  1. My first thought was also 'what a lot of sugar"!! I'd never be able to stomach that in the morning. But, I have a grandson who is just a year younger than Parker and he'd love that!! Nothing wrong with a little extra sugar on your birthday!! I may copy that idea for when our grandkids have birthdays!! They all love whipped cream (and so does my DH who can be like a little boy when it comes to eating treats)!! I still remember the excitement the morning we got the news of Parker's birthday. I was recuperating from foot surgery and spend the entire day on the computer!! It was so exciting.
  2. That little bit is just quintessential Clay. I LOVE that laugh. Just hearing it brightens my day.
  3. I've listened to most of yesterday's Wake Up With Taylor. This is the first time I haven't enjoyed it--actually have to take a break and finish later. It's not Clay's fault at all--it's Taylor. I'm tired of her monopolizing the conversation and obsessing about her weight. Clay gave such good advice--stop obsessing and don't rely on the scale for a number--numbers don't always represent your ideal weight. He talked about muscle being more dense than fat, etc.. He's smart and sensible. But, she kept right at it anyway--kept obsessing. Now they are talking about country music. He's trying to explain what makes it country and she WILL. NOT. LISTEN!! She just keeps right on talking over him. It's driving me nuts!! Usually I enjoy her, but not today. Sorry for the rant! But, I just wish she'd give him a chance to finish a sentence. I swear he has the patience of a saint.
  4. Welcome back, Merrieeee!! Love the new banner!! Also love that Clay turned down the PR opportunities--have so much respect for him.
  5. I totally agree with you about there being so much misinformation out there!! After following Clay and reading nearly everything ever written about him, I came to realize just how bad it is. And it made me distrust much of what I read about other celebs!! I wonder if Clay had any idea how big this "UndertheDome" interview would become and I wonder how he feels about it. BOLD is going to be very interesting on Friday (assuming he is there and I sure hope he is)!!!
  6. Two of the articles (Daily Mail) and the one from New Zealand have a glaring error! Both articles say that Clay had planned to vote for Trump. Cannot imagine how they are that confused--they must have him confused with his mother. Sloppy reporting for sure!!!
  7. I think we celebrated pretty much the way you did, Leroy!! Did some cleaning and spent a lot of time weeding while DH mowed the lawn and used the string trimmer. Beautiful day with low humidity. I should have gone for a walk!! Big meal was an omelet with ham, peppers, onions and cheese!! It actually was delicious. We had planned to go for ice cream sundaes, but we're just too pooped from the yard work. But, all in all it was a good day!! We taped the Boston and DC fireworks so we can watch tomorrow. I did listen to Clay sing "God Bless the USA" a few times today!! I still remember when he did it--we couldn't get the station to come in so there was a frantic call to my parents to record it!! They loved it also.
  8. I remember having a third grade student with ADHD. We didn't have fidget spinners at that time. He had a small, smooth rock that he would hold in one hand and "fidget" with it. It did help him to focus. At the end of the year he gave me the rock. I collect heart rocks and keep them in a ceramic bowl. But, there among the heart rocks is a small, smooth rock.
  9. Thanks! We are going to Deerfield, MA--it's kind of a mini Williamsburg and we are going to stay at the inn which is on site. I just sent you a message (email) and said I thought it had been therapeutic for him to be on WUWT!! They are great together. She is compassionate and she gets him!!
  10. I caught part of the show this morning--heard most of the letter (missed the first part). I was in tears. Anyone who doesn't realized after hearing a letter like that what a true friend and wonderful person Clay is does not deserve his friendship. Imagine pouring your heart out like that and being rejected. I was broken hearted for him. I paused the show since I had to leave the house before it was over. When I came back I resumed and started listening again. Decided to fast forward through the long commercial--big mistake. I started listening and could tell something was off. It was a different show--Jenny McCarthy, I think. So I had lost the Taylor show and will have to wait until it is up on demand or until some kind soul provides a link. I really want to hear a the whole letter and Kim story again from start to finish since I missed part of it and I want to hear the last hour or so that I missed!! But, right now I have to pack--going on a two day trip with DH for a late anniversary. Hoping the show will be up when we get back!!!
  11. Busy morning for me tomorrow. Granddaughter stayed over and I am teaching her counted cross stitch. She hated to stop and go to bed. Said she wanted to get up really early and do more with me. But, her "early" is probably 8 or later. I will start the show at 7 and then just pause it and listen later. That will be mid afternoon since I am doing a ladies' luncheon at noon. Dropping granddaughter off at her house on the way to the luncheon. I will be dying to hear the show!!! ETA--Merrieeee--love hearing about your trip. Looked like a yummy meal that room service brought you. I've never done room service. Must feel very luxurious. So glad your trip is going well. (Of course anything I don't have to cook is yummy as far as I am concerned!!)
  12. Merrieee, glad your trip is going well!! Send pics if you can. Twilight, I'm hoping he'll still do BOLD all summer and WakeUpWithTaylor.
  13. Yep! Carrie has officially thudded! Someone should direct her towards some clack! Imagine if she heard him sing "Home" or any number of songs. (Maybe she already has paid a visit to you tube--who knows?) Merrieeee--haven't checked the path of the storm, but glad to hear your trip will not be affected. Enjoy!!
  14. Thanks ldyjocelyn! I did get to see it on the replay on Facebook. But, I always appreciate the links you bring. I don't know how those of you who attended even survived. He has never looked better. That strawberry blond hair just suits him and makes him look 10 years younger. Someone said he looked like a young Robert Redford. But, I'd sooner think he looks like a young Clay Aiken!!
