A fun memory

Went to an unbelievable concert this evening. One of the ladies whom performed had a gold tooth which I could see from my seat. reminded me of something that happened while we were on vaca.

One day we stopped a Kentucky Fried Chicken . Two clerks behind the counter both had goldteeth. My 7year old grandson was fascinated with the golden teeth(grill). Out of the blue he says to the clerk "where did you get your gold teeth?" I of course wanted to climb under the counter, but that didn't stop Daniel, O NO. With pointed finger he says" Look grandma he has them too." I honestly was turning red as an apple by this point and tried to quiet him. he then announced "grandma , I want some of them." I told the clerks he liked their teeth and wanted some just like em. They both chuckled, and I sighed in relief. They weren't angry with this little chap.

All Good Things DO Come to and END

The one boardwalk I know of in Florida-John's Pass- this is about as long as it is! Funny really when compared to the ones in NJ!

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. T. E. Lawrence
I have been sorta contemplative this morning-is it me or is it the cough syrup I have been taking? teehee
I have only a couple of days left here in Maryland before I start on the road trip back to Florida.
I am so happy for the summer to begin to come to an end. It has been quite a summer with the family-children and grandchildren, aunts,uncles, sister, brothers, in-laws, & old friends.
I will miss all these folk, but it is time for me! My new friends and my life! Believe it or not but I do have a life of my own. Sometimes I really don't think folk appreciate that I do! However, that's what happens when you give till you are exhausted. You need to get recharged so you can give more. AND that's about where I am today.
I have so much more to accomplish before I leave, and really don't know why I am on the computer. But, here I sit. Taking some time for me before I get out the ole mommanator routine and get it done.
I still have some things I promised to do with the kiddos, packing a car, and a couple of projects I have started in dau #2's home. OMY get up and get it done! So I will write again when I get back to my place in Florida I guess!
post script-some will say O you will be missing them soooo soon, and I suppose they are correct!

Quick trip to NJ

No scenery quite as impressive as this, but I did see quite a few family and friends!
Believe it or not, but I really don't remember the trip back! And it was just yesterday!
The only thing I truly remember was on I95-4 lanes going each way bumper to bumper
in the small state of Delaware! Kids asked why and I said it's the ole
"too much traffic for the Real Estate"

Was gonna go to church this am, but got up with what I feel is Strep throat, so me and dau #1 need to go to medi-stop. Don't want to go back home with that!

Time is winding down here in the great Northeast, but we are ready for our own beds, and own schedules! Not that we haven't had a good time, but one can only have so much fun-teehee!
Found this on a site I frequent and took me to thinking. In our lives we do hold secrets, each and every one of us-isn't it great that the Lord takes care of them!
Deuteronomy 29:29, 'The secret things belong to the Lord.'
O it is Iceland in previous post

u huh

NO this is not one of the places I visited this summer, however it looks like a great summer vaca spot! I have in fact been here and know first hand. Anyone want to guess where?

I am in pack/unpack mode. Or should it be sort mode? I have duteously been sorting kids clothes. even though it doesn't seem like it, school will be here before we know it. And I will be retuning to Florida in 12 days! I have to get it done before I leave! The kids wear uniforms. So granny sorts, hems and helps with the shopping for the upcoming year. It seems like the kiddos have growth spurts right as summer is here and need almost a new wardrobe by the time school starts! Kenny has now overtaken granny in height, he is 11! wears a 10 1/2 men's shoe! and did I say starting puberty! his brother informed us last night he has hair growing under his arms! I did ask him how his arm hair seeds were doing and he said NOT GOOD!

The kiddos are also all loosing teeth. Seems like everyday one or the other is handing me a tooth!
Yesterday in fact I got 2 of them. Tooth Fairy is going broke here!

I also have been sorting things too small or outdated for their other clothes and for dau #2 clothing too. Seems like a never ending battle. AND those socks OMG they have had babies. I think I may just take em all to Good Will and let them sort or do whatever with them and buy all new ones for the kiddos!

And I must take a quick trip to NJ to see my family & friends up there and get dau #1-she has been up there for 4 weeks now. She will return to FL Aug 25th. So many things to do and so little time! BUT I will get done what I am supposed to!
