A Black-Eyed & A Boo Hoo


The Black-Eyed Susan
Such a Beautiful flower
It's my favorite*

*among others...many others...


On another very different note, Mental P, Jules and I went to lunch today...I had the great idea of bringing up the fact that both of them will be losing another family member to college next year. As you can see from the above, they were Boo-hooing, really just Bereft...well, sort of...

Until they began to think about the lack of...laundry...messes in the house...wet towels...petrified food in the sink...borrowed credit cards...snotty comments...O MY!! Just BEAUTIFUL!! I think I see a happy coming on!

  9. I just knew this would be another of your favorite flowers, the minute I saw it :-) I like them too. I remember crying when my son went off to college....now he lives in my basement and I may never get rid of him.

  10. Great Post! I can so relate when my baby went off to college I went through the family pics to put them into albums and cried for an entire day at all my childrens pictures when they were small*sigh*

  11. Beautiful it is.. LOL>. great b post, YOu asked how close I was on monday's post. I was about 5-8 ft from the little hawk when I took the picture. I had recieved a call on this little one on the ground. I went to the location and it was a safe place and as I said in the post, mama was still there caring for him so I just helped him up into a tree, snapped a few pictures and we left them in peace. The people that called kept an eye on him to be sure he was safe until he fledged a bit later..
    Have a great week, thanks for sharing your wonderful blog.

  14. Hi! I'm a first-timer to your blog after reading a comment you left on a recent postof mine. Love the beautiful flower photo -- great writing. Thanks for the chuckle :) I needed it today. I'll return often to see what other clever antics you write about. Have a great day!

  17. Way too clever, Annie! As fate would have it, three of my four children went to college within driving distance of home, so they were there all the time. The baby completed one semester of college then summarily joined the Air Force. The day she left for boot camp, I flew to Peru for a 10-day vacation; I'm not one to mope over an empty nest! She did quite well, BTW; is now a Chief Master Sergeant and will have completed 30 years in the AF when she retires in 2010. Good Lord Willing!
