4th Day

Billy: So I went over to Iraq! I really wanted to see what it was to be a soldier over there. I sure wasn't as hot as when Clint was there, but I still got a lot of sand in my boots! And....I learned how to fire an M16! Mom: OK Billy, I'll just let you have that one, don't want to go there! But........I just may have enjoyed firing that M16!

1st Day Billy's Travels

OK, so this morning, Billy stated to me that since he was going to be 12, on the 23 of this month, he wanted to do a few things on his bucket list. He said, he was getting up there in years, and now was the time to do it! With tears in my eyes, I said, go for it Bill! I will miss you, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do! So.....there he goes, off into the wild blue yonder.......... Keep following Billy's travels these next few days. I don't even know what was on his bucket list!

Six Legs, A Web And Waiting.............

Ralph pointed this spider out to me the other day, and suggested for me to take a picture of it. I really needed no suggesting, as I already had it in my head to do so. Sure never have seen a spider like this! The body is about 1 inch, its legs make it look much bigger, and as you can see, is quite colorful. To the right, it appears to have some sort of nest with possible eggs around it. I really wanted to watch this over a few days, but the man of the house took a broom to it. Now, I don't get my science lesson :(

Still No Answer

I haven't found out what type of bug this is yet, but I still find it quite interesting to look at!

Tunnels And Bridges

I am not fond of tunnels at all! Guess I am always afraid they are going to cave in or something like that. I think I have seen to many movies, where people are stranded in tunnels.

Bridges are somewhat OK,


Especially if they are far away,



But when you are on top, Whew! Just get me over and off!

How I Spend My Evenings

First, I roll on my back on Dad's knees, so he will give me belly rubs,

Then, I have to take a little rest,


I peep around the armrest to see Mommy,



Now I will just lie beside my dad, and let my head hang low,




And, I'm out!

Color Through The Glass

OK, so I cheated! I never took any good pictures of the foliage in MA while I was there. Actually, there wasn't a whole lot to see or the time to even take pictures. The best we even saw, was a multitude of "Burning Bush", and their lovely red color. Which, by the way, looked like an artist had just painted them! But, of course, my camera was not available then. So.......I cheated! I took pictures of the ride home in the car, through the windows! And........the ride south, was much prettier, then the ride north. Even though it was raining quite a bit.......sun not out.........it was a paintbox of color to my eyes! The beauty of what I was witnessing............blessed me.....and took away my heartache........of saying goodbye.

Lets Get Nose To Nose

Lets do some Eskimo kissing! It has not only been fun for me to take macro pics of flowers, but of Billy as well. How do you all think Gizzy, Sasha, and Madi, and all the other blog animals we know, like some taken this close up? Lucky for me, Billy hasn't gone on that uprising about picture taking.

The Best Little Traveler

We are quite lucky that our Billy really loves to travel! In fact it is the only time he ever uses his cozy little bed. We make sure it is propped up on something like a suitcase and a pillow, so he is nice and comfy and is able to see where we are going. Believe me, he would not be happy at all, if he could not see out the window.
We always have plenty of doggie snacks, food, and water in our car, so he can eat along with us. The only time we had any kind of small problem with Billy, was when we were dipping into our stash of wedding candy. Too bad chocolate is bad for dogs, because he would surely love it! I admit, I did give him a jelly heart and he was a bit happier with us then.

Lovin' The Nectar

It has really been fun, watching the buterflies in our yard! I think we probably get a lot due to the fact, Ralph has planted so much flowers around our house. So, lucky me, lot of photo opps!

Silly Names And Places

I wonder what a Joppa is?
I remember using the word scagg in high school. Do all the scaggs live here now?

Yeah, I agree, fries are dum(b) and fattening!


I guess Santa does need a lot of energy, just didn't know he had a service for it!



So, how far away is the surf? I would have liked to see it!

The Bees Have All The Attention

Julia, Ayden, and Joey are happy as Bees in honey! Joe and Jim, (my SIL's) are just plain goofy! It was a fun time at our last get together before they all headed home.

Mother & Son Dance






Clint and I were able to share quite a bit during this dance. Hopefully, he will always remember what I said to him. It was very hard for me not to cry. It was the very first time I had ever danced with him. A few precious moments just for us, as I prepared in my mind, that he now, really belongs to another woman.

The Dollar Dance

Noelle got $5 from Joey for a dance, She was indeed a lady!

While Clint was not a gentleman, and got a buck from Abbey. It didn't matter if they were naughty or nice, they still did make a nice little bundle, during this very fun dance!

I Marry Thee

The ceremony,
Cutting the cake,

Mr and Mrs Clinton Shufelt


Before, waiting, and after



She sure got him! Just look at the smirk on her face.

Walking The Dog

This is my grandson, Ayden. He had the best time walking Billy all around at his house and a playground we went to. Billy certainly didn't mind, in fact, he loved it! For being just 28 mos. old, Ayden was an excellant dog walker! I think his parents could rent him out to bring in some extra cash!
