Memorial Day

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service

Please remember those who served and those who are serving.  Freedom isn’t free.  Thank you to my Daddy for his service.  Thank you to all service men and women.  May God Bless you this day.



It’s official!  My baby has entered the world of PRE-TEEN.  She graduated today from the 5th grade.  She will be starting the 6th grade at the middle school next fall.  Where did my baby go?   She is right here.  I love her.

Hump Day


This here is my brother, my son and my nephew in-law.  I like to call them the 3 stooges.   “That’s all I got to say about that.” (Forrest Gump)

This is my son’s newest car.   He has to fold himself like an accordian to drive it.  He is a wheeler n dealer – this makes about the 6th or 7th car he has titled since he got his license last year.   I love him.    The END.

Howdy Y’all!
