Happy Saturday...sorta!

I say sorta because my Uncle passed away yesterday. So, in that respect it's a sad Saturday. He's leaving behind 3 grandchildren and a whole slew of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

My Aunt is heart broken. I would be too, they've been together over 50 years.

Otherwise, it's absolutely gorgeous today.

I see the neighbor across the street is barbecuing -- probably ribs and chicken. Doesn't the thought make your mouth water -- does mine.

The other neighbor on the left has let the puppies out with their Mom. Man, have they grown and are just adorable. I guess they couldn't get them all sold. I think they were asking a bit much for dogs with no papers. But hey, what do I know.

My son's phone was due for its upgrade from Verizon. It's a pretty good deal: a $400.00 phone for a little over $100.00.

I'm the one who should have that  phone NOT  him. See, this is what happens when you spoil them young -- they never grow out of it.

Yes, I have a spoiled brat-man on my hands and I'm dearly, paying for it. There's no one to blame but myself now, is there.

The most important advice I can give to parents of young children -- learn how to use that dreaded one syllable word N-O. Just say it, it's easy... NO! You won't regret.

Well...breakfast is over, my sugar is good and...the Cardinals are swooping around the flowerless hydrenga bush -- what's new with you?



  1. Thank you for sharing your day!!! :) Happy Saturday - but also, my condolences about your Uncle....

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by.
