My KIDS and Their KIDS!

Eric, Benny Max and Brady!

Bill's a POET but HE don't Know it!

Grandma Bonnie’s Christmas Ride.
Over the bridge and through the woods to everyone’s house she did go.

Through the Wind and the Rain, and the Slush and the Fog, she barely did miss the Snow.

Her little truck she drove in great haste, was loaded with bulldozers, books and tooth paste.

Then over the mountains and off to the Tarr’s she went riding in Bill’s little car,

Delivering presents to brothers and sisters, and nieces and nephews afar.

Then back to Lisa & Essi’s house to see Ariana in a cute little Santa suit.

Eric & Lisa & Brady & Benny dropped by and Brady said “Guacamole”, oh what a Hoot!

Then Saying Goodbye to Ariana, Lisa & Essi, she went to Brady & Ben’s house to play more.

They played in a tent, pushed fire trucks & bulldozers, and rolled around on the floor.

When when it was time to leave and go home, Grandma was cheerless, sad and forlorn

But Brady made her happy again when he ran to the window and yelled “Bye Bye, Blow your Horn!”

Then over the Bridge and through the Woods, and back down to the Swamp she went

Buddy and Sparky were happy to see her and they jumped and they barked with excitement

It was a Wild crazy ride, but a Good Christmas for all, and certainly Time Well Spent.


Happy New Year Everybody ! -- Bill

Over the River and Through the...

Over the BAY and through SWAMP, up on top of SLUSHY, WINDY, RAINY Mountains of Pennsylvania, across the FOGGY and RAINY Bay Bridge and back home to the TIDE covered roads of the SWAMP...WHEWWW...WHAT A CHRISTMAS RIDE!

But it was a Good Christmas.
A little HAIRY and STRESSFUL at times, but we all made it.
Too much to do in too little time!
And the WEATHER did not HELP!

Ariana and her FAVORITE Christmas Present
a TUBE OF TOOTHPASTE!

Snow and Swans

Today is BEAUTIFUL after the BIG SNOW STORM!
Blue skies and bright snow.

Bill and I went for a walk up to the creek.

Mute Swans ar BACK!
The color of the water was so BLUE

Ice on the CREEK

My house and my POOR BRIDGE

Big Bill and Sparky

We ALL Had a BIG SNOW!

The SWAMP in the SNOW
WHAT? You thought I didn't put up Christmas lights?

Sparky was like a PUPPY in the SNOW!

YEP..WE ALL HAD A BIG SNOW
and I can't wait to SEE all the PIXS you have.

The snow was WET and HEAVY down here.
So close to the water I guess.

On the NEWS it said the rest of you got POWDER SNOW, not us.


Remember when I wrote how the GAZEBO canopy got rippped in the BIG WINDS we had earlier in the FALL? Well, Bill and I decided since it was RIPPED we would leave it up so the dogs would have some protection during the winter.


Not such a GREAT IDEA!


In the pockets where the canopy still had some strength, the WET SNOW pulled down the WHOLE GAZEBO!
DAMN!



So, as Bill was removing the DEBRIS so we could get out the backdoor
I heard the snow plow coming by and looked out the window in time to see him
PLOW right through my little bridge over the DITCH!



OH WELL...we can buy another GAZEBO and Bill can re-build or put back together the BRIDGE.



The SNOW is still pretty!


AND...
Hey Gail, our road in PERFECTLY CLEAN and the snow plow just went by AGAIN!

I Got My Xmas Present

Bill gave me my Xmas Present EARLY.

A NEW COMPUTER!

With ALL of the NEW STUFF!

And it is WAY FASTER than my OLD ONE!

I have a small learning curve on how the NEW STUFF works
but that is the FUN PART!

Saturday it RAINED all day...AGAIN
But it SNOWED across the BAY BRIDGE and all the
GRANDBABIES got to play in the SNOW!
Take a look at them on their BLOGS, the list is on my front page.


Anyway...I pulled ANOTHER "BONNIE"

For two days I could not find my glasses.
So, when Bill got home I asked him to keep a look out!

Well, he found them, when he went to put the clothes in the dryer.
This is what your glasses look like when you leave them in your shirt pocket
and they go through the WASH and RINSE cycle.

OUCH!

I was going to go to Salisbury today and get new frames...
But it is a NO SCHOOL day and I just knew I had better
wait until all the kids would NOT be hanging at the MALL!

WHY ME?

Yesterday morning was BEAUTIFUL, the afternoon & evening it RAINED...BUT last night at EXACTLY 12:47 the SMOKE DETECTOR decided to GO OFF & after running around the house like a CRAZED WOMAN and checking OUTSIDE to see what it might be, I noticed the SKIES were CLEAR and the STARS were TWINKLING.

I GUESS I WAS SUPPOSE TO SEE THAT!

Oh, I figured out the BATTERY was dying...I changed the battery and went back to bed.

Yesterday I had another WHY ME...when I wrapped, trimmed, peeled off stickers, tore off tags, etc. and put them all in a box to carry it downstairs to the trash.

Well, half-way down the steps, the bottom fell out of the box and continued to rolled down every step. So there was all my effort to keep all those tiny, sticky things strewed everywhere. Why did I even bother?
WHY ME?

I think that I have MORE THAN MY SHARE of these WHY ME'S...but Bill says NO!
I understand that my WHY ME'S are insignificant in the scheme of things, but I just notice they happen to me a LOT!

And MAYBE, there is a reason they happen, like me getting to see the STARS and the MOON LIGHT last night...I dunno.

I think I will keep track and you all can help me decide.
