you saved the best for last. I love that quote about the fish and the tree... wow... i need to memorize that.
i liked seeing the Mexico pics, your GS looks like he was really happy there and I am jealous, i want to hold that iguana tooooo

Shelly said...

More great pics! He is so brave for holding an iguana- they kind of creep me out.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sweet Friend...
What a wonderful share today. I love seeing the photos of Mexico. Looks like a wonderful time was had by all. Love the iguana shot. I could never look at one, let alone hold one. I do not like lizards of that size. He is one brave kiddo.

Love your quote as always. You find the best ones to share. Always gives me something to think about.

Have a great day sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Sharon said...

Fun pictures.

And I'm really pondering that quote from Einstein. Seems to me that the truest sign of genius is our humility before the Lord, and then our willingness to obey Him.

This fish only wants to swim in the stream or river or ocean that God wants her to swim in!!

GOD BLESS!

Munir said...

Oh ! he is adorable and braaaabe !!!
Those quotes are so true. The no stirring pan is good but it is expensive.

Cranberry Morning said...

Love that photo of him with the iguana! and your commentary on his sprinkles - with a little ice cream. lol Have a great day, Sandie. :-)

Nonnie said...

NO! No way! He is really a brave dude for holding that iguana.
Your grandson looks like he had so much fun.

I like the Einstein quote.

Have a great day, and thanks for the smiles.

Happy Grandson on his time in Mexico. Great! Thumbs up!

Sandee said...

I loved the laugh a lot and now that song is stuck in my head.

The lift is right on the money too.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺

Susan said...

Wow, Sandie. GS is not afraid of anything. He has been so blessed to have so many fabulous experiences!

Loved your post. The "squirrely" photo was funny.

Take care. Susan

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love seeing GS on his vacation! Having lots of fun for sure!!!

Renae Simple Sequins said...

hello Sandie! Hope your day is going well. Thanks for the fun compliments on my 'sequins' on the shorts.

I love the LIFT today. I have always loved that quote by a Genius. He wasn't just a genius, he was a romantic and an inspiration.

I loved the corn at the beginning, too. Reminded me of my Lil' Girl when she gets a hold of corn on the cob = her favorite!

Jill said...

Such nice pictures! You couldn't pay me to even touch an iguana let alone hold one! ICK!

Jim said...

Hi Sandee, I think we have a stupid tree. Mrs. Jim calls it that quite often. It is a swamp cypress and has sprung up big knots all over one side of our front yard.

Is your son on a mission trip to Mexico? Whatever it was he sure does look happy. Mrs. Jim and Karen went on Mexican mission trips when Karen was young. I had to work.

Cathy said...

Your grandson is adorable. That iguana is almost as big as he is.

TARYTERRE said...

I just read my Oprah magazine. I knew some of these things sounded familiar. LOL Your grandson is a brave fella to hold that iguana.

Sandy said...

Grandson? Adorable! Iguana? Ugh! Love the quotes, especially Einstein.
Hugs!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Your grandson has the cutest smile! I'm glad he's having such a good time.

Love the Retirement Village People!! LOL!

Have a fantastic day!

mail4rosey said...

LOL at the AARP sign, and your grandson looks very happy to be holding that iguana. He's a cutie (the boy, NOT the iguana). :) :)

NanaDiana said...

LOL- Love them all. That AARP one really gave me a giggle. Cute pictures of the Mexico Kid (wasn't there a movie by that name). Hope you have a great day- xo Diana

Terri D. said...

I always enjoy the lift!! Had to go look at those new glasses. I think I'll give them some time before I look any farther. Your grandson is just a little doll. Kinda looks like the iguana has a hold of him instead of the other way around! Thanks for sharing all the goodies!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I love the photo of your grandson holding the iguana. That will be priceless as he grows older.

Betsy Adams said...

Again I love your LIFT today... Great statement --and there's alot of truth in it...

Glad your grandson enjoyed his vacation. Great photos.
Hugs,
Betsy

barbara woods said...

Theresa said...

Wow, what a brave boy holding that iguana! I'd freak out if it was within 10 feet of me!

I love the Einstein quote! Am definitely going to have to remember that one!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Looks like your G-Son had a great trip! Lovin' the Village People:@)

Zoe Byrd said...

I have that Einstein quote over my desk. I love the iquana shot! My friend has a giant iquana...like so big you couldn't lift her...head to tail tip is about 5 feet and really really big....her name is Rosie and she hangs out with her cats!

The Boston Lady said...

That Einstein quote is wonderful. My dad worked with him during WWII, so I always have a special spot in my heart for him. Ann

Miss Debbie said...

Like the Einstein quote...great!

Dar said...

Jackie said...

OK...I'm humming "YMCA" now.
Thank you very much!

Love the last post of your post about the lift. Food for my mind's thought.
You always do that...and I thank you.
Hugs to you, my friend,
J.

Dee said...

Lots of wisdom in that quote and I wouldn't mind having a pot that stirs it's self :) Just to appease the lazy side of me.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I like sprinkles too!
