                                                      With our visitor we have been doing lots of fun activities. I went to the Denver Zoo last Monday with Hannah and Jake. This primate caught my eye. I took three quick shots of him. He was not interested in me and I stood there until he gave me his attention. I thought he'd be a great share with Aw...Mondays                                
Today we had a visit at the Aquarium with Hannah, Jakie, Rebekah, Zach and my hubby Avery. 

Blue Monday has been hosted by Magical Mystical Teacher and Jeanne and the late lovely Sue who founded the beautiful day Blue Monday. There was lots of bluetiful blues at the Aquarium. So here is to all those fine folks who once hosted. May your Monday be filled with wonderful shades of blue.
 This fish was a funny fellow. He stopped to pose and look at those bulging blue eyes. He was quite a "catch"!
Fishy, fishy in a brook,
Daddy caught him with a hook,
Mommy fried him in a pan,
And Baby ate him like a man.
This fish brought back memories of my childhood and this little poem. Now I am positive you can not go fishing at the Aquarium. But this sweet poem came to mind.
The Bronco Brothers were happy today. Their team won!
Brittany with Blake, Noelle and Roger, Brody napping and Harrison being handsome with his blue eyes.

Can you believe October arrived? It brought some cooler weather and beautiful colorful leaves. I love this google image share.  Thankful for the weather changing.
Stop by and visit Pink Saturday Maxine is right! Get your mammogram ladies! It is very important. Thankful for technology for this dreadful disease.
Snoopy and Charlie Brown and the gang celebrated 69 years together this year. Amazing. Do you watch the holiday specials? We do and we love the cartoon characters. Precious and happy. Thankful for such sweet characters like  Charlie Brown and Snoopy.
Did you celebrate National Coffee Day? We had ACV and Honey in our cups. Karla, my niece, er.... I mean Santa gave me the sLOVEnian cup several years ago. Rebekah bought her dad the hot springs cup on our trip there two years ago. Time flies.... Thankful for your choice of hot or cold beverages.
My girl Hannah is heading to upstate New York and a new adventure. We went to the Colorado Rockies final home game on SONday. It was so hot - mid to high 80's but we loved it. We had fun, we ate, watched the game and even stopped by OneUp to say hi to her friends there. The bartender Tough made us a Gummy Bear shot. I would not drink too many of those, but they taste like my favorite gummy bears! Our Rockies won! It was a good day.
                                                       Thankful for these boys in my life.
Meanwhile, three of my favorite guys were at the Denver Bronco game. They had fun, rode the Bronco bus there which is always fun and cheered for their losing team. Those Broncos can't seem to get out of the losing rut they have been in all month of September long. Jeremy is enjoying his job and being dad to three kiddos. The baby is growing so quickly. Thankful for sports. Thankful for beautiful grandbabies,
This is Brody's baby. He loves him so much. Brody is a full speed, fast track, never slowing down kinda boy. He is one hundred percent pure B O Y ! But when he needs a nap he goes to his brother. This is love at it's finest. Thankful for this and so much more.
Love this image of the Northern skies. Look at all those stars dotted the horizon. Thankful for the beauty all around us.

"He spread out the Northern skies over empty space;
       He suspends the earth over nothing.
   He wraps up the waters in His clouds;
        Yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.
    He covers the face of the full moon;
          spreading His clouds over it.
     He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters.
           for a boundary between light and darkness.
      The pillars of the heaven's quake,
            aghast at His rebuke.
        Job 26: 7-9 and 11-14
I hope you visit and leave some happiness behind. Thor was sad his mom and dad went on a little getaway. He was sad so when I brought out a basket of the clean laundry , he hopped right in. Molly, on the other hand, passed out before the hubby and I finished our rousing hand of Gin Rummy! Thankful for simplicity. Puppies too. Felines as well. Leo at the top of that list.

Late for Aw...Mondays, Happy Tuesday and More

The past week has been a tough week. So I am going backward, starting with my Wordless Wednesday You know I can not be wordless. Sigh!
There they are!
Happy Tuesday it simply Mr. Kitty, Mr. Cat, Mr. Tompkins! His life is what you'd call :the good life".

Humor: it is the best go to drug you can use. Besides all the nasty Big Pharm pills have too many side effects. Tacos are good too. You can make them or buy them so many ways! Tacos are good.
Why didn't the dog wanna play football?
....Cause he's a Boxer! hahahahahaha
You're welcome!
Surround yourself with good people. Ones who like to laugh. Nancy from my Premier days is one of those people.  You can thank Nancy for this silly dog joke. Than visit Aw...Mondays and say a belated hi and hey to Sandee and the gang!
The hubby wanted to watch some football so I joined him. The photo on the left, anytime he wears his Kentucky wildcat Basketball hat. We meet the nicest people! A guy came rushing over to our table and stuck out his hand! Wildcats, yeah....he said!  That hat makes the best conversation starters. Thanks Colton, the wonderful grandson who gave him that hat when he visited Kentucky!
This precious boy would have turned nine months old today. It has been hard living without you. Your Daddy and Mommy and brother Harrison miss you so much. We all love you and Grandfather Avery says it best, you are playing with Jesus in Heaven. We will never forget your laughter and your beautiful smiling face.  Alastor Avery, Rest easy baby boy, one of these days we will join you too. Smile down at us.
My sweet friend Cheri lost her precious mom recently. She is a nurse and had the pleasure of caring for her mom. It is very hard for her and this is something I want to share with her. We all hang by those threads when we lose a loved one. Please make sure you are hanging on the hem of Jesus. Ruth, I never had the pleasure of knowing you face to face but the stories I have heard and the wonderful life you built made me smile. Your grandson told us about your love of sports and I have heard so many other stories about you. We know you are with Jesus. Rest easy Ruth.
This says it all.

Aw.....Mondays and More

I am ready for cooler weather. Not snowstorms but I am ready for some changing leaves, sweater and cooler days and nights. I love black cats best of all and this one looks so chic! Stop by Aw....Mondays and join the fun.
I love LuLaRoe and although I do not have this beautiful Mimi I sure think it would be perfect for the cooler weather. I like clothing you can layer.
I love Love is...but this caught my eye because they are wearing matching shirts and we love to wear matching shirts! Love always right on point.
My dad always said don't wreck your car putting bump stickers on it. I did listen to him although we have a magnetic one that says I love my chihuahua lol.
I like to remind myself who is in charge.
SONday was Grandparents Day 2019. Harrison is on vacation in Wisconsin, Andrew and Tarrah's boys are a bit far away from us and so are Christal's three. So I put a few photos together from Jeremy and Brittany's house and a photo of Logan from Tarrah. Grateful she posts so many photos from the hospital each day. Here are some of the photos.
Addy, Brody and Blake gave us a sweet mini puzzle for Grandparents Day. We need to sit down and put it together.
HaHaHa! I am not a fan of nursing homes but I am of cursive. I thoguht this humor was too cute not to share.

Feline Friday

Junk Food Kitty, Mr. Kitty!  Stop by and visit Feline Friday This cat is always looking for food but seriously, we do not feed him junk food!

Friendly fill ins and Friendly Fill Ins:

1. I joined ________in________.

2. I wish I'd asked ________about_______.

3. _________had the biggest impression on who I am today.

4. _________is the most beautiful place I have ever been.

Thank you to Ellen and Lorianne for hosting and thinking up these questions. My answers are here:

1. I joined the world in the year 1953.

2. I wish I'd asked more about my ancestry when my folks were still alive.

3. My childhood and neighborhood and heritage had the biggest impression on who I am today.

4. Pikes Peak is the most beautiful place I have ever been.

Steven Spielberg was a collaborated on this cartoon about two lab mice who pursued world domination.  But somehow along the way they unwittingly sabotage their own plans. Sounds to me like our political world today. But wanted to give a twist to my share for Pink Saturday
I am at an age where everything I think about, I think about God first. In Matthew 22:21 Jesus told the Pharisees render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's. We aren't going to leave this world with any worldly possessions so it is always good food for thought.
I strive to be like my folks. They were hard working, humble and faithful servants. I miss them so much.

Love them and miss them always.
Jeremy and Thing One (from Dr. Suess).
This boy is so kind. He loves that baby brother so much.
Baby has to have the bili blanket. He is Thing Two ! Such a good boy.
Together to see the doctors about the bili rubin levels.
A boy and his momma. Moving forward each day. He is one amazing baby boy.
