Clippers on a 2X4

As many of you know,
my husband is VERY creative.
I have learned through the years
to appreciate his ingenuity.
Right now, he is in a cast on his left hand for
a ruptured ligament which makes it very hard
for him to clip his fingernails.
When I am in town, I serve as his nail
technician, but when I am traveling,
he has had to come up with an alternate method
of clipping his nails.
Introducing the Clippers on a 2X4.
Do you think he should market this?
Maybe we could make a million.
Gotta love being married to a smart man!!!

Friends are Friends Forever

Many years ago, Michael W. Smith sang the classic
Friends are Friends Forever.

That is so true of my sweet friend
LaJuana Case Gill.
We have known each other since high school, and
often go for long periods of time without seeing
each other. But when we get back together, as we
did when LaJuana spoke at our recent Ladies Retreat,
it's as if time has stood still.
I also love the way she is now friends with my extended family.
This photo is her visiting with my favorite son-in-law, Adrian.

I love you precious friend.

Blogging From The Sky

These pictures are of two sweet friends
(Sue and Barbie)
as they arrived to visit me
at Denver International Airport.

I will blog more about their visit later,
but needed some airline themed
photos for this blog.

You see, I am flying between Denver and Houston
and am actually blogging using Southwest Airlines WiFi.

Amazing that you can use the Internet when
flying thousands of miles high in the sky.

Also amazing that I am a little bit
disturbed that the internet connection is so slow.
How spoiled we have all become!!
If you comment in the next few minutes,
I will read it while flying the friendly skies.
(Oops! Guess I am mixing my airline phrases.)

Fun With The Little Guys

I had the two little guys
for a play date today.
We had lots and lots of fun, but
the best fun of all was when
they both went searching
for books for Nana to read to them.

"Book" Review--The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
is an Academy Award Winner for
Best Animated Short Film.
It is a little lengthy (15 minutes),
but is worth the watch
if you are a book lover.

Thank you Darlene for sharing.

Favorite Picture (Right Now)

This is my current favorite grandson picture.
It was taken by my SIL Adrian Rollett
and captures their little personalities of the moment.

Caleb is silly five.
David is adoring cousin.
Aaron is the hang out guy.

The piece of furniture they are standing in
is really neat. Adrian made it for David for
Christmas. It allows him to be
cabinet height in the kitchen so that
he can help with cooking, dishwashing, etc.
David calls it his "nunnel".
