Mr. Gibbs How Does Your Garden Grow?
Back to the U.S, Back to the U.S of A

Oh Canada!

Well I am headed out to see my family for a week and I can hardly wait, so I will be pretty quiet for a while.  My Mum and Dad have dial-up so I don't know if I will be getting on the computer while I am there, other then to check my email real quick.

Here's a picture of them, taken not long ago, I love it, as they are both having a good time in the picture. It is Dad's birthday while I am home, so it will be fun to spank him, and pinch him for good luck, or is it to grow an inch?  Mum has a big smile on her face, so I guess his inches are just fine....OMG! can you believe I said that?  Pretend I didn't!

 

 

 

I am going to get to see my Granny since she came home froGranny 89m the hospital and went into a nursing home, and I am looking forward to that too.  Here she is in April on her 89th birthday!  Beautiful isn't she?  I always wondered what it would have been like for her if she had of been born in my time, if that makes sense.  Because Granny was a wife and mother, and never learned to drive and she did not work out of the home, but man can she do math, and she is so smart with crosswords and stuff, and her memory is still sharp as a tack, and I just wondered, what kinda job she would have had in this day and age, cause she is one smart lady.

 

Well I also wanted to share a funny picture with you that my BFF Tracy sent me.  Years ago Jeff's nephew got married and they had the funniest picture with all the groomsmen and groom and they were in their tuxes, and they had rifles, and Billy had one in his belt and they looked like Wyatt Earp's gang.  It was the greatest picture. I will have to ask Lindsey if I can post it.  

So that got Tracy thinking how fun it would be to have Jessica's wedding picture (not the main one obviously- and not for many years from now) with looking like it was a shotgun wedding...so Jessica - who it is her Birthday today! Happy Birthday Jessica, Uncle Jeff, Aunt Diana and Eric love you! anyway, Jessica just had prom and Tracy sent me some pictures, and one made me laugh so hard..it almost became a Poise moment!!...those of you country and western fans out there, think of the new Rodney Atkins song - Come on In Boy (cleaning this gun) not sure of real name! - here's the lyrics if you are not into C&W!

The Declaration of Independence
Think I could tell you that first sentence
But then I’m lost
I can't begin to count the theories
I've had pounded in my head
That I forgot
I don't remember all that Spanish
Or the Gettysburg address
But there is one speech from high school
I'll never forget
(Chorus)
Come on in boy sit on down
And tell me about yourself
So you like my daughter do you now?
Yeah we think she's something else
She's her daddy's girl
Her momma's world
She deserves respecte421
That’s what she'll get
Ain’t it son?
Hey y'all run along and have some fun
I'll see you when you get back
Bet I’ll be up all night
Still cleanin' this gun
Well now that I’m a father
I’m scared to death one day my daughter
Is gonna find
That teenage boy I used to be
That seems to have just one thing on his mind
She’s growin' up so fast
It won't be long before
I’ll have to put the fear of god into
Some kid at the door
(Chorus)
Come on in boy sit on down
And tell me about yourself
So you like my daughter do you now?
Yeah we think she's something else
She's her daddy's girl
Her momma's world
She deserves respect
That’s what she'll get
Now ain't it son?
Y’all go out and have some fun
I'll see you when you get back
Probably be up all night
Still cleanin' this gun
Now it's all for show
Ain’t nobody gonna get hurt
It’s just a daddy thing
And hey, believe me, man it works
(Chorus)
Come on in boy sit on down
And tell me about yourself
So you like my daughter do you now?
Yeah we think she's something else
She's her daddy's girl
Her momma's world
She deserves respect
That’s what she'll get
Now ain't it son?
Y’all run along and have a little fun
I'll see you when you get back
Probably be up all night
Still cleanin' this gun
Son, now y'all buckle up and have her back by ten- let's say about nine...thirty.
Drive safe.

 

Isn't that the funniest picture, and aren't they the cutest couple? 

OK, I gotta get my butt out the door and headed to the airport!

Thanks for stopping in!

Hugs, Di
