4th of July pictures


This 4th of July, I have reason to celebrate. I am so blessed to have my beloved, best friend Jackie back in my life. When we started middle school 35 years ago, she and her parents moved back to England. I was so boken hearted and lost. It was a very sad time for both of us. Some time ago her family moved back, but we never reconnected. We ran into each other at a Weight Watchers meeting a few months ago. And, have spent so much time reminiscing about the past and catching up on the gap that we lost. Now we both have families and it is so good to be back together. Don't ever leave me again Jackie!!!

Jackie and Me Bill, Me, Jackie and Steve Katie, Lexi and Amy.



Lexi, the little flirt that she is, had so much fun with Katie's boyfriend, Steven.


Lexi wanted so badly to help me make the fried chicken for our picnic. So, I let her roll the chicken in the flour and dunk it in the buttermilk. Don't worry. When it was time for the frying part, I had her go play with her toys. She had so much fun. And the chicken was so delicious.
