ummm... yes Uberfan, that's why I said "He's gonna go far in his dreams"...
ps - did you get a copy of pic, on fb - help yourself if I left ya like...
thanks RSMS :)
Yeah Blue, I hear you. I don't agree w/ everything obviously, but sure that's vise...
Thanks Anna M. and... God Bless you too!!! Have a beautiful day!!!
you have to be sure and read the first parts 1-3 or the rest is really scary, but when you read the first too, (my fav part), it shows you how the creator of the entire universe, every thing, took time to bring us to him and basically yes, Jesus saves and how God made way in such great detail... while running the universe... it's so beautiful.
ps - God put into my heart that you were trying to save the tour, keep the sponsors happy, keep volume, keep everyone happy, keep things going and bring in extra things for the fans in the process so everyone was hopefully win win. It will all work out, keep going. You can do it!!!
God always give confirmation, I got that about an hour ago. Remember when load gets to heavy, let go / let God! ;)
I'm going back to my old rule, if you don't have something good to say, don't say anything at all. :)
Hi Bobbie Jean... I know it's been awhile.. I'm sorry... overwhelmed is all... I swear I have that thing called adhd.. or whatever it is.. can't focus for crap sometimes. Hope you Easter was beautiful too... keep smiling
Replied on your page, but not sure how pg msg notifications work, so... as I said there ;) no worries, you did tell me ty & you are too funny! Have a fantabulous day Bex!!!
ps- how's scool?
Yes, saw Chelsea last night - I'm still smilin'!
shorter version - WOW! :)))
- sweet, even if just humoring me, if not sweeter still !!!
ps - I don't watch Chelsea too much. And CMA I won't be watching, just so ya know :)
I quit watching music award shows after watching you host. Tried, they were just so boring in comparison.
LOL LOL LOL :))))))) hahahaa :)))
u r so funny, I don't mean that sarcastically, you really are. So... how much did you pay Chelsea or just a favor??? Yes, I get it, Country people don't have to be uptite and they have the same view as you on guy/guy views. oh & that blake shelton sometimes drinks too much... ur so funny. First little guys, then the first guest, then the next guest then... the last guest.
ps - I'm sorry didn't realize it was only maryjane or marywanna, refer??? peace pipe stuff, ya know what I mean, jelly bean :)
well... r u ready to at least grin??? I went to store saw my gay guy friend and half way through our conversation I'm thinking gay guys are so sweet I donlt agree w/ that other part but they are so sweet... then ... it happened... all I could hear was.... Adam & Steve, Adam & Steve, ADAM & STEVE.... ooooooo... dang. thx a lot.
physically I guess there are some pretty big differences in the dif genders of same sex, but I still don't agree. I know King David had lots of wives, so I can see a little where that may happen, but Mom says the Bible also says follow the laws of your land and ours is one man, one woman. No not recently but a yr or so ago she did.
Folks sometimes have to agree to disagree, that is what we will do. I just don't want you to end up like Elvis, give so much to everyone else and just crash and burn.
ooopsy... ummm settings were off now, to my friends that I said you can go tag yourself on your cruise pics if I missed.... it's fixed. sorry :)
It doesn't matter how many times you fall, it only matters how many times you get back up!!!
ps - SO GET UP!!!!!!!
have to see if good outweighs bad, I've been told. Funny I use to say that, guess I needed a reminder.
Yeah - I got to use the thingy and cast my vote!!!
yes, I havw fought for you too ;)
You rewarded good for evil. evil for good.
none the less... "he who LIVES IN SIN(wallows in, not just fall down from time to time and get back up and at least make effort not to sin rather than go for the record on who can sin the most), shall be a SLAVE to sin and the slave doesn't stay in the house long. he who is SET FREE by the SON, SHALL LIVE AS THE SON & THE SON, STAYS IN THE HOUSE FOREVER." - JESUS.
God is a gentleman and doesn't force heaven on us, but He does give us the choice. The longer you play in the devil's play ground, the further away you and more dangerous it is. Choose wisely, it's a choice that lasts eternity.
now... nuff said.
Jesus, God & The Holy Spirit. <3 :)
Hi Bobbie Jean!!
Glad I got to meet you in person, you little sweet potato, you! Wasn't the cruise just a blast? I love meeting fans that I 'know' here. Hope your aunt will be ok. Yep, those yoopers are strong folk. I can't wait to get back there, but it will probably be Memorial Day now. Anything sooner, and it is either going to be still snow or red mud mess everywhere. I love seeing the eagles, swans, leopard frogs, deer, fox, turkey, ducks up there, and taking my canoe out on the bay in the early morning. Summer can't come soon enough. You take care, Bobbie Jean, and hope to see you again somewhere, someday! God Bless You today and always,
Thank you Val & you also!!!
"til we meet again Val"
ps - Val everytime you describe the UP, you make me want to run there. Yeah, God's country for sure :) Beautiful there! Dad was just talking about the fishing, smelt and etc there. What's those fish that you spear along the stream brooke??? One day my we were all out and my Dad came upon me sitting in my snow suit half off, in the middle of the stream w/ whole string of those I think they were about 14 inches long kinda big, compared to Smelt anyways :) Man, it use to take forever to clean those little Smelt, but they sure were good eating! Beautiful memories.
In regards to Aunt Pug, we are waiting to hear how her Dr. Appointment went. Thanks for thinking of us!
Have a beautiful day!!!
I still haven't figured out the comments section, but what the heck! lol
I grew up a tomboy, so of course, I love the outdoors and the wildness of UP Land.
Were those fish you were talking about suckers? My brother used to spear them in the rivers. I still remember our pond flooding at home in Dryden (lower MI), and the carp getting stuck in these shallow little areas in the spring. We used to catch those overgrown goldfish-looking things for fun with our bare hands, and they were huge! We also had over 3 foot pike get caught in the creek behind our house in the spring. We always try for walleye in Little Bay de Noc--but I swear those UP fish are smarter than the ones down in lower MI. There are lots of them in Saginaw Bay, but we just aren't sure about the cleanliness factor of the water here vs. the UP. If you ever make it back to MI, give me a holler here. We can re-live UP memories :)
Yeah - I think they were suckers. The Pike, I think those are the ones Dad use to get out of Lake Superior, I think. I was about 5 and they were as talk as me. I remember that. My mom had come into the kitchen and my Dad had them all sprawled out over the floor on garbage bags or something but still I can hear my Mom, "Ron, look at my kitchen floor!"...
I will def give ya a hollar when I get there, promise!!! :)))
Thank you for letting me know that you got them ;) The thoughtfulness is appreciated! :)))
ps - God Bless You Big & Bring You a Smile Even Now!!!
aww, Cedar beat me to it...came on to say it was nice to meet you.
Same here, you guys both beat me to it... I'll be making page rounds to all the wonderful peeps I got to meet! I could not believe how many folks I got to catch up w/. I think only two from the site and KR FB groups. I was just blown away, still am from time to time. Be back after the gym and RSMS it was so great to get to meet you. I have some great pics of Woodshop crew on my fb page, feel free to tag!
Was nice to meet you girl!!! :)
You too, Mrs. Cedar - I miss you guys already!!!
Hey left a message on BB's profile but she says in a thread she is leaving for a time. Sent you a friend request on Facebook. Waiting for acceptance. Then will give you my phone number etc!
Hey there :) wahooo, let's "getter done"!!!
I just accepted! Shirlee gets off at 10 her time and 11pm mine, so I will phone her and make sure that she has added you. If she has then all that is needed is for you to phone Sixthman and they will take it from there... YEAH!!!
Shirlee was talking to me about her outfits, or what she is planning for them and I am getting so excited, FINALLY, I am so happy to say!!! You know it's more real now that it's three weeks away. Wow, it's getting closer by the minute!
Talk with you soon Ajay & congrats on your Nursing degree, that is an amazing accomplishment, again CONGRATS!!!
Number 4... aww girl !!! Why not save the bottle and when we see each other on the boat... you and I can both have a sippy sip together. I would way much rather cherish that than anything. Speaking of school... I've been sorta ALREADY putting that on the back burner as I found out that I could actually start now.. b/c this course (algebra) is all done online except for the tests.. which I have to go to the college for. But yea.. c'mon now... lets celebrate together, pretty please
ps - real quick, ya know on the gym via boat, 20 minutes would really be enough just to keep so going back wouldn't be so hard, after the cruise... actual if at all, we will be on vaca ya know. Just had to add that - later gater :)
Hey you - I saw you post on 1BB's KidRock Shirt, and yeah that is cool, her shirt :) but.. I don't think I get notices when peeps post on my page, unless I just overlook, but this happened to Shirlee's too. Anyhow... LADY YOU ARE CRAZY - i GOTTA KEEP MY WORD THERE. WE CAN HAVE A CELEBRATION DRINK ON THE BOAT TOO!!! I really wish I could go early and hand things out to the homeless with you guys... I'll see if I can squeeze it together. I started doing that here, two times so far and the second was cut short. Cost wise, I have to say it is a little more than I thought, but heart wise, i gotta say - the gift of their expression - totally priceless!!! :)))
Number 3... I was so happy today... my husband went and got his father in the city to take him grocery shopping. Poor fella only spend 13 bucks on food items... lollipops, two cans of chicken broth, 4 rolls of toilet paper, and toothpaste. Now because of his cancer.. he really can't eat much... but we are very hopeful because at least he's trying to eat something... before he wasn't able to keep anything down... thus the food tube. But he puts ensure in his food tube now.. and tries to put the broth down the regular way we eat a lil bit at a time. Geno says.. he spent more money on lotto tickets than actual food. But, anyway... I'm just so happy that my husband is trying to be there for him in this tough situation... I hate having to ask him if he called his dad today.. because it's been slow for him to do.. and it's as almost if he brought his dad over to my work just to show me this..lol He wanted me to say hi to him... but I had a customer.. so then I felt bad as I didn't get a chance :(
yeah - that is such good news!!! and I'm sure that Geno's Dad knew - he knows you're a sweet heart :) I am so happy to hear that he is getting ensure and getting a little broth down so he can have something to taste - thank God!!! I started a fast today for a couple of friends dealing with illnesses and 5 friends/families one yours, that have had to deal with what your Dad in Law too :)))
Number two.... that was so sweet of you to turn that around and make it inspiring. Now just as a silly joke.. I go and think.. yea.. they look at me and think.. "aww.. check out the chubby girl trying to make herself healthy..lol But, in a way.. that's probably what ppl are thinking.. and even though I find it silly.. it's still with good thought intentions, right? Well.. the good thing about myself is once I get back to a routine of going to the gym.. I'm okay with going on the machines and what not... but I find it VERY intimidating to see all the big boys 'pick things up to put things down' up front in front of the mirror at the free weights.. and so I never dared to go up there and use the free weights. HOWEVER... I was quite inspired the other day when I saw a woman whose weight was probably around 250lbs.. and much smaller than me.. but she went up there and started doing her thing at the free weights.. and of course.. I had to observe her the whole time while I was nonchalantly reading my magazine on the treadmill... but the big muscle dude seem to disperse away from her so that she could do her thing.. and left her alone until she was done. I just thought that was righteous.. and that maybe after dropping 50lbs.. I could see myself up there doing the same thing and those guys being respectful like that to me as well. Sure made me smile and put me in the right frame of mind for the rest of the week.
Hey Bex - listen I've been heavy, I've been thin and honestly I got asked more often and by more cuter,,, is that a word, is now, cuter guys when I was heavy. Let me tell ya, my gauge is I just want to hit my personal best. It will be closer by boat time, way close than a few yrs ago, but even then for what I will feel best at and be happy will require work even after. I'm so far from perfect - it ain't funny - but hey I'm glad I have legs and arms that work, etc.. you know the saying. And as long as I am happy others can kiss my white American mutt butt if they don't like what they see. I'm in that gym workin' out for me. My Dad says one ya can't ever make everybody happy and two, what is "everybody" doing to make your life any better... so just worry about you. Dad's right - so keep going, I started there too. One day at a time, and besides honestly, I never left the gym feeling worse than when I got there. This one man told me he said that to his wife, from the gym. He was trying to get her to get started. I think she did too, I just remembered she did and he works beside her and makes her smile.. they are cute. I forgot all about that til now. Just follow your heart, your dreams, and keep going. I take that advise too, sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's painful... but in that too I gotta say I never looked back and said, man I wish I would have stopped. So... YEP KEEP GOING!!! :) I know we'll be on vaca on the boat but if ya wanna hit an hour or 30min in the gym, let me know and I'll go with you. PM me what size of you and Geno's shirts are, I owe you guys a waxhaw shirt that I's gonna give ya on last yrs cruise, but I missed the boat. How many peeps can honestly say " I missed, literally missed the boat?" lol... now lol, then boo fricken woo was what I was doin'
Awww... first and most important please forgive me.. I did promise to get back to you about the rooms and I didn't did I :( See.. it's a long story but I was a lil scared that my boss would disapprove of me sending out a few friends and family discount rates... because the ones that I did send out.. I screwed up and sent out actual employee rates instead... which you have to be an employee to use that particular one. So... I had to resend the three that I sent out to Ria, Daisy, and Phyllis... which the boss actually helped me to until I figured out what I was doing wrong. Anyway... what I thought would be horrible turned out to be really good.. and the boss helped me thru and showed me how to do it.. instead of just letting me have the reins..lol Now all three of them are taken care of... they have rooms that they want.. one decided to stay down in South Beach.. but it cost 159 a night.. the places by the airport are going for 49 bucks - 69 bucks. I'm not certain if the one that I'm staying at has rooms avail on that rate... but I do know that the one for 69 does and is only two and half blocks from ours... they are both Comfort Inns. If you need a room.. I can send you the friends and family discount link no problem... can do it tonight up till 11pm or tomorrow I work 2nd too. I'd sure like to see you get one if you need a room somewhere. It's basically just like having an AAA discount rate.. but it's called FFL or a friend of an choice hotel employee rate.. quite a benefit, eh. So, please don't hesistate if you need. Again... I'm so daam sorry for not coming back at you right away... trying to do toooo many things at once... went from my books for next semester on Tuesday.. and trying to workout every other and log what I eat and do... and I completely forgot to get back to you... feeling like a total douche.. please accept me apology :(
no worries girl - I couldn't have gone anyway with the flights unless I can change, but that would be up to me cause it would be last minute, prob stay with a friend or two there if I did. I just wanted to make it a priority in all towns I'm in, even if I just pick up $20 mcdoubles and pass them out, but something. Sometimes I think folks just need some hope, sometimes just til that break through around the next bend like something that Kid Rock can do, a house or what have you, comes a long. Til then all I can do, is what I can at that time, like give a spark to til they get back to life as usual. Sometimes it's the sparks that count til the fire comes. I was thinking if I get to do a mission, calling "Spark to Life". I'd be the spark kind of person, til the Kid Rock kinda person brings the "back to Life" part... :)))
I'm a happy girl today!!! SUCH A HAPPY GIRL!!!
Thank God! :)))))))
Why are you so happy :)
I can't remember, but I must have been really sad before.... to get that excited... haha :)))or... it was really that good. I've gotta think for a minute here :)
Thanks Bobby Jean I appreciate that. I was put together with the lady who needed a little help on here. She was very greatful and it was a total gift. We met her later in Malibu when she came over and partied with us. I don't understand when people who owe don't at least recognize when your low. Any rare I had a stroke of Genius and I think we are going to be better than OK. Light at the end of the tunnel. Tonight it's Mac N Cheese again but tomorrow Steak!
If the steak just happens to take longer than a day, just let me know and I can send those discount cards your way - they helped us :)
That's awesome!!! :)
Um... perhaps I'm reading into it way too much and you are being you :) Why the hell would i cuss you out??? You are too sweet !! If you need to delete mine.. go ahead if you want.. I don't mind. Hope you have a beautiful day too !!
That was all beautiful Becky! I'm at work right now, but I can reply better lata :) with respect to my boss :) Just quickly, I should have went w/ my first instinct as it aligns w/ all you explained. God Bless you for taking the time, to CARE :)))) Love to you and yours til later and just quickly I must say God Bless Kid Rock for the blessing that he is to so many... like you!!! And bless you too, for the inspiration that ik along the way that you gave him and the band! :)))
oh my.. that's so sweet of you. God Bless you for being so sweet and caring yourself there. How incredible is it that Kid Rock gets good vibes and energy off of all of his fans related to his music.. the gift of giving and receiving good messages. I can totally understand not being able to enjoy this here, while you are at work. The job I'm at now has free wifi (hotel) and it was the first time I was able to diddle daddle on the computer while I'm getting paid..lol Last job, not at all... and somehow I miss it so much, to be honest... I've found my pride in hard work and diligence. I'll get there again eventually, just very grateful I still have a place to go and find salvation, as far as a job plus it really works well with college work.. and I'm not getting the constant stress pains in my neck anymore, Hallujah Hey :) Stay sweet, Bobbie Jean.. miss talking to you more.
just back to work this week today. laptop in the shop, so I can only catch up here for now. I try to be as quick as I can. My boss is withhold a sum of funds that he owes me and if he doesn't start paying me... I may be taking back...BY SPENDING MY TIME HERE... :) geeze louise... the gent, boss, needs to get it together and realize, ain't like he can take it to the grave with him. :))) Law mandated, apparently nobody has kept my job for more than six months and for that reason, last gal took legal action. feds involved so... they are addressing him w/ current employees too, that'd be me. I tried to support him, then the little stinka was skipping out on his workers comp, made me pay a dr bill that I incurred at an event that I was filling for somebody else at, cause she just refuses to do them. I was trying to make peace between them, fell on my arc... and hurt my neck. Good news, I just said forget the doc... "God just please heal"... with a week a pop... and I'm all good. thank God :)
Good nes, I have a job for today. House Mort of $17k, settled, secnod mort settled, all other bills after being back to work for 4 month, a bit over, caught up in double pays each month. Bankrupsy att for back up plan, cancelled... now, one final step, to pay off all else including final part of cruise, then mission complete. Dept free w/ only mortgage which is alright, cause even if I was renting, I'd be having to pay that. Then I am free.... wahoooyeeeee! :))) I will have hit my goal and can get on with life :)
Well... gotta go - have a beautiful day!
BTW - ALL THE GOOD THINGS I SAID ARE BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I MEAN I DON'T EVEN MAKE THAT MUCH SO YOU KNOW IT HAD TO BE GOD! THIS FINAL STEP TO MY GOAL FEELS EXCRUCIATING , IT SHOULD BE EASIER, BUT IN SOME WAYS FEELS HARDER THAN MOST OF THAT WHICH I ALREADY OVERCAME, BUT AT LEAST I CAN NOW SEE A BEAM OF LIGHT THROUGH THE FOREST. AT LEAST THAT'S A GOOD THANG, KNOW WHAT I MANE... HAHA. :) OK THAT'S ALL NOW, TIL LATER :)))
Part 3 - but.... as far as the ignoring thing... I do apologize as I never meant to ignore you.. and please forgive my absence. Just know that it's all me... going thru stuff, dealing with things in life.. and I come on here bits at a time to read mostly, and comment here or there. So, please forgive me, Bobbie Jean
Part 2 - I ran outta space..lol
The pattern to this lil wind changed seemed to fall with best regards from God as possible. God could of easily taken them away from us at a split second.. but he has been letting us say the long goodbye, so to speak. Very blessed and grateful for that. At the same time... I've had time to reflect upon the past 14 years of Gene's and my life... which has consisted of working hard... weekend parties, family gatherings with siblings... and spending the rest of our savings on Kid Rock shows... vacations... cruises. While, what feels like years devoted to supporting this band... on our part just pure fun, and love of music... we didn't take a step back and look at where we wanted to go in life. We never saved up for a house of our own.. Gene turns 39 in a couple of weeks... and all of sudden we are turning our heads saying.. "Where the hell did the time go?" Hope it's not a mid life crisis.. but um.. maybe it is..lol. After the very kind thing happened, and we were flew out to Detroit.. something sorta clicked in me to start following my heart and working towards our dreams of home ownership, college and career.. because the time is now for us. I see my parent's health started going downhill in their 60's thinking.. omg.. that's only 20 years away for me. So after the Kid Rock thing.. after the emotion and processing all the thoughts thru my head.. I got on a, "I can move mountains" kick. Well, perhaps not mountains..lol but more of a "I can do anything I put my mind to" thing. One thing I realize I can not do at this time is the CARE group. I'm gonna ask to see if anyone wants to take it over, or I need to shut it down.. I'm just not prepared for it, and went into it prematurely. I can still give... I just can give like that :(
Anyway.. love to know who you had over.. was it D? or Shirlee? I have to say... I'm a bit confused about some of what you wrote and am normally clueless on a daily basis..lol but to the i
No Becky, it wasn't Shirlee, she's been pretty great I must say. The other lady was prior to, at least for a time, but idk things got a bit odd. About six or eight wks ago she came to the house and just kept repeating my name. Over & over & over. I said "what" or Yeah... but nothing. I listened to that voice for hours for a few months duration. I won't ever forget her voice. It was her. Ik she wouldn't have made a special trip just for me, she did say she had a friend move here. I tht. maybe she wanted to clear the air or whatever. I guess she had a change of heart. I took my time at the mailbox, in truck, getting the mail which is when it started. I first answered there, nothing. Just my name, over and over. Then I took my time getting out of the truck. Said again yeah or something. Nothing. Next thing ik, there was a post on here under a dif sign on saying "thx for not making me confront you." Which I didn't. I mean I casually looked around, no peeps walking around, no vehicles, nothing. Had to be at side of the house or something. I wasn't going hunting through bushes and what have you. I figured, here I am, approach or leave, but make up your mind. I just figured she chg'd her mind??? I guess I'd rethink if it were me, probably before I got in the car, but yeah I'd rethink if I were in those shoes. :) Thanks Becky for sharing and caring. Take care of you and I will see ya on the cruise. Shirlee is letting me room w/ her. It's all good in the neighborhood... :) Peace, Lots of Prayers for you and all all of your Loved Ones. Sweet dreams! :)))
ps - I love the updates on the site lately espec pics, I must say :)))
