You Can't Please Everyone

Death brings out the best and the worst in people.   I've seen it in action (as I'm sure you have too) all my life.  So when my mom died I was prepared (mentally) for problem siblings and other relatives to cause drama.    I ended up being suprised anyway as the people I expected to cause trouble after her death did not, and the one person I let my guard down with, did.   It's just how it goes.   

Silly me though, I did think after the funeral there wouldn't be anymore drama.  

Silly....silly me.  

With nary a word from anyone in the last seven months, when I told my siblings and family members I was going to carry out my mother's final wishes and scatter her ashes in Nebraska, it didn't go over quite so well with a few of them.   I should add I gave them plenty of notice like almost 4 months...but that didn't matter. 

One message read "I think that should be a family event and youre taking that away from me and everyone else that loved her. I dont think what your doing is fair."  

Excuse me???? I thought that was what I WAS doing!  Keep in mind, the person who wrote the above,is a grown woman with 2 children.

Some people just want an excuse to cause pain.

I bent over backward after my mom died to make everyone happy. I included those who in reality shouldn't have been included.  I made sure everyone left with something to remember her by when they had largely ignored or hurt her over the last two decades.   I also allowed some of those people to take way more things than they should have yet all I heard in the ensuing months was either grumbling or silence.   Don't get me wrong....I'm not upset over the 'things'...after all it's just stuff.  What bothers me is the gall some people had during such a sad time.

My conscience is clear. 

I've notified everyone and given them the same opportunity to come and join in.   That's only fair, and mom would have wanted that.

My solace comes in knowing this is the last time I will have to speak to many of them and I'm fine with that.   I honestly want most of these ties to be cut and I know that sounds sad....but these are not nice people.

I'm reminded of the saying  "You can't please everyone", and truthfully you shouldn't really try.

Hooked On Bravo

I admit I'm hooked on Bravo.   The Real Housewives of Orange County, New Jersey, Tabitha Takes Over, Shahs of Sunset, Million Dollar Listing, Jeff Lewis Designs....I love them all.   (Excluding Millon Dollar Matchmakers Patti Stanger and Tardy For the Party Kim Zolciak...those bitches are dead to me)   My current obsesion is the Bravo promos for this season and they are fun!  Featuring a surreal vibe, over the top acting and a fun song by Will-I-Am & Mylie Cyrus.... Andy Cohen is showing an aweseome chest and abs (I think he's adorable), Heather (RHOOC) is delightful w/the coconut, then there's  Jenni and Jeff and ZOILA!!!!  Who knew Zoila could 'get down'!  All of them are so much fun!!!  Whenever the promo music comes on, I rush to the TV.  No lie.   These promos are definitely like crack to me...or even more potent like chocolate!  I am most definitely a Bravo fan!

Photograph of Zen

Sometimes a picture comes your way across the vast span of the internet that is so wonderful, so moving, so insanely perfect and thrilling you just have to put it up on your desk top and look at it for awhile.  Examine it.  Soak it all in.  Revel in the composition, the colors, the subject and format.   Such a picture deserves an introspective spirit and effort to relish the story of it's inception, it's journey and it's future.  It covers all the senses, touching the mind and the soul at the same time.  Yes it's a rare zen moment frozen in time..... This, is just such a picture.
This masterpiece is an OMG pic from the's oddly insane.  Mohammed Ali, Hulk Hogan, Cyndi Lauper, Liber-freakin-ace and some chick named Wendy Richter.  It's 1980's 'camp' at it's very best in my view.  
According to a friend of mine, It's a promo shot from an early Wrestlemania. Hulk Hogan was champ, Richter was women's champ, Lauper was involved (Capt Lou Albano was dad in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun vid) and may have been managing a wrestler at the time, and Ali and Liberace both performed at the event.
Does it get any better than this???  Lib looks halfway butch w/that pose (fur and diamond rings notwithstanding).
I LOVE it!

Lord, It's Me Again....Geoff

Please excuse the mess as I move back in. 

 It's been over six months since my last post, and I sort of took a little 'vay-cay' from life after my mom passed, but I'm excited to blog again. 

If you're a returning blog buddy, thanks for checking back!   If you're a new potential blog buddy or even a lurker, forgive me if a few links are messed up a bit this first week.   Either way, thank you again for stopping by!
