Saturday

Gravy.....

Well, that's not exactly what my mom said, it was more like suggesting cancer tuck itself into the derriere of a turkey or something like that....I think it rhymed with duck.

I was rudely awakened by the wild dogs at 0645am so they could go out, and when I walked out I was greeted with this.....


I sat on the deck and had coffee and thought about how G always loved getting up early when we were there because of mornings just like that one. It started my day off with a smile.

Then it was reading the paper and watching the parade with my dad ( and my brother - yay! ) while also running back and forth to the kitchen to help out my mom, who is a saint.

There was lots of food and lots of people ( at different times ) and just lots of love....but mostly, there was this....




And the rest? The rest was just gravy......

What a beautiful morning scenery!
I have a feeling that it was G who woke up the wild boys so you could share that view.
Glad every thing else went so well! God Bless!
