Today was the initiation day for the Grands. Leighton had Mama juice in the car while the rest of us got ourselves settled in . We were good students at sign class so this was our reward. The boys shared black beans and rice and a fresh fruit cup while Mama had a turkey wrap and Nana had the Fried Green Tomato Salad...oh, and shared it with the boys.

I headed home via the Sponge Docks and the roads are overflowing. I waded through some places where the water was up to my lower calf.

I'll update when I can. We are high and dry here so far. Our home is on an elevated area but we are fairly close to the river . Keep safe and dry my Florida friends.

Because I feel the need to carry a cell phone with me when I walk for safety reasons and, not wanting a repeat of the phone disaster of 2012 (as it shall henceforth be known), I headed to the boat and diving store near our house. "What do you have that will hold my cell phone and keep it dry?", I asked the gentleman who made the mistake of saying how could he help me.
Hope everyone is having a great week. I had a fun class today at Posh and a beginners class to teach for the next 3 Sat. mornings.

Here is Papa and his "Bella".
Today it was a very small group at the NWTampa Scrappers private crop: small as in Carla, who established the Meet Up group and myself. Carla II and Sherry stopped by for a visit and my Wed. scrap buddy, Cynthia, joined us for a bit. Although I wish more of the gals could have made the crop, I did enjoy the time to get to know Carla so much better...what a delightful woman! I got four layouts done, three of which are posted on my altered art blog.
Happy Father's Day to all those out there! E and I are biking into town tomorrow morning and I am treating him to bteakfast. Then, around 3, the kids will all be over for more swim time and chickie on the grill.
Hope your weekend is a good one!

I have known Kim for far too many years to count. Her son, Tommy, now a dr. at the V.A. in Columbia Mo. was in my sophomore English class and her daughter was on my second cheer squad. In turn, my daughter's first apartment was in the complex in St. Louis that Kim managed. She also helped Chris pick out Kristen's engagement ring and ended up the train barer (long story) in Kristen's wedding. It is almost incestuous we often joke.
KIM AND MITCH
It is suppose to be good luck to have it rain on your wedding day. It rained on ours, Kristen's and now Kim's. If we are any example, she'll be with Mitch for eons and eons. Blessings and Best Wishes to our dear friends, Kim and Mitch Day.
