Thank You! 

My planned hiatus was thrown for a loop by circumstances completely out of left field, and out of my control.     But, in true Southern style, I improvised, adapted, and overcame . . .

I want to say a great-big THANK YOU to my Southern Harley cohort, Grey Biker for being a good friend (and ignoring my psycho-ramblings as best he could -- and not calling the men in the white coats with the funny jackets and really, really long sleeves!).     Thanks, Darlin' for being there when a girl needed a big, hunky shoulder and no judgment lectures!

And, a great-big THANK YOU to my best friend Vic in Pennsylvania who ignored all of the Cingular dropped signals at 80-90 m/p/h, the fact that I didn't stop to take a breath for at least forty-five minutes, and ended every sentence with a profanity (actually the same profanity) -- used like punctuation marks to denote the ends of sentences (since I wasn't really pausing for "effect").     I'm also glad she "suggested" that crashing my tiny, 'lil convertible into all of the semi-tractor-trailers on the Interstate as we were [I was] talking was probably not the most sane decision I would be making that day considering the size differences.

And, a great-big THANK YOU to another best friend Missy in Indiana, who merely called to tell me about a book she was reading that she wanted me to read.     Although I wasn't going to say anything to her, she knows me well enough to hear that "something wasn't right" in my voice.     Although all three were completely different in their reactions, approach and opinions, all three helped me put the situation into a better perspective . . . one that I can control.

And, a honorable mention Thank You to the guy in the red pick-up truck who flirted all the way back down the Interstate when I was on my way back home yesterday afternoon.     Although the answer to that Jeopardy question would be . . . "What is . . . no way in h*ll, Alex?"     DING, DING, DING -- that is the correct answer . . . the guy was still cute for giving it a go at 80 m/p/h.

So, THANK YOU to everyone who helped me get through my Thursday.     Anyone up for Friday duty?     Just kidding!

I'm off to another appointment in Chattanooga today (I couldn't get them both coordinated for yesterday) . . . more Interstate traffic - woooo-hoooo!     But, I think I'll hit the Mall, and the Harley dealership, and Barnes & Noble after my appointment . . . shopping helps me feel better!

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
