Recieved a wink from God today when I opened my mail - talked about joy yesterday.
We may not be able to give much but we can always give the joy that springs in a heart that is in love with God. Mother Teresa
So what did you do this weekend?
We went to Wal Mart and the old grandson - who has always wanted a skate board - found one for $9.00. $9.00 for the elbow and knee pads. And $22 for the helmet. He bought the skake board and we bought the rest!
Now all he mastered was the driveway, but boy he thought he was the greatest! Grandpa was tired.
He also went to a bowling birthday party. Here is mom and grandson.
I'm just playing around with Picasa - I need to learn how to make the pictures bigger.
Happy Birthday to Reese Witherspoon - wikipedia -
Witherspoon was born at the former Southern Baptist Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana, where her parents were living while her father was a student at Tulane University medical school. Her father, John Witherspoon, is a Georgia-born otolaryngologist who previously served as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army reserves. Her mother, Betty, is from Harriman, Tennessee, has a Ph.D. in pediatric nursing and works as a professor of nursing at Vanderbilt University.
Witherspoon was selected as a fashion model for a florist's television advertisements at age seven, which motivated her to take acting lessons. At age eleven she took first place in the Ten-State Talent Fair. Witherspoon received good grades in school; she loved reading and considered herself "a big dork who read loads of books." On mentioning her love for books, she said, "I get crazy in a bookstore. It makes my heart beat hard because I want to buy everything."
Witherspoon is proud of the "definitive Southern upbringing" she received, which, as she said, gave her "a sense of family and tradition" and taught her about "being conscientious about people's feelings, being polite, being responsible and never taking for granted what you have in your life."
