In my last post I was given a blog award from my blog friend Lucy at Lucy In The Sky and one of the criteria was to tell 10 things about yourself that others might not know. One of mine was that I was an "all out hippie chick that lived in Hawaii after I graduated high school". Some of my blog friends asked for a photo -- and I actually had a hard time finding photos from those days but did find a few. The one below is me after I returned from Hawaii and flew to Texas to see my boyfriend, Dayle. He was in Army helicopter flight school. We went to Mexico for a visit and the shirt I am wearing we bought while down there. Notice the bell bottom jeans?
The below is a photo after we were married in Lafayette, Louisiana and we rented a house in Milton, LA right on a bayou - we needed a 2nd car and so this is what we got. Oh how we loved that brand new VW bus! We drove to Florida several times and camped on the beach there.
And below is my dear husband cleaning the marker, polishing it with Brasso and spraying a laquer finish on it while I arrange fresh cut lilacs in the vase we had installed.
And below is the final product.
Below are our grandsons at a BBQ we had today with our son and his wife and the boys. Hubby barbecued a rack of ribs and hot dogs too, and we had potato salad and baked beans.
We were lucky to have some clear skies and sun today, the clouds just don't want to go away. I hope you all had a nice weekend too. Thanks for coming to visit!!
