Tarpin and Frog Stories

As I have said before, Krissa is always bringing these critters home....she's discovered that if she goes in the ditch line in front of our house she can usually find a tarpin or two to drag up to the,then she gets so mad when they crawl away again during the night....she'd bring them in the house if I let her....and frogs seem to another fav for her to gather up....about 3 yrs. ago she found a bunch on little frogs and put them in a bucket and snuck them in the house.....later that evening after dark we had the front door open and I was sitting in a chair when all of a sudden a big one jumped in the door and onto my leg......after I quit squalling and jumping around we had a good laugh about it....I told her that was the mommy frog and she was looking for her babies....
Krissa decided to turn her baby frogs back loose before the mommy frog came back in again!!
thank goodness that was the last time she bought frogs in the house.....
this is a cute little card that Krissa made at church wednesday nite....and I better get in bed if I want to get up in time in the morning to go...
Thanks for looking and have a great sunday!

A Tribute

February 22, 1932 - August 25, 2009

We have spent the afternoon saying goodbye to a face that almost every american would recognize. As we watched the television reports of this great man being laid to rest I was touched by the many people who stood in the heat of the day to wave one last goodbye as he was driven by to his last resting place at Arlington Cem. It doesn't matter what your politics are, or if you agreed or disagreed with his opinions or some of the decisions he made in his life, you still have to agree that he was a major part of our history. The days of "Camelot" have long passed us by, but for those of us that are old enough to remember, the dream still lives on.

I googled the above picture, and could not find who to give the credits to for it, but the words and feelings expressed are mine. I just wanted, in some small way, to pay my tributes to this man and his family.

thought I'd show you these pics Krissa took...
here's one of her rabbits...I love the markings on this's another one of her rabbits...hard to get a good pic when they are in the cage....
and she had to get a pic of her parakeets too....this summer we have left them on the back porch most of the time and they seem to love it....when other birds go by singing and yacking ours will sing right along with they sound like they are arguing!!! maybe they are letting the wild birds know this is their territory!!
wouldn't it be fun if we could really understand all that squawking.....hmmm...maybe not

oh well,thought I'd share these....thanks for looking and have a great week..
