July is wrapping up nicely – weather wise and otherwise. Hard to fathom how fast this month has gone by – only a little over a month before the kids start school again! I can’t wait.

I’m sure you’ve heard by now about the whole Tim McGraw altercation at one of his concerts last week – an overzealous fan grabbed at him and actually ripped his jeans. Granted, his jeans were already in that mode with holes at the knees – you know, ‘fashionable’. Ahem.


Here, check out this video to see what transpired:

Crazy, right? I don’t know if you noticed, but she was further back along the side of that stage smacking his butt, then grabbed at him.

At :03 to :05 she’s smacking at his butt, then she moves back in the frame around :17 and starts swatting at him again at :20 (looks like she almost hit him in his prize package area to me), then he squats down while singing the end of the line right at her, but stands back up to keep moving – that’s when she reaches out and grabs his jeans firmly and rips them.

If you noticed, when she had hold of his jeans he almost took a tumble, too. Luckily he kept his balance – but in a reactionary move, he reached over and smacked her on the side of her head. She was promptly removed by security.

Go Tim.

Seriously, I would have done the same thing if I were in his shoes. Like a knee-jerk reaction or like swatting at an annoying fly. While I don’t condone men hitting women (or women hitting men) (or anyone hitting anyone), I still think he shouldn’t be in hot water over that swat.

Even the police are on his side, but apparently that crazy overzealous fan has retained a lawyer. Because she wants an apology  from Tim.


She only  wants an apology? Sure  she does (said in the best sarcastic tone possible).

She’s upset that she is getting a bad name from the incident. She is said to be embarrassed and upset and feels that the singer is blaming her.

Hello?  There hasn’t been any statement from Tim McGraw blaming her for anything – all he’s said about the ‘unfortunate incident’ is exactly that:

“Sometimes things can lose context and perspective. I reacted in an instinctive, defensive way from my perspective of what was going on. I think it was an unfortunate situation, I think all the way around. But it happened, it happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on. It is one of those things that happen, nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it. You are in that position, you are out there, you are vulnerable, things happen and sometimes you react. There’s nothing to be said about it.”

Where in that statement is he blaming her? And besides, if a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a video worth?

Something to ponder.

So many people are out to get their 15 minutes of fame – wonder if she hopes this is her chance. If she does come up with a monetary amount for ‘damages’, here’s hoping he counter-sues her for the cost of his jeans, because you know those aren’t cheap. Even with all the pre-made holes. It’s not like he or his stylist went and bought those off the rack at Walmart.

Some people’s kids.

Speaking of some people’s kids… I’ve seen these before but never bought any because I thought the price was a little steep for what they are. Only I ran across a great deal for a pair this weekend, so naturally I ordered two pair:


They’re called “Mommy’s Sippy Cup”. Perfect! These are going to be perfect for picnics or going to the beach or camping – plus you can fill the bottom part with water and freeze it to keep your wine cool while drinking, or I’m sure you can fill that part with crushed ice for longer-lasting chill.  I’ll let you know how they work out once they get here.

Speaking of chill… Princess Nagger was excited when she saw I also ordered this for the kitties:


Oh yeah.  The cats are going to have some awesome hanging out space for sure. That sucker is about six feet tall, so that will make Blackspot and #Squeak very happy, since they both try to find the highest perch to look down on us two-leggers with disdain. I’ll definitely let you know how that works out, too.

Speaking of cats… This was floating around on Facebook last week, and it cracked me up – also the reason for buying a kitty condo for Princess Nagger’s room, so the cats will stay up there and not bother my stuff downstairs. Of course I don’t have plants and things set up in front of windows, since that’s absolutely inviting trouble like this:

  1. Hilarious Stacy! How have you been? I’ve been away way too long! I’ve got a new blog now. Hope you’ll come and visit. simonedankenbring.com

  2. This is the first I’ve heard of the Tim McGraw incident. That lady was clearly out of line. Although I do not think anyone should be violent towards another individual, it’s clear that it was a knee-jerk reaction from Tim. And really, the girl kinda deserves to be slapped again by someone for her stupidity in wanting to further the problem.
    My cat doesn’t like scratching posts. That one your ordered is pretty cool though.

  3. First time linking up! I think I’m going to like this! Love the kitty city you bought! And I think I’ve seen those adult sippy cups somewhere before. Those would be handy! Have a great day!

  4. I’m not a fan of country music, but the thought that that woman has actually retained a lawyer and is demanding an apology is absurd. What a twit! I supposed if she wanted her 15 minutes of fame, she got it – no one promised it would be to her benefit!

  5. There is just no fixing stupid, as that woman demonstrates.

    I would love to get a cat city like that–but my cat would look at it then me and be all–what are you thinking woman?!

    The mom’s sippy cup is genius–but maybe in a solid outside color–the better to disguise what is being consumed…

  6. I had been avoiding whatever happened with Tim McGraw because I didn’t want to read anything bad about him, but it sounds like he wasn’t in the wrong. I knew I liked him! I also love the cat “mansion” you bought!

  7. Thank you for the link up & visiting me
    Your blog is great!
    Have a great week!
    All the best, Mimi

  8. I don’t blame Tim for his reaction one single bit. This should NOT see the light of day in court, but if does I hope the judge dismisses the case without aforethought. Crazy, crazy woman! Yeah, if you (crazy woman) are reading this, then you deserve the bashing.

  9. I didn’t see that about Tim at all.
    I agree it was like swatting at an annoying insect. She was all over him. Come on! Get a grip!

    You can tell it was reactionary. And of course I don’t condone hitting of women, but come on! He almost fell!

    That is an interesting cup/mug 🙂

    OMG my kittens would love me!!!! I wish I could afford one of those. I look at them all the time 🙂

    Happy Thursday!

  10. I did hear and see all the commotion regarding this incident. If someone keeps coming at you over and over I think you have a right to protect yourself and why didn’t security step in sooner?

    Did you ever get that kitty condo upstairs? That thing is huge! I’m sure your cats will love it.
