No Member Show Tonight

Another reminder that I am in North Texas and not able to guarantee that I will be online for the weekly member’s show tonight(11p EST). If I am online, please join me through the site link for easy access, but I will not be doing the member’s show, regardless. lol. I know, wishy washy to an extent, but without knowing whether or not the wifi will be stable enough to host a 1 hour member show, I’d rather save the frustrations and make it up to you next week…

Off to Texas

I did not think I would be going back to Texas so soon after my divorce, but here I am, on my way to the Lone Star state. And, yes, on purpose.

This post is just a reminder to follow my blog/tweets for the next eight days so that you can keep up with me, if you are so inclined to do so. I hope to be on cam from time to time, but there will be no set schedule. However, with that said, I will still do the VNA show Monday (February 18) at 11p EST.

Spam Calls

We all get them. Most of us ignore them. When I changed numbers in 2017, my daily spam calls stopped, and it was awesome! Gone were the multiple calls at random times, morning, noon and night. When I am asked by a business for my phone number at checkout, I decline. I am sorry, but I just want to buy this pair of socks, you don’t need my number. And, that attitude has protected me from the annoying spammers. That is until several months ago. I have two callers that call daily, at different times. Today I answered.

The first was a lady that was speaking so fast I only caught “I am calling from an internet car insurance service”. I said in an annoyed tone, “NOT interested. Take me off of your call list.” and, she was still speed talking until I said, “yeah, not interested, take me off of your list.” She, no doubt, gets rude responses daily, but I am sorry, that is one job I do not respect. It is intrusive, annoying and they continue to call until you answer. This has been going on for months, and on a daily basis. There is a fucking reason I have not answered. I would have blocked the number but it changes the last 2 digits each call, so their fucking sales people can continue to call. At any rate, she was just as snippy with me, telling me my number will be removed and then hung up on me. If they call back I am going to be fucking irate with whomever is calling. I know jobs can be difficult to come by, and believe me, I have been there but that, in no way earns my respect. Stop calling if the number does not pick up after 3 tries.

The second caller was about 5 minutes later and from an Austin area, but that number also changes. He left me a message a few months back, but he was too hard to understand. All I could hear was he is looking for a Mary someone. Today when he called I answered. It took awhile for the call to connect, which tells me it is most likely a spammer, and then he informed me I was being recorded. I interrupted him to tell him to get to it. He said he was looking for a Mary Savalla and blah blah.. yeah, you have the wrong number, please take it off your call list. Do you know her? Nope. Take me off of your call list. Okay, sorry for bothering you, please allow 2 days for it to be removed…. so yeah, not an important caller.

I seriously think that regulations need to be placed on businesses selling phone numbers, but also on those spammers and the rights of us as consumers. It has gotten out of hand. There is no reason my phone rings at random times, all from similar, but different numbers. I think Sunday might be the only day they take off from harassing people, all in hopes of selling fake car insurance or a vacuum that has been resold several times.

When I finally answer after months of letting it go to voicemail, it is never going to be good. They are lucky I was still waking up or else I’d have probably given them an ear full. lol. Fucking wankers.

I am My Mother

The older I get, the more like my mother I become. That is not a bad thing, by any means, but there was a time when I tried to be my own individual, trying my best to take no characteristics from my parents. I don’t know why, except it was my little bit of rebellion that I owned. They were great parents; I always knew that I was loved, and cared for. No matter their struggles in the adult world, they always put us first. Always.

Yesterday I was making my smoothie and I decided to add a little bit of honey. I don’t know why, but I thought it would “spice” it up a bit. I hate sticky stuff, probably as much as Mom did. In fact, she would not touch the syrup bottles because “the twins’ made sure to get that shit all over the sides of it. She hated syrup for that reason. It was sticky, and it could not be handled without getting “sticky” all over you. She also hated that Dad absolutely loved honey. He wasn’t a messy person, but he like his honey and there was always a little bit left on the sides. That bothered no one, except Mom. It would eventually drip down and get the cabinet shelves sticky. Mom was not an argumentative person, at all, but there was no question about her disdain for sticky. In turn I took a hate for honey, syrup and anything sticky. I totally understand what her hangup was about, and I support it! As a kid, I thought it was amusing and funny. As an adult, I am my mother. Let me take you back to my yesterday and the smoothie with a bit of honey added. We have a bottle of local honey that is so thick that it takes 5 minutes to drip, so I have it stored upside down. It seemed smart at the time. During the making of my smoothie that smart plan turned into one of the dumbest executions of bad judgement that I have had in awhile. It was quick to drip, but that drip turned into one big, long strand of very thick, sticky honey. It would not stop. I slowly, and gradually, tipped the bottle right side up and in doing so the honey continued to flow into a long, 2″ thick strand of silly string, all over the outside of my cup, all over the counter and, of course, on the outside of the honey bottle. And, guess who was watching me, with slight amusement, as she sat, waiting for her treat because she was at the boundary line to the kitchen? Abby the golden, with that beautiful face that showed me that I failed at my execution of keeping the sticky inside the smoothie. The rest of that honey bottle is in the trash. It was so sticky that there was no fixing that. Now, Mom, she was not one to waste anything, and I do admire that, but she knows not what I do today, so I will be fine knowing that I don’t have fucking sticky on the cabinet shelf.

I am also my father. I love honey.

North Texas

Next wednesday, February 13th, I will be flying to north Texas with MtnMan and we will be there for eight days. I will stay connected as much as possible, tweeting, and hopefully camming here and there, but with that said I won’t know how strong the internet connection is until we arrive. I will most definitely keep the VNA schedule as is, because that won’t take much wifi to stream. However, the network cam sites is another story.

So, let’s plan on doing the Thursday member’s (Feb 14th) show the following week. I will obviously be tweeting and reminding you guys with another blog thread, so as to not have you guys looking for me when I am not online. Again, I do not know how often I will be on cam, but I hope to try for an hour here and there, depending on the wifi connection.

I plan to film new content, and my hope is to get 3 months worth of videos in my stockpile. If you have a request, now is your time to send me ideas. angel@lonestarangel.com

I also hope to be wearing flip flops and TOMS while in Texas; here is wishing the weather gods be on my side and not send a freak ice storm to Texas for that week.. I mean, it is Texas, so something that drastic could actually happen despite their 80 degree temps they are seeing right now.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support of my site and cam shows. I appreciate all joins, regardless of what site it is you join through.

Another Win

You guys continue to amaze me with the support, no matter what endeavor I am pursuing. I placed 3rd on VNA for January, and that is three months in a row that I was in the top three. I have taken many wins on the VNALive platform and it is all because of those who join me on Monday nights and give me your votes.

Thank you to those who show up every so often, once a month, or every single week. I would not continue to offer member shows if it were not for those of you that join in and make it fun for me.

Belated Wishes to Someone Special

Nicster, I know this post is a couple of days late, but it is still made with heartfelt wishes. You have been one of mine for so many years that it is hard to believe we have celebrated your day for over a decade. That is crazy when it is put into perspective like that, and I cherish each one of the years we have spent together. I look back in astonishment that I am still online because it started out as a “hobby” for extra money, but it quickly turned into more. The reason I am putting that into words, in celebration of you, is because you were one of the first to encourage me to expand, try new things (such as creating a wishlist), and you are always the first to support me in those new endeavors. Not once have you suggested something and not been right behind me in support. So, as I send this out to everyone who reads my blog, I want to wish you a beautifully belated birthday, and I do hope that you did something for you, and that it was a great celebration for YOUR day. I look forward to observing the anniversary of your birth for many years to come. Thank you and a happy celebration of you!

Do You Know…

Do you know what love is?

A 6 month old golden retriever.

Do you know what is annoying?

That 6 month old golden retriever with a squeaky toy walking from one end of the house to the other, squeeking contsantly.

Do you know what is frustrating?

When this 6 month old golden retriever hates her picture taken, until I am trying to do custom pictures for someone and she is not the subject requested.

Do you know what happy is?

The tail of the 6 month old golden retriever whacking the wall as she runs into the room.

Happy Birthday to One of Mine!

Ack! Ack! Ack! This was posted on Tuesday, the correct day, but I did not select “Blog”, and instead it was hanging in “uncategorized” limbo, posting to nothing… Bubba, I am sorry! So, here we go…

This is a date that has been celebrated through my site for ten years now. That is just crazy! But, here we are, a decade later and still celebrating someone who deserves to be recognized and appreciated. Thank you, Bubba, for giving me your day to exploit. Whether in person, or from afar, I hope that you know how much you matter. So, on this day, have yourself an amazing celebration of you! I hope that it is a happy day, and one that you enjoy and cherish.

The Messenger

I’m always amazed at the thoughtfulness and generosity that has been shown to me from my online community. My last PO Box run was to pick up a few packages, and to mail off a big panty order. In one of the packages that was waiting for me was a beautiful messenger bag adorning elephants, which was not on my wishlist. Bubba, you have always been thoughtful and kind, thank you! I have already used it and love it! It is the perfect size to carry with me on over night trips and it will definitely be my go to bag now. It makes me smile each time I see it and it already has some Abby hair on it because she thought it would be a good idea to sit on it when I had it on the floor. The moral of that story is to stop placing items on the floor when they belong on a shelf, put away… 

January 5, 2007

This is the day that I quit smoking and it was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made. That is not to say that those of you that smoke should quit. I am not one to preach about bad habits that I once had. Hell, both of my parents smoked, and I picked it up late into my 20’s for just a couple of years. So, smart, I am not, but this is a day that I always remember because for me quitting was more than just letting go of a bad habit, and it was not easy, but I am glad to not be a smoker today. 

Manatee’s, Roo’s and Elephants Make the World a Better Place

My biggest obsession would be elephants, but I have always had a love of manatee’s and kangaroo’s, as well. Manatee’s are just sweet, adorable and they are the only species that are safer in captivity than any other animal. Kangaroo’s fascinated me as a child because they hop and skip along with not a care in the world. Elephant’s need no explanation here…

Last year, for my first Christmas as a single person, Cliff sent me a box of ornaments that he had specifically made for me. Unfortunately, they did not arrive in time to adorn my tree, but this year they played center stage. We had a very simple tree with just a few bulbs, which is what I wanted, and the ornaments I had from Cliff added a special touch to a very happy holiday. Thank you, Cliff for your kindness, and, of course, your thoughtfulness. Although, they did not make it last year, they will definitely play a role in my holidays from here on out. 

New Year, New Plans

There was a time when a new year always gave me a renewed sense of change and ideas, but I have sense realized that it does not need to be a specific date to make a change. Resolutions are good to be made, but only if it is something that you are ready to fulfill, or else they will be broken shortly after they are set. For me I think that it is healthy to maintain goals and to make them throughout the year, so no New Years Resolutions for me. What about for you?

Scarce Week on Cam

I am taking some time off to give myself a break from cam and with this being the start of the new year, I think this is the perfect week for that.

I will be online tomorrow (Monday), Friday and Saturday. You will not find me on Tuesday-Wednesday.

Tuesday we are going to take Abby on another day long hike and then Wednesday we are going to drive to Twin Falls and create new content for my site, coming home Thursday. This will be Abby’s first time home alone and I am a little bit worried but also dreading the separation. I know it might sound ridiculous to some, but she has been by my side for 3 months and she is my constant shadow. I am more concerned for her, than me, because she won’t know that it is temporary and we will be home Thursday evening. Thankfully we have someone that is going to let her out of her kennel in the morning and she will be hugged, loved and fed. However, that won’t last all day, but just enough time to feed her and let her outside where she will stay all day, before being fed at dinner time and then put back in her kennel at bedtime.

We will also be stopping by the PO Box to pick up several packages and to mail 4 orders of panties. If you would like a pair, you still have time but you need to email me ASAP – angel@lonestarangel.com

Bring in the New Year with Me!

I will be online during the changing of the year, so if you find yourself alone and wanting some company, you are welcome to join me for a fun chat. To bring in the new year for those in the EST zone, I will be on #VNALive doing my weekly member’s cam show (which starts at 11p EST). I will stay on for 10 minutes past midnight EST so that we can give a proper salute to those who move into 2019, while the rest of us are stuck in transition. You have to be a member of mine (thelonestarangel.com) or one of the VNA ladies to have FREE access to this hour. Unfortunately, I cannot give out a hall pass for this hour chat because membership is a requirement for that privilege.

After that I will be bringing in the new year for all other time zones on Streamate. You have to have an account, but it is FREE to join and visit me in the public chat room. If you do not have an account, please use my link (lonestarangel.cammodels.com) for access. Anyone is welcome to join me for the NYE countdown, but the public chat room is just that, a chat room. So, join in the chat, do not just sit and lurk. It is a fun group of people (both men and women) and the conversations range from animals, to cooking, to weekend stories of grandeur and anything in between. If you want to talk about your dick, or anything sex related, you are welcome to take me into a private session.

I am on PST and will finish the night bringing in the new year with those of you that are also on the west coast. As long as I have chatters in my room specifically for NYE, I will stay online until a little past midnight PST.

Mountain Hikes

We take Abigail on hikes a couple times a week, and it has been great exercise for her, and for us. Most of the time Abby and I stay close to the truck while MtnMan hikes up steep mountains and around rock ledges but she loves to run, play in the snow, toss the stick (herself) and chase her tail. By the time we are heading home she is crashed out in the back seat, which is 100% her domain and Duckie is always quick to curl up with her.

When we get home our routine is to get her fed, brush her coat and then shower her clean again. She is not a big fan of the latter, but she loves eating and getting her hair combed. After she is showered, it is my turn and then we eat dinner while Abby curls up in her spot and sleeps. She usually is ready for her kennel when we are finished cleaning up the kitchen.

A Book, A Plethora of Socks and a Negligee

That sounds like a kinky party, and one that I am looking forward to attending! Nicster, thank you for always being generous and thoughtful in your gifts. Your book arrived at a great time because I am in between books and I have been wanting to read “Murder at Fenway Park”. I love fiction based on non-fiction because it is a story that pulls you in and shares history with you at the same time. The socks are a bundle of ankle socks that are more argyles and if you know me at all you know that I am over the moon excited about that! The lingerie is sexy and definitely my style of black and white. Thank you! 

Pogonip [pog-uh-nip]

noun

  1. an ice fog that forms in the mountain valleys of the western U.S.

I absolutely love nature; it is awe inspiring, to say the least. There is not a weather pattern that does not fascinate me, except for droughts. Living in the northern part of Nevada has provided all kinds of new weather phenomenons, such as pogonip (pog-uh-nip). It is beautiful! A few weeks ago we had temps dip down into the single digits, with a few nights of negative degrees and along with it came a lot of heavy fog.

This valley was covered in pogonip and it truly looking like a winter wonderland of beauty.
This is pogonip on our fence line at the house.
A closer look at the pogonip on our fence at the house.

Trail Mix and Smoked Pork

Red,

I don’t know that you read my blog, but in the event that you do, thank you so much for your thoughtful care package. I am a snacker, hence “The Snack Locker”, and your package definitely kept me snacking for a bit. You took the time to make both the chex mix and the smoked pork, and that means so much more than you probably realize. You are thoughtful and generous with your time. Thank you!

A White Christmas

I have always dreamed of a white Christmas. It is beautiful and so clean, and what a perfect way to spend the holiday. However, living in Texas made that more of an impossibility than just a slim chance. If we had snow, it was usually in January and February, not as early as December. One year I spent the holiday with my oldest brother and his family in Kansas City, MO. That year they had no snow in December. None. Not even a dusting. It was the first year in something like 50 years, according to the weathermen. A couple of years later I woke up to news that all of Texas had snow, even the border towns and parts of Mexico as far south as Nuevo Laredo and kids were out playing in snow for the first time in their lives. The news also said that there was only a small part of the state that did not wake up to a white Christmas. I happened to be in the small radius of bad luck. Then last year I spent my first holiday in northern Nevada and they always have a lot of snow in November and December, so it was a sure bet that my first year would also fulfill my dream. NOPE. That was the first year in decades that they had very little snow accumulation and none for Christmas. I really was the white Christmas jinx. lol. When I woke up yesterday and the ground was covered in a beautiful dusting of snow, I was so happy! We had probably about 2 inches and it continued to snow throughout the day. It just added to the perfect holiday season. I finally broke the curse! Or, should I assume the universe was on my side and gave me snow? Either way, it was a beautiful sight!

Pickles!

I love all kinds of pickles. Sweet pickles. Sour pickles. Tart pickles. Pickles. All kinds of pickles! 

Fuzzy Slippers are Good For the Soles!

I had a surprise package show up to my front door awhile back and it was from MtnMan, which  happens to also be his front door. But, that is besides the point, this package was for me and inside was a pair of nice, fuzzy slippers that could be worn in public, but I choose to treat them as house slippers and they do my feet good! Sometimes I even wear them outside when I give Abby her daily brushing and they keep my feet warm when it is snowing! That was way more information than any of you needed, or probably even wanted, but seriously, these slippers are good for the soles! Thank you, Beebs!

Home Cook

I never knew I would find joy in cooking, but here I am, cooking and always looking for new recipes and different foods to try. Last month I received a new cookbook, thanks to Michael, and I cannot wait to try my hand at some non-crockpot dishes. With that said, I wonder if some of the casseroles and oven bakes would turn out in the slow cooker. I have yet to put any of the recipe’s from this cookbook to the test though because I find myself busy right now, with not much time to spend in the kitchen.

Michael, thank you so much for being so thoughtful and generous in sending a cookbook; one that I was about to buy myself. I appreciate you  more than you realize.

 

Happy Holidays

Okay, bare with me, please. I never thought I would be anything short of a grinch. It was not that I didn’t want you all to enjoy your holidays, but I didn’t see what the big hub bub was all about. And, in reality, I still don’t, but I do appreciate the simple things, such as putting up a tree. We even have a wreath for our door, thanks to Dawn Marie! That will be as much decorating that will get done at our house, but I am actually looking forward to going to cut down a tree on Saturday. It is something that we could have easily blown off, but I think it will be sweet to see Abby staring at the lights and hopefully not trying to eat the branches of pine needles, or step through the sticky sap that drips all over the skirt. Either way, I am not the grinch I once was, but I also feel that the change in my #newbeginnings deserves some holiday cheer. With that said, I live with a grinch now, and I am okay with that. He lost his scrooge and I gained one. I am embracing that with much love! lol. 

Also, I am still not big on holiday songs, or christmas lights before December 1st. So, keep that in mind. Thank you. 

 

Argyles, Argyles, Argyles . . .

. . . is there such a thing as too many argyles? The answer is no, no there is not! There is just something about argyles that make my toes happy! So, needless to say, I was quite excited to open a surprise package from Bubba to find over-the-knee argyles!!! They have a splash of red, which makes them different than all of my other pairs of diamond patterned socks! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now the problem I have is trying not to wear them once a week because as soon as they are washed and back in the drawer, I am wanting to slip into them for a happy day spent in argyles garb!
