I am back to my photo scanning job today. Our parish celebrates its 25th birthday in September, so a couple of us are putting together a historical booklet, hence the scanning of (mostly) old photos. It is a major project and involves a lot of my time, but it will be so worth it in the long run. And all this history needs to be preserved anyway...and passed down to all the generations that follow us current folks. Like I needed another project! Like I don't have photos of my own that I need to work on!!! I need a clone...
OK, enough of this. Back to work I go. Enjoy your Friday...enjoy your weekend!

Go to the Kraft web site shown below and with two clicks you can give one box of Kraft Macaroni to someone in need. Isn't that easy? It won't get any easier to help others.
Where else would we have such an easy task of providing for those less fortunate than we are? All you have to do is 2 clicks. The first to take you to the web site, and the second to provide 1 box of Kraft Macaroni to someone who needs it.
Click on the Kraft URL NOW. BEFORE you go read one more blog...CLICK THE WEB SITE RIGHT NOW!!!
Kraft's goal is to give away 1,000,000 free boxes of macaroni to people in need. They can't give it away if we don't click.There are so MANY hungry people in this country. Clicking ONE time a day is NOT more than you can do. Nor is it more than you should do.
In ONE day, the clicks provided 1,615 FREE boxes of Kraft Macaroni. We are still WELL short of the 1 Million goal. We are at 760,437. Add your click to the total and contribute to that 1 Million boxes.
~~Now that was easy, wasn't it? Enjoy your Thursday, especially since YOU are fortunate enough to have a roof over your head...food in your tummy...family...friends. Count your blessings! Life is good!!!

Out bicycling one day with my eight-year-old granddaughter, Carolyn, I got a little wistful. 'In ten years,' I said, 'you'll want to be with your friends and you won't go walking, biking, and swimming with me like you do now.’
~~~Now why does this remind me of something Miss M might say?!!! I hope you find something to smile about on this Monday…I just did.

Roasting marshmallows outdoors. Remember when? That is a fond childhood memory of mine. Doodlebug had fun last night learning the tradition down at the fire pit by the lake. He is also learning about safety and the dangers around fires.
We’re going back for another session tonight, and adding just a few more kids to the mix…and some hot dogs and some baked beans. Come join us! The weather has cooled off and the fire will be hot. Happy Sunday, y’all!

So what will we do instead? Endless possibilities of doing *stuff*.........or doing............nothing. Having freedom is important on so many levels.
Whatever you do this day, stay safe...and give thanks...and be sure to give someone a hug. Hugs are good. Life is good!

We'll take some time off to go outside and play on the water today. Logan and Reid needed the pontoon boat today, so Dick and I get to go enjoy BBQ at the 'playhouse' on the lake. Now that's a great trade off! Want to 'borry' it again tomorrow???
Just another day in paradise! Life is good...go out and enjoy!!!

Missy is wondering where the water is going, but it is August and the lake is draining. It happens every year, since TVA controls the levels, with just a little assistance from Mother Nature. Summer fun is on the way out.

He is bringing a network drive with him, and he is going to tweak our network situation so that all the computers speak the right bytes to find the network and the printer! Woohoo!!! I like it when everything cooperates and plays nicely.
Enjoy your Friday. Share a smile!

I have church bulletins for two services ready to fold and then stuff the inserts inside. Whew, it's been a busy two days. At least I don't have to go home and cook dinner tonight. Life is good!!!

The only TWO vehicles in the whole parking lot, and the lady manages to back her truck into my car after lunch yesterday! And I don’t know how she managed to hit this side of may car, as she was parked not only across the lot from me, but she was closer to the *other* side. Now that takes talent! Idiot. Her big ole trailer hitch put a hole there in my bumper. It is not a pretty picture.
The claims adjuster will be in touch today or tomorrow the insurance lady said. You can count on it getting fixed right. This car had NO dings on it till now, even though it is six years old. I am not a happy camper.
But the good news is that no one was hurt and *stuff* is fixable…and life goes on………and it is still good!
Happy Tuesday, y’all. Stay accident free!

I will be playing church secretary this week while Maureen has knee surgery, so I'm going in this afternoon for a refresher course on what to do. And cleaning off my own desk here so that I can be off working elsewhere!
And then tonight, the whole family will be over to celebrate Brian's birthday, now that he and Jason are back from their fishing/lobstering trip.

This proud mama wants you to go check out her site to see what she did. Leave her a sweet comment, OK? She and I both will appreciate it.
Enjoy your Sunday, y'all, and count your blessings. Be sure to share a smile with someone today...and every day! It makes a difference.

Doodlebug misses his "Bike Dude" and wants you to hurry back. You are such a good uncle to all the kiddies!
Celebrate your special day!!! No, you cannot have the keys to the airplane!
Saturday morning update: Brian and Jason finally got into ATL late last night and friend Matt picked them up at MARTA and drove Jason home this morning. Brian's new bike frame needed to be picked up and then his bike re-done, so that is how he is spending his birthday. Then dinner with friends. We'll celebrate with the family tomorrow!
