Yes, she sure has Ads, which is wonderful as dad was the love of her life, her one and only love, so I am so pleased that she has found happiness again with Don.

It is actually going to be 13 years this Sunday, July 13 since my dear dad passed away, miss him so much

I will be phoning mum on Sunday as we always like to have a little chat no matter where we are on that particular day

Cherish these times with your Mom Kylie. It is time well spent. Mine has been gone 13 years, Dad 21, and I still miss them every day. It's a blessing to have wonderful parents that live on in your heart forever.

+1. Miss my parents every day.

My smile: My blueberries! My 2 bushes were full up as always this year, but for the first time in 5 years, something other than me hasn't eaten all my blueberries!!! We picked more than 2 cups, (I usually got about 5 berries in previous years) and get to eat them all!! There are more ripening. I did find a Japanese beetle, and I squished it by hand. They are hard to squish, and I have a slight injury from it, but I have blueberries!!

Yes, I always treasure the time I have with mum, I try to see her as much as I can and it is great that we live very close to mum (I made sure of it)

We only live about a 10 minute drive away from each other, which is great

every time i start to long for the days i had blueberry bushes growing in my yard, my thoughts turn to the horrific itching around my waist and ankles from CHIGGER bites that ruined my pleasures of picking, if not eating and enjoying my blueberries. today, bluies are an expensive, but undeniable itch i scratch frequently with great pleasure, no guilt attached....
