Vincent, Toni and the children invited me to dinner this evening and much to their surprise and delight I accepted.  Actually, what Vincent said was, " Do you think you could get yourself out of bed long enough for us to take you to dinner ? "  They extend this invitation quite a bit and I turn them down quite a bit too, but, as I said, this time I took 'em up on the offer.  It didn't take too much outta' me  'cause I'd cleaned myself up this mornin'.  Even washed ma' hair.  I guess that's  why when Sophia saw me she said, and this is the honest to God's  truth, " Grandma',  you've got a big head ! " 
 Must be the humidity.

   We live in the "Barbecue Capital of the World" ! 
See how happy that makes the younguns!

After our fun dinner, only one tall water spillt (Cohen), and many hush puppies smothered in catsup ate,( Miss Sophia), we headed for up-town.  Yee-Ha !  I mean,
Here... pig, pig, pig....suey, suey, suey!
Nothin' like lovin' on all your favorite pigs!  
 Now mind ja' our confederate dead are not  under this here mon-u-mint.  They are else where.  Anyhow..This heres just ta' honor 'em for their brave sac-re-fice.  I figured I'd git me a photegraf afor some Yankee demands the thing be tore down and toated offt. See how big it is!  An look up thare how tiny little Soph is beside hit!

As you can see the children, bless 'em, they love all the pigs.

Grandparent’s Day at Sophia’s School

Yesterday was Grandparent’s Day at Sophia’s school. I was able to have breakfast with Sophia and go to Chapel with her. We were both pretty excited about the day and had a great time. There were a lot of proud grandparents and happy grandchildren there
P3070004Beautiful Sophia..
When I had Sophia seat belted into her car-seat and  was in the front ready to back out of the garage as I turned to look out the back window Sophia gave me a quizzical look and asked, " Grandma' are you still Daddy's mommy? "  I said, " Yes.  Why? Because I look different? "  She said " Yes."  Guess that tells me if I'm in bed in my PJ's too much!

P3070015For the life of me I couldn't center us in a self portrait.  I did manage to get our smiles in the frame and that makes the picture, don’t you think?   Sophia asked me not to use the flash because " it breaks my eyes."  And as the service started to get too long she told me "I want to get outta' here."
Outside in the church yard was
A Nice Touch of Color
P3070042These crocus and daffodils were blooming in one of the church flower beds.
All the trees are still bare and it is windy and chilly to cold each day but you can tell Spring will be hear soon.
