FLOWERS And MY FRIEND:GRAY


Today I'm joining my long time gal pal Dory from

Happy Friday one and all...
TAKEN AT THE ORCHID HOUSE AT LOUIS GINTER BOTANICAL GARDENS IN RICHMOND, VA


The next two pictures were taken in Mom's friend's
yard.   Stargazer Lilies in full bloom and the fragrance was amazing
 Morning glory with dew


SURPRISE VISITOR TO OUR BLOG

PLEASE WELCOME 

GRAYSON....aka GRAY 

GRAY LIVES WITH ANGEL REMINGTON'S
BETH AND MIKE.

He was one of my very first blogging friends back in June 2009. 

Remington went to the Bridge on March 4, 2013, he was 4.

Ironically, Gray was born 11 days later on 
March 15, 2013. 

When Mom and Beth spoke last week, Mom asked
Beth for some recent pictures of Gray.    

All of these were taken on July 26, 2014.

 Gray is just 16 months old and already weights 
145 lbs.  He has a gentle soul and loves his kitties
and family. 

Beth said Gray wasn't 

 interested in getting in the water at all.  OMDs
he must not know he is a Newfie!  MOL MOL

He passed his puppy courses and he visits the rehab centers and nursing homes.  
OF COURSE ALL THE RESIDENTS LOVE HIM. 

We thank Beth for sending these gorgeous photos of her
handsome boy
and giving us permission to post them.

Thursday Things and Mayoral Nominee Reminder


Just seconds before this photo session
Dad was frantically searching rummaging through these drawers
for what I know not.....
 But it was my duty to sit here to offer moral support
(evidently his search turned up nothing)
  Mom and I decided to introduce you to Zip
the Original Beanie Baby Cat.
 If you remember Beanie
Babies, raise your hand!! Ahh I see a lot of hands.
You guys are telling your age! MOL
They were quite collectible for many years.  They all had 
official birth dates, Zip's is March 28, 1994
We only have this one because: 
1)Mom thought Zip's 
pink nose was adorable....little did she know one day
she would have a Diva with a pink nose. He was 
a member of the family long before I arrived!

2) Mom loved the little verse that is on Zip's ear tag
"Keep Zip by your side all the day through
Zip is good luck, you'll see it is true
When you have something you need to do
Zip will always believe in you"

In this life it is very important to surround yourself by 
those who have faith and believe in you!!
