Carrying On....

Well folks, I'm BACK!
Not that I was gone, but just feeling kinda droopy and lowdown...ya know, not my usual perky self. It all started (as these things usually do) with Fracas's dang Friday Food Porn Post 'cuz it made me miss Daddy Papersurfer (yes, I know he's an old git, but damnit - he's MY old git!)....and then...when I saw those cute cows and great big ol' beautiful mountains, I really started missing my Blog-Mistress...and then...well, everything just sorta spiraled downward and outta control from there...until finally (having had enough of my pining at the window) Fracas said, "Get ahold of yourself Olga! It's time to yank up those straps and carry on - like a big bra!"
Which I am.
And so I did.
And that's when I saw THIS most incredible sight!
Not one...not two...but THREE big ol' bodacious mountains!
And I swear I heard The Three Sisters calling out to me:
"Believe in yourself Olga! And carry on - like a big bra!"
OK, OK, I can take a hint...
And so I did.
And that's when I felt like singing!
(CLICK TO HEAR ME SING!)
Be patient, it takes me a while to warm up.
"The hills are aliiiiiiiiiive....with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
that rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies from a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls overstones on its way
To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I've heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I'll sing once mooooooore!"

And so, I discovered (again) that with just a little time,
patience, and the support of my friends
(OK, and maybe some chocolate too)
that I am a BIG BRA and no matter what, I will carry on!
Thank GOD!
And Thank Fracas! And Drowsey! And Speedy for your support!
And YOU too!
xoxoxo

Lord Likely said...

Even one as supportive as yourself sometimes needs support herself, it would seem.

Welcome back, m'dear! And what wondrous peaks, as well!

Daddy Papersurfer said...

What a lot of fuss ..... honestly .... still, all's well that ends well ...... I expect you'll need a holiday soon ......

I feel like running through they mountains singing "THE HILLS ARE ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I will be wearing my trusty lion cloth and cowboy hat .... Mardy my chihuahua will be running along screaming at the top of his lungs, and there will be LOTS of cake and an 18 hole golf course with 460 degree dog legs.
Ohhh Olga, what ever would we do without you??

BTW ... I like Drowseys comment! She makes Speedy smile, just like you.

My birds are singing too .... ah the joy of life.

When I cannot smile, I put duct tape on my cheeck to lip corner, and all is well again. That, and I do yogurt. It's very relaxing. It is good to be well cultured.

Somebody left a pee stain on my sofa .... OLEEK!!!!!!!!!!

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

REPORT REPLY:
I hope you didn't use the same toothbrush for you as Mardy!?!? Lainie ate her toothbrush.
