TBT–Daredevil Amy…and the birthday gal


Wayne, Amy unicycle

Our Amy has always been a bit of an adventurous gal.  Family friend Wayne saw her sitting on the parade route and asked if she wanted to ride.  Duh…of course!  Y’all might remember she is the one with the broken arm in last week’s photo.  That happened on our trampoline, jumping with much older cuzn Sean.  Her other cuzn ratted her out, stating that she kept asking Sean to “bounce me higher.”  So he did.  Her landing was not as planned, resulting in a trip to the hospital.  Oh the fun…NOT.

Her own sons will probably be paying her (and Jason) back.  Jason was an even worse daredevil, so the rumors go.  Heaven help us all!

We have had rain here in paradise all week, so I have been busy with (boring) laundry and paperwork, and not blogging.  There hasn’t been much of excitement going on anyway, except…

Sweet friend Joy had a birthday on Tuesday, and since birthdays warrant a birthday season, she is still celebrating…as she should.  Here she is having Christmas tea with her precious Eva:

So life is good but soggy here in Mayberry, with more rain expected later today.  That sure messes up my daily walking plans.  Laps inside the house get pretty boring.  I have managed to make my daily 5K goal pretty much every day except for the two days we were traveling back home.  That’s not too shabby.

Get up and get moving, y’all!

It's chilly here this morning but the sun is shining brightly. Supposed to be in the 80s today. No rain in sight.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

Thanks, Sandy, and thanks Sandee! That is one of my favorite pictures, Miss E had just said, "Do cheers" so we clinked our teacups and said "Cheers!" (No, I didn't teach her that - but it is cute!)
I had a great birthday, and I don't really feel any older...

Happy birthday Joy! Hope your daredevil recovers quickly. Broken bones are not fun!

Happy birthday to Joy!

Growing up With 8 kids in the house SOMEbody was always breaking SOMEthing... or needing stitches, especially one particular brother. Especially his head. Bless his heart. And me. Until they finally figured out I needed glasses I was always breaking collar bones, arms, baby toes, sprained ankles... no depth perception. Oy.

Rain. Yes. We haz it, too.

Have a lovely day anyway! big hugs xoxo
