The nation's newest Miss USA
winner is from Cranston R.I..
Olivia Culpo is her name.
Wow.. R.I. can you believe that..
Rhode Island never gets to
win the beauty contest. I don't know
why, as R.I. has a lot of
beautiful women. So many of them.
Portuguese, Italians, Irish
and French women of R.I. are beauties.
Just to name some of them.
But each year they get
passed over. Texas seems to have the
winners, and other southern
states rate up high there too... but
northern states don't rate
in the top 10. Idaho won once. I think
Washington state might have.
I don't know if Maine or New
Hampshire has or
Vermont. So for R.I. to finally make it
Congratulations, Ms Culpo.

Luckily never getting any of
the guest. Which were all in their
winter jackets. We had a large tent (for shade.. LOL... like
going to happen), but
everyone gathered in the living room.
Oh, yea.. we had balloons to
let loose. For some reason the King
wanted to keep them all
together, instead of letting them go
one by one.. They flew up in
the air.... about 10 or 15 feet, over
across the neighbors yard to
the telephone pole and wrapped around
the pole, popping left and
right.....they were there for like a week looking
like a poor man's makeup
job, until the electric company came to cut
So today's weather doesn't
surprise me.. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY
TO MY SWEET KING.. thank you
for putting up with me.. making me
feel like I am your Queen,
even during those days, that I am more like
a witch.. (actually with a
