This will come as a BIG surprise to my nephews in Virginia but the LE BARON is no more...I know I know..... you thought the tominator would be the first to go but No...It bit the dust today when Uncle Charley slid into a mini van and the air bag deployed and the left headlight is gone and the hood is bent and the list is endless. The good news...no one was hurt..no tickets were given so not even really his fault but Uncle Charley has NEVER been in an accident before....he was pretty surprised...and still feels shocked...so ...goodbye to the Le Baron...it has moved on to the car resting place ( isn't that called a junk yard?) ..now....if only I can unload the '88 suburban.......*SIGH*
Last week, we (#2 son, niece from HongKong, MIL) drove to Cincinnati to hear my nephew's Master recital...part of his receiving his Masters degree in Music.....this is a photo of him and his piano player. I wish I knew how to video and put it in my blog because I have been to some wonderful performance's this year with just people I know! Dan sang beautifully and we all enjoyed it immensely! He is such a great nephew.....and talented....even if I am his aunt!! My husband and I have been truly blessed with nieces and nephews -on both sides-!!! We are very fortunate.
It's a sign of our love and devotion that we have stayed married for 32 years!....or we are just too damn stubborn to give up....but then...why give up on a good thing? Actually, I was one of the lucky ones and was able to marry the love of my life. Happy Anniversary to my hubby!(We haven't changed much have we?!! But when someone said you don't marry his family............ let me be the first to assure you that you would be wrong!
Teddy, my great nephew, just turned one. My sister, his grandmother, made this flag for him. His mommy took him out to see it and doesn't it look like he loves it? Stop by Mrs. Nesbitt's place to see other participants today.
We have been blessed with many nieces and nephews. Another niece-who is also a god daughter- is getting married this summer in Montreal. She and her fiance were the recipients of a surprise wedding shower at the club (not mine!). A very small but lovely affair. Here they are opening their presents. .....and-- I got to see every single one of them. (Placemats, candle holder, very nice cutting board, lovely,very sharp knives, pizza slicer, garlic press-with the admonishment to not use your fingers as the blade is very sharp!!!-waterford crystal, waffle iron.... just to name a few)...not sure what the protocol really is but it certainly was lovely watching them open their gifts.
