Ok, I've been thinking about this for awhile.

I'm not sure when I started noticing rough
hairs on my chin...
Or that I have been losing a little more hair than usual.
What on earth made me purchase 
Brazil Butt, one last grasp at youth???
I haven't received it yet but I will keep you posted.
Probably not with before and after photos in my swimsuit however.

Not worrying so much about everything is a great
side of affect of growing a little older.

THIS BEAUTIFUL HAND



Welcomed us into the World
Squeezed our ten toes
Changed our diapers
Walked us to school
Fixed our hair
Cut our hair
Cleaned EVERTHING
Clapped for us
Scolded us
Comforted us
Prepared scrumptious meals
Waved good-bye
Welcomed us Home

This well manicured Hand …

Held Carl’s
Played with Grandchildren
Played the piano
Shot outstanding golf
Played excellent bridge
Turned thousands of book pages
Held the daily newspaper
Worked enumerable cross word puzzles
Wrote beautiful letters
and prayed…

THIS HAND BELONGS TO MARGIE B SCHROEDER
SHE WILL BE MISSED

Soaring to or from
lifting the gray
in the space
 no looking back

her unique use of water and buildings 
is so intriguing. Amy's web site explains
how she takes photos on her many travels,
 she than layers them on Photoshop
and ultimately reproduces them with acrylic on canvas.
Voila!


Love Her...

The old train station... 
by als

Hearing the train whistle early this morning brought me right back
to my early years visiting my grandparents in Ohio.
Lying in bed all snugly and warm the night trains would
go by on the tracks not far from their home...
A wonderful Sound memory!

May you have a brilliant New Year!


New Year's Eve 2011
Looking up in the night sky I saw my first falling star...
It filled me with awe and hope.
This year holds wondrous
things for us all...

Auld Lang Syne
is a Scots poem written in 1788 by Robert Burns.
It's widely used not only for the New Year but
for any endings and new beginnings.

One of my favorite renditions is by Kenny G.

2011
Was a very bittersweet year in many respects.
My lovely daughter Jessica married Stephan Flaherty in May.


Our 89 year old Mother Margie passed away in June.
My husband and I are caring for my 92 year old father
with pleasure.


We miss her so.
