An Afternoon with Dad











I had a wonderful visit with my dad today. It is so seldom that we get a chance to have a little quality time together! Today was totally unplanned and perfect ! I have to do a little bragging here about my dad. My dad is an inventor of so many things, I could not even begin to list his amazing ideas! He is always thinking up something new and has a real gift for gab! Needless to say, we always have something new to talk about! My dad has the most beautiful garden , everywhere you turn ,there is something amazing in bloom and artfully displayed! This is just a glimpse of what I saw today. Oh yeah! That IS my name on the tractor! I just love it, isn't it cute?
Time to hit the dusty trail and catch some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's.

Hi Steff, love the tractor!! What a fun day with your dad. I am staying pretty busy, trying to figure out where to get started again, but it is coming together. Miss you, my little roomy!

Hey Girlie I'm jealous I want a my own tractor... lol Miss my dad as well and you say today was grandpa b-day? How old would her have been? He was born in something like 1899 wasn't he? Wow he has been gone a long time huh? I know you were very close to grandpa I mainly remember the snuff and the port and the time he gave me a whole family of rabbits.... :) I was 12 or 13 when he passed.

Thanks for the comment, I'm happy with it so far, still playing though :) hugs..... cus Nell

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
