Maggie ~ 3-15-1999 - 8-23-2013

Maggie age 2:

Getting love from my granddaughter Alex:

Maggie on her Princess Bed:

Maggie enjoying a ride in the car... She is the reason Jerry got a PO Box in town so he had an "excuse" to take her for a ride every day! She was 10 years old here:

Yesterday Sami was in a gymnastics competition in Ashland. She won a 6th place, a 3rd place, 2 1st places, and 1st place 'Best All Around" for her level! CONGRATULATIONS SAMI!!! ♥♥♥♥

The medals she won!


And her brother, Tucker, with the EYELASHES,
was there too..  having lunch in Ashland...

Bruiser was recovering from his shot on Thursday. He mostly wanted to nap. Finally late in the afternoon he got up his incentive and went outside to "hunt". Anyway, most of the day he was on his fav pillow by the window..

He didn't even pay any attention to the turkeys outside...

This video I got from Karen Baertschiger
(her son Herman is an Oregon State Senator... https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/baertschiger )
This woman is amazing!!! Even if you don't play golf!!!
After my "say" about Vanessa Hicks photo of the soldier holding a baby in an American Flag this popped up on FB:

He said it the best!!!
For Brian's birthday I got him, as per his request, a Benchmade 916 Triage Rescue Knife w/ Seatbelt Cutter/Glass Breaker Tip.

From the day he got it he wanted to try it out on tempered auto glass. His friend owns an auto glass store and told Brian to come on down and test the knife glass breaker! He did... He sent me the video and I put it on youtube.... Now he knows it works when you might need to break out a car window! Breaking tempered glass with Brian~

Dinner was an odd combo of dried and reconstituted veggies... mixed, spinach, and mushrooms. 
I love these. When the vegetable drawer in the fridge is empty, I mix these ... 2 to 1 with water, let them sit, drain and dry them. Here is the Mother Earth Products site...
Or I buy them from Amazon:
So, reconstituted the veggies, saved the mixed vegetables for soup today, just used the spinach and mushrooms, drained them, dried them, and in a pot cooked the pasta (rainbow bowties, made in Italy by Donne del grano), drained the artichoke quarters, and cut up the leftover steak....


In the pan went olive oil, garlic, the artichoke quarters, spinach, and mushrooms. Sauteed a bit.....
 Added the steak.....

Half the jar of the Creamy Cheddar Prego sauce....

In went the bow ties, and everything stirred up, then topped with mozzarella cheese.


OMGOOD!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

March 15th
Absolutely Incredible Kids Day
Sure, your kid is pretty good. But, my kid is absolutely incredible! As a matter of fact, all of my kids are absolutely incredible.
If the paragraph above doesn't give you a good impression of the meaning and purpose of this day, then you probably don't have kids...yet. When those offspring do arrive, you will most certainly use this special  day to profess how incredible your kids are.
Did you Know? "Kids" are baby goats. Does that mean this day is really about incredible goats!? .......Nah!
Celebrate today by letting your kids know how good they are, and how much you love them.

Also the daughters-in-love Jennifer and Marie! xoxo
