There has been a lot of spam going around in the form of comments and I would like to suggest comment moderation if you're having a problem. Comment moderation is simple and there is no word verification which everyone hates! If you're on blogger, you can report it as spam, even though I haven't noticed it slowing down after reporting it numerous times. Just a suggestion.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. IT'S NOT FRIDAY AND I'M POSTING.
I have to say I'm a little jealous of all you that have your grandchildren living nearby. Mine all live away, some in the same state and some across the country and a great-grandchild in still another part of the country. This weekend we took a road trip to see the two youngest grands who also happen to be the ones that live near enough to drive. We took my MIL so she could spend time with them too.
It was a good time and I'll tell you in advance I won't post all 300+ pictures. But a few seem to be in order so here we go.
This boy has really grown since we last saw him and he's so sweet and laid back!
We took Charley the movie Toy Story and after examining the box, he informed us it was scary! We tried to convince him otherwise, but he wasn't buying that line. It didn't help that Woody actually did look scared in the picture on the box.
Always a smile
Wanted to try some coke and it was spicy. I think the sharp taste shocked Charley.
Pappy is so much fun to play with and Charley laughed and laughed
We took a visit to the park and Charley was all motion and is fearless when he plays
Pappy and Uncle Matt got in on the action
Daddy push me higher
Swinging looked like too much fun and these two had to try...
Trying to get a family photo....Daddy was trying to get Charley to look at Nana
They ran the whole track
This may be my favorite.....caught him mid jump on the balance beam
Funny story.....the dog The Superhero is holding is Mikey, but Charley calls him Michael. We have no idea where he came up with that but it's so cute
The weekend was so nice, but Monday it was back home to normal land....not! And lots of laundry!
The week has gone downhill since then in a big way! A trip to the surgeon Tuesday confirmed that my gall bladder has to come out, so I'll be having surgery the end of the month. Thankfully, the Superhero will take good care of
Today was no picnic either but for a different reason. Thankfully, I read a devotion on Psalm 126 about joy and laughter. It eased things considerable, well not really, but it helped.
I was overjoyed at the news of the three young women and child rescued from their captor. It is hard to imagine ten years being held by a crazy psycho and I applaud the young woman who took a chance and the neighbor who helped her. Good to hear good news.
I was appalled to listen to the Benghazi testimony today. Enraged that those men were allowed to be butchered without an attempt by our government to help. But the blatantly nonchalant attitude of some is what blew me away especially in light of the emotional, factual testimony and made me shake my head and wonder what is happening to our country.
If there is anything left of my poor old brain, I'll see you all for Friday Fragments! Have a good rest of your week
