Lazy Saturday…

Filed under: Uncategorized — by rlaughlin @ 8:51 pm

Saturday afternoon Margie and I just hung out.  We watched the Olympics, took a walk, went to the park and thrifted at Big Lots.  It was a lazy day…which was nice.  Here are some pictures;



I thought this tree was cool.  The barbbed wire had been wrapped around it and the tree had grown around it.  I’m sure there’s a way to apply this to life but the depth of thought escapes me and I can’t think of anything.


Na-nananana, Batgirl! (Check out the look of determination on her face)

Scared of heights?

There were some pretty flowers at the park.  Margie did not want to pose beside the flowers;

These are my two favorite pictures from the day-

My Mother said the “Mother’s curse”* to me more times than I can count.  Most days I can’t believe she did this to me 🙂 but there are days when my daughter makes me laugh and I can see my Mother’s prayers not her curse 😉

*The Mother’s Curse – “I don’t wish any bad upon you, but when you grow up I hope you have a kid that acts just like you.”  This can be done with three bony fingers and thumb pointed at the child, my Mother didn’t perform any ritualistic motions…at least not in front of me.  I did once find an envelope of my hair…voodoo?

  1. Oh, your Mama was right on the money, hunny. That child is nothing but a reincarnation of YOU. I suggest you buy a big ole bottle of Valium to get you through what is bound to be the most adventerous years you’ve ever experienced.
