In Honor of a Life Well Lived

Today we honored Daddy with this stone and fresh flowers.

It was the least we could do for the man who taught us so much.

The man who loved us so much.
The man who gave us so much.
We are grateful to have loved and been loved by him.

*For the reciter of poems,...a poem

A kind hearted man
stood in his backyard
feeding his young dog 'Bo',
When he heard the call of a Mourning Dove,
that soft cooing sound he loved so.

He remembered the joy,
he felt as a boy
when Mourning Doves gathered in trees,
to sing just for him,
a lone country boy,
so happy and easily pleased.

Daddy, you continue to inspire us!

Princess Phone

My "space age" phone has an attitude and won't take calls from me or anyone else.
Texts? Sure.
Surf the net? No problem.
Calls? She sends them straight to voice mail without so much as a ring or shake.
I found out when my sister called.
It never rang, so she texted me.
Now I'll believe my son when he says he never got my call (maybe).

Subdivision Yard Sale

Got up early.
Beautiful day.
Memorial Day weekend.
Set up yard sale display.
Brewed coffee
Carried coffee, banana and a book to lawn chair to sit and wait
...and wait.
One van of eager customers came by.
They loved the clothes (which were too small).
Bought a teapot, sauce pan, toy car and canister set instead.
Made $8.25.
Dog walker stopped to talk.
One dog lifted its leg.
Yard Sale over!
