Just a few rambling thoughts and crafts from a mind that is full of both. I am talented in my mind but regularly run full throttle into the wall of procrastination. I have raised procrastination to an art form. A friend once told me I have a BS in BS and a minor in excuse making. If there is anyway to get out of doing my best, I will do my best to get out of it. Welcome to my saburban life. : ).. Lol.

Cool Aide.. : )..

Since it's been so hot lately, I couldn't think of a more fitting item to post for the first, "Pin the Tail on the Bloggy" Party, sponsored by DebbieDoo's Blogging and Blabbing, and Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage.  It's such a fantastic idea, guaranteed to shake up Pinterest and the internet for sure!
Thanks to the both of you!  Kudos!
It doesn't look like there is much relief in sight, unless you think the 90's are better.  Lol.
I found this delicious libation at a bar called Topsiders, which operates at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.  They call it the, "Ha Ha Tonga Zonga" so that they can gauge when people need to be cut off for the night.  : )..  Why would they have to do that? 
Because this is what is in it:
1 Shot of Malibu Rum, 1 shot of Amaretto,
1 shot of Peach Schnapps, 1 shot of Southern Comfort,
Pineapple Juice and enough Grenadine to make it red.
I have dubbed it, "Cool Aide" for now.
It's a little like Hawaiian Punch with a kick.
Now, to enjoy some delicious, cool refreshment!
I forgot just how tasty this drink was.
: )..

Here is a link to two of the great participants that linked up before me on the
bloggy party!  Check them out!  Great stuff!
