New Years Day Birthday Girl

Today it is New Years Day and it is Mrs. Jim's birthday!!
So Happy News Years Everybody and Happy Birthday Mrs. Jim.....

Because the stores were all closed up today, tighter than a drum Mrs Jim, all I could manage to find was this stale chocolate chip cup cake left over from Christmas eve.
I used second hand candles that I had left over from Mr. Jim's birthday cake.
As you well know that guy is 106 years old so at that rate , I have about five more years worth of candles.
In these hard economic times, we must not waste, eh?

I hope that you guys don't get sun burnt in that warm place you have gone to.
There are quite a few people that would have loved to go along if they had only been asked.
If you think that Texas is cold, you ought to make a winter trip to Canada.
Leave your bathing suits behind though and bring your fur coats and snow shoes, eh?

Now, here is a gang that really misses you Mrs. Jim.
They got a couple of dogs together and went to the YMCA..Brought a beach blanket and pretended they were at the beach,
If you don't recognise them because the picture is so small, I will tell you their names..
Hmm...WE have here, Billy and Karen and BP and Katrin and Adi.

When Amrita's girl, Sheeba found out that there was a birthday party going on, she had Adi fly over and pick her up.
Sheeba had a few second thoughts about leaving the warmth of India and leaving her mama behind, so Adi let her take the newspaper where her mama's was front page news.
She is missing her mama and all for not! There was no party going on at all. Not one crumb of birthday cake and NO ice cream either!
Mrs. Jim and Mr. Jim had taken off and were having their own party in places unknown.
A place that was full of sunlight and warm weather!!
And PROBABLY licking on ice cream cones!
Chocolate ones!!

Mrs. Jim, if you noticed ,there was one head missing in the above group.
And that was Amber. She preferred to stay home to watch, "Deal or no Deal" starring her favourite Canadian personality, Howie Mandel.
Ever since I told Amber about that show, she has become addicted.
I have created a monster and you have my a deepest apologies Mrs. Jim!

Mrs Jim..I think that Mrs. Mac really wanted to come when I invited her but alas...she ended up stuck in a big pile of s snow....yep stuck solid in a huge heap that had been of her own making. I think that she was trying to make a giant snowball to throw at me!!
Oh the irony of the whole thing!

Happy Birthday once again dear Mrs. Jim!
You and Mr. Jim return home soon.................
Love Terry

Can I Have This Ruby Tuesday Dance?

Dear Mary T 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 "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.
