The Porch

A blonde teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for summer,
decided to hire herself out as a "handy-woman" and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood.
She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do. "Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch," he said,"How much will you charge me?"
Delighted, the girl quickly responded,"How about $50?" The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes andeverything she would need was in the garage.
His wife overhearing their conversation said to him..."Does she realize that our porch goes ALL the way around the house?
He responded, "That's a bit cynical, isn't it?"
The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes we've been getting by email lately.."
Later that day, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.
"You're finished already?" the startled husband asked.
"Yes," the blonde replied, "and I even had paint left over, so I gave it two coats."
Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed her a $10.00 tip.
"Thank you!!" she said, "And by the way," the blonde added,"it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus."

My Trip to T’town :o)

This past weekend I went to see Bama Princess with Lisa, one of my dearest friends from High School.

It rained and rained, but that didn’t dampen our spirits.

Friday night we ate at a GREAT restaurant named the Cypress Inn. It was delicious, then we went to see Love Happens –it was a good movie.

Friday night-sweet Whit let us sleep in her comfy bed…

Then the most wonderful thing happened it stopped and we walked the short distance to the stadium…

We had the best time!It didn’t rain the whole game. WE beat that lil’ old team from North Texas.

Most of all, I enjoyed time with my baby girl. It is hard for me to believe she will graduate in just 3 months time.

She can do and be anything she sets her mind to and I hope she sets it high. I am very proud of her. I will be watching to see what great things she does.

I’m ready to go back-I never thought I’d be a Bama Fan but something about your heart and your money being there changes things-so for now my orange and blue shirt hangs in my closet. I kind of like the look of Houndstooth!

Be blessed!

I'm Back!

It has been a long time since I posted. I have had router problems at home, the busiest month of all at work and life moving full speed ahead. Each week in August began with Revival every Monday night and I was revived. I want to change some things for the better in my life. I want to live a life that matters. In a book I am reading it says "Friends don't let friends go to Hell". I am going to be more proactive in sharing my FAITH. That begins with me spending more time with HIM.
With much blessing comes much responsibility and I know I am blessed.

I have stories to tell and pictures to share so be watching because I'm back....

Have I told you lately that I love my grandbabies?

Be blessed!
