This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

The Warped Humor and Fun I Share With My Sister...

When my sister was here, we were so busy having fun bargain hunting and gambling, we forgot to take pictures.  On the last day she was to leave, I insisted we take some pictures.  It was a great opportunity to test out the full length camera tripod I had found as one of my $5 treasures.

My sister set it up and then we proceeded to take about 40 or 50 photos... I think the first thirty were off center or out of focus.  We were laughing so hard so we were "off our mark", out of focus, her eyes were shut, or I had my head down in hysterics, trying to catch my breath...

While we were waiting for the timer to flash, my sister was instructing me to keep my jaw up so my "turkey neck" would not show and then I burst into laughter and "click" the picture was taken.  I would tell her to sit up straight so she was not shorter than me, and reached to tuck in her blouse into her pants so she would not have too much cleavage, and "click" it looked like I was molesting her.

Finally, in frustration, we decided to do crazy pictures...here is some of our fun...

She is good...I laugh too easy...

 She was making sound effects which starting me laughing again...

                                                    Spontaneous frustration...

                                         See? My hair really does look ashy gray!

This was during our first scrapping weekend.
My sister is in the white pants and me in the blue.
We call this one, 'The Three Butt Salute'.


                           Also from the same scrapping weekend...and one of my favorite pics of us...

Originally, I was going to Cali this weekend.  The city where my sister lives fills the down town streets with a wonderful craft fair called "Village Venture".  We had planned on going together.  We used to go together when I lived closer in California.  Her husband is a man of many talents and skills, and one of his skills is being a part time Pastor.  He is doing a wedding ceremony for one of his son's friends tonight, so she could not stay long at the craft fair any way... 

My high school reunion is also in California this weekend, plus my sister's daughter's birthday was the 21st, so they are celebrating this weekend.  She already told me she would be so busy she may not call me... But since we are going to California twice in November, we decided to cancel this trip.

Its a beautiful blustery day.  Cool weather and medium breezes.  Izzy and I took a longer walk this morning and I look forward to much longer ones, since the weather is cooling off.  Tonight we have friends coming for dinner and to play cards.  I think tomorrow, after church, we will go see the movie, HEREAFTER, starring Matt Damon and directed by Clint Eastwood.  I really enjoy most of Eastwood's films.

Enjoying the weekend and happily awaiting next week when my husband will finally get to retire...Have a great weekend everyone!
