My Serenade.

I am still tired from yesterday. It was fast and furious...a go-go-go kind of 24 hours.

At the end of frantic but fun days, I crave the comfort of my warm bed. This past Sunday I put on the flannel sheets for the first time this season, and all I want is to be enveloped in cuddly softness while reading my book and listening to the hum of the fan. Oh, and Scott...honeysweetiebabycutie...would you bring me a mini Coke, please? I love you.

Just before falling asleep I felt tension lingering in my muscles...sore neck and back, sore knees (from scrubbing the shower--those Mr. Clean Magic Erasers get the job done, but it took two to accomplish it halfway...more scrubbing later on today...sigh...), and tired eyes. All I wanted was a massage or a hot oil scalp treatment, neither of which was available at midnight in Pennington Gap, Virginia.

I found the next best thing. And I let him lull me to a blissful, dream-filled slumber that was rivaled only by the gentle sleep of a newborn or a really elderly man on a Saturday afternoon.

He's better than any sleeping pill, y'all.



Conway Twitty...the original crooning pervert and his amazing white man 'fro. May Conway always bring me happiness with his two best loved words..."Hello, Darlin'..." And may he rest in peace.

Try him, y'all...it makes for super sleeping, I kid you not.

Heather and Tiff, I'm prescribing some Pimp Daddy Conway for you girls, too...and a pink flask...I know you need it after yesterday! Love y'all & appreciate all your hard work.

Niiiiiice....My husband does a great imitation of CT!

I can't sleep, maybe this music will help meezzzzzzzzzzzz.

JourneytoFamily said...

Oh no. No, no no no no. This makes me nervous. But I'm ok. sigh. I can handle it. Yes we're still friends. I'm not breaking up with you over this.

Girl, next time you need help sleeping, trade in that mini coke for a glass of wine and watch some Bob Ross. Works every time.

Oh, I do love me some Conway. I've never thought about listening to him when I needed to sleep, but I could see why it would be soothing.

Yaya said...

Okay-you are seriously on EVERYONE's top five SiTS list!!!!!!!

Amy said...

You crack me up, from Muse to Conway Twitty. A broad range of taste, I like that.
Now listen to me, go get a massage today!!!

heathersister said...

Next time girl try s*x, it's got to be better than CT. OMG, now I can see why you and Heather get along so good. That guy is just creepy. (Sorry)

Shelley said...

Hey Lula,

Thanks for the props yesterday. I got 10 comments. WOO HOO. That's 6 more than I usually ever get.
Yesterday was way fun and I found some more good blogs to read.

My mama was the original Conway fan. And I still love him to this day.

You ROCK!!!

Heather said...

OMG.

Do you know that I went to Twitty City? And liked it?

Do you know that the day Conway died, I heard about it in the car on my home from nursing school and started bawling my eyes out? I could barely get the words out to tell my mom why I was crying...

Do you know that I saw Conway Twitty in concert three times? He was my first concert ever when I was, like, ten years old. Reba McEntyre was his opening act, along with a little duo called The Judds.

There are so many reasons I love you. This is just one more.

Now I'm gonna go get me some tight fittin' jeans and croon along with your video...

Kelly said...

i'm intrigued by these mr clean magic erasers. haven't broken down and bought any yet. but they clean the tub?

Caroline said...

He reeks of country pimposity, if that's possible. Mr. Baseball's hair could probably rival Conway's if he let if grow out, and if he wasn't losing some hair on the back of his noggin. Conway reminds me of someone...if I think of it I'll totally email you.

How did your thing at the library go last night? Did Edward make an appearance?

Lula! said...

CAROLINE WINS!!!!!
I'm sorry, but "country pimposity" is the funniest thing I've ever heard.

I don't know what you win, Caro, but girl...you totally win. Thanks for making me cackle this morning!

Rhea said...

Yesterday was awesome. It's hard to top that. I was in sweet happiness all day, blogging away.

Flannel sheets sound divine right now. We aren't quite cold enough for that.

Kori said...

My mom was in-love with COnway Twitty back in the 80's. Him and Kenny Rogers.

Loved yesterday. I had a great time. And dude I want a pink flask but with A Pumpkin SPice Frappucino from Starbucks in it.

April said...

You really should live in Mississippi!

sassy stephanie said...

Conway Twitty. Haven't heard that one in quite some time.

Can you imagine having a name like Conway? Or Twitty? Or Conway Twitty?

Shannon said...

Hello, Darlin',,,

hee hee hee!

THANKS for the birthday wishes!

CaraBee said...

That "Hello Darlin'" puts a smile on my face every single time. I'm not a big country fan, but that old school stuff is so soothing. Reminds me of sitting on the porch at my great-aunt's house drinking sun tea out of jelly jars.

scargosun said...

I love you dearly but...

Conway Twitty?

Really?

Marrdy said...

My right arm and hand are still tingling. Oh Conway, used to love him big time. Conway and Loretta...good memories. and yes, now he can put me to sleep!

Kimberly said...

Awe LULA - that is so cute!

Live.Love.Eat said...

I'm gonna have to get jiggy with twitty later when I can hear!!!! Shuckaroo. Get some rest!!!!!!!!!

Heather said...

Every good southern girl should fall asleep to the Pimp Daddy Conway with a pink monogrammed flask tucked lovingly against their breast. It's why I love you and long to kiss you full on the mouth. "Just sayin'"

Ooohhh, I need to get me some flannel sheets.

Eudea-Mamia said...

Ah, flannel sheets - maybe come December here in Texas!

From one Georgia Peach (Roswell) to another - Thank you, Thank you, Thank! you for the Crackliture Basket from SITS. I still can't wipe the stupid grin off of my face.

Honest, I had to call Dear Hubby at work to let him know.

Em

Kat said...

My dear Lula. Is eclectic your middle name? I so wonder what would come out of the ear buds if your ipod was on random.

I can't wait to hear about Edward and the tweens at the library...

Amy said...

"Hello Darlin"...love it :D

Thanks so much for 'alerting' me to my winnings over on SITS! I am ECSTATIC!!! wooohooo :D

Insane Mama said...

There is nothing better that flannel sheets and a mini coke when you are sleepy...

Kimberly said...

Have you seen all of these?

stefanie said...

...the original crooning pervert and his amazing white man 'fro...

I was all relaxed and sleepy thinking I needed a Coke too even though I don't drink it and maybe some flannel sheets and then you dropped the bomb. That's funny!

Blissful Babe said...

OMG. Say it isn't so? Blick! But, everyone is entitled to their fetish. Yours just happens to have a fro.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Conway Titty huh?

Oooooookaaaaaay.

Did you notice how the chick in the red dress was feeling herself up the whole time?

P.S. I added Pearl to the bottom of my post today. PAY THE RENT BITCH!

Tony C said...

I started the video and a lady in my office came right over. She listens to CT every stinking day. Don't get me wrong, I like Conway from time to time, but please...Slow Hand rings in my sleep.

Pennington Gap...just up the road from Tony C. Home of the Generals.

Christie said...

Man, I could have used this last night...I'm sure it'll help tonight.

Jennifer P. said...

You had me all sleepy at flannel sheets before throwing "hello darlin'" in there :)! Yes--Heather and Tiffany should probably get a little liquored up after that party yesterday :)!

Jen said...

I am almost asleep already. Maybe its the song, maybe its the wine, or maybe its the fun of a birthday.

I am totally game for being friends but I hope that there is no blood swapping or anything cause thats just gross. Just ask Heather if you don't believe me. ;)

Brandy said...

Flannel sheets = yes!
CT = NO! (And someone wrote Conway "Titty" in an earlier comment...LOL!)

Girl did you have some rum with that mini coke...it would have help to ease you into a stupor.

KristiLU said...

Okay so your blog keeps me in tune with you guys...I feel like I never get to see you! It is nice to know that you are still Leigh Anne!

ParentingPink said...

HaHaHa! I love the Conway! Well, sort of. I remember seeing all of those cheap infomercials growing up pleading with me to buy his latest & greatest album. Gotta love a man that has the last name Twitty!

Angie's Spot said...

CT always reminds me of Hee Haw for some reason. Ah, the good ol' days.
