“Nobody deserves your tears, but whoever deserves them will not make you cry.” – Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Fact of the Week

Crows recognize faces and warn other crows about dangerous faces. They never forget you if you've messed with them.

Joke of the Week

This duck walks into a bar, and asks the bartender, “Do you have any grapes"?
The bartender says, "No we only sell beer here".
The duck leaves. The next day the duck walks back into the bar and asks the bartender, "Do you have any grapes"?
The bartender says, "No I told you we only sell beer, and if you ask me again I’m going to nail your beak to the bar.”
So the duck leaves. The next day the duck walks back into the bar, and asks the bartender “Do you have any nails"?
The bartender says "no". The duck asks “Do you have any grapes"?

Mother's Day 2017

Happy Mother's Day to me! I got a bad case of vertigo the Friday and Saturday before. Terry busted his ass for me. He took care of me Saturday, then made my day really special on Sunday. He and the boys detailed my car. It was kind of comical to watch him try to maneuver in my tiny little bubble of a car.
Gizmo was doing his part too. Don't want those floor mats to run away, now do we?
These are the flowers that Terry gave me. Two bouquets, and I arranged them together. He was upset because they were beginning to die. They smelled WONDERFUL though and I loved the colors!
He also got me a new coffee tumbler. Can't have too many of those!
I made him pose with me! 
Alex gave me flowers too!

Ashley did as well!

Brendon didn't want to be left out!
They know I like flowers!
Tim usually makes me a card. I wondered if I was going to get one this year and when he will think he is "too old" to give his mama a home made card.
It made me cry! 
I received a lovely card from Steven and Peama too.
It came with a Benjamin! :)
I had a WONDERFUL day, one of the best in a long time. I got to see all of my kids, and we ended up spending patio time and lovely weather with Brett and Gina too. Too bad it was a school night!
Happy Mother's Day!

Halloween 2016

Dave and Lisa's house always looks so good!












I bought this pretty Halloween bouquet
Karl! He won Best Men's Costume. It was pretty hilarious to see him running around in that costume!
Just some of the gang posing! Mika up front won Best Women's Costume, Kristina was Garth and she and Katie (who was Wayne) won Best Group Costume. Tiffany was a bee, Barry was Cash Money! and I was a chicken!
Halloween was fun, as usual. This is the first year that I didn't have a child that dressed up! So sad! At least Topher came to trick or treat with Tate and Brynley :)
