Happy 94th Birthday Mama

Mother, in 1944 the year I was born. She was 18 when I was born but turned 19 when I was 3 weeks old
Looking at this photo made me smile. She has on earbobs now known as earrings. The kind that PINCH. She never went out of the house without earbobs... And had a hissy fit when I got my ears pierced in 1965.

Mother would be 94 years old and celebrating her 76th Wedding Anniversary today.  She turned 18 on the day she was married on Sept 22, 1943. I was born Sept 5th, 1944.
(as a small child I caused much grief by telling people I was born on Sept 5th and Mother got married on Sept 22, seems I never said the year when telling this true fact)

Mother left behind a  4 drawer dresser full of Styrofoam egg cartons and each carton had 12 pairs of earbobs just like these. She had one whole carton of them made from tiny shells. She collected shells. The dresser had literally HUNDREDS of earbobs. She never got rid of  a single pair, not even broken ones.

Itty Bitty Teeny Weeny

Did you read the title, Itty Bitty Teen Weeny and start to sing about bikinis? If so you are WRONG.. Bob was in the pool when this Itty Bitty Teeny Weeny Frog, so tiny it could sit on a pencil eraser, landed on his arm. He was in the deep end, swam side stroke slowly, climbed out, walked to sliding glass door and said in a Hurry UP scary voice. Samar! Come HERE!

I freaked out thinking he was bleeding, ran to the door... and there sat the cutest frog I have ever seen, so tiny I feared the lens would not focus on it.

After a few SNAPS! Bob walked him to the flower pot and let him hop off into the bushes...This little guy was about the size of a house fly...

Let There Be Light

And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.

God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness

God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day

And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years,

God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.

God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth

and to govern the day and the night, .

and to separate light from darkness
And God saw that it was good
