(she liked me to call her Roxanne)
i will miss you sweet girl
you were the kindest, most faithful girlfriend
you looked into our souls with your
big brown eyes
you could keep a secret
you walked with us through
life journeys
and you kept the squirrels away
you watched over us &
alerted us of things to
watch out for
i miss you so much it hurts
thank you for loving us
Lucy & Roxy
we loved each other unconditionally
thank you for being such a joy
you both will always be remembered
for the constant devotion you gave
our family

she is my friend

this mother cardinal has been looking
for a week for a place to build her nest
with the help of the father cardinal
they've been taking twigs & vines
& string & leaves all around
the area under the pergola
truly inspecting the very large
norfolk pine
right by the back doors
& then today, alas
i spy her - sitting - on a nest
i guess they got it built when i wasn't looking

see the string hung on the trunk?
that's a string from one of my cards!
we are friends
she hung it there for decoration
i just know she did
bee safe, sweet friend

vintage photos
are such a interesting find
i do know these kiddos
do you?
often i find a photo at an antique store
& claim the folks in the pictures
as "relatives"
then, i often take a new photo
& make it look vintage
pretty fun
now these are ladies
with grace & style
i would bee friends with them

a "normal" person would think that
i could find a gray marker
with the right tip & shade
in this office!!!!
but it's just not happening

perhaps i'll go on to another project
cause the marker i'm needing does
not live here or reside in this town!!

in the news

John Bennett Photo
once again catching the
magic of childhood
through the lense of his camera
much like my daughter
capturing the sweet lives of her girls
in photos & text
my doll Susie & ponytail
how funny that today
many many years later
my hair is "fixed" in
the same exact ponytail!

Easter of my Youth

this was taken when we lived on South 9th
about 1954
(it more recently is known as the SAE house)
i was so fortunate to have 2 grandmothers
that sewed for me
thus always having the matching everything
full of fashion & fitting just right
i do nowever, remember not liking
the pins when i tried them on
with a photographer Daddy
& a Mother with great style
i was set to pose
as my beloved granddaughter Harper says
who is the 'ashion princess
comes by it all naturally

Happy Easter to Everyone
He Has Risen
He Has Risen, Indeed!

Spring Time
Easter is Coming
a look at the blooming of spring
in my garden

 my favorite herb - rose geranium
bees love it too
now Beatrix Potter stands tippy toe
to bark & want to chase squirrels
why would she want to bee out in the
big world
when she can play in
the magic of the herb garden?
"oh, ok - you're right", BP
