HERE YA GO DARLIN'................

OK.....this mature lady is really likein' Texas now.  Last night was our last get together with our group.  We had a lovely dinner and dancing to a big swing band.

When my young cowboy waiter served me my meal his comment was "Here ya go darlin".

This mature lady has not had such a sweet thing said in many a moon!!
Made my evening......I'll tell you that!!

Told sweet hubby about the comment when we came home and he said he did not hear it or he would have "defended my honor".  Haaaaaaaa  Haaaaaaaaa!!!

As if that were not enough to make me giggle like a young girl......the handsome young thing told me how much he Loved!!! my boots.  (O:  (O:

Oh.......those Texas boys sure know how to make a woman smile!!!!

Bye now,

And thank you sweet one for coming to visit was an honor to be invited to such an event. I soaked it up and got teary-eyed when we were asked to stand and everyone clapped.
