It's the Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S.A., which is the unofficial beginning of our summer vacation season.

Buck and I are sitting on our big front porch (as we always are this time of the year) and I glanced over and saw......our first lightning bug - firefly for those of you who are unfamiliar with them. Sooooo cool. We'll be seeing waves of them in the darkness of the yard for the remainder of the summer season. Love those glowing little critters. I might have to get an empty mayonnaise jar, poke some holes in the lid with some nails and catch a few to put by my bedside tonight. Yeah!!!!

my grandson was coming over for info. on machine embroidery. surprise he brought wife and baby.

some of u may remember the tiny premie we were all worried about. she is five months old now. still tiny but tiny and chubby, sweet sweet face. she is smiling a lot and is starting to laugh out loud. she is about a month behind a full term baby. we are all so pleased she is doing well. i had not seen her for a month or son, so it was a nice surprise.

babe

When you get one, suzi, you'll love it. Our house was built in 1880 and the front porch is about 30 feet across and 10 feed deep across the front and wraps around one side. We love it. Such a nice place to be when it's hot.

we had one, screened in even, at our first house, but the neighborhood wasn;t anything we wanted to sit outside and watch. :(
I miss having an old house. So much more interesting! This house was built in 1973 so it's boring boring boring.

Good for you , Dave. Wish my hubby would get off his behind and do something productive. He doesn't watch the tube but sits and twiddles this thumbs.

A wonderful lunch with our neighbors! It wasn't unexpected but it sure was a pleasure!
