Hot Rod Sings

Posted on: May 10, 2012        In: Life and Love        With: 2 comments
Last night was the first of two nights of the Brentfield Elementary Talent Show 2012.  Sweet Mother of Pearl, there is wonderful talent in this school – singers, dancers, hula hoopers, piano players, a violinist, an artist, three young girls doing karate that were beyond amazing (broke boards).   It was unbelievable how poised all […]

I tell this story often, and most of my friends have heard it more than once.  Okay, they have heard this story MANY times, but it never ceases to amaze me. Several years ago we were at Calloway’s nursery looking for something.  (I really can’t remember what, and it is not important to this story.) […]

In passing I had heard the buzz about a hot new book – something about Shades of Gray.  It seemed to be THE topic.  They mentioned it on Good Morning America, and maybe The View. I really didn’t listen to the conversations, but just heard them mention the book.   Friend BB had also said […]

Just had to share this.  Hot Rod, my grandson, was the only child here on Easter.  He wanted to eat and then hunt eggs.    While we were eating, the rains began, and we thought they would never stop.  Here is the results. Basket in one hand, umbrella in the other hand, and then put […]

Just Wondering

Photo credit: AP | A vehicle sits toppled over in front of tornado-damaged homes in Forney, Texas. (April 3, 2012) Just wondering? I like to thank that Jesus never criticized doubters.  “Come Thomas, put your hand in my scars.”  But, He was hard on those who thought they had all the answers.  This being said, […]

Alert!  Our beloved Bluebonnets are in danger. Yes, the cherished Bluebonnet, our Texas State Flower  is being crowded out by the invasive B****** Cabbage.  Here is the report from kxan in Austin.  How pretty the fields look covered with yellow blooms, until you realize that this plant is taking over.  The tap roots are hard […]

Nana

We celebrated the life of Nana (Phyllis Albers) this past Saturday.  Nana didn’t like funerals, and avoided going to funerals.  Sometime ago she told Cathy her daughter that she had arranged to be cremated, and that the Deli Depot was to cater a reception after a memorial service.  As per her wishes, we had a […]

Favorite Hymns

Love this book, Then Sings My Soul by Robert J. Morgan.  There are several others in the series.  I bought this book for Mother.  She liked it so much that she bought one for Aunt Lois.  It tells the back-stories of great hymns.  Good Reading! I thought of this book a few weeks ago when […]

First Blog

Sort of like: First day of  first grade – Mother told me she saw me in front of the mirror exclaiming, “Won’t I be marvelous”. First date – (to Love Me Tender with Thorp Woods) memorable. First kiss -with Beau somebody, who I think kissed me just to be kind.  (Now first kiss with Ever-Lovin’ […]
