A big thanks to Zoetawny for this adorable graphic.  Just wanted to get it up so Jackie sees it first thing when she turns the computer on, whenever that may be.

Woops, just crossed over as you were uploading Jackie! How's that for timing!

DWTS finale and Bacheloretter premiere tonight!

joy n said...

Zoetawny, that's about the coolest homecoming graphic you could have done! Her cat, her computer and her cyberfriends message awaiting. Thanks for all that you've done, too, Zoetawny, in Jackie's absence. You and Sydney, both made this so much easier for all of us.

I'm so glad she's home safe and well on the way to being sound.

Becky said...

Zoetawny, wonderful graphic! You are so talented.

Jackie, welcome home. Curl up on the couch with a good book and your kitty, kick back and (as we tell our dogs) HEAL!

Sydney, thank you for your updates.

Auntie Leigh said...

Zoetawny and Sydney have done a great job. Kudos to you both. I love this little spot in the cyber world. Get well soon, Jackie. Love, Auntie Leigh

WELCOME HOME JACKIE!!!!!

What's great about being home is you know all the food delivery places in your neighborhood!! Sometimes all those healthy things you prepared ahead of time just don't sound as good as a pizza!! Now she'll be able to get her favs.

Jackie I bet your kitty is happy to have been sprung early, too.

Just get the DVR set and sleep as much as you need to. We'll muddle through and check for your posts when your ready.


Zoe--your graphics are the coolest :) Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

Sydney said...

OK-- Bachelorette candidates being reviewed. My first impression -- a few good ones and a few NO WAY'S: blonde hair gel guy -- out. Christian singer, out

LIke Hair salon owner, and Jason single dad... HE's #1 so far. Cute and Mature ANd they gave him a lot of time so maybe he's in the running) . LIked the guy who was from Dallas, sounded sincere.

Not sure about Science geek guy. IS anyone watching right now??

joy n said...

Not so sure about the 28 yr. old virgin. He's a pro-football player. They don't seem to go together.

joy n said...

That's quite the dress DeAnna's wearing!

Tattoo guy is a wild man!

Sydney said...

Joy -- The christian singer/virgin and the football player are the same guy?

It IS some dress! She looks beautiful, and I'm sure they got her a trainer and put her on the zone diet or some such thing too. Does she look just a little he looks slimmer and fitter now?

Wow, I saw her breath in the air. How can she be standing out there in that dress.

Joy, so glad you're watching too.

Sydney said...

Guy #3 r-- the one who buttoned his suit and had a great smile --really cute.

Funny how much more time the guys are taking to talk to her and she is cutting them off like, OK I'll see you in side.

It has to be nerve wracking to do this.

UGH, Jesse the Rocker...

Sydney said...

Jon the hair gel guy. The science guy looks pretty good ewhen he smiles. We thinking that Brian might have really connected.

Twilley has that you can tell I wax my brows look, lol. For all my grooming of male clients, I tried to make sure they didn't do that!

joy n said...

Jesse turned me off too. I didn't catch the Christian singer thing, but it sounds like it is the same guy. I'm taping to catch more details later.

joy n said...

Ron is CUTE. Patrick C. needs a haircut.

joy n said...

Robert is tall. Love a salsa man!

joy n said...

She really has the butt for that gown.

Sydney said...

Looks like she likes the Dallas guy -- and the Chicago guy came off at least warm and friendly.

joy n said...

Yes, she does look slimmer and more toned.

Sydney said...

Joy do you remember the name of the person who had the son who they showed so much of in the beginning?

joy n said...

I'd have given Jeremy a rose, too.

Sydney said...

Nevermind it was Jason, and he is the one to get her for one on one time first.

joy n said...

I was about to say Jason and they just showed him. He's one of my faves already.

Sydney said...

How'd you think it went with the oyster farmer?

Sydney said...

THe chef is coming off as arrogant.. is he?


It s so hard to judge right now because it's got to be nerve wracking to be there.

joy n said...

I like the oyster farmer, but I'm thinking he's maybe on the shy side?

Yes, the chef seems a bit full of himself.

I'm not liking Donato either, right now.

joy n said...

That's quite a rock on Jenny's finger. She looks happy.

joy n said...

She LIKES Richard, the science guy!

joy n said...

Sean is a show-off.

Sydney said...

The abs guy is the one she seemed to connect with so well just out of the car. I thought she was going to give him the first rose. But the editing made it look like he freaked her out.

ANd what was with the guy who asked Jenny to sit on his lap. She does have that big ring on her finger.

Oh, the unlikely match for D. of the crazy dressed guy is a great guy according to Jenny.

joy n said...

I hope Jason gets the third rose.

Sydney said...

Joy -- Sean is the chef?

And the guy who rips his shirt off has some kind of break out on his chest (maybe from waxing) and should NOT I repeat NOT show it off...

Sydney said...

Dang that guy Brian blew it and came off like a teenager.

joy n said...

Robert is the chef. Sean is the martial arts guy.

joy n said...

I like Graham, too. A gentleman.

Sydney said...

Good convo Graham!!!! The guy with the cute smile out of the car too.... He's a contender.

Sydney said...

OK Joy, I see Sean, with the long hair. I predict he's got issues. Science guy got the rose.

joy n said...

She really likes the science guy, Richard.

Sydney said...

Hope she lets the blonde hair gel resort manager go. Not that he's not a nice guy, he's just not her type.

Say goodbye to Sean too!!!

joy n said...

Sydney, Jessie has the long hair. He had the cup on his head. Sean is the guy doing the chop-chop.

joy n said...

So far, (it's still early, but) not crazy about Robert (chef), Chandler (abs), Donato (tough guy), Brian (duck call), Sean (karate guy), Paul (her name on his trunks) or Jessie (long-haired snowboarder).

Tom`S said...

Welcome home Jackie! We missed you!
Home is where you belong!
Zoetawny and Sydney great job!
I'm watching Spurs Basketball, along side Bacheloretter.
It appeared as though she liked the guy from Dallas.

I missed all of you, I'm ready for Big Brother.

Sydney said...

Arrgh she chose Sean!!!

Sydney said...

ANd RYAN!?!?

joy n said...

Do like Graham, Richard (science guy), Luke (oyster guy), Jason (single dad), Eric (Greek guy), Ron (with ex-wife),

joy n said...

Pick Jason!

joy n said...

She did!

joy n said...

No science guy! awww.

joy n said...

No Luke, either.

joy n said...

Tattooman, be gone!

Sydney said...

GLad she let the trainer go.... aah, that is who the tatoo guy is (a drunk one to boot).

Sorry she didn't choose Chandler. I think his tears were tongue in cheek.

Sydney said...

No wait... didn't she give the third first impression rose to Robert or Richard the science guy????

joy n said...

OOH, she did pick Richard, the science guy.

joy n said...

I caught my error, Sydney. Richard is in.

joy n said...

Well, they've got me hooked. I'll be watching this season.

Sydney said...

Well, you have company on that. I wonder who else watched tonight. I think Meb said she'd peek in, and I bet dla did too... Did Stupidcupid????? We won't know maybe until we have a talk sidebar.

joy n said...

That would be great. There were a lot of comments on the Bachelor and I imagine there will be for this one, too.

monty924 said...

Awesome homecoming graphic Zoetawny. I watched the Bachelorette tonight and it looks like it will be a good one. I didn't get into the last one so much. I've pretty much given up on the Bachelor.

I really like Jason and Richard at this point. I hope she doesn't reject Jason for not telling her in the first episode about his son, but we don't know that she didn't or Jenny didn't and they edited it out. From the sneek peeks, it looks like he may go far into the season.

pepsip said...

Welcome home Jackie!!

Though I've been a reader of this blog for over 2 years, I haven't commented until you went to the hospital. I know that all of your readers have missed you terribly and wish you a speedy recovery!

Zoetawny said...

Welcome home, Jackie!!!!!!!

I was thrilled to hear the news.
I'm eager to hear all about your experience when you're feeling up to it. I've got to know how you talked your doctor into discharging you to go home and not to rehab. Amazing! I know you didn't want to go to rehab in the worst way. I'm sure Scherzo was happy to see you and be back at home in her familiar cozy spot. Please take it nice and slow and allow some pampering and caretaking. I'm assuming that a home nurse or PT might be coming to your place to help you for at least a few days. Maybe rehab can send over a wheelchair cab across the street to pick you up. J/K I know you will take care of yourself and do the right thing for optimum healing and best results.

Sydney...

Was that perfect timing or what? Thanks so much for being on top of it and updating us ASAP. I don't know what we would have done without you. It was a huge responsibility and you did a SUPER job!

You won't believe this...I wrote a nice long post but when I hit publish it all disappeared. I don't have the energy to try to remember all what I wrote again.

I did watch the Bachelorette tonight and it will be fun to share it with all of you. I was a big fan of the Bachelor the first few seasons. But then it was too painful to watch the girls lower their self-esteem and throw themselves all over a guy they just met so I stopped watching. I didn't watch DeAnna in the Bachelor but she seems like she's real and very sweet. Maybe someone can fill me in on her personality. Her dress was stunning on her. I fell for Jason already. ;) Did they mention why he was a single dad? Tattoo guy was disgusting. We'll have some fun with this one.

Jackie...

Have a peaceful good night's sleep.
We'll be hanging out here so there's no rush.

BIG HUGZZZZZZZZZZ!
Niters!

((( Jackie ))) Welcome home!

Sydney, spectacular job as cub reporter! You were terrific! :)

Zoetawny, PERFECT graphic! (as always!!)

I want to read everyone's comments re: The Bachelorette... I watched, and am anxious to see what everyone thought.

dla said...

pOK, I am caught up!

Loved DeAnna's dress, but thought it needed to be a bit shorter, as she was self conscious and had to keep lifting it up to move. That distraction had to have been annoying. :)

She does look good, and I agree, Sydney. I am sure she was on a strict diet, workout, etc, to prep for this.

What a crew of guys! I had forgotten just how different the guys can be from the girls since we have not seen The Bachelorette in a while! So much testosterone in the room! lol

Favorites right off the bat would be (in alphabetical order as I had to go to the website to remember names - lol):

Brian W - Texas
Eric
Graham
Jason
Jeremy
Richard

I think she kept Jesse (snow boarder) and the guy who jumped in the pool (what is his name??) simply due to their Xtreme Measures to get her attenion! Don't see a love connection with either... Do you??

That personal trainer / tattoo boy / wolf man did not do anything for me at all! And why did she keep Sean, the martial arts guy?? I didn't get that one, either.

Looks like it could be good, and, from th previews, lotsa drama. I guess that is the reason we watch, so good! HA

Susan in FL said...

Welcome home Jackie ! Good to have you back. I am having a breast biopsy (gulp) today, May 20. Wish me luck.

Sydney said...

Susan in FL--

I will be thinking of you today. Please let us know what they learn. I am seeing you right now in perfect, vibrant health!
