I have often walked down this street before,
  But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before. 
                All at once am I Several stories high. 
            Knowing I'm on the street where you live. 

I'm standing in my drive-way looking down the street.
All is quiet on the HOT summer evening......the asphalt is HOT and there's no one to be found. 
But, I remember growing up in Phoenix......on these same HOT summer evenings and our street was alive!!  As kids we used to play in the street......yeah, go figure.  We'd all meet out under the street light and play Kick the Can, Hide and Seek, Red Rover and all those fun games we used to entertain ourselves with.  Fast forward about 55 yrs and it's not that way too much anymore.  Kids just aren't out playing in the streets quite like we did.  Oh yeah, every once in awhile I'll see a kid out riding their bike or playing basket ball.......but not a whole neighborhood of kids like we used to hang out with. 
I guess that's why they call them the good old days!!

Today's word is....
CENTER (I think)......the list said CENTRED?
Is that a word?

Tonight this was the center of my evening

The Voice

and then I ate 3 cookies!
What the heck?
Now I'm beating myself up.....

Father's Day with the FAMILY

How lucky these kids are to have a Papa like 
Tanner goes towing with him every chance he can and calls himself his "partner" and that's how he signed his card.  Cutest thing ever!

Then there's Miss Maisy...she has this Papa wrapped right around her little finger!
Nothing puts a smile on his face like a visit from the GRANDS!

I hate my kitchen! 
It's just too little.....but I have to make the best of it.
Sweetiepie made BLT's for dinner and then had popcorn for a snack when the GRANDS came over.

When it's just Sweetiepie and me there we eat in the kitchen at the bar, but when we have company we go in the dining room to eat. 
I love a cute cozy kitchen, but mine is a little too cozy.
Two people can't be in there at the same time without stepping all over each other. 
My GRANDS favorite meal or snack or anything while they're at my house is bean burros. 
Rylle is hooked on Candy Crush.....
just like his Grandma!!
Bean burro in one had, Candy Crush in the other.

Tanner says "Grandma makes the best bean burros ever, because she adds so much love". 
This kind of stuff does a Grandmas ♥ good!!


Love this.......

Today's word is YOU!
Me? or YOU?
Well, if it's me.....I'm going to tell you I'm going to try to blog again.....finally, faithfully, everyday!
Just when I made the goal to blog again, we lost the hard drive on the big computer so I'm working from the lap top....and that's a challenge for me!!  So, be patient, as I learn to get the pictures from the camera to the laptop.  I know, it may be a piece of cake for you, but for me, not so much!! 
In the meantime.....I have a new addiction!! 
It's evil, kind of like cookie dough....once you start, you can't stop!!  But, Candy Crush does put you in time out....and that's the only way I get anything done!!
