Why is it that Lil Bro has all the privileges????? But I know a big day is coming!
And then just GUESS who arrived!!!!!! My 3 Favorite Boys in the whole wide word! Rowdy, Precious and Little Bitty all dressed in their Bible School shirts:) Aren't we handsome?
First thing they did is they all went swimming.. WHICH I might interject, I think is wrong.. WRONG WRONG WRONG.. you don't let babies in that big scary pool. I do not like it I do not like it one little bitty bit!
Mom thinks I'm funny cuz I guard them but it's my job!
Good Ole Dad cooked us hamburgers and hot dogs! and then all my Peeps..Sister Tina and her little boys, brother Daniel and his Kat and of course Little Bitty all ate!
Little Bitty knows how to BURP.. I mean BURP with a capital RRRRRRRRUP.. Precious thinks it's so funny that he just nearly turns inside out~ Mom's sorry if you can't get the video, but it's SO worth it if you can :)
Mom almost let him fall thru the cracks he was laughing so hard!
911 911~~~~~~~~~ MOM JUMPED UP AND HOLLERED and we were right on it. You just won't believe what happened, right in the middle of LUNCH !
uhhhhhhh hey humans! we need HELP~
I think Bill could ESCAPE.. Come on Brother Daniel, Come on Dad.. oh never mind, Bitty and Rowdy are right on it :)
Hmmmmmm Me Penny the Wonderdog and a Chain saw.. Just thinkin~
No I forgot Little Bitty is really in charge ~
So they all come back and Dear Ole Dad, Rowdy and Bitty all take a swim....oh and Annoying too, I think Mom has avoided all "Cute" pictures of her and her new float.(I could just spit)
Hmmmmmmmmm Dad's not around................ no one is paying any attention:) uhhhhh why are these hamburgers and hot dogs just laying there???????????
Now does life get better then this??????
But just when I turn my back, they have let that BABY go swimming and he's in that great big pool all alone. Mom did not like it one bit, no she did not!
The end of a very very good day.
I love my little boys..I wish they could live with me~

I was trying to think of what I was most thankful for this week and while sitting outside late last night I thought ahhhhhhhhhhh this is about as close to heaven as I can get tonight. I just love it in Tennessee in the summer as the sunsets and the moon rises.
I love the warm humid air, I love the sweet smell of honeysuckles, I love the sound of tree frogs and the Cicadas! I thought last summer we were suppose to get the cicada's and was disappointed that my little nephew didn't get to see them but they have arrived! They are so loud it's almost piercing but I love it.
If we sit on the deck in back we can see the moon and stars like they are right there to pick and a full moon lights up all the way over past the horse pasture. It's just breathtaking.
We spend a lot of time sitting mostly on the front porch because it's cooler and we can keep up with our neighbors. I have a swing with a long pillow and two small pillows and a shrub that's growing up from the flowers, so I'm really unseen by the ordinary traffic. I lay there and my saint and I talk and listen and laugh.
And yes I love the storms.. Please don't hate me! I don't like the wind, not any season of the year(with the exception of a very hot summer afternoon) But I love the thunder and lightening and the "gully washing rain". It is exciting to me and afterwards it's all so sweet and fresh. A year or so ago lightening struck the tree next to our garage and wiped out our TV and my router. That was a bit of a bummer but we did get a nice big flat screen tv out of it:) thank goodness for Home Owners insurance. and I am aware that lightening is dangerous but I dare say not any more dangerous then when I drive across the county and back!
I do have one funny story about the storm the other night. We have a frog that sings to us every night when we sit out there and after the storm he sounded like a teenage boy whose voice had changed! I think he must have got a jolt or something from the lightening :) I'm going to attach a little video of the storm the other night. It doesn't do it justice but we thought it was fun, UNTIL we didn't have power for most of the night and most of the next day!
So any way I love and am thankful for our Sweet Southern Nights...

Some people say they would not change anything in their life if they could go back.. That always amazes me! Man I would change almost EVERYTHING.. I'd be so perfect no one could stand me :) And I'd probably have a lot more fun and self confidence.
One think I would never EVER change is spending the last few years of my mother's life with her. To me it was a precious gift. If any of you ever have that opportunity, embrace it because it's a gift you will treasure. Also I'm so grateful for every time I went out of my way to visit my Uncle when we traveled back to Washington. Some times it wasn't convenient and some times I left feeling not so good but looking back, I'm glad I went. And I never missed a time, not once in the nearly 50 years I've lived away. That I would not change. I've always loved him dearly.

Rowdy and Precious came to see Mom and Dad while sister Tina had a tooth fixed!
Precious entertained Mom by rolling on the floor and playing with Elmo! They make each other laugh:)
Rowdy and dear old Dad planted tomatoes, picked berries and painted!
Mom had a very good day~
This is how Mom and Dad spend evenings.....I do NOT LIKE THE POOL..you can see the bottom.. I don't like that~This sort of video just makes me want to spit again!
