Okay I know I’m supposed to be on hiatus, but I’m taking a one-day hiatus from my hiatus to discuss the buzz around here, coz it’s gonna be a zoo.
A home in my city has been chosen for His Honor Ty Pennington and his crew from Extreme Home Makeover for a re-build. Everyone’s talking — there’s entirely too much about it in the local papers and on local tv news, and I found myself actually getting the “excitement” bug. Who the heck in Beavercreek Ohio needs a new home?
This is a city (town?) (are we part of the Township or are they part of us, gawd that gives me a headache)… of probably around 35,000 to 40,000 people. Not big, but not small either. I’m racking my brains trying to remember all the latest “heartbreak” stories in the local area — hurt kids, hurt parents, houses burned by fires, annoying neighbors (oh no, wait that’s at my house) and I can’t for the life of me think who or in which neighborhood this is happening.
Rumor has it Ty and his crew are staying at the — oh wait — I probably shouldn’t divulge that info. In fact, their crew trucks have been spotted. Wonder where Ty is? Dang I’ll have to hit all the local bars (ouch – but I hear he does like his liquid if you get my drift). I’m thinking he’ll show up downtown at Dayton’s Oregon District maybe at the Dublin Pub or somewhere like that. Although, we have a nice new Pub about a mile from my house — maybe I should camp out there instead. After all, I did promise MidLife_Slices I would stalk him for a picture since she gave me several nice pics of Simon (that handsome hunk from The Mentalist) when he was in her area shooting a pic in which her granddaughter had a part.
I guess today as I go to and return from my physical therapy appointment I should cruise around town looking at potential sites. After all it’s to be announced this afternoon and then Ty will do his famous “wake-up” to the family Friday morning.
Why can’t it be my house? We need a makeover so badly – and hey, c’mon I’ve been injured and it’s hard for me to go up and down stairs — why doesn’t that qualify? Oh yeah, there’s Devoted Spouse and EmmaLou to contend with and nothing is wrong with them…well at least not with Devoted Spouse. EmmaLou, Golden Destroyer Extraordinaire is about to depart for the puppy farm if she doesn’t make a radical change in her potty habits of late. But is a soiled carpet qualification for a make-over? If so, dang EmmaLou get busy girl — I want Ty over here!
Okay, I’m officially back on hiatus now…
