Can I Have This Ruby Tuesday Dance?

Dear Mary T http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com/ These pretty ruby dancing slippers are coming in right handy for Rachel's Golden Retriever Riley...that's his name but his Uncle Bernie calls him DD.
Well this is what happened to DD Christmas Day;

THIS isn't DD. This doggie's name is Kelsey but Uncle Bernie calls her Daisy! She has her glasses on so that she doesn't miss a thing. Mean while the owner of the glasses is blind as a bat as to what is going on.[Uncle Bernie]

What is Mama Rachel doing?
It seems that she is dressing up DD into a ruby red dancing outfit. He isn't even complaining,eh?

In fact he seems down right conceited about the whole affair!

"Mama Rachel, Just show Auntie the fancy shining jewels on the back of this baby. Plenty of great photo shots here, and ruby color photographs at that.That Furry Fluff guy has nothing over me! Eat your hearts out Furry Fluff, Daisy and Honey[Uncle Bernie calls HER Columbo}You just lay at my feet black Columbo...You with your sissy white stockings!

"Columbo is some sorry sport! Refuses to dance with me!"

"Mama Rachel tries to console me but no way!! SHE says she is too tired to be doing any dancing!

"My pleadings are useless! They are falling on deaf ears and she is cuddling that spoiled brat, Columbo. She always did like her better than me anyway!"

And I am just the cutest thing in my ruby red dancing suit!"

And the saddest thing!

Mama Rachel tells me"That's OK DD. Go and ask Uncle Bernie"

Uncle Bernie says he can't dance and I am sure that this is an untruth. Wasn't he just twirling and twisting around at cousin Amanda's wedding and at cousin Lena's wedding too? I SAW those pictures that Auntie took! Ya' can't fool me Uncle Bernie! You are just getting downright old and boring!"

Well this is more like it! My Aunt Amy is so happy to oblige me She is so young and full of fun..she sure is..Oh those dancing slippers provided by the Teach are just the cat's meow. They are the greatest!

Well!!!!!! What do you think of THAT Mama Rachel, Furry Fluff. Colombo, and Uncle Bernie. My big sister, Daisy has given ME the crown!!
The prize is on my head!

I am the dancing Queen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean King!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grandpaw Ron's Special Day

This year Grandpaw Ron received two special gifts from the Lord for Christmas and also for his birthday.

Here amazing grace man tells it in his own words;

"God never quits amazing us and blessings us ? I believe HE new exactly what I needed to give me inspiration and motivation in life ? He blessed me with 2 granddaughters which I love dearly that came to live with me on December 12th ! The decision came without choice but God knew what to do in their lives!"

"I feel as I am blessed very much ? although I wished these circomstances had not happened ? I will be 64 in 7 days and I feel that God is in charge ! He knew what an old man that has some of the same things wrong with his legs also , He knew what kind of treatment to give me for my pain
All is well just trying to keep things going . I now have added to additions to mine and princess’s family ! I took custody of two of my granddaughters and now I’m starting over raising two granddaughters that are 11 years and 9 years old ? Things are going alright so far."
"They have been little troupers today because they have been vacceumning and dusting the house and helping to clean it up for inspection next week from the case worker ! They have got it looking pretty good ? They were working so hard and I asked them why ! They said because we want to make sure we can live with you !
They also said because I was a very good cook ? They also know paparon refuses to spare the rod ? They are real good kids and I love them much . I haven’t had any trouble with them ?"

"its been 6 years since I even put up a Christmas tree or any lights around my porch ? Today we got in the kitchen and made some Pecan Brittle . Its better than peanut brittle ?
They are a blessing to me and they are a lot of help and fair to middling about cleaning up after themselves ?"

"Recieved a blessing this morning ! Me and the girls made 7 dozen Merry Christmas Fruitcake Cookies this morning ? We also made 3 dozen Fruitcake Squares this morning made like you cook brownies ? I cain’t walk around much but I can sit on my stool in the kitchen and cook up some good grub ?? When its kinda chilly they like to sit under the Christmas lights on my porch and drink hot chocolate and dip cookies in chocolate and eat them ? I always have a cup of java with hazelnut coffee creamer ? Already spoiling them some more ??"

"I feel as if God placed me with this responsibility to share His everlasting love with me and to share it with these girls ?
With the guidance of my lord to lead me every day and help me teach them I ain’t gona worry too awful much cause of all the blessings I will recieve ? I already am indebeted to Him for the rest of my liife and I know He’ll allow me a little more instructions to try and Glorify His name ?"

Today is Grandpaw's birthday.
For now I will put this cake and Happy Birthday song in and I will return later to finish...so "To be continued!"
Happy Birthday amazing grace man....and God bless you.....Love Bernie and Terry and Shopper.

PS Give our regards to Princess and the girls.

Merry Ruby Tuesday Christmas

These pictures are a couple of years old.
They were taken in a cottage by a lake.
The house was dark so I had to use a different setting on my camera.
For sure and they are a little blurry because it is really hard for me stand still!
Wishing a Merry Christmas to Mary T,our Teach and all of her Ruby Tuesdayers!
Love Terry

Now this looks like a Christmas tree but really it is an antique spinning wheel that has been decorated with a string of Christmas lights.

These candles are shining bravely in the darkness of the night!

It is a little hard to recognise but this is part of a Christmas village, complete with lantern lights and little people.
This is a large house beside a little house in that village.
Bright Christmas lights around this window are casting ruby reflections.
Christmas candle lights, with halos shine on the angel below.
This photo was taken in the dawn of the day.
Perhaps the little clusters of ruby red lights can be seen by the boat people on the lake!
For sure and they are like tiny little light houses cheering anyone that by chance will
behold them!

Happy Birthday "Mr Norway"

Dear Gunnar,
When your sweetheart from the far side of the sea told me that your birthday was in a fortnight, alas, I didn't know what a fortnight WAS!
So.....Here Bernie and I are wishing you a Happy Belated Birthday....two days late!
I have never seen such a great birthday post as Felisol has made!
May you and Felisol and Princess Serina remain forever young!
God bless you........................Love Bernie and Terry

"Forever Young"

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Muddy Little Furry Fluff!

Just after my posting that cute picture of Molly,who was dressed so prettily in her little ruby red coat, her mother, Betty made the mistake of reading to her all of those favourable comments, so her out of joint nose turned into a swelled head instead!
Her sister, Katy The Cat had to take her down a peg or two!
The results?
Well Betty just emailed me this picture!
NOT a pretty sight, eh?
What do you think of your Furry Fluff now Pia K.?
Donna do you STILL want one?
Dianne, I think that Molly's career as a model was just thrown out the window!And so was her greeting card business!
Not so adorable, eh Mary T?
Yes Ralph, animals do make the cutest pictures but not THIS time!
And Amrita, my friend, would you really like your girl Sheeba playing with this girl?
Mr. Jim...Maybe my niece Adi can teach that Molly a lesson or two, eh?
For sure and what I think Muddy Molly surely does need, is a dip into Felisol's great Norway sea.
Hey Grandpaw Ron...Maybe you would like a small visit with Molly. eh?
Princess would surely put the boots to her!!

Dearest Deb...your situation is just too sad for me to say anything funny about.
I hope you DO get another doggie.
It truly IS time!.....Love Terry
