Some pretty pictures

I just wanted to post something and of course I don't have any other pictures that I wanted to put up at the moment so I thought I would put up some ones I liked. I guess if I had children I'd be posting those up but seein as I don't have any, these will have to do. I think this is Grace Kelly. I love her beautiful white chiffon dress. I think this is what I would like to look like on my wedding day if that ever happens. I guess it would in the millenium.
Mr Rhett Butla and Miss Sca-let. These two....what I can I say about them! Its a love-hate relationship, more love than hate but sometimes theres such a fine line between the two. Very fine. Isn't that the truth!?

One of my favorite movies is Ladyhawke with Mathew Broderick and Michelle Pfieffer and that blond guy...whats his name. Anyway, Michelle is so pretty in this movie, she really does look like a hawk at times. I cry at the end every single time I watch this movie and that is pretty rare.

And of course I had to put Elvis in here. Marilyn as well. Such Icons.


Just another day at the Beach!

Danie and I got up Sat am and took off to Gulf Shores, AL. Its only 2 1/2 hrs away. It was such a beautiful day driving (also, so many garage sales, fruit stands and vintage stores along the way).
We got to the beach about 11am and found a good parking spot; walked across the hwy and set up shop. It was a good spot. The Gulf breeze was very strong and constant. The water and beach were so beautiful! (You can click on the picture to see a bigger picture)The sky was clear and the sun was atop the sky. I took Danie for a walk and we played in the water. One time I got real brave and took her off her leash and just let her run full out along the beach. She loved it! It was good to see her free. But then of course, I got nervous. As soon as she would see a seagul she perked those ears up and acted like she was a rottweiler. I staked her down while I sat in my easy beach chair (thank you Wal Mart $15) and just enjoyed the day. I brought a lunch and snacks. (fresh washed Louisiana strawberries yum!) Like I said, there was a constant, persistent gulf 'breeze' and sand was everywhere but...hey, I needed some good grit. Each grain of sand sparkled in that Sun. The ocean sang to me. It hissed and crackled and called to me to "Come In". Of course I did, I couldn't help it. I love to body surf! It was COLD! But at the same time, it felt great!. For a while there in my beach chair (about 1:30 - 2pm) I actually had to cover up w/ my wrap and towel to get cozy from the 'cool' temp. I could start to feel my arms and cheeks get a little "warm" around 2:30 - 3p. So I put my clothes back on and my cowboy hat. We packed up and left the beach around 3ish and made our way back. What a good day at the beach! I passed Nursery's left and right so I had to stop and get something beautiful and living as a souvenier for my day trip. I got a beautful bouganvilla (red). The watering lady said she had had her eye on that one all day! ;) That made me happy. Got home around 7 - I would have been home much sooner but of course I stopped a few times (Great shopping in Foley and Daphne/Spanish Fort plus a little traffic coming into Mobile). So I was home before dark! What a day. I vow to go back and do this again Often! Thanks Danie for being such a great companion and my silent and gentle friend :)

St. Patrick's Day with My Dad

This is me and my Dad in front of this cute little restaurant in downtown Collins Mississippi (about 25 miles north of Hattiesburg). I love this picture! I was so excited when he asked me to go to dinner with him for my birthday (a day early). He was going to be working in Flowood MS. We walked into Morgan's and they sat is in the "perfect" room all by ourselves. Elvis on one wall. Scarlett on the other...

This is my standing by our table and of course, by Elvis. This is the other wall (below) with Scarlett from Gone with the Wind.
We always have good talks. We talk about my work, his work, dealing with people, the economy, family, back in the olden days, and the Gospel. I couldn't have asked for a better Father. And of course behind every good man is a great woman (love you Mom). I enjoyed my date with my Dad so much. It will be a cherished memory.
