These are a few of my favorite things ...

Mother had this 'edible arrangement' delivered to us last weekend
to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary and Father's Day.
Not only was it beautiful, but it was DELICIOUS!!
(The canteloupe was the yummiest I've had.)
Thank you, Mother!

This is three and a half year-old Nell.
She has just counted (really fast) to 40!
We are proud of her!

And this is my daughter's art in our hallway. (Well, except for the round mirror.)

Here you get a perspective.
Laura's artwork is amazing.
You can get it at Laura's Society Six.

Here is Will's gift to us several years ago...

He got that in the Arbuckle Mountains in Oklahoma several years ago.
It is painted on a mirror, which you can see at the top.

We have it in our master bedroom, which means it gives us some peaceful feelings all the time!
Peaceful feelings don't need an exclamation point, but somehow they do for me. (!)

Here is a great quote that I count as one of my favorite quotes...
"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." - C.S. Lewis

And here is another quote I REALLY LIKE....

The reason we grandparents get along so well with our grandchildren is we have so much in common. The kids are enjoying their first childhood, and we're enjoying our second.
(I wish I knew who said this. Well, I'll say that.)


Here's a poster I like....

(When I moved to Hinton, OK in 1983 I was amazed at how folks waved at me.
This 'poster' explained it to me.)

In conclusion, I will close with two funnies. (I ALWAYS LIKE FUNNIES.)

Fric: I was going to dance down a spiral staircase for your birthday, but I decided not to.
Frac: Why not?
Fric: Because I am a Fred Astaires.


Those are some of my favorite things for now.

I'm working on more.
(I like working on more.)

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
