Happy Memorial Day! And, A Special Thank You To Our Troops!

Hi Sweet and Wonderful Girlies!

Today I'm participating in Chari's Sunday Favorites Meme.

You can visit this fabulous girlie at:

Really......go visit! You'll have a wonderful time.......... PROMISE!

It's such a great idea. New girlies are joining Bloggieville every day and there are loads of posts they will have missed..........Now, that's good, cheap fun, right???

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and that you're enjoying your family or friends............or, best of allllll...........BOTH!

I spent the day, with my daughter, painting.

She is so wonderful and we had such a good time. I love being with her. We talk every single day............sometimes MANY times............and yet we still had soooooo much to talk about and chatted all day long. She just left a little bit ago and has already called twice. :-)

I've finished the slipcover for my bathroom chair. It was such a challenge, but I am beyond thrilled. It's sooooooooooo cute!

Pictures coming soon. :-)

Ok dear to the shower. I have paint EVERYWHERE.

Come on.......please don't tell me you're one of those super neat girlies, OK?

Lovies to all!


Original Post

Memorial Day 2009

We will NEVER forget..........the men and women who died to protect the freedoms we have in this country. We are so grateful to them and their families for their immense sacrifice.

I was a young adult during the Viet Nam war. It's so horrifying to remember the treatment of these troops when they came home from the war. I'm so glad that doesn't happen anymore and that we, as a country, show our gratitude to our heros.

God Bless you! And, THANK YOU!

We can't begin to express our gratitude to you.

And, to those who are family members who have lost a loved one in battle, our hearts go out to you. We are so sorry for your loss.

We'll all be having BBQ'S and picnics this weekend. We'll be spending time with family and friends. I hope everyone takes a moment to remember those who won't have their loved one to party with.........

And now.......on a totally different subject! LOOK AT THIS! How special is it? The sweet little Aussie, Kay, from took EIGHT pictures at the sea for me with both Mum and Mom written in the sand for my Memory Jar! How dear is that? I appreciate it so much and LOVE them. I can't wait to get them printed so I can add them to all my sweet memories.

Thank you Kay!

Gosh those Aussies are nice gals! I've met quite a few now and they're just wonderful!

So.......I'm sending big hugs to all you Aussie gals!........especially Kay!

Please be safe this Memorial Day weekend.

Blessings and Hugs,



  1. Good morning dearest one. This is truly a day to remember all of those in life who gave something precious for others, and our mums are included in this one. Sweet memories to you this day and always my sweet, of people in your life that carved out who YOU are. They deserve a hand....Anita

  2. I am so glad you had a wonderful time with your daughter. Oh how I do miss mine but we talk all the time too. What did people do when that wasn't possible? In a word...suffer!

    I hope you have a good weekend, Spencer. I agree in remembering how Viet Nam vets were treated is just terribly. We should be thanking every good service person past and present for all we enjoy today! Freedom has never been free!

    Love you, B

  3. Hi sweet lady...
