Down on the lake at Kathy's for T'dega~

~We had a exciting weekend down on the water at Kathy's & for the Talladega races also! When we wasn't at the track Jeff was loafing us to junk stores & a little greenhouse/antique shop also! While we was at the little greenhouse me & him spotted a pretty little Japanese Maple tree across the yard & I was gonna bend down & look on the "TAG" to see how much it was.......it wasn't a tag it was a baby snake wrapped up in it.....well here we go! We get the lady & she yanks some "old lopping shears" off the wall & hands'em to Jeff (HEHA) my next question is how much is the tree cause he's going to CHOP "something" w/ the shears I just wanted to make sure we was good on the tree if it "didn't make it" if you know what I mean! :0).... While at Kathy's I was on the look out for a family of geese, she kept a good eye on her 5 yellow fuzzy baby's & us too! When it was time for the track we got to meet up w/ several friends! Russel & Katie, Doc & Emily & their crazy crew & Ms. Miller was able to come w/ her daughter in law also! I hope you enjoy some of my ton of pic's I'll tried to keep it brief! I gotta new camera w/ my birthday money & I get a little excited sometimes!

oh our Flowers!......i luv them all...

Cocoa's not tellin'.......

~someone altered the rock in my flowerbed! Cocoa's not saying a word!

my thoughts for today....

I absolutely can't wait to get out in the flowerbeds this is very peaceful to me to just scratch around in the dirt! I love to get out this time of the year & see what survived the winter this picture below is some peonies that are wanting to sprout up! It's hard to believe how ugly they are now

& in just a few weeks will have huge flowers ! The picture below is what would happen if I hit the Georgia Power Ball Lottery! Yep,.... well I'd call Jeff home first cause he wouldn't work another day!

Rowdy Weather

WHTN-"Horton Storm Chasers" are reporting from Preston Island (S'boro) & it's just awful folks! It looks like the tornado just sat himself down in that slough & went to town bouncing back from once side of the bank to the other! This is a few shots we have for you from the scene..

We went down to Kathy's Sunday for her birthday BBQ, Jerry was manning the grill he done a great job. We had way too much to eat as usual. Everyone brought sides & she had a wonderful strawberry short cake!

Oh!.... I had told you in a earlier post that a flower bed was brewing?! Oh me! I have 3 new flower beds!!! We had the best time all day long on Sat., we worked outside until dark & you can see Cocoa had her 2 cents in it too!

my favorite quote for the day.....

"You can kick and scream for a while,
but then eventually, you have to play
the hand that's dealt you. Play it elegantly.
Play it courageously. Play it with a great
deal of strength." ~Fran Drescher
