Monday Morning is Back

Love, Laughter, & Friendship Welcome Here

Morning Folks

Hope you all had a great weekend..mine was good, didn't do anything special. Saturday my Mom and I went to the cemetery , that made me a bit sad, then we visited my cousin, and then went to supper..watched the Olympics or tired to, I kept falling asleep, which is nothing unusual for me LOL..I hope you all got to watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics, they say is was just beautiful..I missed it however, yep-you guessed it, sleeping..LOL Gemma and I did manage to watch the gymnastics and swimming last night..the 30 year old gymnast from the USA was amazing, she hung in there with those 16 yr. olds and was great..! Wow at 30 I could still do the twist but that's about it..LOL That reminds me of the Hula Hoop, when it first came out I was about 15 or 16 and I was really good at it..my sister and I were in the store shopping for stuff for the house and I saw one, they don't make them the way they used to either..but I gave it a try..hahahaha..no go..I bet if I had it at home I could do it again...with LOTS of practice..

I did some grocery shopping yesterday..stocking up on some things the boys like of course..I saw a package of Oreo's and it reminded me of a funny story that I will NEVER forget..ok sis, I just gotta tell it...When Cathy was about 2 or 3 she had a best friend named Lenora..they were together all the time, she lived on the next street and our back yards were back to back.  Our house was split level and the car port was high.  One day Cathy and Lenora got a brand new LARGE package of Oreo's from our house..they went on the carport behind the glider and proceeded to eat the middle out of a WHOLE NEW PACK..they threw the cookie part over their shoulder and into the back yard..you should have seen the look on their faces when they got caught...there was a mound of cookies in the back yard...it wasn't too funny then because I wanted some of those cookies too...However that story will never be forgotten in our family, my dad still laughed about it right before he died..I have told her children too!!!! HEHEHE

I loved my little sister until she got old enough to be a brat..she found out I started smoking and would blackmail me all the time, "I'll tell mama and daddy you smoke if you don't do the dishes for me tonight" you know that kind of thing..I would have been much better off if she had told and they had made me stop...but that's another story..It wasn't until I ended up on a ventilator fighting for my life did I have enough sense to quit..hope this tells you something if you are a smoker..

Another funny story about my sister and I, when she was about a year and half she was playing on a pallet in the kitchen floor, mother was cooking supper, and Cathy got into something, I was afraid Mother was going to get her so I grabbed her up by her arm to move her, and dislocated her shoulder, mother had to carry her to the Doctor and it was so bad they had to put it in a cast..so much for helping the poor baby..I felt really really bad about that..

Here's a picture of Cathy and her children, Jake and Sarah Grace, those of you who have seen my scrapbook galleries know the kids are in there always..they are my only niece and nephew and I love them dearly.

Love MakesRS

he had rolled up the mat on the end and I didn't see and tripped over it- throwing my little sister in the air and landing with my teeth into her hand so deap she needed 6 stitches- OOOOPS- hahaha
She still tells everyone I BIT HER- ROTF!
Sending love and hugs and AWESOME pages by the CT!! WOOOHOOOO

The cookie story is so cute!! Love it! I remember the story my mom used to tell all the time. My brother is one year older than me and when my mom brought me home from the hospital he wanted to give me his firetruck, and so he did-split my lip wide open. Have a small scar there ever since. hahaha! I too had a little sister (5 years younger) and boy she could sure sneak down the steps and spy on me and my boyfriend (1st hubby) and than bribe me or tell. Coulda killed her sometimes!LOL! Love those pages from the CT girls. GORGEOUS!!!
