Dancing with the elderly


Edna:  You know, in my day, I could really turn heads out on the dance floor but I'm just not that flexible any more.  I don't know how this lady in Ohio does it, but she's still doing splits at 94 years old!  Gosh, I hope she takes Boniva or something, you could really break a hip that way.

Margie: You turned heads for sure because your partners always yelled when you smashed their toes!

Boniva? She'd best have a few stiff drinks before she dances. I'm no fool so I'll just sit here and watch TV dancing.

Edna:  At least she's brave enough to get out there and dance at her age.  When was the last time you did something unexpected for your age, Margie?  Oh wait, you act like a floozy all the time so I guess I have my answer.

Fall TV Review


Margie: Edna, there were lots of new TV shows last week and I found some favorites. I don't like Dancing With The Stars but I'm watching because my friend, Nancy Grace is on it. She's doing a great job too. At least she doesn't step on her partner's toes like somebody I know does, sister.

I really liked Person Of Interest. I love to watch a handsome man kick tushie. My favorite new show, though, was Revenge. That show could give a person lots of ideas. What did you like, Edna?

Edna:  Oh no you don't!  You're just trying to trick me into revealing my favorite new show because you know that as soon as I do, it will get canceled.  Well, I'm on to you sister!

All right, maybe I liked Ringer, just a little bit.  I'm finding it a little confusing, though.

Margie: Edna, that's because you're always confused. I think I'll get my pistol and cancel you!

Edna:  Kiss my grits, harpy.  While we're on the subject of you being an idiot, why didn't the DVR tape
Terra Nova last night like I set it to?  Admit it, you erased the recording because you knew the show was about dinosaurs and you were afraid you'd spot one of your old boyfriends.


Margie: That wasn't all I erased, nitwit.

Edna:  That's true.  You erase at least a year off your age every time you have a birthday.  Keep that up and pretty soon you'll be too young to drive legally.

Breakfast Honey


Margie: Edna, why in tarnation do you have to be so dang selfish? I made my breakfast this morning and everything was all nice and hot. I go to get the honey which you know I put on my biscuit every morning. Was there any honey? No, selfish, there was none. You ate the last of it & didn't replace it.

Well, you won't best me, sister. I just called Cousin T and had him go get me some. I sure do feel fine after a healthy breakfast!

Edna:  You try pouring that on your biscuit and you'll be drinking your breakfast.  Which I suppose you'd enjoy more anyway, you lush.

Supernatural's back!

We know everyone is talking about fall TV this week, we are too.  Supernatural returns tonight with its Season 7 premiere.  While we're not sure what this season holds, we do know that they boys have a lot of fun on set.  While you're waiting for tonight, why don't you check out the Season 6 gag reel from last season's DVD?

Criminal Minds


Margie: I'm feeling my oats today, friends. I made a plan with Mrs. Pastor to get Edna out of the house tonight so I can watch Criminal Minds. Mrs. Pastor is going to ask Edna to help at church for a party for the children. There is one good thing I can say about Edna and that is that she loves children.

Criminal Minds 7th season starts tonight and it's going to be awesome. Prentiss returns from the dead and you know the team is going to be highly upset about that. This season will also highlight the personal sides of the agents' lives like Rossi's ex-wife paying a visit.

I'd best go get my snacks ready.

Male fashion..what??

Edna:  I have lived a long life and have seen many things.  But never in all my born days did I ever think I'd live to see men wearing pantyhose and carrying purses.  Margie, what do you make of this?

Oh my!

Margie: Edna, I miss the days when men were men. Can you imagine Daddy wearing panty hose? Mama would have put him in the mental. Besides, sister, I'm not about to trust a man with a purse!

Edna:  I think man-fashion has gone too far. Pantyhose aren't comfortable for women, and we don't have nearly the amount to pack into them that men do.  I feel sorry for those boys who wear pantyhose, talk about being a slave to fashion.

You know, equality between the sexes is a wonderful ideal.  I think people should be able to wear whatever they want to, and it wasn't that long ago that women wearing slacks was frowned upon.  But there are plenty of things men wear that I wouldn't want to, like neckties.  And plaid flannel.  We've got to draw the line somewhere, and I say it should be drawn right before you get to "idiotic".

Margie: Well, sister, some men need to wear a girdle! Too many Big Macs these days. All I can say is that all men should pay attention to the clothes worn by Jensen Ackles and Nathan Fillion. I bet you wouldn't catch those two with a purse or wearing high heels!

Final Fillion Friday

We've come to our final Fillion Friday for a while.  But don't be sad, dear readers! Castle is coming back on Monday September 19th and we get to have brand new Nathan for a spell.  Needless to say, we are very excited. Watch the clip below to bring you up to speed in time for the season premiere.


Also, if you want to see Nathan talk about his descent into becoming a crazy cat person, head on over here for his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this past Monday.

Fall Recipes


Margie: Edna, it's getting cooler every day and that means Fall is almost here. My appetite picks up in cool weather and I've been studying on what I want to eat. I have a hankering for a Yankee Pot Roast but do you think I can find all the ingredients here in Jericho? We're not exactly Yankees.

Edna:  That's just a name, idjit.  I don't see any reason why you can't make the gol-durned thing and just call it "Jericho Pot Roast".  
This time of year, I'm craving squash.  I'm thinking of trying something like this squash soup recipe from Alton Brown. 
He may be crabby, but he does know his food.

Margie: He's no crabbier than you, sister. You just want that soup because you know squash doesn't agree with me.

Here's what I'm going to make & I do mean all of them.

Edna:  Whooee, you're going to need a lot of apples!  Before you make your grocery list, remember that I'm not going to pay for 34 pie's worth of apples.  Maybe one or two, though, especially if your lazy tushie is going to do the baking.

Margie: Edna, nobody asked you to buy a dang thing! Don't you worry about how I'm going to get all those apples. You don't pay, you don't eat.

It's that time again


Edna: Margie, when was the last time you dusted off this television set? It's like it's barely been used all summer. 

Margie: Edna, there's nothing good on summer television. I'd rather sit on the porch or sunbathe or hang out at Bailey's. When was the last time you did any dusting anyway? 

Edna: Well, I'm dusting now. Don't you know what time of year this is? It's fall premiere time! My lands, the way you complain about summer television, I would have thought you'd be counting down the days. I'm excited about our old favorites coming back, like Castle, but there are some good-looking new shows this year too. Have you heard about Ringer? It's got that "Buffy" girl and it looks very suspenseful. Oh, and it has that lovely Nestor Carbonell from LOST, too. 

Margie: I know exactly what time of year it is and I have my shows already scheduled. I don't know anything about a Ringer but that Secret Circle looks good. So does Person of Interest. I have to watch Dancing With The Stars even though I hate that show. You know how I love Nancy Grace so I'll be rooting for her. I hope she doesn't shame me. 

Edna: You tolerated me watching DWTS when mon cher Gilles was on, so I guess I can afford you the same favor. Just don't expect me to call and vote for her, in case there's someone I like better. There's a few comedies I'm looking forward to, like Suburgatory and New Girl. I know you don't like sit-coms, but if I can watch all those boring documentaries you like, then you can sit still long enough for me to watch something funny. 

Margie: Okay, you can watch those silly comedies but I'm putting in my ear plugs! You know, sister, we could get one of those DVR's if you weren't so stingy. I could watch Body of Proof, Unforgettable, and Anarchy when I pleased. I hate they're all on at the same time. It's odd that you like funny TV shows when you're always so sour. 

Edna: Just to show you how sweet I really am, I'll dip into my pin money to pay for a DVR. I consider it money well spent if it means you'll stop griping at me. Good Lord woman, close your mouth. You're attracting flies.

The people have spoken...Nathan is awesome!

As we continue to count down to September 19th, the Castle season 4 premiere, we've got a bit of a link roundup for this Fillion Friday.


First, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Nathan was named the 6th most popular star on primetime television by Entertainment Weekly!

However, we'd much rather read TV Guide, who ranked Nathan 2nd among the top 10 actors on television.  (Behind Jennifer Aniston, we can only assume most of the poll respondents were men.  I guess we shouldn't be too annoyed, Castle was ranked #6 in their top shows list.)    

Also (spoiler alert!), you can head over here to check out some on-set photos of Nathan and the Castle crew filming for the new season.

Finally, Nathan is going to be a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday Sept. 12th (12am EST/11PM Central).  You know we'll be tuning in with our popcorn popped and special tea at the ready.

Crock Pot Girls


Margie: As usual, Edna, I'm the one who finds the most interesting people. I am talking about the Crock Pot Girls. They're all the rage now and have taken Facebook by storm. There are 3 moms who decided to exchange crock pot recipes. Why should you care? You couldn't cook if your life depended on it.

Edna, maybe we should be the Special Tea Girls? We could be the Cordial Girls but you don't have a cordial bone in your sagging body. I hate trying to talk to you. I'm going to read some recipes.

Edna:  You sure don't have any trouble carrying a conversation by yourself, do you sister?  You go read your recipes, I'm going to go make a list of what I want you to cook for me.

Margie: I wonder, Edna, if you should start a blog and call it Delusions?

Margie's Sons of Anarchy

Margie: I am a happy woman. Jax and all my other boys return
to FX tomorrow night at 9 CST. There are no words to say how much I've missed them. I feel sorry for anybody who's missing the best series on TV.

For my Jax loving friends here's a little taste of what we'll see tomorrow. Don't
forget that the premiere is 90 minutes.

I love you Kurt Sutter!!!/photo.php?v=2339454974625&set=vb.17432988290&type=1&theater
