LUV!, I'm gonna start right out with telling those who want to know, what shagging and rooting mean: Of course we all here in the USA know that "rooting"
is what we do at a ballgame etc or when wishing someone well!
As for shaggin'
: There is no dance
more associated with the South than shagging
, and no place more accommodating to shaggers
than the South.
Learning to shag
is learning to be a Southerner.
It is learning to hear the ocean in your head and the music in your step. (It's an enchanting kind of music/dance with a gliding & smooth step) see attach picture...
It is learning to bend your knees, relax your shoulders, and shuffle, slide and spin to "Beach Music"
about wise men and falling in love.
...those from other parts of the World, including my Wendye
Frendye, disagree with those versions and OF COURSE! When she get's here today, I have no doubts that she will give you, "THE REST OF THE STORY!!!!"
BTW: Thank you Wendye girl for your very charitable Jude definition!
And thank you too for Mr Jackman, Oh! My! he sure does wear that towel well!!!!!!!!
, yep, read your whole journal...it was like a good book that you start and then can't put down! I pinched (that's a Wendye word for nabbed)
your fabulous sounding "Spicy Shrimp and Cabbage" recipe too! Tell me, however did you get those jockey hunks
to drop their jeans for us?...LMAO! Thankee for that! know you've been trying to decide whether or not to give up artificial sweeteners? So I brought this l'il tidbit from Dr Atkins for you:
Dr Atkins gives this as one tip to help you with a stall. Stop Consuming Aspartame!
If you're sure you're not eating any hidden carbs, take a closer look at other aspects of your diet. An observation at The Atkins Center has been that when certain people discontinue their use of aspartame, their weight loss resumes. The artificial sweetener is marketed under the brand names of NutraSweet® and Equal®. To eliminate aspartame from your life, give up most diet sodas, especially colas (many of which also contain caffeine). Instead, use sweeteners such as sucralose, marketed as Splenda®, or saccharin, marketed as Sweet'n Low™. Again, you also need to examine the labels of all beverages, particularly sugar-free ones, to make sure that aspartame is not an ingredient.
ONWARD EVERYONE!!! keep on keepin' on and HAPPY LCING!!!
“The power to hold on in spite of everything, the power to endure—this is the winner's quality. Persistence is the ability
to face defeat again and again without giving up—to push on in the face of great difficulty, knowing that victory can be yours! ”
