It's 5 o'Clock Somewhere

i cannot believe how busy i've been lately.  not enough hours in the day, yet i still get things done!  only not the stuff i really want to get done - go figure!

haven't seen my room in days so i'm digging into my stash.....

i LOVE this.  saw something similar in PINTEREST and just had to case it.
my friend, conrad, just loved it and said he wanted 3 more.  he sent it to his
grandson whom he says travels to the tropics alot and that he loved it too.  it's still perfect
for this time of year as our weather is in the 90s!  

have a great day and, as always, thank you so much for stopping by!


An Irishman's First Drink With His Daughter
I was reading an article last night about fathers and daughters, and memories came flooding back of the time I took my daughter out for her first drink.  
Off we went to our local pub, which is only two blocks from the house.  
First I got her a Guinness Stout.  She didn't like it so I drank it.  
Then I got her a Smithwick's.  She didn't like that either so I drank it.  
It was the same with the Murphys and the McSorleys.  
By the time we got past the Jameson and Bushmills, I could hardly push the stroller back home.  
o my!  gotta love those irish guys!

Lion Celebrate

where in the world does the time go?  not only has it been 5 days since my last post, but it's now the end of august!  the weather this week was gorgeous..... cool, sunny, breezy and the house opened up.  this week we're back to summer.... in the 90s and humid.  that's ok with me.  the longer winter stays away, the better i like it.

i've been running around doing all sorts of things.... bingo, exercise, crafting, relaxing.  life is good.  i did squeeze in some play time, so here's one of my playing.....

this is an old (very old) lion stamp from my stash.  
the celebrate die is fairly new and don't ask who it's by.  
it was on sale at BLITSY.
i like how this card turned out.  great guy card ya think?

TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM......  The Preacher's Son

An old country preacher......had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young Men his age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects.. 

1. A Bible.....

2. A silver dollar.....

3. A bottle of whiskey.....

4. And a Playboy magazine.....

'I'll just hide behind the door,' the old preacher said to himself. 'When he comes home from school today, I'll see which object he picks up.

If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a
blessing that would be!

If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too.

But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be.

And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he's going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.'

The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's foot-steps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room.

The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table..

With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink, while he admired this month's centerfold.

'Lord have mercy,' the old preacher disgustedly whispered.

'He's gonna run for Congress...

heaven help us all LOL.
