Happy Fathers Day to the wonderful father of my children. We couldn't have asked for a better provider, protector and leader of our family. We love you Dad!

Fathers Day Album

I made this licenses plate album for Roger a few years ago. I took some of his old plates and pictures of his cars and made an album that a guy would love.

I started with a picture of the camaro he had when we started dating 28 years ago. His old camaro and his "new" camaro are both red and black so I went with papers in those colors.
Here he is with his "new" camaro still on the trailer. You can't see his face very well with the sun blaring, but he was so excited. Just like a kid in a candy store.
We've had fun taking it to the Rollin Oldies car show each year. And it's even more fun when Roger wins a trophy each year.

And Tyler made sure Dad took it to the Eddyville Drags to try it out. Now Roger has the racing bug and enjoys taking the car down there to see how fast it will go.
My heart stops each time the guys race. But they have fun and I'd rather have them on a straight track than a circle track. Less accidents this way.

The album is very easy to make and if you need the inserts for the license plate album let me know. I have some in stock. I'm making Tyler one for his birthday so keep watching for more car pictures. Tyler has had quite a few more cars than his Dad so the album will be thicker.

Wonderful Friend!

Have you ever had one of those wonderful friends that you know was sent from God just for you? Yup, I have one and her name is Verna. I LOVE Verna. She is the sweet, kind, gentle person I want to be when I grow up. No matter what she has going on in her life she makes time for her friends and she always does the unexpected. She brought me this wonderful hibiscus plant as a thank you for something that was not a big deal at all. But she is just that wonderful. It was full of buds and I couldn't wait for it to bloom. Here are a few pictures I've taken and everyday there are more blooms. It makes me smile every time I go out my back door.

I don't want to tarnish Verna's good girl image. But lets be honest. This girl is a HOOT! She knows how to have some good clean fun. And her favorite kind really SUPPORTS her friends. She brought me another little gift so I could carry my mints in it to church.
Any guesses as to what this strappy little purse is made of???? Yes Ma'am, it is a bra. And no, I haven't been brave enough to take it to church. But I'm sure Mrs. Klyn's face would be very red. Maybe as red as this purse. You gotta love friends that can make you laugh. Their my favorite kind!
