Late on Friday!

Back today for Friday Fragments!  Maybe......we'll see what's left in this poor old brain that can fragment itself out and onto this old blog.

Thanks to Mrs. 4444 for hosting Friday Fragments and if you'd like to join in, go on over and join..... dump the leftovers of your week!

This time forty three years ago, I was in the hospital awaiting the birth of my first child....ultrasounds were still a thing of the future so that afternoon, two doctors came in, felt my abdomen and pronounced that my baby weighed five pounds and they would induce the next morning......He weighed 3 lbs. 11 ozs.  About as accurate as ultrasounds huh??

*****

Tomorrow is also the Superhero's birthday.  His office had a tailgate party for him today.  


I think he had a good time.......I know they had lots of food!

  A sweet cousin recently found this photo and had a canvas made for my mama who is the last remaining sibling.  This is the first time I've seen a photo of all the siblings together.  From left to right, youngest to oldest.......Billy Kade...November 13, 1932, Patsy Joyce....March 25, 1926, Mary Margaret (mama).... September 14, 1923, Noah Daniel.....January 17, 1921, Bertha Grayce....March 27, 1918, Bernice Etna....September 6, 1915, Burruss Reginall.....February 14, 1914

After all the rain, we have had a few days of glorious sunshine.  We took advantage of knowing we would have a beautiful sunset and went down to the marina and sat with and watched.  

The wonder of God's creation!

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

My Grammy passed away in January and now that I think of it, I'm not sure I've ever seen a picture of her and all of her 8 siblings together... wonder if one exists?

Holy cow! I'm glad you son is happy and healthy! 3lbs!

Needled Mom said...

What a great photo! It's fun to see them all together like that.

Thank heavens the rains has ceased for awhile. The sunset was gorgeous and I know that you appreciated it even more than normal.

Happy birthday to Superhero! Enjoy the weekend.

I am so glad all went well for you and your son. It is so strange to think back on those no ultrasound, no disposable diaper days. How did our kids survive:)
LOVE that photo. What a gift to have.
And the sunset, wow amazing.
Have a blessed weekend.

Hey, food makes a party, I bet he had fun ;-) That is a great photo of your mom and her siblings!!! Love those old photos!! Why on earth did they induce for such a small baby?? That must be an interesting story! You look amazing for having a child that age, seriously!!!

That was one small baby, I thought I was a small baby at 4lbs.......having the old photo done as a canvas was such a lovely idea, I bet she loved it.Like the others I thought the sunset photo was great

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Were you early with your first baby. He was so small! Happy Birthday to your Superhero! That canvas is so awesome. What a special photo but it's also so sad to think that your mom is the only one left. Hope your weekend is going well.

My hubs birthday was Sunday. We spent the weekend on my sister's boat, and he got to waterski which made his day. Hope your boy and superhero had great days too!

Nonnie said...

Hope you all had a great weekend. Happy birthday to your Superhero and your son and happy memories for you. What a special gift, that wonderful pic!

Diane said...

Old vintage family shots are the best...reminds you where you came from. Happy belated birthday to Superhero. Perfect dusk setting.

Dee said...

Dear Nancy, what a gift--to have this photograph of your mom and your aunts and uncles--all her siblings. Both your mom and you must treasure this. Peace.

Did you get all those names and birthdates out of the Green book? I don't know that I ever knew all the full names!!
