Definition of bass fishing :
What you do when you need to get out of the house, take a boat ride, enjoy the sun, work on your tan, get dinner all at the same time, and show 'em how it's done with a 5 pounder.

You have to take the good with the bad.

The bad which means no bathroom facility, eating your lunch with hands cleaned with towelettes, and refusing another ice cold bottle of water because you have to potty soooo bad .

The good means spending time alone with your husband, having your phone for texting and picture taking, and having a good time.

The grad

The graduate is beaming bright tonight as we watch the ceremony.

All lined up in a row to cheer her on. His parents, her parents, 1 brother, 1 aunt and 1 cousin made for a nice family gathering.

 Thanks you two for being there too. Bobbie and Peggy are always my biggest supporters and fans for all that goes on.

 Jennifer and Chris after 2 years of studying, tiredness, almost no social life has finally got to the moment that is worth it all.

 Congratulations Jennifer!!

Friend ...

I been looking around, but couldn't really decide, because I really didn't know what I needed. I needed one that could do everything. But I find that does not exist. So I made friends with this one.

An embroidery/monogramming machine is just what I needed. Colorful, creative, and certainly time consuming.  It already has some built in embroidery designs and monogram fonts. But, hey, I wanted more.

It took me forever to find some additional embroidery designs online. Again, I really didn't know what the heck I needed or what I was looking for.  But so glad the google thing was so helpful. I did purchase some "free" embroidery designs from different sites. That was easy click, click, click and then the site just emailed me my "free" designs. The hard part -- following the instructions on how to download them into my USB ready machine.  That took me days and days and then it just clicked in my little head what to do and voila -- it worked.

 I also ordered a $13.00 cd with 399 folders of embroidery designs from a website. It arrived in 2 days. It took me almost 2 weeks to figure out the 6 step-by-step directions. It really was very very simple. Why I couldn't see that on the first try, I Don't Know!

So now I am getting the hang of things.

More Birthday

A day out with family.  For birthday dinner at Maria's Mexican a while back.

It was delicious.

Happy Birthday Bobbie and Ginger.

We had other plans to continue the celebration day. Like a little shopping at the D.S. Antique Village. But it was cold out. Cold, wet, and rainy. So we opted for a quick drive back here for warmth, dessert, and relaxing.

Ahhhhhhh,  nice.

Bath time

I took some time to take care of the pup. She needed a grooming. So I took it upon myself to beautify her. Bath, cut, and brush.

 After surviving only one bite mark, she looks remarkably better.  I on the other hand have a bite mark on my hand.

Since it's turned warm, no one wants to stay inside. Get out and do some gardening, planting, grass cutting, etc. And we threw in a little fishing on the side.. It was not a keeper. It measured too long and too big.   The lake regulations read you have to throw them back. You can't keep the monster. That is strange to me --- it's just a fish.

5 pounds 9 ounces
