Where Does Time Go?

They grow so fast, don't they?
My two little grand daughters
have grown into
two beautiful young ladies.
Kiley, 15, and Tara, 17,
ready to go to the prom,
I'm proud to be their grandma.

Random Shots

 Can you guess what it is?
 Chip looking out the cat door, scared of 
the vacuum cleaner!
Pretty profile of Tyler,
however, what he was looking at
wasn't.  It was a wolf spider on 
the ceiling. I won't gross you
out with that. 
are you grossed out by the first?
It's Andy's tail peaking out of
my blanket!

I Don't Understand

I don't understand
how this world has become
so full of hate.
I don't understand
how a love of weapons take
precedence over compassion
and love for fellow human beings
who are the victims of violence.
I don't understand 
how groups of non believers
can start movements
and promote laws that take
any religious artifact
out of public buildings.
I don't understand 
how one nation, under God,
can turn its back on those
who are less fortunate.
And one thing I am really
having a hard time with,
is how there are so many
filled with hate,
who escape every 
consequence for their actions,
while one who is a man
of the cloth, who has dedicated
his entire life to God,
can be inflicted with such a 
horrifying, fatal disease
as ALS, and doomed 
to a horrible, inhumane death.
I don't understand.
I just don't understand.
And it's breaking my heart.

Good-bye Annette

Every day after school,
I couldn't wait to get home
and watch
The Mickey Mouse Club.
I love the mousketeers,
and was a great fan of
Later, her movies were
so much fun!
Annette was such an inspiration
for all young women.
She will be greatly missed,
and very fondly remembered.
Rest in Peace, Annette.

Nature's Symphony
is a children's book that takes your child

in my own flower garden, my yard

surrounds them!
