The Grass Eating Moo Cow

Is staying.... Yes, the daily Les Miles saga ended yesterday. The "Grass Eating Moo Cow" isn't going to Michigan. Those were my friend Wendy's exact words. I'm still laughing!  What's really funny is that Wendy really likes Les! Imagine what's being said by all the people that really don't like him. I personally don't have a problem with him except for the fact that when you listen to him talk you either want to yell at him to "spit it out" because he ums & ahs so much or you have no idea what he just said. Ever heard the term talking in circles? That would be Les. Some of you may be wondering why Wendy called him a grass eating Moo Cow. Well that would be because he eats grass. You think I'm kidding?

During the Bama game they showed him pick a blade of grass & eat it. The game was on National  TV so everyone saw it & it was all over everywhere. When asked about it Les said this.... "I'll put my knee on the ground and look for a small blade now and then. You might try it. It's not a bad deal. I suspect it's better than chewing tobacco and some other things that people put in their mouths. I've always seemed to enjoy a blade or two now and then, not that this was a meal in any way but more of kind of being in touch with where I was at.". I'm so glad it wasn't a meal Les.... He's our coach & thanks to the contract extension he received yesterday, he will be for the next 7 years! 

Moving on. Right after Christmas I received an email from Nine West that they were having a sale. Of course I checked things out. I found a super cute pair of black closed toe heels. I don't have any of those. They were on sale & then there was an additional percentage off. My total price with tax & shipping was $25. Aren't they great?
I love them! I'm wearing them for the first time today. The original price for these was $70. I love a deal!

Toodles!

  2. I'm kinda glad he's staying...you really can't argue with his record, and I think it's about time a coach had some loyalty and integrity. I can't wait for the 2011 season. Love the shoes!

  7. Those are great shoes, but my "old" feet started screaming just seeing the photo. I still have plenty of heels, just not pointy-toed ones. The only things I can claim are little on this body would be my feet -- size 6. Well, my hands are little, too, but who cares? I wear a lot of the round-toed shoes, both flats & heels & those work pretty well on this grandma. I did get a bargain yesterday on a Nine West purse. It was originally $98, marked down to "$26. It's that deep red color and I love it. Thought the post about Les was hysterical.
