Aw....Mondays and Much Much More

Smokey wants to go to Hawaii. HaHaHa! Rebekah entertains him while the Jeremy Robinson's are recuperating at the hospital with the new baby and momma. She surrounded him with all her Hawaii memorabilia. He poses so nicely doesn't he? We do not know how much time he has left so when he visits we give him the royal treatment. Stop by and say hi to Sandee and all those participates of Aw...Mondays.

Smokey was born on the 4th of July! He is a true American patriot.

Labor Day weekend is here. Hoping everyone has a safe weekend. Monday is a time to celebrate the American worker. We plan to work in our yard until the brutal heat hits and enjoy some phamily time before the hubby heads back to work on Tuesday.
When the ways of the world start to make me sad, I like to remember these words. 
My doctor has been particularlymoody with  me on my last few visits. Instead of looking over the fact that my dentist could not do a procedure stating I was registering  with high blood pressure. He simply berated me for not wanting to lose an ounce! They push all the plant based foods and that is fine when you are young. But I doubt they ever read the labeling on some of the plant based foods replacing beef. 400 MG of sodium is not my idea of a healthful meal. Do your research before you fall for doctors and their love of  removing anything that makes you happy from your diet. I won't get political but don't believe everything they tell you.  Do you know that doctors receive kick backs for prescribing the hundreds of Big Pharm medications they want you do take? Why is our country so obsessed with popping pills?  If we can't pop a pill we want a "label". My acupuncturist has a five year old son. He has never taken any medication in his lifetime. He is a perfect example of good health without  prescribed medications that have horrible side effects. Ranting is over.
The hubby in the middle of his younger (left) brother John and older brother (right) Mike. This was taken in the 1980's. We will travel to Holly and Lamar to spread Mike's ashes at their grandparents old farm. My sister-in-law is collecting photos of their brother Mike to make a video. It will be a nice time to be with phamily but I am dreading the dry heat. It will be ninety-seven degrees here tomorrow.  I am ready for Fall to appear. I see trees shedding their leaves. I am hopeful it is a sign.

I took these on our way home from Las Palmas tonight. The sky was incredible and kept changing at every corner we turned on.

This one is perfect for my hubby and me!

Love that sleepy/skinny quote, I think I will give that a try:) I don't take a bunch of meds and stick to an old fashion diet and that seems to work for me. Meat/veggies for dinner is my favorite! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

DIL Lois and I were just discussing the subject of weight on Saturday! For whatEVER reason, my son's been obsessed with getting back to his high-school weight. The problem is, at pushing 50 y/o he's only succeeded in looking poorly. (For a while there, I was suspecting he was ill and they didn't want to tell me.) Thankfully, after his daughters began complaining how awful he looked, Troy's begun putting some pounds back on. I didn't realize doctors were receiving kick-backs from the pharmaceuticals … but I'm not surprised. Oh, and Tom made me laugh out loud last night: We were discussing Burger King's new 'plant' whopper -- I suppose targeting the vegan population. ANYway, Tom suggested the reason people can't tell the difference, they soak it in beef grease. LOL!

Smokey looks so, so sweet. Gentle cyber hugs headed his way.
