Friday's Fabulous Favorites

Some of you have emailed to ask if we have been effected by the explosion of the oil rig in The Gulf of Mexico. We felt it, and I thought it was either this, or a rocket test at NASA, but yes it is effecting us, here's a quick breakdown, before I get on to Friday's Favorites.

This is during daylight still burning so you can see just what's it's like. One of My John's favorite fishing spots, he's there all the time, the big one's hang out by the rigs. None of the 11 workers on the rig at the time of the explosion have been found. We didn't expect them to be. Part of living on the coast, and having men in the water. All of our friends have been accounted for. Please send one up for those who are never coming home.

The oil spill is heading our way, all kinds of emergency boats are doing what they can from letting this happen, but we still don't know. There is a storm brewing that's not helping much. See the peace symbol up there, that's us! I did some fancy work in picnik this morning!

It's looking good for now, but we are very worried about the oil spill reaching our beach. John and I are concerned about the cranes and pelicans especially. Emergency animal rescue are on standby, and monitoring the situation, and John will be out on the water over the weekend should we need to do anything to help.

I just have one little thing to tell you before I get started, My Captain John came to visit me at work today. He brought me lunch, and we had a picnic in the truck.
So while he was here, I showed him this diamond and black diamond ring I have been stalking. He said it was very classy. And, then he bought it for me. Not bad for a Bumpkin, uh? I have drooled over black diamonds for many months now, and I'm super excited to be sporting this one. I swung a deal for after work tonight. (wink wink)!

It's holy hell house cleaning for The Bumpkin this weekend. I have been doing a little too much blogging, and well, my Mamma rolled over in her grave last night, so I must tend to it.
Love ya'll,
Have a great weekend!
The Bumpkin

MCW said...

I hope that oil spill gets under scary. Those poor guys out there on the rig. Hopefully they didn't suffer...

Sole Matters said...

HELLO @ the black diamond! LUCKY!!! I really hope the storm doesnt hit hard. :(

Cheeseboy said...

An oil spill is the perfect way to celebrate Earth week. That seal has the most manly mustache. Pretty darned cute.

The rig explosion breaks my heart. We know some offshoremen, and while they're all accounted for, I can't imagine what the families of the missing are going through.

Salt said...

Happy weekend, lady!
I can't believe I hadn't heard about this explosion until today. I used to have friends that worked on the rigs off the coast of California and I was always kind of afraid of something like this happening to them. I'm glad all your friends are ok, but so sorry for the families that lost loved ones.

On a lighter note...SCORE on that black diamond! I have been obsessed with black diamonds for about a year now. I'm hoping maybe for our first anniversary my hubs will get me one. Yeah I know first anni is supposed to be "paper" but I don't like following rules.

Taj Acosta said...

This oil spill really sucks. I am praying for the animals and fishies!
Wow a diamond ring! What a man! wish my hubby would take me to lunch in his truck. If he had one! Black diamonds are gorg!
And lastly, thanks for the love doll! Yes I need a badge, I'm sure I'll figure it out one of these days! I love those McQueen shoes too! Sexy! Especially with a black diamond ;) Have a great weekend dear. xoxo

Trish said...

What a horrible friend I am, as much as I've been stalking you this week I haven't asked you once about the oil spill. I hope everything gets cleaned up and under control ASAP, what a terrible tragedy. As Jen said, I hope the families of those who are unaccounted for are getting the support they need.

What a lovely Friday post, and WOW GO JOHN!! Way to treat that beautiful woman of yours right! It's beautiful Lisa, I know you'll wear it well! (Does John get to find the Lilly now?)

Love the Bumpkin picture from DJ. I agree, she needs an image of the week slot, there are too many good ones to not hilight! :)

Happy weekend, can't wait to catch up soon. XOXO

Dustjacket Attic said...

That is just awful about the spill.

What a totally gorgeous ring....and THANK YOU for the mention and award you are SO so lovely honey.

Cracked me up as usual and yes JennyMac does have a fantastic blog, and she's a great girl.

Chris said...

You are one lucky Bumpkin, you know that? (Obviously Captain knows he is lucky too!)

The explosion is tragic, especially on the heels of the coal mine explosion. No one should ever have to die because of work.

JennyMac said...

What a wonderful Friday treat for me to see your kind note. Thank you so much! :)

And I have borrowed many a fab image from Dust Jacket..her montages are truly stunning and i have enjoyed her blog for a long time.

So sorry to hear of the terrible incident. Sending positive thoughts.

And finally, that quote is absolutely amazing.
