PLEASE PLEASE PRAY for this young woman

I am sure a lot of you know 
DEBBY @ COZY BLANKET
She is a wonderful woman,
a mother and a grandmother
that gives so much to everyone.

She is asking for prayer for
her beautiful daughter-in-law,
KRISTA
seen here with Debby's son and two grandgirls.
Here is what Debby said last week on her blog.

My daughter-in-law  had been having headaches 

for two days when this was taken. 

She went to the ER on Tuesday.  Then she went back

 on Wed. and was admitted overnight .  The next day she was

 transferred to a hospital in Columbus by squad. She is now

 in ICU with a torn carotid artery.  They are still doing 

testing.  Her headaches have not gone away.  She is on blood

 thinners and being carefully watched.  She did have a couple

 of mini strokes.  I think her prognosis is good but we have 

no idea when she will be home.

I spent the night with the grandgirls.
  
They are so sensitive and miss her a lot. 

They did face time and we all were crying.  

Our DIL looked really bad. 

I contacted Debby yesterday 

and her DIL is still in ICU,

and not doing well.



Please pray that this 

young, beautiful mother

is restored to health and her family.

Please pray for those two little girls, too, 

that are missing their mom,

and Debby's son that is missing his

wife and worried sick.

Pray for Debby's peace of mind, too.

Thanks so much!

Debby and I both thank you for your prayers.

For those of you that don't pray

please send your good wishes and love.

I am at the dentist in the morning

and will be around later in the day.

LOOK WHO is here visiting for the weekend!

I have the unexpected pleasure of
THREE SISTERS
that showed up 
after school yesterday
and are
staying with us for the weekend.
Plus TOMORROW night we will be adding
ONE MORE SUSPECT
to the fold
to spend the night!
That ought to be entertaining!
Plus- we are helping my sister-in-law move...
SO---as you can imagine
I am a BUSY GAL this weekend.

I'll be around on Monday 
if I can still walk!
Have a great weekend 
and
STAY OUT OF TROUBLE...
oh- wait---
it is ME that is supposed to
STAY OUT OF TROUBLE!

I think that is what my mother said to me
EVERY DAY OF LIFE
when I left the house.

PRACTICING TO BE A LAWYER AND A DENTIST

How does a 
FOUR YEAR OLD 
get so smart?

Mom:  What's the matter with CharlesInCharge?
Big Boy E:  HUH?  What?
Mom: Why is CharlesInCharge crying?
Big Boy E:  HUH?  I dunno.
Mom:( looking around) 
Did you hit him with the golf club?
Big Boy E: You mean the one with the green handle and the purple head on it?
Mom:  Yes!  That's what I mean.  
          Did you hit him with that?
Big Boy E:  No! I didn't hit him with that, Mom!
Mom:  Well, did you hit him with
 another one then?
Big Boy E: What do you mean?  What one?
Mom (looking around and pointing).  
Did you hit him with that one?
Big Boy E:  Which one?
Mom: (pointing directly at  one)
Did you hit him with that one?
Big Boy E: (pointing)
You mean that one? 
The one with the silver handle 
and the green head?
Mom:  Yes!  That one!  
Did you hit him with that one?
Big Boy E:.  Yes! Yes I did ! 
 I hit him with that one!
Mom:  Ethan!!!!  WHAT DO YOU SAY?
Big Boy E:  Sorry, Chaw-lie

And that, my friends, is how Big Boy E
passed his entrance exam to law school
at AGE FOUR!

Hope you have a GREAT Friday!
If you are wondering where I was 
and why I didn't visit yesterday
I will tell you this.
I spent my morning like this:
My poor dentist could not get 
me numb enough to be able to
deaden a "hot" tooth.
That means I get to go back on 
MONDAY morning for
 SURGICAL STRENGTH
Novocaine (or whatever it is called).
Whoo Hooo-
Doesn't that just sound like a good way
to spend a morning?
Anyway, I spent the rest of my day
yesterday licking my lips wounds.
Now the only bonus?
This is my dentist!
Yeah- see what I mean?
That would be 
Yes-that is his real name.
You can click on his name for 
an appointment for yourself.
No charge for the free advertising,
Bobby!
You're welcome!
Look at that-He has nice teeth, too...hmmmm..
Did you ever wonder who does
the dentist's teeth?
Maybe that would be one to put on the list.
(oh-he is gonna kill me)
Maybe I should have waited until
AFTER my appointment
to do this post, huh?
Anyway-Have a great Friday!

ANYONE REMEMBER THESE? CLOTHING FROM THE 1960'S! Prayer Update On Kris

Oh, I know that some of you
are TOO YOUNG to remember the '60s
But for many of us it was a time of
new freedoms~ 
New music,
New hairdos and 
NEW CLOTHING STYLES

Twiggy was one of the first ones
that brought us the 
MINI DRESS!
I had a dress almost identical to this in navy blue
and wore it with ORANGE SHOES.  
I thought I was SOOO cool.
The town I lived in thought I was scandalous!
I think it was the first mini-skirt 
they had ever seen.
That's would be me-
always causing a ruckus of some kind...
just ask my mother..never mind...
she's in Heaven.

The 1960's also brought us
BELL BOTTOMS
image
You were totally hip in those
especially if you wore them with one of 
THESE TOPS!
image

There were hippie clothes-
The SHORT of it looked like this~
image
That mighta been me...oh wait..
my Go-go boots were white!

The LONG of the 60's looked like this:
A Gunne Sax dress that some of us wore:
Were we grown girls playing
Little House On The Prairie?
unage

Some of us wore
TIE-DYED pieces
Some of us would have DIED 
to be caught in tie dye.
I, for one, never owned a single piece of tie-dye!

Some of us were preppy in the 60's
Yes-it's true- I had this dress!
image

POP ART clothing POPPED UP here and there-
image
I would have worn something 
like this to church
on Sunday
(after hiding my mini dress in the back of the closet)
image
Somehow,
I always envied this woman's 
class and style.
image
And while the beautiful Jacqueline Kennedy
had someone that dressed like this-
image'

The ones that looked like THIS
are the ones that usually found me!
image
Was I lucky, or what?
What?
Add you own favorite fashionista
remembrances in the comments if you'd like.

Update on Kris:
She came through her surgery and is doing just fine. Her hubby says she is out of it so now we can
say what we really think about her....lol..
Just kidding, Kris, you know I love ya!
She should be headed home on Saturday.

NEW WORD WEDNESDAY - #3

Our new word today is brought to us by
SWEET CHEEKS!

She has always had a whole 
repertoire of her 
OWN WORDS
that she developed as she 
learned to talk.
Your new word today is
HORRUNGUS!

Here is how it is pronounced
HOR-EE-UNGUS

HORRUNGUS is composed of two words:
Horrid & Humongous.
This is an example of something
HORRUNGUS!
Hmmmm....Kinda looks like 
MyHero when he gets up in the morning.
Of course, that would be 
BEFORE COFFEE!

Here is what 
HORRUNGUS
looks like at Walmart!
Although this may just be more
HORRID
but is not a comment on size...
face cut off to protect the guilty
As usual, your mission for the week
is to be able to use
HORRUNGUS
at least once this week.

And you can't use Walmart, either,
I already did!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Please Pray For Our Blogging Friend, Kris-Junk Chic Cottage

I have met some wonderful people 
in Bloglandia and
 is one of them.
She is unfailingly kind to other bloggers
and goes out of her way to 
accommodate people.
I could tell you stories about her many kindnesses...
but I won't....lol

She has had a lot of ups and downs 
in the last year with kids moving,
hubby's health issues/job issues,
daughter losing her pet....
just a lot.

Now, she is off for some surgery,
nothing serious,
but surgery is surgery 
and it will keep her from blogging for a bit.
Please send up some prayers
and/or good wishes for her.
Her surgery is tomorrow but she
won't see any comments then
so I wanted to do this a day early.

Love ya, Kris!
We will wait anxiously for your return.
I am going to think about you sitting here
while you are recovering.
I'll be over at the 
VA TODAY
pushing the boys around again-
Catch you late today!

A CONGRATULATIONS & VERY BITTERSWEET NEWS

I have been waiting to announce this
until I got the all clear from my
son-in-law, Big J
Sorry for the poor picture quality!
He has a new job
and while we are
THRILLED FOR HIM,
we are a bit sad, too.

That means that he will moving
with my daughter, Mimi,
BigBoyE, CharlesInCharge
and our sweet
Bright Eyes
out of state.
 I know that many families
have their relatives spread out all over the 
United States.
We have been so blessed to have 
them only live a couple of hours away.
Now they will be 8 hours from us.

Anyway,
as sad as I am we are thrilled for my 
son-in-law.
He is the new
DISTRICT SALES MANAGER
in Indiana
for
HARLEY-DAVIDSON!

Harley-Davidson
thinks he is serious and staid.
We know the other side of him, too.
This is one of my favorite pictures of
Big J & Mimi.
Hmmmmm...
Now that he is going to be riding 
A HOG
that's what they call those big ol' Harley's ya know.
I think I will have to order my daughter
an outfit so she can be a
BIKER BABE!
Look at this!
PINK HARLEY CLOTHES
for ladies!


image
and PINK PURSES

image

Pretty Cute, huh?
I can't wait to see if BigJ
brings Mimi home one of these!
I am trying to picture BIG J just riding
this HOME from WORK!
image
Do you think they would laugh at him?
Now that I am looking at 
Harley Stuff
I told MyHero that 
 there are some real
BIKER BABES 
out there!

I thought MyHero might like to see
a BABE in a Harley outfit.
So-I found the perfect one for him 
to look at!

Preacher approved!

Congratulations, Big J.
We love you and wish you well-
even if you are taking our girl
and grandbabies away from us!

Oh-Wait!
That means that when 
THE INLAWS
(that would be us)
come to visit we will have to 
STAY LONGER.
YOU are a LUCKY man!

Finish It Up Friday- Five Favorites (plus a couple)

Any of you old enough to remember
The Three Faces of Eve
with JoAnn Woodward?

Well, today's post is all about
The Looks Of Lulu

I couldn't resist posting these.
Her baby sitter made her up and
took pictures of her for a school project.
She is supposed to look like a
1950's young movie star.
I think they hit the nail on the head,
don't you?
One more of her in the 50's mood
Look at the bow in her hair and the curls.
Here she is unmade up...
as we usually see her as she goes off to school.
 If you remember for Easter Sunday 
she set her hair in pin curls.
She is usually NOT THE CLOWN in the family
so it fun to get her when she is 
mugging for the camera.
C'mon Lulu!
Give us a nice smile for the camera!
Okay-
How about one of your 
"SWEET" SELF?
I love that one, Lulu,
but could we get 
JUST ONE MORE?
Do a nice picture with Papa now!
Okay?
(Papa thinks she is smiling nicely at the camera)

Lulu!
Now look what you've done!
He feels so bad now- 
Papa is sitting in the car and texting his only friend
cuz his feelings are hurt.
Poor Papa!

I felt so sorry for MyHero that I decided
I should take him away for the weekend.
(Hey-Any excuse for a road trip, right?)

I am leaving this morning and will
be gone until Monday morning.
Hope MyHero wants to go with me
otherwise it is Hasta la vista, baby!

Spring On The Bay- Look At The Color Of Spring Here!!!!

Yes, It's true!
SPRING IS HERE!
That is what they are telling me.

So, could someone please explain
why this is a COLOR picture of the water out front?
We have had so many grey days,
I could fly.....
if I could get my broom started!

Not a speck of green to be seen...
When-Oh-When will Spring  
EVER COME?

I am opening at the VA this morning.
I need to be there before 6 AM.
Do you think it would be selfish of me to 
PRAY that when I got home this afternoon
that the above scene would look like this again?
Well, would that be TOO MUCH to ask?

Well, I am a little bit 
WORRIED 
about it...
I wonder if 
SPRING
will EVER come.
Yes- I am!
I am worried!
See?
Hey- At least I got the hair color right!

Have a great day!

NEW WORD WEDNESDAY

Here I am again as promised!
Second week in a row for
NEW WORD WEDNESDAY!

Here is another 
NEW WORD
to add to your repertoire.

Today's word is brought to you by
Lulu, when she was age 3.

The word for today is
LASTERDAY.

It is pronounced
LAST-TUR-DAY.

This is composed of two common words.
LAST and YESTERDAY.
.
Let's use this in a sentence.

LASTERDAY I went to Disney World
and I saw Piglet there.

Doesn't that word make 
PERFECT SENSE?

What does YESTER mean anyway?
LASTERDAY  can be ANY DAY
BEFORE today!

Just so you know,
LASTERDAY- 
Lulu's sister was human
Today she is....
well, see for yourself.....
I  guess she was sleeping standing up...

You have a great TODAY and I hope
YOUR LASTERDAY 
was a wonderful one, too.
