Twelve Hours Late on the Friday Johnny!

Did you know that it takes almost three hours to drive 20 minutes outta town, catch and tack up a pony, ride for a half hour, untack and groom, take her to pasture, catch red horse, tack her up, ride for a half hour, untack and groom, take her to pasture, feed apples, scratch forelocks, sweep barn, check water buckets, collect up hat-spurs-gloves and drive back home again??? Then Grandpar was just getting ready to do some work in our house before he and Grandmar head into the city to see the OP ERRR AHHHHH so I was sweeping insulation fragments. I couldn't use the computer since Me N Jethro are sharing it, which isn't nearly as romantic as it sounds, sadly, and he had this editing project to do, which was worth actual money, so I had to let him work! Later I had to buy raincoats for the kids and now it's bedtime. I wore lipstick and my famous "Johnny loves Heidi" hoodie to go out tonight. Now I am really feeling like something's missing. Because it's Friday. And you know how I like to celebrate my Fridays. It's tradition, and I am all about tradition. Especially when it's of my own inventing! Mwa ha ha ha ha ha! IT'S JOHNNY TIME!!!

The weather's cooling off in my neck of the woods, kids. Time to dig out your warm toque!


Whaddaya think? My 2007 Halloween costume??? Dress up like a Johnny character? (Again?)




Look at this guy's jacket! Look at it! And the blue plaid shirt!!!! Can you see why I love the guy???? I hate shopping but if he called me right now and said, "Hey Heidi, wanna go shopping at the Country Depot for plaid shirts?" I'd be like, "I'm getting in the truck immediately and I'm bringing cash!!!"



I lifted this picture off an interview in which the reporter wondered if this guy ever gets told that he looks like Johnny Depp. Everybody is smaller in real life than they appear on a screen. I know this first hand. I also know that I've been told I look like about five different actresses and several people's Italian/French/Swiss cousin.


Some days I feel like this...


And some days I feel like this...


Mostly I feel like this...



HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!

me too....you know, what you said

Heidi the Hick said...

yep. I know.

Well, first of all, you are working too hard. Use a dart gun on the pony to make it easier to catch him/her. Tie some rakes on either side of the haler so that the pony can be groomed as it is unloaded. Get a big tread mill and tie the big horse to it for exercise. And, secondly, tell Jethro that if he wants any Heidi that night be had better come across with the computer. And finally, who is this Johnny character and what does he have to do with horses???

LeRoy Dissing said...

LOL...I think there is a close addictive association between Johnny, the horses and Heidi. But I am afraid to touch that one!

Heidi the Hick said...

Hahaha! Coffeypot, you are a genius of efficiency!!!!

A REALLY big treadmill!

Yeah, I was generous with the computer sharing thing...but he could make an invoice from the little editing job, and he didn't have to go to the studio for it! So I'm all for moving as much work home as possible. But I did miss my little spurt of blog stuff. I'm okay now.

So who is this Johnny character? Ohhhhh just some guy....that I admire....and I like watching movies he's in....and sometimes I dream that we draw cartoons of each other...as dogs....wearing glasses....


I post pictures of him because his face makes me happy but also, I AM NOT ALLOWED TO POST PICTURES OF MY HUSBAND so this guy'll have to do! hee hee!

LeRoy, pretty much, yeah. But it's really quite wholesome and healthy. Which I repeat over and over to myself daily!

Biddie said...

Imagine having to share your computer with 4 other people???
I am so better at sharing when I don't have to.

FOUR DINNERS said...

I take it you throw things at anybody who mentions Vanessa Paradis then? (I ducked just in case)

What about Johnny Rotten? No?

Heidi the Hick said...

Biddie, I know! I got so spoiled having my own computer! (this sucks.)

4D- Nah, I love Vanessa because Johnny loves Vanessa. I'm all generous that way. And Johnny Rotten? Who doesn't love Johnny Rotten?????

rain said...

Seriously.

rain said...

He really is kinda

rain said...

I dunno

rain said...

lost for words!

Heidi the Hick said...

That's what I...

huh?

Yeah.

dilling said...

huh? you've lost me

dilling said...

By the way? I LOVE seeing Green Wellies in your Link LineUp.
She is GREAT people. The best.

LeRoy Dissing said...

I hear ya Heidi...we are all dealing with our addictions - some better than others. Love your daily mantra though. It works for you and thats what counts.

As for me, I will fill my coffee cup again (one of my addictions). I regulate myself to only two cups daily of the leaded stuff in the morning. Anything else has to be decaffinated. How do you decaffinate Johnny? I am sure he is a stimulant to someone I know!

Heidi the Hick said...

Dilling, huh? Wha?

Green Wellies is awesome! Hug her for me next time you see her!

LeRoy, decaffinated Johnny! haha! I am basically addiction free. I have never been a coffee drinker and I only drink herbal tea. Caffeine and I do not get along. I have a history of chest pains and that'll only make it worse. I don't smoke. I might have a beer in the evening but I'm not a big drinker. I don't even eat chocolate everyday!

Yep that's me- wholesome and healthy!

Palm Springs Savant said...

those are some good photos of jonny. I almost forgot how many different roles he has played- lots of good ones too!

KSHIPPYCHIC said...

*swoon* I am never disappointed when I come here for a visit!! :)

A Paperback Writer said...

Oh my.
I haven't spent so much time drooling over pics of a star since I outgrew my Shawn Cassidy obsession in 1978.
And I haven't got an alternative man to drool over in real life like you do, so I thank you doubly for your postings of the eye candy.

LadyBronco said...

All hail Johnny Fridays!

I was so distracted by the drool spilling out the hole in my bottom lip I missed whatever it was I think you were saying - or at least trying to say.

Could you repeat that?

*God, he's hot*

LadyBronco said...

And may I point you to this website?

Lots of Johnny here.

Oh.

Yeah.

Heidi the Hick said...

I'm just sayin...

the man could talk me into shopping.

After Brad takes me out for groceries.

Brad, groceries.

Johnny, everything else.

I'm just saying.

Heidi the Hick said...

Lady B, I can't open that website...which is probably for the best, since it might clash with my healthy and wholesome thing.

(squeeze eyes shut- wholesome! wholesome!)

Heidi the Hick said...

really funny word if you say it over and over...

Heidi the Hick said...

and yeah, he is hot. Just look at the sweat! Must have been a really humid day. Poor guy.

Okay I'm done now.

LadyBronco said...

Try this instead -

www.provocateuse.com

Click on any picture collection, then scroll down & click on Johnny's name. (all names are listed first name first)

Just keep chanting 'healthy and wholesome' in your mind.

Yeah.

captain corky said...

Can I borrow a third of your work ethic. I need to get off of the couch and get to work today. ;)

Heidi the Hick said...

I don't know, man, somehow I make it seem here like I work my butt off...but I still have about ten things at the end of the day that I either completely forgot about, or just didn't get done.

I think I'm totally lazy!

Maybe I'm comparing myself to my two incredible Mennonite grandmothers who were farmer's wives and made all the family's clothes, quilts, canned foods, and still found time to read the bible eery day and keep a journal. I mean, try meansuring up to that.

Then go have a quick couch nap.
