I could feel tears in my eyes before I opened them this morning, so I kept them closed...
It was an early morning in December, my favorite season- so I wondered why I woke up teary eyed-
Although, I did recognize a warm feeling...It had a conflicting ring to it, one you never forget; because you feel great, yet confused about how to identify your emotions.
I wanted to keep my eyes closed and think of the cowboy curtains on my grandmothers drapes, the smell of honeysuckle vines in her yard, her dusty back porch, the clothesline, and the talkative morning birds.

I wonder how many people have said, "What did we do last night?" after the sun comes up the morning? I mean, people who have tied one on the night before.......laughing...Oh, it is the worst feeling, emotionally as well as physically, even if you did have a blast the night before.
Kris Kristofferson articulated it perfectly in the lyrics of one of his greatest songs, "Sunday Morning Coming Down." Because when you wake up after being intoxicated, it's scary to realize that the world twirls just as fast without you-
Hence, I don't think anyone says it better than Kris...
This Tuesday's Question is, What is the worst hangover or drunken episode you've ever experienced?
This is the first Tuesday's Question I've answered in some time, but I thought it was only fair that I answer this one, if I was going to ask you too-
Two things made me think of asking this question today, one was the upcoming holidays, and when an old friend contacted me on Facebook it reminded me of old memories.
It was great to hear from her because we've been close friends for decades, in fact the following story I'm about to tell you took place a decade ago. Well now, you may be wondering why a close friend would have to find me on Facebook.
It's because she remarried and moved to another city, and in that time we lost contact with each other like people sometimes do. So, again, I was delighted to hear from her, as well as a mutual friend of ours, who helped me reach back in time, since she joined us on many of our late night adventures.
However, before I move on...I would like to welcome everyone to Tuesday's Question, and say that I decided to post a lighter question this week, but I didn't want to glamorize alcohol so it took me all morning to find the right graphic.
I was going to post this song as the "song in my head today,'' but the version is so good that I didn't want to change the width on the video, so I decided to post it while I edit my next post entitled, "Who is Everybody?"
I hope you can return to read it, because I...well, I guess I should write it here in case, but I want to thank everyone who answered Tuesday's Question. Your answers are simply amazing, and I'm grateful that 'ya'll" are my readers. I'm a little behind again, which I explain in my upcoming, unedited, three topic post... but, in case it passes you by, please know that I really appreciate your answer.
Have a great week-end! And remember to pour a little sugar on it...
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
