AAaaawwwww..............(also, my kiddo in a full beard)

This is a rare moment for ATW. I think ATW(accidently, of course)has stepped on Neptune one too many times.

When ever ATW comes in contact w/Neptune, she runs & hides. This is changing!

Neptune even gave ATW many kisses!
ATW will say, I hate animals, but all in all, he loves everyone of them. But I will bet you he'll never admit it!

Of course, then Sampson needs "his" time w/ATW.

Shall I add, then Little-One struts on in & expects "her" time too!
This very rarley happens, as ATW will tell you, all 3 cats & dog will be seen in my room, on my over-sized-king-size, who wouldn't want to be there, it is quite comfy!

Both girls stretch out to see who can get his attentions & then all "you-know-what-breaks-out!"

Round #1

Round #2
And guess who wins.....Little-One usually runs away.............until the next time!

Fun Fun Fun til the little had to go home.........

3-27-09: I had a little visitor Mr. BJP!!!




Nite-nite time!

Breakfast time, bananas, toast & pb, cereal w/strawberries & juice, YUMMY!!















Does this picture tell you a thousand words?























Bath time & to think the "little biggin" still fits in my sink! haha
Oh the stories I'll have for his future wife! hahahahaha










Always reading when B is around & Nana was here to help w/Dr. Seuss' books: Green Eggs & Ham(b doesn't like them either-ha ha), I Can Read With My Eyes Shut, Inside Outside Upside Down, and Oh The Tinks You Can Think, and too many more to mention.







Saying good bye is tough...........B likes going in Aunti M's big red truck w/lots of bumps he'd ask for.

Bye cuz ATW.

It's about time I had a visitor! 3-27-09

Weekends are always great, but when I can "snag" my great-nephew BJP, it's that MUCH BETTER!!




























Then to tell a 2 yr old you need to wait, ya right. ATW works late, but the minute that door opened, a big yell out--"ANDREW" and then the arms open up & he runs & jumps into ATW's arms & gets tossed around!
The best smiles of all!
More pic to come!

"The Newly Engaged Couple!!"

C & H came to Gray to see Nana & myself & chat about their wedding in May 2010. We all meet up @ Cole Farms in Gray & chatted over dinner!
What a nice way to spend an evening!








Call me silly or whatever, the way they are when they are together, the way they held each other, I needed to get that shot too!
CONGRATULATIONS to my nephew Chris & his fiance, Heather!!

NOT MENT TO BE--Theory Of A Dead Man

Not Meant To Be Lyrics


Its never enough to say i am sorry
Its never enough to say I care
but I am caught between
what you wanted from me
and knowing if i give that to you
i might just disappear

Nobody wins when everyone is losing
oh, its like one step foward
and two stepsback
no matter what i do your always mad
and I can't change your mind
Oh, Its like tryin to turn around on a one way street
I can't give you what you want
and it's killing me and I,
I'm starting to see that
maybe we're not meant to be

Its never enough to say I love you
No, It's never enought to say I try
Its hard to believe that there's
no way out for you and me.
And it seems to be
the story of our life.

Nobody wins when everyones losing
Oh, Its like one step forward
and two steps back
No matter what I do you're always mad
and I can't change your mind, oh
Its like trying to turn around on a
on way street. I can't give
you want you want and its killing me
And Im, i'm starting to see
that maybe we're not meant to be

Theres still time to turn this around
should we be building this up
instead of tearing it down
But I keep thinking
maybe it's too late

It's like one step foward
and two steps back,
no matter what I do
you're always mad and I
Can't change your mind oh
Its like trying to turn around on a
on way street. I can't give
you want you want and its killing me
And I finally see,
Baby we're not meant to be

The Bucket List -- John Mayer

After watching the movie "The Bucket List" I had/have an idea of my own.
I honestly had no idea what the movie was about. I had seen previews but I guess when I saw Jack Nicholson & Morgan Freeman, two of my favorite actors, that's why I got the movie.
Boy am I taking a change in looking at all.
Here is some of MLC's Bucket List.
I think everyone should have a realistic list.


My “The” Bucket List
• Parachuting
• Climb a mountain
• Take horse back riding lessons
• Not only drive in the SPRINT NASCAR, but meet DE Jr.
• Read & write more & talk less
• Not only sing, but learn to play the guitar & sing on stage @ the Grand Ole Opry
• Be able to really upkeep my home
• Be healthy
• Run a marathon
• Perform in a triathlon
• Witness a miracle
• Meet 1 new person daily
• Scuba dive & get this license
• Pay my bills ahead of time
• Be debt-free
• Don’t ever jump to any conclusion
• Be more creative & make gifts
• Start a hobby ( i think the above & this one go together)
• Build a two seated swing for the lake
• Get rid of junk in my possession
• Own my own company
• Go back to college & study Child Psychiarty


There are more & wil add later.....enjoy the following song.....




"SAY"

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems
Better put them in quotations

Say what you need to say (8x)
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead
If you could only

Say what you need to say (8x)
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You better know that in the end
It’s better to say too much
Than never to say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to
Say what you need to

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
(Fade)
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Feels Like Tonight

"Feels Like Tonight"

You, you got me
Thinking it'll be alright.
You, you told me,
"Come and take a look inside."
You believed me,
In every single lie.
But I, I failed you this time.

And it feels like tonight.
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight,
Tonight.

I was waiting
For the day you'd come around.
I was chasing,
And nothing was all I found.
From the moment you came into my life,
You showed me what's right.

And it feels like tonight.
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight.

I never felt like this before.
Just when I leave, I'm back for more.
Nothing else here seems to matter.
In these ever-changing days,
You're the one thing that remains.
I could stay like this forever.

And it feels like tonight.
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight.
Tonight.
Tonight.
'Cause there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you.
And it feels like tonight.
Tonight.

Just An Awesome Song for Someone Special--




(no "slams" intended--i just know)
Colbie Caillat

Take time to realize,
That your warmth is
Crashing down on in.
Take time to realize,
That I am on your side
Didn't I, Didn't I tell you.

But I can't spell it out for you,
No it's never gonna be that simple
No I cant spell it out for you

If you just realize what I just realized,
Then we'd be perfect for each other
and will never find another
Just realized what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder if
we missed out on each other now.

Take time to realize
Oh-oh I'm on your side
didn't I, didn't I tell you.
Take time to realize
This all can pass you by
Didn't I tell you

But I can't spell it out for you,
no it's never gonna be that simple
no I can't spell it out for you.

If you just realized what I just realized
then we'd be perfect for each other
then we'd never find another
Just realized what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder if
we missed out on each other now.

It's not always the same
no it's never the same
if you don't feel it too.
If you meet me half way
If you would meet me half way.
It could be the same for you.

If you just realize what I just realized
then we'd be perfect for each other
then we'd never find another
Just realize what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder
Just realize what I just realized

If you just realize what I just realized

OoOoOOo

missed out on each other now
missed out on each other now

Realize, realize
realize, realize

Signs Of Spring in 46 Degree Maine!!

This is a plant that I "inherited" from my Grandmother when I moved into her home & look @ what happens. This bloom only happens once a year, now, @ Springtime!!!














This blossom usually sprouts up in the middle of the plant, but this time, for some odd reason, it's on the outside, w/a load of other blossoms to come!















Look how many more blossoms to come!

















Maybe 7-8 more!!!













Here it comes! Yes, it's always a bright orange when it first shows itself, but then as they all open up, it's a pale orange, but beautiful it is!!!








I went to the plant & actually there will be 14 more!!







I can't wait!!

Look what else is showing its face!! The Lake!!!!
YIPEE SKIPEE!!!!

A Wonderful New Friend


http://www.freewebs.com/gileros/index.htm (this taken w/D & sis during their visit in feb)
I'm not sure how to "link" D's site......but copy & paste this to your browser.

I just had to get w/D & CONGRATULATE her & her adoption for Claire! It's soon!
We meet @ Applebee's & chatted away, getting acquainted!
Then we went off to Babies 'R Us & still chatted & shopped! Ayup, I can do more than two things @ once!!!

I had my camera w/me to capture our outing, but as usual, batteries dead. Another time another place, why do digital cameras eat batteries way too fast!!!!

Hopefully, we will continue this friendship for years to come & our outings will be something to always have to look forward to!!!

CONGRATS D!!!!!

Yet another stolen photo w/another outft I got for AA


With this pose, she will be a star!!

"okay mom, enough pictures!" Yes, my family are photo freaks!

Maine Moose


Kissed by a Wild Maine Moose

Bill is standing on his back deck which is about two feet off of the ground. And he is about six one and 250 lbs -- so she is a fair sized critter.

Right beside the BBQ, too, and some people don't even like dog kisses!!!

Can you imagine??????
