“Our New Baby – Jaime!” “Is a BIG GIRL TODAY”

On May 18th – our little “baby, Jaime” was born – and this  is one of the very first full “FAMILY”  Photos taken at the AIRPORT!     I’m…  the “Grandma” Ellen holding  “big sister, Alyssa”…   and in front of me  and in his “CUB Scout” outfit is “BIG BROTHER, Alan” –  left of me and in the center  is “Jill, new Mama”  – and next to Jill is   “Daddy, Al” and holding our brand new  “baby, JAIME” – and  this is one of those Fun Days when DADDY and MOMMY will be taking off in  their plane – – and guess what??? – – I will be baby sitting all three of the best of best GRAND-Children! “And will we be having “FUN” like never before!”

The best part of “FLYING”  is to have your own plane and “FLY” just as soon as the new day starts! Everyone knows that good little  old “saying”  – – “Early to BED – early  to rise in the morning – – makes for  more  FAMILY  Fun Flying together and as often as possible!”

I’m a big girl NOW!”    “Alyssa… Grandma…Jaime”

There is nothing like growing up and being a big girl – – and having a chance to go to a “Charity” function  –  for the children at St.  Vincent’s  called… “KOOKIN’ FOR KIDS” – –  one of their events held in the SUMMER month of August – – and for us to all  go – – it was one of the best times we had – – all dressed in our “SUNDAY”  best – – “Grandma” even wore a hat!

The best memory of this PHOTO is when “GRANDMA” received it – – and taking a look, said “This reminds me of the days in the   “Roaring Twenties”  Days” – – we sure are dressed to start dancing the “Charleston”  one of those dances’ that  “Great Grandma” taught  to her BOSS  when she work for “Shell OIL Co.”- – as she sure could dance up a storm – – back then in those good ole days!

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAIME” – – and celebrate all week  long – –  it takes that long for you to  visit with all of the FAMILY and FRIENDS – – and enjoy as I am praying that you will be enjoying many more “HAPPY BIRTHDAYS”  in this LIFE time!     D.V.

“Friday the 13th”

“When you grow too “OLD”  – – to do – – You have to just listen to some old tunes – – that just might revive the old gal – –  back to where she was – –  when  she was  just a sweet sixteen – – or even maybe a little bit older – – but just so that the   old brain cells get – – a rejuvenation  shot or two – –  to see if everything is still working ???”  D.V.






“Just sit back… and start to remember those “good ole days” – – when days went by so slow – – it was as if  the world was not even turning – – the day’s lasted longer than  “twenty-four” hours – –  no phones ringing  – – no cell phones  – – hardly even an automobile driving by – –  – – just a whole lot of TIME – – to do nothing at all!”

“WOW” – – “Just a whole lot of time to wonder… what will I be doing maybe five or ten years from NOW?”

“Back to reality – – there is no free time to wonder about anything – – TIME is going so fast – –  can not even  take TIME to think and or wonder about anything – – the DAY is OVER – – and tomorrow is almost here!”

My Lottery Winnings – for you!

Darlene…   you are in “LUCK” – since I WON the LOTTERY … – and you are having a BIRTHDAY –  – – what could I do…   but share my WINNINGS with you! “How do you like this card?” – ‘Who” was the BIG WINNER… – I do not know…  – but my WINNINGS gave me just enough to get this beautiful card and send it    right … to you!

Just thought that I would also mention to you – when it comes to the LOTTERY… I allays…   consider buying a ticket a “donation” – – – since I have not heard of anyone  – that is in the last ten years  or even more  – –  ever winning any size-able amount of money  – I do not think there are any real winners???   Next time  – that I think of a Birthday gift – I think that I will just go to a store and buy – – something  – – that I can see – since I think the Lottery money must be sent to another Country  – since America has no extra money???
