My Grandson

I just had to post this picture of my grandson.  My daughter is a wonderful photographer and this picture is just one example of her fantastic work.  You may wonder how she took this picture.  Well, I really can't tell you, but I can say that it is not photoshopped.  There is a place in downtown Chattanooga that she has found where she can take it.  I don't know whether the place was created for this purpose, but she found it all the same. 

This picture represents my grandson's life.  It is how he is every day--full of life.  I have loved every stage of his life so far and he and I are very close.  I just thought you would enjoy this picture.  You don't see many of these every day!

  I have a kitty, Sophie, who won't let me tat--she thinks all that dangly thread is her's, so she bats at it and even grabs it with her mouth while I'm trying to tat.  That really messes up my tatting rhythm.  And, if I'm not tatting, she is always poking her head in my bag of thread and dragging out whatever she can get.  I have to put all my thread into baggies so it won't be all over the floor.  She forces me to be neat--I guess that's a good thing.  Oh, yes, she is all white and I have lots of sticky lint removers.  I even bought a vacuum for cat hair.

When I am tatting, she pretends to be my friend and gets up in my  lap, but all she wants is my tatting thread.  

Oh, yes, and Sophie does not like to be chased.  My grandson, Blythe, likes to chase her around the house to try to pet her, but she will have nothing to do with it.  He often sneaks up and when he walks slowly, he can get a pet in every now and then.

My Husband Terry

On Friday, my husband Terry turned 65 years old!  This is hardly possible since I am not far behind him.  He is now a member of the Medicare Club and hopefully, that will be good.  He is still working full time for a local grocery store and has told them that he is sticking around until he is 70!  That just blows their minds.  He is my best friend and has been for a long time.  I hope we have many more years together.  Happy Birthday, Terry--and many more!  I love you!
