Say Some Prayers

Prayers for Stellan




Click on this picture - and pray for this sweet baby.

It's a blog I've been following for quite some time.
If you've got time - go back through and read.

I'll post the link on my sidebar so you can keep checking on little Stellan.

Oh yeah....Carson has his procedure Friday morning (which it already is) We have to be there at 5:30 and the surgery is at 7:00. If you read this before then - say a little prayer.

It's Just Not Right!

Yeah it's him.

Tom Jones.
Any grown woman over 60 is a little familiar with him.
Gross.
This is him singing Black Betty the 1977 hit by Ram Jam...and it just ain't right.
Oh and not to mention the fact that he's put a little funk into it.
I also recently heard him singing Kiss by Prince.
He still thinks he's got it.


Wow!

Our Finest

Now that G-Ridge has been annexed into Sherwood we have the added protection of the Sherwood Police Department. Now Mike and I seem to be in the minority and love their presence. Soon after the annex became official SPD came into town on their horses...not literally of course. They were everywhere. A long time friend who was AGAINST the annexation was not happy about the presence of the SPD. He made the comment to us that he hoped that everybody who voted for the annexation got pulled over at least (I can't actually remember how many times he said). Whatever. I think it's crazy.
So for the last few weeks I've been working a 2nd job. It's only temporary. My sweet most precious husband has taken over our bills. Can I tell you how incredibly grateful I am for that? To be quite honest with you I SUCK at paying bills and all that money crap in general. Though it was H-A-R-D to give it up. Control I guess. I don't really know. But God and I talked about it. He finally had to fling me around a bit but I finally listened.
I digress.
I'm working the 2nd job to finish paying some bills off and possibly to take our family on a vacation this summer. Something we've not done in 5 years...since we went to Disney World. I think people need vacations. They're good for you. I'm working my butt off for the next few months so we can go on a vacation. For a week. But we'll surely be debt free...for the most party anyway! PTL!! This job consists of some driving. I don't mind a little driving...sometimes - if it doesn't take too long to get there. I'm the type that just wants to get there. So whilst in the scope of my employment the driving can be ummm well let's just say a little rushed. I know I've been driving fast...but I try to keep an eye out for the po-po.
Wellllll evidently I wasn't too keen on the cop watching because they nailed me Sunday night coming home from my moonlighting job. I was on Brockinton. Just as I looked in my rear view mirror thinking to myself that that car was sure nuff on my tail -
BLUE LIGHTS!
Dangit!
As I round the corner to pull over I figure I'll stop up there at the entrance to Gap Creek. Ummm....well - that is if I can find a place to pull over because there's already 2 stinking cops that have pulled over some poor unsuspecting victim! Sheesh! I pull around them just as they're releasing that poor soul. Anytime you see one SPD you're gonna see another. I have no problem with that. There's safety in numbers, right? So one of the officers stays as my dude prepares to hammer me....or so I thought.
I get out my license. He approaches.
His name - Officer Adams.
Humph.
Yeah.
Pleased to meet you.
Not really.
The reason I stopped you is you were doing 50 in a 35.
I didn't agree nor did I disagree.
He asks me what my husband does.
I replied "What do you need him to do? He'll do whatever you need him to do?
Seriously. I did say that.
I tell him where he works.
Hmmm. He said. I guess Sanders is a pretty common name.
I guess he thought maybe he knew my husband.
I'm sure he probably does - everybody else does.
He steps back to the car with my documents. In the meantime I hear sirens in the distance. As that nice little ol officer comes back to my vehicle I hear him talking into his radio saying "I got it". As he delivers my paperwork he tells me to drive safe and slow down.
Really?
Oh thank you nice police officer!
As I continue on my way home hitting the metropolis of G-Ridge I see another one of Sherwood's finest fixing to pull out of a neighborhood. He pulls in right behind me.
Really?
He follows me all the way to my neighborhood.
He follows me into my neighborhood.
OMG.
As I go up my street he peels off and heads the other way which also leads to my house. I back into my drive way and here he comes. He stops right in front of my driveway. It was Officer Phillip Gray. Phillip had already stopped by our house once on Sunday afternoon. He used to work at the after school program that Carson used to go to that was run by the city. He saw Carson out running with the hoodlums in our neighborhood and stopped to kick it with him for a minute. Of course when you see your kids head in a cop's car window and especially one of MY kids - it's a little unnerving. Mike and I went out to talk with Phillip. Really sweet and a little cutie, too.
Well to make this long story not so much longer Phillip heard nice little ol Officer Adams call my license in laster that evening after our little chat out in the driveway. I asked him when he stopped by as I was pulling in that night if he had heard me getting pulled over on his radio. He had.
Mike and I were in Wendy's on Monday evening catching a bite to eat. We're the only ones in the restaurant. In walks nice little ole Officer Adams. After ordering his food he walks into the dining area and I asked him if he he pulled me over last night.
I did was his reply.
I thanked for him for being so nice and he and Mike chatted (of course) and Mike told him he appreciated it also. Apparently Phillip had called him. YEAH for Phillip. It DOES pay to know people.
And I HAVE slowed down by the way.
For the time being anyway!

A Redhead, A Brunette, and a Blonde

Three women go down to Mexico one night to celebrate college graduation, get drunk, and wake up in jail, only to find that they are to be executed in the morning though none of them can remember what they did the night before.
The first one, a redhead, is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if she has any last words. She says, "I just graduated from Trinity Bible College and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf of the innocent." They throw the switch and nothing happens. They all immediately fall to the floor on their knees, beg for forgiveness and release her.
The second one, a brunette, is strapped in and gives her last words. "I just graduated from the Harvard School of Law and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent."They throw the switch and again, nothing happens. Again they all immediately fall to their knees, beg for forgiveness and release her. The last one (you knew it), a blonde, is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm from the University of Arkansas and just graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya right now, ya'll ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you don't plug this thing in.

LOVE this picture.
We had been in Vilonia ALL day for a ball tournament.
Can you tell by the sunburns?
(I had been wearing a hat all day and obviously my make-up was way too light because I'm awfully pasty looking)
This was taken at a wedding that Mike and I attended back in 2003.
Oh my gosh it was the funnest thing ever.
The wedding was of my then friend and now my boss' daughter.
Dancing and all....it was SO much fun.
And look how orange my hair was.
OMG.
It was Wal Mart bottle blonde.
I remember.
That's alright because the dude on the right that I'm with totally balances out the picture.
And oh yeah...I'm way skinnier there, too.
That was the year I lost 30 pounds.
It's coming back off, baby!
I've been dieting since last weekend.
I have done super fabulous good, too!
Go me!

The Bad Along With The Good

Losing someone is never easy.
I would imagine it's especially tough when it's your own child.
I can't speak to that.
I've never been there.
And I pray that I'm never there.
But Mike and I have become friends with a group of people who have experienced this loss.
The girls.
That's how their referred to at my house.
Some people refer to them as the 3 Cheerleaders.
To read about their story go here.
I've shared about them before.
Plenty of times.
And here, too.
The anniversary of the accident is coming up next week.
On every anniversary there is a banquet.
It's FREE food.
But bring your checkbook.
What?
Yep.
Bring your checkbook.
The luncheon benefits the 3 Cheerleaders scholarship fund that you read about when you clicked above.
So this is just one of the many good things that come from such a horrific event.
Won't you come?
It's at Sherwood Forest from 11 to 2.
Won't you come and support this worthy cause and these 3 families?
Mike and I won't be in Kid's Church Sunday morning.
Mike has always been in charge of set up.
It's the least we could do foe these people that we have grown to love.

Don't you just think it's a little catchy?
And I love McD's Filet O Fish

A Day Out

A few weekends ago after one of Carson's basketball games we decided to go to the Clinton Library. I was still taking my photography class and needed to try and get some shots for my homework. Mike and Carson weren't exactly pumped about ti but it was nice day to be outside.
I love the pools out in front of the library.
The next few are Mike's photography skills.
He was just about to hack me off and I thought I was going to have to choke him with my camera strap juts to get it back from him.














I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture!
This one...not so much.

This is Carson's finger.
This is what his father thaught him.
I love shadow pictures.


It almost looks like Mike's about to smack him but I think he was trying to have a 'teaching' moment.


Another teaching moment.







Carson's photography
He does love his momma.
I took this in the reflection of the back window of our vehicle.
Leather and studs from a Harley in the parking lot.


Me and my boy.
