Mother's Day Part II


My mom and her mom


My dad and his mom


A mom-less picture....me and the cake I made, which was delicious.  The generous amount of filling is supposed to make it look kinda like an Oreo, and it's a standby for me - a great example of those recipes that take a boxed cake mix and make it outstanding.  Click here for recipe



Favorite picture of the day, and possibly so far this year.  My mom and I are two halves of the same whole.  I love her.

It's Like Herding Chickens!

...or getting a 7-year old to sit still during the last 4 weeks of school*....that's how hard it is to get a good picture of Mollie!

*not that I would know anything about that!

We *tried* to get a good picture of the three of us over Mother's Day weekend, and my mom got some action shots.  These were all taken over the course of about 30 seconds:




(I love her facial expression on this one)



Is it possible to Photoshop out her tongue??



Oy Vey!  More Mother's Day pictures to come  :)

Living in the Land of Old People

A few days ago Mike and I went to a restaurant in town, and I just had to share a few of the gems I overheard at dinner.  Now, you must understand that since we live in Florida, the average age of a person in our town is approximately 186.  Seriously, when I walk into Publix, I am usually the youngest shopper in there by 40 years or so.  Anyhoo, old people can be cranky and hilarious, and these two gents were both.  They reminded me a lot of another dynamic duo:

 Here's a little snippet of their conversation, whom I will call Statler and Waldorf:

Statler: WHEN CAROL AND I WANTED TO GET MARRIED, THAT PREACHER TOLD US HE WANTED US TO GO TO PRE-MARITAL COUNSELING.  I TOLD HIM, "WHY WOULD WE NEED THAT??  WE'VE BOTH BEEN MARRIED TWICE BEFORE, WE KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT BEING MARRIED!
[note: this guy is ever-so-slightly deaf]

Waldorf: So did you have to get a notary public?

Statler: A NON-REPUBLICAN?  OF COURSE NOT, I VOTED FOR McCAIN!  IN FACT, I ASKED THAT NOTARY PUBLIC IF HE WAS A REPUBLICAN BEFORE HE MARRIED US!

You can't make this stuff up!!
