I've been going through a bunch of pictures and since I never seen to have much time for posting on the weekends I thought I'd share a few of those pics with y'all along with a short (hopefully) entry. Today Don and I did some shopping that we needed to do, I'm starting to believe Don....Wal Mart IS evil! Lol...I swear we can't go in there without spending $200! Gaa! Don's youngest daughter came down to visit with us and I cooked dinner for the three of us. Hamburger steak with mushroom gravy, mashed taters and a salad. Not much but it was yummy!
Tomorrow we have to go to the funeral of one of Don's co-workers, he's also a member of the golf association that Don belongs to. Such a sad thing! Bob had apparently had a couple of strokes and they'd never done an MRI of his head (really??)! By the time they did do an MRI of his head they found that he had brain cancer and told his wife he had 6 weeks to live. He passed away Thursday afternoon. When he found out how long he had left he had his wife ask Don and the guys in the machine shop (were Bob also worked) if they would make the urn for his ashes. I wish I could get pictures of it...the guys did an AMAZING job on it.
The golf assoication is having a tournament that they've renamed after Bob, and all of the guys have to show up on the first tee with a beer in one hand and a hot dog in the other lol. Apparently that's how Bob showed up every week. They're donating all the proceeds to the American Cancer Society in Bob's name! So cool!
After the funeral we're gonna go out to dinner (Mexican yay!! I've been CRAVING it!!) to celebrate our 1st anniversary since Don has to work both jobs Monday!
On to the pictures...I only did a few so this part shouldn't be too long. They're totally random pics that I love!
This is Rusty and Chief after a duck hunting trip with Chief's Dad, I believe they were (possibly 11 almost) 12 years old here. They met in the 4th grade. But this about the time that they really started hanging around together. Chief was the CUTEST little thing. He was as round as he was tall lol. But let me tell you, this kid could (can) play the guitar! The first time he came to spend the night at our house he brought his guitar and Rusty told him to play for me so he asked me what I wanted to hear. I told him "I'll make a deal with you, you play something and I'll see if I can guess what it is!" This kid started playing and when I realized what it was...he blew my mind!! He was playing "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath!! Lol...at 12 years old! They're still great friends today, minus a short period where Chief's ex girlfriend started some drama between the two guys and they stopped talking for almost a year. It broke my heart when I found that out...I wanted to go whip her little ass for playing those dumb ass she said/he said games with both of them. Chief (Brennon is his real name lol) finally saw who was telling the truth and they've been hanging out and hunting together just like old times! Does my heart good to hear that! I love that kid like I do my own!! He calls me "Momma Dee!"
Anyway, this was one day after my ex and I had spent the day with Lance. We went and walked around on Burbon Street, we stopped at Pat O'Briens (as you can tell by the cup in my hand lol) and then walked down to the riverwalk! It was a gorgeous day to be in NOLA!! I might have made two or three weekend trips up there after that. Lance came home a couple of months later and then Katrina hit, I haven't been back since.
And last but not least....
This is Rusty and Chief almost two years ago. They were at the (hunting) camp passin' a good time! Look at Chief...I would have never guess that he would have lost all of that "baby fat" and turned out to be such a good lookin' (total ladies man!!!) and tall kid lol! He was so short when they were little. Rusty's 6'5" so that should tell you about how tall Chief is! God I love these two kids!!
Anyway...that's a look inside my photo album for today! Hope you've enjoyed the pics, I also hope you're all having a great rainy (kidding) weekend like we are!
