I wrote this back in 2013, eight Mother's Days ago. I started to write something this year and looked at older posts for pictures. I came across this and it is all so true and dear to me that I'm publishing it once again. I miss that little lady just as much today as I… Continue reading 05.09.21 An open letter to my Mama, sweet Josie Traylor, on Mother’s Day

02.16.15 Sheet rocking, hose reel and column moving!
Roy and I really like these sturdy roll up hose thingies (had to look up that word since thingy isn't a real word but the recommended plural is thingies) and brought one with us to our new little house. Roy attached it Friday so we're all set. He created some bolt thing made up of… Continue reading 02.16.15 Sheet rocking, hose reel and column moving!

I attended church today at River Rock Church in Loranger with our granddaughter Madisyn and her mom Liz.

We both know that it's in Madisyn's best interest for us all to… Continue reading 02.08.15 Fun with Madisyn, white trim and yellow siding!

09.11.14 So what’s new??
Southeastern and LSU won their games Saturday by huge amounts. They are both powerhouses in their conferences. The bad news is that the Saints lost (oh how it hurts to say that word) to the Dirty Birds of Atlanta by a field goal in overtime in their first regular season game. Our defense was rotten.… Continue reading 09.11.14 So what’s new??
