The "F" words

This isn't even what you think it will be. Not even close. What I am talking about is Family, Food and a Funeral. Ok, so we went to Picayune, MS to attend my sister-in-law funeral. Is it ok to say it was a nice funeral? Or is that like an oxymoron? Anyway, it was nice. It took us three hours to drive there but on the way there, hubby wanted to listen to his jazz cd so I thought I could make that happen. I had to first eject one of my cd's out of the cd changer for his to go in; but when I went to eject cd#6, the darn thing got stuck and didn't want to come out. So I trying to fidget with it and at the same time, hubby tries to lean over and get it out. I tell him to just focus on driving and I got this. He's yapping about why is it stuck, why won't it come out, has it ever done this before and all I can say is: "SHUT UP AND DRIVE!!!"

So ok we get to MS and everyone is waiting at my husband's niece house for the family car....everyone is not there yet. Why do we have to go through this? Folks know to be there but just dragging and dragging. OMG...get a move on!! gotta love 'em.

After the funeral, we are in line at the fellowship hall. A sista is hungry like crazy. I look at the food and say to my daughter, "Looks like we gonna be going to Burger King." I mean we were like number 15 in line and there was a smidgen of this, and a hocus pocus bowl full of that...and I was hungry for real. Next time we get on the road, somebody please remind me to take a few snacks in my purse. I did get the CD out while everyone was at the grave site. Whew!! Cause I know I wouldn't have heard the end of that.

Lovingly yours,


  1. The 'F' words...can't live with them and we sure can't live without them. Glad you guys made it back safely.

  2. The comment to your husband has me smiling. I wonder if you were at my house tonight. :)
