"Traveled down the road and back again, your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant..."

I actually did not know that was a song until tonight, when I heard it on Delilah's show on in the car! I always thought it was just the theme to the Golden Girls, I didn't know it was a real song!


The Golden Girls always makes me thing of sleepovers at my Mom-Mom's house on Saturday nights. When my sister and I were little, we would sleep over at Mom-Mom's on weekends! Every Saturday night, we'd pile into her gigantic, king-sized bed and watch TV until it was time to go to sleep! Golden Girls was always part of our TV repertoire! After TV, it would be time for bed- Mom-Mom on the right side, Marla in the middle, and me banished to as far to the right as I could get because I kicked so badly in my sleep! The next morning, we would talk her into letting us get breakfast from the Burger King around the corner!


Marla and I had to laugh when we heard this song on the radio tonight, because we were driving home from the hospital- my Mom-Mom has a small blockage in her heart, so she will have a cardiac catheterization done tomorrow morning to remove the blockage. Thankfully, it could be alot worse, and the cath, while sounding scary, should be a relatively simple procedure. But, she will need to be anesthetized, and while pretty dang good-looking for a woman her age, is no spring chicken, so this will be a semi-serious thing. This, of course, is a picture of her from our wedding- she would kill me if I used one of the pictures I tried to take of her today for Project 365!

Discomfort aside, Mom-Mom was in very good spirits and was very chatty! Observe the following conversation (don't ask me how we came upon this particular subject, it just happens when you are stuck in an ER room):


Marla:

I might leave Steve (her husband) for David Beckham!

Mom-Mom
Oh, you would not!

Brie
Well, you know what they say about David Beckham....

(giggles from Brie and Marla)

Mom-Mom
What do they say?

Brie and Marla
Uh...well...

Brie
That he has a giant weenie.

Mom-Mom
Now,you girls don't know that.

Marla
Well, his wife says it is!


Mom-Mom
Well, what would you do if you were dating someone and you found out he wasn't well-endowed?



Brie
I don't know? Can he cook?
Anyway, we ran out to get Mom-Mom something good to eat for dinner and some magazines to keep her amused, and at the drugstore we saw this display of socks that proudly declared "Slightly Imperfect!" Thinking of it now, I kind of think that we should all have a badge that loudly proclaims what we all already know! But, in the moment, we just thought it was really, really funny!
Keep Mom-Mom in your prayers tonight! Thanks!!

I STILL laugh at Golden Girls, and when ever my Mom gets on my nerves, I always say "Shady Pines, Ma!" like Dorothy used to! But really was floored when I hear the song on the radio!

Thanks for the prayers, you gorgeous girls!! It means so much!
