The past couple of months have been super busy.  I know that everyone is.  I don’t think I’m special. Ha!  Sometimes we get so busy we don’t seem to slow down and smell the roses very often, soooo…..stop for a minute and take a deep breath and smell this beautiful yellow rose. 


This is one of the flowers in a beautiful spring bouquet that my husband bought for me a few weeks ago.


Well, here it is.  Beautiful isn’t it?

Have a Great Day!  Try to stay cool.  Blessings!

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU ARE OLD AND DON’T MOVE FAST ANYMORE . . . George Phillips, an elderly man from Meridan, MS was going up to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked “Is someone in your house?” He said, “No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.”Then the dispatcher said, “All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available.” George said, “Okay.” He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again. “Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now, because I just shot them,” and he hung up. Within five minutes, six police cars, a SWAT team, helicopter, two fire trucks, a paramedic and ambulance showed up at the Phillips’ residence, and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the policemen said to George, “I thought you said that you’d shot them. George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

True story . . . . I LOVE IT.

Don’t mess with old people.

Dog Praying

A Dog’s Prayer

Dear God: When we get to heaven, can we sit on your couch? Or is it still the same old story?

Dear God: Why are there cars named after the jaguar, the cougar, the mustang, the colt, the stingray, and the rabbit, but not ONE named for a dog? How often do you see a cougar riding around? We do love a nice ride! Would it be so hard to rename the “Chrysler Eagle” the ” Chrysler Beagle”?

Dear God: If a dog barks his head off in the forest and no human hears him, is he still a bad dog?

Dear God: We dogs can understand human verbal instructions, hand signals, whistles, horns, clickers, beepers, scent ID’s, electromagnetic energy fields, and Frisbee flight paths. What do humans understand?

Dear God: More meatballs, less spaghetti, please.

Dear God: Are there mailmen in Heaven? If there are, will I have to apologize?

Dear God: Let me give you a list of just some of the things I must remember to be a good dog.

1 . I will not eat the cats’ food before they eat it or after they throw it up.

2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.

3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.

4. The sofa is not a ‘face towel’.

5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.

6. Sticking my nose into someone’s backside is an unacceptable way of saying hello”.

7. I don’t need to suddenly stand straight up when I’m under the coffeetable.

8. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the house – not after.

9. I will not come in from outside and immediately drag my bottom.

10. The cat is not a ‘squeaky toy’ so when I play with him and he makes that noise, it’s usually not a good thing.

Nathan, Nathaniel and I went up to Dodge Ridge to ski today.  We made a quick stop in Modesto on Monday Night to get some equipment and have dinner with our friends, Randy and Sharon Keyes.  Caught a couple of winks at the hotel and then up the mountain we went.  What an absolutely gorgeous day.  I didn’t even have to wear a neck warmer or ear muffs.  It was about 43 degrees and the sun was shining brightly.  This was our first run in a couple of years so we had a blast. 🙂  I hope to have more pics later.  The rest was taken on Nathaniel’s phone, so we will see if we can transfer them to here. 🙂

Tuesday Night, December 16th, 2008 @ 6:30 p.m. the guests began to arrive at the home of Ron and Margie Abbott (Tulare, California).  Ministers and their wives from the San Diego area all the way up to the Sacramento and Bay Area came together for a great time of fun, food and fellowship.  What a great time we all had.  We ate and talked and talked and talked.  And laughed, and laughed some more.  Played a couple of crazy games together, thanks to Mickey Grogan.  We heard some very good “stories” from Gary Harding and Bill Parkey.  🙂  The meal was superb with salad, roast beef (bear meat), vegetables, chili beans that were awesome and the many desserts of which I tried to stay away from ( but I did taste the fudge).  🙂  Mmmm….good.  Then to top the evening off, Bobbie (Shoemake) sat down at the piano and we all gathered ’round to sing some Christmas Carols under the “direction” of Bill Parkey.  A great big shout out to Ron and Margie for their hospitality in opening their beautiful home to all of us.  We had a great time. 🙂  Merry Christmas!

If you still live in a house you may need to buy extra candy this year for those little ones who come by your place and say, “trick or treat”.  🙂
