Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

My lovely daughter

My daughter is going to die and I will be doing the honors!

My Mother's Day weekend started off lovely with my daughter sending me flowers at work and bringing my grandson to visit with me. 

My mother's birthday was Saturday so we travelled two hours to spend the day with her in Texas.  We surprised her with flowers and my grandson who she hasn't seen in quite a while. 

We travelled back and decided to have a mother - daughter night out at a local club.  Her ex co-worker was foot loose and fancy free as well,  so off to the Achafalaya Club in Henderson we go for a night of dancing dancing dancing and fun fun fun. 

Unbeknownst to me, while I was a tapping my feet, my daughter was soliciting dating material for me.  She is my biggest fan and I have to watch her because she thinks EVERYONE should think her mother is as wonderful as she thinks I am.  Well, folks, while I was dancing I could see her talking to what seems like everyone in the bar.  What I didn't know she was doing (as a joke) was programing my number in these guys cell phones.  Can you imagine my surprise, after a night of drinking and dancing and thinking I remembered everything, I get a shitload of phone calls for Mother's Day from every Tom, DICK and Harry at the bar.  Oh! but the lil shit underestimates her mother!  Imagine her surprise when she started getting phone calls from these same men after I let them know HER phone number.  Of course I let her husband know what was going on prior to her receiving calls.

We did have a good time and I met some wonderful people that I'm sure will be some long lasting friendships.  My daughter has a way of bringing out that joy in every being she touches.  The guys were hanging on her like flies on......., and she being the married woman that she is, she lapped it up and graciously turned their attentions to her two single companions.  Bitch!

It sounds to me Y'all ahd a really good time.  I enjoy hearing about the practical jokes and am laughing right along  with you. I thought it was a hoot that you gave those men your daughter's number.  I'm glad you had a chance to go and see your Mom on her birthday.

I don't hear a lot of anger in those words, so MAYBE there was a Tom, Dick, or Harry in the bunch worth a call-back..... I hope it's not a Dick....

Ahhhhh, you are so lucky that your daughter is your biggest fan.  My daughter wouldn't take me out dancing if her life depended on it!  She is definitely NOT my biggest fan! lol

Glad you had fun, sis!   The flowers are beautiful!

Methinks the lady doth protest too much!

I know you were just eating it up....ha ha ha.  Hopefully you'll find one prince among the froggies and tadpoles.

Hey your mom has the same birthday as my mom and my daughter!  Maybe you and I are related (ok, not, my mom is in FL, not Texas).
