
I asked.
I received.
Every time I ask for a picture of Tom
I get one.
Of course.... Sienna is always there too
But its kinda cool.
Its always good to see Tom...
Even with all the hair and that hat.
He doesn't look so happy in this picture
He was like following 50 paces behind her
(I conveniently used a picture that she wasn't in)
And Sienna
(Who I don't hate btw... so shut up)
Looked even more unhappy.
Which kinda surprised me because she always seemed
so happy to see cameras taking her picture.
I adore Tom.

Do you think if I asked for a picture 
of Rob and Kristen it would happen too?
I don't want swarms of paparazzi to descend on them...
Maybe a simple fan pic
You know.
Kinda like the one we got from IOW that year.
Remember that?
The little girl who spotted them...
No one believed Kristen was there then either.
Or in Budapest.
Or in London.
Or anywhere Robert is.
Sometimes we don't get pictures until MUCH later.
One simple fan pic...
That's all.

Its been almost 4 weeks since we have seen them together.
I know we have gone through longer periods of time before...
And the same bullshit drama followed them then too
But it doesn't really matter does it?
Rob will be done soon enough with Cosmopolis.
Kristen will be heading to London for SWATH.
And I know some people are hoping against hope
that Robert doesn't follow her there...
But after Cosmo... he might actually have some time off.
And what better place to go than London?
Let's face it.
It's ALL about Kristen.
We all know it.

People can shove costars and directors daughters
at Robert all they want.
But there's nothing beyond work there.
There has never been more than that.
If there was... it would have been all over the place.
All we've seen are a couple of pictures of Caitlyn Croneberg
doing her job on the set of the movie.
And Rob doing his job.

Get the fuck OFF.

Women who have close proximity to Rob
seem to bring out the worst in some people.
They all get hit with the fanatical side of this fandom.
It's scary.
It's embarrassing.
But remember...
No one gets hit harder than Kristen.
Day in 
Day out
For years now.

And yet...
Robert still loves Kristen.
Day in
Day out.
For years now.

Green Sheep. Forever.

This post is brought to you by the letter *H*

H for Happy 4th of July!
I will be scarce
(but hopefully be able to pop in)
for the next few days...
So everyone have a great weekend...
Be happy.
Be safe.

H for Hilarious.
Excuses are already flying
PR is at the ready.


This is nothing.
Wait and see.

Bye for now

Clue for the weekend.



PL said...

Well, my timing was perfect today. Happy 4th of July weekend to everyone who celebrates.

A-1 as in steak sauce? Maybe someone is grilling steak? Will there be a party?


I left you a bit of nostalgia on the last post.

Freddie said...

Hi Rose,

Thanks for the post, as usual. I hope you and your family have a wonderful, peaceful long weekend at your cottage.

dottie – I’m sure it’s tough to “let your boys go” but how great is it that you’ve equipped them so well that they can make this trip themselves. I’m sure they will miss you too.

I hope my fellow Canadians have had a wonderful Canada Day with family and friends. It’s been a great celebration here. If I don’t get back to the board beforehand, I also wanted to wish everyone in the States a great July 4th/Independence Day. Enjoy. To all of our Roselanders abroad, have a wonderful weekend.

To our favourite trio, I hope Rob, Kristen and Tom are all happy and well, whether together or geographically apart.

Safe travels and kind regards to all,


Kay said...

Happy 4th of July weekend Rose and Roseland - I hope you all have a fabulous one!


Groovie said...

Hello everyone!
Happy happy Friday!
I'm still enjoying my vacation, I'm being dragged to a rodeo tonight with my entire family, so that's interesting...and odd...and I really won't fit in there but oh well! Lol!!

Great post! Love smiley happy Kristen, and Rob too! They are both looking really happy lately, good for them..makes me happy too!

Hope Rob, Kristen and all of you have a wonderful, happy, safe weekend! Here in Texas they can shoot off their own fireworks apparently, so my family does that..so that will be something new for us to experience, should be fun!

Lindsey said...

Kristen looks great in that pic, but i agree Rose, seems like she might not be smiling cause shes super excited to see the paps;) Maybe one of them tripped and made her smile!

PL- I A-1 totally made me think of steak sauce too, could Rose be hinting its almost the 4th and people BBQ!lol

Rose and Everyone- have a great, relaxing weekend!

dottie said...

Hey ROSE and Roseland friends!

PL, A-1 Steak Sauce was my first thought as well. I like my steak med-rare if we're having a Roseland BBQ!

FREDDIE, You are very sweet. I'm not sure that my boys will miss me - they will be having too much fun w/all their buds they've been missing since we moved. That's OK. I told them that their dad & I will be "honeymooning" while they are away. The looks I got were priceless! haha

I wonder if Rob took pleasure in punching a pap, even if it was just pretend? Couldn't blame him if he did. ;)

I hope everyone enjoys the week end. To my fellow Americans, have a safe and happy 4th!

Hope said...

Happy 4th of July Everyone!!

Rose...Wishing you and your family have a fun weekend together!

Freddie...Happy Canada Day!
Did you finish all the projects at your parents house?

Dottie...I bet your boys will miss you.

Hope Rob and Kristen will be together and enjoy a wonderful weekend whether in Canada or the States.

Melinda said...

Rose- You are on fire lately! Keep on, keeping on! Have a wonderful weekend with your family. Bet fireworks over the lake are beautiful. :)

Hello everyone! Missed out on the last couple of posts. My manic Monday turned into a manic week! I am so ready for the weekend.

Hope everyone is doing well. If your week was as bad as mine then I hope the weekend is much better.

Happy Canada Day to those who claim Canada as their home.

Happy 4th to my fellow Americans.

Have a safe and fun filled weekend whether you are celebrating a holiday or not!

katy said...

Hi Rose, Great post!

I love that serious and smoldering look of Rob in that frist pic!! I love smiley Kristen!! I hope they will be together and that they can have fun and enjoy a happy and safe weekend!

I wish Tom would shave (it's a sin to cover shuch a cute face)...but also wish him happy weekend!!

Freddie, Happy Canada Day!! :)

Happy 4th of July weekend for all of you who celebrates!

Take care everyone

professor wales said...

Regular lurker, but all this talk about steak/A1 gave me the courage to post. My father-in-law was a restaurantur here in Chicago and this is his steak marinade recipe for all of you to enjoy this holiday weekend. Have a fifth on the on the fourth!

Wales of Michigan Avenue Marinade
3/4 C oil
1-1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C honey
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tsp chopped onion
1 clove garlic

Mix all ingredients together and put in large Ziplock bag. Add steaks. Leave in frig at least 4 hours--overnight is the best. Take steaks out of bag and slap those puppies on the grill. Very yummy indeed!!

Barbara Fenwick said...

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY ROSELANDERS, I hope Rob and Kris have an enjoyable holiday, and I think Rob will follow Kris to London while she is filming...it is his home, his family is there, and most important Kris will be there. I think Kris looks so happy and so beautiful, everything is right in her world. Have a happy weekend everyone. Take care.

PL said...

Professor Wales,

Thanks for coming out of lurkdom and posting the recipe. I was just contemplating a marinade for flank steak and I think I'll try your.

Does anyone out there know how to transfer photos from PC to Ipad? I tried emailing to myself but the quality suffers. Any suggestions?

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

Thanks for another nice post. I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend <3

Freddie- Happy Canada Day!

Dottie- I'm sure your boys will miss you, they might not admit it, but they will :)

Groovie- I've never been to a rodeo either, but it sounds fun. You'll have to tell us how you liked it.

Professor wales- Thanks for sharing the marinade recipe.

Hi PL, Kay, Lindsey, Hope, Katy,
Melinda, Barbara, and anyone I missed.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy July 4th weekend!

Rhonda said...

PL- Sorry, I can't offer any help. I'm technically challenged ;)

sjjw said...

Hi Roseland friends! Well, we finally made it to the beach...my barely two year old car BROKE DOWN (overheated) and we arrived at our resort in the TOW TRUCK w/ the car. The driver unloaded the car HERE, w/ us. It was quite hilarious. Security was baffled...I will get the car serviced tomorrow, but the driver was actually brilliant to bring us, and our stuff in the car here tonight! WHEW! I'm now enjoying a Stella and watching the waves. Life is never dull, is it?

Oh, as we waited for the tow truck in an Exxon parking lot, we saw a crack deal go down. Good times.

I hope you are all having a safe, wonderful holiday! I'm a lot better now! Nothing, not even a broken car, will dampen this holiday. Cheers all....


*I*Believe* said...

Happy Fourth of July Everyone!

I hope this post finds you all well and safe. Things are quieting down here....it is the calm before the storm... MIL arrives next week.

Thanks for the post and enjoy your down time...you deserve it!

Birdie said...

It is so strange how people interpret what they see in the media. I was thinking about this when you said it is difficult to imagine a scary Rob.When I see all the negative things written about Kristen and Rob,I wonder are we seeing the same thing as the others? I get the distinct impression that these are two sincere,kind people with a strong value system. What in hell are these other people seeing? I just don't get it.

Welcome Prof. Wales! The marinade sounds great,thank you.

Thanks for the post before you leave for a little R&R, Rose. I hope you enjoy the holiday with your family. I hope Rob and Kristen are able to enjoy the holiday with each other and family.
Whether you celebrate July 4th or not, I hope all you Roselanders have a great weekend! It should be a HOT one!

beaculen said...

Happy 4th everyone! That pic of Rob after he gets glopped with pie is crazy intense. He looks so different, so grown up lol. Can't wait for this movie to come out. I wonder if he'll film the naked art scene. hmmm. something to look forward to lol. Thanks Rose, still loving the green sheep.
@Professor Wales, I am totally going to use your recipe on the 4th sounds yummy. thanks

wania said...

DK, learn to you is fun and good, ever!
kisses friend!

Marjorie1211 said...

Another great post! I hope everyone in Roseland has a wonderful 4th of July. Hi, DK! I saw your shoutout.

wania said...

Hi everyone! Happy 4th of July for you!!

Rose, thanks for good post! Robert is lovely in every way... one Lord ... one English nobleman.
I think... is hard to write about Rob when everything about is nonsense! Is hard read so much bullshit... But don't give up us! I need to read your post, ever!
Is hard too wait news and pics Rob and Kristen...I talk for myself...I love both and want see them...every day! But no paps! Never! Há!
Ok...I wait one simple fan pic too...rsrsrss...
Anyway... Kristen's smile and his quiet way...Robert's smile and his happy and clumsy feet ... yeh! It all makes sense for me and I feel good!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning Roseland...

Professor...I will try the marinade!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

felicity said...

all the best for the 4th of july...may you all have fun on the long weekend....rose enjoy your time off!!

great post like always...those who don't have faith in rob and kristen should leave this fandom immediately!!

DreamerKind said...

Only poking my head in and am now heading to sleepy hollow, and missed you again. Sent you a PM.
Hopefully we'll catch each other like we planned.
You'll hear from me, loud and clear, dear.
Happy Weekend and Celebrations to all in Roseland!


angelica1 said...

Good morning everyone.Hope all of you US ladies have a great weekend!

gwen said...

Happy 4th of July. Hope you have a great weekend ladies and also to R, K and T.

DK- Sorry to missed you today. We're watching Transformers 3 and I'm tired already with this horrible line and we havent inside yet. Happy house hunting/moving out.

olivia said...

Good morning dear Rose and Roselanders,

Have a wonderful weekend away Rose. Hope you are up at the lake enjoying some peace and quiet with your family.

PL, you are so sweet. Yes, I am missing the beautiful state. No trip planned up there for this summer. Headed to Santa Fe soon. Will have to find the Spoon Foods and Zingermans Deli catalogues and order some delicious jams and other treasures. Really do wish I could zip over to the Ann Arbor Arts Festival in July! Loved going to that every year.

IB, wishing you strength, energy, patience and a sense of humor for the coming MIL visit.

Profe Wales, thank you for the marinade. Will try it with chicken.

Oh my sjw! I'm wishing you a most wonderful rest of your vacay. You certainly have maintained a positive attitude after the car breakdown episode. The added Exxon parking lot entertainment sounded very scary! Thank goodness you arrived safely to the beach.

Hi 30, **waves**! Love the 4th of July decorating that you did for us. So clever.

Have a lovely Saturday everyone. Hope that Rob and Kristen have great happiness and lots of privacy this extended weekend.
Hugs for y'all, and for Smitty, Gruff, and Syd!
Life is good. Be a believer!

Annie said...

Good morning Roseland!

Have a wonderful July 4th everyone!

To Kenzz, Olivia, PL, Rhonda.........Thank you for your kind comments from a few days ago. It was many years ago but the memory will always, always be there.
PL....... Nothing at all trite in what you said. :)

I might be a bit late with this but you can transfer pics from PC to I-pad using I-Tunes. Just connect the I-pad to the PC using the cable that came with the I-Pad, choose the
photos you want to transfer and sync.

To everyone travelling...... Travel safely.

To Freddie.....I'm late in wishing you a happy Canada Day. I hope it was fun. Enjoy your time with your mom.

*IB*...... I hope all is well.

DK, Birdie, Gwen and all the others I am completely positive I've missed.......Take care.

Professor Wales.......Thanks for the marinade. Will definitely use at some point this weekend.

I love how Rob and Kristen continue to do things their way...Fantastic!

I intend to have a very, very lazy 4th of July weekend!
Take very good care all. :)

dottie said...

Hello everyone. Just sitting here enjoying a big ass cup of coffee and smiling at all your comments.

Prof Wales, thanks for sharing the marinade recipe. I look forward to trying it out.

My boys arrived at their destination safe and sound. I got a short "we're here" text to set my mind at ease. Thank goodness for technology, huh? lol

Have a great Saturday. Safe trip wishes to Rose and her fam, as well as any others who may be traveling today.

sjjw said...

Thanks Olivia! We just found out my car won't be ready until Tuesday! (we were supposed to leave Monday) So, we're looking on the "bright side of life" (cue Monty Python singers) and enjoying being stranded at the beach! There are worse things that could happen, right? We're safe, we have a really good story, and we're oceanfront at our favorite beach! I'm choosing to stay positive.

Cheers to you all! I hope you all stay safe and positive this holiday weekend.

I just wanted to say hiii and lol Dreamer I'm at this party and on the way over I was listening to a playlist that I got from U!
It's like a beautiful day here and I'm feeling really good and there's good food and drinks and really nice people so it's cool. My BF lol soo cute he's like watching me like a hawk! He's a little intense :) okay I gotta go but I hope u guys have fun this weekend. Bye!

PL said...


It's too bad you had the car problems and the extra expense, but the best trips are really ones where something unexpected happens. Those are the vacations we remember long after, and the kids especially do.


Thanks for the info on the Ipad. I tried to sync but I kept getting an error saying it was going to delete all my apps. I found out I didn't have a box checked to sync apps and that was preventing me from transferring photos. All good now, sorry for boring everyone with this lol.

justme@31 said...

Once again a great post!

For all of you who celebrates 4th of July, have fun:)
And to all have a great weekend!

Rhonda said...

Hi Roseland!

IB- I wish you lots of luck next week :)

Emilia- Have fun at the party!

Sj- I'm really sorry that happened with the car, but it's good you're looking on the bright side of things :)

30- Great job with the July 4th graphics!

I hope everyone had/is having a great Saturday...Lots of love :)

Rhonda omg! I am lol too many blue moons! I gotta go for real now cause I gotta they're playing this song I love and I wanna dance! Dreamer if u get a chance play it here it's tonight and Neyo is on it! Have fun Rhonda!

beaculen said...

I know all you Roselanders love recipes. I have to share this link with you for a flag cake, I was going to make the jello cake with strawberries and blueberries but a friend sent me this. Check it out, I can't wait to try it.

Wildhart007 said...

Hi! Roselanders!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and safe travels!

Just got home from the U2 concert in Nashville. Best concert ever! Really was amazing!

Love the pics in this post!


DreamerKind said...

Lucky you to see U2! Bet it was great. Just sent you a PM.


Wildhart007 said...

Hi! DK!

They're headed to Chicago next! Good to be here at the same time. Been awhile.

You doing okay?

DreamerKind said...

Spending a lovely evening eating Chicago red hots and drinking white wine. So far, so good.

Hoping that everyone is enjoying this delightful weekend/holiday, too.
If I do run into you and Sienna, I'll also shout out your favorite song (it's that special one) so you'll know it's me, instead of some impostor, lol. Besides, my hair is darker right now, and although my avi is me, I am looking like someone else for now. I'd wear one of my fab hats but anyone can do that, too, so your favorite song, it must be.
Just saw a pic of Kristen on a horse practicing riding, for SWATH I'd bet or just having fun. Sure hope that horse doesn't take a nip out of her lovely limbs. You all know my story about luck with horses, so I'll not repeat myself.
What is the title of that song? I am confused, which is not surprising.
Didn't watch wrestling or go to that Fest today. Went through my stuff to get ready to pack and gave up early for the hot dog/wine fest, here at home. See, the circle is unbroken.
How about some "Maybe" songs, troops, to go along with Rose's post? Yes, I will.


DreamerKind said...

Nice to be here at the same time, too. Should check out U2 and see how much the ticks are or if any are available.

I am good, the same as usual, only more so of being myself, the one you know only too well. Thanks for asking. And you?

Wildhart007 said...

I've been working every Saturday for the last 2 months till today. In a money crunch due to unexpected appliances deciding to quit working properly and my mom's medicine went up $200 in the last few months.

Also,been reading the Game of Thrones books from the HBO series and have a small garden of tomatoes, peppers and beans that keep me busy.

Still read the blog and comments everyday. Love everyone's comraderie and stories.

DreamerKind said...

For Wildhart007:

Beautiful Day


The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground
But there's no room, no space to rent in this town

You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care,
The traffic is stuck and you're not moving anywhere.

You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day,
the sky falls And you feel like
it's a beautiful day,
Dont let it get away

Youre on the road but youve got no destination
Youre in the mud, in the maze of her imagination

You love this town even if that doesnt ring true
Youve been all over and its been all over you

It's a beautiful day,
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day,

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me love, I know Im not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
A beautiful day

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you dont have you dont need it now
What you dont know you can feel it somehow

What you dont have you dont need it now
You dont need it now

Thank you/TheCNasto

Wildhart007 said...

We must be on the same wave length. I darkened my hair a tad about a month ago. Put alot more brown in it.

What's a Chicago Red Hot?

DreamerKind said...

So, real life and happy gardening keep you busy, alive.

Fresh veggies, cannot be beat, can they?

You're a good daughter, and natural woman.

Plus hardworker! You are all that matters, Linda. Happy to know you, in this little bit of life, we share.

DreamerKind said...

A hot dog that we have renamed, to a red hot, cause we are like that here.

DreamerKind said...

And I had two Jumbo red hots with tomatoes, Vadalia onions, and lots of mustard (French's only) on a poppyseed bun that had been steamed over the red hot water in the pot.
Now I have taken digestive enzymes and a purgative (herbal detox) to rid myself of all of the fats/chemicals/additives/fuckola in them, which justifies it all, in the first place.
That's my lonely, pre, pre-4th of July celebrating, all alone.

Sad Sackm DK....boo hoo, not really. Ha, ha, yes, really.

DreamerKind said...

Vidalia, not the other way I wrote it.

Wildhart007 said...

Thank you DK, really happy to have met you also, in this wild world (not sure Im all that), just trying to survive and keep occupied.

Sonic has a Chicago dog right now that I really like. (no ketchup, it's mustard, peppers, tomatoes, relish and a dill pickle) yum, yum!

DreamerKind said...

Maybe I'm Amazed

Paul McCartney/Wings:

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time
Maybe I'm afraid of the way I love you

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time
And hung me on a line
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I'm a man and maybe I'm a lonely man
Who's in the middle of something
That he doesn't really understand

Maybe I'm a man and maybe you're the only woman
Who could ever help me
Baby won't you help me understand

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you're with me all the time
Maybe I'm afraid of the way I leave you

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you help me sing my song
You right me when I'm wrong
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Thank you/Deloreanfan1981

DreamerKind said...

No ketchup is verboten, not allowed, going to get you thrown out. No, no ketchup on our red hots, sweets. Ketchup is fine on french fries.
You are eating them just right, and we'd approve of you.

Wildhart007 said...

Sorry you are lonely DK, you never know what tomorrow will bring. You may meet someone special. Wave your wand on yourself. (it seems to work well on the rest of us here)

Oh, and the Sonic dog has a poppy seed bun also.lol

DreamerKind said...

Maybe This Time

Liza Minelli (1972 Cabaret movie):

Maybe this time, I'll be lucky
Maybe this time, he'll stay

Maybe this time
For the first time
Love won't hurry away

He will hold me fast
I'll be home at last
Not a loser anymore
Like the last time
And the time before

Everybody loves a winner
So nobody loved me;
'Lady Peaceful,' 'Lady Happy,'
That's what I long to be

All the odds are in my favor
Something's bound to begin
It's got to happen, happen sometime
Maybe this time I'll win

Something's bound to begin
It's got to happen, happen sometime
Maybe this time
Maybe this time I'll win

Thank you/ainfean1

DreamerKind said...

Oh, you're sweet but I don't want to meet anyone out here, it wouldn't be fair for I don't like to lead people on. I'll be moving on down the road, Linda, but I am loved, that's the reality.

The wand is very handy, that's true. I use it freely.

DreamerKind said...

Your marinade recipe reminds me of the olden days, as it is a typical Chicago style that I love. Thanks so much.

Wildhart007 said...

ugh, my puter locked up and had to restart. I'm gonna call it a night, since I'm fading now. Take care DK.


DreamerKind said...

You, too. Happy dreams.


Wildhart007 said...

DK, I sent you a quick msg

gwen said...

DK- Hey you still up?

DreamerKind said...

I'm here. Got lost on YouTube listening to songs I can't find the lyrics for, so I could post them. Takes me days sometimes, to find lyrics. Quite the noble quest.

Hello, lovely.

gwen said...

DK- sorry if im slow posting. Im watching football today and the teams playing. My throat hurt from screaming my heart out. How are you dear girl?

DreamerKind said...

Don't worry about slow posting, for I am doing the same. Was reading old R/K quotes, that's how dull my mind is tonight. But sometimes, they inspire me, ahhh.

You love football and I'm not surprised you screamed so long and hard that your voice is gone!

Are you working today? What happened on the plane ride from Hell?

gwen said...

DK- How's the house hunting/moving out?

No im home watching the game. Well, isnt it exciting and near death experience riding in a plane with a storm signal and have the ride of your life LOL.

DreamerKind said...

New Soul

Yael Naim:

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit but how to give and take

But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la

See I'm a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit but what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la

This is a happy end
Cause you don't understand
Everything you have done
Why's everything so wrong

This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I'll take you far away

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit but how to give and take

But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

New soul... (la, la, la, la,...)
In this very strange world...
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes...

Thank you/11monkeymaniak11

DreamerKind said...

Like the inchworm, the looking, packing, moving out bits, move bit by bit, inch by inch, until there, wherever that is.

Yes, I think that ride would be very scary and lots of praying would be going on, too. Was it going on for hours or just a portion of the flight?

DreamerKind said...

Brighter Than Sunshine


I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didnt believe in destiny
I look up you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine

I never saw it happening
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn't have the strength to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a mystery
But give me your hand and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine

Suddenly you're mine
I got a feeling in my soul

Thank you/Aqualung

The idea to post the last two songs, although they are probably familiar to most, came from listening to them on the fab website called Musings On Other Queens. You are always an inspiration KJ, in all ways.

Recipes snagged from Robsten Angels, where I also hang loose:

Oneheart's Favorite Chicken Pot Pie
Makes (1) 9-inch pie

3 celery stalks
3 medium carrots, peeled
1 large yellow onion
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 cups cooked chicken (I use a deli rotisserie chicken)pick the meat off into small shredded pieces.
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp. kosher salt or a little more depending on your taste
Black Pepper ever how much you want to put, it depends on your taste
(Pie crust made from scratch or use Bisquick to make a dough)

In a Dutch oven or large kettle melt butter, add onion, carrots, peas, and celery. Saute for a couple of minutes. Add the shredded chicken and stir. Sprinkle the flour evenly over the mixture and stir gently to combine for a couple of minutes.

Pour in the chicken broth stirring constantly, stir in the bouillon cube, the flour will combine with all of this and form a gravy. Pour in the heavy cream and stir. Cook over low heat for about 4 to 5 minutes allowing it to thicken gradually. Season with the thyme, salt and pepper testing for your desired taste. Remove from heat.

Pour into a small casserole dish or deep pie pan. Cover with pie crust and bake for 30 minutes at 425.

Pie Crust recipe
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cups vegetable shortening (solid)
1/2 of egg mixture
2 1/2 Tbsp. cold water
1/2 tsp distilled white vinegar

Combine the flour and salt, add the shortening using a pastry cutter and cut until it resembles pebbles (3 to 4 minutes), lightly beat egg, add in the cold water and vinegar, stir until it is all combined. place in a large plastic bag but do not seal and slightly flatten with a rolling pin. Then put over the casserole dish or deep pie pan that has the chicken mixture in it. Cut small slits in it. Then seal around the edge and bake for 30 minutes at 425 or until pie crust is lightly brown.

I use Bisquick and make my dough, I find it is easier and it still taste great either way.

It's a little extra work to make this but it is a favorite at our house. Enjoy!!!
Thanks, Oneheart!

Bright Star's Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

1 pound shredded, cooked chicken
1 (15 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups water
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt

1 bay leaf
1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn

Thanks, Bright Star of Robsten Angels.

DreamerKind said...

Yes, I bet it was, and still is along with thanks and gratitude.

I'm so happy you made it, for who would tell us you didn't? Hmm, don't like that very much! Can you tell someone to email me, when you are gone too long, for I get worried, you know.

gwen said...

DK- maybe its not my time yet. Dont worry i'll come visit you to inform you if that happens LOL. OK I shouldnt tempt fate.

So where are you moving? Still in Chicago i hope.

DreamerKind said...

Well, I put out an all-points bulletin recently, asking Roselanders where in the world I should move/live. No one responded, so I had to vote myself, to stay in the vicinity of that Toddlin' Town of Chicago.

Now some lovely person could sponsor me somewhere else lovely, and I would vote for their direction. Depends on that lovely person and such things as practical magic-making.

gwen said...

DK- I'll just take a quick shower. Im sweating with all the screaming and cheering. My neighbors think im going crazy over here lol.

See ya in a bit

DreamerKind said...

Sure, take a shower, don't be sweaty for nothing less than things you love to do, right?

But sitting there just being sweaty? Then a shower is a must.

I could join you on this end, but I am rather cool right now, and a hot shower would make more sense but not for me, at this momemto.

Am getting excited to make coffee when I wake up later today, and then just at the right time for cocktails, I'll have a Bloody Mary in celebration of being one day closer to 235 years of independence from our parents.

Monday the 4th, our true holiday, will be something really special, when I figure out, what celebrating that will be.

DreamerKind said...

While you are showering, I took a look at your blogger profile and saw that you and I read the same romance authors! That would be:

Johanna Lindsey, Jude Deveraux & Stephanie Laurens

Top of the line, all of the way, those three authors, going way back for me. Historical and Regency romances are my favorites.

Guess that's why I love the Twilight Saga, for you get historical in the vampire characters backstories, along with a romance based on those old style moral values (Edward). (Sigh)

Today Was A Fairytale

Taylor Swift:

Today was a fairytale
You were the prince
I used to be a damsel in distress
You took me by the hand and you picked me up at six
Today was a fairytale

I wore a dress
You wore a dark grey t-shirt
You told me I was pretty when I looked like a mess
Today was a fairytale
Time slows down whenever you're around

But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there

It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
You've got a smile that takes me to another planet
Every move you make everything you say is right
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
All that I can say is its getting so much clearer
Nothing made sense until the time I saw your face
Today was a fairytale

Time slows down whenever you're around

But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there

It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Time slows down whenever you're around
I can feel my heart
It's beating in my chest
Did you feel it?
I can't put this down

It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way

Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Thank you/SpartanMen

DK- You still here. Sweating is worth it, the team won! Woohoo...

Yep im a sucker for historical romance, with all the knight shining armor and everything lol.

Have a great Sunday since its a holiday. Happy 4th of July to you and the ladies here!

Am yawning and thinking, which is not easy to do. Better head to bed and get up early enough to see the sun again.

Sorry for cutting this short (yeah, long-winded me) but I'll be around again.

Take care.

Congrats on your team winning! Knights-in-shining armor, in a modern day game of jousting like football. Gotta love it.

Happy almost 4th!


Thanks for the recipes. Very timely as I was just discussing pot pies with someone. I like to use puff pastry because it is much easier and I'm lazy.

Professor Wales,

I used the marinade on flank steak yesterday and it was a big success. Marinated for about 5 hours. Thanks again for sharing.


Cake looks really good, but too involved for me I'm afraid. Like I said, I'm lazy.

I think I'm off to the beach today even though it will be full of tourists. See ya.

Good Morning ROSELAND...I have just read all the posts while I wait for my husband to have a "small" procedure in the emergency room. DK...He informed me when I got there last night that he had an infection on his leg....So, we drove back home this morning ...they have sedated him but haven't done the procedure yet...Oh here comes the doctor!!! TTYL:(

I wonder if they miss each other even a fraction as much as we miss seeing THEM together? My guess is that they miss each other more than all of fandom can possibly fathom. I hope they can be together soon...if they're not already! I for one am alternately thrilled that the paps can't catch them when they're with each other...yet I wish I could see one tweet or pic just to assuage my need to know.

dottie said...

Hi Roseland,

I hope everyone is having a nice, relaxing Sunday.

PL, I'm jealous that you are going to the beach.... BUT I'm even more jealous of LINDA for getting to see U2 in concert!

SUPER, Hope your hub's leg is better soon.

Take care!

sjjw said...

Hey PL and everyone! You are sooo right. The weather here in NC is perfect and I'm sipping an adult beverage. What could be better? A wedding just took place on the beach (every time we come here there is a wedding. Popular spot!) so all is good.

Happy almost 4th Roseland!

America The Beautiful

Ray Charles-1972:

Oh beautiful, for heroes proved,
In liberating strife,
Who more than self, our country loved,
And mercy more than life,

America, America, may God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain devined.

(And you know when I was in school,
We used to sing it something like this, listen here:)

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties,
Above the fruited plain,

But now wait a minute, I'm talking about
America, sweet America,
You know, God done shed his grace on thee,
He crowned thy good, yes he did, in a brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea.

You know, I wish I had somebody to help me sing this
(America, America, God shed his grace on thee)
America, I love you America, you see,

My God he done shed his grace on thee,
And you oughta love him for it,
Cause he, he, he, he, crowned thy good,
He told me he would, with brotherhood,
(From sea to shining sea).

Oh Lord, oh Lord, I thank you Lord
(Shining sea).

Lest We Have Forgotten

The Star Spangled Banner
(American National Anthem)

Marvin Gaye-1983:

Can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes & bright stars
Tthrough the perilous fight, oh Lord
Oh, the fight

O'er the ramparts we watched
Were so gallantly, yeah streaming
And the rockets red glare
The bombs bursting in air

Gave proof
Through the night
That our flag
Was still there

Oh, say
Does thy star-spangled banner
Yet wave?

For the land of the free
And the home of the brave
Oh, Lord

Thank you/thoughtbubble

Fourth Of July

Mariah Carey:

Starry eyed
As you put your hand in mine...

It was twilight
On the Fourth of July
Sparkling colors were
Strewn across the sky

And we sat close enough
That we just barely touched
While roman candles
Went soaring above us and baby

Then you put your hand in mine
And we wandered away
I was trembling inside
But I wanted to stay

Pressed against you there and leave the world behind
On that Fourth of July

So starry eyed
On the flowery hillside
Breathless and fervid
Amid the dandelions

As it swept over me
Like the wind through the trees
I felt you sigh with a
Sweet intensity and baby

Then you put your hand in mine
And we floated away
Delicately lay entwined
In an intimate daze

A crescent moon began to shine
And I wanted to stay
Tangled up with you among the fireflies
On that Fourth of July

Thunder clouds
Hung around
So threateningly
Ominously hovering

And the sky
Opened wide

Then you put your hand in mine
And we ran from the rain
Tentatively kissed goodnight
And went our separate ways

And I've never truly felt the way that I
Felt that Fourth of July

Truly I have never felt the same inside
Like that Fourth of July
Truly I could never feel the same as I
Felt that Fourth of July

Thank you/XanderGiffy

You're A Grand Old Flag

James Cagney (Yankee Doodle Dandy movie)-1942:

There's a feeling comes a-stealing,
And it sets my brain a-reeling,
When I listen to the music of a military band.

Every tune like "Yankee Doodle"
Simply sets me off my noodle,
It's that patriotic something that no one can understand.
"Way down south, in the land of cotton,"
Melody untiring,
Its so inspiring.
Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll join the jubilee!
And that's going some, for the Yankees, by gum!
Red, white and blue, I am for you!
Honest, you're a grand old flag!
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
Under Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
Rally 'round the flag,
Let us rally 'round the flag.....

We took the Red from the flame of dawn, the dawn of a new nation.

And the White was the white of the snow at Valley Forge.

The Blue was the blue of the free open sky.

And the stars were the thirteen sisters by the sea who built their home, and called it Liberty.

To symbolize our spirit --
The spirit of freedom --
Right again!

The spirit that gave birth
To American democracy
That's the spirit!

My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of Liberty,
Of thee we sing...

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.

You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.

Thank you/classicvinylbiz

Don't Count Us Out-We Are With You

Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor

Jamestown 400th Anniversary
May 13 2007
1,607 Voice Choir


Give me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me-
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles
From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

We don't have no plastic L.A. friends,
Ain't on the edge of no popular trend.
Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ.

We don't care if you 're a lawyer
Or a Texas oil man
Or some waitress busting ass
In some liquor stand

If you got soul
We hang out with people just like you

My hair's turning white,
My neck's always been red,
My collar's still blue,
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you.

Guess you could say
We've always been,
Red, White, and Blue Oh

Ride our own bikes To Sturgis
We pay our own dues,
Smoking camels, drinking domestic brews

You want to know where I have been
Just look at my hands
Yeah, I've driven by the White House,
Spent some time in jail.
Momma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail.

I ain't been no angel,
But even God, he understands. Yeah
My hair's turning white,
My neck's always been red,
My collar's still blue,

We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you.
Guess you could say
We've always been,
Red, White, and Blue
Yeah that's right!

My Daddy worked hard, and so have I,
Paid our taxes and gave our lives
To serve this great country
So what are they complaining about
Yeah we love our families, we love our kids

You know it is love that makes us all so rich
That's where were at,
If they don't like it they can just
get the hell out

You know... You know...

Oh..oh....Red, White, and Blue

Nothing's Changed, Really, Think About This

United We Stand

Brotherhood Of Man-1970:

There's nowhere in the world
That I would rather be
Than with you my love

And there's nothing in the world
That I would rather see
Than your smile my love

For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever
Be against the wall

We'll be together
Together, you and I

And if the world around you
Falls apart my love
Then I'll still be here

And if the going
Gets too hard along the way
Just you call, I'll hear

For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever
Be against the wall

We'll be together
Together, you and I

Did your husband need an I&D for his infection? I hope he is home and able to take oral AB's.
To all you ladies getting to chill at the beach, I am soooo jealous! I hope all you vacationers are enjoying your trips.
Have a fabulous Fourth Roselanders,Rose, and the Roseland Trio! Have fun watching or making fireworks!

Hi Roseland!

Happy 4th of July!

Beaculen- Thanks for the link to the flag cake, it looks yummy :)

Super- I hope your husband is feeling better.

Birdie- Best of luck to your daughter in the 5K.

DK- Thanks for all the patriotic songs. We have much to celebrate and be thankful for. If you run into Tom during all the celebrations today, don't fangirl too much....well, maybe just a little bit ;)

Have a safe and fun day everyone.. Lots of love :)

angelica1 said...

Happy 4th July to everyone in US.

Super - I hope your husband is OK

Birdie - Yes, I'd be watching too!

30 - Of course, it's BS, the usual crap that comes out every time they're working in separate locations. We still have pregnant/engaged/married/bought various new houses, to get through before the end of the summer.

Hi to all.. Happy 4th of July to those in the US.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend celebrating with your families :)

Freddie said...

Hi all,

Just stopping in to say hello and to wish everyone in the States a wonderful July 4th. I hope you enjoy it with family and friends.

DK - you sounded a bit melancholy the other evening. I hope everything is looking brighter now. Thanks for the call out to Canucks in your earlier comment. Speaking as one, I'm thankful for the friendships formed here with everyone.

Super - I hope your husband's knee is on the mend and that he isn't in any discomfort.

30 - nice to see you drop in. Great job with the artwork.

IB - take a deep breath. Good luck with your MIL's visit.

sjjw - enjoy your extra day of vacation at the beach. Sounds absolutely terrible. Haha.

Hope and Annie - thanks for the good wishes for my visit with my parents. I'm home now, but had a great time seeing them. I hope you both have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Linda - I hope you are well despite your crazy work schedule. I'm glad you enjoyed a well earned break at the U2 concert.

To Rose and all the other regulars (Birdie, PL, Angelica, Liza, dottie, Groovie, Kenzz, Rhonda, Olivia, Kay, Katy, Melinda, Fio, Robert, Barbara F, Gwen, Bren, MySoCalledLife, Sydney, beaculen, wania, Tigerlily, Smitty, Syd, Gruff, Suebee, jentoo, Manjen) and everyone else in Roseland that I may have missed (newbie or absent friend), all the best.

Hope EVERYONE is well and enjoying their long weekend!

DK...thanks for setting the stage with all the patriotic music as we recognize our men and women in uniform today. You're the best!

Freddie...Welcome home...glad you arrived safely and had fun with your mom and dad.

Super...how is your hubby today? Better?

Rose...hope you are enjoying your mini break away from it all. Miss you.

Olivia...we are having fireworks here...how about you? You mentioned the ban, but we saw some last night and will again tonight.

Hi Angelica, Rhonda, Birdie, 30, dottie, Tigerlily and everyone I may miss today.

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

It feels like I haven't had a good visit w/my Roseland buds in a while. Maybe we can all be here at the same time soon for a little chat and mischief?

I hope you all have have a great Monday, whether you celebrate the holiday or not.

Annie said...

Good morning everybody! :)

Wow, that website must be desperate to post anything from Famous magazine as truth.
Wasn't that the same magazine that said Rob was pregnant?

That website and others, along with some fools on Twitter and Tumblir really need to read what both Rob and Kristen have said about their feelings on relationships, cheating and commitment. It would save them from the embarrassment of posting rag mags as truth and idiot comments and meltdowns on places like Twitter!

Annie said...

Happy July 4th! :)

Enjoy it whatever you do! :)

The gastronomic battle of the hot dog eating contest begins in a bit at Coney Island. Unbelievable!

Macy's fireworks later tonight! :)

Better weather today. It rained most of yesterday here.

Annie said...

@Professor Wales....The marinade was brilliant.
I used it for both chicken and steak with mouth-watering results.
Thank you for sharing! :)

I was out soy sauce, so I substituted 2 TBSP worcestershire sauce and 1 TBSP water for the soy sauce amount.

olivia said...

Happy 4th of July to Rose and all Roselanders who celebrate this day!

Rose, hope your vacay is going well and that the weather is holding up in your part of the woods.

No use looking at the weather forecast in this area......pretty much 100 each day with just a miniscule chance of a shower. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

Linda, so glad you got to attend that fabulous U2 concert! You certainly deserved a great night out after all the overtime you've been working. Have you been enjoying The Game of Thrones? Do you recommend it? I am still working through The Fall of Giants ( am about a third of the way through it) and am loving it. It is historical fiction and so far has been dealing with the beginning of WWI and how it is affecting the lives of a huge cast of characters.

Super, hope your husband is on the mend and stays healthy. Take care, it is always hard worrying about your loved ones. Will he attend the last shuttle launch? Give that beautiful grandchild a big from all of us at Roseland.

DK, thank you for the wonderful, patriotic concert last night. I feel bad that I am not a night owl.....would love to stay up to chat with you but I tend to stay on a "school schedule" all the time, even in the summer. Up early and to bed fairly early. Sorry! I do hope that the moving goes well. Packing is my least favorite thing to do. It takes me forever to decide what to toss and what to keep. Wishing you a wonderful new place to live and an easy move with lots of help! I think Syd should volunteer, or at least bring the pizza and beer for the rest breaks.

By the way, can't imagine both you and Linda with darker hair. Both of you are so fair in your pics.

Hi Hope, **waves** for you up in the big D.
There will be a big laser show tonight at the GB Sr. Museum along with fun and games for the kids and a concert by the local symphony orchestra. Always a big event in this town. I think the fires to the south of us near Plantersville (home of the Tx. Renaissance Festival) and to the west along I 45, have helped people to respect the burn bans in the various surrounding counties. Am glad that y'all have not had it so bad and have gotten to enjoy the real fireworks for this 4th!

Freddie, you are so fortunate to be able to make these visits to see your folks. Good to see you are back home safe and sound.

Dottie, kept meaning to tell you that I am glad your boys are traveling together and having a great, safe and enjoyable road trip. It is hard being home and worrying about them but sounds like they are doing well. These are the kinds of adventures they will enjoy reflecting back on as they grow older. I also echo the "Thank goodness for technology!" It is so wonderful to get a quick " All is AOK" message to help you sleep well at night.

sjjw, have a wonderful last day at the beach. May you have a safe and uneventful drive home to home, sweet home.

Groovie, I have never been to a rodeo. They always seem so scary to me. All I can think of is everyone needing some sort of urgent chiropractic care after participating in many of the events. Whereabouts in Tx. have you been visiting?

Have a lovely Monday everyone. Have to work just 4 hours this early afternoon, then off to enjoy the evening.
Hugs for y'all. Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd too!
Life is good. Be a believer.

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July to All!

Annie...I really want a hot dog today! I am fixing Hamburgers for lunch but I saw an earlier post about a Sonic Hot Dog, so I might head over there and pick up a few for later!

Hubby had a bad day yesterday and yes Birdie to your question. Thank you ALL for your concern..Hopefully he will be much better as the week progresses because he is heading down to Florida to see the last space shuttle flight dead or alive!

I have just finished watching a hand load of videos on Robsessed...not realizing that some of them obviously contained more leaked footage..I am so sorry because I know that is upsetting for the actors...I really could not enjoy it and stopped the video when I realized... LOVED Rob with the stuff all over his face from Cosmopolis footage! He looks good no matter what! hahaha

DK..the songs are great! Thanks!

olivia said...


....give that beautiful grandchild a big " HUG " from all of us!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi OLIVIA...Thank you so much. I love
American history. I will have to check out those books...wonder if they are available on my Kindle? I was watching the History channel earlier..a great show on how different states got their boundaries...fascinating! My favorite books are by David McCullough..Mornings on Horseback (about the early life of Theodore Roossevelt), John Adams, 1776, plus I like books on the Civil War..

SJJW..I meant to say that you have successfully turned lemons into lemonade with the car misadventures/vacy at the beach! Good for You!

ANGELICA..Good Morning to you and LJ!!! I loved the marinade also!

Hi to anyone I may have missed...FREDDIE,RHONDA,MARJORIE, FELICITY, 30,DOTTIE,HOPE,TIGER.PL...Have a great day!

Just popping back in before I have to get ready for BBQ & fireworks.

OLIVIA, You write such thoughtful posts. When I see you've posted I always know it will be something encouraging. Thanks for that.

SUPER, I hope your hubby's leg is on the mend now & he isn't in too much pain.

FREDDIE, Glad you are home. Time to unpack now!

SJJW, Enjoy the last day at the beach. What a sacrifice! lol

sjjw said...

Hi Rhonda, Super, Dottie, DK, PL, Oliva and all who have wished me well on this crazy weekend! It has turned out well. It's never a bad thing to have an extra day at the beach! Hubby's Blackberry even took on a little water, but it dried out and is once again working! All is well. Happy happy 4th to you all. We are about to go out in a bit and do some fireworks, of the legal kind, on the beach. I hope everyone has a happy, safe 4th!


sjjw said...

Thanks Freddie! Missed you in the last post. Happy 4th!

Sweet Roselanders! Happy 4th & 5th, wherever you may be..
You have been refreshed by the sweet smell of the northwoods and fresh waters, I hope.
Happy Birthday, Girl!
You are so kind to think of me, whether I am melancholy or upbeat. I appreciate that. Overall, I am everything good.
I'm not lovin' this darker hair, so let's wait and see, a while yet, for any pics.
Yikes! My holiday weekend has been quiet and I watched two films. Waiting for Forever which was tops, and Tom so true in his portrayal.
Then, I watched No Strings Attached, and LMFAO, and found it true to life (someone's).
2 Wins, in one 24 hour day. Am I blue? No way.
Thinking of you, this day and what you have had to go through.
Now, I confess to be drinking champagne right now, as I said I would.
Not Dom P only Mumm's but by golly, it is delish. And ribeye steak, fried on the stove, with garlic and sea salt seasonings. Magnifico.

Born down in a dead man's town

I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said "Son, don't you understand"

I had a brother at Khe Sahn
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

Historia De Un Amor
(Story Of A Love)

Hrysoula Stefanaki:


You're not longer by my side
My heart, my love
In my soul I only have loneliness

And if I cannot see you anymore
Why did God make me love you
To make me suffer more

You were always the reason for my existence
To adore you was a religion for me

And in your kisses I used to find
The heat that gave me
The love and the passion

This is the story of a love
Like there is no other
That made me understand
All the good and all the evil

That gave light to my life
Turning it off again

Oh, what a dark life
Without your love
I will not, cannot live

This is a story of a love

Thank you/TheGreekRetro

As Long As He Needs Me

As long as he needs me
I know where I must be
I'll cling on steadfastly
As longs as he needs me

As long as life is long
I'll love him, right or wrong
And somehow I'll be strong
As long as he needs me

If you are lonely then you will know
When someone needs you
You love them so

I won't betray his trust
Though people say I must
I've got to stay true just
As longs as he needs me

If you are lonely then you will know
When someone needs you you love them so

I won't betray his trust
Though people say I must
I've got to stay true just
As longs as he needs me

Hi Kenzz!! You probably passed my brother several times! lol He lives in Maine, and went to the Cape w/ his family this weekend. (His in-laws have a house there!) I hope you had a wonderful time. Cape Cod is so beautiful....

Hope you are having the best day!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELINDA!!! I hope it's a great day filled w/lots of love and laughter!

KENZZ, So glad to see you! Wishing you safe travels to those beautiful destinations.

DK, A new hair color can take some getting used to. I hope you end up liking it, but if not... at least you can change it back. :)

Waves and hugs to all the regs!

*I*Believe* said...

Good Morning Everyone! Hope you all had a safe 4th!

Saw the pictures of Kristen at the airport...all smiley and happy!!! So where's the positive press?? They always want to jump all over the scowls and unhappy looks, of which there hasn't been any, but they are so quick to overlook how happy and beautiful she is looking. Kristen has also been very gracious while they have been hounding her and following her all over LA. Just proves how they spin things and what an awful bunch they are!!

OK, I dodged a bullet, MIL's trip is cancelled...her husband has a bad knee infection and can't travel. I swear I wasn't hoping for the cancellation bc of injury...now I have a guilty conscience (well a little).

Super~How is your hubby doing?...knee infections must be going around!

Melinda~Happy Birthday!

Annie~I see the city is going to be a scorcher...stay cool!

Kenzz~Do you have a date for the Cape?
I forget!

DK~When we have time, I have a doozy of a hair color story to tell you!

Be well and have a great day!

angelica1 said...

IB - I don't know if congratulations are appropriate but I avoid my MIL like the plague, she's a challenge :)

Rhonda said...

IB- Don't feel bad, you're off the hook for now, and the injury wasn't your fault :)

PL said...


Don't underestimate the power of Roseland in your corner. It's like voodoo.

Seriously, glad you're getting a reprieve.

dottie said...

IB - Don't feel bad. If my MIL was coming to visit I would feel the same way. We've never lived near the in laws & it has been a blessing!

Cleaning house today. Wheeee!!!!

*I*Believe* said...

You guys are great!! Thanks for making me feel better :)

Dear Rose,
I am "new in town"- meaning Ive just fallen in love with Rob as you did it over 3 years ago! I accidently being bored watched Twilight on some movie page (didnt hear about it before, mother of two little girls, married, working from Poland - Hi- everyone). I read the books immedately! Sweat, addoration, love ect. I found your blog searching the internet for even a glimpse of his face!

So I want to thank you for expressing my fealings to Rob and Kristen! Every world of yours is what I wanna say, every sigh is my sigh! I have a fealing we could became the greatest friends - well at least we would have a great subject to talk about... fu...ing great! call me when you decide to visit Poland you can always sleep in my guest room!

I have no idea how to follow you on twitter cause I just made an account! maybe soon Im gonna join you there!

As I read your blog Im in 2008 comparing our feelings I think now you are still intoxicated but its a well formed relationship! I wish you could write every day cause I miss so much every world of yours

luuuuv Rob - whats happening with me

kisses from Poland
sorry for my English but I dont use it much in my live now...


p.s. guys have you got any Idea what can I read (already done Wide awake... amazing) just to rest from Twilight just for a little bit. Thanks in advance

Melinda said...

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! You all are wonderful people! Glad for this little place in cyberspace.

Dottie- I'm with you on having a chat fest soon. Name the time and place! :)

IB- I guess you were expecting a not so welcome visit from the MIL. Injury aside glad you don't have to deal with her this time. :)

So for those that have been following the Casey Anthony case, what are your thoughts??

This has been going on in my backyard pretty much. I'm stunned and very saddened because this little girl is no longer alive and no one will pay for it!

I will say that if I were her or any of her family I would be moving ASAP. Too many people know where they live.

justme@31 said...

Hi everyone:)
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!
@ Melinda: The Casey Anthony case is somewhat in all headlines in the Us but I´m from portugal and the only thing I really saw was that she has been absolved... But she killed her daughter, right? Sorry for asking

Freddie said...

Hi all,

I hope everyone has recovered from the holiday celebrations (or just regular weekend celebrations).

Melinda - I hope I didn't miss you.

Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday, dear Melinda.
Happy birthday to you. (Imagine your favourite singer singing this to you).

Stay well all.

Freddie said...

Oh and IB - glad you dodged the bullet (so to speak). My mother's counsel was that once married you should move as far away from both families as possible. LOL.

Kenzz - safe travels.

Rhonda said...

Hi Freddie- Did you have a nice vacation?

Melinda- I haven't really followed the trial but I must admit I was shocked by the verdict.

Melinda said...


Thanks! Also glad you made it home safe and sound. Sounds like you had a good time! How did Tomas do traveling? Did he come along?


Yes she killed her child. I firmly believe it as do many others. Sadly she didn't really want to be a mother any longer. There were too many things to make this a cut and dried case (very much like OJ Simpson). I hope this makes sense.

Hope said...

Melinda...have you had a fun birthday??
As far as Casey Anthony...I cannot believe she was found not guilty after ONLY 11 hours of deliberation!!!

How does a mom NOT KNOW where her daughter is for a month and not report it??!!(rolls eyes)
I could not let 5 minutes pass if my daughter was missing especially at 2 years of age. UNBELIEVABLE!!

Hi Freddie and Rhonda

Freddie said...

Hi Rhonda and Melinda - I hope you are both well and enjoyed your long weekend.

I had a good time with my family, thanks for asking. My mom and I always manage to take on some projects. This time it was new carpets, rearranging furniture, some paint touch-ups. We didn't get to the re-tiling as originally planned. We managed to get some shopping in, which is fun with my mom, because she never talks me out of buying anything.

Yes, Tomas made the trip with me. He's actually getting to be a good traveler. He didn't howl for the usual 30 - 40 minutes. He would however, occasionally yell out, startling the h*ll out of me - which is never a good thing when driving. But the trips there and back were uneventful, in a good way.

How did you both celebrate the 4th?

Freddie said...

Hi Hope - I hope you are well. Did you have a good July 4th weekend?

angelica1 said...

Freddie - My dogs have to be sedated for car journeys. One howls all the way and the other tries to chase the other traffic through the windscreen

Hope said...

Freddie....Yes we had so much fun!! Went to a few cookouts with friends and fireworks too. Laid out by our pool too because it is bloody hot here!
Read your comments about your trip and Tomas. lol...We have a bichon and she can barely ride in the car to the groomer without having the shakes.

Freddie said...

Oh Angelica - for the driver that must be more than a bit of problem, but that would make an incredibly funny home video.

Freddie said...

Oops - typo - "more than a bit of a problem".

Hope - so glad you had a good time. Olivia mentioned 100 degree heat. Has it been that hot for you too? If so, the pool sounds like the only place to be. Animals are so funny. Some love the car. Others hate it. I guess hugs are needed to calm the shakes.

Melinda said...


She didn't report it because she knew where she was the whole time! Just pisses me off. Here is something that not all media outlets have talked about.

When Casey was in jail some remains were found in a park (the same park that she said took Caylee to etc). When she was told about it, she had NO emotion whatsoever.

Now fast forward to when she was told that Caylee's remains were found right down the road from her parent's house. She reacted with nervousness, she had a panic attack, etc.

Strange reaction if you aren't guilty of anything. I'm not sure why the state didn't bring that in as evidence. Maybe they weren't allowed.

All in all- it just sad because this child was born to a woman who didn't want to mother her. And now her life is gone.

And I am having a great day. Thanks for asking!


Shopping is always fun! Sometimes it's nice to be spoiled or spoil yourself every once in a while.

I spent the 4th with friends and fam. We had a bbque, played games, and then went to watch fireworks. Went to see "The Hangover 2" afterwards. Fun day.

Is Canada Day the same thing as our 4th? Forgive me for not knowing what it is. Also how is the country surviving the royal visit??

Freddie said...

Melinda - yes, Canada Day is essentially our July 4th. It's our birthday celebration and people spend it with friends and families, enjoy BBQ's, go to cottages and watch fireworks. Some go and celebrate in the nations capital where they put on a big show. I think it's pretty much what you guys do.

This year it was even a bigger show, since William and Kate attended. They have been the talk of the town. They have been fabulous, winning over even the most skeptical anti-monarchists. They have been very gratious, have taken an incredible amount of time to talk to people and really listen to them. They spent time with kids in a homeless shelter and lots of time with war vets/elderly. Everyone has Wills & Kate fever here.

Hope said...

Melinda...Exactly!! She should have been found guilty on one of the lesser charges of manslaughter or child abuse at least.

Freddie...it has been at least 100 every day for a week.
Let me add I have Kate and William fever too. They are a beautiful couple to watch and I love how he talks about her as his WIFE in his speeches. Were they anywhere near you??

Guess I should fix dinner...lol

dottie said...


I am still in shock over that verdict. It will be interesting to hear what the members of the jury have to say about their reasoning. The fact that she didn't report that baby missing for a month is enough for me! Not only that, wasn't she out partying during that time?

On a much happier note, I hope your bday has been fun.

Hey to the rest of you fun people!

sjjw said...

Hi Roseland! We made it home safe and sound! Thank you all for your safe travel wishes. As someone said, the power of Roseland is indeed strong!


Freddie said...

Hope - William and Kate were actually in Montreal on Saturday afternoon when I was there, but I didn't make it downtown to see them. They have definitely put a new, young, fresh face on the monarchy. We even saw a little bit of PDA after they competed in a dragon boat race. Very cute. They've captivated the world like another couple I know....

Hi dottie - how's the second honeymoon going? LOL

sjjw - glad you made it home safely.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi SJJW and ALL Roselanders...I just think it is tragic beyond beilief that Casey Anthony was found not guilty due to lack of "overwhelming" evidence....I guess its similar to the OJ Simpson trial in that he got off because "the glove" did not fit"so you must acquit"..remembering his lawyer saying that. But you see that OJ is serving time for "another" crime...so I guess we will see what happens to Casey Anthony. she may be in jail eventually because, like OJ, she may be under the misapprehension that if she can get away with murder she can get away with anything...we shall see....sigh....

Super RN Gas Passer said...

FREDDIE...I am reading a book called William and Kate...I am so impressed with both of them. I think William wants and values a real marriage..he saw the devastation that his mother suffered...he wants better for himself and his wife and future children....Good for him! Kate is a lucky woman!

MySoCalledLife said...

Evening everyone! Just popping in to say hello and to wish you all a belated happy 4th. It sounds like everyone had fun - as did I. In fact, I'm still recovering from a full weekend of gut-busting BBQ and sunshine.

To Melinda - Happy birthday to you!

To those traveling on vacation - safe travels and enjoy that downtime.

Freddie - I have to admit that I'm completely charmed by Will & Kate too. I always loved Diana and I think she'd be proud of how Will turned out. You can tell those two fancy each other and it's just so cute to watch.

I agree with all the comments on the Casey Anthony case. I'm frustrated that justice won't be served here. It was her daughter? How do you let someone like that go?! She's clearly a sociopath - the whole thing is disturbing on so many levels.

Super - sorry about your husband. I hope he mends quickly.

IB - Enjoy your MIL-less week and shake any of that guilt. You just got your week back!

DK - you are so lovely. Thanks always for providing the soundtrack to Roseland.

Hi to everyone else I've not mentioned. I've enjoyed all your comments...

dottie said...

FREDDIE, I'm sorry I had to post and run earlier.

About my "honeymoon"... I'll just tell you that we are having a good time in this empty nest. But I'm sure we will be ready for those boys to come home when the time comes... well I know I will be! LOL

wania said...

Rose...I miss you...but I know you are a free time and you are wise and smart girl only waiting and enjoying this time...

DK, enjoy july 4th?

Hugs for all Roseland

DreamerKind said...

Happy new day, All!

I've been running around today and just got home.

The last thing I did while out, was see "The Bridesmaids" and had lots of laughs. What brilliant writing, about female relationships that was, in that movie!

Maybe, I'll be quiet, and rest early, so I can be chipper later today.

Yes, the 4th was good. I am ever awed by young children, and their delight in fireworks. What would we do without such a joyful noise?
Thinking of you, and know that you are having a good time with your family.
What's the buzz? Tell me what's a happenin', when we meet here again.

justme@31 said...

Like OJ Simpson, now I get it! So she killed her child and gets to be free?
Sometimes I can´t understand the "justice"...And this child never had the chance...
Thank you for clearing my doubt.
Hugs to all

Rhonda said...

Good Morning Roseland!

Freddie- Sorry I didn't respond back yesterday. I had to go out for a bit and missed you.

My July 4th was great, thanks for asking. I spent it with lots of family, food, and fireworks. What did you do for Canada Day? I bet it was exciting with William & Kate there during the holiday. Count me among those who find them very charming.

Hope- Wow, you need a cool down soon. Is it always that hot during the Summer?

Sjjw- I'm glad you made it back home safely.

MSCL- Sounds like you had a fun weekend too :)

Have a great day everyone. Lots of love :)

Hope said...

Good Morning All!!!

Hi Rhonda...it sounds like you had a nice 4th!
Yes, it is always hot here in the summer. Unfortunately, the 100+ degree heat started earlier than normal. There is no end in sight according to our weatherman...well, maybe a cool down to 98 on Friday. lol
Hope you have a great day!

Missing Rose.....

olivia said...

A new banner.......just amazing.....beautiful choice!

Thank you Rose!

Hope your holiday was wonderful and relaxing!
