Monday's Tails and Tales

HOPE Y'ALL HAD A GREAT MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!!!!












The Woodbridge Inn  - If you are interested in reading about his history of feeling his country during the war.  He's gone now but his son has taken over.








Do These Pictures Make You Smile?




These just make so so happy when I see them - inside.






You never know how far a ripple will go.  I'll send a note to three people.  Remember to keep it simple - not an expensive gift at all.

Now from Disco -


And if that wasn't bad enough - my guys dad came over and took both boys away all day (Six Flags Over GA).  And I barked and I barked and I was so upset over all of this.  I was pooped.


Love, Disco



THE LAUGH:

Love the entry and of course the photo;s did make me smile. Glad you had a wonderful day and Anniversary. We are very proud of you and the hubby. It takes a lot to stick around and solve the problems together.

My my, Disco has a rough life, but being left behind for a trip to 6 Flags? Well? probably more fun for the Disco'ers to be home!

Love ya! ((HUGS))

I am glad that you went out to eat. Steak salad sounds good.
I have been sick for almost a week now. On Mother's day my daughter mad some chocolate covered strawberries. They were delicious. My husband insisted but I could not bring myself to going out with sneezing, coughing and wheezing, why spoil every one else's special day in a restaurant.

The places you went to eat look fabulous, very special. Do you ever snap your food? I am so glad you had such a great weekend!!! Now to poor Disco...Disco!!! I always love hearing about your adventures. Our kitties, Sunny and Cher and Simba read about you like your blog comments are big adventure stories. They are sorry you had a bad weekend and send three huge MEOWS!! They tell you to try to relax more like cats, but I know their advice is useless, you are a dog!

Beansieleigh said...

Glad to hear you enjoyed your mother's day.. and just want to wish you a very Happy (belated) Mother's Day too!.. We went to my daughter's house for brunch and family get-together. It was a little colder and windier outside than we would have preferred, so we kept festivities inside, but we had a great day anyways! We've got another birthday coming NEXT weekend, so the schedule and all related preparations have really got me hoppin' this month!.. Oh, and Happy Anniversary, by the way!! Best wishes to you both! ~tina

Nonnie said...

Happy Anniversary and Congratulations! Sounds like a great weekend. The Woodbridge Inn looks very familiar to me, or very similar to a place we visited when we were in Georgia. I'm glad that you had a nice Mother's Day. DH and I had breakfast after church, hung out at home and enjoyed the weather, had friends over for dinner.

Disco, I know how it feels to be left behind when your people go off somewhere fun like that. Proud of you for expressing your feelings about it. -Trudy

Zoe Byrd said...

Betsy Adams said...

Wow--you had a wonderful weekend, didn't you? Happy Anniversary--and Happy Mother's Day... Bet both meals were GREAT. We didn't do much yesterday --but I talked to all three sons on the phone. That was my JOY... Got some flowers from my stepson and family. Hubby made us a delicious omelet for brunch. Today, I visited with one of my sons and his wife. Another JOY.

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh Disco. It's tough when you have to deal with a new human in the house, and then have to deal with another human taking your boy away. It's RUFF...

For Mom's Day, my hubby took me out to lunch after church, and then we went antique shopping!

Sounds like your day was good - and I'm glad. YOU deserve it!!
