LOL...Hi, Colleen!

Last night, I drove down to the Cities to spend some time with "the other Grandma" AND the new lil boy and his family.

Out of 37 pictures I took, these are the best ones, cropped and combined for your viewing
(See? I lined up the couch perfectly here!)

J and B took us out to eat because both our birthdays are in the next two weeks, and because they love us....

(Hope your trip home was good, Colleen. We did a GOOD job with those two, doncha think?
Hugs, M)

Welcome, Little Grandson!

Oh, is truly SWEET....!

He was born yesterday afternoon, and he gave me plenty of time to get I need to make a movie called "Mason Michael"!

I'll get to see him again later this week 'cuz B's mom'll be here from Arizona, so we'll have a Grandma Get Together at their house. I'll get a few good Family Portraits then, ok?

Get the popcorn and Junior's showtime again!

You know me...once I get started on something and like it, well, I embrace it (which is NOT the way certain unnamed sibs would state it...LOL)

But see, I have all these pictures from the olden days in the family, and they're just here, in an album and a shoebox...doing what? Pah...not a thing.

SO, me and Movie Maker got together and produced this, just for YOU.....

Lilies and the Fourth

Look at the size of these lilies! They're the party-favor-bulbs from E&S's wedding (almost TWO years ago already!) LOL...I had to go measure the siding--what you see here is 33" of siding plus the blocks--who knows why they got so tall this year?

They're what the word 'awesome' was invented for, I think....


Tonight's the kind of night those of you "Ustas" will remember as one of the reasons you left Minnesota:

It's rained on and off all day. There's still a cloud cover, and the only movement outside are the robins getting a few more cherries before dusk.

The air is so thick the mosquitoes don't realize it's NOT water. It's two nights before the fourth, so a neighbor is outside setting off furtive firecrackers ('s not legal, ya know) but the smoke deters the mosquitoes for a few There's a blue haze in their yard, spreading just above the grass...a dead giveaway if the law comes down the alley.

And that reminds me of Earl the cop and our own experience with illegal fireworks, remember?

Ah, summer. Can't WAIT till it's over.
