Good morning Liz and Allbodies.
I hope you have a great day.
No, Liz, no BBQ. Daughter is bringing the food, birthday cake and ice cream, but I don't know what we are having.
Today is the baby shower. That little guy already has enough stuff bought for him to carry him through his first 6 months or more, so he really doesn't need a shower. All the family will run out and buy him more stuff when he is born. I am eager to see the decorations. There are cakes, a tractor, motorcycle, and I don't know what else, all made of of diapers.

Nothing in the world can take place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

Hi, Jordan115. I hope you have a good week end also. I'm not from Florida either. I'm from Southeast Kansas.
Today was a beautiful day and, according to the forecast, we are going to have a string of beautiful days. I love this time of year.

Hi Murph, it was rainy here today, i hope we have a string of nice weather here soon. It always seems like we have a nice day, then a rainy day, then a chilly day...
But i just started on this forum cause i noticed the game and it seemed fun. I also like the word games they play here. I gave u props for replying back to me. And its also nice to have an inspirational thread when u need something inspiring to read after reading all those horrible news threads!

Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot come to it through any organisation, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, nor through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through
the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection ...

Good Morning Ladies and Happy Mother's Day to All

Murph how was the shower? Did they have a cute cake?

Hope you have a nice day for your outside party today.

Good morning,Jordan, Zazz, Liz, and Allbodies.
I wish every one of you a very Happy Mother's Day.
It is beautiful here today.

Liz--the shower was wonderful! My younger daughter was in charge of the cake and she rejected the first one. She said it was very crudely done. They did a beautiful job on the second one. We aren't having an outside party, I just wanted the yard to look nice.

I have to think of some way for my worthless hands to work the trigger on the hedge clippers this morning. Help!!

For a long time I have looked at those 'pocket hose' ads, thinking that was exactly what I needed. Never mentioned it to anyone. I got FOUR of them today!
We all went out in the back yard to try one out. We were standing there watching it scrunch itself back up and one of the kids said, "I hope your neighbors aren't videotaping us all gathered around a hose, watching it scrunch up."

Murph what did you think of the pocket hose? I've seen then in store's and was tempted to buy one.

Good I'm glad to hear you had cake at the shower. Having cake at family showers here is a battle of the wills. Actually sitting there and opening gifts doesn't go over well either. Forget having games at the showers, that just is not happening. At my niece's bridal shower she asked everyone not to wrap their gifts, she was having a display table instead. No cake either, instead guest each got a box of candy to take home. Then niece gets married and there's no cake either.
My daughter made it clear that when she got married there would be no cake. She wasn't posing and taking pictures near a cake or the food. Instead she had a ice cream, brownie, candy bar. I was kind of looking forward to us picking out a wedding cake together, then I got the bright idea that at her bridal shower we could have a small wedding cake. That idea didn't fly either. We ended up with a cookie tray. I'm not sure what my daughter and her cousin has against cake but I was tired of fielding questions from the older Aunt's (who look forward to the cake) why there wasn't a freaking cake and why gifts were unwrapped so fast that no one knew what she received.
At my niece's baby shower this past winter she broke down and had cupcakes.

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope your day is good. It is lovely here.
Liz, I Love the Pocket Hose. I will be able to use two for the front yard and one in the back yard and have a spare. They have shut-offs at the end. Not that my hands/fingers/thumbs can work the lever, but it is a cool feature.

The new hoses don't really scrunch back up, but they are a whole lot easier to wind around the hose holder. I suppose someone with hands could get them back in the original position.

Good morning, Liz and Allbodies. I hope you have a really nice day.
We have a possibility of major thunderstorms moving in later today and tonight.

Good morning, Liz and Jordan 115 and Allbodies. I hope you have a fantastic Saturday.

It is predicted that a Major Storm will move here Sunday afternoon and all of our tornado sirens, with the exception of one, are out of order. I am lucky that the one that is still working is at the high school, a block and a half from me.

I hope it doesn't get as bad as they are saying because hundreds of people, including most of my family, will be at the high school for graduation.

Hey. I heard a rumor that Mousie is pregnant.
I do not know if this is true, but if she is, I think we should have a baby shower for her.

I volunteer to do the decorations. We could have all those neat cakes, motorcycles,tractors, etc, made out of diapers.

Oh shoot, I haven't haven't heard whether it is a boy a girl. We'll wait to make the decorations.

Hi Jordan,

Seems like summer just all of a sudden came upon us fast this year. Another couple of weeks and the pools around here will be opening too.
