A moment in time ….


A time to remember those who are gone but not forgotten.

A time to be thankful for all that you have and all that will come.

A time to cherish memories and look forward to making new ones.

A time to live. A time to love.  A time to laugh.

Most of all, laugh. For it is the laughter that will lighten your life and strengthen your love.

May 2015 bring you all that you could ever hope for and much much more.


The End ….


My birthday week started with a family dinner
last week at Toby Keith’s.


Then moved on to NOLA with my girlfriend for a weekend of …
well even if I could remember I’d never tell.

And today had an awesome lunch with my wonderful husband
and red velvet cake and icecream tonight. YUMMY!

Oh yeah, after being legal for almost a year,
my husband bought me this little cutie for my birthday!


Getting old isn’t so bad!

Wordless Wednesday


Ho! Ho! Ho!


My latest creation! Merry Christmas!

November 3, 1967


Forty-six years ago today
You were a baby, a little boy
I’m sure you were a sweetie
Who brought lots of hugs and joy

You’ve touched alot of people
With your smile and your wit
Son, brother, husband, father
Our hearts you’ve surely lit

Now you cannot tease me
About being so much older
Age is not about birthdays
It’s in the eye of the beholder

I see you through my eyes
Each day you’re better looking
You’re strong and hot and sexy
And it is not from my cooking

You were such a little cutie
And I’m thankful everyday
That you are my husband
As we both grow old and gray

Happy Birthday Babe
May you have an awesome year
Don’t worry, I’ll always be older
But your just as old, Dear.

I love you.

Happy Halloween Matey


I wanted her to be Minnie Mouse.
She had a mind of her own.

Gotta love her!

The Witch is Dead

Oz3I know for a fact that I am not the only person who has not seen The Wizard of Oz.    This movie sat in my DVR folder for several
months before I finally deleted it without having watched it. When we saw the commercial on TV that it was coming to the theatre in 3D, we knew it was the perfect date night movie. After 46 years, I am sad to say that I did not watch it sooner.   But I am glad I got to see it on the big screen and with such good company!

I was surprised at all of the famous lines from the movie that I knew:

I’ll get you my pretty

Ding dong the witch is dead

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

“A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others”

“Now I know I have a heart, because it is breaking”

And of course, “There’s no place like home”  Indeed.

Oz 2



Are you ready …

2013-09-20 20.47.08 … for some football?  We are.

Seems like only a few months ago I was painting my nails purple, donning my Ravens t-shirt and drinking wine from my handmade “Go Ravens” wine glass, cheering on the Ravens to win the Super Bowl.  And that they did!   It’s not that I didn’t like the 49ers, its just that everyone else did.  Besides, I look better in purple than I do in red.

Today is a different day.  A different game.  A different wish.   I know the Ravens will be tough, but let’s face it, they are not the same team that won the Super Bowl.  They have managed to dismantle their team and we have managed to build a stronger one.

Good luck to you Super Bowl Champs trying to take these bulls by the horn!

May the best team win! And that’s no Bull.

Texans Pick 6

The Game Highlights: Cushing Pick 6 – six words to define our future!

Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing dives and intercepted San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and then runs the ball in 18 yards for the touchdown, it seems only fitting that I post this video in response to today’s Daily Prompt to honor the number six.   Way to go boys!
