Mother's Day

Wow! My yard looks like a jungle today. I was going to mow it last Saturday, but there were other things that came up -- like having a grandson. But the rain and warmer nights have made the grass take off. I may need a hay bailer when I mow this evening.

It's hard to believe that my oldest son Josh and his precious wife Kayci are celebrating their 5th anniversary today. This has been a special week for them. They became parents last Saturday. Anniversary today. And on Sunday, Kayci will get to celebrate her 1st Mother's Day as a mom.

Here's wishing a Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there. Let's remember, however, that Mother's Day is not a happy day for everyone. There are many women who would love to be mothers -- but are unable to. And there are countless people who -- when they hear the word "mother" do not have good memories. So, let's celebrate the beauty of motherhood -- but with sensitivity.

I can't wait to take care of our yard 'issue' with you! Hasn't the delay been a blast????

If your yard looks like a jungle, you can just add some stuffed monkeys, an elephant or two, serve over-priced mediocre food out of your kitchen and call it "Rainforest Cafe.":) Just kidding to all you Rainforest Cafe fans out there.

Seriously, I mowed my yard last Friday and it looks like it hasn't seen a mower blade in weeks. But, boy, am I thankful for the rain. We just need another good day or two of heavy rain in Jack county to fill up the lake.

Congratulations to you and Beverly and the rest of the family on the safe arrival of your new grandson.

I've tried to post several times in the past weeks,but for some reason, blogspot in not recognizing my password everytime.

I'm sorry about those of you who have had problems posting. I don't know what the problem is, but please don't give up. I love hearing from you.

I'm less concerned about the food you will be serving and more concerned about you dressing up in a Tarzan outfit and swinging from the balcony through your jungle. Yikes.
