Editress: Ginger Strivelli From Paula's Desk; Well Ginger has finally kicked a sore spot on my ass so I guess I will make the Ladies Night Out report now. You'd think she'd feel some sympathy for the poor crippled girl (slipped while bowling in my socks **smart move Paula** this weekend and spent a few days on crutches). I arrived at O'Charleys first with a nice Christian friend before Ginger and Sandie. I thought I would be nice to the staff by telling them that we would be the most obnoxious party they would face all evening and likely all month. I explained that they would want to keep us as far away from the other customers as possible. I also warned the Christian friend that we were gonna get WAY out there so she better keep her blush reflex in check. Neither the hostess nor the Christian friend thought I was serious. Or maybe the hostess did take me for my word...cause they sat us REALLY close to the banquet table full of cops. BIG mistake. (They really should have found that table of priests from last time) As soon as Ginger arrived she sat down directly across from me and promptly boobie bombed me. Now I don't know how many of you have been boobie bombed by Ginger so I provided a picture that is now in the photos section of the group. Be warned...Ginger does not carry standard sized boobie bombs...they are Daisy Cutters (if you don't know what Daisy Cutters are don't feel lonely--I had to explain it to everyone at the table that night-- just start watching more news)! Now I spent the rest of the evening TRYING to look Ginger in the face, but apparently I was under the influence of the Penndragon therefore Ginger's Daisy Cutters were the first, middle and last things I saw that night. Shortly thereafter the cops started rolling in. Now I'm sure the hostess thought she was being really smart. I'm sure she thought the best way to be sure we behaved was to sit us as close as possible to a table full of men with guns, billy-clubs and handcuffs. Of course all this did was get us started. (Seems -according to Ginger- they did not have this problem when it was a table full of priests.) So we spent a good part of the night keeping Spartanburg County's finest under surveillance. Ginger even had a peephole worked out around the dividing wall and the potted plants. We have decided that next time we will request that they sit us as close as possible to marines, preferably Marine MPs. We do NOT want the Marine Chaplains. Sandie forgot to wear anything low cut, but she did attempt to participate in the boobie bomb war. See the pictures in the photos section of the yahoo group. Ginger also shared the secret to staying wrinkle free...and if I can learn to stop exercising my eyebrows then I'll have these wrinkles out of there in no time. A couple of drinks later Ginger said something that pushed the Christian Friend's blush reflex over the edge. See the photos! So there we were, 20 cops, several drinks, lots of loud laughing (the manager checked on us ONCE and then pretended we were not there the rest of the night), several attempts to covertly photograph the cops, and lots of blushing from the "new girl". Anything else Ginger? Blessings, Paula ---------- FROM GINGER'S DESK- Well, You innocently forgot to take a picture of YOUR boobs which you were 'bombing' back at me (and the cops) Like I was ...well we REALLY should call it "cleavage" cause these people on the list will think me and you were literally flashing 'all' our boobs around, when both of us just had the girls hoisted WAY up on WELL padded bras, and hung out over low cut tops... yeah somehow Sandie missed the memo about the dress uniform of the night....I just happened to have recently found the magical brand and style of bra that actually gives me cleavage , that I always wanted...so I'm big on showing it off since I got those,as Beth calls them "magic boob bras" the last few months...I don't know what YOUR excuse is for flashing __YOURS!___ I guess that is all, except for you also innocently forgot to mention all drooling you were doing over the cops and their ah...ah... 'tools of the trade'... which I of course had no part in at all...I was peeping through those plants for some other reason.... ah I forget what that reason was but... I guess that about covers it... except you forgot to mention the next APA LNO is Feb 25th. it'll be down there in Paula's area again, (cause that's the only way we can get Miss bookworm to come) Beth is coming here that am so she and I can take the APA church van down with whoever wants to come with...so email me off list ASAP if you want to go...and of course run out and get a low cut blouse or dress before then. Blessings, Ginger -------------------- FROM OUR BOOK OF SHADOWS: Hymn to Ra (from Pyramid inscriptions) "Praise be to thee, Oh Ra, exalted power, the sender forth of light into his Circle; thou art he who maketh the darkness to be in his Circle and thou coverest those who are therein. Praise be to thee, Oh Ra, exalted power, the illuminer of bodies in the horizons; thou art he who entereth into his Circle." ------------------------- SACRED SITES SECTION: (Submitted By Ginger Strivelli) Brown Mountain lies on the border of Burke and Caldwell counties in Western North Carolina. Most of it is in the Pisgah National Forest. For at least 800 years mystical lights have been seen darting and creeping about the ridge on many a night. According to Cherokee Indian legend, a great battle was fought between the Cherokee and Catawba Indians around 1200 C.E. on Brown Mountain. The Cherokees believed that the lights were the spirits of Indian maidens who went on searching through the centuries for their husbands and sweethearts who had died in the battle…or the spirits of the departed warriors trying to be found by their searching wives and sweethearts.
