3. I am proud of my niece. She is a wonderful wife and mother. She works full time
( currently on maternity leave) and is so good at her job as a pharmaceutical sales rep.
4. If I could time travel, I would visit the year 1948 which is when I think my Dad started smoking at around age 15. I would try to convince him not to ever start so he would not die at age 68 of COPD.

Poor Gremmie fell off his skateboard at recess and hurt his ear. We just can’t find a helmet big enough to cover those ears.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 121

Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. September is the perfect month for __________________.
 
2. This month, I am looking forward to __________________.
3. My morning routine always includes _________.
4. I have a love-hate relationship with _________.

My answers:

  1. September is the perfect month for picking apples and making apple pie.
  2. This month, I am looking forward to cooler weather- I just know it is coming soon.
  3. My morning routine always includes coffee and kitty cuddles.
  4. I have a love-hate relationship with tuna. I know that is an odd answer, but it is true. Sometimes I love a tuna salad sandwich or tuna casserole and then all of a sudden it repulses me. That is the only fish I eat and it has to be solid white albacore.

Lyrical  # Challenge, Day One. Thank you Cathy ( Curious as a Cathy) for nominating me for this challenge. Here are the rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today is my niece’s 5th wedding anniversary. One of my favorite songs is I Loved Her First by Heartland ( written by Elliot Park and Walt Aldridge). She danced with her Father to this song and I cried. Actually, it is so beautiful I cry every time I hear it.

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other’s face
So much in love, you’re alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one, she told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything, life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
How could that beautiful woman with you
Be that same freckled face kid that I knew?
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
Yeah, I loved her first
I am not good at following rules so I am not nominating 3 people. If you like music and want to join in the fun then consider yourself nominated.

Thankful Thursday

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful to everyone who left comments congratulating me on my upcoming book release. I truly appreciate your support and kindness.

Joanie is thankful that her Gremmie passed his physical.Good heart beat.And no fever.

I said , “good the doctor has arrived.” And the Great One replied, ” I am not a real doctor, just pretend.”  Too cute 🙂

We will show you Joanie’s new costume in tomorrow’s post.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

This van reminds me of walking the garbage trail,
a 6 mile charity walk, luckily it didn’t hail
It is to raise money for Huntington’s disease
a cause that makes it worth the sore knees.
Arlo Guthrie does this for his Dad
who passed too early, it makes him mad.
All walkers get to ride in a hippie van
brought to the start every woman and man.
 Photo of Arlo Guthrie

My hubby and I did this walk in 2012, but we only made it about 2 miles. Luckily, the hippie vans drive around and will pick you up when you are tired and bring you back. Our nurse friend is involved with the planning of it so we went to support her and a good cause.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. ______________________ brings out the best in me.
 
2. _______________________makes me grumpier than Grumpy Cat.
3. If money grew on trees, I would _________.

4. I have a fear of _________.

 

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

Some of you have asked about Gremmie. Him is good. I is dealing with a new kind of gremlin now.

Does anyone have a place I can hide on Thursday mornings? At least she gives me treats.

Mrs Potato Head is having some relatives over for dinner- Grammie is bringing potato salad. Maybe we won’t tell Mrs. Potato Head.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for my Gremmie, we is best friends.

And Mom is happy that Trouble is no trouble at all, she is a little piggy though.

 She claims she didn’t touch the powdered donut.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had to write a poem based on this photo.

Barney they are not,
I bet they weigh a lot!
No trip to Jurassic Park for me,
I would rather be a meal for a flea.
