Manic Monday - Tree

I thought I'd take a picture of my back yard -
hope you all enjoy
the view.
Liar, liar, pants on fire...
We don't have a tree but if we

did it wouldn't be this pretty!

Please visit our friend, Mo!

Photo Hunt - Wide

Since hubman wouldn't take a shot of my over-loaded derriere,
here's a photo of daughter #1 with our handsome Marine.
Smiles don't get much wider than that!

For additional Photo Hunt(s), check out
TN Chick, Photo Hunt!

What's in your sky?
Crazy Working Mom
will show you...
I took this photo a few weeks ago right
out my front door. I enhanced it just
a tad with the spotlight fixer-thingie...

Looking at the Sky on Friday

I took this in Oklahoma this summer. I call it "Hole in the Sky." I shot it from the car while traveling at 55mph (I wasn't driving!) and thought it turned out pretty good...

This is a new meme sponsored by "Crazy Working Mom." Please check out her blog and
show us your sky!

Thursday Thirteen - Random Stuff


1. Today, our high was expected to be 46. We have socked-in,
Tule (toolie) fog which makes for very dangerous driving conditions!

2. Callie Ann got a new puppy and that makes me happy!

3. Considering we've become statistics of the unemployed, we're
doing okay, thus far!

4. Our kids had a surprise 30th wedding anniversary party at
my daughter's house.

5. My granddaughter got married the day after Thanksgiving.
I'm sorry we couldn't be there but the photos are terrific.

6. My jeans from last year still fit. Hallelujah... I feel like I've
gained a ton.

7. I have become so stinkin' serious, I'm trying to keep looking up.

8. When I feel blue I check out Sandee's blog. She's always got
something funny over at Comedy Plus, and she's a friend.

9. I'm watching CSI:NY. It's my favorite of the trilogy.

10. I'm so glad to see the gas prices dropping. We actually saw gas
under $1.60! Whodathunkit...

11. I fixed the best meatloaf last night! Wish you could've all had
a taste... (and don't go gagging at the thought of meatloaf. I serve
mine with brown gravy and mashed white things.)

12. I read four books last month. Right now, I'm reading Stephen
King's "Duma Key." So far, it's really a great story...

13. Hubman signed up for Unemployment Insurance and Social Security.
Maybe he'll just be able to retire....I love him being home!!!
And now, an appropriate joke from Reader's Digest (since I've
created a resume for hubman!)

"My friend had been pounding the pavement
in search of a job with no luck. Frustrated, she asked her dad to
look at her resume.He didn't get much further than the first line
of her cover letter before spotting the problem
"Is it too generic?" she asked.
"I doubt it," said her father.
"Especially since it's addressed 'Dear Sir or Madman.'"
