Family Get Together

My son Cory and his wife are in from California. They have not been back home for 3 yrs. So my mom wanted to do a get together and my sis in law was open for us doing it at their home. Lori you are a jewel. With that said this is my daughter Amber and my son Cory. A few jokes and laughs between brother and sister. I wanted my daughter in law, Britney in some pics but while she jumped in and ready to have her pic made the other two decided to be funny. Now I know this last pic looks strange, no Cory did not have an itch, he was holding his bad habit out of the pic, not realize I could cut it out... Smoking....bad habit. After lunch ice cream making came into play. My oldest brother Ray starting the churning for the ice cream. This is a pic of Cory's turn. LOL This is about as serious as it gets. Of course I had to get a pic of my grandson Caleb doing his part. My great nephew, Cole givi

Rocks and Cashstrong

A couple of years ago I started picking up rocks when I traveled. Its an easy thing to pack and carry home plus I don't have a lot of things just sitting around. I bring my rocks home and I paint the location of where it came from, seal it really well and put it out in my garden. Susie Q, as she is known is the cousin of one of my best friends. Susie saw my rocks on facebook and wanted one for Memphis where she has been spending a lot of time lately. is Susie Q's rock for her garden. Susie Q has been staying in Memphis with her daughter, daughters husband and Susie's grandson, Charlie Cash. So I wanted to send another rock for Katie, Susie's daughter. You see Cash is fighting cancer. He is a cutie and he is 2 yrs old. Cash will be starting round 3 of chemo this coming week. Cash's favorite song is I Won't Back Down.. He has had people from all over the US record

Vodka to Ghost

Good Afternoon Folks! My mind is racing right along on things that I want to do in the house and around the house and for crafts to make... Some days I can't seem to turn it off. Months ago a friend gave me a couple of Vodka bottles and I could not decide what to do with them. Thought I would make a vase with each but when I spray painted this one white it hit me what I wanted to do to it. Now to locate a back taper candle! What do you think?  Thanks for stopping in,

My Friday

Good Sunday Morning. I see a little sunshine this morning. Yesterday was a rainy day and when I say rainy, I mean it was raining cats and dogs. Speaking of dogs, say good morning to Dakota, AKA The King. My best bud. Last week was a busy week for me but I am only electing to tell you about Friday. Morning consist of waking at 5:30, shower, dress and makeup. Makeup is not something I do often since I retired but I was meeting up with some folks later. Why get up so early since I am retired. My grandson is staying with me right now and it requires me getting him to school. Meet Caleb. Handsome huh? Anyway, him and his mom are moving to another county but they are waiting on a place to be ready. Hence the reason he is with me. It's a 45 min. drive to school. Drop him off, drive back which takes an hour since I am heading the same way morning traffic is going. Run and drop the The King of

More Pics from my Back Roads Ride Around

I love to take pictures. I love to make those memories. I love to see the beauty in them. I love to find something cool. And I love to share them. If you were to ever visit my facebook page you would see that I have lots of pics posted. I actually have an album for just churches. I found this little gem on my ride around the other day. Spring Creek Presbyterian Church, est. in 1801. I love to just set out and drive, take roads I have never been on and try to get lost! That is when I find some really neat things. Tater Peeler Rd. Sounds like they are running out of names! Or how about Stumpy? LOL My next album on fb will consist of unusual named street signs. I ask my friends on fb to play along by finding those street signs, posting and tagging me in them. I then put them in the album listing who sent it to me. Others love to play along. Had to stop on the road to let these ladies walk ac

Personality Shown in Mailboxes

It's all an art to me! I am always looking around as I drive....looking to see if there is something cute to shoot. Mailboxes being one item I am looking for. I started this in 2009 and I have an amazing album on my fb page for mailboxes! Just check out a few.. This first one is pretty cool. Had to pull into the driveway to get the side view of this. This next one is in the town next to where I live. Donelson TN. Paris anyone? LOL this one is in my hood! Couple streets over. Check out the tongue. On my lunch break when I worked across town I would ride around checking out things. Found several "different" mailboxes on that side of town. This one was covered with bottle caps. LOL....and this one is dressed for Christmas. Okay so folks in my hood to it up right. Just a few streets away. Watertown, about a 30 minute drive from my home. To cute. Go get the basketball
