A quick update: YIKES! We are house hunting in earnest... our landlord accepted an offer and has a contract to sell this house. So, we will be moving in early July or sooner. Such is the reason for my absence on the WWW... I will try to get on here to post some fun as I am able - for now, I can't commit to every day during the week - I'll see what I can do! Without much further ado - here's a bit of fun to share:
Yesterday was a beautiful day. In the morning, Blossom drew some pictures. After lunch she decided she wanted to have a lemonade stand. But, the old lemonade stand is Branch's and she really wanted to do her own thing. So, she dragged the little picnic table out in the yard across the driveway and "set up shop" and let everyone know she was open for business and would have a nice guard dog.
Pops said, "Say, wha?" Yea, gather up your money... Blossom has opened for business, you had better go find out what she is selling!
They worked a trade of sorts. Blossom was generous and gave her newest customer a complimentary piece of her prized (and signed) art since she was "new" and the UPS driver ooohed and aaahed appropriately. She promised she would take it home and proudly display it on her refrigerator. Then she went into her truck and brought out a little treat dog bone for the little guard dog!
Blossom started today with making art. She plans to have another afternoon sale if you are available to stop by, I bet she'll be open! (Or she'll open just for you!) She hopes the UPS driver will be back today and will make a purchase! You go girl!!

I haven't gotten my laptop all squared away, so I don't have access to the photo that I did want for today... I have a picture from about 3 years ago that I wanted to share. But, this one will have to do. It is from 4 years ago! This is the big three treekids with Pops' grandparents, who are celebrating 65 year of marriage this year!! There is a celebration this weekend in their honor. What a wonderful wonderful and amazing thing in this day and age where people get "married" for a month or a year and call it quits. Here we have 65 years of marriage!!
Pops and I got married when I was 22 years old. To be married 65 years, I will have to get to the ripe old age of 87!! Hoping I make it!! Pops will have to be 89 and turning 90 the following fall!! WOW! Yikes, eh? Well, whatever the age when you make to 65 years of marriage - that is spectacular!!
Congratulations, Great-Grandma Maryann and Great-Grandpa Richard!!!!!
