MAGGIE MAE. MY FRIEND

MAGGIE MAE. MY FRIEND

I WOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT THIS WOMAN HAS MEANT TO ME. SHE JUST CELEBRATED HER 90TH BIRTHDAY . FROM THE TIME I MET HER SHE HAS BEEN ONE OF THE GODLIEST WOMEN IVE KNOWN. SHE HAS TAUGHT ME SO MANY THINGS.. ONE OF WHICH I CHERISH EVERYDAY AND THAT IS HOW TO TELL A FLANNELGRAPH STORY AND HAVE A LOVE FOR CHILDRENS SOULS. I LIKE TO THINK IM CARRYING ON FOR HER.. SHE NEVER SAID I CANT DO THAT TO ANY NEW CRAFT, SHE OIL PAINTED, QUILTED, PLAYED THE GUITAR, COOKED, CROCHETED AND MUCH MORE.. SHE LOVED TO GO HUNTING, FISHING AND HUCKLEBERRY PICKING AND MY KIDS LOVED TO GO WITH HER.. I REMEMBER ONE TIME WE WENT HUCKLEBERRY PICKING AND NATHAN PRETENDED TO BE ASLEEP IN THE BACK SEAT OF HER JEEP SO HE COULD HEAR HER “ROY STORYS” SHE LOVED TO HAVE COMPANY ON SUNDAY DINNER AND IF YOU WERE LUCK ENOUGH TO GET INVITED YOU GOT TO TASTE THE MOST SCRUMPTIOUS FRIED CHICKEN. SHE IS IN THE NURSING HOME NOW BUT HER LOVE FOR GOD AND SOULS HAS NOT DEMINISHED, LAST TIME I VISITED HER SHE TOLD ME .. THERES A MAN IN HERE AND HE TOLD ME HE JUST TREATED EVERYONE LIKE HE WANTED TO BE TREATED AND HE THOUGHT THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH, BUT MAGGIE MAE SAID OH NO SIR, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN… AND HE ASKED HER TO PRAY FOR HIM.. MAGGIE MAE I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK…

Happy St Paddys Day





Everyone could use a smile, I don't get it...kids go down the hall, see me inn my cute green stuff and just so they don't have to smile they look the other way. Well do I care, not one bit because zo bug loves the look and she's showing all the kids how cool her nannie is.

HAPPY ST PADDYS DAY TRIBUTE TO UNCLE PAT COLYER

old pictures 023UNCLE [PAT AND AUNT SHIRLEYS WEDDINGHAPPY ST PADDYS DAY TRIBUTE TO UNCLE PAT COLYER

UNCLE PAT WAS ONE OF A KIND AND ILL NEVER THINK OF ST PATRICKS DAY THAT I DONT THINK OF HIM. HIS GORGEOUS RED HAIR, BEAUTIFUL SMILE AND NAUGHTY MOST OF THE TIME SENSE OF HUMOR..HE NEVER SAW ME THAT HE DIDNT SAY “YOU WANT TO HEAR A JOKE” HE WAS A WONDERFUL HUSBAND , PROVIDER,AND FATHER. HE MARRIED SHIRLEY OBERST AND THEY HAD ABOUT A DOZEN KIDS.. I LEARNED HOW TO HAVE DINNERS WITHOUT FUSS FROM THEM… EVERYONE WAS AT ONE TABLE AND WHEN THE FOOD WAS PAST IF YOU DIDNT LIKE IT YOU SAID NO THANK YOU AND MADE A PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHE.. AT LEAST THATS HOW I REMEMBER IT..
UNCLE COULD PLAY THE FIDDLE OUT OF THIS WORLD.. AT LEAST HE WON THE MONTANA STATE FIDDLERS CHAMPIONSHIP SEVERAL YEARS/ HE WAS KNOWN FOR THE ORANGE BLOOSOM SPECIAL. OH WHAT ID GIVE TO HEAR HIM PLAY IT AGAIN..
WHEN HE RETIRED FROM THE PULP MILL HE AND HIS BAND BUDDIES WENT TO 9 DIFFERENT REST HOMES AND PLAYED FOR THE FOLKS EACH WEEK..
HE WAS THE DARLING OF HIS MOTHER. AND BEING THE YOUNGEST LIVING CHILD THE DARLING OF THE WHOLE FAMILY.
IF I EVER SENT OUT A ST PADDYS DAY CARD IT WAS TO UNCLE.. THEY JUST REMINDED ME OF HIM…
I LOVE YOU UNCLE

2 Little Calveys

2 Little Calveys

We have had 2 babie calves this year so far.. way too early if you ask me,, I think God had a plan when he made the deer birth in early june..hey its above 0 , usually by then… of course it wasnt jimmys fault he let andy tell him to let the bull out early..no no no….so tonight cowboy jim and cowgirl suesue, spent the evening till 7 trying to get to two mamas to go back in the barn where its nice and dry with their babies. After several trips down the lane to chase her back up to the barn, and wading thro slush oh and did i mention begging God to help that dumb black mama to go in the barn… AND HE DID IT…YES HE DID IT….
