My Mom ~ Tucker's Game ~ Chaka's Pool


Good 47º clear and sunny morning.

HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY to all the Moms out there. .... especially to my daughter Kristen who is, like my daughter in law, Jen..... loving and caring Moms to some great children. You two have my love, admiration, and appreciation. ♥♥

Here's an awwwww for Mom's Day....

Baby hawks have been born...

Apropos for Mother's Day.... thanks my Greece travlin' friend, Pat Kelly! Such a miracle to see. What a struggle this little fellow has. GREAT ending! I cheered and cried.


I hope all the moms have a great Mother's Day. My Mother was wonderful, sweet, kind to everyone, and loved me a lot! She is so missed.

....holding me above, below with Kristen & Brian 1973...

Historically this date...

1846Mexican-American War: The United States declares war on Mexico.

1994Johnny Carson makes his last television appearance on Late Show with David Letterman.

1995 – 33-year-old British mother Alison Hargreaves became the first woman to conquer Everest without oxygen or the help of sherpas.

And births this date include....

A bunch of people were born today, but most of whom I have absolutely no interest in at all.

Yesterday was Tucker's baseball game...


.... and then a visit with my friends Bill and Jeannie... and of course Chaka! She had been on a run and came back to her pool to cool off. I gave her a Milkbone and she took it in the pool!

....and one more thing.. .I LOVE this campaign sign..

                        Bob ..... just for commissioner.
... and one more thing.. if you have a Papa Murphys Take and Bake Pizza near you............ go there, run there, and get their "Chicken Bacon Artichoke deLITE" pizza..... creamy garlic sauce, chicken bacon, artichoke hearts, spinach, parmesan, and "zesty herbe" and a thin crust. OMG!!!!! Soooooooooooooo good. Having some for breakfast!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Mother's Day. Ciao.

Frog Jumping Day

When: Always on May 13th

Frog Jumping Day is a great day to jump like a frog. Or, is today intended to jump "over" a frog? Either way, today is a fun day. But, is this truly the reason for this day? Read on.........

The roots of Frog Jumping Day go back to Mark Twain's first short story. It was first published in 1865 as "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog". Later, he published it as "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County". It is also known under a third title "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County".

While we have discovered many links and references to Frog Jumping Day evolving from this Mark Twain short story, we have yet to discover the reason for this particular date. May 13th is neither the date of Mark Twain's birth , nor his death.

That pizza looks painfully delicious. Take away the crust, the ceese and the sauce- and I could enjoy a slice today):-

Maybe I can go hunt down some tadpoles somewhere.

Well L, get some chicken bacon, put some artichoke hearts on top of it, add some spinach, a little sprinkling of "tasty herbs" and there you go.

Chaka, couldn't believe she grabbed that cookie from you and took it back to her pool. She is crazy.
